Feds To Legal Medical Marijuana Patients: You Don’t Have Second Amendment Rights. Period. | NORML Blog, Marijuana Law Reform

Feds To Legal Medical Marijuana Patients: You Don’t Have Second Amendment Rights. Period. | NORML Blog, Marijuana Law Reform: "The federal government, notably under the current administration, continues to paint itself into a corner politically speaking regarding Mr. Obama’s pre-election promises to ‘fix the problem with medical marijuana’.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) issued a memorandum on September 21 to all gun dealers in the United States for the expressed purpose of informing them that they MUST discriminate against lawful medical cannabis patients and DENY them their Second Amendment right to buy and possess a firearm for hunting and/or personal protection."

Feds Say Constitution Does Not Apply to Medical Marijuana Patients — MPP Blog

Feds Say Constitution Does Not Apply to Medical Marijuana Patients — MPP Blog: "We are all used to the federal government offering only limited deference to states when it comes to medical marijuana. And we are certainly used to it refusing to admit that patients have a legal right to use marijuana for medical purposes, or even that marijuana has medical value at all.

Apparently, it also thinks that those who are abiding by state law and using medical marijuana do not have certain constitutional rights, either."

Army Accidentally Drops Soldiers Into Afghani Marijuana Field - Toke of the Town

As a blogger so involved in this topic - I must say: LOL! Boy what a day for paratroopers!

Army Accidentally Drops Soldiers Into Afghani Marijuana Field - Toke of the Town: "Some American soldiers got an unexpectedly scenic mission in Afghanistan recently when their Chinook helicopters discharged them into the middle of a marijuana field.

Laura Rauch at Stars and Stripes reports that the mission for soldiers with Company C and the Scout Platoon, 1st Battalion, 32nd Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division was to cut off enemy access and supply routes."

He was 14 yrs. 6mos. and 5 days old --- and the youngest person executed in the United States in the 20th Century | Flickr - Photo Sharing!: "In a South Carolina prison sixty-six years ago, guards walked a 14-year-old boy, bible tucked under his arm, to the electric chair. At 5' 1" and 95 pounds, the straps didn’t fit, and an electrode was too big for his leg.

The switch was pulled and the adult sized death mask fell from George Stinney’s face. Tears streamed from his eyes. Witnesses recoiled in horror as they watched the youngest person executed in the United States in the past century die.

Now, a community activist is fighting to clear Stinney’s name, saying the young boy couldn’t have killed two girls. George Frierson, a school board member and textile inspector, believes Stinney’s confession was coerced, and that his execution was just another injustice blacks suffered in Southern courtrooms in the first half of the 1900s."

Go To Church Or Go To Jail: Alabama Rejects The Constitution | Addicting Info

Go To Church Or Go To Jail: Alabama Rejects The Constitution | Addicting Info: "In a breathtaking assault on the First Amendment, The town of Bay Minette, Alabama has decided to give non-violent offenders a “choice”: jail time or a year of attending church.

Operation Restore Our Community or “ROC”…begins next week. The city judge will either let misdemenor offenders work off their sentences in jail and pay a fine or go to church every Sunday for a year.

If offenders elect church, they’re allowed to pick the place of worship, but must check in weekly with the pastor and the police department. If the one-year church attendance program is completed successfully, the offender’s case will be dismissed.

Make no mistake about it. This is a test case to bring before the Supreme Court. The goal here is not to “change the lives of many people heading down the wrong path” as Bay Minette Police Chief Mike Rowland claims. The goal is to circumvent the First Amendment entirely."

Some are very nuts and bolts, saying the war on drugs has cost trillions of dollars while only making the problem worse. Others like Kane, while agreeing on that point, are more philosophical. “Our national drug policy is inconsistent with the nature of justice, abusive of the nature of authority, and ignorant of the compelling force of forgiveness,” he says on the web site of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition."

