Louisiana Legislature Approves Modest Marijuana Policy Reform


Louisiana MarijuanaBy Robert Capecchi

Thursday, the Louisiana Senate overwhelmingly approved HB 681 — modest marijuana policy reform — with a vote of 30-7. The House previously approved the legislation in a near-unanimous vote, 92-1!

HB 681 would make positive, albeit modest, reforms to the way Louisiana treats a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge for someone who is on parole. Currently, acquiring a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge while on parole automatically results in parole revocation. If signed by Gov. Jindal, this legislation will give judges discretion to penalize parolees charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession with administrative sanctions instead of outright revocation.

While this is a small step towards sensible marijuana policies, it is at least a step in the right direction.

    The most pot users per capita has always been southern republican controlled states. Here in Rapides Parish, 80% of the sheriff department revenue comes from small time drug arrest. Drugs don’t destroy families nazi do, now none as sheriff, deputy, troopper, the differance between nazi and sheriff, deputy, troopper is one Likes to point guns kill, scare, have nightmares for life to four year old babies and likes to throw 80 pound little girl children to the grown, and then gets 10 more genocidal maniac born with out genital,penis defect, cause by inbreading older sister and mother being the same, other inbreading brother sister. Louisiana 8years ago true story personally witnessed it as it was un folding. My neighbor smoked weed, but he killed himself cause his son killed himself 7 months earlier, all over a joint, good family man, he only somked weed in his shop when working on something, he’s been smoking for 30 years that I know of and he was a genesis, literally he was working on some type of device that made energy, its been over eight years since he was telling me how it worked and I think it was this thing, reverse force magnetic flux renergen, I shit you not, after he made a organic sewage treatment plant and found a artesian well 28 feet down in his yard, that has almost as much pressure than my tape, and the water tested purer than bottle water and freezing ice cold right out the tap and tasted just like tap water. He had two kids one 11 and 18 they were always polite and respectful never heard him are his wife fighting are arguing, it was always laughter, even some bad singing. I said one day do your kids know you smoke, he said yes, but I don’t smoke it around them and if they happen to walk in when I am somking I put it out, and you know my wife she want let you on the porch with a cigarette. Make a long story short his 18 year old son stole some his weed and then went and picked up a 16 year old friend and road around got high and pulled over by the police, they searched them found one joints worth of weed on the 16 year old only, inpounded the car brought them to the police station and the 16 year old told them were they got it at, then they held them at the police station and wouldn’t let use the phone ontil the raid was finished, less than two hours after the two boys were kidnapped and water boarded and torchered by the nazi a swat team and sheiff deputies busted down his door while they were laying in bed, with AR15s it was a bunch of kids looked like, threw his wife on the floor and held her down as she was screaming trying to get to her sons bedroom, cause he has some kind of syndrome, they busted in her son room pointing AR15s at him and since he looks older and bigger than 11,they handcuffed him. Had to get a ambulance for his wife for a fractured shoulder, they tore his house to peaces took all the draws out and broke some of them all the clean linen books everything in every room was piled up in piles in every room, when they kicked in his sons room the door hit the kids Xbox and busting the face on it, hancuffed the dad with no shirt on for 2 hour in the front yard in the dartk and mosquitoes ate him alive, we live in the swamp, even though he was screaming at the about the mosquitoes, they finally gave him a shirt after two hours and then wouldn’t un cuff him to put it on, after his 90 year dad came and got the kids and my neighbor got back home and wife was released from the hospital, and food they had over $10,000 dollars worth of damage to their house $700 dollars missing out his wife night stand, $300 to get the car out. after all that I heard from over their at his house is screaming and hollering and fighting even heard her tell her son to get out, I helped him replace his front door which turned to be half the wall in his den, it ripped the frame and studs out the wall cause he had a steel door with double deadbolt, door wasn’t going nowhere with out the frame with it. His wife blamed him, his son blamed himself, his wife had a sling on and was always complaning how it hurts and has to sleep only one side. to shorten it up, Their son killed himself and my friend and neighbor killed himself a few months later, he got drunk one day and he never drank, called up to the sheiffs office telling them they murdered his son and destroyed his whole family, That told him it was his fault his son is dead and the he shouldn’t had marijuana in his shop, after all this all they found, take that back he told them were it was hopping they would stop destroying everything in his house. She moved out just about a week after bobby killed himself and I heard her only son now, moved in with a ant that he hasn’t seen since he was a baby in washington state and bobbies wife I heard is in some metal facility, his dad died just a couple years ago, but he sold the place to a preacher right after his wife moved out, the place is grown up worse than jungle, I’ve seen the preacher over there twice in 7 years, Bobby and linda worked there ass off everyday making that place beautiful for 23 years. This is what genocidal maniac cops do to families and there children, over a joint. how could you get any sicker than this, I was checking his mail for his daddy and would give it two him when he came by ever now and then, the nazi hitler headquarters sent bobby and his son a court summons date for trail, after they been dead for months. Their are no real police, nothing but punk street ganags with AR15s funded by our goverment to destroy happy families. Statistics show you have a 70% more of chance of getting killed by police if get pulled over are even questioned or if you need them for any reason, like you think someone is trying break into you house, good chance they show up and shoot you. than being a victim of a violent crime are 147% more chance than ever being in a terrorist attack. When 85% of the population will at one point in their life be confronted by a goverment funded murdering genocidal maniac, 50% more than once, 25% three times are more. Meaning you are alot safer with out goverment funded murdering genocidal maniac street punk swat gangs, It seems just like yesterday his son was over here talking to my son on what college he thinks he should pick.
    Louisiana ranks 48 out of 50 of having the stricts mawana laws and ranks 49 in the most incarceration for minor drug possession and 49th on having the most people on parole, yet survey shows 74% want it legal in louisiana and 56% want it legal to the public, now add another 10% to both, cause that’s how many people didn’t tell the truth and scared of being on some type of list, and I can’t blame them. Were I live 99.9 have smoked it, 60% smoke it regually, 20%casually, the other 20% don’t that still have friends and family that smokes,it. Ask any family in Louisiana do they have a family member that smokes cannabis and 90% will say yes.

  2. Louisiana legislature is still listening to law enforcement argument – that suspect perps always have weed on them ….. and if they can’t get them for a crime they know they committed a criminal will always have weed on them they can charge/convict them on and keep them off the streets for at least 6 months. I am saying that seems like a lazy way to think about doing your job !! Seems like law enforcement thinks they are a part of making laws – should be a law against them spending any of our tax money to lobby for laws …… not their job !!!
