Texas Sheriff Refuses to Arrest Marijuana Offenders at Federal Checkpoint

NPR- A federal inspection station on Interstate 10 in the West Texas desert earned the nickname “checkpoint of the stars” for all the entertainers who kept getting busted there. In the past six years, Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, Nelly and Fiona Apple were all arrested for possession of marijuana. These days, though, after a decision by a local lawman, everyone from personal pot smokers to medium-size marijuana traffickers can avoid jail. After federal grants used to help pay for housing offenders arrested on drug charges dried up, Sheriff Arvin West of Hudspeth County, Texas, stopped taking any more cases from the checkpoint. He says they occupied two full-time deputies and one-fourth of the space in the county jail. >> Read more >>


POT SMOKING GRANNY CHARGED WITH STATE JAIL FELONY

A 69-year-old woman charged with growing marijuana on her property in Stephenville for medical purposes was arrested Thursday by the Erath County Sheriff's Office. Colleen McCool said deputies picked her up, booked her, then drove her home when it was over. She was released on a personal recognizance bond, meaning she didn't have to post any money. "We asked her to sign an affidavit saying she would not flee the area and would show up for her court date," Sheriff Tommy Bryant said. Bryant said her age and health were a consideration in allowing her to go home. McCool is a longtime advocate for legalizing marijuana. Her home was raided by authorities on Sept. 17 after a DPS narcotics helicopter spotted marijuana plants growing on her property. Deputies seized about 25 plants, weighing more than 4 pounds after they were dried. McCool has been charged with possession of marijuana, a state jail felony. Her husband is also facing similar charges. >> Read more >>

    Status of Medical Marijuana (Cannabis) in Texas.

      Info on Texas and Medical Cannabis 

    Texas Has a CBD-Only MEDICAL MARIJUANA (cannabis) LAW.

    Status: CBD Specific; Law Signed: 2015

    QUALIFYING CONDITIONS: Intractable Epilepsy

    PATIENT POSSESSION LIMITS: Low-THC (no more than 0.5 percent)/high CBD (not less than 10 percent) oil preparations.

    HOME CULTIVATION: No

    STATE-LICENSED DISPENARIES: Yes, up to three licensed facilities.

    CAREGIVERS: No

    RECIPROCITY: No

    CONTACT INFORMATION: Law takes effect September 1, 2015. However, the language of the law calls for a physician’s “prescription” rather than a doctor’s recommendation, as is the case in all other active medical marijuana states. Under federal law, physicians cannot legally ‘prescribe’ cannabis or any schedule I substance (such as CBD). Rather, the federal courts have previously upheld the right of physicians to make oral or written recommendations in support of a patients’ therapeutic cannabis use. Consequently, it remains to be seen whether any licensed physicians will agree to participate in the state’s program.


    An Overview of Texas’s Low-THC Medical Cannabis Bill On June 1, 2015, Gov. Greg Abbot signed SB 339 into law. Known as the Texas Compassionate Use Act, it is intended to allow some qualifying patients to access “ low-THC cannabis ,” marijuana that contains 10% or more cannabidiol (“CBD) and not more than 0.5% tetrahydrocannabinol (“ THC ”). The legislation allows regulated businesses known as “dispensing organizations” to cultivate, process, and distribute low-THC cannabis to certain patients. Learn more >>

    Unlike other states with similar laws establishing limited access to CBD-based medical marijuana products, the Texas law requires that qualified doctors join a physician registry and include information in the registry itself such as the dosage recommendations, means of administration, and the total amount of low-THC cannabis required to fill the patient’s prescription. If issued, the prescription would also order a licensed marijuana establishment to distribute cannabis to the patient. In several respects, the Texas law attempts to mimic the prescription system put in place by federal authorities. Learn more >>

    Places that have decriminalized non-medical cannabis in the United States Places that have decriminalized non-medical cannabis in the United States - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia | Multiple places have decriminalized non-medical cannabis in the United States; however, cannabis is illegal under federal law. Gonzales v. Raich (2005) held in a 6-3 decision that the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution allowed the federal government to ban the use of cannabis, including medical use even if local laws allow it. Most places that have decriminalized cannabis have civil fines, drug education, or drug treatment in place of incarceration and/or criminal charges for possession of small amounts of cannabis, or have made various cannabis offenses the lowest priority for law enforcement.

