76% of Surveyed Doctors Agree with Medical Marijuana Use

Marijuana DoctorsStudy finds that seventy-six percent of doctors agree to the use of medical marijuana. The study received responses from 1,446 doctors throughout 72 different countries and in 56 different states and provinces in North America. The surveyed doctors were given a hypothetical case about a 68 year old woman with breast cancer that had metastasized (spread) to her chest cavity, lungs and spine. The doctors were asked if they would recommend marijuana tot he patient to help her with her medical symptoms. More than seventy-five percent of the North American physicians approved the use of medical marijuana in the scenario. About seventy-eight percent of doctors outside North America supported medical marijuana use as well.

Marijuana Decriminalization Bill Introduced in New Mexico

A New Mexico State Representative introduced the House Bill 465 last week. Bill 465 would reduce penalties for adults who possess small amounts of marijuana. The proposed bill reduces the penalty for possession of up to 4 ounces of marijuana to a civil penalty while increasing fines and taking away the potential for jail time for any amount up to 8 ounces of marijuana. New Mexico's current laws state that possession of up to 1 ounce of marijuana is a petty misdemeanor crime with fines and possible jail time. Whereas, over 1 ounce and up to 8 ounces of marijuana is a misdemeanor crime with large fines and possible jail time of up to one year.

Montana medical marijuana providers drop for first time

The number of Montana medical marijuana users has topped 30,000 for the first time. But the number of pot providers has dropped in the wake of federal raids on pot businesses and passage of legislation to clamp down on the industry. State health officials say that at the end of April, there were 30,609 registered marijuana users in Montana. That's 3 percent of the state's population. But the state lost 93 providers, called caregivers. There were 4,755 caregivers registered with state at the end of April, compared to 4,848 in March. Several caregivers ceased operating after federal authorities raided 26 locations around the state in March. Others are trying to block a new law that would bar them from making a profit or providing for more than three patients.

