Cannabis

CANNABIS

Some people are against legalizing it, many more are in favor. And we know overall it's going to be legalized. Whether you want to partake or not. It's just the right thing to do. Because if cigaretts can be legal why not weed. So there are a lot of devlopements across the USA and in other parts of the world, along with sub-culture that had formed out it.

Can cannabis social equity programs work? Palm Springs is setting one up

Melissa Daniels, Palm Springs Desert Sun 5 hrs ago

USA TODAY logoCan cannabis social equity programs work? Palm Springs is setting one up

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. – When Willie Holland first attempted to open a medical cannabis dispensary a few years back, the city of Palm Springs denied his application.

Cannabis social equity programs, like the one Holland applied to in the city of Palm Springs, aim to create a pathway to enter the legalized industry for people who have been convicted of cannabis-related offenses.

More broadly, these programs looks to open doors for all kinds of people who either could not afford the expenses associated with starting these businesses or who were disqualified from the regular application process because of cannabis-related criminal histories.

Acknowledging the need to diversify the industry, the state has awarded at least $40 million in grants to cities and counties to be put toward cannabis social equity programs in the past year. But despite the relative popularity of implementing these programs, some experts say these programs don’t go far enough to achieve parity. Advocates want to see business training and safer financing opportunities to give applicants a fairer shot at operating a legal business.

What are social equity programs? ...

Willie Holland talks about his cannabis dispensary and lounge Green Dragon in downtown Palm Springs, July 21, 2020.© Jay Calderon/The Desert Sun Willie Holland talks about his cannabis dispensary and lounge Green Dragon in downtown Palm Springs, July 21, 2020.

He'd been convicted of a misdemeanor cannabis-related possession charge in the past, and its presence on his record prevented him from getting a license.

It was only in 2017, after Holland paired up with a partner who held a majority stake in their business, that he was able to move forward with Green Dragon, a recreational dispensary on Palm Canyon Drive, which opened last year.

“I was born and raised in this city, so I didn’t want to go somewhere else,” he said.

But Holland, never one to back down from his dreams, still wanted a shop to call his own. So this summer, Holland became the first to apply for a social equity cannabis license in Palm Springs. And it paid off: His dispensary, Holland Pharms, is slated to open up on Palm Canyon Drive later this year, right in the heart of his hometown.

I think legalization is the right thing to do, even if one is not interested in consuming it.

Lots of new jobs, lots of new products , and of course more taxes for the government, plus you have quality control and no more laced cannabis that was grown and harvested using questionable methods.

It´s a win-win situation for everybody but I think it is going to take a long time until more countries open up to the new possibilities. In many states of the USA and in many countries , such as Singapore and Malaysia, sentences for cannabis use are still extremely harsh. Even in some western countries.

So it might probably take at least five or ten years until we see a change on a global level.

There´s hope though, Pakistan for example changed some of its laws a couple of days ago and wants to invest in industrial hemp and medical cannabis. Not sure if it´s going to have an impact on recreational use but it´s a start.

  • Hundreds of bags of cannabis were dropped from a drone as it flew over Rabin Square in central Tel Aviv on Thursday.

  • Surprised pedestrians rushed to scoop up the illicit bounty.
  • According to The Jerusalem Post, two people suspected of operating the drone were arrested.

Cannabis fell from the sky over Israel, after a drone released hundreds of bags of the drug over central Tel Aviv on Thursday.

Dozens of surprised people rushed out into the busy street to collect the packets, which were dropped by a group called "Green Drone," according to the Jerusalem Post.

Green Drone advocates for the legalization of marijuana in Israel, where the substance is still largely illegal, except in certain medical situations.

Just before the drop, the group posted a message on the messaging app Telegram, warning of what they were about to do.

"It's time my dear brothers. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's the green drone, handing out free cannabis from the sky... Enjoy my beloved brothers, this is your pilot brother, making sure we all get some free love," the message read.

The Jerusalem Post said that the police arrested two people suspected of operating the drone, and said that they were being interrogated.

However, Green Drone has promised to continue dropping a kilo of marijuana a week, over different parts of the country.

Israeli legislators are currently debating one bill that would decriminalize cannabis and another that would legalize it for adult use, according to the website Marijuana Moment.

It has been legal for in Canada for almost 2 years. Many of the legal stores can't afford to stay open as most people are still buying from their buddies because it's cheaper and better quality. Many people are growing their own too, so I'm not sure how these legal shops will be able to stay open. Why would anyone pay more for inferior quality and quantity?

IMO the rest of the world should just legalize it and stop busting people for something on par with alcohol. Up the quality and lower the price and many would buy at the legal shops.

