San Jose leaders eye changes to medical marijuana rules

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, November, 29th 2015 by THCFinder

SAN JOSE -- With just weeks to go before a December deadline for compliance, medical marijuana providers are still balking at some of San Jose's rules and city officials are offering to ease them.

 
 

Nineteen pot providers have been seeking to meet San Jose's regulatory requirements by December 18. The rules, adopted in June 2014, restrict pot stores to select industrial and commercial areas away from schools and parks and impose a host of security, tax payment and other requirements. Dispensaries that fail to meet the requirements by the deadline face closure.

But one rule in particular requiring pot stores to demonstrate that their marijuana is cultivated locally and not from collectives around the state remains a sticking point. City officials planned to ask the City Council to ease the rules Tuesday, allowing another five months for shops to sell through products obtained from "third-party" vendors and letting San Jose pot clubs buy and sell to one another.

Marijuana Arrests In New York City Are Down 40% Compared To Last Year

Category: News | Posted on Sun, November, 29th 2015 by THCFinder

new york policy department nypd marijuanaIn 2014, New York City gave officers the discretion to issue those caught with less than 25 grams of marijuana a summons to appear, rather than arrest them. Officers can still arrest people if they are in possession of less than 25 grams of marijuana in New York City ”if the marijuana is burning, if the type of possession indicates intent to sell, if the individual has an outstanding warrant, or if the individual is in a location with special consideration, like a school.” When you compare the year-to-date marijuana arrest statistics to those from the same time last year, marijuana arrests are down significantly in New York City. Per the New York Post:

Police cuffed 18,120 stoners through Oct. 20 — a 40 percent plummet from the 29,906 pot busts in the same period last year, state Division of Criminal Justice records show.

At the same time, tickets for pot violations have surged. Cops handed out 13,081 low-level pot summonses through the end of September — and are on pace for more than 16,000 tickets. The NYPD issued 13,378 pot tickets for all of last year, and 13,316 tickets in 2013, records show.

There is some good news and bad news with these statistics. The obvious good news is that overall arrests are down. However, there are still some racial disparities in enforcement that is currently occurring. The last statistics that I saw showed that over 88% of marijuana arrests in New York City this year involved Black or Hispanic subjects. That’s actually an increase from 2014, when that number was 86.65%. Only full legalization will get rid of those disparities, which is why people in New York should keep fighting for it. There’s still a lot of work to be done!

Marijuana Arrests In Washington D.C. Are Almost Non-Existent In 2015

Category: News | Posted on Sat, November, 28th 2015 by THCFinder

asset forfeiture marijuana arrestIt wasn’t that long ago that thousands of people were arrested for marijuana annually in Washington D.C.. 2,346 people were arrested for marijuana in Washington D.C. in 2011. Washington D.C. voters approved marijuana legalization during the 2014 Election. As a result, marijuana arrests in D.C. are down. Way down. As of November 6th (the most current data available), there have only been 7 arrests for marijuana in D.C.. Per the Washington City Paper:

Last week, on Nov. 4, the District marked the first anniversary of the passage ofInitiative 71, a ballot measure that effectively legalized weed, at least in the form of possessing, growing, and using (but not selling) tiny amounts of it in one’s home.

In that line, data provided by the Metropolitan Police Department shows that marijuana arrests have dropped to historic lows. MPD has only issued seven arrests for possession of marijuana this year, as of Nov. 6—down 99.2 percent from 2014’s 895 total arrests. Even last year, though, police arrested just seven people from Jul. 7 to Dec. 31, likely an indication of a change in MPD strategy afterdecriminalization first took effect. Here’s a by-the-numbers breakdown of MPD arrests for pot possession from 2010 through last week:
