My Real Name is Chloe Sommers, and I'm A Marijuana Writer

Say goodbye to pseudonyms, and say hello to accountability. The ‘stoner’ stereotype of cannabis is over, and it’s our responsibility as seasoned journalists, researchers, and politicians to give the plant the seriousness it deserves. That means using real names and asking tough questions. Questions like: Who and how much money is behind the anti-marijuana lobbying groups? How much longer will the federal government, under the Controlled Substances Act, contradict state-level medical marijuana programs? Which cannabis industry leaders are taking it upon themselves to begin self-regulation? When will the federal government remove barriers to clinical studies? Why won’t legislators allow legal

Cannabis and Blue Dreams of Unity at the DNC Convention

It’s taken a few days to process everything I went through this year at the Democratic National Convention (DNC). As a Bernie supporter and medical cannabis patient, I have found that even when things don’t turn out the way you hope, when people stand together in truth and trust, we have the support needed to go on. I was appointed by Bernie Sanders’ campaign to be his Oregon representative on the Credentials Committee at the DNC in Philadelphia. With patriotic gusto, I learned my role in the convention proceedings and participated in ways that supported fairness and justice. As a

DEA Denies Cannabis Has Medical Value, Again

Washington D.C. – The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) released its decision to keep cannabis in its current Schedule 1 status last week. This decision will have substantial implications for the two million patients that currently have access to medical cannabis and cannabis products under state laws. Schedule I status means that the DEA sees no accepted medical use of cannabis. The Controlled Substances Act requires an 8-Factor Analysis from the HHS upon which the DEA makes it determination for all scheduling, or rescheduling, decisions. Previous efforts to reschedule cannabis have also been blocked by the DEA, who remain the most

What Is Hemp "Graphene"

The more we are able to research and explore the uses of cannabis, the more we realize it’s limitless possibilities.  In this article, posted by Dope Magazine, I explain one of the latest and most innovative uses for the cannabis plant yet, a graphene-like substance that is being created with hemp.  We must continue to push forward with cannabis law reform in our country to allow more research like this to be done, and to allow more industrial hemp fields to be grown in this country.  Findings like this are truly changing our perception about the capabilities of this plant,

However as, Adam Koh, who serves as Chief Cultivation Officer for Comprehensive Cannabis Consulting (3C), explains in the