Despite praise as success, some say N.M. medical cannabis program needs work | Hemp Beach TV Stoner News & Television Network HBTV Stoner Television Network

Despite praise as success, some say N.M. medical cannabis program needs work | Hemp Beach TV Stoner News & Television Network HBTV Stoner Television Network: "Four years after New Mexico’s Medical Cannabis Program was created, nearly 4,000 New Mexico residents have been approved to use the herb as medicine, and 25 nonprofit producers have been licensed to sell it to them.

New Mexico’s system for regulating those producers is being adopted by other states as a model for allowing medicinal use of marijuana without seeing pot dispensaries pop up on every street corner, as they have in California and Colorado.

The program has produced some spinoff businesses and is generating hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of tax revenue from the sale of medical marijuana. And this year, for the first time, the state coffers will see an influx of cash from fees paid by producers."

Pot Kills Cancer and Our Government Has Known for 36 Years | Garden State Alternative | Medical Marijuana

Pot Kills Cancer and Our Government Has Known for 36 Years | Garden State Alternative | Medical Marijuana: "Below is a repost of an article published on Americans for Safe Access website: www.safeaccessnow.org in November of 2003. The article describes how cannabinoids, the active components of marijuana, inhibit tumor growth in laboratory animals and also kill cancer cells. Then it finishes off by saying that the US government has known for more than 35 years and that the media which would normally go crazy about a cancer cure story like this, doesn’t at all and in fact seem to be burying the story rather than promote it in any way. I for one am amazed at the government’s stance on marijuana and their failed war on drugs, which is more like a war on it’s own country. I guess too many people get rich off of the war on drugs.

Former Green Party MP Nandor Tanczos says most New Zealanders want cannabis law reform of some kind.

He says he is surprised Dr Brash is not calling for the full legalisation of cannabis, a regulated market and taxing the product, as that would seem to be more consistent with ACT's philosophy

Nandor Tanczos says Don Brash tends to go for the more populist type issues and maybe he has recognised drug law reform is a populist issue."

The universally unconstitutional war on drugs : Indybay: "The reversal of the onus of proof in drug-possession cases is incompatible with the rule of law and is therefore unconstitutional in ALL jurisdictions.
In the "war on drugs", the presumption of innocence is not collateral damage. It is a deliberate target: if other people plant drugs on you..., you must prove that your possession of the drugs was unwitting (which you can't). This situation is manifestly incompatible with the rule of law, because the power to convict... is effectively taken from the courts and given to those who are willing to plant evidence. There is no clearer case of a "government of laws" being usurped by a "government of men"."

On September 28, the country’s State Anti-drug Committee will decide whether to allow the cultivation of hemp, currently prohibited in Russia.

Russia was a world leading producer of hemp, used as a source of oil, food, fibers, housing and industrial materials, until 1961 when the Soviet Union ratified the UN Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs which declared cannabis – along with heroin – a highly toxic narcotic.

Russia is currently one of the world’s biggest importers of hemp fibers and oil, the country’s drug control watchdog said in a statement.

Cannabis regulation, born via Harry Anslinger, has never been handled according to law/good faith. His 1937 M.J.

CBD is usually the second most abundant compound found in the plant.
A research team devoted to studying the effects of Cannabidiol (CBD) on the immune system has made a series of breakthroughs that may have uncovered a mechanism of CBD’s actions (Kozela 2009, Rimmerman 2011, Juknat 2011). The team may have discovered the specific genes responsible for some of CBD’s therapeutic effects. This type of research could be a big leap forward.

BioMed Central | Full text | Whole plant cannabis extracts in the treatment of spasticity in multiple sclerosis: a systematic review

BioMed Central | Full text | Whole plant cannabis extracts in the treatment of spasticity in multiple sclerosis: a systematic review: "Background
Cannabis therapy has been considered an effective treatment for spasticity, although clinical reports of symptom reduction in multiple sclerosis (MS) describe mixed outcomes. Recently introduced therapies of combined Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) extracts have potential for symptom relief with the possibility of reducing intoxication and other side effects. Although several past reviews have suggested that cannabinoid therapy provides a therapeutic benefit for symptoms of MS, none have presented a methodical investigation of newer cannabinoid treatments in MS-related spasticity. The purpose of the present review was to systematically evaluate the effectiveness of combined THC and CBD extracts on MS-related spasticity in order to increase understanding of the treatment's potential effectiveness, safety and limitations."

