Florida: Medical Marijuana Rumble Between the State Legislature and the Voters

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, August, 19th 2015 by THCFinder

Florida lawmakers are spinning their wheels once again in hopes of creating a functional medical marijuana program in the next legislative session. Republican State Representative Greg Steube refilled a piece of legislation last week aimed at putting the state’s idle Charlotte’s Web law out of its misery by establishing a new, equally hollow program that would do very little to serve the patients of the Sunshine state.

The latest proposal doomed to suffer the wrath of Florida’s skittish State Legislature would undoubtedly strengthen the current medical marijuana directive, mostly because the law, regardless of its passing two years ago, has not yet managed to help a single patient. However, Steube has swooped in with what he believes could be salvation’s wings for the state’s remedial approach to operating a medical marijuana market by increasing the number of cultivation operations, as well as expanding the list of qualified conditions past only those suffering from cancer and seizure disorders.

Steube’s bill would open the program up to patients with HIV/AID, Lou Gehrig’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and any terminal illness. Much like the current law, however, it would not allow patients to smoke marijuana.

Pot-Related Summonses on the Rise in NYC, Especially in Minority Neighborhoods

Category: News | Posted on Tue, August, 18th 2015 by THCFinder

New York City’s posh Upper East Side and East Harlem are mere subway stops apart, but if you live in East Harlem and are black or Latino, you’re 112 times more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession, despite Mayor Bill de Blasio’s campaign promises to end discriminatory policing.  

Are they smoking more pot than their Caucasian counterparts, one might ask? Nope. A 2011National Survey found that Latino and African Americans are less likely to use marijuana than white people.

So what gives in neighborhoods like East New York, Brooklyn, population under 200,000, less than 10 percent white and 35 percent living below the poverty line? East New Yorkers have received the second-highest number of pot possession summonses in New York City. 

The NYPD has issued more than 3,800 pot-related violations in New York City in just the first three months of this year, according to amNew York, putting the force on track to roundly exceed last year’s 13,377 summonses issued. Possessing up to 25 grams of marijuana in private is not a crime in New York State. 

Race and class disparities in drug law enforcement extend across all of New York City, according to areport published by the Drug Policy Alliance that analyzed the cases of 15,324 people arrested for low-level pot possession between March-August of 2014.

Charges Dropped Against Women Who Was Sexually Assaulted During Marijuana Search

One of the most disgusting stories that I have read about all year is the story of Charneshia Corley, who was sexually assaulted by law enforcement during a search for marijuana. The search didn’t occur in a private room at the police headquarters. It occurred in public view in a Texaco parking lot. I cannot fathom how one human could do that to another human, especially in the name of marijuana prohibition. Charneshia was accused of a traffic violation, and moments later a law enforcement officer is probing her private parts for all to see. That’s absolutely horrific. Below is a description of what happened, via the Huffington Post:

“They sexually assaulted, raped me and molested me,” Corley told The Huffington Post on Monday.

Her attorney, Samuel Cammack III, told HuffPost the two deputies asked Corley to remove her pants in full view of passersby.

“She said, ‘No, I don’t have any panties on,’ so the officer told her to bend over and she pulled her pants down for her and went to stick her hand inside of Ms. Corely,” Cammack said.

Corley resisted and the deputies forced her face-first to the ground, Cammack said. The female deputy then climbed onto Corley’s back and pinned her, while the officers awaited the arrival of a second female deputy, according to the lawyer. After the second female deputy arrived, the two women officers held Corley down and forcibly spread her legs, Cammack said.
