Brit Jailed In Dubai For 4 Years For Speck Of Marijuana On Shoe

Category: News | Posted on Fri, February, 10th 2012 by THCFinder

WTF is wrong with these government idiots? How can you justify sending someone to jail for 4 years over a microscopic piece of weed they found on the bottom of this guys shoe? What if he happened to walk across someones spilt weed, how can any goverment send someone away for 4 years based on something so insignificant?

A father-of-three who was found with a microscopic speck of cannabis stuck to the bottom of one of his shoes has been sentenced to four years in a Dubai prison.
 
Keith Brown, a council youth development officer, was travelling through the United Arab Emirates on his way back to England when he was stopped as he walked through Dubai’s main airport.
 
A search by customs officials uncovered a speck of cannabis weighing just 0.003g – so small it would be invisible to the naked eye and weighing less than a grain of sugar – on the tread of one of his shoes.
 
Dubai International Airport is a major hub for the Middle East and thousands of Britons pass through it every year to holiday in the glamorous beach and shopping haven.
 
But many of those tourists and business travellers are likely to be unaware of the strict zero-tolerance drugs policy in the UAE.
 
One man has even been jailed for possession of three poppy seeds left over from a bread roll he ate at Heathrow Airport. Painkiller codeine is also banned.
 
If suspicious of a traveller, customs officials can use high-tech equipment to uncover even the slightest trace of drugs.
 
Mr Brown was detained and arrested in September last year and has been held in a cell with three other men in the city prison ever since.
 
This week the youth worker, who has two young children and a partner at home in Smethwick, West Midlands, was sentenced to four years in prison.

NYPD Marijuana Crusade Is Going Too Far

Category: News | Posted on Thu, February, 9th 2012 by THCFinder

Here is a great expample of why Marijuana should be legalized, why should an 18 year old teen be killed becuase cops thought he had weed on him. Was it really worth their time to track this kid down then kill him over a plant? I think the answer is clear and obvious to anyone who reads this story.

 

An 18-year-old teenager, Ramarley Graham, was killed in his home in the Bronx last week by plainclothes cops. A member of the narcotics unit shot the unarmed teenager in his bathroom. 

 

While details of the tragedy are still unfolding, it appears that the teen had a small amount of marijuana on him, so walked home to get away from the cops because he didn't want to be arrested. The cops followed him, broke into his home and killed him in his bathroom while he was trying to flush a small amount of marijuana down the toilet. The police officer who shot Graham said he believed the young man had a gun. He did not -- no weapons were found.
 
 
The bottom line is that an 18-year-old is dead because of the insane marijuana arrest crusade by the NYPD.

Man jailed in Japan for Cheeba Chews, reportedly to be released

Category: News | Posted on Thu, February, 9th 2012 by THCFinder

Lucky for him he avoided being sent to Jail for up to 10 years in Japan!

‚ÄčTim Wilson, a 25-year-old Colorado man arrested last year after Japanese authorities say he conspired to have marijuana candies sent to the weed-intolerant island nation will finally be coming home, according to 9News.
The station quotes Wilson's family as saying he received a "suspended sentence" and should be back on American soil soon.
 
We brought you Wilson's story last November. The honors student was studying abroad and helping out with earthquake relief efforts when a friend sent him a care package containing Cheeba Chews, a popular, THC-laced treats. Wilson never received the package, but still faced up to ten years in Japanese prison, as officials said he requested that his friend send him the edibles.
 
The Japanese courts pointed to an e-mail between Wilson and his friend in which Wilson jokingly said it "would be a good idea" to send marijuana oversees. Wilson adamantly insisted that the joke was lost in translation and that he had never actually requested the candies be sent to him. He contends that he had no way of knowing his friend would be such a fucking moron do such a blatantly illegal thing.
 
No word on exactly when Wilson -- a card-carrying medical marijuana patient -- will be back in Colorado. We'll try and catch up with him when he does. But in the meantime, I hope Wilson's friend has a nice big apology bowl waiting for him.

Medical marijuana card not a license to smoke on probation, court rules

Category: News | Posted on Tue, February, 7th 2012 by THCFinder

At what point shoudl anyone be able to tell you if you can or cannot take your medication for your ailments? How is this ethical at all? Is the Judge also a doctor who is licensed to tell you weather or not you are able to go off your medication? Anyone else here see something wrong about this, I don't recall a Judge ever telling anyoen they couldn't take their Tylenol...

 

The Colorado Court of Appeals has weighed in on the question of whether a medical marijuana patient can smoke while completing a probationary sentence that specifically nixes drug use. The judges' answer in a decision on view below? A resounding "no" justified in part by references to the case of Jason Beinor, a medical marijuana patient who was fired from his job as a street sweeper after failing a random drug test.
 
