Police say pizzeria was front for marijuana operation

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Police say a St. Paul pizzeria and ice cream parlor turned out to be a front for a marijuana trafficking business.


The investigation began last summer after a concerned citizen reported that Papa Dimitri's Classic Pizza and Ice Cream was rarely open and didn't seem to do much actual business. According to the criminal complaint, the employees there complained about a lack of heat, even though it had a pizza oven, and typically ate at nearby burger restaurant instead of at the pizzeria.


On Friday, Ramsey County authorities charged the owner, 32-year-old Ryan Dimitri Brooks Sr., his 61-year-old mother, his 82-year-old grandmother and his 24-year-old girlfriend with drug and firearms offenses.


Ryan Brooks declined to speak with police when he was arrested. It's not clear if he has an attorney.



25,000 Marijuana Seeds Given Out In Washington D.C.

marijuana seedsWashington D.C. voters approved marijuana legalization by a very large margin. Washington D.C. Initiative 71 passed during the 2014 Election by a margin of 70.06% ‘yes’ to 29.94% ‘no’. The initiative legalized marijuana possession and cultivation, but did not include a way to obtain marijuana from a store due to taxing and spending provisions that require Congressional approval. In order to help citizens of Washington D.C., the Initiative 71 campaign organized two marijuana seed giveaways last week, which was a tremendous success. Per WUSA9:

For the second time this week, people stood in line for free marijuana seeds

The line was even longer Saturday for folks wanting marijuana seeds than the first ‘seed share’ on Thursday. Thousands waited outside DC Cannabis Campaign headquarters for hours for a few seeds. People have never been so elated standing in the cold.

“Everyone is very happy to be here,” said Amy Dunham.

“We’re all getting along, all creeds and color,” added Patrick Mitchell

The line stretched several blocks along embassy row on Massachusetts Avenue NW for the historic marijuana seed share event.

In total, roughly 25,000 marijuana seeds were given out in Washington D.C.. D.C.’s marijuana legalization law allows people to give marijuana (seeds or otherwise) to other people, as long as no money changes hands. It still blows my mind to know that there are seeds and plants being cultivated all over our nation’s capital. These are truly exciting times in America, and it makes me very happy to see how far we have come. There is still a lot of work left to be done, but the success of the seed giveaways in D.C. is cause for celebration.



Pot Lawsuit Could Threaten Medical Marijuana Programs Across the Nation

DENVER (AP) -- States are free to legalize marijuana, Colorado argued Friday in a filing to the U.S. Supreme Court in response to a lawsuit from neighboring states that have asked the nation's highest court to shut down Colorado's pot law.

The filing marks the first time Colorado has defended legal marijuana in writing. The federal government did not sue to block the state's 2012 vote to legalize pot for all adults over 21.

Colorado said that Nebraska and Oklahoma should sue the federal government for not enforcing the Controlled Substances Act, not other states. Colorado said the states' "quarrel is not with Colorado but with the federal government's" approach to letting states experiment with pot law.

"Nebraska and Oklahoma filed this case in an attempt to reach across their borders and selectively invalidate state laws with which they disagree," Colorado argued.

Because federal drug law bans marijuana for any purpose, including medical, Colorado argues that blocking recreational pot would also block pot for medical use in 23 states and Washington, D.C.

"Congress has endorsed a policy, at least with respect to medical marijuana, supportive of state regulatory and licensure laws," Colorado wrote. "This suit threatens to upset those administrative and political decisions."

The U.S. Supreme Court has not said whether it will hear the challenge, and it has no deadline for doing so.

Colorado Republican Attorney General Cynthia Coffman opposes marijuana legalization, but she said the problem needs to be fixed by federal drug authorities. "This lawsuit ... won't fix America's national drug policy- at least not without leadership from Washington, D.C., which remains noticeably absent," Coffman said in a statement.
