Man sues Border Patrol over right to carry medical marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Wed, December, 2nd 2015 by THCFinder

LAS CRUCES - A Deming man is suing the U.S. Border Patrol, alleging agents are failing to adhere to a new rule that allow him to carry medical marijuana without risking federal charges.

Raymundo Marrufo, who participates in New Mexico's medical marijuana program, filed the lawsuit Monday in federal court seeking an injunction against the U.S. Border Patrol in connection with questions the agency poses to travelers at border checkpoints.

Marrufo's attorney, Jason Flores-Williams, writes that Marrufo must routinely travel from Deming to Las Cruces to obtain medical cannabis, which requires passing through a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint on Interstate 10 on his return trip. Federal agents ask him whether he has any illegal drugs — posing a dilemma for Marrufo because marijuana is still a controlled substance under federal law.

"If Marrufo answers 'yes,' he is a drug smuggler subject to felony indictment," the court complaint states.

But if Marrufo answers "no," he could be guilty of lying to a federal agent, according to court records.

How To Get Senior Citizens To Vote For Marijuana Reform

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, December, 2nd 2015 by THCFinder

robert platshorn silver tour washington dc rally event seniors senior citizensStatistically speaking, senior citizens are the most likely demographic to oppose marijuana reform. That’s a big problem when you also consider the fact that senior citizens vote at a higher rate than anyone else. Whenever I look at polling for certain campaign efforts, I always look at the senior citizen polling first. I always sit and daydream about how easy it would be to end marijuana prohibition in state after state if the marijuana reform movement was able to get even a small percentage of those ‘no’ senior citizen voters to change to the ‘yes’ side.

It seems like so many campaigns, organizations, and reform efforts quickly disregard the senior citizen demographic, as if it’s just hopeless and no one should even try to change seniors’ minds. A truly comprehensive campaign strategy (or awareness strategy leading up to the launch of a campaign) would have a plan in place to reach seniors. If only there was an easy way to do that…

Insert Robert Platshorn, and The Silver Tour. Robert Platshorn is probably the most dynamic public speaker I have ever seen from the marijuana movement, and maybe anywhere else. I first heard him speak at the 2012 High Times Medical Cannabis Cup in Los Angeles. Within seconds of grabbing the microphone on a panel dealing with reform efforts, the entire crowd (including and especially myself) was captivated and hanging on his every word. He has a way of putting some amazing humor together with cannabis reform educational facts that leave you always wanting more.

I don’t think that’s a coincidence, because Robert Platshorn was one of, if not the, original pitchman (feel free to factcheck). Whether he was the first or not is irrelevant, because he is definitely a stellar public speaker regardless. Jay Smoker and I have always wondered why every campaign and organization in America doesn’t swoop him up and put him on a senior citizen center tour across America. Imagine how many minds would be changed?

Marijuana Is the Most Popular Drug on the Planet, Time to Make it Legal

Category: News | Posted on Wed, December, 2nd 2015 by THCFinder

Although much of the world’s leadership continues to treat marijuana as though it is a parasite attacking the delicate moral fiber of civil society, a new interactive drug map suggests that very few are still buying into the propaganda behind antiquated drug policies, giving way to a worldwide revolution.

Compiled using the latest United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime report, addiction treatment group Recovery Brands has scrawled a unique portrait of the world’s grips with illicit substances, which indicates that marijuana is the most commonly used substance on the planet. 

Snuffing out dangerous drugs like prescription painkillers, it seems that most people across the globe would simply rather smoke weed than indulge in dope. However, as the report points out, the scourge of opioid addiction is far from under control.

“Although opioids are the most treated drug in the world, they are not the most consumed,” the report reads. “With only a few exceptions, marijuana is every country’s top drug by the proportion of users.”
