NYPD Brags About Weed Bust That Business Owner Says Is Just Hemp
â€œPrecision policing and relentless follow-upâ€ is how the New York Police Department characterized a recent marijuana bust it bragged about. But the business owner caught up in the case begs to differ, saying the cops simply have legal hemp on their hands. […]
Whatâ€™s more, the packages apparently had been inspected by law enforcement authorities in Vermont before the NYPDâ€™s seizure. A report from the Williston Police Department in that state said it was alerted by FedEx about a possible marijuana shipment.
â€œBoth boxes contained paperwork explaining the shipper as a registered VT Cannabis Hemp grower,â€ said an officerâ€™s report obtained by HuffPost. â€œI advised the company that this does appear to be Legal Hemp and not Marijuana and the police was not going to seize it.â€
By the way, that “precision policing and relentless follow-up” is apparently getting a call from FedEx and arresting people without yet having tested the merchandise.
Since posting about the experience on Instagram and talking to media outlets, Levy said heâ€™s received an outpouring of support and that he plans to take legal action against FedEx and the NYPD.
â€œThey know they fucked up,â€ he said.
I’ve got to admit that I’m enjoying every minute of Sen. McConnell’s humiliation. Who the heck would have predicted that it would be he who got cannabis to de facto decriminalization almost nationwide? Well, there’s only two ways to fix it and one requires shitting on Kentucky farmers after getting their hopes up. ROFLMAO thanks Mitch!
KCSO seizes 10 million marijuana plants in 11 hemp fields in Arvin
Correction: Marijuana Plants Seized story
Nov 2: Seizure of hemp plants in CA, AP reported erroneously that 100 million plants were seized. Authorities seized 10 million plants that were legibly grown legal hemp but THC levels of above the allowed limit.
Police: Hemp plants seized in California were pot worth $1B
Authorities in Central California have seized and destroyed about 10 million plants that were being grown as legal hemp but contained higher-than-allowed levels THC, that gives marijuana its high.
California authorities found and destroyed $1 billion
worth of marijuana plants

CBD to the rescue? Binge drinking and depression are no longer linked according to a study:

Postal Service Unveils â€˜Drug Free USA Foreverâ€™ Stamp Commemorating 1980s Anti-Drug
The United Nations philatelic contribution to drug hysteria includes an amazing array of drug war propaganda tools in the form of pictures on sticky little pieces of paper.
I own a 1918 espionage forgery stamp minted in the US and designed to target Germany. Counterfeit or fake stamps were used to sow fear in the enemy civilian population. Some included authentic looking German stamps except for a tiny skull-and-crossbones embedded in the stampâ€™s artwork. The idea that the enemy had infiltrated the methodical and otherwise ever-reliable German postal system was guaranteed to wear on the Germansâ€™ sense of security.
Too little too late. It wonâ€™t work to preserve the US drug war.

I’m getting over my reticence to enjoy the schadenfreude I get from the inability of these cretins to see that they’re being ignored by the population. I know just how it feels from my 5 years with NORML.
