Hackers Steal $100,000 In Bitcoins From Cannabis Road

Buying marijuana over the internet is a shady business. As I’ve always told people, don’t do it. You may want to do it. You may be so desperate to do it that you try to convince yourself that it will work out. But even then, DON’T DO IT. Buying marijuana over the internet is very much illegal, so the likelihood of you trying to purchase marijuana from a narc is high, and the likelihood of you trying to buy marijuana from a jacker is even higher. I’ve had numerous people [...]

Will Costa Rica Legalize Medical Marijuana?

Marijuana is medicine. It’s a statement that I make over and over. Anyone that denies that marijuana is medicine needs to do more research. There’s a reason why the United States government has marijuana patents. Medical marijuana reform is something that every state and country should be pursuing. It helps patients treat their ailments without the harmful side effects of pharmaceutical drugs. Costa Rica is the latest country to contemplate medical marijuana legalization. Per Inserbia: The proposal, put forth by a Deputy of the nation’s unicameral Legislative Assembly, already has [...]

The Desperate Lies Of Josh Marquis, Part II: There's No Money in Legal Weed

In continuing my dissection of the obfuscations and half-truths of Clatsop County DA Josh Marquis, the leading spokesperson for law enforcement’s opposition to marijuana legalization in Oregon, I happened upon a statement of his on his personal Facebook page that claims Measure 91′s legalization of marijuana won’t provide any tax revenues to local law enforcement: Section 44 is a spaghetti-like maze of divvying up what is likely to be very little net revenue. In order to compete with the “black market” M-91 keeps taxes much lower than WA or CO [...]

Low Temp Dabs Vs. High Temp Dabs

By Aarr Kellz, Spaceship Earth Farms To dab or not to dab is no longer the question. The question, is at which temperature should we dab? Well I was recently introduced to the joys of low temp dabbing. So what is low temp dabbing? Low temp dabbing is when you take a dab at a lower temperature and cover the heating source with a carb cap while inhaling. This results in the process of convection, and much like a dutch oven, the heat gets trapped and causes concentrate that would [...]

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 [...]

Illinois Governor Signs Hemp Research Measure Into Law

By Paul Armentano, NORML Deputy Director Democrat Governor Pat Quinn has signed legislation, House Bill 5085, authorizing state universities to cultivate industrial hemp for research purposes. The new law takes effect in January. Illinois joins more than a dozen states — including Hawaii, Indiana, Nebraska, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah earlier this year — that have enacted legislation redefining hemp as an agricultural commodity and authorizing state-sponsored research and/or cultivation of the crop. In February, federal lawmakers approved language in the omnibus federal Farm Bill authorizing states to sponsor hemp research absent federal reclassification of the plant.

34,000 New Mexicans Suffering From Alzheimer's Denied Access To Medical Cannabis

The Secretary of Health denied a petition to add Alzheimer’s disease to the list of medical conditions eligible for the medical cannabis program, even though the New Mexico Medical Cannabis Advisory Board voted unanimously to recommend making neurodegenerative dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, qualifying conditions. Alzheimer’s disease, similar to many of the conditions presently included in New Mexico’s Lynn and Erin Compassionate Use Act, is a neurologic disease and has no known cure. Existing medications provide only temporary relief, without stopping the progression of the disease. “It is really unfortunate that New Mexicans [...]
