  2. So every day I read more and more about dispensaries, and government this and that.. LEOs hate this law due to lack of funding stemming from Marijuana arrests.. I was theorizing this morning with a buddy of mine.. I can see it now, the Government run dispensaries will cancel out our rights to grow our own, which in turn will put a halt to the "legal home grow" That will satisfy LEO cause they will now be able to raid each suspected home that has a grow and seize all the equipment and still get to charge you with a cannabis related charge. seems to be looking up for the big guys imo.. They get to corner the MM market, and seeing as it wont be legal to grow your own anymore they know 40-60% of people have involvement in growing they have a huge new group of Marijuana users to target to hit their quota.. I'm not excited about the future at all All this belly aching about your precious dispensaries is going to ruin everything for alot of people that just want to get by and not have to go through another fiasco run by the government the same people that have no idea wtf is good or bad.. its all about the money $$ Is it REALLLLLLY that hard to find some herb, the stuff thats been around since the beginning of freaking time?? Can't they setup a web based program that makes it easy like a click of the button kind of stuff for the real square/newbie. Kinda like buying insurance you have a site setup with CG's the new pt goes through finds your ad that fits what your looking for and move along???? Sorry my rant is out of frustration, I just have this nasty feeling that the police and suits will get their way.. and Marijuana arrests will be here to stay.. legal or not.
  3. Washington, D.C. -- If you're going to wage war on drugs, you need to be outfitted like a warrior. That seems to be the rationale behind hundreds of police department requests for armored trucks submitted to the Pentagon between 2012 and 2014. The requests, unearthed in a FOIA request by Mother Jones magazine, shed light on how the war on drugs has directly contributed to the militarization of local police forces in recent years.

  4. Some of this was discussed in the Koon thread but I figured this needs its own treatment so it stands out. This is an important issue with the decision in the Koon case upholding the per se or "any presence" statute in regard to patients. So let's discuss tips on how to protect yourself from a drugged driving charge. Remember, if you have any active THC in your system then you are drugged, regardless of your level of impairment. THC will remain in your system for a few days following your last ingestion of cannabis. You won't feel high but it is there and if a blood draw is done then you could be charged with a crime. Probable cause is necessary to do a blood draw. Your goal is to reduce the likelihood of a finding of probable cause. Before you drive: 1. DON'T DRIVE STONED! It isn't safe anyway so just don't do it. 2. Make sure that neither you nor your car smell like freshly burned marijuana. 3. At the very least wear a smoking jacket if you smoke marijuana. Also, wear a hat. Take them off when you are done. This obviously goes for the ladies too. No need to buy a new jacket just use one that you can leave at home and not drive in. An oversized oxford shirt would work as well but the thicker the garment the better. 4. Shower and change clothing if that is possible. At the very least wash your face and hands. 5. Brush your teeth or gargle with mouthwash. 6. Wear a light cologne and chew gum or suck on breath mints. 7. Regularly spray the interior of your car with an odor absorbing air freshener. 8. Be friendly and cooperative with the police if stopped. Don't underestimate the value of being friendly and cooperative and NOT becoming defensive or offensive. 9. Do not offer information. If they know you have a card and ask when you last medicated simply state that you wish to exercise your right to remain silent. 10. Become a caregiver. If they can smell fresh marijuana in your car then indicate that you are a caregiver and show your caregiver card. That way they don't know you are a patient, and therefore a user. If they know you are a patient they are more likely to probe for info to lead to reasonable suspicion to field test you and ultimately blood test you if they can establish probable casue. 11. Use alternative forms of ingestion rather than smoking your meds. If you enjoy smoking then reserve that for times when you know you won't be driving. Maybe smoke at night before bed, etc. 12. Drive safely to avoid police stops. Don't speed, etc. Avoiding the police should be your number 1 goal. 13. Do not drink and drive. If you have alcohol in you there is a heightened chance of them getting a blood draw to confirm your BAL. That alone could lead to a check for THC. Remember, .08 is the per se legal limit. If you drive with a .08 or above then you will be charged with OWI. However, you can still be charged with OWI if your blood alcohol level is below .08 if it can be proven that the alcohol substantially lessened your ability to drive. So you could blow a .07 on a PBT and then end up at the station and do a .07 on the more reliable datamaster and then end up getting a blood draw as well. Do don't drink and drive. And if you only had "one or two beers" don't drive like a fool. Don't text or talk on your cell. Pay attention to the road. I'm sure I'm missing some good tips so I'll add them later if I think of any. In the meantime others should feel free to contribute advice.
