Former GOP Congressman State Finance Director Tom Campbell Endorses Prop 64

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, August, 22nd 2016 by THCFinder

SACRAMENTO, CA—Today, Tom Campbell, the respected former Republican Congressman and legislator, former Director of the California Department of Finance under Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and current law school professor at Chapman University in Orange County, officially endorsed Proposition 64, the Adult Use of Marijuana Act, which will be on the statewide ballot in November.

“Proposition 64 is a smarter, safer and more fiscally sound approach to adult-use marijuana than what our state is presently doing,” said Campbell. “It will save law enforcement and state taxpayers tens of millions of dollars in reduced enforcement costs that can and should be dedicated to anti-drug education. It will also reduce the underground marijuana market and loosen the stranglehold of the drug cartels.”

“Our present approach, by contrast, puts too many young people into jail, has a racial impact that is very harmful in our state, and makes money for criminals,” he continued. “I have never smoked marijuana, and I do not advocate anyone doing so. But I know the difference between a public health problem and a law enforcement problem. Proposition 64 is the right solution at the right time for California.”

Don Koshmider’s Court Victory Against Prosecutor Mike Rola Indicative of Other Cases in Michigan

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 22nd 2016 by THCFinder

CADILLAC- All charges against Don Koshmider were dismissed.

That’s the short version of the story. The long version involves raids, prosecutors, politically-charged motives and actions by law enforcement that are not supported by the communities they claim to protect.

“I feel fantastic!” Don told me, in an exclusive TCC interview.

“As Don’s attorney I can say we were prepared at the preliminary exam to present a defense to the charges,” said criminal defense attorney Josh Covert, who represented Koshmider in court. “The prosecution was not prepared to hold the hearing and really had no choice but to dismiss the charges for now.”

Koshmider has been an active figure in Michigan’s marijuana movement for several years. He was vocal and visible in Gaylord during the multiple protests held there to oppose a series of raids on medical marijuana distribution centers. Koshmider helped with the petition drive to enact an ordinance in that community to authorize the Centers.

‘Voluntary’ Drug Testing Comes to New Jersey School District

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 22nd 2016 by THCFinder

From New Jersey comes the unwelcome news that the Lacey Township Board of Education has voted to approve a program of “voluntary” random drug-testing for middle school students.

“I’m a supporter for any intervention to give another reason for kids to say ‘no’ and that can start at any age, especially with our young teens,” district superintendent Craig Wigley told NJ Advance Media after the Aug. 15 vote. Seventh and eighth graders who participate in athletic programs or extracurricular programs will be given the “option” to participate in the testing program, with parental consent.
