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

Melissa Etheridge On The Smokebox With BReal

B-Real has a rare smoke session with music icon and activist, Melissa Etheridge. The two talk about the importance of smoking cannabis and her up coming ventures in the final half of 2015. This is Melissa’s first and only time smoking on camera and what better person to share her coming out party with than B-Real, “The Biggest & Baddest Chiefer of All Time”. I really like The Smokebox episodes, which usually feature rappers. I was very, very happy to see that the latest video has Melissa Etheridge on it. Melissa has been a very outspoken supporter of medical marijuana, basing

Tomorrow kicks off the National Marijuana Business Conference and Expo in Chicago, hosted by Marijuana Business Daily. I was originally going to attend the event but life got in the way.

It’s going to be very fun, and it will be a stellar networking opportunity. As far as I know tickets are still available, and they are also still accepting sponsors for the event.

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

That One Time Alex Trebek Got High For Multiple Days From Hash Brownies...

I am a very big fan of the show Jeopardy!, which of course is hosted by Alex Trebek. My great grandparents got me hooked on the show a long time ago when I was just a little kid. I think we have all seen the show at one time or another, and tried to show how smart we were by seeing if we could get the answers right. My great grandparents were very much products of their generation, and did not support sensible marijuana laws. So I was quite pleased when I saw that Alex Trebek admitted to using marijuana, and
