The stakes were high — and scary — at a card game at a community center in South Dakota.

A group of elderly people inadvertently ate a batch of cannabis brownies brought in by a 73-year-old woman who didn’t know her adult son had baked them with THC butter.

The incident happened last Tuesday in Tabor, a town of 423, according to an affidavit obtained by The Smoking Gun.

Police responded to several calls of “possible poisoning” and discovered that all of the patients had played cards at the Tabor community center and were “under the influence”.

Cops arrested Michael Koranda, 43, after he allegedly told them he cooked the illicit products with half a pound of THC butter he bought in Colorado, where recreational cannabis is legal.

Michael Koranda’s mother reportedly took the brownies he baked after he went to bed.

Koranda then went to bed and “his mother unknowingly took the brownies to the card game where several people ate them,” the affidavit reads. He was charged with possession of a controlled drug or substance, which carries up to 5 years in prison, according to the report.

There was no word on the injuries.

Cannabis edibles can have a much stronger effect on users than smoking marijuana. The makers warn that it’s easy to accidentally ingest a crippling amount by overconsuming the tasty treats.

South Dakota voters approved an amendment to legalize recreational cannabis in November, but that referendum was overturned by the state’s high court.

Cannabis remains illegal at the federal level, where it is classified as a Schedule I drug.

THE PLACE DU CENTER CONTRIBUTOR

(The Center Square) – The GOP-led New Hampshire House of Representatives has voted to approve legalizing the growing and possession of marijuana for personal use in the state, but the measure must survive the likelihood of ‘a veto from Governor Chris Sununu.

The House on Thursday approved legislation, which would allow adults 21 and over to own up to three-quarters of an ounce of marijuana and grow up to six plants. The bipartisan measure was passed by a vote of 241-113, which is more than necessary for a veto-proof majority.

“This is really a bipartisan issue with strong and broad support from Granite Staters,” State Representative Mark Warden, R-Manchester, said in remarks ahead of the vote. “The war on cannabis is a war against people. These people are our neighbors and our constituents.

Under the plan, marijuana could be “offered” to others, but could not be sold. Retail jar stores, similar to those in neighboring states, would also not be allowed.

There would also be penalties for public consumption and non-compliance with home growing rules, such as growing pots in an area visible to the public.

Granted, this is not the first time that the 400-member House of Representatives has approved legislation legalizing marijuana. In 2014, the Democratic-controlled House first approved a legalization bill, but it was not passed by the Senate. Similar proposals were tabled at each session, but failed to gain traction.

The state has also licensed medical marijuana dispensaries since 2013, but growing drugs for personal use is still a crime.

Lawmakers approved a bill in 2019 that would have allowed medical pot patients to develop their own supply, but Sununu vetoed it, citing public safety concerns.

In October, the legislature’s criminal justice committee rejected proposals that would legalize and tax marijuana. Republicans who voted against the measure cited their opposition to the taxation of marijuana products.

To date, at least 18 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Territory of Guam have legalized recreational marijuana, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Thirty-six states have medical marijuana programs.

New Hampshire has often been described as a “cannabis island” with neighboring states and Canada allowing for recreational marijuana cultivation and retail sale.

While the Granite State decriminalized possession of marijuana in 2017, recreational cultivation and sale are not permitted.

The House-approved legalization bill now goes to the State Senate for consideration.

Study shows high costs of extreme heat in Phoenix

PHOENIX – Extreme heat is expensive.

That’s the conclusion of a study presented Dec. 6 by The Nature Conservancy, which commissioned a review of the costs of rising temperatures in Phoenix.

Together with infrastructure consultancy firm AECOM, the environmental non-profit organization known for its nature reserves and efforts to protect biodiversity has this time turned its attention to the country’s hottest large metropolitan area.

David Hondula, a former Arizona State University climatologist who now heads the new Phoenix Heat Response and Mitigation Office, said the report would be helpful for cities like his to secure funding for measures to to cool the quarters. He served on the study’s advisory committee.

Phoenix has always been scorching hot, but climate change has made it even hotter, with temperatures in early September still climbing to 111 degrees. Temperatures reached up to 118 degrees during the summer. The city is the fifth largest in the country, with 1.6 million inhabitants.

