Support 'Oregon. The State Of Cannabis' By Studio McDermott, LLC

With marijuana legalization now a reality in Oregon, a production studio called Studio McDermott LLC is trying to publish a documentary about marijuana in Oregon. Oregon is a very special place when it comes to marijuana, which I think is why marijuana legends like Jack Herer lived here for so long. In my opinion, I think that Oregon has the best marijuana and marijuana products in the country, and now that legalization is here, Oregon will be ‘discovered’ by marijuana enthusiasts around the world sooner than later.   Studio McDermott LLC has a crowdfunding effort underway, which can be found

That One Time When Kevin Sabet Got OWNED By A Senator During A Hearing

This last week a Congressional drug caucus was held where testimony was provided by Kevin Sabet. As usual, Kevin was ripe with reefer madness. Usually Kevin speaks to crowds that are completely sympathetic to his views, and rarely question anything he says because he has them so snowballed (after all, they are paying thousands of dollars to have him tell them half truths about marijuana policy and science!). But this speaking engagement was different. United States Senator Cory Booker was in attendance, and he didn’t take kindly to Kevin Sabet’s reefer madness tactics. If you are like me, I’m sure

Santa Ana Medical Marijuana Dispensary Raid Causes Major Controversy

Late last week a video was released that showed a medical marijuana dispensary raid in Santa Ana, California. The dispensary operators had a feeling that they were going to be raided, so they set up a secret video camera just in case. Every raid video footage I see breaks my heart and makes me upset, but the video from this raid was particularly disturbing. Below is a description of the raid, via the Los Angeles Times: An officer examines what appears to be an edible. On the video, he tosses it into his mouth and flashes a thumbs-up gesture. The

How Did Marijuana Become Illegal In The First Place?

It always surprises me how many people out there don’t know how marijuana became illegal in the first place. One of my biggest pet peeves is when someone is opposed to marijuana reform simply and only because it’s currently illegal at the federal level. I have always hated that logic. There have been a lot of things in American history that have been perfectly legal or prohibited, yet in no way should those things have had those legal statuses. Allowing women and minorities to vote was illegal for a long time in America. Slavery was legal. Should either of those

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

The 2015 Global Marijuana March Was a Success

On Saturday marijuana reform supporters marched and rallied in hundreds of cities across the globe. I wasn’t able to attend the closest one to me (Portland) this year, but I heard great things from all over the world. There are few things that I find as inspiring and empowering as seeing a massive group of activists gathering in a public place to express their support for sensible laws. Below is a video that I found from the march in Vancouver. If you attended this years march in your area, please post your experience in the comments section so that others