  5. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie ® said on Monday that the war on drugs has been a "failure" -- even though he has vowed to enact a federal crackdown on marijuana, a substance that has been a primary target of the drug war for decades. "This is a disease and the war on drugs has been a failure -- well-intentioned, but a failure," Christie said at a presidential forum in New Hampshire on Monday. He went on to say that the country should "embrace" people who are addicted to drugs and alcohol, offering them a chance at rehabilitation rather than incarceration. Read More...
  6. USA -- The war on drugs is over, and weed won. D.A.R.E., the organization designed to plant a deep-seated fear of drugs in the minds of every late-20th-century middle schooler, published an op-ed calling for marijuana legalization. Written by former deputy sheriff Carlis McDerment in response to a letter in the Columbus Dispatch, the op-ed explains that it's impossible for law enforcement to control the sale of marijuana to minors. "People like me, and other advocates of marijuana legalization, are not totally blind to the harms that drugs pose to children," McDerment writes. "We just happen to know that legalizing and regulating marijuana will actually make everyone safer." Read More...
  7. Colorado -- Oklahoma and Nebraska have filed a lawsuit with the U.S. Supreme Court asking it to deem Colorado's marijuana laws unconstitutional, The Denver Post reports. The states, which border Colorado, claim in the suit that their neighbor's recreational pot policy is "draining their treasuries, and placing stress on their criminal justice system." Because recreational weed is not legal in Nebraska and Oklahoma – and those states must abide by federal law, which also prohibits it – the they want Colorado's policy overturned. They are not seeking financial damages. "The State of Colorado has created a dangerous gap in the federal drug control system," the lawsuit – which Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning and Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt filed Thursday – alleges. "Marijuana flows from this gap into neighboring states, undermining [our states'] own marijuana bans." Read More...
  8. In an announcement today, the White House has pledged $263 million in new federal funding for police training and body cameras, set aside by executive order. The money includes $75 million allocated specifically for the purchase 50,000 cameras for law enforcement officers across the country. The training portion of the funds would go toward instructing police in the responsible use of paramilitary equipment like assault rifles and armored personnel carriers, much of which has flooded local departments as a result of a Homeland Security preparedness program. Additional funds will go to fund police outreach programs designed to build trust between local departments and the communities they serve. $263 million in new federal funding The cameras are designed to provide a definitive record of police activities, and have become a frequent demand in the wake of the Ferguson protests. The protests began with the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed teenager killed by the police in Ferguson. Community leaders pointed to video taken in the aftermath of Brown's death as evidence of police misconduct, and the subsequent outcry has triggered a Justice Department investigation. More recently, a widely shared video of Cleveland police shooting a 12-year-old named Tamir Rice has intensified the demand for video documentation of police activities. Last week, the parents of Michael Brown announced a campaign "to ensure that every police officer working the streets in this country wears a body camera." The new funding push is substantial, but 50,000 cameras will cover only a fraction of the more than 750,000 police officers currently employed in America. Camera proposals have also run into trouble with public records laws in states like Washington, which require the release of all police records not actively tied up in an investigation. With hundreds of hours of video generated by police cameras every day, that would present serious problems for both privacy and simple logistics. Still, many police departments have already looked into body-mounted cameras. On October 1st, the Washington D.C. police began a six-month pilot program that put cameras on the shoulders of many local police, and officials expect the program to reduce the number of complaints filed against officers by as much as 80 percent. The program wasn't cheap: it cost $1 million to buy and store the necessary volume of cameras. But after today, other departments that decide to take the same leap will have federal matching funds to soften the blow.

