Michigan State Capitol building vandalized with anti-ICE graffiti

Michigan State Capitol building vandalized with anti-ICE graffiti On July 4, an anti-ICE message was spray painted on the Michigan State Capitol building in Lansing, according to our Detroit affiliate WXYZ. The graffiti simply said "Stop ICE." Police said it was painted in the building Thursday night and they do not have any suspects yet, WXYZ reports. In the meantime, a tarp is covering the message and crews are determining the best way to remove the paint from the building. This is the third time in two weeks that graffiti targeting Immigration and Customs Enforcement has shown up in Lansing. The Michigan GOP headquarters were vandalized twice at the end of June.

Capitol Police Chief Matthew Romei said he’s fairly certain it was not part of the state ’s horticultural landscaping plan. "The beds are maintained -- as you can see -- very well by Buildings and General Services. They really know how to run a flower bed . It's an impressive display every year but I don't

MONTPELIER, Vt. — Almost three dozen cannabis plants have been found growing in the flower beds in front of the Vermont Statehouse.

Police say a visitor alerted them to the 34 plants this week among the cultivated flowers that line the walkway in front of the building in Montpelier.

Hawaii has decriminalized marijuana

Hawaii has decriminalized marijuana Hawaii is now the 26th to legalize or decriminalize pot. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); Hawaii on Tuesday decriminalized marijuana, making it the 26th state to decriminalize or legalize the drug. The new law removes the possibility of jail time as a penalty for up to three grams of marijuana, but maintains a $130 fine. Hawaii’s Democrat-controlled legislature approved the bill and sent it to Democratic Gov. David Ige in May.

Capitol police found a grouping of about 30 plants mixed in with flowers in a garden area outside the statehouse , according to WMTW-TV. “It’s legal to cultivate but there are limits on where you can do it, and the statehouse flower beds certainly aren’t one of those permissible sites,” Romei told WMTW.

Capitol Police Chief Matthew Romei says he doesn't know whether the immature plants were marijuana or hemp.

He says officials don't intend to test the plants to see if they are marijuana or hemp because there is no criminal case.

In Vermont, possession of small amounts of marijuana for recreational use is legal. Farmers can plant hemp as a cash crop.

Romei says officials have made similar discoveries in the Statehouse flower gardens in previous years.
