The 2017 Hemp Road Trip is Planning on Reaching 30 States in two Months
Black Mamba (Hybrid)
Black Domina x Blue Bubblejuice This hybrid outcross brings into play thick, potent, resinous Black Domina as the mother plant for the strain. Manicuring this one's round rubbery leaves proceeded in a halting fashion to allow for frequent washing the goo off of fingers. Copious resin production is the hallmark of this devastatingly potent strain, here mated with our homebred representitive selected for strength and aroma. Blue Bubblejuice is 50% Blueberry, 25% Juicy Fruit, and 25% Bubblegum, so then is a 3/4 sibling to famous Bubbleberry
Canada: Long-Awaited Cannabis Legalization Bill Introduced
On Thursday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau introduced legislation to legalize the recreational use of cannabis in Canada, following through on a campaign pledge and ending a long wait by advocates and entrepreneurs.
The new law would allow adults 18 and over to possess or share up to 30 grams of dried herbaceous cannabis and to purchase cannabis or cannabis oil from retailers, to be regulated at the provincial level. Canadians will also be allowed to grow up to four plants per residence for personal use and to prepare legal cannabis products at home. Cannabis-infused edibles are to be available for sale after the regulatory framework is developed and brought into force.
“If your objective is to protect public health and safety and keep cannabis out of the hands of minors, and stop the flow of profits to organized crime, then the law as it stands today has been an abject failure,” Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale told a news conference, according to the Canadian Press. “Police forces spend between $2 billion and $3 billion every year trying to deal with cannabis, and yet Canadian teenagers are among the heaviest users in the western world… we simply have to do better.”
Supreme Court Gives Judges Flexibility In Mandatory Minimum Cases
The US Supreme Court on April 4 handed down a unanimous decision in Dean v. United States, giving federal judges greater flexibility in mandatory minimum cases—an aim activists have long been demanding. Advocacy group Families Against Mandatory Minimums filed a brief in support of the petitioner in the case.
As Bloomberg BNA reports, Levon Dean Jr, of Sioux City, faced consecutive mandatory minimum sentences for use of a firearm in two robberies of local drug dealers. The two mandatory sentences added up to 30 years: a five-year minimum for the first offense and a 25-year minimum for the second. Because of the severity of the mandatory firearm term, Dean requested a sentence of just one day on his robbery and conspiracy charges. The district court wrote that 30 years plus one day was “more than sufficient,” but nonetheless believed it lacked the authority to bend the mandatory minimum law. The Supreme Court has now found otherwise, and Dean will be getting his 30 years plus one day.
