DEA Attempts to Regulate Hemp Foods as Schedule 1 Drugs

Category: News | Posted on Thu, February, 9th 2017 by THCFinder

The Hemp Industries Association (HIA) has sued the DEA over an illegal attempt to regulate hemp foods as schedule 1 drugs. The agency ignored a prior court ruling and clear congressional intent in the 2014 Farm Bill which forced the HIA to take action to protect American Hemp Farmers from unlawful DEA registration requirements by filing a lawsuit. 

“WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Hemp Industries Association (HIA), the leading non-profit trade association consisting of hundreds of hemp businesses, has filed a motion to hold the Drug Enforcement Administration in contempt of court for violating an unchallenged, long-standing order issued by the U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco, prohibiting the agency from regulating hemp food products as Schedule I controlled substances. Specifically, the HIA asserts that the DEA continues to operate with blatant disregard for the 2004 ruling made by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which permanently enjoined the DEA from regulating hemp fiber, stalk, sterilized seed and oil, which are specifically exempted from the definition of ‘marijuana’ in the federal Controlled Substances Act.”

Israel’s Marijuana Export Plans Are Moving Along

Category: News | Posted on Thu, February, 9th 2017 by THCFinder

The undisputed Old World leader in marijuana research, Israel’s plans to become the official cannabis dealer to the whole world are slowly becoming a tangible reality.

Last year, government ministers from health, public safety and (of course) trade gave initial approval to a plan that would see the country start exporting medical marijuana—the only country in the world to do so. Canada is currently the only other country with cannabis production sanctioned by the national government, but there is currently no international market for marijuana not handled by people with intimidating Instagram feeds.

Shipping marijuana around the world will require some cooperation from other countries—such as the United States, which has to date insisted loudly and stridently that states obey a 1961 United Nations convention that happens to ban such activities—but there’s also more domestic hurdles to clear.

No Marijuana Murderer: Denver Shooter Pleads Guilty, Cannabis Off Trial

Category: News | Posted on Wed, February, 8th 2017 by THCFinder

At around 9:30 p.m. on April 14, 2014, Kristine Kirk called 911 to report something wrong with her husband, Richard. For about 30 to 40 minutes, he’d been climbing in and out of the windows of their suburban Denver home, yelling and screaming about the end of the world. At one point, he asked her to kill him. 

It was as if he’d lost his mind. There was a gun in the house; Kristine and her three sons were scared, she told the dispatcher. Also, he’d eaten part of a marijuana-laced candy earlier that evening.

Before police could arrive, Richard Kirk had retrieved his gun from a safe. While Kristine Kirk was still on the phone with 911, her husband shot her in the head at point-blank range, killing her.

Grand theft marijuana: Carjackers in California steal truck hauling half-ton of cannabis

Category: News | Posted on Wed, February, 8th 2017 by THCFinder

POMONA, Calif. — Authorities have arrested three men they say carjacked a big-rig hauling half a ton of marijuana and led them to a pot-growing operation at a Pomona home.

Authorities say the whole thing may have been a drug deal gone wrong.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports the truck was stolen Friday in Pomona. A short time later, a police helicopter spotted people unloading the trailer and throwing large bags into the backyard of a home.

Officers arrived and found that the trailer and the bags contained about 1,200 pounds of marijuana.

Some 240 pot plants were found growing inside the home.

New York Lawmakers Pushing for Recreational Pot in 2017

Category: News | Posted on Wed, February, 8th 2017 by THCFinder

New York lawmakers are hoping that the recent legalization of marijuana in Massachusetts and Maine will inspire the state’s legislative forces to take similar action in the 2017 session.

Two bills—A3506 and S3040—were recently introduced in the New York General Assembly and in the Senate aimed at creating a system that would allow marijuana to be taxed and regulated across the state in a manner similar to beer. The proposals would enact the “Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act,” which would give adults 18 and older the freedom to possess up to two ounces of weed and cultivate as many as six plants at home for personal use. It would also give way to the creation of a fully legal cannabis industry whereby adults 21 and older could purchase cannabis products at retail dispensaries statewide.

Louisiana State University is Looking for Pot Farmers

Category: News | Posted on Tue, February, 7th 2017 by THCFinder

Louisiana State University is taking offers from contractors to grow and process weed for the state’s medical marijuana program.

LSU professor Dr. Ted Gauthier told WBRZ-TV that lots of people from out of state have shown a great deal of interest in doing the honors. He added that they expect to have about 10 finalists to choose from.

“We’re looking for somebody who will be able to provide the quality product for the patients in Louisiana who will be using the medical marijuana product,” said Gautheir, a researcher at LSU’s AgCenter Biotechnology Laboratory.

Louisiana’s medical marijuana bill was officially signed into law back in May 2016, making it the 25th state to legalize some type of MMJ program, although no one was allowed to grow or process cannabis until now.
