For immediate release: August 21, 2014

{Denver} — There will be a preliminary injunction hearing in Denver District Court on Friday in a lawsuit brought by marijuana civil rights activists seeking to protect their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. Plaintiffs will argue in front of The Honorable Judge John Madden IV that payment of marijuana taxes violates a citizen’s Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, since marijuana remains illegal under federal law.


Date: Friday, August 22, 2014
Time: 9am to 12noon
Location: Denver District Court (Old Building)
1437 Bannock St.
Denver, Colorado
Courtroom #203: The Honorable Judge John Madden IV

Note: Please dress nicely and maintain quiet in the courtroom. Bring a photo ID with, as you may have to show it to get through courthouse Security.

Attorney Robert J. Corry, Jr. filed the lawsuit on June 9, 2014 seeking to permanently end Colorado’s marijuana taxes, on the grounds that payment of the taxes forces citizens to incriminate themselves as criminals under federal law.

The complaint was filed on behalf of an unnamed licensed medical and retail marijuana center, the “No Over Taxation” issue committee (which campaigned against Proposition AA, the marijuana tax issue approved by Colorado voters in 2013) and several individuals, including Kathleen Chippi, Larisa Bolivar, Miguel Lopez and William Chengelis.

Corry is seeking unspecified damages and a refund of all tax monies collected by the state.

If successful, Corry’s lawsuit could be the basis for overturning ALL regulations regarding marijuana licensing and registration in Colorado on the same grounds. As long as marijuana remains illegal under federal law, states cannot require people to give any information about themselves in order to distribute or purchase marijuana. ANY and ALL requirements to identify oneself would result in a “real and appreciable” risk of self-incrimination, and would require a citizen to implicate himself in federal crimes.

As witnesses, the State of Colorado has called attorneys Brian Vicente and Christian Sederberg, two self-proclaimed “marijuana lawyers” who helped campaign for Amendment 64, to provide testimony to support the State’s assertion that payment of these taxes is not incriminating.

Read more about the Fifth Amendment here:

Corry cites a 1973 Colorado Supreme Court case (People vs. Duleff) that overturned a man’s conviction for “selling marijuana without a license” because compliance with the licensing requirement would have required that person to violate his constitutional right against self-incrimination and reveal a violation of federal law. Corry writes, “The Colorado Supreme Court held specifically that the Fifth Amendment prohibits state licensing requirements that force a person to reveal a violation of federal law.”

From the Duleff decision, Corry quotes the Colo. Sup. Ct.: “The Fifth Amendment prohibits licensing requirements from being used as a means of discovering past or present criminal activity which is subject to prosecution by calling attention to the licensee and his activities….There is no doubt that the information which Duleff would have been required to disclose would have been useful to the investigation of his activities, would have substantially increased the risk of prosecution, and may well have been a direct admission of guilt under federal law. The Fifth Amendment protects individuals from such compulsory, incriminating disclosures and provides a complete defense to prosecution.”
– Colorado Supreme Court (1973)

Corry also cites a 1969 US Supreme Court case (Timothy Leary v. United States) in which the highest court in the country overturned Leary’s marijuana possession conviction and ruled that the federal Marihuana Tax Act of 1937 was illegal, due to the fact that a person seeking a tax stamp and complying with the law would be forced to incriminate himself, in violation of the Fifth Amendment.

Corry writes, “Marijuana-specific taxes require plaintiffs and any other person paying said taxes to incriminate themselves as committing multiple violations of federal law, including but not limited to, participating in, aiding and abetting, or conspiring to commit a ‘continuing criminal enterprise’ and ‘money laundering.’ These illegally-collected taxes are ultimately laundered by the State of Colorado through J.P. Morgan Chase Bank, which also participates knowingly in the continuing criminal enterprise.” Item 67, Corry complaint filed 6/9/14.

Corry concludes, “It is illegal for government to retain tax monies illegally collected in violation of the constitution, so all amounts must be returned, and all records related to previous tax payments, destroyed.”

Corry asks the Court to:
“Enter a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, and/or permanent injunction ordering the Defendants, and all those acting in concert with them, to cease and desist from enforcement of the marijuana tax statutes, to cease and desist from any further collection, deposit, or laundering of the marijuana taxes, for a full refund of marijuana tax monies paid by any person or entity, and for destruction of all tax records and identifying information after full refunds are made.”

