Instagram Hackers Target Weed Business Accounts

Category: News | Posted on Sat, April, 22nd 2017 by THCFinder

Instagram hacking has more than doubled since last year with large accounts falling victim to intruders, especially accounts connected to the weed industry.

Why? Because weed-related accounts tend to have a lot of followers and happen to be connected to legit companies that are still forced to deal only in cash.

Instagram, currently the fastest growing social media network, also provides marketing tools for weed companies who are still dependent on alternative outlets due to marijuana’s tentative status. This is especially true these days with so many anti-weed crusaders in the White House trying to turn the clock back.

According to the LA Weekly, an employee of TLC Collective in Los Angeles, said an affiliated account—the Jungle Boys grow operation with more than 300,000 followers—was recently disabled for 24 hours.

Meet the Hardcore Trump Republican Pushing Pot Reform’s Best Hope

Category: News | Posted on Sat, April, 22nd 2017 by THCFinder

Matt Gaetz is a conservative Republican’s conservative Republican.

Gaetz is a 34-year-old attorney who, while in the Florida legislature, pushed for accelerated executions and blocked any revision of the stand-your-ground law following Trayvon Martin’s shooting death. He now represents most of the Florida Panhandle in Congress.

Most of us would call those solid conservative bona fides “textbook reactionary,” but back at home in Gaetz’s First Congressional District, they’re local mores. His district is so solidly Republican, it’s an island of dark red floating in a less-red sea.

The district is the most conservative in Florida, with a plus-22 conservative rating from the Cook Partisan Voting Index—which may be off by double-digits. In November’s election, Gaetz defeated the Democratic challenger by nearly 40 percentage points.

Advocates Assail Argentina Medical Marijuana Measure

Category: News | Posted on Fri, April, 21st 2017 by THCFinder

The medical marijuana advocacy organization Mamá Cultiva, which has been advocating on the issue across South America, is criticizing the new measure just passed by Argentina’s Senate for failing to legalize personal cultivation. 

The Senate voted unanimously on March 29 to legalize cannabis oil and other derivatives for medical purposes. Talking Drugs blog reports that the bill is set to become law immediately upon receiving President Mauricio Macri‘s signature, as it was already passed by the lower-house Chamber of Deputies in November.

Under the law, patients must register with a planned national program to be overseen by the Ministry of Health.

Department of Homeland Security Will Continue to Enforce Marijuana Laws

Category: News | Posted on Fri, April, 21st 2017 by THCFinder

(DHS) Secretary John Kelly says that the Department of Homeland Security will continue to enforce marijuana laws and make marijuana a major part of its criminal enforcement efforts.  This has been the fear of many activists, industry professionals, and consumers, as many of us were crossing fingers and hoping for a hands-off approach be the federal government.

As reported by The Washington Times

John Kelly is a retired Marine Corps general who as commander of U.S. forces in Latin America got a close-up look at the cartels that smuggle the drug into the U.S., said his department considers marijuana a dangerous drug, both because it feeds the finances of the cartels and is harmful to users in the U.S.
“It is a potentially dangerous gateway drug that frequently leads to the use of harder drugs,” the new secretary said in a speech laying out the top enforcement priorities he’ll pursue.

Migrant workers are making thousands trimming marijuana in California

Category: News | Posted on Fri, April, 21st 2017 by THCFinder

They sit for hours at a time, hunched over tables with scissors in one hand and marijuana in the other. The work is tedious, but it pays well -– for now. This once mostly black market trade is slowly becoming more regulated, hindering the flow of quick, under-the-table cash.

Time melds together, the sound of snipping and sticky scissors clinking as they are dipped in jars of alcohol, before they get back to grooming the weed.

Most people sitting around this table in Mendocino County are migrant workers. They flood into the region during the cannabis harvest in the fall. They are the trimmers –- those hired to cut marijuana for hours on end. Many trimmers in the county looking for work this season have come from all over the U.S. and from all over the world, including Spain, France, Portugal and Switzerland.

Homeland Security Chief: We’ll Absolutely Deport People for Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Thu, April, 20th 2017 by THCFinder

John Kelly’s tenure as a reasonable person with sound and sane views on marijuana lasted less than 48 hours.

On Sunday, the Homeland Security chief won fans in drug-reform circles with his statement that cannabis is “not a factor” in America’s drug war—not with opiate overdoses killing more people than auto accidents across the country, and certainly not with a multibillion-dollar, legal domestic cannabis industry—and then went a step further, declaring on NBC’s Meet the Press that “the solution is not arresting a lot of users.”

“The solution,” he said, “is a comprehensive drug demand reduction program in the United States that involves every man and woman of goodwill. And then rehabilitation. And then law enforcement. And then getting at the poppy fields and the coca fields in the south.”

Fewer arrests, more rehabilitation, cutting demand—wow! All this from a former Marine general and Trump appointee. Maybe the world isn’t so bad after all.