  10. Washington, D.C. -- The Drug Enforcement Administration has been impeding and ignoring the science on marijuana and other drugs for more than four decades, according to a report released this week by the Drug Policy Alliance, a drug policy reform group, and the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, a marijuana research organization. “The DEA is a police and propaganda agency," Ethan Nadelmann, executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance, said Wednesday. “It makes no sense for it to be in charge of federal decisions involving scientific research and medical practice."

  11. US Gov: Marijuana Arrests for Federal Funding? The United States government has been dangling the proverbial carrot in the faces of law enforcement agencies all across America in a ploy to exchange minor marijuana-related arrests for federal funding under the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant. Instead of awarding additional funds to law enforcement agencies that make devastating busts that affect the bottom line of the drug cartels, this program pays police agencies a significant bonus for making minor marijuana arrests -- a discrepancy in the system that has become just as much a problem for rural communities as it is in big cities. “Although the government claims [byrne grant money] goes toward apprehending high-level traffickers, it’s often very low level people who get arrested. It targets low-income people and people of color much more than anyone understands,” Harry Levine, a drug policy expert and sociologist at Queens College, told AlterNet. Funds from the Byrne grant program are distributed each fiscal year to law enforcement agencies based on drug arrest and seizure criteria from the previous year. Those standards, which are consistent state-to-state, include: number of offenders arrested, number of offenders prosecuted, number of drug seizures, quantity by weight and drug type, and total value of funds and assets forfeited. The Marijuana Arrest Research Project recently set out to dissect the Byrne Reports of 20 states, in which they uncovered a ghastly agenda against the stoner nation. It seems that law enforcement’s bullying tactics against the average marijuana user is the most productive group to shakedown, seizing 232,006 ounces of marijuana in the state of Tennessee in 2011. To make things worse, the report cosigns what most marijuana advocates have been privy to for some time -- marijuana possession is the most profitable “drug” offense across the country. In Arizona, police agencies nailed more people for marijuana possession (42 percent) than for any other drug – methamphetamine (26 percent), cocaine (nine percent). It does not take a genius to see that if police stopped arresting citizens for marijuana, their funding would be severed almost in half. The report finds that police agencies have been using Byrne funds to pay their force and assist them in fulfilling their equipment wish list, rather than using the money as it is intended -- to finance special narcotics departments. “With Byrne grant money, the police can buy all kinds of stuff -- police cars, bullet proof vests, computers, bullets -- buy whatever they want,” said Levine. Essentially, local police departments are being rewarded with bonus money to finance salaries and new toys for officers based on the number of non-violent marijuana possession arrests they make each year. Of course, pressure to maintain this funding has given law enforcement and local municipalities the will to aggressively pursue, arrest and prosecute the average marijuana user. Ultimately, the Byrne grant program is funding foot soldiers fighting the War on Drugs and in doing so, intensifying the battle rather working towards a unified surrender.
