Will Alaska, Oregon, And DC All Legalize Marijuana In 2014?

By Phillip Smith Labor Day has come and gone, and the 2014 election is now less than two months away. Marijuana legalization initiatives are on the ballot in two states — Alaska and Oregon — and the District of Columbia. For the marijuana reform movement, 2014 is a chance for a legalization trifecta on the way to an even bigger year in 2016, but there is also the risk that losing in one or more states this year could take the momentum out of a movement that has been on [...]

Workers' Compensation To Cover Medical Marijuana In New Mexico

According to the Courthouse News Service, medical marijuana recommended by a physician for an injured patient’s pain must be paid for by the patient’s employer and insurer, the New Mexico Court of Appeals ruled. Despite marijuana’s federal classification as a controlled substance, the court concluded that New Mexico law grants Gregory Vialpando reimbursement for medical marijuana to treat the high-intensity pain that followed failed spinal surgeries caused by a workplace back injury. As the ruling states, Vialpando met the required threshold for payments under New Mexico’s workers’ compensation laws when [...]

Help Investigate Anti-Marijuana Crusaders

Something stinks in Oregon. Marijuana opponents likely have broken election laws. The only way to know for sure is to get public records, which is not a cheap thing. Valued contributor to The Weed Blog Russ Belville is investigating elections violations by people that have been fighting marijuana reform in Oregon for years. Below is his ‘Go Fund Me’ request. I encourage everyone to donate, even if you don’t live in Oregon. Some of the same people behind these alleged violations are the same people that tour the country fighting [...]

Baltimore Police Publicly Sodomize Man During Drug Search

I just read a horrific story out of Baltimore, where a man was cavity searched during a drug search, during which no drugs were found. This is a story that every drug war supporter should be forced to read and explain. This is not the first time someone has been cavity searched during a drug investigation, but it’s the first one I’ve heard of that was done in public for everyone to see. Per The Free Thought Project: Jermaine Lyons was riding his bike on May 3, 2013 on his [...]

How To Quickly Dry Your Marijuana Plants

For those who who can’t wait and need a quick method to dry your marijuana plants you should hang them upside down in a dark room and increase the temperature in the room to more than 90% Fahrenheit (about 32% Celsius). This will probably require an electric- or gas-powered heater. The room should be well ventilated, but if the buds are rather tightly packed a large amount of marijuana can be dried in less than a week. If there is no specific need to do this, then taking an extra [...]

Colorado Recreational Marijuana Sales Surpass Medical Marijuana Sales

Recreational marijuana sales have been legal in Colorado since January 1, 2014. For the first six months, medical marijuana sales were larger than recreational marijuana sales. In some twisted form of irony, that mathematical fact was used by marijuana opponents like Kevin Sabet to indicate that legalized marijuana wasn’t working because people weren’t buying enough. Well, Mr. Sabet, you can feel relief knowing that recreational marijuana sales in Colorado have officially surpassed medical marijuana sales. It’s time for him to pick a new talking point I suppose. Per The Cannabist: [...]
