After Trudeau’s election, Toronto has become the wild west of illegal marijuana dispensaries

Category: News | Posted on Sun, May, 15th 2016 by THCFinder

Unless you are one of a few dozen medical marijuana producers with a license from the federal government, it’s illegal to sell weed for any reason in Canada.

 

But you wouldn’t know that walking through Toronto’s Kensington Market. The neighborhood has six of the more than 100 marijuana dispensaries in the city. Most of them sprang up in the last six months. Not coincidentally, that’s right after the election of Justin Trudeau who ran on the legalization of marijuana, among other progressive issues.

How Much Is Too Much Marijuana to Drive? Lawmakers Wonder

Category: News | Posted on Sat, May, 14th 2016 by THCFinder

It’s relatively easy to determine when someone is too drunk to drive. If a driver’s blood-alcohol level is 0.08 percent or higher, that person is considered legally impaired. But a study says that measuring the effects of marijuana on drivers is far trickier, and that blood tests are an unreliable indication of impairment by cannabis.

As more states consider legalizing the substance, that presents a challenge to legislators seeking to create laws on driving while impaired by marijuana.

The study, commissioned by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, found that laws in six states that legally assess impairment by measuring how much THC (the active ingredient in marijuana) is in a person’s blood are not supported by science.

Arkansas Cops Seize $20K Cash From Man With No Criminal Record

Category: News | Posted on Thu, May, 12th 2016 by THCFinder

Asset forfeiture laws have long been criticized as a way for law enforcement agencies to line their pockets in the absence of due process. Just look at the case of Annette and Dale Shattuck, whose assets were seized even though charges against them were dropped. Years after their initial arrest, the Shattucks are still trying to get their property back.

Now, another troubling asset forfeiture tale has emerged out of Arkansas, reports reason.com. State police sergeant Dennis Overton pulled over Guillermo Espinoza in July of 2013, for an unspecified "traffic stop." Overton requested a drug dog, which did not alert on Espinoza's car. (If the dog did, it would've given police probable cause for a search).

In Post-Legalization CO, Racist Marijuana Arrests Persist

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

Marijuana legalization in Colorado brought the arrest rate down overall, but racial disparity in weed arrests has continued, a new report from the Colorado Department of Public Safety found. A 46 percent decrease in marijuana arrests from 2012 to 2014 included a 51 percent decrease for whites, 33 percent decreases for Hispanics, and 25 percent decrease for African-Americans. The uneven distribution in the dip across demographics means that, in 2014, black people were arrested at three times the rate of white people. 

For youth in Colorado, however, legalization has not allowed for a drop in arrests, but an increase especially concentrated among black kids. In the state, the annual number of youth marijuana arrests increased 5% from 2012 to 2014. A stark rise in the number of weed arrests among black (58% increase) and Hispanic (29 percent increase) youths drove the increase in the juvenile demographic. White kids, on the other hand, enjoyed an 8% decrease in marijuana arrests over the same period.
