Young adults between the ages of 18 and 21 are getting a break in Denver. City Council recently decriminalized possession of up to an ounce of marijuana for young adults.

Last week the Denver City Council passed a measure to decriminalize marijuana possession of up to an ounce for those between 18 and 21. This action gives related petty non-violent offenders a second chance, and helps continue to cut down on overall crime in Colorado.

The penalty now for possessing an ounce or less is $150 for a first offense, $500 for a second offense and $999 for every offense after. Individuals possessing still must be at least 1,000 feet from schools.
Prior to the measure, Violators faced steep fines, probation and up to a year in jail.

The world is indeed taking it's progressive steps towards common sense marijuana laws.

Police in western Massachusetts arrested four people after they discover over a thousand packets of heroin stamped with the words “Obamacare” and “Kurt Cobain.”

State police in Hatfield, Massachusetts report arresting four individuals with possession of large amounts of heroin during a traffic stop.

A trooper was alerted to their car while on a traffic stop in Northampton. The car passed the trooper on Route 91 and he noticed several violations. He was able to catch up and discovered the driver is not licensed and is acting suspicious. That's when the trooper brought out his K9.

The state police K9 found 1,250 bags of heroin Continue Reading...

Arizona's medical marijuana act is still young, but patients are proving there is a medical market. In the past year Arizona patients have consumed about 5,279 pounds of medical cannabis. That's over 2.5 tons sold in a state with a newer and shaky program.

The Phoenix New Times received the report after a request and reported the findings. The report was calculated from December 6th 2012, the opening of Arizona's first state-authorized dispensary Arizona Organix, to December 9th 2013.

There was a reported total of 84,456 ounces sold legally with in that time, and a total of 376,231 transactions Continue Reading...

(New Times) On the list of people we'd probably never expect to come out in support of the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act, we'd probably put an anti-drug crusader U.S. Attorney who was appointed by President Ronald Reagan somewhere near the top of the list.

However, we've seen that man, A. Melvin McDonald, all over the place in the past couple of weeks, giving a glowing review of medical marijuana.
 McDonald, an attorney for the Phoenix law firm Jones, Skelton & Hochuli, has said that fighting the drug war was the "top priority" for the U.S. Attorney's Office when he was appointed by Reagan. Before that, he was previously a prosecutor for the Maricopa County Attorney's Office, and was also a Maricopa County Superior Court judge.

Now -- especially as Republican state Representative John Kavanagh is trying to get voters to repeal the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act -- we noticed that someone's paying for an online advertisement that links to a video of McDonald explaining why he supports medical marijuana. Continue Reading...

Phoenix, AZ- Apparently some original thinkers thought it would be a genius idea to sell their high grade cannabis on Craigslist as "Medical Marijuana" for donations, and they're nothing more then a neighborhood weed dealer.

Craigslist is a great place to sell used appliances and puppies, but some looking to up their clientele are using Craigslist to sell their high quality street marijuana. In an attempt to get into the medical marijuana trade, individuals have been making posts for "Medical Marijuana for Donations", giving lists for prices such as $90 for a quarter-ounce, and $150 for a half-ounce. Some are even negotiating prices.

According to the Phoenix New Times, a review of superior court filings shows that Phoenix police have arrested several dealers over the last few weeks who were discovered after posts were made on Craigslist for sell of marijuana.

34-year-old Joshua Hulse was arrested earlier this month after police replied to a post advertising "Medical marijuana available for donations". A police officer set up a meet with Hulse through text messages, and they met in a Walgreens parking lot. After the transaction was finished, police pull him over and he admitted to meeting patients for these exchanges, arguing he was only taking donations. Continue Reading...

Medical Grade Marijuana
Paperwork was filed Wednesday with the Secretary of State's Office launching a new initiative that would legalized marijuana for all adults in Arizona.

The campaign focuses on allowing voters to vote for laws similar to new marijuana laws in Colorado and Washington, provided it reaches at least the 259,213 signatures they need to put the issue of legalization on the 2014 ballot. Proponents will have until July 3, 2014 to gather them.

The new campaign is being headed by Dennis Bohlke and Robert Clark of Safer Arizona. Bohike as many remember had a similar proposal in 2010 campaigning for adults caught with up to 4 ounces of cannabis to get a far less serious charge with only a $300 fine, but backed down due to the momentum of the medical marijuana initiative.

