TIRANA, Albania (AP) — Albanian police say they have seized and destroyed 2.4 million marijuana plants discovered in the country this year.

Police Chief Haki Cako said Friday that the 219 hectares (540 acres) of plants pulled up since June are four times more than authorities confiscated last year.

Cako says 248 people have been arrested for producing the marijuana, much of it destined for Italy, Greece, Kosovo and Montenegro.

Alaska Marijuana Sales Close, Pending Opening of Test Labs

Category: News | Posted on Sun, October, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Alaska is nearing its first legal sales of marijuana, nearly two years after voters approved the recreational use of pot by adults.

Retails stores are being permitted by the state Marijuana Control Board, and just a few hurdles remain until commercial sales begin.

The biggest obstacle is waiting for labs to test the raw product. Two labs have been licensed by the state, both in Anchorage.

Fake News Site Sparks Concern with Outrageous Marijuana Claim

Category: News | Posted on Sat, October, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

The “Weird News” section of the Huffington Post recently reported on a fake news story that stated four people had died and 49 were hospitalized after consuming bad weed or edibles in Colorado.

But don’t believe it.

The Boston Tribune, which published the hysterical story, is a fake newspaper, according to Snopes and, therefore, so is the story.

Snopes, a highly-respected resource for validating and debunking stories of unknown or questionable origin, listed the phony newspaper among sites that “appear to be legitimate local news bearing shocking (but fake) stories.”

Category: News | Posted on Sat, October, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

Narcotics investigators seized $6.1 million in marijuana in unincorporated Los Angeles - a bust police say was made possible in large part due to tips from the public.

Los Angeles County sheriff's officials from the Narcotics Bureau served a search warrant at a warehouse in the 200 block of West 134th Street at around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Authorities said the search was part of a follow-up investigation from tips obtained from civilian informants.

The NFL Bans Synthetic Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Fri, October, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

The National Football League has updated its drug policy to include synthetic marijuana as a banned substance. The decision to begin testing for synthetic pot—commonly known as K2 or Spice—was arrived at during an annual drug and steroid policy negotiation between the NFL and the Players Association. Synthetic marijuana joins cocaine, PCP, cannabis, opiates, opioids, MDMA and amphetamines on the NFL’s standard drug testing panel.

Two high profile incidents involving NFL players and synthetic marijuana might have led to the current policy change. Last October, former Seattle Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman admitted to smoking “Spice” prior to a hit and run car accident that left the other driver with a broken collar bone. In January, former New England Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones was briefly hospitalized after a bad reaction to synthetic weed caused him to wander to a police station shirtless and disoriented.

New Report: 1 Pot Arrest Occurs Every 49 Seconds

Category: News | Posted on Thu, October, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

Despite the fact that medical marijuana is now legal in 25 U.S. states and weed legalization is on a tear across the land, the FBI recently released its Uniform Crime Report revealing that one person still gets arrested for weed possession every 49 seconds.

The FBI report shows that of the 1.5 million drug busts in 2015, nearly 39 percent were for weed (more than 600,000); heroine arrests were barely 19 percent, and coke only five percent.

While the number of pot possession arrests in 2015 was the lowest since 1996—and certainly a drop from 2007 when arrests peaked at nearly 800,000—these numbers still seem way too high, especially knowing what we know about cannabis.
