Ryan Bailey, Medical Marijuana Grower, Sentenced To 6 Years In Prison

Category: News | Posted on Mon, February, 13th 2012 by THCFinder

Sentencing an individual to 6 years in prison which will most definetely be a life changing experience seems extremely harsh for someone who was simply growing plants. Yes those plant might be illegal but the majority of people across this planet can see that those reasons are not valid and have no true backing to their claims. How can we send away someone for 6 years for growing mairjuana when rapists, robbers, and even murders get off with shorter sentences? Are we telling the public you are better off robbing a bank than growing a plant?

A medical marijuana grower who was caught with dozens of pounds of weed in Chicago was sentenced to six years in prison Friday.
 
Ryan Bailey, 29, was a mortgage broker in Chicago before he moved to Colorado to get into the medical marijuana business, CBS Chicago reports.
 
Bailey was allegedly holding a package of marijuana on March 9, 2010, when Chicago police raided a Northwest Side home. The drugs had been shipped to the city, but he was only charged with possession. About a year later, he was busted again -- this time in Colorado.
 
Though medical marijuana is legal in Colorado and his wife operates a medical marijuana dispensary, he allegedly was caught growing more than 600 plants. Colorado's medical marijuana law states that a patient can grow six plants a month for personal use, and "caregivers" can grow more -- but not that much more, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
 
Before he was sentenced by Cook County Judge Lawrence Flood, prosecutors called Bailey the ringleader of a drug opearion that shipped 42 pounds of marijuana to a Chicago home, CBS reports. Judge Flood then handed down the six-year sentence. He is still awaiting trial on felony charges in Colorado.
 
“Some people in the industry have gotten lucky,” Bailey told the Sun-Times. “Other guys like me have gotten caught in the system.”

Brit Jailed In Dubai For 4 Years For Speck Of Marijuana On Shoe

Category: News | Posted on Fri, February, 10th 2012 by THCFinder

WTF is wrong with these government idiots? How can you justify sending someone to jail for 4 years over a microscopic piece of weed they found on the bottom of this guys shoe? What if he happened to walk across someones spilt weed, how can any goverment send someone away for 4 years based on something so insignificant?

A father-of-three who was found with a microscopic speck of cannabis stuck to the bottom of one of his shoes has been sentenced to four years in a Dubai prison.
 
Keith Brown, a council youth development officer, was travelling through the United Arab Emirates on his way back to England when he was stopped as he walked through Dubai’s main airport.
 
A search by customs officials uncovered a speck of cannabis weighing just 0.003g – so small it would be invisible to the naked eye and weighing less than a grain of sugar – on the tread of one of his shoes.
 
Dubai International Airport is a major hub for the Middle East and thousands of Britons pass through it every year to holiday in the glamorous beach and shopping haven.
 
But many of those tourists and business travellers are likely to be unaware of the strict zero-tolerance drugs policy in the UAE.
 
One man has even been jailed for possession of three poppy seeds left over from a bread roll he ate at Heathrow Airport. Painkiller codeine is also banned.
 
If suspicious of a traveller, customs officials can use high-tech equipment to uncover even the slightest trace of drugs.
 
Mr Brown was detained and arrested in September last year and has been held in a cell with three other men in the city prison ever since.
 
This week the youth worker, who has two young children and a partner at home in Smethwick, West Midlands, was sentenced to four years in prison.

NYPD Marijuana Crusade Is Going Too Far

Category: News | Posted on Thu, February, 9th 2012 by THCFinder

Here is a great expample of why Marijuana should be legalized, why should an 18 year old teen be killed becuase cops thought he had weed on him. Was it really worth their time to track this kid down then kill him over a plant? I think the answer is clear and obvious to anyone who reads this story.

 

An 18-year-old teenager, Ramarley Graham, was killed in his home in the Bronx last week by plainclothes cops. A member of the narcotics unit shot the unarmed teenager in his bathroom. 

 

While details of the tragedy are still unfolding, it appears that the teen had a small amount of marijuana on him, so walked home to get away from the cops because he didn't want to be arrested. The cops followed him, broke into his home and killed him in his bathroom while he was trying to flush a small amount of marijuana down the toilet. The police officer who shot Graham said he believed the young man had a gun. He did not -- no weapons were found.
 
