Marijuana washes ashore in Laguna Beach

Category: Odd | Posted on Thu, July, 4th 2013 by THCFinder
laguna-beach-weedMore than two pounds of marijuana washed ashore at Irvine Cove on Wednesday afternoon, Laguna Beach police said.
 
The cannabis was loose and in clumps and settled at the north end of the beach between rocks, sand and the tide line, Capt. Jason Kravetz wrote in an email.
 
The city's Marine Safety officers reported the clumps washing ashore at 1 p.m., Kravetz said.
 
The marijuana could have come from a smuggling boat that possibly lost its load or sank, and no other physical evidence, such as life jackets or boat pieces, were found, according to police.
 
Orange County Harbor Patrol and United States Border Patrol officers were still collecting and identifying marijuana Wednesday afternoon.

Berkeley To Federal Prosecutors: Don't Mess With Our Medical Marijuana Program

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, July, 4th 2013 by THCFinder
medicalmarijuana-program
Since two states passed ballot initiatives to legalize recreational marijuana, President Obama has said that he has “bigger fish to fry” than “going after recreational users” in states that have legalized their conduct. But lest anyone think Obama was also suggesting he wouldn’t prosecute dispensers and suppliers, federal prosecutors in several West-Coast states ramped up their crackdowns in May against medical marijuana dispensaries in states where they are legal.
 
Now, Berkeley has become the second California city to challenge these federal government crackdowns. In a motion to halt federal prosecutors from seizing the assets of the city’s largest medical marijuana dispensary, the city is arguing that the federal government is improperly interfering with the the city’s own financial and regulatory interests, as well as its residents’ medical interests:
 
Claimant issued a permit to Berkeley Patients Group to operate on the claimed property as part of a comprehensive plan to regulate medical cannabis dispensaries within the City of Berkeley—a plan to which Claimant has dedicated significant financial and human resources. The claimed property is vital to the safe and affordable distribution of medical cannabis to patients suffering from chronic and acute pain, life threatening and severe illnesses, diseases, and injuries within the City of Berkeley, and to the City of Berkeley’s ability to control and regulate medical cannabis within its community.
 
If the claimed property were forfeited, … Claimant would suffer economic injury due to the substantial loss of tax revenue paid by Berkeley Patients Group … Claimant would also suffer injury to its comprehensive plan to regulate and control medical cannabis dispensaries, which was implemented to positively impact the health, safety and well-being of all City of Berkeley residents. The closure of Berkeley Patients Group will likely lead to an increased number of unregulated, unpermitted dispensaries and an increased number of illicit marijuana sales on Berkeley streets negatively impacting Berkeley neighborhoods and the business community.

Hemp flag flying high over the Capitol building

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, July, 4th 2013 by THCFinder

In a screenshot from the farm bill debate Rep. Jared Polis holds the hemp flag. (Courtesy C-SPAN)The flag flying over the Capitol building on the Fourth of July might look like your typical Old Glory.

But you probably won’t notice the fibers that make it special. It’s believed to be the first hemp flag to flutter over the dome since the government began outlawing marijuana’s less-recreational cousin back in the 1930s.

Colorado hemp advocate Michael Bowman is the man responsible for getting the flag, made from Colorado-raised hemp and screen-printed with the stars and stripes, up there.

He cooked up the idea while lobbying Congress this year to include pro-hemp measures in the farm bill. That legislation failed, of course, but the seed of the hemp flag had been planted.

Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) gave Bowman an assist with the details, which included working with the Capitol’s flag office. (The flag programallows people to buy flags flown over the Capitol, so they rotate in new Old Glories nearly every day.)

“It’s a powerful symbol,” Bowman says, adding that the red, white and blue flying over the Capitol is a reminder of the role that hemp played in the founding and early days of the country. Betsy Ross’s flag was made of hemp, he notes, and Colonial settlers even paid their taxes in the crop — it was used for all kinds of goods, from rope to fabric to paper. Those Conestoga wagons heading west were covered in canvas fashioned from hemp fibers.

So, he thought having it fly on America’s birthday seemed pretty appropriate.

After its Capitol flight, the flag will make its way back to Colorado, where it will fly over the state capitol building in Denver. After that, Bowman is sending it out on a tour of state houses in states where there’s legislation pending that would legalize hemp. One of the first up: Vermont.

And while advocates are quick to point out that hemp lacks the THC content beloved by stoners, this will still be one high-flying flag.