“The state can’t have it both ways. If it’s illegal under federal law, you cannot collect taxes on it,” says Kathleen Chippi, a plaintiff and member of the Patient and Caregiver Rights Litigation Project. “We have another case pending in the Colorado Supreme Court now, Coats v. Dish Network, where Colorado Attorney General John Suthers argues that medical marijuana patients can be fired from their jobs for using medical marijuana off-duty, even though it is legal under state law. Suthers argues in the Coats case that, since marijuana is still illegal under federal law, patients have no rights.”

“Yet Suthers and Hickenlooper, as kingpins in their continuing criminal enterprise, happily collect and spend the marijuana taxes, even though they were collected in spite of multiple clear violations of federal law,” Chippi concludes.

The majority of the US now believes we should legalize pot in a bid to lower crime rates and hard drug use. The amount of marijuana users in America now totals an estimated 18.9 million and, it stands to reason that if pot was made legal, marijuana-based crime would fall dramatically. The trial in Colorado reflects this prediction, with a 77% drop in crime since pot was legalized. However, what the Colorado experiment has also shown is the government is able to earn millions in revenue; this mainly comes from taxing the product – similar to alcohol. The question is: how will this revenue be used? Many states adjust alcohol laws and tax when they need extra money and it looks like pot will go down the same road. Will this money be put to good use or will pot users just be exploited?


The best way of judging where the tax on pot might go is to look at a substance which was previously prohibited and now isn’t: alcohol. Much in the same way pot is now being sold in Colorado, alcohol was and is used to general money. According to the government, the tax on alcohol, known as ‘sin tax’ goes towards healthcare, programs and education. However, would marijuana tax also be put to the same use? In Colorado, although the first $40 million dollars was said to go towards building schools, it’s estimated that far more than this will be generated and the public population of Colorado is none-the-wiser as to where this money will go. The main concern is that it will go towards unneeded, irrelevant government expenditures and not into helping the state. Therefore, it’s unclear that if pot was legalized where our pot tax would be going and whether we would merely be exploited for our use of the substance.

To get around this, Profession Kleiman, Professor of Public Policy at the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs suggests we avoid ‘dumb’ pot legalization. In order to do this, America needs to approach small, nonprofit growers, state-by-state and not large corporate companies where the product could lose its ‘character’. Kleiman describes a ‘beer-like oligopoly’ in which people can’t tell the different types of pot apart and it becomes one, nationwide product. The public also needs reassurance that the tax will go towards treatment, programs and general help for those who want it.

Products: Shine – 24K Gold Rolling Papers

Items Provided by:


Stoner Score: 4 out of 5 pot leaves!



Launching in 2011, Shine Papers is the inventor of the worlds first ever 24 karat gold rolling paper. The brand quickly gained popularity and became the “go to” brand for those who celebrate all of life’s highs.

Not only do Shine Papers turn every head in the room, but the papers also burn extremely slow while also leaving behind a “gift” in the ashtray. Yup, the gold stays on your ashes which is refered to as “the gems,” but unfortunately you cannot pawn your ashes (the question gets asked all of the time).

Enjoy your Shine papers and the Shine team looks forward to seeing your pictures on Instagram! #goldlife



Shine 24K Gold Rolling Papers provide a unique rolling experience. You roll your joint just as you would with any “regular” paper and then spark it up. It smoked quite nicely and the gold leaf burned very evenly as described by the distributor.

Are these rolling papers necessary to enjoy smoking your herb? Nope. Is it something that will promote you as one who smokes with absolute style? Hell yeah! In fact, I think Shine Gold Rolling Papers will become MY go to  for all “high class” events. Why would Bud S. Moker, Th.C. settle for anything else?

At a price of $4.60 per leaf, these papers may be cost prohibitive for some. However, isn’t that the idea? If everybody was burning 24K gold papers, they would lose their luxury status.


BUD SAYS: I found these papers to be slightly more difficult to roll than your average paper. However, once I got the edge tucked in, it rolled quite well.

Toke to ya soon,

Bud S. Moker, Th.C.

BUD SAYS: Sort out your shake and/or grind up your buds before attempting to load the Pack N Stash. Attempting to de-stem your stash while loading the unit could result in a spill.

First year of sales would generate $38.5 million in tax revenue

Tax money would go to schools, police, drug treatment and mental health


A comprehensive analysis released today by ECONorthwest, has found that marijuana regulation in Oregon would generate $38.5 million in excise tax revenue in the first full fiscal year of 2017. In the first biennium (2017-19), it would generate $78.7 million.

The study specifically examines regulated sales of marijuana under the “Control, Regulation, and Taxation of Marijuana and Industrial Hemp Act” that Oregonians are expected to vote on in November 2014.