I´m surprised to hear that. I thought legalization and the sale in legal stores would mean better quality, more variety of strains and that you get what you paid for, unlike street cannabis which could be laced or not up to par with legal shops as far as choice goes. Some of those legal stores are so sophisticated and offer a huge range of products and strains, and seem to sell great quality.

Why would people prefer street cannabis, other than the reason that it´s cheaper ?

I really thought those legal stores would be florishing these days, with Corona and people staying inside more often than they used to. lol

Not in Toronto. Most people have "a guy" they trust and it's much better quality and $30-$40 cheaper for the same quantity. Governments are greedy.

Bill to decriminalize marijuana at federal level up for House vote next month

The MORE Act would remove marijuana as a Schedule I substance.

A landmark bill that would decriminalize marijuana use at the federal level is up for vote soon.

The U.S. House of Representatives is set to vote on the legislation in September, according to an email sent out on Friday by Majority Whip James Clyburn. Politico first reported on the pending vote.

The "Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act of 2019" -- also called the MORE Act -- would officially remove cannabis from the list of federally controlled substances. It would also expunge federal marijuana convictions and arrests, and approve the allocation of resources for communities affected by the war on drugs, according to the bill's text.

"A floor vote on the bill would be the greatest federal cannabis reform accomplishment in over 80 years," the Global Alliance for Cannabis Commerce said in a statement Friday.

The House Judiciary Committee passed the bill, introduced by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., and co-sponsored by more than 50 lawmakers, by a vote of 24-10 in November.

"These steps are long overdue. For far too long, we have treated marijuana as a criminal justice problem instead of a matter of personal choice and public health," Nadler, the committee's chairman, said in a statement at the time. "Whatever one's views on the use of marijuana for recreational or medicinal purposes, arresting, prosecuting, and incarcerating users at the federal level is unwise and unjust."

Mystery surrounds fatal shooting of 7 people at Riverside County marijuana grow house

Taco Bell customer threatens staff, spews racial slurs over price of tacos...

Rochester police chief, deputies step down suddenly following protests

Mystery surrounds fatal shooting of 7 people at Riverside County marijuana grow house

Authorities investigating the shooting deaths of seven people at a marijuana growing facility in a remote corner of Riverside County said they think the crime might have been carried out by multiple assailants.


Few details are known about the mass killing, and detectives are still in the early stages of figuring out what happened.

"This is not going to be an easy investigation," Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco said Tuesday.

Here is what we know from Times reporting:

Where did the killings occur?

The dead were found on a property in Aguanga, a remote hamlet 100 miles east of Los Angeles.

When sheriff's deputies arrived Monday, it became clear the property was an "obvious large-scale illegal marijuana processing center," Bianco said. There were hundreds of plants, a makeshift greenhouse, a lab for using butane to extract valuable THC from pot plants and more than 1,000 pounds of processed marijuana with a street value in the millions, the sheriff said.

He said the sprawling operation had been overseen by sophisticated criminals.

"This was not that they just happened to be growing marijuana," he said. "This was a very large operation, a very organized-crime type of an operation."

What do we know about the victims?

Deputies, who were called to the house on reports of an assault shortly after midnight Monday, found six people dead from gunshots. A seventh victim — a woman — was still alive, but died shortly afterward at a hospital.

Authorities did not identify any of the victims Tuesday.

Mark Jones, 69, who lives nearby, told the Press-Enterprise that he heard "three separate volleys of gunshots."

Soon after, he said firetrucks and emergency vehicles arrived.

These 5 States Are Voting on Marijuana in November

Sean Williams 2 hrs ago

The Motley Fool logoThese 5 States Are Voting on Marijuana in November

This has been an unforgettably difficult year for many Americans. The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has cost lives, jobs, and completely upended our normal societal habits. But amid this chaos is the reality that, in just 51 days, Americans across the country will head to their local voting booth or mail in their ballots to decide who'll lead this country for the next four years.

These 5 States Are Voting on Marijuana in November© Provided by The Motley Fool These 5 States Are Voting on Marijuana in November

Keep in mind that it's not just the presidency or the make-up of Congress that'll be decided on November 3, 2020. Residents in six states will be heading to the polls to decide if marijuana will be legalized from an adult-use or medical standpoint.

We entered 2020 with two-thirds of all states ...edical pot, along with 11 states that have legalized the consumption and/or retail sale of recreational weed. By the time the November election is over, there could be as many as two new states to legalize medical marijuana and up to four new states that might wave the green flag on adult-use cannabis.

Here are the five states guaranteed to be voting on marijuana in November.

