Vote Medical Marijuana Ad: Get Educated

Americans for Safe Access created a site to track where candidates stand on the issue of medical marijuana, and I encourage readers to check it out. If you get a chance to meet with a candidate, make sure to ask where they stand on this very important issue. If a candidate has expressed support in the past, but their actions don’t match their words, feel free to call them out on their empty rhetoric. Below is an ad created by Americans for Safe Access talking more about the issue. “This [...]

Hemp Building Material Absorbs Pollutants And Improves Insulation

Hemp never ceases to amaze me. Hemp is great for making clothes. Hemp seed is a great food source. Hemp is better to make paper out of than wood, although as we continue to transition to digital formats, that need is becoming less prevalent, but still prevalent enough to be relevant nonetheless. I read an article not too far back that showed hemp is likely to be used to make more efficient batteries in the future. It appears that hemp is a stellar building material too, creating a material that [...]

Legal recreational marijuana sales started in Washington near the beginning of July. However, until very recently, there was only one legal recreational marijuana store in Washington’s largest city of Seattle. There are now two stores in Seattle, with hopefully more opening sooner than later. The Seattle marijuana market consumer base is by far the largest in the state, and that translates to enormous sales revenues. How much does a Seattle marijuana store make in a day? Per Capitol Hill Seattle: Anybody who thinks Washington’s I-502 pot business is fun and [...]

Advanced Cannabis Solutions Purchases Bank Location In Denver

The Bank Facility Purchased By Advanced Cannabis Solutions Will Be Called ‘The Greenhouse’ And Will Eventually Serve As A Full Service Bank For The Cannabis Industry In the not too distant future, the cannabis industry will be allowed to bank like any other industry without obstacles. At least that’s my hope. But I don’t think that’s too bold of a prediction considering just how much money the cannabis industry brings in. There are already some cannabis businesses using banks, but there are many, many restrictions involved, and more bank accounts [...]

No On 91 Campaign Makes The Case FOR Legalization

On Friday, Mandi Puckett, the head of the No on Measure 91 campaign trying to defeat legalization in Oregon, held a press conference Friday that was chock full of concerned moms and precocious kids.  More telling was the presence of law enforcement and drug treatment professionals joining in to protect the drug war grants and easy forced rehab clients they get from prohibition. As I watched the live stream of their press conference, however, I was shocked by how often these anti-pot crusaders made the case FOR legalizing marijuana under [...]

Fighting Stigmatization Of Drug Users In Denver

By Phillip Smith In many ways, ours is harsh, moralistic, and punitive society. One need only look at our world-leading incarceration rate to see the evidence. We like to punish wrongdoers, and our conception of wrongdoers often includes those who are doing no direct wrong to others, but who are doing things of which we don’t approve. We label those people of whom we don’t approve. When it comes to drugs and drug use, the labels are all too familiar: Heroin users are “fucking junkies;” alcohol abusers are “worthless drunks;” [...]

Querkle Marijuana Strain Review And Pictures

Querkle Cannabis Strain Review And Pics The Querkle marijuana strain was created by legendary seed breeders at TGA Genetics.
