Man leaves 2 pounds of weed in Uber…tries to retrieve it from the cops.

A Pennsylvania man who was clearly trying to spread joy to the world during the holiday season discovered that securing the bag was not as easy as it looks. After he tried to retrieve two pounds of marijuana he allegedly left in an Uber, he found himself in handcuffs.

WXPI reports that the driver of a ride-share vehicle in North Huntingdon, Pa., said he received an email from Uber on Dec. 29 stating that his passenger, Malik Mollett, had left a package in the back seat. The email also contained a number where Mollett could be reached to return his belongings. So on Jan. 2, the driver called and alerted the police that he had found a bag containing a large amount of weed, causing the police to ..

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Wait. I think there might be a mistake in this story. The driver found pounds of reefer and waited four days to alert the authorities? That can’t be right. What would an Uber driver do with, let’s say, 13 pounds of weed over the New Year’s holiday? I bet his Toyota Camry smelled suspiciously like reggae music, Little Debbies and giggling.

Anyway, KDKA confirms that the driver called 911 four days after smokingdiscovering the vacuum-sealed ganja. Mollett had allegedly been trying to contact the driver, even texting a picture of the bag to verify that he was the owner.

After the driver told the cops about the misplaced pot package on Jan. 2, the police then contacted Mollett, posing as Uber. The undercover happiness haters agreed to meet the backseat bobo bungler at an Irwin, Pa., McDonald’s on Jan. 9, almost two weeks after Mollett originally fumbled the bag of fun.

Mollett met with an undercover cop who returned the ganja, and he even asked the cops how much they smoked, WLS-TV reports. The officers assured Mollett that they hadn’t consumed any of the weed, which should have been a signal for Mollett to get the hell out of there. Even if they weren’t partakers of pot, any normal human being would have kept a portion as a signal from the Most High (Snoop Dogg) and at least given it out as Kwanzaa gifts.

But Mollett stayed and was immediately apprehended by Pennsylvania State Troopers. He was charged with possession of a controlled substance and criminal use of a communication facility. Authorities set his bail at $150,000 even though they declined to charge him with first-degree stupidity. The police say the weed had a street value of thousands of dollars because it was “very high-grade” marijuana.

I wonder how they know?

Mollett has not indicated how he will plead, but perhaps he was one of the three wise men who couldn’t find any myrrh or frankincense. Do you know how hard it is to find reasonably priced frankincense during the holidays? And don’t even mention myrrh. I don’t know what myrrh is, but I bet it’s easier to get a pound of weed than it is to get myrrh because the myrrh section of Target is always empty around Christmas.

It is also possible that this was all part of a plan to give back to his community. Dec. 29 is the fourth day of Kwanzaa, whose principle is cooperative economics.

First mascara enriched with CANNABIS oil is set to hit the UK this month – after becoming a runaway hit in the US where fans claim it even makes their lashes GROW

 

Daily Mail

 

Cult US beauty brand Milk Makeup will launch in the UK with a mascara featuring CBD oil – the first of its kind. 

The beauty brand which originates in New York is known for its innovative make up trends and was created by British former beauty and fashion editor Zanna Roberts Rassi.

The mascara, which is priced at £20.50, uses CBD oil in replace of beeswax, making the mascara vegan friendly and  the hemp-derived cannabis oil is said to enrich lashes and make them grow thicker.  

The brand, which launches in the UK on Cult Beauty on January 28th, also revealed that the CBD oil gives the mascara a ‘creamy texture’ which helps when applying it and removing it. 

Fans on Amazon have said how much they love the Kush High Volume mascara, revealing it has given them ‘full and long’ lashes and how they’re now ‘hooked for life’.

 

Cult US beauty brand Milk will launch in the UK with a mascara featuring CBD oil - the first of its kind

 

The brand will launch in the UK on Cult Beauty on January 28th, while some fans will also get a chance to buy the make up first.

Milk Makeup will be available for fans at a pop up shop in London’s Covent Garden on January 26th and 27th.

The mascara, which is priced at £20.50, uses CBD oil in replace of beeswax, making the mascara vegan friendly and the hemp-derived cannabis oil is said to make lashes thicker

 

But fans abroad have already gone crazy for the mascara on Amazon. One said: ‘My hairdresser always has the prettiest eyelashes, she got me hooked on this. I was skeptical because I have short lashes, this mascara works!’ 

