Washington State seeks to keep marijuana out of bars

Category: News | Posted on Sun, March, 31st 2013 by THCFinder
SEATTLE — Washington Gov. Jay Inslee wants the state Liquor Control Board to figure out how to stop the spread of bars allowing marijuana consumption.
 
The issue became a concern for Inslee after an Associated Press story about two bars, Frankie’s in Olympia and Stonegate in Tacoma, letting patrons use marijuana within their walls.
 
Voters legalized recreational marijuana through Initiative 502. But I-502 prohibits public consumption. “We think the board needs to give this a very hard look,” said Inslee spokesman David Postman. “We will implement the will of the voters and create a well-regulated industry. Washingtonians did not vote for a wide-open policy.”
 
The board is considering its options. However, there’s “a loophole in the law that doesn’t allow the board to hold licensees accountable” for such activity, said board enforcement chief Justin Nordhorn.

Arizona ruling on DUI test for marijuana appealed

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 30th 2013 by THCFinder
PHOENIX (AP) -- The Arizona Supreme Court is being asked to review a lower court's ruling that marijuana smokers can be prosecuted for driving under the influence even when there is no evidence that they are actually high.
 
The Court of Appeals on Feb. 12 overturned a trial judge who said it doesn't make sense to prosecute people with no evidence they're under the influence.
 
At issue are the chemical compounds in marijuana that show up in blood and urine tests after people smoke pot.
 
The case stems from a motorist's blood test. It revealed only a chemical compound that is found in the blood after another compound produced from ingesting marijuana breaks down.
 
The Supreme Court will receive additional legal briefs before deciding whether or not to hear the case.

Kansas Couple Grows Vegetables Indoors, Raided for Marijuana, Sues

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 30th 2013 by THCFinder
LEAWOOD, KS — Two former CIA employees whose Kansas home was fruitlessly searched for marijuana during a two-state drug sweep claim they were illegally targeted, possibly because they had bought indoor growing supplies to raise vegetables.
 
Adlynn and Robert Harte sued this week to get more information about why sheriff’s deputies searched their home in the upscale Kansas City suburb of Leawood last April 20 as part of Operation Constant Gardener – a sweep conducted by agencies in Kansas and Missouri that netted marijuana plants, processed marijuana, guns, growing paraphernalia and cash from several other locations.
 
April 20 long has been used by the marijuana community to celebrate the cannabis plant, and more recently by law enforcement for raids and crackdowns. But the Hartes’ attorney, Cheryl Pilate, said she suspects the couple’s 1,825-square-foot split level was targeted because they had bought hydroponic equipment to grow a small number of tomatoes and squash plants in their basement.
 
“With little or no other evidence of any illegal activity, law enforcement officers make the assumption that shoppers at the store are potential marijuana growers, even though the stores are most commonly frequented by backyard gardeners who grow organically or start seedlings indoors,” the couple’s lawsuit says.

Marijuana dispensary owner sentenced to time served

Category: News | Posted on Fri, March, 29th 2013 by THCFinder
A federal judge sentenced a man who pleaded guilty to operating an illegal marijuana grow house to time served, setting conditions that include home detention while issuing a sharp reminder that the drug remains illegal under federal law.
 
Hai Manh Do, 46, operated Earth's Medicine, a dispensary at 74 N. Federal Blvd., which was closed by state medical-marijuana regulators who found the operation, which included a grow house, wasn't properly licensed by the state.
 
The case is a reminder that marijuana remains illegal under federal law despite Colorado residents' vote to legalize it, U.S. District Judge Robert Blackburn said Wednesday. "This case makes it clear that federal drug laws are not moribund even in the state of Colorado."

'Cannabis clubs' register in France

Category: News | Posted on Thu, March, 28th 2013 by THCFinder
THE first of an estimated 400 "cannabis social clubs" in France have formally registered their existence. 
 
Fifteen clubs have lodged declarations at their local préfecture, registering as a not-for-profit association. 
 
The clubs bring together growers and consumers of cannabis, who share their produce but do not sell it. They are considered illegal in France, but legally recognised in neighbouring Spain and Belgium. 
 
A notice advising of the formal creation of the French Federation of Cannabis Social Clubs appeared in the Journal Officiel earlier this week. 
 
Local branches have been declared in the Loire-Atlantique, Vendée, Creuse, Charente-Maritime, Indre-et-Loire and Haute-Vienne. 
 
Authorities could close the clubs down at any point - but organisers hope for long legal delays before that happens.

Two St. Louis Officers Questioned After Marijuana Never Reported

Category: News | Posted on Thu, March, 28th 2013 by THCFinder
ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — Two St. Louis Police officers are being asked “Where’s the pot?” This after dashboard camera footage shows one of the officers confiscating a small bag of what appeared to be marijuana during a traffic stop, but that bad never made it to evidence.
 
This happened in February, but an audit of dashboard camera footage uncovered the discrepancy.
 
Police Chief Sam Dotson told KMOX he doesn’t believe there was any wrongdoing. “I have no reason to believe the officer kept the marijuana for personal use, I have no reason to believe they kept for sale.
