I dated a heavy anti-marijuana lady once, which was quite funny to my friends because when I was dating her, I was smoking about 1/8 oz a day (from 4:30 pm till about 10:30pm after getting home from work).  What really blew her and her friends away, is that they never pegged me to be a marijuana smoker, she never asked me, I never told her.  Well, after dating for a month or two, word got out that not only did I like to smoke, I was chronic.  She was yelling and screaming the whole time about how i deceived her and how I lied to her, but her best friend was the best, just a priceless reaction.

It went on for about 30 minutes of the same line of questioning

her:'You smoke weed?'
me:'that's right'
h: 'You?'
m: 'me'
h:  'I would never have thought you smoked weed!'
m:  'well, I do.'

Then a few minutes would pass, then she would ask the same questions again.  Apparently, her friend now dabbles a bit in marijuana, and has come to realize that you have to know your limits.  I'm just one of the lucky ones that can blaze a pile of weed and still be functional.  I'll never forget the time where I blazed a spliff with a buddy then drove back to my place, he asked me about an hour after we got to my place 'how did we get here?  I mean, we smoked that spliff, but that was on the other side of town.'  'Yea, I drove us, took us about 10 minutes on the highway...'  'You drove us?  I don't even remember the car ride.'

Faith Logic Passion: I'm not in favor of legalizing marijuana, but unless these dealers were involved in transporting this stuff directly to another state (interstate commerce) than this is WAY out of line for the Feds, Constitutionally.

But, then again, when was the last time the Constitution really mattered in our society?

[2.bp.blogspot.com image 334x420]


Fun fact. Even though we are "legal" we still have idiots growing out of state and transporting up here. My local dispensary was out of product at the end of the week because their guy got busted going across the Oregon/Washington border with his "legal" medicine.

It also appears some of these dispensaries aren't sticking to the program of medical patients only until the board gets the real recreational rules in place.

MythDragon:

Isn't that what you're supposed to do with the needle? As opposed to getting an eyeball, lymphnode, testicle or alveoli cluster? Maybe I just don't know enough 'bout the chronic.

I only stick with safe drugs like crack, which is how I messed the my previous post.


I just skin pop the pot man - it's easier to get the stems back out when you scratch...

Just be careful with that crack man, if you snort it - well, buddy of mine told me about his older brothers girlfriend whose oldest brother snorted some and man, it took a CO2 fire extinguisher to put out his head.  You got to be careful with the drugs man, you really do.

Be safe out there!

Pixel_Jockey: There has to be more to the story here since the article said this was part of a two year investigation. My guess is that this dispensaries were selling to people without medical cards.


Um, no.  There doesn't have to be more to the story.

Federal law trumps State law.  The Feds originally had stated they wouldn't put forth the effort to enforce in states where it was legalized but they changed their tune and did what they did in Wyoming.

BullBearMS: BigNumber12: These raids aren't anomalies happening beyond Obama's control. He's being quite consistent in shoring up Federal power.

Entirely correct.

This is a multiagency coordinated attack.
• The Treasury Department has forced banks to close accounts of medical marijuana businesses operating legally under state law.
• The IRS has slapped dispensary owners with taxes required of no other businesses.
• Prosecutors have threatened to seize the property of landlords and jail for renting to marijuana dispensaries.
• The United States attorney in San Diego has indicated she'll start targeting media outlets that run dispensaries' ads.


I can only speak to the irs tax item.

At the federal level, it is against tax law to deduct expenses from an enterprise that performs any illegal action.

IOW, you have can have no federal deductions what so ever. Hence the unsual burdensome taxes.

*speculation powers activate! Form of hyperbole; shape of DERP!*

As for the banks.... knowingly processing transactions for an illegal enterprise is technically money laundering. Also, technically banks cant knowingly lend money to an illegal enterprise. To enforce any agreement they would have to confess to financing an illegal enterprise which might run them afoul of RICO.

*speculation powers deactivate*

Until a federal law addressing these or a court ruling or a reclassification of marijuana (it is currently classified more dangerous than heroin), it will continue.

The feds will avoid any changes on their end for as long as possible.

Go easy on him. He lost a cousin to marijuana injections. One needle and he died.

Judging by his profile, I'd say he's anti-legalization because it would cut into his profits.

I could be wrong, but I think the schedule is statutory, meaning Congress would have to change it.

But, you're right, the selective raids are purely at Obama's feet.

meanmutton: Considering the vast number of dispensaries that haven't been raided, I'm expecting something more to come out of this -- were they importing from Mexican cartels, perhaps?


I read an article that said the seizures were the result of an investigation begun last year.  The shops were affiliated, and I suspect that they were not following legal guidelines and the Feds wanted to make sure the other dispensaries mind their actions.  This has nothing to do with the Feds ignoring State law, and likely has more to do with the Feds enforcing state law through federal means.  Still an utter waste of time.

