I NEED YOUR HELP ~ Harborside’s Landlords…

From: Terry Colorado – December 1, 2012

Folks;

I see both sides of the debate; Dave, and Shona are right … our movement can’t afford to allow “snitch-like, me-first” activity to bring us down. However, this situation with Harborside … hey it affects us all. Me in particular … i’ll get into that later, but the point is … we ALL need to come together on this … we need unity to stop Federal Forfeiture actions … we need unity to stop Landlord Eviction actions … We need to stand together or the feds will take an “eviction win” to permanently implement their crackdown. The feds can not succeed … unless they get the States to cooperate. We the people make up our state … we cannot let the Fed’s take the legal “high ground.” If the feds win against Harborside … they will come harder stronger … and the state governments will capitulate to their demands. We can’t let that happen. Despite your feelings for Harborside .. or me for that matter … please stand with me … please stand with Harborside to stop Landlord evictions of legal collectives and dispensaries in the state of California.

Some of you may not know this, but i am the operating manager of Sacsterdam Collective, Inc. a mutual benefit non-profit collective … legally formed within the state of california. Sacsterdam Collective is authorized by the City of Sacramento, to distribute medical marijuana within city limits as long as it remains in compliance with the local ordinance. Sacsterdam Collective along with 35 other collectives are currently going through a 4 year permitting process that began in May of 2008. Sacsterdam Collective Inc, opened Power Inn Wellness Dispensary in July 2011; utilizing a 3 year lease with a property (location) that is/was in complete compliance with the local ordinance and State Law.

The operating partner I opened up with was unethical and lacked integrity; the partnership went sour fast. This person is part of a group of consultants in Sacramento, that are buying up very limited locations available around town that fit precisely within the confines of the ordinance. Once i recognized what was happening i terminated my relationship, but not before I believe this person sent my landlord a BOGUS FED LETTER. I believe this person working with the current property management; attempting to have my collective terminated or evicted so that they may turn around and lease the same property (location) to another collective/dispensary at twice or even three times the going market rate. Unfortunately, this is the trend be played out in Sacramento.

There are about 35 collectives and only 17 operating due to very restrictive zoning language in the ordinance, a nice present from Don Duncan. Unfortunately, this puts a very high value on the physical locations of dispensaries … those are gold. A very popular and well known collective shut its doors recently due to the locationzoning confines of the Sac City Ordinance. I know for a fact, this dispensary would pay 2 times even 3 times the going rate to get back open … just to get back open. This trend is currently be played out in Sacramento City right now, and my club is the latest victim.

Two things about the fed letter (threat of forfeiture) that make me believe it was not authentic is that the letter does not have the proper address; and it does not specify that the dispensary is in violation of state law or that it is near a school or park, etc. In other words … my dispensary … if you believe the letter is legit … has been singled out … much like Harborside … by this letter. Long story short … The landlord tried to terminate the contract based on this letter; blatantly ” … acting as a private entity trying to enforce the CSA.” in the process. As a result of the letter; i was pressured by the landlord to stop all distribution and cultivation of medicine until such time a time when the feds APPROVE that distribution of medical marijuana is legal in the state of California. Well its pretty obvious to us all that the feds have APPROVED dispensaries that are in compliance with state law and are not within the 1000 ft of a school, park, etc,. So with this information … and after paying 9 months for a vacant property … I informed my landlord that i intended to restart operations at the property with his consent. The landlord’s official response was … “We don’t have an answer for you.” Then a week later, i received a 30 day notice to terminate. I am now faced with either moving out or fighting a subsequent eviction … under the very same circumstances Harborside faces.

As you folks might understand, the argument Harborside is using at both of their facilities, to fight the eviction is that they are saying that the eviction action by the landlord is unlawful because the Landlord is acting as a private citizen enforcing the CSA; bottom line is that this argument is unprecedented; and it has flavor. I plan to fight eviction action by my landlord with the very same arguments Harborside is using in their case. What all of this really comes down to is NOT Harborside’s business model; whether it is legal or not … it does come down to State Right and Tenant Rights. The debate is this … should Harborside’s Landlord … be allowed to evict their tenant for following state law … now … after many years of profiting from the distribution of medical marijuana … should this landlord … or MY LANDLORD be allowed to evict me or any other collective for following state law … using Federal CSA Law, as their excuse or mandate?

My situation is a bit different then Harborside; the greed of my landlord appears to play FULLY into the equation; should my landlord be allowed to evict me for distribution of medical marijuana … only to turn around and allow another collective to take over my lease … solely because the other collective has offered to pay 2 or 3 times more then the going rate? This might be fine … if all things being equal … however I have a signed 3 year lease … with options. The landlord is reneging on the contract … and i am forced to fight for the survival of my club in Court fighting an eviction.

