Marijuana bars: Authorities cracking down on Washington bar owner allowing pot use
Category: News | Posted on Sat, April, 20th 2013 by THCFinder
Jeff Call knew he was pushing the envelope when he started letting people use marijuana at his rum-and-pizza joint in Tacoma.
But he didn't quite know the extent of what he was in for: the governor's office demanding state regulators do something about it, local authorities revoking his business license, and his insurance company dropping his liability policy — developments that threaten to sink his 3-year-old establishment even as he vows to fight them.
"The screws are coming down from all over," says Call, owner of Stonegate Pizza. "But we're open. Everything is still the same."
Washington and Colorado last fall became the first states to legalize marijuana for adults over 21. Both ban the public use of marijuana — which typically would include bars and restaurants — and most bars are steering clear of allowing pot use at least until officials come up with rules for the new weed industry.

Mixed martial arts referee Josh Rosenthal, after pleading guilty to felony charges of conspiracy to manufacture and distribute marijuana, awaits sentencing in U.S. District Court in Northern California on May 17.
The charges stem from a raid by federal agents on a warehouse owned by Rosenthal and his associate, Jeff Weller. The two are accused of operating a large-scale marijuana production and distribution facility in Oakland, Calif., according to an initial report by MMAJunkie.com.
The facility house more than 1,000 marijuana plants with an estimated street value of more then $6 million.
The government is recommending 37 months in jail, fines and five years of probation, during which he would be subject to random searches, according to an agreement obtained by MMAJunkie.com.
Without an agreement, Rosenthal faced the possibility of 10 years to life in prison, a $10 million fine and a minimum of five years on probation.

Uses of medical marijuana soon may include PTSD

The Senate passed a bill Thursday that would allow people with post-traumatic stress disorder to get medical marijuana cards, but not all lawmakers were sold on the idea.
Senate Bill 281, which passed on a 19-11 vote, is now headed to the House.
The issue divided many of the Senate Republicans, some of whom weren’t convinced that medical marijuana would effectively treat the anxiety disorder.
While there has been anecdotal evidence about its beneficial effects on post-traumatic stress disorder, there isn’t a consensus about the drug in the medical community.
“You know you could sit down with a bottle of Jack Daniels and listen to Charlie Daniels and probably get the same effect,” said Sen. Alan Olsen, R-Canby, a former narcotics investigator.
Sen. Jeff Kruse, R-Roseburg, said he voted against the bill because he thinks that marijuana should be treated like any other medicine.