  12. Imagine if you will, cruising down Woodward Avenue all smiles and sunshine until you see it; that red, white and blue flicker in your rear-view mirror. The Oakland County Sheriff has abruptly merged behind you. We’ve all felt that initial rush, the terror of being ‘pulled over’ and treated like a child. Whether you’re a sinner or a saint those lights strike fear and now they can do much more. Let’s take this a step further. Sitting there shamed and awaiting punishment would you be tolerant with the immediate confiscation and investigation of your private belongings including cell phone data? ‘HailStorm’ is a new device obtained by the Oakland County Sheriff with monies from a U.S. Homeland Security Grant and so far, there isn’t much information available on what exactly it can and cannot do. There were no questions asked when Oakland County commissioners unanimously approved the use of this cellphone tracking device previously used by the US military in Iraq. Undersheriff Michael McCabe told The Detroit News that the federal Homeland Security Act bars him from discussing the Hailstorm device. Many privacy advocates are questioning why one of the safest counties in Michigan needs the very powerful, super-secretive military device called ‘Hailstorm’. The Detroit News sought basic information about Hailstorm and the county denied their Freedom of Information Act request. The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office, located here in Pontiac, is the only police department in the state of Michigan(that we know of?) currently using the military technology. If you think this is an invasion of privacy, you are not alone. “I don’t like not knowing what it’s capable of,” Oakland County Commissioner Jim Runestad told the Detroit News. Recently, police in Florida were caught abusing a similar device over 200 times, called ‘Stingray’, without ever telling a judge or obtaining a warrant. “It’s all very secretive and information about (Stingray and Hailstorm) is tightly controlled, which makes it (difficult) to have a broad discussion about these tools,” said Alan Butler, a lawyer for the Electronic Privacy Information Center. Oakland county received a $258,370 federal grant that paid for more than half the device, training and about $56,000 to purchase a vehicle to contain it. I can’t help but think back to the exclusive piece released in February by Jeremy Scahill and Glenn Greenwald exposing the NSA’s secret role in the US drone assassination program. Drone strike operators usually identify targets based on metadata and cell-phone tracking technologies like Hailstorm and Stingray. From there, the CIA or US military orders a drone strike to the location of the phone the target is thought to be using. This doesn’t make me feel very good about the 30,000+ drones expected to be flying over Americans heads by the end of this decade. This is not right! Police departments across the country have been armed with devices that can tap into cellphone data in real time, capturing information about thousands of people at the same time, whether they are targets of an investigation or not, according to public records obtained by USA Today. The records show that more than 125 police agencies in 33 states are already guilty! Unfortunately, these machines were developed by the military and spy agencies to use on terrorists, so information about what the devices and their operators can actually do(and currently doing in Oakland County) will remain a secret due to the Homeland Security Act of 2002. Just last Friday a divided federal appeals court ruled The Justice Department does not have to turn over information on cases involving warrantless cellphone tracking to the American Civil Liberties Union, which had requested information on federal cases in which law enforcement had obtained cellphone tracking data without a warrant to track a user’s whereabouts. This information needs to go viral.
  13. An Oakland County Judge ruled last month that selling marijuana to an undercover police officer posing as a Medical Marijuana Patient is entrapment. The nine page opinion ordered the charges against the six defendants be dismissed finding the case in which she presided is no different than providing a fraudulent prescription to a pharmacist. The facts are relatively straight forward. An undercover officer called a Southfield dispensary and asked what he needed to obtain marijuana from the dispensary. The detective was told that he needed to bring proof that he was a registered patient under the MMMA (Section 4) or, proof that a doctor had stated that he had a debilitating condition and would benefit from the use of medical marijuana, along with proof of his application for registration and payment of the $100 registration fee—presumably to insure the detective would fit under Section 8 of the MMMA. The detective then falsified the medical marijuana paperwork and presented them to the dispensary employees. The detective also signed a membership agreement where he stated in part, that he was not seeking to become a member for any illegal or fraudulent purpose. A search warrant was authorized and the dispensary was raided by the police. The Court, based on the conduct of the officer, ordered the charges get dismissed. Michigan follows the objective test of entrapment. That means that court will look to the investigative and evidence gathering procedures of the officers—and not the predisposition of the individual committing the alleged crime. To successfully assert an entrapment defense, the defendant must show the court by a preponderance of the evidence, or by 51% or more that there was an abuse of authority and the criminal acts were instigated by the police. The court, in ordering the charges get dismissed stated “[t]here can be little question that the actions of the police induced the commission of this crim. In fact, the actions of the police are the only reason the actions of the defendants constitute a crime. It is unclear whether this case will be appealed by the Oakland County Prosecuting Attorney but, given the stance of that county’s prosecutor’s office, it would appear that an Appeal is likely. Newburg Law, PLLC have represented a number of dispensary employees across the state of Michigan. It is important that someone facing delivery of marijuana charges to an officer or even a confidential informant determine whether entrapment is a defense in their case.

