How Trump Can Deport a U.S. Teen for a Gram of Pot

Category: News | Posted on Sun, September, 17th 2017 by THCFinder

Luis Quintana Alvarez is an American. Of the 19 years he’s spent on earth, more than 18 of those have been in the United States, where he’s said the Pledge of Allegiance every day since kindergarten, after his family brought him and his sisters to live here when he was 11-months-old. The last five months, Alvarez has spent in jail, the pre-penalty for a gram of marijuana that police discovered on him a year ago. For this transgression, Alvarez is slated to be deported to Mexico, as the Des Moines Register reported.

What? Why? How?

The answer: MAGA.

Alvarez is yet another example of how, under the Trump administration, federal authorities are happily using the country’s warped marijuana laws—which are almost as abusive as our immigration policies—as a convenient tool to make peoples’ lives miserable.

Michigan to Pot Shops: Close by Dec. 15 or Risk Licensure

Category: News | Posted on Sat, September, 16th 2017 by THCFinder

BATH TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — The state of Michigan on Tuesday gave medical marijuana businesses until Dec. 15 to close or potentially risk not obtaining a license under a new regulatory system aimed at increasing oversight and imposing new taxes on the industry.

The decision means registered patients will have to grow their own pot or obtain it from caregivers — as allowed for under existing law — until the state issues the licenses, likely in the first quarter of next year. It will accept license applications starting Dec. 15.

After learning of the decision, a new state licensing board that met near Lansing on Tuesday, dropped a member’s proposal to tell shops they would not get a license if they stayed open beyond this Friday — which had been criticized by frustrated patients, shop owners and others. They expressed concern, however, with the new deadline as well, questioning how patients will find their marijuana.

Marijuana legalization has NOT led to more drug or alcohol abuse among young people

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sat, September, 16th 2017 by THCFinder

Cannabis activists proclaim the benefits of legal marijuana, while opponents suggest it will lead to increased drug abuse and crime. Turns out both groups may be wrong.

Liberalized marijuana laws appear to have little positive or negative impact, according to a new working paper by researchers from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Harvard University and Western Carolina University. In fact, more liberal marijuana laws have had “minimal impact” on marijuana use, other substance use, alcohol consumption or crime rates, the study found.

The paper, which was distributed by the National Bureau of Economic Research, based its findings on data from the annual surveys of high-school seniors conducted by Monitoring the Future, an ongoing study of American youth that began in 1975.
