Category: News | Posted on Mon, June, 13th 2011 by THCFinder
More tax payer money going down the drain for stupid arrests like these.
The Money Making Jam Boys rappers were released earlier this morning after policemen found marijuana in their vehicle.
Money Making Jam Boys members Dice Raw and Truck North were arrested in New Jersey last night for marijuana possession.
After leaving an interview at Sirius Satellite radio in New York City, New York, the two were driving on Route 1 in the Garden State when cops pulled them over. Upon approaching the vehicle, the policemen smelled marijuana emitting from the car and found a small amount of weed upon searching the ride. Both rappers were arrested and released earlier this morning.


Could Utah be the next state to approve Medical Marijuana?

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, June, 13th 2011 by THCFinder

Finally someone who see's the light at the end of the tunnel!

Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff said he would support the legalization of medical marijuana after experiencing months of intensive cancer treatment.

"Until you've experienced chemo, you can't describe exactly how it feels," he said Thursday on KSL Newsradio's Doug Wright Show. "It's kind of like having the flu because you ache all over. But it's worse than that... Everything feels awful."

Shurtleff said it would be possible to control and regulate marijuana just like any other prescription medication, comparing it to the highly-addictive "liquid opium" he had been prescribed. Although he supported the use of marijuana for medical purposes, he criticized other states, like Colorado, for having laws that were too lax.
"We can use these medicines," he added. "We can use them appropriately. So I am open to discussions about it, if it can be controlled."


Mile High Cannabis is Cool in Canada

Category: Fun | Posted on Mon, June, 13th 2011 by THCFinder

Apparently joining the MILE HIGH club now has a double meaning attached to it...

"At various times, cardholders have been hassled going through security, as CATSA (Canadian Air Transport Security Authority) agents haven't been trained to recognize either the MMAR card or paper licenses. The old policy stood that even if the cannabis is legal, if it's found amongst your carry-on items, a report would have to be made, sometimes involving police stationed in the airport – and it could take up to a good twenty minutes to work through the process."

After taking up her complaint with CATSA mamakind quickly heard back from them.
A CATSA representative informed her that the policy is indeed changing and that a memo to that effect will be circulated nationwide within the month. This memo/newsletter will explain to CATSA agents about the new policy of recognizing MMAR cards/paper licenses (pictures of the cards will be provided to them) and explain that filing a report when they come across one isn't necessary.
So its OK for license cannabis users to take their weed and their vaporizer to the airport. Now for the $64,000 dollar question. 
"Could I vape on the plane itself?" Mamakind asked the airline she would use for the outward leg of the journey, WestJet .
"I explained what a vaporizer is used for and how it works and after checking with a supervisor, she confirmed that as long as the device was battery-operated (there are no plugs on WestJet planes and you can't burn butane on them, either) and I was using it during the times when I would normally be able to use an electronic device (not during take-off or landing), I was free to medicate as needed."
"Once on the plane and in the air, the NO2 vaporizer was packed with the much-needed AK47 and I was able to periodically relieve my nausea throughout the over-three-hour flight, becoming the first person to legally and openly vape on a plane. I suppose high at 30,000+ feet is about as high as anyone's ever gotten on a commercial airline without medibles."


Medical Marijuana Law Doesn't Trump Employers Drug Policy

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, June, 10th 2011 by THCFinder
It turns out that smoking weed legally for medical purposes can still be illegal.
Washington state’s Supreme Court upheld a Colorado company’s decision to fire a woman for failing a required drug test due to pot use, even though she had a valid medical marijuana prescription, the Seattle Times reported.
The employee – who sued under the pseudonym Jane Roe – worked for TeleTech Customer Care and was fired in October of 2006 after a week of training. TeleTech, which performs the customer service for Sprint, had a contract with the telecommunications company that required drug testing of all employees, with no exception for medical marijuana use.
The 8-1 decision issued Thursday declared that the state medical marijuana law did not necessarily require employers to accommodate use of the drug outside the work environment; although the law allows employers to ban on-site use of the drug, it remains tacit about regulating the drug’s use in other contexts.
The court also ruled that the state’s Human Rights Commission, which handles employee discrimination cases, cannot look into claims involving medical marijuana use because it is still illegal at the federal level.
Justice Tom Chambers, the one dissenting vote, argued that voters, in supporting the 1998 law, intended for it to protect those patients with valid prescriptions. The majority decision, he wrote, “jeopardizes the clear policy” of the law by discouraging others from gaining valid prescriptions for fear of retribution from employers, the Times reported.


Are you a RAT? Narcotics Detectives Turn to Public

Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 10th 2011 by THCFinder
Another waste of Tax payers hard earned money.....
In hopes of cracking down on illegal outdoor marijuana growers in Santa Barbara County, Sheriff’s Narcotics detectives are turning to the public for assistance. The Narcotics Division has received a federal grant to help it fund the production and distribution of fliers encouraging the public to help law enforcement officers identify and report non-medical marijuana producers.
Last year alone, the Sheriff’s Office destroyed more than 325,000 marijuana plants with a street value of more than $900,000,000, said spokesperson Drew Sugars.
The fliers explain what signs to look for when identifying someone who may be using forest or private land to cultivate marijuana. It is the hope of the detectives that by creating the fliers, they will not only educate people about illegal marijuana operations, but also minimize the danger to citizens and reduce environmental damage that can be attributed to unlawful marijuana growth.


CT Senate decriminalizes marijuana possession

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, June, 10th 2011 by THCFinder
Afer five hours of debate, on Tuesday Connecticut became the 13th state in the Union to decriminalize marijuana. The state’s House of Representatives passed new legislation and Governor Dan Malloy is expected to sign off on it.
The House voted 90 to 57 in favor of SB 1014.
According to the new rules first-time offenders caught in possession of less than a half-ounce of pot will be hit with a 150 ticket; repeat offenders would get at least $200 but a maximum of 500 per offense. If you're under 21, you'll get a two-month suspension of your driver's license.
"Final approval of this legislation accepts the reality that the current law does more harm than good — both in the impact it has on people’s lives and the burden it places on police, prosecutors and probation officers of the criminal justice system," Malloy said in the statement.
State Sen. Toni Boucher (R-Wilton) in a statement on her website said that decriminalization sends the wrong message to the state's youth about the risks of marijuana use.
“What kind of message does this send to our children?” Senator Boucher said in the statement. “This law undermines a fundamental lesson that our schools, social service programs and parents teach our children: that taking drugs is bad for you.”
Connecticut's non-partisan Office of Fiscal Analysis however estimates the bill will save the state nearly $1 million in court costs and attorney salaries and net upwards of $1.4 million in new fines and fees.
