Cannabis News: New 115th Congress Introduce Bills to Reform Federal Marijuana Laws #420 #weedtuber


Hey Stoners Welcome to The Johno Show I’m your weedtuber host Jonathan. It’s Monday February 6th 2017 so it’s time for some 420 news. Our main story tonight is that this new session of Congress is filled with bills to reform federal marijuana laws. But first our other weed news.

In “Would you like your fries Extra Crispy” News…

Garrett Norris, 20, and Meagan Dearborn, 19, were arrested for dealing weed out of a Burger King drive thru. The two worked at the Epping, New Hampshire Burger King. A sting operation was put in place by Police Chief Mike Wallace and once enough evidence was substantiated they moved in with the arrest.

In order to purchase the pot all a buyer had to do was drive up and ask for “Nasty Boy.” Norris’s alias. “Once it was verified he was working, they had to ask for their fries extra crispy.” An exchange of cash through the drive-through window and boom you had pot with burger order.

In “You know we’re going legit” news…
When Apple filed a patent on July 20th in what looks like their entry into vaporizers for the cannabis industry.

The patent doesn’t mention cannabis specifically, but the device, which features a movable heating plate that sits just above the substance and slides downward as the substance is vaporized does seem consistent for vaporization of marijuana. In fact, the design of the device looks like it would work with both flower and extracts. It also seems more suited to oils or solid extracts.

In “Daddy that man smells like weed” News…

Perfume company Xyrena is launching what it calls the first “strain-specific cannabis perfumes.” Frequent shoppers of Spencer’s Gifts know that Marijuana perfumes aren’t new but Xyrena is trying to take a classier approach.

Xyrena is releasing three unisex perfumes based off the following strains strains: Blue Dream, OG Kush and Space Cake.

In “Set It Free! Set It Free!” News…

The wait is finally over for the citizens of Maine to toke up legally. Maine’s legalization law allows regular possession of up to 2 1/2 ounces of marijuana and the cultivation of 6 flowering plants, 6 immature plants and an unlimited number of seedlings.

Maine’s legalization law has come up against the hostility of Governor Paul LePage. Lepage argued that voters didn’t understand the legalization law. He even signed a moratorium on the implementation of regulated cannabis sales.

But now finally, Maine residents will enjoy the benefits of ending cannabis regulations. Law enforcement will be better utilized by reducing the number of citations, arrests, prosecutions and jailings for cannabis offenses. Thousands of new jobs will help stimulate the local economy and millions in new tax revenue will be generated for important social services.

Finally our top story…
Two new bills set to reform federal marijuana laws were introduced in Congress this week. Republican Congressman Morgan Griffith from Virginia introduced H.R. 714 and H.R. 715, which would reschedule cannabis under the Controlled Substances Act CSA.

H.R. 714 known as the Legitimate Use of Medicinal Marijuana Act (LUMMA), would move cannabis from its status under Schedule I to Schedule II. It would also ensure that the CSA would not “prohibit or otherwise restrict” state-authorized use, possession, transportation, production and distribution of medical marijuana.
The second bill H.R. 715 known as the Compassionate Access Act, is cosponsored by Democratic Congressman Earl Blumenauer of Oregon. It also reschedules marijuana but doesn’t mandate a move to Schedule II specifically, leaving the door open for cannabis to be placed even lower in the CSA.

The bill also excludes CBDs from the federal definition of marijuana, specifying that it is not to be treated as a controlled substance.

HIGHNY’s next event will be on February 22nd. The event takes place at at Impact Hub 394 Broadway 5th Floor from 7-9pm. Dinner, Drinks (21+), & Giveaways. Tickets are $25:

This is really great news for recreational weed to eventually go nationwide!  If you've got Republicans from Virginia introducing bills, then we're almost there.

This is EXCITING guys. NOW is the time to be ACTIVE in calling ANYONE involved in voting on this rescheduling. The REASON why, is THIS OPENS UP RESEARCH. LEGALLY. Oh. My. LORD. All states, All making money. Sooo much science for new students to look into. That NO AMERICAN (outside of privileged selected sites previously, and when it was legal 1-2 generations ago) has looked into or even had access to previous reliable information.

We NEED to classify it as class 2 so we can open up our young to a new field of science. The CBD system, thc and its cross effects with every. single. terpene that gets created. classifiying what does what. Eventually this means you can order terpenes to flavor ANYTHING. deserts, smoke, candy, lemon garlic chicken? anything. Blue Dream Curry? Holy shit.

Things no one has ever been able to, because it is not legal in most states to develope extraction facilities, etc.

The time is coming where a new generation of entrapaneours will take control of the economic future of america, furthering our scientific industrial capabilities. FINALLY being able to replace using our research on the different cannabinoids traditional lower end medication that focuses on symptom relief.

This isn't a joke, this is new exciting, uptick in the welfare of the American people. Imagine how many unfortunately ignorant or uneducated older people that are suffering that are obstinate to medication because they don't know any better from the last disinformation campaign and the "war on drugs" dragging MMJ into the mess.

Take control of your own life. If you don't feel good, do something about it.

Just fuckin' do it folks.

Just a heads up to dispensaries. You'd better be testing for mold and other things because if you don't they are about to shut you down. They are gonna be doing surprise tests across the country looking for mold and other harmful bacteria to try to keep it illegal and you can bet money Sessions is behind it.

Congratulations to the people of Maime !! …… from Australia.

1973 Chyrsler New Yorker Dill says:

Make America Green Again. Reschedule it the same as oregano.

Wisdom King says:

They will fight it till the bitter end . Or till they have total control over it .  Legalize already I am so sick of the war on drugs .