I am asking … no really i am pleading with all of you … lets please put our differences aside … and lets take on Harborside’s fight … please help me take on my fight as well. If we don’t stop Landlord evictions or Federal forfeiture … somehow … if we don’t fight what is happening to my club … and what is happening to Harborside’s club … if we don’t stop it … your club could be next … this is where the feds can shut down dispensing not just in California .. but in the entire nation as well. We have to take a stand … i’m asking … pleading … please … take a stand with Harborside … please take a stand with me. Thank you,

Sincerely,

Marijuana decriminalization law brings down juvenile arrests in California

juvenile arrests in California

** *Marijuana decriminalization law brings down juvenile arrests in California **Study says reduction in penalties meant fines, not jail, for young offenders* By Susan Ferrissemail 6:00 am, November 26, 2012 Updated: 6:00 am, November 26, 2012 http://www.publicintegrity.org/2012/11/26/11842/marijuana-decriminal ization-law-brings-down-juvenile-arrests-california

Marijuana – it’s one of the primary reasons why California experienced a stunning 20 percent drop in juvenile arrests in just one year, between 2010 and 2011, according to provocative new research.

The San Francisco-based Center on Juvenile & Criminal Justice (CJCJ) recently released a policy briefing with an analysis of arrest data collected by the California Department of Justice’s Criminal Justice Statistics Center. The briefing, “California Youth Crime Plunges to All-Time Low,” identifies a new state marijuana decriminalization law that applies to juveniles, not just adults, as the driving force behind the plummeting arrest totals.

After the new pot law went into effect in January 2011, simple marijuana possession arrests of California juveniles fell from 14,991 in 2010 to 5,831 in 2011, a 61 percent difference, the report by CJCJ senior research fellow Mike Males found.

“Arrests for youths for the largest single drug category, marijuana, fell by 9,000 to a level not seen since before the 1980s implementation of the ‘war on drugs,’ ” Males wrote in the report, released in October.

In November, as Males blogged recently, voters in Washington state and Colorado voted to legalize but regulate marijuana use, like alcohol, for people over 21. California’s 2010 law did not legalize marijuana, but it officially knocked down “simple” possession of less than one ounce to an infraction from a misdemeanor – and it applies to minors, not just people over 21. Police don’t arrest people for infractions; usually, they ticket them. And infractions are punishable not by jail time, but by fines – a $100 fine in California in the case of less than one ounce of pot.

“I think it was pretty courageous not to put an age limit on it,” said Males, a longtime researcher on juvenile justice and a former sociology professor at the University of California at Santa Cruz. Arresting and putting low-level juvenile offenders into the criminal-justice system pulls many kids deeper into trouble rather than turning them around, Males said, a conclusion many law-enforcement experts share.

California’s 2010 law still makes it a misdemeanor for anyone over 18 to possess less than an ounce of pot on school grounds, Males noted. For an adult, that’s an offense punishable by a $500 fine, ten days in a county jail or both. A minor caught on school grounds with less than an ounce of marijuana is also guilty of a misdemeanor and faces a $150 fine for the first offense, a $500 fine for a second offense and commitment to youth detention for not more than 10 days.

Before the passage of the 2010 law, Californians caught with less than an ounce of pot were arrested by the thousands every year, ultimately facing a fine of $100 fine and, under certain conditions, referral to drug treatment or education. Many of those arrested were booked, others were released but required to appear in court. They could demand a trial. Strained courts had to take up time ordering diversion treatment programs – a waste of court resources, supporters of a reform said.

Backed by the California District Attorneys Association, the new pot law – passed by state lawmakers – did away with prior requirements that pot offenders be referred to treatment and now allows them to pay a $100 fine akin to that for jaywalking. When Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed the law, he noted that simple pot possession in California was already “an infraction in everything but name.”

Males said he suspects that many of the 5,831 marijuana arrests of juveniles in California last year may have occurred on school grounds. He doesn’t have data yet to check his theory, however. In his police briefing, Males also notes that juvenile arrests in California were the lowest ever recorded since statewide statistics were first compiled in 1954. The decline, Males said, wasn’t due just to fewer marijuana arrests.

Drug-related juvenile arrests overall fell by 47 percent between 2010 and 2011. Violent crime arrests fell by 16 percent; homicide arrests by 26 percent; rape arrests by 10 percent; and property-crime arrests by 16 percent. Nationwide, according to the FBI Uniform Crime Reports, arrests of juveniles for all offenses decreased 11.1 percent in 2011 when compared with the 2010 number; arrests of adults declined 3.6 percent.

Report at: http://www.cjcj.org/files/CA_Youth_Crime_2011.pdf

CalNORML writes at http://www.canorml.org/arrestsprisoners.html:

In 2010, California reported 55,000 misdemeanor marijuana possession arrests plus 16,585 felonies, for a total of around 71,000.

