People On Probation/Parole Can Use Medical Marijuana In Colorado

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 13th 2015 by THCFinder

colorado probation parole medical marijuanaPeople that are on probation or parole should still be allowed to use legal medicine. Just because someone is in the criminal justice system doesn’t mean that they don’t suffer from various conditions or ailments. Marijuana is a proven form of medicine, and if someone qualifies for a medical marijuana program to use it, they should be allowed to do so. To prevent someone from using medical marijuana, while on probation or parole or otherwise, is non-compassionate. Colorado’s Legislature and Governor agree, which is why they recently passed House Bill 1267. Per The Joint Blog:

Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper has signed House Bill 1267 into law, allowing those on probation or parole to use medical cannabis.

Although medical cannabis has been legal in Colorado since voters approvedAmendment 20 in 2000, the use of the medicine while on probation or parole has remained prohibited. House Bill 1267, which takes effect immediately, changes that.

This is a common sense move by the State of Colorado. Colorado joins Arizona and Rhode Island in allowing those that are on probation or parole to use medical marijuana. This will help countless numbers of people in Colorado, who might otherwise turn to much more harmful substances in an attempt to mask their conditions. I really hope more states follow suit, including my home state, Oregon.

700 Pot Plants Found Growing Near Busy Berlin Train Station

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 13th 2015 by THCFinder

One might not think of Berlin, with its steel gray skies and long winters, as an ideal outdoor gardening town. But, when it came to growing pot, some Berliners seemed to prefer the open-air approach.

The discovery of 700 pot plants growing in and around Görlitzer Park, amidst the mini-golf course and petting zoos, is just one event in the ongoing struggle between authorities who want to control consumption and sale; and the rest of the pot-tolerant city that has either been toking up for years.

The pot plantation was in plain view to the thousands of people who daily pass through the hip Kreuzberg district, one of Berlin’s busiest intersections and a major subway station.

Berlin police said they were called to the Kreuzberg subway station by a street cleaner who’d reported seeing “numerous small plants that seemed suspicious to him,” according to an Associated Press report.

Police, who said the plants were about 15 inches tall, yanked them up and disposed of them.

Known for being among the most liberal cities in Europe, Berlin - and especially the district of Kreuzberg - is going through a complicated struggle over how to deal with the weed trade, explained an article in CityLab.

The prickly issue lies in Berlin’s ill-conceived compromise between legalization and criminal control. Berlin, whose legal powers are similar to a U.S. state, allows people to possess up to 15 grams of pot for personal use and has historically maintained a relaxed attitude toward public consumption. So… authorities allow consumption without legalizing the supply. Sound familiar?

DEA Steals $16K From Innocent Man, Leaves Him Without a Way Home

Category: News | Posted on Tue, May, 12th 2015 by THCFinder

Uncle Sam continues to use the War on Drugs to profit from the misfortune of average citizens.

Earlier last month, 22-year-old Joseph Rivers boarded a train bound for Los Angeles in hopes of one day having a career in the entertainment industry. Unfortunately, federal authorities chopped the man’s bright-eyed enthusiasm off at the neck, long before he ever crossed over into California, by stealing his life savings. 

According to The Albuquerque Journal, agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration accosted Rivers at an Amtrak station during a short layover in New Mexico. It was here that agents began giving him and several other passengers the third degree in hopes of establishing evidence to suggest that someone, anyone, might be using the great American rail system to traffic illegal narcotics. 

Witnesses say the shakedown began as a series of typical law enforcement-type questions: "Where are you going… and why?" However, Rivers, the only black man at the scene, was reportedly singled out by an agent and asked for consent to a search of his bag. Hoping to avoid any further hassle, Rivers complied with the DEA’s request.

During the search, agents found an envelope from a Michigan bank containing River’s life savings$16,000 in cash. Although there was nothing in the bag to suggest involvement with the illegal drug trade, agents decided to seize all of the cash based on possibility that Rivers earned it slinging dope.
