Rory Meeks, from Facebook.

Rory Meeks lives a daring life. When he’s not busy dodging a raging bull in the rodeo ring as a rodeo clown and bullfighter, he’s also apparently been busy dodging law enforcement around Jones County, Iowa. That is until April of 2011 when he was arrested for cultivating marijuana.
On Friday, Meeks was convicted in a Cedar Rapids federal court on one count of conspiracy to manufacturing marijuana. During the trial, federal prosecutors argued that Meeks had set up grow locations near corn and soybean fields and other hidden spots and spent all summer going around from location to location tending his crops.

Protect Arizona Patients, Inc.

​Cannajobs, a cannabis jobs service, has announced that they are founding members of Protect Arizona Patients, Inc., a nonprofit organization fighting the state’s refusal to fully cooperate with the will of Arizona voters by licensing medical marijuana dispensaries. Cannajobs said it has contributed financially to the nonprofit to help it file the first lawsuit against Arizona for ignoring the rights of medical marijuana patients in the state.

Arizona voters passed the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act (AMMA) last November, legalizing medical marijuana in the state. But Governor Jan Brewer in May blocked the rollout of the law, claiming clarification was needed about whether state employees would be subject to federal prosecution, as cannabis is still prohibited under federal law.
Gov. Brewer and the Arizona Department of Health (AZDHS) put all dispensaries on hold while they filed a federal lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona seeking clarification about the potential federal response.
