Cannabis reform across America: a look at pot legislation in 26 states

Posted on  March 11, 2013 by  News Admin

 The movement to reform our failed cannabis policies has grown tremendously in recent years and months. It's not slowing down anytime soon. Cannabis reform is a mainstream issue, and frankly, there's no denying it. A majority in the county support legalizing cannabis, and 81% support its legalization for medical purposes. On top of this, a majority of states in our country (27 in total) have either decriminalized cannabis possession (14), or legalized it for medical and/or recreational purposes (18). The remaining states are hard at work towards reform, and advocates in the states mentioned above are vehemently trying to improve their situation. For those who have been on the line about getting involved in helping bring cannabis law change, now is absolutely the time to jump in. Below is a breakdown of efforts going on around the country: Alabama: In Alabama, the Alabama Medical Marijuana Coalition has announced that they're working on 5 cannabis-related bills; everything from simple (though substantial) patient protections, to full legalization. The first of these five to be filed, House Bill 315, has been assigned to the House Committee on Health. The bill would provide prosecution protection for patients who possess and cultivate cannabis, as long as they get a recommendation from a doctor, and then a license from the state's Department of Health (which will determine the possession limits). Arizona: In Arizona, Republican representatives are attempting to repeal the state's medical cannabis laws, by putting it, once again, to a vote of the people. Arizona...

Two Women Sue After Roadside Body Cavity Search For Pot

Posted on  January 03, 2013 by  News Admin

 Texas Women Endured Aggressive Fondling of Private Parts In Public Two Texas women are filing a lawsuit after state troopers gave them an aggressive roadside body cavity search last July -- supposedly "searching for drugs" -- which was caught on video. Female state trooper Kellie Helleson is seen aggressively fondling the private parts of Angel Dobbs, 38, and her niece Ashley Dobbs, 24 -- in full view of passing vehicles, reports the Daily Mail. The women said the trooper used the same rubber gloves for both of them. They said Trooper Helleson used her fingers to publicly probe their anuses and vaginas on the roadside. They were stopped by Helleson's colleague, Trooper David Farrell, on State Highway 161 near Irving, Texas, after he claimed he saw one of them throw a cigarette butt out the car window. Trooper Farrell can be heard in the disturbing video asking the women about marijuana, although he failed to find any evidence whatsoever of cannabis in the vehicle. The trooper requested that the women be searched after claiming they were "acting weird." He then tried to "morph this situation into a DWI investigation," the lawsuit states, reports Kevin Krause of the Dallas Morning News. Angel Dobbs passed a roadside "sobriety test," and the women were released after being warned for littering. Helleson irritated an anal cyst Angel Dobbs suffers from during the cavity search, causing Dobbs "severe and continuing pain and discomfort," according to the lawsuit. "Angel Dobbs was overwhelmed with emotion and a feeling...

College Student Opts To Let Jury Decide Marijuana Case

Posted on  October 17, 2012 by  News Admin

  'Zac is willing to go down if he must, but it is going to be after a fight.' ~ Attorney David Sloane A Texas college student has elected to take his chances with a jury following his arrest for possession of marijuana. Possession of under two ounces of marijuana in Texas is a Class B-misdemeanor punishable by up to 6 months in jail and up to a $2,000 fine. On July 13, Zachariah Walker, 25, of Denton, was stopped for an alleged traffic violation by the University of North Texas Police Department. During a subsequent search of his vehicle, officers claimed they found about two grams of marijuana. Walker was immediately arrested and booked into the Denton County Jail. He was later released after posting a $1,000.00 bond. Walker elected to reject the state's October 10 plea bargain offer of 180 days in jail probated for 18 months, and a $600.00 fine; or 70 days in jail without a probationary term or fine. Walker is a member of The University of North Texas student chapter of the National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws (UNT-NORML.)  He has rejected any offers of probation and says "if anybody is going to send him to jail for possession of two grams of marijuana, it is going to be a jury of his peers." According to his attorney, Fort Worth lawyer David Sloane, this is an ideal case to place in front of a Texas jury and call attention to the absurdity of Texas'...
