Tennessee AG Has Nashville and Memphis Decriminalization Ordinances in His Sights
Both Nashville and Memphis passed citywide ordinances earlier this year decriminalizing the possession of marijuana in small amounts. The goal of these measures is to prevent otherwise law-biding citizens from being entered into the criminal justice system simply for holding a little weed. In doing so, officials hoped that law enforcement will have more time to focus on more pressing issues, like rape, murder and all of the other monstrous indiscretions that typically frighten the majority of civil society.
However, Tennessee Attorney General Herbert Slatery claims the decriminalization ordinances are worthless in the eyes of the state. In a recent opinion, Slatery said the two cities could not give their respective police departments the freedom to issue small fines to those caught in possession of up to a half ounce of marijuana because that would go against the grain of state law.

Foes of Denver Marijuana Lounges Roll Out Opposition Strategy
No sooner had Denver become the first city in the country to allow adult-use marijuana consumption at bars, cafes and restaurants than foes began concocting ways to undermine it.
Fifty-four percent of Denver voters supported Initiative 300 on Election Day last week. Businesses can now pursue a special license to allow on-site cannabis consumption, subject to some strict rules as well as buy-in from the local merchants’ association.
Whichever business is the first to win a permit would become the first public place in America where cannabis use is strictly allowed that is not also a marijuana dispensary. Most legalization measures across the country include outright bans on public consumption, with violators subject to a fine. To date, the only dispensaries that have on-site consumption permits are in San Francisco.
Silver Jack (Hybrid)
This tart and sweet and VERY aromatic strain is a combination of our Jack Herer father plant and a tall and bushy Super Silver Haze Mother plant. You better have a good odor filter because this strain gets real stinky when the SSH and Jack flowers but it is worth it for the sweet flavored smoke it produces.
California: Marijuana Cases Are Already Being Laughed Out of Court
Now that California has made marijuana fully legal, there are some reports starting to trickle down the press pipe that suggest pot-related offenses are already being essentially laughed out of court – even for those offenders who were quite obviously preparing to sling the herb on the black market.
On Tuesday, Southern California Public Radio (KPCC) published a conversation with a local attorney which suggested that with the passing of Proposition 64, an initiative that legalized the cultivation, possession and sale of marijuana, many courts have already begun to disregard the majority of pot-related cases. In fact, this appears to be the situation, even when the charges involve transgressions that were once considered a felonious offense.
