Santa Fe Cops Still Busting Marijuana Users Despite Decriminalization

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 20th 2016 by THCFinder

It has been two years since the city of Santa Fe moved to eliminate the criminal penalties associated with the possession of marijuana by passing an ordinance that forces law enforcement to issue tickets to those people caught holding a little weed. However, recent reports indicate that in spite of the policy change, local cops are still arresting people for this petty infraction and jamming them up in the criminal justice system.

It seems that although the city’s governmental forces have all agreed that busting tokers is a waste of time and valuable resources, the Santa Fe Police Department has been running a clever little racket in which officers are leaning on state law when it comes to how they handles incidents involving petty marijuana offenses.

El Chapo’s Son Abducted by Cartel Rivals

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

The Mexican state of Jalisco is bracing for a feared explosion of violencie after the son of the country’s top drug lord was kidnapped by rivals. Jesús Alfredo Guzmán Salazar was seized by gunmen along with some 10 of his minions as they dined at an upscale restaurant in the resort town of Puerta Vallarta on Aug. 15. Guzmán Salazar is the son of Joaquín “Chapo” Guzmán, imprisoned kingpin of the Sinaloa Cartel. Jalisco authorities believe the kidnapping was perpetrated by the state’s reigning criminal machine, Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG), which has been resisting an incursion by the Sinaloa competition.

Jesús Alfredo was charged in a US court in 2009 with drug trafficking, and has been the public face of the Sinaloa Cartel on social media since his dad’s imprisonment.

What Is Hemp “Graphene”

Category: News | Posted on Tue, August, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

The more we are able to research and explore the uses of cannabis, the more we realize it’s limitless possibilities.  In this article, posted by Dope Magazine, I explain one of the latest and most innovative uses for the cannabis plant yet, a graphene-like substance that is being created with hemp.  We must continue to push forward with cannabis law reform in our country to allow more research like this to be done, and to allow more industrial hemp fields to be grown in this country.  Findings like this are truly changing our perception about the capabilities of this plant, and about modern technology and sustainability overall.


Although industrial hemp is only permitted to be grown in a few areas within the United States, this variety of Cannabis sativa never ceases to amaze. Hemp’s many uses from food to paper to modern technologies such as hempcrete are just astounding. The most ground breaking of these though, is hemp “graphene.”

Ohio Supreme Court: Lawyers Can’t Help Medical Marijuana Industry

Category: News | Posted on Sun, August, 14th 2016 by THCFinder

Although cannabis is now legal in Ohio for medicinal use, a panel for the state’s Supreme Court said recently that lawyers are not permitted to provide legal services for those groups and individuals interested in getting into the business of medical marijuana because cultivation, sale and use of herb still remains illegal in the eyes of the federal government.

According to a ruling handed down last week by the Ohio Supreme Court’s Board of Professional Conduct, attorneys are not only prohibited from lending legal aid to those people working to establish a legitimate cannabis operation, but these professionals are also forbade from using medical marijuana even if their doctor provides them with a recommendation.
