Part 3 Federal Marijuana Laws, "20 Years and Not More Than Life Imprisonment", Etc!

PART 3 FEDERAL MARIJUANA LAWS: In part 3 we look at some of Title 21, and then take another break, because reading marijuana laws is really boring; or too shocking and upsetting to read the draconian prison terms. No wonder the U.S. Congress got away with making so many laws, they just figure the public goes to sleep trying to read them.

Brattleboro Community Justice Center Executive Director Retires

Brattleboro Community Justice Center, will be retiring in August. Kehnemuyi stepped into the position in August 2015 during a period of significant organizational changes, including new by-laws, a new Memorandum of Understanding with the Town of Brattleboro, and a new Board of Directors. During these organizational changes, Kehnemuyi has overseen the day-to-day operations of the BCJC, providing Restorative Justice programs for the Department of Corrections and the Brattleboro Area community. The BCJC is stronger for his service.

The Board of Directors has begun a search for a new Executive Director to continue and expand the work of the BCJC, which is dedicated to the peaceful resolution of conflict.

Special Vermont Legislature Session June 21, 2017 To Vote Yes Or No To Over-Ride Veto Of Recreational Marijuana Law

Other news wrongly reported that the bill is dead. It is not dead. It is waiting upon the Vermont State Legislature to decide whether or not to over-ride Governor Phil Scott's veto of the recreational marijuana bill. 

I called the Vermont State Legislature 1-802-828-2228 and my question was directed to the Senate Secretary who stated that the June 21 sesson is a session where the legislators vote to over-ride a veto, and that s.22 recreational marijuana is on the list to vote on that day. Don't listen to fake news, no matter how important they tell you they are. Do your own research and make your own phone calls.

Part 2, Federal Marijuana Laws for Governor Phil Scott To Consider This Morning Before His Big Decision To Ignore, Sign or Veto The Marijuana Bill On His Desk!

Today we start off with Title 18 Criminal laws: explosives & marijuana; prisons & marijuana; and then Title 19 international treaties & marijuana. Please keep in mind that changing state marijuana laws does NOT change federal laws which are spelled three different ways in the federal laws: marijuana, marihuana and cannabis.

Previously, in Part 1, we looked at food stamps & marijuana, federal forest land & marijuana, federal immigration laws & marijuana, and U.S. Military law & marijuana.

FEDERAL MARIJUANA LAWS which pre-empt, or "trump" state laws; PART 1.

I want to copy all of the federal marijuana laws and post them, but it is getting rather long, so I will just post what I have so far; and there are a lot more, but rather than you getting bored, just read this much so far, O.K.?

The laws I have copied and pasted here, so far, include laws regarding people who receive foods stamps, people in the U.S. Military, and people who enjoy our national parks. If that's you, you need to know about federal marijuana laws!

How Police In Australia Test Drivers For Marijuana!

How police in Australia test drivers for marijuana!  I saw this in a movie.  I get some really great DVD's at yard sales in the summer.  I just can't wait for yard sale season to start again!   O.K., I don't recall the name of the movie, and I'd have to dig through boxes to find it, but basically it goes like this, sort of:

Two Australian Police Officers at a roadside traffic stop, cleary marked for a driver survey, so cars politely slow down.  When a car comes to a stop, directed by an officer helping to stop cars, the other officer goes to the window (was it on the wrong side of the car?  I can't recall, this was a movie, do they drive on the wrong side in Australia?)
