Medical Marijuana Bill Passes Georgia House

The Georgia House of Representatives passed a medical marijuana bill yesterday. This is a huge deal. Is the bill perfect? No. Will Georgia’s medical marijuana program be the best in the nation if the senate passes the bill too? Another no. However, it’s far superior than no program at all, and it will at least help some suffering patients if it eventually becomes law, and helping some patients is better than helping no patients, especially in the South where marijuana reform is much harder to pass than in other parts [...]

How To Recognize Quality Marijuana Seeds

By Robert Bergman Quality marijuana seeds Although it might be hard to believe, you can actually judge the quality of marijuana seeds before it even sprouts. Being able to distinguish between a dud and a potential winner can make growing marijuana that much easier. It’s also important to be able to judge seed quality because you can end up with an entire batch of unusable seeds. There are many potential reasons for this, but, in large part, it stems from marijuana’s illegality and the difficulty getting the seeds shipped to [...]

Poll: Overwhelming Majority Support Medical Marijuana In Pennsylvania

I have always said that if there are patients suffering in a state, and medical marijuana will help those patients alleviate their suffering, than that state’s legislature should legalize medical marijuana. This is especially true if voters in that state support such a move. One would think that a politician would take ownership of the idea and push it through the state legislature, and in the process look like a genius. I’m hoping that will be the case in Pennsylvania. A recent Mercyhurst Center of Applied Politics poll found that [...]

Vermont Legislature Seeks To Expand Medical Marijuana Program

Vermont’s medical marijuana program has come a long way since the law was first approved by the Legislature back in 2004. In 2011, MPP worked with Vermont legislators and our allies to secure approval for four state-regulated medical marijuana dispensaries. As a result of that law, which was signed by Governor Peter Shumlin, the fourth dispensary began serving patients in southern Vermont last Tuesday. This is great progress, but we can’t stop here. The addition of four dispensaries has dramatically improved access for patients, and over 1,000 patients have now registered for [...]

Snoop Dogg And BReal Hot Box A Car And Talk About Marijuana And Music

I have hot boxed a car listening to Cypress Hill and/or Snoop Dogg more times than I can count. When I first got my license in the mid-1990′s, one of the first things I did was make a CD with Cypress Hill and Snoop Dogg songs, drove to the outskirts of town, and hot boxed my car with my closest friends. Every road trip I have ever taken with Jay Smoker included a savage hot box session and some Snoop Dogg and BReal. Below is a video from BReal.TV in which [...]
