After the most recent election in Canada, a lot of people feel that marijuana legalization is inevitable in Canada. And rightfully so, because the person leading the charge is the newly elected Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau. This is something that Canadian police seem to be aware of too, but instead of embracing the impending changes to Canadian marijuana policy, they did the opposite and raided three medical marijuana dispensaries in B.C. this week. Per Vice News:

In seeming defiance of the new government’s intention to legalize marijuana, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police have followed through on their threat to bust three medical marijuana dispensaries in British Columbia. And at least one is vowing to re-open.

“It is unfortunate that the RCMP decided the best way to deal with the coming change in cannabis laws was to detain front line clerks and attempt to prevent access of medical cannabis patients,” reads a statement from Trees Dispensary, released Tuesday evening.

The Nanaimo medical marijuana store said that the raid on their storefront “[flies] in the face of public opinion, and the stance of our newly-­elected federal government.”

Mexico to Open Debate on Use of Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Thu, December, 3rd 2015 by THCFinder

MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto came out strongly against legalizing marijuana on Wednesday, the same day his government announced a national public debate on the issue.

He suggested the recent, informal debate on the issue has already created confusion, even among his own children. Mexico's Supreme Court ruled in November that growing, possessing and smoking marijuana for recreation is legal under the right to freedom, but that ruling applied only to the four people involved in the case.

Pena Nieto said Wednesday that one of his own kids asked him "Hey Dad, does that mean I can light up a joint in front of you soon?"

The president said: "No, don't be confused."

"I am not in favor of consuming or legalizing marijuana," Pena Nieto said at a speech announcing a child welfare program. "I am not in favor because it has been proven, demonstrated, that consuming this substance damages the health of children and youths."

Cops Took More From Citizens Than Burglars Did Last Year Via Asset Forfeiture

When you think about getting property stolen, you think about criminals, but maybe you should be thinking about the police. Law enforcement use of asset forfeiture laws to seize property—often without a criminal conviction or even an arrest—has gone through the roof in recent years, and now the cops are giving the criminals a run for their money—and winning.

According to a new report on asset forfeiture from the Institute for Justice, police seized $4.5 billion in cash and property through civil forfeiture last year. That exceeds the $3.9 billion worth of property stolen in burglaries during the same period. The valuation of burglary proceeds is from the FBI’s annual Uniform Crime Report.

Now, not every dollar seized by police is “stolen.” Some of it is seized legitimately from real criminals who should pay for the damage their crimes cause. But in too many cases, property is seized from people who have not been convicted of anything, like Charles Clarke.

Clarke, a 24-year-old college student, was relieved of $11,000 in cash by federal agents at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport after a ticket agent reportedly told them he smelled like marijuana. They stopped and searched him at the airport, found no drugs or other banned items, and never charged him with a crime, but they took his money.

Clarke says the cash was money he had saved over five years for college tuition. A federal judge this month said he was inclined to believe Clarke and has ordered the feds to actually show he made the money from drug dealing, as they claimed.
