if i did coke it’d be out of my system in 72 hours. life is unfair.
(NPR) Recreational marijuana is legal in Colorado. But that doesn’t mean residents want the air to smell like a pot rally. Denver is getting more calls to enforce an odor ordinance that can impose a buzz-killing fine on violators. To find them, the city relies on a device called the Nasal Ranger.
And that’s where licensed smell investigator Ben Siller comes in. A member of Denver’s Department of Environmental Health, he’s trained to use an olfactometer to determine if people are breaking laws that protect the purity of Denver’s air.
Siller responds to citizens’ odor complaints — an increasing number of which are tied to the rise of odiferous marijuana grow facilities. A recent Denver Post story about him began this way:
"Ben Siller looked ridiculous on a recent afternoon, standing on a downtown Denver street corner with a giant device clamped to his face sniffing the air for odorous evidence of marijuana."
(Reason) A mother has finally obtained video footage proving that her 22-year-old son died when guards in a Snohomish County, Washington jail ignored his desperate pleas for help. The victim, Michael Saffioti, was serving time after missing a court date for a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge. To make the awful story even worse, Saffioti’s mother alleges that her son was killed by a severe allergic reaction to oatmeal that prison officials erroneously told him was safe to eat and then later covered up. She has spent the past year fighting with the jail to obtain footage that might help explain his death.
The incident began in July of last year. Saffioti turned himself in to the authorities in order to be “held accountable for his legal issues” and was promptly thrown behind bars. He died less than 24 hours later.
As described by KIRO TV:
Around 5:46, a group of inmates arrived to serve breakfast and men began lining up. While others sat to eat, the camera first captured Saffioti at the guard’s desk, holding his tray. Saffioti suffered from extreme dairy allergies and took regular pains to protect himself.
The video shows Saffioti apparently discussing his food [and whether it contained dairy] with the guard, servers and fellow inmates. Eventually, he took a few bites. Within a few minutes, Saffioti was back at the guard desk, using his inhaler. According to the legal claim, he asked to see a nurse. Instead, he was sent to his cell.
Over the next half hour, the video shows other inmates looking in Saffioti’s cell as he jumped up and down. The legal claim says he pressed his call button and was ignored.
A fellow inmate who witnessed the incident claimed that a corrections officer took Saffioti’s inhaler away and accused him of “faking” his sickness.
i have no doubt guards sent him back to his cell and ignored him… if i had that severe of an allergy though i don’t know if i’d eat anything even remotely dairy. like i’d have to eat raw steak or something. this is tragic.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (Gallup) — For marijuana advocates, the last 12 months have been a period of unprecedented success as Washington and Colorado became the first states to legalize recreational use of marijuana. And now for the first time, a clear majority of Americans (58%) say the drug should be legalized. This is in sharp contrast to the time Gallup first asked the question in 1969, when only 12% favored legalization.
Public support for legalization more than doubled in the 1970s, growing to 28%. It then plateaued during the 1980s and 1990s before inching steadily higher since 2000, reaching 50% in 2011.
A sizable percentage of Americans (38%) this year admitted to having tried the drug, which may be a contributing factor to greater acceptance.
Are there even that many people on earth?
i just learned today that you can buy likes.
(CNET) Oregon police have gotten savvy to some satellite surveillance technology: Google Earth.
That’s right, the authorities in the southern corner of that state used Google Earth to nab a man suspected of growing more than his fair share of medical marijuana, according to the Grants Pass Daily Courier.
Apparently, the police caught word that Curtis W. Croft had been bragging about the prodigious weed crops he had been cultivating on his property. Checking out Google Earth, the police saw what looked to be satellite images of rows and rows of plants.
After verifying the crops with an aircraft, the Rogue Area Drug Enforcement Team was able to arrest Croft, who was allegedly growing roughly three times as many plants as he was allowed to propagate. According to the Grants Pass Daily Courier, Croft was arraigned on drug charges and released.
if you’ve never smoked weed or partaken of the flower of the cannabis plant you should do so at your earliest convenience at least once. preferably twice for perspective.
