Native American Teen Faces Year in Clink For One Joint in Oregon

Category: News | Posted on Tue, August, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

In an utterly bizarre case reported last week by Oregon’s Willamette Week, the federal government is taking the almost unheard of move of prosecuting an individual for possession of a small amount of cannabis. Making it all the more perverse, this is happening in Oregon, which legalized recreational cannabis by popular vote last year. More perverse still, the targeted individual is a Native American youth—who may face one year in prison for possession of just about enough herb to roll a fat joint.

In April, the U.S. attorney for Oregon filed a misdemeanor charge against Devontre Thomas for possessing “about a gram” of cannabis, according to his public defender Ruben Iniguez. A conviction could mean a year in prison and a $1,000 fine. Worse, federal charges can’t be vacated, so Thomas could be denied federal student loans, public housing and government aid for the rest of his life.

Comparing State Approaches to Recreational Marijuana Legalization

Category: News | Posted on Tue, August, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

Recreational cannabis is now legal in four states and the nation’s capital, with more states likely to follow suit this year. Even the federal government is reconsidering the legal status of cannabis, but the status of the recreational market is still in a constant state of flux around the nation. Even in legalized states, lawmakers and voters are still figuring out how to oversee every facet of this new industry.

With so many aspects to consider, we can at least compare cannabis laws among the small sample of states with functioning recreational markets—Colorado, Oregon, and Washington—for guidance on our path toward national legalization.

Michigan Supreme Court drops interest in marijuana bust

Category: News | Posted on Sun, July, 31st 2016 by THCFinder

Centreville, Mich. — After hearing arguments, the state Supreme Court has dropped interest in a case involving police tactics during a marijuana bust in southwestern Michigan.

The issue was whether deputies in St. Joseph County acted legally when they walked to the rear of a home and suspected there was marijuana inside. Moments earlier, they had knocked at a different door and got no answer.

The deputies returned with a warrant. Michael Radandt’s lawyer argued that the warrant was improper because the deputies didn’t have authority to keep snooping, but two courts backed the deputies.Read More:http://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/michigan/2016/07/30/michigan-supreme-court-drops-interest-marijuana-bust/87778548/
