CU students at the campus 4/20 party in 2011.

Last month, after The University of Colorado at Boulder announced that it would be closing campus on 4/20 for the second consecutive year, marijuana attorney Rob Corry (who unsuccessfully challenged last year’s shutdown) said he was exploring the possibility of seeking a permit for a 4/20 event at CU this year as an alternative to filing another request for a temporary injunction. After all, CU was known for their huge — but peaceful — pot protest/party for years.
Now, however, Corry says the permit plan is off the table and he encourages CU students to attend the 4/20 celebration in Denver instead. Denver Westword has the rest.

Back in February, police raided the home of Florida Cannabis Action Network president Cathy Jordan and charged her and her husband Robert with cultivating marijuana. Jordan, who uses cannabis to manage Lou Gehrig’s disease. Thankfully, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi’s office has a heart, and dropped the case because Cathy clearly needs the marijuana for medical reasons. Hopefully this drives a message to Florida legislators who have stalled on a proposed medical marijuana bill this session.

West Virginia medical marijuana users will remain illegal in the eyes of the law thanks to the House of Delegates refusing to allow a floor vote on a proposed medical marijuana bill earlier this week.
Despite nearly two-dozen supporters speaking on behalf of House Bill 2961 before the Health and Human Resources Committee – and not a single person speaking out against it – the chairman refused to move it forward.

New York City police have spend more than 1 million man hours arresting making about 440,000 marijuana arrests since Mayor Michael Bloomberg took office, according to a study released by the Drug Policy Alliance earlier today.
That number could even be higher. The study, conducted by the Marijuana Arrest Research Project, used a two-and-a-half hour average for each arrest and multiplied that by the 439,056 arrests made in from 2002 through 2012.
