Last week Denver police officers and federal agents descended on cannabis grow sites throughout the city — grow sites they say were operating illegally.
According to authorities, the raids were part of a two-year investigation that will still take a few more months to complete. No arrests were made, but you can be sure copious amounts of cannabis and equipment were seized; it’s hard to tell as officials are being tightlipped on details.
The U.S. Supreme Court decided Monday that it will not hear the lawsuit brought by Nebraska and Oklahoma against the state of Colorado and its legal marijuana laws.

Remember the asshole cops who raided a medical marijuana dispensary in Santa Ana, California, last year, destroying cameras, eating edibles and making fun of a blind woman who was missing a leg? Three of them have been charged with petty theft, and one is facing the additional charge of vandalism for breaking the cameras.
A 26-year-old Georgia man was arrested by the St. Mary’s Police Department after he claimed that the sandwich bag of marijuana they found in his car was salad.
Richard Relliford was pulled over for a traffic violation when police found a one-pound bag of weed in his car. Relliford tried to convince police that the bag was actually a bag of salad, and that’s not even the worst part.
The worst part is the St. Mary’s Police Department heckled him on Facebook. They posted picture featured below of the “salad” with a caption saying:
A couple of weeks ago we told you about plans to legalize medical marijuana growing in Australia for scientific research and clinical trial purposes.
