LAS VEGAS -- The Nevada State Athletic Commission suspended UFC welterweight Nick Diaz for five years on Monday because of the third marijuana-related offense of his career.

The NSAC discussed a lifetime ban for Diaz, 32, before voting unanimously on five years.

NSAC commissioner Skip Avansino acknowledged during deliberations a five-year ban is essentially "a lifetime (ban) for (Diaz)."

Diaz (26-9) appeared before the commission in person but declined to answer any of its questions. Commissioner Pat Lundvall forced Diaz to verbally plead the fifth throughout a long series of approximately 30 questions.

DEA Agents Impersonating Medical Board Investigators To Gain Access To Personal Health Records

I deal with information security quite a bit at my cubicle job. I don’t know everything there is to know about information security, but one thing that I know for sure is that medical records have a heightened level of protection. I think that is common knowledge by now. Personal health records are not public records, and only people that qualify for that information are allowed to access it. That is, unless you are a DEA agent. Per Watch Dog:

Instead, the agents are tricking doctors and nurses into thinking they’re with the Texas Medical Board. When that doesn’t work, they’re sending doctors subpoenas demanding medical records without court approval.

The DEA can’t even count how many times it has resorted to the practice nationwide. A spokesman estimated it was in the thousands.

But, as a legal brief filed last week points out, lawyers for the federal government can’t find a single case in which a court has “authorized the use of such a broad array of patient information with such a sparse record as to why it needs such information.”

Obviously these DEA agents are just fishing for information, otherwise they would have warrants signed by judges that would allow them to legally obtain this information. This is yet another example of the DEA doing what it wants, regardless of what the rules are. The DEA needs to be de-funded and shut down immediately. By their own admission, they don’t even know how many times they have done this, just that it’s likely ‘in the thousands.’ That’s clearly unacceptable.



Group Proposes Changes to MMJ Law in NYC, Offering Weed for $1 Gram

The half-assed nature of the medical marijuana program that New York promises to have up and running at the beginning of 2016 isn’t enough to appease the majority of patients who will suffer a lack of access under the state’s heavily regulated scheme.

To combat this injustice, a group of disgruntled patients have reportedly drafted a piece of legislation aimed at tearing down the walls that make the Compassionate Care Act so restrictive and, in a lot of ways, worthless to the thousands of patients living in New York City that could benefit from the use of this medicine.

This band of average citizens has proposed a “medical marihuana users’ bill of rights,” in addition to requesting the support of the city council in backing the creation of a co-op system that would serve patients with various ailments, including those that do not fall under the state’s list of qualified conditions. The state’s current plan only allows patients suffering from 10 “severe, debilitating, or life threatening” conditions to receive a recommendation for medical marijuana.

“The law and the regulations don’t cover people who are [also] legitimate patients,” Dana Beal, one of the authors of the bill, told the Village Voice. “We believe that under home rule, we can extend better availability and better prices to more people."
