Meth-Laced Soda Makes A Comeback Just In Time For The Holidays

Category: News | Posted on Sun, December, 17th 2017 by THCFinder

It is certainly not uncommon for the average caffeine addicted American to grab a cold soda at some point throughout the course of the day to put a little pep in their step. For some, it’s a midday ritual that keeps them from unleashing savagery on their co-workers between the hours of 2-and-5 p.m. But most of these hardcore cola consumers have likely never once considered the possibility that the beverages they have come to rely on to get over the hump of the daily grind may contain a powerful mystery stimulant that could potentially turn even the most passive office putz into a wild freaking animal.

There have been a number of reports trickling in over here at High Times for the past few months suggesting that methamphetamine is being discovered in popular soft drinks. Although this bizarre occurrence seems to be taking place predominately in Mexico, meth-laced soda could be on the verge of infiltrating this twisted little nation of ours, contributing to a new, more appropriate credo, “the Land of the Speed Fiends.”

California Enlists Cheech Marin To Help Register Pot Businesses

Category: News | Posted on Sat, December, 16th 2017 by THCFinder

With California preparing to legalize recreational weed in just a few short weeks, Secretary of State Alex Padilla brought out the big guns to help raise social awareness. And by big guns, we mean none other than legendary stoner Cheech Marin, who participated in a PSA regarding Padilla’s new website, aimed at facilitating the registry process for emerging cannabis businesses.

At the request of Padilla, Marin starred in a minute-long promotional ad for the secretary of state’s new website, Cannabizfile, a portal where cannabis entrepreneurs can register their new businesses from the convenience of their own home. Padilla said that registering with his office should be the first step for any cannabis-related business, followed by the acquisition of proper state and local licenses.

 

“The first step is always right here in the Secretary of State’s Office,” Padilla says in the video.

This Sheriff Candidate Is Running On A Pot-Friendly Platform

Category: News | Posted on Sat, December, 16th 2017 by THCFinder

The regulatory environment for cannabis in San Diego County could see dramatic change if candidate Dave Myers is elected sheriff in 2018. Myers, who is currently a commander in the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, will be running against incumbent Bill Gore, a staunch opponent of legalized cannabis.

Running on a platform of diversity, inclusivity and transparency, Myers is actively seeking support from the many different communities that make up California’s second-most populous county. That includes the cannabis community. Myers has appeared at functions hosted by cannabis industry groups and medical marijuana advocates.

“For too many years, law enforcement has marginalized and alienated the cannabis community,” Myers told High Times.

Is Canada Delaying Marijuana Legalization Past July 2018?

Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

Conservative politicians are threatening to delay Canada’s plans for legalizing recreational cannabis by holding up the passage of two instrumental bills geared towards the regulation of the plant.

Canada Delaying Marijuana Legalization

Bills C-45 and C-46, which deal with the consumption and sale of the plant, and a set of guidelines for driving under the influence of cannabis, respectively, are set to be reviewed in January. However, Conservative senators are saying the bills could take at least eight months to be properly examined—a time frame that could push full legalization until the end of the year in a best-case scenario.

“I think we have to do our job properly, and that means months,” Conservative Senator Claude Carignan told the Globe and Mail. “The House took eight months to study the bills. It will probably take the same timeline to do our job properly.”

Ohio voters may decide on plan to legalize recreational marijuana in 2018

Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

Ohio voters could decide in 2018 to legalize marijuana for recreational use if supporters of a constitutional amendment are able to get the issue on the November ballot.

Cincinnati businessman Jimmy Gould and his business partner Ian James of Coumbus, the driving force behind the 2015 marijuana legalization issue that voters rejected by nearly a 2-to-1 margin, are behind a very different plan for 2018.

Gould and James are crafting ballot language for a constitutional amendment that would create a free market system for adult consumption of marijuana.

Darfur: Cannabis Cover For Counterinsurgency?

Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

Sudan’s conflicted western region of Darfur has receded from the headlines since the wave of global concern about the genocide there a decade ago. But horrific violence in the stark desert region continues—and there are signs that Sudan’s regime is resorting to the tried-and-true tactic of using drug enforcement as a rationale for counterinsurgency.

AFP reports that Sudan’s paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF), usually used to fight rebels in the country’s conflict areas, are now boasting a massive hashish haul of 19 metric tons in the state of South Darfur.

RSF commanders said their troops seized two vehicles loaded with hashish after a gun-battle with smugglers on October 31. Security forces displayed tons of seized hashish to reporters at an RSF camp in Khartoum, Sudan’s capital. Dozens of blue plastic sacks full of hash were shown, with some bricks of the stuff spread out on a carpet.
