Army to Troops: Stay Away from Pot Fests

Category: News | Posted on Wed, September, 28th 2016 by THCFinder

It is no secret that the United States military will practically bury those soldiers caught smoking marijuana in a dark, damp corridor underneath the Pentagon. Now one Army general in Alaska has made it clear that it’s verboten even to attend cannabis-related festivals.

Major General Bryan Owens, the leading command behind the Army stationed in the Last Frontier, issued a statement to more than 10,000 soldiers prohibiting them from attending stoned soirees, including “marijuana, cannabis or hemp fairs, festivals, conventions and similar events.”

“These types of events typically involve, but are not limited to, promoting the use of marijuana and disseminating information on the growing and processing of marijuana,” Owens wrote. “Attendance at such events is inconsistent with military service and has the potential to adversely impact the health, welfare and good order and discipline for soldiers stationed here.”

Marijuana Busts Drop to Lowest Rate in 20 Years

Category: News | Posted on Wed, September, 28th 2016 by THCFinder

The feds say that marijuana arrests are dropping.

Year over year, they dropped 7 percent, to about 575,000 in 2015. That’s still 575,00 too many, but it’s a welcome change from 2007, where 800,000 marijuana arrests were made.

The decline makes sense given that four states and the District of Columbia have legalized the drug. But it also tells you that a lot of police time is being used up on a pointless exercise in the states that haven’t yet legalized.

Phoenix Chief: 3 Officers Resign After Man Forced to Eat Pot

Category: News | Posted on Sun, September, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

PHOENIX (AP) — Three Phoenix police officers have resigned after a man alleged they forced him to eat marijuana found in his vehicle to avoid going to jail, Chief Joseph Yahner said Thursday.

A fourth officer, Jeff Farrior, was demoted from lieutenant to sergeant for being aware of last week’s incident and not taking appropriate action, Yahner told reporters.

“Their actions are appalling and unacceptable. This conduct is against everything that we stand for,” Yahner said.

Police identified the three officers who quit as Richard G. Pina, Jason E. McFadden and Michael J. Carnicle.

Republican Lawmaker Wants New Jersey to Regulate Pot Like Tobacco

Category: News | Posted on Sat, September, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

Legalize marijuana, treat it like tobacco, and sell it at convenience stores. If one colorful conservative lawmaker from New Jersey has his way, that’s what will happen in the Garden State.

Assemblyman Michael Patrick Carroll, a Republican, filed Assembly Bill 4193 on Monday for consideration in New Jersey’s 2016-2017 legislative session.  Carroll is also a lead sponsor of A2050, a bill introduced in January to decriminalize up to 15 grams of marijuana in the state.

Carroll, a right-winger with a strong libertarian strain, is known in the state for his contrarian bent. He refers to Gov. Chris Christie as “the Fat Man”; an avid Civil War re-enactor, he named one of his sons after Robert E. Lee.

Oakland Keeps Pushing on Creative Cannabis Regulation

Category: News | Posted on Sat, September, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

With polls showing big support for California’s legalization initiative this November, an Oakland city councilmember is seeking not only tax revenues but a direct cut of profits from local cannabis businesses.

Desley Brooks is the same councilmember who pushed last year’s successful “Equity Amendment,” which prioritizes cannabis convicts and areas with high marijuana arrest rates for new canna-business permits—an effort to address the racist legacy of marijuana prohibition and the War on Drugs.
 
The new one is intended to augment the strapped city’s budget and fund social programs. Her measure would require any new Oakland cannabis company to make the city government a 25 percent partner. Companies that don’t cut Oakland in would not get a permit and therefore not be allowed to operate under local law—or state law, which mandates compliance with municipal ordinances.

Cannabis is Not a Gateway Drug, Admits U.S. Attorney General

Category: News | Posted on Fri, September, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

In a statement made a recent town hall in Richmond, Kentucky, U.S. Attorney General Lorett Lynch admitted that cannabis is not a gateway drug, which is one of the most prominent arguments made in opposition to legalizing cannabis (that it leads to the use of harder drugs).

During the town hall in Richmond, being held as part of President Obama’s National Prescription Opioid and Heroin Epidemic Awareness Week (quite a mouth full), Lynch was asked by a Madison Central High School student whether she believes that the use of cannabis among students will lead to opioid abuse.

“There a lot of discussion about marijuana these days”, Lynch stated. “Some states are making it legal, people are looking into medical uses for it, and I understand that it still is as common as almost anything. When we talk about heroin addiction, we unusually, as we have mentioned, are talking about individuals that started out with a prescription drug problem, and then because they need more and more, they turn to heroin. It isn’t so much that marijuana is the step right before using prescription drugs or opioids.”
