Teen Turns In Father On Marijuana Growing Charges
Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 5th 2011 by THCFinder
When you can even trust your own kids, who can you trust?
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - A Murfreesboro father is in trouble after his own son turned him in for growing marijuana.
Police went to the family home after the 15-year-old called to report allegations of physical abuse. When officers arrived the teen handed them a marijuana plant growing in a small flower pot. Inside the home, police found several plants in two illegal grow operations and arrested the father.
"The juvenile went inside and came out with a marijuana plant that was part of a grow operation inside the house," said Kyle Evans with Murfreesboro Police.
In an exclusive interview the teen's father told NewsChannel 5: "I could not believe my son would turn against his father like that."
The father denied physically abusing his son and said the teen and his three siblings were never exposed to the marijuana. The father said he grew the drug to use himself for pain from severe burns he suffered years ago.
Police did not find any evidence of physical child abuse. However, the father does face felony drug charges.
In addition to the marijuana plants and grow lights, Murfreesboro police also confiscated scales and supply of processed marijuana from the home. There's no indication the suspect was growing the marijuana to sell.
Department of Justice Tells AZ Governor Jan Brewer To Dismiss Medical Marijuana Lawsuit
Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 5th 2011 by THCFinder
Arizona governor, Jan Brewer, has been dragging her feet ever since medical marijuana was legalized last year, using a lawsuit against the Department of Justice as an excuse not to authorize the 100 dispensaries that by rights should be up and running in the state. It looks like even the DoJ thinks this is absurd:
A funny thing happened on Monday. The Department of Justice filed a brief regarding state medical marijuana laws in Arizona . . . and it was a good thing, and was met with appreciation from the medical marijuana movement! Seriously. After the disappointments of the vague, not very helpful Cole memo, and the expected but still disappointing DEA denial of marijuana’s medical value, it was great to see the Department of Justice (DoJ) doing the right thing regarding medical marijuana, even if it was only in a limited way.
As you may know, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, last seen promoting states’ rights and vowing to fight on when it comes to illegal immigration, and her Attorney General, Tom Horne, had filed a suit as plaintiffs against the federal government, requesting permission to move ahead with Arizona’s medical marijuana program implementation. This was ridiculous, since no other governor has needed federal permission to move ahead with medical marijuana implementation, even though some others have also tried to use the red herring threat of federal action to slow implementation. Apparently, the DoJ also thinks Brewer’s claims are ridiculous, and it said as much in its withering Motion to Dismiss brief, in which it took apart each of the state of Arizona’s arguments, urging the court to dismiss the case. If the court dismisses the case, Brewer’s logical course of action would be to fully implement Arizona’s medical marijuana law, including licensing more than 100 dispensaries, though given her intransigence, that course of action is sadly not a given.
So will Arizona have medical marijuana soon? If the courts agree with the DoJ, then yes. Whether Brewer and Horne find some other way to drag this out, however, remains to be seen.
Pair held in death of medical marijuana vendor killed in Long Beach

LONG BEACH - A husband and wife have been arrested in the March 24 shooting death in Long Beach of a medical marijuana distributor.
On Tuesday, Marcel Mackabee was charged with one count of murder, and his wife, Rosemary Sayegh, was charged as an accessory in the killing of Philip Victor Williamson, police said.
Police said robbery was the motive for the killing of Williamson, whom they say may have had $500,000 and seven pounds of marijuana at the time of his death.
Police said more arrests were expected.
The couple, both from Granada Hills, were arrested over the weekend. Sayegh, 32, was arrested in Granada Hills while Mackabee, 29, was apprehended in Chico.
Mackabee is being held on $1 million bail and Sayegh on $500,000. Both are scheduled to return to Long Beach Superior Court on Tuesday.
The 29-year-old victim was gunned down in an alley off the 1500 block of Pine Avenue, police said.
Long Beach Police Department homicide detectives learned that the victim, who was from Los Angeles, delivered marijuana grown in Chico to clinics throughout the Los Angeles area.
Long Beach police said detectives believe the murder was orchestrated for the sole purpose of committing a robbery.
Neither the cash nor the marijuana that Williamson may have carried has been recovered.
Williamson was found by police about 10:30 p.m. on March 24 suffering from a gunshot wound to his upper body. He died the next evening from his injuries.
Long Beach officers traveled to Chico several times during their investigation to search for evidence, police said. That led to a tip that the victim was seen with a man in a black Toyota 4Runner around the time of his death.
Security footage from a Beverly Hills convenience store showed a man in a black sweatshirt and black pants making a purchase and leaving in a black Toyota 4Runner on the day Williamson was killed. A receipt from that store was found in the victim's home.
Police now say that man was Mackabee and the receipt was his.
In late July, detectives traveled to Chico and Granada Hills with search warrants and later made the arrests. The investigation is ongoing.
A $10,000 reward offered by the Los Angeles County Supervisor's Office has generated information, but detectives are still asking for the public's help.
One week after police find marijuana growing in Florida mayor's yard she shuts down the whole force
Category: News | Posted on Wed, August, 3rd 2011 by THCFinder
An 84-year-old mayor who was found by a police chief with marijuana plants in her garden has fired the entire department.
City commissioners voted 3-2 Monday night in favour of closing the department.
The controversy came to the forefront earlier this month when Mayor Mary Lee Cook told officials she believed someone from the police force planted marijuana on her property.
The Volusia County Sheriff's Office began handling emergency calls from Oak Hill Monday night.
The mayor called the special meeting, and presented a number of complaints against Police Chief Diane Young.
During the discussion, commissioners decided it would be best to 'terminate the entire department.'
Mayor Mary Lee Cook of Oak Hill, Florida, said that the marijuana plants narcotics agents found growing near a fence in her yard were placed there by someone looking to damage her reputation.
Speaking to Fox News, officer Manny Perez said: 'One of the first things they tell you is this is a thankless job and today that really hits home.'
Two weeks ago, narcotics agents from the sheriff’s department asked to search the mayor’s home, having been informed that she was growing marijuana.
The 84-year-old mayor says that the agents found and seized a few ‘scrawny’ marijuana plants in individual containers.
The sheriff’s office report notes that 10 marijuana plants in total were discovered.
A spokesman from the sheriff’s department says that Mayor Cook has not been charged and that investigators do not believe she was aware of the drugs on her property.
