Mexican Cannabis Legalization: Why Hasn’t Legislation Passed?

It’s been well over two years since Mexico’s Supreme Court made its 5th consecutive ruling which knocked down cannabis prohibition. And yet, with no debate as to whether legislation must pass, it still has not, making cannabis remain in the legal gray area of Supreme Court legalization, and legislative illegality. So, what’s the current story with Mexican cannabis legalization?

The world changes quickly – new states are legalizing cannabis every day, and even Mexican cannabis legislation is set to go through eventually, even if not on time. In this ever-changing world of cannabis, one of the newer, and more exciting, additions to the products family, is delta-8 THC, a slightly different variation of delta-9 THC, which causes less anxiety in users, and provides a clear-headed high. Sound beneficial? We’ve got great delta-8 THC deals so you can give it a go yourself, and keep up with the newest change in the industry.

Why cannabis is already kind-of legal in Mexico

The most interesting aspect of the current Mexican cannabis legalization dilemma, is that there isn’t really a debate to be had over general legality. Though the public might be fooled by titles like this from last year: Mexican Senate Passes Bill To Legalize Marijuana Nationwide, which make it sound like the decision was only just made, this is not the case at all.

Back in October 2018, the Supreme Court of Mexico made its 5th of five consecutive rulings related to cannabis possession. The ruling was in favor of the defendants, and since it was the 5th consecutive ruling of its kind, it kicked in jurisprudencia. In Mexico, jurisprudencia takes effect if the Supreme Court makes five consecutive rulings on a specific matter, and when this happens, the ruling becomes binding for all lower courts, essentially creating judicial law.

What does this do? It puts the judiciary branch of government at odds with the legislative branch, which was not changed due to the Supreme Court rulings. The legislative branch of government is then required to update itself in order to stay in concert with the courts. As such, though the decision of legality has technically been made, how this will be done has not been hammered out fully, leading Mexico’s legislature to ask for extensions for 2.5 years running. For anyone confused, the extensions have no bearing on whether legislation will pass, as it has already been decided that it must. The only thing being argued about, are the exact provisions related to the upcoming Mexican cannabis legalization.

cannabis plants Mexico

What does this mean for the ‘right now’? Good question. Right now, no lower court can punish a person for basic possession, cultivation, or use. This does not have any bearing on sale, supply, and trafficking crimes, all of which still come with heavy jailtime. The problem is that though this exists as a judicial fact, in a country like Mexico where law enforcement will often shake people down regardless of a real crime committed, having this disconnect between judicial law and legislative law, creates a weird gray area where cannabis now resides. And this allows for people to still be targeted and punished by law enforcement, even if they are never found guilty in court. On another practical level, it also stops a legal industry from being started.

One thing should be made clear, the Mexican Supreme Court rulings didn’t lead directly to cannabis legalization legislatively. That depends on Congress to pass. But it did back up that prohibition of cannabis is unconstitutional, which forces the legislature to change current laws.

The long list of extensions

The Mexican cannabis legalization quandary all started in 2015, with the first supreme court ruling in a case against four members of the Mexican Society for Tolerant Self-Consumption. In the ruling, the defendants won the right to grow, possess, and transport cannabis. In this 1st ruling, the Criminal Chamber made the decision that individuals could not be barred from growing and distributing cannabis for personal use. The process for jurisprudencia ended in 2018, with two final rulings, both of which involved recreational cannabis use by an adult. In both cases, the Supreme Court found that an individual must be allowed to use, possess, and cultivate cannabis without government interference.

According to the court, the right to human development is a tenant of the Mexican constitution, and as such, individuals must be allowed to lead their recreational lives as they please.

When the 5th ruling was made, and jurisprudencia kicked in, it created an automatic requirement for the legislative branch to come out with the governing legislation. This was supposed to be done by the end of 2019, giving the government a year to put something together. It was not done. The first extension was granted at the 2019 deadline, and gave the government until the end of April in 2020.

When April 2020 rolled around, and the government was still not ready, the Supreme Court allowed another extension for the Mexican legislature to come up with cannabis legalization laws, giving it until December 15th 2020 to get its stuff together. Did it? Nope. On December 15th 2020, yet another extension was handed down to the government, giving it until April 30th, 2021. April 30th, 2021 was last week, and if you’ll notice, no cannabis bill has been passed through yet. What happened this time around?

Judicial legalization

This time around, it was surprisingly more quiet, like Mexico was hoping no one would notice that the government dropped the ball again. Unlike previous extensions that got more coverage, less has been said about this last postponement, with almost no articles even clarifying why it happened. Most articles about the postponement were written before it happened, alluding to the idea that it might.

The latest postponement

In early April, well before the law was due to be passed, rumblings started in congress that another extension would be needed. The bill in question technically passed the Senate last November, then went to the Chamber of Deputies, which made its revisions, before being handed back to the Senate. It got handed back to the very committee that passed it the first time around, only now, the same committee can’t seem to pass it again. It’s been going back and forth with arguments over revisions, and what is workable and what is not.

The Senate never actually asked for an extension this time around, it simply didn’t meet its deadline. Right now, there is talk of a possible special session to be scheduled after elections in June, but this is not a guarantee. There is still another thing to consider. Congress doesn’t get to just ignore deadlines. Which is probably a good thing, at least in a scenario like this.

What Congress’s inability to meet deadlines means (without being granted an extension), is that it puts the onus back on the Supreme Court to make a declaration about the unconstitutionality of cannabis prohibition. This would effectively legalize it legislatively, but without a structured system of regulation. There are two main issues to this being done. The first is that the makeup of the court has changed since its last ruling in 2018 triggered jurisprudencia. This could create an issue with a majority statement, as the current majority might not have the same feelings on the issue. The second, way bigger issue, is that it would create a legalization with absolutely no rules.

If the court chooses to take this action, it would take place before the special legislative session, creating fears that complete chaos will ensue. Of course, that’s coming from the Senate, which did not fulfill its court-instructed duty to pass the legislation in the first place.

Why is this happening?

One of the more complicated questions, is why is this happening? Let’s be honest for a second, every legalized location, whether for medical or recreational, has had to institute a regulatory system. Some of them even took as long as Mexico to do it. A lot is involved with building a regulation system for a legal market, but we also know from all those other locations, it can be done, and in much less time. Since we’re dealing with Mexico, which has narco interests, this becomes a more complicated issue. And the answer might just be that the government never intended to pass anything, for fear of repercussions.

cannabis legislation Mexico

The main complaints coming out of the Senate, are that the government needs to take more time to make sure it constructs the right bill. This includes making sure tobacco and pharmaceutical industry interests don’t get in the way, and that its regulated by an existing body, rather than a new one. The government also points out that it wants to make sure that licenses go to marginalized communities first, though advocates are saying the criteria isn’t strict enough to make this happen.

There have also been revisions about penalties for having over the allowed quantity of cannabis, the prevention of forest land from becoming growing fields, definitions for ‘hemp’, and issues surrounding how to prevent minors and vulnerable groups from problematic use.

Everything that was just said sure does sound like standard operating procedure for government, but as mentioned before, this is Mexico. And Mexico is practically run by drug cartels, which have a massive influence in government, as any large-standing criminal organization tends to. Take this study from 2018, which investigated how the Italian mafia uses violence in pre-election times to control results. Or consider that back in 2018, articles were published about how over 100 politicians had been killed in Mexico by cartel members in the lead-up to the election that year. It should be remembered that this industry has been 100% ruled by cartels thus far, so expecting that they’ll just give it up, is kind of silly.

