How Long After Harvest Is Medical Marijuana Considered To Be ‘Useable’ In Michigan?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, January, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

drying marijuana 1How long after harvest is medical marijuana considered to be ‘useable’ in the State of Michigan? That’s a question that the Michigan Appeals Court had to answer recently. The question arose out of a case that started with a raid in Michigan in 2012. During the raid, cops confiscated 5.6 pounds of marijuana from Alenna Marie Rocafort. Her attorney argued that the weight was inflated because the marijuana was just harvested four days prior, and therefore wasn’t ‘useable.’ The Michigan Court of Appeals disagreed, and in a 2-1 ruling determined that the marijuana was indeed useable. Per WZZM13:

“There was no dispute that the marijuana had been drying for four days when it was seized,” they wrote. “The lower court judge was not wrong in concluding the seized marijuana was dried, and thus usable under the MMMA.”

In a two-page dissent, Stephens said the evidence did not establish that the 5.6 pounds of marijuana was “dried leaves and flowers.”

“There is a difference between what the Legislature has termed marijuana and useable marijuana,” she wrote. “Testimony differed as to the amount of days required for the marijuana to be dried.

“I acknowledge the difficulty in determining ‘dried marijuana’ when even so-called completely dried marijuana contains 10 percent moisture, but I would also call upon the Legislature for clarification,” Stephens urged.

Toledo Decriminalization Law Gives “No Fines, No Jail Time” for Felony Pot Offenses

Category: News | Posted on Mon, January, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

While Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine attempts to sabotage a measure completely decriminalizing marijuana possession in the city of Toledo, local prosecutors appear to be doing their best to maintain the integrity of the ordinance.

A recent report from the Toledo Blade suggests that ever since voters approved a measure last September that eliminates the criminal penalties associated with misdemeanor and felony pot possession, only one person has been convicted of the offense—an 18-year-old woman by the name of Mariah Smith, who received a sentence of “no fines and no jail time.” 

A total of 21 defendants have been arrested for marijuana possession since the ordinance went into effect last year. All, with the exception of Smith, are currently awaiting trial, or for their charges to be reduced to disorderly conduct, according to the report.

This Invention Could Address a Serious Marijuana Concern

Category: News | Posted on Sun, January, 10th 2016 by THCFinder

As we barrel headlong into 2016, one issue that promises to take center stage, especially with elections just 10 months away, is marijuana.

Marijuana expands, but roadblocks remain
Over the previous two decades marijuana has been practically unstoppable. With the exception of a few notable defeats -- the defeat two months ago of Issue 3 in Ohio, which attempted to approve medical and recreational marijuana at the same time, and Florida's medical marijuana defeat in 2014 -- marijuana's expansion continues.

In two decades, 23 states have approved the use of marijuana for select medical ailments, and since 2012 four states (along with Washington, D.C.) now allow for the sale of marijuana to adults for recreational use. Medical marijuana opens new treatment avenues for select patients dealing with chronic or terminal illnesses, while for states the retail sale of marijuana provides another source of revenue that can help fill relatively small budget gaps.