However now the sights are set higher after witnessing both the success for Arizona's medical marijuana program and the legalization in such states as Colorado.

"The intent of the initiative is to legalize marijuana in Arizona and to treat it as we treat alcohol," said Dennis Bohlke. Continue Reading...


Data from a recent survey conducted by Behavior Research Center shows over half of Arizona residents support full legalization of marijuana. Could Arizona become a marijuana friendly state like Colorado and Washington?

In recent years, nationwide polls have shown the growing support for marijuana legalization. In 2011 a Gallup poll reported that over 50% of Americans support marijuana legalization and medical research. But now the support is growing larger on the state level pushing cannabis politics to be taken seriously.

In Arizona the Behavior Research Center asked respondents if they favored or opposed legalizing the possession of small amounts of marijuana for personal use. Shockingly in this predominantly conservative state, 56% responded they favored the idea and only 37% were opposed. The data was collected from all counties, all age groups and demographics.

“It is perhaps ironic that as support for same-sex marriage and defelonization of marijuana have long been albatrosses which conservative candidates could hang around the necks of some of their moderate or liberal challengers, Continue Reading...




Arizona gets a new tool to fight against dangerous synthetic drugs in the form of a new law signed by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer.

A year after President Barack Obama signed a federal law banning synthetic drugs, Arizona officials strengthen their currently flawed law on such drugs as Spice, K2 and other known synthetic substances.

Brewer announced Wednesday that she is backing the legislation that would expand the state's definition of dangerous drugs, and law enforcement officials are relieved.

The law will also increase the minimum fine of selling or manufacturing dangerous drugs from $1,000 to $25,000. Law enforcement officials say the current law has very little impact on the distribution of Spice and similar chemical substances, because the small fine is worth the business, and minor chemical changes can be made to stay ahead of the law.

The law includes chemical configurations that make up synthetic drugs to the states current definition of dangerous drugs, making it harder for distributors to sell these substances without facing serious charges.

Synthetic marijuana alone still continues to claim lives, which brings to question current laws against real cannabis and it's safe history.

A Florida man is facing charges and possible prison time for growing medical strength cannabis for his severally ill wife.

Robert and Cathy Jordan have been medical marijuana activists for almost 20 years, fighting for patients rights after Cathy was diagnosed in 1986 with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

The couple had tried everything to treat Cathy's illness, and as she got worse they decided to try a more controversial approach, medical marijuana.

“If there was something else I could use, I would use it,” Robert said. “She has used everything they tried to prescribe to her, but nothing works.”

Except the cannabis did, and the Jordan's finally had some hope for their future. Robert began growing high quality cannabis at home for his wife's personal use. Cathy was originally given only about five years to live, but using medical marijuana to treat her illness she has prolonged life almost 20 years.

But Central Florida News 13 reports that sheriff’s deputies raided the couples home last month seizing over 20 marijuana plants, grow equipment and what was left of Cathy's personal medical supply. Now Robert is facing illegal drug charges which include a possible 5 years in prison, all this because he wanted to care for his wife.

“It’s no different than them coming into your house and kicking in your front door and taking your cancer medication,” said Robert. “This is life and death for us. If she doesn’t have it, she starts getting sick. Now what am I supposed to do?” Continue Reading...

State lawmakers from Nevada are on a quest to fix a loophole in their medical marijuana program, patients can get cards from the state, however there's no way to legally get it.

According to CBS-5 Phoenix, Nevada state officials toured Arizona Organix in Glendale Friday on a mission to gain insight into what could be done to fix the silver state's flawed program.

"You can get cards from the state," said Nevada State Senator Tick Segerblom. "If you know how to do it, you can grow it. But, the reality is, you can't purchase it. We wanted to come somewhere very small, very tightly regulated and learn first-hand how it works."

Five Nevada senators and an assemblywoman met with Bill Myer, co-owner of Arizona Organix, to discuss the ins, outs and legal hurtles of Arizona's medical marijuana system. The officials feel the Arizona standard and the well managed state dispensary can significantly help in finding a solution to their states problem.

Myer told CBS-5 he's honored other states consider his dispensary the current gold standard, and he was more then glad to help.

Nevada officials begin voting on dispensary bills in April. Segerblom said he hopes to see dispensaries open in Nevada within six months if his bill passes.

Nevada voters approved a medical marijuana amendment back in 2000.
