WA State Won't Give Father Custody Of Child Because He Is A Medical Marijuana Patient

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 19th 2013 by THCFinder
wa-wont-give-child-back-to-fatherIf you are in the area, please attend the press conference and rally below. It makes my heart ache to hear stories like this:
 
Serra Frank, the Founding Executive Director of Moms for Marijuana International, will be hosting a press conference with her partner, Billy Fisher, on October 3, 2013 in front of the Spokane County Court House.
 
This press conference is to bring awareness about the nationwide issue with CPS and Cannabis Consuming parents, and focus on the local issue regarding the fight for Billy’s daughter, Lilly Fisher, in Washington State.
 
Billy is currently fighting CPS for custody of his daughter after begging for help to save her from an extremely unsafe situation. CPS refuses to give custody to Billy and cite their primary concern to be his use of marijuana as medicine, and now are focusing upon his newly found Activism.
 
Billy has a Revision hearing at 1:30 pm on that day, to request the Superior Court to revise Spokane Family Law Commissioner Jolicoeur’s recent order that demands that Billy quit using Medical Marijuana for his Degenerative Disc Disease while submitting to inpatient treatment for Cannabis Dependency for 30 days, as well as random UAs during 2 years of after care.
 
Washington Law, RCW 69.51A.120, protects Billy Fisher’s parental rights as a medical marijuana patient in compliance with that chapter. Commissioner Jolicoeur is ignoring Washington State Law, and forcing Billy Fisher to forgo due process and his parental rights in order to obtain custody of his baby girl from State dependency.
 
Billy’s little girl was NEVER taken from him, and he has done NOTHING wrong that would justify the commissioner’s ruling, much less the threat of permanent adoption of his baby if he does not comply.
 
CPS policy regarding Marijuana use is illogically based on the assumption of harm, from a drug and a plant that cannot harm anyone. It is unethical, to force anyone to stop a medical treatment that is working, and go back to one that has already failed… just to be allowed to be a parent.
 
And it is irrational to insist that Billy be locked up for inpatient rehab for his MEDICINE, especially in a state where citizens just voted to STOP LOCKING PEOPLE UP FOR MARIJUANA.

FBI Study Shows Record High Marijuana Arrests Continue Despite Changing Attitudes

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 19th 2013 by THCFinder
arrests-for-mj-on-the-riseWASHINGTON, D.C. — Marijuana arrests continued at near record levels in 2012, and the vast majority of them were for simple possession. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s annual Uniform Crime Report, an estimated 749,824 arrests were made nationwide for marijuana, more than 87% of which were for possession. This is a slight decrease from 2011. Marijuana arrests accounted for nearly half of all drug arrests last year.
 
The report also noted that 59.9% of rapes, 53.2% of all violent crimes, and 81% of property crimes reported in 2012 were unsolved or did not result in arrest.
 
These results show that one person is arrested for marijuana possession every 48 seconds on average in the United States. A Pew Research Poll released in April reported that a majority of Americans think marijuana should be taxed and regulated in a manner similar to alcohol.
 
“Instead of punishing and stigmatizing responsible adult marijuana users, we should be focusing on serious crime,” said Dan Riffle, director of federal policies for the Marijuana Policy Project in a statement released Tuesday.  ”As a former prosecuting attorney myself, I believe it is irresponsible to squander our limited law enforcement resources on this disastrous public policy failure. That is especially true when so many violent crimes remain unsolved. Every second spent arresting and prosecuting adults for marijuana is time that could have been spent preventing and solving real crimes.”
 
“There is no greater waste of valuable taxpayer dollars than branding hundreds of thousands of otherwise law-abiding citizens as criminals simply for choosing to use a substance less harmful than alcohol. Given the fact that most Americans support taxing and regulating marijuana like alcohol, I suggest our police and prosecutors find a better use of their time.”
