PART 4 Federal Marijuana Laws & Demonstration & Protest June 21 & June 22 In Montpelier


PART 4 FEDERAL MARIJUANA LAWS
Law Library of Congress https://www.loc.gov/
http://uscode.house.gov/browse.xhtml
Now we will read more federal marijuana laws, and this time we will continue where we left off in Title 21 United States Code.

How can Governor Phil Scott call himself a "Republican" when he wastes taxpayer dollars by enforcing state laws which merely duplicate federal laws and burden the taxpayers? What kind of "Republican" is that?

Remember, you can go demonstrate to your state senators and state representatives if you want them to vote against Governor Phil Scott's veto of recreational marijuana by making your own protest demonstration signs and stand on the state house lawn and hold them up on June 21 and June 22, 2017 during the legislative veto session on those days. Get their attention, wear flowers in your hair!Go early to catch their attention on their way in to the building!

to distribute or dispense a controlled substance in violation of section 829 of this title;

not authorized by his registration to another registrant or other authorized person
or to manufacture a controlled substance not authorized by his registration;

subchapter or subchapter II;
(6) to refuse any entry into any premises or inspection authorized by this subchapter or subchapter II;
(7) to remove, break, injure, or deface a seal placed upon controlled substances pursuant
to section 824(f) or 881 of this title or to remove or dispose of substances so placed under seal;
(8) to use, to his own advantage, or to reveal, other than to duly authorized officers or employees
of the United States, or to the courts when relevant in any judicial proceeding under this subchapter
or subchapter II, any information acquired in the course of an inspection authorized by this subchapter
concerning any method or process which as a trade secret is entitled to protection, or to use to his
own advantage or reveal (other than as authorized by section 830 of this title) any information that
is confidential under such section;
(9) who is a regulated person to engage in a regulated transaction without obtaining the identification
required by 830(a)(3) of this title.1
(10) negligently to fail to keep a record or make a report under section 830 of this title or negligently
to fail to self-certify as required under section 830 of this title;
(11) to distribute a laboratory supply to a person who uses, or attempts to use, that laboratory supply

subchapter II, with reckless disregard for the illegal uses to which such a laboratory supply will be put;
(12) who is a regulated seller, or a distributor required to submit reports under subsection (b)(3) of
section 830 of this title-
(A) to sell at retail a scheduled listed chemical product in violation of paragraph (1) of subsection (d)
of such section, knowing at the time of the transaction involved (independent of consulting the logbook
under subsection (e)(1)(A)(iii) of such section) that the transaction is a violation; or
(B) to knowingly or recklessly sell at retail such a product in violation of paragraph (2) of such subsection (d);
(13) who is a regulated seller to knowingly or recklessly sell at retail a scheduled listed chemical product in
violation of subsection (e) of such section;
(14) who is a regulated seller or an employee or agent of such seller to disclose, in violation of regulations
under subparagraph (C) of section 830(e)(1) of this title, information in logbooks under subparagraph (A)(iii)
of such section, or to refuse to provide such a logbook to Federal, State, or local law enforcement authorities;
(15) to distribute a scheduled listed chemical product to a regulated seller, or to a regulated person referred

