Arrest of 94-year-old Veteran for Felony Marijuana Charges Highlights Absurdity of Drug War
The War on Drugs may have reached its pinnacle of absurdity when 94-year-old World War II veteran Douglas Ponischil was arrested for felony marijuana charges earlier this year. The pot had been mailed to his home on someone else’s behalf, and law enforcement swept him up with no further investigation.
The case against Mr. Ponischil, who miraculously survived a Nazi U-Boat attack, was dismissed on June 30 after months of negotiating with prosecutors by attorney Christopher Connelly.
Only in a thoroughly immoral and baseless system of prohibition can something like this happen. What began in the late 1970s as a crusade against “the devil’s candy” is now well-known as a miserable failure. That is, unless you are interested in giving the State tremendous power and billions of dollars in civil asset forfeiture. The shell of purported righteousness has fallen away from the War on Drugs to reveal its sickly core.
An analysis released five days ago by the Pew Charitable Trusts confirmed the ineffectiveness and waste of the drug war. The report, titled “Federal Drug Sentencing Laws Bring High Cost, Low Return,” describes how mass incarceration, mandatory minimums, and billions of dollars per year have done nothing to curb drug use or supply, while caging tens of thousands for minor roles in trafficking.
White Widow (Hybrid)
White Widow buds are covered in crystals, giving it an almost sugared look. A relatively new strain developed in the early 1990's, it has been the subject of many rap songs and was frequently mentioned in the television show Weeds. It is a very potent and powerful variety of cannabis, available on the top of all Dutch coffee shop menus. The buzz is powerful and energetic yet social, be prepared for a strong high.

Super Lemon Haze (Hybrid)
The Super Lemon Haze is a superstar. This strain swept first prize in Amsterdams Cannabis Cup for two consecutive years (2008 and 2009), also taking second in the Sativa Cup in 2009. The popularity of this strain stands on the shoulders of its predecessors. The father, Super Silver Haze, was already famous, taking high accolades and multiple prizes throughout the late 1990s. However, not all children of the famous go on to earn fame in their own right. It takes the right combination, and in this case, that combination involves a Lemon Skunk mother, a selection from a Citral x Skunk cross.
Teens find a new use for e-cigarettes: Vaping marijuana
Teenagers have discovered a new way to inhale marijuana — e-cigarette vaporizers, according to a study released Monday.
About 27% of high school students who have used both marijuana and e-cigarettes reported using the devices to vaporize cannabis. Those most likely to vaporize pot with e-cigarettes included males and younger students.
E-cigarettes are designed to vaporize solutions containing nicotine, said co-author Meghan Rabbitt Morean. But, she noted, “teenagers are resourceful, and it was only a matter of time.”
“It’s so much easier to conceal e-cigarette pot use," said Morean, an assistant professor at
