Pot Store Creates Chasm in Alaska Tourist Town

Category: News | Posted on Sat, September, 2nd 2017 by THCFinder

TALKEETNA, Alaska (AP) — The presence of a marijuana retail store has caused a deep divide in this quirky tourist town, where hundreds of visitors roam the streets daily browsing in art galleries and souvenir shops housed in historic cabins.

Most of Talkeetna’s stores line the two long blocks that make up its Main Street, where tourists ? many who arrive in Alaska on cruise ships and are bused about two hours north from Anchorage ? wander into storefronts like Nagley’s General Store for ice cream or slip through its back door for a cold one at the West Rib Bar and Grill.

At Main Street’s opposite end, near a river park where visitors snap photos of the continent’s largest mountain, is Talkeetna’s newest venture into the tourism trade. The High Expedition Co. is a nod to the rich mountain climbing history of the eclectic community purported to be the inspiration for the 1990s television series “Northern Exposure.”

Armored Cars and Facial Recognition: Meet the Startups Securing California’s Pot Industry

Category: News | Posted on Fri, September, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

As long as the cannabis industry continues to grow, and as long as the feds and banking sector prohibit the scads of weed money from participating in normal banking operations, a couple of California companies are perfectly happy moving the dough around in their armored cars.

In addition to the banking morass forcing the industry to operate entirely in cash, there are also plants, products and equipment to move.

“We’re either going to triple or quadruple in size in 2018,” said Todd Kleperis, CEO of HARDCAR Security, referring to the fact that recreational weed sales will begin in California on January 1.

Nevada Tax Panel Makes Key Decision on Transporting Pot

Category: News | Posted on Fri, September, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada regulators said Tuesday they’ll open up the state’s pot distribution system to businesses other than alcohol wholesalers after rejecting an appeal by a liquor group that claims they have exclusive rights to transport marijuana from cultivators to retail stores.

The state Tax Commission voted unanimously to uphold a previous decision by the Tax Department to expand the licensing beyond alcohol distributors because they have been unable to keep up with overwhelming demand.

The distribution turf battle has been tied up in district court and administrative appeals since before legal recreational sales began July 1. And it may not be over yet.

Kevin Benson, a lawyer for the Independent Alcohol Distributors of Nevada, said after a five-hour hearing before the commission his group hasn’t decided whether to file another lawsuit challenging the state’s decision.

Nevada Regulators Ponder On-Again, Off-Again Pot Licensing

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 31st 2017 by THCFinder

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada’s marijuana regulators are gathering in Carson City again to try to finally resolve a turf battle over distribution licenses that has tied up deliveries and slowed the sale of some pot products since recreational sales began July 1.

The state Tax Commission scheduled a hearing Tuesday on an administrative appeal by a group of alcohol wholesalers who argue their industry has exclusive rights to distribute marijuana from growers to storefronts until next year under the ballot measure voters approved last November.

A judge refused earlier this month to extend an injunction prohibiting any distribution licensees for non-liquor businesses, partly because he said they hadn’t exhausted the administrative appeal process.

Why Marijuana Compounds Could Eventually Replace Anti-Anxiety Meds

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 31st 2017 by THCFinder

Research into the potential medical uses of marijuana compounds continues apace. Among the most recent, a study delved into why marijuana is an effective stress reducer. While not conclusive on their own, the results contribute to a longer-term possibility – that marijuana compounds may turn out to be more effective and safer in alleviating anxiety than prescription anxiety meds.

The recent study focused on marijuana’s potency in reducing the stress response in regular users. Stress was measured by tracking cortisol amounts in study participants’ saliva. Cortisol, the “stress hormone,” is a reliable indicator of stress; higher or lower amounts correlate closely with a person’s response to stressful situations.

Indiana Republicans Warming Up to Medical Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 31st 2017 by THCFinder

It has been said that Indiana’s Republican-dominated legislature is mostly to blame for refusing to consider measures calling for statewide marijuana reform. Yet, there is now some evidence to suggest that the party’s “hell no” attitude toward the legalization of marijuana may be starting to relax to some degree, a potential shift in opinion that could put the state on the path to establishing a comprehensive medical marijuana program in 2018.

It was recently revealed that Republican Representative Jim Lucas is planning to introduce a piece of legislation in the upcoming session designed to put a fully functional medical marijuana law on the books.

Lucas—who has not exactly been a fan–favorite within the liberal community since posting derogatory comments to a social media page about women “learning how not to be” rape victims—is apparently drafting a measure that will give Indiana patients with a wide range of health conditions access to full strength cannabis medicine.
