The One City in America Where Drug War Reparations Are Real

Category: News | Posted on Mon, March, 13th 2017 by THCFinder

In terms of population, Oakland, California, is just about as equal a place as you’ll find in America. Of the roughly 400,000 people who call the “Brooklyn of the San Francisco Bay Area” home, about 34 percent are black, 34 percent are white, 25 percent are Latino and 17 percent are Asian. If you are about to helpfully point out, “Hey, stupid, that’s 110 percent,” let’s pause for a moment while we direct you here, while the rest of us marvel at the amazing equal-parts-each melting pot! What a social experiment.

When arresting Oakland citizens for drug-related crimes, Oakland police, however, have been not so equal.

They’ve been above average—which, in an America where the drug war has seen almost four black people arrested for non-violent marijuana crimes for every white person (despite equal rates of use) is a bad thing.

Pot Matters: Sessions Backs Down on Legalization

Category: Culture | Posted on Sun, March, 12th 2017 by THCFinder

As first reported by Politico, “Attorney General Jeff Sessions has privately reassured some Republican senators that he won’t deviate from an Obama-era policy of allowing states to implement their own marijuana laws.”

Senator Rand Paul revealed that Sessions affirmed his support for “states’ rights on these things.’

Senator Cory Gardner has reportedly talked to several administration officials and has the impression that there will not be a significant change in federal policy toward his state, which has legalized marijuana, nor toward others.

A bi-partisan group of senators from legalization states, led by Elizabeth Warren and Lisa Murkowski have written Sessions urging the Department of Justice to continue a policy of letting states enact such laws, describing them as having “strong and effective regulations for recreational use.”

Marijuana Isn’t Legal in Missouri, But it’s Less Illegal Than it Used to be!

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, March, 12th 2017 by THCFinder

Missouri marijuana laws have changed in 2017.  Is marijuana legal in Missouri?  Marijuana isn’t legal in Missouri; but it’s less illegal than it used to be.  Here is why:

Up until January 1, 2017, possession of any amount of marijuana, no matter how small, was considered at least a Class A misdemeanor.  A ‘Class A’ misdemeanor carries a possible jail sentence from 1 day to 1 year in the county jail.  This meant that if a defendant was caught with marijuana, even a single joint, the judge had the authority to put the defendant in jail for a year if he wanted to.  As of January 1, 2017 possession of up to 10 grams of marijuana is now a Class D misdemeanor, so long the defendant has no prior drug convictions.  A ‘Class D’ misdemeanor carries NO jail time and a maximum fine of $500.  This essentially decriminalizes recreational possession.  However, possession of marijuana over 10 grams or a previous conviction for possession of marijuana, can elevate the charge back to a Class A misdemeanor.  It is important to note that although a first offense is not punishable by jail time, a second conviction would be.  Therefore, it is important to preserve your criminal record if you are in fact charged with this offense.  Many times a lawyer may be able to negotiate an outcome that is not considered a “conviction” and therefore under the law, if you ever got caught again, you would still be considered a first time offender.
