  1. January 19th, 2016 the neighbor and myself caught the guy who'd broke into my house. After PD had taken him into custody and took our statements after the neighbor walked away the police asked about the legality of my firearm and the smell of marijuana. I did not lie I told him the gun was registered in my name and that I was a legal carded patient showed him card and paperwork. I was then informed that I am in violation of state and federal laws and subject to immediate arrest. My only saving grace is the LEO is part of our community watch program. He told me to close my garden and get rid of my firearm. This morning all the garden is gone but i'm keeping my firearm. This morning I sent in my Patient card with a withdrawal letter requesting to be removed from the MM program. When I receive the letter back from LARA I'll post an image. But I'll be god dammed if I cannot protect my family and property and face more legal sanctions and decades in prison more than the scumbag who broke into my home. Maybe some day marijuana will be removed from the schedule list and the issue of firearm ownership along with using or growing cannabis will be resolved. But until then......I'm out.
  2. We had no issues listening in over Wi-Fi connection on an iPhone here in Knox County. t-pain there's a huge push by farmers here for industrial hemp besides the steady drive for Medical Cannabis. Some of the more wealthy and well connected farmers in protest here are planting small hemp crops. The ten (10) state regulated Medical Cannabis growers idea isn't very popular as you could expect. Some are questioning the selection process and do not want out of state companies being able to apply as one of the ten, understandable. Lots of interest here in extracts for fighting cancer. The different types of cancer here is very alarming and no matter age or gender or profession all are affected. Gary S. a retired truck driver who lives here was diagnosed with lung, liver, bone cancer. Never smoked a day in his life no history of cancer of any form in his family. He hasn't much time and like a true fellow Irishman he's throwing his wake tomorrow at the Eagles club. I'll try and post photos if I can't maybe I can email them to admin and they can post.
  3. My pain management Doctor is ok with Medical Cannabis as long as you are a legal carded patient.
  4. On a personal note A big thank you to Mr. Carr for all his help and guidance. I'm back in Ohio and wanted to let you know PGT has growing audience here in central Ohio. There are many here working to bring legal Medical Marijuana to Ohio and with over half of needed signatures already on petitions we believe this time the people will prevail.
  5. New York Times Editorial Board Calls On States To Legalize Recreational Use Of Marijuana http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/10/06/ny-times-marijuana-initiatives-legalize-newspaper-weed_n_5938798.html?&ir=Politics&ncid=tweetlnkushpmg00000016 The New York Times editorial board continued its endorsement for the legalization of marijuana on Sunday with a new push for its recreational use around the country. The Times argued that Alaska, Oregon and the District of Columbia should follow suit and pass initiatives to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. In 2012, Colorado became the first state to cease prohibition of marijuana. The Times called on Alaska, Oregon and the D.C. to take action on their own, asserting that Congress may never come around to repealing the ban. "Decades of arresting people for buying, selling and using marijuana have hurt more than helped society, and minority communities have been disproportionately affected by the harsh criminal penalties of prohibition," the editorial board wrote. "Since Alaska, Oregon and the District of Columbia already allow medical marijuana, taking the next step makes good sense." The renewed push is part of the Times' six-part series to end the prohibition and criminalization of marijuana by bringing a "national approach" to the legalization of the drug. The Times has been criticized before for their efforts by the Office of National Drug Control Policy staff, who said that the work of the editorial board "ignores the science" and "fails to address public health problems" of marijuana legalization. The board fired back at such opponents Sunday, arguing that more widespread usage could actually bring increased revenue to states and lead to safer drug consumption. They pointed again to Colorado as an example of how legalization does not end in disaster: "The sky over Colorado has not fallen, and prohibition has proved to be a complete failure," the board wrote. "It’s time to bring the marijuana market out into the open and end the injustice of arrests and convictions that have devastated communities."