The man at the center of the latest controversy is Leonard Charles Watkins. At the time of a 2010 package by 9News, Watkins was reportedly on probation in Arapahoe County following a 2005 conviction involving sexual assault on a child. Nonetheless, a judge had sanctioned his use of MMJ, much to the chagrin of 18th Judicial District DA Carol Chambers. In an e-mail statement to 9News, Chambers wrote, "Does anyone think it's a good idea to allow a convicted sex offender to get high? People on probation have admitted to violating the law. There are different public safety concerns and different laws that apply to them than apply to the rest of the community."
 
Chambers's office subsequently appealed the decision allowing cannabis medication. Hence, the current case, in which Watkins argued that Amendment 20, which legalized medical marijuana in Colorado, "is paramount and necessarily prevails" over probation rules that forbid him from using or possessing "any narcotic, dangerous or abusable substance without a prescription."

Police say toilet plunger used as marijuana pipe

Category: News | Posted on Tue, February, 7th 2012 by THCFinder

Busted for smelling like Marijuana? Sounds like the same old exucsse the cops try to use all the time now to pull a bullshit search on a vehicle.

KINGFISHER, Okla. -- Authorities in Kingfisher County made an interesting drug bust after pulling over a truck with a broken tail light. Police believe the driver was making a drug run that started in California but never made it through Kingfisher.
 
"I got enough that he's going to go away for a long time," a deputy said.
 
There were enough drugs and paraphernalia to fill an evidence room. We can't show the face of the undercover agent, but we can show you what he found, jars even buckets full of marijuana police say they seized when making the traffic stop.
 
"He was just acting a little bit funny, and my partner said he smelled burnt marijuana in the vehicle, and I told him I smelled green marijuana coming from the vehicle," Kingfisher County Deputy Eric Richardson said. "He said that he did have marijuana in the floor board."
 
Investigators say they found marijuana and empty beer cans inside the truck, and once their dog alerted to the trailer behind it, they found several mason jars and baby jars full of marijuana as well as a marijuana pipe that was made out of a toilet plunger."

Pro-marijuana Montana legislator investigated by DEA

Category: News | Posted on Mon, February, 6th 2012 by THCFinder
In a case that has implications for Colorado and other medical marijuana states, Montana legislator Diane Sands has come under investigation by the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, but she doesn’t know why. She suspects the investigation is related to her advocacy of liberalized marijuana laws.
 
She told the Colorado Independent that she has no involvement in medical marijuana beyond her work in the legislature. The Missoula Democrat, though, has been very outspoken in the legislature, advocating for liberalized medical marijuana laws and also advocating for the federal de-listing of marijuana, so that it becomes an issue that can be decided by individual states.
 
“Because of the federal supremacy clause, federal law always trumps state law,” she says. “We fought a civil war over this. There is nothing a state can do to make marijuana legal, or even to make medical marijuana legal, but there is a process to change that at the federal level. Now that so many states have made medical marijuana legal, the federal government should remove marijuana from Schedule One of the Controlled Substances Act, and let the states regulate marijuana as they see fit,” she says.
 
“I don’t believe I should be investigated by the DEA for saying that. Any suggestion that the federal government is investigating me is very chilling. I’m an historian, so yes, I connect present activities to past activities, such as the Sedition Act of 1918 and the McCarthy hearings. When you have government officials investigating lawmakers because of how they pursue their official duties, you have a problem,” she contends.
 
“It is outrageous and absurd that the DEA would investigate a state lawmaker for doing her job: crafting state laws. When he ran for president, Barack Obama said he would not circumvent state medical marijuana laws. The president needs to keep his word and order the Justice Department to back off, and to focus on real crime instead of targeting medical marijuana providers and interfering with states’ democratic processes,” said Karen O’Keefe, director of state policies for the Marijuana Policy Project. “This could have a chilling effect on lawmakers who want to be involved in regulating medical marijuana in any state.”
 
“This is part of the continuing witch-hunt in Montana,” said Jim Gingery, executive director of the Montana Medical Growers Association. “They have already successfully intimidated law-abiding
businesspeople, and now they are attempting to intimidate any politician who is opposed to full prohibition. This is just the tip of the iceberg,” Gingery said. “They will try to discredit anyone involved in medical marijuana in Montana.”
 
Sands said her name came up when a DEA agent asked a witness whether Sands was involved in a drug conspiracy case under investigation. That person’s attorney told Sands that her name had come up.
