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

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.

Cops Raid Weed-Friendly Jersey Eatery and Church

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

Two marijuana-friendly establishments in Trenton, New Jersey — one an eatery and one a religious organization — were raided by local authorities yesterday. The pro-weed restaurant NJ Weedman’s Joint, run by legalization activist Ed “Weedman” Forchion, and the weed-worshipping organization The Liberty Bell Temple 3 both received visits from the County Narcotics Task Force yesterday. The Trenton Police Department cooperated in the operation that resulted in several arrests, though only two of the nine arrestees were held on drug charges.

Forchion is being charged with multiple counts including 10 charges of marijuana possession and distribution, along with distribution of drug paraphernalia, maintaining booby traps in a distribution facility, and a narcotics nuisance charge.

Denver Freezes Weed Industry at Current Size

Category: News | Posted on Wed, April, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

The "booming" marijuana industry in Denver, Colorado will remain frozen at its current size. 

On Monday, the Denver City Council approved a hotly-debated bill to ban new marijuana shops and grows, leaving a lock on the current number of stores. Applicants can apply to establish new marijuana businesses when the number of operations drops below the current cap, but the distribution of marijuana businesses will play a role in determining where they can operate.

Oklahoma and Nebraska Are Still Trying to Shut Down the Colorado Cannabis Industry

Category: News | Posted on Tue, April, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

Although the U.S. Supreme Court recently rejected a lawsuit brought forth by Oklahoma and Nebraska demanding the immediate shutdown of the Colorado cannabis industry, a new report indicates the two prohibition states have not stopped devising war tactics to sabotage legal weed.

According to the Denver Post, Oklahoma and Nebraska have taken a clever approach to dismantling the marijuana industry in Colorado by petitioning the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to have their complaint integrated with a couple of other pot-related cases in an effort to bring down the hammer against recreational pot sales in a collective argument.

White House sits down with marijuana law reformers today

Category: News | Posted on Mon, April, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

Just a few weeks after staging a huge smoke-in at the White House gates, cannabis law reform advocates are getting a meeting with the Obama Administration today.

DC Marijuana Justice (DCMJ) co-founders Adam Eidinger and Nikolas Schiller, who led Washington D.C.’s successful marijuana legalization initiative in 2014, are scheduled to meet with an unnamed policy advisor this morning in the White House, according to DCMJ releases.

The goal: discuss why cannabis does not deserve to be federally designated as among the most dangerous substances on the planet.

That designation has increasingly come under fire by lawmakers, researchers, doctors and the public. About 61 percent of Americans support legalizing marijuana.