  6. 11-month old killed by foster mother was taken away from parents because of pot use http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/09/11-month-old-killed-by-foster-mother-was-taken-way-from-parents-because-of-pot-use/ n 11-month-old baby girl, taken from her mother by Colorado authorities after her boyfriend admitted to smoking marijuana, was allegedly killed by her foster mother, reports ABC7. Sydney Danielle White, 20, of Grand Junction took an unresponsive baby, Angel Lane Place, to Children’s Hospital in Aurora, telling hospital staff that she had “accidentally dropped” the infant. White later admitted to authorities that she had shaken the baby out of frustration because she couldn’t get her to stop crying. According to the arrest affidavit, White held the baby “by the neck with both hands and shook her multiple times.” She claims she she stopped after one of her children came into the room and said, “Mommy, stop it.” “White said the baby initially became lethargic and wouldn’t wake up, but that later she appeared to be doing better,” police said in a statement. “Later that night White took Angel to St. Mary’s Hospital when Angel’s right side became stiff and she was unresponsive.” After the child was taken off life support, the coroner listed the cause of death as “blunt force head injuries,” ruling her death a homicide. The child’s biological mother, Tierra Place, 17, explained that the child had been removed from her custody because she and her husband fought, and her husband told human services he used marijuana. According to Place, she approved White as the foster mother because White is her sister-in-law, married to her brother. Child Services reported said that the couple were in the process of adopting Angel. Ted Place, Angel’s father, has threatened to sue Mesa County. “You know I was seeing pictures of her, seeing videos, you know she was doing good, she was making good progress, and I was ok with the situation she was in,” he said. “And then, all of a sudden, I had just found out that your daughter is in urgent care in Denver, Colorado, and you need to come there. I just want Mesa County to pay for what they’ve done.” Sydney Danielle White is currently charged with child abuse, but the case remains open and further charges are expected.
  7. We also know that the use of narcotics (Robin had a well known cocaine addiction he kicked) and alcohol can alter brain function and if you already have a neurological disorder those added factors just compound the problem. Maybe some good will come from this tragedy and America as a whole will stop shamming mental illness and recognize it's treatable in most cases with therapy without using psychotropic drugs.

Nanu Nanu You will be missed Friends, please, if you are in crisis pick up the phone and call National Suicide Prevention Life Line at, 800-273-8255 As someone who deals with depression having an understanding person to talk with is what we need.
  9. We can start to really "fix" the issues by voting out the republicans who seem to think we are all drug addicts anyway.
  10. Ohio marijuana law first time offense penalties are pretty lax but penalties increase exponentially after first arrest. Possession 100 grams or less No jail time Misdemeanor $150.00 fine Possession 100-200 grams 30 days in jail misdemeanor $250.00 fine Cultivation same as possession for small quantities 80% of the police, politicians, and citizens of the town I go to and have discussed marijuana prohibition with are for legalization. But as in all red states gerrymandering denies us our one person one vote so a very few control policy for the majority. NORML web site has listing of all states marijuana laws.
  11. "We'll be sure to find and fund ways to arrest legal marijuana users" quote by LE in the Ohio town where I've been going. Even thou Ohio is already a decriminalized state (to an extent) arrests still are the focus of LE. Add in a depressed manufacturing and farming economy along with the sale and move of Rolls Royce to SEIMANS tax revenues have dramatically shrunken and they will find a way to fund "their city". Another glaring example of why WE have to take part in the process.....(just watch your toes)
  12. I've been coming to Knox County, Ohio helping grassroots MM Patents and advocates collect enough signatures by July 5th.to get MM on the 2014 ballot. If any of our members know people or have relatives here please contact them and ask them to support MM. As usual the same tired old reefer madness stories are being used (A-Z) and the most often one used is the old stand-by parroted by Montgomery County Sheriff Phil Plummer "the kids will get it" believe me, the kids here have no problem getting their hands on cartel weed. (both foreign and domestic) The drug LE should be focused on here (as in Michigan) is heroin, it's as common as mosquitoes on a summer night and killing kids right and left. (Of course opiates and meth are also available here in the bible belt of Ohio) The farms of Ohio haven't only been replaced by shopping malls but protected grows.......
  13. Americas politicians may one day allow legal cannabis in all 50 states for adults to partake in, but those same politicians will find new ways to arrest for using legal cannabis.
