The IRS Is Also Abusing 'Marijuana'

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 29th 2013 by THCFinder
By Rob KampiaExecutive director, Marijuana Policy Project:
 
Many people were shocked by recent revelations that the Internal Revenue Service targeted organizations it perceived to be critical of the government.
 
I wasn't shocked in the least.
 
Long before the IRS began singling out groups with the words "tea party" or "patriot" in their names, "marijuana" was a political buzzword that elicited special attention from the IRS. Specifically, nonprofit organizations that contest the federal government's anti-marijuana policies and propaganda are the organizations that appear to experience more scrutiny than most.
 
The Marijuana Policy Project (MPP), of which I am executive director, presents a perfect example. In 2000 and again in 2006, MPP was subjected to grueling audits, despite no evidence of faulty accounting or violations of the IRS' rules governing nonprofits.
 
The first stemmed from a letter sent to the IRS in 1998 by U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), who has spent a good part of her career advocating for the criminalization of marijuana users, including me.
 
Her reason for questioning MPP's tax-exempt status? She received a letter from a single constituent who wrote this to her: "The idea that a bunch of pot purveyors can raise money like this on a tax exempt basis is offensive."

Georgia safety Josh Harvey-Clemons suspended for season opener after marijuana incident

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 29th 2013 by THCFinder
Georgia starting safety Josh Harvey-Clemons has been suspended for the season opener against Clemson after he was implicated in an incident involving marijuana possession and use in a Georgia dorm room on May 15.
Coach Mark Richt announced the suspension during SEC spring meetings on Monday.
 
Harvey-Clemons, who played in 14 games last season and won the starting role this spring, was in a dorm room with teammate Ty Flournoy-Smith, a sophomore tight end, when a resident hall assistant walked by and smelled marijuana coming out of the room. He called police, who found both players inside, but little evidence of marijuana after a search of the area.
 
According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, who obtained the police report, Harvey-Clemons and Flournoy-Smith “exhibited signs of marijuana ingestion” and had bloodshot eyes. Officers found a plastic bag with remnants of what looked like marijuana and a digital scale. Players did admit they had “smoked a blunt.” But other than they’re admission, not hard evidence was found to detain them.
 
However, the incident was reported to the UGA’s Office of Student Conduct and police informed coach Mark Richt, who has yet to make a decision on punishment.

Pat Healy on marijuana situation

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Tue, May, 28th 2013 by THCFinder
If Pat Healy knew what smoking a little weed at his friend's birthday party was going to cause, he never would have done it.
 
"I wish I could go back in time and slap myself," Healy said. "It was a dumb thing to do."
 
On Monday's edition of The MMA Hour, Healy broke his silence on his recent suspension for marijuana use, which kicked off a storm of controversy.
 
Calling in from a vacation in Hawaii, Healy said he smoked marijuana a few weeks out from his UFC 159 fight against Jim Miller and never bothered to think it would be a big deal.
 
"It was about three and a half, four weeks out," Healy said. "I was at a friend's birthday party, just hanging out. To be honest I didn't even think it would be an issue, you know? It was a huge mistake and I just didn't even think."
 
The Team Quest fighter had a breakthrough performance at UFC 159, as he earned Fight of the Night and Submission of the Night bonuses totaling $130,000 after defeating Miller in Newark. When the New Jersey Athletic Control Board post-fight drug tests showed marijuana in his system, though, Miller's win was overturned to a no-contest and he was stripped of his bonuses.
 
Healy broke the news of the test failure and the reason for it on his own, looking to keep bad information from getting out.