Even so, it’s the stated line by government, that making the cannabis industry legal, will somehow wrestle control of it from the only organizations actually running it. Kind of makes you wonder who would want to cast a vote in this at all! Apart from government lines, there seems to be a general feeling that cannabis legislation likely won’t impact cartels much. There have even been stories out about cartels – like the Sinaloa cartel, claiming they will control the industry once it opens. Whether these claims are real is certainly hard to say, but even if they aren’t, the idea still holds.

Conclusion

The whole issue of Mexican cannabis legalization has created a global story that everyone seems to be following. And the best we can do now is wait and see. The legislation does have to be passed, which means eventually, someone has to be unhappy. The question now remains, who will that unhappy party be.

USPS Postpones Vape Ban, Not Yet Ready To Implement Final Rule

The long-awaited ban on mailing vape products will be delayed, according to the United States Postal Service, because the agency needs more time to figure out exactly how to implement the sweeping changes.

The ban was supposed to take effect Monday and apply to all vape companies, even those shipping products without nicotine. Since it spanned the cannabis industry, numerous companies the produce and/or distribute vape products have said the change will “severely harm their businesses.” This ban has been on the horizon for months now, but in a short exchange with MJBizDaily, a Postal Service spokesman said that USPS isn’t ready to implement the final rule just yet.

“Despite our best efforts, in order to ensure thorough and thoughtful consideration of the complex issues and voluminous comments by industry, individual, and governmental stakeholders, the Postal Service is unable to publish a final rule by today’s target date,” spokesman David P. Coleman said in an email.

Coleman said the USPS would finalize the rule “as soon as possible.” He added that “Mailers should be prepared for implementation upon publication anytime.”

Just last week the Postal Service reminded businesses about the ban so they can make whatever changes are needed and possible. FedEx and UPS already have said they will follow the U.S. Postal Service’s directive and will NOT ship any vape products. With no major carriers willing to move vape products, businesses are now stuck navigating both the new PACT Act requirements and finding a new way to ship their products.

Background on The Vape Ban

This vape ban is not a ban in the true sense of the word. It’s a ban on the shipping of vape products, not on the actual use, production, or sale of them. And because cannabis vape products fall under the general term of ‘tobacco products’, it doesn’t actually specify anything about cannabis, if we’re choosing to get technical here.

The ban is for “tobacco” vaping products being shipped through UPS, FEDEX, USPS, and other major couriers. This does not mean companies cannot sell products, or ship them through the mail through a small private company, but it does mean they will need to scramble a bit and figure out what they will do before

In a way, it’s a ban that isn’t technically a ban, as there is no ban on any company or individual. This means the US government is not trying to legally stop people from using these products, or companies from making them, but it does seem to be trying to determine how the public can get products, and what products will be available to them. Overregulation for the sake of overregulation.

Final Thoughts

It might take a while before things are running smoothly for everyone. Companies will be looking for ways to get their products to consumers, while consumers are faced with the issue of finding their favorite items at the prices they’ve grown accustomed to. Luckily, this delay gives everyone a bit more time to stock up on Delta 8 vape carts before the new regulations are fully in place.

How to Test Delta-10 Products to Ensure They Are Real

What to do when a substance is unregulated, but flying off the shelves anyway? The best answer is to make sure there’s some method to test it, to confirm that it is what it’s supposed to be. This is the case for newer forms of THC currently hitting the market. Now, a laboratory has put forth a way to test the authenticity of both delta-8 and delta-10 products, to ensure they are real.

With new ways to test delta-8 and delta-10 products, getting quality vapes and oils is getting much easier. Both of these new THC versions provide slightly different benefits from delta-9, and can be beneficial for people experiencing too much delta-9-related anxiety. We’ve got great delta-8 THC deals for you to check out what it’s like to use an alternate form of THC.

What are delta-8 and delta-10 THCs?

Delta-8 THC – Delta-8 THC is a naturally occurring derivative of delta-9 THC, the most commonly understood cannabinoid of the cannabis plant. Delta-8 is produced through oxidation when delta-9 THC comes into contact with oxygen, causing small amounts of it to lose electrons, which converts it into delta-8 THC. The only structural difference between the two, is the placement of a double carbon bond. For delta-8, it sits on the 8th atom in the chain, and for delta-9, on the 9th. The chemical structure for both is: C21H30O2.

The two compounds are very similar, producing many of the same medical effects, however, they have some stark differences as well. Delta-8 THC produces less psychoactive effect, so users don’t experience as intense of a high. It also causes less anxiety and paranoia in users, making it the optimal answer for cannabis aficionados who experience a lot of anxiety with delta-9. Delta-8 is also associated with a more clear-headed and energetic high, something that makes it better for physical activities, even athletics.

Delta-8 THC is not newly discovered, but has been known about since around the time delta-9 was found. It was partially synthesized by Roger Adams in 1941, with total synthesis established by Raphael Mechoulam in 1965, along with delta-9 THC which was isolated first in 1964. It was even the subject of medical testing, particularly by Mechoulam, who established delta-8 THC as a treatment for the nausea and vomiting associated with cancer treatments in kids, actually showing an elimination of vomiting in the children. As we know already though, the world was slow to catch on.

Delta-8 made a resurgence recently with the application of the 2018 US Farm Bill which opened the door for industrial hemp cultivation, and production of hemp-based products. As a naturally occurring derivative of THC that can come from hemp, but one that requires human processing in order to create large enough amounts for use, delta-8 THC might fit into a legal loophole – but not for sure. This has not been specified further to give clarity to the situation by either the DEA’s Interim Final Rule, or the more recent USDA Final Rule. Until the definition of ‘synthetic’ is updated to identify if human processing fits the definition, delta-8 will likely remain legally ambiguous.

Delta-10 THC Delta-10 THC, though nearly identical in structure to both delta-8 and delta-9 THCs, is a little different. The first difference should be obvious. The double carbon bond sits on the 10th atom in the chain. However, more importantly, it cannot be created on its own in nature. It is a 100% synthetic compound that requires human help for chemical processing, which puts it in a different category than its previously mentioned counterparts. We’ll get to why this matters in a second, but for now, let’s take a quick look at the strange story that brought us delta-10 products.

Delta-10 THC was brought to scientific attention later than delta-8 and delta-9, and happened as part of an accident at the company Fusion Farms, in California, in the year 1980. California is the location for raging forest fires, and flame retardant chemicals are used frequently to limit, or stave off, the damage of these fires. Fusion Farms was in the business of creating cannabis oil extracts at the time, and didn’t realize that their outdoor flowers were being contaminated by these (toxic) chemicals.

No one thought it would be an issue at the time, and the company personnel continued producing the oil, just to find strange crystals that had never been seen before, forming. Upon further and more intricate inspection, it was found that these crystals were actually a different form of THC, this time, the never-before-seen delta-10, with the double helix on the 10th atom. So, unlike it’s THC brothers already mentioned, delta-10 can only be synthesized by way of a chemical catalyst, in this case, flame retardant chemicals. Other, safer catalysts, have been used since that time.

Unlike delta-8 and delta-9 which are naturally occurring, and therefore capable of falling under the definition of hemp, delta-10 does not. As such, it remains regulated under DEA criminal code 7370 which lists anything not under the definition of hemp, to be a controlled substance. This goes for all synthetic THC compounds. Whereas the Farm Bill allows hemp derivatives with up to .3% THC, it does not cover synthetics at all, and this means that regardless of the THC quantity in the product, or where the product is sourced from, it’s still illegal.