According to the analysis, most of the marijuana would be bought at retail outlets; however, 3.22 percent of the marijuana consumed would be grown at home as outlined in the Act.

The analysis is narrow, only investigating the direct fiscal impacts generated through the excise tax. The report does not examine the operational impact of the courts, police or jails.

Under the measure, 40 percent of the tax revenue collected would go to schools; 35 percent would go to state and local police; and 25 percent would go to drug treatment, prevention and mental health programs.

According to the Seattle Times, in the first 10 days of marijuana sales in Washington, the state has taken in $318,000 in excise taxes.

A graphic representation of the findings, executive summary and full report are available on ECONorthwest’s website.

Since becoming the first state to legalize marijuana for recreational use six months ago, Colorado has benefitted greatly from changes to its drug laws. Colorado residents and visitors are on track to consume 130 metric tons of the drug in 2014, and taxes on the sale of marijuana may generate as much as $70 million in revenue for the state. Crime rates in Denver are down 10 percent overall, the tourism industry is booming, and marijuana-related businesses are creating new jobs.

With all the good news about marijuana law reform efforts, it’s easy to forget that there can still be legal consequences for using marijuana in Colorado. Some of the most serious are criminal charges called driving under the influence of drugs (“DUI-D”) and driving while ability impaired (“DWAI”). This post will discuss drugged driving law in Colorado and how marijuana users can avoid being accused of DUI-D or DWAI.

Photo courtesy of:


Under Colorado law, it only takes a trace amount of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, to put someone over the legal limit. If a blood test of a driver shows five or more nanograms of THC per milliliter, he or she is considered to be impaired. Unlike with alcohol, which has a very apparent impact on driving ability, it may be hard to tell whether it is safe for someone who has used marijuana to get behind the wheel. Because it’s not known how exactly how much marijuana it takes to reach the legal limit or how long marijuana remains in the bloodstream, both recreational and medicinal users must take certain precautions to stay on the right side of the law.


It is important to understand that even if you last consumed cannabis days ago and no longer feel impaired, THC can linger in your system. After any noticeable effects of marijuana wear off, you should wait as long as possible before operating a vehicle. Make sure that there are no obvious problems with your vehicle like a broken taillight or an expired license plate that could lead to you being pulled over. Never drive with a marijuana-related bumper sticker. Do not drive if you smell like marijuana. Consider showering, or use deodorant or perfume, if anyone around you has smoked recently. The scent of marijuana can contribute to the probable cause to give a police officer reason to test your blood.

Be extremely cautious when transporting any amount of marijuana or marijuana-infused products. Avoid driving with pipes, bongs, vaporizers, and other marijuana paraphernalia. If an officer pulls you over and sees any of these items in plain sight, he or she may search your car to make sure that you have no more than one ounce of marijuana in your possession as allowed by Colorado law. Having marijuana on your person or in your vehicle draws attention to the fact that you might be driving under the influence of THC.


If you are pulled over, try to stay calm and remember that you have certain rights. Comply with the officer’s requests to see your driver’s license, registration, and proof of insurance, but know that you and your passengers have the right to remain silent. Never consent to a search of your car or give an officer permission to look in your trunk. An officer may try to perform what is known as a Drug Recognition Evaluation, which is similar to a field sobriety test, while you are pulled over. This is voluntary and you are not required to complete the evaluation. But know that if you are arrested for driving under the influence of marijuana, Colorado law requires that you submit to a blood test. This test typically must be conducted within two hours of when you last drove. While under arrest, continue to exercise your right to remain silent, and don’t talk to police officers until a lawyer is present.


In the unfortunate event that you are charged with DUI-D or DWAI in Colorado, an experienced DUI defense attorney may be able to help. A lawyer can determine whether your constitutional and statutory rights were respected by law enforcement officers, and will search for flaws in the administration of the Drug Recognition Evaluation and/or blood test that can affect the credibility of the prosecution’s case against you. With the right legal representation, it is possible to be acquitted of Colorado DUI-D or DWAI charges.

Even in places where medical marijuana has been legalized – states such as Colorado, California, Rhode Island, Hawaii and New York – getting your hands on supplies like weed baggies, airtight bags, and odor proof bags can be a hassle. Regardless of where you live, it’s highly unlikely that there are as many marijuana supply stores as there are pizzerias.

Virtual supply companies are making it easier to get supplies like vaporizers, rolling paper, baggies, and other smoking accessories without leaving the comfort of your home. You may have heard about a viable workaround, better known as smoking subscription boxes. Subscription box companies ship fun products to your door for a small monthly fee. Some have also started shipping airtight bags and odor proof bags that conceal pet droppings, keep makeup fresh, and take the smell out of used baby diapers. The biggest question is: which smoking subscription box is right for you?

