Seattle tosses out marijuana tickets

Category: News | Posted on Tue, September, 23rd 2014 by THCFinder
seattle-tossing-our-marijuana-ticketsSEATTLE – The city has torn up nearly 90 citations given to people accused of publicly smoking marijuana after an investigation revealed a single cop wrote most of them.
 
Seattle officials on Monday dismissed the tickets over concerns Officer Randy Jokela was unfairly and arbitrarily targeting the homeless and African-Americans. On one of the tickets, Jokela wrote a note indicating he had flipped a coin about who to give the ticket to. Jokela was temporarily reassigned and faces an internal affairs investigation.
 
"The police do not write the laws. They enforce the laws," said Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes. "You can't be a legislator out on the street."
 
Seattle has decriminalized simple marijuana possession, and the state of Washington permits both recreational and medical marijuana consumption and possession. Public consumption, however, remains illegal.
 
It's unclear, city officials said, whether Jokela was simply aggressively handing out legitimate tickets or if he was just making up the charges because he objected to the decriminalization and legalization of marijuana in Seattle. Jokela is accused of writing 80% of the marijuana tickets in the first six months of the year.
 
The city formally voided the 86 tickets on Monday morning.
 
Holmes, who backed the campaigns to decriminalize and then legalize marijuana, said Jokela's seemingly arbitrary approach to writing tickets was "abhorrent." He said social justice requires the law be applied evenly, and on Monday announced a new police policy aimed at educating users first before issuing them a ticket.

Denver-area veterans given free marijuana at unusual event

veterans-give-free-mj-outDENVER - An event targeted at veterans handed out free marijuana to hundreds of people on Saturday, including edibles and medicinal versions of the plant, all in an effort organizers say was designed to help vets in need.
 
The Denver Cannibis Giveaway, gave out pot to the veterans and to the general public, who can now legally possess it in Colorado, as a different approach to treating veterans who have post-traumatic stress disorder, reports CBS Denver.
 
"That's our mission, is to offer veterans a safe alternative to the dangerous prescription drugs that they're prescribed to deal with PTSD, TBI, chronic pain, and all sorts of other ailments," said Roger Martin, Operation Grow4Vets Executive Director.
 
But others objected to the distribution of marijuana publicly to veterans in this fashion.
 
"These people are getting marijuana with varying degrees of potency and THC. That could cause things like paranoia," said Bob Doyle of the Colorado Smart Approaches to Marijuana (SAM) Coalition. "Obviously things that we wouldn't want somebody with PTSD to be experiencing."
 
Still, the vets who attended the event say marijuana is useful to them as medical treatment because they make more sense than harsher alternatives."I'm allergic to morphine opiates, I can't take them," said Mark Pitt, a Vietnam veteran. "So I don't have much choice other than do that."

Medical Marijuana Sales To Begin In Connecticut

Medical marijuana patients have been waiting a long time in Connecticut to get safe access to medicine. It appears that the wait is over. Late last week it was announced that the first crop of legal medical marijuana is ready for distribution. Per CT Now:
 
Sales of medical marijuana in Connecticut are expected to begin next week as the first grower prepares to make shipments to dispensaries around the state, nearly two years after the state legalized the use of marijuana to relieve symptoms of some chronic illnesses.
 
“We are on track to make a Monday delivery,” Daniel Emmans, chief operating officer at Theraplant LLC in Watertown, said Friday. “Over the weekend, we will be arranging the deliveries at the dispensaries.”
 
Six dispensaries have been licensed by the state to sell medical marijuana, and those contacted Friday said it was likely sales would begin one day after shipments were received at their storefronts. That could put medical marijuana for sale as early as Tuesday.
 
Prices for medical marijuana in Connecticut are expected to be between $17 and $20 per gram. To an Oregonian, where prices are less than half of that, I find those prices to be incredibly high. However, I’d like to hear from Connecticut residents to see if those prices are average for the area. Right now there is only one producer, so as more producers come on line, hopefully those prices drop. It makes me sad when price gouging occurs because this should be about patients, not profits.
