Cops In Trouble For Destroyed Plants

cops-in-trouble-for-destroying-weed-plants
Cops can be real jerks when it comes to marijuana. They really enjoy nothing more then messing with completely innocent potheads who are just trying to get by. Even those that are totally and 100% compliant with state laws aren't safe from the police. Many patients risk their freedom to grow their own medicine, a right which they have voted on and passed. There should be no raids on grow operations anymore but they're still happening. Thankfully, patients are beginning to fight back and the law, for once, is on their side.
 
Cops bust down doors with battering rams, tear plants out of their pots, and break equipment during a raid. The damages that they can cause to a grow and to the premises themselves can stretch in to the millions of dollars, money that the patients want to get back. Patients who get in trouble and are then acquitted or have the charges against them dropped are fighting back with this illegal treatment and seeking the satisfaction they deserve; compensation for hard work and income spent that was destroyed by a bunch of cocky "enforcers".
 
Thanks to the new laws, cops are held accountable for the damages that they cause during raids. Now, police are a little more careful when they come storming in... Rather, walking in now. In place of the once violent "take down" tactics, some police forces are even just taking photos and taking leaf clippings as evidence of alleged "crimes" in order to avoid steep lawsuits. Legal experts everywhere say that as cannabis continues to gain support and the laws change in favor of patients and users, officials are going to have no choice but to use caution when dealing with cannabis related offenses. "Law enforcement is going to have to think more carefully about what their procedures are and how those procedures might need to change in light of change in the law," says Sam Kamin, a law professor at the University of Denver, to the Associated Press.
 
Colorado law says that police have to return all seized medical marijuana back to those who are found not guilty. This gives patients a little bit of comfort, knowing that even if the cops decide to throw weight around, they will get their compensation. At least, that is in Colorado. California is a different story, where even the court orders don't guarantee that a patient will get their hard work back after the terrible journey through the court system. There was an issue in Pasadena earlier this year where the cops refused to return $8,000 worth of medical marijuana to a man named Charles Pollard, even though the Los Angeles Superior Court ordered them to.

Hemp Could Be Used To Make Better Batteries

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 14th 2014 by THCFinder
hemp-could-help-make-better-batteriesThe hemp plant never ceases to amaze me. It’s so versatile. Hemp can be used to make medicine, clothes, paper, and many other things. One thing that hemp can apparently also be used for, which is very cool and I didn’t know about, is to make better super-batteries. Per NBC:
 
Industrial hemp, the non-psychoactive cousin of marijuana, can play a role in manufacturing super-powerful supercapacitors for energy storage at a cost that’s far cheaper than graphene, researchers report. The hemp-based technology took center stage Tuesday at the American Chemical Society’s national meeting in San Francisco. A team led by David Mitlin, an engineering professor at Clarkson University, heated up hemp fibers to create carbon nanosheets that can be used as electrodes for supercapacitors. Compared with graphene, the hemp-derived carbon is “a little bit better, but it’s 1,000 times cheaper,” Mitlin told NBC News.
 
How cool is that!? Not only does hemp make better batteries, it’s far cheaper. While the article didn’t specifically state it, I’d imagine that the hemp used for the process is much safer and easier to dispose of than what is currently being used. Is there anything that hemp can’t do?
 
It sounds like the engineer behind the research has started a company trying to bring this technology to the marketplace. He is looking for partners, and I’d imagine he won’t have a hard time finding any. What he will have a hard time with, by his own admission, is getting around hemp laws which make it hard, if not impossible, to get the raw product he needs to make the super batteries. Reform hemp laws, allow this guy to make super batteries, and the world will be a much better place as a result. This is a no-brainer.

New Mexico Employers Discriminating Against Patients?

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, August, 14th 2014 by THCFinder

The older you get, the less worried you become about things like epilepsy, seeing as how disorders like that tend to develop earlier in life. This wasn't the case for Robert Pack, a manager of ticketing and audience services at the Monterrey Symphony Orchestra located in Carmel, California. It was at this time as a manager that Pack discovered that he had adult onset epilepsy after he had a seizure at work one day.
 
Of course, Pack was immediately prescribed multiple medications, non of which seemed to work except one. This particular drug gave Pack severe nausea, extremely bad anxiety, and insomnia. These effects began to have a toll and Pack's doctor recommended utilizing the cannabis plant in order to stem the bad side effects. When Pack started using marijuana, he noticed an incredible difference in how he felt. "Let me just say that cannabis is the absolute best anti nausea medication in the world. Absolutely the best. It immediately mitigated the nausea. It immediately took care of the anxiety and my appetite improved. It became more normal," he says. Pack used cannabis twice a day, every day without fail, since then. And because he lived in California, he was a medical marijuana patient. But he still didn't inform his employer of this new medicine and instead, kept it quiet while he wrestled with his health issues.
 
When Pack's mother died, he was driven back to Carlsbad, New Mexico where he was offered a job at Hastings bookstore as an assistant manager. The catch? He had to pass a drug test. But when Pack informed the regional management at Hastings about his medication, they didn't really say anything other than to go ahead and take the test. "They were kind of giving me the wink to go and get a masking kit and cover it up," Pack said. But as a proud medical marijuana patient, he didn't want to cover up his cannabis use. So he failed the test. "They withdrew the job offer because I did test positive for cannabis use and I pointed out to them that New Mexico was a legal state that didn't matter. I pointed out to them that I had no criminal record. That didn't matter. My work record. My experience. None of that mattered," he stated.
 
There are five states in the US that have implemented laws against employers discriminating against cannabis using patients. New Mexico still hasn't put those laws in to place. For now, Pack has retired but not by choice. He refuses to stand down and lives off of the family farm. He spends the majority of his time advocating employee rights in New Mexico, working to get employers to accept the medical marijuana users in to the empty jobs. It's sad to see patients be so discriminated against and hopefully, the laws adapt soon to protect patients from terrible employers that just don't seem to care
