Hemp producer relieved by judge's ruling

A pioneer in Wyoming’s fledgling hemp industry accused of growing marijuana for distribution is praising the circuit court judge who dismissed the charges against his mother and him.

“We’re relieved that the charges were dropped and appreciate the judge doing the right thing,” said Josh Egle, a Denver resident who raises hemp on his land near Albin.

Egle and his mother Deb Palm-Egle were both charged with a variety of marijuana growing and distribution charges after a raid of their farm in November by the state Division of Criminal Investigation.

Under Wyoming law, levels of THC – the active ingredient in marijuana – in hemp must remain below 0.3%. DCI tests of 700 pounds of hemp taken from the Egles’ farm showed levels of up to 0.6%.

Judge Antoinette Williams dismissed the charges against the Egles, saying that such a low THC content showed the two did not intend to produce marijuana, only hemp.

Egle said he understood the misunderstandings that could lead to such charges being filed.

“It’s nitpicky, but the industry is so new, there’s a lot of learning that has to go on,” he said.

Egle and his mother, spurred by the success of hemp in Colorado, were champions of efforts to legalize hemp in Wyoming going back to 2016, lobbying Wyoming lawmakers to get the proper laws passed. In 2017, legislation was passed legalizing hemp as a crop in the state, but no funding was provided for regulation of the crop.

It wasn’t until 2019 that the state completed its own rules for hemp production. Federal government approval for those plans came later and in early 2020, the state began issuing licenses for hemp production.

Egle said he started growing a test plot on his land in 2019 without a license because he wanted to collect the information farmers need on how to grow a successful crop.

“I had seen the money farmers were making (in Colorado) and seeing the opportunities Wyoming was missing while waiting for the program to get up and running,” he said. “We finally made the decision for getting hemp going without a license. We decided to press forward with a research field, which was all designed to help farmers get information.”

One of the things the test plot was designed to demonstrate was the ideal growing season for hemp, Egle said. He said THC levels in hemp rise near the end of the hemp’s life, so even one week in the ground can make the difference between a legal hemp crop and one that exceeds THC levels.

“You have to harvest earlier when those levels are lower,” he said. “We were trying to figure out when that time would be.”

Egle said he believes DCI was looking for a marijuana growing operation when its agents raided his farm.

“I think they came not even really with hemp on their radar, but just to bust a marijuana farm,” he said. “When presented with all the circumstances, they decided to continue to proceed with charges.”

This year, Ron Rabou, who farms Egle’s land, is raising hemp for its seeds, Egle said.

“Hemp seed is one of the best proteins,” he said. “There’s a lot of talk about turning it into another source of animal feed It’s becoming a popular thing in the grocery.”

So far, hemp has shown itself to be a good crop for eastern Wyoming’s conditions, Egle said.

“Grain hemp grows on dryland, it can go for five or six weeks without water,” he said. “With hardly any rain, the plants still survived.”

Abstract

Background: Biliary system ascariasis can be a rare cause of acute abdomen.

Patient report: A 70-year-old woman presented with abdominal pain for two weeks. She complained of a right upper quadrant (RUQ) pain, intermittent vomiting and weight loss. Physical examination showed RUQ and epigastric tenderness without rebound tenderness or guarding. Laboratory finding exhibited leukocytosis and mildly elevated liver enzymes.

Results: Abdominal sonography showed distended gallbladder and a tubular lesion inside the common bile duct (CBD) in favor of a parasitic lesion. A large ascaris roundworm and blood clots were extracted from the CBD by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography and sphincterotomy. After 7 days, the disease process was complicated with a subhepatic abscess formation which was managed conservatively. Finally, the patient was discharged home in fair condition after 12 days of hospitalization.

Conclusions: Ascariasis should be considered in endemic areas and early endoscopic intervention and medical therapy can be effective for extrahepatic involvement.

Keywords: Abdominal abscess; abdominal pain; ascariasis; common bile duct; endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography.

Any good CBD cartridges with no THC?

Republished by Plato

Not sure if this is the place to ask, I’m just getting started with vaping so I’m sorry if I sound dumb! I’m currently using a THC cart but I’m back in a state where that’s not legal and I don’t always like how it makes me feel so I was wondering if there’s cartridges that are just CBD that you can order online? If so, what are some good companies? I don’t want to just order from anywhere. Thank you for any information!
