Federal Marijuana Crackdown Coming?

Is a federal crackdown on marijuana coming in 2017? After all, the Feds locked up over 3,500 people for marijuana related drug offenses, in 2016 alone. No one knows for sure what the new administration will do.

Should you be worried that your marijuana buying history could end up in the wrong hands?

Just think about all of the potential conflicts:

– You could be denied purchase of a firearm!
– It could jeopardize your health insurance coverage?!
– You could be denied employment!
– You might even be denied citizenship!
– Involved in a child custody proceeding?

Well Oregon legislators aren’t waiting around to find out. Oregon legalized recreational cannabis in July of 2015, and a new Oregon Bill that just passed the legislature (53-5) will prohibit marijuana retailers from keeping information collected from their customers for more than 48 hours.

Perhaps it’s time to start asking some questions.

Wisconsin Legislature Unanimously approves Marijuana CBD Oil

Updated March 28th, 2017

Wisconsin State Capitol
Wisconsin State Capitol

Madison, WI – The Wisconsin state Assembly voted 98-0 last week, to legalize possession of CBD oil! CBD oil is a marijuana extract and is used to treat seizures, reduce pain and inflammation and may even be effective as a neuro-protectant. It won’t get you high, but many people swear by its benefits.

With the state Senate having overwhelmingly approved the bill, it now moves on to the governor’s desk for his signature. Gov. Scott Walker is expected to sign the legislation into law.

Unfortunately (for many), the Wisconsin bill does not go far enough. For one thing, the legislation does not allow for the production or sale of CBD oil in Wisconsin. Parents are expected to obtain CBD oil from outside the state. Then bring it back into Wisconsin, in violation of federal law. Seems a little short-sighted, doesn’t it?


Updated March 28th, 2017 

NORML-Madison-WisconsinNORML – Madison reports that Wisconsin City has removed fines for marijuana possession and consumption. 

Under a new ordinance passed this week in March, adults 21+ will no longer be subject to fine for possessing marijuana (public or private).  Using marijuana in private is also exempt from any fines. However, public use is still prohibited and subject to a $200 fine.

Breaking News: Multiple Marijuana Legislative Bills could Signal Shift IN GOP

At least two bills have been introduced by Republican lawmakers in the past 6 weeks, that would end federal marijuana prohibition.

I’m Just a Bill – H.R. 715

On January 27th, 2017 – House Republican Rep. Griffith Morgan from Virginia introduced H.R. 715 to the 115th Congress. Legislation that would reschedule marijuana from a Schedule 1 Controlled Substance, AND exclude cannabidiol (CBD) from the definition of marijuana

HR715 De-schedules CBD

 

I’m Just a Second Marijuana Bill!

On February 27th, 2017 – House Republican Rep. Thomas Garrett of Virginia introduced legislation entitled, Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2017.

Rep. Garrett’s legislation, if it becomes law, would end federal prohibition by removing marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act. This would in effect, leave marijuana legality/policy up to the states.

Rep. Garrett has been a vocal Trump Supporter and the timing of his bill is worth noting. AG Sessions himself suggested during his confirmation hearings – that if congress didn’t like his approach to marijuana law enforcement, they should change the laws accordingly.

Perhaps the Republicans are attempting to do just that?! First with a stick, then with a carrot?

Garrett’s office released a press release to coincide with the legislation’s introduction:

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today 5th District Congressman Tom Garrett introduced legislation aimed at federally decriminalizing marijuana.

The short title for this legislation is cited as the “Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2017.” If passed, this bill would take marijuana off the federal controlled substances list – joining other industries such as alcohol and tobacco.

Garrett went on to say,

“this step allows states to determine appropriate medicinal use and allows for industrial hemp growth, something that will provide a major economic boost to agricultural development in Southside Virginia. In the coming weeks, I anticipate introducing legislation aimed at growing the hemp industry in Virginia, something that is long overdue.”

Senators on Marijuana in 2017

Take a listen to Senator Schatz as he blasts AG Sessions on the Senate floor, February 8th, 2017 – over his comments disparaging marijuana.

