Man gets life in prison for trafficking marijuana

prison-for-mmjA Gordon man received life in prison after he pleaded guilty to trafficking $300,000 worth of marijuana in Houston County.
District Attorney Doug Valeska said 41-year-old Steven Craig Hooven pleaded guilty to a felony trafficking marijuana charge in front of Circuit Court Judge Brad Mendheim.
Valeska said Hooven received an enhanced sentence, of life in prison, because of three prior felony convictions out of Tennessee.
Houston County Sheriff’s investigators arrested Hooven on Aug. 16, 2012, on the marijuana trafficking charge.
The charge stemmed from a patrol deputy making a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by Hooven for speeding on State Line Road near Cottonwood and US 231 South.
The traffic stop led investigators with the Houston County Sheriff’s narcotics unit to get a search warrant for Hooven’s home where they discovered a large indoor marijuana growing operation.

Drunk Drivers Are 30 Times More Likely To Get In An Accident Than Cannabis Consumers

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
drunk-vs-stonedA new study published online by the journal Accident Analysis & Prevention has concluded what cannabis advocates have known for years; cannabis is the least dangerous “drug” to consume before driving; alcohol is the worst. In fact, the study found that those with a blood alcohol level of 0.12% were over 30 times more likely to get into a serious accident than someone who’s consumed any amount of cannabis.
Researchers conclude that; “The least risky drugs were cannabis and benzodiazepines and Z-drugs.”
For the study, researchers collected case samples from “severely injured drivers of passenger cars or vans in selected hospitals in various regions of the countries [Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Lithuania and the Netherlands]. Control samples (N = 15,832) were sampled in a uniform sampling scheme stratified according to country, time, road type and season. Relative risks were approximated by odds ratios and calculated by logistic regression. The estimates were adjusted for age, gender and country.”
This research helps to validate a number of past studies which have found that cannabis doesn’t decrease driver safety, and may in fact increase driving performance for certain people.
The study was conducted by researchers at the University of Copenhagen’s Department of Forensic Medicine, and the Technical University of Denmark’s Department of Transport.

Backers of medical marijuana protest state rule to control home growing of pot

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, August, 2nd 2013 by THCFinder
BOSTON — Advocates of medical marijuana protested in downtown Boston on Thursday, saying that a tough state regulation could hurt access for patients who are allowed to grow their own pot.
Under regulations approved by the state Department of Public Health, a patient with a hardship permit to cultivate marijuana can designate only a single caregiver to grow the drug on behalf of the patient.
Brett Cogill, publisher of Greenleaf magazine in Cohasset, said it would be more economical for patients to grow marijuana than to purchase it from a dispensary. He said a caregiver should be allowed to grow for 15 to 20 patients.
"One patient is kind of ridiculous," said Cogill, 43, who was among about a dozen protesters who held signs and sometimes chanted on Washington Street outside the offices of the state Department of Public Health.
The public health department approved the regulation to curb illegal distribution of medical marijuana.
