Mother’s Day Marijuana Billboards Launched In Phoenix And Tucson

Category: News | Posted on Mon, May, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

regulate marijuana like alcohol arizona 2016Backers of an initiative to end marijuana prohibition in Arizona launched a pair of Mother’s Day-themed billboards in Phoenix and Tucson on Monday. An image of the billboard is attached, and a high-resolution version is available at http://bit.ly/1N3OkrX.

Leaders of the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol will hold media availabilities at 11 a.m. in front of the billboard in Phoenix (1925 E. Indian School Rd.) and at 2 p.m. in front of the billboard in Tucson (3640 S. 6th Ave.).

The ads, which are targeted at younger voters, feature a young woman sitting with her mother and ask: “Have you talked to your parents about marijuana?” The goal of the ads is to flip the script on marijuana education and encourage younger voters to start conversations about marijuana with their family members — especially older generations who have been led to believe marijuana is more harmful than it actually is. The billboards direct viewers to a website — http://TalkItUpArizona.org — that allows them to send a message about marijuana to their parents or other relatives. The billboards will run through Sunday, which is Mother’s Day.

“For decades, the federal government distributed anti-marijuana propaganda to parents and encouraged them to share it with their children,” said CRMLA Chairman J.P. Holyoak. “It’s time for younger folks to start sharing the facts about marijuana with their parents and other older relatives.

Runnin’ Republican Shuts Down State Canvassers Meeting By Fleeing

Category: News | Posted on Sat, April, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

Why did a member of the Michigan Board of State Canvassers bolt from the room and halt the discussions regarding a policy change being advocated for by a marijuana legalization organization?

Was it a floral emergency?

Norm Shinkle has faced his share of tough votes on the Board, including delivering decisions on petitions that would expand the number of casinos in Michigan, require a vote of the people before raising taxes, decide the fate of an international bridge and Michigan’s broken Emergency Manager program.

On April 25, the four-member Board was convened to roll out a proposal created by Board staff which would allow an easier method for validating signatures collected on initiative petitions that are older than 180 days; the current policy dates back to the 1980’s and desperately needs to be updated. Asking for the update is the MILegalize group and anti-fracking organizations who have already been collecting signatures on petitions.

Colorado Pot Profiteers Draft Bill to Hijack the Industry

Category: News | Posted on Fri, April, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

The draft of a bill to be introduced in the Colorado Senate next week proposes such momentous changes to the marijuana industry that it has prompted suspicion that industry players are writing policy to line their pockets. 

The bill, which appears to be a sweeping and controversial overhaul, seeks to change licensing procedures and ease pesticide restrictions. It was drafted by Republican Colorado State Senator Randy Baumgardner, in tandem with the Colorado Cannabis Chamber of Commerce and the trade organization Marijuana Industry Group. The changes could put regulation and licensing Colorado’s marijuana industry in the hands of a few potentially high-profile, pro-big business individuals, and take the regulatory process away from the state’s larger enforcement division.

Chicago Narcs Busted Lying Through Their Teeth In Marijuana Case

Category: News | Posted on Thu, April, 28th 2016 by THCFinder

cops law enforcement special needs students entrapmentBy Clarence Walker

It was just another marijuana bust by Chicago’s crack dope squad and should have resulted in an easy conviction, but thanks to a forgotten camera, things didn’t exactly work out the way the cops planned. Now, the pot dealer is free, he has a bunch of cash in pocket, and it’s the cops who are facing justice.

It went down on June 6, 2013, when three Chicago Police narcotics officer and a pair of suburban Glenview police officers pulled over Joseph Sperling on the pretext that he had failed to properly use his turn signal, then claimed Sperling told them there were drugs in his vehicle. The cops said they found marijuana in plain view and arrested Sperling on marijuana possession and distribution charges. Business as usual, so far.

But when it came time to go to court the following March, things went south for the cops. Prosecutors had been questioning Chicago PD narcotics officer William Pruente, who said in sworn testimony that when police pulled over Sperling they immediately smelled marijuana and ordered him to exit the vehicle and stand at the rear of the car.

Then, defense attorney Steven Goldman asked the veteran narc if Sperling was handcuffed after he got out of the car.

Two marijuana-friendly establishments in Trenton, New Jersey — one an eatery and one a religious organization — were raided by local authorities yesterday. The pro-weed restaurant NJ Weedman’s Joint, run by legalization activist Ed “Weedman” Forchion, and the weed-worshipping organization The Liberty Bell Temple 3 both received visits from the County Narcotics Task Force yesterday. The Trenton Police Department cooperated in the operation that resulted in several arrests, though only two of the nine arrestees were held on drug charges.

Denver Freezes Weed Industry at Current Size

Category: News | Posted on Wed, April, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

The "booming" marijuana industry in Denver, Colorado will remain frozen at its current size. 

On Monday, the Denver City Council approved a hotly-debated bill to ban new marijuana shops and grows, leaving a lock on the current number of stores. Applicants can apply to establish new marijuana businesses when the number of operations drops below the current cap, but the distribution of marijuana businesses will play a role in determining where they can operate.
