Trump’s Drug Czar Flip-Flop: Funding for Border Wall Before Opiate Treatment

Category: News | Posted on Thu, May, 25th 2017 by THCFinder

Proving America’s would-be strongman can be as pliant as a microwaved bagel when subjected to the slightest bit of pressure, the Trump administration completed a near-perfect 360-degree turn on drug policy on Tuesday.  

But even Donald Trump’s flip-flops are ghastly disasters.

While abandoning an almost universally-derided plan that would have exacerbated the opiate overdose crisis, the White House instead found a way to make America even worse.  

Let’s review.

Earlier this month, shortly after Donald Trump’s rumored favorite for the position of White House “drug czar” dropped out of contention, it appeared the president was ready to eliminate the job entirely. As per a draft budget document leaked to CBS News, the Trump White House wanted to cut the Office of National Drug Control Policy’s (ONDCP) funding by almost 95 percent.

Marijuana convictions go up in smoke with California legalization

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

Thousands of pot convictions in California are going up in smoke - thanks to the state's new marijuana law.

Since California legalized recreational pot, thousands of people convicted of marijuana crimes have asked to get their records reduced.

A lesser-known provision of Proposition 64 allows some felonies to be reduced to misdemeanors and some criminal records to be wiped clean.

Partial numbers released last week show more than 2,500 reduction requests were filed through March.

Native American Tribe’s Cannabis Consultant to Face Trial

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — Roughly two years after an American Indian tribe began an ambitious push to open the nation’s first marijuana resort in South Dakota, a consultant who helped pursue the stalled venture is heading to trial on drug charges.

Jury selection starts Thursday in the case of Eric Hagen, a consultant who worked with the Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe on its operation about 45 miles north of Sioux Falls. Hagen was indicted on state marijuana charges months after the tribe destroyed their crop amid fears of a federal raid.

Here’s a look at key information about the trial:

Florida Health Department: No Smokeable Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

Florida is rapidly shaping up as a test case in whether the term “medical marijuana” necessarily includes actual herbaceous cannabis. On May 15, the state’s Health Department ordered Quincy-based Trulieve dispenary to stop selling a “whole flower” product—officially intended for use in vaporizers, but which can, of course, also be smoked. Trulieve just last week began sales of a product dubbed Entourage,—named for the so-called “entourage effect,” the synergistic workings of the various compounds in the cannabis flower. The product is meant to be used in the Volcano vaporizer, reports the Orlando Weekly. The Health Department’s cease-and-desist letter came after local media reports about the sales of Entourage.

“Licensed dispensing organizations have a responsibility to ensure their product is not one that can easily be transitioned into a smokable form. Therefore, whole flower products are not permitted,” state Office of Compassionate Use director Christian Bax wrote in the letter to Trulieve.

‘Wait a Minute Mr. Postman’: Carrier Accused in Drug Sales

Category: News | Posted on Tue, May, 23rd 2017 by THCFinder

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — A U.S. Postal Service mail carrier in Tennessee and 24 other people have been charged in connection with the sale of heroin and other drugs.

Media reports say Memphis police and the district attorney in Shelby County announced Thursday the results of a seven-month investigation called “Wait a Minute Mr. Postman.”

Police said mail carrier Letravius Shaw helped the Grape Street Crips gang bring drugs into Memphis through the postal system. Court records show he is charged with two counts of conspiracy to manufacture, deliver and sell a controlled substance.

It’s not immediately clear if Shaw has a lawyer.

During the investigation, authorities seized marijuana, heroin, fentanyl and oxycodone, plus 13 guns, 33 vehicles and cash.

Legal Weed Sales in Maine Slow—But There’s Still Lots of Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sun, May, 21st 2017 by THCFinder

There are but eight legal marijuana dispensaries in the great state of Maine. Eight cannabis outlets to service all the weed needs of 1.3 million citizens (or, legally at least, about 51,324 marijuana patients).

There will certainly be more once the state figures out how to regulate retail commercial sales—an open question, considering the bellicose, anti-marijuana Trump supporter occupying the governor’s office—but in the meantime, sales at the eight outlets is slowing down.

Is Maine growing bored with legal weed? Hardly, some industry experts say. More likely, consumers are losing their patience with their limited options at dispensaries and turning to other sources.