LA police move to stem violence in Venice Beach

Police Sgt. Marc Reina checks the weather on his iPhone every morning to forecast what lies ahead on the job at Venice Beach. "Eighty-two and sunny — I know it's going to be a long day," he says. Police are gearing up for especially long days even before summer's unofficial Memorial Day start, as the sun and heat that draw throngs of tourists to one of the city's top destinations also attracts an unsavory element and unusual violence — a shooting and stabbing in recent weeks. Fearing crime could spiral, police have started cracking down on the unruliness that typifies the boardwalk — a 1.5-mile ribbon of asphalt that runs along the sand where the Ringling Brothers-meets-Woodstock ambiance can draw 150,000 people on a summer weekend. Patrol reinforcements are being summoned from other divisions, more undercover operatives are being assigned to infiltrate crowds, and detectives are gathering intelligence via social media. Dozens of people have been arrested for smoking pot and drinking in public, minor transgressions but ones that set the tone of public order on the beach. "People come here from all over the world and we want them to come," said police Capt. Jon Peters. "But clearly, in my mind, this has become a public safety issue. We're taking an aggressive enforcement posture." Policing the funky neighborhood along a scenic stretch of sand and surf has always been a thorny task. The beach and boardwalk have unique sets of labyrinthine regulations, plus an entrenched counterculture that takes pride in pushing the boundaries of law and order, including hurling beer bottles and heckling the cops. Nevertheless, the LAPD division in the area has a waiting list of officers wanting to wear shorts on the job, zoom around the sand on ATVS and pound the pavement on Segway-type vehicles. It takes about six weeks for a new officer to learn the beach beat. Along with Berettas and batons, police are armed with tape measures to check peddlers' adherence to city property lines, and noise meters to detect decibel violators. Since the economy soured, officers have gotten a lot busier dealing with everything from more thefts and transients to complaints about noise and vendor disputes. The increase has come even as overall crime in Venice has trended downward during the past two years, following a citywide pattern. The summer mélange of hucksters hawking two-headed turtles; aging hippies living in garishly painted RVs; activists opposing circumcision; and camera-toting visitors has extended to year-round, driven by peddlers desperate for a buck and families seeking a cheap outing. "People don't have the money to go to other hotspots so they're coming here," said Reina, deftly weaving a police SUV through a sandy slalom course of bikini-clad sunbathers and sand-digging kids. "This is free entertainment." Police are particularly concerned about two outlaw groups that have made Venice a regular hangout. Nomadic bands of youths who used to pass through Venice have taken up residence in alleyways, living off panhandling, theft and resale of medical marijuana from boardwalk dispensaries. South Los Angeles gang members are also increasingly coming on weekends, bringing their rivalries and weapons. Residents have noticed a wave of burglaries, car break-ins, and auto and bicycle thefts in the past year. "You see these punks working the alleys, trying to find open gates, open windows," said Mark Ryavec, president of the Venice Stakeholders Association, who lives blocks from the beach. "It's not your traditional homeless." Police normally beef up Venice patrols in the summer, but last fall the 21 summer-duty positions were funded through the winter. Several gang members were arrested for home invasions, Peters said. The boardwalk has also gotten more chaotic with new, first-come rules for vending spaces. The change has created an anything-goes flea market resulting in fisticuffs, threats and extortion among peddlers desperate for slots. On top of that, vendors block emergency access zones, and unauthorized yard sales pop up that police can't shut down because no signs are posted with the rules. "We can't do anything 'til the signs are up and they know it," Reina said, pointing to the sellers in illegal spaces. "The vending is out of control." Things took a violent turn last month. A man was shot at the boardwalk basketball courts when rival gangs showed up at a "flash mob" gathering promoted by Twitter. The gunfire sparked pandemonium as people scattered for cover. A week later, another man was stabbed at the beach drum circle, a regular jam session with hundreds of people rhythmically banging everything from bongos to buckets. Some locals took the incidents as a harbinger of a rough summer to come, while others simply attributed it to a higher visitor turnout due to a spate of spring sunshine. "They're isolated incidents but getting regular. It was the first real hot weekend," said Matt Dowd, a longtime boardwalk musician. "But the problems here stem back to a lack of attention to Venice's issues." In the wake of the violence, officers have stepped up monitoring of Twitter, called in reinforcements one Sunday from the elite Metro division, and sought help from the major crimes task force. On a recent Sunday after the stabbing, six undercover officers — up from the normal two or three — were sent to mingle in the drum circle, which can draw 600 to 800 cavorting people and has been a persistent headache through the years. "The problem is we can't see what's going on in the crowd," Reina said. "We even had a sexual assault in there years ago." Peters acknowledged arrests are only part of the solution. He's bugging the city to clean up overflowing trash cans in a bid to instill a sense of order and is working to get access to residents' video surveillance cameras. He's even looking at piping calming classical music into the so-called "pagodas" — shaded sitting areas where people congregate — as well as installing better lighting and cameras with speakers that would allow warnings to be issued remotely. Still, highly visible uniformed officers — about 20 comprise a typical weekend detail — are the most powerful deterrent, the officers noted. "If I had my way, I'd have 200 officers down here," Reina said.