In that way, delta-10 does not fit into a legal loophole, and remains a schedule I controlled substance for now. Of course, lots of cannabis products fit under this definition federally, but with the growing number of locations in the US and worldwide that have approved legal medical or recreational cannabis programs, the use of delta-10 is perfectly fine in many places. Plus, with such constant changes, and an inability to catch up legislatively, it’s quite possible that being federally illegal won’t stop the growing delta-10 market at all.

How to test delta-8 and delta-10 products

It should be clear from everything just written, that these two compounds are highly unregulated, with confusion about the legal loophole of one, and even more confusion online about the illegality of the other. With no government standard for the production of these products, or standards for final products, users are at the mercy of sellers and their claims, which can often be a dicey prospect.

In fact, without regulation, when dealing with extracts of these kinds, it’s hard for the buyer to know they’re getting the right product at all. Think about how easy it is to buy a vape cartridge without really knowing what’s inside? Sales industries – especially unregulated ones – are not generally known for their complete upstandingness, often passing off fake or low-quality products since, in the most essential way of putting it, no one is legally watching.

And this is where ACS Laboratory comes in. In an effort to institute some sort of testing ability to confirm that these substances are really these substances, ACS created the Potency 12 test to identify delta-8 and delta-10 products. ACS is a DEA-licensed, 3rd party, independent testing facility that provides analysis for products in the cannabis industry.

With the invention of Potency 12, ACS now provides an answer above general industry standards, which haven’t caught up to these new products yet. The Potency 12 test “specifically targets and separates Delta-8, Delta-9, and Delta-10 THC”, according to ACS Laboratory’s principal scientist, Aixia Sun, who also serves as a certified lab director for cannabis. She went on to say, “Many labs cannot test Delta-10 without a DEA license and often misidentify lesser-known analytes as Delta-9 in the process.”

In answer to the question of what creates this difficulty in testing, Sun continued, “The problem is Delta-9 and Delta-8 THC are positional isomers, making it difficult for laboratories to separate the two during testing. Two Delta-10 THC stereoisomers are also challenges because they are so elusive that laboratories often misidentify them for CBC or CBL using the industry-standard methodology.”

ACS isn’t just looking for ways to identify these compounds, it also looks to ensure certain levels of safety. One of the things it continues to do, is develop new and improved safety tests to make sure extracts don’t contain residual solvents in them. The Potency 12 test is actually an offshoot of the standard Potency 11 test, which is already capable of quantifying the total of 12 different cannabinoids: Delta-8, Delta-9, Delta-10, THCA, THCV, CBDA, CBD, CBDV, CBGA, CBG, CBN, and CBC, in products.

delta-10 THC

According to ACS Laboratory president and founder, Roger Brown: “As the hemp industry evolves, laboratories must continuously re-evaluate methods to ensure they are producing valid results… Laboratories who fail to rise to the occasion will ultimately put their clients at risk.”

Conclusion

When it comes to new products in an unregulated market, it can really be a free-for-all, with anyone capable of putting out a halfway decent product (or half-way decent looking product), edging in, with little regard as to what they’re passing off to customers.

This makes it great to have some way to test delta-8 and delta-10 products to separate good from bad (or better from worse). ACS Laboratory and the Potency 12 test inject a little more clarity as to the quality of products on the market, how many fakes are flying around, and where to find the best products. It’s nice to know that if you’re being sold a delta-8 or delta-10 THC product, that its authenticity can now be verified.

The Legality of Delta-10 THC – Where It Stands

The internet is abuzz with talk of the newest THC to hit the market, delta-10, but unlike it’s more well-known THC alternative delta-8, the recent DEA Interim Final Rule and USDA final rule, have done nothing to increase the legality of delta-10.

The family of THC is growing, with newer version delta-8 THC becoming a rather big deal recently. Why? Because unlike delta-9 THC, it produces less psychoactive effect, and a more clear-headed experience. In fact, we’ve got some great delta-8 THC deals for you to try it out yourself.

When it comes to the legality of cannabis, and compounds like delta-8 and delta-10 THC, things can get confusing. While it seems there is much misunderstanding on the differences between the newest members of the THC family to make it to the public – delta-8 THC and delta-10 THC – there is one fundamental difference between the two which effects legality, and puts delta-10 in a different category.

Delta-8 THC does fall into the industrial hemp loophole according to some – though this is technically STILL up for debate, but delta-10 actually does not, and does indeed remain federally illegal. And it’s not unclear legislatively. Let’s take a look at why.

2018 US Farm Bill

First, let’s take a look at the legislation that brought delta-8 THC into the spotlight. Delta-8 THC is a naturally occurring, oxidized version of delta-9 THC, the standard THC of marijuana. What this means is that when delta-9 comes into contact with oxygen, small amounts (and we’re talking extremely small amounts), lose electrons, to form a slightly different, and more stable compound, delta-8 THC.

delta-10 vape

The delta number – 8 or 9 – refers to where the double carbon bond occurs on the chain, with it falling on the 8th atom for delta-8, and the 9th for delta-9. The most important takeaway so far? It occurs naturally on its own, and does not need to be made in a lab.

The 2018 US Farm Bill legalized the production of hemp products so long as the THC content is no more than .3%. As per the law, the definition of hemp is “the plant Cannabis Sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.”

Since delta-8 THC can be sourced from any delta-9 THC, whether it comes from high-THC marijuana, or low-THC hemp, it is legal according to the definition of hemp, landing it squarely in the industrial hemp loophole. Is it naturally occurring the way we use it? No, it’s not. Since the amount naturally produced by oxidation of delta-9 THC is miniscule, it does have to be produced through a processing method that involves human help. For this reason, some people stand on the side that delta-8 is synthetic, and that changes things a bit.

What is delta-10, and how is it different?

Though the name ‘delta-10’ is only becoming familiar to the public now, it was first discovered back in 1980, and this was done accidentally. It was found in California as a result of something completely unrelated – forest fires. The company Fusion Farms was in the business of making concentrates at the time, and its outdoor flower supply got contaminated by the flame retardant chemicals that were being used to avoid or subdue these fires. This all happened unbeknownst to the company workers who continued the process of producing the extracts.

What they found during this process, were unfamiliar crystals. The end result of the study of these new crystals, was that they were a new form of THC that had been synthesized, this time with the double bond on the 10th carbon atom.

What does this mean about delta-10? It means it’s chemically a derivative of delta-9 THC, but unlike both delta-9 and delta-8 THCs, it cannot occur on its own making it a purely synthetic cannabinoid. In this case, the synthetization process occurred by way of exposure to a catalyst, which was flame retardant chemicals.

As far as the effects of delta-10, it’s hard to say. Plenty of research has been done into delta-9, and there is a growing body of research being done on delta-8. But delta-10 hasn’t reached that point, so little can be said about exactly what to expect. The general thought is that it will hold the same basic qualities of its counterparts delta-8 and delta-9 – which themselves are very similar, but specifics really cannot be stated.

In terms of personal experiences, those are, indeed, difficult to find as well. In order to experience a product, it has to be available. In a new market, it can take time for word to spread, and for products to go out, be used, and for reviews and testimonies to make it to the internet. Right now, with the exception of scattered, not-very-specific mentions, there isn’t much to go on yet.

As time goes on, there will surely be a bigger supply of online usage information, but right now, products have not been circulating widely enough for this to happen. There is an issue that could effect how quickly it can be circulated though, as there is a legality issue with delta-10 THC, though this is not necessarily a deal-breaker in the end.

