114 armed forces veterans write to PM Narendra Modi, call for 'unity in diversity'

New Delhi: In the wake of recent attacks on Dalits and Muslim community in the country, a group of 114 armed forces veterans have penned a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi condemning the surge in mob violence and unprecedented attacks by relentless vigilantism of self-proclaimed 'Gau Rakshaks'. In the letter, the 114 veterans of all three forces said that they stand with the 'Not in My Name' campaign, that had mobilised thousands of citizens across the country.

"We are a group of veterans of the Indian Armed Forces who have spent our careers working for the security of our country. Collectively, our group holds no affiliation with any single political party, our only common commitment being to the constitution of India," the letter reads.
"We can no longer look away. We would be doing a disservice to our country if we do not stand up and speak for the liberal and secular values that our constitution espouses. Our diversity is our greatest strength. Dissent is not treason; in fact, it is the essence of democracy. We urge the powers that be at the Centre and in the states to take note of our concerns and urgently act to uphold our constitution, both in letter and in spirit," the retired 'faujis' appealed.

Earlier, PM Modi had also condemned the killing of people in the name of cow protection. "No person in this nation has the right to take the law in his or her own hands. Killing people in the name of 'gau bhakti' is not acceptable. This is not something Mahatma Gandhi would approve,"the PM had said while delivering a speech to mark the centenary of the Sabarmati ashram.

निठारी कांड में बड़ा फैसला, रेप व हत्या में कोली-पंधेर को फांसी की सजा

नई दिल्ली (जेएनएन)। देश-दुनिया में चर्चित निठारी कांड के 8वें मामले में सोमवार को गाजियाबाद की विशेष सीबीआइ अदालत ने दोषी करार दिए गए सुरेंद्र कोली और मोनिदर सिह पंधेर को फांसी की सजा सुनाई है। हालांकि, मोनिंदर सिंह को दूसरे मामले में यह सजा मिली है, जबकि कोली को आठवें मामले में सजा हुई।

सोमवार को सुनवाई के दौरान जज पवन कुमार तिवारी की अदालत में दोषियों को सजा को लेकर दोनों पक्षों में जमकर बहस हुई थी। बाद में जज ने इस मामले को 'रेयरेस्ट ऑफ द रेयर' मानते हुए दोनों को फांसी की सजा दी है। 


यह थी घटना
सीबीआइ के विशेष लोक अभियोजक जेपी शर्मा ने बताया कि नोएडा के निठारी गांव में रह रही पश्चिम बंगाल के बहरामपुर निवासी 20 वर्षीय युवती सेक्टर 37 में एक कोठी में घरेलू सहायिका थी।
वह रोजाना निठारी के डी-5 कोठी के सामने से गुजरती थी। पांच अक्टूबर 2006 को वह कोठी में काम करने गई थी। काम खत्म करने के बाद उसने दोपहर 1.30 बजे वहीं सीरियल कुमकुम देखा और फिर घर के लिए रवाना हुई, लेकिन घर नहीं पहुंची। पिता ने नोएडा के थाना सेक्टर-20 में गुमशुदगी की तहरीर दी थी।
पुलिस ने 30 दिसंबर 2006 को नोएडा के सेक्टर 20 थाने में हत्या का मामला दर्ज किया। दस जनवरी 2007 को केस सीबीआइ को ट्रांसफर किया गया।
इस मामले में सीबीआई ने 11 जनवरी 2007 को पंधेर व कोली के खिलाफ युवती के अपहरण, दुष्कर्म और हत्या का मुकदमा दर्ज किया। जांच के बाद 11 अप्रैल 2007 को चार्जशीट पेश की।
सवा दस साल के मुकदमे की कार्रवाई में विशेष लोक अभियोजक ने 46 गवाहों को पेश कर बयान दर्ज कराए। वहीं, बचाव पक्ष की तरफ से तीन गवाह पेश किए गए। खास बात यह है कि सुनवाई के दौरान सुरेंद्र कोली ने 56 दिन स्वयं बहस की। उसने अपनी पैरवी करने वाले कई अधिवक्ताओं को हटा दिया था।

The Weeds on weed: what a Dutch study tells us about legalization

The Weeds crew have finally discussed weed — specifically, marijuana use and policy. On the July 19 episode of the podcast, Vox’s Sarah Kliff, Matt Yglesias, and Ezra Klein talk about a paper — aptly titled “High Achievers” — out of the Netherlands that found marijuana use correlates to worse academic performance.

