Arizona Sheriff Arpaio forms squad in response to medical marijuana law
PHOENIX (AP) — Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is forming a special squad to target people use Arizona's new medical marijuana law to violate other drug laws.
Arpaio says he wants to be prepared for criminals who believe the voter-approved law will give them cover to deal marijuana with impunity.
The measure will allow patients with cancer, HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C and other chronic or debilitating diseases to buy 2 1/2 ounces of marijuana every two weeks or grow a limited number of plants themselves if they live 25 miles from a marijuana dispensary.
Patients could begin buying pot with a doctor's recommendation in the state this summer.
Oakland city attorney won't advise on pot plan
OAKLAND, Calif.—Oakland City Attorney John Russo says he will no longer advise the City Council about its plans to license large-scale marijuana farms.
In a letter to Mayor Jean Quan and each council member dated Thursday, Russo is not specific about what prompted him to make the move.
He cites state professional conduct rules and the council's efforts this week to redraft its proposed pot-farm ordinance to address state and federal law enforcement officials' concerns about its legality.
In July, Oakland became the first city in the country to authorize the licensing of marijuana cultivation operations.
Russo's office declined to comment on the letter to the Oakland Tribune.
Councilwoman Jane Brunner told the newspaper Russo has an obligation to advise the council. Brunner said any money to hire outside counsel should come from Russo's budget.
Obama: Drugs Should be Treated as a Public Health Problem
Ask Obama....Marijuana topics take over as most popular questions!
Will President Obama dodge the most popular questions asked to him like last year? The first 5 pages of the most popular questions are nearly all cannabis related. It looks like Obama needs to step up and answer some questions openly and honestly regarding our failed drug laws. With so much attention to Marijuana and the medical marijuana industry we can only hope our president will step up and at least answer some of our important questions that have been ignored for far too long. The people want some answers and it's about time we get something done about this problem.
There is minimal time left to ask your questions so get in quick and ask away. The more cannabis related questions that keep popping up the better chance we have to finally get some real answers...hopefully.

Sen. Kohl-Welles introduces medical marijuana reform legislation
On Tuesday 36th District Sen. Jeanne Kohl-Welles, along with Rep. Jim Moeller of Vancouver and bi-partisan support, introduced new legislation to clarify and provide a strong legal framework for Washington’s existing medical marijuana laws.
The bill, according to Kohl-Welles, reflects the tenth iteration since she first released it last February, incorporating input from patients, providers, advocates, health professionals, government officials, legislators, and law enforcement representatives.
The resulting legislation, Senate Bill 5073 (.pdf) and House Bill 1100 (.pdf), if made into law, would establish a regulatory system for the sale and purchase of medical marijuana to qualified patients.
“There is much ambiguity around our state’s current medical marijuana laws that is resulting in inconsistent enforcement throughout the state,” Kohl-Welles said in a statement Tuesday. “Creating a statutory and regulatory structure for licensing growers and dispensaries will allow us to provide for an adequate, safe, consistent, and secure source of the medicine for qualifying patients, address public safety concerns and establish statewide uniformity in the implementation of the law.”
Under the new legislation legally compliant patients and growers would be protected from arrest, search, and prosecution for the use of medical cannabis. The bill would also require law enforcement to consult a voluntary registry of patients before conducting warrantless searches or arrests, and registered patients would be protected against search and seizure, unless existing evidence indicated criminal activity was taking place.
