Black Market Fears Rise Over Now-Unregulated Hash-Infused Products

Now that three states have already begun the process of legalizing certain amounts ofmarijuana, black-market sales are becoming a concern. According to Associated Press on July 15, hash, a concentrated form of marijuana, is coming under scrutiny specifically.


 


Hash, or hash oil is a concentrated marijuana extract. Part of the reason hash is now being brought up is that it wasn't clearly addressed in the new marijuana laws. As Jim Anderson, owner of a company that sells hash to medical marijuana dispensaries in Seattle states, "Every major culture that has marijuana associated with it has hash associated with it as well." So it is just thought to be a matter of time before hash begins to catch on and without regulation, it could get out of hand and across marijuana-legal state lines quickly.


The Associated Press notes that right now concerns are that new laws aren't made to regulate a concentrated substance, so consumers would be able to buy hash in quantities that far exceed the amount necessary for "personal use".


A Seattle lawyer who helped write the state’s marijuana law states that the 72-ounce restriction on infused liquids, which hash is, was originally made with teas and sodas in mind. As WebProNews points out, "While pure hash oil is verboten, hash “infused” products are fair game. So, in theory, a substance made of 99 parts hash oil to 1 part olive oil is fair game."


Lawmakers still have time to amend the law to include restrictions of hash before the state-licensed stores open next year.

Who dictates the amount necessary for 'personal use' ?

 

I am unable to find it atm, but I recall very recently reading a post here about the amount

the Fed MMJ program considers necessary for personal use, and it was like 1oz per three days.

Good Morning imi.

 

The stuff is self titrating, meaning an individual uses enough to best treat symptoms. That can vary widely from patient to patient. The closest we come to a quantity dictate is in the 12 plant/2.5 oz limits in sec. 4.

The federal dose is 360 joints a month.(8-9 ounces) Probably around 30 grams of hash/oil a month using a conversion factor.

WTF? Do the people who write these articles have even a clue about marijuana? The only difference between marijuana and the resin extracted from its leaves (hash) is that the hash is just a concentrated version and therefore doesn't take as much to obtain the desired effect. One can smoke a whole joint of flower or a few puffs of hash and there is no difference in effect. The person who wrote this article makes it sound as if hash isn't related to marijuana at all. IT IS THE SAME THING YOU STUPID, IGNORANT LAME BRAIN. Oh , and it for sure needs some serious REGULATION because if it gets "out of hand" some people could actually get too high and we all know what happens when people get too high, don't we?

Phuck you, you backward, 19th century, Puritan, Victorian dipshit. This is the 21st century. Why don't you catch up and join the rest of the world?