Joe Biden and Cannabis: Everything You Need to Know

Sean Williams 7 hrs ago

The Motley Fool logoJoe Biden and Cannabis: Everything You Need to Know

Just in case you needed the reminder, Election Day is now just 44 days away. Amid the chaos that's been the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, tens of millions of Americans around the country will soon head to their local voting booths or mail in their ballots to determine the path the U.S. will take going forward.


At stake this election are all 435 seats in the House of Representatives, a third of all Senate seats, and the big chair in the Oval Office.

Although anything could happen over the next 44 days, Democratic Party presidential nominee Joe Biden appears to have a firm lead in polling over incumbent Donald Trump for the presidency. There's little question that the president over the coming four years will have some serious challenges to tackle, including job growth, the coronavirus pandemic, and a struggling Social Security program.

But don't discount the role that marijuana could play in the upcoming election.

Marijuana legalization could be a budding issue in the 2020 election

As of today, marijuana is legalized in some medical....S. states, with 11 of these states also allowing for the consumption and/or retail sale of weed. Even with cannabis remaining wholly illegal at the federal level (i.e. Schedule I drug), the U.S. is the unquestioned worldwide leader in annual pot revenue.

Furthermore, it's an issue that the American public has increasingly gotten behind. Following a roughly 25-year period (1975-2000) where national support for legalization stood pat at approximately 25%, national pollster Gallup finds that, for two consecutive years, 66% of polled Americans favor the nationwide legalization of the drug.

Kelis is getting her own weed cooking show on Netflix

MusicNews

Cooking With Cannabis drops on 4/20

19March 2020TextSelim Bulut

Kelis is a big foodie. She knows how to make a good milkshake, obviously, but she's also written a cookbook, trained as a saucier at Le Cordon Bleu, opened a pop-up restaurant in London, and released an album simply titled Food.

Now, she's getting her own TV cookery show – with a twist.

Cooked with Cannabis is, as its name suggests, a weed cooking show. It's coming to Netflix on April 20, or 4/20 (when else was it going to be, really?). The series will run for six episodes and see professional chefs compete to win a $10,000 prize for their weed-infused food.

"Anyone that knows me knows how much I love my Netflix, so this is a dream come true," Kelis wrote on Instagram, showing off some Netflix-inspired nails. "Interestingly, this was one of those things that I didn't go looking for, it kind of came to me."

"As a chef, I was intrigued by the good and as an everyday person, I was interested in how powerful this topic is in today's society," she continues. "In this country, many things have been used systematically to oppress groups of people, but this is so culturally important for us to learn and grow together."

Check out her announcement post below.

Rwanda to grow medical cannabis, strictly for export
AFP 1 hr ago

Rwanda has approved the production of medical cannabis strictly for export, seeking to target fast-growing markets in the United States and European Union, even though its use remains illegal at home.

Guidelines for the production and export of medical cannabis were approved by the cabinet on Monday, and a government statement said Wednesday that it would not change strict local laws around marijuana consumption.

"Rwanda will begin to receive applications for licenses from interested investors for this high-value therapeutic crop. This investment framework does not affect the legal status of cannabis consumption in Rwanda, which remains prohibited," the statement said.

The Rwanda Development Board said several companies have tendered bids to begin mass production, as the tiny East African nation seeks a slice of the multi-billion-dollar medical cannabis market.

Not sure why they are doing this as the US have more weed than they know what to do with. Why would they want to import more? Seems completely unnecessary to me when they aren't utilizing the weed they already have and much of it is going up in smoke. shrug

Those guys used Prince´s Delirious in one of their movies (the one where they go to Amsterdam) and in a later version it was replaced by a very similar sounding song called Twisted.

My memories are......blurry. lol

All I know is that I have one of the two versions on VHS, and I am 100% sure that I saw both versions, the one with Delirious and the one with Twisted on VHS, not TV.

Seemed to me as if they got in trouble with Prince´s camp and then changed the song with a very simliar sounding song called Twisted.

LOL! weed

It was definitely on the VHS I had and just threw in my DVD, it's there, and the title of the chapter on the dvd is "Delirious". I wouldn't think they got in trouble with Prince. I think it's more likely that it was a royalty issue and they didn't want to pay for one version or another. Happens all the time where home video and/or broadcast versions change the song to a soundalike to avoid paying higher rates.

But it seems like, unless it's not on the Blu-ray, that isn't the case here.

Seemed to me as if they got in trouble with Prince´s camp and then changed the song with a very simliar sounding song called Twisted.


LOL! weed

It was definitely on the VHS I had and just threw in my DVD, it's there, and the title of the chapter on the dvd is "Delirious". I wouldn't think they got in trouble with Prince. I think it's more likely that it was a royalty issue and they didn't want to pay for one version or another. Happens all the time where home video and/or broadcast versions change the song to a soundalike to avoid paying higher rates.

