WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A medical marijuana advocate who at least temporarily lost custody of her 11-year-old son following comments he made during a drug education program at school now faces criminal charges.

The Finney County Attorney's office announced Friday that 37-year-old Shona Banda faces five criminal counts related to the March 24 incident: distribution or possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of school property; unlawful manufacture of a controlled substance, tetrahydrocannabinol; possession of drug paraphernalia; and endangering a child.

The divorced Garden City mother sparked a conversation on social media after going public with her story. Her attorney, Sarah Swain, did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment.

Banda is a motivational speaker and author of a book "Live Free or Die: Reclaim your Life ... Reclaim your Country!" that recounts her use of concentrated cannabis oil to treat Crohn's Disease.

In the news release announcing the charges, the county attorney's office noted it is illegal in Kansasto use or possess marijuana and its derivatives as well as to manufacture those drugs for personal use or otherwise.

What '60 Minutes' Didn't Tell You About Legalized Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Mon, June, 8th 2015 by THCFinder

On Sunday night, ’60 Minutes’ revisited a story it had previously aired on the state of Colorado’s legalized marijuana industry, going back to the state in order to get an update. The story gave a great broad overview of the industry, but by trying to cover so many parts of this business, many things were missed.


The ’60 Minutes’ piece, called ‘Colorado Pot,’ noted that it isn’t easy to make money in legalized marijuana, but then like most of these general stories, zoomed in on the giant safe full of cash. The public assumes that because these businesses are awash in cash that they are profitable. That isn’t necessarily the case. The story did touch on the seed-to-sale software, but didn’t note that for the huge warehouse full of plants featured in the story, the software company could be charging anywhere from $0.25 to $0.45 an RFID or bar-code. These bar-codes can’t be reused and a big warehouse like the one on the show that is growing thousands of plants is spending thousands for inventory tracking.


The show was accurate in describing the difficulty these business owners face in finding a bank. Most of the major banks will not service these customers and some of the state chartered banks that were stepping in are now pulling back. First, they are concerned about the new Attorney General Loretta Lynch who is not for legalization. Secondly, it’s expensive for the banks to handle these customers. The amount of employees required to fill out all the paperwork to keep the banks in compliance make these money losing customers. The banks have to fill out SARS paperwork or Suspicious Activity Reports on the accounts. This takes people and time and while these businesses may be swimming in cash, it doesn’t pay off for the smaller banks. The big banks have said they won’t allow this type of banking until marijuana is no longer illegal at the Federal level.



Commerce Township Considers Marijuana Growing Restrictions

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, June, 8th 2015 by THCFinder

outdoor marijuana growingIn a pair of meetings on June 8 and 9, Commerce Township will consider to what degree they allow people to participate in the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act (MMMA) by considering an ordinance that would  restrict how and where patients can grow their marijuana.

Attorneys and activists alike are in an uproar over the proposed language.

The ordinance offers a unique and restrictive definition of who can grow and where it can be done. It also requires some unique security and monitoring standards that exceed any other measure currently in place in other cities.

To begin, the ‘Definitions’ section of the proposal contains provocative language. From the proposal:

Medical marijuana cultivation facility means a building where more than twelve (12) marijuana plants are being grown in compliance with the MMMA.

Medical marijuana dispensary means a building or part of a building where there is a transfer of marijuana between primary caregivers or between qualifying patients. This definition does not include a building in which the transfer of marijuana occurs between a primary caregiver and his or her qualifying patient.

Plant means any marihuana plant with not more than one readily observable root formation.
