Drug War Stories: Corralled in Conneticut

in #war4 years ago


Sounds like dude moved from NY to Oregon to join pot market. But was prosecuted in Connecticut. Dude is aged four decades but has been sentenced to 1/5 a decade to cage time for noncompliance. Sounds like dude pleaded guilt in November for conduct in which he and another human chose to grow dope in NY. In July the "authorities" raided the home and found 140 trees of life and commercial scale equipment.

By September police in Oregon raided dudes place out there and found 50 plants and some video about "East Coast Marijuana Growers." Dude asserted he moved west to comply with law, but apparently seems to have fallen on deaf ears.

A NY state bureaucrat asserted dude was not part of government list in which his conduct would not have found him a cage, but instead because he has been denied access to the market that exists anyways he would be doing cage time. Dude had three prior misdemeanors and may have been enhancing his reality for over two decades.

Very interesting society seems to condemn this man for conduct in which no other person happened to be murdered, raped, assaulted or even stolen from. Must wonder what is so blameworthy about this conduct? Unless instead the state apparatus has been coopted against the public good so as to hurt its citizenry for the private gain of a few ruling oligarchs?

say no to drugs

seems like saying no is not working, perhaps we should try policies that help minimize harm?

Just say no to drugs

thanks, your comment is a little ambiguous and could be on any post so beware some people downvote your kind of comment, recommend making it more meaningful about what you found to be good.

the leaves are many uses, such as healing cuts that scratched cuts, even more ...

it;s an aamzing plant and sounds like it has many many uses due to its fiber

I think Dudes although may not have raped any body or murdered any body, the involvement In growing marijuana is prohibited by the state. We all no the effects of marijuana to the health of the citizen. Unless you do not find anything wrong in growing marijuana and selling it . For me I think the growing of marijuana plants is good reason for the police to go after him. Thank you for sharing this post and I appreciate the way you express your opinion on this story even when it is little in contrast with my opinion.

c'est la vie, yea i think state intervention only makes things worse even for actually harmful substances like meth and heroin

Hey blizzo. What are the effects of marijuana on the health of people?

from what i have heard mostly if not entirely positive

Different for all but good for all we are born with an Endocannabinoid system and cannabis feeds it

Just google it

Google has lots of answers from both sides of the debate. I was hoping you might expand on your thinking.

yea
I have never heard of any legitimate evidence of negative effects, especially that would justify coercive state intervention

Ah, there is evidence to suggest that the non-existent CBD levels and the artificially high levels of THC in strains of skunk might be causing some mental health difficulties in adolescent boys. It isn't conclusive, but certainly warrants more study.

yea but i mean cause or symptom? correlation i dont know if that is good evidence?

Cause, it would appear:

https://www.theguardian.com/society/2015/feb/16/skunk-cannabis-triples-risk-psychotic-episodes-study

And there is plenty more. And this discusses how important CBD is:

I am not anti-drugs (especially not anti-cannabis) by any means, and I realise that a lot of smokers won't find it easy to accept. But the evidence is stacking up.

Do your own research, if you are really seeking a balanced view.

I don't get what the big deal is...I personally think weed in not a drug...
In some countrys it's not specified as drug soo well, why somewere its illegal but somewhere legal...
I weed is better than alcahol, like imagine if u drink daily, u are not funcionig, dont go to work and life starts to wall apert, but if u smoke daily it's not a big deal, maybe u are just thinking longer :D

yea, i agree i think weed is much better for most if not all people than alcohol