They went on to say: ‘It extends the length of lashes and does not clump up. I forgot to wash it off one night before going to bed, was surprised to wake with it not all over my pillow and undereyes. Now I am absolutely hooked on it.’

 

While another said: ‘Love this mascara! I got a sample from Sephora and was in love with how full and long my lashes look. I’ve tried dozens of mascaras and this is by far my favorite.’

And another admitted, although she bought it for her daughter, she’s now hooked: ‘I ordered one for her and one for myself. I’m hooked for life and she loved it as well. I highly recommend this product!’

On the website Milk makeup admit that: ‘Kush Mascara is the vegan way to get major volume and healthier-looking lashes in one hit.’ 

 

How does CBD Oil thicken up hair and lashes? 

 

The oil hydrates lashes, making them have more volume
Is rich in fatty acids omega 3 and omega 6 and contains high doses of calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium and vitamin E – which are great for skin and scalp health
It also contains good levels of essential fatty acids – linoleic and gamma linoleic acid (GLA) – which promote the maintenance of normal hair growth  

 

And its not just the mascara which is vegan, the entire brand is, using ingredients that are paraben-free and cruelty free. 

Other products from its range include its watermelon brightening serum and its Flex concealer, which is also getting rave reviews online.

The Milk Makeup pop up shop in London’s Covent Garden will have exclusive products only available to the shoppers on the two days and they’ll also be an exclusive Milk Makeup goody bag for the first 100 in the queue.

Shipping containers to…cannabis grow pods

‘Some assembly required’: Cannabis grow pods turn into new business opportunity for Winnipeg company

Pods made from renovated shipping containers being sold to producers around the country as turnkey solution

About six months ago, Delta 9 Cannabis CEO John Arbuthnot was busy getting ready for the looming legalization of cannabis.

There was the behind-the-scenes planning for his company’s first retail pot store, the creation of supply agreements with other cannabis sellers, and then the expansion of Delta 9’s secure growing facility in east Winnipeg.

Then Arbuthnot got a call about another business opportunity. A cannabis producer had seen a news story about Delta 9, and wanted to know if the Winnipeg company would sell its grow pods to help build out the first phase of the producer’s facility.

“Really? You know, a little bit disbelief,” Arbuthnot remembers thinking.

The pods are essentially renovated shipping containers that are turned into highly controlled cannabis growing spaces. Each pod can produce roughly 32.5 kilograms of cannabis per year — valued at somewhere between $300,000 and $400,000 at current retail prices.

Delta 9 uses them to grow all of its product, and now sells the pods as a turnkey solution for producers who want an efficient way to grow, while reducing the risk of crop failure.

Pot pods a smarter way to grow: Delta 9

 WATCH

 

00:00 02:23

 

A Winnipeg cannabis company is making pot grow pods out of shipping containers and has started selling the pods to other producers. 2:23

“We’ve already heard horror stories from the rest of the industry on some major crop losses at big open greenhouse facilities,” Arbuthnot said.

“With the pod system, all of that risk is compartmentalized. If there is a risk of contamination, it’s contained within one area and that risk is mitigated.”

The pods are all about quality control, he says. They prevent air flow from one room to another and Delta 9 says if there is a problem with a crop — like plant disease, pests or fungus — because it’s contained, they can destroy it, sterilize the pod and only lose about $10,000 in product.

That’s significantly less than the millions in losses a crop problem could cost a producer who grows in a large open room.

“From a risk mitigation standpoint it’s a very attractive production model,” Arbuthnot said noting his company has patents pending for the grow pods in both the U.S. and Canada.

Sign of growth, says cannabis council

The stackable pods have turned into a major source of revenue for Delta 9. The company has sold them to producers in Brantford, Ont., and out west in Victoria.

Once they’re built by the 35 different tradespeople at Delta 9’s construction facility, they are delivered by truck almost ready to use.

“There is some assembly required. It’s not quite as bad as Ikea,” Arbuthnot laughed.

Delta 9’s grow pods are just one example of how cannabis companies are using innovation to get product to market, said Allan Rewak, executive director of the Cannabis Council of Canada, the national organization for Canada’s licensed producers.

“It really showcases, I think, the incredible excitement, creativity and growth we’re seeing in Canada’s cannabis economy.”

He said the pods give budding new producers the chance to learn from, and build on, the experience of established growers.

There are other turnkey solutions being used across the country, he said, including smaller options for micro cultivation and larger ones for full-scale production.

