OKLAHOMA Gov against Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, August, 5th 2011 by THCFinder
OKLAHOMA CITY — Gov. Mary Fallin shot down the idea of legalizing medicinal marijuana in Oklahoma during an online town hall forum on Thursday aired on the Oklahoma GOP's Facebook page.
 
Fallin, who is still hobbled by recent hip surgery, fielded questions posted to the page, many of which centered around the legalization of marijuana and the medicinal use of cannabis.
 
"I just cannot support legalizing marijuana in the state of Oklahoma," Fallin said. "I think it has too many risks associated with other substances."
 
Earlier this year, Fallin signed a bill that allows a sentence of up to life in prison for a first-time offense of cooking marijuana into hashish. She said she reviews hundreds of pardon and parole requests each month and estimated 90 percent of those criminals have struggled with substance abuse. She said many of those started by smoking marijuana.
 
"I see substance abuse as a major, major issue," she said.
 
A bill introduced in the Oklahoma Legislature earlier this year to allow for medicinal marijuana was never granted a hearing.
 
Fallin touted the legislative accomplishments of the most recent session, including pro-business changes to the workers' compensation and civil justice systems, shoring up the state's underfunded pension systems and making it easier to fire ineffective teachers.
 
She also said she would like to see further reductions to the state's income tax, but cautioned that any cuts would result in decreases of vital state services.
 
"I'd personally love to eliminate the personal income tax," said Fallin. "You can't just do that. We have other needs in the state."

Pair held in death of medical marijuana vendor killed in Long Beach

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 4th 2011 by THCFinder
LONG BEACH - A husband and wife have been arrested in the March 24 shooting death in Long Beach of a medical marijuana distributor.
 
On Tuesday, Marcel Mackabee was charged with one count of murder, and his wife, Rosemary Sayegh, was charged as an accessory in the killing of Philip Victor Williamson, police said.
 
Police said robbery was the motive for the killing of Williamson, whom they say may have had $500,000 and seven pounds of marijuana at the time of his death.
 
Police said more arrests were expected.
 
The couple, both from Granada Hills, were arrested over the weekend. Sayegh, 32, was arrested in Granada Hills while Mackabee, 29, was apprehended in Chico.
 
Mackabee is being held on $1 million bail and Sayegh on $500,000. Both are scheduled to return to Long Beach Superior Court on Tuesday.
 
The 29-year-old victim was gunned down in an alley off the 1500 block of Pine Avenue, police said.
 
Long Beach Police Department homicide detectives learned that the victim, who was from Los Angeles, delivered marijuana grown in Chico to clinics throughout the Los Angeles area.
 
Long Beach police said detectives believe the murder was orchestrated for the sole purpose of committing a robbery.
 
Neither the cash nor the marijuana that Williamson may have carried has been recovered.
 
Williamson was found by police about 10:30 p.m. on March 24 suffering from a gunshot wound to his upper body. He died the next evening from his injuries.
 
Long Beach officers traveled to Chico several times during their investigation to search for evidence, police said. That led to a tip that the victim was seen with a man in a black Toyota 4Runner around the time of his death.
 
Security footage from a Beverly Hills convenience store showed a man in a black sweatshirt and black pants making a purchase and leaving in a black Toyota 4Runner on the day Williamson was killed. A receipt from that store was found in the victim's home.
 
Police now say that man was Mackabee and the receipt was his.
 
In late July, detectives traveled to Chico and Granada Hills with search warrants and later made the arrests. The investigation is ongoing.
 
A $10,000 reward offered by the Los Angeles County Supervisor's Office has generated information, but detectives are still asking for the public's help.

Medical marijuana petitions rejected

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, August, 4th 2011 by THCFinder
Backers of a push to legalize medical marijuana in Ohio must head out and collect at least 1,000 more valid signatures after an initial batch of petitions didn't pass muster with the state, the Toledo Blade reports.
 
The Ohio Coalition for Medical Compassion submitted 2,143 signatures in order to get the language for the constitutional amendment before Attorney General Mike DeWine, but little more than 500 were valid. Should the group get 1,000 signatures, it must then have the petition language certified and then collect at least 385,245 more valid signatures to make the November 2012 ballot, the paper reported.
 
The so-called Ohio Alternative Treatment Amendment would decriminalize marijuana possession, delivery and cultivation when used for medical reasons and set standards for patient possession.

Brea Residents Protest City Bans On Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Thu, August, 4th 2011 by THCFinder
As California cracks down on medical marijuana dispensaries, advocates of the herb's health benefits protest. Brea's City Hall endured the wrath of about 30 medical marijuana supporters on Tuesday evening, objecting the city's mission to close down three local dispensaries, reports The OC Register. Protestors waved signs at traffic; one sign read "RESPECT STATE LAW."
 
The battle to shut down the dispensaries spans the last seven months and has reportedly cost the city about $350,000 in legal fees thus far.
 
"They are being frivolous by throwing money at this," said Al Gutierrez, 64. "The people at these dispensaries need it. It is a medicine."
 
Guiterrez is one of many patients who consumes cannabis for illness-related pain. Currently fighting prostate cancer, he is a retired computer programmer and Vietnam veteran. Guiterrez joined yesterday's protests.
 
Why shut down the clinics? Apparently, a city law bans medical marijuana dispensaries. Clinics argue that the city ban violates state law. In March a judge ordered the closure of all three dispensaries. The clinics declined to shut down, igniting further legal action.
 
"I am not happy about the $350,000, but if we had not pursued them aggressively, we might have 20 or more in the city and then we would have to fight them all," said Mayor Roy Moore in an interview today. "Then the bill would get even higher."
 
Brea resident Gail Anderson feels that the city is only damaging the local economy and forcing patients to travel longer distances for their medicine.
 
"I want to be able to get my medicine, and I want to feel safe when I get my medicine," she said. " This is my city, and I want to stay here and spend my money here."
