New Orleans City Council Doesn’t Want People Arrested For Personal Marijuana Possession

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

marijuana arrest prison drug drugsArresting someone for marijuana is inhumane, can ruin the person’s life in the blink of an eye, and costs the arresting agency a ton of money. I’m not sure how much a marijuana arrest costs in all municipalities, but many of the figures I’ve seen put a marijuana arrest for simple possession at between $1,500 and $2,000. Compare that to issuing a citation, which can cost as low as $20 from some statistics I’ve seen. More and more local governments are reforming their marijuana laws in such a way that minimizes the amount of people being arrested for simple marijuana possession.

The New Orleans City Council became the most recent local government to make such a move. The New Orleans City Council voted yesterday to reform it’s city marijuana law regarding personal possession. Per NOLA:

New Orleans police will have even more leeway to issue citations for simple marijuana possession after the City Council voted 7-0 Thursday (March 17) to enact new standards aimed at reducing the number of arrests for low-level drug crime.

Local law already allowed NOPD officers to write a ticket for first-offense possession, and they still have the option to use the stricter state law that calls for arrests. Council members Susan Guidry and Jason Williams backed the ordinance that allows police to issue summonses for third and subsequent simple possession charges.

“Our hope with this is that fewer people will be brought to jail and fewer people will have their lives disrupted with this charge,” Guidry said.

New Zealand Stoners Are Facing a Pot Shortage

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

Along with the U.S., New Zealand regularly appears at the top of various global rankings of cannabis consumption. But our stoner friends down under are dealing with an unfortunate situation: There's a dire shortage of marijuana.

Earlier this month, police recovered 9,000 plants in an annual aerial operation, which affected both outdoor and indoor grows. Reporting for the Spinoff, one local writer described the situation as "catastrophic.”

"The bust is another blow for a nation already in drought," the story reads. "Marijuana, easily New Zealand’s most popular illegal substance, is almost unobtainable in any meaningful amount right now. Blame it on the police, the gangs, the weather or just the grow cycle of your average cannabis harvest; no matter which way you slice it, it’s dry out there."
