How Trump’s Draconian Immigration Plan Will Encourage Organized Crime

Category: News | Posted on Wed, March, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

The New York Times, one of the major news outlets barred from White House press briefings, recently ran an opinion piece entitled “The Immigration Facts Donald Trump Doesn’t Like” which pointed out:

“The moral case against President Trump’s plan to uproot and expel millions of unauthorized immigrants is open-and-shut. But what about the economic cost? This is where deeply shameful collides with truly stupid.”

Just how stupid?

Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich debated former Arizona sheriff Paul Babeu on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, during which Babeu cited anecdotal stories about how illegal immigrants were responsible for thousands of crimes in the United States and how Trump’s immigration plan would restore law and order.

Category: News | Posted on Wed, March, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

According to Reno Gazette Times, the Feds threaten to shut down Las Vegas High Times Cannabis Cup in a Feb. 16 letter to the Moapa Paiute Tribe.

The marijuana trade show and festival, planned for March 4 and 5, would be in violation of that law, according to the letter obtained by the Reno Gazette-Journal.

In the exclusive story, the RGT  posts part of the letter from U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden in which he states:

Who Will Stop Donald Trump’s Marijuana Crackdown?

Category: News | Posted on Tue, February, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

On Feb. 16, a small crowd gathered in front of the Capitol to announce marijuana’s arrival on Capitol Hill as a special interest. The “Cannabis Caucus,” a cadre of cannabis-friendly lawmakers from legal states Alaska, Oregon, California and Colorado, would push for pro-pot policy in Washington. They might have wanted to work on banking, taxation or something boring, but now they have the challenge of convincing Donald Trump that the federal crackdown on recreational marijuana hinted at on Thursday is a bad idea.

Fears of a Donald Trump-led war on weed have never been greater.

Every signal from the White House is a bad one. The Justice Department is run by a Deep South good ole boy with values lifted from Uncle Tom’s Cabin, who likes long prison terms and once joked about the Ku Klux Klan at marijuana’s expense. Trump’s chief advisor is the intellectual muse of the alt-right, and his health secretary was one of the Cannabis Caucus’s  most reliable foes in Congress.

Marijuana industry angered by White House reversal

Category: News | Posted on Tue, February, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

The cannabis industry was rattled Thursday after White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said he expects the Department of Justice to increase enforcement of federal laws prohibiting recreational pot, even in states where it's already legal.

Along with the District of Columbia, eight states have legalized recreational use among adults, including California, Maine, Massachusetts, and Nevada just this past November. That means one in five American adults can smoke, vape, drink, or eat cannabis as they please under state law.

Oklahoma Lawmakers Want to Make Drug Possession Felonies Again

Category: News | Posted on Mon, February, 27th 2017 by THCFinder

Oklahoma has the second-highest incarceration rate in the United States. As usual, nonviolent drug offenses are a large reason why.

Turns out, voters in the deep-red, Trump-loving state are as sick of the drug war as effete coastal liberals. On Election Day, when other states were legalizing marijuana, Oklahomans overwhelmingly approved a ballot measure that reclassified nonviolent drug possession as a misdemeanor crime rather than a felony.

With 26.3 percent of the state’s prison inmates doing time for drugs, and another 23.3 percent in prison for nonviolent offenses of all kinds, Oklahoma’s drug problem was obvious, so State Question 780 was approved with 58.23 percent in support versus 41.77 percent against.

States Respond to Trump’s Impending War on Legal Weed

Category: News | Posted on Sun, February, 26th 2017 by THCFinder

Officials in Washington State are vowing to fight any federal crackdown on the state’s successful cannabis industry after White House press secretary Sean Spicer strongly implied that the Trump administration may crack down on states with legal recreational marijuana.

“We will resist any efforts to thwart the will of the voters in Washington,” said the state’s attorney general Bob Ferguson in an interview with the Seattle Times.

Washington State Governor Jay Inslee and AG Ferguson sent a letter last week to U.S. attorney general and outspoken pot-hater Jeff Sessions, asking to meet and discuss the issue.
