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.

Charges Dropped Against Women Who Was Sexually Assaulted During Marijuana Search

One of the most disgusting stories that I have read about all year is the story of Charneshia Corley, who was sexually assaulted by law enforcement during a search for marijuana. The search didn’t occur in a private room at the police headquarters. It occurred in public view in a Texaco parking lot. I cannot fathom how one human could do that to another human, especially in the name of marijuana prohibition. Charneshia was accused of a traffic violation, and moments later a law enforcement officer is probing her private parts for all to see. That’s absolutely horrific. Below is a description of what happened, via the Huffington Post:

“They sexually assaulted, raped me and molested me,” Corley told The Huffington Post on Monday.

Her attorney, Samuel Cammack III, told HuffPost the two deputies asked Corley to remove her pants in full view of passersby.

“She said, ‘No, I don’t have any panties on,’ so the officer told her to bend over and she pulled her pants down for her and went to stick her hand inside of Ms. Corely,” Cammack said.

Corley resisted and the deputies forced her face-first to the ground, Cammack said. The female deputy then climbed onto Corley’s back and pinned her, while the officers awaited the arrival of a second female deputy, according to the lawyer. After the second female deputy arrived, the two women officers held Corley down and forcibly spread her legs, Cammack said.

This Canadian University Offers a Class on the Business of Marijuana

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

Students at Kwantlen Polytechnic University can now sign up for a class with high stakes: the school in British Columbia is offering a course called “Introduction to Professional Management of Marijuana for Medical Purposes in Canada.”

The class will take place online over 14 weeks, the CBC reports. Since the legality of marijuana is being fought out in the courts in Canada (currently it is only approved for medicinal use, and regulations vary by region), the course will focus on educating students about following the rules to grow a legitimate business. Only 25 growing facilities are currently federally licensed in the country.

Similar courses have already popped up throughout the U.S.: the University of Denver Sturm College of Law offered a class on “Representing the Marijuana Client”; Vanderbilt University School of Law taught “Marijuana Law and Policy”; and Harvard University Law School taught “Tax Planning for Marijuana Dealers.”
