Part 7 Federal Marijuana Laws: Chemicals The Govt Approves To Spray Vermont to Kill Marijuana


PART 7 FEDERAL MARIJUANA LAWS "Prima facie", in the law, means that if you have a state offense for marijuana spelled with a j in the law, marihuana spelled with an h in the law, or cannabis, then that is OBVIOUS that you may have also violated federal law. How many Vermont State Senators and Vermont Representatives know that they may be setting you up for a federal prison term, by their little ol' Vermont slap on the hand statute?

 

http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/prima+facie Statutes may specify that certain evidence is prima facie evidence of a certain fact. For example, a duly authenticated copy of a defendant's criminal record may be considered prima facie evidence of the defendant's prior convictions and may be used against the defendant in court. (Colo. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 18-3-412 [West 1996]). This is why plea bargains should be outlawed: too many people under pressure or torture as a pre-trial detainee in a jail, or family obligations such as needing to get out of jail to take care of a sick person in the family, or whatever, plead guilty to something they are not guilty at all of. This, then sets them up wrongfully under "prima facie" evidence of a "prior record". TITLE 21 USC 962; TITLE 21 USC 967; TITLE 21 USC 1705; TITLE 21 USC 1708; 21 USC 1713. Please remember to contact your Vermont State Senators and State Representatives and ask them to please vote against Governor Phil Scott's VETO of RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA during the special veto session June 21 and June 22, 2017. TITLE 21 UNITED STATES CODE Section 962 http://uscode.house.gov/view.xhtml?req=marihuana&f=treesort&fq=true&num=... TITLE 21 / CHAPTER 13 / SUBCHAPTER II / § 962 21 USC 962: Second or subsequent offenses Text contains those laws in effect on June 10, 2017 From Title 21-FOOD AND DRUGS CHAPTER 13-DRUG ABUSE PREVENTION AND CONTROL SUBCHAPTER II-IMPORT AND EXPORT § 962. Second or subsequent offenses (a) Term of imprisonment and fine Any person convicted of any offense under this subchapter is, if the offense is a second or subsequent offense, punishable by a term of imprisonment twice that otherwise authorized, by twice the fine otherwise authorized, or by both. If the conviction is for an offense punishable under section 960(b) of this title, and if it is the offender's second or subsequent offense, the court shall impose, in addition to any term of imprisonment and fine, twice the term of supervised release otherwise authorized. (b) Determination of status For purposes of this section, a person shall be considered convicted of a second or subsequent offense if, prior to the commission of such offense, one or more prior convictions of such person for a felony drug offense have become final. (c) Procedures applicable Section 851 of this title shall apply with respect to any proceeding to sentence a person under this section. Amendments 1994-Subsec. (b). Pub. L. 103–322 substituted "one or more prior convictions of such person for a felony drug offense have become final" for "one or more prior convictions of him for a felony under any provision of this subchapter or subchapter I of this chapter or other law of a State, the United States, or a foreign country relating to narcotic drugs, marihuana, or depressant or stimulant drugs, have become final".

Witnesses summoned by the Secretary shall be paid the same fees and mileage that are paid witnesses in the courts of the United States. Oaths and affirmations may be made at any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. Amendments 1970-Pub. L. 91–513 substituted "section 545 of title 18 (relating to smuggling goods into the United States) with respect to any controlled substance (as defined in section 802 of this title)" for "the laws of the United States relating to narcotic drugs and marihuana" and substituted the customs territory of the United States for any State or any territory or other place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States is the defined area from within which the attendance of witnesses and the production of records may be required, and struck out provisions making the discretion of the Secretary of the Treasury the determinative factor as to what is relevant or material to the investigation.
