Former Canada Cop Claims He Invented A Marijuana Breathalyzer

Kal Malhi worked for law enforcement in British Columbia for ten years, four of which were spent in the drug enforcement division. Mr. Malhi is hopeful that the breathalyzer will be used by law enforcement to catch impaired drivers, and eventually also be used in the workplace to detect marijuana use.

Main Street Marijuana Store To Open In Vancouver, Washington Next Month

As an Oregon resident, I have been anxiously awaiting the opening of the first retail marijuana store in Vancouver, Washington. Vancouver is the closest city in Washington to where I live. I don’t currently have an Oregon medical marijuana card, so frequenting a medical marijuana dispensary in Oregon is not an option. I want to be able to go into an establishment and purchase CO2 oil for my vape pen, and as of right now, there’s no where for me to go. It sounds like the first retail marijuana store in Vancouver, Washington will be Main Street Marijuana, which expects

Rich People In London Get Warnings For Drugs, Poor People Get Arrested

The war on drugs is a war on poor people. Rich people consume drugs as much as poor people do proportianetly, however, rich people are far more likely to get a warning or slap on the wrist compared to poor people. Poor people are harrassed, arrested, fined, jailed, and given the ‘drug war scarlet letter’ when they are caught with drugs. For evidence of that, we can look to London, where a report was recently leaked which shows an enormous disparity between arrest rates for rich people versus poor people by the London MET. Per Vice: Unreleased figures obtained by

Sponsor Students For Sensible Drug Policy's 2014 Conference

I have always said that Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) is one of my favorite organizations. One of the best weekends of my life was in March 2012 when I attended an SSDP Conference in Denver. I made so many friends at the event, and learned more in that weekend than probably any other weekend in my 33 years on this planet. I got to see first hand how passionate and talented SSDP members were for drug policy reform. SSDP is holding another conference this Fall, and are combining the conference with a lobby day in Washington D.C.. If

Medical Marijuana Passes In New York

By Phillip Smith The New York legislature and Gov. Andrew Cuomo (R) reached a last-minute compromise on medical marijuana this week, and yesterday, the state Senate and Assembly approved the compromise bill, Program Bill 57. Gov. Cuomo says he will sign the bill into law, making New York the 23rd medical marijuana state. The bill is more limited than many patients and advocates would have preferred. It forbids smoking medical marijuana, although patients may vaporize or consume it in edibles. It also forbids using the raw plant. And it limits access to those with specified qualifying conditions, including cancer, multiple sclerosis,

Proposal Would Deter Trampling Of Medical Marijuana Patient Gun Rights

It was a huge week for marijuana reform. New York is poised to pass a medical marijuana bill. The bill is far from perfect, but is better than nothing. Philadelphia is going to decriminalize marijuana, which is fantastic. Hillary Clinton supports letting states legalize marijuana, kind of. The United States Senate is likely to vote on a bill that would defund medical marijuana raids in medical marijuana states. And that’s just a handful of the highlights that happened in the world of marijuana reform this week. Lost in all of this news was a great development in the United States

No less than thirty members of the United States Congress sent a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Urwell on Tuesday demanding an end to the federal monopoly on marijuana research.