Legalities – how delta-10 and delta-8 are different

One of the most important things to understand about the 2018 Farm Bill, is that it doesn’t cover synthetics. It just doesn’t. It’s super fantastic that it says that products can be made from hemp derivatives so long as the THC content is not more than .3%, but this only accounts for natural derivatives. According to the DEA Interim Final Rule, the definition of hemp is not changed, and the recently released USDA Final Rule, does nothing further to change definitions either. As such, right now legally,

“The [2018 Farm Bill] does not impact the control status of synthetically derived tetrahydrocannabinols (for Controlled Substance Code Number 7370) because the statutory definition of “hemp” is limited to materials that are derived from the plant Cannabis sativa L. For synthetically derived tetrahydrocannabinols, the concentration of D9 -THC is not a determining factor in whether the material is a controlled substance. All synthetically derived tetrahydrocannabinols remain schedule I controlled substances.”

The actual definitions of ‘tetrahydrocannabinols’, are materials “…naturally contained in a plant of the genus Cannabis (cannabis plant), as well as synthetic equivalents of the substances contained in the cannabis plant, or in the resinous extractives of such plant, and/or synthetic substances, derivatives, and their isomers with similar chemical structure and pharmacological activity to those substances contained in the plant…”

legality delta-10

This definition puts synthetics and non-synthetics together. And if you’ll remember, the definition of hemp, is for compounds directly sourced from the hemp plant. As the definition of hemp does not cover synthetics, all cannabis synthetics remain illegal federally as per the previously stated law.

As an only synthetically-derived cannabinoid, this squarely answers the question of the legality of delta-10 THC, making it strictly federally illegal. Why does this not entirely apply to delta-8 THC? Because delta-8 THC is naturally occurring. The current USDA ruling did nothing to clarify the legal loophole of delta-8, with some still saying because its naturally occurring, it’s legal, and others pointing to the processing necessary to create it, making it synthetic.

Right now, delta-8 remains gray area, but unless the definition of hemp changes to include synthetics, the legality of delta-10 is not as gray, and the compound doesn’t make it into the industrial hemp loophole.

The Legality Of Delta-10 THC – Conclusion

There you have it… delta-8 is still gray area depending on whether it gets defined as a synthetic or not. On the other hand, the legality of Delta-10, as a purely synthetic cannabinoid, is different, and the compound remains illegal on a federal level. Luckily, with a growing number of legalized locations throughout the US and the rest of the world, there are still plenty of markets that can legally sell this option. And since laws are still forming and kinks in this industry have a long way to being worked out (as evidenced by the new USDA ruling which does nothing to clarify delta-8 further), there should be plenty of ways to obtain this newer version of THC, for anyone who wants it.

Biggest US Drug Loopholes: Delta-8 THC and Magic Mushrooms

Every country has its own set of drug laws, and nearly every set of drug laws comes with some sort of loophole. This is true for the good ole US of A as well. In fact, there are some very interesting US drug loopholes, namely delta-8 THC, and magic mushrooms.

What’s better than good old-fashioned US drug loopholes? Not much! Luckily, with current legislation still in gray area, delta-8 THC is available to the masses. And this is great. Not only does it give alternate benefits to standard delta-9 THC – like less psychoactive effect and a more clear-headed highbut it also causes less anxiety for users. Delta-9 is still federally illegal, but delta-8 is not completely, and that means we can bring you the best delta-8 THC deals, so you can give it a go for yourself.

What is a legal loophole?

A basic definition for a loophole is “…a technicality that allows a person or business to avoid the scope of a law or restriction without directly violating the law.” In other words, laws do exist, but either the laws don’t cover everything, aren’t specific enough, or exist alongside contradictory laws that call into question general legality. No matter what the exact reason is that the initial law doesn’t hold, a loophole demonstrates the ability to get around it. Before getting to US drug loopholes, let’s take a look at non-drug loopholes. Here are a couple examples of existing/recently-closed loopholes in America, to give an idea of how loopholes actually work.

• The legal drinking age in the US is 21, right? Well, in Wisconsin, this can be gotten around. According to Wisconsin state law, a parent is allowed to give a child an alcoholic beverage, so long as the parent has a proper ID. This drink can be administered not only in a private residence, but in a bar or restaurant as well. The parent must order the drink first, and be served it, before passing it onto their child. This law exists under Chapter 125 of the Wisconsin Statutes, in the department of revenue, and states: “An underage person accompanied by a parent, guardian, or spouse of legal drinking age may be sold or served alcohol beverages in any licensed premises.” There are questions as to whether this could apply to a child between 18-21, as the parent is not technically a legal guardian anymore.

• Murder is illegal, right? Well, according to a loophole in Colorado, this isn’t always the case. Colorado’s Make My Day law actually states that “any occupant of a dwelling is justified in using any degree of physical force, including deadly physical force, against another person when that other person has made an unlawful entry into the dwelling….”. This isn’t terribly different than self-defense laws that exist almost anywhere, but Colorado’s law was used in court by inmates claiming their cell was their home, and that they had a right to murder to defend it.

US drug loopholes

In 2011, Antero Alaniz and Aaron Bernal killed 3rd inmate Cleveland Flood in the Sterling Correctional Facility, when Flood entered the cell of the other two prisoners. Alaniz and Bernal successfully used the Make My Day law as their defense to have the charges thrown out in 2014, by saying the cell was their home and they had a right to defend it. In April 2016, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper signed an update to the legislation that bars it from being used further in the prison system, effectively closing the loophole.

US drug loopholes: delta-8 THC

There are plenty of US drug loopholes, but two of the most interesting ones relate to schedule I substances. The first is delta-8 THC, although how effective the loophole is, is certainly questionable. According to DEA Criminal Code 7370, all tetrahydrocannabinols are illegal, expect those that fall under the definition of ‘hemp’. The definition of hemp includes the flower itself, and products made from it:

“…the plant Cannabis Sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.”

This definition does not include any synthetics, only naturally occurring derivatives of hemp. Delta-8 THC is a naturally occurring derivative of delta-9, formed through the oxidation of delta-9 when it comes into contact with oxygen. This process produces only minute amounts of delta-8 however, and in order for people to use it as a product, the delta-8 must be sourced using human processing help. As there is not a clear answer as to what constitutes a synthetic – and if human processing help puts it in this category, delta-8 falls into legal gray area about this definitional point. An Interim Final Rule put out by the DEA, and reinforced by the recent USDA Final Rule on hemp, does nothing to clarify this point.

This isn’t the only factor that effects delta-8 THC legality though. The 2018 US Farm Bill, which legalized the cultivation of hemp, and production of hemp-based products, and which uses the aforementioned definition of hemp, stipulates that it must be sourced from plants with not more than .3% THC in order to qualify as hemp. This would indicate the ability to source any amount of delta-8, so long as the delta-9 being used, came from hemp.

However, specifications to this law have pointed out that not only does the hemp plant need to have .3% THC or less, but it must retain this standard through the entirety of processing, as well as for the final product. Does this mean delta-8 is actually illegal? No. But it does make some rather stiff requirements for how strong a delta-8 product can be, essentially stating that the finished product also can’t have more than .3% THC. As the definition of hemp includes derivatives, and delta-8 is a derivative of delta-9, it does not get around this point.

