Ohio Marijuana Campaign’s Voter Registrations Are Being Questioned

Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 19th 2015 by THCFinder

ohio marijuanaThe ResponsibleOhio campaign seeks to legalize marijuana for adults in Ohio. The campaign has received a lot of criticism because it only allows ten entities to grow marijuana for profit if the initiative passes. The initiative didn’t have a home grow provision at first, but a provision was added to allow home grow after the campaign received a lot of feedback. I know that a lot of orgs and prominent activists have came out publicly opposing the initiative, while others have refrained from opposing it, but haven’t issued an endorsement yet. To be fair, I haven’t seen any organization or prominent activist that has opposed the measure step up and promise to bring a better initiative in the future, complete with language polling and sufficient funding.

I will be the first to admit that the initiative is far from perfect. There are certainly provisions that I don’t like. However, I don’t like every provision of prohibition, and I have always said that I will support any effort that moves us away from prohibition. I will obviously continue to push for better legalization models, but I don’t think that just because an initiative isn’t perfect that it should be instantly condemned until a perfect one comes along in the future, if at all.

The Ohio campaign experienced a setback this week when the Ohio Secretary of State told election officials to heavily scrutinize voter registrations that were gathered by a company the campaign hired. Per Marijuana Business Daily:

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.