Marijuana, scientifically speaking, has never met the criteria to be considered a Schedule 1 drug.  You or I could petition the DEA to have marijuana rescheduled.  However, I don't have the cash to create a super-duper next generation exemplar of the Schedule 3 PATENTED Marinol (THC in a pill!!!!).  Any prez. could work the flourish through FDA to DEA tunneling/arm twisting.  Can't outright legalize without Congress owing to U.S. being signatory to updated Single Convention Treaty (some allies already biatching about States not being chastised by Federal military for their temerity - nothing I'd worry about - would like to hear the howls of producer nations if we were to legalize all drugs of abuse and sell OTC, to adults, at cost (increased manufacturing jobs - cull population of those who - by their own hand - retire from the target pool).

First, I would like the war on drugs to be ended. That said, Pres. Obama can't get Republicans to agree with the healthcare plan that their own think tank outlined. They have delayed his appointments for years and just released their amazing plan to help America: "stop all the President's plans".  And you think he has the  political capital to stop the War on Drugs?

I voted for Pres. Obama twice without regret. I hoped for a change in tone as the 2008 election came and went. The change came in the form of the Republican Party going batshiate crazy.

Its funny how the cultists will excuse any and all behavior of their leader when it contradicts what they have invested so much in.

Obama is the head of the executive branch. Holder reports to him and the DOJ gets its marching orders from the WH. Why do you think no one from Wall St was brought up on charges ? Why do you think only low level leakers are the ones being dragged over the coals when connected DC insiders are free to disseminate TOP secret info to the press when it suits the WH ?


Cultists? Was it the "without regret" that gets me that label? Should I regret voting "sane" over the candidates the GOP offered?

How many of you lied to get a card to get easy access to the drug?

we need to legalize it period, none of this medicinal crap, it's a farking cigarette. the medicinal would just be the bonus.

re: the federal raids;
I could see them (DEA) getting upset if a grower/seller were selling it to the masses without checking for the proper documentation (i.e. medical cards) maybe these raids were related to the farking pot heads abusing the legality? i didn't RTFA so i am unsure.

Lets all cray moar and  blame President Obama for everything wrong with America today, you bunch of sorry sacks of puke, unlike most people I have a heart goddammit.  It's illegal at a farking federal level!!!

This IS solely at Obama's feet.

All of those people work for the executive branch.  All US Attorneys serve "at the pleasure of the President" which means that Obama has the authority to fire any of them who ignore his instructions to have these raids stopped.  How many has he fired?

That's a whole lot of completely useless math.

Obama to head of DEA: "Stop raiding dispensaries in states where it's legal"
Head of DEA: "Ok, sorry boss."


1)  The purpose of the executive branch is to enforce the law.  As long as the law is on the books, refusing to enforce the law would be grounds for impeachment.

2)  This might surprise you, but sometimes dispensaries don't follow state law to the letter.  Which means that even if the dispensary is legal under state law, that doesn't mean that everything going on their is legal.

The profit margin on legal dispensaries is actually very poor, which means that a lot of dispensaries will sell on the black market.  Given that there was a 2 year investigation, this was likely the case.

Correct.

I am all for legalization. I also think the federal laws will change sooner if they are enforced and issues come to a head.

Go forth Obama, seize all the weed, and get people upset enough to enact change. Only with the help of republicans can drug laws change. Let them think a vote for legalization is a vote against Obama, imo :)

What makes a cop any more responsible to violate federal law than you or I?

I know it makes you feel nice and ethical to say cops should what's right and so forth, but I bet you would hate cops doing what they thought was right in situations that you didn't agree with.

Do you have an argument besides 'cops should do what I tell them because my personal ethics are above reproach' to explain what makes marijuana laws a special scenario in which state police officers should interefere with federal investigations?

No, I knew you meant that.  My point is everyone should be aware that if you're on a jury, you don't HAVE to convict even if guilt is obvious.  No judge will ever tell you this, and you'll be excused if you even hint that you know it, but it's your right if you believe the law is wrong.


Can a defense attorney bring up the subject of jury nullification?

Just curious.

Frederick: Just based on my recollection, it seems like over all, the number of raids on dispensaries are way down.



Compared to what?

Obey Wan has been harder on Medical MJ that BushBaby ever was.

This isn't about the ganja - the farking Feds don't give a shiat about weed (well, except that it keeps the cartels running and killing and the prisons full) these are the ASSHATS of the Fourth Centralized Authoritarian Reich, and they do this to biatchslap the uppity States and remind the serfs who's in charge.

My guess is they were growing more than they were allowed to and selling it somewhere other than the dispensary, like out on the street or more likely out of state.

ds615: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

How brain dead do you need to be to not have seen this coming?


Well, the raids aren't too surprising, but there's nothing really funny about it at all.

how old are you?


To be fair I was all for legalizing weed up to the point that I voted to decriminalize it.  This was until I realized that after decriminalizing it in Colorado you can't go anywhere public without smelling the nasty crap.  Go to the park smell weed.  Ride the train smell weed.  There is nowhere other than my home that I can go without smelling it.  I'm 32 clearly in the right age group to be ok with it and I would be if they didn't feel the need to constantly smoke it in public even where cigarette smoking is banned.