    Committee Votes In Favor Of Legislation To Reduce First-Time Cannabis Possession Offenses | Members of the House Criminal Jurisprudence Committee on Tuesday, April 23, approved by a 6-3 vote substitute language to significantly reduce marijuana possession penalties for first-time, youthful marijuana possession offenders. House Bill 184 amends minor marijuana possession penalties for certain first-time offenders to a fine-only, Class C misdemeanor. Under present law, the possession of one ounce of cannabis or less is classified as a Class B criminal misdemeanor publishable by up to 180 days in jail and a $2,000 fine. Annually, in Texas some 80,000 citizens are arrested for marijuana violations; an estimated 97% of those arrested and charged for possession alone — not trafficking, cultivation, or sale. House Bill 184 would significantly reduce state prosecutorial costs associated with these tens of thousands of minor marijuana arrests and allow law enforcement resources to be refocused on other, more serious criminal offenses.   >> Learn more>> <<

    Texas, News - Marijuana law reform has reached Texas! Marijuana law reform has reached Texas! - Last update: October 18, 2016 | This voters’ guide was compiled, published, and funded by members of Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy, a broad coalition of organizations, activists, and community leaders dedicated to 1) enacting a comprehensive and compassionate medical marijuana law; 2) removing penalties for adults’ possession of marijuana for personal use; and/or 3) replacing the illicit market for cannabis with a safe, legal, and accountable market. Texas NORML originated the guide in 2012, and we’d like to thank them for helping to put this year’s guide together. Our goal is to help voters make educated decisions when they go to the polls to vote in the Democratic or Republican Primary. Click here to find out where the candidates stand! >>   http://www.texasmarijuanapolicy.org/voter-guide/

    Marijuana policy in the 84th Texas legislative session | The 84th Texas legislative session was historic in the movement to improve marijuana laws in the Lone Star State. All told, there were five bills that would have reduced penalties for possession of marijuana, one of which would have completely legalized access for adults. In addition, there were four bills to provide legal access to medical marijuana. A very limited medical marijuana bill — now the Compassionate Use Program — was signed into law, but is unlikely to function without significant changes. Nonetheless, it is a strong sign that the state legislature recognizes the medical benefits of marijuana for seriously ill patients. A summary of the law is available here. >>   Visit - http://www.mpp.org/states/texas/

    We are currently working to draft and earn support for a bill to be introduced next year that will make the Compassionate Use Program more inclusive. Currently, most patients are left behind. Our goal is to make the program more inclusive by:

      > allowing access for patients suffering from other debilitating conditions;
      > lifting the cap on THC, given its therapeutic value for so many patients; and
      > fixing the flawed language from last year’s bill that unnecessarily puts participating doctors at risk.

    Under the current law, doctors would have to “prescribe” cannabis, rather than “recommend” it, which is how all workable programs operate throughout the country. (More on that here.) To support inclusive access to medical marijuana for patients suffering from debilitating conditions, please contact your state representative and senator.

