Colombia Supreme Court: Cultivating Up To 20 Marijuana Plants Is Not A Crime

Category: News | Posted on Tue, August, 18th 2015 by THCFinder

growing marijuanaThe decriminalization of marijuana possession in Colombia occurred awhile ago. Colombia is among a growing number of countries that have decriminalized personal marijuana possession and use. However, cultivation has been a different story. There are a lot of parts of the world that allow consumption and personal possession, but still consider cultivation a crime. Recently the Supreme Court in Colombia ruled that cultivation of up to 20 plants is not a crime. Per Colombia Reports:

Colombia’s Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that growing up to 20 plants of marijuana is not a crime. The possession of small amounts of the drug had already been decriminalized.

The court ruled on the private cultivation of marijuana in an appeal filed by a man who had been sentenced to more than five years in prison after he had been caught by police with a recently cut plant weighing 124 grams.

The maximum amount of marijuana that can legally be carried is 20 grams in Colombia.

However, because the plant was meant for personal consumption, the court confirmed that there is no crime unless a person cultivates more than 20 plants.

The court ruling further decriminalizes the cultivation and possession of the drug for personal use.

Florida: Medical Marijuana Rumble Between the State Legislature and the Voters

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, August, 18th 2015 by THCFinder

Florida lawmakers are spinning their wheels once again in hopes of creating a functional medical marijuana program in the next legislative session. Republican State Representative Greg Steube refilled a piece of legislation last week aimed at putting the state’s idle Charlotte’s Web law out of its misery by establishing a new, equally hollow program that would do very little to serve the patients of the Sunshine state.

The latest proposal doomed to suffer the wrath of Florida’s skittish State Legislature would undoubtedly strengthen the current medical marijuana directive, mostly because the law, regardless of its passing two years ago, has not yet managed to help a single patient. However, Steube has swooped in with what he believes could be salvation’s wings for the state’s remedial approach to operating a medical marijuana market by increasing the number of cultivation operations, as well as expanding the list of qualified conditions past only those suffering from cancer and seizure disorders.

Steube’s bill would open the program up to patients with HIV/AID, Lou Gehrig’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and any terminal illness. Much like the current law, however, it would not allow patients to smoke marijuana.

Pot-Related Summonses on the Rise in NYC, Especially in Minority Neighborhoods

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 17th 2015 by THCFinder

New York City’s posh Upper East Side and East Harlem are mere subway stops apart, but if you live in East Harlem and are black or Latino, you’re 112 times more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession, despite Mayor Bill de Blasio’s campaign promises to end discriminatory policing.  

Are they smoking more pot than their Caucasian counterparts, one might ask? Nope. A 2011National Survey found that Latino and African Americans are less likely to use marijuana than white people.

So what gives in neighborhoods like East New York, Brooklyn, population under 200,000, less than 10 percent white and 35 percent living below the poverty line? East New Yorkers have received the second-highest number of pot possession summonses in New York City. 

The NYPD has issued more than 3,800 pot-related violations in New York City in just the first three months of this year, according to amNew York, putting the force on track to roundly exceed last year’s 13,377 summonses issued. Possessing up to 25 grams of marijuana in private is not a crime in New York State. 

Race and class disparities in drug law enforcement extend across all of New York City, according to areport published by the Drug Policy Alliance that analyzed the cases of 15,324 people arrested for low-level pot possession between March-August of 2014.
