Colombia Legalizes Medical Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, December, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

colombiaMedical marijuana reform is spreading all over the world. The latest example of that is the nation of Colombia. Today the President of Colombia, Juan Manuel Santos, signed a decree that legalized medical marijuana. This is huge news for the suffering patients of Colombia, and also is big news for other reform efforts in other nations, as it will increase the momentum of reform. Per Yahoo News:

In a nationally televised address, Santos announced it would be fully legal to grow, process, import and export cannabis and its derivatives for medical and scientific use.

“This decree allows licenses to be granted for the possession of seeds, cannabis plants and marijuana,” he said from the presidential palace.

“It places Colombia in the group of countries that are at the forefront… in the use of natural resources to fight disease.”

Medical marijuana has been operating in a legal gray area in Colombia, with no real regulations. That changed with this decree, which allows people to apply for licenses to grow medical marijuana, and people can even apply to export medical marijuana to other countries where it’s legal. I had a long discussion with Robert Platshorn about Colombian marijuana recently, and he said it’s good stuff. Robert was convicted of smuggling over three million pounds of marijuana from Colombia decades ago, so I’ll take his word for it. Colombia has the potential to become a very large supplier of medical marijuana to the world.

Kansas Couple Whose Tea Was Mistaken for Marijuana Loses Lawsuit

Category: News | Posted on Wed, December, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

Last week, a federal judge in Kansas ruled against a couple whose home was raided in 2012 in an unsuccessful "SWAT-style" search for marijuana. 

According to Reason.com, U.S. District Judge John Lungstrum said that police acted "legally and reasonably in planning and conducting the fruitless raid on the home of Robert and Adlynn Harte, former CIA agents whose children were 7 and 13 at the time."

The family was held at gunpoint for over two hours while Johnson County sheriff's deputies ransacked their house, finding nothing and refusing to say why they thought the Hartes were growing marijuana. 

The couple reportedly spent a year and $25,000 in legal fees to find out what "probable cause" police had to support a search warrant.

Pittsburgh decriminalizes pot possession

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, December, 22nd 2015 by THCFinder

Pittsburgh City Council is ending its 2015 legislative session on a high note, having voted Monday morning to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana within city limits.

Council voted 7-2 in favor of a bill, sponsored by Councilman Daniel Lavelle, that allows police to levy a fine of up to $100 against anyone possessing up to 30 grams of marijuana or 8 grams of hashish. In the case of minors, parents or guardians will be notified of the offense and must pay the fine.

Supporters say that’s better than charging suspects with a misdemeanor criminal offense, which can saddle defendants with a potentially job-killing rap sheet and burden police with paperwork.

Mayor Bill Peduto has pledged to sign the bill: A spokesman called it “a common-sense change that will help protect the futures of young people.”

Patrick Nightingale, a marijuana reform activist, hailed the measure, which is similar to a Philadelphia ordinance passed in 2014. The legislation “will protect Pittsburghers of all colors and all ages from unwarranted and unnecessary police interactions, and it will help police more efficiently utilize limited resources,” he said.
