Horizon Air trying to fire pilot who used marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Wed, April, 24th 2013 by THCFinder
SEATTLE — Horizon Air wants a judge to stop a pilot who was fired for using marijuana from returning to the cockpit, a news website said.
 
The Seattle-based airline fired pilot Brian Milam after he failed a random drug test in November 2011 and he acknowledged smoking to cope with back pain and other issues, seattlepi.com reported Monday.
 
The firing was challenged by the Airline Professionals Association and an arbitrator ruled in the union's favor, saying Horizon failed to fully review Milam's record before firing him.
 
Horizon filed a lawsuit last week in federal court, asking the judge to throw out the arbitrator's ruling.
 
"Horizon is not willing to place an impaired pilot back in the cockpit," said Mark Hutcheson, an attorney representing Horizon. "Doing so would violate federal law and contravene a well-settled public policy prohibiting a pilot from flying while using drugs."
 
Milam was the first Horizon pilot to fail a drug test since the airline began testing in 1989, the lawyer said.
 
The union was displeased the case has gone to court.

Federal judge sentences Grand Blanc man to 20 years for funding marijuana operation

Category: News | Posted on Wed, April, 24th 2013 by THCFinder
BAY CITY, MI — A Grand Blanc man has a 20-year stay in federal prison on the horizon for funding a substantial marijuana operation.
 
U.S. District Judge Thomas L. Ludington on Monday, April 22, imposed the two-decade sentence on Salah Dado, 34. Dado's trial at the federal courthouse in Bay City ended in May with a jury convicting him of single counts of conspiring to manufacture, possess with intent to distribute and to distribute 1,000 or more marijuana plants or 1,000 kilograms or more of marijuana and aiding and abetting others in the manufacture of 1,000 or more marijuana plants.
 
Prosecutors argued in the trial that thousands of marijuana plants were grown and processed in rural Roscommon County with Dado having provided the funding. The pot was distributed throughout the eastern half of Michigan's Lower Peninsula by Dado and others, prosecutors maintained.
 
Authorities discovered the operation in the fall of 2009, with more than 1,400 plants ye to be harvested and processed.
 
Dado's sentence was based on the nature of his offense and his criminal background, which includes a prior felony drug conviction.

DEA raids San Diegos One on One Patients Association

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Wed, April, 24th 2013 by THCFinder
One on One Patients Association at 923 6th Ave. in San Diego is being raided this morning by the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration, according to owner Kenneth Cole. Local media confirms it.
 
No word yet on arrests, but Cole said the D.E.A. is seizing One on One cash, marijuana, security cameras and other equipment.
 
In 1996 and 2003, California voters and the state legislature legalized marijuana for qualified patients, caregivers and their associations, but San Diego law enforcement follow the federal government’s line: marijuana is not medicine and is illegal.
 
Local police working with the D.E.A. have spent the last 17 months shutting down every medical marijuana access point in town. They’ve also been raiding small private collectives. Open for two years, One on One was the last permitted dispensary publicly operating in the city of San Diego.

Maybe 50 Pounds' Of Marijuana Found In Joe's Crab Shack Dumpster

Category: Odd | Posted on Tue, April, 23rd 2013 by THCFinder
More possible fallout from this weekend's 4/20 festivities: An employee at the faux-shabby Joe's Crab Shack found three garbage bags filled with marijuana in a dumpster behind the seafood chain's Fisherman's Wharf location.
 
According to SFPD, the bags contained "maybe 50 pounds" of unwanted kind bud. The investigation is still underway, so police don't have any additional information on where the weed might have come from or if it could possibly have any connection to the nationwide seafood chain.
 
A quick search of the location's Yelp page produced 24 reviews claiming the service was "a bit slow," "definitely super slow" and "so slow it almost move backward in time." But all that is probably unrelated to the huge stash found in the dumpster.
