Committee Advises California Judges Not to Invest in Pot
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A California Supreme Court committee advised judges in the state Wednesday to stay away from pot – meaning investments in pot businesses.
Maintaining any interest in a business that involves medical or recreational marijuana is incompatible with a judge’s obligation to follow the law, the court’s Committee on Judicial Ethics Opinions said.
California voters have legalized the use of recreational and medical marijuana, but the drug remains illegal under federal law.
The committee said involvement in a pot business could also cast doubt on a judge’s ability to act impartially, particularly in marijuana-related cases.
Houston’s District Attorney Defends Move to Decriminalize Marijuana
While Attorney General Jeff Sessions pushes his tough-on-weed agenda, one Texas District Attorney is sticking to her decision to decriminalize small amounts of pot.
Kim Ogg, Houston’s first Democratic DA in nearly four decades, lost no time in declaring that she was not interested in locking up people for small amounts of pot.
While federal criminal justice reform has lagged on a national level for years, many local, recently elected officials are stepping up to the plate.
Kim Ogg is one of them.
In a politically conservative state like Texas, Ogg is in a constant showdown with Republican, mostly male, leaders who don’t like what she stands for nor where she stands for it: Houston, the lone state’s largest city.
Sour Grape (Hybrid)
A hybrid of Grape Ape and the legendary Sour Diesel, this strain is gaining more and more popularity. The buds are medium-sized, light-green and astonishingly coated with sticky trichromes. The aroma from these near-perfect nugs is fragrantly similar to white wine, citrus and fruit, with undertones of sour dank. The buds are somewhat fluffy and noticeably soft.
