TJ's Organic Garden Donates To Help Children Suffering From Epilepsy

Some of the biggest beneficiaries from medical marijuana are those that suffer from extreme epilepsy. It’s a condition that many children have to deal with, and unfortunately, few of them get safe access to non-psychoactive medical marijuana due to reefer madness. Non-psychoactive medical marijuana does not get kids high,despite some fear mongering comments by anti-marijuana advocates. There’s a medical marijuana company in Vancouver, Washington that is seeking to help out hundreds of kids that are suffering from extreme epilepsy. I am always happy to highlight people doing amazing things like this in the cannabis industry. Per Whaxy: TJ’s Organic Garden is

2016 Marijuana Legalization Effort Already Underway In Massachusetts

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again and again, 2016 is going to be the ultimate tipping point for marijuana reform in America. Right now there are four states that have legalized marijuana (and D.C. of course!). By the end of 2016, that number could easily triple or more. A state that is high on my radar is Massachusetts, along with most other states in the northeastern part of the country. Activists on the ground in Massachusetts are planning on pursuing both the legislative and initiative routes. Per The Salem News: Emboldened by victories in other states and

The March Toward Marijuana Legalization: 2016 And Beyond

By Phillip Smith State-level marijuana law reform won big in this month’s elections, with legalization initiatives triumphing convincingly in Alaska, Oregon, and Washington, DC. The Florida medical marijuana initiative lost, but only because it had a higher bar of 60% of the popular vote. It ended up with 57%, a clear sign of solid majority support. And don’t forget Guam — the US territory approved medical marijuana with 56% of the vote. Local marijuana reform initiatives also fared well. In Maine, Massachusetts, and Michigan, activists built on earlier successes to win more victories this year, while in New Mexico, voters

By Paul Armentano, NORML Deputy Director State Public Health Department officials have recommended over $7 million dollars in grant funding to pay for a series of state-sponsored clinical trials to assess the safety and efficacy of cannabis and cannabinoids.

Post-Dispatch Endorses Missouri Marijuana Legalization Initiative

By John Payne Earlier this month, the Saint Louis Post-Dispatch — the newspaper with the largest circulation in the state of Missouri — ran a staff editorial endorsing the idea of cannabis legalization and the initiative we turned in to the Secretary of State, in particular. This endorsement is yet another sign of how this issue has moved into the mainstream, even in a right-leaning state such as Missouri. It also signifies how seriously we are now taken by the state’s gatekeepers, which has not always been the case. In fact, until recently, few newspapers in the country were willing

Five Jobs The Marijuana Industry Creates

The economy is doing poorly and the people are beginning to really suffer from the effects. No matter if you go to school and get a degree or you go to school for ten years and become a doctor. Chances are, you’re having trouble finding jobs if you don’t have one or just constantly struggling to pay the bills. But with cannabis approval growing rapidly in the US and with more states legalizing the plant, it seems like benefits for medical users aren’t the only positive effect of a legal cannabis market. There are many jobs that the industry could
