Children Taken From Medical Marijuana-Prescribed Parents in California
Category: News | Posted on Wed, August, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
A family from southern California is suing the City of Coronado after their children were taken away for nearly a year because the father admitted to legally smoking medical marijuana.
According to legal filings obtained this week by the Courthouse News Service, Michael Lewis and Lauren Taylor have filed a lawsuit against Coronado, CA, San Diego County and nine local police officers for what they say is a violation of civil rights that started with a routine visit from law enforcement in August 2011.
Attorneys for the family say Lewis was recommended medical marijuana by his physician in order to counter the debilitating migraines he started suffering from after being exposed to chemicals during the Gulf War, but investigators who stopped by their Coronado home two summers ago disregarded the prescription.
The lawsuit alleges that police officers were called to investigate the Lewis residence after being told that the family was running an illegal day care center on the same site where marijuana was being regularly smoked. Following a visit during August 2011, police wrote that they found pot, but identified no other hazards — or a day care facility, for that matter. Three days later, however, agents with the United States Department of Health and Human Services returned to the residence and seized the couple’s two children, ages four and two.
According to the lawsuit, the children were removed from their parents’ care and then deposited at a San Diego County emergency shelter for allegedly abused and neglected minors.

Purple Zombie Strain review & Pics
Category: Nugs | Posted on Tue, August, 13th 2013 by THCFinder
Strain Name: Purple Zombie
Device Used: Mobius Reti Perc Bubbler
Looks: I was provided with a nice sized sample marijuana nugget that was dense and tight, with a deep dark purple hue giving a black color appearance with noticeable orange/red "hair" frosted over with trichomes.
Smell: Very prune and raison like ... fruity and earthy.
Taste: Similar to its smell, but more earthy with a hash like aftertaste with a hint of plumb and grape.
Buzz Type: Full Body. Relaxing and calming.
Buzz Length: Average to Above Average (1 to 1.5 hours)
* Review is "First Impression" as product provided was a sample and used exclusively for one day.
I enjoy "Purple" strains and its been a while since I had one so, I was glad some Purple Zombie made it in my hands even if only a sample marijuana nugget.
This strain smoked very smooth. I was able to take in a whole bowl without one cough. The buzz is first felt in the head, but before you know it, the "Zombie" engulfs you into a full body high which is very relaxing and calming. I found this strain to be very nice for pain as I immediately enjoyed this sample after one of my morning gym workouts. I was provided with excellent pain relief.
The full body high is relaxing and relieves stress. This strain did make me sink in my chair. I was not couch locked, but was a bit slow while doing my work as I mostly wanted to sit back and enjoy the nice cerebral pressure and full body tingle sensation I was experiencing.
Enjoyed for a morning only, I was able to get three nice bubbler bowls from the sample marijuana nugget provided.
I would definitely grab Purple Zombie if available!
Cheers (& Cough),

Alaska, Rhode Island Will Legalize Marijuana Next
Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, August, 13th 2013 by THCFinder
As support for marijuana legalization continues to grow, Rob Kampia, the executive director of the Marijuana Policy Project, believes that momentum will drive two more states to follow Colorado and Washington in legalizing recreational weed in 2014.
In a recent interview with Reason, Kampia made several legal pot predictions.
"I think the next state to legalize will be Alaska, through a ballot initiative that we're running in August of 2014," Kampia said to Reason. "Through state legislatures, I think the first state is going to be Rhode Island."
Kampia went on to predict that many other states will also be voting on marijuana legalization on the same day in 2016, including: California, Nevada, Arizona, Maine and possibly Massachusetts.
Alaska and Rhode Island both appear to be poised for legalization. In Alaska, Public Policy Polling recently surveyed voters and found that 54 percent are currently in favor of legal weed.
Rhode Island decriminalized less than an ounce of marijuana back in April and a separate bill rolled out this year would legalize marijuana for recreational use. A survey last year conducted for the Marijuana Policy Project by Public Policy Polling found that 52 percent of Rhode Islanders would support treating weed no differently than alcohol.
Kampia's final, and perhaps boldest, prediction was that federal marijuana law would finally change before the end of the decade. "My prediction, changing federal law will be 2019," Kampia said. "But we're going to have to deal with a lot of difficult states after 2019, like Mississippi and Alabama."
