Warrant Issued in Marijuana Case

Nevada became the ninth state where it is legal

 Two medical marijuana activists from California, arrested here in November on felony charges of possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia, failed to appear for arraignment in 5th District Court last week, prompting the judge to issue a warrant for their arrest.   Judge Robert T. Braithwaite also set a $5,000 cash-only bond for Kasey Conder and John Entwistle when they did not appear but later rescinded the order when Entwistle called from California to say he thought his case had been continued. The judge then set a Jan. 7 court date for both men.
Conder, 18, and Entwistle, 37, both from the Bay Area, were arrested at a motel here Nov. 14 when the owner called police about an odor of marijuana coming from their room. Cedar City police Sgt. Dave Holm said officers found nearly a pound of marijuana in the room and a vehicle.   Dennis Peron, the 55-year-old founder of San Francisco's Cannabis Cultivation Club, also was arrested for investigation of marijuana possession with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia. Peron helped draft California Proposition 215, which allows for the use of a few ounces of marijuana if prescribed by a doctor for medical reasons. His arraignment is scheduled for Jan. 8.   Peron and Entwistle have said the Utah Legislature should support a bill legalizing the use of medical marijuana in the state. So far the men do not have a sponsor for such a measure.   In nearby Nevada, Gov. Kenny Guinn signed legislation in June that allows seriously ill patients there to use marijuana for medical purposes. Names of patients are kept in a state registry. The measure also downgraded the charge for possession of small amounts of marijuana from a felony to a misdemeanor. Nevada became the ninth state where the practice is legal. A unanimous U.S. Supreme Court decision in May, however, ruled that a federal law classifying the drug as illegal has no exception for ill patients.

John Entwhistle is Pot History, too!
Aloha, And is he the bass player from the "WHO" or just one of the largest, most prolific, shrewd and slick marijuana dealers of all time? Maybe, both! He was the hatchet man at the CBC for years and did the majority of deals for and with Dennis Peron.He is uncommonly shrewd and made hard bargains on kilos of the best buds available for years. He would scereen the growers who brought in products and those who he did not like or who would not bend to his will were told to take a hike! But the bottom line is he is a brave , determined individual who really made the CBC work and complimented Dennis Peron very well. They must have seen every strain known to man! I was actually lucky to be a steady supplier and when he said to me "Jonathan, you should go back to Hawaii and start a Medical Club there and help your local folks out! I took his personal advise and have been the only public facility with a website and ads in the local paper for the last several years. Thanks to John Entwhistle for tuning me up and pushing me in the right direction. With all respects, Happy Holidays to Dennis and John and their families. Aloha from Paradise!

one pound of cannabis
Kasey Conder and John Entwhistle had some very fine smoking herb for some of the local stoners.They get arrested for having something that many people want for personal use, the number one cash crop in the world, marijuana. A quid pro quo is not too hard to comprehend. It ain't hurtin' nobody.Leave people alone if it ain't hurtin' nobody. The ground you stand on is guilty of the manufacture and distribution of cannabis.
