Coweta County, GA
Rapper Boosie Badazz has been arrested after a traffic stop in Georgia. Boosie got released from prison in 2014. He completed his parole in 2018. Boosie has mostly stayed out of any type of trouble since his 2014 release from prison. Even though official charges usually sound a lot worse than the reality of what they really are, any time you add a pistol into the mix, things are usually all bad.
TMZ (@tmz) reported, Georgia court records show that Boosie and another man, identified as Antonio Allen, are currently being held in the Coweta County jail facing marijuana and possession of narcotics charges. Along with another charge for possession of a firearm. It’s not clear which man was in possession of the gun, but it looks like both were charged with it. Boosie and Allen were reportedly pulled over after a police officer allegedly witnessed the Dodge Charger the men were riding in, swerving in and out of traffic lanes. The officer reported that the Charger nearly sideswiped multiple other vehicles on the road. When the cop pulled the car over, he claimed that it had a strong odor of marijuana…. which I’m guessing gave them the excuse to search the car. Police say they found an unloaded 9mm handgun under the passenger seat. They also found a vape pen and a bag of cash. The gun was reportedly found under the passenger seat where Allen was sitting. But, like I said earlier, on record, both men have been charged with possession of a firearm. No word on bond amount or next court date at the moment.
Adults will be able to carry and share up to 30 grams of marijuana in public. Adults in the country will also be allowed to cultivate up to four plants in their households and prepare products such as edibles for personal use. That sound good to you? Well that’s about to be what’s happening in Canada come October.
CNN (@cnn) reports, recreational marijuana use will soon be legal in Canada after its Senate passed the bill on Tuesday with a 52-29 vote.
Canada is only the 2nd country in the world to legalize weed nationwide. Only 9 states in the U.S allow recreational marijuana use, and 30 states in the U.S allow medical use of weed. Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau said the bill will help keep marijuana out of the hands of underage users and reduce marijuana related crimes in the country.
The bill is scheduled to go into effect on October 17th. Think something like this will be coming to America anytime soon?
Former NBA player Glen Davis has come a long way from his glory days in the league. The former Boston Celtic and LA Clippers player was arrested in a Maryland Hotel last month and charged with drug possession and distribution. Davis was arrested on Feb 7th at the Hampton Inn in Aberdeen. ESPN (@espn) reported, that it was the smell of marijuana that got Davis in trouble. When the owner of the hotel smelled the aroma of something good in the air, his investigation led him to Davis’ room. The owner called the cops. When officers ran up in the room they found Davis, about a quarter pound of weed, and around $92,000 in cash. Davis was arrested and later charged with seven (7) counts of drug possession and distribution. What’s strange to me is the amount of weed recovered in relation to the amount of money recovered. Doesn’t that seem a little strange to you? 125 grams of weed is not that much herb. There are probably people who smoke that much in a few days. Why did he have so much money in the room when he was dealing with an amount of weed that small? Maybe he sold some before 5-0 ran up in the spot? But why have that type of money up in the hotel with you if that was the case? I don’t know…..maybe he was waiting on a customer to come through and buy the last quarter pound. Maybe he was up in the hotel slangin’ nicks and dimes. Either way, Big Baby got himself caught up in some mess. I still find it amazing that people who were making millions of dollars just a few short years earlier turn to illegal means of obtaining money so quickly after they leave the league. Why not invest in stocks or sell stuff on Ebay or something? Anything has to be better than having to spend MORE MONEY to fight a dummy case and have to pay to bail yourself out of jail because of a case you caught while trying to make some money. That seems like hustling backwards to me. Remember that Biggie Smalls lyric “Time to contemplate, damn, where did I fail? All the money I stacked, was all the money for bail.”
This is what keeps Jeff Sessions and The Justice Department up at night with concerns of the danger it proposes. WEED. Not the fact that your boss, the president of the United States is calling your Justice Department crooked, biased, and needs to be disbanded. WEED is the biggest concern. Not the fact that the president of the United States probably worked with Russia to undermine the democracy of this Country. Weed is the number one concern for Jeff Session’s Justice Department. Nothing will keep this Country safe, like cracking down on weed……….or, is it that nothing will fill up these private prisons that Sessions and others are surely invested in, like putting people away for possessing small amounts of marijuana?
Reuters (@reuters) reports, the U.S Justice Department on Thursday rescinded an Obama Administration policy that had eased enforcement of federal marijuana laws in states that have legalized weed, instead giving federal prosecutors wide latitude on pursuing criminal charges.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions overturned the policy. His actions drew immediate condemnation from marijuana advocates and some lawmakers in both parties who said it trampled on the rights of voters in states where weed is now legal and created uncertainty about how strictly federal drug laws will be enforced. The administration’s move also raised questions about how the new policy will impact the budding marijuana industry in places like California and Colorado.