As border tightens, smugglers in Arizona look to the air

The Santa Cruz County sheriff’s deputy was patrolling near State Route 82 when he radioed dispatch to say that he’d spotted an ultralight plane dropping a load of possible narcotics in the area of Via Frontera and Ruby Road in Rio Rico. When the deputy and Border Patrol agents arrived at the scene, they found an abandoned vehicle and 1,753 pounds of marijuana. But there were no suspects in the area and the ultralight darted away toward Mexico without a trace. This March 24 incident recorded on a sheriff’s dispatch report was an example of drug smugglers using low-flying aircraft that look like motorized hang gliders to circumvent new fences along the U.S. border with Mexico. The planes, which began appearing in Arizona three years ago, are now turning up in remote parts of California and New Mexico. And in a new twist, the planes rarely touch the ground. Pilots simply pull levers that drop aluminum bins filled with about 200 pounds of marijuana for drivers who are waiting on the ground with blinking lights or glow-sticks. Within a few minutes, the pilots are back in Mexico. “It’s like dropping a bomb from an aircraft,” said Jeffrey Calhoon, chief of the Border Patrol’s El Centro sector, which stretches through alfalfa farms, desert scrub and sand dunes in southeast California. The Border Patrol has erected hundreds of miles of fences and vehicle barriers along the border and added thousands of new agents, so drug smugglers are going over, under and around. As U.S. authorities tighten their noose on land, ultralights are another tack to smuggle marijuana. The Customs and Border Protection agency counted 228 incursions along the Mexican border in fiscal 2010, up from 118 a year earlier, when it began keeping track. There have been 71 since the start of fiscal 2011 on Oct 1. The agency counts an incursion when authorities seize an aircraft or nearby drugs, when a trained source spots an aircraft that is correlated by radar, or when enough people see an aircraft to establish a cross-border flight pattern.   U.S. Border Patrol spokesman Steve Cribby said the agency not have separate statistics on the number of ultralight incidents in the Tucson Sector, which includes Santa Cruz County. Tunnels are another means to circumvent tightened border security. U.S. authorities found 71 clandestine tunnels since October 2008, more than during the previous six years. In Nogales, the Border Patrol reported finding five tunnels in city limits during the federal fiscal year ending Sept. 30, 2010. The Nogales International has already reported eight tunnel discoveries since Oct. 1. Smugglers also use single-engine wooden boats to ferry bales of marijuana up the Pacific Coast. U.S. authorities seized 47 tons of narcotics off of Southern California shores since October 2008. Under Federal Aviation Administration regulations, ultralights weigh less than 254 pounds, carry just five gallons of fuel and fly at a top speed of 63 mph. They are not designed to carry anything other than a pilot. No pilot’s license or certificate is needed, though regulations advise that the aircraft should not be flown over populated areas or in the dark. But drug pilots often zip along at night just above power lines. ‘Like Batman’ Kevin Kelly of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement was with about a dozen agents looking for ultralights under a full November moon in the desert east of Nogales, when he heard what sounded like lawnmower in the sky. The aircraft appeared from the south. “It’s got this big, long wingspan — it’s almost like Batman,” said Kelly, ICE’s assistant special agent in charge of investigations in Nogales. “It’s almost like a glider with a little guy underneath it piloting it.” Kelly watched the ultralight throttle back, get close to the ground and dump bundles packed in duct tape. The pilot picked up speed and wheeled back toward Mexico. The agents waited for someone to pick up the load — 286 pounds of marijuana — but no one came. Ultralights initially flew as far north as the Phoenix area but they now generally stay within 30 miles of the border, said Matt Allen, special agent in charge of investigations for ICE in Arizona. Their small fuel tanks require pilots who fly far north to either refuel or take apart the aircraft and truck it back to Mexico. Pilot Jesus Iriarte was arrested in October 2008 after landing an ultralight with 222 pounds of marijuana strapped to the frame in Marana, Ariz. — nearly 100 miles north of the border — and was sentenced to prison. “Gone are the days when they could come deep into the U.S. undetected,” Allen said. “They really don’t want to be on the ground anymore. They’re dropping it and flying away ... It makes them less vulnerable.” Authorities are having more success capturing drivers who pick up the drugs. Last month, Border Patrol agents arrested Sergio Favela near Douglas, Ariz., as he was allegedly loading 220 pounds of pot into his pickup truck around 3 a.m. A complaint filed in federal court in Arizona says Favela, a U.S. citizen who was captured after a short foot chase, told authorities he was to be paid $1,500. No cash cow Heightened enforcement in Arizona appears to be pushing smugglers to California and New Mexico, some authorities say. In California, authorities have confirmed 30 ultralight incursions since December in Imperial County, a remote farming region with easy access to highways, and another six in the San Diego area. The flights were previously almost unknown in California. The Border Patrol recently began encouraging agents in Imperial County to spend more time outside their vehicles because it is difficult to hear the aircraft over the hum of engines and air conditioners. The planes fly over farms and desert scrub near Calexico, a border town of about 40,000 residents. One pilot who recently eluded capture dropped a load of pot in a warehouse lot in city limits. Still, the amount of pot being ferried on the ultralights pales compared to the multi-ton shipments through tunnels or the volume of seizures from secret vehicle compartments at border crossings every day, causing some authorities to wonder why drug traffickers would go to the trouble. “It makes you wonder how much they’re really making off of this venture,” said William Mataya, a group supervisor for ICE who belongs to an informal group of law enforcement officials in Imperial County that began meeting recently to swap intelligence on ultralights. “They’re really not bringing a lot each time.” The risks can be fatal. A pilot died in November 2008 when his ultralight strapped with more than 140 pounds of marijuana crashed in a lettuce field in San Luis, Ariz. Another pilot who crashed in Arizona was paralyzed from the waist down. Hard to see Ultralights flying low are difficult to see on radars at March Air Force Base in Riverside, where CBP monitors air traffic along the entire border. That means relying on Border Patrol agents and sheriff deputies to be alert for the sound of unusual motors. They almost always get there too late to find the pilot of the planes, which cost $5,000 to $20,000. “Either we get there and it’s headed back, or it could already be back there,” said Tim Jennings, who heads the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Imperial County office.

