Stopped By Police #17

While coming home on my bike (Santa Monica GT) I was stopped by a patrol car. I was asked if I was on probation I said no. The officer then asked if I used to be on probation I said yes but I had been off for over a year.
 He asked if I was still using I said, "what weed?" He asked if I used anything else. I said weed, I have a card for it.
He asked my name I told him that and that I was almost home.
He told ok then you can go.
I said thank you sir and I was on my way once again. 
I passed a Sheriff and another patrol car before seeing the unit that ultimately stopped me. 
Clearly all this officer remembered about me was being on probation and hopefully open to search and seizure. He also made an inaccurate accusation which has no explanation other than perhaps confusion.
Why can't they remember the 16 other times I've been stopped and been found to be doing nothing wrong. The officer was respectful but how much better could they perform their duties with knowledge of and support by the citizens of the city they serve.

Senate to Hold Hearing On Medical Marijuana

Marijuana Laws In September

Committee To Hold Hearing September 10

August 26, 2013

WASHINGTON – Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) announced Monday that the Committee will hold a hearing next month on the conflict between state and federal marijuana laws.  Attorney General Eric Holder and Deputy Attorney General James Cole have been invited to testify. 

The hearing titled “Conflicts between State and Federal Marijuana Laws” comes months after two states, Washington and Colorado, legalized small amounts of marijuana for personal use.  Twenty states and the District of Columbia have legalized medicinal marijuana consumption.  Leahy has pressed the Obama administration to determine its enforcement policy in light of these state actions, including writing in December to the Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) about the issue.  Leahy has also asked what assurances the administration can give to state officials responsible for the licensing of marijuana retailers to ensure they will not face criminal penalties for carrying out their duties under those state laws.

“It is important, especially at a time of budget constraints, to determine whether it is the best use of federal resources to prosecute the personal or medicinal use of marijuana in states that have made such consumption legal,” Leahy said. “I believe that these state laws should be respected.  At a minimum, there should be guidance about enforcement from the federal government.”

The hearing will be held on Tuesday, September 10, at 10 a.m. in Room 216 of the Hart Senate Office Building.  A witness list will be announced closer to the date of the hearing. Reporters interested in covering the hearing should RSVP to their respective press galleries.
