Arrest of 94-year-old Veteran for Felony Marijuana Charges Highlights Absurdity of Drug War

Category: News | Posted on Sun, September, 6th 2015 by THCFinder

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.

Would Donald Trump Be A Marijuana Friendly President?

If you follow politics, or for that matter if you follow any media outlet in America, then you know that the 2016 Election is in full swing, and there are a number of candidates that are running for President of the United States. The candidate that has been receiving the most attention lately, for better or worse depending on how you feel about him, is clearly Donald Trump. Donald Trump has been a long time businessman, has been a reality TV star, and is one of the most controversial figures in America right now. Putting all of his other political views aside, how does he feel about marijuana?

As seems to be the case on a lot of things with Donald Trump, the answer is not exactly clear. Donald Trump has made conflicting statements over the years in regards to marijuana. Tom Angell highlighted some of those statements in an article that he wrote for Marijuana.Com:

In 1990, Trump called for legalizing all drugs. ”We’re losing badly the war on drugs. You have to legalize drugs to win that war,” he said. “You have to take the profit away from these drug czars… What I’d like to do maybe by bringing it up is cause enough controversy that you get into a dialogue on the issue of drugs so people will start to realize that this is the only answer; there is no other answer.”

But at the 2015 Conservative Political Action Conference, Trump stated that he’s against the legalization of marijuana. ”I think it’s bad, and I feel strongly about that,” he said. “They’ve got a lot of problems going on right now in Colorado, some big problems.” However, when asked about the states’ rights aspect to marijuana laws, Trump said, “If they vote for it, they vote for it.

“Medical marijuana is another thing,” he added. “I think medical marijuana, 100 percent.”

Teens find a new use for e-cigarettes: Vaping marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sun, September, 6th 2015 by THCFinder

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.”

Vaporizers give kids a better way to hide what they're inhaling.

“It’s so much easier to conceal e-cigarette pot use," said Morean,  an assistant professor at Oberlin College. "Everybody knows that characteristic smell of marijuana, but this vapor is different. It’s possible that teenagers are using pot in a much less detectable way.”
