Pittsburgh NORML Issues Statement On Martavis Bryant NFL Suspension

By now most of Steeler Nation has undoubtedly learned that the black & gold will be without the services of our “star in the making” Martavis Bryant for apparently skipping drug tests with the presumption being that he would fail. Mr. Bryant, as we will recall, missed the first four games of the 2015 season due to cannabis use which is prohibited by the NFL.  I have heard people call him a bad teammate, selfish, immature. I have heard “what a waste of talent” and “he could have been . . . ” I have also heard that Mr. Bryant is hardworking and humble, and in near constant pain from game days.

The NFL, like any employer, is free to set conditions of employment. If Mr. Bryant’s suspension is due to cannabis use the NFL is free to suspend him pursuant to the contract negotiated with the player’s union. Mr. Bryant is no different in this respect from the City sanitation worker, the fire-fighter or anyone else who takes a job knowing that clean urine screens are a condition of employment.

The NFL, however, is no ordinary employer. It makes millionaires out of young men. It demands they engage violent collisions on a weekly basis to entertain the legion of fans. We know that players suffer long term chronic and crippling pain for years. Chicago Bears Super Bowl winning QB Jim McMahon recently detailed his struggles with pain throughout his career and especially since retirement. Former Steelers CB Ryan Clark decried the practice of handing out prescription opioids in the training room with no consideration of the long term effects. Was Mr. Bryant opting for cannabis to treat pain instead of pharmaceuticals? I do not know and will not presume to speculate. I do know that our nation is in the midst of an opioid prescription drug abuse epidemic. One would think the NFL would be open to considering a non-toxic, natural treatment alternative for its most valued assets – its players.

Former California Prison Gone To Pot?

Category: News | Posted on Wed, March, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

A vacant California prison that once housed inmates, presumably some of whom were locked-up for marijuana crimes, could serve a surprisingly different function if one California marijuana company has its away. Ocean Green Extracts, a cannabis concentrate producer in Southern California, wants to turn the defunct Claremont Custody Center into a marijuana grow and cannabis oil production center, the Fresno Bee reports.  

As unlikely as it sounds, Ocean Green pitched the idea to the Coalinga mayor and city manager last month, and, according to the Bee, the city council supports the prison-to-pot proposal. Local residents, however, may be harder to convince: If Ocean Green gets its way, Coalinga would become the first in the San Joaquin Valley to allow for medical marijuana.

Cops caught on camera eating sweets after raiding medical marijuana dispensary will be charged

Category: News | Posted on Tue, March, 15th 2016 by THCFinder

Police who were filmed passing around candy bars and joking about feeling “light headed” after raiding an Orange County medical marijuana dispensary are heading to court to face charges for theft and vandalism.

When the Santa Ana Police Department (SAPD) shut down the Sky High Dispensary, they opened a can of worms. Police knocked down the doors and used crowbars to destroy all of the security cameras in the store – or so they thought. The remaining cameras caught police on their worst behavior. The cops were filmed passing around candy that was believed to be laced with weed.