Major subscription box companies include The Hot Box, Kush Cargo, BurnBox, 420

Goody Box, and Cannabox. Fans of Wiz Khalifa might prefer Kush Cargo. Limited edition Wiz Khalifa rolling papers and rolling trays are part of the Kush Cargo product line. One common feature that these box companies offer is the chance to receive supplies on a regular basis at reduced prices. You also have to select the duration of time for which you would like to receive the box supplies, which may impact price.



It’s important to note that price, while important, isn’t the only point to consider when looking for a smoking subscription box. To save you time, we’ve checked out offerings from top companies and shared the results with you below.

The Hot Box – Offers a monthly membership. Has a stock of more than 420 products and 710 accessories. Box types are Green, Gold and Platinum, with prices starting at $25 per month and moving up to $120 for six months. Seven to 10 products are shipped to members on the 23rd of each month.

Kush Cargo – Has three cargo or subscription boxes: OG, Dab and Combo Box. Prices start at $18 and go up to $36 per box. Giveaways and prizes are offered to members. Email, name, age and password are needed to join. Kush Cargo also asks members to share their Instagram handle when they sign up. Shipments go out on the 15th of the month. The first payment is required on the day you join.

Burn Box – You get the chance to choose the types of products and accessories that are included in your smoking subscription box. Super Burnbox, Stay Glassy and Keep it Rollin are the three box types at Burn Box. Prices start at $18 and go up to $28. Monthly and one year subscriptions are available. Products and accessories ship on the 1st day of each month.

420 Goody Box – Before you enter the site and sign up for a subscription, you have to confirm that you’re at least 18 years old. At their official website, 420 Goody Box says that the value of its subscription products ranges from $40 to $75. There’s one month, three month and six month subscription plans. Prices start at $27.13 per month, with shipping and handling included, and go up to $150.78 for six months. Anywhere from five to eight different products are shipped out to members each month.

Cannabox – This is another company that requires you to confirm that you’re at least 18 years old before you can enter the site. In addition to receiving five to eight products each month, members can also win a free subscription box. At Cannabox, you can choose between a monthly, three-month or six-month plan. Prices for the plans start at $19.88 a month and build up to $136.98 for a six-month subscription. Depending on when you sign up, your subscription will go out on the 20th day of the current or following month. For example, if you sign up by the 17th day of the month, your subscription will go out on the 20th day of the month you sign up in.



Memberships with these companies generally renew automatically unless you cancel your subscription. That being said, don’t be surprised if the number of companies offering smoking subscription boxes that ship out products like weed baggies, rolling paper, airtight bags and odor proof bags increases as more states begin to legalize medical and recreational marijuana. At that point, you might have to perform another comparison, checking to make sure that you are getting the best value for your money. As with household, automotive and beauty products, you want quality; purchased products should live up to their marketed promises. Keep your eyes on new products that hit the market. Continue to price compare and pay attention to companies that show their appreciation for their customers by giving them freebies, steep discounts and loyalty rewards.

Products: Snoop Dogg G Pen Dry Herbal Vaporizer
Items Provided by: Vape Club

Stoner Score: 5 out of 5 pot leaves!



We are very pleased to announce that we have upgraded our offering to the dry herb aroma therapists out there and have replaced the Vapourmax 1 with the all new Snoop Dogg G Pen.

Designed by Snoop himself and produced by Grenco Science, the G-Pen has received outstanding feedback and rave reviews around the globe it is one of the highest rated dry herb vaporizers available, and at such a low price it is unbeatable value.

The G-Pen is as stealthy as they come and is easily concealed in a pocket or small bag, making it perfect for when you are on the move or just don’t want to overburden yourself with too much to carry.

The Kit Includes:

    • 1 x G-Pen Battery
    • 1 x G-Pen Herbal tank
    • 1 x UK Wall Adaptor
    • 1 x Wired USB Charger
    • 2 x Screw Cap Mini Glass Storage Jars
    • 3 x G-Pen Cleaning Tips
    • 1 x G-Pen Credit Card Herb Grinder
    • 1 x Cleaning Brush
    • 1 x G-Pen Tool



I am just getting the best products to review lately! The Snoop Dogg G Pen lists for £29.99 ($51.38 as of the posting of this blog) and it is an amazing value. I tried it over the weekend on five separate occasions and it worked flawlessly each time.

