Category: Odd | Posted on Fri, October, 30th 2015 by THCFinder

A San Francisco dentist whose practice is in the heart of the Mission District, and who has spoken openly about the importance of good dental hygiene for pot smokers, was arrested in a New York City drug sting, court documents show.

Jerome Weitz, 63, who has been working in San Francisco since 1982, was arrested in a Yonkers, N.Y., apartment this week after allegedly being in possession of more than $10,000 cash and on his way to receive payment for a large shipment of marijuana, according to court documents. He was arrested after exchanging texts with his dealer, prosecutors said.

Weitz was arrested by the Narcotic Borough Manhattan North. A total of 11 "vacuum sealed plastic bags" weighing about ten pounds were recovered from a duffle bag in the living room where the dentist was staying, the detective wrote in documents obtained by NBC Bay Area.

50 Pounds of Marijuana Shipped to Wrong New Jersey Address

Category: Odd | Posted on Fri, October, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

If you were expecting 50 pounds of marijuana in the mail, a New Jersey police department would like you to drop by.

Police in Hazlet, on the northern coast of New Jersey, responded to a home Tuesday where the owner claimed they had received several packages addressed to somebody who didn't live there, police said on their Facebook page.

Officers opened the boxes in an attempt to find the name of the intended recipient. Instead, they found about 50 pounds of pot.

The department seized the marijuana, which is worth about $100,000, said Hazlet detective Ted Wittke.

Is Marijuana Shaming A Real Thing?

Category: Odd | Posted on Sat, October, 10th 2015 by THCFinder

raskal og marijuana strainWith the social justice movement gaining more and more momentum, the word “shaming” continuously gets thrown around a lot. There is fat-shaming, skinny-shaming, slut-shaming, virgin-shaming, tattoo-shaming, shame-shaming. Shame-shaming-shaming, and everything else under the sun. While shaming people for their ways of life or their appearance is certainly something that is completely unnecessary and immature, is marijuana-shaming really a thing?

A high school student from Ohio, Hank Sigel, accused the administration of marijuana-shaming when his friend, Hayden Long, commit suicide after being caught with marijuana by the school. According to Sigel, the school was negligent in their dealings with Hayden, and said that the threats by the school were overboard.

However, is this really shaming? I mean, isn’t shaming downplaying what is going on here? To shame someone means to demean or embarrass someone for a choice or appearance, but that isn’t what is going on here. The student was threatened with suspension, criminal charges, a driver’s license suspension, and sports suspension. Furthermore, most public universities won’t accept him, and he is immediately disqualified from most student loans.

This isn’t shaming. This isn’t just embarrassing or demeaning a person (which, yes, is still certainly wrong). This is physically and actively destroying their lives. This is treating a high school student as a gang member. This is treating a kid as an adult. This an active injustice on the part of our legal system, not some kind of social injustice done with unkind words or gestures.

Longford man caught hurling cannabis plants out of his window after police knocked on his door

Category: Odd | Posted on Mon, September, 28th 2015 by THCFinder

As police tried to get into a first-floor flat the occupier was busy hurling cannabis plants out of the window.

And there were so many plants that they formed a pile which reached the window of the flat below, a jury heard.

When he was arrested Shamraiz Khan claimed it was not the pot he was interested in, but the pots the plants were in.

But the jury at Warwick Crown Court rejected his “fairy story” and found him guilty of possessing the cannabis with intent to supply it.

Khan, aged 33, of Coney Lane, Longford, Coventry, who was cleared of being involved in the cultivation of the plants, was remanded in custody while a pre-sentence report is prepared on him.

26-pound bundle of marijuana falls from sky and through Arizona family's carport, destroying dog home

Category: Odd | Posted on Sun, September, 27th 2015 by THCFinder

Maya Donnelly awoke to what sounded like thunder in the early morning hours, but dismissed it as a typical monsoon storm and went back to sleep.
 
Later that morning, she looked in the carport at her home in Nogales, near the US-Mexico border, and saw pieces of wood on the ground. She found a bulky bundle wrapped in black plastic.
Inside was roughly 26 pounds of marijuana - a package that authorities say is worth $10,000 and likely dropped there accidentally by a drug smuggler's aircraft.
 
Donnelly told Nogales International: 'It's all right on top of our dog's house. It just made a perfectly round hole through our carport.'
The family's German shepherd, called Hulk, was not in his plastic pet crate at the time. 'Thank goodness he is a wanderer at night and was not in his house,' Maya said. 'He was probably at the gate watching the plane go by.'

Can Someone Fail A Drug Test For Simply Touching Marijuana?

Category: Odd | Posted on Sat, September, 12th 2015 by THCFinder

marijuana jointEveryone knows that a person can fail a drug test for consuming marijuana. A lot of people are surprised to find out that you can also fail a drug test for being around too much second hand marijuana smoke (for an article about that, click this link here). A scientific study was recently conducted which found that even breaking up marijuana can result in a failed drug test. Per Culture Magazine:

A recent study conducted in Germany proves that even something as simple as breaking up cannabis and having residue on your fingers can cause a failed drug test.

This study was conducted by the University of Freiburg. The science behind the idea was simple: ten participants had to role one joint a day, and take a urine test every day. The study showed that by the middle of the study, most of those involved tested positive for THCA and THC, and four weeks after the test, the THC levels were still noticeable when hair was tested. This means that a month after touching cannabis, you can still test positive in some ways for the substance.

It takes quite a bit of marijuana handling to fail a drug test, but it is definitely possible, as proven by this case study. This is very significant for people that work in the cannabis industry, but think they can still pass a drug test because they don’t consume marijuana. People that are on probation or are required to be involved in some type of diversion program are who I think of off the top of my head. If you handle marijuana too much, you will absorb THC via your hands. Moral of the story – make sure to wear quality gloves if you have a need to handle a lot of cannabis but also need to pass a drug test.
