A proposal in the state legislature could mean DUIs for drivers who aren’t stoned but who toked a few days ago.It would also hit motorists with even a trace of such prescription drugs as Ambien, Vicodin and even phentermine, a diet drug, with DUI cases if they’re stopped by cops who think they’re impaired.
Medical marijuana supporters are aghast. And they might have good reason to be.

In a stunningly misguided article written by Dennis Thompson for HealthDay.com, and unfortunately republished on WebMD.com, he asserts that society is bound to pay a steep price for allowing various forms of marijuana legalization to be passed into law.
In his hit piece on pot, Thompson warns of the “dark side” of legal weed, claiming that the growing trend we are seeing in marijuana acceptance is directly creating a major uptick in fatal car accidents, and that soon the dangers of drunk driving will pale in comparison to the dangers of driving with weed in your system.

Dennis Delasbour isn’t a good smuggler.

When passing marijuana off to an inmate in custody in a courtroom, one should of course be keenly aware of things like video cameras in said courtroom. But one should also be sure that the intended recipient is not a bumbling moron who will quickly get busted with the contraband.
Apparently Dennis Delasbour didn’t get either of things right, though we do commend him for looking out for a bro in need of a buzz despite the stupidity and riskiness of his actions.

Can you share with your buds a bit more marijuana than you should legally have and get away with it? Can you have weed for, say, a small party and still not have to face deportation for felony “intent to distribute?”
In an amazing sign of the country’s changing attitudes toward pot, the U.S. Supreme Court said sure, why not? Have that cannabis. Don’t worry about being sent back to where ever, even if you’re a “noncitizen:” Dennis Romero at the L.A. Weekly has the full story.

Ten people were arrested yesterday and 8,000 plants were seized in a hydroponic marijuana-grow ring that spanned Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino counties, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced.That’s a lot of weed.
Authorities say one of the ringleaders, a 39-year-old “top lieutenant” from Monterey Park named Andy Tran, was an at-large fugitive. Dennis Romero from the LA Weekly has the rest.

Dr. Dennis Clark is a 40-year physician in private practice and longtime resident of Long Beach, CA but on April 12, 2012, he got no respect from OCSD. Deputy Michael Thalken and five other deputies raided Clark’s home and allegedly told him to “shut up and sit down” when he asked to see if his name was on the warrant. During a two-hour search, the officers confiscated the doctor’s laptop containing patient information, copies of his tax returns and his 2011 Hyundai Sonata, and they questioned him about his views on medical marijuana.
Last November, Clark sued OCSD and Thalken at the Ronald Reagan Federal Courthouse, claiming that the deputies violated his constitutional rights. According to Clark, deputies obtained the search warrant by tricking Superior Court Judge Andre Manssourian, a former prosecutor, into granting the raid. It’s true that Thalken failed to tell Manssourian the home belonged to a licensed physician or that there was no evidence the doctor violated any state law. OC Weekly has the full story.
