drug inspection checkpoint k-9If you have consumed marijuana long enough, chances are you have had run-ins with law enforcement. Hopefully those interactions were favorable, and if not, hopefully you have been able to rebuild your life. Consuming marijuana is not harmful, but getting caught consuming marijuana could ruin your life. That’s why it’s so important to know what tactics and tricks cops use to try to bust you for marijuana, and how to deal with them. I read an article on Raw Story recently that discussed the four things cops do to bust you when you’re driving, and I had some to add on. If you have anything that you would like to add, please do in the comments section so that others can learn from your knowledge and experience.

Fishing For Felonies

I went to a college that has a large criminal justice program. There used to be a police academy at the college I attended, but it has since been relocated. As such, I talked to a lot of police officers in college that were instructors, and to even more criminal justice majors that were studying to become officers. I was a public policy major with a legal studies minor, so some of our credit requirements overlapped. There was a term that one of the professors said in class one day that has always stuck with me – ‘fishing for felonies.’

We have probably all seen this in action before. Cops are driving around looking for any reason to pull someone over. The most common thing is that someone has a light out, but I was once pulled over because the officer said my light was ‘dim’ which was a very subjective thing. I am happy to say that I survived that interaction because I didn’t have any marijuana on me at the time, but I checked my light as the officer pulled away and it was the same brightness it had always been since the day I bought the vehicle. Fishing for felonies is a tactic that virtually every officer uses, especially in poorer neighborhoods and at night time. Before you drive make sure all of your stuff is in working order, and if you get pulled over for a ‘dim’ light, respectfully explain to the officer that you check your vehicle often, and that you will definitely take a look when you get to your destination.

Department of Justice Threatens to Take Away Funds From States That Reform Asset Forfeiture Laws

Category: News | Posted on Sat, September, 19th 2015 by THCFinder

While former Attorney General Eric Holder said at the beginning of 2015 that the Department of Justice (DOJ) had taken measures to prevent state and local police departments from seizing money, cars and other personal property without first charging a drug suspect with criminal activity, newly released documents show this move was nothing more than lip service to temporarily appease the opposing forces of unchecked police authority.

Indeed, drug reform activists rejoiced earlier this year when Holder released a statement suggesting that, “effective immediately, the Justice Department is taking an important step to prohibit federal agency adoptions of state and local seizures, except for public safety reasons.” Unfortunately, the then-leader of the DOJ failed to admit that the U.S. government would soon twist the arms of local lawmakers and police agencies to become opposing forces for the reform of state asset forfeiture laws or run the risk of losing their federal funding. 

A series of documents obtained by the Institute for Justice reveals that the DOJ has teamed up with the Treasury Department to bribe state law enforcement groups to oppose any effort to change the way the civil asset forfeiture laws operate in their state. If they fail to comply, and the state does pass reforms to this system, the federal government indicates that it will strip away the federal funding the state has been receiving through the Equitable Sharing Program.

Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt Explains How Cannabis Helps Him

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Fri, September, 18th 2015 by THCFinder

The Marijuana Majority

Here is another example of a successful individual who is not afraid of sharing how cannabis helps him – actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt. You may know Joseph Gordon-Levitt from several movies such as The Dark Knight Rises, to Inception, and also his upcoming movie, The Walk.

So why is Joseph Gordon-Levitt sharing how cannabis helps him? He actually cares about the demonizing stigma that cannabis has carried for decades and how it is continued to be portrayed negatively throughout society. He personally cannot understand why there is such a negative stigma surrounding the plant – just like all of us. 

In an interview with PlayBoy magazine, he explained, “Even though the tide is turning, I think marijuana is overly demonized in our culture. I do know people who let it get out of control and let it play a part in their lives that’s not beneficial. There’s definitely an addictive quality, but it’s psychological. It’s not physically addictive in the way cigarettes or alcohol are physically addictive.”
