States Spend $3.6 Billion on Marijuana Enforcement

Category: News | Posted on Tue, June, 4th 2013 by THCFinder
The 50 states and the District of Columbia spend a combined $3.6 billion each year enforcing bans on marijuana while arrest disparities continue to increase along racial lines, according to a report purporting to show how prohibiting the drug has failed.
 
“The War on Marijuana in Black and White,” from the American Civil Liberties Union used  statistics from the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting Program and the U.S. Census, among other sources. It purports to also show how arrest rates have risen steadily for 10  years, despite pot usage and its availability being at an all-time high.
 
“To the extent that the goal of these hundreds of thousands of arrests has been to curb the availability or consumption of marijuana, they have failed,” the ACLU reported, adding continued enforcement “served as a vehicle for police to target communities of color.”
 
Between 2001 and 2010, the overall number of marijuana arrests has risen steadily, now accounting for 52 percent of all drug-related arrests in the United States, but the study’s authors conclude that increase has been linked almost solely to an increase in the arrest rate of blacks.
 
The minority community is nearly four times more likely to be arrested for possession than whites, according to the report. While arrests for whites have remained fairly constant at around 192 arrests per 100,000  Americans, arrests for blacks have risen from 537 to 716.
 
The disparity exists regardless of household income but is more prevalent in middle-class and wealthier communities, the report found.  But the rate of usage remained roughly equal between blacks and whites, said the report.
 
New York and Washington, D.C., share the top two arrest rates per capita, with 846 and 535 arrests respectively per 100,000 residents.
 
The ACLU said police made 889,133 pot-related arrests in 2010, or one every 33 seconds. The states foot approximately $3.6 billion of the costs divided between the cost of policing, adjudication  and incarceration of  those convicted.

Going to the store high is fun, straight up! We prefer to get stoned before a trip to the local grocery store. Not only because it makes all the food look 100% amazing, but it’s fun as hell for stoners to wander around the local Vons blazed with a shopping cart full of munchies. It makes a daily tasks interesting, exciting and delicious. So head to the store, but not before getting ripped!

Nevada Assembly approves medical marijuana dispensaries

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Tue, June, 4th 2013 by THCFinder
CARSON CITY, Nev. -- Nevada lawmakers want to give medical marijuana users a legal way to obtain the drug 13 years after voters legalized medicinal pot in the state constitution.
 
The Assembly voted 28-14 Monday to pass a bill establishing marijuana dispensaries. The measure needs final approval from the Senate before heading to Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval, who has said he will consider the proposal.
 
The bill, SB374, establishes a framework to make pot available to medical marijuana card holders, and sets up fees and requirements for growers, processors and dispensaries of marijuana.
 
Nevada voters legalized medical marijuana in 2000 and a year later were able to obtain medical marijuana cards. But there has been no legal way for patients to acquire medicinal marijuana unless they grow it themselves.
