How America’s Drug War Is Affecting Illegal Immigration

Category: News | Posted on Thu, April, 13th 2017 by THCFinder

The firebrand opponents of undocumented immigration currently agitating for a looming wall on the U.S.-Mexico border—and calling for mass deportation of the people whose labor cares for our children, produces our food, builds our houses, and otherwise keeps the economy going—are also generally fans of the drug war.

The alt-right think-tank that generates what passes as policy for the Trump Administration is a prime example of this. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has harsh words for both marijuana legalization and “illegal immigrants.”

But in a twist, the drug war is making the immigration “problem” worse—in an unexpected way. Over the past year, there’s been a drop in the number of would-be migrants apprehended at the border, as The New York Times reports. Instead of people coming north, it’s money flowing south.

Arizona: Ban on MMJ on College Campuses Struck Down (For Now)

Category: News | Posted on Wed, April, 12th 2017 by THCFinder

Legal cannabis is also legal at Arizona schools—in the dormitories and on the college green.

An Arizona high court has struck down a ban on medical marijuana at the state’s college and university campuses. Following state voters’ approval of medical cannabis in 2010, state lawmakers passed a law making it a crime for approved cannabis patients to bring their marijuana into various places—among them school buses, prisons, and state-funded institutions of higher learning.

Doing so, as The Arizona Daily Sun reports, turns medical marijuana users into criminals—and doing that violates the will of the voters who approved medical marijuana in the first place, an appeals court judge ruled.

State lawmakers can only modify the 2010 cannabis initiative so long as it “furthers the purpose” of the law. And, as Judge Peter Swann wrote, banning marijuana on campus outright “eliminates some of its protections,” the newspaper reported.

Nevada Senate Bill 344 would make Regulations for Marijuana Edibles the Strictest in the Nation

Category: News | Posted on Wed, April, 12th 2017 by THCFinder


Nevada legalized marijuana last November, and the State is working hard to get their recreational/adult-use cannabis industry up and running before 2018 – with sales possible as soon as this summer if all goes well. Because of this, there are of marijuana-related bills are being introduced and working their way through Nevada’s legislature right now, including Nevada Senate Bill 344.

Policy and rules regarding marijuana infused edibles has always been a little slower to fully roll out than for other sectors of the industry.  This has been a trend in all the states that have legalized cannabis so far.  This appears to be the case in Nevada as well.

The Marijuana Times reported:

Florida Pot Monopoly Compared to a ‘Cartel’

Category: News | Posted on Wed, April, 12th 2017 by THCFinder

Medical marijuana in the state of Florida is a real-life game of Monopoly, but one where a few players already have all the properties in hand before the first die is thrown.

While other states where cannabis is legal allow for competition among those who produce and sell medical marijuana—a lucrative position to be in, we’re told time and again—Florida allows a mere seven companies to hold the exclusive rights to produce and sell all the cannabis in the state. That’s a corner of the market that will serve a population of 21 million people (many of them senior citizens, one of the very market segments the cannabis industry is expecting to expand dramatically)—and they’re in this position, holding all the railroads as well as all the key properties from Baltic to Boardwalk, thanks to state government.

The Miami New Times is bringing attention to this “de-facto monopoly”—which is also attracting international attention from ambitious would-be international cannabis conglomerates.

Former Mexican Cartel Head and El Chapo Associate Gets Life for Drug Smuggling

Category: News | Posted on Tue, April, 11th 2017 by THCFinder

WASHINGTON (AP) — A once-powerful Mexican drug cartel leader and associate of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman has been sentenced to life in a U.S. prison.

Alfredo Beltran Leyva, 46, was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty in February to charges his multibillion-dollar operation smuggled tons of cocaine and methamphetamine into the United States. Beltran Leyva led the organization from the 1990s to his indictment in 2014, as it shipped tons of cocaine from South America to the United States, prosecutors said.

Authorities called him a “Goliath” of drug trafficking. A judge ordered him to forfeit more than $529 million, based on what he described as a conservative estimate of the amount of cocaine Beltran Leyva brought into the United States.

Beltran Leyva led a “campaign of violence and fear that gripped communities across North America,” acting Assistant Attorney General Kenneth A. Blanco said.

No sales, but marijuana ‘gifts’ exploit a legal limbo

Category: News | Posted on Mon, April, 10th 2017 by THCFinder

Jack Sargent sees a bright future in marijuana.

The retired grandfather of nine wants to grow his Biddeford-based business, The Cannabis Shack, to cater parties – think weddings and barbecues with marijuana-infused food – and open a storefront cannabis bakery. He’s already perfected his recipes, including an “award winning” Hell Sauce 420 hot sauce, brownies and infused salad dressings.

But at least until next year, when the state plans to issue retail licenses, Sargent isn’t allowed to sell any of it. While marijuana use is now legal for adults 21 and over, selling it remains a crime and obtaining it without breaking the law is difficult.