  14. Stab and slice interpretations of the United States Constitution are threatening American citizens daily, and the most recent is brought to you by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, which decided earlier this week that cops no longer need to secure a warrant before searching a vehicle. The incident surrounding this verdict involves a 2010 traffic stop in which the Philadelphia police pulled over a vehicle for having a dark window tint, and later discovered two pounds of marijuana stashed under the hood. The Fourth Amendment is supposed to prohibit law enforcement officers from conducting “unreasonable search and seizures.” This right is forfeited, however, if police see evidence of illegal substances in plaint sight or if the driver consents to a search. However, based on the opinion of the PA justices, an officer only needs to establish reasonable probable cause to conduct a search without a warrant. However, Supreme Court Justice Debra McCloskey Todd does not support the opinion of the justice majority, stating that decision “heedlessly contravenes over 225 years of unyielding protection against unreasonable search and seizure, which our people have enjoyed as their birthright.” It is “diametrically contrary to the deep historical and legal traditions” of the state of Pennsylvania, she added. Legal experts are worried that the court’s ruling has opened the door for a governmental stranglehold that could reduce the rights of the American citizen. “It’s an expanding encroachment of government power,” said Pennsylvania attorney Jeffrey Conrad. “It’s a protection we had two days ago, that we don’t have today. It’s disappointing from a citizens’ rights perspective.” Attorney Christopher Patterson, added, “that we are on a slippery slope that will eliminate personal privacy and freedom in the name of expediency for law enforcement.” http://www.hightimes.com/read/pa-supreme-court-cops-no-longer-need-search-warrants
  15. A Mexican Drug Lord’s Home Was Raided. It’s Even More Incredible And Horrifying Than I Ever Could Have Imagined There was a matched pair of these found. .357 Magnum semi-automatics with solid gold grips. This guy had a better gun collection than most legitimate museums do. Just a quaint little villa in the hills – Drug money bought it all! Man-made cave and hot tub inside the home. A collection of exotic animals – which were cared for in the grandest fashion, by the way. 8 Lions were on the property. A very rare Tiger. The back yard pool. Exotic art collection – some of which was illegal to own – some stolen. More guns than you could ever imagine! This pile of cash before it was counted was estimated to be approximately 18 Billion Dollars! After it was counted it turned out to be a little more than 22 Billion Dollars! From another angle. Guns were hidden all over the house, along with ample ammo, just in case of trouble. Stacks of cash were found in every nook and cranny… This case is filled with 100 dollar Bills estimated to be 1/2 a million dollars and no doubt headed out to make another drug deal with perhaps the Colombians. 18 plastic bins filled with 100 dollar bills were found… Another cabinet stacked tight with cash – all 100′s. More 100′s. Each of these stacks of 100′s holds USD 250,000 (a quarter of a million US dollars)! They also had millions in Colombian money and Mexican Pesos, although they preferred American dollars for the most part. There were even stacks of Chinese Yuan found in one closet. More Gold machine guns and pistols – most were never fired, just held for collection value. The money and valuables found in this one house alone, would be enough to pay for health insurance for every man woman and child in the USA for 12 years! There is estimated to be approximately 27 more of these houses in Mexico alone. Not to mention the ones in other countries who are enriching themselves in the drug trade. These people have so much money, they make the Arab oil sheiks look like welfare recipients. Their money can buy politicians, cops, judges, etc. Whatever they need they just throw down stacks of cash and it is theirs! This is why the drug problem is so difficult to fight.