City attorney sues medical marijuana dispensaries

The Los Angeles city attorney has sued seven medical marijuana dispensaries, restarting a costly and plodding legal process to close hundreds of stores that opened without city approval. The city plans to ask a judge for injunctions to bar the pot shops from storing, selling, distributing or giving away marijuana. It could also seek fines of up to $2,500 a day, as well as a $25,000 fine for violating state narcotics laws. The lawsuits, which name the store and building owners, also aim to force the landlords to oust their tenants. “The city of Los Angeles is sending a clear message that we will no longer allow property owners to turn a blind eye to illegal activity,” City Atty. Carmen Trutanich said in a statement. Trutanich’s office is battling numerous lawsuits filed by dispensaries seeking to remain open. Some dispensaries are now trying to overturn the city’s revamped medical marijuana ordinance, which would cap the number of stores at 100 and allow only those that were in business on Sept. 14, 2007, when the city passed a moratorium to make it illegal to open new stores. The dispensaries targeted by the city are: Cancare Collective, 11120 Burbank Blvd., North Hollywood; Golden Triangle Collective, 2626 S. Figueroa Blvd., University Park; Green Oasis, 11924 Jefferson Blvd., Playa Vista; Natural Ways Always, 10006½ National Blvd., Palms; Rainforest Collective, 12515 Venice Blvd., Mar Vista; The Spot, 3200 Cahuenga Blvd., Hollywood Hills; and Helping Hint, 13614-16 Victory Blvd., Valley Glen. -- John Hoeffel

Nation Reacts To Toddler Given Medical Marijuana

Spokane, Wash. -- The medical marijuana raids in Spokane Thursday brought a strong reaction from patients. Patients like 2 year old Cash Hyde depend on the drug for pain relief. Hyde's dad gave him medical marijuana to help him through high-dose chemotherapy for a stage 4 brain tumor.   "When you have to watch your kid, and there's nothing you can do. Or, you're told there's nothing you can do, it's very hard. You feel helpless, you feel inadequate, you're just kinda lost," said Mike Hyde. He defied doctors to give his son cannabis oil in his feeding tube, and believes it saved the boys life. It helped his son have the will to eat after 40 days, and allowed doctors to wean him off of an anti-nausea cocktail. People across the country commented on Cash Hyde's story. That response is mostly positive. His fight against cancer is finished, but his dad knows that the fight to make medical marijuana accessible is nowhere close. "The only way for medical patients to benefit from cannabis is for us to have it legalized fully. Until it's fully legalized, police and law enforcement will continue to harass and invade patients' rights, and take their medicine away," Hyde said.

Medical marijuana patient restrictions in New Mexico

New Mexico medical marijuana patients are protected by law in many cases. However, it is still illegal to:
  • Possess or use cannabis in a school bus or public vehicle, on school grounds or property, in the workplace of the patient or primary caregiver, or at a public park, recreation center, youth center or other public place.
  • Sell, distribute, dispense or transfer cannabis to a person not registered by the NM-DOH.
  • Obtain or transport cannabis outside New Mexico
  • Possess cannabis on federal property (national parks, federal courthouse, immigration checkpoints, etc)
  • Possess more than the maximum six (6) ounces of usable cannabis, unless they have been licensed to do so.
The law does not provide protection on federal property such as:
  • airports
  • immigration check-points
  • reservations
  • federal parks
AND REMEMBER: It is still illegal to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of cannabis!
