Attend The 2016 Students For Sensible Drug Policy Conference

One of my favorite events I ever attended was the Students for Sensible Drug Policy Conference in Denver in 2012. I made a lot of friends at that event that which I still talk to regularly to this day. Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) is one of my favorite organizations because they empower and educate young people so that they can make a positive difference on this planet. Virtually all major drug reform organizations have SSDP alumni on their staff, and if they don’t, they should. SSDP announced their 2016 conference, which is sure to be amazing. When it

Participate In The DFW NORML Street Cleanup

I love it when the marijuana community can step up and help the greater good. We spend so much time fighting for reform, as we should, but I dream of a day when the marijuana community can transition from a reform movement to a movement that can help society as a whole. The marijuana community is well organized, can get the word out, and can even raise a decent amount of funds in some cases. Those are all skills that can be applied to fix other problems while we also work to fix prohibition. The DFW NORML chapter is doing

Cannabis World Congress And Business Expo Is Coming To New York

If there are two things that I can say about the marijuana industry it’s that the industry is growing rapidly, and that the industry is complex. I talk to a lot of people from a lot of different backgrounds that are entering the marijuana industry. Almost all of them think that they know everything there is to know about the marijuana world. I always tell them that marijuana is different than any other thing they have ever done in any other industry. There are so many nuances that come with an underground industry that’s transitioning from out of the shadows. The marijuana industry is

Attend The Tribal Marijuana Workshop In Wisconsin

Below is an event that I came across if you are in the Wisconsin area: On October 28, 2014, the United States Department of Justice issued a “Policy Statement Regarding Marijuana Issues in Indian Country.” In this Statement, the DOJ stated that its enforcement priorities will apply “in the event that sovereign Indian Nations seek to legalize the cultivation or use of marijuana in Indian Country.” Indian tribal governments are now considering whether to legalize marijuana for medicinal, agricultural, or recreational use on par with state governments. Twenty-three states have legalized marijuana for medicinal use and another four have legalized