As of January 1, 2011,* possession of an ounce or less was demoted from a misdemeanor to an infraction.* The state doesn’t keep track of infractions, so we are expecting a precipitous drop in the number of possession arrests in the 2011 stats. Unfortunately, it will probably be impossible to tell whether total possession citations have increased or decreased since 2010, because the data won’t be there.

California hasn’t yet released its arrest data for adults in 2011, but has released* juvenile arrest data from 2011* showing 1,952 felony arrests and 5,831 misdemeanors for marijuana among those under 18.

This is quite a drop from* the 14,991 misdemeanor arrests for marijuana among juveniles in 2010,* but we don’t know how many infractions there were. Felony arrests are nearly equal in the two years, with 2206 in 2010. Racial disparities are the same (predominantly Hispanic with Whites running second). Most go to probation.

    I truely believe you should put your considerable talent and effort into
    getting more decriminalization law passed in california for non-patients
    … i.e. support decriminalization for non commercial & non profit
    cultivation up to 99 plants; as well as possession of increased weight
    limits from 1oz to 8oz ..for example.

    *Agreed; but i'm not afraid of the feds because i'm a patient and not a
    PROFITEER nor am i concerned with the COMMERCIAL CULTIVATION of marijuana;
    i'm concerned with cultivation for individual patients. Further you did
    not address the fact that the idea of full legalization as you describe it
    … is not supported by most of the nation. which puts your point of view
    in the minority. Prop 19 … denied; and nothing for 2012 … denied.
    Further you did not address the fact that weed is already decriminalized
    for all NON-PATIENTS in California; which i believe should be the same
    across the nation. i just don't see the see the mass incarceration argument
    has merit in California. California is my concern; once California is good;
    then we change the nation.
     
    * I suggest each patient make an informed adult decision; smoke it legal or
    smoke it illegal … its your adult decision; and i'm not shouldn't be
    shamed into agree with your decision or position. Its against the law to
    drink and drive. If you choose to drink and drive despite your feelings
    whether it is illegal or not; that's your decision … and nothing i need
    to be shamed about; i'm not gong to be shamed into supporting a perspective
    i don't agree with; nor does the rest of the nation. The nations supports
    medical use; that's it. Fact is the nation has chewed the propaganda so
    long … nobody and i mean nobody wants to force feed the pubic this
    legalization spin. Romney and Obama didn't even discuss medical … forget
    about it.
     
    Think of it his way … you're jail for driving drunk … you gonna say
    "I'm sorry you are sick … but i'm in Jail." This nation is not going to
    sympathize with you right? Well unfortunately … most of the nation feels
    the same way about weed; the legal movement just has a hard time accepting
    this as true.
     
    We don't share the same perspective; because we don't share the same goal;
    i'm concerned with medicine in California; my concern is PROP 215; and
    decriminalization.
    .. with respect,

    WEED ACTIVIST SAID:
     
    "i no longer believe that full legalization is the answer"
     
     
    Well that settles that then…
     
     
    I will just agree to disagree on that position. As long as we are
    justifying continuing the mass incarceration of our people because we fear
    that the Feds will somehow take away the limited medical rights we have,
    then we have already lost.
     
     
    "my best advice is to GET LEGAL; get a doctor to recommend treatment for
    your condition; that's the rules; i don't make em; and i don't break em."
     
     
    So you suggest that people who do not feel they are ill should simply
    exploit the system further because that is what we have in place, rather
    than do the hard work it takes to make it so nobody has to go to the doctor
    ever again if they do not want? I do not get that, but okay….
     
     
    Thanks again for the perspective. I do not share it, but I can respect it.

    Actually the latest polls show 50% and 54% respectively support
    legalization nationwide compares with low 40% opposed.

    It matters because ASA is a front for the financial interests of a small group of people who are seeking (or have) to create a monopoly where only they sell pot and all other people continue to be arrested and go to jail.
     
    It matters because now in Maine, thanks to Rebecca DeKuster, Berkely Patient Group, and (hence ASA) you now only have 8 stores when it could have been decriminalized for all mmj patients at the very least to work in groups or collectivelly associate to cultivate.
     
    It matters because the hard work and good intentions of others are stolen REGULARLY by others.
     
    You make a conflicting statement.
     
    You say "who cares" and then you say Asa accomplished all this.
    No. ASA did not accomplish this and you can assume by this being pointed out that ASA has taken credit for many things THEY did not accomplish GIVING UNSUSPECTING PERSON THE BELIEF that "ASA accomplished" this.
    Who cares?
     
    You and any patient who wants to stop paying $300 an ounce for a plant should care. Monopolies never benefit the consumer
    You and anybody who believes that people should not be thrown in prison for this plant should care as ASA is using this illusion of success to influence policy for their consulting business to be the pot dealers
    ASA is not a social group, nor is it an advocacy group for anything except Don Duncan and associates business interests.
     
