Seattle Cop Arrested in Major Interstate Marijuana Trafficking Ring
A Seattle police officer served as the “muscle” for a sizable interstate marijuana smuggling operation run by his brother-in-law—who hired the cop because he was family, federal authorities announced Monday.
Alex Chapackdee, 44, allegedly helped send “hundreds of pounds of marijuana” from Seattle, where recreational cannabis is legal, to Baltimore, where it most certainly is not, as well as other locations on the East Coast.
In return for conspiring to send “at least 100 kilograms” of Washington state weed across the country, Chapackdee was paid $10,000 a month, according to charges filed by the local U.S. Attorney.
Chapackdee would serve as the “muscle” during transactions and ensure the money made the trip back to Washington safely, earning another $15,000 for each successful round-trip venture.
Medical Marijuana Implodes in Florida—Whose Fault Is It?
This year, Florida state lawmakers had a clear mandate: Figure out how to give the state’s voters their constitutionally mandated weed, and do it by May 5.
On the same day they helped hand Donald Trump a not-so-historic Electoral College victory, Florida voters told their legislature—loudly, by an overwhelming 72 percent to 28 percent margin—that they wanted legal medical marijuana.
But the problem with Amendment 2 was that it left the job only partly done—it only modified the state constitution to say seriously ill Floridians could have medical cannabis. It left the how—how many dispensaries, how many growers, how is this going to work and how can I alleviate my AIDS or cancer-related suffering, please—to state lawmakers.
The Bubble Gum originated in Indiana in the 1970s. After making the rounds in the States, the genetics were taken to Holland during the 1990s, where a stable interbred variety was developed. Named Bubble Gum from the start, this variety quickly acquired a reputation for its sweetness, so much that the name "Bubble Gum" has been widely borrowed for all sorts of seeds and weed. The winner of many accolades, Bubble Gum has placed repeatedly in the High Times Cannabis Cup: 3rd place in 1994 for best coffeeshop product, 2nd place for best bioproduct and 2nd for the overall Cannabis Cup in 1995, and 2nd place again in 1999 for the overall Cannabis Cup.
Pot with your chardonnay? Philly mayor suggests marijuana at liquor stores
A number of Pennsylvania officials support decriminalizing or even legalizing recreational marijuana but Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney has a bold idea: selling it at state-run liquor stores.
"The hardest place to get served underage in Philadelphia when I was growing up was a Pennsylvania state liquor store," Kenney told WHYY, in a recent interview.
Kenney, a Democrat, has long been a supporter of legalizing marijuana. This proposal, he said, would benefit the city and the state.
