Mobile medical marijuana dispensaries look to be next big issue

Category: News | Posted on Sun, June, 23rd 2013 by THCFinder
mmj-delivery-servicesTwo green crosses frame an announcement that Lima Collective Inc. in Running Springs is closed, and -- technically -- medical marijuana is no longer sold inside, said Mitchell Blanda, who ran the collective with two partners until the county told them they had to shut down.
But Blanda, two partners and occasional volunteers say openly that their operation continues "clandestinely."
 
Behind the counter, a chest contains samples of edibles, drops and marijuana accessories, the same types of items shown on the collective's website.
 
"You can order it by the phone, online, whatever, and we deliver it," said Blanda, 62. "Our patients still need it. We're not in it for money -- we barely break even -- but we think it's important for us to keep doing."
 
In an early May ruling, the state Supreme Court said local governments could ban dispensaries. But the city of Riverside, on June 11, went further with its City Council approving an emergency ordinance to prohibit mobile marijuana dispensaries as "necessary for preserving public peace, health, and safety," according to an agenda report.
 
Riverside Deputy City Attorney Neil Okazaki in video of the Riverside meeting said before its passage that "what we have found with other cities is that when storefront dispensaries close, what the operators do is move to a mobile operation where mobile marijuana dispensaries operate and deliver ... much like a pizza delivery service."
 
Back in Running Springs, Blanda said it's no secret to anyone in the small San Bernardino Mountains community that he delivers to about 9,000 people. That's about what it was before the Supreme Court's decision, although some people still come in to ask if the collective is open, he said.
 
Looking more frustrated than furtive, Blanda said he thought his operations were legal, based on the tentative opinion of attorney James DeAguilera, who represents the collective.
 
"Everything is a 'maybe,'" he said. "No one seems to know for sure what's allowed and what's not."

U.S. Mayors Demand Change to Federal Policy, End to Crackdown on Medical Marijuana

us-mayors-mmjA resolution calling for change to federal policy is on the agenda at this weekend's annual mayors meeting
 
LAS VEGAS, NV — As mayors from across the country gather today in Las Vegas for the 81st annual U.S. Conference of Mayors, the federal government’s crackdown on medical marijuana is expected to be discussed and debated over the weekend.
 
A resolution ”in support of states setting their own marijuana policies without federal interference” was introduced in advance of the conference by San Diego Mayor Bob Filner and co-sponsored by eight other mayors from across the country. Deliberation on the resolution comes days after medical marijuana advocates issued an alarming report detailing how the Obama Justice Department has spent nearly $300 million to undermine medical marijuana laws in the U.S.

“Ultimately, this is about whether local and state governments can develop, adopt, and implement public health laws without heavy-handed interference by the federal government,” said Steph Sherer, Executive Director of Americans for Safe Access, which authored “What’s the Cost?”, an extensive report issued last week on the economic and social costs of the federal government’s war on medical marijuana.
 
“This resolution is emblematic of the frustration experienced by local and state officials, which will continue until the federal government ends its attacks on medical marijuana.” More than 100 million people, or 34 percent of Americans, currently live in states with medical marijuana laws.

73-year-old faces jail for growing pot, smoking 25 bowls a day

Category: News | Posted on Sat, June, 22nd 2013 by THCFinder
73yearold-jail-timeOn June 6, Ray Martin McFeters, 73, was charged in Aitkin County District Court with distribution or possession of more than 42.5 grams of marijuana and failure to attach tax stamps to the marijuana.
 
McFeters is also charged with felony possession of “not a small amount of marijuana” as stated in the criminal complaint filed with the Aitkin County District Court.
 
McFeters is a retired computer programmer who lives with his wife Patty on the north shore of Mille Lacs Lake. He learned to write code while serving four years with the United States Air Force in crypto maintenance during the Cuban missile crisis. He was honorably discharged in 1964.
 
“Yeah, I grew a few plants,” McFeters said. “I thought I was doing good by not supporting the cartels and everything like that.”
 
According to the complaint, McFeters had 22 marijuana plants in various stages of growth.
 
Aitkin County Sheriff’s Deputy Daniel Guida first heard there was a marijuana grow at the McFeters’ residence in early 2013 through an anonymous tip. According to the complaint, Guida stopped by the house several times but never found anyone home. On April 13, Guida stated that he saw fresh tracks in the snow near McFeter’s mailbox.
