    Gulf War vet sues city of San Diego
    over pot allegations, child abduction

    By Jack Daniel in Follow that story, Medical, News
    Tuesday, August 13, 2013
    Almost exactly two years ago, on August 5th, 2011, the Coronado Police Department received an anonymous tip that Michael Lewis and his wife Lauren Taylor were operating an illegal covert daycare operation, and worse, that they were smoking weed around the children.

    Acting on that tip, officers visited Lewis' home on upscale Coronado Island, and were allowed entrance to the residence by Lewis and his wife. Satisfied that there was no secret babysitting cartel headquartered in the home, officers did discover Lewis' personal stash of pot, for which he promptly provided a valid California doctor's recommendation. What should have been the end of the story was just the beginning of a two-year-long nightmare for Lewis, his wife, and their two kids. More >>

    In a clear cut case of ideology overruling common sense, this lawsuit is another glaring example of the absolute failure of America's war on drugs. And as usual, innocent civilians and kids become collateral damage.

    New Jersey Gov. still hasn't signed MMJ law
    to help sick children, gets extension

    By William Breathes August 9, 2013
    Yesterday was the original deadline for a New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to sign a bill increasing access for medical marijuana for sick and needy children in his state, and here we are today with no signature.

    Thankfully, Christie has been given an extension of sorts until August 19. We say thankfully, but every day that this asshole holds off on signing the bill is one day longer that children have to suffer and pushing the signing back by even an hour is despicable at this point. More >>

    Rhode Island pot tickets increase
    despite decriminalization of marijuana

    By William Breathes August 12, 2013
    It seems that marijuana decriminalization has been a windfall for Rhode Island state coffers.

    Laws making cannabis possession on-par with a traffic tickets were approved and put into law back in April, which some might see as a directive to police to make marijuana possession a low priority. It seems nobody told the police that though, and since April cops have written about 850 marijuana tickets totaling about $110,000 in fines. More >>

    Attorney General Eric Holder
    to announce drug policy changes today,
    medical marijuana likely not up for discussion

    By William Breathes August 12, 2013
    As we told you last week, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is expected to announce some rather substantial changes to federal drug policy this week including dropping mandatory minimum sentencing in some drug cases, early release for non-violent offenders, allowing states to handle more drug cases and, eventually, bi-partisan drug reform at the congressional level.

    According to the Drug Policy Alliance, we can expect Holder's comments sometime today in his remarks to the American Bar Association national convention in San Francisco. More >>

    Ganjawar on the Poor

    "At the end of every shift, one hears officers extolling the virtues of apprehending a 'hype,' 'junkie'or 'druggie.' Since these tools for financial benefit, career advancement, and peer status are no longer valued as people, officers need not trouble themselves with ethical questions."
