Blacks 13 Times More Likely to Get Arrested for Weed in New York

Category: News | Posted on Sun, November, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

New data obtained from public records requests by marijuana.com found large racial disparities in marijuana arrests, even as law enforcement priorities shift. The numbers echo previous findings that decriminalization (and even legalization) do little to combat racial disparities when enforcing cannabis laws. 

Out of the 25 states where data was collected, New York had the largest racial disparity. Black New Yorkers are 13 times more likely than whites to be arrested for possession.

“The bulk of arrests in New York State occur in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Manhattan boroughs that make up New York City,” reported marijuana.com.

Attorneys Argue Pot's Schedule I Listing Is a Civil Rights Violation

Category: News | Posted on Sat, November, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

A federal judge in New York was recently put in the position to decide whether marijuana’s Schedule I classification under the Controlled Substances Act was a civil rights violation.

However, the defendant charged in the case ended up accepting a two-year prison term before the court ever had a chance to comment.

According to the Bradford Era, the public defenders appointed to drag 58-year-old Randy Wade Kenyon out of the mud after he was caught in possession of more than 800 cannabis plants, filed a motion with the court that asserted the DEA’s Schedule I listing for marijuana violated Kenyon’s civil rights.

San Jose Passes Ban on Sale of Recreational Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Fri, November, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

A ban on the sale of marijuana passed in San Jose, California on Tuesday. The actions come as election-day voting on Proposition 64 approaches.

The city’s urgency ordinance “would prohibit commercial use of non-medical marijuana in the city, including commercial cultivating processing, manufacturing, distributing, testing and selling of recreational weed,” according to the Mercury News.

San Jose is only the latest in a run of California cities quickly passing restrictive marijuana laws. Bans are also in place in Berkeley, Palo Alto, Campbell, Foster City, Hayward, Davis, Martinez and more.

Washington D.C. Council Votes to Allow Medical Marijuana Reciprocity

Category: News | Posted on Fri, November, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

The D.C. Council has approved a measure that would allow medical marijuana users from other jurisdictions to use their out-of-state registration cards to buy medical cannabis in the District.

The bill, which received unanimous support from the D.C. Council on Tuesday, will make it easier for patients visiting the nation’s capital to get the medicine they need.

“Reciprocity can actually help reduce transfer of marijuana across state lines as patients are not forced to bring medical marijuana obtained in their home states with them when they travel,” said Kaitlyn Boecker, policy coordinator with the Drug Policy Alliance in Washington D.C.

Growing Worries: Humboldt Cannabis Farmers Divided on Proposition 64

Category: News | Posted on Thu, November, 3rd 2016 by THCFinder

Even after one of the rainiest Octobers on record drenched the small cannabis farms of the Emerald Triangle, many of the growers in the region fear the results of California’s Proposition 64 even more than they fear the effects of the downpour on their buds. While farmers begin the cure of this year’s harvest and snip away leaves at trimming tables, the discussion inevitably moves to whether this proposition is the right way to legalize the recreational use of marijuana.

Growers are almost as bitterly split about Prop. 64 as the country is on the vote for president. Families quarrel and friendships become strained as the small farmers choose whether to vote yes or no.
