Victory In Colorado: Unscientific THC DUID Bill Defeated In Senate

Category: News | Posted on Thu, April, 25th 2013 by THCFinder
Earlier this month we posted about an unscientific DUID (driving under the influence of drugs) bill advancing in Colorado, which would find someone guilty based on having an arbitrary amount of THC in their system, which would be determined through a blood draw – this is the 4th year such a measure has been discussed in Colorado’s Legislature. The measure passed through the House earlier this month, but is now officially dead, as it was voted down in the Senate Judiciary Committee by a vote of 4-1.
 
This is a strong victory for civil liberties and sanity in Colorado, as the proposed 5 ng/ml limit for THC has no scientific basis, and would lead to unimpaired drivers being found guilty as even active THC can linger in the body for days – not to mention that there’s nothing wrong with current DUID laws, which requires proof of impairment for a prosecution to take place. The victory is also a defeat for the White House and Drug Czar, as implementing these types of policies, state-by-state, is one of their top priorities in “combating” drug use. This measure’s defeat also shows that despite the State of Colorado legalizing marijuana possession, lawmakers aren’t falling for obvious propaganda, and blindly approving inappropriate laws that would easily appease prohibitionists.

Oregon Senate reduces criminal penalties for marijuana possession, manufacturing

Category: News | Posted on Thu, April, 25th 2013 by THCFinder
SALEM -- Defendants found guilty of marijuana possession and manufacturing could face reduced penalties under two bills the Oregon Senate passed Wednesday.
Senate Bill 40 passed 22-7. It would make the penalties for marijuana possession and manufacturing "more in line with what justice should be on these sorts of issues," said Sen. Jeff Kruse, R-Roseburg.
 
Among other changes, the bill would:
 
reduce unlawful possession of less than an ounce of marijuana to a Class B violation, punishable by a presumptive fine of $260
reduce unlawful possession of one ounce or more, but less than four ounces, of marijuana to a Class B misdemeanor, punishable by maximum of six months in jail, $2,500 fine, or both
reduce unlawful possession of four ounces or more of marijuana to Class C felony, punishable by maximum of five years in prison, $125,00 fine, or both
reduce unlawful manufacture of marijuana to Class B felony, punishable by maximum of 10 years in prison, $250,000 fine, or both
Lawmakers also voted 18-11 to pass Senate Bill 82, which would eliminate the requirement that most defendants convicted of possessing less than an ounce of marijuana have their driving privileges suspended.

Supreme Court Rules Against Automatic Deportation For Marijuana Possession

Category: News | Posted on Wed, April, 24th 2013 by THCFinder
In a 7-2 vote on Tuesday, the Supreme Court ruled that deportation is not mandatory if a legal immigrant is convicted of possessing a small amount of marijuana.
 
The ruling was in response to Moncrieffe v. Holder. Immigration officials automatically deported Adrian Moncrieffe, a Jamaican citizen who has lived in the United States since he was three years old, after he was convicted under Georgia law for possession and intent to distribute 1.3 grams of marijuana.
 
“Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote on behalf of the majority that a conviction for marijuana possession does not rise to the level of an aggravated felony if it is a small amount and the defendant was not being paid for it,” reported Reuters.
