RIVERSIDE COUNTY: Ordinance would impose $10 to $1,000 fines for growing marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Tue, July, 29th 2014 by THCFinder
growing-marijuana-fine-in-riversideGrowers of indoor and outdoor marijuana crops in unincorporated parts of Riverside County could be fined $10 to $1,000 under an ordinance before the county Board of Supervisors Tuesday.
 
Those who cultivate 12 or more plants also would face up to six months in jail if the ordinance offered by Supervisor Kevin Jeffries passes as written. Supervisors this week could set a Sept. 9 public hearing on the ordinance, after which they could vote on the proposed law.
Jeffries, who represents a district stretching from Riverside to Lake Elsinore, is sponsoring the ordinance to crack down on for-profit marijuana fields. More than 200 marijuana grows are in the Mead Valley, Good Hope and Meadowbrook areas of Jeffries’ district, according to county officials.
 
Authorities say solicitors offer thousands of dollars a month to property owners and renters if they let their backyards be used for growing marijuana.
 
Permits posted near the crops state the marijuana is being grown for medicinal use. Jeffries said he fears drug cartels are involved, though sheriff’s officials say they have not received specific reports on such activity. The crops increase the risk of crime, create noxious odors and lead to illegal power and water hookups, according to a county staff report on the ordinance.
 
Jeffries has said he doesn’t want to go after legitimate medical marijuana patients with small crops. Medical marijuana is legal in California, although it remains against federal law and many cities and counties – Riverside County among them – have banned dispensaries.
Technically, the county already outlaws marijuana cultivation. Jeffries’ ordinance would spell that out more clearly and impose $10 fines for anyone found guilty of cultivating six or fewer plants.
 
Those who grow more than six but fewer than a dozen plants would be subject to a fine not to exceed $200. Anyone who cultivates 12 or more plants would be guilty of a misdemeanor could be fined up to $1,000, face a jail sentence of up to six months or both.
Lanny Swerdlow, a marijuana legalization advocate from Whitewater, said the ordinance is deeply flawed.
 
“It’s nice that they lowered the fines,” he said. “They claim it’s to stop large-scale grows ... but it stops little teeny (grows) by patients, indoor or outdoor.

Purple Urkle - Indica

Purple Urkle comes from Mendo Purps pheno and is native to the notorious green triangle in northern California. It is characterized by unusually long orange hairs covering small, dense, purple nugs when properly grown and harvested. The color is a purple much like that found on quality strains of Lavender, although despite common misconception, the two are not related.

Federal marijuana bill would legalize some cannabis strains

legalize-some-strains
(CNN) -- Doctors in Macon, Georgia, told Janea Cox that her daughter, Haleigh, might not live another three months.
 
That was the middle of March, when Haleigh's brain was being short-circuited by hundreds of seizures a day, overrunning the array of five potent drugs meant to control them. Worse, the drugs were damaging Haleigh's organs.
"She was maxed out," Cox said. "She'd quit breathing several times a day, and the doctors blamed it on the seizure medications."
 
Cox had heard that a form of medical marijuana might help, but it wasn't available in central Georgia. So a week after hearing the ominous diagnosis, she and Haleigh packed up and moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado. There, Haleigh began a regimen of cannabis oil: four times a day and once at night.
 
By summer, she was down to just a handful of seizures a day. In less than three months, doctors were able to wean her off Depakote, a powerful medication that had been damaging her liver.
 
Haleigh had never been able to walk or talk. But freed from seizures in Colorado, "She said 'Mama' for the first time," Cox said. "She's playing with puzzles; she's walking. She's almost being a normal child."
 
Despite all the good news, Cox is living in limbo. Her husband, a paramedic, couldn't afford to leave his job and pension; he still lives and works in Forsyth, Georgia. The family is relying on charity to keep their Colorado apartment for the next few months; beyond that, the future is uncertain.
 
A bill being introduced Monday in the U.S. House of Representatives could be Cox's ticket home. The three-page bill would amend the Controlled Substances Act -- the federal law that criminalizes marijuana -- to exempt plants with an extremely low percentage of THC, the chemical that makes users high.
 
If passed, it would be the first time that federal law allows any medical marijuana use.
 
"No one should face a choice of having their child suffer or moving to Colorado and splitting up their family," said Rep. Scott Perry, R-Pennsylvania, the bill's sponsor. "We live in America, and if there's something that would make my child better, and they can't get it because of the government, that's not right."
 
The bill will land in a Congress that may be open to change. Across the country, highly sympathetic patients and a nonintoxicating product have proved a popular mix. This year alone, 11 states have passed legislation loosening regulation of cannabis strains with high cannabidiol and/or minimal THC content.
 
In this atmosphere, Perry says that once members and their staffs are brought up to speed, he expects the bill to attract "overwhelming" support. "In a time of intractability in Washington, D.C., this is something where we can show some progress."

Did Snoop Dogg Smoke Weed At The White House?

I have been a big fan of Snoop Dogg ever since I heard the song ‘Deep Cover’ with him and Dr. Dre, which they made for the soundtrack of the movie with the same name. By the time he was featured on Dr. Dre’s ‘The Chronic’ I was already obsessed with him, and when ‘Doggystyle’ hit stores when I was in middle school, he had already solidified himself as one my favorite music artists of all time. I have been to Snoop Dogg concerts multiple times, and one of my favorite Weed Blog moments was when I was in Denver in 2013 and got to attend a party that was hosted by Snoop Dogg.
 
While reading articles this week I came across an article on Marijuana.Com that talked about Snoop Dogg getting asked by Jimmy Kimmel if he had smoked weed in a White House bathroom. Below was Snoop’s response:
 
I said, “May I use the bathroom for a second?” And they said, “What are you gonna do, Number 1 or Number 2?” I said, “Number 2.”…The C.I.A. or the F.B.I. [asked]. The alphabet boys. So I said, “Look, when I do the Number 2, I usually, you know, have a cigarette or light something to get the aroma right. And they said, “Well you know what? You can light a piece of napkin.” I said, “I’ll do that.” And the napkin was this [puffs blunt].
 
I don’t know if Snoop was joking or serious, but either way, it’s pretty awesome that a stoner of Snoop Dogg’s caliber was even allowed at the White House. If I was there, I don’t know that I would have the balls to smoke in their bathroom, but then again, I’m not Big Snoop!
