'Poisoned pot' Easter cakes: Norwegian students arrested for flooding school with marijuana

Category: Odd | Posted on Tue, March, 31st 2015 by THCFinder

Two Norwegian teenagers have been arrested for bringing Easter cakes with massive doses of marijuana inside to school. Three teachers suffered from food poisoning and sought medical help.

The “joke” was revealed when several teachers and other employees of Lier Upper Secondary School experienced symptoms of a mysterious illness and found themselves having difficulty remaining on their feet, local media reported.

“They felt ill. They were dizzy and felt totally out of it. They were basically bedridden,” head of the local police Arne Lauvålien told Norwegian state broadcaster NRK on Thursday.

Nobody suspected the bakers until three teachers were taken to the hospital where blood tests revealed they were sickened by large doses of cannabis. At that point, suspicion fell on the Easter cakes.

“When we began to unravel it, it became clear quite rapidly which of the cakes it had been. The school knew who had baked the special cake, so we were on the trail of the cake bakers relatively early,” The Local quoted Lauvålien as saying.

The students who brought the cake to school to share with their class were arrested the next day after the incident and charged with possession of marijuana. Both teens admitted to filling the cakes with cannabis.

Lauvålien’s colleague Finn Håvard Aas told VG newspaper that they may face even more serious charges of poisoning.

Police questioned the students to find out where they had got the marijuana and what inspired them to drug their teachers and classmates.

“What we have here is someone who has not thought about the consequences,” Lauvålien said. “The teachers have actually been poisoned.”

Police say pizzeria was front for marijuana operation

Category: Odd | Posted on Mon, March, 30th 2015 by THCFinder

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Police say a St. Paul pizzeria and ice cream parlor turned out to be a front for a marijuana trafficking business.

 

The investigation began last summer after a concerned citizen reported that Papa Dimitri's Classic Pizza and Ice Cream was rarely open and didn't seem to do much actual business. According to the criminal complaint, the employees there complained about a lack of heat, even though it had a pizza oven, and typically ate at nearby burger restaurant instead of at the pizzeria.

 

On Friday, Ramsey County authorities charged the owner, 32-year-old Ryan Dimitri Brooks Sr., his 61-year-old mother, his 82-year-old grandmother and his 24-year-old girlfriend with drug and firearms offenses.

 

Ryan Brooks declined to speak with police when he was arrested. It's not clear if he has an attorney.

DEA Agents Had Cartel Sex Parties With Prostitutes While Working In Colombia

Category: Odd | Posted on Sat, March, 28th 2015 by THCFinder
 

dea sex parties columbiaMarijuana activists have been saying for decades that the DEA needs to be de-funded. The agency has caused so much misery and ruined so many lives in the name of the drug war. The money that goes to fund their failed war on drugs could be going to schools, roads, or just about anything else. A story broke yesterday which highlighted just how out of control DEA agents can be. Per Politico:

Agents of the Drug Enforcement Administration reportedly had “sex parties” with prostitutes hired by drug cartels in Colombia, according to a new inspector general report released by the Justice Department on Thursday.

In addition, Colombian police officers allegedly provided “protection for the DEA agents’ weapons and property during the parties,” the report states. Ten DEA agents later admitted attending the parties, and some of the agents received suspensions of two to 10 days.

The stunning allegations are part of an investigation by the Justice Department’s inspector general into claims of sexual harassment and misconduct within DEA; FBI; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; and the U.S. Marshals Service. The IG’s office found that DEA did not fully cooperate with its probe.

‘Some of the agents received suspensions of two to 10 days.’ Some? So not all of them were suspended? And those that were, were only suspended for 2 to 10 days? This is your tax money at work America. As many people have said on social media, if this isn’t enough to get meaningful change in our federal government’s law enforcement system, what will? The infractions occurred between 2005 and 2008.

Defense Attorney Drops Bag of Weed in Court

Category: Odd | Posted on Sun, March, 22nd 2015 by THCFinder

A defense attorney was cited Tuesday after a bag of marijuana fell out of his pocket in front of the judge, according to Connecticut state police.

Police said Vincent Fazzone, 46, dropped a plastic bag containing about 2 ounces of pot inside the New London courthouse late Tuesday morning.

He was cited for possession of less than four ounces of marijuana.

The Hartford Courant reports that Fazzone took the marijuana from a client's son before court Tuesday morning. According to the Courant, Fazzone planned to sit down with the boy and have a conversation about the pot after he got home from school.

Fazzone, who is listed online as practicing at 39 State Road in Uncasville, could not be reached for comment Tuesday evening.

Nevada Legislation Would Allow Pets To Use Medical Marijuana

Category: Odd | Posted on Thu, March, 19th 2015 by THCFinder

yorkie dog with marijuanaMedical marijuana has worked very well for human patients. A Senator in Nevada wants to allow pets to use medical marijuana too. There’s not a lot of research out there in regards to animals and medical marijuana. However, I have read some articles, and have even posted some articles on this blog, that suggest that pets could benefit from using medical marijuana. Per Metro News:

A Nevada senator has introduced a bill that would allow pets to use pot.

Democratic Sen. Tick Segerblom is sponsoring the bill that was introduced Tuesday.

SB372 calls on state officials to issue medical marijuana cards for animals if the animal’s owner is a Nevada resident and a veterinarian certifies that the animal has an illness that might be alleviated by marijuana.

What do readers think? Would you consider giving medical marijuana to your pet? If so, why? If not, why not? How would you administer medical marijuana to your pet if you support the idea? Obviously blowing smoke clouds in your pets face isn’t optimal, but what about a tincture, or some other edible form of medical marijuana? How would you determine the proper dose?

Forget Powered Alcohol, Is Powdered Weed Next?

Category: Odd | Posted on Tue, March, 17th 2015 by THCFinder

The same technology that allows you to store a mix drink in powdered form, works for THC as well. “Powdered alcohol,” as it's called, was first patented in 1972 but didn’t gain approval by the FDA until March 10, 2014.

Palcohol” takes advantage of a clever class of chemicals known as cyclodextrins. These cyclic structures of sugar molecules are known to absorb other compounds into the center of their rings. Like the Kirby of pharmacology, cyclodextrins absorb other molecules and adopt their power. A cyclodextrin can absorb up to 60% of its weight in alcohol; it maintains itself as a powder but if you dissolve it in water the alcohol gets released making an alcoholic drink.

Just as cyclodextrin can absorb the powers of booze, it can also absorb the powers of THC: experiments with THC-cyclodextrin complexes increase THC water solubility by 1000 times. THC can simply insert itself into the middle of a modified cyclodextrin complex, allowing it to be dissolve in water almost just as well as sugar on its own.

While “powdered alcohol” just facilitates people getting drunk more easily, when “powdered weed” hits the market it will be there to help victims of cancer, AIDS, MS and other debilitating illnesses that benefit from cannabinoids. THC’s poor water solubility makes it difficult to prescribe to patients who need a constant dosage. Stay tuned for the latest research updates on “powdered weed.”
