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.

Homegrown Marijuana Takes Hit In Swedish High Court

Category: News | Posted on Tue, December, 5th 2017 by THCFinder

The trial of a paralyzed man who was prosecuted by Swedish authorities for self-medicating with cannabis recently sparked debate over the right to cultivate medicinal herb in the Scandinavian nation. Now Sweden’s Supreme Court has just ruled against the defendant, dealing a blow to the right to self-medicate.

Andreas Thörn, 39, who broke his neck in a motorcycle accident in 1994, used cannabis for relief from neuropathic pain, as well as for anxiety and depression. He was acquitted in August 2015 by a local district court in Västerås, after successfully using a medical necessity defense. Thörn said he had tried numerous pharmaceuticals which did not help and had run out of legal options.

But the prosecution appealed, and last year the appellate court found him guilty, imposing a fine of 11,700 kronor (about $1,400). Then, it was Thörn’s turn to appeal, and the case went before the country’s top court.
