New Coalition Fights to Keep the Weed Strong in Colorado

Category: News | Posted on Sat, July, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

While a band of anti-pot crusaders work to cripple the Colorado cannabis industry with a proposed ballot measure that would render most of the state’s recreational products illegal, a well-funded super group, of sorts, has emerged from out of nowhere to unleash a vicious assault, of its own, that ensures the industry remains intact.

A report from the Cannabist indicates that a newly formed organization called the Colorado Health Research Council (CHRC) has officially launched a campaign aimed at preventing the passage of Amendment 139—a proposed ballot measure seeking to impose a 16 percent THC-cap on all marijuana products sold throughout the state of Colorado. It would also force the application of warning labels that claim marijuana causes negative health consequences, including “permanent loss of brain abilities.”

Jamaica Wants Tourists to Buy Weed in Airports

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 1st 2016 by THCFinder

In an effort to cash in on the legal cannabis industry, Jamaica officials are working to provide tourists with easy access to marijuana as soon as they step foot onto the island.

It is no secret, by now, not even to the governing powers of the land of wood and water, that the majority of those who visit Jamaica do so in the hopes of getting their hands on some of that high-powered ganja to live out a Bob Marley boot camp fantasy.

It is for this reason that the Cannabis Licensing Authority (CLA) is currently developing plans to install cannabis kiosks inside all airports and seaports that would not only allow travelers to pick up a license to legally use the herb during their visit, but also provide them with a couple of ounces of weed before they head off to the hotel.

NASA Will Pay You To Smoke Weed for 70 days

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 1st 2016 by THCFinder

Usually at some point in the day (and for some of us, multiple points) many of us find ourselves wishing we could abandon our responsibilities to return back to our beds to live out the rest of the day under a quiet refuge of blankets and smoke weed. Despite the guilt of chronic laziness, a day in bed sounds pretty darn relaxing—if only we could financially support ourselves by doing so.

Turns out, NASA might have the answer we’re all looking for—although it might require a little more “relaxation” than originally imagined. NASA is currently looking for volunteers to participate in their “Rest Studies”, in which participants will have to spend 70 straight days in bed and smoke different types of cannabis, receiving $18,000 for the period of aggressive bodily atrophy.

Participants are allowed to read books, Skype, play games, as well as smoke cannabis throughout the duration of the study. Pretty much anything is fair game, so long as you remain in bed, earning a cool $1,200 per week…

So what are the exact purposes of these studies?

North Dakota Drug Informant's Family Sues for Wrongful Death

Category: News | Posted on Thu, June, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- The family of a North Dakota college student who was a confidential informant for a drug task force filed a wrongful death lawsuit Monday accusing a sheriff's department, a deputy and the county of failing to ensure the 20-year-old's safety.

The body of Andrew Sadek was found exactly two years ago in the Red River, which separates North Dakota from Minnesota, not far from where he attended college in Wahpeton. An autopsy concluded Sadek died of a gunshot wound to the head but the manner of death was "undetermined," according to the complaint brought by John and Tammy Sadek.

Their suit names as defendants Richland County Sheriff's deputy Jason Weber, who was part of the task force, as well as the county. It says the defendants failed to train Andrew Sadek to perform undercover operations and failed to "reasonably supervise" him.

Trial Attempting to Treat PTSD with Synthetic Cannabis Drug Goes Wrong

Category: News | Posted on Wed, June, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

New York University has shut down eight clinical trials for PTSD involving an experimental drug designed to synthetically imitate the effects of cannabis. A similar drug was found to be responsiblefor the death of one French study participant in January.

After showing that people suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder have an imbalance in their endocannabinoid systemAlexander Neumeister, then the director of the molecular imaging program in the Departments of Psychiatry and Radiology at NYU School of Medicine, got the go-ahead from NYU, and the funding from pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, to run a clinical trial on a poorly understood class of drugs known as FAAH inhibitors.

Details Of New Drugged Driving Law Not Pretty, Not Science

Category: News | Posted on Tue, June, 28th 2016 by THCFinder

safer michigan marijuanaA pilot program allowing the Michigan State Police and special Drug Recognition Experts to administer a roadside test to detect the presence of THC in a person’s saliva was approved in Michigan. Although the bill creating this program was passed by both House and Senate, it had to overcome stiff resistance to do so. A previous effort to curtail legislation like this was defeated in the House during the 2013-2014 legislative session due to pressure from activists (including this author), attorneys and lawmakers.

Rep. Jeff Irwin (D-Ann Arbor) was a member of the Committees that heard the bills in the House in both the previous and current sessions. He joined the staff of the Planet Green Trees Radio Show (PGT) on June 23 to discuss the passage of this bill, among other things (see OTHER ARTICLE WITH LINK).

Listen to the entire interview at:

PGT is hosted by Farmington attorney Michael Komorn, who asked the Representative to fill in the details. “I know it passed. I know it’s not based on science or logic… it’s based on ‘The Earth Is Flat’ principles.