US drug loopholes: magic mushrooms

The second of the US drug loopholes has to do with mushrooms. Magic mushrooms are psychedelic fungi that can grow in the wild or be cultivated. Mushrooms that fit into this grouping contain psychoactive compounds like psilocybin and psilocin. These compounds are serotonergic hallucinogenic compounds, meaning they effect serotonin receptors in the brain, and are known for altering perception, mood, reality, and time for the user, while promoting feelings of euphoria, overall well-being, spirituality, and connectedness between people.

This loophole exists globally because of two opposing factors. The first is the inclusion of psilocybin, psilocin, and derivatives found in magic mushroom plants, in the Schedule I of the UN’s Convention on Psychotropic substances, an international treaty that denotes the legality of certain psychoactive drugs worldwide.

However, the plants themselves are not under any scheduling treaty globally. This means, that though there are laws outlawing what’s in the plants, there is no law against the plants themselves. This was emphasized in 2001, when the independent organization monitoring the implementation of UN drug treaties, the International Narcotics Control Board, made a statement to the Dutch ministry of health, in answer to a question about mushroom legality. It states:

“As a matter of international law, no plants (natural material) containing psilocine and psilocybin are at present controlled under the Convention on Psychotropic Substances of 1971. Consequently, preparations made of these plants are not under international control and, therefore, not subject of the articles of the 1971 Convention.”

As can be seen in the answer, it is not simply the mushrooms themselves that are not under any global UN control, but nor are the preparations made from them, which would put this in direct contrast to the illegality of the active components. However, this is an international treaty, and not US law. When it comes to US law, the Controlled Substances Act from 1970, and the Psychotropic Substances Act of 1978 outlaw: “any material, compound, mixture, or preparation, substances which contains any quantity of the following hallucinogenic substances, or which contains any of their salts, isomers, and salts of isomers whenever the existence of such salts, isomers, and salts of isomers is possible within the specific chemical designation”, with both psilocybin and psilocyn mentioned.

Depending on whether the terms ‘material’ and ‘substance’ account for plants, this definition does seem to illegalize magic mushrooms…albeit, with room for debate since the mushrooms themselves are still not mentioned.

magic mushrooms loophole

Notwithstanding states that have legalized (Oregon), or locations that have decriminalized (Denver) mushrooms, does this make magic mushrooms entirely federally illegal? No, it doesn’t. Though the US goes further than some countries which leave a wider loophole, the US does allow for certain things. And the biggest one, is the sale of magic mushroom spores. In fact most – but not all – states allow spores to be sold so long as the intention is not to ingest them. This, of course, is as silly as outlawing all cannabis, and then allowing hemp to be grown.

The reason for this, is that the spores themselves don’t contain psychedelic compounds, making them exempt from federal law. Technically, they aren’t meant to grow or be consumed, but the law allows them to be bought and sold, making the ability to grow and consume them, very possible in the USA. Another thing to consider, related to a Florida Supreme Court case from 1970, is that, if a person is arrested for mushrooms, but doesn’t know they are magic mushrooms (or can make a court believe this), they will likely not be held responsible for what they are not expected to realistically know.

It probably also bears mentioning, that the US’s FDA made the designation of psilocybin as a breakthrough therapy for major depression in 2019, a term meant to expedite the testing and development of medications. Funny for a government agency to work to speed along medications for a schedule I compound. Says a lot for how magic mushrooms are actually viewed by the US government.

Conclusion

The whole idea of a loophole, is that it’s not exactly legal, it’s just not 100% illegal either. I also include circumstances where there is illegality, but it doesn’t mitigate access. As one of the biggest current US drug loopholes, there is a mess of confusion currently around delta-8 THC, and though it seems more and more like the loophole available, doesn’t really cover everything, it’s also not officially illegal either.

For magic mushrooms, once again, the mushrooms aren’t stated as anything more than a ‘material’ or ‘substance’, which might make it arguable in court. But more importantly, their spores are completely legal in most US locations, making the availability and ability to grow them, not only possible, but pretty freaking easy!

Before It Even Took Off, Some States Already Want to Ban Delta 10 THC

Whenever a new cannabis trend emerges, we tend to get the same reactions every time: excitement from consumers and industry stakeholders, followed by a wave of legislation trying to regulate or prohibit the new product. Typically, by the time a product gets on the radar of the general public, it’s already on its way to becoming illegal.

Why ban the new Delta 10 THC? It happened with many cannabinoids and products already, most recently, Delta 8 THC. Despite the fact that it falls under a legislative loophole that makes it federally legal, technically; many states have completely outlawed its production and sale. And you might be inclined to assume that it’s only the most restrictive states taking these steps, but then you would be completely wrong. For example, some legal states including Colorado and Arizona don’t allow the possession or distribution of any products containing Delta 8 THC.

But we’re not here to talk about D8, today we’re discussing how this same exact dilemma is unfolding in the small but fast-growing Delta 10 THC market – which states are trying to ban this new cannabinoid?

What is Delta 10 THC?

Following in the footsteps of many cannabis trends prior, Delta 10 THC was first noted in California, although in this case, the discovery was purely accidental. It all began when an Adelanto-based company called Fusion Farms bought some outdoor flower to manufacture concentrates. Because of the wildfire-prone climate in California, the biomass they purchased had been sprayed with fire retardant, although Fusion Farms believed the flower they were getting was pure.

Being unaware of the contamination, they continued with the extraction as planned but some unusual crystals began to form after the distillation process. These crystals had a completely different structure than previously observed cannabinoid crystals. After conducting some laboratory tests, it was determined that these crystals were most similar to CBC (cannabichromene), but still not an exact match. For several months, they continued testing this structure against all the known cannabinoids and no match was found.

Eventually, they found out that it was yet another variation of tetrahydrocannabinol, formed because of plant exposure to those fire retardants – dubbed Delta 10 THC. So basically, D10 is an artificial cannabinoid, formed by converting D9 or other cannabinoids using some type of chemical catalyst. In this case, it was fire retardant, but obviously that’s not something people want in their cannabis products, so companies are looking at various – greener – methods of creating Delta 10 THC.

In chemistry, “Delta” refers to the double bond in a compound’s molecular structure. Delta compounds have more electrons and interact with the body in different ways than single bond cannabinoids do. The variation between the Delta THC analogues comes down to where the double bond is located on their chain of carbon atoms. Delta 8 has this bond on the 8th carbon chain, Delta 9 on the 9th chain, and Delta 10 THC has the double bond on the 10th carbon chain. Although it seems miniscule, it makes a substantial difference.

Is it federally legal?

Although all tetrahydrocannabinols are supposed to be on the FDA’s list of Schedule 1 narcotics, some of them remain permissible on technicalities. In short, if the THC (regardless of which Delta) was extracted from legal hemp, or chemically converted from CBD or another legal cannabinoid, then the THC itself is LEGAL.  

Since everything regarding Delta 10 THC specifically is a bit new, let’s once more take a look at Delta 8 for reference. Last year there was some controversy and confusion about whether Delta 8 would be added to the DEA’s list of controlled substances. Many in the industry believed it would be prohibited under the DEA’s Interim Final Ruling over “synthetically-derived” cannabinoids but, fortunately, this turned out not to be the case.

Although a few changes were made, the final result was this: if the end Delta 8 product is derived from hemp and has less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC, then it’s legal. The DEA does include Delta 8 THC on its list of controlled substances which was just updated in August 2020. But since the 2018 Farm Bill expressly exempts “tetrahydrocannabinols in hemp”, this means that any form of THC derived from hemp that falls within the already established limits will remain legal.

So yes, Delta 10 THC is federally legal… however, states can override federal laws if they choose to. It happens all the time with industries like alcohol, tobacco, and gambling. So, while Delta 10 may be federally legal, some states governments are already taking steps to ban the new THC.

