Marijuana Possession only an infraction soon!
Next year under California state law, possession of under one ounce of Marijuana is nothing more than simple ticket. The maximum cost for possession of under one ounce will be a fine of $100 with no criminal record or arrest required.
Under the law passed by the Legislature and signed by the governor, SB1449, possession of less than an ounce will no longer be a misdemeanor or go on a person's criminal record. Instead, it will be an infraction, similar to a speeding ticket. That has some people wondering whether the infraction will go on a person's driving record and affect insurance rates.
San Diego-Tijuana Drug Tunnel 30 Ton Marijuana Bust
Federal authorities in San Diego and their Mexican Partners have seized and confiscated nearly 30 tons of marijuana from an underground tunnel system that connects between warehouses from Mexico to San Diego. U.S. authorities claim that this is one of the largest pot busts in US history. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director John Morton said the bricks of marijuana were packaged for distribution and would have been worth roughly $20 million if sold on the streets of San Diego.
The Drug Enforcement Administration said the 12 hour operation started Tuesday night when U.S. authorities watching a warehouse followed a tractor trailer as it left the building. ICE agents called in the California Highway Patrol, whose officers stopped the rig near Temecula, California, about 60 miles away. Authorities said they had found 10 tons of marijuana inside the tractor-trailer. The driver, a U.S. citizen and the passenger his Mexican wife, were arrested and will be arraigned in San Diego on Thursday.
Authorities quickly obtained a federal search warrant to enter the warehouse, where they discovered 10 to 15 more tons of marijuana. They also found the opening to the tunnel system that was being used to run the drugs over the border. The length of the tunnel ran the length of six football fields under the border and ended at a warehouse in Mexico. The tunnel had lighting, ventilation and a rail system which has led authorities to believe that this is in fact one of the most organized smuggling systems they have come across in some time.
5 Million Facebook Petition For Obama To Legalize Weed
A Facebook groupgoing by the name of “Normal” organized by the US campaigning organization is aiming to get 5 million members to put pressure on Obama to legalize marijuana. They say that OBAMA was originally for the decriminalization of marijuana but after talking to his advisers he changed his position, one can only think that he was in some sense pressured to change his views and standings.
We just hope that Obama will stand for what he first said and that the freedom of speech is in some sense still there. They suggest that President Obama should instead take the advice of ex President Jimmy Carter; Jimmy Carter stated that "Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself." This quote is right in some sense; penalties for possession should not be for harder than penalties for use or distribution.
Pot activists vow to push legalization again in 2012
The state that gave us medical marijuana would allow pot for recreation. Then came the newspaper articles and the politicians warning us all of a world where stoned drivers would crash cars, doctors would feel drowsy and less coordinated during surgeries and employers wouldn’t be able to fire the high employees.
A day after voters rejected proposition 19, marijuana advocates wondered how they failed in trendsetting, liberal California.
Whatever the reason, activists vowed on Wednesday to push on in California, as well as in states that rejected other pot measures. “Social change doesn't happen overnight”, said Paul Armentano, the deputy director of the National Organization for Repeal of Marijuana Laws. These are very true words and if the pot smokers of the world are to eventually legalize the harmless drug then this is just one milestone in many to come.
