Formal complaints have been filed in federal court against the Michigan State Police Crime Laboratory by criminal defense attorneys who want an independent investigation into the lab’s practices and policies. A series of emails, revealed by FOIA request, illuminate the lab’s “abhorrent and illegal” compromise of scientific method to alter test results from marijuana products in a way that favors prosecutors- changes that were initiated by state drug task forces and the Prosecuting Attorneys Association of Michigan.

“Our formal letter of complaint is intended to launch a serious and objective review of practices of the Crime Lab by the National Institute of Justice,” said Neil Rockind of Southfield, Michigan’s Rockind Law in a press release jointly issued with Michael Komorn of Southfield’s Komorn Law.

The letter was filed with the Director of the National Institute of Justice, Office of Investigative and Forensic Sciences in Washington, D.C. It specifically cites “negligence and incompetence resulting in Crime Lab findings, integrity and reliability that are in serious doubt,” the press release revealed.

Attorney Michael Nichols of the Nichols Law Firm from East Lansing, Michigan, also filed a letter of complaintwith the same agency on the same day, December 22.

DNC Chair Accepts Huge Donations from Alcohol PACs, Claims Pot Is a Gateway Drug

Category: News | Posted on Sat, January, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

In an interview with the New York Times Magazine, U.S. Representative for Florida and head of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, said she opposed legalization of marijuana and called it a gateway drug.

“I don’t oppose the use of medical marijuana," she said. "I just don’t think we should legalize more mind-altering substances if we want to make it less likely that people travel down the path toward using drugs. We have had a resurgence of drug use instead of a decline. There is a huge heroin epidemic.”

Considering that there is a known correlation (one acknowledged by the U.S. government) between heroin addiction and the over-prescription of opiate painkillers, such as Oxycontin, it seems odd that Schultz is resorting to false equivalencies by equating opiates and pot.

Gary Johnson Announces Bid for Presidency, Says Marijuana Advocates Do Not Equal Political Benefits

Category: Politics | Posted on Fri, January, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

With a belief that marijuana should be made legal at the federal level, Gary Johnson, the former governor of New Mexico who became the Libertarian Party’s presidential nominee back in 2012, has made the decision to resign from his position as CEO with a major medical marijuana corporation in an effort to make another bid for the White House in 2016.

It was during an appearance on Fox Business earlier this week when Johnson, who is now 63-years-old, told host Neil Cavuto that he was once again seeking the nomination from the Libertarian Party. Just days before, it was revealed in a press release that Johnson was stepping down as the top dog at Cannabis Sativa, Inc to pursue “political opportunities.”

Some of the latest financial data reveals the company’s stocks have been sinking since March 2015, which may have had some influence on Johnson’s decision to jump ship and get back into politics.