Those most vulnerable to heat are often found in poor and racially diverse communities, where many households cannot afford the heat waves that are becoming more frequent, widespread and severe. Maricopa County in Phoenix recorded 323 heat-related deaths in 2020,

The extreme heat is already costing residents of the Phoenix metro area $ 7.3 million a year in emergency room visits and hospital admissions for heat-related illnesses, according to the study. Maintaining roads in the metro area costs transportation agencies more than $ 100 million a year as streets and highways warp, shape and crack from high temperatures.

The study concluded that planting enough trees to provide a canopy for a quarter of the desert city and covering all buildings in the area with “cool roofs” made of materials that do not absorb heat could help the city. city ​​to save billions of dollars over the next three decades. .

NEW MEXICO

New rules take effect for the state’s pot industry

Council sends big checks to tribe members

WINDOW ROCK – The Navajo Nation Tribal Council has voted to send checks for $ 2,000 to each qualified adult and $ 600 to each child using $ 557 million in federal coronavirus relief funds.

The council’s vote to send the checks to approximately 350,000 tribal members was approved on Dec. 30 by Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez.

Child tax credit expanded to COVID nearly depleted

It is estimated that 250,000 adults will each receive $ 2,000 and parents or guardians of 95,000 tribal members under the age of 18 will receive $ 600 for each child.

At the same time, Nez approved checks for $ 300 for tribal residents aged 60 and over who have already shown they need more help. The checks will come from nearly $ 16 million of remaining cash that the tribe has in relief funds approved by former President Donald Trump.

Earlier in December, a committee of the council met to consider how to spend $ 1.2 billion in virus relief funds. They discussed spending the money on a large number of infrastructure projects and the $ 207 million payments that Nez had agreed to provide.

Accused of crimes, the sheriff must surrender

BLACKFOOT – Eastern Idaho Sheriff Charged With Threatening Group Of Church Youth With A Gun And Assaulting One Of Its Leaders May Remain In Office But Must Hand Over All His guns to the Idaho State Police.

A judge’s Dec. 29 ruling also requires Bingham County Sheriff Craig Rowland to have no contact with the alleged victims.

Earlier in December, the Idaho attorney general’s office charged Rowland with aggravated bodily harm, aggravated assault and the misdemeanor of displaying a firearm. Rowland did not plead guilty on December 29, his first court appearance on the charges. The first appearances concern procedural matters such as informing people of their rights.

In court documents, investigators from the Idaho Attorney General’s Office wrote that a group of youth from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were participating in an activity on November 9 in which they attended provided thank you notes to members of the congregation. The girls, aged 12 to 16, pasted the notes on the doors of worshipers, then rang their doorbell, running away before they could be seen.

According to court documents, seven of the youth group and an adult leader traveled to the Rowland neighborhood to leave a note for the sheriff and his wife. Members of the youth group and Rowland both reportedly said that after the group left the note, Rowland stopped their car from driving away, pulled the adult driver of the vehicle by the hair and pointed his handgun at her. head, shouting insults at him.

Rowland agreed to take time off shortly after the allegations surfaced in November, but has since returned to work.

Rowland said he had received threats in recent months and was concerned about people coming to his home. In a statement, he denigrated residents of the nearby Fort Hall reservation of the Shoshone-Bannock tribes, referring to the intoxication, calling them “not good people” and saying their proximity was the reason for his actions.

Update: This story originally appeared under the headline “Despite Council Order, People Still Required to Appear in Court for Simple Possession of Marijuana Citations”. Shortly after publication, the New Orleans Police Department announced changes to its simple possession policy, ending the practice of issuing citations for the offense.

The New Orleans Police Department has issued dozens of citations for possession of small amounts of marijuana – forcing people to appear in court to defend themselves – in recent months, despite a new law calling for automatic pardons for the offense.

“Why would you take the time to write the note if you know he’s going to be pardoned already?” Said City Councilor Helena Moreno, who sponsored the simple possession pardon order. “In my opinion, there is no real need for law enforcement anymore.”

On Friday afternoon, shortly after this story was first published, a spokesperson for the NOPD said the department would implement a new policy this weekend that said officers “would no longer issue citations for simple possession ”.

“NOPD has revised our policy covering procedures related to simple possession of marijuana, and a new general order will come into effect on Sunday to comply with a new municipal ordinance,” NOPD spokesman Gary Scheets said in a statement. E-mail.

In August, the New Orleans City Council unanimously passed an ordinance to effectively remove all penalties for simple possession of marijuana in the city by automatically issuing “Pardons” to anyone accused of the crime in August. under city law, which means she wouldn’t. be required to pay a fine or even appear in court.