The 2015 Maastricht University study followed university students and tracked their academic achievement, with the intent to measure a temporary policy change in the city of Maastricht that restricted legal access to cannabis based on nationality.

For decades, marijuana use and sale had been legal in the Netherlands and could even be purchased at coffee shops and cannabis shops around the region, which led to a massive increase in drug tourism — people coming to the Netherlands with the intention to purchase or use pot. In time, the city of Maastricht saw its crime rate triple compared with that of cities further from the border. To curb the drug tourism problem (mostly coming from, as the study authors write, “bad tourists” from France and Luxembourg), cannabis shop owners in 2011 issued a “partial prohibition” policy change, which only allowed people from specific nationalities to buy cannabis on their premises. Interested customers had to present a valid Dutch, German, or Belgian ID to be granted entry to a cannabis shop.

This policy created a unique situation, the study authors write, where students at the university could be separated into groups — those that could legally obtain marijuana and those that could not — and their academic performance could be measured. They concluded that students who could no longer legally buy cannabis increased their grades substantially — particularly in classes that required more math or numerical knowledge.

In this episode, the Weeds team discusses these findings as well as how alcohol policies compare to marijuana policies, and the effect the war on drugs has had on legalization efforts in the US.

Sarah, Matt, and Ezra also discuss the state of the rapidly changing health care debate in the Senate, and the dynamics that are creating such a turbulent situation: moderate Republicans balking at the prospect of the uninsured population shooting up; far-right senators refusing to accept anything less than a full repeal of Obamacare as nearly enough; and a lack of leadership from Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump.

Sarah also unpacks the interesting case of “Obamacare in Alaska,” where insurers received funding from the state to pay for high-cost patients, which, in turn, lowered premiums for everyone — though it cost the state around $50 million.

The feds are looking into Colorado’s weed black market

Officials from the DEA and the White House have quietly been holding meetings in Colorado to discuss the marijuana black market, heightening concerns that federal authorities could be planning a crackdown in states with legal weed.

A meeting Wednesday in Colorado Springs was supposed to be secret, but local news station KKTV staked it out and filmed attendees coming and going. The participants reportedly included two DEA officials and representatives from the Justice Department, the Office of National Drug Control Policy, and the office of Vice President Mike Pence. The feds met with the mayor of Colorado Springs, the town’s chief of police, a local doctor, and a school district official.

FREE TO BOOZE AND SMOKE POT, BUT

his way to being released from prison, and once he's a free man he'll also be free to imbibe and smoke weed ... as long as he's responsible about it.
The conditions of Juice's parole allow him to "consume alcoholic beverages but not to excess." O.J. will occasionally be tested for it, but if his BAC is under .08 ... he's in the clear.
Simpson's not allowed to use any controlled substances without a prescription from a doctor, and the same goes for marijuana. BUT, if he's prescribed medicinal marijuana ... he's got a green light to the ganja.
Here's the wild card ... he must obey all laws. One member of the parole board made it clear ... even a small lapse could land him back in prison.
The rest of his conditions are pretty standard -- don't associate with convicted felons, no weapons and make regular check-ins with his parole officer.
Not bad for a guy who was looking at 24 more years of hard time just hours ago.

