Boat With $3 Million Worth Of Marijuana Seized In Channel Islands

Category: News | Posted on Thu, March, 26th 2015 by THCFinder

A panga boat stocked with nearly three tons of marijuana worth about $3 million was spotted in the Channel Islands, and three men on board -- all citizens of Mexico -- were arrested, authorities said Monday.

 

Alfonso Ramirez-Lopez, 40; Marco Montes-Lopez, 46; and Daniel Garcia-Sanchez, 32, are being held without bail on federal drug trafficking charges, according to U.S. attorney's office in Los Angeles. 

 

The boat was spotted about 12:40 p.m. Saturday near San Miguel Island by an off-duty officer with the state’s Department of Fish and Wildlife, according to a sworn affidavit by a DEA agent obtained by The Times.

 

A U.S. Customs and Border Protection Black Hawk helicopter was deployed to the island, about 45 miles southwest of Santa Barbara. After the three suspected smugglers were spotted, the helicopter landed and the men were arrested, according to the affidavit.

 

The three men told federal agents that they were from Sinaloa and that they had been at sea for three days, according to the affidavit.

 

The men were paid $1,000 before the trip, and after delivering the bales of marijuana they expected to receive an additional $3,000, according to the affidavit.

 

The men expected to land near Monterey or San Simeon, but after running low on fuel, they stopped at the island.

 

The 40-foot-long panga boat was towed to the U.S. Coast Guard’s base in San Pedro.

 

The trio will be arraigned on April 10 and are scheduled to appear in court on April 6 for a preliminary hearing.

Tafts would own marijuana farm

Category: News | Posted on Thu, March, 26th 2015 by THCFinder

Two scions of the city's storied Taft family have invested in the Butler County property that would serve as one of the 10 marijuana-producing farms should voters legalize marijuana in November.

Brothers Woody Taft, a private equity investor, and Dudley Taft Jr., a noted local musician, expressed support Wednesday for the ResponsibleOhio ballot initiative for a constitutional amendment. The language would allow adults over 21 to use marijuana and children, with parental consent, to get medical cannabis to treat illness.

Under the initiative, adults over 21 also would be able to obtain a license to grow up to four marijuana plants for their personal use, but not for sale.

In a statement issued through ResponsibleOhio, Woody Taft said: "I love this state, and I care deeply about our economic and social well-being.Our current laws are archaic and cruel to the people in Ohio who need medical marijuana. The Ohio I know is more compassionate than that."

The brothers are the great-great-grandnephews of President William Howard Taft. They are cousins to Sen. Robert A. Taft Jr. of Ohio and former Ohio Gov. Robert A. Taft III.

Category: News | Posted on Wed, March, 25th 2015 by THCFinder
 

federal medical marijuana billRep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) and Rep. Don Young (R-AK) have introduced the House companion to a groundbreaking bill legalizing marijuana for medical use that was introduced in the Senate two weeks ago by Senators Cory Booker (D-NJ), Rand Paul (R-KY), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). Senators Dean Heller (R-NV) and Barbara Boxer (D-CA) co-sponsored the bill soon after.

“Reforming our nation’s failed drug policies is one of the few issues Democrats and Republicans can agree on,” said Bill Piper, director of national affairs for the Drug Policy Alliance.   “The tide is quickly turning against marijuana prohibition and the war on drugs in general. ”

The Compassionate Access, Research Expansion and Respect States – CARERS – Act is the most comprehensive medical marijuana bill ever introduced in Congress. The CARERS Act will do the following:

  • Allow states to legalize marijuana for medical use without federal interference
  •  

  • Permit interstate commerce in cannabidiol (CBD) oils
  •  

  • Reschedule marijuana to schedule II
  •  

  • Allow banks to provide checking accounts and other financial services to marijuana dispensaries
  •  

  • Allow Veterans Administration physicians to recommend medical marijuana to veterans
  •  

  • Eliminate barriers to medical marijuana research.
  •
