Coffeeshop Fever

By John Knetemann I have coffeeshop fever. I have spent the past week in Amsterdam with 3 days left to go, and I have absolutely fallen in love with every coffeeshop I have stepped into. In case you didn’t know, a coffeeshop is a location in the Netherlands where you can purchase, consume, and enjoy cannabis. Basically, it is like a bar for bud, and just like bars, all coffeeshops have their own distinct atmosphere and attitude. Right now I am sitting in a coffeeshop called “Easy Times” that has [...]

Jays On Jays In Amsterdam

By John Knetemann I have recently made the pilgrimage that all cannabis enthusiasts must take once in their life, the voyage to Amsterdam. This past year, I have arrogantly claimed that Denver is the new weed capital of the world. Denver is my home-city, and I took huge pride stealing that title from Amsterdam. However, I was wrong. Even though Denver may have the most bodacious bud in the world, the title of weed capital of the world still goes to Amsterdam. No doubt. When in Amsterdam, you have spliffs [...]

Traveling With Marijuana Still Isn't Perfect

Thinking about taking a vacation from your state of Colorado or Washington? Possibly going back to see family or friends or maybe just getting away? If you’re thinking about taking your recreational marijuana with you, you may want to think again. Even though the laws allow for cannabis to be consumed legally by people in these states, things are still a bit iffy with the TSA and the rules regarding flying with weed. In Colorado, the Denver Airport has “amnesty boxes” in which people can deposit their weed before getting [...]

DEA Ignores Science, Obstructs Marijuana Research, New Report Finds

By Phillip Smith In a report released this week, the Drug Policy Alliance (DPA) and the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) reveal a decades-long pattern of the DEA ignoring scientific evidence and systematically obstructing medical research that could lead to the rescheduling of marijuana. The report comes just days after the House issued a stinging rebuke to the DEA by approving a bipartisan measure that bars the use of federal taxpayer dollars for the DEA to undermine medical marijuana in states where it is legal. The House also approved measures stripping the DEA’s [...]

Happy 4/20!

April 20th is certainly a date near and dear to the cannabis community, filled with celebrations of freedom as well as calls to action from coast to coast, across the globe even.  This April 20th also marks the first anniversary of the National Cannabis Coalition.  So many positive developments have occurred since our launch and we are so happy to have played a small part in this ongoing civil rights battle. Shortly after our launch, anti-marijuana Oregon Attorney General candidate Dwight Holton called out the National Cannabis Coalition by name in his final [...]

Guest Post | DUI vs. DWI: What’s the Difference?

By Carol Montrose It’s not terribly surprising that most people don’t know the difference between a DUI and a DWI charge since both are related to drinking and driving. Unless you’ve received both charges at some point, it’s not very likely that you’d bother to find out what separates one from the other. And yet, in most cases there is a very big distinction between what the two charges indicate, as well as the penalties they incur. Now, you might think that because you rarely drive after having a drink [...]

Help Bring Medical Marijuana to Iowa

Medical Marijuana Coming To Iowa? Carl Olsen is one of my heroes. When he speaks, people should listen because he is what it is all about: At the hearing last week, Tuesday, April 26, on my petition for declaratory ruling, your attorney, Scott Galenbeck, said that it was not the duty of the Iowa Board of Pharmacy to check the explanation in SSB 1016 for accuracy.   After the hearing, on Wednesday, April 27, I spoke with Joseph McEniry at the Legislative Service Agency who told me that it was [...]
