Michigan Supreme Court drops interest in marijuana bust

Category: News | Posted on Sun, July, 31st 2016 by THCFinder

Centreville, Mich. — After hearing arguments, the state Supreme Court has dropped interest in a case involving police tactics during a marijuana bust in southwestern Michigan.

The issue was whether deputies in St. Joseph County acted legally when they walked to the rear of a home and suspected there was marijuana inside. Moments earlier, they had knocked at a different door and got no answer.

The deputies returned with a warrant. Michael Radandt’s lawyer argued that the warrant was improper because the deputies didn’t have authority to keep snooping, but two courts backed the deputies.Read More:http://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/michigan/2016/07/30/michigan-supreme-court-drops-interest-marijuana-bust/87778548/

Boston, MA: Massachusetts voters will decide this November on a statewide ballot measure to legalize and regulate the adult use and retail sale of cannabis.

DEA Compares Home-Grows to Meth Houses

Category: News | Posted on Sat, July, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

Leave it to the DEA to compare growing your own pot at home to the “meth houses of the 1990s.”

In a puzzling new report, the DEA claims that Colorado’s homegrown pot has led to large-scale operations that risk occupants, neighbors and first responders because of a series of conditions that will probably remind most people of their first apartment or their college dorm room.

In its so-called Intelligence Report for June, the DEA lays out what it regards as the dangers of growing pot at home, which include strong odors, excessive noise from air-conditioning, electrical transformers, heavy traffic, moisture, condensation, mold and loose or entangled electrical wires.

Humboldt County Approves First Commercial Cannabis Farms

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

Northern California’s traditional cannabis heartland, Humboldt County, gave an official go-ahead for two commercial medical marijuana farms to open this summer, the Eureka Times-Standard reports. The two operations are Honeydew Farms, a seven-acre outdoor grow in the town of Honeydew, and a quarter-acre “mixed-light” farm run by Blessed Coast LLC in Carlotta. These are the first such enterprises in the county, “marking the beginning of a new era for the industry.”

About 100 more such businesses have submitted applications to the county, and county senior planner Steve Lazar said he expects hundreds more in the coming months. He called the applications the “first end of big wave” that is about to crest. Applications are being made under a regulatory program approved by the county in January, complimenting California’s Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act (MMRSA), which creates a statewide licensing program expected to start in 2018. Under the law, operators must hold both a local and state license.

Michigan Cities Reject Funding For Drug Task Forces on Medical Marijuana Patients

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

(Editor’s Note: Rick Thompson was the Public Relations Director for the MACC organization, which is mentioned in this article. ~RT)

FERNDALE- On Monday night candidates, activists and residents spoke to the Ferndale City Council and told them that supporting the local Drug Task Force was a bad idea.

Surprisingly, the Council listened and voted to withdraw funding for the narcotics task force which operates in the area. The reasoning offered by speakers at the Council meeting centered around the abuses suffered by state-registered medical marijuana patients at the hands of those raid teams across Michigan.

Ferndale is a success story for the people, but it is only the latest in a series of victories gained by medical marijuana activists in the battle to stop an overreaching law enforcement community.
