Marijuana advocate chooses prison over giving up Cannabis

Category: News | Posted on Thu, June, 16th 2011 by THCFinder
Joel Castle would rather go to prison for nine months than spend the next three years on probation. That’s how serious he is about his medicine. He will be serving a 9 month prison sentence instead of taking the probation offer.
 
Castle, who was found guilty last month of two felonies associated with a guitar-for-pot trade back in January 2010, was sentenced earlier this month. First, Judge Robert Glusman offered three years’ probation. Castle refused, made a bit of a stink in court, and was sentenced instead to two years, eight months in state prison.
 
I was offered probation a year ago. I didn’t take it then; why would they think I’d take it now?” he said, referring to a proposed deal with the prosecution last year that would have required he plead guilty, something he would not do.
 
“On probation, the ‘D.A.’s conditions,’ not laws, that I consider illegal, apply,” Castle explained in a letter to this reporter. Those conditions “take away my Prop 215 rights for three years, which I have and will always refuse as the medical cannabis advocate of Butte County.

Are you a RAT? Narcotics Detectives Turn to Public

Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 10th 2011 by THCFinder
Another waste of Tax payers hard earned money.....
 
In hopes of cracking down on illegal outdoor marijuana growers in Santa Barbara County, Sheriff’s Narcotics detectives are turning to the public for assistance. The Narcotics Division has received a federal grant to help it fund the production and distribution of fliers encouraging the public to help law enforcement officers identify and report non-medical marijuana producers.
 
Last year alone, the Sheriff’s Office destroyed more than 325,000 marijuana plants with a street value of more than $900,000,000, said spokesperson Drew Sugars.
 
The fliers explain what signs to look for when identifying someone who may be using forest or private land to cultivate marijuana. It is the hope of the detectives that by creating the fliers, they will not only educate people about illegal marijuana operations, but also minimize the danger to citizens and reduce environmental damage that can be attributed to unlawful marijuana growth.

WA judges decide 8 to 1, you can lose your job for smoking

Category: News | Posted on Thu, June, 9th 2011 by THCFinder

The Washington state supreme court decides 8 to 1 that medical marijuana patients can lose their job for failing a drug test.

 

While Justice Tom Chambers said it was unfortunate that the law does not take into account medical marijuana patients but at rules are rules at this point and you have to follow them. Chambers mentioned in his ruling that he would urge the law makers to reevaluate these laws.

 

This ruling partially stemmed from a 2007 law suit where a woman known as 'Jane Roe' was fired from her job at TeleTech Customer Service Management for testing positive at her pre-employment screening. The laws have not yet been changed to accommodate patients usage outside of the workplace. To read more about the Washington State Supreme Court Ruling click here.

Smoking Marijuana and Getting Skinny

Category: News | Posted on Wed, June, 8th 2011 by THCFinder

According to information released at the meeting of the Society for Nuclear Medicine (SNM) a new study may prove that the smoking of marijuana will help you lose weight. Through PET scan imaging scientist were able to examin the brains of hibitual marijuana users.

 

Through the use of marijuana over an extended period of time the THC begins to suppress the level of CB1 receptor activity within the brain. 'The decrease of CB1 activity is known as “downregulation.” And while no specific adverse effects of this occurrence in marijuana users has been identified by researchers, there is a presumption among them that the decrease is not good.'

 

'[In that study], suppression of CB1 activity in obese subjects resulted in reduced waist size, improved blood levels of HDL-cholesterol and triglycerides, and improved insulin activity and overall reduction of symptoms of metabolic syndrome.'

 

The munchies aren't quite a thing of the past but this does show that there is hope for anyone that is a little on the heavy side.
