25i-NBOMe/LSD Gets a Ride on the Mississippi!

STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) -- Jackson, Mississippi NBC Affiliate WLBT first introduced Denise Tate.  "He was manic and he was not the same person at all," said Tate.  She refers to her son Bailey Tate. Tate says her son smoked marijuana that contained 25i / NBOM3 – a Designer Drug - generally considered to be synthetic LSD.  This drug, engineered in a laboratory, is relatively new to north Mississippi according to the County Sheriff's investigator Brett Watson.  

"Anytime something is new, the effects of it in the long term and short term of it are just simply not known," said lt. Watson.

 25i can cause a person to hallucinate and dramatically change behavior to a state of euphoria.  A narcotics officers whose identify we conceal has a prediction.  "The dosage unit is so high that it could potentially kill them.  That's is a big problem for us and a big problem for anyone trying it."  MSU University spokesperson Sid Salter is quick to point out that there have been no incidents related to 25i reported on the MSU campus.  He goes on to say precautions are being taken to make sure students have all the information they need on this relatively new synthetic drug.  Reporters spoke to some MSU students at random and not one was aware of 25i, but they are now.

STS provides complete Supervisor and Employee Drug and Alcohol training which includes a chapter on Designer Drugs such as 25i.

Take Your Marijuana to the BANK

Take Your Marijuana to the Bank

A federal document shows 105 banks and credit unions are working with marijuana businesses in 23 states. Growers, store owners and processors say they are more vulnerable to thieves if they can't deposit their cash.

Inn February, the Feds assured banks and credit unions they would not be subject to money laundering charges if they worked with marijuana businesses, providing they met certain requirements. Still, the marijuana friendly institutions represent less than 1 percent of all banks and credit unions in the U.S

Washington State Sees Green

Washington state earned more than $1 million in taxes from the first month of legal sales, according to The Washington Times.

The state's liquor control board, which oversees the retail system, called it a healthy start given that only 18 of the 40 licensed stores were operational in July.

Costa Rica & Medical marijuana

A Costa Rican lawmaker wants to make his country the first in Central American to legalize medical marijuana.  They believe cannabis can help treat certain medical conditions like cancer and epilepsy. And add that taxing marijuana products at 7 percent could generate $20 million a year for the country's coffers.

Medical Marijuana Bill OTJ in NY

OTJ Medical Marijuana in NY

On July 5, 2014 New York became the 23rd state to approve the use of medical marijuana through the passage of AB 6357.  The bill could be viewed as a compromise between supporters and detractors of the medical marijuana movement as it limits the number of state-approved dispensaries to five and does not allow patients to actually smoke marijuana. Although the bill does not address workplace drug testing, it does contain interesting provisions concerning employer-employee relations.  The bill first protects registered patients from "arrest, prosecution, or penalty in any manner, or denied any right or privilege, including but not limited to civil penalty or disciplinary action by a business... solely for the certified medical use or manufacture of marijuana."  This does not necessarily rule out disciplinary action for working while impaired, but it would certainly require a business to be a bit more careful especially when conducting drug testing.  The bill adds a second line of protection to registered users in the workplace, including both employees and applicants.  It states that an employer may not refuse to employ an individual "or otherwise penalize a person for that person's status as a certified patient or designated caregiver unless failing to do so would put the... employer... in violation of federal law or cause it to lose a federal contract or funding."  This last part provides recourse for businesses that receive federal funding or contracts, but it is very clear that employers cannot otherwise refuse employment or penalize someone just for being a medical marijuana user.

The United States of Disrepair

WASHINGTON – As Congress considers legislation to avoid a shortfall of the Highway Trust Fund, Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx and 11 of his predecessors offered the following open letter to Congress.  Excerpts from the letter follow:

 This week, it appears that Congress will act to stave off the looming insolvency of the Highway Trust Fund. The bill, if passed, should extend surface transportation funding until next May.

We are hopeful that Congress appears willing to avert the immediate crisis.  But we want to be clear: This bill will not “fix” America’s transportation system. For that, we need a much larger and longer-term investment.  On this, all twelve of us agree. Suffice it to say, we’ve been around the block.  We probably helped pave it.

So it is with some knowledge and experience that we can write:  Never in our nation’s history has America’s transportation system been on a more unsustainable course.

Free Pot Fights Pot Shop Shut Down

San Jose Pot Shop Shut Down:  With the City of San Jose planning to implement new regulations that could shut down many of its dispensaries at the end of the week (July 2014), the fight over medical marijuana in the South Bay is intensifying.

Meantime, supporters began offering complimentary medical marijuana to bolster their campaign against the city. They set up a tent across from City Hall to symbolize an “Occupy”-type protest against San Jose's new regulations.

They point out they're not against regulations, only what they call the 'unreasonable' ones, but it is the free weed that is getting everyone's attention.

Dave Hodges, owner of the All American Cannabis Club, 1082 Stockton Ave., said his shop is closing its doors Friday because he can't meet San Jose's tighter new regulations by this week's deadline.

But Hodges and the Silicon Valley Cannabis Coalition are fighting back with a voter referendum to limit the city's power. The coalition set up stations in about a dozen locations citywide offering vouchers to registered San Jose voters for a free gram of pot and medical evaluations to become patients.

The coalition avoided accusations of drug dealing by making signing the referendum “optional,” meaning anyone with a medical marijuana card could get the voucher, even if they didn't sign the petition.

