Man Gets Sentenced To 20 Years In Prison For A Half Ounce Of Marijuana | The Weed Blog
Louisiana is one of the worst places to get busted with marijuana in the country. Louisiana marijuana laws are so harsh that I can’t imagine being a marijuana consumer there. I live in Oregon where the marijuana laws are very liberal, so maybe Louisiana’s laws seem harsher to me than to other people, but I can’t imagine being sentenced to twenty years in prison for a marijuana offense.
But that is exactly what happened to Corey Ladd. Mr. Ladd was sentenced to twenty years in prison for possessing just 15 grams of marijuana. In Louisiana, if you have been convicted of marijuana possession three times you can get 20 years in prison. It feels weird even typing that out. 20 years in prison, for marijuana. I don’t care how many times you have been convicted for marijuana, or what amount of marijuana you were caught with, there is no reason you should be serving multiple decades in prison for a marijuana only offense. What a waste of tax dollars. What a waste of a jail bed that should be reserved for a deranged, violent person.
Someone really needs to take a hard look at Louisiana’s marijuana laws and see how much money is being wasted. Louisiana’s marijuana laws result in racially biased practices that have a detrimental effect on the State’s minority communities. According to Dissident Voice:
For example, Louisiana arrests about 13,000 people per year for marijuana, 60% of them African Americans. Over 84 percent were for possession only. While Louisiana’s population is 32 percent black, 60 percent of arrests for marijuana are African American making it the 9th most discriminatory state nationwide. In Tangipahoa Parish, blacks are 11.8 times more likely to be arrested for marijuana than whites and in St. Landry Parish the rate of black arrests for marijuana is 10.7 times as likely as whites, landing both parishes in the worst 15 in the country.
If you live in Louisiana, get active. The only way marijuana laws will change there is if you put the pressure on your legislators over and over again, because Louisiana is not an initiative state. Lobby for an initiative process and align with other causes that also would benefit from an initiative system. Then Louisiana will be ripe for an initiative that reform’s the State’s horrendous marijuana laws.
California Cannabis Hemp Act of 2014 – October 1, 2013 The Signature Drive Begins | Marijuana.com
For California’s medical marijuana community and those seeking the legalization of recreational pot consumption…It’s been a long hard road. But with the fast approaching midterm elections, hope springs eternal. As many believe that may well be the year that California passes “The California Cannabis Hemp Act of 2014.”
Under the California Cannabis Hemp Act of 2014 – commonly referred to as the Jack Herer initiative – marijuana prohibition in the state would effectively be terminated. Opening the doors for legal marijuana cultivation on a personal level, in addition to permitting the cultivation of industrial hemp for commercial uses.
As the initiative is currently written, California residents over the age of 21 may cultivate up to 99 plants, possess up to 12 pounds, and be able to purchase recreational marijuana from state sanctioned pot shops.

Please Help Fundraising Effort For Lindsey Rinehart Of Compassionate Idaho
I received this email from Lindsey Rinehart Of Compassionate Idaho requesting help. I feel compelled to help her and her family. I remember seeing their heartbreaking story about a month ago when their kids were taken from them by the CPS.
Remind me to never go to Idaho while they treat cannabis as more of a public threat than guns.
Here is Lindsey’s request for help:
I have that you are kind and that you may be able to help us through your networks. If you can please help me share this, I would greatly appreciate it.
I’m not sure if you have been able to see my gofundme with how busy you have been, but I really need some help please. I have MS and it’s aggressively attacking me right now and it’s only been getting worse. It’s a full on exacerbation. We had a solid plan to get out of ID, have respite in WA for a month, and then move to OR once funds were raised. Instead our place in WA fell through and took me from having 45 days to fund raise to 15. I’m now four days away from that time and do not have the funds to do it, but I am getting closer. I had already given notice to my landlord so we have four days from today to raise the funds. I need to treat with cannabis fast or I’m afraid I’m going to get a new lesion in my brain. All of this can be verified through the links provided in the gofundme. We had International, National, and local coverage to what happened to our family!
I was wondering if you could please share our story through your vast network or perhaps make a donation from you or one of your organizations? We need as much help as we can get. I’m hoping that you will be able too. We’ve been praying for a guardian angel and a miracle for a while.
Once we move we will have better opportunities. My husband already has a great job lined up, and we will be safe once we are there so I can treat my illness.

This is the Change.org petition I launched yesterday to get us off of the CPS registry:http://https//www.change.org/petitions/remove-the-rineharts-from-cps-central-registry-idaho-division-of-family-and-community-services#
If you can help me I will make sure to spread the word, loudly, proudly, and thankfully.
Thank You for Your Consideration,
