Police in Legal States Using Social Media to Bust People for Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Tue, January, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

Even in states where marijuana has been made legal, law enforcement agencies are still engaging in underhanded practices, some of which are blatant models of entrapment, to arrest people for marijuana.

A recent investigational report by CBS4 has discovered that Denver police have been using social media platforms, such as Facebook and Instagram, to pose as black market growers in an attempt to bust those who purchase weed from anywhere other the city’s licensed pot shops. 

While it seems unnecessary for cops to conduct marijuana sting operations in a state where prohibition has not had a pulse for the past two years, legalization has not stopped the hounds of Denver’s drug task force from concocting inventive ways to continue bringing the hammer down on what is left of the marijuana underworld. The report finds that Denver police have been setting up phony social media accounts, complete with back stories as to not arouse suspicion, to post photos of marijuana grows, tagged with captions like, “Place your order today, gets shipped out before 8 a.m.”

In fact, a Facebook post with a picture of a cultivation site under the headline “Getting close to peak!! Taking orders now!!” is what brought the heat down on 26-year-old Sean Edelson.

Former US Rep Mike Ward And ‘Legalize Kentucky Now’ Seek To Reform Kentucky’s Marijuana Laws

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, January, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

legalize kentucky now marijuana cannabisPeople have been fighting for marijuana reform in Kentucky for a long time. The Southeastern part of the United States does not have any medical marijuana states or recreational marijuana states. A new organization was launched today to try to change that. The organization is called ‘Legalize Kentucky Now’ and is lead by former United States Representative Mike Ward. Per The Courier-Journal:

Former U.S. Rep. Mike Ward is trying to bring mainstream credibility to the effort to legalize medical marijuana in Kentucky.

He announced Monday that he is the president and CEO of Legalize Kentucky Now, a nonprofit that will push for Kentucky to become the 24th state overall and the first in the southeast to make pot available with a doctor’s prescription.

“It’s time,” he said. “This is absolutely something that is going to happen in this country and this state.”

Mike Ward became a supporter of medical marijuana after watching it help alleviate his brother’s suffering and helped his brother’s appetite when he was fighting AIDS in the 1990’s. The media reports from today stated that the organization Legalize Kentucky Now would be pushing for a medical marijuana bill in the Kentucky Legislature, but the Legalize Kentucky Now website states that it hopes to bring recreational legalization to Kentucky eventually as well.

How Accurate Are The Drug Test Kits That Law Enforcement Use To Prove A Substance Is Marijuana?

I posted an article yesterday about the case of Robert and Addie Harte. The Hartes had their home SWAT raided after police determined that they were illegal growing marijuana in their home. That determination by law enforcement was based on just two things. The first is that Robert Harte was seen buying grow equipment from an indoor garden store (for growing tomatoes). The other was that when cops went through the family’s trash can, they found what they thought to be wet marijuana plant material.

The plant material was tested with a field drug test kit, which returned a positive result for marijuana. Those two factors alone were enough to result in a SWAT raid on the family’s home, and guns being pointed at Robert and his wife’s children. A much more accurate lab test on the plant material returned the following result, per KansasCity.Com:

They conducted a field test on the material, and it tested positive for marijuana, according to the lawsuit.

A lab test done 10 days after the raid and again four months later found that the leafy material was not marijuana.

“It does not look anything like marijuana leaves or stems,” the lab report said.