He points to producer Green Relief, which has a facility near Hamilton that’s using fish to help grow cannabis through aquaponics, as an example of growing creativity in the industry.

“There is so much diversity in terms of production and so much variability, it’s hard to point to one specific example,” Rewak said.

“Instead, I would point to the entirety of the industry and see what we’re doing.”

‘The globe has eyes on us’

Canopy Growth, which has cannabis production sites in seven provinces across Canada, is using large greenhouse facilities for mass production.

The company said its innovation comes in the design of the room, and it has learned a lot since it started growing in 2014.

“You can get the cost per gram lower in a greenhouse and there’s less environmental impact to using the power of the sun with supplemental lighting,” said Jordan Sinclair, Canopy’s vice-president of communications.

“And our greenhouses have rain recapture, so it’s a bit of a more economically attractive model but it’s also a much more sustainable model.”

Delta plans to have 600 of its pods stacked inside its own facility by the end of 2019, bringing its production of cannabis to about 17,500 kilograms — roughly $175 million worth at current retail prices.

And Arbuthnot isn’t stopping there — he has his eyes on potential international sales as markets open up for cannabis cultivation globally

“We’re fortunate here in Canada that a lot of the rest of the globe has eyes on us to see just what we’re doing that’s that’s working in the cannabis space. I think it’s an incredible opportunity.”

Police unearth almost 50 cannabis plants at home in Malmains Road, Dover

Police unearth almost 50 cannabis plants at home in Malmains Road, Dover

 

Officers who executed a warrant at a house earlier today unearthed almost 50 cannabis plants.

The plants were discovered in a house in Dover at about 7.45am this morning.

The warrant was executed at a mid-terraced house in Malmains Road and inside police found two large grow tents filled with plants.

 

Almost 50 plants were found Malmains Road, Dover

One tent was found upstairs and one one downstairs and officers also found extensive hydroponic equipment inside the property.

There was also evidence the electricity had been illegally abstracted.

Insp Gordon Etheridge said: “This warrant was the latest action in our ongoing fight to disrupt people who are involved in the supply of illegal drugs in Dover.

“The plants in one of the tents were ready for harvesting, but thanks to this successful warrant, they will never reach the streets.”

 

Inquiries are ongoing and officers are appealing for anyone with information about the factory, or has seen people visiting the house, to contact them.

Insp Etheridge added: “We rely on the public and our partners to provide us with information about the supply of illegal drugs.

“This is a good example of where we have acted on such information, carried out our own research and gathered sufficient intelligence to carry out a successful search warrant at the address.”

Signs of a cannabis factory can include windows being permanently covered from the inside and visits to the address not matching normal residents’ patterns, that is people calling daily or weekly but only for short periods of time.

Often a pungent smell will emanate from the building.

 

Sometimes this even seeps through walls to adjacent properties.

Other telltale signs can include compost bags and other gardening equipment in the garden or close to the back door without any clear indication of normal gardening, or vents protruding from the roof tiles.

Insp Etheridge added: “If people have concerns we urge them to contact us.

“Every piece of information we receive can help build a picture of drug supply in their area.

“We will do our best to protect the public from harm and ensure an effective response to those who are most vulnerable in our communities.”

Cannabis club fills the info gap for California seniors

https://www.forbes.com/sites/abbierosner/2019/01/13/rossmoor-cannabis-club-fills-the-info-gap-for-california-seniors/#736e9fc7a446

 

Tucked between the affluent San Francisco suburbs of Lafayette and Walnut Creek is Rossmoor, an upscale senior-living community of some 10,000 residents 55 and older. Rossmoor members have a plethora of activities at their convenience, from bridge to bocce ball to social clubs (Boomers Forever!). But they are also among the few older adults in this country who can find expert information on how to use medical marijuana right in their own community.

Rossmoor’s Medical Marijuana Education and Support Club is one of the community’s most popular activities, with an email list of over 1000 names testifying to the locals’ voracious appetite for learning about cannabis. From Rossmoor and the surrounding towns, inquisitive seniors crowd the clubhouse twice a month to hear guest lecturers: cannabis researchers, professional practitioners, activists and industry representatives, who share their knowledge and practical insights.