    Meanwhile, Rep. Joe Moody previously proposed a key bill, which would have replaced criminal penalties for possession of up to an ounce of marijuana with a civil fine of up to $250. Despite a powerful hearing in support of this sensible bill, HB 507, it fell short when time ran out at the end of the session. The bill would have allowed individuals to avoid arrest, possible jail time, and the stigma of a criminal conviction for possessing a small amount of marijuana. We expect a similar bill will be introduced during the next session in 2017. According to a June 2015 poll conducted by the University of Texas and Texas Tribune, 68% of Texans support our efforts to reduce penalties for low-level marijuana possession. A more recent poll conducted by Texas Lyceum found that less than 20% of Texas voters still support prohibition. Most Texans favor marijuana policy reform! Please take a moment to reach out to your representative and senator in support of removing harsh criminal penalties for those who choose a substance that is safer than alcohol. >>   Visit - http://www.mpp.org/states/texas/

    Get involved with Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy | MPP has begun a multi-year legislative campaign in Texas to improve state laws related to marijuana. We’re working in concert with like-minded groups to reduce criminal penalties for possession and to establish a comprehensive medical marijuana program that doesn’t leave many seriously ill patients behind.

    Texas - Resource, Org; xxx Texas medical pot bill for CBD oil heads to Gov. Abbott | AUSTIN, Texas – The Texas House gave final approval Tuesday to a limited medical marijuana bill that would give epilepsy patients access to cannabidiol oil (CBD). The next stop is Gov. Greg Abbott’s desk, marking a milestone that marijuana-reform advocates say is nothing short of historic in Texas. The Republican hasn’t said whether he will sign one of the most talked-about measures in his first legislative session as governor. Here’s a closer look at the plan: WHAT DOES IT DO? | The bill, SB 339, allows patients with intractable epilepsy, whose seizures are not controlled by conventional treatments, to receive low-THC cannabis to help treat their seizures. This would likely be in the form of a cannabis oil extract (CBD oil). The low-THC cannabis could not contain more than 0.5 percent tetrahydrocannabinol — marijuana’s psychoactive component — and must have at least 10 percent cannabidiol. The oil could only be obtained with a prescription and would remain off-limits to patients with other medical conditions. WHERE ELSE IS THIS ALREADY LEGAL? | Fourteen states in the past year have passed similar low-dose cannabis oil laws. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, and Florida Gov. Rick Scott were among the first. Republicans in those states have stressed that the oil would be strictly supervised and wouldn’t be a precursor to legalizing recreational marijuana. >> or Visit - http://www.thecannabist.co/2015/05/19/texas-marijuana-bill-cbd-oil-gov-greg-abbott/35160/

    Texas - Resource, Org; xxx Texas Marijuana Reform is Coming: How Today’s Vote Can Have an Impact - November 4, 2014 | DALLAS, TX — Changing the draconian marijuana policies in Texas is no small task but a coalition of organizations have banded together to reform the Lone Star State: The Marijuana Policy Project, DFW NORML, Progress Texas, Republicans Against Marijuana Prohibition, Mothers Against Teen Violence, Texas NORML, MAMMA, Drug Policy Alliance, SSDP, among others. Texas unfortunately does not have a ballot initiative process like Colorado or Washington. Therefore they are relying on legislators to change the laws, which has not happened despite several bills being filed over the last 8 years. Last session 2 bills were filed by Democrats in the Texas House of Representatives. Representative Elliot Neshtat (D-Austin) has introduced House Bill 594, which would allow for a person arrested for marijuana to enter evidence that their doctor gave instructions that use of the drug could provide benefits for their illness, leading to a dismissal of the charges. If passed, medical marijuana patients could have the charges dismissed if they were able to provide proof that their doctor had recommended marijuana as a tool to avoid symptoms of their illness. >> or Visit - http://www.thedailychronic.net/2014/38059/texas-marijuana-reform-is-coming-how-todays-vote-can-have-an-impact/

    Texas - News: Retired Soldier can't Buy Rifle over 1971 Pot Conviction Retired Soldier can't Buy Rifle over 1971 Pot Conviction - by Dane Schiller, | A retired Army veteran who fired tanks, cannons and machine guns while protecting this nation recently asked the U.S. government for the green light to buy a .22-caliber rifle from a Wal-Mart in Tomball. Permission denied.

    The FBI turned down Ron Kelly's application for gun ownership because of a 1971 conviction for minor drug possession. He was busted with a small bag of marijuana while in high school in North Carolina. As a first-time offender, he was sentenced to a year of probation.

