DEA Will Not Reschedule Marijuana: Set To Remain A Schedule One Drug

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 12th 2016 by THCFinder

According to the NY Times, which cited three anonymous government officials. the DEA  has decided that they will not be rescheduling cannabis. This is very disappointing not only to the marijuana law reform movement, but the broader drug law reform movement as a whole.  The DEA contends that it will publish new rules in the Federal Register tomorrow morning that reduce barriers to medical research.

Apparently the DEA intends to remove the monopoly status of cultivating cannabis from the University of Mississippi, which currently grows it for medical research. While not the news we were hoping for, it will remove a major hurdle allowing scientific studies to better understand the benefits and risks of cannabis. Ole Miss has had a reputation for providing dirt weed that doesn’t meet the specifications of researchers, who have also been stymied by the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA), which oversees all research projects.

Seattle Dispensary Heist Stopped by Security Protocol

Category: News | Posted on Wed, August, 10th 2016 by THCFinder

When a couple of armed men stormed into a Washington state dispensary on Sunday night, they had no idea that the store manager was watching the whole raucous scene unfold from a security monitor inside his house, giving him just enough time to get the police to the scene before the crooks made a getaway with the cash.

A report from KIRO-7 indicates that employees at the Have a Heart pot shop located in the northern part of Seattle were preparing to close down operations for the day when two masked men forced their way into the store waving their guns around.

The surveillance footage, which was captured at around 10:20pm, shows the culprits pushing the store’s security guard through the door before bringing a female employee to her knees with a gun to the head. Once inside, the alleged crooks are said to have tied the guard and two other employees up on the floor, while using a dose of pistol persuasion to get them to cough up the code to the safe.

Category: News | Posted on Wed, August, 10th 2016 by THCFinder

** A message from Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America: While neutral on the issue of legalization, WSWA believes states that legalize marijuana need to ensure appropriate and effective regulations are enacted to protect the public from the dangers associated with the abuse and misuse of marijuana.

"This is Your Brain On Drugs" PSA Making a Comeback

Category: News | Posted on Tue, August, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

For those ‘heads old enough to remember the anti-drug campaigns of the mid-’80s—back in a time when Saturday morning cartoons were plagued by propaganda service announcements—it is hard to imagine turning on the television back then without being bombarded by the vision of an egg frying in a pan with some actor suggesting that “this is your brain on drugs.”

The commercial, which was produced for the Partnership for a Drug-Free America, was highly successful in the way that it achieved its ultimate goal: to scare millions of parents and kids across the nation into thinking that all mind-altering substances were dangerous.

And now, it’s back.

Consultants Advise Native American Tribe To Build Marijuana Resort – Now Face Drug Charges

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

FLANDREAU, S.D. — Two consultants who worked with a Native American tribe on its plans to open the nation’s first marijuana resort have been charged with drug offenses, South Dakota’s attorney general announced Wednesday.

The charges come eight months after the Flandreau Santee Sioux destroyed their crop amid fears of a federal raid, abandoning an ambitious scheme to develop “an adult playground” that they estimated could net as much as $2 million a month in profits. Tribal leaders this week said they don’t plan to revisit the proposal, and instead will use their land to grow vegetables, including tomatoes.

Attorney General Marty Jackley, who warned against the tribe’s proposal from the start, said that a range of marijuana possession charges had been brought against two top officials of Monarch America, the Littleton-based company hired to work with the tribe.

President Obama Grants Clemency to 214 People in Federal Prisons, Mostly Drug Prisoners

Category: News | Posted on Sun, August, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

 

Wednesday’s commutations by President Obama, which brings his total number to 562, represent the most granted by a president in a single day since at least 1900, according to the White House blog.

This is especially good news for 67 prisoners who were serving life sentences—almost all for nonviolent drug crimes, noted the blog.

Michael Collins, deputy director at Drug Policy Alliance, told HIGH TIMES that Obama should be applauded for the commutations, but time is running out in his term.

“He needs to step up the frequency and quantity of commutations,” Collins said. “Every two to three months is not enough.”