On a recent Tuesday evening, I was one of those undaunted by the East Bay chill and drizzle who made it to Rossmoor to hear a talk on ‘Cannabis and Seniors,” presented by the public education officer of a San Francisco dispensary. There I met Renee Lee, a 66-year-old clinical psychologist and president of the club, who was also one of its founders. She recalled responding to an ad in the local newspaper back in 2011, seeking fellow residents interested in starting a medical marijuana club. “Originally it was intended as more of a social activity, but as a therapist, I felt it was important to include an educational component.” Around 20 people showed up for those initial meetings, which now regularly attract up to 200 participants.

 

Waiting for the program to begin, the attendees sipped tea and nibbled cookies while they perused the Information charts and tables lined with books on medical marijuana and CBD, along with advertisements for cannabis-infused mints, teas and other products (no samples). Conspicuous among the seasoned crowd were the odd young cannabis company representatives, there to learn a thing or two about this unique target market.

In the front row waiting attentively for the program to begin were three generations of a single family. The 72-year-old bearded patriarch explained to me that he had disdained pot smokers his entire life, but when conventional medicine wasn’t helping with his various ailments, he was finally willing to reconsider his attitude about marijuana. His daughter sitting next to him, a registered nurse, was the one who convinced him to give marijuana a try. With the help of a nurse practitioner who guides many of the Rossmoor residents with their medical marijuana use, he is struggling to shake the stigma of his cannabis use, and finds that adding the term medical makes him take marijuana more seriously. His twenty-something grandson, seated at his other side, came along to the meeting to learn what he could.

Another regular club attendee was a 70-year-old woman who uses cannabis to treat fibromyalgia and the aches and pains resulting from two hip and two knee replacements. She finds the speakers at the club to be excellent, and the information much more relevant (and in her case, potentially life-saving) than what she was used to hearing. “It was here that I learned that my cannabis medicine could interact poorly with the blood thinner I was taking.”

Rossmoor’s Medical Marijuana Club is the second largest of its kind in the state, following on a similar club at the Southern California retirement community of Laguna Woods. Considering that California is at the vanguard for most things cannabis, the Rossmoor club might actually be the second largest medical marijuana club for seniors in the country, or in the world for that matter. But what I find most remarkable about these clubs is the model they present of a community that is proactively educating itself about medical marijuana, at a time when accurate and unbiased information is so hard to find.

Older adults interested in medical marijuana often find that the mainstream healthcare system treats the drug like an illicit stepchild. At the club meeting I attended, several participants described the resistance they encountered from their physicians when they expressed interest in cannabis therapeutics (this, in the state that pioneered medical marijuana laws). And if their doctors did express support, they specifically emphasized that they were speaking off the record.

Even with the blessing of a doctor, navigating the dizzying array of products, modes of administration and dosing options can be a strong deterrent for older adults, in spite of the help of the best-intentioned dispensary staff.

Getting information from the internet can also be confusing and risky. A recent study found that 76% of claims about medical marijuana made by popular websites were inaccurate and based on low-quality evidence.

For those who can afford it, there are private professionals who provide personal guidance through the often time-consuming trial-and-error process of achieving an effective medical marijuana regimen. Yet with cannabis products already a costly expense not covered by medical insurance, hiring a personal guide can be a luxury out of reach for many seniors.

This is why the Rossmoor Medical Marijuana Education and Support Club, with its lectures, website and built-in community, is such a valuable resource.

Politically, the Rossmoor cannabis community has proven itself a force to be reckoned with. Rossmoor is located in the highly conservative Contra Costa County, which is notoriously inhospitable to cannabis commerce. But when legislation was recently being considered that would make it more difficult for Rossmoor residents to get their medicine (there are no nearby dispensaries, forcing residents to rely mainly on deliveries from dispensaries in Oakland and other proximate locations), the club members packed the city council meetings to make their voices heard. As one resident explained, “We wanted them to see who the dangerous drug fiends they were so afraid of actually are.”

After the lecture, I spoke with a woman from a retirement complex not far from Rossmoor, who together with a colleague, has organized a similar club for their community. She believes that at least 35% of their residents use medical marijuana, but many of them are just coming out in public about it. Expecting only a small number for their first meeting, the organizers were overwhelmed when 125 people showed up. “In our area we don’t have any delivery services, but we are determined to educate ourselves and not simply rely on dispensary staff to sell us our medicine.”

In the future, Renee Lee intends to expand the club’s format beyond guest lectures to include discussion groups where members can share their experiences regarding what works for them and what doesn’t.  In the meantime, as seniors across the country continue to gain access to medical marijuana, in the absence of clear guidance on how to fully reap its benefits, Rossmoor demonstrates that sometimes it takes a village to protect one’s vital interests.