  16. DOJ Gives Washington State Access to Database for Background Checks After almost a year of requests, the Department of Justice has granted Washington state access to an FBI database so state officials can do nationwide background checks on individuals applying for recreational marijuana business licenses. The DOJ explained Thursday that it is allowing both Washington and Colorado to conduct background checks because it aligns with the department’s goals of keeping people with criminal histories out of the marijuana industry. One of the Obama Administration’s goals when it comes to marijuana is to prohibit revenues from going to criminal organizations or becoming a front for drug trafficking across state lines. Washington initially asked for access to the nationwide database last April but was denied without explanation by the DOJ. The department has since changed their stance. The Washington Liquor Control Board began issuing marijuana business license without the nationwide background checks, but will use the resource moving forward. They will also conduct nationwide background checks on those who have already received licenses. [Source]
  17. Washington, D.C. -- The Obama administration would be willing to work with Congress if lawmakers want to take marijuana off the list of what the federal government considers the most dangerous drugs, Attorney General Eric Holder said Friday. "We'd be more than glad to work with Congress if there is a desire to look at and reexamine how the drug is scheduled, as I said there is a great degree of expertise that exists in Congress," Holder said during a House Appropriations Committee hearing. "It is something that ultimately Congress would have to change, and I think that our administration would be glad to work with Congress if such a proposal were made." Read More...
  18. Washington, D.C. -- Far from being discouraged by the shifts in public opinion, state laws and even within the Obama administration on the legalization of marijuana, federal drug agents are now driven to "fight harder," Drug Enforcement Administration chief Michele Leonhart said Wednesday. Leonhart, who reportedly criticized President Barack Obama for comparing marijuana to alcohol during a closed-door meeting with a law enforcement organization, suggested during testimony Wednesday before a House Appropriations subcommittee that voters in Washington state and Colorado were duped into legalizing marijuana.

  19. Police Mistake Tea Leaves for Pot, Raid Ex-CIA Kansas police can use garbage as probable cause to kick down the doors of unsuspecting citizens. Just ask Bob Harte, whose house was recently raided by a SWAT team after investigators discovered tea leaves in a trash can, which they suspected to be marijuana. According to reports, the whole crooked incursion began after an officer with the Missouri Highway Patrol witnessed Harte entering a Kansas City hydroponics shop and walking out with a small bag. Apparently, that was enough reasonable suspicion for the officer to turn the info over to the local cops and get them to initiate a full-blown investigation. Incidentally, it was later discovered that Harte had gone to the Green Circle hydroponics shop with his kids to purchase supplies for a basement hydroponic garden his son was building as a science project. Investigators showed up at the Harte residence on three separate occasions to run surveillance and rummage through their trash in hopes of uncovering the slightest smidgen of evidence that could help them obtain a search warrant. Records indicate that on the first visit; officers uncovered wet plant material they believed to be marijuana, but they forgot to test it. On the second and third pass through the family’s curbside waste, they discovered the same soggy plant-like substance, which they say tested positive as marijuana, according to a statement. Yet, strangely, none of the suspected evidence was ever sent to the crime lab for confirmation. Instead, investigators bypassed this important detail and convinced a judge to issue them a search warrant. The next morning, while Harte, his wife and two children slept, a SWAT team busted into their home and engaged the family in a two-hour shakedown, during which authorities gave no indication as to why they were there other than they were looking for “narcotics.” Kansas state law dictates that officers do not have to give a suspect the warrant until after the search is complete. Fortunately, this story has a happy ending. Not only did the police not find any marijuana or anything else illegal during the raid but the Harte’s attorney has since filed a lawsuit after lab results determined the wet plant-like substance was, in fact, tea. The best part is; while police were dumpster diving for evidence to bust the Harte’s for marijuana, they missed a very important detail: The Harte’s are retired CIA employees, with the proper resources to fight crooked law enforcement, which is exactly what they have been doing for the past year. “This not what justice in the United States is supposed to be. You shouldn't have to have $25,000, even $5,000. You shouldn't have to have that kind of money to find out why people came raiding your house like some sort of police state,” said Bob’s wife Addie during a recent interview. http://www.hightimes.com/read/police-mistake-tea-leaves-pot-raid-ex-cia
  20. Colorado Police Ask For More Money for Marijuana Enforcement The Colorado Association of Chiefs of Police wrote a letter to Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper this week, asking for some money from the state’s recreational marijuana program to go back into police enforcement. The letter comes in response to a plan released y the Governor last week that detailed the ways that tax revenues would be used. Police were allotted only a small portion of the revenue. In the letter, the Chiefs ask Governor Hickenlooper to create a grant program for police departments throughout the state to help cover costs related to recreational marijuana legalization and enforcing the new law. Police Chiefs are arguing they could use the tax revenue to train officers to better identify high drivers, target marijuana traffickers, create a statewide database of marijuana crimes, and purchase oral fluid testing kits that could be used to test drivers at DUI checkpoints. Hickenlooper’s budget proposal predicted that the recreational marijuana program would bring in even more money than originally anticipated. The governor’s office anticipated that the state will earn over $133 million in the next fiscal year off of recreational marijuana, but only $3 million of that is being allotted to the police forces throughout the state. The Chiefs are requesting that 10 – 15% of the state’s tax revenue from marijuana goes to them. The majority of the funds raised through taxing recreational marijuana are slated to go to marijuana addiction treatment and youth prevention. Department of Public Safety executive director Jim Davis responded to the Police Chief Association, stating, “We are confident that once we fully understand the needs and plans, we can submit and support supplemental funding requests.” Davis has requested a meeting with the group to find out more about police needs.

