Toke Signals Stories of the Week

Willie Nelson Launching His Own Brand Of Marijuana

(Hemp News)

Music legend Willie Nelson, now 81, plans to launch his own signature brand of marijuana called Willie’s Reserve.

According to PR person Michael Bowman, a veteran hemp and cannabis lobbyist who serves as the new brand’s spokesperson, Willie wants the signature cannabis strain to be a reflection of his passions, reports James Joiner at The Daily Beast.

“Ultimately, it’s his,” Bowman said. “But it was developed by his family, and their focus on environmental and social issues, and in particular this crazy War On Drugs, and trying to be a bright light amongst this trail as we’re trying to extract ourselves from the goo of prohibition.”

Georgia: Medical Marijuana Bill Signed By Governor

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed a medical marijuana bill into law on Friday in a ceremony on the Capitol steps.

The bill cleared its final legislative hurdle on Thursday when the Georgia House voted 160-1 to approve a Senate compromise that only slightly tweaked the original House version by state Rep. Allen Peake (R-Macon), reports Bill Hendrick at the Associated Press.

After an emotional debate which had lasted, all told, for two years, House Speaker David Ralston hugged Janea Cox, 33, mother of 5-year-old Haleigh Cox, who has intractable epilepsy and is one of the half-a-million Georgians Peake said should benefit from the new law.

“Some days make it all worthwhile,” Ralston said.

 

Texas: Traffic Stop Could Get Two Men Life In Prison For Marijuana Brownies

(Hemp News)

Two Texas men could be facing life in prison after a marijuana-infused brownies were discovered during a traffic stop Monday afternoon.

Potter County sheriff’s deputies arrested Eli McCarthy Manna, 30, and Andrew Bruce George, 27, after pulling them over on a traffic violation on I-40 west of Amarillo, according to authorities, reports JC Cortez at Amarillo.com.

A deputy got suspicious during the stop and asked for permission to search the vehicle, which was denied, according to authorities. Deputies detained the men and asked for the help of a police dog from the Texas Department of Public Safety.

The dog alerted them to the presence of “drugs” in the vehicle, the deputies claimed, giving them probable cause to search it.

 

D.C.: Thousands Gather To Give, Receive Marijuana Seeds

(Hemp News)

Thousands of people gathered on Thursday for the District of Columbia’s first-ever legal marijuana seed sharing event, with a second giveaway is planned for Saturday.

With D.C. police officers looking on, city residents lined up and then walked away from a bar and restaurant carrying baggies containing marijuana seeds, report Aaron C. Davbis and Perry Stein at The Washington Post.

The seed attendees were taking advantage of Initiative 71, a ballot measure approved last fall by voters which legalized marijuana possession. The line for the marijuana “seed share” snaked around the building, including people of many ages and ethnic backgrounds.

 

Kentucky: Baptists Fight Off Push To Legalize Medical Marijuana

(Hemp News)

Kentucky Baptists may have won a major legislative victory by helping to defeat a measure in the General Assembly that would have legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes, but they managed to give themselves a public relations black eye in the process, showing themselves to both be out of touch with modern medical research, and severely lacking in compassion, as well.

Almost as distressing as the fact that they were able to stop this compassionate legislation in its tracks is the fact that these heaven-dazed idiots were proud of themselves for doing it.

Legislators finished the 2015 session early Wednesday morning without passing a bill which would have made cannabis available for medical purposes.

 

Nevada: First Medical Marijuana Dispensary Prepares To Open

(Hemp News)

The first medical marijuana dispensary to open in the state of Nevada is opening in Reno — but it’ll be awhile before medicine is available to patients. They have to grow the stuff first.

The Sierra Wellness Connection successfully passed local and state inspections, and is ready to begin growing medical marijuana at its cultivation facility, reports KTVN.

Before it can be harvested, medical marijuana grown in Nevada must be tested in an independent lab to ensure it’s safe before it is officially released to cardholding patients.

 

California: Medical Marijuana Prisoner Dr. Marion ‘Mollie’ Fry Has A Release Date!

(Hemp News)

Medical cannabis freedom fighter Dr. Marion “Mollie” Fry, 58, who was incarcerated on May 2, 2011 after more than six years of litigation and three years of appeals, and sentenced to five years in federal prison for “manufacturing and distributing marijuana” in California, a medically legal state, has finally learned of her release date — and it’s Tuesday, March 31, 2015, according to the website Can-Do Justice Through Clemency.

At the time of the raid on her family home, she was growing, along with her husband, Dale Schaefer, 34 plants in a small greenhouse on her rural property just north of Sacramento, medicating from a double mastectomy and subsequent chemotherapy treatments. She was also shearing her harvest with needful patients at no charge.

“We weren’t selling the medical cannabis to my patients,” Dr. Fry said. “We had staff and were charging $10 for delivery only, and that’s a common practice today.”
