LA County Prosecutors Teams Up With Tech Group to Clear 66,000 Cannabis Convictions

The lead prosecutor for Los Angeles County announced on Thursday that her office had teamed with a nonprofit tech group to clear 66,000 past marijuana convictions, some going back as long as six decades. Earlier this week, District Attorney Jackie Lacey filed a motion to erase 66,000 felony convictions going back to 1961 and another 4,000 convictions for misdemeanor offenses from 10 cities in Los Angeles County.

The motion was signed by Superior Court Judge Sam Ohta on Tuesday. With the judge’s order, approximately 22,000 offenders will no longer have a felony on the records. Another 15,000 will no longer have any criminal record at all.

Aluminum Cans May Reduce the Potency of Cannabis Beverages

According to scientists, the lining on aluminum cans has the potential to diminish the potency of substances like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). In an interview with Yahoo! Finance Canada, Harold Han, who is the founder and chief science officer of Vertosa, a company that creates active ingredients for infused products, says the theory is that "the cannabis material, the droplets, will stick to the liner and cling on it. When you open the can to take a drink, it will lose its potency."

The surprising way coronavirus affects the marijuana industry

Since its arrival in December, the coronavirus has infected more than 42,000 people and claimed more than 1,000 lives. Many travel plans and routes have been disrupted as well, with some cruise ships facing strict quarantines to diminish the coronavirus from spreading. To further prevent the disease outbreak, at least 24 Chinese provinces have shut down businesses and factories.

This move, while critical to world health, has had a substantial impact on global trade. That includes the cannabis industry, where marijuana vaporizer companies often rely on Chinese manufacturers to produce hardware. You might be surprised to learn that almost every component of vaporizers come from Chinese factories, with cannabis oil serving as the only American-made good in many vaping products.
