"Just Move To A State Where It's Legal": A Marijuana Mom Responds
Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, July, 15th 2013 by THCFinder
Diane Fornbacher, Publisher of Ladybud Magazine, recently posed a question online asking how people felt about the advice given to so many activist parents when it comes to having their family’s safety threatened by bad marijuana laws. Oftentimes, these mothers are told to just “move to a legal state.”
One detail that struck me during the open and balanced online discussion was a judgmental undertone that appeared to be aimed by dissenters towards the parents who agreed with the advice.
Respondents in favor of moving overwhelmingly cited their children and the effect legal consequences would have on them as their reason to move. Some responding have had personal, devastating interaction with Child Protective Services (CPS) already and are suffering the consequences. It is unclear if any of the parents responding in dissent have had CPS experiences.
Of the people that expressed disagreement with the advice, a few referenced having special needs children whose care and education would be disrupted by moving. A few expressed a desire to move but lacked the funds to do so. Most responding opined that they would not move cited an activist’s sense of duty to fight to change the laws of their home state. It is unclear if everyone responding had children or personal chronic health issues.
Admittedly, I’m sensitive regarding my decision to move my four children and I to Colorado. Maybe part of me agrees with the sentiments expressed by those that disagree with the advice but I don’t agree with what some responders implied about my decision to move in order to preserve my family.
“What’s the point of being an activist if you have nothing to activate for?” was the response from one person.
To that I respond, “What’s the point of being a mother without anyone to mother?”
What made me, a mother of four, decide to move my children from the unfriendly (and getting unfriendlier by the minute) state of Wisconsin to the legalized marijuana state of Colorado?
The most important factor is the immediate safety, well-being and happiness of my family.

Legalized marijuana prompts new question: What about hash?
Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, July, 15th 2013 by THCFinder
SEATTLE — Jim Andersen has a 40-year history with hashish, the concentrated cannabis sometimes referred to as the cognac of the marijuana world.
When he served in the Air Force in Southeast Asia, he said he smuggled it home in his boots. When he was in grad school in California, he made it with a centrifuge in a lab after hours.
So when Washington was on the verge of legalizing the sale of taxed pot last fall, Andersen decided to move back to his home state and turn his hobby into a full-time, legitimate paycheck — a business that would supply state-licensed, recreational marijuana stores with high-quality hash oil.
"Every major culture that has marijuana associated with it has hash associated with it as well," said Andersen, whose company, XTracted, already has two Seattle locations serving medical marijuana dispensaries. He said his business would help prevent such pot extracts from ending up on the black market.
Substance abuse experts are concerned that such increasingly popular, extremely potent and potentially dangerous pot extracts will be sold, and that state regulators' interpretation of the recreational marijuana law will allow people to buy vastly more hash than they need for personal use.
That, they fear, will increase the chances that some of it will end up in the black market out of state.

Lil Reese Arrested for Marijuana Possession
Category: Celebrities | Posted on Mon, July, 15th 2013 by THCFinder
Lil Reese, née Tavares Taylor, was arrested Saturday (July 13) for possession of $24 worth of cannabis and violating his bail bond, reports the Chicago Tribune.
Police were on patrol in an area of Englewood, Calif., an area known for gang-related conflicts, and spotted Taylor standing on the sidewalk with persons known as gang members. Police report seeing Taylor drop the four grams of the drug on the ground when he saw them approaching. A search found he had more than $2,000 in cash on him.
The reporting officer then wrote that he admitted to having the drugs. "It's mine, I got a little weed. So what? ... There's serious crime out there. This ain't a big deal. I'm gangster,"
Taylor was denied a $10,000 bail.
This is the third time this year the 20-year-old Glory Boyz Entertainment/Def Jam signee has had a run-in with law enforcement. There was a warrant out for his arrest on criminal trespasing charges when he was caught sleeping in a car in Champaign County, Ill., back in April. Also that month, he was stopped in Chicago and charged with not signaling, driving without a license and driving without insurance.
Last year, he was tried in the court of public opinion when an old video of him beating a woman went viral.
