Pressure Mounts for Marijuana Reform in Bermuda

September 25th

HAMILTON, BERMUDA – For Americans, mention “Bermuda” and “marijuana” and the first thing that comes to mind is a vision of vacationing cruise ship passengers arrested and fined in large amounts for carrying small quantities of the substance, like this Oakland medical marijuana patient last month or these two unfortunate tourists in April. But that could be about to […]

Seattle Hempfest: One Week Until the World’s Largest Marijuana Celebration

SEATTLE, WA —  For three days in August, hundreds of thousands of people will descend on Myrtle Edwards and Centennial Parks on Seattle’s waterfront for the 22nd annual Hempfest, traditionally the largest annual gathering of pro-cannabis supporters in the world.  But following last year’s historic passage of Initiative 502, which legalized the adult possession of marijuana […]

Seattle Hempfest Prepares for the Largest Victory Celebration in the History of Cannabis

July 21st

SEATTLE, WA —  For three days in August, hundreds of thousands of people will descend on Myrtle Edwards and Centennial Parks on Seattle’s waterfront for the 22nd annual Hempfest, traditionally the largest annual gathering of pro-cannabis supporters in the world.  But following last year’s historic passage of Initiative 502, which legalized the adult possession of marijuana in the state, this year’s Hempfest is promises one thing that the previous 21 were not: a victory celebration.

What started out as a “humble gathering of stoners” in 1991, conceived during a peace vigil in opposition of the first Gulf War and attracting a crowd of about 500 people has grown to a world-renown 3 day “protestival” celebrating human rights, equality, freedom, and of course, cannabis.

Spanning 1.3 miles, two public parks, six stages,  more than 300 vendors and staffed by over 1,000 volunteers, Hempfest isn’t just the largest annual pro-pot rally in the world — it is also one of the largest special events in the State of Washington.  With a Special Events permit requiring a $1 million insurance policy, emergency evacuation plans, safety and security personnel, Hempfest is not a “pot party in the park,” it is a bona-fide political rally who’s organizers work closely with city officials to ensure a successful — and peaceful — annual tradition.

Jet City Tours Provides Marijuana Trips to Seattle and Beyond

July 9th

SEATTLE, WA — While John Denver put the notion of a Rocky Mountain High to a tune, Seattle’s Jet City Tours is singing a whole new song when it comes to mountain highs. The company released its upcoming season of tours on Monday, all of which feature sampling the state’s largest cash crop, marijuana.

In 2012, Washington voters legalized the recreational use of marijuana which has created an entirely new legal industry in the State. Jet City Tours provides guests with a safe, sane, and legal experience as they visit iconic sites around the city while legally sampling from a variety of different marijuana strains including indica, sativa, and hybrid blends.

Very similar to popular wine tours operating in the State for years, Jet City Tours uses limo busses for their guests which feature a separate compartment for the driver, allowing them enjoy beer, wine, and sample from high quality cannabis crops while underway. Christine Castillo heads up the tour desk at Jet City Tours and is very excited about the coming tour season. “The majority of our guests are professionals, entrepreneurs, artists, entertainers. Good people looking for fun and adventure on vacation who just happen to like smoking good crops”, she said.

Jet City offers a variety of tours ranging from the city of Seattle and its inspiring locations like the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, and the Waterfront to mountain tour. . . . . READ MORE

Trial Begins for Dutch Cannabis Coffee Shop Owners

June 12th

MAASTRICHT, NETHERLANDS —  The trial of the owners and staff of three cannabis cafes in the southern Netherlands city of Maastricht began Wednesday, charged with selling marijuana to foreigners in a case both sides of a heated debate in this border city hope will clarify the legality of a clampdown on the city’s coffee shops.

Maastricht is using new national legislation banning coffee shops from selling cannabis and marijuana to people who don’t live in the Netherlands as a way of clamping down on what the local mayor says was a nuisance caused by hundreds of thousands of drug tourists driving into the picturesque heart of the city to stock up on weed.

The cafe owners and staff being prosecuted were arrested last month after serving foreign customers as a way of testing the legality of the new rules. A second group of owners is due in court later this month and verdicts are expected in mid-July.

Prosecutors asked judges to fine the seven suspects up to 5,000 euros (more than $6,500) and give them community service orders and short suspended prison sentences.

In an interview Tuesday in his ornate office in Maastricht’s old City Hall, Mayor Onno Hoes defended the crackdown on coffee shops as an effective way of reining in proble. . . . . READ MORE

3 Things to Do if You’re Arrested in Mexico for Drugs

June 3rd

Row of Jail Cells

What should a tourist do if arrested in Mexico and accused of carrying drugs?

By several accounts, Phoenix-area resident Yanira Maldonado did everything right when federal police said they found 12 pounds of marijuana under her bus seat, setting off a weeklong drama that ended with her release from jail after a court found the allegations were unsubstantiated.

The steps authorities say you should take:

NOTIFY YOUR CONSULATE

If you don’t have your consulate’s phone number – and you should – U.S. authorities say to insist that you be put you in touch. Consulates can reach family and friends and provide a list of attorneys.

The U.S. State Department has a free online service to register your travel plans and better help in an emergency. Registration is at HTTPS://STEP.STATE.GOV .

“Reaching your consulate always works to your advantage,” said Juan Tintos, tourism secretary for Mexico’s Baja California state, which includes Tijuana.

HIRE A MEXICAN ATTORNEY

Many recommend Americans hire an attorney in Mexico because the country’s legal system is so different, presuming guilt instead of innocence. Good attorneys also know how. . . . . READ MORE