According to the Associated Press (article), Senators from eight states with legal recreational marijuana (Washington, Colorado, Nevada, California, Oregon, Massachusetts, Maine, Alaska), sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions on March 2nd, 2017 – asking him to uphold the Department of Justice’s existing enforcement policy toward marijuana.

Among those who signed this letter where Senators Elizabeth Warren and Edward Markey.

Election 2016: Marijuana Legalization Spreads Across the U.S.

2016 Election – A Game-Changer for marijuana

Voters across 5 states considered ballot measures legalizing the recreational use of marijuana for adults. Prior to Nov. 8th, just four states in the U.S. had decriminalized marijuana and setup a regulatory system for its legal production and sale – Alaska, Colorado, Oregon and Washington.

Cannabis measures rocked the vote in 2016!

Four states passed measures legalizing recreational marijuana for adults over 21 – California, Nevada, Massachusetts and Maine, bringing the total in the U.S. to eight states!

Arizona defeated Proposition 205, which would have legalized recreational marijuana. Better luck next time!

California

California, the sixth largest economy in the world (larger than France or India) just legalized recreational marijuana! Prop 64 passed by 56% of the vote.

What does this mean to California residents?

CA Prop 64 establishes a legal limit of one ounce of marijuana for adults over the age of 21. It also allows residents to grow as many as 6 marijuana plants at home (indoors). Rules regarding outdoor cultivation will be up to local governments.

No public consumption of marijuana will be allowed. However, consumption will be allowed in private clubs and at private events, given the event is permitted and licensed properly.

Learn more about California’s new law by checking out this article in The Sacramento Bee.

Nevada

With the passage of Question #2, Nevada also legalized the adult recreational use of marijuana. Beginning Jan. 1, 2017, residents can posses up to an ounce of marijuana. Sales at recreational dispensaries are expected to begin operations before Jan. 2018.

Learn more by reading the Las Vegas Review Journal.

Maine

The referendum to legalize recreational marijuana in Maine passed – but just barely. And its future is not at all certain. It took 2 days to count all of the ballots, with the measure ultimately passing by less than one percentage point.

According to the Portland Press Herald, opponents of legalization are moving ahead with a request for a recount. The “No on 1” campaign has until next Wednesday to collect the signatures needed in order to formally request the Secretary of State’s office to undergo an official recount and tally of the votes – something that would likely take weeks.

Read more about Maine’s new law and the politics surrounding the recount at The Washington Times.

Massachusetts

Voters in Massachusetts broke new ground last week by becoming the first New England state to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. Maine’s delayed tally and potential recount place it as the second New England state to legalize recreational marijuana.

Massachusetts has an opportunity to become a bellwether for Marijuana decriminalization and commercialization on the east coast. Residents of Massachusetts have the winds at their back and all of the east coast is watching to see how this new industry unfolds – in a state not unlike their own.

The new Massachusetts law allows adult residents to possess up to an ounce of marijuana AND keep up to 10 ounces of marijuana at home and grow up to six plants!

In short, the law proposes that Massachusetts legalize and regulate marijuana similar to alcoholic beverages.


What about D.C.?

The residents of the District of Columbia (D.C.) also decriminalized marijuana back in 2014 – take a look at the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department’s Facts on DC Marijuana Laws.

dcmj_legalization_ends_discriminationHowever, Congress has (each year) re-introduced a provision to the Omnibus Spending Bill – that effectively blocks the District of Columbia from taxing or regulating its marijuana sales. The Omnibus spending bills of 2014, 2015 and 2016 all maintained this provision and the trend is unlikely to improve with our next session of Congress.

UK Gov Concedes CBD (cannabidiol) from Cannabis is Medicine

CBD News Pick – Independent.co.uk

Exclusive: The MHRA’s assessment could ‘provide ground-breaking results’ in leading to reform over cannabis’ medicinal use in the UK

The government’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has found that Cannabidiol (CBD) has a “restoring, correcting or modifying” effect on “physiological functions” when administered to humans, in a potential milestone in the campaign to legalise cannabis and bring about evidence-based laws regarding drugs.