    Yet, they portray themselves as a the voice of a social movement.
    It matters because when groups work on something for years they want to use that success to obtain grants from donors to be able to accomplish more things.
     
    Makes it kind of hard if one group is lying and taking credit as a regular part of their strategy.
     
    It matters because now in Maine you have what? 8 stores? But everybody else still goes to jail, right? And people will continue to overpay for a PLANT, right? Because it is so dangerous only the ASA sprouts should sell it right?
     
    It matters alot.
     
    And to me, it really matters that they manipulate their restrictive permitting pot monopoly with death threats, smear and intimidation campaigns, thefts of intellectual property, ratting people out as seeing other patient groups as "competition" to be eliminated, ideas of freedom are met with harassment and threats of bodily harm at government offices. It matters when they stalk people and hack computers to accomplish their pot monopoly. It matters when they go into stores and stick their USB sticks into the stores computer under the guise of helping them but really stealing their patient databases. It matters when they threaten to make peoples children disappear, it matters when they lead false allegations of embezzlement against groups trying to work on level 2 and 3 zoning and spread this all over town to mislead people
    WHILE ASA PUTS INTO PLAY IT'S SHELL GAME OF USING OTHERS AS HUMAN CANNON FODDER TO OBTAIN RESTRICTIVE PERMITS FOR THEIR ORGANIZATION TO BE EXCLUSIVE DISTRIBUTORS OF MARIJUANA.
    it matters to me that they are doing this on the backs of the people who this law was meant for and it matters that they intimidate those patients who try to get active into "going away".
    It matters that they are an actual corporate self serving interest who has claimed the right to speak for a social movement and enforces this with death threats and violence
    It matters. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Who gives a shit? All the ones that matter, you as much as I, or I as much as you when it comes to our rights! I give a shit. NORML is mostly lawyers, their agenda is to keep it illegal to support their agenda(guise) Jobs for lawyers from busted patients looking for help. We all know that, The
    difference is A.S.A. uses patients concerns as their guise, you explain "Restrictive Permitting" "Stricter Guide Lines" or "Thinning of The Herds"? or this <iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/Qu8UIHIYmDY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>  

    In Fact Teflon Don Duncan doesn't care either way, here's proof…<iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/-HaPaOSs4BI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> 
    like most patients A.S.A. appears as the "grapes" and the patients are the fox jumping to get a taste, only to find the grapes are bitter. There's more truth available in theweedlynews.com if the truth is what you seek?

    It matters because now in Maine you have what? 8 stores? But everybody else still goes to jail, right? And people will continue to overpay for a PLANT, right? Because it is so dangerous only the ASA sprouts should sell it right?
     
    It matters alot.
     
    And to me, it really matters that they manipulate their restrictive permitting pot monopoly with death threats, smear and intimidation campaigns, thefts of intellectual property, ratting people out as seeing other patient groups as "competition" to be eliminated, ideas of freedom are met with harassment and threats of bodily harm at government offices. It matters when they stalk people and hack computers to accomplish their pot monopoly. It matters when they go into stores and stick their USB sticks into the stores computer under the guise of helping them but really stealing their patient databases. It matters when they threaten to make peoples children disappear, it matters when they lead false allegations of embezzlement against groups trying to work on level 2 and 3 zoning and spread this all over town to mislead people
    WHILE ASA PUTS INTO PLAY IT'S SHELL GAME OF USING OTHERS AS HUMAN CANNON FODDER TO OBTAIN RESTRICTIVE PERMITS FOR THEIR ORGANIZATION TO BE EXCLUSIVE DISTRIBUTORS OF MARIJUANA.
    it matters to me that they are doing this on the backs of the people who this law was meant for and it matters that they intimidate those patients who try to get active into "going away".
    It matters that they are an actual corporate self serving interest who has claimed the right to speak for a social movement and enforces this with death threats and violence
    It matters. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Who gives a shit? All the ones that matter, you as much as I, or I as much as you when it comes to our rights! I give a shit. NORML is mostly lawyers, their agenda is to keep it illegal to support their agenda(guise) Jobs for lawyers from busted patients looking for help. We all know that, The difference is A.S.A. uses patients concerns as their guise, you explain "Restrictive Permitting" "Stricter Guide Lines" or "Thinning of The Herds"? or this <iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/Qu8UIHIYmDY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>  
     
    In Fact Teflon Don Duncan doesn't care either way, here's proof…<iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/-HaPaOSs4BI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> 
    like most patients A.S.A. appears as the "grapes" and the patients are the fox jumping to get a taste, only to find the grapes are bitter. There's more truth available in theweedlynews.com if the truth is what you seek?
