In Arizona, Top Prosecutor’s Office Profits from Marijuana Arrests

Category: News | Posted on Sun, October, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

In Arizona the fight to maintain marijuana prohibition has been led in recent years by Bill Montgomery, the top prosecutor in the state’s largest county.

He’s the face of the campaign opposing a ballot measure that Arizona voters will either approve or reject in two weeks. His repeated lawsuits aimed at derailing the medical-marijuana system approved in 2010, which have mostly failed, delayed the system’s implementation by about a year.

report published in the Arizona Republic Wednesday reveals why Montgomery has such a keen interest in keeping marijuana laws on the books: His agency, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office (MCAO), reaps millions of dollars every year because of the illegality of marijuana.

Prop 64 Gains Major Newspaper Endorsements

Category: News | Posted on Sun, October, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

The campaign behind California’s Proposition 64 to legalize cannabis for everyone 21 and older announced that they’ve received the official endorsement of the San Diego Union-Tribune.

According to the Yes on Prop 64 campaign, this means that “every large-circulation daily newspaper in Southern California has now endorsed Proposition 64.”

The endorsement from the Union-Tribune is an important one, as the paper opposed Proposition 19 to legalize cannabis in 2010. The Union-Tribune joins the Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles Daily News, Orange County Register and Riverside Press Enterprise as outlets that opposed Prop 19 in 2010. All publications support Proposition 64 in this year’s election.

Weed as way of life: California farmers divided on legal bud

Category: News | Posted on Sun, October, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

GARBERVILLE, Calif. (AP) — Laura Costa’s son and husband moved quickly with the pruning shears to harvest the family’s fall marijuana crop, racing along with several workers to cut the plants and drop them in plastic bins ahead of an impending storm.

The rain could invite “bud rot,” Costa said, “a big no-no.”

The farm, hidden along a winding mountain road in a remote redwood forest, is just one of many illegal “grows” that make up Northern California’s famous Emerald Triangle, a rural region that developed over decades into a marijuana-producing mecca at the intersection of Humboldt, Mendocino and Trinity counties.

California voters will decide Nov. 8 whether to legalize marijuana for recreational use – an issue that has sown deep division here among longtime growers. The Costa family and many other pot farmers have yearned for the legitimacy and respectability that growers of legal crops enjoy.

After Election Day, access to marijuana likely to reach all-time high across nation

Category: News | Posted on Sat, October, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

DENVER — Nearly 60 million Americans may wake up Nov. 9 to find voters in their states have abolished long-standing marijuana prohibitions, a three-fold expansion for legal cannabis across the country.

Another 24 million Americans could find themselves in states with newly legal medical marijuana use, a smaller but still significant expansion of legalized pot around the United States. Already, half of the states permit some form of medical marijuana use, and more than half of all Americans live in a state that has approved medical marijuana.

California, experts say, will likely play the most significant role in cannabis legalization on Nov. 8. Voters in our most populous state are widely expected to approve the “Adult Use of Marijuana Act,” adding nearly 40 million names to the list of people who live in a state with legal pot.

Santa Ana to Pay $100,000 to Dispensary at Center of Controversial Raid

Category: News | Posted on Fri, October, 28th 2016 by THCFinder

Governing officials all over the nation will soon learn there can be savage consequences for continuing to bully the legal cannabis trade. For the city of Santa Ana, California, that lesson now involves coughing up a substantial settlement to prevent the owners of a local medical marijuana dispensary from going for the jugular in court after several cocky cops made a national spectacle out of themselves during a raid on the business last year.

report from the Orange County Register indicates that Sky High Holistic has apparently applied enough legal pressure that the city of Santa Ana has agreed to pay a settlement of $100,000—money that will be split between dispensary volunteers Marla and David James and a physician who lost the use of his utilities as a result of the raid. The city has also agreed to drop all of the criminal charges.

“The settlement of civil rights claims and dismissal of criminal actions shows Santa Ana is taking responsibility for improper actions it took, including the raid of Sky High Holistic, in support of its lottery-based marijuana regulation ordinance,” Long Beach attorney Matthew Pappas said in a statement.
