Polish activists smoke marijuana in front of parliament
WARSAW, Poland – A prominent Polish politician and several other people have smoked marijuana in front of parliament as part of a campaign to liberalize the country's drug laws.
With police looking on, Janusz Palikot, the head of the left-wing party Palikot's Movement, took a few puffs from a joint under falling snow in Warsaw on Friday to make their point.
Activists at the gathering said they want the country's laws changed to decriminalize the possession and consumption of marijuana.
Stelios Alewras, a 26-year-old at the rally, called the act part of a "coming out of smokers of weed."
He said, "I am a lawyer and we want to show that smoking pot is a normal thing like drinking beer."
49ers Sophomore Wing Arrested on Marijuana Charge
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Charlotte 49ers sophomore wing DeMario Mayfield has been arrested on possession of marijuana and released on $250 bond.
Police records indicate Mayfield was arrested Feb. 14 around 2 a.m.

How an Attractive, Undercover Cop Posed as a Student -- Then Entrapped a Smitten Teen to "Sell" Her Marijuana
After spending weeks sharing stories about his life, texting and flirting, one 18-year-old honor student fell in love with the hottie cop who busted him.
Working at the Drug Policy Alliance for the last twelve years I have read and heard countless stories of people having their lives ruined because of our country's cruel war on drugs. Last weekend, the nationally syndicated show This American Life highlighted a story that is so insane, you don't know whether to laugh or puke.
Last year in three high schools in Florida, several undercover police officers posed as students. The undercover cops went to classes, became Facebook friends and flirted with the other students. One 18-year-old honor student named Justin fell in love with an attractive 25-year-old undercover cop after spending weeks sharing stories about their lives, texting and flirting with each other.
One day she asked Justin if he smoked pot. Even though he didn't smoke marijuana, the love-struck teen promised to help find some for her. Every couple of days she would text him asking if he had the marijuana. Finally, Justin was able to get it to her. She tried to give him $25 for the marijuana and he said he didn't want the money -- he got it for her as a present.
A short while later, the police did a big sweep and arrest 31 students -- including Justin. Almost all were charged with selling a small amount of marijuana to the undercover cops. Now Justin has a felony hanging over his head.
TSA Finds Marijuana Smuggled In Peanut Butter Jar

Peanut butter is apparently the choice of both moms and drug smugglers. A California man was detained Wednesday at Oakland International Airport after marijuana was discovered hidden inside his Skippy jar, reports NBC Bay Area.
The unidentified man was heading to Los Angeles, but was stopped after a screener noticed something strange in his jar of PB. That object turned out to be a zip-top bag of pot, stuck inside the peanut butter. According to ABC 7 San Francisco the PB in question was of the Skippy Creamy variety.
“Drugs aren’t something we’re looking for,” said TSA spokesman Nico Melendez to the San Francisco Chronicle. “The concern here is that peanut butter is prohibited anyway because of the liquid ban."
According to witnesses, the man told agents the drugs were hidden because he didn't have a medical marijuana card. He was cited and released.
This is the second time in four months that peanut buttered pot has been found in baggage, reports Mercury News. Both instances involved Skippy. For those keeping track, that is one incident away from a trend.
This instance involved just a small amount of drugs, but in January officials at Philadelphia international airport found a cache of cocaine worth $4 million.
Student sues Ga. school district over marijuana strip search

I guess schools think they are the police now and it's ok for them to strip down teen boys or girls to their underwear whenever they want....
ATLANTA (AP) — A Georgia middle school student claimed in a lawsuit Wednesday he was humiliated and traumatized when he was brought to a vice principal's office and forced to strip in front of classmates who said he had marijuana.
The student, then in the seventh-grade, said he still suffers from emotional distress because his classmates taunted him by calling him Superman, the underwear he was wearing when he was strip-searched. The student is suing the Clayton County school district for unspecified punitive and compensatory damages.
Clayton County school officials didn't immediately respond to requests for comment about the lawsuit, filed in federal court.
The student, identified in court documents as D.H., said officials at Eddie White Academy initially strip-searched three other students on Feb. 8, 2011, after suspecting they had marijuana. One of them accused D.H. of having drugs, and he was brought to then-vice principal Tyrus McDowell's office.
While the three classmates watched, D.H.'s pockets and book bag were searched but didn't find anything, the lawsuit said. One of the students told school officials he had lied about D.H. having drugs, but administrators continued the search as D.H. begged to be taken to the bathroom for more privacy, according to the lawsuit.
D.H. was ordered to strip and again, no drugs were found.
"The strip searches were done intentionally, willfully, wantonly, maliciously, recklessly, sadistically, deliberately, with callous indifference to their consequences," according to the lawsuit, which also names as defendants the county's sheriff's department and Ricky Redding, the school's resource officer.
The student's attorney, Gerry Weber, said a 2009 U.S. Supreme Court ruling found school officials can't perform even a partial strip search of a student, even if they have probable cause.
Vending gets marijuana dispensary in hot water
Category: News | Posted on Tue, February, 14th 2012 by THCFinder
The founder of the company that makes the medical marijuana vending machine recently purchased by Purple Cross RX sent a cease-and-desist letter to the local dispensary and has threatened to sue it for harming his company’s image.
Vincent Mehdizadeh, the founder and chief executive officer of Prescription Vending Machines, Inc., said he and the media “have fallen victim” to Purple Cross founder Scott McPhail, whom Mehdizadeh says lied about his involvement with the machine that uses touch-screen technology to distribute marijuana to card-holding patients.
“We’re doing big things on a state level,” Mehdizadeh said. “We can’t be mixed in with a trouble-making dispensary. I had no idea they had trouble with San Benito County. Now it’s a huge mess.”
McPhail got in contact with The Pinnacle and local television stations last week to showcase the MedBox machine that he had purchased and put in the lobby of his dispensary on Bolsa Road. He told the newspaper that he planned to market the machines to pharmacies, medical facilities and other dispensaries throughout the state. A television station reported that McPhail helped create the machine, which is not true.
That prompted Mehdizadeh to contact McPhail and demand that he stop conducting “unauthorized interviews” and offering “misinformation” that is “causing a lot of frustration within my company.”
“This, along with the fact that the clinic you house the machine at is the subject of a lawsuit from San Benito County, is extremely troubling,” Mehdizadeh wrote to McPhail, adding that Purple Cross may continue to use the machine only for demonstration purposes for “prospective interested parties with properly licenses marijuana clinics.”
“I appreciate your enthusiasm for my company’s products,” the letter continued. “However, you may have really damaged my company’s reputation in ways you can’t even begin to understand ... Now people will wonder if Purple Cross Rx is owned by Medbox, Inc. or if there is some sort of affiliation, which as you and I well know, there is not.”
