A federal judge of the Eastern District of New York named Jack B. Weinstein says that we will no longer send those under supervised release back to jail for smoking marijuana.
The 96-year-old judge wrote “No useful purpose is served through the continuation of supervised release for many defendants whose only illegal conduct is following the now largely socially acceptable habit of marijuana use."
The case the New York judge was ruling on was of a 22-year-old man name Tyran Trotter who was sentenced to two years in prison plus three years of supervised release for trafficking heroin. When the 22-year-old refused to take a drug test, the Probation Department recommended he be sentenced to another four months in prison.
Judge Weistein thought that there was no reason to believe Trotter hadn't made attempts to better himself or continued using marijuana.
When the passing of The Sentencing Reform Act of 1984, the federal parole programs were abolished and replaced with supervised release. The 'Supervised Release' programs were added to sentences rather than applied for by prisoners and were aimed at rehabilitating those who had been released from prison. The programs placed an emphasis from a transition back to a normal life and gave power to re-sentence from parole board to judges. Individuals were subjected to mandatory drug tests.
Weistein stated that "continuing to enforce bans on cannabis consumption can trap some defendants, particularly substances abusers, in a cycle where they oscillate between supervised release and prison."
The Israeli Knesset, the country's legislative body, is planning to decriminalize marijuana this week with votes. If the law pass, it would replace jail time with civil fines for most citizens who were guilty of marijuana possession.
The Labor, Welfare and Healthy Committee approved the bill on Monday. The final vote will be expected as soon as Tuesday. The new law will impose a fine of 1,000 shekels, which is about $275 US for first-time offenders. The fine would increase to 2,000 shekels for a second infraction. The third offense would be require a fine or community service instead of a criminal charge. The fourth offense would be considered a criminal offense, which be resulted to an arrest.
The law will not apply to minors, individuals with a criminal record and members of the armed forces. Underage minors will be required to complete a drug rehab program.
A member of the Knesset, Meirav Ben-Ari, who also serves on the Labor, Health and Welfare Committee stated about the new law "I definitely hope that the money from the fines will be allocated for the establishment of a fund for education, information, treatment, and rehabilitation of [drug] addicts, instead of taking the money to the state’s funds."
Israeli is very weed-friendly. The Cannabis community in Israeli and activist was hosted a "Big Bong Night" protest outside the Knesset on April 20 (International Weed Day), where activist had weed, food and music to enjoy. Police didn't interfere with the protest. 25,000 citizens received a license from the government to use medical marijuana.
The state of California is facing cannabis problems with the need to destroy over $350 million worth of marijuana worth of marijuana products.
With California legalizing recreational cannabis sales in the beginning of the year, the California Bureau of Cannabis Control gave dispensaries six-months before they needed to conform to stricter regulations on cannabis. The six-month has passed this month on the 1st, and now retailers have to destroy all of their cannabis products that don't meet new regulatory guidelines.
Dispensaries will be responsible for destroying their products.
The United Cannabis Business Association sent a letter to Governor Jerry Brown to state that there aren't enough cannabis testing facilities in the state to handle the quantity of marijuana. There are 31 licensed cannabis testing facilities and 400 licenses dispensaries in the state.
The regulations for retail cannabis include child-resistant packaging, THC-limits for edible and mandatory testing of contaminats.
Businesses that didn't prepare for the big shift in regulations could end up going out of business. Cannabis companies that survive will be able to supply cannabis consumers with regulated cannabis products.
When legal marijuana becomes passed, the pricing of the product will change.
States like Oregon, where marijuana is legal has reduce their prices by selling $5 eighth and $40 ounces. The legalization of marijuana will be affordable for buyers with reasonable prices at different dispensaries.
By 2020, marijuana will be legal so the coast of a gram eighth, ounce or pound will be easy to purchase.