The law was due to come into force several months ago, on September 15 of last year. But according to public defenders in the Orléans parish, this week there were still dozens of simple marijuana possession cases pending in New Orleans city court, and people in New Orleans were turning up. still present for simple possession charges that arose after September 15.

At this point, it doesn’t look like any potential pardons are being granted at all.

Because the state still prohibits simple possession, instead of legalizing possession in the city’s municipal code – which Moreno said would force police to charge the offense under the more punitive possession law. the state – the order instead stated that anyone who received a subpoena for possession of marijuana would be “immediately pardoned”.

On the same day that city council passed the potential pardon order, it also passed a motion that sought to retroactively pardon every single marijuana conviction or open case since 2010 – which they estimated to be around 10,000 cases in total. But those pardons have yet to be processed, and so far, simple possession convictions still remain in people’s criminal records.

Future pardon legislation has been touted as a smart, albeit somewhat complicated, way to reduce fines, court appearances, and the collateral consequences associated with simple possession charges. These charges fell disproportionately on black residents. While blacks make up about 60% of the city’s population, they account for about 86% of marijuana summons issued by the New Orleans Police Department since 2010.

The new law was also intended to focus police resources on other more serious offenses, eliminating the need for additional paperwork or officers’ court appearances in simple possession cases. Under the order, when a person now receives a subpoena for simple possession of marijuana, it “will be deemed revoked and automatically void without the need for police intervention or appearance in court. the accused ”.

But Catherine Rieder, the guardian of the municipal court for public defenders, said the intention of the order is not being carried out.

“We see a lot of inconsistencies in the implementation of the ordinance and the granting of pardons,” she said in an email. “While we do not know if the NOPD immediately pardons people or if previous convictions are pardoned, we do know that a large number of people are still appearing in court. ”

Ahead of the department’s announcement Friday night that it would withhold issuance of citations for simple possession, Moreno criticized the NOPD for failing to develop a policy around the pardon law, which it called “problematic.” .

“We constantly hear from people in the audience who are incredibly frustrated,” she said. “It’s like, ‘I’m calling the police and like no one shows up, but instead you spend three hours on a potty ticket?”

Although the department has vowed to end tickets for the offense, the department spokesperson told The Lens on Friday that officers will still seize marijuana when they find it.

“Marijuana remains an illegal substance under the revised Louisiana law and our officers are required to seize the marijuana as contraband,” Scheets said. “Once the marijuana is seized, officers still have to take the time to register it and consign it as property.”

Dozens of citations since the law came into force

Rieder, with the Office of Public Defenders, said that since September 15 “about 88 arrests or summons have been issued by the NOPD” for simple possession of marijuana, with no indication to those named that the charges were immediately pardoned or that ‘they would not be necessary. go to court.

“This is not what the legislation was intended to create and create unnecessary interaction in the justice system,” said Rieder. “Unfortunately, New Orleans people continue to face the negative collateral consequences of these lawsuits, and the inconsistency in the implementation of the ordinance is jeopardizing the progress this legislation was intended to make.”

Before the holidays, only 25 of those 88 charges had been dismissed by New Orleans City Attorney Donesia Turner.

“The city attorney’s office has dismissed 25 of the 88 cases in question regarding potential pardons for simple possession of marijuana,” the office said in a statement Monday. “The city attorney’s office has always and will continue to prosecute cases on the basis of the law as it is written.”

The office did not respond to follow-up questions about how exactly they interpreted the order or whether all marijuana cases would ultimately be dismissed. On Tuesday, after The Lens inquired about the open marijuana cases, the bureau dismissed 44 more open simple possession cases, according to public defenders.

But under the order passed by the council, the city attorney should not be required to close the cases at all, as they should already have been pardoned. But so far, there doesn’t appear to be a mechanism in place for this to happen.

Moreno said she was frustrated with both the NOPD continuing to distribute citations, as well as the traffic and New Orleans City Court for not being more proactive in granting prospective and retroactive pardons. .

Chief Traffic and City Court Judge Sean Early last month said he was working with court staff to issue retroactive pardons, but did not answer questions about the role the court in granting potential pardons.

“If they need more advice from me, to tell them how to do it, well, that’s okay,” said Moreno. “We can work on this. But I just wish they’d alerted me early on that there were problems instead of just saying, “This is too hard.” We don’t know what to do.

Moreno said she had a meeting scheduled with officials from the municipal court next week.

