American marijuana shops go under the knife, focus on retail design

Category: News | Posted on Mon, July, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

Marijuana shops across the U.S. are getting some work done — a nip here, a tuck there and sometimes an entire face-lift.

Call it “Extreme Makeover: Dispensary Edition.”

Pot shops, once sparsely decorated storefronts run by people more worried about DEA raids and federal seizures than LED display lights and high-end fixtures, are coming into their own. Owners are hiring big-name architects and trendy design firms. They’re rebranding, using mood boards and open-staff discussions on aesthetics. And they’re reinventing the way consumers shop for cannabis.

Category: News | Posted on Sat, July, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

Netflix announced yesterday that they will be producing a new sitcom starring Oscar-winning actress, Kathy Bates. The show is the brainchild of “Big Bang Theory” creator, Chuck Lorre, and is based around the everyday happenings at a dispensary in Los Angeles.

According to reports, Bates character is a long time marijuana advocate who is fulfilling her dream by starting a dispensary with her 20-something year old son and a “deeply troubled” security guard.

The series is set to have 20-episodes, and was landed by Netflix after being shopped around to other broadcast, cable and streaming networks, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The series is entitled, Disjointed, and does not have a premier date yet.

Evidence Shows How a $2 Roadside Drug Test is Sending Innocent People to Jail

Category: News | Posted on Sat, July, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

The use and possession of drugs in the United States is problematic, but a bigger problem that people are facing is the $2 roadside drug test kits used by cops that can lead to false convictions.

In 1973, Richard Nixon established the DEA, declaring “an all-out global war on the drug menace,” which led to a pair of California inventors patenting a disposable comparison detector kit. After trying out these drug kits, police departments across the country ordered the field tests because of their simplicity and quick results.

And yes, the small and cheap drug tests seem straightforward—but they come with multiple inefficiencies.

Congress Votes to Make Drug Addiction a Health Issue

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 15th 2016 by THCFinder

While it has been an uphill battle convincing federal lawmakers that drug addiction should be considered a health issue rather than a problem dealt with at the hands of law enforcement, congressional forces have finally approved a measure intended to change the way the U.S. handles people strung out on heroin and prescription painkillers.

On Wednesday, the U.S. House of Representatives put its final approval on a bill called the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA), a measure that will allow more low-level drug offenders to be entered into diversion programs rather than get jammed up in the criminal justice system. It also provides for the advancement of a variety of other important programs aimed at reducing opioid abuse and overdose deaths.

Whatever’s in Synthetic Marijuana, It’s the Opposite of Chill

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 15th 2016 by THCFinder

YESTERDAY IN BROOKLYN, 33 people from a single neighborhood wound up in the hospital after smoking synthetic marijuana. Those afflicted could barely hold themselves up. Some were outright sprawled across the pavement. Bystanders said it looked like a zombie flick. Cops and newspapers called the culprit K2.

Maybe the people using it used the same slang, but then again, maybe not. Spice, Scooby Snax, Black Mamba, Bliss. Not that it matters. Synthetic marijuana is a catch-all term for a huge variety of chemicals engineered to mimic weed. Problem is, these chemicals are way too good at their job. Another problem: The people using them usually have no idea what they’re actually smoking, so figuring out the right dose can be difficult—and dangerous.
