U.S. Postal Service Warns Newspapers Not to Run Pot Ads

Category: News | Posted on Wed, December, 2nd 2015 by THCFinder

While almost everyone is aware by now that conflicting state and federal law makes it highly illegal to transport weed through the mail, some have been surprised to learn that it is also apparently a violation  to use the United States Postal Service to distribute advertisements for the marijuana industry.

A report published this week in The Bulletin indicates that the U.S. Postal Service in Portland recently published a warning to newspapers across the city suggesting that running ads pertaining to cannabis might bring some heat down courtesy of the federal government. The memo, which uses a snippet from the U.S. Code on Food and Drugs, says running an “Ad in any publication with the purpose of seeking or offering illegally to receive, buy, or distribute a Schedule I controlled substances” is a violation of federal law. 

Of course, this development invoked a great deal of panic in unsuspecting publishers doing business in the Portland area. Some of the newspapers there have been working with marijuana operations for years marketing their goods and services in the same way they would with other industries. However, the message coming from the USPS, which calls its recent memo a “reminder of existing federal law,” is that all of these transactions have been against the law.

Man sues Border Patrol over right to carry medical marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Tue, December, 1st 2015 by THCFinder

LAS CRUCES - A Deming man is suing the U.S. Border Patrol, alleging agents are failing to adhere to a new rule that allow him to carry medical marijuana without risking federal charges.

Raymundo Marrufo, who participates in New Mexico's medical marijuana program, filed the lawsuit Monday in federal court seeking an injunction against the U.S. Border Patrol in connection with questions the agency poses to travelers at border checkpoints.

Marrufo's attorney, Jason Flores-Williams, writes that Marrufo must routinely travel from Deming to Las Cruces to obtain medical cannabis, which requires passing through a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint on Interstate 10 on his return trip. Federal agents ask him whether he has any illegal drugs — posing a dilemma for Marrufo because marijuana is still a controlled substance under federal law.

"If Marrufo answers 'yes,' he is a drug smuggler subject to felony indictment," the court complaint states.

But if Marrufo answers "no," he could be guilty of lying to a federal agent, according to court records.
