So you need to produce valid ID in order to present petitions to voters?
There is a rule that you have to divulge your history to government agents on demand or you lose your right to petition?
If your a jackhole to a cop, the 1st Amendment doesn't apply?

Noted. Thanks!

Seems like the male cop was professional.  He can ask for info, as long as they voluntarily comply so be it.  She was hostile the entire time.  Then they crossed the line.  Should have told them they cannot be on private property and left it at that.

Sad when stoners come out more professional than the police.  Not the stoners never called the officers names or violated their rights when they felt offended.


Notice how quickly Mr Professional jumps in to correct Miss Piggy's complete lack of regard for the law........

NOT.



As for The Chief's recently stated position on civil liberty,
either the deaprtment has had a complete reversal of their long-established, in-your-face disregard of civil rights


OR

The group hopes to gather the nearly 156,000 signatures required to get medical marijuana on the November ballot so voters can decide the issue.

Organizer Chip Paul tells KRMG the police have stopped bothering the petitioners, but (Oklahomans for Health) still wants to know why it happened at all.

They'd like to find out if officers took it upon themselves to try and run petitioners off, or if the orders came from higher up.

And, Paul says, the councilors need to know there's potential liability for the city if such harassment occurs in the future.

It's interesting (but not surprising) that as the majority of states are either legalizing or moving closer to legalization of medical marijuana, the Oklahoma narcotics bureaucracy scrambles to build a barricade of new laws to fend off reform.
Here's one the governor recently signed into law:

If it's good for the people.  Popular.  Or likely to enhance our attractiveness to outside investment.  We, as a state will always vote against it.

Salvia is now a Schedule I narcotic?    At some point wasn't that a houseplant?

We didnt get to vote on this overly-broad, capricious nightmare.

As written, you could twist a piece of paper and put it on a table, and if someone thinks it looks like a joint...

"We" is the collective we - people at the ballot box and legislators down in OKC.  Across the board astounding how we vote against our own best interest so much of the time.  Most of the time....

You flower children be careful, now, meanwhile...



EL RENO, Oklahoma - Agents arrested two Florida men who they said were smuggling $250,000 worth of pot products.
"This marijuana that they're producing today is like nothing we've ever seen before," Mark Woodward with OBN said.

Woodward said every single item they seized from the suspects' car contains marijuana like brownies, fruit juice, olive oil, butter, jam and candies that look like brand name candy.
"It shows who these people are marketing this to, because you don't put gummy bears out here and target 55-year-old men with this stuff," said Woodward.



55-year-old men in Florida with cancer, maybe.  

After all, dried prunes are definitely appealing to kids...

Want to bet he can find his way to the property room when he has a good friend with cancer?

It's hard to tell if they are that out-of-touch with reality, or just paid to be:
"Agents pulled over Robert Shepard and Andrew Mason on Interstate 40 in El Reno on Wednesday for following too close.
They said both men were acting nervous, so they brought in a K9 named Xena. The three-year-old OBN pup sniffed out 50 pounds of products in the men's car."

Glad to hear the probable cause came from OBNDD's routine patrol of the highway, and not a tip from illegal NSA surveillance.

All that warrant-less eavesdropping just to protect us from terrorist pot gummybears?

Here's the Lawless Hellscape Colorado Has Become Six Months After Legalizing Weed

It's now been six months since Colorado enacted its historic marijuana legalization policy, and two big things have already happened:
1. Colorado's cash crop is turning out to be even more profitable than the state could have hoped.
2. Denver crime rates have suddenly fallen.

I bet that is a fun graphic to watch while stoned.

Meanwhile, crime is falling in Colorado since weed became legal.  The exact opposite of what law enforcement and the prison cartel predicted.

My apologies if someone else beat me to this.  I think itís compelling.

although it might be plausible for it to go up...well, at least shoplifting of cool ranch and nacho cheese doritos would likely go up.
