Do Cops Have To Return Medical Marijuana Plants That They Take?
Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, July, 7th 2014 by THCFinder
I have many friends who have had run ins with law enforcement which resulted in law enforcement taking their medical marijuana plants. When the cases went to trial, most of these friends were acquitted of all charges. In the process, the plants that were torn out by their roots had long since died. There are cases of this happening in almost every medical marijuana state in America.
The victims who had their medical marijuana plants wrongfully confiscated have the right to sue to get their property back, and if it’s damaged or destroyed, to sue for damages. Per the Green Field Reporter:
Whether or not state laws require, as they do in Colorado, police to return medical marijuana intact if a suspect isn’t charged or is acquitted, departments have been sued over pot that has wilted in their evidence lockers.
In Colorado Springs, a cancer patient who had faced drug charges is suing police after 55 dead plants were returned to him. The state appeals court had to order the police to return them.
Medical dispensary owner Alvida Hillery sued police to return her 604 pot plants or pay $3.3 million after she was acquitted of drug-cultivation charges. She dropped the suit in exchange for a city dispensary license.
Police departments who take first and ask questions later should be held accountable. Taking finished product is one thing – it can be given back after trial. However, taking living, breathing plants should be a last resort, and if the cops can’t keep them alive, they shouldn’t be taken at all. It’s very difficult to put a price tag on a medical marijuana plant, so restoring the confiscation victim to where they were prior to destroying the plants is very difficult.

Raleigh NC Passes CBD Oil Bill

Epilepsy is a terrible affliction, especially for those who suffer and are children. The amount of seizures that a child can have a day can seriously stunt the growth of the brain and development, leaving young kids unable to hold up their own heads, eat on their own, walk, or function in any way. With harsh medicine and sometimes even animal tranquilizers, it's shocking that a natural medicine like cannabis would be looked over, simply because of some negative nonsense. The plant could help hundreds of thousands of people to cope with the sadness of dealing with epilepsy.
For those who follow my Instagram, you'll know that I'm currently writing from the city of Raleigh, located in North Carolina. So you can only imagine the goofy smile on my face when I stumbled across the article stating that Gov. Pat McCrory signed the bill, allowing epileptic patients to get CBD oil in order to treat the disorder. The North Carolina Senate unanimously voted on House Bill 1220. The bill states that hemp oil extract is now to be considered legal and regulated when a patient has tried three or more treatments and failed to respond. The oil that has been approved is derived from the Charlotte's Web strain, developed for this specific purpose of treating epilepsy in children. The strain is very low in THC but extremely high in CBD, the substance that cannabis contains that has been proven to decrease seizures to the point where the child can function normally and be almost seizure free.
The State Representative that suggested the bill, Pat McElraft, introduced the legislation (named "Hope 4 Haley and Friends") says that the bill isn't going to legalize medical marijuana. Instead, this bill is directed at the children who suffer. McElraft stated that, "This is only a medicine for these children so that they can develop motor skills." The Department of Health and Human Services has until October 1st to set up temporary rules regarding the registration cards for the use of the oil, as well as a database of registered caregivers, patients, and neurologists that recommend the treatment.
Dear Washington, Expect Shortages On July 7th

Colorado has their legal weed model set up and already rolling. Washington kind of fell behind, putting off letting the plant take over legally. They said that they would release the cannabis this summer and thankfully, that day is almost here. However, Washington is beginning to expect problems with the release of the legal weed due to an extremely high demand and a very small supply.
Washington passed their legal weed law around the same time that Colorado did, granting residents only the option to purchase weed legally in the minuscule 15-20 shops that have been granted their licenses to sell marijuana recreationally. With such a small number of shops in the state, the demand is going to severely outweigh the supply, creating a problem with revenue for those who were planning on making a lot of money from opening day, much like Colorado. This small amount of shops really lucked out, being drawn out of a lottery of 334 shops requesting to open in the state of Washington on July 7th of this year.
The shop Cannabis City, which is located at Fourth Ave South and South Lander Street, is seriously worried about their supply. The shop will only have ten pounds of marijuana available when the doors open and with prices ranging from $15-$20, they're expecting to run out of products by the end of the day. Other stores are worrying the same thing, including the shops in Bellevue and Des Moines. So if you are in Washington state and are planning on purchasing legal weed on July 7th, it's definitely recommended that you arrive early in order to get your hands on some bud before it disappears.