What Jeff Sessions is getting wrong about legal weed

Marijuana legalization at the state level has reduced prison populations and created tens of thousands of real jobs.
Even opioid abuse is lower in places where marijuana is legal.
Jeff Sessions efforts to crackdown on legal weed could destroy years of progress.Nearly a half a century of America's "War on Drugs" has produced the largest prison population in the world, devastated minority communities and contributed to an opioid epidemic that claims more than 20,000 lives a year.

Two decades of progressive marijuana legalization at the state level has helped put a dent in the prison population, created tens of thousands of jobs and opioid abuse is lower in places where marijuana is legal.

Yet, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions wants to turn back the clock.

In late February, Mr. Sessions announced the formation of a crime reduction task force that will review among other things existing federal policy on marijuana and present its findings in late July. Sessions wants the Task Force to review current policy and how the DOJ is tackling a number of areas that he believes contribute to crime, including illegal immigration and drugs.

The attorney general followed that with a letter to Congress in May asking the legislature to do away with a budget amendment bill known as the Rohrabacher-Farr Amendment that has protected medical marijuana states from Federal prosections since 2014.

"State legal cannabis is now a $6 billion industry that employs 150,000 people and is on track to create more jobs than the manufacturing sector by 2020."
Mr. Sessions' stance is not just troubling, it is dangerous. It runs contrary to good policy and the facts.

Between 1970 and 2008, the U.S. incarceration rate rose fivefold. Relative to our population, we lock up seven times as many people as France, 11 times as many as the Netherlands and 15 times as many as Japan. Marijuana possession has accounted for a significant portion of those arrests.

According to the American Civil Liberties Union, between 2001 and 2010 there were 8.2 million marijuana related arrests in the county, nearly 90 percent of them were for possession. African Americans were nearly four times as likely to be arrested for possession than whites.

Since California became the first state to legalize medical marijuana two decades ago, 28 others and the District of Columbia have followed suit. Eight states have also legalized adult use. We now have a track record of legal, regulated marijuana in more than half of the country, and clear evidence that it is a better approach than a blanket prohibition and harsh prison sentences for those who use it or participate in its commerce.

A 2014 study from the University of Texas, Dallas using FBI's crime data showed no rise in crime rates resulting from medical marijuana legalization, and even some evidence of decreasing rates of homicide and assault.

According to the Drug Policy Alliance, Denver saw a 2.2 percent drop in violent crime rates in the year after the first legal recreational cannabis sales in Colorado, and overall property crime dropped by 8.9 percent in the same period while Washington, which legalized recreational use in 2012, saw violent crime rates drop by 10 percent from 2011 to 2014.

The history of the War on Drugs is also a history of the economic and social disparities in our country. Black and brown men are disproportionally incarcerated under our current drug laws, and because mass incarceration breaks up families and severely limits ex-convicts' employment and business opportunities, the War on Drugs has dramatically increased the poverty rate in minority communities.

It is a vicious cycle of prison and poverty that continues to trap millions of Americans. By one estimate, if California emptied its prisons today and sent every incarcerated person to a university it would save the state almost $7 billion a year.

It is not surprising then that prison guard unions and the private prison industry are two of the strongest opponents of marijuana legalization, along with pharmaceutical companies that see cannabis as a threat to their monopoly on prescription painkillers and other high priced treatments.

To be sure, the War on Drugs is a much bigger and more complex issue than marijuana legalization alone, but it is a good place to start. State legal cannabis is now a $6 billion industry that employs 150,000 people and is on track to create more jobs than the manufacturing sector by 2020.

It has generated hundreds of millions of dollars in tax revenue; California alone is forecasting $1 billion annually. Two decades of state legal marijuana also has shaped public opinion, with record numbers of Americans now supporting legalization. A recent poll from Quinnipiac University shows 94 percent of U.S. voters support medical marijuana programs, and 60 percent favor full legalization.

