Jeffrey Miron and Harvard Students Advocate for Marijuana Legalization

Category: Tokers | Posted on Wed, April, 26th 2017 by THCFinder

Although the 4/20 weekend is over for this year, TWB is still getting some great submissions for content about this stoner holiday.  When this one, done by a group of Harvard students called On Harvard Time (OHT), included Harvard Economist Jeffrey Miron, we knew we wanted to share it.  You may recall that Miron co-authored a study in 2012 that was commissioned by the National Cannabis Coalition about the budgetary implications of legalizing marijuana in Missouri, my home state.

Miron stated that “The savings to Missouri’s state and local governments from marijuana legalization consists of three main components: the reduction in expenditures by police from eliminating marijuana-related arrests; the reduction in spending on prosecution and judicial resources; and the reduction in spending on jails and prisons as well as probation and parole. In addition to these savings, marijuana legalization would allow taxation of commerce in production and sale of marijuana which are currently tax free.”

How to Deal With Marijuana Business and the IRS

Category: Tokers | Posted on Fri, March, 3rd 2017 by THCFinder

The Howard Cohn Legal Group works with businesses in the cannabis industry to fortify their Cannabis brand and protect their holdings.  Below is a guest post by Abe Cohn, COO of THC Legal Group, on how to deal with marijuana business and the IRS.

Cannabis Businesses: How to Make Sure You Don’t Get Audited

With States increasingly developing Cannabis legalization programs (either medical or recreational), there is now a host of technical and legal challenges marijuana businesses must stay apprised of to satisfy various IRS regulations and requirements. Principally, the cannabis industry is held to a different set of tax standards than ordinary businesses and therefore, it is essential for cannabis business owners to develop financial habits and strategies to avoid an audit.  If marijuana businesses do find themselves in the targeted crosshairs of an IRS audit, learning how to manage the legal implications of the audit is critical.

How to find High Quality Hash in a Marijuana Dispensary

Category: Tokers | Posted on Mon, February, 27th 2017 by THCFinder

We certainly enjoy different concentrates and learning all about them at The Weed Blog.  We have posted everything from information about how to make dry ice hash to various hash and concentrate reviews like this one of Cotton Candy shatter that was processed here in Oregon.  However, this guest post by cannabis connoisseur, Here 4 the Flavor offers his advice for how to find high quality hash in marijuana dispensaries. Check out his blog for more reviews of marijuana strains and concentrates, and follow him on Instagram (@Here4theFlavor) for marijuana photos galore. Happy shopping! 

Bubble hash, full melt, ice wax – whatever you call it – water-extractions are by far my favorite type of cannabis concentrate. They can be so flavorful, so potent, but also so hit-or-miss.

 

Making the highest-quality hash requires true artistry and care – care for the product and for the end consumer – which makes finding truly extraordinary hashes more of a rarity than a common occurrence

Choosing Fertilizer for your Marijuana Plants

Category: Tokers | Posted on Sun, February, 19th 2017 by THCFinder

Choosing Fertilizer For Your Marijuana Plants

Sometimes new marijuana growers will focus a lot on aspects such as soil, strain, and lighting setups, but equally important to the success of their plants is the type of fertilizer they decide to use. Every grower wants their plants to be healthy and productive, and choosing the right fertilizer is one big way to accomplish that goal.  And, of course, we all want to grow big buds!

Perhaps you are a grower who is in need of trying a new way of growing, or perhaps you are a newbie who has never grown marijuana before. In either case, having a deeper understanding of the different fertilizer options out there is vital and can only help you in your marijuana growing endeavors.

The Fundamental Right to Use Cannabis

Category: Tokers | Posted on Thu, February, 2nd 2017 by THCFinder

The legal cannabis industry’s reaction to President-elect Trump’s nomination of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General has been mixed. While some believe that Trump will balk at the loss of jobs, departure from traditional conservative notions of federalism, and expenditure of political capital a Sessions-led crackdown on cannabis would presumably bring, others are preparing for the worst. This article explores one possible argument whose time has, perhaps, finally come – that the time is ripe for the courts to acknowledge the existence of a fundamental right to use cannabis.

As of 2017, cannabis remains a Schedule I drug under federal law – grouped together with heroin and LSD – with “no accepted medical use.” Nevertheless, the legal cannabis industry has flourished, despite the threat of federal prosecution, because of two important legal protections. The most historically important of these is the Cole Memorandum of 2013, which set the enforcement priorities of the Department of Justice with respect to “legal states”; in a nutshell, the Cole Memo states that so long as the states have “implement[ed]strong and effective regulatory and enforcement systems,” and are not impeding the DOJ’s eight listed enforcement priorities (e.g., preventing cannabis from being provided to minors, interstate shipment of cannabis, enriching drug cartels, etc), enforcement of the Controlled Substances Act against state-legal cannabis businesses and users will be the DOJ’s “lowest priority.” The other important protection is the Rohrbacher-Farr Amendment, a budgetary provision that prevents the DOJ from spending any federal dollars on pursuing businesses or individuals who operate in unambiguous compliance with their states’ medical cannabis laws.

National Academy Of Sciences Pushes For Rescheduling Of Marijuana

Category: Tokers | Posted on Thu, January, 19th 2017 by THCFinder

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) may believe marijuana is as harmful as heroin, but the science community is backing down on demonizing marijuana.

 

The National Academy of Sciences released a new report last week that reviewed 10,000 scientific abstracts and reached nearly 100 conclusions that found many medical uses for marijuana and cannabis-derived products. “For years the landscape of marijuana use has been rapidly shifting as more and more states are legalizing cannabis for the treatment of medical conditions and recreational use,” said Marie McCormick, chair of the committee and is a professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School in Cambridge, MA. “”We conducted an in-depth and broad review of the most recent research to establish firmly what the sciences says and to highlight areas that still need further examination.”
