Weed to be (Nearly) Penalty Free

  • Police won’t be able to arrest Illinoisans for having small amounts of marijuana if a bill passed by lawmakers gets Gov. Bruce Rauner’s signature.

    On Thursday, the Illinois Senate joined the House in passing a bill that makes possession of 15 grams or less of marijuana a noncriminal offense. Instead, police would issue a ticket and a fine of no more than $125.

    The Senate also sent Rauner a bill that would extend the state’s delayed medical marijuana program, which has an imminent expiration date.

    But it’s unclear whether Rauner will sign the pot bills.
Anyone else suspect this has a lot to do with the profit numbers coming out of Seattle and Denver? The politicians smell money.

SCC:

I was at the sergeant’s union meeting Thursday night.

You may have heard the radio commercials that state the City of Chicago wants its own casino.

It turns out that all 5 public safety unions’ (FOP 7, Fire Local 2 and the 3 PBPA Units) met with the City this week. The city has proposed that a casino will in fact be built. Sources say the votes are there to push it through in the state legislature.
Initially it would be a rush job and be placed at someplace McCormick place and eventually a new one would be built from the ground up.
ALL casino funds would go DIRECTLY to the police and fire pensions without the city getting their hands on it. (Hopefully that will be in writing.)

Here is the catch.. the city wants a five year grace period on paying the full amount due by December for the police and fire pension funds. The way it looks the unions will vote yes on this deal.

It would be smart for the city and our unions to put out commercials countering the negative radio commercials bashing Chicago and state the reason the Casino is necessary; to fund the public safety pensions.

The reason for the current negative commercials is because there are plenty other towns that want Casinos.
The commercials state that Chicago is trying to screw the “children”; probably because these other towns like Waukegan wish to use the cash from their casinos to fund education.

The bottom line is Chicago has the biggest hole to plug because of the pension fiasco.

What a disaster this city, and many others, have become. We no longer produce anything. We mainly redistribute wealth from the working saps to the deadbeats. Then the deadbeats play video games and smoke weed in the afternoon and terrorize the city in the evenings.

Rewarding bad behavior is not a great idea. Not about weed, just general attitudes and "solutions".

Illinois already has a tax law for cannabis and controlled substances:

$5 for every gram of cannabis;.
$250 for every gram of controlled substance.


Go ahead, try to enforce it. See how much money you can squeeze out of the dopers.

We don't need ANY new laws, what we need is enforcement, and it will never happen.

++++++ '...the Illinois Senate joined the House in passing a bill that makes possession of 15 grams or less of marijuana a noncriminal offense.' +++++

Stoo-pid question, which I'm sure has been asked before.

Since Illinois is joining all these states that are passing these pot decriminalization laws, but marijuana is still illegal per Federal Law -- even for small amounts, i.e.: 15 grams or less -- what happens when a Non-Druggie Pot Head becomes president, and we once again have a REAL U.S. Attorney General, who also wasn't a pot smoking loser in college, but someone who actually FOLLOWS & ENFORCES THE LAWS legally passed by congress, and he rightfully orders the DOJ to go after all these outlaw states, annnnnd once again orders the DEA to go after and arrest ALL DRUG USERS?

Now I wouldn't expect our legislators to consider any future ramifications -- like the FedGov withholding money until we get back in compliance, and we sure as hell don't need that! -- as a majority of 'our geniuses' in Springfield have the IQ of sticks and basically are a bunch of spittle drooling imbeciles. But surely legislators in other states have considered this.

They all can't be morons. Can they?

(ps: pot will never be legal per Federa Law)

We have politicians saying that we have too many black and brown people in jail due to marijuana laws.

The largest city in the State of Illinois has already decriminalized small amounts of marijuana.

The State of Illinois is about to decriminalize small amounts of marijuana as well.

The State of Illinois and City of Chicago are both in large amounts of debt and are looking for new revenue streams without major tax hikes.

Colorado and Washington State have both implemented successful legalization strategies while successfully raising funds for their states.


Am I missing something here? Why are they even discussing decriminalization when they should really be discussing legalization and taxation?

Every time a gang banger takes a hit from his joint he'd be helping pay for a police officers pension.

My concern is that this is just another bill of goods promised by the politicians. Also may I warn you that the casino industry is ever expanding. What assurance do we have that once the city gets one license to open up a casino then they won't open up another and another in a few years?

The Chicago area has plenty of casinos and no the revenue stream is not very consistent. It is a business just like any other business and the revenue stream goes up and down. Plus they have competition from other casinos. The best fucking solution- fund our pension like you were supposed to do in the first place. Stop playing games with my retirement. If you can find money out of thin air for all kinds of pet projects then you can find money for our pension.

I can enjoy a glass of wine, a bottle of beer or a snifter of brandy without getting stoned. The whole purpose of weed is to get you stoned. I see a big difference.

