Infant Dies After Being Removed From Cannabis Smoking Biological Parents

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, October, 13th 2014 by THCFinder
infant-diesWarning; This story is extremely upsetting and may trigger extreme emotions, especially since the situation that this tragedy occured in could've been prevented many times. Please prepare yourself.
 
Colorado is the last place that you would expect a child to be taken from biological parental care because of marijuana use. But unfortunately, due to the negativity associated with cannabis and people's utter ignorance, it does happen. As in the case of baby Angel Lane, an eleven month old that was taken from her parents after her parents were found to be arguing and her father admitted to smoking cannabis. According to recent statistics and studies released, homes that involve cannabis users are actually less likely to be homes with domestic violence problems. Angel being removed should have been the last step in the process and only if the child was in actual harm (she wasn't).
 
The foster mother, 20 year old Sydney Danielle White, is married to the brother of Angel's mother. While the child was in her care and papers were being processed for White to adopt the child, White reportedly shook the baby girl when she wouldn't stop crying. After gripping her by the throat and dropping the small child, White only stopped when her biological 2 year old came in to the room and begged her to stop. White put the infant in her crib and left her alone. When someone tried to wake the baby, she wouldn't respond and stopped moving on the entire right side of her body. Angel was taken to St. Mary's Hospital on the 16th of September and then air lifted to Denver Children's Hospital. After being taken off life support, this little baby left this world on September 17th, 2014.
 
Angel was taken from her biological parents after Theodore Place, the father, admitted to human services that he smoked marijuana. The parents were allegedly fighting and this admittance to using the plant was enough for human services to intervene in the family's life and take the infant away, giving her to a too young foster mother (According to Colorado law, a foster parent must be over the age of 21 to legally foster a child and White, 20, obviously didn't meet that requirement). During the separation from their daughter, the Place's assumed that their daughter was safe, especially since White is married to a family member.
 
But the home that Angel went to wasn't screened properly, as you can clearly see, even though the biological parents were under the impression that the home had been looked over by human services. Tierra, Angel's mother, said that her brother checked in with her every day about Angel and the brother said that the baby was developing in a healthy manner. Tierra's statement to a local news station is heartbreaking, saying "This is like losing her twice. I don't know how someone could possibly do that to a baby... Inside I know she is walking with god."

Marijuana Cause Of NASCAR Death?

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, October, 10th 2014 by THCFinder
nascar-death-blaming-marijuanaWhen you think of cannabis, you don't exactly think of people losing all common sense and doing something completely and utterly irrational. Sure, sometimes people freak out and call the cops. But that's not the worst thing in the world. What is pretty bad is the NASCAR incident that happened on August 9th, involving 20-year-old Kevin Ward Jr. and internationally known racer Tony Stewart.
 
When Stewart's car bumped in to Ward's during a race at Canandaigua Motorsports Park in upstate New York, Ward was hurled in to the wall but remained unhurt. He then emerged from his car and walked down the still live race track (the caution had been thrown out), waving his arms in an apparent attempt to confront the driver that had just sent him tumbling in to the wall. Ward was then struck by the rear tire of Stewart's car and was thrown in to the air. He died of blunt force trauma from the incident.
 
When the case finally went to trial, the grand jury decided to not indict Stewart and the county attorney revealed a shocking piece of information that of course, will negatively effect the cannabis community because someone will obviously take it the wrong way. R. Michael Tantillo released the bit of information that Ward was apparently high on cannabis when he died. Tantillo said that Ward was high enough "to impair judgment".
 
Now as stated above, one doesn't exactly get stoned and walk down a live racetrack. No matter how high you are, the probability of this happening is very slim. Not only that but a stoned NASCAR driver obviously wouldn't be toking before an important race if he wasn't experienced in the world of high driving. Those cars cost millions of dollars and the sponsorships are worth just as much. Though Ward may have been stoned at his time of death, it's much more likely that the reason he got out of his car to confront Stewart was one of saving face, plus a surge of pure adrenaline/testosterone.

Recent Poll Shows Alaska Marijuana Legalization Winning By Large Margin

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, October, 10th 2014 by THCFinder
alaska-marijuana-legalization-winningAlaska voters will be voting on marijuana legalization next month, along with Oregon and Washington D.C.. While case law makes marijuana legal in Alaska already, it’s far from the legalization model that is in place in Washington and Colorado where consumers can go into a store and buy marijuana for recreational purposes. Most polls that I have seen out of Alaska have shown the initiative barely winning, or even losing. However, those polls were flawed for several reasons. The most recent poll shows the initiative winning, and by a large margin. Per AmandaCoyne.Com:
 
According to a question on a poll conducted by local pollster Ivan Moore, Ballot Measure 2, which would tax and regulate marijuana like alcohol, is winning in the state by about 18 percentage points, 57.2 percent to 38.7 percent. The question about the measure was paid for by the group working to legalize pot in Alaska, and was asked as part of a larger poll that Moore was conducting. The sample size was 568 likely voters, and was conducted Sept. 26-30. The margin of error is 4.1 percent. (I’m waiting for the complete demographics.)
 
Taylor Bickford, who’s running the legalization campaign, said that the numbers seem a little optimistic to him. Older internal polls showed the campaign winning, but by a slimmer margin, he said. However, the poll is significant in that it’s the first public poll that asks the question exactly as it will appear on the ballot. A highly touted August PPP poll which showed the measure losing messed up the wording in the question. Further, the PPP poll didn’t call cell phones, which are a key demographic in this race.
 
This is great news for marijuana reform in Alaska and for the nation. Every state that legalizes marijuana builds momentum for other states to legalize, and eventually, for the entire country to legalize at the federal level. I’m very hopeful that we will see Oregon, Washington D.C., and Alaska all pass marijuana legalization next month. If you are able to do so, I urge you to donate to the Alaska campaign as they try to make their final push to get their message out to voters.
