Federal Government Admits Marijuana Legalization Doesn’t Lead to Teen Use

Category: News | Posted on Mon, May, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

On April 20, as more Americans than ever before celebrated the right to use cannabis with more freedom than ever before, the National District Attorneys Association (NDAA) released a long-awaited policy paper on marijuana in America.

The NDAA, which so far has reacted to Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s old-school, hard-line approach to law-and-order in America with a welcome embrace, called for the federal Justice Department to enforce federal drug laws “consistently” across the country (a not-so-coded way of calling for a crackdown).

One reason why federal law needs strict enforcing, the prosecutors argued, is the children—who also have greater access to marijuana than ever before, they claimed.

What Really Needs to Happen for Marijuana to Be Made Fully Legal Nationwide?

Category: News | Posted on Sun, April, 30th 2017 by THCFinder

There is a lot of water cooler talk going on these days surrounding the issue of marijuana legalization at the national level, but very few Americans truly have a grip on the kind of legislative magic that needs to take place on Capitol Hill to actually make weed legal in all 50 states.

In theory, the process of getting a marijuana bill passed into law is relatively simple; it involves a handful of meetings, votes and ultimately final approval from the President of the United States. Anyone who has ever seen the old School House Rock segment “I’m Just a Bill” has a basic understanding of the legislative grind, but the reality is many complicated variables must fall into place for any bill to prove successful.

Recreational marijuana sales considered in Utah-Nevada border towns

Category: News | Posted on Sun, April, 30th 2017 by THCFinder

In an interview with FOX 13, West Wendover Mayor Danny Corona said he would like to see recreational marijuana sold here and is not opposed to "pot tourism."

"They're already coming out here to drink and gamble," he said. "They might as well come out here for recreational marijuana."

Corona was elected mayor last year and attributes part of his win to his outspoken support of Question Two, Nevada's recreational marijuana vote. It passed in West Wendover with 54 percent of the vote (but failed in Elko County by a similar margin).

Medical marijuana has been legal in Nevada since 2000, but West Wendover declined to pursue it at the time.

Colorado Bill Prepares for Pot Crackdown, But Governor Says No Sweat

Category: News | Posted on Sat, April, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

Colorado lawmakers are taking matters into their own hands when it comes to combating the snarling dogs of the federal war on weed.

Most recently, the state’s House of Representatives put its seal of approval on a measure intended to prevent local law enforcement from assisting the Justice Department, in any way, if U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions decides to impose an all out attack on the industry of legal marijuana.

The measure, which was approved in a vote of 56-to-7, was designed to stop public employees from partnering up with the DEA or any of the other hammer-dropping agencies within the Justice Department for the sole purpose of tearing down the legal cannabis trade.

Will Nevada be the First State With Cannabis Clubs?

Category: News | Posted on Sat, April, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

We have been covering the topic of social cannabis consumption for quite a while at The Weed Blog.  Being based in Portland we would love to see Oregon be the first state to pioneer this area of the cannabis industry (and we are sure hopeful with Senate Bill 307 on the lines currently).  However, some legislative activity in Nevada this past week might make the Silver State the first to have legalized and regulated social cannabis consumption clubs.So, will Nevada be the first state with cannabis clubs?

From the Associated Press:

A bill allowing local governments to issue permits for marijuana social clubs has passed in the Nevada Senate.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the bill passed 12-9 Tuesday and next will be reviewed by the Assembly.  Lawmakers say tourists do not have a safe place to use recreational marijuana, which is legal in Nevada. They say this bill would give tourists a place to go and relieve some pressure off casinos and hotels.  Andy Abboud, Las Vegas Sands Corp. senior vice president, says pot lounges in Clark County would be located on the Las Vegas Strip.

Was Your Pot Grown by ISIS? Report Claims the Terrorist Organization Now Sells Weed

Category: News | Posted on Fri, April, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

Bereft of easy cash from the sale of oil, to which the world remains hopelessly addicted, the black-clad international bogeymen at the Islamic State have resorted to selling drugs—including marijuana—in order to fund their version of the caliphate, according to a recent newspaper report.

ISIS is like any other kind of entity on earth, be it comprised of terrorist gangsters or celebrity chefs, in that it requires money to function. For many years, ISIS relied on petroleum to fund its fledgling empire (though extortion, kidnapping and straight-up, old-fashioned heavy taxation also brought in cash).

According to a 2015 report in the Financial Times, “oil [was] the black gold that funds Isis’ black flag,” to the tune of $50 million a month.

By last summer, that figure had diminished to a mere $15 million a month, according to the U.S.-led anti-ISIS coalition, which made ISIS oil fields and tankers a frequent target of airstrikes (then again, that same coalition claimed ISIS’s oil profits were closer to $300 million a month, an estimate other sources disputed).