But it seems like, unless it's not on the Blu-ray, that isn't the case here.


I left it playing and... I guess I forgot about the blackface in the Blind Melon Chittlin' scene.

That didn't age well. disbelief

I mean, Tommy Chong's not white, but, he's not black either.

Yes, many of those good ol´ 1980s movies had jokes in them that would not be ok today.

I just searched for some old threads where we both already talked about this years ago but I couldn´t find the one thread I created that was specifically about this very topic. But anyway....in those old threads I wrote that I own both VHS tapes, the one with Delirious and the one with the copycat song, and one person on a thread wrote that they had to change the song because they forgot to get the license for homevideo.

You´ve just inspired me to take a puff right now ....it´s 1.30 a.m and I´m playing a Batman videogame here. lol

That makes sense. Guess they cleared it up for future releases.

These 5 States Are Voting on Marijuana in November




Sean Williams 2 hrs ago













The Motley Fool logoThese 5 States Are Voting on Marijuana in November






This has been an unforgettably difficult year for many Americans. The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has cost lives, jobs, and completely upended our normal societal habits. But amid this chaos is the reality that, in just 51 days, Americans across the country will head to their local voting booth or mail in their ballots to decide who'll lead this country for the next four years.


These 5 States Are Voting on Marijuana in November© Provided by The Motley Fool These 5 States Are Voting on Marijuana in November

Keep in mind that it's not just the presidency or the make-up of Congress that'll be decided on November 3, 2020. Residents in six states will be heading to the polls to decide if marijuana will be legalized from an adult-use or medical standpoint.


We entered 2020 with two-thirds of all states ...edical pot, along with 11 states that have legalized the consumption and/or retail sale of recreational weed. By the time the November election is over, there could be as many as two new states to legalize medical marijuana and up to four new states that might wave the green flag on adult-use cannabis.


Here are the five states guaranteed to be voting on marijuana in November.






That'll make it, what, 16 states? A third of the way there.
Time keeps on slipping into the future...

I don’t want any smoke going in my lungs during these Covid times. I recently started doing edibles. They are the bomb! Way better than anything I have tried smoking in the past. Right now I’m just sticking with gummies and mints. Yes! They take me exactly where I want to be! stoned

I WISH I could enjoy edibles. I have some stomach enzyme issue that prevents me from enjoying the experience. I get NOTHING out of it. sad

See, those are the perks of legalization. You know exactly what you´re getting, in high quality, and probably for a reasonable price. Making edibles in places where weed is still illegal is often a gamble and you risk ruining or wasting your stash. wink

Personally, I´ve mostly had bad experiences with edibles because I either felt nothing at all or I got a bad triplike experience that just wouldn´t end. It´s difficult to control and it´s probably best if you don´t have to go to work the next morning.

One of my neighbors once consumed edibles and freaked out so badly that she started waking up all the neighbors in the building and started shouting at them and hitting them so they had to call the police. This is probably not the case if you get your stuff from a reliable dispensary that has good quality control.

I wouldn't know personally, since edibles don't effect me, but smoking and eating provide 2 totally different experiences.

“The real difference between edibles and smoking or vaping is that with edibles, a much larger fraction of Delta-9-THC makes it to the liver first. There it gets converted to 11-hydroxy-THC,” Jikomes says. “So in other words, if you smoke or vape, the ratio of 11-hydroxy-THC to Delta-9-THC is quite low, and if you take an edible it's much higher.”

https://www.vice.com/en/a...smoke-high

This is why many people report a very different psychoactive response from eating, some even "trip out" and hallucinate.

Here's something a lot of people don't know: If you ever get TOO high, and need to come down, ingest or smoke CBD that has no THC. As the balance of THC/CBD weighs heavier on the CBD side, the effects of THC are reduced or negated.

Everyone talks about thc and cbd but then I start reading about cbn.

CBN vs. CBD: what's the difference?
Judging by the acronyms alone, CBN and cannabidiol (CBD), two cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, seem pretty similar to each other. But these cannabis components are in fact two distinct cannabis compounds with completely different effects and origins. While both CBN and CBD share some similar medicinal properties, they vary significantly when it comes to how they're produced and how they interact with the body.
A 2011 study, published in the British Journal of Pharmacology, found that the combination of THC with CBN has demonstrated the ability to produce a more sedated, couch lock high in human subjects. Older cannabis products or those exposed to a lot of heat and sunlight, such as Moroccan hashish, are said to be better for relaxing than others because of their higher CBN content.

Who thought it would be so complicated?
