The latest Hemp / Medical Marijuana Industry News
A Georgia cop gets nailed for running with the Gangster Disciples, a New Jersey cop gets busted for peddling pot, an Indiana cop gets popped for peddling pills, and more. Let's get to it:
In Linden, New Jersey, a Linden police sergeant was arrested last Thursday on charges he was peddling pot. Officer William Turbett III, 30, is charged with fourth-degree distribution of marijuana, as well as pot possession. Turbett had already been suspended without pay for an unrelated matter. He's now looking at up to 18 months in prison.
In York, Pennsylvania, a York County sheriff's deputy was arrested last Friday on charges he stole drug money from the departmental evidence room. Sgt. Troy Senft is accused of pilfering $760. He is charged with theft, destroying evidence, tampering with evidence, obstruction, and receiving stolen property. He is out on his own recognizance. The cash was set to be seized, but Senft seized it for himself.
In Indianapolis, a former Anderson police officer pleaded guilty last Wednesday to federal drug possession and distribution charges. Donald Jordan, 52, went down after a confidential informant told police he Jordan had approached him to sell marijuana, then provided him with hydrocodone tablets. That sparked an audit of the department evidence room, where pills and $5,000 in cash turned up missing. He copped to one count of possession with intent to distribute and to distribute Xanax, a Schedule IV controlled substance and one count of distribution and intent to distribute hydrocodone. He's looking at up to 15 years in federal prison.
The discovery of the properties of CBD oil has given rise to a new form of alternative medicine. Unlike the medical community, which has been struggling to create a viable formula to treat serious and life-threatening ailments, CBD oil has been around for several years. There are a variety of different forms available in the United States that contain the CBD oil benefits of an organic plant. The most popular form is known as CBD hemp oil, this is made by steeping CBD Cannabidiol in hemp plants for a long period of time in order to extract the plant's CBD and other important nutrients. The result is a highly potent product, which contains the highest amount of the healing properties of the CBD oil benefits to offer.
The human body is designed to use various nutrients for healing purposes. Many of these nutrients are derived from plant sources such as CBD oil. As humans we have been eating plants since the beginning of time for the purpose of providing health benefits. Even though this has been the case, today's western diets are lacking in the essential nutrients we need to maintain our optimal health.
For centuries human beings have relied on plants to provide these natural nutrients to us. In today's modern world however, there is nothing natural about our diets. Most of our foods contain only the artificial additives and preservatives necessary to help keep them from decaying or rotting away. This can be very detrimental to our health in the short and long term.
