Maine’s Governor Wants to Delay Retail Pot Sales Until 2019

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

Maine residents voted to legalize recreational marijuana, but they’re still waiting for the law to take effect. Now, Maine’s governor wants to delay retail pot sales until 2019. He believes the current law is flawed and lawmakers haven’t been given enough time to grasp the details.

Why Wait on Retail Weed?

House Minority Leader Ken Fredette is sponsoring a new moratorium bill on behalf of Governor Paul LePage. Fredette believes that both the law that was passed and an upcoming bill that will be taken up next week need to be fixed. However, the adjustments that need to be made will take time.

“This option provides legislators with the opportunity to deal with this issue during the regular legislative session which starts in January, rather than having a straight up or down vote on the bill put forward by the committee,” Fredette said in a written statement.

The Predicted Rush of Michigan Cannabis Farmers

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

Are Michigan cannabis farmers about to hit gold? Or will their state’s law enforcement do everything in their power to shut them down before they can reach their full potential?

A New Green Rush?

The powers-that-be in the state aren’t holding back their opinion that cannabis is no good.

Officially, authorities in Michigan are wasting no effort in discouraging the state’s citizens from seeking solace in legal medical cannabis. Or discouraging Michigan cannabis farmers. 

The state’s attorney general has gone on record declaring the state’s decade-old medical-marijuana laws are a cloak to disguise drug cartels. Law-enforcement is acting accordingly.

A gang of drug cops just north of Detroit has earned a notorious reputation for using military-style tactics and gear when pursuing cases against registered marijuana patients. The target of one raid was an active sheriff’s deputy who committed the crime of having cannabis-infused butter in his home. He later took his own life.

Drug-Sniffing Dogs Are Being Trained to Ignore Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Mon, October, 23rd 2017 by THCFinder

As the saying goes, dogs are humans’ best friend. Unless, of course, you have weed on you… and that dog is a police K9 trained to sniff you out. From entertainment venues to public transit and airports, drug-sniffing dogs have sent plenty of pulses pounding.

So, naturally, devising ways to throw sniffer dogs off the trail became something of a necessity for cannabis users who took their stash into public. And the internet is still awash with guides, some of them quite recent, on how to avoid drug-sniffing dogs when you’re carrying cannabis.

But if a little-noticed trend within police K9 units continues, people in possession of cannabismight never have to worry about a sniffer dog busting them again.

Category: News | Posted on Mon, October, 23rd 2017 by THCFinder

The group that manages the Toronto Stock Exchange are warning businesses with ties to the U.S. cannabis industry to make sure they are in compliance. The TMX Group advisedcompanies who are in violation of U.S. federal laws regarding marijuana could be delisted pending review.

Canada’s securities regulator coalition put out a press release Monday demanding that companies fully disclose the risks to their investors. Any business that isn’t fully compliant runs the risk of being delisted from the stock exchange.

Louis Morisset is the chairman of the Canadian Securities Administrators. He said in the release that “We expect issuers with marijuana-related activities in the U.S. to address the current legal and regulatory environment in their disclosures, including any risks that result from changes in the approach to enforcement of U.S. federal law.” The press release also cautioned that those in violation of U.S. federal law are also in violation of the Toronto Stock Exchange rules.

Category: News | Posted on Sun, October, 22nd 2017 by THCFinder

Cannabis is legal to possess in Washington, D.C., but do federal employees actually smoke weed? Weed was legalized recreationally in Washington, D.C., but retail sales are not allowedjust yet. However, a headline reading, “federal employees in D.C. are buying loads of legal weed,” may lead you to believe otherwise.

Do Federal Employees Actually Smoke Weed?

The article titled “federal employees in D.C. are buying loads of legal weed” is actually misleading.

What the survey actually says is that 11 percent of the survey respondents who were government employees had bought marijuana legally. That’s government employees, not necessarily federal.
