Alaska Poised To Become Marijuana Legalization Battleground

Category: News | Posted on Fri, April, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
JUNEAU, Alaska -- Alaska, known for its live-and-let-live lifestyle, is poised to become the next battleground in the push to legalize the recreational use of marijuana.
 
The state has a complicated history with the drug, with its highest court ruling nearly 40 years ago that adults have a constitutional right to possess and smoke marijuana for personal use in their own homes. In the late 1990s, Alaska became one of the first states to allow the use of pot for medicinal reasons.
 
Then the pendulum swung the other direction, with residents in 2004 rejecting a ballot effort to legalize recreational marijuana. And in 2006, the state passed a law criminalizing possession of even small amounts of the drug – leaving the current state of affairs somewhat murky.
 
Supporters of recreational marijuana say attitudes toward pot have softened in the past decade, and they believe they have a real shot at success in Alaska.
 
The state is reviewing their request to begin gathering signatures to get an initiative on next year's ballot. The proposal would make it legal for those 21 and older to use and possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana, though not in public. It also would set out provisions for legal grow operations and establish an excise tax.

Police dogs in Washington no longer trained to sniff out marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Fri, April, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
BREMERTON, Wash. — Bremerton Police Officer Dahle "Duke" Roessel and his new dog partner, Dusty, combed the rooms of a West Bremerton hotel during a practice session Tuesday. Dusty, an 18-month-old black Lab, sniffed around for meth, heroin and cocaine that had been planted there. But not pot.
 
The Bremerton Police Department, following in the footsteps of many law enforcement agencies around the state, is not training its newest officer how to sniff out marijuana. Months after voters approved an initiative legalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana, Dusty is the first narcotics dog in Kitsap with the distinction.
 
Dusty was bred at North Bend Retriever Kennel to be a champion birding dog. He was a bit too restless for that job, but his insatiable drive to look for things made him "perfect for what we need," Roessel said.

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, April, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Lawmakers and terminally ill patients gathered on the steps of City Hall on Thursday to call for the passage of a medical marijuana law in New York State.
 
Beverly McClain has stage 4 breast cancer.
 
“I now have metastasis in my bones, in my lymph nodes and in my brain,” McClain told reporters including WCBS 880′s Rich Lamb.
 
She has used marijuana to ease her pain and nausea.
 
“Medical marijuana for me is synonymous with just being able to take a break from all the hell that people like me have to go through,” said McClain.
 
She said a lot of patients are afraid to use marijuana medicinally until it is legal.
 
“I would really appreciate it if we could pass this law before I die,” she added.