In today's divided politics, few issues command such unanimous support. Medical marijuana is legal both in red and blue states. The first ever Congressional Cannabis Caucus, announced earlier this year, is made up of two Democrats and two Republicans. And in the cannabis industry social justice and business interests are often aligned, with advocates and entrepreneurs standing shoulder to shoulder against reactionary policies such as the ones proposed by Mr. Sessions.

If he has his way on marijuana, Mr. Sessions threatens to turn back the clock on two decades of painstakingly gained progress, bringing us back to the days of overflowing prisons, disenfranchised communities and a $50 billion black market for cannabis run by drug cartels. We must not allow that to happen.

Government Finds Ghost Centres In Skill India Mission, Crackdown Begins

Sunil Kumar last year put his life savings to start a skills training centre in Alwar, Rajasthan. The centre was inspected and approved in January. He also received an advance for the first batch of trainees. Mr Kumar was glad he had let himself be inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's vision to train the youth and get them jobs. A few months down the line, he isn't so sure any more. The owner of the training centre says the government stopped setting targets for his centre, and the money. "Now, I have no idea where this project is headed," Mr Kumar told NDTV, worried that at this rate, "we will all be unemployed".

His only consolation; he isn't the only one. There are hundreds of such centres across India, which meet the criteria set by the government under the Prime Minister's Skill Development Scheme but aren't getting the targets, or the money. Most of these are in Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Haryana.

Centres such as the one run by Mr Kumar are the collateral casualties in the government's attempt to smoke out ghost training centres that got certificates from the National Skill Development Corporation to prove their existence. But remain invisible on the ground.

In an investigation done last week, NDTV was able locate such ghost centres.

One such centre is located 60 kilometres from the national capital in Greater Noida. On its website, the National Skill Development Corporation says the SPEJ center in Greater Noida has a target to train 480 students in beauty and hairdressing.

It doesn't. What was meant to be a training centre in official records is a hostel for boys. The security guard confirmed this is all it was. "This is a boys' hostel. No courses are taught here," he said.


In Jaswantnagar town in Etawah district of Uttar Pradesh, the government's website lists a footwear design institute. When NDTV reached the address, it turned out to be wedding hall.

Officials at the skills development ministry said they were trying to weed out such centres from its list.

An internal audit by the ministry had indicated that nearly 7 per cent of all training centres funded by the government did not exist. Of those that did exist, one in five centres, or 21 per cent, did not have the basic equipment needed to impart skills training. An equal proportion did not have a placement cell to help the young pass-outs get a job.

Officials say it was the Quality Council of India that appeared to have slipped up; the body responsible for the inspections and accreditation of all skill India training centres across the country.

STUBBORN WEED’ | Trillanes expects Duterte to stay on

President Rodrigo Duterte is to mark his first anniversary in office next week. The folk in Malacañang, however, said it felt much longer than that, with everything that’s happened since last year. Presidential Spokesman Ernesto Abella said: “It feels like three years already, right? Considering the amount of work we’ve done, considering the challenges and all the matters that have been addressed.”

The crisis in Marawi is the latest and seemingly most difficult to grapple with.

Five weeks in, the military still has to clear the city of the remnants of Islamist extremists,
and the sudden disappearing act in the previous week by President Duterte did not help clear the fog.


The Palace insisted that Duterte just needed to rest.

Spokesman Abella even seemed to take a dig at Duterte’s predecessor, Benigno Aquino III, by alluding to “other persons who take up the Playstation, whatever.”

For one of the president’s more vocal critics, Senator Antonio Trillanes, the Duterte track record is strewn with failure to live up to his promises and pledges, including solving Metro Manila’s traffic problems and winning the peace in the South: “This administration: Epic fail. On all fronts.”

And, amid the recent questions over Duterte’s health, Trillanes likened the president to the stereotypical Filipino cultural concept of the tenacious shoddy weed.

