Howard Simon: A.C.L.U. Exec. Dir. of Florida okays Medical Marijuana movement!

By Armani.
“By Howard Simon on June 12, 2013
Last week the American Civil Liberties Union issued a report (” The War on Marijuana in Black and White: Billions of Dollars Wasted on Racially Biased Arrests ” http://www.aclu.org/marijuana) confirming what everyone suspected: marijuana possession arrests are wasteful, destructive and marred by racial bias. The report, the first ever examining state and county marijuana arrest rates nationally by race, documents that while there were pronounced racial disparities in marijuana arrests 10 years ago – the problem has become significantly worse.”
 
Furthermore:
 
“Howard Simon has been a state affiliate Executive Director of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) for almost four decades.  He is the ACLU’s most senior Affiliate Director.  Howard has served as Executive Director of the ACLU of Florida since October 1997, and prior to his appointment as Florida ACLU Director he served as Executive Director of ACLU’s Michigan affiliate for 23 years. Howard was raised in New York, and graduated from the City College of New York. He received a Ph.D.”
 
 
 
 
A.C.L.U. of Florida Executive Director

Always plan 6-7 steps ahead.

Plan 6-7 moves ahead always

( Courtesy, Howard Simon / June 7, 2013 )Howard Simon has been a state affiliate Executive Director of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) for almost four decades. He is the ACLU’s most senior Affiliate Director. Howard has served as Executive Director of the ACLU of Florida since October 1997, and prior to his appointment as Florida ACLU Director he served as Executive Director of ACLU’s Michigan affiliate for 23 years. Howard was raised in New York, and graduated from the City College of New York. He received a Ph.D. degree from the University of Minnesota in legal and political philosophy and social ethics. Prior to his work with the ACLU, he taught philosophy at the University of Minnesota and was a faculty member in the Department of Philosophy and Religion at DePauw University in Indiana.

As Executive Director of the Florida affiliate of the American Civil Liberties Union, Howard has overall responsibility for ACLU’s legal, public education, legislative lobbying, and membership and fund-raising programs. Howard has been a frequent guest editorial writer in many Florida newspapers, and regularly appears in the media challenging politicians and government policies that assault constitutional freedoms. The ACLU of Florida has approximately 15,000 members, a staff of 30 and maintains staffed offices in Jacksonville, Pensacola, and Tampa in addition to its headquarters in Miami. The ACLU has been extensively involved in addressing the need for electoral reforms in Florida. Following the voting problems that occurred in the 2006 Congressional District 13 Election in Sarasota, the ACLU played a key role in securing the end of the use of paperless electronic voting systems in Florida, leading to the 2008 election in which every county used the same voting technology (the optical scan voting system) for the first time. The organization has also led efforts to end Florida’s Civil War constitutional provision requiring a lifetime voting ban of former felons.

The ACLU of Florida is in the forefront of efforts to resist many of the anti-civil liberties initiatives originating from the Legislature and the Scott Administration. The ACLU filed numerous cases challenging efforts to make it more difficult to register new voters, reduce the number of early voting days, specifically banning voting on the Sunday prior to the Tuesday November Election, and more difficult to have your voted counted by requiring more people to vote by provisional, rather than regular ballot. The ACLU has challenged the Governor’s Executive Order mandating drug/urine screen tests for state employees in the absence of suspicion of illicit drugs. Another ACLU lawsuit resulted in a federal order blocking the law requiring all applicants for Temporary Assistance for Needy families (TANF) to submit to a suspicionless drug/urine test.

Insane Bong & Pipe Ban signed by FL Gov Rick Scott. 2x = Felony!

Submitted by WildSatchmo in June 2013

That’s right, starting July 1st smoking devices are now illegal in Florida. Anyone found in possession of a pipe two times (even if it has never been used) becomes a third degree felon. In Florida, this means you are permanently banned from voting. For a fucking pipe.

With one swoop of the pen Rick Scott may have put thousands of companies out of business, and their employees looking for jobs. They also need to offload their entire inventory before July 1st when the bill goes into effect (yea, only a couple weeks from now).

The bill I’m talking about is FL HB49 / SB1140

Specifically the bill bans:

(a) Metal, wooden, acrylic, glass, stone, plastic, or ceramic pipes, with or without screens, permanent screens, hashish heads, or punctured metal bowls
(b) Water pipes.
(c) Carburetion tubes and devices.
(d) Chamber pipes.
(e) Carburetor pipes.
(f) Electric pipes.
(g) Air-driven pipes.
(h) Chillums.
(i) Bongs.
(j) Ice pipes or chillers.

Bill Text: http://www.myfloridahouse.gov/Sections/Bills/billsdetail.asp…

See for yourself. Governer’s Action: Approved
http://www.myfloridahouse.gov/Sections/Documents/loaddoc.asp…

From the final report:
Establishes the following five drug paraphernalia crimes:
1. use or possession of drug paraphernalia
2. manufacture or delivery of drug paraphernalia
3. delivery of drug paraphernalia to a minor
4. transportation of drug paraphernalia
5. advertisement of drug paraphernalia

Another disturbing revelation in the final analysis of the bill:

“…the Criminal Justice Impact Conference determined that SB 1140, which is similar to
CS/CS/HB 49, will increase the state prison bed population….”

The criminal justice committee met about the bill and noted in their summary:
“The bill may have a negative fiscal impact on state and local governments.”

“it may
have a negative prison bed impact on the Department of Corrections.”

“The bill does not appear to have any impact on state revenues.”