What states are working on bans?

The Alabama Senate Judiciary Committee recently approved a measure that would prohibit Delta 8 THC and Delta 10 THC, along with Delta 9 which is already illegal. The original intent of this bill was to regulate a new synthetic opioid, Tianeptine, by adding it to the state’s controlled substances list. The bill was amended by Republican Senator Arthur Orr who added the sections about THC at the very last minute.

The Alabama Cannabis Industry Association starkly criticized the proposal in a blog post: “It’s premature to outlaw these potentially beneficial treatments for very serious conditions until research has been done. What we do know is that there have been no deaths attributed to delta-8-thc and cannabis is generally safer than even some over-the-counter medications. The Alabama Senate has the opportunity to regulate delta-8-thc and delta-10-thc in The Compassion Act so it is controlled but still accessible to people who will benefit from it in reducing suffering and improve quality of life.”

In North Dakota, not only did the Senate quickly shut down a bill that proposed legalizing cannabis, but a new bill that would outright ban the manufacture, sale and possession of ALL tetrahydrocannabinols (specifically Delta 8, 9, and 10) is quickly gaining traction. The governor has 10 days to sign the bill which would then go into effect immediately. If it passes (and it’s expected to), anyone found buying or selling products containing any type of THC could face criminal charges.

Final thoughts – Delta 10 ban

It’s hard to say what exactly will happen with Delta 10 THC on a national scale. So far, these are the only two states that I’ve heard of that are actively trying to ban Delta 10. It seems like a lot of wasted time and effort, considering anything with Delta 10 THC is difficult to find as it is, and all cannabis products will inevitably become legal in the very near future anyway (or at least we hope).

For now, the best thing you can do is stay up to date on your local news and laws, and make sure to stock up on your favorite products if you start hearing talk of new legislation.

Sparing 420, Vape Ban Goes Into Full Effect 4/27

Out of all the major couriers, United States Postal Service had the latest cutoff date before the looming vape ban goes into effect. But here we are, the time has finally come and we’re now just shy of a week before we can no longer order vape products with the same ease and low prices that we’ve grown accustomed to.

At least they let us have 420, right? Already, Fedex, UPS, and a few other delivery services have began regulating the shipment of vape products under the new PACT Act, and the USPS is set to join them in about 1 week. As part of the amended PACT (Prevent All Human Trafficking) Act, the deliver of “ENDS” products directly to consumers will be prohibited or very strictly regulated.

The term ENDS stands for Electronic Delivery Nicotine Systems, but the term is used loosely to include “any electronic device that, through an aerosolized solution, delivers nicotine, flavor, or any other substance to the user inhaling from the device,” including “an e-cigarette; an e-hookah; an e-cigar; a vape pen; an advanced refillable personal vaporizer; an electronic pipe; and any component, liquid, part, or accessory of a device described [above], without regard to whether the component, liquid, part, or accessory is sold separately from the device.”

420 Deals – Best Delta 8 Products To Shop For Now!

USPS was last to follow suit, but come April 27th, they will be amending their regulations as well. If a courier decides to continue shipping vape products, they will be required to pay extra fees as well as checking ID and getting signatures at the time of delivery. It’s a very costly waste of time, so most companies are choosing to avoid dealing with these products altogether.

With no major carriers willing to move vape products, businesses are now stuck navigating both the new PACT Act requirements and finding a new way to ship their products.

The Vape Ban Explained

This vape ban is not a ban in the true sense of the word. It’s a ban on the shipping of vape products, not on the actual use, production, or sale of them. And because cannabis vape products fall under the general term of ‘tobacco products’, it doesn’t actually specify anything about cannabis, if we’re choosing to get technical here.

The ban is for “tobacco” vaping products being shipped through UPS, FEDEX, USPS, and other major couriers. This does not mean companies cannot sell products, or ship them through the mail through a small private company, but it does mean they will need to scramble a bit and figure out what they will do before

In a way, it’s a ban that isn’t technically a ban, as there is no ban on any company or individual. This means the US government is not trying to legally stop people from using these products, or companies from making them, but it does seem to be trying to determine how the public can get products, and what products will be available to them. Overregulation for the sake of overregulation.

Final Thoughts

It’ll be rocky at the beginning, companies finding ways to get their products to consumers, and consumers trying to figure out the fastest and most affordable way to get what they need. For now, your best bet is to stock up and take advantage of all the 420 deals before the vape ban goes into effect. If you have a good amount of Delta 8 vape carts in your stash, that should buy you enough time until your favorite companies find a new way to ship your favorite products. Thanks to the unwavering adaptability of the cannabis industry, that shouldn’t take very long to do.

Mexico’s Magic Mushroom Tourism Industry

The term ‘cannabis tourism’ denotes a well-known concept. People travel to destinations where they can specifically take part in cannabis consumption activities. Cannabis is not the only drug that drives tourism though, as Mexico’s burgeoning magic mushroom tourism industry implies. Yes, Mexico is known for cartels and tequila, mariachi and sombreros. And now magic mushrooms too. Psychedelic tourism is definitely on the rise.

Of all the psychedelics, THC is still the most popular one. For THC users who have a problem with the anxiety or experience paranoia, the alternate delta-8 THC might be preferable. If you think you could benefit from this altered version of THC, take a look at our awesome delta-8 THC deals, and try it out for yourself.

Maria Sabina and Oaxaca mushrooms

Different parts of Mexico are known for different things. Like the town of Tequila, which is the actual birthplace of one of the most popular liquors throughout the world. As it happens, the state of Oaxaca, Mexico is known for its very own thing, as the main point of Mexico’s magic mushroom tourism industry. The Oaxaca highlands area, like San Jose del Pacifico, is specifically known for magic mushrooms and the related tourism, particularly between July and October.

Travelers come to Oaxaca for mushrooms, both from within Mexico, and from all over the world. Magic mushrooms were first discovered in Mexico by Spanish friars, during the time that Mexico was being colonized. Oaxaca mushrooms (or ‘hongos’ in Spanish) were brought into prominence in this area by witch doctor – or Mazatec curandera – Maria Sabina, who used them in her work.

She worked with many rich and powerful people who wanted the benefits of the mushrooms. She became well-known to the public in 1955 when the article ‘Seeking the Magic Mushroom’ written by R Gordon Wasson, the vice-president of JP Morgan, was published. It was this semi-stardom that made her, and her mushrooms, known to Timothy Leary, the Harvard psychologist who went on to become a leading advocate for psychedelics.

Mexican magic mushrooms

Timothy Leary wasn’t the only well-known name to have been inspired by Maria Sabina. In the 1960’s – the era of the hippie, psychedelics were rather big for both individual use, and in celebrity culture. That general area of Oaxaca was visited in this decade by members of the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Jim Morrison of the Doors, and Bob Dylan, all to take psychedelic mushrooms.

These mushrooms are a big part of local Zapotec culture, and are used for religious and traditional purposes. Law enforcement tends to ignore these uses by indigenous cultures, even though the mushrooms are illegal. In the Zapotec culture, children as young as six-years-old can consume mushrooms as part of their rituals. In fact, the current influx of tourists has done much to disrupt local culture in the area, and has worked to drive a large magic mushroom scam market as well.

Mexico’s magic mushroom tourism industry has brought so many people to Oaxaca, and places like San Jose del Pacifico, and Huautla de Jimenez, where Maria Sabina used to operate from, that tourists getting off the buses in some of these areas can expect to be met by children, waiting to take them to where they can find mushrooms.

