Kansas Supreme Court Justice Compares Drug Charges to Sex Crimes

Category: News | Posted on Sun, September, 20th 2015 by THCFinder

The Kansas Supreme Court heard arguments this week between state and local officials as to whether or not the city of Wichita should be allowed to implement an ordinance passed in 2014 that decriminalizes marijuana possession.

In April of last year, 54 percent of the voting population in the state’s largest municipality approved a ballot measure that took the heat off first time pot offenders by making minor possession a civil infraction rather than a criminal offense. Essentially, the majority of Wichita agreed that a $50 fine was a sufficient enough punishment for anyone caught holding a small bag of weed and that it was no longer necessary to put these people in jail.

However, the passing of this ordinance did not set well with Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt, who argued that Wichita could not move forward with the ordinance because it directly conflicts with state and federal law.

It is this battle between the city’s right to approve rules conducive to maintaining civil society and a state hammer swinging in disapproval that has brought the state’s highest court in to mediate this issue to a decision.

Welcome to the marijuana election, where Colorado is the star

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

The 2016 campaign is spawning a new axiom in presidential politics: You can't spell POTUS without pot.

For the first time, marijuana is becoming a significant policy issue for Republican and Democratic candidates — thanks in part to softening public attitudes toward the drug and Colorado's prominent place on the political map.

"(Marijuana) is a topic that 2016 presidential candidates will not be able to avoid or dismiss with a pithy talking point," said John Hudak, a fellow at the Brookings Institution, a think tank whose research has focused on the legalization push. "It is one that candidates will have to think about and engage."

In the Republican primary, the candidates are making marijuana an issue on their own. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said he would enforce federal laws to crack down on pot use in states such as Colorado. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul became the first major candidate to attend a fundraiser with the weed industry in his recent Denver visit.

But pot politics hit prime time with an extended exchange in last week's GOP debate on CNN, which drew an audience of 23 million.

Tactics And Tricks That Cops Use To Bust You For Marijuana

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

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.
