In a House speech Thursday, King said: “Eighty to 90 percent of the illegal drugs consumed in America come from or through Mexico. I can tell you that in Mexico they are recruiting kids to be drug smugglers, between the ages of 11 and 18.”

Iowa Republican Congressman Calls Immigrants ‘Evil’ Marijuana Smugglers in Racist Remarks

July 25th

By | The Daily Chronic - The Voice of the Reform Generation

Rep. Steve King

Rep. Steve King

WASHINGTON, DC — In an interview with conservative website Newsmax, a Republican congressman from Iowa, Rep. Steve King, called immigrants evil marijuana smugglers who have “calves the size of cantaloupes because they’ve been hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert.”

The remarks came in an interview with conservative website Newsmax magazine, when Rep. King was asked about the DREAM Act, which would give undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children a chance at permanent residency.

Some of them are valedictorians — and their parents brought them in. It wasn’t their fault. It’s true in some cases, but they aren’t all valedictorians. They weren’t all brought in by their parents. For every one who’s a valedictorian, there’s another 100 out there who weigh 130 pounds — and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’ve been hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert.. . . . .

Amanda Bynes Kicked Out of NYC Ritz-Carlton for Smoking Pot

July 20th

NEW YORK, NY — On Thursday, Amanda Bynes was asked to leave a Ritz-Carlton in New York City after repeatedly smoking marijuana in her room and being disrespectful to the staff.

From the beginning of her stay, Bynes was reportedly rude to the hotel staff and berated the clerk who checked her in.  Bynes called the clerk “too ugly” to check her in and offered to give her contact information for her plastic surgeon.

According to TMZ, the 27-year-old actress also smoked marijuana in her room daily and tried to hide the smell by using spray chemicals, despite warnings from the staff to stop.

Due to her bad behavior, the hotel ejected her several hours before the scheduled check-out time on Thursday.

Bynes reportedly denied these accusations and told TMZ that she had left voluntarily and that she does not smoke marijuana.

Bynes was kicked out of her Manhattan apartment in June following a May 23rd arrest for allegedly tossing a bong out of a 36th floor window.

Though the once-bright child actress had a promising career, progressing from hosting “The Amanda Show” on Nickelodeon to starring in feature films like “She’s the Man” and “What a Girl Wants,” the fizzling starlet has not appeared in a film since landing a supporting role in “Easy A” in 2010.

July 11th

VANCOUVER, BC — The United States government has approved a prisoner transfer application for Mar Emery, a Canadian marijuana activist serving a five year sentence in a US federal prison for selling marijuana seeds over the internet to fund efforts to legalize marijuana.

Emery’s wife, Jodie, said she was informed of the approval by email Wednesday afternoon, shortly after speaking to her husband over the phone.

“It’s great news that the US Department of Justice has approved Marc’s transfer home,” Jodie Emery told Cannabis Culture, a magazine Emery founded. “I hope the Canadian Conservative government quickly approves the paperwork on their end so it becomes official and Marc can come home to Canada.”

The prisoner transfer must still be approved by Canadian authorities before Emery, known as the “Prince of Pot,” would be eligible to return to Canada.

Emery was sentenced to five years in US federal prison for conspiracy to manufacture marijuana, and is serving his sentence at the Yazoo City Federal Correctional Complex in Mississippi.

Boxer Julio Cesar Chavez’s Marijuana Fine Cut from $900k to $100k

June 30th

LAS VEGAS, NV — The Nevada State Athletic Commission has slashed boxer Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.’s fine over a failed drug test from $900,000 to $100,000.

Commission members took the action Friday after Chavez’s attorneys argued the excessive fine violated the boxer’s constitutional rights and negotiated to reduce it.

Chavez tested positive for marijuana after his first professional loss in Las Vegas on Sept. 15.

He was slapped with the $900,000 fine by the commission on Feb. 28 as a repeat offender of the panel’s drug policy. Chavez had tested positive for diuretics in 2009.

He has served a nine-month suspension that was part of the original punishment and will return to the ring Sept. 7 against Brian Vera in Los Angeles.
