Senate OKs Fine For Small Amounts Of Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Tue, March, 19th 2013 by THCFinder
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland Senate has voted to eliminate potential jail time for people who possess less than 10 grams of marijuana.
 
The Senate voted 30-16 on Tuesday for the measure, which would fine people $100 in civil court, if they possess the equivalent of about two joints or less.
 
Supporters say the measure will save the state money by relieving the strain such crimes put on the criminal justice system. Opponents worry that decriminalization could increase drug use among youth.
 
Meanwhile, the Maryland House Judiciary Committee is also scheduled to hold a hearing Tuesday on a measure to legalize limited amounts of marijuana for adults 21 and older.
 
The bill would remove all penalties for private possession of up to an ounce of marijuana and cultivation of up to three plants.
 
The measure also would direct the Maryland comptroller to license marijuana retail stores, wholesale facilities and testing facilities.

New Mexico passes bill that lowers penalties for Marijuana possession

Category: News | Posted on Wed, March, 13th 2013 by THCFinder
SANTA FE —Adults possessing less than 8 ounces of marijuana in New Mexico would no longer receive any jail time under a bill passed Monday by the House.
 
The House voted 37-33 in favor of House Bill 465, sponsored by Rep. Emily Kane, D-Albuquerque. The bill would reduce penalties for possession of up to 4 ounces to a civil penalty with increasing fines while eliminating the potential for jail time for any amount up to 8 ounces.
 
"Spending $5 million a year to arrest people with small amounts of marijuana is a waste of resources," Kane said during the three-hour debate on the bill. "We could put that money to better use."

Cannabis Butter Extraction Might Have Caused Calabasas Home Fire

Category: News | Posted on Tue, March, 12th 2013 by THCFinder

Three men in their 20s suffered second- and third-degree burns in a fire at a home near Malibu Creek State Park Monday, authorities said.

Hazardous material teams, bomb squad units and narcotics experts were called to the scene for what investigators determined was a flash fire stemming from the extraction of highly-concentrated marijuana "butter."
 
The fire at 620 Crater Camp Drive was reported at 5:10 p.m., according to a Los Angeles County Fire Department dispatcher.
 
Witness Bryan Campbell was in the main house when a blast shattered windows in a nearby rental and a trio of injured strangers came searching for help.
 
"Really burned. Hair burned off, skin," Campbell recalled. "They were in a world of hurt."
 
"I'd say they were all present for the explosion, which must have just engulfed them all in flame, because they all arrived up there with just their underwear on," Campbell added.
 
 
Here is an example of people who have no idea what they are doing and practially blow up their Kitchen trying to make Hash Oil:

Will Local Bans On Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Hold Up Legally?

Category: News | Posted on Tue, March, 12th 2013 by THCFinder
BOSTON — Medical marijuana dispensaries haven’t opened yet in Massachusetts — and some communities in the state hope to keep it that way.
 
Even before Massachusetts voters passed Question 3, which legalized medical marijuana, some cities and towns began researching how they could prevent medical marijuana dispensaries from opening within their borders. Now, some of those communities have passed zoning bylaws banning dispensaries, and they’re waiting to hear whether the state attorney general’s office will approve them.
 
Melrose, Reading and Wakefield, which comprise a regional health district, have passed identical dispensary bans, and Attorney General Martha Coakley must issue her opinion on Wakefield’s bylaw by March 21. WBUR’s All Things Considered host Sacha Pfeiffer spoke with the health director for those communities, Ruth Clay, about why they oppose dispensaries.
