Nicaragua: Army Assassination Disguised As A Marijuana Raid?

Category: News | Posted on Wed, December, 6th 2017 by THCFinder

The International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women march in Nicaragua’s capital on November 25 was ironically set upon by the riot police, with several women being detained. The Managua march was emotionally charged, as it was led by Elea Valle—a Campesina woman whose husband and two young sons were killed two weeks earlier in a raid by army troops on their home in the country’s eastern rainforest.

The army is portraying the Nov. 12 massacre at the village of La Cruz del Río Grande as a drug raid, saying the slain were “delinquents” and that 20 pounds of marijuana were found in the homestead.

“This is a total lie,” Valle told Nicaraguan daily La Prensa. She says her sons—12- and 16-years-old, and among the six slain in the incident—were gunned down unarmed and that the cannabis was planted by the soldiers.

Dallas: Implementing Cite and Summons Policy for Marijuana Possession

Category: News | Posted on Wed, December, 6th 2017 by THCFinder

Dallas takes step forward, but more must be done. Contact your legislators now!

Dear Supporter,

On Friday, Dallas — Texas’ third largest city — implemented a policy that instructs police officers to issue citations and a summons to appear in court, rather than arresting those found in possession of marijuana. This new policy will spare people an initial trip to jail, which is a step in the right direction. However, individuals still face all the same criminal penalties, including up to six months in jail, up to $2,000 in fines, and a lasting criminal record.
In Texas, a criminal record carries the following collateral consequences: -Hindered access to employment-Diminished educational opportunities-Impeded housing options-Jeopardized parental rights-Suspended drivers license (six months)-Obstructed right to self defense/ license to carry (five years)
To see meaningful changes to marijuana laws in Texas, we must change the unreasonable statewide policies that allow for such harsh penalties.
Contact your legislators now in support of more reasonable penalties for marijuana possession. Then, share this email with others who support reform.

Sincerely,

Should America Start Executing Drug Dealers? (Spoiler: No)

Category: News | Posted on Wed, December, 6th 2017 by THCFinder

Amy Shemberger and her boyfriend, Peter Kucinski, were together for 18 years. They had a five-year-old son together. They also had a heroin habit.

On August 10, 2014, Shemberger went out to pick up $20 worth, the couples’ daily opiate dose. She snorted her $10 bag on her way home. Upon returning, she handed Kucinski his share. He snorted his and stopped breathing.

Shemberger did what anyone should do when their partner is having a health crisis—she called 911. This is also what landed her in prison for seven years. Two months after Kucinski fatally overdosed, Shemberger was charged with murder.

She’d handed her lover drugs—an act that qualified as a “delivery,” which in turn made her eligible for prosecution as a “drug dealer” under Illinois’s “drug-induced homicide” laws, a method of waging the drug war that’s becoming increasingly popular in recent years, despite little evidence that it works—and plenty of evidence that it makes things worse.
