DMX arrested in South Carolina for marijuana possession

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Wed, August, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
dmx-arrested-for-cannabisRapper DMX can't seem to keep himself out of the slammer.
 
The embattled musician, 42, who has been arrested too many times to count, was a passenger in a truck that was pulled over in South Carolina Tuesday night — initially for making an illegal U-turn.
 
Upon being stopped cops said they found weed in the truck close to where the rapper was sitting, and that DMX smelled like he had been drinking, according to a police report obtained by TMZ.
 
One police man recognized the rapper and asserted that a warrant was out for his arrest, stemming from a previous driving without a license offense.
 
The "Party Up" rapper was taken to jail after several more bags of weed were found in the car in a search.
 
But DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, contests he was set up. The exchange with authorities was captured on video by a female companion.

White House Won't Say If Obama's Medical Marijuana Stance May Be Swayed By Sanjay Gupta

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, August, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
obamas-mmj-stanceWASHINGTON -- The White House declined to weigh in Tuesday on whether President Barack Obama has changed his position on medical marijuana use after the president's onetime choice for surgeon general, Sanjay Gupta, reversed his stance and apologized for misleading the public on the drug's effects.
 
During the daily press briefing, CQ-Roll Call reporter Steve Dennis asked White House spokesman Josh Earnest if the administration had any reaction to Gupta's Aug. 9 column, "Why I changed my mind on weed," in which Gupta explores the discrepancy between the Drug Enforcement Administration's classification of marijuana as a Schedule I drug and scientific research demonstrating its benefits. Gupta, who serves as CNN's chief medical expert, not only apologized for dismissing the evidence from medical marijuana patients, but said he had concluded that marijuana has a low potential for abuse and "very legitimate medical applications."
 
Dennis also asked if Obama had personally been looking at the issue, given that national polls show rising support for marijuana legalization since he took office.
 
Earnest ducked the question, responding, "I have to confess I did not see the Sanjay Gupta column you're referring to, so it's hard for me to comment at this point."
 
The Obama administration has cracked down hard on medical marijuana, even in states that have legalized its use. A recent report found that this administration spent nearly $300 million on medical marijuana intervention through lawsuits, indictments and asset forfeiture attempts by the Justice Department. Over the past few years, the Internal Revenue Service has also targeted medical marijuana dispensaries, forcing many of them to the brink of closure, and largely ignoring the fact that many such businesses were in compliance with state laws.
 
But as the White House continues to wage war on pot, public opinion has shifted in the opposite direction. A HuffPost/YouGov poll conducted in April found that 51 percent of Americans said marijuana should be "legalized, taxed and regulated like alcohol." An earlier Pew Research Center survey also found majority support among Americans for marijuana legalization.
