Going Dutch! Marijuana Cafes Could Close To Foreigners
For many of years now Holland and mainly Amsterdam has been thought of to be the weed capital of the world, In Amsterdam you can find every possible strain of cannabis that you could possibly dream of. Amsterdam itself attracts more then a million British tourists each year alone all of them seeking the legal high that they could not possibly get in their own country, But all of this could possibly change within the near future. There has been talks now that the Dutch Justice Minister is thinking about turning all of the coffee shops in Amsterdam to be Dutch only which could possibly be terrible news for Holland.
The Dutch Justice Minister Mr. Ivo Opstelten said that "Of course tourists are welcome to visit the Netherlands but not only to visit the coffee shops," he also further commented "In the near future, if we work out the processes, the coffee shops will not be accessible to tourists." The justice ministry confirmed the intention to implement the new coalition government's manifesto pledge within the run of the current parliament. For years Britons wishing to sample such herbal offerings that Amsterdam has to offer have been served by bus companies such as Dam Express. A local coffee shop owner quoted that 99% of all of his clients were in fact foreigners and such bans would literally destroy his business.
Driver In Fatal Crash Had 150 lbs Of Marijuana In Car
A man who was arrested last week after a high speed chase on Interstate 10 was accused of having more than $84,000 worth of marijuana in his vehicle, authorities said. Joel O. Morando, 25, was arrested Nov. 11 after he led Arizona Department of Public Safety officers on a 30-mile chase down Interstate 10 before rear ending a pickup truck and crashing near the Avra Valley exit. The driver of the pickup truck, Ronald Papanikolas aged 31 from Magna, Utah, was thrown from the cab of the truck and died at the scene.
The incident reportedly started after a K9 officer pulled Morando over on westbound Interstate 10 near Picacho Peak for following too closely. The officer walked the exterior of the vehicle with the dog before the dog alerted to the vehicle’s trunk. Morando reportedly ran to his vehicle and fled while the officer was waiting for backup units to arrive. The suspect sped down interstate 10 towards Tucson with the officer in pursuit before hitting the pickup truck. There was approximately 153 pounds of marijuana in Morando’s vehicle. Morando is facing charges of first degree murder, felony endangerment, criminal damage, possession of marijuana for sale, transportation of marijuana for sale and possession of marijuana.

Woman Hides Pot in Dirty Diaper
State police say a western Pennsylvania woman tried to hide marijuana in a child's dirty diaper.
Trooper Stefani Plume had just asked permission to search the car of 23-year-old India Banks, of Clairton, when Banks allegedly handed the diaper to the trooper and asked her to toss it into a bag of garbage inside the vehicle.
Plume says she thought it was odd of Banks to hand over the wet diaper instead of throwing it in the bag herself. So the trooper checked inside and found a small bag of marijuana.
Plume described the Oct. 25 traffic stop when Banks appeared in court Wednesday to waive her right to a preliminary hearing. Banks will enter a special probation program for first time offenders that will enable her record to be expunged if she complies with her probation terms.
