True OG Marijuana Strain Review And Pictures

True OG Cannabis Strain Review And Pics The True OG marijuana strain is an indica strain. The True OG marijuana strain originated in Southern California, and is very popular down there. I don’t see it very often up here in Oregon. The True OG marijuana strain is a variation of the original OG strain, or ‘ocean grown.’ Like most indica strains, the body high from True OG is fantastic, and is great for pain relief and for help sleeping. The head high is mellow, allowing you to get some tasks done around the house, but I wouldn’t recommend starting any complex

Which State Smokes The Most Marijuana?

There’s a new ‘National Survey on Drug Use and Health’ out, which shows how many citizens in each state reported smoking marijuana monthly. Which state has the highest marijuana consumption per capita? It’s not the state you would think. I would have guessed a West Coast state or Colorado. However, it turns out that Rhode Island has the highest marijuana use per capita in the United States. Per the Washington Post: State-level statistics from the latest National Survey on Drug Use and Health (rather unfortunately acronymed NSDUH) show that just over 1 in 8 Rhode Island residents over age 12 smoke marijuana monthly.

Oregon Marijuana Tax Revenue Estimate Higher Than First Forecast

If Oregon voters decide to legalize, regulate and tax marijuana, the state estimates that it will take in up to $40 million a year, much more than originally estimated. The statement, finalized on Monday, was prepared by the Oregon state financial estimate committee, which includes the Oregon’s Secretary of State, the State Treasurer, the Department of Administrative Services director and the Department of Revenue director. At the high end, the new estimate is greater than the amount forecast by ECONorthwest and by Harvard economist Jeffrey Miron. However, economists agree that new markets are hard to predict. The state’s final estimate

Washington Attorney General To Intervene In Marijuana Lawsuits

Unless you have been living under a rock, than you know that Washington State legalized marijuana during the 2012 Election. Sales started on July 7, 2014 in some areas, while other areas either didn’t have a retail license issued yet, or areas had a ban in place. Two areas that banned marijuana businesses, Wenatchee and Fife, have become the subject of multiple lawsuits filed by businesses that wish to overturn the bans. The lawsuits involve some interesting legal arguments. The municapalities that passed the bans did so based upon faulty logic, claiming that federal law pre-empted state law. I-502, which

Two Michigan Cities Vote To Decriminalize Marijuana

It was a good night in Michigan last night for two cities, who voted to decriminalize marijuana. Last year Ferndale, Jackson, and Lansing voted to decriminalize marijuana. You can now add to that list Hazel Park and Oak Park. Per WXYZ: Unofficial results posted by the Oakland County Elections Division show the measures passing Tuesday in Hazel Park and Oak Park. The two were among at least 11 cities across Michigan and one county targeted by pro-marijuana activists seeking ballot initiatives to legalize or decriminalize small amounts of marijuana for personal use. I like it when local municipalities reform marijuana

Willie Nelson Talks To AARP About Marijuana

Willie Nelson is an American legend. Willie Nelson has fans from all walks of life, but especially among senior citizens. My grandma doesn’t consume marijuana, but is pro-marijuana reform mainly because Willie Nelson supports it. I know that she’s not alone. That’s why it’s huge that Willie Nelson recently provided the following quote to the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP): I’ll probably take a couple of hits before or after the show tonight. It relaxes me, and the medicinal form of pot can cure everything from stress to cancer. It’s a shame that it was thrown in with the

Colorado Issues New Marijuana Edible Rules

Marijuana edibles are nothing new. They have been around for decades, most commonly in the form of brownies and cookies. Marijuana edibles, if prepared properly, can be much stronger than marijuana in flower form. Whereas marijuana consumed in smoke or vapor form goes into your nervous system via the lungs, eaten marijuana goes into your blood stream via the digestive process. That’s why the high from eating marijuana can last so long, and can be felt throughout your entire body. Veteran marijuana consumers know this, and either take it easy on edibles, or if they are like me, prepare ahead

When Will California Legalize Marijuana?

For a long time I thought that California would be the first state to legalize recreational marijuana. After all, California was the first state to legalize medical marijuana in 1996. But legalizing recreational marijuana has been tough for California. California was the first state to vote on legalizing recreational marijuana when Proposition 19 qualified for the 2010 Election. That was the same year that Jay Smoker and I created The Weed Blog. It was a very exciting year for reform, even if the initiative didn’t pass. There were many reasons that the initative didn’t pass. A big contributing factor was

Debunking The White House's Response To The New York Times

by Mitch Earleywine The New York Times has joined the majority of US citizens in the call for a more rational marijuana policy. The White House responded with an attempt to explain why a taxed and regulated market is no “silver bullet solution.” Alluding to The Lone Ranger probably wasn’t a great idea, but I think they mean that this isn’t a panacea for every problem related to cannabis. Of course, all our other legislation is perfect, so we shouldn’t change this policy until we have a solution with all advantages and no disadvantages. Our government says that this use of law
