Buying weed on Craigslist: Denver police arrest three in bust

Category: News | Posted on Sun, May, 10th 2015 by THCFinder

Three Denver men are accused of trying to sell marijuana on Craigslist after an undercover sting by the Denver Police Department’s marijuana unit.

An officer found a posting on the online marketplace for marijuana for sale. The officer contacted Samuel Rodgers, 22, and agreed to buy 4¼ pounds for $10,000, according to arrest affidavits filed in the case.

The undercover officer met Rodgers on Wednesday at one location and then they drove to Buddy Boy, a marijuana distributor and retailer at 5050 N. York St.

There, they met Harrison Bowman, 19, who said a third person was coming and they “would do the deal,” the arrest affidavits said.

Joseph Jaszczyk, 36, arrived carrying a large, blue backpack that appeared to be full, the arrest affidavit said.

All three were arrested on marijuana distribution charges.

The police department posted news of the bust on its Facebook page.

Jaszczyk was an employee at Buddy Boy and had been buying thousands of dollars worth of marijuana from his employer, according to the Facebook post. The purchases were legal through a doctor’s order.

Medical marijuana patients are allowed to buy more than two ounces at a time if they have a designated medical marijuana center and documentation from a physician that allows large purchases, according to the state’s Marijuana Enforcement Division.

Legal Marijuana Faces Another Federal Hurdle: Taxes

Category: News | Posted on Sun, May, 10th 2015 by THCFinder

DENVER — Money was pouring into Bruce Nassau’s five Colorado marijuana shops when his accountant called with the bad news: The 2014 tax season was approaching, and Mr. Nassau could not rely on the galaxy of deductions that other businesses use to reduce their tax bills. He was going to owe the Internal Revenue Service a small fortune.
 
“I had to write a check for $275,000,” Mr. Nassau said. “Unbelievable.”
 
The country’s rapidly growing marijuana industry has a tax problem. Even as more states embrace legal marijuana, shops say they are being forced to pay crippling federal income taxes because of a decades-old law aimed at preventing drug dealers from claiming their smuggling costs and couriers as business expenses on their tax returns.
 
Congress passed that law in 1982 after a cocaine and methamphetamine dealer in Minneapolis who had been jailed on drug charges went to tax court to argue that the money he spent on travel, phone calls, packaging and even a small scale should be considered tax write-offs. The provision, still enforced by the I.R.S., bans all tax credits and deductions from “the illegal trafficking in drugs.”
 
Marijuana business owners say it prevents them from deducting their rent, employee salaries or utility bills, forcing them to pay taxes on a far larger amount of income than non-marijuana businesses with the same earnings and costs. They also say the taxes, which apply to medical and recreational sellers alike, are stunting their hiring, or even threatening to drive them out of business.
