Drug Traffickers Seek Safe Haven Amid Legal Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Fri, January, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

Seeking a safe haven in Colorado's legal marijuana marketplace, illegal drug traffickers are growing weed among the state's sanctioned pot warehouses and farms, then covertly shipping it elsewhere and pocketing millions of dollars from the sale, according to law enforcement officials and court records consulted by The Associated Press.

In one case, the owner of a skydiving business crammed hundreds of pounds of Colorado pot into his planes and flew the weed to Minnesota, where associates allegedly sold it for millions of dollars in cash. In another, a Denver man was charged with sending more than 100 pot-filled FedEx packages to Buffalo, New York, where drug dealers divvied up the shipment. Twenty other drug traffickers, many from Cuba, were accused of relocating to Colorado to grow marijuana that they sent to Florida, where it can fetch more than double the price in a legal Colorado shop.

These cases and others confirm a longstanding fear of marijuana opponents that the state's much-watched experiment in legal pot would invite more illegal trafficking to other states where the drug is still strictly forbidden.

The passage of the controversial measure occurred under unusual circumstances. Almost no notice of the markup of the controversial bill was provided. Notice was not provided to the public until only a few minutes before markup, and even Committee members received less than 24 hours’ notice of bill consideration, in violation of the Committee’sown rules. In a very rare move, remarked upon by other councilmembers, Council Chairman Phil Mendelson joined the committee for the markup and provided the swing vote to advance the bill.

The bill approved by the Committee would make permanent the current blanket ban on marijuana use in private clubs, which is set to expire on April 15th. The bill bars entities from providing adults with private spaces other than a residence to consume marijuana, and requires the Mayor’s office to revoke a business’ license after only one instance of a patron consuming marijuana on the premises.

As written the legislation is needlessly broad and expands the criminalization of marijuana consumption by adults, contrary to the will of District voters who resoundingly rejected marijuana criminalization.

 

Kaitlyn Boecker of the national affairs office for Drug Policy Alliance had this to say,

Sister Kate and her apprentice Sister Darcy are not really nuns, but they do have a real mission—to grow and produce medical marijuana for those in need. They sell their products at moderate prices on Etsy, under the brand name Sisters of the Valley.

Kate, a 56-year-old Milwaukee native, spent a decade working in a business-related job in Amsterdam. After divorce and hard times hit, she decided to venture into an industry she knew about: pot.

But why the nun’s habit?

Kate told the Daily Beast that her nun persona came about when she decided to wear a habit to an Occupy protest, and people gravitated to her for advice and comfort and to ask for prayers. So she decided to keep it.
