The prosecution rested their case after not having proven anything but that law enforcement are experts at reciting how to make butane honey oil. They were to have proven John was making BHO, they didn’t do it. And, there’s no honey oil, no blasted plant material, no used filters, piles of empty butane tanks or lengths of glass tubing to help them either.

The UN must take action to address the clear disparity between their policy and the medical, scientific and legal realities. Cannabis is scheduled in Schedules I and IV of the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs as amended by the 1972 Protocol (the “Single Convention”) which does not recognize the medical benefits. This scheduling status of cannabis was created based on a report created by the Health Committee of the League of Nations in 1935.

image Oppose SB 987 in California: A 'Sick Tax' Against Medical Marijuana Users 120_donna-lambert.jpg original image (327x293) by via Don Duncan
California Senator Mike McGuire (D-Healdsburg) has introduced SB 987, a bill that will assess an additional 15% excise tax on medical cannabis in the state. The new tax will be in addition to the ordinary state sales tax and any local tax patients already pay for their doctor-recommend medicine. SB 987 imposes an unnecessary and unfair burden on medical cannabis patients.

Marty Higgins or Martin J Higgins is a name that is growing notoriety in print and audio media for being a nefarious figure in real estate. He is overly involved in his endeavors, and stoically makes poor judgements based on his rapacious nature and over inflated ego.