    Two years later, right about the time the U.S. was withdrawing from the Vietnam War and there was a hippie on every corner, he enlisted in the Army. "I went on to serve 20 years," said Kelly, who often wears a camouflaged Army cap over his head of gray hair. "I had a top- secret clearance. It is amazing that they won't let me buy a gun for a misdemeanor 42 years ago."   >> Read more <<


    Witness to Alleged DEA Excessive Force at The Purple Zone Speaks Out

    Texas - Action Item: Purple Zone Raid This is a photo of Arielle Lipsen who was thrown to the ground and hit with the butt of a DEA agent’s rifle. She is now wrongfully being charged with assaulting a federal agent during a DEA raid of her sister’s smoke shop in Texas. Her sister gave the following statement to a local news site:

      “She was having a conversation with a female agent, and trying to give the agents the lock code,” Ilana Lipsen claimed. “She was trying to tell them there was no key, but a code. There were too many officers and about half of them were doing nothing, then this one agent charged at her, threw her, kicked her legs out from under her, and when she was falling, her leg brushed up against his leg. That’s when he said ‘you’re trying to beat a federal agent’ and shoved the butt of his rifle into her neck.” (via BigBendNow)

    We must help get eyes on her story because not only is she being wrongly accused, but her bond restrictions are insane. She said: "Part of the bond restrictions is that my sister retract all her statements from the press and say that I was never assaulted and that she lied."

    There are a lot more details here   >> Read more << This is a thing to scream about. There’s no reason for a federal agent to put his hands on an unarmed, unthreatening citizen. Not only was she assaulted, but now they might actually send her to jail - in an outrageously unconstitutional process! - in order to shut her up, cover up and otherwise punish her AND send a message to all us peasants in general.

    Yeah, we know "WOW". Can they put restrictions like that on her bond?? They won’t let her out unless they tell the press they lied? If you can wrap your brains around that, PLEASE Spread The Word!

    ALPINE - It's the latest break in The Purple Zone raid controversy in Alpine. It all involves allegations that DEA agents used excessive force on the owner's sister. The owner retracted her allegations of the alleged attack. The DEA says it never happened. But in a new twist, a witness has come forward. Sul Ross geology student Nicholas Branson lives in a home behind The Purple Zone. He went to run some errands on the morning of Wednesday, May 7. When he returned around 10:30 a.m., he saw numerous law enforcement vehicles out front.

    "I just figured it didn't have anything to do with me and I tried to walk back into my house and that's when they told me I couldn't go back there," Branson said. He says DEA agents broke his gate and entered his home. He claims the motive was because they thought his residence was part of The Purple Zone. Nicholas says the only business he does with Ilana Lipsen, the owner of The Purple Zone, is buy Red Bulls on the way to class.

    "They told me that was kind of the cost of living where I live. When I asked to see a warrant he said I didn't need to see any [expletive] warrant," Branson said. Nicholas claims agents didn't have a search warrant until almost two hours later. "It's signed at 11:58 a.m. My neighbor was woken up shortly before 10 o'clock with them entering my home," Branson said.

    He says he was forced to wait out front on the sidewalk near his mailbox, when he saw the alleged excessive force take place against Lipsen's sister, Arielle, in front of a tree next door on his neighbor's property. "[The DEA agent] walked up and tried to grab her by the throat and when she tried to step back he threw her to the ground, jumped on top of her, and put a rifle butt in her neck. Then claims she assaulted him," Branson said.

    Nicholas says a shotgun and hard drives were seized from his residence during the process. Just days after these allegations first surfaced by The Purple Zone owner, Ilana Lipsen, she sent out a letter to NewsWest 9 retracting every single word.