  21. Disabled Vet Grows Pot, Calls Cops On Himself A disabled veteran is bringing the fight for marijuana legalization in North Carolina straight to the cops. That is to say he actually called the cops on himself for growing marijuana in his backyard. Robert Dorr wants to bring the legal battle to a head for medical marijuana and his fellow veterans are backing him up. "Mr. Dorr is a very braved disabled veteran who had decided instead of hiding in the corner and use cannabis and feel like a criminal to let people know this is medicine," said Perry Parks, a retired army veteran of 29 years. Dorr is out to change the laws in North Carolina for medicinal use. "This is something that's unfolding around the country. It's not about a person trying to make a point or prove he's right," says Dorr, "It's essentially this is how justice unfolds when there's been legislative error." The Union County Sheriff has said that it will have to wait and see if a jury decides to convict Mr. Dorr, but they've built a case against him in the meantime.

  22. Denver Police Officers Not Allowed to Work Off-Duty at Pot Shops A departmental order issued by the Denver Police Department bans police officers from working as security guards at recreational marijuana shops in their 0ff-duty time. Denver police officers are allowed to work off-duty security jobs at venues such as bars and sporting events. Officers are paid about $45 per hour by the private businesses to stand as an armed guard. This allows businesses to offer a police presence but does not take away from city resources. However, department policy does prohibit officers from providing off-duty services to “any establishment which constitutes a threat to the status of dignity of the police as a professional occupation.” Recreational pot shops are considered by the Denver PD to fall under that category. “We’re going to do everything we can to make sure those businesses are safe, but we’re not going to work inside those businesses,” said Sonny Jackson, a department spokesman. “It’s a new industry, and we’re not sure what it’s going to entail.” The memo, delivered to all Denver PD sworn personnel, states, “This restriction prohibits officers from providing security at any such location and from providing security for the transportation of financial proceeds from any marijuana-related business. Officers can expect future revisions regarding policies pertaining to marijuana as the laws are developed and finalized.” Up until last week, Denver police had no written policy about secondary employment at medical marijuana businesses. The new regulations come as a result of the conflict between state and federal law. Police Union President Nick Rogers said, “Can you imagine a Denver cop in full uniform working at a marijuana store when the feds come and serve a search warrant?” Police will be on hand to help with crowd control when recreational marijuana shops begin to open next year, but do not expect to see them step foot inside a Denver pot shop.