The review of CBD, a cannabinoid accounting for up to 40% of the marijuana plant’s extract that doesn’t contain its psychoactive THC but is purported to retain the health benefits, came about following discussions with CBD vaporiser company MediPen.

uk-gov-admits-cbd-a-medicine

The MHRA’s findings are not directly applicable to the government’s response to last year’s petition to legalise cannabis, but stand in stark contrast, with the petition having been batted away by the Home Office with the assessment that cannabis “can unquestionably cause harm to individuals and society”.

GW Pharmaceuticals has also just concluded a positive phase 3 clinical trial demonstrating the safety and efficacy of CBD.

“Since our inception we’ve worked hard to obtain our goal of breaking down the negative connotations surrounding Cannabis to lead to a reform in the law for medicinal use,” Jordan Owen, Managing Director of MediPen, told The Independent, “now this is finally becoming a reality, which will provide ground-breaking results,”

CDC: Marijuana use by Seniors Up 455%

CBD News Pick – LA Weekly

Worried your teen kids are smoking pot? Don’t. New research by the Center for Disease Control suggests the 55 and older crowd is much more likely to hit that vape or chow down on an edible after dinner. Or maybe before dinner, or frankly even during dinner.

Regular weed use among people between the ages of 55 and 64 is up 455 percent since 2002. Yes, 455 percent. Among seniors 65 years and older, cannabis use is up 333 percent. Now compare that to only 7.4 percent of Americans between the ages of 12 and 17 years old who admitted to smoking pot recently. Suddenly, teenagers seem like puritans compared to their parents and grandparents.

If current trends continue, seniors could overtake younger Americans as the largest weed generation. That isn’t entirely surprising given how many baby boomers experimented with drugs in their younger days, but many of them quit partying after having children or settling into more professional lives.

The resurgence of marijuana use among the generation responsible for those infamous D.A.R.E. campaigns of the 1980s and 1990s illustrates how much social perceptions have shifted in regards to cannabis. Today’s rhetoric is less about weed being a dangerous gateway drug and more about the promising properties of medicinal marijuana. Even California Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher publicly talked about using mmj to deal with arthritis pain.

And that’s where Green Soldiers Healers Collective comes into play. The small, Los Angeles-area group serves patients between the ages of 6 months and 99 years old with just about every kind of ailment you can imagine. Many of their patients are first-time users filled with concern or trepidation over this new form of alternative medicine.

“What happens with a lot of our older patients is that they’re doing these opiate treatments – whether it be oxycontin or valium or even morphine – and a lot of times there are a lot of side effects those patients go through,” says Lucas, co-founder of Green Soldiers Healers.

Cannabis Chocolatier Readying for California Legalization Boom

CBD News Pick – Los Angeles Times

The smell inside the production rooms of Kiva Confections, one of California’s premier  manufacturers of edible cannabis, is, in a word, intoxicating

You won’t just catch whiffs of the powdery hash that goes into Kiva’s high-quality chocolate bars. You’ll also inhale the scent of dried blueberries and the heavenly aroma of espresso beans, which are slowly being covered with cannabis-infused chocolate as they tumble in big metal machines that look like open cement mixers.

Right now, co-owners Kristi Knoblich and Scott Palmer, who founded the company six years ago when they were 24 years old, are making medicine for patients whose conditions are improved by cannabis — people with cancer pain or nausea from chemotherapy, people with neuropathy or anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder.

But if California voters approve Proposition 64, the Adult Use of Marijuana Act, next month, Kiva products will be available to anyone 21 and older. Based on what happened in Colorado after voters in that state approved recreational marijuana in 2012, Knoblich said, the couple anticipates a big — possibly huge — growth in sales.

This worries Proposition 64 opponents, who fear that potent edibles, readily available, could fall into the hands of children. They hope that raising these kinds of fears will nudge voters to reject the measure. Given the polling, I think that is going to be an uphill battle.

Proposition 64 includes safeguards aimed at keeping kids safe: Marijuana products and labels cannot be designed to appeal to children, nor be “easily confused” with commercially sold candy. They must be in childproof packages. Items must be scored into standardized serving sizes, and each serving can contain no more than 10 mgs of THC, the primary active ingredient in marijuana. Products must also carry serious warnings urging caution.

