Man Shot and Killed During Raid of Marijuana Grow Operation in California

Category: News | Posted on Thu, April, 30th 2015 by THCFinder

A man suspected of operating an illegal marijuana grow was shot and killed during a multi-agency raid at a federal wildlife refuge near Sacramento on Wednesday morning.

According to KCRA.com, the Department of Justice was tipped off about a grow operation at Stone Lakes National Wildlife Refuge and put together task force "to try and stop the grow before it could really get going." The raid was reportedly conducted from multiple angles, and one of the teams confronted the alleged grower, who was armed.

The Sacramento Bee reported that the California Fish and Game officer who shot the man in the chest feared for his life when shots were fired.

"I do know that he presented a threat to the officer's life," Fish and Wildlife spokesman Capt. Patrick Foy told SacBee.com. "The officer is very experienced and has been in dangerous situations before. He is one of our more experienced officers related to marijuana cultivation and raids."

Foy said that more than one shot was fired at the man. Other news outlets reported that the suspected cannabis grower never fired his weapon. The man was pronounced dead on the scene, and authorities reportedly found hundreds of marijuana pants in the wildlife preserve.

51% Support Legalizing Marijuana says FOX News Poll

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, April, 29th 2015 by THCFinder

For the first time ever, a FOX News poll has found a majority of respondents in favor of legalizing marijuana.
 
The poll, released late last week, found 51% of those surveyed favor legalizing marijuana. Just 44% were opposed. Last year, a similar FOX News poll found support at 50% in favor, and 43% against. In 2013, 46% favored legalization while 49% were opposed.
 
The poll found that voters under 35 years old (54%) are more likely than those 65 and older (39%) to favor legalizing marijuana. Men (56%) are more likely than women (46%) to support it.
 
Majorities of Democrats (62%) and independent voters (53%) support legalizing marijuana, while a majority of Republicans opposes it (59%).
 
The findings are similar to other recent national polls released this month, and reflect a growing national acceptance of marijuana law reform.
 
The FOX News poll, was conducted between April 19-21, 2015. The poll sampled 1,102 registered voters nationwide, and has a margin of error of +/- 3%.

Lawyer Leads Effort To Add Marijuana Law To Michigan Bar Association

Category: News | Posted on Wed, April, 29th 2015 by THCFinder

michigan marijuana bar associationThe race is on to see which attorneys in Michigan will be among the first 50 to indicate their support for creating a marijuana law section of the Michigan Bar Association, according to Lapeer attorney Bernard Jocuns.

Jocuns leads the effort to petition the Association to create an attorney’s group devoted to discussing and advising on the subject of marijuana law.

“We need a minimum of fifty lawyers to indicate their support,” Jocuns said, although he expects to receive far more emails than that from attorneys certifying their interest.

A marijuana law section could issue papers, advise the legislature or offer educational seminars to raise awareness of the evolving state of marijuana law in Michigan, Jocuns said. “It’s an opportunity for lawyers to exchange ideas,” Jocuns explained.

“The goal is for people to get educated, and for there to be a body of educated lawyers that can speak with authority.”

Other attorneys around the state are in support of the idea. “Medical marihuana is important to the Citizens of Michigan, and states are adopting legislation for the adult recreational use of marihuana at an increasing pace. The State Bar of Michigan must recognize the important role cannabis and laws relating to its responsible use now play, and should do so by establishing a section focused on these rapidly evolving issues,” said Daniel Grow, a lawyer that practices criminal law across southwest Michigan, with a focus on issues relating to medical marijuana.

“Marijuana law is one of the most rapidly changing and misunderstood areas of law in our state,” said Farris Haddad, a Southfield attorney. “We are all affected by marijuana law in one way or another-so it’s a valid candidate for its own bar section.”

“It would really help take away some of the taboo that surrounds marijuana,” Jocuns offered. “Prosecutors are not the enemy.”

Attorney Matthew Abel of Cannabis Counsel in Detroit said, “Marijuana law intersects with numerous areas of law.  We hope this section will receive wide participation.”

Criminal law is only one aspect of the legal spectrum where marijuana issues are resolved. “This is not just a criminal issue,” Jocuns offered. He included attorneys specializing in family law, business law and even agriculture law specialists as potential members of the marijuana law section.
