Stream of Offenders Freed By Prop 64 Turns Into a Flood

Category: News | Posted on Sun, December, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

California voters approved marijuana legalization exactly a month ago today. But even before a single vote was counted, law-enforcement officials in San Diego County were proactively preparing to let former marijuana “offenders” out of jail.

Long one of the country’s most marijuana-friendly states, all California adults aged 21 and up can now legally possess up to an ounce of marijuana and grow up to six plants in their homes following the landslide approval of Prop. 64 on Nov. 8. 

While retail marijuana shops won’t be in business until 2018, the new possession limits went into effect at 12:01 a.m.on Nov. 9—which was when anyone in custody for a former “crime” could petition for release.

And criminal justice officials were ready.

Reports: Israel Already in Talks to Export Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sat, December, 10th 2016 by THCFinder

Last summer, Israel’s agriculture minister made news when he said his country could begin growing enough medical marijuana to export to other countries within “two years.” Would you believe he was wrong—by being too conservative by half?

This week, Hebrew-language newspaper Yediot Ahronot reported that a collection of key government officials are set to recommend Israel start exporting medical marijuana. There are interested parties in “dozens of countries,” and, according to several other news sources, talks with potential overseas buyers have already begun.

No countries currently export marijuana in its raw form. British-based pharmaceutical company GW Pharmaceuticals produces and markets prescription drugs derived from cannabis, and various countries offer hemp and hemp-based products on the international market, but the export of THC-laden cannabis is a new frontier. In Canada, the only country where a federal government permits commercial cultivation of medical marijuana, the government is expressly opposed to an international trade in cannabis.

Virginia Senate Majority Leader Requests Statewide Cannabis Study

Category: News | Posted on Sat, December, 10th 2016 by THCFinder

Virginia’s Senate Majority Leader Thomas K. Norment Jr. (R-James City) has sent a letter to the chairman of the Virginia State Crime Commission, Delegate Robert Bell (R-Albemarle), requesting that the agency to examine the state’s enforcement of cannabis policies and whether or not they’re effective in their goals.

The letter, which asks for Bell’s “input, suggestions and concerns,” follows recent comments he made suggesting he’s now in support of decriminalizing cannabis, something he previously opposed and even voted against.

“I think it’s absolutely crazy that we continue to lock people up for possession of a modest amount of marijuana,” Norment told the Norfolk City Council early last month. “We are tough on crime. It’s a question of what crimes we want to be tough on.”

The Most Marijuana-Unfriendly Place In California

Category: News | Posted on Sat, December, 10th 2016 by THCFinder

When most Americans think of California, the southern San Joaquin Valley—flat and dusty, full of industrial agriculture and conservative values, where the only fruits and nuts grow on trees and are shipped to China—is probably not what springs to mind.

The five counties immediately north of Los Angeles do their own thing and don’t much care what the freaks along the coast think about it. For the Fresno County Board of Supervisors, that includes declaring marijuana a public health hazard, and taking emergency measures to ensure their tidy little corner of California remains free of legal cannabis.

Americans for Safe Access Legally Challenge DEA Misinformation about Pot

Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

If teenagers can sue the federal government over its insufficient action on climate change, why can’t a non-profit petition the U.S. Justice Department to require the DEA to stop issuing false and misleading information about weed?

Americans for Safe Access (ASA), represented pro bono by the law firm Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, cites 25 alleged DEA violations against the Information Quality Act (IQA).

The law, AKA the Data Quality Act, requires federal agencies to draft guidelines that ensure the “quality, objectivity, utility and integrity of information” they distribute and to provide a mechanism to correct any misinformation.

In other words, stop using fake news to justify the existence of an already discredited agency.

Canada Eases Hemp Restrictions

Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

Although it’s going slowly, Canada is in the process of legalizing cannabis; newly-elected Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made it a campaign promise, with lawmakers fast at work drafting legislation (that will be available for public comment later this month). With this in mind, Health Canada has announced that it has drastically eased the process in which someone in the country can grow hemp, cannabis’ non-psychoactive cousin.

As part of the move Health Canada has issued an exemption to the nation’s Controlled Drugs and Substances Act for those involved in the cultivation of industrial hemp; this includes removing the minimum acreage requirement for hemp cultivation, allowing anyone with even a small field to grow the crop.
