Court backs Calif. marijuana dispensaries

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Thu, October, 25th 2012 by THCFinder
SAN DIEGO, Oct. 25 (UPI) -- A California judicial panel sided with medical marijuana growers, ruling pot collectives can provide the drug to members, even if the members didn't grow it.
 
The San Diego district attorney and California Attorney General Kamala Harris argued the provision in the state's medicinal marijuana law permits non-profit collectives, but they were intended to be small groups of people who grew the plants together, not a massive enterprise with thousands of patients serving as a mass dispensary, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Wednesday.
 
But a three-judge appellate panel in San Diego said the state's law protects non-profit pot collectives regardless of size.
 
Prosecutors were said to be eyeing Harborside Health Center, an Oakland non-profit marijuana collective with 108,000 patients, making it the largest medicinal marijuana provider in the country.

Feds move against Southern California medical marijuana stores

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Thu, October, 25th 2012 by THCFinder

Another sad day for Medical Marijuana patients in Southern California.

SANTA ANA, Calif.—Federal authorities have arrested a dozen people associated with a chain of nine marijuana stores that operated in Orange and Los Angeles counties.

The U.S. attorney's office says the 12 taken into custody Thursday are among 14 people named in a drug-trafficking indictment returned by a federal grand jury last week.
 
Most of the stores had been targets of search warrants executed in 2010 and 2011, and most are now closed.
 
Prosecutors say the stores generated tens of millions of dollars in income. The indictment alleges that none of the income was reported to federal tax authorities and the owner ordered a bookkeeper to destroy all records about the income.
 
U.S. attorneys in California are enforcing federal law that doesn't recognize a state initiative that legalized pot for medicinal use.

Medical Marijuana Is on Your Ballot

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, October, 25th 2012 by THCFinder
In a little over a week, we the voters will elect representatives who will make momentous, sometimes life-or-death decisions on our behalf. As a patient and advocate of medical marijuana, I am motivated this election by strong, bipartisan support for this medicine -- up to 80 percent in recent polls. If you are part of the majority of Americans who support cannabis access for medical purposes, you don't need to be in the three states with an initiative on the ballot to weigh in. My organization, Americans for Safe Access, has created a tool that allows you to make your vote for Congress a vote for medical marijuana, by grading members of Congress on their record on this issue: VoteMedicalMarijuana.org.
 
Based on their record since 1997, VoteMedicalMarijuana.org grades Members of Congress up for reelection on a pass/fail basis. Those who have generally voted for access to medical cannabis pass, and those who generally vote against it fail. For example, the 72 percent of Democrats and 29 percent of Republicans who voted this May in favor of de-funding Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) raids in medical cannabis states pass, and those who voted against it, fail. VoteMedicalMarijuana.org also identifies key champions of medical marijuana with the "honor roll" distinction, reserved for co-sponsors of important legislation that protects state medical marijuana laws.
 
Our Congressional Representatives are our voice in Washington. By voting for representatives who favor access, you are shaping public policy. In just the last two years, medical marijuana supporters have been key to statewide races, defeating Steve Cooley in his race for Attorney General in California, and electing Ellen Rosenblum as Attorney General of Oregon. Since Congress holds the key to granting medical cannabis access nationwide, supporters need to know whether or not their representative is on their side.
 
You may have read about the federal lawsuit ASA v DEA that was recently heard by the Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C. We are excited and optimistic that the courts will recognize the medical value of marijuana and force the government to properly reclassify it. Once this is achieved, Congress can get to work on developing the comprehensive public health policy that every patient deserves. It is Congress that funds the aggressive federal enforcement campaigns against state law-abiding medical cannabis facilities. And it is Congress that has the power to let patients use a currently prohibited "medical marijuana" defense in federal criminal trials. Your vote for your Congressperson -- and every American outside of my hometown of D.C. has one -- can be a vote for a sensible medical marijuana policy.
 
If you care about medical cannabis access, please visit VoteMedicaMarijuana.org before you cast your vote. This information is based on the Congressional record, but it is not comprehensive. If you don't see your Congressional, State Legislature or City Council race on this list, we invite you to ask the candidates yourself, and share their responses with us.
 
Voters in Arkansas, Massachusetts and Montana have the opportunity to vote for state medical marijuana laws, but voters in every state can and should weigh in on medical marijuana policy. Don't let your vote be ignored, and Vote Medical Marijuana on November 6th!
