Idaho Moms For Marijuana’s New Year’s Smokeout

Category: News | Posted on Sun, December, 27th 2015 by THCFinder

On January 1st, 2016, at 4pm, we will gather on the Idaho State Capitol steps and peacefully assemble to celebrate the New Year by using our constitutionally protected voices to demand reform of Idaho’s outdated marijuana laws.

This will be an act of civil disobedience, and we will light up at 4:20pm in protest of Idaho’s current policies, asking the question once again…”WHO ARE WE HURTING?”

Please bring a protest sign demanding reform of Marijuana Laws in Idaho! And BYOB (Bring Your Own Bud)

As always, this is an opportunity to sign New Approach Idaho’s Medical Marijuana Petition. www.LegalizeIdaho.com

Participation in acts of civil disobedience are not required to attend.

As with all events, all families are welcome. However, for safety concerns (regarding police & Child Protective Services, not the marijuana), we suggest that you leave your minor children at home.

**Dress Warmly & Don’t Forget Your Gloves!

Facebook Event – https://www.facebook.com/events/1636712119949631/1659840417636801/

Last Chance To Send In Your Florida Medical Marijuana Petition

Category: News | Posted on Sat, December, 26th 2015 by THCFinder

united for care florida medical marijuanaThe deadline to turn in your signed Florida medical marijuana petition is rapidly approaching. I received the following reminder from the Florida campaign. If you haven’t signed the petition yet and made sure the campaign has it, please do so asap:

THIS IS IMPORTANT:

If you do not mail in your 2016 signed medical marijuana petition to the campaign by Monday, we can’t guarantee it will be processed in time to help us.

As a reminder, we need to get 683,149 petitions validated by the various Supervisors of Elections in each county. However, we need time to sort and submit them, and they can take as long as 30 days to process.

If you haven’t already, print, sign and send in your petition by end of day Monday.  Instructions and address are on the pdf at that link. If you are not sure whether you signed this one or not, please sign it and mail it again. It will not be double counted.

Once you have sent in your petition, please help us fund the collection of petitions across Florida by making a contribution before our end of month deadline. We need to hit our goal of $150,000 by Friday – and we are REALLY close.

We can’t let this opportunity to help patients get access to medical marijuana slip by. We’re too close.

Thanks for your help.

Congress Just Ended The Ban On Medical Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sat, December, 26th 2015 by THCFinder

The federal ban on medical marijuana is finally a thing of the past. Slipped inside a major budgetary spending bill that was purported to prevent the government from shutting down, is an interesting earmarked section that finally lifts the federal ban on medical marijuana.

The relevant excerpt of bill H.R. 83 text reads as follows:
 

 
“Sec. 538. None of the funds made available in this Act to the Department of Justice may be used, with respect to the States of Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Washington, and Wisconsin, to prevent such States from implementing their own State laws that authorize the use, distribution, possession, or cultivation of medical marijuana. Sec. 539. None of the funds made available by this Act may be used in contravention of section 7606 (“Legitimacy of Industrial Hemp Research”) of the Agricultural Act of 2014 (Public Law 113-79) by the Department of Justice or the Drug Enforcement Administration.”

Cassandra Fairbanks, of the Bipartisan Report, notes that “The measure allows states to implement their own policies regarding medical marijuana, meaning the Department of Justice is now barred from interfering with state medical cannabis laws.”

Small Amounts of Cannabis Can Improve Some People’s Driving Ability, Says Scientists

Category: News | Posted on Sat, December, 26th 2015 by THCFinder

Earlier this week, academics from the Cannabis Chemistry Division of the American Chemical Society held an open Ask Me Anything session in Reddit’s Science community to take all your questions about the most talked about plant around: marijuana.

In the AMA, the researchers say they are constantly having to defend their research projects. Even though they’re not breaking any laws, they mention that their peers constantly make “wild assumptions” about their work with marijuana.

That’s not surprising considering they work in a controversial field. What is surprising, however, are some of the studies they brought up in the discussion.

Man Argues DC Pot Laws Make Brownie Business Legal

Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 25th 2015 by THCFinder

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A man accused of running a business known as "Kush Gods" that openly sold marijuana brownies and other pot-laced edibles on the streets of Washington has been released from custody - and he's anything but apologetic.

District of Columbia police announced Tuesday that Nicholas Cunningham, 30, and an employee, Evonne Lidoff, 18, were facing misdemeanor charges of marijuana distribution. They were released after their initial court appearances and ordered to stay away from the nightlife districts where police say they were operating.

Possession of up to 2 ounces of marijuana for personal use is legal in the District of Columbia. It's also legal to grow pot at home, and to give it away. But selling the drug is illegal. That's why Kush Gods asked for "donations" rather than listing prices for its products.

DOJ Suspends Asset Forfeiture Equitable Sharing Payment Program

Asset forfeiture is not a topic that enough people know about, even though it is one of the main tools in the war on drugs. Law enforcement can basically take stuff now, and ask questions later. Or in some cases, not even really ask any questions at all. For a very long time now, law enforcement can say that cash, cars, and other assets were used in illegal activity, and take those things, even if charges are never filed against the person they took them from. I’ve heard of it happening too many times to count. One of my friends was driving from Illinois to Oregon and had $18,000 taken from him, even though he wasn’t doing anything illegal and was never charged with anything.

Asset forfeiture is a very large funding source for many law enforcement agencies, some of which abuse the funding. There are going to be some changes for the foreseeable future however. Per the Institute for Justice:

On Monday, following the passage of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016, the Department of Justice Asset Forfeiture Program announced that it would defer all equitable sharing payments for forfeitures, both civil and criminal, to state, local, and tribal partners for the foreseeable future. Following the DOJ’s announcement, the International Association of Chiefs of Police issued a statement, saying that the decision was “detrimental to state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve.”
