Ariz. court: Cops can't keep Rx marijuana patients pot

Category: News | Posted on Sat, July, 13th 2013 by THCFinder
az-police-potPHOENIX –– Medical marijuana patients whose drugs are taken by police are entitled to get it back, the Arizona Supreme Court has ruled.
In a brief order, the justices rejected arguments by prosecutors that the drug is strictly regulated by the federal government, leaving police legally powerless to turn marijuana over to anyone else. They gave no reason for their ruling.
 
The order most immediately affects Valerie Okun, whose drugs were taken from her nearly two years ago on Interstate 8 near Yuma. While she was never prosecuted -- she has a valid medical marijuana card from California -- sheriff’s deputies refused to return the drugs.
But Yuma County Sheriff Leon Wilmot told Capitol Media Services on Tuesday he’s still not ready to hand over the marijuana. He hopes to get the case before the U.S. Supreme Court.
 
If he succeeds, that could affect more than the immediate question of when police have to return marijuana taken from medical cardholders.
 
It presents an opportunity for the nation’s high court to look at the obvious conflict between laws in places like Arizona where at least some individuals can buy and have marijuana, and federal statutes which consider possession by anyone other than authorized researchers a felony. And that could pave the way for Supreme Court to finally rule whether states have an inherent right to enact their own marijuana laws.
 
Yavapai County Attorney Sheila Polk said federal court intervention is necessary.
 
“I find it a bit frustrating that Arizona’s marching ahead with facilitating and implementing the availability of marijuana, a controlled substance, in conflict with federal law,’’ said Polk, who chairs the Arizona Prosecuting Attorneys’ Advisory Council. She said a court needs to “deal with the issue of federal preemption head-on.’’
 
Okun initially was stopped at a Border Patrol checkpoint. Officers searched her vehicle after a dog alerted on it, finding marijuana and hashish.
 
The Border Patrol turned the matter over to county officials. But charges against her were dropped because she is enrolled in California’s Medical Marijuana Program; Arizona’s Medical Marijuana Act recognizes cards issued in other states.
 
Okun then asked the court to return the three-fourths of an ounce of marijuana that was seized. While the judge agreed, Ralph Ogden, who was the sheriff at that time, did not.

Groups Want $2 Bills To Send Message On Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sat, July, 13th 2013 by THCFinder
mj-group-2billsSOUTHFIELD (WWJ/AP) - Advocates pushing for broader legalization of marijuana in Michigan hope to send a message of support — and economic clout — by spending $2 bills.
 
Supporters of the cause are being asked to spend at least one of the typically less-used $2 bills for every cash purchase for the three weeks. The effort kicked off on Wednesday.
 
Steven Greene, a 45-year-old South Lyon resident, said he picked up $200 in $2 bills from a credit union in Southfield. Greene, a state-registered user of medical marijuana and a caregiver licensed by the state to grow medical marijuana for others, said the use of the bills could remind people of possible tax revenue from marijuana sales.
 
“People will also realize, if you arrest us, you’re taking that same money out of circulation, and you’re spending tax dollars to put us in jail,” he said.
 
 
Michigan voters approved marijuana for some chronic medical conditions in 2008, but the state Supreme Court ruled in January that medical marijuana dispensaries aren’t allowed. Michigan has roughly 130,000 registered users of medical marijuana.