“There is no excuse for not following the law, and the law is what the council recently voted on – that anyone charged with the offense of simple possession of cannabis be immediately pardoned,” Moreno said. “It is local law that should be followed by the police and the courts.”

Seriously, the vast majority of you are here. I’m generally on that side too, but I enjoy the hashy flavor of an edible rosin sometimes, and most of these rosin gum makers do a good job of choosing flavors that complement the terpenes in the rosin. Rosin edibles are also made with a solvent-free extract, with some manufacturers even going so far as to partner with the most popular growers in Colorado and list the strains used in production. From that point of view, I’m totally paying the extra money.

However, most people don’t want to taste the weed in their weed, and this is especially true for edibles. Like a cocktail where sweet stuff disguises cheap alcohol, sugar is typically used to mask the flavor, and we just want to smack enough to hit a good buzz. To each his own.

The good ones are mental stimulation, alternative thoughts, heightened sensations, and sometimes anticonvulsant / relaxing and antiemetic (antinausea) properties. While the good effects may outweigh the bad, it is a good idea to study the bad effects and be aware of them in order to properly weigh the good versus the bad, ”says, Dr Luc Palmisano MD, FACEP, CFL1 Assistant Medical Director: Emergency Department California Dignity Health Hospital and CrossFit Health Physician.

Another indication that you might smoke too much is self-sustaining thoughts, says Dr. Whyte. “Drugs have short term benefits, but in the long term they cause more problems than they solve.

“Sometimes it can be uncomfortable when someone is harassing you about a problem and so you can start avoiding that person, however, it can go both ways. That person can start avoiding you,” he explains. Dr Whyte. “People don’t like to be judged and people don’t feel like they’re being judged. We like being around people we have things in common with.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – The smell of marijuana may be a factor police use to justify a warrantless search, but it cannot be the sole basis, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – The smell of marijuana may be a factor police use to justify a warrantless search, but it cannot be the sole basis, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday.

The court said a state police search of a vehicle in Allentown three years ago was carried out only because soldiers smelled marijuana.

“The smell of marijuana on its own is not a probable cause for a warrantless search of the vehicle, but may rather be considered a factor in considering all of the circumstances,” wrote the Chief Justice. Max Baer for the majority.

Soldiers stopped the vehicle after it failed to stop at a solid white line before an overpass and smelled the smell of burning marijuana through a window, Baer said.

Police found a plastic bag containing less than a gram of marijuana next to the front center console, without any markings that would have indicated it had been purchased at a dispensary. They also recovered a loaded handgun under the driver’s seat.

The defendant, Timothy Oliver Barr II, and the driver, his wife, produced medical marijuana cards.

The trial court declared the search unconstitutional and said the evidence it produced could not be used in court, and dismissed the charge of possession of a small amount of marijuana.

The Lehigh County District Attorney’s Office argued that the drug remains illegal for the most part in the state, even though medical marijuana cardholders can legally possess it. In a brief, prosecutors argued that the smell of marijuana “has not lost its ‘incriminating’ smell because of its legality to some,” because it is illegal for most.

The majority of the Supreme Court said there were sufficient grounds to support the trial judge’s decision that the soldiers searched the vehicle based solely on the smell. The majority reinstated the order to suppress the evidence.

In a separate opinion, Judge Kevin Dougherty noted that the marijuana recovered during the research was not in packaging provided by a licensed dispensary.

“When an agent who smells of marijuana also observes its packaging (or lack thereof) and there is no barcode or other identifying information that typically appears on the original packaging of ‘a dispensary, that might be enough to establish probable cause,’ Dougherty wrote.

Once a ‘Marijuana Martyr’ Roger Trenton Davis Hopes to Go Legal This Time | Local news https://remedii.net/once-a-marijuana-martyr-roger-trenton-davis-hopes-to-go-legal-this-time-local-news/ Tue, 28 Dec 2021 03:00:00 +0000 https://remedii.net/once-a-marijuana-martyr-roger-trenton-davis-hopes-to-go-legal-this-time-local-news/ Roger Trenton Davis hopes the marijuana business will finally pay off for him.

Roger Trenton Davis hopes the marijuana business will finally pay off for him.

This was not the case for a long time. In the 1970s, Davis became known nationally as the “Marijuana Martyr” after a Wythe County jury sentenced him to 40 years in prison for possession of approximately 9 ounces of the drug in intend to distribute it.

Now that possession is legal in Virginia under limited circumstances, Davis is trying again.

