Kansas Couple Whose Tea Was Mistaken for Marijuana Loses Lawsuit

Category: News | Posted on Tue, December, 22nd 2015 by THCFinder

Last week, a federal judge in Kansas ruled against a couple whose home was raided in 2012 in an unsuccessful "SWAT-style" search for marijuana. 

According to Reason.com, U.S. District Judge John Lungstrum said that police acted "legally and reasonably in planning and conducting the fruitless raid on the home of Robert and Adlynn Harte, former CIA agents whose children were 7 and 13 at the time."

The family was held at gunpoint for over two hours while Johnson County sheriff's deputies ransacked their house, finding nothing and refusing to say why they thought the Hartes were growing marijuana. 

The couple reportedly spent a year and $25,000 in legal fees to find out what "probable cause" police had to support a search warrant.

Pittsburgh decriminalizes pot possession

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, December, 21st 2015 by THCFinder

Pittsburgh City Council is ending its 2015 legislative session on a high note, having voted Monday morning to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana within city limits.

Council voted 7-2 in favor of a bill, sponsored by Councilman Daniel Lavelle, that allows police to levy a fine of up to $100 against anyone possessing up to 30 grams of marijuana or 8 grams of hashish. In the case of minors, parents or guardians will be notified of the offense and must pay the fine.

Supporters say that’s better than charging suspects with a misdemeanor criminal offense, which can saddle defendants with a potentially job-killing rap sheet and burden police with paperwork.

Mayor Bill Peduto has pledged to sign the bill: A spokesman called it “a common-sense change that will help protect the futures of young people.”

Patrick Nightingale, a marijuana reform activist, hailed the measure, which is similar to a Philadelphia ordinance passed in 2014. The legislation “will protect Pittsburghers of all colors and all ages from unwarranted and unnecessary police interactions, and it will help police more efficiently utilize limited resources,” he said.

The Details About The Detroit Medical Marijuana Dispensary Ordinance

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, December, 21st 2015 by THCFinder

detroit marijuanaIt may not start until March 1, 2016, but these are the facts you should know about the new medical marijuana dispensary ordinance passed by Detroit’s City Council last week.

Medical marijuana dispensaries, called Caregiver Centers (CC) in the Ordinance, must apply with the city for licensing. Applications will be taken from existing and prospective CCs begins on March 1, 2016. Existing businesses have a 30 day window in which to apply. They have to show “significant progress” within 60 days and must have completed the process within 60 days after receiving their building permit. Several other benchmarks apply, and those applicants who are late with payments may find themselves rejected, according to the language of the ordinance.

The fee structure is yet to be determined. The job is the responsibility of the Director of the BSEED, and the amount of licensing revenue generated will be determined by the amount of “the cost of issuance and the administration of the licensing regulations, and shall be approved by resolution of the City Council.”

CCs can be established in the B2, B4, M1, M2, M3 and M4 zoning districts. Prohibited areas include Traditional Main Street Overlay or Gateway Radial Thoroughfare Areas. CCs must provide one offstreet parking spot for every 200 square feet of the Center. They cannot be less than 1,000 feet from another CC, from a park recognized by the Recreation Department, from a religious institution which has received a tax exemption from the city, or from a businesses identified as a controlled use (topless clubs and liquor stores).
