To hell with your votes, sheeple. /Obama

I know it's not just Obama. He's just a puppet for a bigger force.

Whatever. He still says, **** your votes people! The people voted. The government says, **** your votes. That's not very democratic is it? That's more of a dictatorship if you ask me.

It's pretty scary the police state is so present now that legally operating businesses are being raided.

Everytime Obama says **** your votes. I'm posting it here. Think about all of those tax dollars being spent to raid legally operating businesses over a plant that helps people.

This is a great example of why your votes do not matter one bit. Only the elite has a say in anything.


http://seattletimes.com/html/localne...sariesxml.html


Cease-and-desist letters were sent to 11 Seattle-area pot dispensaries because they are within 1,000 feet of schools or other prohibited areas, according to the federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

The DEA would not identify the businesses or their precise locations.

Despite Washington state’s new legal recreational-pot law, enacted by voter-approved Initiative 502, all forms of marijuana remain illegal under federal law. A policy statement from the Obama administration is supposedly coming on the new legal-pot laws in Colorado and Washington.

DEA spokeswoman Jodie Underwood said the 11 dispensaries received the same letters that went to 23 local dispensaries last August. She said the letters, dated April 29, did not have implications for Washington’s and Colorado’s new laws.

“DEA enforces federal drug laws, and these letters have nothing to do with any pending legislation or state law. The ballot initiatives in both states are under review by DOJ (the Department of Justice),” she said.

John Davis, a local dispensary owner who did not receive a DEA letter, has a different take. Davis contends the DEA did not send letters to some dispensaries with “egregious proximity to schools, playgrounds and child care.”

He believes the crackdown is related to the new recreational-pot laws.

The federal government “sees too much money and the whole looming specter of recreational cannabis going down,” Davis said. “It has more to do with keeping investors’ enthusiasm under control than any proximity” to schools, he said.

There appears to be investor enthusiasm. Medical Marijuana Daily, an industry journal, reports that a Delaware-based private-equity firm has created a $250 million fund to offer loans and credit to marijuana-related businesses with interest rates from 15 to 28 percent — because of the risky nature of the industry.

The DEA letters warned dispensary operators and landlords that the pot businesses appear to be within 1,000 feet of a prohibited area, which tend to be places such as schools and playgrounds frequented by youngsters. The DEA told recipients of the letters to stop distributing marijuana within 30 days or face property seizure and forfeiture.

“As we continue to identify locations, additional letters will be sent out,” Underwood said.

Underwood said the federal government doesn’t have the resources to go after every medical-marijuana business, so it focuses on high-priority areas such as those near schools.

The DEA sent letters to 63 dispensaries in California’s Orange County last week. But a Department of Justice spokesman and California marijuana activists saw those actions as part of a continuing crackdown in Orange County rather than a signal of new federal policy in Colorado and Washington.

Last week a DOJ spokeswoman in Washington, D.C., responded to questions about legal pot with a terse statement: “The legalization initiatives in Washington and Colorado are still under review by the Department.”

So I guess this is the compromise

Driving under the influence of marijuana is now prohibited in Colorado. Drivers with 5 milligrams or more of THC per milliliter of blood will be considered too high to drive.

That means you can't drive for about 48 hours after a toke.

Ya, real nice. Everybody there is going to get DUI's, that fixes everything.

The Colorado limit is based on active THC, as I understand it.

this MMJ Card-carrying Honolulu Police Officer who was busted growing cannabis, ended up going to federal prison



edit: he got 7 months in prison

HONOLULU —

A Honolulu police officer has pleaded guilty in an indoor marijuana-growing operation, saying it was his girlfriend who got him into the mess that will cost him his job.

Michael Steven Chu said in federal court Thursday that it was his girlfriend who got him involved in growing and selling marijuana. “She was the one and I was helping her,” he said in court, pleading guilty to conspiring to cultivate 48 plants and to possess with intent to distribute 49 pounds of processed marijuana, The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported (http://ow.ly/cIRKg ).

