‘Godfather of Grass’ Pleads Not Guilty in Federal Court

Category: News | Posted on Fri, May, 5th 2017 by THCFinder

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A 73-year-old drug suspect known as the “Godfather of Grass” has made his first appearance in federal court in Louisville since his December arrest in Canada after eight years on the run.

The Courier-Journal reports John Robert “Johnny” Boone told U.S. Magistrate Judge Colin Lindsay on Wednesday that he understood his rights, and his lawyer entered a not guilty plea for him.

Boone was imprisoned after a conviction in the 1980s. Prosecutors said he had 29 farms in Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas and Wisconsin. Prosecutors said he led a network nicknamed the “Cornbread Mafia.”

Authorities say Boone fled after being charged in 2008 with distributing marijuana grown on his farm in Springfield, where Kentucky and federal authorities allegedly found more than 2,400 marijuana plants.

DOJ Reminds Its Minions to Stay Away from Bankruptcy Cases Involving Weed

Category: News | Posted on Fri, May, 5th 2017 by THCFinder

People working honest jobs in the legal weed industry are getting it from all sides; the government keeps refusing to treat them like valid business people.

First, legal weed entrepreneurs are prohibited from using the banking system, creating all manner of complications for companies forced to deal in cash only.

Despite the fact that weed businesses and dispensaries pay taxes, and in some cases quite a lot of them, they are not allowed to deduct business expenses associated with their work.

Now, in the midst of these mounting and unfair and discriminatory practices against the country’s fastest growing industry, which is expected to pull down $21 billion in earnings by 2020, a Justice Department bankruptcy watchdog has “reminded” his trustees to dismiss all bankruptcy cases that involve marijuana assets.

Chris Christie: Cannabis Reform Is a Democratic Plot to Poison Children

Category: News | Posted on Thu, May, 4th 2017 by THCFinder

You’re not an American if you don’t subscribe to a conspiracy theory. 

 More than half of us believe the government is concealing or withholding key information about the 9/11 terrorist attacks—and there are 12 million of our fellow citizens who say, yes, the world is ruled, not so secretly, by reptilians “in people suits.” (Nice suits.)

The conservatives who run our country and the alt-righters who voted for them have uncovered their own vast plots. President Donald Trump has tweeted out vague support for the notion that vaccines cause autism—a topic on which he shares common ground with Jill Stein—and if you haven’t been subjected to tweets linking anti-fascist, anarchist protesters to their sugar daddy George Soros, well, then you haven’t tweeted!

Now comes New Jersey Governor Chris Christie with his big reveal: Marijuana legalization is a plot, cooked up by Democrats, designed to poison the bodies and minds of young people.

New Hampshire Senate Committee Approves Decriminalization Bill

Category: News | Posted on Thu, May, 4th 2017 by THCFinder

You may recall from our recent article about New Hampshire that the State legislature was considering marijuana policy proposals that would loosen the State’s regulations on the use of marijuana. Some bills that were up for discussion included language that would allow people authorized to use medicinal marijuana to grow their own plants at home and add Post Dramatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Chronic Pain to the state’s qualifying conditions for medical marijuana use.

We have news on this from our friends at Marijuana Policy Project on this topic, and we are SO happy with the results!

New York MMJ Companies Sue Health Department to Keep Industry Small

Category: News | Posted on Thu, May, 4th 2017 by THCFinder

New York is home to one of the most restrictive medical marijuana programs in the country—a shoddy deal that has made it difficult for thousands of patients to gain easy access to the medicine they need. But this has not stopped the companies hired to manufacture and sell cannabis products throughout the state from filing a lawsuit against the agency in charge of the program in hopes of keeping the industry small and exclusively in their hands.

According to a report from the Albany Times Union, four of New York’s five medical marijuana producers have filed a lawsuit against the Department of Health in order to stop them from licensing additional cannabis companies in their territory.

The complaint, which was filed by the Medical Cannabis Industry Association, argues the Health Department’s attempt to expand the market “will completely overstep its authority delegated by the Legislature,” as outlined in the 2014 passing of the Compassionate Care Act.

Marijuana Munchies Explained by Science

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 3rd 2017 by THCFinder

Scientific studies are beginning to successfully unravel the mystery of why we get the munchies—THC stimulates appetite by regulating a group of neurons that normally suppress the appetite—even when we’re definitely not hungry.

Hence, the use of medical marijuana in the treatment of patients dealing with a loss of appetite due to complications with chemotherapy, cancer or HIV, to name a few.

Herein lies one of the pot paradoxes—weed smokers generally have a lower body mass index (BMI) and are less at risk for diabetes.

And we should try and keep it that way, so choose your munchies well.

Studies concluded that weed helps improve insulin control and regulates body weight, which explains why stoners don’t become obese from all that snacking.