“May kasabihan, eh, ung masamang damo hindi agad namamatay (There is a saying, stubborn weeds don’t die easy),” Trillanes quipped. Whatever else may be said, however, it’s certain that Duterte remains as popular as ever.

heres why nevada is coming up short on weed only 10 days after legitimization

Nevada's recently legitimized recreational weed program created a bewildering $3 million in deals income and an expected $1 million in impose income in only four days, the Reno Gazette Journal detailed.

In light of current circumstances, Nevada — which commenced recreational deals on July 1 — could see $30 million in deals before the finish of 2017, Fortune clarified. In any case, all that cash may go up in smoke if controllers can't make sense of how to disseminate the item.

"There's a lot of cannabis in the state," Cyrus Farudi, leader of Franklin BioScience, a holding organization that claims both Lucky Edibles and Altus Labs, said in a meeting. As Farudi clarified, a fight in court between the Department of Taxation and alcohol merchants has prompted a total end of any recreational cannabis conveyances to the 47 authorized retail pot stores in the state.

In November, voters affirmed Question 2, authorizing the offer of recreational weed. In spite of the fact that the activity was intended to commence on Jan. 1, 2018, the state pushed to kick it off prior to meet Gov. Brian Sandoval's proposed spending demand, as indicated by the Las Vegas Review Journal.

"On the off chance that we don't have a transitory program, we won't have the income that is incorporated into the representative's financial plan," charge division chief Deonne Contine told the Review Journal.

In any case, the activity required an arrangement of independent authorized retail locations and merchants, so nobody organization could develop, convey and offer the item. Rather, as indicated by the law endorsed by voters, just liquor wholesalers can convey recreational cannabis for the initial year and a half. Nevada is the main state with legitimized recreational weed with this game plan, Business Insider revealed.

As the law states:

For year and a half after the Department [of Taxation] starts to get applications for weed foundations, the Department should issue licenses for cannabis merchants in accordance with this part just to people holding a discount merchant permit in accordance with section 369 of [Nevada Revised Statutes], unless the Department confirms that an inadequate number of weed wholesalers will come about because of this impediment.

Yet, it's that last sentence, "unless the Department establishes that an inadequate number of maryjane merchants will come about because of this impediment," that is causing all the inconvenience.

Following the vote in November, Department of Taxation authorities inquired as to whether they were keen on circulating maryjane. Around 15 of the 67 wholesalers reacted yes, they were intrigued, Nevada Independent revealed. In any case, on March 16, the division declared it had an inadequate number of merchants so it would open circulation to pot foundations also.

Alcohol merchants rapidly took issue and documented suit to prevent some other gatherings from disseminating. On June 20, Carson City Judge James Wilson, Jr. controlled in favor of the merchants and allowed a preparatory directive stopping the Department of Taxation from issuing any weed transportation grants to anybody other than authorized alcohol wholesalers.

All things considered, both the administration and shops pushed forward with the July 1 opening date.

"Individuals knew this was going on so individuals supplied up," Farudi stated, taking note of that there was a little keep running on their item before the July 1 begin date.

Be that as it may, even with stockpiling item, the offers of recreational pot far surpassed everybody's desires. Also, now, a few shops will come up short on item in a matter of days. To help alleviate the potential expense income misfortune, the Department of Taxation issued a crisis assertion, which is likewise supported by Sandoval, that could enable authorities to consider a bigger pool of candidates for appropriation licenses.

"Without the retail offer of maryjane, the state won't understand the income on which the state spending plan depends," the archive states.

Moreover, office representative Stephanie Klapstein told the Gazette Journal, if offers of cannabis stop, organizations will be compelled to screen or even lay off staff.

"Unless the issue with merchant permitting is settled rapidly, the powerlessness to convey item to retail locations will bring about a large number of these individuals losing their occupations and will convey this early market to a granulating stop. An end in this market will prompt a gap in the state's school spending plan," she said.

Be that as it may, as per Kevin Benson, the legal counselor speaking to the alcohol wholesalers, there is no "genuine crisis for the office to settle."