 

AI-driven DNA sequencing provides medical cannabis insights

AI-driven DNA sequencing provides medical cannabis insights

 

rtificial intelligence (AI) is being paired with DNA sequencing to bring much-needed insight to the rapidly growing medical cannabis market.

In many parts of the world, medical cannabis is becoming increasingly accepted, as attitudes change and governments relax laws on its use.

However, the amount of data available on its appropriate use and prescription remains very poor when compared to traditional pharmaceuticals, meaning prescribing medical cannabis can become a trial and error affair.

 

To tackle this issue, medical technology company Frelii is enhancing DNA sequencing with AI to provide rapid insight into different strains and delivery formats, which can be used to assist medical professionals with appropriate prescriptions.

“AI combined with DNA sequencing is a match made in heaven because it can bring to light previously unexplored connections that can impact entire industries such as the rapidly expanding medical marijuana market to health care at large,” said Ian Jenkins, CEO of Frelii.

 

“AI provides insight into the function of genetic expression and helps removes the guess work.”

AI-powered DNA sequencing beyond medical cannabis
Although Frelii’s current focus is on medical cannabis, the company is also applying its technology to the wider healthcare market, due to the speed increase it provides over conventional DNA sequencing.

 

“AI provides insight into the function of genetic expression and helps removes the guess work,” said Jenkins.

“The rapid evolution of AI-based DNA sequencing is delivering new insight into the genome coupled with connections and patterns of gene expression at a scale we have never seen before.”

The technology also has the potential to be used in personalised medicine, which is tailored to an individual based on their precise DNA.

 

“Our own Frelii AI system stands at the forefront to empower personalised and precision medicine in new and exciting way,” he said.

“Frelii looks at every data point on the genome and analyses how each point is interconnected with every other data point. This is a fundamentally different approach to DNA sequencing and analysis.

“We produce 60 Million data points, vs the typical 400-700 thousand, as with typical consume- level DNA kits. What we end up with are hard facts that say what the human body will do as well as information regarding what it could do when drugs, medications, supplements and lifestyle changes are introduced.”

SIGN OF THE TIMES Washington State forced to replace ‘Mile 420’ road sign with ‘Mile 419.9’ after weed enthusiasts keep stealing it

Hi

 

SIGN OF THE TIMES Washington State forced to replace ‘Mile 420’ road sign with ‘Mile 419.9’ after weed enthusiasts keep stealing it

 

The Sun

 

 

Washington isn’t alone in the battle – Colorado actually created a Mile 419.99 marker for their Interstates

 

WASHINGTON State has been forced to replace the “Mile 420” road sign with “Mile 419.9” after weed enthusiasts kept stealing it.

For years stoners have persistently stolen the distinctive green and white mile markers posted along the highway.

 

Mile 420 is particularly popular – owning to the culture of lighting up at 4.20pm in the afternoon, and using April 20 as an excuse for cannabis celebration.

Other legends of the 420-origin claim it comes from a police calling code mistakenly thought to mean someone was caught smoking pot.

According to the New York Times, Mile 69 is also highly sought after – for obvious reasons.

The Times reported Transportation Department Trevor McCain as saying: “They will typically go and take those more than anything.

 

“They have special meanings to some people.”

In an ingenious attempt to best the sign thieves, the department came up with a simple solution – they’ve simply moved the highway marker back one-tenth of a mile and tweaked the sign to say Mile 419.9 or Mile 68.9.

Unfortunately, possibly taking the signs as a novelty, it wasn’t long before they became the target.

In 2009, the state deployed a Mile 68.9 to Route 231 in eastern Washington.

Two years went by, and the solution looked promising, then someone stole it.

 

Three years after that, its replacement disappeared.

And in another two years, the 68.9 mile marker was pilfered yet again.

In the 20-year-old battle department have even gone to the length of installing a steel pole grounded in concrete – but someone just came along with a truck and yanked the sign right back out.

But these thefts are no laughing matter – the signs are intended to help emergency services quickly locate a crash.

 

In rural areas, they can be critical in finding someone in trouble.

The Transportation Department has also tried to impress upon people that the financial burden of replacing these signs ultimately falls on taxpayers.

Washington isn’t alone in the battle either – Colorado actually created a Mile 419.99 marker for Interstate 70, The Denver Post reported.
