Regulating Marijuana Works

Poll Finds Most Coloradans Upbeat About Legal Marijuana, Few Would Support Repeal

A new poll finds Colorado voters are still upbeat about their decision to regulate and tax marijuana for adult use, and few would support repealing Amendment 64, the legalization initiative approved in November 2012.

DEA Rejects Petition to Reclassify Marijuana, But Will Remove Barrier to Research

The Drug Enforcement Administration will take steps to increase the supply of marijuana available for research purposes, but it will not remove marijuana from Schedule I.

Illinois Governor Signs Bill Decriminalizing Marijuana

Gov. Bruce Rauner signed a bill into law that removes criminal penalties for possession of a personal amount of marijuana and replaces them with a civil fine.

Colorado Government Finds Teen Marijuana Use Has NOT Increased Since Legalization

Rates of marijuana use among Colorado teens have NOT increased since the state made marijuana legal for adults, according to results of a statewide survey released by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE).

“Marijuana in its natural form is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man. By any measure of rational analysis marijuana can be safely used within a supervised routine of medical care. It would be unreasonable, arbitrary and capricious for DEA to continue to stand between those sufferers and the benefits of this substance in light of the evidence in this record.” DEA Chief Administrative Law Judge Francis L. Young, Ruling in the matter of Marijuana Rescheduling Petition, September 6, 1988

New York Civil Statute of Limitations Laws #new #york #business #laws, #new #york #property

New York Civil Statute of Limitations Laws

In every state, there are time limits for the filing of lawsuits and other civil actions called statutes of limitations. New York’s civil statute of limitations laws are largely in line with those in other states. Depending on the type of case or procedure, New York’s statutes of limitations generally range from one (1) year to six (6) years. The point at which the clock starts ticking typically is the date of the incident or discovery of a wrong.

What If I Miss a Deadline To File a Civil Lawsuit In New York?

A piece of advice: don’t miss the deadline for filing your lawsuit. However, if you fail to bring suit within a prescribed time period, then the opposing party can assert the statute of limitations as a defense.

The opposing party can file a motion to dismiss the case alleging that the time allowed by law to bring a suit has passed. Once the judge dismisses the case, your legal claim is lost forever.

Injury to Person

3 yrs. N.Y. Civ. Prac. L. R. §214

1 yr. N.Y. Civ. Prac. L. R. §215

6 yrs. N.Y. Civ. Prac. L. R. §213

Injury to Personal Property

3 yrs. N.Y. Civ. Prac. L. R. §214

3 yrs.; medical: 2 1/2 yrs.; foreign object in body of patient 1 yr. N.Y. Civ. Prac. L. R. §214(6) and §214-a

3 yrs. N.Y. Civ. Prac. L. R. §214

Collection of Rents

6 yrs. N.Y. Civ. Prac. L. R. §213(1)

Written: 6 yrs. N.Y. Civ. Prac. L. R. §213; Oral: 6 yrs. N.Y. Civ. Prac. L. R. §213

Collection of Debt on Account

6 yrs. N.Y. Civ. Prac. L. R. §213(1)

20 yrs. N.Y. Civ. Prac. L. R. §211(b)

Note: State laws surrounding when to file a lawsuit are constantly changing — contact a New York attorney or conduct your own legal research to verify the state law(s) you are researching.

New York’s civil statute of limitations often depends on the nature of your claim and can be quite confusing. However, missing a deadline could mean you are barred from filing your case. If you are dealing with a personal injury or other dispute that may merit compensation, it’s in your best interests to contact an injury attorney for a free claim evaluation .

A look at the potential changes in California’s sex offender registry – ACSOL #alliance

A look at the potential changes in California’s sex offender registry

Did anyone happen to catch Scott Weiner on KABC this afternoon talking to John Phillips and Jillian Barberie?
I just caught the tail end when they were summarizing their discussion and making the point that rapists and aggravated children molesters would not be coming off the list.
I ve heard Barberie frequently rail against RCs, perpetuating the typical myths and ignoring facts.
Would love to heard the whole interview.

