Weed Felons are Welcome in Oakland’s Legal Marijuana Industry

Category: Tokers | Posted on Sun, August, 6th 2017 by THCFinder

In California, the Oakland city council unanimously approved the Equity Permit Program, which ensures a more diverse cannabis industry from the get go, including former weed felons. Approved last month, the new program will reportedly issue 50 percent of all licenses for medical marijuana facilities to people who would otherwise be unable to obtain a shot at owning a slice of the cannabis market due to previous felonies or lack of start up funding.

The system Oakland is implementing sets the licenses aside for weed felons, or people who are low income and either have a marijuana conviction or have lived in certain Oakland neighborhoods for at least 10 of the past 20 years. USA Today reports that the city will also give priority to other applicants if they partner with equity applicants by giving them free space to operate a competing business.

Justice Within Reach for Kansas Couple Raided for Tomatoes and Tea Leaves

Category: Tokers | Posted on Fri, August, 4th 2017 by THCFinder

A Kansas couple will finally see their day in court after years of rulings and appeals stemming from a 2012 SWAT-like raid that only turned up some tomato plants and loose leaf tea.

Some of the scarring memories for the family from the raid:

  • The father was forced to the floor, face-down and shirtless
  • Officers searched the house for two and a half hours
  • The Harte children were detained in the living room under armed guard
  • Drug sniffing dogs

Previously, Johnson County Sheriff Frank Denning and seven sheriff’s deputies were sued by homeowners Robert and Adlynn Harte, both retired CIA agents. A federal judge threw out the case in December of 2015.

Swiss Grocer Now Carries Specialized Hemp Cigarettes

Category: Tokers | Posted on Tue, August, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

Getting a buzz while looking out over the Swiss Alps just got easier thanks to a Swiss supermarket chain now selling ‘ special cigarettes ‘. In addition to tobacco, the pack contains CBD-rich hemp, which contains less than one percent THC. CBD is thought to be useful in treating pain and panic attacks, among other ailments.

While marijuana remains illegal in Switzerland, it is permissible to smoke cannabis (aka hemp) that tests at less than 1 percent THC. Most other European destinations (not including Amsterdam) only allow cannabis with less than .02 percent THC.

They sold out in the first month of cannabis cigarette sales. The Coop Cooperative is one of Switzerland’s largest retail and wholesale companies with a member base of roughly 2.5 million people and the success has led to the decision of a bigger rollout.

Gentleman Toker on Chong’s Choice Cannabis and DC Weed

Category: Tokers | Posted on Mon, July, 31st 2017 by THCFinder

SHANGO made my list of Vegas dispensaries to check out since they were also a cultivation center (meaning they grow the flowers there, too, as well as perform extraction and make their own edibles), but when I saw they had Chong’s Choice flowers on their extensive menu, my purchase was made for me. The Gentleman Toker gets to review weed personally endorsed by Tommy freakin Chong today! For serious, mister?

So Vegas is getting a lot of press right now, you probably heard about all the weed running out. It’s left me in a predicament, too, as I’m not sure how helpful my advice will be as far as dispensaries- since it’s gonna be sold at liquor stores or something- but the available products should still be the same (the cultivators aren’t separate). They’re also getting a lot of flak on DC social media about their pricing (don’t ask me why, probably cuz I went there).

If You Want To Get Higher Take a Break from Cannabis

Category: Tokers | Posted on Sun, July, 30th 2017 by THCFinder

A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog regarding the differences between addiction and dependence. I published it on social media and received some negative comments. That is what people on social media like to do but it got me thinking: they were accusing me of talking the talk but not walking the walk. In the article I mentioned how quitting weed was not very hard for me and I do it every now and then just to be able to continue to prove that to myself. Also, if you want to get higher take a break. I thought I had offered a pretty decent article and I was encouraging anyone who did not think they could quit to just try it, to breathe, to drink green tea (because that has been helpful for me), and to exercise. I was attempting to convey to hardcore smokers that it may not be easy at first but they could do it if they really wanted to (which is something TWB has posted about before).

Smoke-Free Alternatives: A Breakdown of the Latest 2017 Cannabis Trends

Category: Tokers | Posted on Sat, July, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

Gone are the days when the benefits of cannabis could only be obtained through smoking flower. Today scientists have devised a myriad of ways to enjoy the medicinal value of cannabis, including nasal, sublingual and topical delivery methods.

These novel marijuana delivery technologies are growing in popularity as new demographics of consumers jump on board, increasing demand for healthier alternatives to smoking, vaping and edibles.

Many cannabis companies are taking note of this new industry phenomenon; Apothecanna now offers topical oils and lotions; and Mary’s Medicinals has marijuana products like patches and pens.
