    Pot-laced brownies turn up at another CO school

    UPDATED: 12/13/2012 06:48:27 AM MSTThe Associated Press

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.—Pot-laced brownies have turned up at another Colorado school. A 14-year-old girl in Colorado Springs was sent to the hospital Wednesday after eating a marijuana brownie at a high school.
    The (Colorado Springs) Gazette reports that another student is accused of giving her the brownie ( http://bit.ly/UCtLR2). The 14-year-old boy was arrested and released to his parents.

    Police tell the newspaper that the girl knew what was in the brownie before she ate it. She has not been arrested.

    A school district spokeswoman says the district has not seen a rise in marijuana incidents since approval last month of legalized marijuana for adults over 21.

    Last week, two students at the University of Colorado in Boulder were arrested for allegedly giving a professor and other students pot-laced brownies without their knowledge.

    U.S. should not act on pot use in Washington, Colorado: Obama

    (Reuters) - President Barack Obama says federal authorities should not target recreational marijuana use in two Western states that voted to make it legal, given limited government resources and growing public acceptance of the controlled substance.

    His first comments on the issue come weeks after Washington state and Colorado voters supported legalizing pot, or cannabis, last month in ballot measures that stand in direct opposition of federal law.

    "It does not make sense from a prioritization point of view for us to focus on recreational drug users in a state that has already said that under state law that's legal," he told ABC News in part of an interview released on Friday.

    "At this point (in) Washington and Colorado, you've seen the voters speak on this issue. And, as it is, the federal government has a lot to do when it comes to criminal prosecutions," Obama said.

    Marijuana remains an illegal narcotic under U.S. federal law, but Washington and Colorado on November 6 became the first states in the nation to make it legal for individuals to possess up to an ounce of marijuana for private use.

    The Department of Justice has maintained that pot remains a federally controlled substance, and states have been looking for guidance from federal authorities on how they will handle the conflict with state laws.

    Obama's comments do not mean that Justice Department officials have completed their review of the Colorado and Washington laws, a department spokeswoman said on Friday.

    Asked whether Drug Enforcement Administration agents were arresting people for possessing pot in Colorado and Washington, spokeswoman Dawn Dearden said "DEA's focus has always been to disrupt and dismantle large-scale drug trafficking organization—not to arrest individual users."

    Medical use of marijuana is legal in 18 U.S. states. But federal officials have still continued to crack down on some providers in those states.

    DOJ TO RESPOND 'RELATIVELY QUICKLY'

    Obama called the situation "a tough problem, because Congress has not yet changed the law." He told ABC that "what we're going to need to have is a conversation about" how to reconcile federal and state laws, and that he has asked U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to examine the issue.

    Holder has said the Justice Department is still considering its options but will act "relatively soon," possibly with a month.

    "I think we will come up with a policy that will be respective of federal law but also will make sure we are effective in our fight against crime that truly has an impact on the American people," he said after a speech in Boston on Tuesday. He is scheduled to speak later on Friday at an event in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

    Congress is also expected to weigh in soon. Senate Judiciary Committee Patrick Leahy on Thursday said he plans to hold a hearing soon after the next Congress convenes in January.

    In a separate letter to the Office of National Drug Control Policy, the Democrat said lawmakers could reconcile state and federal laws, for example, by amending the federal law to allow small amounts of marijuana in states that have legalized it.

    "In order to give these options full consideration, the committee needs to understand how the administration intends to respond to the decision of the voters in Colorado and Washington," Leahy wrote.

    Some supporters of the effort to loosen marijuana law welcomed Obama's comments even though it still remains unclear how his administration will act.

    Ethan Nadelmann of the Drug Policy Alliance said he is still worried Holder will act before considering the views of lawmakers and others.

    The president's comments are "definitely a tentative step forward," said Nadelmann, whose advocacy group backs U.S. drug policy reform. "It suggests that he's keeping his options open to be a little more forward on this."

