Many Marijuana Companies Don't Understand The Average Marijuana Consumer

There’s something that I have told people in the marijuana industry over and over and over and it almost always falls on deaf ears. The marijuana consumer is not like consumers in other industries. Whereas many other industries have cookie cutter consumers that have buying habits and preferences that can easily be predicted, the average marijuana consumer is like me – poor, doesn’t like corporations, and comes from a counter culture background. We don’t consume marijuana because it’s cool, we consume marijuana because we like to get high, and we don’t like posers. Sure, there are marijuana consumers from all

D.C. Council Votes To Relieve People With Prior Marijuana Possession Arrest

The ‘marijuana scarlet letter’ is a terrible thing. Get busted for marijuana even one time, and it can ruin your ability to get college financial aid, to get a job, to get approved for a home, etc. It’s a detail that people like Kevin Sabet try to gloss over. Marijuana does not ruin someone’s life, but getting busted for marijuana absolutely can ruin your life. Fortunately for residents of Washington D.C. that were busted for personal marijuana possession, the process to seal those convictions was strengthened yesterday. Below is a press release from the Drug Policy Alliance talking about this

How Much Money Does Kevin Sabet Get To Spread Marijuana Propaganda?

Kevin Sabet would probably like you to believe that he fights against marijuana reform out of the kindness of his heart. Kevin Sabet would probably like you to believe that he is just trying to protect children from the devil’s lettuce. Kevin Sabet would probably like you to believe that he just wants to see an efficient, sober America. However, those things are false. Kevin Sabet fights marijuana reform because he gets paid to do so. In fact, he gets paid quite handsomely to do so.. Russ Belville recently did a crowd funding campaign which allowed him to do some

Legal Recreational Marijuana Prices Starting To Drop In Washington, Finally

Legal recreational marijuana sales started in Washington State about three months ago. Anyone who has bought marijuana at a recreational marijuana store has probably suffered from sticker shock. As recently as last week, prices for one gram of legal marijuana were as high as $38, and the amount of strains available were limited. That seems to be changing now, as more growers are harvesting and many strains have lowered to $20 per gram. One store, Main Street Marijuana in Vancouver, is at capacity for product. Per The Columbian: Ramsey Hamide grinned as he leaned back in his chair, looking out

Study: Marijuana Lowers Mortality Rate Among Patients With Traumatic Brain Injuries

I know people that have had traumatic brain injuries from sports, car crashes, and other accidents. My cousin recently had to have brain surgery as a result of a traumatic brain injury that he experienced while playing football. It was a very scary time, but I’m happy to say, he has made a full recovery. A new study was released which found that marijuana use lowers the mortality rate among patients with traumatic brain injuries. Per Science World Report: The study, led by researchers at Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute, surveyed emergency patients for levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), an active ingredient present

What Is The Greatest 'Stoner' Movie Of All Time?

What Are The Top Stoner Movies Of All Time? There are few things that are as fun to me as consuming some marijuana and watching a good stoner movie. I don’t know if there is an official definition for what a stoner movie is, but you definitely know it when you see it. I don’t personally consider educational marijuana documentaries to be stoner movies, but a lot of my friends do, and I can live with that. Other people I know love movies that aren’t necessary entirely about marijuana, but are really fun to watch after consuming marijuana. I’m cool

Majority Of Britons Want To Legalize Marijuana

Marijuana reform is a very popular public issue right now across the world, and Britain is no exception. A survey was released recently which found that a majority of Britons want to legalize marijuana. While the survey didn’t go into great detail, it did find the following, per The Guardian: The vast majority of those advocating a change to the legal status of drugs do not advocate a blanket treatment of all drugs; only 3% believe that all of them should be either legalised or decriminalised. Indeed, for many people the issue appears to be primarily focused on the legality
