Wash. police dogs not smelling marijuana anymore

Category: News | Posted on Fri, May, 31st 2013 by THCFinder
BREMERTON, Wash. (AP) — Some police departments in Washington state have stopped training their new dogs to sniff around for marijuana after voters last fall legalized recreational pot use.
 
Other departments are planning or in the midst of retraining veteran dogs to ignore marijuana.
 
The law decriminalized possession of up to an ounce of the drug for individuals over 21 years old. It also barred the distribution and growth of marijuana outside the state-approved system.
 
Police say that having a K-9 unit that doesn’t alert to pot will lessen challenges to obtaining search warrants because the dog won’t be pointing out possible legal amounts of the drug.
 
But some observers say police shouldn’t be making any changes because officers will still need to investigate illegal growing operations, as well as pot use and possession.

New York lawmakers push to decriminalize marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Fri, May, 31st 2013 by THCFinder
Every 42 seconds, someone in America is arrested for marijuana possession.
 
This week, the state assembly took a step to cut that number — in New York, at least.
 
In the race to legalize marijuana, the pace setter is Colorado. Here in New York, the state assembly has taken the first step toward relaxing the experience of getting caught with the drug in public.
 
Lawmakers voted to decriminalize the possession of up to 15 grams of marijuana. The vote is significant because of how it could redefine the NYPD’s controversial practice of stop and frisk.
 
The New York Civil Liberties Union’s analysis of the  NYPD data shows the more than half a million people were stopped last year under the program. Out of those stops, 729 guns were found. but the NYCLU found over 5,000 people were arrested for marijuana possession.
 
Senate republicans are against the bill. One in particular, Senator Golden from Brooklyn says “we should not be sending a signal across the state that marijuana is okay.”

Marijuana publications sue over treat-pot-magazines-like-porn law

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, May, 31st 2013 by THCFinder
After we reported about an element of the main marijuana bill that treated pot magazines like porn, a spokesman for High Times announced an intent to sue if the section wasn't cut. Shortly thereafter, attorney David Lane said a suit would be forthcoming if the edict became law.
Lane wasn't bluffing. Mere days after Governor John Hickenlooper signed the bill containing the passage, he filed suit on behalf of High Times and two other mags. Details, the documents and more below.
 
As we've reported, the law originally known as House Bill 13-1317 calls for "a requirement that magazines whose primary focus is marijuana or marijuana businesses are only sold in retail marijuana stores or behind the counter in establishments where persons under twenty-one years of age are present."
 
In other words, a convenience store wanting to stock weed-oriented publications won't be able to do so in standard racks easily accessible to customers. Rather, issues will be next to porn mags, with their covers presumably shielded to protect children -- and customers will have to ask clerks to grab copies for them.
 
Marijuana lawyer Warren Edson was left slack-jawed by this requirement. Proponents of Amendment 64, which allows adults 21 and over in Colorado to use and possess small amounts of cannabis, "said to regulate marijuana like alcohol," he told us, "but apparently, our legislature wants to regulate it like porn.