Vinton’s man wants to start a new business and seeks permission to begin research and development from the Cannabis Control Authority, which was established by the 2021 General Assembly to work out the details of legalization of marijuana.

Davis, 76, plans to apply for a license when they become available in 2023.

Lawmakers have recognized, by voting to allow simple possession of marijuana and home cultivation of up to four plants per household, that black people and other minorities have suffered for decades from brutal and disproportionate law enforcement. .

A good example: forty years in prison – more than what many sex offenders and murderers get – for a 28-year-old man who committed an offense that by today’s standards would likely result in a civil fine of 25. $.

“I got screwed and I know it, so let’s fix it,” Davis said. “They have to catch up. Not just for me, but for the state of Virginia. And especially to blacks.

Under the new law, a social equity program will be put in place to encourage diverse participation in the cannabis industry and to reinvest in communities that have been disproportionately affected.

“It’s not a matter of need or greed,” Davis said. “It’s about uplifting people. “

In a petition filed earlier this month with the Cannabis Control Authority, Davis says his trademark OMM (Original Marijuana Martyr) represents a “demand for social fairness” and should be approved to allow planning for a harvest. ‘about 40,000 marijuana plants.

Disadvantaged citizens would have the option of purchasing the OMM brand through a “sharing cultures” model, Davis wrote.

“The notion of sharecropping may seem archaic to some, but the point is that it is a business model that continues to thrive in today’s world, albeit under different legal terms,” ​​the petition.

Davis said he may make his product available to renters in subsidized housing – which fall under federal laws that still ban marijuana – and people who live in homes with insufficient grow space or other circumstances that practically prevent them from enjoying the four plants that the law allows them to have.

In a recent interview, Davis said that many people who just don’t know how to grow a good toke could benefit from someone like him, who would grow their four licensed plants.

“It’s people like me who have to come out of the woods and help with this thing for it to be successful,” he said.

“Few people have a higher profile in the criminal justice system than I do,” Davis wrote in the petition. “True or false, I have connections. Connections that I would like to use for the greater good.

With the authority’s permission, Davis said he would initiate discussions with community organizations, social agencies and others to help identify potential clients. It could also be addressed to investors.

“Special authorization also provides some level of assurance that the necessary license will be available in 2023,” he wrote in his petition.

In July, shortly after the first phase of Virginia’s marijuana legalization law came into effect, Davis told the Roanoke Times he hoped to use his story – which was featured in the 1970s. through publications like Rolling Stone, High Times and Playboy, and then through more mainstream media – to help get the message across that minorities and low-income people should not be left behind.

Davis said he was encouraged by Governor Ralph Northam, who invited him to Richmond to attend a bill signing ceremony.

“It’s hard to explain what it feels like to move from jail to the governor’s mansion,” Davis said. “It was really an eye-opening experience. “

At the time, a spokeswoman for the governor noted data that shows blacks use marijuana at the same rate as whites, but are three and a half times more likely to be charged.

“Roger Trenton Davis is one of the many people whose lives have been turned upside down by the disproportionate enforcement of marijuana laws – and we felt it was important that he had the opportunity to join us as we put an end to it, “wrote Alena Yarmosky in an email.

When asked if the Cannabis Authority received Davis’ petition and if it had the legal authority to do what he asks, Yarmosky did not respond on Monday.

The law must be enacted by the General Assembly before the retail sale of marijuana can be legalized, effective January 1, 2024.

Governor Northam, a Democrat, will be stepping down soon. There is some uncertainty over what new Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin and a new GOP majority elected to the House of Delegates will do with a law that is half-passed and widely encouraged by Democrats.

Currently, adults are allowed to possess up to one ounce of marijuana. Having up to a pound is considered a civil offense punishable by a fine of $ 25. Possession of more than one pound remains illegal.

While full legalization has yet to take place, Davis said he wasn’t too worried.

“Republicans smoke weed, too,” he said with a smile that appeared frequently in an hour-long interview earlier this month.

“Gov. Youngkin is a businessman, and he’s going to take care of business. I believe he has a desire to be governor for everyone in Virginia. This includes me.

Since his release from prison in 2011, Davis has led a quiet life, working for a construction company in Roanoke and making trekking poles and necklaces in his spare time.

With the repeal of the laws that led to his incarceration half a century ago, Davis has found himself in the limelight. Reporters call him again and groups like the Urban Institute have asked him to speak. He doesn’t overdo it, however.

“I’m not looking for any distinction,” he said. “What I’m looking for is a commercial license.”
