Anchorage police seize marijuana plants, computers in raid on Alaska Cannabis Club

Category: News | Posted on Sun, March, 22nd 2015 by THCFinder

Anchorage police served a search warrant on the Alaska Cannabis Club's downtown clubhouse on Friday afternoon, taking boxes of evidence from the residence as club owner Charlo Greene watched.

Anchorage Police Department spokesperson Jennifer Castro told reporters on scene later Friday afternoon that police had received reports of illegal marijuana sales occurring at the clubhouse. No charges had been filed Friday, Castro said.

Police arrived about 1 p.m., Greene said. Greene, whose legal name is Charlene Egbe, is a former television news reporter who achieved national notoriety in September when she quit on-air after announcing she was the owner of the club.

A copy of the search warrant provided by Greene specified police were searching for evidence of "misconduct involving a controlled substance." 

According to Greene, there were nine marijuana plants in one duplex and 14 in another. Five medical-marijuana cardholders live at the residence, Greene said. She said 10 to 12 medical marijuana cardholders were in the residence when the search warrant was served.

"I'm not surprised but I am disappointed," Greene said of the raid.

Two marked police cars were outside the residence on Friday afternoon, with a few more arriving as the search wore on. Greene said about seven officers were boxing up marijuana plants, computers, papers and other materials in the clubhouse. Greene said she was free to go but chose to wait while police took evidence from the home.

Washington Senate Approves PTSD As Qualifying Medical Marijuana Condition

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, March, 21st 2015 by THCFinder

washington state capitol olympia marijuanaMedical marijuana has been found to be an effective treatment for PTSD. That’s why so many states have added PTSD to the list of qualifying conditions to become a medical marijuana patient. Washington unfortunately is not one of those states. But it does appear that PTSD has a good chance of being added to Washington State’s medical marijuana program. This week the Washington Senate approved a bill that would do just that. Per The Joint Blog:

Washington State’s full Senate, with a 48 to 0 vote, has approved a bill to add PTSD as a qualifying medical cannabis conditions.

Senate Bill 5379 was filed by Senator Steve Hobbs, an active member of the Army National Guard, and has been sent to the state’s House of Representatives. Its passage in the House will send it to Governor Jay Inslee for consideration. Nine other states – Michigan, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, New Mexico, Arizona and Oregon – allow those with PTSD to use cannabis for medical purposes.

No one should be denied medical marijuana if it helps treat their condition. To deny a suffering person medicine is a terrible thing, and such an act lacks compassion towards sick and suffering people. I’m happy to see this bill move forward. The bill now moves to the Washington House. I have to assume that if the bill passed unanimously in the Washington Senate, that it has a good chance of passing in the House, albeit maybe not unanimously.