Girlfriend Athena Sui Lee pleaded guilty earlier this week and said Chu wanted to treat her health ailments in a legal way, which is why they had a medical marijuana card. Chu said he planned to sell some of the marijuana and use some for his back.

Chu is on unpaid leave, the Honolulu Police Department said.

They each face maximum five-year prison terms. After Chu is sentenced in December, he will be a convicted felon prohibited from possessing a firearm, making him ineligible to be a police officer.

In the meantime, federal public defender Sean Coutain said, Chu can return to work next week if the court amends the conditions of his release on bond. If he returns to work, he’ll be placed on restricted duty.

According to his plea agreement, Lee arranged for about 14 pounds of marijuana to be shipped from California by Federal Express to the Honolulu apartment where Chu lived and that Chu helped her maintain an indoor marijuana-growing operation.

Federal agents intercepted the package, which contained seven juvenile marijuana plants. While agents were executing a search warrant in April at the apartment, Chu showed up carrying nutrients and materials used for growing, while Lee had a bag with about $12,000 cash in $2,000 bundles.

Agents also found the couple was growing marijuana at a Mililani home, which was the address listed on the medical marijuana card.

prison time for growing a helpful plant. Sad state we live in.

Although, it kinda seems dumb to me to try and fed ex 14 lbs of weed knowing that our government views this plant as a terrible threat to their agenda.

Some weak sauce propaganda from some Mass Medical Society Blog. Did the marathon bombers bomb that shit because they were high??? or experiencing weed withdrawals?

Some people (like a lot of you here) will read that and say 'you know what, that doctor is right, marijuana is totally the reason why this happened! OMG'


http://blog.massmed.org/index.php/20...na-connection/

The news media has reported over and over that the 19-year-old marathon bombing suspect had a penchant for “smoking weed.” Is it possible that abuse of marijuana had anything to do with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s breaking evil? I believe that it may have been one of many factors that contributed to the evil-doing that wreaked havoc on our beloved Boston Marathon.

Numerous acquaintances of Dzhokhar describe the suspected bomber as something of a “stoner.” If he was getting high on a daily or near-daily basis, then he most certainly had THC in his brain at the time of the bombing.

On the other hand, when a chronic marijuana abuser decides to go clean, it can take 6 to 12 weeks for the THC to leave his system. As THC levels drop, chronic users can become anxious and irritable. Perhaps low-grade withdrawal symptoms played a role in irrational decision making.

But if chronic or intermittent pot-smoking remained in the picture until Patriots Day, then perhaps this most profoundly misguided of decisions was influenced by the suspect’s being under the influence. Heavy marijuana users shed IQ points, and don’t think as clearly as they did before they started bathing their brains in THC, which is there around-the-clock because of its ultra-long half-life.

Much of the reporting indicates that Dzhokhar functioned at a higher level in high school than he did in college. If so, marijuana may have played a role in “dumbing him down.” His academics may have suffered, and, in the words of his own uncle, he became, “a loser.” It isn’t easy to tolerate going from being a winner to being a loser. A pot-addled loser, with parents half a world away, might be particularly at risk for coming under the influence of a simplistic, radical ideology, foisted upon him by a domineering older brother.

Although there is a chilling and slightly bizarre quality to some of Dzhokhar’s final Tweets, none of the reported material presented to date suggests what we psychiatrists refer to as overt psychosis. But the kind of disturbed, paranoid thinking sometimes induced by chronic marijuana abuse, may be subtle, and this, too, may have been a factor that contributed to the Patriot’s Day outrage.

Today’s marijuana has a very high THC content and young people who are chronic smokers may experience cognitive dulling and delayed neurodevelopment. Take parents out of the picture, add a radicalized fundamentalist authority figure, and throw in readily available online recipes for small weapons of mass destruction, and voila: Evil incarnate emerges.

Here in Massachusetts, where the medical use of marijuana has been recently approved by the voting public, we physicians should take pause. There is no medical evidence to support prescribing medical marijuana – it is a potentially harmful, addictive psychoactive substance that may contribute to a host of difficulties in the brains of developing teenagers, young adults, and others with risk factors for a variety of psychiatric and addictive disorders.