Will this be enough to prevent accidental intoxication by children?

“There have been maybe a couple of hundred cases in Colorado, called into the Denver Poison Control Center,” said Larry Bedard, a retired Marin County emergency room doctor, former president of the American College of Emergency Physicians and strong advocate of legalization.

“At the same time, there’s like 2,500 calls for kids getting into detergent under the kitchen sink,” he said. “I have seen kids in the ICU from aspirin overdoses. I have seen someone die of Tylenol overdose…. If you are a responsible parent, you don’t have Tylenol or aspirin sitting at the bedside. Same thing with edibles. Like other toxic drugs, they need to be kept under lock and key.”

So yes, accidents will happen if Proposition 64 passes, just as they do now.

2,500 year old Cannabis found in NW China Burial

CBD News Pick 1 of 2 – National Geographic

For the first time, archaeologists have unearthed well-preserved cannabis plants, which were placed on a corpse some 2,500 years ago.

Archaeologists are hailing the discovery of an “extraordinary cache” of cannabis found in an ancient burial in northwest China, saying that the unique find adds considerably to our understanding of how ancient Eurasian cultures used the plant for ritual and medicinal purposes.

In a report in the journal Economic Botany, archaeologist Hongen Jiang and his colleagues describe the burial of an approximately 35-year-old adult man with Caucasian features in China’s Turpan Basin. The man had been laid out on a wooden bed with a reed pillow beneath his head.

Thirteen cannabis plants, each up to almost three feet long, were placed diagonally across the man’s chest, with the roots oriented beneath his pelvis and the tops of the plants extending from just under his chin, up and alongside the left side of his face. (Read how Eurasian gold artifacts tell the tale of drug-fueled rituals.)

Radiocarbon dating of the tomb’s contents indicates that the burial occurred approximately 2,400 to 2,800 years ago.

This discovery adds to a growing collection of archaeological evidence showing that cannabis consumption was “very popular” across the Eurasian steppe thousands of years ago, says Jiang.

A Truly Unique Burial

The burial is one of 240 graves excavated at the Jiayi cemetery in Turpan, and is associated with the Subeixi culture (also known as the Gushi Kingdom) that occupied the area between roughly 3,000 to 2,000 years ago. At the time, Turpan’s desert oasis was an important stop on the Silk Road.

Cannabis plant parts have been found in a few other Turpan burials, most notably in a contemporaneous burial in nearby Yanghai cemetery discovered nearly a decade ago, which contained close to two pounds of cannabis seeds and powdered leaves.

This is the first time archaeologists have recovered complete cannabis plants, as well as the first incidence of their use as a “shroud” in a human burial.

West of Turpan, cannabis seeds have also been found in first millennium B.C. Scythian burials in southern Siberia, including one of a woman who possibly died of breast cancer. Archaeologists suspect she may have been using cannabis in part to ease her symptoms. (Read “Will Marijuana for Sick Kids Get Government to Rethink Weed?“)

However, this is the first time ever that archaeologists have recovered complete cannabis plants, as well as the first incidence of their use as a “shroud” or covering in a human burial, says Jiang.

Locally Grown

Since previous cannabis finds in Turpan burials consisted only of plant parts, it has been difficult for researchers to determine whether the plant was grown locally or obtained through trade with neighboring regions.

The plants in the Jiayi burial, however, were found lying flat on the man’s body, leading archaeologists to conclude that the cannabis had been fresh—and therefore local—when it was harvested for the burial.

CBD News Pick 2 of 2 – NPR

Researchers have unearthed 13 cannabis plants in an ancient tomb in northern China, suggesting that prehistoric central Eurasians had ritualistic or medicinal uses for the mind-altering plant.

In a recent paper published in Economic Botany, the scientists say that the “extraordinary cache” of 13 “nearly whole” female cannabis plants were arranged diagonally like a shroud over the body of a dead man. The man was about 35 years old, appeared to be Caucasian and might have been a shaman, they say.

In the tomb, the body was placed on a wooden bed with a “pillow made of common reeds,” surrounded by earthenware pots. The plants measured between 19 and 35 inches, and carbon dating indicated that the cemetery is 2,800 to 2,400 years old.