What are magic mushrooms? And what are psychedelics?

Magic mushrooms are a grouping of fungi that can grow wild, or be cultivated. Mushrooms with this designation contain psilocybin as a primary psychoactive compound, though many mushrooms contain other psychoactive compounds as well, like Psilocin. Examples of mushrooms in this category include: Psilocybe (the most well-known), Panaeolus, and Conocybe. Mushrooms are often purchased dried out, but can be consumed raw as well. Mushroom trips generally last around six hours.

Both psilocybin and psilocin are hallucinogenic compounds that are both serotonergic, or acting on serotonin receptors in the brain. Magic mushrooms are known for promoting feelings of euphoria, altered mood and perception, distortion in time and reality, heightened feelings of connection between people, intensified feelings of spirituality, and an increased level of introspection.

Psychedelics, the class of drugs that psilocybin and psilocin are known as, is a subset of hallucinogenic drugs, which itself is a subset of psychoactive drugs. Psychedelics are known generally for causing the kinds of effects experienced through magic mushrooms, with altered perception, cognition, and mood, euphoria, spirituality, connectedness, and the rest. Very infrequently are psychedelics associated with unwanted effects and bad trips if dosing is done correctly, but negative effects like increased heart rate, anxiety, sweating, and nausea, are possible.

Recently there has been a renewed interest in psychedelic testing. This is a general continuation of what was started in the mid 1900’s with LSD and psychedelic-assisted therapy, in which the patient is given a psychedelic drug, and then guided through the experience by a professional, who can help the patient use the drug to mentally work out their issues.

Legality of magic mushrooms

Mushrooms are interesting because they fall into a legal loophole in many places of the world. The magic mushroom loophole goes like this: the active psychedelic compounds found in mushrooms, like psilocybin and psilocin, are schedule I drugs according to the Convention on Psychotropic Substances, a UN international drug scheduling treaty meant to police the use, production, and sale of different substances throughout the world. Many countries, like the US, also have drug scheduling laws of their own, and many put these compounds in schedule I of local legislation.

What creates the loophole with magic mushrooms, is that the mushrooms themselves are perfectly legal, and under no global treaty regulation. Under international law, its legal to have the mushrooms, but the compounds inside are illegal. Plus, many places (like Mexico) make designations about how the mushroom is grown, to determine legality.

It’s just like the industrial hemp loophole, which allows industrial hemp to be grown in places where cannabis consumption is illegal, thereby giving residents a way to consume hemp outside of the law. This same loophole also covers products like delta-8 THC, which can be sourced from the *legal THC in hemp plants, thereby creating a compound that is technically illegal according to what it is, but produced completely legally, and not actually mentioned by name in the law.

Putting these drugs in schedule I of drug legislation implies that the compounds are dangerous, addictive, and with no medical benefit. A line like this starts to sound sillier and sillier as it keeps being applied to substances that are so clearly not in that category. And it brings up the question of how we’re supposed to be protected by such laws, and the people who put them in place.

In 2001, this loophole was made all the more clear on a global level, when the (INCB) International Narcotics Control Board (the independent organization that monitors how UN international drug treaties are implemented) secretary of the board, Herbert Schaepe, made the following statement in answer to a question by the Dutch Ministry of Health:

“As a matter of international law, no plants (natural material) containing psilocine and psilocybin are at present controlled under the Convention on Psychotropic Substances of 1971. Consequently, preparations made of these plants are not under international control and, therefore, not subject of the articles of the 1971 Convention.”

Is Mexico’s magic mushroom tourism industry illegal?

Magic Mushrooms Mexico

When it comes to Mexico, the 1984 Ley General de Salud outlaws both psilocybin and psilocin, and even goes farther than the US, specifically mentioning psilocybin-containing fungi as a whole, to be illegal. The law even calls out a few specific species like: Psilocybe Mexicana, and Psilocybe cubensis. Native cultures using mushrooms are not held to enforcement of this law, and wild-growing mushrooms are actually legal!

What is very strange, is that when Mexico signed an amendment to the General Law on Health and the Federal Penal Code in 2009, that both LSD and MDMA were included in the list of drugs that were decriminalized, but magic mushrooms and their compounds, were not. This could, perhaps, be related to the ability for self-cultivation with mushrooms. The idea of decriminalized mushrooms might be a little scarier to big business. After all, once it becomes like cannabis, where personal-cultivation is a regular thing, it will be harder for biotech and pharmaceutical companies to control the industry.

And how likely is a pharmaceutical industry for magic mushrooms? Considering they are already used in tons of places, and that the US’s FDA named magic mushrooms as a ‘breakthrough therapy’ for major depression in 2009, it looks like there certainly will be.

According to the FDA, this “designation is for a drug that treats a serious or life-threatening condition and preliminary clinical evidence indicates that the drug may demonstrate substantial improvement on a clinically significant endpoint(s) over available therapies.” This is literally meant to quicken the development of products. If the FDA is pushing this hard for magic mushroom products, it’s a good bet there’s an industry waiting to erupt, and a full legalization might not happen until that time.

Experience Mexico’s magic mushroom tourism industry

If you’re looking to take advantage of Mexico’s magic mushroom tourism, you’ll probably want to head to San Jose Del Pacifico, which is a three hour drive from Oaxaca city, and about 3.5 hours from the Pacific coast. If you simply make it there, you probably won’t have to look too hard, since, as mentioned, the area caters to this tourism. In fact, it’s quite possible that the attendant at your hostel or hotel might ask you if you’re interested. One mushroom trip should cost about $200-250 pesos, but this could vary between locations.

Of course, if you’d rather find them yourself, you can do that too. Just be wary since picking the wrong mushroom could mean a pretty nasty death. If you want to pick them yourself, head to that region between July and October, which is the rainy season. Heading between June and August will likely net the best results.

For those who like things more planned out, there are plenty of magic mushroom retreats like this Buena Vida psilocybin retreat, where participants can take part in a controlled ritual ceremony. Retreats can be found all over the country, as Oaxaca, often considered the capital for magic mushrooms, is not the only location for tourism. Retreats exist in the Mayan Jungle, through Bluaya. Or Life Synergy Retreat which offers retreats in Playa del Carmen, and Tulipanes.

Conclusion

The general illegality of the compounds within magic mushrooms, and the mushrooms themselves, make the legality of magic mushroom tourism questionable in Mexico. However, it seems to be acceptable for ceremonial use, and when found in the wild. The latter is very important here, because it means if the mushrooms are not being officially cultivated – by you or a company – they’re actually perfectly legal.

In that sense, anyone can legally walk into the woods at any time, and legally pick and use magic mushrooms. Any retreat that incorporates these aspects of the law, can operate perfectly legally. As the general world of psychedelic tourism grows, Mexico is sure to see even more people come through, to trip on its mushrooms.

The vape ban

A quick recap of why this is happening at all. In December, former president Donald Trump signed off on The Omnibus Appropriations and Coronavirus Relief Package bill, a piece of sprawling omnibus legislation which involves tons of unattached provisions for things completely unrelated to the corona pandemic. Like the Preventing Online Sales of E-Cigarettes to Children Act, which was wedged into this bill. What does this act do? It institutes a high level of regulation to the tobacco vaping industry, ending all mail shipments by USPS, as well as FedEx, UPS, and DHL which all agreed to participate.

