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

Free Jeff Mizanskey Campaign Gains Traction

By Aaron Malin, Show-Me Cannabis Director of Research An online crowd-funding campaign to release Jeff Mizanskey, a man currently serving life in prison without parole in Jefferson City for a nonviolent cannabis offense, has captured international attention and received contributions from across the globe. Jeff Mizanskey was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole in 1994 based on Missouri’s prior and persistent drug offender law. Mizanskey has asked Governor Nixon to grant him clemency, as he has exhausted all other options for appealing his sentence. His request for clemency is based on the nature of his previous

Dear Media - Marijuana Prohibition Is No Laughing Matter

Not that long ago Barack Obama was asked at a media event to respond to the fact that the number one petition on the White House’s ‘We the People – Your Voice In Our Government’ site was asking about marijuana legalization. Barack Obama smirked and chuckled at the question, as if it was a joke. Many media members that were in attendance laughed as well. In a recent episode of ‘Meet the Press’ the topic was marijuana legalization, and again, the media members on the show laughed repeatedly throughout the conversation. Even on my local sports radio channel, yesterday they

When Will Texas Legalize Marijuana?

One of the most common marijuana legalization related questions that I get is ‘when will Texas legalize marijuana?’ It’s a logical question, considering how many people get arrested for marijuana in Texas, and how harsh their marijuana laws are. In Texas, selling more than 7 grams of marijuana is a felony, punishable by up to 2 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Selling marijuana to a minor carries a penalty of up to 20 years in prison. I understand that people shouldn’t be selling marijuana to minors, but what if someone is an 18 year old senior in high

What Are The Best Investments In The Growing Cannabis Industry?

I have been involved in the cannabis industry for a long time, way before there were any legal medical marijuana or recreational marijuana states. This of course was when the entire industry was in the shadows, and the only ‘businesses’ that existed were blackmarket related. The only overhead and investments involved were sandwich baggies, grow supplies, and scales. My how things have changed. One of the most common questions I get these days is, ‘what is the best investement in the cannabis industry?’ It’s a logical question, considering how much money is involved in the cannabis industry right now, and