“This is the first time ever that archaeologists have recovered complete cannabis plants, as well as the first incidence of their use as a ‘shroud’ or covering in a human burial,” National Geographic quotes the study’s lead author, Hongen Jiang, as saying.

This isn’t the first time cannabis has been found at sites in Siberia and northwestern China, according to the researchers. The origins of those previous plants were not clear — they might have been transported from other areas. However, the researchers say that the way the plants were placed on this corpse means they were fresh at the time — suggesting that the marijuana was likely locally grown.

The tomb lies in northwest China’s Turpan Basin, which was “an important stop on the Silk Road,” according to the magazine.

It was found among 240 other tombs in the cemetery believed to belong to the Subeixi culture. As the study describes, the Subeixi people “led a pastoral life with only a small amount of cereal cultivation, but eventually developed a more balanced semi-pastoral and semi-agricultural society.”

And the researchers say there’s growing evidence that the Subeixi, along with other groups living in the area, used cannabis for ritualistic or medicinal purposes. Ten years ago, for example, scientists discovered “a large supply of processed female Cannabis flowers” in a nearby Yanghai cemetery. The plants were likely selected because of their “psychoactivity, possibly to facilitate communication between the human and spirit worlds and/or for its medicinal value.” They say it could have also been placed “as an appetite stimulant.”

Oregon Farms and Growing Regions to Define Industry?

CBD News Pick – The Potlander

There’s reason to suspect the next step for Oregon cannabis is to highlight the farms, as we’ve seen with cheese, wine, hops and berries.

It’s been a bumper-crop year for Oregon cannabis entrepreneurs. Since recreational sales started last October, dispensary shelves have filled with well-marketed innovations—everything from vapes made for women to pre-rolls that can pass for cigarettes to CBD dog treats.

Agriculture is the foundation of this new industry, but it hasn’t been highlighted in marketing, partly because many cannabis growers are still secretive about their operations. But there’s reason to suspect the next step for Oregon cannabis is to highlight the farms, as we’ve seen with cheese, wine, hops and berries.

To do that, Oregon growers will have to start talking about terroir. Just like wine, outdoor-growing areas for cannabis can be defined by geographic features like soil and weather during the growing season. Just as wine is classified into American Viticultural Areas, or AVAs, the future of cannabis might be ACAs: American Cannabis Areas.

Imagine walking into a dispensary and seeing your Sour Diesel labeled “Applegate Valley” or “Yamhill-Carlton.”

It might take a while to designate regions that small, but this is already something the Oregon Cannabis Business Council says it’s working on.

“There would probably end up being at least a dozen, if not more, appellations in the state,” says Donald Morse, director of the OCBC. “It could become our most valuable cash crop.”

Right now, Oregon cannabis growers are generally split into three main regions: Willamette Valley, Eastern Oregon and Southern Oregon. Each region has a distinct climate, growing season and certain strains that flourish there, according to Norris Monson, an outdoor-grow expert and CEO of Rolling Joint Ventures, an Oregon consulting firm.

“Cannabis has a natural range that’s similar to tomatoes,” Monson says. “It likes warm and dry. Psychoactive strains traditionally originate from either high mountainous regions like Afghanistan or Pakistan for indica, or from tropical equatorial regions like Jamaica or Vietnam for sativa.”

Just as certain varieties of grapes are native to certain environments—think how pinot noir thrives in the cool, moist Willamette Valley—certain strains of cannabis do well in certain areas. Weather is a challenge for Oregon outdoor growers, especially in the northern part of the state.

When it comes to matching strains to climate, Eastern Oregon is the most like Pakistan, where indica comes from. Once you get east of the Cascades, it’s drier, colder and there’s less “insect pressure,” as Monson puts it. Indicas thrive there because they are more resilient to low temperatures, and the first frost decides when growers harvest.

In the Willamette Valley, early rains and heavy night dews make the climate the closest this state gets to Jamaica—though it’s still pretty far from it. Sativas have the best chance there, so long as they mature early, before the rainy season starts. “Some growers in the valley use leaf blowers to dry dew from plants and to expedite drying,” Monson says.
