Category: Celebrities | Posted on Tue, May, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
Seventeen-year-old rap star Chief Keef was arrested on Monday.
According to a police report obtained by TMZ, the "Finally Rich" rapper, whose real name is Keith Cozart, was busted for allegedly smoking marijuana at an upscale Atlanta hotel.
Cozart, who shot to fame in 2012 after catching the attention of fellow rappers Kanye West and 50 Cent, was initially booked for disorderly conduct, but a police report later specified that marijuana was involved.
It isn’t his first run in with the law, the rapper has been arrested at least twice before - in January of 2011 for heroin manufacture distribution, which landed him on house arrest, and again in December of that year for aggravated assault with a weapon.
Taking to Twitter after his release Monday, Cozart wrote ""Jus Got Out Of Dekalb County jail In Atlanta Mad As f--k."
The "I Don't Like" singer didn't appear to be fazed by the addition to his record - on Tuesday he joked with Twitter followers about how quickly his booking photo made rounds online.

Three Medical Marijuana Measures on Todays Ballot (Vote YES on F)
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, May, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
LA has tried for more than five years to balance medical needs with neighborhood concerns about medical marijuana dispensaries operating in the city. Three measures on Tuesday's ballot seek to either curb the number of dispensaries or allow new ones to open.
Measure D would restrict the number of medical marijuana dispensaries to the original 135 approved before a 2007 requirement that dispensaries register with the city. The measure would apply a tax of $60 for every $1,000 in sales.
"Why don't we start with a conservative strategy?" said Los Angeles Councilmember Bill Rosendahl, who credited medical marijuana with helping his fight against cancer. "We take a deep breath, see how it goes, and then we can go from there."
A rival proposal was placed on the ballot after a signature drive. Measure F would allow for unlimited dispensaries and call for a 20-percent sales tax.
The measure would require worker background checks and several stringent requirements, according to supporters. Proponents also claim zoning language, which outlines where dispensaries could operate, in the measure ensures the number would be limited to about 400.
"Proposition F provides a sufficient number of dispensaries that allows patients to have the access they need to medical marijuana," said Michael Bustamante, of the "Yes on F, No on D" campaign.

Senator Liz Krueger has announced that she intends to file legislation in New York aimed at legalizing the recreational use, possession, private cultivation and state-licensed sales of marijuana for adults. The measure comes as New York’s Legislature continues to push forward a measure to legalize medical marijuana – a proposal that’s already been approved by the state’s House, and is expected to pass the Senate.
“It is my intention as a New York State senator to soon introduce a law that would actually decriminalize, regulate and tax marijuana in New York,” stated Krueger last week.
The measure, which will be titled theMarijuana, Regulation, and Taxation Act, would authorize adults to legally cultivate up to 6 plants and possess up to 2 ounces. The proposal would establish state-licensed retail outlets, which would be regulated through the New York State Liquor Authority.
