Marijuana Dispensaries raided by DEA in San Bernardino

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Thu, February, 7th 2013 by THCFinder

Another tragic blow to the Medical Marijuana Community and it's patients who need their Medical Marijuana to get by day to day.

SAN BERNARDINO - Federal drug agents, local police, city attorney's, investigators and code enforcement officers fanned out across the city Wednesday, raiding a chain of medical marijuana dispensaries and a private residence, police said.
 
The Drug Enforcement Administration served warrants at Kush Concepts East at 1996 Del Rosa Ave., south of Highland Avenue, Kush Concepts West at 1600 N. Arrowhead Ave., at 16th Street, and Kush Concepts North at 305 W. 40th St. Authorities also served a search warrant at a private residence at 3577 Manzanita Drive, according to the search warrant affidavit.
 
"The search warrants were all served simultaneously without incident," said a DEA spokeswoman, Special Agent Sarah E. Pullen. "Once the evidence is processed the U.S. Attorney's Office will make the final decision if any criminal charges will be filed against Kush Concepts."
 
Assistant City Attorney Jolena Grider said these businesses are attracting criminal elements that loiter and panhandle, making people uncomfortable.
 
"The crime rate has risen within a one-mile radius of these businesses," she said. "I think everyone is waiting on the (state) Supreme Court ruling that would decide how much further we can go in these cases."
 
Even though California voters voted to legalize the sale of medical marijuana, medical marijuana businesses were banned in the city in April 2011, according to a letter issued by City Attorney James F. Penman.

Purple GSC - Hybrid

If you live in the Bay Area, you've likely heard of Girl Scout Cookies. Whether it's from one of the songs by the famous San Francisco rapper, Berner or actually trying it yourself, Girl Scout Cookies is a can't-miss strain that will medicate you beyond your wildest dreams. A potent mix of an OG Kush x Durban Poison x Cherry Kush mother backcrossed with a prime-looking OG Kush father created possibly one of the best Northern California strains of all time. For those of you who are into the Bay Area rap scene, you've likely already smoked some of this off-the-charts weed after hearing some of the songs by San Francisco rapper and collective owner, Berner.

Marijuana task force backs DUI bill in legislature

Category: News | Posted on Wed, February, 6th 2013 by THCFinder
DENVER – The marijuana legalization task force endorsed a bill Tuesday establishing a legal limit for driving stoned and recommended juveniles caught possessing pot be given a warning before criminal charges are filed.
 
But agreement couldn’t be reached on other issues, such as the fundamental structure of the marijuana industry when it comes to who is able to grow, distribute and sell the drug.
 
Tuesday was the fourth meeting of the 24 member task force established by Gov. John Hickenlooper in December. The group is working on recommendations that will likely guide an omnibus bill — a conglomeration of regulations — to be considered by lawmakers this session.
 
The issue of driving under the influence of marijuana was considered separately from other recommendations, and the members voted to endorse a proposed bill that is about to start working its way through the General Assembly.
 
House Bill 114, by House Republican Leader Mark Waller and Democrat Rep. Rhonda Fields, would set the legal limit for driving at 5 nanograms of delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, in their blood.
 
The proposal mirrors the drunken driving limit of .08 blood alcohol content, except in one important way. Violators would be able to argue in court that they — because of their size or tolerance or other factors — are not in fact intoxicated or impaired at the 5 nanograms of THC level.
 
Greenwood Village Police Chief John Jackson was among those opposed to the legislation in Tuesday’s task force meeting.
 
Jackson said he favored a zero tolerance policy, one that would mirror the current drunk driving laws.
 
Fatal Crash Numbers
 
Between 2006 and 2011, 240 people were killed in Colorado in crashes where the driver tested positive for THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. The number of fatalities with drivers under the influence of marijuana has increased over the years, while state-wide fatal crashes have decreased.  
 
Year      Fatal Crashes THC      Total fatal crashes state      percent THC
2006      21                           721                                  2.9%
2007      23                           789                                  2.9%
2008      31                           712                                  4.4%
2009      37                           653                                  5.7%
2010      42                           600                                  7%
2011      52                           587                                  8.9%

Mexicos president opposes legalizing marijuana, calls it a gateway drug

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, February, 6th 2013 by THCFinder
More than 12,000 people were murdered last year in the Mexican drug war, The Washington Post’s Nick Miroff reported, a figure that’s been largely unchanged over the past three years. Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has vowed to cut down on the violence, and he recently talked with the German news magazine Der Spiegel about his priorities.
 
SPIEGEL: Some U.S. states have relaxed the prohibition of marijuana. Doesn’t that deprive the drug war of its credibility?
 
Peña Nieto: It should at least encourage a debate. I’m opposed to legalizing marijuana because it acts as a gateway drug.
 
[What it means: Marijuana may or may not be a gateway drug. Legalization may or may not bankrupt the cartels. But here Peña Nieto is reinforcing earlier statements by his administration that legalization in the United States may undermine efforts to stop the flow of marijuana across the border.
 
Shortly after Colorado and Washington voted to legalize the drug, Peña Nieto’s top adviser, Luis Videgaray, told a radio station in Mexico: “Obviously, we can’t handle a product that is illegal in Mexico, trying to stop its transfer to the United States, when in the United States ... it now has a different status,”.

These buds look like snow-covered mountains with dancing flames of wildfire sparsely strewn about the foliage.
