Kansas Couple Grows Vegetables Indoors, Raided for Marijuana, Sues

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 30th 2013 by THCFinder
LEAWOOD, KS — Two former CIA employees whose Kansas home was fruitlessly searched for marijuana during a two-state drug sweep claim they were illegally targeted, possibly because they had bought indoor growing supplies to raise vegetables.
 
Adlynn and Robert Harte sued this week to get more information about why sheriff’s deputies searched their home in the upscale Kansas City suburb of Leawood last April 20 as part of Operation Constant Gardener – a sweep conducted by agencies in Kansas and Missouri that netted marijuana plants, processed marijuana, guns, growing paraphernalia and cash from several other locations.
 
April 20 long has been used by the marijuana community to celebrate the cannabis plant, and more recently by law enforcement for raids and crackdowns. But the Hartes’ attorney, Cheryl Pilate, said she suspects the couple’s 1,825-square-foot split level was targeted because they had bought hydroponic equipment to grow a small number of tomatoes and squash plants in their basement.
 
“With little or no other evidence of any illegal activity, law enforcement officers make the assumption that shoppers at the store are potential marijuana growers, even though the stores are most commonly frequented by backyard gardeners who grow organically or start seedlings indoors,” the couple’s lawsuit says.

Arizona ruling on DUI test for marijuana appealed

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 30th 2013 by THCFinder
PHOENIX (AP) -- The Arizona Supreme Court is being asked to review a lower court's ruling that marijuana smokers can be prosecuted for driving under the influence even when there is no evidence that they are actually high.
 
The Court of Appeals on Feb. 12 overturned a trial judge who said it doesn't make sense to prosecute people with no evidence they're under the influence.
 
At issue are the chemical compounds in marijuana that show up in blood and urine tests after people smoke pot.
 
The case stems from a motorist's blood test. It revealed only a chemical compound that is found in the blood after another compound produced from ingesting marijuana breaks down.
 
The Supreme Court will receive additional legal briefs before deciding whether or not to hear the case.

Legal Nevada Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Could Open in a Year

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Sat, March, 30th 2013 by THCFinder
A lawmaker pushing for medical marijuana dispensaries in Nevada says they could be open within a year if legislators pass a bill to allow them this session.
 
Medical marijuana is already legal in Nevada, but state law does not allow for dispensaries, reports the Las Vegas Sun. On Friday, most members of the state's Senate Judiciary Committee voiced support for a bill sponsored by Democratic State Sen. Tick Segerblom.
 
Segerblom said he hopes the first clinics will open in a year, but lawmakers must vote by mid-April for that to happen. He said there are 3,500 registered medical marijuana users in Nevada, but the number could grow to 35,000. 
 
Through marijuana dispensaries, registered users could buy the drug for $10 an ounce, and would be limited to two ounces of marijuana in any 14-day period.
 
Lawmakers are still questioning whether people with medical marijuana cards from other states will be able to buy the drug in Nevada, and how the dispensaries will obtain their supplies. It's likely both issues will be addressed in amendments to Segerblom's bill.