A few of the coolest features are not even listed in the product description:

  1. The metal band on the vape pen is engraved with Snoop Dogg’s signature.
  2. The design on the pen itself is actually a map of Long Beach (where Snoop grew into his fame and fortune).
  3. If you click the button 5 times quickly, it locks/unlocks the pen so it won’t accidentally fire up in your pocket.

For the vaporizer enthusiasts, it should be noted that the Snoop Dogg G Pen actually touches the dry herb and heating element together. Because of this design, you should expect to do equal parts “vaporizing” and “smoking” with this G-Pen.

BUD SAYS: As much as I hate to give another stellar review, the Snoop Dogg G Pen exceeded my expectations and earned its ’5-leaf’ status.

Toke to ya soon,

Bud S. Moker, Th.C.

The Ultimate Secret Pocket

What if there as a way you could protect your stash 24/7? Now there is… Stealth Pants – Secret Pocket Underwear!

Stealth Pants are pants (boxer shorts) that have been modified to include a secret pocket on the inside, perfect for stashing your private goods.

If you’re going on a night out, going to a festival, or going travelling, Stealth Pants can store small items in the secret pocket.

Perfect for times when your goods need to be hidden, or you just don’t have any pockets.

What can they be used for?

They can be used to stash anything you like, Money, Phone, ID, Jewelry and more. Remember the pocket is small, so don’t be too outrageous.

How much do they cost?

1 pair of Stealth Pants is currently £9.99 on special offer. Or, save huge on our 3-Pack Deal for just £24.99.  You can also buy a Stealth Pants T-shirt for just £14.99.



Stealth Pants are a great idea; Boxer shorts that can hold your stash… whatever that stash may be. The pocket is rather larger than I expected and has an elastic band allowing it to easily conform to different shapes. I would not suggest stuffing the pocket too full however, because some security guards like to get really friendly.

Another note is that these boxers DO NOT hide the smell of your stash so that part is on you to figure out. However, so long as nobody is going to touch your junk, your stash should remain safe.

I’m giving Stash Pants, 5 out of 5 marijuana leaves because they live up to their name. They are pants (underpants) that allow for a hidden stash. The quality of the material is really good and, other than a tag on the outside that says “SP”, there is no indication that these shorts are any different than a regular store brand.

If you are in the market for such an item, I give my recommendation to Stash Pants.


BUD SAYS: I don’t always wear underwear, but when I do, I wear Stealth Pants.

Toke to ya soon,

State of Marijuana Flyer

June 4, 2014. Los Angeles, CA –

The State of Marijuana is the premier professional marijuana event in Los Angeles that brings you exclusive conversations and insight on the current and future state of the marijuana industry. This event will cover elements ranging from research, to ‘ganjaprenuers’ and business, to digital media and entertainment. It will be held in Hollywood, CA on Saturday, July 26th from 1pm to 9pm and will feature key figures such as Justin Hartfield, Co-Founder of and Dale Sky Jones, Executive Chancellor of Oaksterdam University.

This budding industry represents a multi-billion dollar opportunity across the black market, medical sector and marijuana for adult use. Today, there is legalization for medical marijuana in 21 states, 2 of which have legalized cannabis for recreational use. It is estimated that 4 more states – New York, Nevada, Oregon and California – will have a full legalization proposal, if not already passed, by 2016. By 2017, we will begin to see black market sales recede.

The marijuana market today is worth an estimated $50-$75 billion. With legalization allowing for open consumption, we will see a spike in market value to approximately $175 billion in online services, direct sales, ancillary merchandise and international sales.

This increase in market value could open the floodgates for new jobs and create multiple revenue streams for the nation. Although multiple states are currently in the process of legalizing medical marijuana, it will remain illegal on the federal level. And while traditional banks and credit unions have shut their doors to investors, this has created an opportune time for entrepreneurs and innovators to fill in the void.

With leaders from advocacy groups, businesses and academia, this event will host an in-depth conversation on the implications of the nation’s evolving perspectives on Cannabis and what the future will hold for the controversial herb. Be a part of this influential event to learn more about this sector and secure a foothold in the progression of the industry.

Confirmed speakers include:

Bianca Barnhill, Spark the Conversation
David Bearman, American Academy of Cannabinoid Medicine
Chris Conrad, Safe Access Now
Isaac Dietrich, Mass Roots
Addison DeMoura, SteepHill Halent
Don Duncan, Americans for Safe Access
Chris Fichtner, Cannibinomics
Joe Hunter, advisor to Fmr. New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson
Justin Hartfield, Weedmaps
Diane Goldstein, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition
