United States Supreme Court Rejects Case Involving Life Sentence For Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Mon, April, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

Supreme Court marijuanaNo one should ever be locked in a cage because of marijuana. Not one day, and sure as hell not a life sentence. Yet, sadly, that is what is happening to people at this very moment. Marijuana opponents are always quick to say, ‘Yes, there are people in prison for marijuana, but they are a very small percentage of people that get caught with marijuana.’ As if that’s an OK stance to have. They might as well say, ‘Nevermind those poor souls seeing their lives wasted in prison, there aren’t that many of them, so they don’t count.’

I am an avid cannabis consumer, and I couldn’t fathom getting sentenced to life in prison for a plant that has been proven to be 114 times safer than alcohol. Lee Carroll Brooker is serving a life sentence in prison. He appealed his case all the way up to the Alabama Supreme Court, which upheld his conviction. Mr. Brooker then appealed his case to the United States Supreme Court. Sadly, the Court decided to pass on his case today. Per ABC:

The Supreme Court on Monday turned away an appeal from a 76-year-old Alabama man who was sentenced to life in prison without parole for possessing less than three pounds of marijuana that he said he grew for personal use.

Students To Rally Outside United Nations Meeting On Global Drug War

Category: News | Posted on Sun, April, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

students for sensible drug policyAbout 200 students and youth allies will demonstrate outside of a high-level United Nations meeting on the global war on drugs in New York this Monday. They are distressed that youth and other anti-prohibition voices have been ignored by world leaders, many of whom seem set on continuing the same criminalization-based approaches that have failed for decades.

The activists will stage performance art pieces, including slam poetry readings. Visual art depicting the harms of drug prohibition, from as far away as Afghanistan and Eastern Europe, will be displayed, and students will give short soapbox speeches to make their voices heard.

The United Nations General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS) on drugs is the highest-level gathering on the topic in nearly two decades. There, heads of state and diplomats will have the opportunity to discuss revising international drug control treaties that threaten to stand in the way of humane, evidence-based drug law reforms like marijuana legalization and access to harm reduction services as a growing number of U.S. states and other countries move toward ending prohibition.