David Kennerly’s Spectral Evidence June 21, 2017

I tried to find it online at their site but, no luck. It does appear that it will be available later since there is a four-day delay between the broadcast and its availability as a podcast.

Here is the address where it will appear, hopefully, Saturday, but perhaps on Monday:

I am concerned about any pressure being exerted to ensure that certain classes of offenders will never get off the registry. I am keen to hear Scott Weiner speak to that and see how far he is willing to stand on principle.

Someone mentioned here an adverse change that had crept into the bill. If someone who has done a side-by-side comparison between the most recent version, as passed in the Senate, and its earlier form, I would appreciate hearing it. Thanks!

When viewing the bill on the official site, they actually have an option to see the difference between versions. It s a drop-down box option in the Compare Versions tab. It uses the current bill and compares it to whatever previous versions were available. All the changes are in blue.

The two biggest changes I noticed is that they add a lower time frame for juvenile offenders (5 and 10 instead of 10 and 20 like for adults), and a few revisions involving 647.6. Now if you have multiple convictions at separate times of 647.6, it ll automatically land you into tier 2 (a single conviction is tier 1). They also added 647.6 to the tier 2 internet exclusion portion. It seems to read like 647.6 convictions will still remain on the public site, but Ms. Bellucci replied to this question and said that currently if you re tier 1 you will not be included on the public site. I guess we ll see when it passes, if it remains in the current form.

Just listened to KFI John and Ken from yesterday (6/20) and Erin Runnion talk about AB421 and making her false point that the tiered registration will unleash all sex offenders on the public. No mention of the facts about how much it will take to get off the registry. I know there was another call this morning on KFI from Erin and I did not hear it but the same I am sure as last night.
Need to get Janice on KFI and bring the true story to the public; probably will not invite her but need to try and get on that station

I Emailed KFI and got a reply that they do not WANT Janice on the JohnandKen show guess they are fearful of the truth

================================
Erin Runnion talk about AB421 and making her false point that the tiered registration will unleash all sex offenders on the public.
================================

Ummm I hate to break this news, but every registrant not under custody (and some under parole/probation) are already part of the public. Ask Frank Lindsay how long he s been on the registry and part of the public.

It s quite an asinine thought stating sex offenders will be unleash upon the public when we ve already been part of the public. But seriously, they going to unleash under 1% recidivists onto the public! That s from the CASOMB s report. Is that a scary thought? (a rhetorical, sarcastic thought)

Should email KFI a question: Once you ve paid your dues to society, should be forced to continue to serve the state?

Also, have them define what s is an inalienable right .

It seems odd to me that this Moulton person is the only real vocal opponent to the tiered registry. Even those couple of people they paraded out to oppose the bill in the safety committee were weak at best, and the usually spirited Mark Klaas kind of just threw in the towel. Can they not find anyone to passionately articulate an opposing argument? I thought there would be enormous opposition to the removal of 90 percent of sex fiends from public disclosure. They sure are controlling the narrative quite well.

Regarding the interview, when Ms Moulton admitted that perhaps teen sexters should not be subject to the harshness of the registry, her solution was that, that is something that should be fixed that through legislation. Considering her advocacy for children, has SHE done anything to get that changed? Lobbied the law makers perhaps? My best guess would be NO. I also think her sex offender baby sitter story that was articulated with a strange tone in the inflection in her voice was dubious at best. Her worries about the potential dwindling public registry shows where her true concern lies. It doesn`t matter whether someone is dangerous or not, because just like the rest of the pathologically curious public, they have been programmed to feel entitled to know everything about everyone. If there was a way to find out every trifling detail about all our neighbors and work colleagues with the click of a button- most people would use it. The fear about ones safety is just an delusory excuse- it is really a fear of the unknown which makes people feel at dis-ease with themselves. But alas, there are poor souls entering the system everyday as new registrants. There will be plenty to be had of new facades. tattoo locations. and aliases to make the public feel better about themselves in short order.

Her story was short on details and big on fear. What was that person convicted off? Was it molesting young children or streaking at the ball game? Was he just released or was the conviction 30 years old?