Technically, no private carrier is banned from carrying products, but if the regulatory process is too costly, and a carrier cannot afford it, they won’t be able to provide this service. How USPS will go about things has not been released, but it is possible the government mail agency will carry vape products after strict guidelines can be uniformly implemented. USPS will give a final rule about how it will conduct itself in the future by the end of the month.

This is not an actual ban, however. The use, production, and sale of these products was in no way outlawed, but, in order to send them through the mail, any company must submit to a high – overbearing – amount of regulation, which is untenable for many product and shipping companies. In order for a company to send products through the mail, it must use a private delivery service that collects a signature at the point-of-receipt by an adult, as well as check about a million other boxes including registering with the attorney general, ATF, and all tax-collecting agencies in every place of business, walking all packages in by foot, using correct tax stamps, applying sales and excise taxes, and collecting information on customers to report to the government, among other things.

To be fair, it’s not all that weird for the government to regulate an industry. However, there are privacy protections that are in place to ensure no overstepping is done, like the 1974 Privacy Act laid out by the Department of Justice, which USPS functions off of, according to their own site. While there are 12 exceptions to this privacy rule, it is highly debatable that the reasoning for this mail ban requires such a privacy break. This mail ban may very well end in court, or need to be changed and downgraded from where it is now.

It is, perhaps, the extreme level of regulation that seems off in the end, as if vape juice was deadly material. It should be remembered that some of the specifications of business owners is to collect and report on the products being purchased by consumers and in what quantity. And this along with customer ages, and other personal information. Some might say that these mail restrictions are posing a danger to personal privacy, while offering no actual protection for anything.

If you’re now wondering what this has to do with cannabis products, the answer is that due to the 2008 Federal Law for Control of Tobacco Products bill, cannabis products are lumped right in with tobacco products, so this ban also hurts the transport of all cannabis vape products. CBD products and newer inventions like delta-8 THC, are expected to be hit very hard by this new institution of regulation.

Why is this happening?

According to the government, its to protect children. Of course, to anyone paying attention, who can see through a smear campaign, this logic is flawed at best, and dangerously backwards at worst. So far, according to the CDC, there have, in America, been 68 confirmed deaths related to vapes since the inception of vaping in the early 2000’s up until February 2020. There have also been 2,807 hospitalizations in that time. For the most part, deaths and hospitalizations aren’t even related to tobacco or cannabis products (or herbal healing or vitamin products that can also be vaped). Damage seems to be caused by additives like vitamin E acetate.

On the other hand, 480,000+ people die from smoking every year, including 41,000 that die of second-hand smoke. Ever heard of someone dying from secondhand vaping? Didn’t think so! Since no anti-smoking campaign ended smoking, and every year, tens of thousands of people start smoking habits, it seems that in order to protect people, pushing them toward vaping is the solidly safer idea.

68 deaths over approximately 15 years vs 480,000+ deaths every year consistently, is a silly comparison to make. Obviously vaping is the better option. The only regulation that should have been instituted in order to actually protect people, was for the chemicals used in vape products to be verified as safe. This did not happen, and instead, regulation was put in to slow down the process of sending products through the mail. What seems like the much likelier reason for such regulation – since nothing was outlawed, is the government trying to recoup lost tax revenue from an industry that managed to get by without it.

Of course, once again, where the regulation is needed, it’s not being applied. This Preventing Online Sales of E-Cigarettes to Children Act, comes as an update to the PACT act, which worked to initially close tax holes in the tobacco industry at the inception of tobacco regulation. While it might seem logically like tobacco has been regulated in the US for a long time, this is not the case, and in fact, only became a regulated industry in 2008. The PACT act was known as a way to maximize tax profits by setting up regulation systems.

Perhaps what makes the government give the line of safety, is that the government doesn’t have a right to implement such high regulation which impedes personal privacy, without a large threat. Think of all the smear campaigns for vaping right now. Think of how these low death numbers – like 68 – are being used to incite fear, despite the fact that their comparative number is 480,000 deaths a year from cigarettes. The number of cigarette-related deaths, by the way, is brought to you by the CDC, the same agency that thinks its wise to call 68 deaths in about 15 years from vaping, an epidemic.

Delta 8 syringes as the best vape ban workaround

Luckily, the cannabis industry tends to stay a foot ahead, and even as the vape ban was being prepared, retailers were already investigating another way to sell products. And the new answer to the vape ban is another method of consumption that doesn’t involve smoking. One thing to remember, is that people chose to go to vaping themselves. It was known practically instantly that it was safer, probably because less damage is felt by the smoker.

I can personally attest to the fact that regardless what I have vaped (and I’ve bought plenty of non-dispensary pens), it has never for a second caused the damage that one hit from a joint can cause, and that says a huge amount. People like me wanted a better answer. We didn’t necessarily want to stop consuming these products, but we very clearly wanted a better way to do it. So, what are cannabis syringes, and how do they work as a vape ban workaround?

The answer of cannabis syringes to the vape ban works well in that it does not promote going back to cigarettes, which would be a terrible outcome of this new regulation. Instead, it promotes another healthy means of consumption. Cannabis syringes are not the syringes that you think of when hearing the word ‘syringe’ which is so often associated with illicit drug use, like heroin. These syringes are merely large plastic syringes without a needle, in which there is some form of cannabis oil. This can mean CBD oil, standard cannabis oil, delta-8 THC oil, or any other oil that can be produced from the cannabis plant. The oil is placed under the tongue for sublingual administration.

For anyone unfamiliar with the term ‘sublingual administration’, this means administering a drug in the mouth and under the tongue. This is often done because there are tons of blood vessels right under the tongue which make it easier and faster to absorb a medication into the bloodstream. These oils are often very thick though, and using the syringe allows the correct amount to be administered at a time. This method lets users obtain the same benefits they were receiving from vaping, and without going back to the old way of causing damage through smoking.

Are there other ways around the ban?

Sure. Using Delta 8 syringes to combat the vape ban is great, but some people still want their vapes. It should be remembered that its not a ban, just a high amount of required regulation. Companies like IGEN are coming out to help with the highly complicated world of product taxation, with other companies likely following suit. This can help with the myriad of regulatory laws that must be followed in order to be in compliance with tax and reporting laws. There are also new companies coming around to help with shipping to customers, like X, which is a partnership between two enterprises that was put together specifically to ship vape products at this time.

Then there’s the freight industry, and companies like VapeFreight, that already ships LDL and freight, and will soon do parcel packages as well. According to owner Michael Wittenberg, this B2B shipping solution already has 5,000 carriers in place. This service might not help the end user directly, but it’ll help make sure their products end up in a location where they can buy them. Whether this service will do residential shipping in the future is hard to say, but for now it looks to establish networks to keep B2B vape shipping intact, and to help make sure that dispensaries don’t get shut out by an inability to get their products on shelves.

Smaller shipping services are also taking the bait, with Uship and Shipstation leading the way. Both are looking to capitalize on the situation by offering services currently being cut by bigger private mail providers. Shipstation, for its part, has been requesting and collecting user shipping data in an effort to better understand needs, and looks to be trying to turn this information into a viable answer for shipping vape products in the future.

Conclusion

Perhaps this ban will be all bark and no bite. Maybe just big words, but not a lot of follow-thru. And maybe it’ll be knocked down in court within a month for violating privacy policies. Regardless, we are a population that relies on ingenuity, and that we have in spades. Whether it’s companies that help with complicated tax structures, or alternate shipping avenues, or companies that go from vape products to Delta 8 syringes to get around the vape ban, the one thing you can always count on, is that if there is a repressive law in place with no real value, we’re going to get around it somehow.
