Hard economic times have hit Spain just like the U.S. According to a recent report by the Wall Street Journal, Spain’s unemployment rates are nearly 23 percent. But, some people are thinking of new ways of creating jobs which may include farming marijuana.
The people of Rasquera, are exploring the idea of growing pot on government land to bring in revenue and create jobs, the Spanish news agency EFE reports. The town of Rasquera, is reportedly in debt as much as 1.3 million euros. A nonprofit group, called the Barcelona Association of Cannabis Self-Medication (ABCDA), has offered to pay the town hall 36,000 euros to get the project off the ground, with an annual investment of 550,000 euros for costs that would include land rental and security, according to Basque Radio Television.
The nonprofit ABCDA has around 5,000 members, according to EFE, and would lease the land to work toward its goals of therapy and relaxation.
Not everyone is for the idea. Eduardo Gil, chief investigator of the Commissary of Mossos d’Esquadra en Tortosa, told El Periodico, “The penal code leaves no doubt that acts of cultivation, growing or trafficking drugs, or other forms of promoting or facilitating drug use, are illegal.”
50 year old, Robert Goupill, of Milan Michigan has been charges with manslaughter after shooting someone that tried robbing him. Goupill was a medical marijuana patient who grew his own stash. Authorities say Goupill chased two men who tried to rob him and ended up fatally shooting one of them.

Myra Hight, mother of Olympic snowboarder, Elena Hight, has been arrested for being involved in a large marijuana operation in the Buffalo suburb of Hamburg. Hight was found with $77,500 cash during the arrest which investigators believe she drove across the country to collect.
Myra lives in South Lake Tahoe, CA. She was being held on $1 million bail after being charged in Buffalo with federal conspiracy to distribute marijuana. Erie County Sheriff’s investigators announced the arrest Monday, saying they had not wanted to impede their investigation into the operation, which they said reached into Utah, Nevada, California and Hawaii.
“These people were probably dealing in millions of dollars of marijuana,” Senior Detective Alan Rozansky said.
Investigators have no reason to believe Elena Hight had any knowledge of the organization or was involved, the officials said. Hight competed in the 2006 and 2010 Olympics and is expected to participate in the 2014 games.
It’s been almost 3 years since new Jersey became one of the 16 states to legalize medical marijuana, but it looks like it won’t be until the end of the year, at the earliest, before it’s available to patients.
The state has taken longer than expected to launch its program because opposition to dispensaries in towns and villages was more vigorous than anticipated and setting up a highly-regulated system with safeguards against theft and fraud proved challenging, the state’s Department of Health and Senior Services officials said.
The officials said they did not want to make the same mistakes as Colorado and California, where recreational users found ways to buy marijuana through the state system.
“It’s a frustrating program in many ways,” according to Mary O’Dowd, commissioner of the Department of Health and Senior Services. “We’re talking about building a whole new program, from the ground up, for an illegal product.”
The first dispensary to open is expected to be the Greenleaf Compassion Center in Montclair, but it is still awaiting approval from the state. Meanwhile, a dispensary in Egg Harbor was given approval recently at the local level and also is awaiting state approval. Four others are looking for sites and are “moving along,” according to John O’Brien Jr., the new director of the state’s Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana program.
Colorado may be the second state to pass a proposal on this years ballot to legalize marijuana for recreational purposes. Why not? The marijuana laws in place have obviously failed. Colorado voter will decide this fall whether or not it will make it on the ballot.
Monday, The Secretary of State’s Office said that supporters of the legalization initiative collected enough signatures to get their measure before voters, meaning Colorado will join Washington state in putting a recreational pot question on November ballots.
Voters will be asked whether adults older than 21 should be allowed to use marijuana even without a doctor’s recommendation. The measure would allow adults to have up to 1 ounce of marijuana or six marijuana plants. The proposal also allows for commercial pot sales, though cities and counties would have permission to ban marijuana sales if they choose. The plan would also direct state lawmakers to put an undetermined excise tax on pot, with the proceeds going to education.
Colorado considered and rejected recreational pot legislation in 2006. And, more recently, California voters turned back a similar plan in 2010.
Last month the initiative backers fell just short of the required 86,000 signatures when tens of thousands were deemed invalid. But officials said a second attempt allowed under Colorado law left the campaign with more than 90,000 valid signatures.
The debate continues in Colorado on how to measure whether medical marijuana patients are impaired behind the wheel. A bill up for a Senate hearing Monday would say that drivers would be considered impaired if they test positive for 5 nanograms or more of THC, but the debate is whether or not that amount is over or under sufficient. What are your thoughts?
Colorado’s current law states that drivers can’t be impaired by drugs but does not set a THC limit. Pot activists say impairment and THC levels aren’t directly related. Marijuana activists called the 5-nanogram limit “unfair” because they say patients who use marijuana regularly see a gradual build-up of THC levels, even when sober.
The 5 -nanogram limit “is not supported by the science,” argued Michael Elliott of the Medical Marijuana Industry Group, which opposes the bill. Marijuana activists favor instead an education effort reminding patients they cannot legally drive high.
Last year, a similar DUI standard cleared the House but was defeated in the Senate amid concerns from both parties about the lack of agreement on an acceptable blood-level standard. A nonpartisan study committee that looked at the question during the summer and fall could not agree on what the standard should be.
Different states that have already set a legal limit for marijuana have taken different approaches.
Nevada, which allows marijuana use for medical purposes, and Ohio have a limit of 2 nanograms of THC per milliliter for driving. Pennsylvania has a 5 nanogram limit, but unlike Colorado’s proposal, it’s a state Health Department guideline, which can be introduced in driving violation cases. Twelve states, including Illinois, Arizona, and Rhode Island, have a zero-tolerance policy for driving with any presence of an illegal substance.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, peak THC concentrations are present during the act of smoking and they generally fall to less than 5 nanograms within three hours.
Ya, that’s right, another NFL star arrested for marijuana possession. Seem to be teh new trend these days. Nate Collins, with the Jacksonville Jaguars, was arrested in Virginia last week for misdemeanor marijuana possession.
Collins was pulled over on Feb. 23rd by a state trooper for illegal tint. During the stop, the trooper reported smelling the “odor of marijuana” coming from the vehicle.
The trooper reported that Collins gave consent to search his vehicle, and after they searched, troopers recovered what they called a “small amount” of marijuana inside the vehicle. Geller would not give further details on where in the vehicle the drugs were found nor would she say how much marijuana troopers found.
Collins was not physically arrested or taken to jail but he was issued a summons. He was charged with possession or marijuana and cited for the window tint violation.
First Coast News contacted the Jaguars this afternoon for a statement. The team issued this statement: “We are aware of the incident involving Nate Collins and continue to gather information. We have no further comment at this time.”
Former Seattle Seahawks, Leroy Hill, was arrested last Saturday for possession of marijuana. Hill, now a free agent, was pulled over by the Atlanta police and they found less than an ounce of marijuana.
Police were called after an complaint about a marijuana odor. Officers say they confirmed the smell, obtained a search warrant and found partially smoked blunts and marijuana residue inside.
Hill is no stranger to being arrested. He was arrested in January 2009 on a marijuana-possession charge in Georgia and was given 12 months of probation. He also was arrested on a domestic violence charge in a Seattle suburb in April 2010. Hill started all 16 games last season, finishing with 89 tackles and four sacks.
The attorney for free agent linebacker Leroy Hill says charges of marijuana possession in Atlanta have been dropped.
