A California assembly has put the kibosh on state law enforcement plans to implement roadside drug breathalyzers.
Assembly Bill 1356 would have allowed police to use devices similar to alcohol breathalyzers, however these devices would detect drugs in drivers' systems instead of alcohol. The bill was introduced by Assemblyman Tom Lackey (R-Palmdale) and was supported by state law enforcement organizations and a broad coalition of roadway saftey organizations.
Three alleged UK drug dealers made a hilarious mess of things, trying and failing miserably to flush their marijuana stash down the toilet when the police came to the door.
Last week, three men were arrested on drug charges after police were met with an unpleasant scene at a London address in which a toilet was found overflowing with what appeared to be marijuana.
San Francisco’s hottest new tech sector keeps getting hotter this week with the launch ofGreenRush — the latest app to fulfill medical cannabis patients’ needs.
Similar to the Y combinator graduate, Meadow, GreenRush aims to give patients the buds they want from the dispensary of their choice, a la the GrubHub food delivery model. Other apps like Marvina and Nestdrop pick the cannabis source for you. The San Mateo-based company’s founder and CEO Paul Warshaw states:
If California legalizes cannabis for adults in 2016, what will become of San Francisco’s world-class medical dispensaries? How about the unlicensed Golden Gate Park gathering on April 20th? What should local recreational taxes be? How should San Francisco handle cannabis tourism? Gourmet canna-dining? Tastings? Conferences? Festivals?
Marijuana and other paraphernalia were found in the rental car of current UFC light heavyweight champion Jon 'Bones' Jones after he fled the scene of a three-car pileup he caused in Albuquerque, NM, at 11:22 a.m. Sunday morning.
Jones allegedly ran a red light, hitting a car with a pregnant woman driving it. He reportedly hit the car on the driver’s side, forcing it into the front end of another car that was stopped at a red light on the street Jones was initially traveling.
Arizona could possibly vote to legalize recreational marijuana use in 2016.
A group backed by the Marijuana Policy Project filed an initiative last Friday that hopes to address the issue at the 2016 election, reports the AP.
The initiative would allow adults 21 or over to possess and grow limited amounts of marijuana. Public consumption would still be illegal.