 
The bottom line is that an 18-year-old is dead because of the insane marijuana arrest crusade by the NYPD.

Man jailed in Japan for Cheeba Chews, reportedly to be released

Category: News | Posted on Thu, February, 9th 2012 by THCFinder

Lucky for him he avoided being sent to Jail for up to 10 years in Japan!

‚ÄčTim Wilson, a 25-year-old Colorado man arrested last year after Japanese authorities say he conspired to have marijuana candies sent to the weed-intolerant island nation will finally be coming home, according to 9News.
The station quotes Wilson's family as saying he received a "suspended sentence" and should be back on American soil soon.
 
We brought you Wilson's story last November. The honors student was studying abroad and helping out with earthquake relief efforts when a friend sent him a care package containing Cheeba Chews, a popular, THC-laced treats. Wilson never received the package, but still faced up to ten years in Japanese prison, as officials said he requested that his friend send him the edibles.
 
The Japanese courts pointed to an e-mail between Wilson and his friend in which Wilson jokingly said it "would be a good idea" to send marijuana oversees. Wilson adamantly insisted that the joke was lost in translation and that he had never actually requested the candies be sent to him. He contends that he had no way of knowing his friend would be such a fucking moron do such a blatantly illegal thing.
 
No word on exactly when Wilson -- a card-carrying medical marijuana patient -- will be back in Colorado. We'll try and catch up with him when he does. But in the meantime, I hope Wilson's friend has a nice big apology bowl waiting for him.

Medical marijuana card not a license to smoke on probation, court rules

Category: News | Posted on Tue, February, 7th 2012 by THCFinder

At what point shoudl anyone be able to tell you if you can or cannot take your medication for your ailments? How is this ethical at all? Is the Judge also a doctor who is licensed to tell you weather or not you are able to go off your medication? Anyone else here see something wrong about this, I don't recall a Judge ever telling anyoen they couldn't take their Tylenol...

 

The Colorado Court of Appeals has weighed in on the question of whether a medical marijuana patient can smoke while completing a probationary sentence that specifically nixes drug use. The judges' answer in a decision on view below? A resounding "no" justified in part by references to the case of Jason Beinor, a medical marijuana patient who was fired from his job as a street sweeper after failing a random drug test.
 
The man at the center of the latest controversy is Leonard Charles Watkins. At the time of a 2010 package by 9News, Watkins was reportedly on probation in Arapahoe County following a 2005 conviction involving sexual assault on a child. Nonetheless, a judge had sanctioned his use of MMJ, much to the chagrin of 18th Judicial District DA Carol Chambers. In an e-mail statement to 9News, Chambers wrote, "Does anyone think it's a good idea to allow a convicted sex offender to get high? People on probation have admitted to violating the law. There are different public safety concerns and different laws that apply to them than apply to the rest of the community."
 
Chambers's office subsequently appealed the decision allowing cannabis medication. Hence, the current case, in which Watkins argued that Amendment 20, which legalized medical marijuana in Colorado, "is paramount and necessarily prevails" over probation rules that forbid him from using or possessing "any narcotic, dangerous or abusable substance without a prescription."

Police say toilet plunger used as marijuana pipe

Category: News | Posted on Tue, February, 7th 2012 by THCFinder

Busted for smelling like Marijuana? Sounds like the same old exucsse the cops try to use all the time now to pull a bullshit search on a vehicle.

KINGFISHER, Okla. -- Authorities in Kingfisher County made an interesting drug bust after pulling over a truck with a broken tail light. Police believe the driver was making a drug run that started in California but never made it through Kingfisher.
 
"I got enough that he's going to go away for a long time," a deputy said.
 
There were enough drugs and paraphernalia to fill an evidence room. We can't show the face of the undercover agent, but we can show you what he found, jars even buckets full of marijuana police say they seized when making the traffic stop.
 
"He was just acting a little bit funny, and my partner said he smelled burnt marijuana in the vehicle, and I told him I smelled green marijuana coming from the vehicle," Kingfisher County Deputy Eric Richardson said. "He said that he did have marijuana in the floor board."
 
Investigators say they found marijuana and empty beer cans inside the truck, and once their dog alerted to the trailer behind it, they found several mason jars and baby jars full of marijuana as well as a marijuana pipe that was made out of a toilet plunger."
