Florida Man Sues Over State Ignoring Marijuana Law

Category: News | Posted on Tue, November, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.— A Florida man suffering from epilepsy is suing Gov. Rick Scott and the state of Florida due to the governor and his administration’s slower than molasses completion of Florida’s medical marijuana legislation. Medical marijuana was approved by voters in 2016.

Michael Bowen filed a lawsuit along with co-plaintiff Bill's Nursery, a medical marijuana farmer, on Tuesday. The suit requests the judge to order that licenses be granted by the Department of Health to treatment centers now. As of October 3, at least 10 licenses were supposed to be given but so far just 6 have been granted.

 

Bowen has severe grand mal seizures and other traditional treatments have failed him. He used to take up to 600 mg of barbiturates on a daily basis which left him clumsy and did not allow him to function. He says that with medical marijuana he can live a functional life. A spokeswoman for Florida’s Department of Health, Mara Gambineri, said that they are "diligently" working to implement the new law.

Fortunately, thanks to modern technology, more and more of these uniformed thugs are getting nailed to the wall.

Recently, CBS2 News obtained a video from an incident that took place back in April, showing an officer with the Los Angeles Police Department planting drugs on a man during a traffic stop. The video shows LAPD Officer Gaxiola pick up a small bag of what appears to be cocaine and stash it in the wallet of 52-year-old Ronald Shields.

“He has a little bag of narco in here,” Gaxiola says several times in the video.

School Forces Black Students To Submit To Drug Tests

Category: News | Posted on Tue, November, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

In this latest display of drug war-fueled racism, a Tennessee school forces black students to submit to drug tests. If you weren’t yet convinced that cannabis prohibition disproportionately targets people of color, you will be after reading this. Here’s what happened at a university in Tennessee.

The Situation

Diamond Bell is a freshman studying psychology at Trevecca Nazarene University, a small Christian college in Nashville.