If I didn't have kids I wouldn't be worried about the future, or maybe I am more mature now and worry about those things. Legalized weed will bring big problems to this country. I believe it will severely impact our work ethic and it's bad enough already.

Police and Fire pensions have always been kicked down the road for the last 30 years. We have the law that finally stops the can kicking and it's time to pay. If the casino helps to make our funds more solvent once it's up and running, great. But we should not even consider gambling the pension payment due to our funds this year on a promise from the city. Our chances of collecting 5 years down the road by giving them a pension holiday would be suicide for our pension fund. To all my elected FOP Officers collect my pension money that is due NOW. You better NOT even consider letting the city off the hook.

Lay off the sauce before you post.

What you are trying to say is your 15% elective usage is number of PO's not RDO minus # of PO's on furlo minus # of PO's on medical minus # of PO's detailed minus # of PO's at training = total available. Your 15% is 15% of this 'total available'.

Now this is where it becomes interesting with some XO's/commanders. Lets say if 4 people off is 14% and 5 people off is 17%, some XO's will tell you that you can only have 4 off. However, the MOU says 15% is the MINIMUM. So, 14% is less than that minimum and the department should have to eat the 2% overage (person #5 bringing the percentage to 17).

And this is where you see if your XO/commander has on his big boy pants, or would rather have a grievance due to letting less than the minimum percentage allowed off. Ask your DSS to see the excel spreadsheet......

The crowd around fifty, to say, 60, aren't vigilant on this subject. Their children are more and more accepting of that and the practice now that's clearly going through most States. Most of the crowds mentioned above don't care about about this issue(Colrado, California, and Washington). The Western Part of The Country agrees with them because California will go "full boat" in 2016. The judges in Cook don't give a fuck about this type of smoking. At this point to place a voice on this topic is no different than "same sex marriage." Whether a person likes theses issues or not is irrelevant. It's the way The Country is going and if a person engaged in this type of behavior, as long as the person has a job, isn't violent, and can basically maintain some semblance of control is in the person's life. Judges won't do anything on the 1st one under 15 grams. The Copper can fill out a slip. That's it!
This needs to be considered. Our Pension Funds should get damn near 100% of the money generated from this category of revenue. This is a nice clean way to create a viable income stream. We are at crisis level in our pension funds, so let our funds feel this small stream of income. It's thirsty and for all we know this may be the only opportunity to get an income stream kicking. If the City hasn't allocated these funds directly to Our Pension something should be said by FOP #7 right quick. They're going this way, so fighting or disagreeing are now irrelevant and I want the money from this for 'Our Fund." We need some streams hitting that fund and get it down on paper in Springfield, The City, and I don't care if they have to issue another amendment to The constitution.
The Country is following in a "medical" or the more liberal States that are just allowing the use of this type of smoking. It's a very lucrative type revenue stream for to Colorado. Those "Fargin" a sneaky "basdages" will take this lucrative revenue source and force us to write the tickets, but Helllllls No are they willing to sit down and cut a legal, binding deal that grabs as much of this money for Our Pension Funds.
Show me that paper if I have to write tickets for sloppy smoking. They'll go up substantially if We know the money is a stream to repair "pension holidays.' Pension holidays were a way in which the people were taken advantage of. Why is anybody forgiving any one/enitity via "pension holiday." Some of the other common notions that were in the cheat shit of how to fuck the people over shall also be removed. There's still going to be a generation or 2 or three that are gonna need a job like this and God love us all we want to make sure those Generations did well and were properly represented.
I don't understand why Our Union under this "Dean Dude" just sits there devoid of any sound, not even at rattle to inform Management of simple BS implementations by the FOP Lodge#7.

Meh, where the money comes from for the pension isn't a police problem, it's a politician problem. They have to find the money, don't let them drag us into their problems, and don't let them off paying the money now, not later. These assholes don't actually care about solving the problems, they plan on looting for another 5 yrs then fleeing to Costa Rica or some such.

I couldn't have gotten so stinking rich without George Bush, George Bush Jr., Ronald Reagan, even El Presidente Obama, none of them have the cojones to stand up to all the big money that wants to keep this stuff illegal. From the bottom of my heart, I want to say, Gracias amigos, I owe my whole empire to you.

Over the past four years I've asked police officers throughout the U.S. (and in Canada) two questions. When's the last time you had to fight someone under the influence of marijuana? (I'm talking marijuana only, not pot plus a six-pack or a fifth of tequila.) My colleagues pause, they reflect. Their eyes widen as they realize that in their five or fifteen or thirty years on the job they have never had to fight a marijuana user. I then ask: When's the last time you had to fight a drunk? They look at their watches.

Norman Stamper worked in Seattle, which means his mind has been warped by liberalism and Starbucks coffee.