Marijuana: The Illegal Herb That Fights Cancer | THE Weed Blog

Marijuana: The Illegal Herb That Fights Cancer | THE Weed Blog: "Medical marijuana is now a $1.7-billion market in the U.S. This means that sales of medical marijuana rival the annual revenue generated by Viagra, a $1.9-billion business.

What’s more, the medical marijuana market is expected to nearly double in the next five years, and that’s just in the 15 U.S. states where the drug is legal. If another 20 states pass medical marijuana laws, which projections show is possible, the market could grow to $8.9 billion by 2016.

According to MSNBC:

“The cannabis industry as a whole – including the underground black market and medical gray market – generates anywhere from $18 billion to $35.8 billion a year.”"

He has told TVNZ's Q A programme policing cannabis costs millions of taxpayer dollars and clogs up the court system.

Brash, who announces his party's law and order policy today, said he has never been tempted to use marijuana or any other kind of drug, but the reality is the present law is not working.

He said it is estimated there are 400,000 New Zealanders using cannabis "on a fairly regular basis", 6,000 people are prosecuted every year over cannabis and $100 million of taxpayers' money is being used to police this law."

Mixed Messages About Medical Marijuana in Oregon - 420 Magazine

Mixed Messages About Medical Marijuana in Oregon - 420 Magazine: "Medical marijuana is legal in Oregon -- or at least it's supposed to be. After all, the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act permits marijuana to be grown, possessed and used for medical purposes.

Why, then, did prosecutors in Washington County bring charges against the owner of a marijuana dispensary who was, essentially, just doing her job? In August 2011, Kathleen O'Shea Cambron pleaded guilty to two counts of delivery of marijuana and received a sentence of three years on probation.

This article will examine the issue of medical marijuana in Oregon. The issues to be discussed will include not only the state law regarding dispensaries, but also the question of federal enforcement of laws prohibiting the cultivation and distribution of marijuana."

Child rapist to get less time than Pot Growers | Cannabis News - Medical Marijuana, Marijuana News, Hemp, Cannabis

Child rapist to get less time than Pot Growers | Cannabis News - Medical Marijuana, Marijuana News, Hemp, Cannabis: "Prime Minister Stephen Harper is getting tougher on pot growers than he is on rapists of children. Under the Tories’ omnibus crime legislation tabled Tuesday, a person growing 201 pot plants in a rental unit would receive a longer mandatory sentence than someone who rapes a toddler or forces a five-year-old to have sex with an animal.
Producing six to 200 pot plants nets an automatic six-month sentence, with an extra three months if it’s done in a rental or is deemed a public-safety hazard. Growing 201 to 500 plants brings a one-year sentence, or 1½ years if it’s in a rental or poses a safety risk.
The omnibus legislation imposes one-year mandatory minimums for sexually assaulting a child, luring a child via the Internet or involving a child in bestiality. All three of these offences carry lighter automatic sentences than those for people running medium-sized grow-ops in rental property or on someone else’s land."

SF Cops Join LA's Finest In Disputing RAND Study's Findings That Marijuana Clubs Don't Cause Crime - San Francisco News - The Snitch

Which makes it all the more surprising that the policy-think tank released a study this week declaiming that medical marijuana dispensaries cause a decrease in crime, contradicting what many law enforcement officials near and far have been claiming for years.

Law enforcement officials in Los Angeles -- the city from which the study's data originated -- slammed the study as deeply flawed. And when contacted by SF Weekly, a San Francisco Police Department spokesman expressed doubt. "It's hard to track, but [crime] near cannabis clubs is a very common occurrence," department spokesman Officer Carlos M. Manfredi said. "Cannabis clubs have a lot of money and a lot of weed; those things cause a criminal element to gravitate toward [dispensaries].""