  14. Mexican Diplomat Says America Pretty Much Invited The Sinaloa Drug Cartel Across The Border Leaked emails from the private U.S. security firm Stratfor cite a Mexican diplomat who says the U.S. government works with Mexican cartels to traffic drugs into the United States and has sided with the Sinaloa cartel in an attempt to limit the violence in Mexico. Many people have doubted the quality of Stratfor's intelligence, but the information from MX1—a Mexican foreign service officer who doubled as a confidential source for Stratfor—seems to corroborate recent claims about U.S. involvement in the drug war in Mexico. Most notably, the reports from MX1 line up with assertions by a Sinaloa cartel insider that cartel boss Joaquin Guzman is a U.S. informant, the Sinaloa cartel was "given carte blanche to continue to smuggle tons of illicit drugs into Chicago," and Operation Fast and Furious was part of an agreement to finance and arm the Sinaloa cartel in exchange for information used to take down rival cartels. An email with the subject "Re: From MX1 -- 2" sent Monday, April 19, 2010, to Stratfor vice president of intelligence Fred Burton says: I think the US sent a signal that could be construed as follows: "To the [Juárez] and Sinaloa cartels: Thank you for providing our market with drugs over the years. We are now concerned about your perpetration of violence, and would like to see you stop that. In this regard, please know that Sinaloa is bigger and better than [the Juárez cartel]. Also note that [Ciudad Juárez] is very important to us, as is the whole border. In this light, please talk amongst yourselves and lets all get back to business. Again, we recognize that Sinaloa is bigger and better, so either [the Juárez cartel] gets in line or we will mess you up." In sum, I have a gut feeling that the US agencies tried to send a signal telling the cartels to negotiate themselves. They unilaterally declared a winner, and this is unprecedented, and deserves analysis. Bill Conroy of Narco News reports that MX1's description matches the publicly available information on Fernando de la Mora Salcedo — a Mexican foreign service officer who studied law at the University of New Mexico and served at the Mexican Consulates in El Paso, Texas, and Phoenix. In a June 13, 2010, email with the subject "Re: Get follow up from mx1? Thx," MX1 states that U.S. and Mexican law enforcement sent their "signal" by discretely brokering a deal with cartels in Tijuana, just south of San Diego, Calif., which reduced the violence in the area considerably. It is not so much a message for the Mexican government as it is for the Sinaloa cartel and [the Juárez cartel] themselves. Basically, the message they want to send out is that Sinaloa is winning and that the violence is unacceptable. They want the CARTELS to negotiate with EACH OTHER. The idea is that if they can do this, violence will drop and the governments will allow controlled drug trades. The email went on to say that "the major routes and methods for bulk shipping into the US" from Ciudad Juárez, right across the border from El Paso, Texas, "have already been negotiated with US authorities" and that large shipments of drugs from the Sinaloa cartel "are OK with the Americans." In July a Mexican state government spokesman told Al Jazeera that the CIA and other international security forces "don't fight drug traffickers" as much as "try to manage the drug trade." A mid-level Mexican official told Al Jazeera that based on discussions he's had with U.S. officials working in Ciudad Juárez, the allegations were true. WikiLeaks has published 2,878 out of what it says is a cache of 5 million internal Stratfor emails (dated between July 2004 and December 2011) obtained by the hacker collective Anonymous around Christmas.

  18. Can Drug-Sniffing Dog Prompt Home Search? http://www.npr.org/2...rch?ft=1&f=1001 You can already hear all the likely jokes at the Supreme Court, about the justices going to the dogs. But the issue being argued Wednesday is deadly serious: whether police can take a trained drug-detection dog up to a house to smell for drugs inside, and if the dog alerts, use that to justify a search of the home. In the case before the court, the four-legged cop was named Franky, and as a result of his nose, his human police partner charged Joelis Jardines with trafficking in more than 25 pounds of marijuana. In the fall of 2006, police in Florida got an anonymous crime-stoppers tip that there was illegal drug activity at the Jardines home. A month later, police officers took Franky to the house and walked him up to the front porch. When the dog alerted for drugs, the police got a warrant, found marijuana growing inside and arrested Jardines. The Florida Supreme Court ruled that the dog sniff was an illegal search and thus could not justify a warrant. Now the state has appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, and the case poses tricky issues for both law enforcement and privacy advocates. Dog sniffs do have a history at the court. In the past, the justices have ruled that dog sniffs do not constitute a search. But those decisions involved cars that had been stopped for other reasons and luggage in public places, not homes. "The entire history of the Fourth