The 2012 National Marijuana Business Conference Was The Best Place To Learn How To Invest And Profit In The Booming Marijuana Industry The second day of the 2012 National Marijuana Business Conference in Denver, Colorado was even better than the first, if that is even possible (To read my Day 1 recap, click this link). The morning started off with back-to-back keynote speakers. The first was Aaron Smith, Executive Director of the National Cannabis Industry Association. Mr. Smith’s presentation was title, ’2013 Legislation: How to Impact the Future – Your [...]
King And Pierce County Prosecutors Dismiss Over 200 Marijuana Cases It’s a great time to be living in King and Pierce Counties in Washington State. More than 220 misdemeanor marijuana possession cases are being dropped in response to the passage of I-502. Not only are current cases being dropped, but law enforcement in those counties will be treating the law as if I-502 was already implemented going forward. “Although the effective date of I-502 is not until December 6, there is no point in continuing to seek criminal penalties for [...]
A petition aimed at removing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) from the list of qualify conditions for the New Mexico medical marijuana program failed last week. The fact that someone felt the need to try this BS right before Veteran’s Day shows such a lack of compassion towards veterans that it makes me want to cry. “The New Mexico Medical Cannabis Advisory Board unanimously ruled Wednesday to reject the petition by an Albuquerque psychiatrist who said there was a lack of scientific evidence proving medical marijuana helped those with PTSD. The board [...]
I came across a video on YouTube with sports analysts talking about marijuana legalization, and how it might affect professional sports (NFL). I have always felt that if an athlete wants to use marijuana, which is far from a physical skill enhancer for athletes, they should be able to. Stephen A. Smith, Bill Romanowski and Skip Bayless debate if NFL players should be allowed to use marijuana where it is legal.
Colorado Amendment 64 Received More Votes In Colorado Than The Obama Campaign As loyal readers know, I just got back from Denver, Colorado where voters recently passed Amendment 64. It’s still hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that marijuana prohibition is dead in Colorado and Washington State. I find myself pumping my fist into the air in an expression of victory from time to time, whether there are people around or not. The federal government is ramping up it’s rhetoric, claiming that they will not allow [...]

The video below is of legendary campaign director Mason Tvert talking about Colorado’s Amendment 64 victory. One third of Americans think that alcohol is safer than marijuana according to Mason Tvert. I have a feeling that is going to change now that Washington State and Colorado have legalized marijuana!
By Laurel Dewey On Wednesday, November 7, 2012, Coloradans woke up to a brand new reality. The night before, residents voted to legalize and regulate marijuana like alcohol and tobacco and make it available to anyone over the age of twenty-one to use and possess as well as allow every adult to grow up to six plants. For some people who have fought against marijuana prohibition for decades, this is a huge day in the history of Colorado and a step forward in removing over seventy-five years of propaganda and, [...]