    Still, Obama told ABC that he would not go so far as to say pot should be legalized altogether. There are also concerns about drug use in children and violence, the father of two told ABC, according to its website.

    Obama himself admitted to regularly smoking pot in high school in his 1995 memoir, "Dreams of My Father," but has expressed regret.

    "I want to discourage drug use," he told ABC.

    High Times' Cannabis Cup to be held in U.S. for first time. April 20-21 @ Denver, Colorado

    High Times is bringing its Cannabis Cup competition for recreational marijuana to Denver April 20-21, the first time the event has been held in the United States. For the past 25 years, it’s taken place in pot-friendly Amsterdam, where coffee shop owners and seed manufacturers compete for the title of Best Bud in The Netherlands.

    But Colorado is now more liberal about marijuana than even Amsterdam — where it’s illegal to grow pot in the Netherlands, it’s a constitutional right in Colorado. With the passage of Amendment 64 in November, adults 21 and older can possess up to an ounce of pot, grow a limited number of plants and smoke weed with virtual impunity, as long as it’s in private.

    Although a system for buying and selling recreational marijuana is still being worked out by a special task force that will offer recommendations to lawmakers next month, a smattering of bring-your-own pot clubs have sprouted up around the state.

    But since there are no legally recognized recreational growers yet, strains entered in the Cannabis Cup will come from Colorado’s robust medical marijuana industry, said Bobby Black, a senior editor at High Times.

    “Being that there isn’t really a system in place yet for sales, we’re sticking with the models that work,” he said.

    High Times has run a medical-strain competition here for the past three years. The only real difference for this year’s event is that anyone 21 and older can attend and smoke. Previously, only qualified medical patients could sample the entries.

    The Cannabis Cup will be held on April 20, the day in which tokers the world over light up in solidarity at 4:20 p.m. In Colorado and Washington, this year’s gatherings are more likely to celebrate their historic laws, even though in both states, 4/20’s entire point — smoking in public — remains illegal.

    Black said that despite the date, there will be no public marijuana consumption at the Cannabis Cup, which is being held at a private club in Denver, with a concert at Red Rocks Amphitheater. High Times wants to follow the letter of the state law, he said, even if possessing marijuana in any amount for any reason is still illegal under federal law.

    “Obviously this is new ground for all of us,” he said. “This whole situation is unprecedented, (but) I don’t foresee a problem. People have been smoking pot at concerts forever. I’m sure plenty of people have smoked weed at Red Rocks before.”

    “Pot tourism” by out-of-state smokers is considered a mixed bag in Colorado. Some worry about the state’s reputation as the Amsterdam of the Rockies while others welcome both the influx of tourism dollars and the chance to set an example of adult marijuana use that could be used as a model for other states considering legalization. The Cannabis Cup is likely to be first opportunity to evaluate the impact of out-of-state pot tourists.

    “We’ve done pretty well in Denver the past several years,” Black said, estimating that 4,000 to 5,000 people attend the medical cannabis cups. “But we’re expecting it to be a lot bigger. The ability for people now to come from out of state and enjoy a smoke without needing a (medical marijuana) card opens the floodgates for more attendees. We hope it will really blow up and be the start of something really big.

    “We think that people will see that these events are not going to harm anybody and that allowing legal smoking for adults is not going to unravel the fabric of their society,” he said.

    a teacher from overland high school is under investigation over a twitter account that contained provocative photos and posts about drug use. (9news)
    a cherry creek schools teacher must explain to district officials why a twitter page contained half-naked photos and a claim of possessing marijuana on school grounds.

    Carly mckinney, a 23-year-old math teacher at overland high school, admitted she agreed to create the twitter account carlycrunkbear (@crunk_bear) with a friend.

    The twitter page included provocative photos along with many posts about using drugs.

    One post said "naked. Wet. Stoned." another indicated the poster was high while grading papers. An additional post even talks about having marijuana on school property saying, "watching a drug bust go down in the parking lot. It's funny cuz i have weed in my car in the staff parking lot."
