'Breaking Bad' Copycat Gets Slap on Wrist for Home Pot Farm

Category: News | Posted on Wed, June, 3rd 2015 by THCFinder

High school chemistry teacher Susan McKay turned her plush seven-bedroom home into a mini cannabis farm, she testified, because she was overwhelmed by personal tragedy after one son committed suicide and another was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis.

Sound familiar? Although McKay’s TV counterpart Walter White produced crystal meth to make ends meet, the 58-year-old teacher decided to stick with a gentler operation. She had been running her pot farm for the last several years in her country house in north Wales.

According to the Mirror, she bemoaned her decision to grow pot, saying it was based on “bad judgment.”

The real-life "Breaking Bad" operation was discovered after McKay’s other son Michael, 27, was stopped for driving without headlights while on his way to his mother’s home. The police smelled and found pot in the car, so they decided to search McKay's house as well.  

For her growing area, McKay used three large bedrooms that were equipped with black tents, silver foil, ventilation tubes and one bathroom for drying. Her house is surrounded by high walls and CCTV, which she said was because of her dogs.

After her arrest—but prior to her trial at the end of May—McKay was allowed to continue working at the high school.

Delaware House decriminalizes marijuana possession

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, June, 2nd 2015 by THCFinder

WILMINGTON, Del. — Delaware House lawmakers on Tuesday approved legislation that would treat simple marijuana possession and personal use by adults like a traffic violation, replacing criminal penalties with civil fines.

The bill passed the House by a 24-14 vote, and now heads to the Senate. Gov. Jack Markell supports decriminalization. No House Republicans voted in favor of the legislation on Tuesday.

Some opponents said decriminalization would embolden drug dealers operating in a black market. Others say it could prevent police from initiating important searches on suspicion of simple marijuana possession.

Under language added by an amendment, Delawareans under the age of 18 would still face criminal penalties for possessing marijuana. Those between the ages of 18 and 21 would face criminal penalties upon their second arrest.

That change to the legislation caused angst among the bill's opponents and its supporters, who questioned why juveniles would be treated differently than adults when caught with pot.

Congress Voting On Numerous Amendments To Reign In Troubled DEA

As the U.S. House of Representatives considers the Fiscal Year 2016 Commerce, Justice, and Science Appropriations bill today and tomorrow, legislators could vote on at least seven amendments designed to reduce the power of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and cut its budget.

The DEA has existed for more than 40 years, but little attention has been given to the role the agency has played in fueling mass incarceration, racial disparities and other problems exacerbated by the drug war. Congress has rarely scrutinized the agency, its actions or its budget, instead deferring to DEA administrators on how best to deal with drug-related issues.

That all has changed recently after a series of scandals that sparked several hearings in the House and Senate and forced the resignation of the DEA’s beleaguered head, Administrator Michele Leonhart.

“There’s unprecedented support on both sides of the aisle for ending the federal war on marijuana and letting states set their own drug policies based on science, compassion, health, and human rights,” said Bill Piper, director of national affairs for the Drug Policy Alliance. “The more the DEA blocks sensible reforms the more they will see their agency’s power and budget come under deeper scrutiny.”

The Drug Policy Alliance recently released a new report, The Scandal-Ridden DEA: Everything You Need to Know. The report and a comprehensive set of background resources about our campaign to rein in the DEA are available at: www.drugpolicy.org/DEA
