  • ‘Cannabis king’ sentenced to 22 months in prison for bribing San Luis Obispo politician.

    Helios Dayspring had one goal: build a cannabis empire that, in his words, would be “too big to fail.”

    But as he acquired hundreds of acres of land to grow the product and opened storefronts along California’s Central Coast to sell it, Dayspring’s ambition led him to bribery.

    His target was a county supervisor who, in exchange for cash and other perks, pushed measures that advanced the interests of his secret benefactor and tried to stifle those that didn’t.

    After a lengthy hearing Friday, U.S. District Judge André Birotte Jr. sentenced Dayspring to 22 months in prison for bribing a public official and filing a false tax return.

  • Portland marijuana production blunder sickened more than a dozen: Here’s how it happened.

    Oregon regulators recalled Select brand THC and CBD drops last September after discovering the manufacturer, Curaleaf, confused those containing psychoactive ingredients with those that did not. Oregon Liquor and Cannabis Commission.

    A calamitous mix-up at a Portland marijuana bottling plant apparently originated with a single employee who confused two similar buckets with nearly identical identification numbers, according to a state investigative report.

    The report does not specify, though, whether manufacturer Curaleaf had any quality control measures in place to catch such mistakes, and state investigators withheld some key details of their findings.

    Nevertheless, the report – obtained by The Oregonian/OregonLive through a public records request – is the first direct account of how Curaleaf confused bottles of marijuana drops with those containing CBD, a wellness product that doesn’t have psychoactive properties.

    Following Curaleaf’s blunder, at least a dozen people who thought they were taking benign CBD drops reporting becoming ill after ingesting jumbo doses of THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.

    At least five customers reported going to the emergency room after taking the mislabeled drops; two said they were driving when they were incapacitated by an unexpected marijuana high.

    Curaleaf maintains that it complied with state safety requirements, but in a statement this week acknowledged its responsibility in the incident and described several new safety procedures. Among other reforms, Curaleaf said it now tests samples before selling its products.

    “The health and safety of our patients and customers remains our number one priority and we feel confident about the changes made to ensure this doesn’t happen again,” the company said.

    Curaleaf sells both the CBD and THC products under the Select brand name. Oregon regulators recalled the products last summer following a customer complaint and quickly concluded that Curaleaf had mislabeled several hundred bottles. Consumers purchased at least 523.

    Massachusetts-based Curaleaf, one of the nation’s largest recreational marijuana companies, now faces a 70-day suspension from Oregon regulators and a record, $200,000 fine. Curaleaf plans to contest the penalties before an administrative law judge.

    The mishap represents the first big test of how the Oregon Liquor & Cannabis Commission handles consumer safety and how it applies its regulatory standards.

  • Judge allows Illinois to issue licenses for 185 new cannabis stores following prolonged legal delay.

    After nearly 10 months of delay, a judge Friday ended the court order preventing Illinois from issuing 185 new recreational cannabis store licenses — though further litigation may jeopardize those licenses again.

    Cook County Circuit Judge Michael Mullen lifted the stay that was issued last year, allowing the state to begin licensing new businesses, many of them started by Black and Latino owners.

  • To discover cannabis is to recognize our complex history, and pursue an end to injustice by lifting up victims of the war on weed with the freedoms that legalization presents.

  • A wine lover might choose between a pinot noir, a sangiovese and a viognier to go with dinner. A pot connoisseur, on the other hand, could choose between strains with names like "purple haze," "chocolope" and "green crack."

    Bizarre names are a time-honored tradition among pot growers, going back at least to the 1970s, when strains such as "Maui Waui" (from Hawaii, naturally) came onto the scene. Why such goofy names? Well, one reason might be the process behind the naming decisions.

    "So many times, we've finally got to the end of a strain, and we have it right there and it's done, and we're like, 'What do we call it?'" one of the co-owners of Amsterdam's DNA Genetics, a cannabis seed bank, told the LA Times in July 2014. "And we sit there, and we call all our friends and smoke. That's a brainstorm session."
