Colorado Asks Supreme Court To Toss Marijuana Lawsuit Filed By Nebraska, Oklahoma

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 28th 2015 by THCFinder

The Colorado Attorney General's Office on Friday asked the U.S. Supreme Court to throw out a lawsuit filed by Nebraska and Oklahoma that contends Colorado's legalization of marijuana is causing an increase in drug crimes in their states.

Attorney General Cynthia Coffman wrote in a brief filed with the high court that the lawsuit's aim to stop Colorado from regulating its recreational marijuana industry is a "dangerous" move that would leave "legalization intact" while neutering the state's ability to police businesses. The court should dismiss the lawsuit, Coffman said.

"Nebraska and Oklahoma concede that Colorado has power to legalize the cultivation and use of marijuana -- a substance that for decades has seen enormous demand and has, until recently, been supplied exclusively through a multi-billion-dollar black market," Coffman wrote. "Yet the Plaintiff States seek to strike down the laws and regulations that are designed to channel demand away from this black market and into a licensed and closely monitored retail system."

Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning and Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt filed the lawsuit in December, alleging that Colorado's legalization of marijuana caused a surge of marijuana trafficking in their states and “created a dangerous gap in the federal drug control system."

The states seek to overturn Colorado's voter-approved marijuana law, arguing that federal law should take precedence over state law. Because marijuana remains illegal under federal law, Colorado's legalization is unconstitutional, the suit contends.

States that have legalized marijuana, for recreational or medical purposes, rely on guidance from Attorney General Eric Holder's office urging federal prosecutors to refrain from targeting state-legal marijuana operations.

Texas Men Facing Life in Prison for Pot Brownies

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 28th 2015 by THCFinder

Everything is bigger in Texas, even when it comes to handing out prison sentences for possession of marijuana. This is the unfortunate horror a couple of Amarillo men now face after learning that a judge could sentence them to life in prison for the pot brownies recently found inside their vehicle.

Earlier last week, a Potter County Sheriff’s deputy witnessed the driver of a Kia Soul commit a minor traffic violation along a busy stretch of interstate, causing him to flip on the old red, white, and blues to inspect the situation more closely. When the officer approached the car, he discovered two people inside, 30-year-old Eli Manna and his passenger, 27-year-old Andrew George.

The usual prequel to a roadside shakedown soon followed: driver’s license, registration, and an unreasonable line of questioning, which eventually made the two men nervous enough to arouse suspicion. It was at this moment, we suppose, when the deputy said something to the effect of, “You boys wouldn’t happen to have any of that marijuana in the vehicle, now would you?”

Of course, the two men likely gave the performance of a lifetime, doing their best to convince the deputy that there was nothing illegal in the car by feeding him lines like, “We don’t even smoke weed,” followed by some nervous chatter about not even drinking that much. But the deputy, having heard every excuse in the book, proceeded to take the encounter to the next level by asking the driver if he would consent to a search.

Being no stranger the Fourth Amendment, the driver refused to let the deputy rip his car apart in search of illegal contraband without a warrant. The officer, however, did not appreciate this refusal, and radioed the Texas Department of Public Safety to come out and unleash a drug-sniffing dog. Unfortunately, this is when the situation turned a bit hairy for Manna and George. When the officer turned the dog loose, it immediately alerted to marijuana in the vehicle. A search uncovered a number of individually wrapped pot brownies, which in this case, comes with the possibility of life without the possibility of parole.

DEA Agents Had Cartel Sex Parties With Prostitutes While Working In Colombia

Category: Odd | Posted on Sat, March, 28th 2015 by THCFinder
 

dea sex parties columbiaMarijuana activists have been saying for decades that the DEA needs to be de-funded. The agency has caused so much misery and ruined so many lives in the name of the drug war. The money that goes to fund their failed war on drugs could be going to schools, roads, or just about anything else. A story broke yesterday which highlighted just how out of control DEA agents can be. Per Politico:

Agents of the Drug Enforcement Administration reportedly had “sex parties” with prostitutes hired by drug cartels in Colombia, according to a new inspector general report released by the Justice Department on Thursday.

In addition, Colombian police officers allegedly provided “protection for the DEA agents’ weapons and property during the parties,” the report states. Ten DEA agents later admitted attending the parties, and some of the agents received suspensions of two to 10 days.

The stunning allegations are part of an investigation by the Justice Department’s inspector general into claims of sexual harassment and misconduct within DEA; FBI; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; and the U.S. Marshals Service. The IG’s office found that DEA did not fully cooperate with its probe.

‘Some of the agents received suspensions of two to 10 days.’ Some? So not all of them were suspended? And those that were, were only suspended for 2 to 10 days? This is your tax money at work America. As many people have said on social media, if this isn’t enough to get meaningful change in our federal government’s law enforcement system, what will? The infractions occurred between 2005 and 2008.
