Colorado Prosecutor Says Legal Marijuana Causes Majority of State’s Murders

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

While many Colorado officials have come forward over the past few months to declare that legal weed is working better than they ever imagined, some prosecutors across the state believe the legal cannabis industry is responsible for the majority of the state’s murders.

In a recent interview with Fox 31 Denver, Arapahoe County District Attorney George Brauchler said nearly two-thirds of the homicide cases he has overseen in recent years have had a blatant connection to marijuana. This uprising in murder, he said, could be traced back to a legion of small time dope dealers who are slinging the herb on the street with rabid enthusiasm because legal weed has made it easier for the black market to thrive.

California Teamsters Oppose Marijuana Initiative

Category: News | Posted on Tue, May, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

While it may sound a bit strange for the nation’s leading labor union to take a stand against any industry that promises to create thousands of new jobs and generate millions of dollars in new revenue, the California Teamsters recently said that the union does not support a ballot initiative aimed at legalizing recreational marijuana because it would cut its members out of the loop.

The Teamsters union, an organization looking out for the interests of truckers and warehouse workers, has donated a significant amount of money to an anti-drug campaign that is trying to prevent marijuana from being legalized in California this November. A recent report from the Intercept shows the Teamsters recently dropped $25,000 into a fund supporting the Coalition for Responsible Drug Policies—the same lobbying effort being financed by law enforcement and prison groups all across the state.

NYPD Police Chief Thinks Legal Pot Causes Violence

Category: News | Posted on Mon, May, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

New York Police Commissioner Bill Bratton was apparently absent the day his high school history teacher explained to the class how the days of alcohol prohibition influenced more than a decade of lawlessness throughout the Land of the Free.

During a recent appearance on AM 970’s “Cat’s Round Table,” Bratton told host John Catsimatidis that marijuana is the reason there has been a surge in violent crime across the five boroughs. “Here in New York,” Bratton explained, “most of the violence we see is involving marijuana, and I have to scratch my head as we are seeing many states wanting to legalize marijuana, and more liberalization of policies.”

Marijuana Trafficking Falls Following Statewide Legalization According To Federal Government

Category: News | Posted on Sun, May, 22nd 2016 by THCFinder

oregon marijuanaBy Paul Armentano, NORML Deputy Director

Federal marijuana trafficking prosecutions have declined significantly since the passage of statewide laws regulating the plant’s production and retail sale to adults, according to data provided by the United States Sentencing Commission.

According to the new report, the number of marijuana trafficking offenders prosecuted at the federal level fell dramatically after 2012 — declining from over 6,000 annually to fewer than 4,000 in 2015.

“The number of marijuana traffickers rose slightly over time until a sharp decline in fiscal year 2013 and the number continues to decrease,” the report concludes.

The period of decline overlaps with the passage and enactment of adult marijuana sales in various US states, including Colorado, Oregon, and Washington.

Federal data also reports a similar decline in cocaine trafficking since 2012. By contrast, federal prosecutions for heroin and methamphetamine trafficking have slowly risen over the better part of the past ten years.

Category: News | Posted on Sun, May, 22nd 2016 by THCFinder

Denver Police issued 18 citations for marijuana consumption Saturday at the rescheduled 420 Rally in Civic Center park, said Doug Schepman, a police spokesperson.

That's significantly less than the 60 citations handed out on April 20, when thousands gathered in Civic Center to celebrate the holiday devoted to smoking marijuana.

While recreational use of marijuana was legalized in Colorado with the passage of Amendment 64 in 2012, consuming in public remains illegal.
