Obama Administration Lifts Restriction On Marijuana Research

Posted by Pharaoh Rameses El-Aton on June 23, 2015 at 17:47 0 Comments



In what marijuana reform advocates are hailing as a victory and large crack in the armor of government bureaucracy, the Obama administration announced this week that it will ease some restrictions on cannabis research by removing the additional review of the Public Health Service (PHS) for projects not funded by the federal government.

Since its 1999 inception, the PHS review process has imposed barriers to marijuana research — including requirements that plants come from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and that studies fit the criteria of what the federal government finds suitable. The implementation of this criterion arose out of a concern that guidelines around the study of marijuana, designated as a Schedule I drug, were too lax.

But support for the PHS review has waned in recent years — even among opponents of legalization — due in part to researchers’ frustration with a labyrinth of a regulatory system and growing knowledge about marijuana’s potential health benefits that has spurred calls for further analysis.

However, advocates say there’s work left to be done. Even with the Obama administration’s recent move, scientists studying marijuana still have to secure approval from NIDA, the Food and Drug Administration, and the Drug Enforcement Agency in order to obtain and transport large quantities of the plant from the government’s lone research depository in Mississippi — a rule that Dan Riffle of the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) hopes will experience a similar fate as the PHS review.

“The two biggest hurdles to marijuana research have been the PHS review and NIDA’s monopoly on the supply of marijuana available for research purposes,” Riffle, director of federal policies for MPP, told the International Business Times. “Now that one of those unnecessary barriers has been removed, we hope the second will undergo serious scrutiny. In fact, the Senate will be holding a hearing Wednesday regarding…

Snoop Dogg's Cannabis-Focused Venture Capital Fund Is Called Casa Verde Capital

Posted by THISIS420 NEWS on June 15, 2015 at 5:12 0 Comments

In February, TechCrunch reported that Calvin Broadus, aka Snoop Dogg, the famous rapper, was getting into the venture capital business, raising $25 million to launch a fund focused on investing in cannabis startups. Now, we know the fund’s name.

A filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Friday lists Snoop Dogg as the managing member of a Los Angeles-based VC fund called Casa Verde Capital, L.P. The filing defines Casa Verde Capital as a VC fund and discloses that it is looking to raise $25 million from outside investors, with no minimum investment. To date, however, Casa Verde hasn’t raised any money, the filing shows.

Casa Verde, when translated from Spanish to English, means ‘green house.’

Ted Chung and Even Eneman, two executives of talent agency Stampede Management, a partner to Snoop Dogg are also listed as managing members of Casa Verde Capital. An email left with Stampede’s general inbox wasn’t immediately returned.

As Snoop Dogg prepares to put money into cannabis startups and other new ventures, he’s already becoming an experienced investor.

In September, Snoop Dogg and Jared Leto invested in Robinhood, a free stock trading platform targeted at young investors. A month later, the duo invested in social media powerhouse Reddit.

Casa Verde Capital, however, doesn’t list Leto in its fund filing. The fund also lists Rick Shobin as a managing member.

Police RAID A California WEED STORE . . . And Eat Up All The EDIBLES . . While Taking INVENTORY!!

Posted by THISIS420 NEWS on June 12, 2015 at 11:00 0 Comments

During a police raid on an unpermitted pot shop in Santa Ana late last month, hidden cameras caught officers eating marijuana-laced “edibles,” playing darts and displaying other questionable behavior, according to an attorney who plans to sue the city in connection with the raid.

The incident occurred at Sky High Holistic, a medical marijuana dispensary operating without a business permit, officials with the Santa Ana Police Department confirmed. The raid, at 419 W. 17th St., was one of several such recent operations, police said.

Video of the raid was taken by the regular surveillance cameras the shop had in place, as well as a hidden one set up in anticipation of a police visit.

The footage shows at least eight officers busting into the dispensary, guns drawn, shouting “everybody on the ground” to customers and workers.

“I was about to kick her in her f—ing nub,” a female officer later says of a customer with an amputated leg in a wheelchair.

The officers proceed to remove surveillance cameras mounted on the ceiling, the video shows.

Then, they appear to be smelling the merchandise and discussing the flavor of the edibles, to laughter. Multiple officers appear to break off pieces of the food and consume them. Several other officers play darts.

The video was edited and released to news media by Long Beach-based attorney Matthew Pappas. He plans to file a lawsuit on behalf of Marla James, the patient with the amputated leg, alleging gross mistreatment by officers during the raid.

“I’d like to see the police officers disciplined for the behavior that goes on here. I’d like to see the city stop engaging in illegal conduct,” Pappas said.

The Police Department is conducting an internal investigation in response to the video, according to police Cmdr. Chris Revere.

“We’re obviously concerned about the conduct that we saw in the edited video,” Revere said. “We’re also concerned…