The Other Side:  Councilman and mayoral candidate Sam Liccardo wasn't impressed with Monday’s free pot tactics. "When you have to give away free drugs in order to get support for an idea, that says something about the quality of your ideas,” Liccardo said.  While he scoffed at the free pot vouchers, Liccardo acknowledged the city still isn't sure how to deal with specialized pot products. "It's one of the reasons why we shouldn't have cities regulating drugs,” he said. “We should have the FDA regulating drugs."

POT in DC Moving Forward

DC Marijuana Legalization Campaign to Submit 58,000 Signatures Monday

By Drug Policy AllianceJuly 5, 2014

D.C. Hoping to Follow Colorado and Washington, as Polls Show Over 60% Support for Legalization Among DC Residents

WASHINGTON, DC — The nation’s capital hopes to follow in the steps of Colorado and Washington by legalizing marijuana in November. Activists from the DC Cannabis Campaign plan to submit 58,000 signatures collected to place a measure to do so on the November ballot to the D.C. Board of Elections on Monday morning.

Initiative 71 allows adults over the age of 21 to possess up to two ounces of marijuana on their person at any time, and allows for the cultivation of up to six marijuana plants at home.

District law prevents the ballot initiative from addressing the sale of marijuana. However, the D.C. City Council is currently considering a bill which will tax and regulate marijuana within the District.

Polls show the issue is popular among District residents, with support above 60 percent.

This initiative builds on the work of the D.C. City Council, which decriminalized marijuana this past spring. However, as data from numerous jurisdictions around the country indicate, decriminalization alone is not enough to change police practices.  The District of Columbia currently has the highest per capita marijuana arrest rates in the U.S.

Collectors' Permission and Refusal to Test

§§ 40.73; 40.191; 40.193; 40.333; 40.355(i) 07/14 
When may a collector give an employee permission to leave a collection site? 
• A collector may give an employee permission to leave the collection site only after the testing 
process is complete. 
o For tests conducted under § 40.73, the testing process is complete when both the 
employee and the collector complete the chain of custody form in the order specified in 
§ 40.73(a)(1)-(6). At that time, the collector must advise the employee that he or she may 
leave the collection site. 
o For tests conducted under § 40.193, the testing process is complete only after the 
employee has provided a sufficient specimen and the steps in § 40.73(a)(1)-(6) are 
complete, or the employee has not provided a sufficient specimen within three hours of 
the first unsuccessful attempt to provide a specimen. 
• There is no requirement for a collector to inform an employee that the failure to remain at the 
collection site is a refusal. Therefore, if the collector does not inform an employee that failure to 
remain at the collection site is a refusal, it does not mean that the collector has given the 
employee permission to leave the collection site. If an employee leaves prior to the completion of 
the testing process, the employer must decide whether the employee’s actions constitute a refusal.

Heroin Up, Coke Down - UN Report

Deadly opioid surrogates, shrinking global cocaine supply and mixed picture of cannabis use

The surge in opium production in Afghanistan represented a setback, said Mr. Fedotov, since the world's largest opium-poppy grower had increased its area under cultivation by 36 per cent from 154,000 hectares in 2012 to 209,000 hectares in 2013. With a crop yield of some 5,500 tons, Afghanistan accounted for up to 80 per cent of global opium production. In Myanmar, the area under opium poppy cultivation covered 57, 800 hectares, continuing the increase in cultivation begun after 2006. In 2013, the global production of heroin also rebounded to the high levels witnessed in 2008 and 2011.

The US, Oceania and some European and Asian countries have seen users switching between heroin and pharmaceutical opioids, a trend largely dictated by low prices and accessibility; but whereas dependent opioid users in the US are switching from pharmaceutical opioids to heroin, users in some European countries are replacing heroin with synthetic opioids.

The global availability of cocaine fell as production declined from 2007 to 2012. Cocaine use remained high in North America, though decreasing since 2006. Whereas cocaine consumption and trafficking appear to be increasing in South America, Africa has already witnessed emerging cocaine use due to the rise in trafficking through that continent, while greater spending power has made some Asian countries vulnerable to cocaine use.

Globally, cannabis use seems to be down but a perception of lower health risks has led to more consumption in North America. Although it is too early to understand the effects of new regulatory frameworks making the recreational use of cannabis legal in some states of the US and Uruguay under certain conditions, more people are seeking treatment for cannabis-related disorders in most regions in the world, including North America.

Seizures of methamphetamine more than doubled globally between 2010 and 2012. Methamphetamine manufacture expanded once again in North America, with a large increase in the number of meth laboratories dismantled in the US and Mexico. Of the 144 tons of amphetamine-type stimulants (ATS) seized globally, half were intercepted in North America and a quarter in East and South-East Asia. The number of unregulated new psychoactive substances on the global market more than doubled to 348 from 2009 to 2013.

Charlotte's Web Pot Now Legal

June 16, 2014 | WMFE, Orlando -- A kind of medical marijuana known as Charlotte's Web now is legal in Florida. Gov. Rick Scott signed the bill into law Monday.

Charlotte's Web is used to treat illnesses like epilepsy in children.

It’s a strain of marijuana that has low THC content, the chemical that causes a high, but is high in CBD, a non-euphoric compound linked with medical applications.

The governor also signed another bill into law banning six new synthetic drugs.

It's a third-degree felony under the law to possess or sell the drugs.

Three synthetic compounds also are banned.

Attorney General Pam Bondi says Florida medical examiners now are tracking deaths related to synthetic drugs to help improve law enforcement.
