Idaho Moms For Marijuana’s New Year’s Smokeout

Category: News | Posted on Mon, December, 28th 2015 by THCFinder

On January 1st, 2016, at 4pm, we will gather on the Idaho State Capitol steps and peacefully assemble to celebrate the New Year by using our constitutionally protected voices to demand reform of Idaho’s outdated marijuana laws.

This will be an act of civil disobedience, and we will light up at 4:20pm in protest of Idaho’s current policies, asking the question once again…”WHO ARE WE HURTING?”

Please bring a protest sign demanding reform of Marijuana Laws in Idaho! And BYOB (Bring Your Own Bud)

As always, this is an opportunity to sign New Approach Idaho’s Medical Marijuana Petition. www.LegalizeIdaho.com

Participation in acts of civil disobedience are not required to attend.

As with all events, all families are welcome. However, for safety concerns (regarding police & Child Protective Services, not the marijuana), we suggest that you leave your minor children at home.

**Dress Warmly & Don’t Forget Your Gloves!

Medical marijuana's big business lures ex-law enforcers in Illinois

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, December, 28th 2015 by THCFinder

With fewer than 4,000 approved patients, the nascent medical marijuana business in Illinois is off to a slow start. Yet it hasn't kept away a cadre of cannabis entrepreneurs who once relied on guns, badges, tough drug laws and lengthy prison sentences to fight the drug.

While neither state regulators nor the medical marijuana industry track the number of employees who were former law enforcement officials, The Associated Press has identified no fewer than 17 in Illinois, many of whom have outsized influence — from a trustee of the state's chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police to one-time undercover narcotics officers.

"Who better would you want to oversee your compliance than a cop?" said Scott Abbott, a retired Illinois State Police colonel paid to help a company adhere to the state's strict laws and regulations at two dispensaries.

Marijuana Decriminalization In Texas’ Most Populous County Begins Friday

Category: News | Posted on Mon, December, 28th 2015 by THCFinder

texas norml region conference marijuana cannabisHarris County is Texas’ most populous county, and is the third most populous county in all of America. There are an estimated 4.337 (2013) million people in Harris County, Texas. To put that into perspective, there are less than 4 million people in the entire state of Oregon. Starting Friday, marijuana will be decriminalized for all first time offenders that are caught with up to two ounces of marijuana, per the directive of Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson.

The public policy mandate is an expansion of the ‘First Chance Intervention Program’ which was introduced by DA Anderson in 2014. Up until this point, the program has been up to the officer’s discretion, which has resulted in a 22% referral rate to the program. Starting Friday, 100% of cases that fit the program’s criteria will be referred to it. Per Houston Public Media:

 

“If it’s offered at the pre-arrest stage, it frees up space in jail,” Anderson said. “It minimizes the administrative burdens that officers face when they file charges; it reduces the cost for prosecution and court proceedings; and of course it gives the offender an opportunity to have a completely clean record.”

Data provided by the district attorney’s office show more than 90 percent of those who took advantage of the program did not re-offend – a much better recidivism rate than for those who were charged.

“And after I saw these, I said, hey, let’s look at what the recidivism rate would be for a second offender or a third offender,” Anderson said. “So we’re going to look at that.”
