The Marijuana Show Could Become The Shark Tank for Ganjapreneurs

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 13th 2016 by THCFinder

Spirits were high at the Southern California Cannabis Conference & Expo, held in San Diego on Aug. 7. It wasn’t the crowd you might expect at a cannabis convention. While Sublime songs did make the occasional appearance, most gathered were there to talk the big business of marijuana.

The expo brought out dozens of cannabis-based businesses, some so huge they trade on the New York Stock Exchange, such as Medical Marijuana Inc., whose assets total more than $216 million, according to its 2015 annual report and whose main distributor, HempMeds, had a huge booth at the conference. Others are so small they consist of a mom and daughter cooking edibles in their kitchen and packaging them to sell at dispensaries.

UK and Spain Break up Eurotunnel Weed Smuggling Operation

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 13th 2016 by THCFinder

It is not the first time Spain and England’s police and secret services have collaborated to bring down drug kingpins and other crime bosses.

This week, after a year-long investigation, police from both countries broke up a smuggling operation that was using cars stolen from British drivers to transport huge shipments of weed from Spain to the UK via the Eurotunnel, orChunnel as it’s known.

The gang’s modus operandi was to steal cars in Britain, drive them to the Barcelona area, where, Spanish police said, they would let them “cool off” for a few months.

DEA Will Not Reschedule Marijuana: Set To Remain A Schedule One Drug

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 12th 2016 by THCFinder

According to the NY Times, which cited three anonymous government officials. the DEA  has decided that they will not be rescheduling cannabis. This is very disappointing not only to the marijuana law reform movement, but the broader drug law reform movement as a whole.  The DEA contends that it will publish new rules in the Federal Register tomorrow morning that reduce barriers to medical research.

Apparently the DEA intends to remove the monopoly status of cultivating cannabis from the University of Mississippi, which currently grows it for medical research. While not the news we were hoping for, it will remove a major hurdle allowing scientific studies to better understand the benefits and risks of cannabis. Ole Miss has had a reputation for providing dirt weed that doesn’t meet the specifications of researchers, who have also been stymied by the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA), which oversees all research projects.

Subway Employee In Jail After Dosing Police Officer's Drink With Meth and THC

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 12th 2016 by THCFinder

Subway, “Eat Meth?”

An employee with the national sandwich chain Subway is in some serious trouble with the law after he allegedly slipped a dose of methamphetamine and THC into the beverage of a local law enforcement officer, sending the cop on high-speed ride to the hospital.

It all began on Monday afternoon when a sergeant with the Layton Police Department in Utah rolled through the drive-thru at a local Subway restaurant to grab some lunch. Inside the store, 18-year-old Tanis Lloyd Ukena was responsible for putting together the officer’s order. But rather than simply completing the transaction, the teen decided it would be a clown shoe riot to lace the officer’s drink with some mind and body-altering substances.
