Vets get free marijuana in Colorado Springs to fight pain & PTSD

Category: News | Posted on Wed, March, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

A cannabis club in Colorado Springs is handing out free marijuana to military veterans, hoping to give them relief from issues like post-traumatic stress disorder and chronic pain they suffer from after returning home from deployment in war zones.

Over the weekend, the Veteran Farmers Alliance group handed out more than half a pound of pot and marijuana edibles – worth about $1,400 – to veterans in Colorado Springs. The group’s founder, Steve Defino, said other groups should also be doing the same thing and that marijuana was essential for him to deal with his PTSD, which he has fought for a decade.

“I’ve been able to actually go through my memories, recall my memories without getting upset anymore, and I’m starting to live my life again like a normal person,” Defino said in an interview with KXRM, which reported on the pot giveaway.

My Turn: Why a former DEA agent supports legalizing marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Tue, March, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

I was a warrior in the war on drugs.

I spent 20 years fighting the flow of drugs into America, including 18 years as a DEA special agent. As a special agent, I helped spearhead the Drug Enforcement Administration’s marijuana efforts in Florida and New Mexico before retiring.

I spent a lifetime’s work in law enforcement, mostly centered on stanching the flow drugs into America, and  have come to one conclusion: I don’t believe marijuana should be illegal.

Yes, despite a career spent trying to take marijuana off our streets – targeting low-level drug dealers, mom-and-pop grow operations, mega-growers and foreign drug traffickers – I realize our tax dollars and law enforcement resources could have been better spent.

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A western Kansas woman is suing the state and some of the agencies involved in questioning and removing her 11-year-old son from her home after he spoke up at school about her possessing and using marijuana.

Shona Banda's federal lawsuit, filed Thursday, alleges the state of Kansas and its agencies deprived her of her civil rights to treat a debilitating condition that she says is Crohn's disease, the Wichita Eagle reported.

The Garden City woman, 38, also claims officials have infringed on her parenting, and that local police and school employees improperly questioned her son without her permission.

Lt. Gov. Newsom Wants Californians to Support Marijuana Initiative, But Will It Lose the Stoner Vote?

Category: News | Posted on Sun, March, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

While the fight to drag California out of the clutches of prohibition has been ugly and borderline slanderous, a recent editorial by Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom suggests the “Adult Use of Marijuana Act” (AUMA) is the smartest approach to ending the travesty of the drug war in the Golden State.

In a seeming attempt to lure in that percentage of California voters still on the fence about launching a recreational marijuana market, Newsom said that the current law has allowed too many people to be locked up for drug offenses, while the resources spent on treatment and prevention have been next to none.

“Given the high cost and ineffectiveness of the status quo, you don’t have to be ‘pro-marijuana’ to be ‘anti-prohibition,’” he wrote for the Modesto Bee.

Cross-Border Tunnel Extends Length of 4 Football Fields

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- U.S. authorities on Wednesday seized a cross-border tunnel that ran the length of four football fields from a restaurant in Mexicali, Mexico, to a newly built house in Calexico, California, following an investigation that netted more than a ton of marijuana and resulted in four arrests.

The tunnel was the 12th completed secret passage that U.S. authorities have discovered along California's border with Mexico since 2006. They have found more than 75 along the entire U.S.-Mexico border in the last five years, mostly in California and Arizona and many of them incomplete.

Drug traffickers allegedly purchased the Calexico property in April for $240,000 and finished building a three-bedroom house on the parcel for $86,000 by December. Prosecutors say the first tunnel shipment occurred Feb. 28, leading to the seizure of 1,350 pounds of marijuana in West Covina, near Los Angeles.
