According to the claim, police officers damaged church property, injured one person and seized the cannabis sacrament.The president of the Association of Sacramental Ministries, of which Sacred Source is a member, said that seven pounds of cannabis with a value of $30,000 was taken by police. Five people were arrested and charged with not having a dispensary license.According to Alanna Reeves, “Cannabis has been used as a religious entheogen and healing sacrament for thousands of years – far longer than wine has been used.”Attorney Michael Cindrich, who is representing the church and the association in the claim against the city said there is a difference between an unlicensed dispensary which is not paying taxes and a group that is exercising its freedom of religion.“The Catholic Church utilizes wine as a sacrament and provides wine to children and we’re not seeing the City of San Diego making arrests and issuing citations because of the fact there are minors consuming alcohol on the premises,” Cindrich said.He said that the cannabis is being used by the church members for spiritual purposes. “They would like to be free from interference from state and local governments.”The City can decide if it will accept or reject the damage claim. If it’s turned down, the church and the association can move ahead with a lawsuit against the City.

We’ve been coming down here for 15 years so this is awesome,” said Holly Hatt from Poway.Normally, when the visitors arrive, the dogs are put back on a leash. Del Mar is a huge tourist destination during the summer. Among other things, the San Diego County Fair, The Del Mar Horse Races and the regular summer rush.After getting pressure from local dog owners, the city council voted 4 to 1 in favor of loosening up the leash laws. But there’s a catch. It’s only in effect until 8 a.m. when the lifeguards arrive for duty.“For me, this is the best beach for the dogs. There are other dog beaches, but this is the best,” said Barbara Yanni.The new leash law goes into effect on June 15th, when the summer rush begins. Updated: 10:48 PMlast_img read more

Plot on to protect Nusrats killers

first_imgBNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi. Prothom Alo File PhotoBNP on Saturday alleged that ‘evil efforts’ are on to protect the real killers of Feni madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi.”Though some killers in the Nusrat murder case have been arrested, people have strong doubt whether the real killers will get arrested. They have also doubt whether investigation into the case is lost in darkness like that of Tanu and Sagar-Runi cases,” said BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi.Speaking at a press conference at BNP’s Naya Paltan central office, he further said, “Media reports have manifested that evil efforts are on to save the killers of Nusrat as they belong to the ruling party.”Rizvi also alleged that local Chhatra League president Shahadat Hossain Shamim and his cohorts were involved in the Nusrat murder. “But police still couldn’t arrest Shamim and many others. How will police arrest them when they helped the offenders commit the crime?”He also said Sonagazi Model police station officer-in-charge Moazzem Hossain, who was recently withdrawn, harassed Nusrat as she went to him for lodging a complaint against madrasa principal Siraj ud Doula.”The OC harassed the girl in his room in the name of knowing the incident from her. There were no lawyer and female police member in his room while a video was taken when the girl was continuously crying,” he said.As the videos went viral, Rizvi alleged that the government withdrew the OC without taking any legal action against him.He also said the miscreants could not have killed Nusrat by setting fire had the OC taken proper action against the criminals as per her complaints.Nusrat, a student of Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa in Sonagazir upazila of Feni, was set ablaze on 6 April allegedly for refusing to withdraw a case filed against principal Siraj ud Doula of the madrasa for sexually harassing her last month.After fighting for her life for five days, the madrasa girl died at Dhaka Medical College Hospital on Wednesday night.last_img read more
