Support Medical Marijuana In Los Angeles - Vote Yes On Ordinance F

Legitimacy is the key to legalization. Once regulated properly and within reason, both the medical and legal cannabis industries can be taken a lot more serious. This standardization will be the key to eventual nation-wide legalization and the assimilation of cannabis into everyday life. Ordinance F in Los Angeles is exactly the type of bill that exemplifies the progression and professionalism the medical cannabis industry needs. Unlike Proposition D-a measure that does not hold collectives to any business standards-Ordinance F  does it right. Here is its full mission: The Objective of Ordinance [...]

Wash. Pot Czar Predicted $50/oz, Said Those Concerned About Price "Smoke Too Much Pot"

Last summer on Show #29, I interviewed Professor Mark Kleiman, a UCLA Public Policy analyst who had written a book on marijuana legalization. He is now Washington State’s “Marijuana Czar” – actually, the CEO of the company that was awarded the bid by the Washington State Liquor Control Board to implement the state’s new marijuana legalization regulations. At the 4:20 mark of the video (naturally), Kleiman answers my questions about the economic effects of marijuana legalization at the state level, expressing that the cost to the retail customer should be [...]

Marijuana And Combat Sports - Behind The Headlines

If an athlete wants to use marijuana, for any reason, I don’t see any problem with it. I certainly don’t think that marijuana is a performance enhancing drug like steroids. One can argue that it gives you a different mental focus, which might be useful in some scenarios, but to me, hand to hand combat is not one of those scenarios. If I got punched in the face repeatedly for my job, I know I would want some cannabis to help cure the pain for sure. Radical Russ Belville discusses the issue [...]

NJWeedman At Philly Smoke Out

This video was uploaded on March 18th, 2013. I’m not sure exactly when it was filmed, but I do love all things NJWeedman. NJWeedman has fought extremely hard to end marijuana prohibition, and he’s a passionate speaker. I wish we had more people like him in our movement.
