Jury convicts man in Miami medical marijuana growhouse case

Category: News | Posted on Sat, September, 26th 2015 by THCFinder

A jury did not believe a Miami-Dade man who insisted he grew 15 marijuana plants inside his home only to help ease the suffering of his cancer-stricken wife.

The six-member jury on Friday night convicted Ricardo Varona of trafficking more than 25 pounds of marijuana and operating a marijuana growhouse. Taken into custody to await sentencing, Varona faces a mandatory minimum of three years in prison.

Varona, 43, was the second South Florida man in the past six months to claim “medical neccesity” in operating a marijuana growhouse. Unlike in the Varona case, a Broward jury in March acquitted 50-year-old Jesse Teplicki, who admitted he grew 46 plants to battle years of nausea and fatigue.

The trial came at a time that marijuana laws across the country have been eased, with the herb now legal for medical use in more than 20 states, and for recreational purposes in four states, plus Washington, D.C.

In Florida, the Legislature this year authorized a low-grade strain of marijuana to treat a small number of ailments, including cancer. In October, the state will hash out which growers will be allowed to cultivate the plants; patients will likely be able to get access to marijuana sometime early next year.

Raid on tribal marijuana farms underscores uncertainty over pot laws

Category: News | Posted on Fri, September, 25th 2015 by THCFinder

Native American tribes’ efforts to cash in on California’s “green rush” by launching large-scale marijuana growing operations appear to have been premature and ill-advised if recent law enforcement raids on tribal lands are any indication.

Pot raids conducted on the Pinoleville Pomo Nation’s Rancheria north of Ukiah this week and on the Pit River and Alturas tribes’ properties in Modoc County in July serve as reminders that such endeavors remain mired in a morass of laws that continue to make cannabis cultivation a risky business.

“It’s a cautionary tale,” said Anthony Broadman, an attorney with Galanda Broadman, a Seattle-based, Native American-owned law firm that represents tribes.

“It’s too bad to see people going in without really understanding the rules,” said Dale Gieringer, of California NORML, the National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws.
