Major Victory as Feds Drop Forfeiture Suit Against Harborside Health Center

Category: News | Posted on Tue, May, 3rd 2016 by THCFinder

Federal prosecutors are finally dropping their attempt to seize property from the trailblazing Harborside Health Center in Oakland, California, the dispensary and a city official announced Tuesday.

The saga began in 2012, when former U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag served Harborside with a lawsuit and civil forfeiture notices. Now, the epic dispute with the Department of Justice has finally come to an end. 

“As of today, Harborside Health Center is in the clear and will no longer have to worry about a looming raid,” a press release from Oakland City Councilmember At-Large Rebecca Kaplan said.

‘Sports Cannabis’ Shines At ArcView Event In Portland, Oregon

(Cliff Robinson does an interview for Fox at the ArcView Portland event)

I have been waiting for many weeks for today to get here, ever since I heard that there would be an ArcView Group event in Portland. I got especially excited when I heard that there would be a big sports cannabis presence at the event. ArcView has never put on an event in Oregon (my home state) and since they are the premier investment organization in the cannabis space, I think it’s safe to say that an event here is overdue. Oregon is home to the best cannabis community on the planet in my opinion, and I’ve traveled to quite a few places and consumed more than my fair share of cannabis.

If you read this blog frequently, then you know that I’m very excited about the sports cannabis movement. There has long been a perception that cannabis and an active lifestyle don’t mix, and that all cannabis consumers are lazy. That’s obviously not the case. Some of the most athletic humans in history have been avid cannabis consumers. And for every elite athlete, there’s a small army of amateur athletes like myself (using the term athlete loosely, although I’ll hoop you up, don’t sleep on me!). There are a lot of active people that consume cannabis for various reasons, and find that it enhances their active lifestyles.

Mother’s Day Marijuana Billboards Launched In Phoenix And Tucson

Category: News | Posted on Mon, May, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

regulate marijuana like alcohol arizona 2016Backers of an initiative to end marijuana prohibition in Arizona launched a pair of Mother’s Day-themed billboards in Phoenix and Tucson on Monday. An image of the billboard is attached, and a high-resolution version is available at http://bit.ly/1N3OkrX.

Leaders of the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol will hold media availabilities at 11 a.m. in front of the billboard in Phoenix (1925 E. Indian School Rd.) and at 2 p.m. in front of the billboard in Tucson (3640 S. 6th Ave.).

The ads, which are targeted at younger voters, feature a young woman sitting with her mother and ask: “Have you talked to your parents about marijuana?” The goal of the ads is to flip the script on marijuana education and encourage younger voters to start conversations about marijuana with their family members — especially older generations who have been led to believe marijuana is more harmful than it actually is. The billboards direct viewers to a website — http://TalkItUpArizona.org — that allows them to send a message about marijuana to their parents or other relatives. The billboards will run through Sunday, which is Mother’s Day.

“For decades, the federal government distributed anti-marijuana propaganda to parents and encouraged them to share it with their children,” said CRMLA Chairman J.P. Holyoak. “It’s time for younger folks to start sharing the facts about marijuana with their parents and other older relatives.

Runnin’ Republican Shuts Down State Canvassers Meeting By Fleeing

Category: News | Posted on Sat, April, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

Why did a member of the Michigan Board of State Canvassers bolt from the room and halt the discussions regarding a policy change being advocated for by a marijuana legalization organization?

Was it a floral emergency?

Norm Shinkle has faced his share of tough votes on the Board, including delivering decisions on petitions that would expand the number of casinos in Michigan, require a vote of the people before raising taxes, decide the fate of an international bridge and Michigan’s broken Emergency Manager program.

On April 25, the four-member Board was convened to roll out a proposal created by Board staff which would allow an easier method for validating signatures collected on initiative petitions that are older than 180 days; the current policy dates back to the 1980’s and desperately needs to be updated. Asking for the update is the MILegalize group and anti-fracking organizations who have already been collecting signatures on petitions.

Colorado Pot Profiteers Draft Bill to Hijack the Industry

Category: News | Posted on Fri, April, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

The draft of a bill to be introduced in the Colorado Senate next week proposes such momentous changes to the marijuana industry that it has prompted suspicion that industry players are writing policy to line their pockets. 

The bill, which appears to be a sweeping and controversial overhaul, seeks to change licensing procedures and ease pesticide restrictions. It was drafted by Republican Colorado State Senator Randy Baumgardner, in tandem with the Colorado Cannabis Chamber of Commerce and the trade organization Marijuana Industry Group. The changes could put regulation and licensing Colorado’s marijuana industry in the hands of a few potentially high-profile, pro-big business individuals, and take the regulatory process away from the state’s larger enforcement division.

Chicago Narcs Busted Lying Through Their Teeth In Marijuana Case

Category: News | Posted on Thu, April, 28th 2016 by THCFinder

cops law enforcement special needs students entrapmentBy Clarence Walker

It was just another marijuana bust by Chicago’s crack dope squad and should have resulted in an easy conviction, but thanks to a forgotten camera, things didn’t exactly work out the way the cops planned. Now, the pot dealer is free, he has a bunch of cash in pocket, and it’s the cops who are facing justice.

It went down on June 6, 2013, when three Chicago Police narcotics officer and a pair of suburban Glenview police officers pulled over Joseph Sperling on the pretext that he had failed to properly use his turn signal, then claimed Sperling told them there were drugs in his vehicle. The cops said they found marijuana in plain view and arrested Sperling on marijuana possession and distribution charges. Business as usual, so far.

But when it came time to go to court the following March, things went south for the cops. Prosecutors had been questioning Chicago PD narcotics officer William Pruente, who said in sworn testimony that when police pulled over Sperling they immediately smelled marijuana and ordered him to exit the vehicle and stand at the rear of the car.

Then, defense attorney Steven Goldman asked the veteran narc if Sperling was handcuffed after he got out of the car.