  23. Marijuana Breathalyzer Close to Reality "If You Are Going to Get High, You Better Not Drive," or some other public service slogan will surely be plastered on billboards all across America as soon as science figures out a way to stick it to the average citizen with the marijuana breathalyzer. Ever since legalized recreational marijuana was made a reality last year by voters in Colorado and Washington, the powers that be have been brainstorming new ways in which to prosecute the legal marijuana user. Obviously, driving stoned is high on the list of no-nos. In fact, a team of researchers recently published a document in the medical journal Clinical Chemistry that suggests a breath test -- similar to the testing procedures for alcohol intoxication -- may be the best way for law enforcement to analyze a motorist’s THC level. Researchers believe that the breath method of testing could eventually phase out the controversial THC-blood test currently being used to prosecute people in courtrooms all over the country. Researchers say that in a study group consisting of everyday stoners and weekend warrior-style occasional smokers, they were able to detect levels of THC, the principle psychoactive cannabinoid in marijuana that would be most likely to affect the way a person drives, by collecting breath samples. What they found was that while every breath sample collected tested positive for THC almost immediately following the participant getting high, the only group to maintain a positive test after four hours were the everyday stoners. Interestingly, while 90% of the part-time smokers tested positive for THC within an hour of smoking, none of them tested positive after about 90 minutes. This means that a marijuana breathalyzer manufactured under these principles would only be effective for somewhere between 30 minutes to two hours immediately following a person’s participation in an old-fashioned toke and choke ritual. So far, the outcome of the study holds some good news for the occasional smoker, but how would a law enforcement device that measures THC levels affect the die-hard smoker chiefing it up on the regular? In its current form, the advent of the marijuana breathalyzer could prove extremely bad for the regular cannabis connoisseur because those people have the potential to test positive for THC after a week of abstinence -- sometimes longer depending on the body fat of the individual. Technically, the user could be more to stone-sober than stoned and still be arrested for driving under the influence. Without a doubt, more research is needed in order to properly determine marijuana intoxication levels in this manner. “Breath may offer an alternative matrix for testing for recent driving under the influence of cannabis, but is limited to a short detection window,” researchers concluded in their study titled “Cannabinoids in Exhaled Breath following Controlled Administration of Smoked Cannabis.
  24. Wendy’s Employee Gets Fired for Serving Weed Burger 32-year-old Wendy’s employee Amy Seiber was arrested and fired from her job after a customer called 911, claiming she had found a half smoked blunt in her cheeseburger. The customer with the blunt burger called police, who went to the Wendy’s location where the burger was purchased. Seiber allegedly immediately admitted the blunt was hers. According to police, Seiber admitted to smoking marijuana on the job and having accidentally “misplaced” the blunt mid-burger. Siber was promptly fired and arrested for possession of marijuana. The customer who received the burger said she experienced food-poisining-like symptoms and was hospitalized. She said that Wendy’s offered to pay her medical bills and gave her a $50 gift certificate to the fast food chain. A rep for Wendy’s said, “Obviously the employee broke the rules and did not follow proper food handling steps … We are deeply sorry that this incident occurred.” [Source]
  25. JACKSON, MI – Jackson law enforcement and city officials have a plan to enforce a new marijuana ordinance that they believe falls within the spirit of the law. A law passed in November via a 2,242-1,434 vote decriminalizes up to an ounce of marijuana on private property for those age 21 and older within the city. Jackson Police Chief Matthew Heins said the city police department has advised its officers to follow the new law. "First and foremost, it was my objective to enforce what voters voted on," Heins said. "We struggled with some details in the law, but it's the law." Some of the subjects in the law Heins and others debated were what constitutes private property. "Target is private property, for example," Heins said. "But we don't think it was the public's intention to allow a 21-year-old to possess marijuana at your local Target." The proposal changed the city's code of ordinances to read "none of the provisions of this division shall apply to the use, possession or transfer of less than 1 ounce of marijuana on private property by a person who has attained the age of 21 years." Heins said it's unclear whether people will be allowed to sell marijuana on private property under the new law. "We haven't come up with all the answers," he said. Jackson County Prosecutor Jerry Jarzynka said his office will continue to prosecute state law violations as they always have. "If city police bring a warrant request over a state law we will review it," he said. "The reality is federal and state laws still supersede city ordinances." Heins said JPD officers will still be allowed to enforce state statutes regarding marijuana, but will have to justify their actions and "keep in mind the voice of the people." "If we have known drug dealer with multiple convictions who has one ounce or less, there's a chance we'll still enforce state law," Heins said. "There will always be extenuating circumstances." http://www.mlive.com/news/jackson/index.ssf/2013/12/jackson_police_officials_say_t.html
