Colorado Regulators Ditch 'Absurd' Rule Treating Marijuana Publications Like Porn
Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
Marijuana-themed publications won't be treated like pornography in Colorado, state regulators announced Thursday in the face of lawsuits.
The rule would have forced stores to keep publications with a "primary focus" on pot away from shoppers under the age of 21, and was mandated by a package of legislature-approved marijuana regulations signed into law by Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper on May 28.
Colorado's State Licensing Authority said the rule was unconstitutional and would be ignored. An "emergency rule" issued by the licensing authority said "such a requirement would violate the United States Constitution" and Colorado law.
The decision was made with input from the state attorney general's office. "We support the laudable goal of keeping retail marijuana out of the hands of those under 21, but that has to be consistent with the Constitution," a spokesperson for the state attorney general told The Denver Post.

Life Sentence For Marijuana
Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, June, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
Rich Paul made headlines this week when he announced he would appeal his 81-year sentence for selling marijuana.
But as harsh as Paul's sentence might sound, there are those who have it even worse. LifeForPot.org has compiled a list of prisoners who were sentenced to life behind bars for marijuana crimes.
The first nine individuals on Beth Curtis' site are over the age of 62. They include John Knock who has been behind bars since 1996. According to Curtis' site, Knock was convicted of a first-time pot offense in a Florida sting operation.
Then there's Larry Duke, a decorated Vietnam veteran who's serving life without parole for marijuana-only crimes, according to Life For Pot.
"These are lifetime sentences for what, in other countries, they wouldn't in a moment consider incarcerating anybody for," Allen St. Pierre, Executive Director for the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, told The Huffington Post. "Virtually nobody in Europe goes to jail for cannabis offenses. If they do, they have to be caught in large commercial operations, and repeat offenders."
Salon previously compiled a list of offenders given long sentences for pot crimes such as Christopher Williams, who faces 82 to 85 years behind bars for providing medical marijuana and Patricia Spottedcrow, a mother of four who's serving a 12-year sentence for selling $31 worth of marijuana.
Nationwide, NORML estimates there are around 100,000 people incarcerated for pot-only offenses. That's a relatively small percentage of the roughly 2.4 million Americans currently behind bars.
