Its time to end our failed war on marijuana

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, June, 8th 2013 by THCFinder
Marijuana has become the drug of choice for police departments nationwide—a trend that is playing out with serious consequences here in Rock County. According to a new report released Tuesday by the American Civil Liberties Union, police have turned much of their zeal for fighting the failed War on Drugs toward the enforcement of marijuana laws in communities across Wisconsin and the country.
 
In 2010, cops in Wisconsin busted someone for having marijuana once every 28 minutes. The majority of these arrests are happening in communities of color. Despite roughly comparable usage rates, blacks in Wisconsin are nearly six times more likely than whites to be arrested for marijuana possession.
 
These racial disparities are particularly bad in Rock County. Compared to other Wisconsin counties with more than 300,000 residents, in 2010 Rock had the second-highest rate of racial disparity for marijuana possession arrests.
 
Black people in Rock County are more than six times more likely than whites to be arrested for the same offense—even though blacks constitute only 5 percent of Rock County’s population.
 
And across Wisconsin, these disparities are only getting worse. Between 2001 and 2010, racial disparities in marijuana possession arrests soared more than 150 percent. Only two other states in the nation had higher increases during this period.
 
The aggressive enforcement of marijuana possession laws in Wisconsin needlessly ensnares thousands of people in the criminal justice system, crowds our jails, diverts precious police resources away from focusing on serious crimes, and wastes millions of taxpayer dollars. In 2010 alone, Wisconsin blew as much as $73.1 million enforcing marijuana laws.

Life Sentence For Marijuana

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, June, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
Rich Paul made headlines this week when he announced he would appeal his 81-year sentence for selling marijuana.
 
But as harsh as Paul's sentence might sound, there are those who have it even worse. LifeForPot.org has compiled a list of prisoners who were sentenced to life behind bars for marijuana crimes.
 
The first nine individuals on Beth Curtis' site are over the age of 62. They include John Knock who has been behind bars since 1996. According to Curtis' site, Knock was convicted of a first-time pot offense in a Florida sting operation.
 
Then there's Larry Duke, a decorated Vietnam veteran who's serving life without parole for marijuana-only crimes, according to Life For Pot.
 
"These are lifetime sentences for what, in other countries, they wouldn't in a moment consider incarcerating anybody for," Allen St. Pierre, Executive Director for the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, told The Huffington Post. "Virtually nobody in Europe goes to jail for cannabis offenses. If they do, they have to be caught in large commercial operations, and repeat offenders."
 
Salon previously compiled a list of offenders given long sentences for pot crimes such as Christopher Williams, who faces 82 to 85 years behind bars for providing medical marijuana and Patricia Spottedcrow, a mother of four who's serving a 12-year sentence for selling $31 worth of marijuana.
 
Nationwide, NORML estimates there are around 100,000 people incarcerated for pot-only offenses. That's a relatively small percentage of the roughly 2.4 million Americans currently behind bars.

So, countless stoners from all over the world feel confident in taking that step of tattooed commitment to her. This Cool Marijuana Tattoos feature is all about just that, wickedly awesome and bad ass cannabis tats.

These tattoos are a representation of how millions of pot smokers around the world interpret marijuana differently.

The diverse plant has so many uses and different effects that it should be easy for a weed lover or tat artist to come up with some visually stunning body art.

Looking through these designs it’s easy for you to want to blunt up, hotbox in the car on the way there, and go get tatted the fuck up.

Getting faded out of your natural born mind and going to get artistically stabbed over and over again, can prove to be a damn good time. Besides, when you’re all done and experiencing that painful throbbing sensation in your body, just roll up, light up, and smoke out and in minutes you’ll no longer be bothered but higher than an astronaut and admiring yourself in the mirror.

This is a sleeve any cannabis lover could be proud of. The chemical compounds of cannabis beautifully displayed among an array of leaves in shades of MJ green with some yellow tints added in for detail. The lady bug on the wrist adds the cherry to the Sunday and reminds you that cannabis is, and always will be found in nature.

This next tat is sure to be a fan with heavy hitter medicinal users.

Marijuana is medicine to plenty, and the stoner who chose this design wanted everyone to see.

The magnifying glass is a nice touch that helps others to take a closer look at this amazing leaf. It’s a clean cut and concise  picture of some medicinal MJ, can’t hate on that.

Detail, detail, and then more detail. It might be a wise guess to assume that this tat belongs to that of a grower. They didn’t just want an ordinary leaf, but to showcase the complete cannabis plant. Just to look at it reminds you of everything right in life. The inspiration behind such an elaborate tattoo was sure to be plenty of bong rips and doobie passing. This shows some intense for cannabis sativa, and both artist and participant get a StonerDays 2 blunts up.

An ass tat that presents sexy, simplicity, and weed love in one juicy package. It makes a statement that says, ” I love weed so much that it definitely belongs on my ass”. And it’s hot.

Coming up next is an extremely toasted Green Goblin that brings comic book fantasy into a world full of bongs, blunts, and good kush. His face is way too good to be true and seems to say… “I’m oh so evil and oh so high!” A tat that’s attention getting and smile catching. All these years he should have been called the Sticky Green Goblin.

Smoking and eating it are two great ways for a person to experience MJ, but getting a tattoo is another big but fun way to express  and sow to the world that you enjoy being higher than the average person, and you’re not afraid to show it.

Nearly half of adults say they have tried marijuana, but not recently

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, June, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
More Americans than ever say they’ve smoked marijuana, but for most of them it doesn’t seem to have become a habit.
 
In a recent Pew Research Center survey, 48% of adults said they had tried marijuana, up from 40% just three years ago. But among that group, just 12% said they had smoked marijuana within the past year.
 
Among that group, marijuana use is primarily recreational: Nearly half (47%) said they smoked “just for fun,” versus 30% who cited a medical issue, while 23% cited both reasons.
 
More than half (56%) of young adults say they’ve tried marijuana, and 27% say they’ve smoked it in the past year — by far the highest percentage in any age category. That’s also the age group showing the strongest support for legalizing the demon weed: 64%, compared with just over half of 30- to 64-year-olds.
 
Among that older group, about half of people ages 30 to 49 (51%) and 50 to 64 (54%) have tried marijuana, although only about one in ten did so last year. Just 22% of adults 65 and older say they’ve ever used marijuana, though a third support its legalization.

Marijuana publications sue over treat-pot-magazines-like-porn law

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, May, 31st 2013 by THCFinder
After we reported about an element of the main marijuana bill that treated pot magazines like porn, a spokesman for High Times announced an intent to sue if the section wasn't cut. Shortly thereafter, attorney David Lane said a suit would be forthcoming if the edict became law.
Lane wasn't bluffing. Mere days after Governor John Hickenlooper signed the bill containing the passage, he filed suit on behalf of High Times and two other mags. Details, the documents and more below.
 
As we've reported, the law originally known as House Bill 13-1317 calls for "a requirement that magazines whose primary focus is marijuana or marijuana businesses are only sold in retail marijuana stores or behind the counter in establishments where persons under twenty-one years of age are present."
 
In other words, a convenience store wanting to stock weed-oriented publications won't be able to do so in standard racks easily accessible to customers. Rather, issues will be next to porn mags, with their covers presumably shielded to protect children -- and customers will have to ask clerks to grab copies for them.
 
Marijuana lawyer Warren Edson was left slack-jawed by this requirement. Proponents of Amendment 64, which allows adults 21 and over in Colorado to use and possess small amounts of cannabis, "said to regulate marijuana like alcohol," he told us, "but apparently, our legislature wants to regulate it like porn.