Panel Calls War on Drugs a Failure - WSJ.com

Panel Calls War on Drugs a Failure - WSJ.com: "MEXICO CITY—As spiraling drug violence kills thousands in Mexico and police battle gangs for control of Brazil's drug-infested slums, a high-level international panel has concluded that the U.S.-led war on drugs isn't working.

"The global war on drugs has failed," said a report by the Global Commission on Drug Policy released Thursday. The report calls for a frank dialogue on the issue and encourages governments to experiment with the regulation of drugs, especially marijuana.

The 19-member commission draws from a broad political spectrum: former United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan; former NATO Secretary General Javier Solana; and former presidents Ernesto Zedillo of Mexico, Fernando Henrique Cardoso of Brazil and Cesar Gaviria of Colombia—all countries that have faced brutal drug violence."

The cartels are carrying out mass murder, he said. They are a regional threat. And then he dropped his bombshell. If the United States can’t cut demand for drugs, Calderon said, it must look for alternative solutions.

“We are living in the same building. And our neighbor is the largest consumer of drugs in the world. And everybody wants to sell him drugs through our doors and our windows,” the Mexican president said. “If the consumption of drugs cannot be limited, then decision-makers must seek more solutions — including market alternatives — in order to reduce the astronomical earnings of criminal organizations.”"

Most people probably didn’t even know marijuana had DNA, but Coyle, who specializes in forensic botany, has developed a new method for collecting the drug’s genetic fingerprint, making it easy for officers to collect the samples at crime scenes.

“Plant DNA is like the DNA found in humans — it retains its lifelong genetic profile,” says Coyle. “If one person has a suitcase of marijuana and another person has bags of it, we will be able to tell if it came from the same batch,” she said in a news release."

In Law we have what are called "legal fictions." That's a difficult concept to define.

It refers to something that we presume to be true, even though it isn't, because it's necessary to apply other law to a situation. For example you either have or don't have parents.

And you can only have one set. If an adoption takes place the biological parents cease to have any legal relationship to a child and the adoptive parents are completely, 100%, the Childs parents.

We need that in order to deal with all of the parent-child laws and relationships that follow. "

New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly Issues Memo Altering Marijuana Arrests Policy - CelebStoner.com

New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly Issues Memo Altering Marijuana Arrests Policy - CelebStoner.com: "SATURDAY, 24 SEPTEMBER 2011 00:44
In a surprising memo, New York Police Chief Ray Kelly has instructed his officers to not coerce citizens they stop into taking marijuana out of their pockets and thus in "public view," which has led to the city's staggering high pot bust totals over the last 15 years.

“Questions have been raised about the processing of certain marihuana arrests,” Kelly writes. “A crime will not be charged to an individual who is requested or compelled to engage in the behavior that results in the public display of marihuana.” The act must be “actively undertaken of the subject’s own volition.”

Last year, 50,383 New Yorkers were arrested for marijuana possession. The vast majority of those arrests are a result of the police's stop-and-frisk policy. Critics have called for an end to these arrests for years. Recently, members of the City Council sponsored a resolution, joining the critical chorus. In the spring, bills were introduced in the legislature that would strike the language in New York's decrim bill that allows for in "public view" arrests."

Nearly 16 years have passed since California voters enacted Proposition 215, which allows for the use of marijuana when recommended by a physician. Yet during this time, surprisingly little demographic data has been collected on the growing number of Californians consuming cannabis as a state-authorized medicine. Predictably, this dearth of data has fueled allegations from Proposition 215 critics that few Californians using cannabis are doing so for "legitimate" medical purposes. Advocates of the law similarly rely on anecdotal evidence to enforce the notion that the law is working largely as voters intended and is seldom abused. "

As in Canada, marijuana use in Britain is illegal, while tobacco and alcohol use is legal.

NORML.ORG US CA: Study Challenges Claim That Medical Marijuana

NORML.ORG US CA: Study Challenges Claim That Medical Marijuana: "California
-------
PALM SPRINGS - As efforts to open medical marijuana dispensaries have intensified, so has the debate over whether they bring more crime to a community.

But an independent study released today finds no link between marijuana dispensaries and crime.

