Bottom line, said prosecutors, medicinal marijuana from others states is still illegal in the Sunshine state. The ship, the Norwegian Epic, returned to port about 6 a.m. and was set to leave Terminal 10 later today, returning to sea for another cruise to a private Caribbean island. There was a heavy presence of Brevard County sheriff's deputies at the terminal.

Deputies searched through her bag and found THC-laced edibles, along with THC oil pipes and 1.5 grams of powdered cocaine, reports show. Scheppingen – described by the music industry trade magazine, Billboard, as a Holy Ship! regular – briefly took to Twitter to deny the charges and said she would return again to take Wednesday’s cruise to the Caribbean. But I’ll be back on @Holy_Ship 11.0 and the alleged charges are invalid. The two controlled substances I had were both marijuana (plus) I have a medical card,” she wrote. A false positive reading on a natural vitamin.” The Norwegian cruise ship Epic returned to port early Wednesday morning. Dozens were taken into custody Saturday morning for drug offenses while in the terminal waiting to board the ship, including a popular DJ. The cruise was know as the Holy Ship, a popular cruise with a youthful party crowd.

Dan Faggard, the felony intake division chief for the Seminole County branch of the Brevard-Seminole State Attorney’s office, said under the current law, a person would need to be a Florida resident to get a Florida medical marijuana card. You may also want to view these photo galleries: He also pointed out that for now, the cards issued by other states are not recognized in Florida. Faggard added that he has not heard of a lot of cases where people claimed having an out-of-state medical marijuana card as a legal defense. We have seen some individuals who have medical marijuana cards, but most don’t try to present the card. We see a lot of weird defense all the time, but that’s not one,” Faggard said. Saturday’s sweeping drug arrests also come at a time when the state continues to sort out its own medical marijuana laws. For now, that means Florida is not beholden to the marijuana laws of other states, making weed an illegal controlled substance inside the state. Prosecutors point out that each state has its own standards and requirements. The Norwegian cruise ship Epic returned to port early Wednesday morning.

THC pills, weed oil for vaping, marijuana-infused gummies and even pot-laced espresso beans were found among the suspects hoping to take the youth culture inspired party cruise. Ryan Canty came to cruise from Westminster, Calif., telling officers he didn't know about Florida's marijuana laws when he was found with approximately 100 grams of weed gummies. Although California authorities might not have done anything because of his medical marijuana card, Brevard County Sheriff's Office and Customs and Border Patrol agents with drug-sniffing dogs stopped them from leaving the Port. Jordan Parks, a cruise passenger from Washington state, was one of the hundreds waiting outside the cruise terminal Wednesday morning. He doesn't support bringing drugs on the cruise, even if it happens to be legal where they're from. Do you really wanna be the one making the bad choice looking at everybody getting on the ship while you get to sit here and not go?" he wondered of anyone who would try to bring drugs through the terminal. “People are expected to know what’s expected of them,” Faggard said. Develop the strength to take bold action, not the strength to endure suffering. ApprovaFlow: Using the Pipe and Filter Pattern to Build a Workflow Processor May 17, 2011. In the last post we discussed how Stateless makes creating a lean workflow engine possible, and we saw that we were able to achieve two of our overall goals for ApprovaFlow.
Here’s what we accomplished: • Model a workflow in a clear format that is readable by both developer and business user. Allow the state of a workflow to be peristed as an integer, string, etc. Create pre and post processing methods that can enforce enforce rules or carry out actions when completing a workflow task. Introduce new functionality while isolating the impact of the new changes. New components should not break old ones •.Communicate to the client with a standard set of objects. In other words, your solution domain will not change how the user interface will gather data from the user. aspx page to processes user input for any type of workflow. Provide ability to roll your own customizations to the front end or backend of your application. Our next goal will be Create pre and post processing methods that can enforce enforce rules or carry out actions when completing a workflow task.
We’ll use the Pipe and Filter Pattern to simplify the processing, and we’ll see that this approach not only streamlines how you handle variation in tasks, but also provides a clean method for extending our application abilities. The advantage of breaking down the activities of a process is that you can create a series of inter-changeable actions. There may be some cases where you want to re-order the order of operations at runtime and you can do so easily when the actions are individual components.
