Supreme Court Gives Judges Flexibility In Mandatory Minimum Cases

Category: News | Posted on Sat, April, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

The US Supreme Court on April 4 handed down a unanimous decision in Dean v. United States, giving federal judges greater flexibility in mandatory minimum cases—an aim activists have long been demanding. Advocacy group Families Against Mandatory Minimums filed a brief in support of the petitioner in the case.

As Bloomberg BNA reports, Levon Dean Jr, of Sioux City, faced consecutive mandatory minimum sentences for use of a firearm in two robberies of local drug dealers. The two mandatory sentences added up to 30 years: a five-year minimum for the first offense and a 25-year minimum for the second. Because of the severity of the mandatory firearm term, Dean requested a sentence of just one day on his robbery and conspiracy charges. The district court wrote that 30 years plus one day was “more than sufficient,” but nonetheless believed it lacked the authority to bend the mandatory minimum law. The Supreme Court has now found otherwise, and Dean will be getting his 30 years plus one day.

How much marijuana has been grown in Washington? Over 150,000 pounds of useable marijuana produced in fiscal year 2017 under Washington’s Legal System. Washington’s legal marijuana market is booming, which is resulting in a lot of cannabis being grown.

According to the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board, there has been 363,268 pounds (lbs) of marijuana harvested in fiscal year (FY) 2017, which began on July 1, 2016 and ends on June 30. Of this harvested marijuana, 155,494 lbs is considered “useable”, which is what is sold at marijuana retail outlets.

Outside of dried flower, this harvested cannabis has led to 20,736 lbs of marijuana extracts being produced. This has resulted in the sale, this year alone, of 5,790,351 units of inhalation products (vape products), 2,923,042 units of edibles (brownies, cookies), 729,508 units of marijuana-infused liquids (drinks, tinctures), and 179,419 units of topicals (lotions, ointments).

Oregon Marijuana Sales Far Exceed Expectations

Category: News | Posted on Sat, April, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

Legal cannabis sales in America continue to be brisk in every state where the drug is sold over-the-counter—and they continue to defy expectations.

American consumers have a far greater appetite for marijuana than economists, accountants and other estimators thought. As sales figures from Oregon reveal, actual legal cannabis sales have outstripped some projections by more than six times.

In Oregon, through the first three months of the year, roughly 11,000 pounds of cannabis were legally sold in the state’s approximately 300 legal dispensaries, for total sales revenue of $43.7 million, according to a recent report from the state Department of Revenuepublished last week by KATU-2 News.