"The Department of Taxation made this circumstance by superfluously surging the procedure to begin on July 1, which brought about invalid controls for merchants," Benson said by means of email. "In the event that the new "crisis" directions produce results, and alcohol wholesalers are not authorized in time, the office will enable the weed business to vertically incorporate."

Also, that vertical coordination conflicts with the goal of the activity that voters affirmed.

Be that as it may, even with recreational conveyance open to question, there's as yet one proviso to getting your weed. As Farudi clarified, the appropriation stop doesn't influence or apply to the medicinal cannabis industry, as they can at present circulate to themselves. Additionally, Nevada has correspondence, which means you can bring a therapeutic card from any state and still buy your restorative pot in any of the shops around the state.

Yet, Farudi doesn't appear to be excessively worried about the impermanent end, saying, "I believe it's something Nevada will make sense of. I don't believe it will be a noteworthy issue. Everyone is adjusted on needing to complete this."

Erin Gore markets cannabis-implanted desserts for ladies, under the name Garden Society.

She wedded into a group of grape cultivators, and this is her interpretation of why those in Sonoma County might be uneasy:

"Going down (U.S. Parkway) 101 are ... every one of the vineyards going to get tore out and it's just going to be pot? How awful is it going to smell? A major thing is, everybody will get ransacked. Many individuals are stressed over maryjane stoned driving."

Truth be told, Sonoma is as of now attempting to suit its 469 wineries. Despite the fact that wine tourism is the soul of the economy, inhabitants whine about the interminable uncommon occasions at wineries, the congested streets and drunk drivers. Adding cannabis to the blend just elevates those worries.

"We have a few difficulties, some combined effects from wineries and tasting rooms," says First District County Supervisor Susan Gorin. "What's more, now here comes cannabis."

Oregon, where recreational pot has been lawful for a long time, has had some cross-fertilization amongst wine and cannabis, however the huge analysis is here on the north bank of California.

Sonoma County expects such a large number of utilizations for cannabis arrive utilize grants that it has employed 14 extra controllers. There are rules for groundwater administration, obligatory utilization of sustainable power source, misfortunes from parkways and schools, and prerequisites for expound security designs.

"Without a sad remnant of an uncertainty, cannabis will be the most troublesome yield to develop in Sonoma County," says Fifth District County Supervisor Lynda Hopkins.

The vineyards possess all the great land, and nobody knows whether they'll need to venture into cannabis development, as a modest bunch have done in Oregon.

Tom Rodrigues, who possesses Maple Creek Winery in the slopes of neighboring Mendocino County, is bullish on the controlled business cannabis showcase. Rodrigues sits on two admonitory sheets — one for cannabis, one for wine. He says he develops pot for individual utilize, however has no plans to slap the Maple Creek mark on the green, resinous buds.

"My first enthusiasm is the wine," he says. "On the off chance that the laws were distinctive I could develop (cannabis) since I have 164 sections of land here. However, I would need to move my tasting room off the property, in light of the fact that the law is that you can't be offering liquor and developing cannabis on a similar property."

As far as the market, Rodrigues thinks fine wine consumers are a characteristic customer base for Emerald Triangle cannabis.

"I address individuals consistently here in the tasting room and individuals need to think about it. It's never again secretive. 'I'm from Iowa, I've heard Mendocino County has extraordinary cannabis. Where would i be able to get a few?' " Rodrigues says.

They'll need to hold up until Jan. 1. That is when retail recreational maryjane opens for business in California.

At a wine and weed supper held at a Northern California winery, the offerings on an appetizers table incorporate cannabis lemonade.

A review was accessible at the current Cannabis Business Summit and Expo down the expressway in Oakland. Sellers were there peddling the most recent in cannabis cultivate security, protection, composts, develop lights, fertilized soils and consumables.

Humberto Torres is the COO of GFarma Labs, an organization that implants chocolates and lemonades, and offers cannabis bud.