to under section 830(e)(1)(B)(v) of this title; or
(16) to violate subsection (e) of section 825 of this title.2
As used in paragraph (11), the term "laboratory supply" means a listed chemical or any chemical, substance,
or item on a special surveillance list published by the Attorney General, which contains chemicals, products,
materials, or equipment used in the manufacture of controlled substances and listed chemicals. For purposes
of paragraph (11), there is a rebuttable presumption of reckless disregard at trial if the Attorney General notifies
a firm in writing that a laboratory supply sold by the firm, or any other person or firm, has been used by a
customer of the notified firm, or distributed further by that customer, for the unlawful production of
controlled substances or listed chemicals a firm distributes and 2 weeks or more after the notification the
notified firm distributes a laboratory supply to the customer. For purposes of paragraph (15), if the distributor
is temporarily unable to access the list of persons referred to under section 830(e)(1)(B)(v) of this title, the
distributor may rely on a written, faxed, or electronic copy of a certificate of self-certification submitted by
the regulated seller or regulated person, provided the distributor confirms within 7 business days of the
distribution that such regulated seller or regulated person is on the list referred to under section
830(e)(1)(B)(v) of this title.
(b) Manufacture
It shall be unlawful for any person who is a registrant to manufacture a controlled substance
in schedule I or II,
or ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, or phenylpropanolamine or any of the salts, optical isomers,
or salts of optical
isomers of such chemical, which is-
(1) not expressly authorized by his registration and by a quota assigned to him pursuant to section 826 of this title;
or
(2) in excess of a quota assigned to him pursuant to section 826 of this title.
(c) Penalties
(1)(A) Except as provided in subparagraph (B), (C), or (D) of this paragraph and paragraph (2),
any person who violates this section shall, with respect to any such violation, be subject to a civil penalty
of not more than $25,000. The district courts of the United States (or, where there is no such court in the
case of any territory or possession of the United States, then the court in such territory or possession
having the jurisdiction of a district court of the United States in cases arising under the Constitution and laws
of the United States) shall have jurisdiction in accordance with section 1355 of title 28 to enforce this paragraph.
(B) In the case of a violation of paragraph (5) or (10) of subsection (a), the civil penalty shall not exceed $10,000.
(C) In the case of a violation of paragraph (16) of subsection (a) of this section by an importer, exporter
manufacturer, or distributor (other than as provided in subparagraph (D)), up to $500,000 per violation.
For purposes of this subparagraph, a violation is defined as each instance of importation, exportation,
manufacturing, distribution, or possession with intent to manufacture or distribute, in violation of
paragraph (16) of subsection (a).
(D) In the case of a distribution, dispensing, or possession with intent to distribute or dispense in violation
of paragraph (16) of subsection (a) of this section at the retail level, up to $1000 per violation. For purposes
of this paragraph, the term "at the retail level" refers to products sold, or held for sale, directly to the consumer
for personal use. Each package, container or other separate unit containing an anabolic steroid that is distributed,
dispensed, or possessed with intent to distribute or dispense at the retail level in violation of such paragraph (16)
of subsection (a) shall be considered a separate violation.
(2)(A) If a violation of this section is prosecuted by an information or indictment which alleges that the violation
was committed knowingly and the trier of fact specifically finds that the violation was so committed, such person
shall, except as otherwise provided in subparagraph (B) of this paragraph, be sentenced to imprisonment of not
more than one year or a fine under title 18, or both.
(B) If a violation referred to in subparagraph (A) was committed after one or more prior convictions of the offender
for an offense punishable under this paragraph (2), or for a crime under any other provision of this subchapter
or subchapter II or other law of the United States relating to narcotic drugs,
marihuana,
or depressant or stimulant substances, have become final,
such person shall be sentenced to a term of imprisonment of not more than 2 years, a fine under title 18, or both.
(C) In addition to the penalties set forth elsewhere in this subchapter or subchapter II, any business that violates
paragraph (11) of subsection (a) shall, with respect to the first such violation, be subject to a civil penalty of
not more than $250,000, but shall not be subject to criminal penalties under this section, and shall, for any
succeeding violation, be subject to a civil fine of not more than $250,000 or double the last previously imposed penalty,
whichever is greater.
(3) Except under the conditions specified in paragraph (2) of this subsection, a violation of this section does not
constitute a crime, and a judgment for the United States and imposition of a civil penalty pursuant to paragraph (1)
shall not give rise to any disability or legal disadvantage based on conviction for a criminal offense.
(4)(A) If a regulated seller, or a distributor required to submit reports under section 830(b)(3) of this title,
violates paragraph (12) of subsection (a) of this section, or if a regulated seller violates paragraph (13) of
such subsection, the Attorney General may by order prohibit such seller or distributor (as the case may be)
from selling any scheduled listed chemical product. Any sale of such a product in violation of such an order
is subject to the same penalties as apply under paragraph (2).
(B) An order under subparagraph (A) may be imposed only through the same procedures as apply under
section 824(c) of this title for an order to show cause.
