Recent Poll Shows Alaska Marijuana Legalization Winning By Large Margin

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, October, 10th 2014 by THCFinder
alaska-marijuana-legalization-winningAlaska voters will be voting on marijuana legalization next month, along with Oregon and Washington D.C.. While case law makes marijuana legal in Alaska already, it’s far from the legalization model that is in place in Washington and Colorado where consumers can go into a store and buy marijuana for recreational purposes. Most polls that I have seen out of Alaska have shown the initiative barely winning, or even losing. However, those polls were flawed for several reasons. The most recent poll shows the initiative winning, and by a large margin. Per AmandaCoyne.Com:
 
According to a question on a poll conducted by local pollster Ivan Moore, Ballot Measure 2, which would tax and regulate marijuana like alcohol, is winning in the state by about 18 percentage points, 57.2 percent to 38.7 percent. The question about the measure was paid for by the group working to legalize pot in Alaska, and was asked as part of a larger poll that Moore was conducting. The sample size was 568 likely voters, and was conducted Sept. 26-30. The margin of error is 4.1 percent. (I’m waiting for the complete demographics.)
 
Taylor Bickford, who’s running the legalization campaign, said that the numbers seem a little optimistic to him. Older internal polls showed the campaign winning, but by a slimmer margin, he said. However, the poll is significant in that it’s the first public poll that asks the question exactly as it will appear on the ballot. A highly touted August PPP poll which showed the measure losing messed up the wording in the question. Further, the PPP poll didn’t call cell phones, which are a key demographic in this race.
 
This is great news for marijuana reform in Alaska and for the nation. Every state that legalizes marijuana builds momentum for other states to legalize, and eventually, for the entire country to legalize at the federal level. I’m very hopeful that we will see Oregon, Washington D.C., and Alaska all pass marijuana legalization next month. If you are able to do so, I urge you to donate to the Alaska campaign as they try to make their final push to get their message out to voters.

Woman Killed Over $5 Worth Of Cannabis

Category: News | Posted on Fri, October, 10th 2014 by THCFinder
killed-over-cannabisWhen a stoner thinks of marijuana, they tend to think of music, hanging out, relaxing, and chilling with friends. Most of the time, someone who uses cannabis relates the plant to positive feelings. But when a non stoner thinks of cannabis, they usually think of promiscuous sex, obnoxious teenagers, and lazy bags of bones that do nothing to contribute to society. Pretty different right? It's easy to get mad at these people for not thinking of cannabis in a positive light but remember that the plant has a negative stigma attached to it that stretches decades in to our history. Another unfortunate effect of this stigma? The terrible situations that arise from a plant being illegal.
 
Take for instance the North Las Vegas high school junior that is being prosecuted as an adult over shooting a woman over what the cops are saying was a $5 discrepancy in a marijuana purchase. Last Wednesday, the arrest report was released that says that the 16 year old high school student was arrested on September 11th after questioning of North Las Vegas and Clark County School District students. The murder happened on September 5th of this year.
 
What happened to cause such a brutal act of violence? Andrea Lafon, the 20 year old that passed away, refused to let the teenager pay $35 for $40 worth of weed while she was sitting in her car in a North Las Vegas neighborhood. Lafon died the following day. The name of the shooter hasn't been released, as they are a juvenile. Associated Press is withholding the name of the teen until sentencing.
 
Violence and cannabis are only associated because of the illegality of cannabis. Because the plant is shunned from societal norms, it requires people to be a certain type of risk taker to get a hold of it. By putting cannabis in the same group as heroin, it allows for dangerous scenarios like this to arise. If cannabis was not such a strictly hated substance, incidents like this wouldn't happen.

Man Arrested After Cops Find Pot WHERE?!

Category: Odd | Posted on Thu, October, 9th 2014 by THCFinder

My mother works in a hospital as a security officer. She's a tough lady, having to oversee things such as patient admittance, problematic psychiatric patients, and autopsies. Needless to say, she's definitely seen some crazy stuff at her stint in this hospital. But it's a job and my mom is a tough lady so she handles the challenges like no other.
 
One time, she told me a story about a woman that was very overweight, to the point where she was brought to the hospital for fear of severe health issues. The nurses in the hospital noticed a bad skin rash on the woman while they were giving her a sponge bath and upon further inspection, noticed that a single Oreo cookie had lodged itself in the woman's skin and had begun to cause the rash to flare. It's kind of a gross story but you'll understand this somewhat awkward introduction in a second.
 
Police officers pulled over Christopher Mitchell, 42, and Keithian Robers, 38, early in June for not wearing seat belts in their vehicle. When the cops asked why the two weren't wearing the belts, Mitchell stated that he was too big for the seatbelt, being a very robust man. But the men apparently didn't appear to confident in themselves and their nervous behavior caused the cops to summon a K-9 unit to check for drugs in the car.
 
The dog alerted the cops to the presence of narcotics in the car and the officers searched the men and the vehicle. When they searched Mitchell, they found more than they bargained for. The man had stashed not only 23 grams of marijuana in his stomach folds but also uncovered a handgun, $7000 cash, and a baggie of cocaine as well. Roberts was charged with possession in addition to Mitchell getting a ticket for not wearing his seatbelt. The report didn't state whether the weed was bagged or not.
