  1. heres what happens when marijuana is legal: Court: Scent not enough for car search Because pot is legal in state, smell doesn’t constitute cause By Charles Ashby Friday, July 14, 2017 The indication by a drug-sniffing police dog to the presence of controlled substances in a vehicle by itself is not enough to constitute probable cause for police to search that vehicle, the Colorado Court of Appeals ruled Thursday. In a precedent-setting case involving a Moffat County resident, a three-judge panel agreed that a police officer needs more cause to search a vehicle without permission from its owner. That’s because it could be legal marijuana, the court ruled. “Because Amendment 64 legalized possession for personal use of one ounce or less of marijuana by persons 21 years of age or older in Colorado, it is no longer accurate to say, at least as a matter of state law, that an alert by a dog which can detect marijuana — but not specific amounts — can reveal only the presence of ‘contraband,’” Judge Daniel Dailey wrote in the ruling, which was joined by Judges Michael Berger and Jerry Jones. “A dog sniff could result in an alert with respect to something for which, under Colorado law, a person has a legitimate expectation of privacy,” the court added. “Because a dog sniff of a vehicle could infringe upon a legitimate expectation of privacy solely under state law, that dog sniff should now be considered a ‘search’ for purposes of (the amendment) where the occupants are 21 years or older.” In this February 2015 case, Craig Police Cpl. Bryan Gonzales had followed a truck driven by Craig resident Kevin McKnight that was leaving a home that had been searched for drugs nearly two months earlier. Gonzales testified that he pulled the truck over because McKnight allegedly made a turn without using a turn signal. He later called in Sgt. Courtland Folks with the Moffat County Sheriff’s Office and his drug-detection dog, Kilo. Kilo is trained to detect cocaine, heroin, esctasy, methamphetamine and marijuana. After Kilo detected something in the vehicle, it was searched by police, revealing a glass pipe commonly used to smoke meth. Despite a motion by McKnight’s attorney to suppress that search, Moffat County District Judge Michael O’Hara allowed evidence found from it. McKnight, 48 at the time, was later convicted of possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance. But the appeals court said that because some amounts of marijuana are legal, and the dog could not tell officers what he was sniffing, the officers did not have enough probable cause to conduct the search. Both Berger and Jones wrote separate concurring opinions in the case. While Berger said Amendment 64 gave Coloradans “an enforceable expectation of privacy,” Jones said the amendment has “added a level of ambiguity” when it comes to police trying to gather evidence in drug cases.
  2. its the definition of republicans who have not woken up to see that the elected republicans say they are for smaller govt and no new taxes and then turn around and make bigger govt and more taxes. there are plenty of conservatives still around, why they vote republican is anyones guess
  3. couple things: to change your addy, call LARA or change it on the application form. about return addy? they probably ignore it. about anything on the letter, small letters that say "MMP" on the envelope and its from licensing regulatory agency
  4. next, freep will be telling us that grow stores also advocate to legalize marijuana to increase the grow store business! what madness!
  5. shop that sells vapes, bongs, pipes and papers to marijuana smokers advocating for legalizing marijuana, news at 11 oh also lighters, butane, butane lighters, nails, bubblers, filters, rolling machines, grinders, jars.... what else.... like 90% of their inventory.
  6. Growing safely at home Make sure all lights and other equipment are installed by a licensed electrician to prevent fire hazards. To prevent mold growth, make sure the walls of your grow area don’t easily absorb water (painted concrete or plastic are best). Make sure the growing space has plenty of ventilation to get rid of excess heat and moisture. Avoid the use of pesticides or fertilizers if possible. Learn more about state rules on pesticide use for commercial products. If pesticides or fertilizers are used, make sure they’re stored in locked cabinets, out of the reach of children. Also, wear personal protective equipment when using pesticides. Only use carbon dioxide generators that are safe for indoor use. Change clothes and shoes when leaving your indoor grow area to prevent tracking chemicals to other areas of your home. Throwing items out when you are done: To throw away any pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, solvents, and mercury-containing lighting, take these items to a household hazardous waste collection facility. If there isn’t one in your area, contact your local health department for information on upcoming waste collection events that may be in your area. Mercury-containing lighting recyclers may be available in your area as well. To properly throw away marijuana plant or food products, grind up and mix the product with food waste or soil so that no one accidentally eats or uses it. You can then use your household trash or the nearest landfill.
  7. "But, Baxter said, the initiative to amend Chapter 61 will not appear on the ballot." is this the same jerk that tried to block prop m in detroit in 2012 and failed in the courts?
  8. lol "smart alternatives to marijuana" typo "smart approaches to marijuana". nice freudian slip. for a second i thought SAM changed its name.
  9. marijuana, especially medical marijuana is not a conservative vs liberal ideal. it has wide support from everyone, in every poll, local or nationwide. with florida getting medical marijuana vote at 70%, which is the most % a medical marijuana state has been created so far. michigan was the previous biggest percentage with 63%. now we cant claim it any longer. florida leans heavily republican. its not a republican vs democrat thing. although republicans dislike marijuana more than democrats. with independents supporting marijuana more than either party.
  10. what jerks. block should start the whammy lawsuit 30 million damages for lost wages, distress, etc. this is all a sec 8 case and 4210 makes it all moot anyways.
  11. where was the first chs found/created again? heres from 2011: doi: 10.4045/tidsskr.10.0959. A man in his 30s with recurrent vomiting and abdominal pain relieved by hot showers.
  12. the study from 2013 says mild abdominal pain
  13. wait, when did they add abdominal pain to CHS? i dont remember that being a symptom.
  14. its scary when you think about it. they are misdiagnosing some other illness or problem when they call it for CHS. please get 2 or 3 second opinions from doctors before doing anything major to your body...
