I have been getting a lot of inquiries lately from people outside of the marijuana industry who are trying to invest in the marijuana industry. For that matter, I have been getting a lot of inquiries from people inside of the marijuana industry who are looking for advice on what I think are good investments and good people to team up with.  I always explain to them that there is an enormous divide between people with excellent ideas, and people that want to fund those ideas.

Why Doesn't 'Will Of The People' Apply To Marijuana Legalization?

In case you have been living under a rock since before the 2012 Election, Colorado voters decided that marijuana prohibition in the state was over.

The premise is that, if voters do

Colorado Court Allows Employers To Discriminate Against Medical Marijuana Patients

On Thursday, a Colorado Court of Appeals panel ruled that a quadriplegic medical marijuana patient fired for off-the-job marijuana use had no expectation of job security, creating a disquieting legal situation in the state.