Amendment really is based on the fact that the home is different," says Jardines' lawyer, Howard Blumberg. "It goes all the way back to the early 1600s and the saying that a man's home is his castle." Indeed, in 2001 the Supreme Court, in a decision written by conservative Justice Antonin Scalia, ruled that police could not use heat-detection devices outside a home to detect marijuana grow lights inside. Not only does the device violate the home dweller's expectation of privacy, said Scalia, but the technology could detect many other innocent details of the homeowner's life, like "the hour at which the lady of the house takes her bath." Florida contends, however, that using drug-detection dogs is not analogous to technology because there is no constitutional right to possess contraband, and the state maintains that dogs trained to detect illegal drugs do not alert to other substances. The police were doing nothing more than the postman or the trick-or-treater, says lawyer Gregory Garre, representing Florida. The police "did the same thing that millions of Americans will do on Halloween night, which is walk up to the front steps, knock on the door, and while they were there, they took in the air and the dog alerted to the smell of illegal narcotics." Public defender Blumberg replies that the state's reasoning is pushing the envelope beyond the Constitution's ban on unwarranted searches. If a dog sniff at the front door is not deemed to be a search, he warns, the real-life consequences could be profound. Police would be free "to walk up and down suburban neighborhoods, go up to each door, and see if the dog alerts to contraband." And they could do the same thing in apartment houses, checking out each apartment door "based on nothing, or on an anonymous tip, or because that's what they want to do that day." That's just not a realistic scenario, according to the state. "They have far too many things to do than to waste their time with that sort of indiscriminate searching," says Garre. The dog sniff case leads inevitably back to the question of how much technology the government can use to determine what is going on inside the home. If a dog sniff is permissible, why not develop some new and cheaper technology that does the same thing — a detection device that could easily be used, going home to home or apartment to apartment? Florida asserts that there is a fundamental difference between a dog and a technological device. "We recognize that there are limits to one's God-given senses," says Garre, "whereas with technology there is always the possibility, as we've seen, of advances that would be tantamount to X-raying houses." Last year the Supreme Court balked at technology like that, requiring a warrant if police place a GPS tracking device on the car of a criminal suspect. The question here, at rock bottom, is whether walking a drug-detection dog up to a house is more acceptable, involving, as it does, man's best friend.

  21. Feds Crack Down on Southern California Medical Marijuana\ Associated Press - Tuesday, August 21 2012 http://www.cannabisculture.com/content/2012/08/21/Feds-Crack-Down-Southern-California-Medical-Marijuana Federal prosecutors on Tuesday expanded their crackdown on California medical marijuana dispensaries, filing three lawsuits and sending warning letters to more than 60 clinics in two Orange County cities. The asset-forfeiture lawsuits filed against landlords who own buildings that house six marijuana shops in Anaheim and the letters order the closure of the clinics or possible criminal charges will be filed. More than 300 pot stores and grows have been targeted in the Central District of California, which stretches from Santa Barbara to San Bernardino counties, since October when the state's four U.S. attorneys announced an effort to curb dispensaries. Prosecutors argue dealers and suppliers are using the state's medical pot law, approved in 1996, as legal cover for running sophisticated drug-trafficking ventures in plain sight. Marijuana remains illegal under federal law. Medical marijuana advocates argue the collectives are protected by California law, which allows the drug to be cultivated and supplied to ill people on a nonprofit basis.
  22. Are LEO's involved in shootings drug and or alcohol tested as part of investigation? Sheriff: Officer who struck house drank, not drunk http://www.freep.com/article/20120821/NEWS06/120821073/1001/rss01 DeWITT TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Authorities say an off-duty Michigan police sergeant had been drinking but wasn't legally drunk when he crashed his car into a house. Clinton County Sheriff Wayne Kangas says that Sgt. Jason Jones' blood alcohol level after the crash at 1:45 a.m. Saturday was below Michigan's legal limit. State law defines drunkenness as a blood alcohol level of 0.08 percent or higher. Kangas didn't release the officer's exact blood alcohol test reading. The crash happened in DeWitt Township, where Jones works. It's near Lansing. The Lansing State Journal says township officials asked the sheriff to investigate because Jones is a township employee. The sheriff says Jones reports he stepped on the gas pedal instead of the brake before the crash. Damage to the house is estimated at $2,500 to $5,000.
