MORGAN CITY -- A Morgan City man was arrested after trying to pay for a carnival game with marijuana.
Police said Antonio Campbell, 25, is charged with possession and with violation of uniform controlled dangerous substance law.
An officer working the fairground area during the Louisiana Shrimp & Petroleum Festival observed a man take an object from his pants pocket that appeared to be a cellophane bag containing suspected marijuana, show the object to a fair worker and then place it back into his pocke.
Officers detained Campbell and during questioning and investigation, a cellophane bag containing suspected marijuana was allegedly located in Campbell’s pocket as the officer had observed.

Wisconsin Bill to Increase Penalties for Marijuana Possession Introduced
Category: News | Posted on Wed, September, 4th 2013 by THCFinder
MADISON, WI — Legislation is pending in the Senate and Assembly that seeks to allow municipalities to penalize marijuana possession offenders in instances where the District Attorney has refused to prosecute.
Under state law, local governments prosecute first-time marijuana possession offenses involving 25 grams or fewer. Repeat offenses, or any offense involving a quantity of marijuana over 25 grams, is prosecuted in state court at the discretion of the District Attorney.
Senate Bill 150 and its companion bill (AB 164) would allow local jurisdictions to enact ordinances allowing for municipal courts to prosecute repeat cannabis possession offenders and/or those charged with possession more than 25 grams of cannabis in cases where the District Attorney has explicitly declined to do so.
At a time when many states and local jurisdictions are moving away from spending limited resources to target minor marijuana offenders, it makes little sense to enact legislation allowing for the continued prosecution of such persons in instances where the District Attorney has decided to forgo such actions

Washington: Bar Owner Defends Allowing Customers to Smoke Marijuana On His Premises
Category: News | Posted on Tue, September, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
Frank Schnarrs, owner of Frankie's Sports Bar & Grill in Olympia, Washington, is defending what he considers to be legal activity that is taking place on the second floor of his establishment, which is adults over the age of 21 consuming marijuana.
Frank claims that the individuals partaking in the recreational doings are doing so legally due to the fact that the aforementioned second floor has been designated as a private club for dues paying members only.
Members of said club pay an annual fee of $10 to gain access to the selected smoking spot which isn't accessible to the public, but the state's Liquor Control Board claims that since Frankie's is a licensed business it is indeed considered a public establishment and he is operating outside of the law.
The private pot club currently generates approximately 60 percent of Frankie's income which he says has actually saved him from having to close his doors.
The Liquor Control Board declares they are well aware of the actions that are taking place at Frankie's, but haven't stated what steps they will take to rectify the situation.
