Don Koshmider’s Court Victory Against Prosecutor Mike Rola Indicative of Other Cases in Michigan

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 22nd 2016 by THCFinder

CADILLAC- All charges against Don Koshmider were dismissed.

That’s the short version of the story. The long version involves raids, prosecutors, politically-charged motives and actions by law enforcement that are not supported by the communities they claim to protect.

“I feel fantastic!” Don told me, in an exclusive TCC interview.

“As Don’s attorney I can say we were prepared at the preliminary exam to present a defense to the charges,” said criminal defense attorney Josh Covert, who represented Koshmider in court. “The prosecution was not prepared to hold the hearing and really had no choice but to dismiss the charges for now.”

Koshmider has been an active figure in Michigan’s marijuana movement for several years. He was vocal and visible in Gaylord during the multiple protests held there to oppose a series of raids on medical marijuana distribution centers. Koshmider helped with the petition drive to enact an ordinance in that community to authorize the Centers.

‘Voluntary’ Drug Testing Comes to New Jersey School District

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 22nd 2016 by THCFinder

From New Jersey comes the unwelcome news that the Lacey Township Board of Education has voted to approve a program of “voluntary” random drug-testing for middle school students.

“I’m a supporter for any intervention to give another reason for kids to say ‘no’ and that can start at any age, especially with our young teens,” district superintendent Craig Wigley told NJ Advance Media after the Aug. 15 vote. Seventh and eighth graders who participate in athletic programs or extracurricular programs will be given the “option” to participate in the testing program, with parental consent.

The DEA has just been ‘toying with us’ on legalizing marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sun, August, 21st 2016 by THCFinder

Last week, the DEA decided not to reschedule the classification of marijuana as a legal drug. According to federal drug codes, cannabis is still as deadly and addictive as heroin, with no known medical value. I was surprised to see how many articles were written about this decision without mentioning the obvious: This was going to happen. The DEA was just toying with us.

 

There were petitions that received enough signatures and then some senators wrote the DEA a letter, so the DEA had to give the matter "serious consideration." But as long as the DEA is in charge of both writing the law and enforcing it, they're going to keep things status quo, no matter what American taxpayers actually want.

High June in Colorado — Retail Cannabis Sales Get Silver Medal

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 20th 2016 by THCFinder

Boulder, Colorado — June this year gave us National Doughnut Day, International Picnic Day, Father’s Day, the Summer Solstice and plenty more. But in Colorado, it presented yet something else worth celebrating — the second busiest month of cannabis sales since the state legalized recreational cannabis.

“The June numbers reflect the profound and sustained boom going on in the cannabis industry in Colorado,” said BDS Analytics founder and CEO Roy Bingham. “Month after month our data reveals heightened retail sales.”

June was awfully kind to Colorado cannabis in 2016, clocking $112 million in dispensary sales,

a 31-percent increase over June 2015. The adult-use channel drove the growth, rising 47 percent to $74 million. Medical outlets grew 8 percent to $38 million, but all of that dollar growth came from a 9-percent average selling price increase as sales of individual units in medical declined 0.5 percent.

Santa Fe Cops Still Busting Marijuana Users Despite Decriminalization

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 20th 2016 by THCFinder

It has been two years since the city of Santa Fe moved to eliminate the criminal penalties associated with the possession of marijuana by passing an ordinance that forces law enforcement to issue tickets to those people caught holding a little weed. However, recent reports indicate that in spite of the policy change, local cops are still arresting people for this petty infraction and jamming them up in the criminal justice system.

It seems that although the city’s governmental forces have all agreed that busting tokers is a waste of time and valuable resources, the Santa Fe Police Department has been running a clever little racket in which officers are leaning on state law when it comes to how they handles incidents involving petty marijuana offenses.

El Chapo’s Son Abducted by Cartel Rivals

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

The Mexican state of Jalisco is bracing for a feared explosion of violencie after the son of the country’s top drug lord was kidnapped by rivals. Jesús Alfredo Guzmán Salazar was seized by gunmen along with some 10 of his minions as they dined at an upscale restaurant in the resort town of Puerta Vallarta on Aug. 15. Guzmán Salazar is the son of Joaquín “Chapo” Guzmán, imprisoned kingpin of the Sinaloa Cartel. Jalisco authorities believe the kidnapping was perpetrated by the state’s reigning criminal machine, Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG), which has been resisting an incursion by the Sinaloa competition.

Jesús Alfredo was charged in a US court in 2009 with drug trafficking, and has been the public face of the Sinaloa Cartel on social media since his dad’s imprisonment.