The Santa Monica-based RAND Corporation analyzed crime rates around the huge number of pot stores and clubs in Los Angeles County, at one point believed to outnumber the Starbucks locations there before officials shut most dispensaries down last year. "

NORML.ORG US CA: State's Apparent Biggest Crop Is No Joke

NORML.ORG US CA: State's Apparent Biggest Crop Is No Joke: "California
-------
Some say jokingly that marijuana is California's largest agricultural crop, and they might be right. Right or wrong, to law enforcement people, it is no joke.

While the vigorous growth of marijuana in California's foothills and on land owned or controlled by the federal government testifies to the state's optimum natural growing conditions, the activity creates none of the pride that officials and citizens feel about the state's 350 legitimate agricultural crops.

Oh The Irony: Speaker Of The House John Boehner Continues To Support Marijuana Prohibition | NORML Blog, Marijuana Law Reform

Oh The Irony: Speaker Of The House John Boehner Continues To Support Marijuana Prohibition | NORML Blog, Marijuana Law Reform: "Unlike Tennessee Congressman Steve Cohen (who favors America having a fair and constitutionally consistent cannabis policy…), the current Speaker of the House of Representatives, John Boehner, simply does not get how hypocritical he is by favoring another 74 years of the failed federal Cannabis Prohibition, while at the same time, being a frequent consumer (and longtime political ally) of far more dangerous and deadly drugs like alcohol and tobacco.

A NORML supporter from Ohio named Todd recently used NORML’s webpage to contact his elected representative in Congress, who just so happens to be the Speaker of the House John Boehner, to encourage him to become a co-sponsor of the Ron Paul/Barney Frank bill to allow states to legalize cannabis for responsible adult use."

Oh The Irony (Part II): Obama The Home Brewer | NORML Blog, Marijuana Law Reform: "Oh to be governed…by hypocrites.

Last week the nation watched President Obama bestow a rarely presented Medal of Honor to former Marine Sgt. Dakota Meyer. News reports indicate Mr. Meyer requested to have a beer the night before with his former commander-in-chief before the formal ceremonies.



The two men were in fact widely photographed enjoying a beer on the White House back porch.

Where did the beer the two men consume come from?

The same news reports reveal that our President has become the first ever home brew resident of the White House, brewing a “White House Honey Blonde Ale”."

RIP - Cannabis Campaigners that we have lost along the road: CLARE HODGES / ELIZABETH BRICE

RIP - Cannabis Campaigners that we have lost along the road: CLARE HODGES / ELIZABETH BRICE: "September 22, 2011
Death of a campaigner from Paul Flynn MP
Clare Hodges has died. She was a splendid campaigner and sent me this moving letter in 1997. Her real name was Elisabeth Brice. She campaigned under the assumed name to avoid prosecution. Unknown-2

She was powerfully persuasive and energetic in spite of the crippling pain of her MS. Among the other activities of this former TV producer was a translation of Noddy books into Latin.

Thanks to her campaigning Sativax is available. It is not natural cannabis but has gone some way to allow cannabinoids to be ingested legally. On one of her visits to the House of Commons Clare brewed her own tea on the Terrace. The staff were puzzled by the little green leaves that were left in her cup."

Amy is a company executive from Cheshire's "gin and Jag" belt. She also grows cannabis in her loft."

Billionaire Peter Lewis: My War On Drug Laws - Forbes

Billionaire Peter Lewis: My War On Drug Laws - Forbes: "Progressive Insurance chairman Peter Lewis has devoted many years and millions of dollars to reforming marijuana policy. Below, in his own words, he tells FORBES why he’ll keep battling drug laws. This story is featured in the latest FORBES 400 issue, newsstand date October 10, 2011.

Our marijuana laws are outdated, ineffective and stupid. I’m not alone in thinking this: Half of Americans believe we should stop punishing people for using marijuana. And not coincidentally, more than half of Americans have used marijuana themselves. I am one of those Americans, and I know firsthand that marijuana can be helpful and that it certainly isn’t cause for locking anyone up."