    In a statement by the Public Information Officer of the DEA, El Paso Division, they say, "As we have maintained throughout and has now been confirmed by Ms. Lipsen, DEA acted professionally at all times during the execution of the warrant. The allegations against DEA have been recanted and Ms. Lipsen has apologized to DEA and other law enforcement involved for her false allegations."   >> Read more <<

      some HISTORY  

    Medical Cannabis, History - Letter: Medical Marijuana Informational Guide on Medical Cannabis | If you have ever heard of the song, “Lets Go Get Stoned,” as sung by Ray Charles or Joe Cocker, you know the lyrics were referring to getting high or using cannabis aka marijuana. This mind altering drug goes by other names as well; names such as weed, pot, joint, blunt, hash and mary jane are quite common among users. Cannabis is a plant that contains a chemical called cannabinoids or cannabinolidic acids. Another substance that is found in cannabis is THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, which gives the users that “high” sensation. When speaking of marijuana, the actual substance used in creating the high feeling comes from the leaves and flowering tops of the cannabis plant. Marijuana is considered to be a schedule 1 controlled substance today, because of the THC, which can be highly potent, depending upon the concentration factor of the THC.

    1. Since 1996, twelve states have legalized medical marijuana use: AK, CA, CO, HI, ME, MT, NV, NM, OR, RI, VT, and WA. Eight of the twelve did so through the initiative process. Hawaii's law was enacted by the legislature and signed by the governor in 2000, Vermont's was enacted by the legislature and passed into law without the governor's signature in May 2004, Rhode Island's was passed into law over the governor's veto in January 2006, and New Mexico's legislation was signed into law by Governor Bill Richardson on April 2, 2007.

    2.

    Medical Cannabis - Proven : Cannabis is Safe Medicine Proven : Cannabis is Safe Medicine by Ian Williams Goddard | In reaction to medical cannabis access referendums on the ballots in Arizona and California, former presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and George Bush signed a letter stating that they "categorically oppose'' access to cannabis for its many proven therapeutic uses such as the prevention of blindness and epileptic seizures. Their chief concern was that legal medical access would send the message that cannabis is safe. The presidents can, however, lay their safety concerns to rest because the scientific literature overwhelmingly confirms that cannabis is both an effective and safe medicine. The Cannabis Safety Profile. The journal PHARMACOLOGICAL REVIEWS reports that decades of research prove that, "Compared with legal drugs...marijuana does not pose greater risks."

    " I was wrongfully accused of a felony I had no part in. I was denied my right to a trial by jury over it. The DA Val Varney of Red River County pushed a plea bargain on me for five years which I never signed, finally five years later after being summoned to court every month during that time only to have the trial pushed to the next month. Each time the plea bargain was pushed in my face, even after I had countless witnesses one being a jailer that booked the one responsible who gave his confession to the crime and stating I had nothing to with it. They raided my house looking for weapons which I had non and they did it without a warrant! I know this is not the same as what happened to the lady above but I have been looking for help to take care of the corrupt so called justice system we have! We the people need to come together and take our country back from the tyrants that run it! It is no longer for, of or by the people anymore! We need to make it so again, we run this country, not the pricks in the White House!! Countrymen and women we need to pull together and regain control of our country!! The people who we the people pay to protect us forget that they work for us, it's not the other way around!! Let's band together and crush the tyranny running this nation!!!

    " No jail time for pot? Texas lawmakers reconsider marijuana punishment - by Brix Fowler / KENS 5 | Could reducing marijuana punishment save Texas big money? >> Right now in Texas if you are caught with an ounce of marijuana, you'll face up to 180 days in a jail and a fine of $2,000. If House Bill 184, sponsored by Representative Harold Dutton of Houston, becomes a state law you wouldn't get locked up and the fine would be $500. 'It gives us a little ease to know that we're not looking at time if we're caught with marijuana," said Karli Duran of NORML Duran is the co-founder of NORML, or National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. According to statistics cited by NORML when you factor in police protection, judicial and legal services and corrections related to marijuana the bill for Texans is more than $11 billion annually.
