UFC Punishes Marijuana, Not Violent Threats Against Women
Category: News | Posted on Sat, May, 18th 2013 by THCFinder
Following up on Johnny Green’s post on the UFC not punishing fighters for testosterone while vacating wins and seizing prize money over marijuana metabolites, we have some updates on the story.
It seems that to add insult to injury, UFC President Dana White is taking the $65,000 “Submission of the Night” bonus forfeited by Pat Healy and awarding it to the only other fighter that night to win by submission, Bryan Caraway. We can’t be too harsh on someone taking a free sixty-five grand after being pummeled, even if he’s essentially being rewarded for exhibiting the second-best performance, but we can be harsh if he trash-talks marijuana when he couldn’t out-perform someone using it, as Caraway did to MMA Junkie:
All I’ve got to say is that’s some expensive weed. I like Healy a lot. I came up through the fighting ranks with him. We used to train together at Team Quest. I love the guy. But I have absolutely zero remorse or guilt.
I hate weed. I cannot stand it. I’ve never tried it. I’ve never smoked a drug in my life. So I have absolutely zero tolerance for people that do it. I don’t care if it’s legal in some places or not. I think it’s absolutely ridiculous. Whether it’s legal in real life or not, they tell you to follow the rules. You need to follow the rules.

Illinois Senate approves bill to legalize medical marijuana
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, May, 18th 2013 by THCFinder
Illinois has come within a signature of becoming the 19th state to allow marijuana use for medical purposes.
On Friday, the state Senate voted 35-21 to approve a medical marijuana measure, which now will head for Gov. Pat Quinn’s desk. The governor has not said whether he will sign it.
Democratic Sen. Bill Haine, one of the bill’s sponsors, told the Los Angeles Times that House Bill 1 has a very narrow scope and was crafted with law enforcement officials at the table to avoid the mistakes and pitfalls of medical marijuana programs in other states.
Eighteen states and Washington, D.C., have decriminalized marijuana use for medicinal purposes. California did so in 1996, when the state’s voters approved Proposition 215.
If it becomes law, the Illinois bill will prohibit patients from growing their own pot; instead, plants will be raised at “grow centers” overseen by authorities and the state Department of Agriculture.
Only doctors that have established relationships with patients will be able to dispense the drug to help with pain or side effects associated with treating serious illnesses, such as AIDS or cancer.
“It can’t be consumed in public. It can’t be displayed in public,” Haine said.
The bill would allow medical marijuana use for just four years, essentially creating a pilot program on the drug's use. If it’s not renewed by the state’s General Assembly, the medical pot effort will die.

Police close Palm Springs marijuana dispensaries
Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Sat, May, 18th 2013 by THCFinder
PALM SPRINGS — Two medical marijuana dispensaries ordered by the court to close were visited Friday by Palm Springs police to ensure they were following orders.
The C.C.O.C. at 650 S. Oleander Road and THC (The Holistic Collective) at 2235 N. Palm Canyon Drive were issued notices on Wednesday that ordered them to close within 24-hours to avoid police enforcement.
Police showed up on Friday to make sure both places, neither of which has a city-approved permit to operate, were closed and had the locks on their doors changed to ensure the operators would not be able to reopen the dispensaries.
“We didn’t seize any property. We didn’t search,” said police Lt. Walter Combs.
“We went in and enforced that abatement order. They had a court order to leave,” he said.
There were no arrests, Combs added.
