    La idea de responsabilizar a los países productores (y que Pence seguramente viene a repetir), está tomando fuerza en Estados Unidos y nos haría volver a la mano dura. Pero las estadísticas indican que el quid de la cuestión hay que buscarlo allá.

    SPD und Grüne für entspanntes Kiffen

    Other news

    Cannabis-Konsum milder bestrafen oder gleich ganz legalisieren: In den Bundesländern mehren sich die Rufe nach einem liberaleren Umgang. Baden-Württembergs Ministerpräsident Winfried Kretschmann (Grüne) sprach sich für eine Legalisierung von Cannabis aus, um den Stoff zu entkriminalisieren. Die Hamburger Landes- regierung erwägt, die Gesetzesregeln zum Konsum zu lockern. Mit dem neuen Bremer Regierungschef Carsten Sieling (SPD) hatte sich erstmals ein Ministerpräsident für die Legalisierung ausgesprochen – sofern der rechtliche Rahmen das zulasse.

    Kiffer sollen wie Falschparker bestraft werden

    Other news

    Hamburgs Justizsenator Till Steffen (Grüne) will das Kiffen zu einer Ordnungswidrigkeit herabstufen. "Es wäre wie beim Falschparken. Da kann abgewogen werden: Schreibe ich ein Knöllchen oder nicht", sagte Steffen der "Hamburger Morgenpost". Das bisherige System, wonach auch auf den Besitz kleiner Mengen Cannabis eine Strafanzeige folgen muss, ist aus Steffens Sicht gescheitert. "Das bringt nichts und macht viel Arbeit", sagte Steffen. Bei dem Thema Cannabis-Freigabe müßte im Ernstfall auch die CDU bewegen würde und einem Modellversuch zur kontrollierten Abgabe zustimmen würde.

    Durham Police has given users the green light to grow cannabis at home after declaring that officers will no longer proactively target small scale producers. In a move, which will be seen as a step towards decriminalisation, Durham's Police Commissioner Ron Hogg said it will only go after people if there is a complaint or if they are being "blatant", while the force will continue to tackle large scale cannabis farms.

    On June 25, 2015, the United States issued a formal request to the Mexican government for the extradition of Joaquín Guzmán Loera, known as El Chapo, who was being held at Mexico’s highest security prison. On July 11, less than three weeks later, Guzmán Loera released himself from the supposedly impregnable prison in President Enrique Peña Nieto’s home state, by means of a sixty-foot-deep tunnel that had apparently been dug from a half-built house a mile away, directly into the shower of his prison cell.

    "El Chapo" y el PRI, un pacto de impunidad

    16 Julio 2015
    Other news

    La fuga de Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán Loera cimbró al Partido de la Revolución Institucional (PRI). Sin duda las ramificaciones de grupos criminales alcanzan a diversos partidos; en el caso del Cártel de Sinaloa, encabezado por Guzmán Loera e Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada, sus alcances llegan al PRI. Basta recordar hechos recientes. Pasado el proceso electoral federal de 2012, cuando Enrique Peña Nieto se alzaba como triunfador y próximo presidente de la República, su partido cayó en desgracia: uno de sus militantes acompañaba a un familiar de "El Chapo", capturado en España.

    Italy takes step toward legalizing pot

    Other news

    Italy took a first step toward legalization of pot, leading Europe in what would be a groundbreaking change. The Intergrupo Parlamentare Cannabis Legale, a cross-party committee, agreed on a provisional text to legalize the consumption, growing, production and sale of cannabis under certain conditions. The text was signed by 218 members of parliament, and not just by the usual suspects. The proposal would allow growing cannabis at home or as members of "cannabis clubs" where a maximum of 50 people could cultivate and then share the product, with a strict prohibition on selling to the general public.

    Calling it an issue America can’t afford to ignore, President Barack Obama laid out an expansive vision for fixing the criminal justice system. “In far too many cases, the punishment simply doesn’t fit the crime,” Obama told a crowd of 3,300 in Philadelphia. Low-level drug dealers, for example, owe a debt to society, but not a life sentence or 20-year prison term, he said. The United States needed to reevaluate an “aspect of American life that remains particularly skewed by race and by wealth.” Working in Obama’s favor: tentative but optimistic signs of common ground between Republicans and Democrats.

    For decades, ketamine was only manufactured by pharmaceutical companies. Technically, it was too complicated to be made by amateur chemists. But in the past five years, that has changed. Chinese drug gangs have cracked the code, figuring out how to manufacture large batches of cheap ketamine. Drug traffickers don't bother to steal ketamine from legal sources anymore. Instead, they're making their own. It's largely a Chinese breakthrough.

  19. Marijuana study counters 'gateway' theory

    Marijuana may not be the "gateway drug" some believe it to be, a new study contends. Instead, teens smoke pot for very specific reasons, and it is those reasons that appear to prompt their decision to try other drugs, researchers report. For example, kids who use marijuana because they are bored are more likely to also use cocaine, while kids using pot to achieve insight or understanding are more likely to try magic mushrooms, according to findings published recently in the American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse.
