A man has been jailed for more than four years after ÂŁ30,000 worth of cannabis was found at the scene of a house fire in Stafford.

Staffordshire fire crews had attended a house fire on Taplin Close on April 29, 2020, and alerted police of a possible drugs set-up inside. They raised concerns after spotting dangerous electrical wiring running from fuse board along the stairs, Stafford Crown Court heard.

Firefighters extinguished the blaze and officers discovered 60 cannabis plants – and an electricity bypass at the property – during the search. Mark Baglin, from Taplin Close in the town, was arrested and a search of an additional address revealed a bin-bag of cannabis hidden in the loft.

Marijuana legalization one area in which Left doesn't see Biden as ally

crowd biden

Senate Democrats and other advocates for marijuana legalization may not have an ally in the White House despite the popularity of the cause among progressives.

President Joe Biden is a long-standing opponent of marijuana use and of policies that would decriminalize the drug, a stance that has only softened somewhat in recent years.

A group of six Democratic senators sent a letter to Biden on July 6 expressing frustration with his administration for refusing to remove cannabis from the list of Schedule I controlled substances and for failing to issue pardons to all individuals convicted of nonviolent cannabis-related offenses, the latter of which was a 2020 campaign promise.

Where Cannabis Legalization efforts stand across the Country

Legalize Cannabis

Gains in state legislatures slowed down in 2022, but advocates still have the ballot. State lawmakers are still wary of weed.

Last year, four states legalized marijuana through their legislatures. So far in 2022, only one — Rhode Island — has managed to legalize recreational marijuana, even though public support for liberalizing cannabis laws remains at an all-time high.

With most legislative sessions across the country already wrapped up for the year, the results are clear: “Elected officials remain far behind the times,” said Karen O’Keefe, state policy director for Marijuana Policy Project. If it were left up to voters, O’Keefe believes, every state would have some form of legal cannabis by now.

When they called it 'leafy Tubridge Wells', this isn't quite what they had in mind. The leafy Kent town got a bit leafier after pranksters sneaked a cannabis plant into a floral display near the Millennium Clock in Calverley Road.

Martin Steers said he was amazed no one had noticed the plant

It's thought council gardeners watered the plant for weeks before it was spotted, growing in a pot of red and white flowers, by Tunbridge Wells resident Martin Steers last week.

"I had gone up to town first thing in the morning on Wednesday," said Mr Steers, 47. "As I was walking through town I saw the plant. It was about two feet tall and didn't fit in.

While possessing certain amounts of cannabis is now okay, legal stores have not yet opened.

Justice-involved applicants vying for a license can submit their information by the end of August. New Yorkers are expected to be able to purchase legal recreational cannabis by the end of the year.

New Documentary depicts the effects of Legalized Marijuana on Local Communities in CA

local communities

“The Daily Caller” has released a new documentary that depicts the effects of California’s Marijuana legalization on local communities.

The title of the film is called “NARCOFORNIA: How Progressives Sold Out Rural California To Drug Lords
 
A little bit about the film:
“Way up in northern California, two counties fight their battles against drug cartels taking over their community. In Siskiyou County, the fight has pitted Californians against Asian refugees. While in Lassen County, residents scuffle with each other on whether they should embrace legal marijuana to weed out the illegal grows. Both counties’ conflicts highlight California’s legislative and legal failures and their abandonment of rural America.”

Brittney Griner was arrested in Russia for possession of marijuana. She’s not the only athlete to use the drug for medical purposes.

Last week, Brittney Griner testified in front of a Russian court after being arrested for possession of marijuana. She claimed she used marijuana to treat her sports injuries. And she isn’t the only one.

“Because of my injuries that I’ve had over the long career of basketball. From my spine, no cartilage in my knee. I was in a wheelchair for four months. I broke my ankle and I also sprained my knee really bad. So I was wheelchair-bound,” she explained.
