Denver Seeks to Allow Marijuana in Bars and Restaurants

Category: News | Posted on Thu, June, 18th 2015 by THCFinder

After a year and a half of retail pot sales in Colorado, activists have decided to take the concept of legal weed to the next level by campaigning to allow social pot consumption in businesses where booze is served.

Organizers behind the 2012 passing of Amendment 64 are hoping to get a new initiative on the ballot in Denver’s election this November that would allow voters to decide whether people should be permitted to smoke weed in specific commercial dwellings, such as bars and restaurants

The concept behind the measure, entitled “The Limited Social Marijuana Consumption Initiative,” is to give bars and restaurants the freedom to use a portion of their establishment for cannabis consumption. It is their belief that since bars and clubs allow patrons to consume alcohol, they should also permit the use of the state’s newly legal inebriant for recreational tokers.

"We're proposing a narrow exemption to Denver's current ban on social cannabis use by adults," Mason Tvert, communications director with the Marijuana Policy Project and one of the sponsors of the proposal, told the Denver Post. "It would simply allow adults 21 and older to consume marijuana in designated areas and venues where only adults are allowed. This is allowing adults to have the option to use marijuana in certain venues that choose to allow it."

Governor Markell Signs Delaware Marijuana Decriminalization Bill Into Law

Category: News | Posted on Thu, June, 18th 2015 by THCFinder

Dont mess with DelawareDelaware Gov. Jack Markell signed a bill into law Thursday night that will remove criminal penalties and potential jail time for adult possession of a small amount of marijuana. The Delaware Senate approved the bill 12-9 earlier in the evening. The new law will take effect in six months.

HB 39, introduced by Rep. Helene Keeley (D-Wilmington South) in the House and sponsored by Judiciary Committee Chair Margaret Rose Henry (D-Wilmington East) in the Senate, will replace criminal penalties for adult marijuana possession with a civil fine similar to a traffic ticket. Under current Delaware law, possession of up to one ounce of marijuana is a misdemeanor with a maximum punishment of a $575 fine and three months in jail.

Delaware is the 20th state to decriminalize marijuana possession or make it legal for adults. Nineteen other states and the District of Columbia have adopted laws removing the threat of jail time for simple marijuana possession, four of which also regulate marijuana similarly to alcohol. The Illinois General Assembly approved a similar measure in May, which is now awaiting action from the governor.

Statement from Robert Capecchi, deputy director of state policies for the Marijuana Policy Project:

Experts Concerned About Unregulated Pot Pesticides

Category: News | Posted on Wed, June, 17th 2015 by THCFinder

According to a new report from NPR, concern is growing over the use of unregulated pesticides by commercial cannabis growers. 

"It's the federal government that tells farmers which pesticides are safe to use," NPR reported. "And so far, the feds wants nothing to do with legalized marijuana. Colorado State University entomologist Whitney Cranshaw says that's left growers to experiment with little oversight."

And with some growrooms worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, most growers are choosing to protect their crop (and cash) from bugs over worrying about the potential effects of the chemicals in pesticides and mildew treatments.

"In the absence of any direction the subject of pesticide use on the crop has just devolved to just whatever people think is working or they think is appropriate," Cranshaw told NPR.

The US Is Deporting Hundreds Of Thousands For Drug Offenses, Many Minor

Category: News | Posted on Tue, June, 16th 2015 by THCFinder

no drug wat

The US government wants to throw Marsha Austin out of the country. The 67-year-old grandmother came from Jamaica to New York as a lawful resident in 1985, and has lived here ever since with her husband, seven children (two more are in Jamaica), grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. All are legal residents or US citizens.

By her own admission, she had problems with drugs. “I live in a drug-infested area,” she said of her neighborhood in the Bronx, and she succumbed to the lure of crack cocaine in the wake of her mother’s death. Jones racked up several minor convictions before getting popped for making a $5 purchase for an undercover officer in 1995.

That was “attempted criminal sale of a controlled substance in the third degree,” to which she pleaded guilty on her public defender’s advice. The attorney failed to tell her the conviction could lead to deportation.

Her convictions led to little or no jail time, but in 2010, as her husband’s health faltered, she violated probation by drinking alcohol. She did 90 days in jail, but instead of walking out, she was seized by immigration authorities at the end of her sentence and spent the next 2 ½ years in immigration jail awaiting deportation.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) repeatedly opposed her release, claiming she was under mandatory detention for her drug offenses, but then released her unexpectedly in 2013. She’s been in treatment since then and now proudly reports that she’s been “clean as a whistle” for the past five years. Now, her husband’s health is failing, as is the health of her daughter, who suffered a breakdown after her own daughter suffered a serious illness.

Cops Eat Pot Brownies, Make Fun of Disabled Patient During Santa Ana Raid

Category: News | Posted on Mon, June, 15th 2015 by THCFinder

Last month, a gang of masked police officers from Santa Ana, California stormed into a neighborhood medical marijuana dispensary. Then, after disconnecting the video surveillance system positioned throughout the dispensary, officers unleashed a disgusting fury against the business, even suggesting violence against a disabled patient—all under the assumption that there would be novideo evidence of their behavior. 

However, the cops overlooked a single camera—a proverbial nail in their coffin—which appears to reveal police officers consuming marijuana edibles and making jokes about kicking an amputee in her “nub.” The video, which was obtained by OC Weekly, even shows officers playing darts behind the counter of the dispensary during the raid.

Once the cops believe they have successfully managed to disabled all of the security cameras, they gather around the main display counter, laughing, perhaps even daring each other to sample the goods. Then, the footage shows one of the officers shoving what appears to be a pot edible into his mouth before handing something else to a cohort who asks, “What flavor?”

The video hits disturbing heights, however, when a female officer begins to tell her colleagues about how she wanted to kick medical marijuana activist and patient Marla James, an amputee confined to a wheelchair, in her “fucking nub.”

America now has a marijuana resort

Category: News | Posted on Sun, June, 14th 2015 by THCFinder

(NEWSER) – While $420 seems like a more appropriate price, starting at $395 per person per night, marijuana smokers can treat themselves to a cannabis-filled Colorado vacation. Dubbed "CannaCamp," the 170-acre resort in Durango does not hand out pot nor sell it on site but Time reports that its concierge will direct vacationers to area dispensaries; travelers can also bring their own. From there, guests can "experience the outdoors and cannabis in a safe, comfortable, and social environment," per the resort's site. That marijuana-filled environment doesn't include the cabins, though, which are smoke-free for safety reasons (porch smoking is allowed, notes the AP).

But pot permeates the rest of CannaCamp: There's a THC Fusion Cooking class, 4:20 Community Hour ("our version of Happy Hour"), cannabis yoga, cannabis-infused massages, cannabis pairing dinners ... and so on. And then there are the outdoors. AsMashable explains, most state and national parks prohibit toking, which makes CannaCamp's pot-friendly trails unusual. "We're bringing an element of luxury to that adventurous, exploratory vibe of childhood summer camp," is how Joel Schneider, CEO of the group behind the resort, frames it. CannaCamp opens July 1; reservations are being accepted now. (The world we live in now also includes marijuana K-cups.)
