Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP)

Founded on March 16, 2002, LEAP is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization made up of current and former members of the law enforcement and criminal justice communities who are speaking out about the failures of our existing drug policies. Those policies have failed, and continue to fail, to effectively address the problems of drug abuse, especially the problems of juvenile drug use, the problems of addiction, and the problems of crime created by criminal control of illegal drug sales.

Although those who speak publicly for LEAP are people from the law enforcement and criminal justice communities, a large number of our supporting members do not have such experience. You don’t have to have law enforcement experience to join us.

By continuing to fight the so-called “War on Drugs,” the US government has worsened these problems of society instead of alleviating them. A system of regulation and control of these substances (by the government, replacing the current system of control by the black market) would be a less harmful, less costly, more ethical, and more effective public policy.

Please consider joining us and helping us to achieve our goals: 1) to educate the public, the media and policy makers about the failure of current policies, and 2) to restore the public’s respect for police, which has been greatly diminished by law enforcement’s involvement in enforcing drug prohibition.

The Human Solution International

The Human Solution International is a grassroots network of people that began in Southern California. Chapters have been chartered covering the Northern, Central, and Southern areas of California as well Arizona, Washington, Michigan and Ohio. You can become a member and start a chapter too! The purpose of THSI is to support each other through the trials we face as cannabis consumers and spread educational information about cannabis. California voters approved cannabis for medical uses in 1996, now more than 23 states and our nation’s capital all have compassionate use laws.

Recent studies have shown that cannabis compounds are not only safe, they are important to healing dozens of known human conditions through a system in the body known as the ECS or EndoCannabinoid System. After years of negative press, the truth is being revealed that the only danger related to cannabis is the risk of arrested by law enforcement. Many cannabis patients, cannabis consumers, supporters, and those who just want their tax money put to better use have already joined this group. Only by standing in solidarity against the unfair treatment of cannabis consumers can we stop penalizing good people with bad laws. Our tax dollars pay to arrest and incarcerate people for cannabis while the economy continues to fail. Your tax dollars are used to feed, house and provide limited medical treatment in prisons and jails while our public school budgets are cut year after year!
Cannabis and hemp should be legal across the nation!
No Victim = No Crime = Not Guilty!
Join us to help end cannabis prohibition for good!
No One Should Go To Jail For A Plant!

Driver Impairment Testing

DRUID Impairment Evaluation App

There has been a peer-reviewed evaluation of DRUID accepted for publication, testing alcohol-impaired volunteers at police academy wet labs.  The author is a local professor and DRE who has embargoed the paper and results until it appears, which hopefully will be in April 2019.  Micheal Milburn, Ph.D. also has a colleague at Johns Hopkins who has been using DRUID in his dosage- and placebo-controlled cannabis administration studies.  Milburn thinks that data collection is nearing completion and hopefully can be presented in an open-access online journal so it will be available right away.  The PDF file below contains graphs that show how well DRUID performs.

In terms of scientific validation, NIH/NIDA just funded Milburn’s SBIR grant for validation research on DRUID.  His scientific reviews for the proposal were stellar.  Here is Milburn’s argument.

This recent report from the Center on Media, Crime and Justice at John Jay College lists DRUID as the only objective measure of impairment for the roadside.

CANNABIS SCHOOL REFERRALS

Cannabis Career Institute

Cannabis Career Institute is an innovator in the field of marijuana schools. We originated in March of 2009, following on the heels of and continuing the tradition of Oaksterdam University, the most successful marijuana school in the world. With more of a focus on business technique, Cannabis Career Institute has set the trend by creating a step-by-step method of doing business and providing it on a silver platter for students! The guidelines for how to create, brand and market a collective are all presented here along with options on what to do first based on your timeline and budget. The goal of this marijuana school is empower the students by giving them the information they need to succeed in the world of cannabis. Whether they want to start their own medical marijuana delivery service, their own medical marijuana dispensary, their own medical marijuana edibles operation, their own medical marijuana grow-room or even their own medical marijuana school. Marijuana schools are popping up everywhere. However, they fail to recognize the fact that not only do you have to provide more than just general information about medical marijuana, you must present it in a way that is credible.

Most marijuana schools do not have a staff that has a lifetime of experience in each field: Delivery, Dispensary Management, Law, Marketing and Advertising, Marijuana Cultivation and Cooking. Cannabis Career Institute does. Many marijuana schools were created by people who have absolutely no background in the cannabis business at all! Cannabis Career Institute has trained many of the people who have now started these schools! We are proud to have provided this training and information to many of these marijuana schools. However, make sure to check about the backgrounds of the owners of some of these marijuana schools as it may save you a bit of time and money! Cannabis Career Institute’s definition of a marijuana school is one that provides a formula for success for its students. Their network of contacts is an invaluable support system that gives the students the ability to make informed choices about their business. Having the team there to answer their questions as they progress with the creation of their business is also something other marijuana schools don’t offer. When a student leaves CCI they will have a list of things to do and the confidence to accomplish those tasks. Cannabis Career Institute believes that knowledge is empowerment. Unlike most “marijuana schools” CCI encourages their students to succeed by showing them the full picture and letting them decide how to create their business. Cannabis Career Institute believes that by achieving your goals, “your success is our success”.

Green Style Analytics

We are a Medical Cannabis Analysis and Testing Service.

We pick-up your samples, you can arrange drop-off or we will travel to your site and analyze your cannabis, whether it is flowers, concentrates or most edibles. We are based in Central California — which allows us to easily access both southern and northern California.

Our mobile lab will set up at your site, analyze samples while you wait, and give you a printout of the results before we leave. If you prefer we can pick up your samples, and usually deliver your results within 24 hours. We operate SRI 8610C portable gas chromatography (GC) FID analyzer, which provides accurate measurement of potency. We analyze strains, most edibles, tinctures, and concentrates for CBD, THC and CBN levels. With a 200x USB microscope, we visually inspect flowers for foreign material and mold/fungus.

After analysis, we provide you a printout of the results, and, if requested a sheet of labels. We will also create custom reports, and labels as required.

If you do not have enough room for us to set up on site, or only have a few items to test, arrangements can be made to have your samples picked up and tested off site. Results will be texted, emailed and mailed to you as you prefer.
