Traveling With Marijuana Still Isn't Perfect

Thinking about taking a vacation from your state of Colorado or Washington? Possibly going back to see family or friends or maybe just getting away? If you’re thinking about taking your recreational marijuana with you, you may want to think again. Even though the laws allow for cannabis to be consumed legally by people in these states, things are still a bit iffy with the TSA and the rules regarding flying with weed. In Colorado, the Denver Airport has “amnesty boxes” in which people can deposit their weed before getting on a plane. The airport has a very strict no

Washington D.C. Marijuana Decriminalization Takes Effect Thursday

Earlier this year, the Washington D.C. Council voted to decriminalize marijuana. The vote made possession of up to one ounce of marijuana an infraction instead of a crime, carrying a $25 penalty. The decriminalization measure required United States congressional review, which was rough. But, despite attempts to derail marijuana decriminalization in Washington D.C. by some members of Congress, the decriminalization measure is set to take effect this Thursday. United States House of Representative Andy Harris (Maryland) has led the charge to try to derail the process. This has led to a request from Washington D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray for D.C.

What To Do To Keep Caterpillars Off Your Marijuana Plants

The most harmful of these soft segmented pests are the Corn Borer and Hemp Borer. They eat the marrow within the stalk creating stem cankers, which weaken the plant.  A heavily infested cannabis plant can collapse.  A mere five to twelve larvae can literally destroy one plant.  Equally damaging are that the holes bored into the stems by Corn Borers leave an open door for other sap sucking bugs, resulting in the life literally being drained from the marijuana plants.  Hemp Borers attack the flowering tops.  This is one activity you want to nip in the bud right away! Oftentimes,

The Booming Marijuana Industry: The Next Dot-Com

By Amber Iris Langston I recently had the privilege of attending the very first national conference of the relatively young (they were founded in 2010) National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA). NCIA is the first national trade organization focused on the entire cannabis plant. It was also my first visit to Denver since stores opened up in January, and the feelings of freedom and anticipation for the future were palpable. Some call the NCIA “Big Pot”. In some ways they are probably right. But the truth is, the fight for legalization still has a long way to go, and no one

LARA Proposes Broad Changes To Michigan Medical Marijuana Program

Although you won’t find it announced in any press release or on the government’s website, big changes are being proposed for Michigan’s Medical Marihuana Program (MMP) by the government agency charged with overseeing the state’s 150,000 registered participants. Changes to the language of the medical marijuana Act must be approved through the legislature- and those proposals require a supermajority vote in both the House and Senate. That’s a tough path to travel, so the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) proposes to manipulate the Administrative Rules instead. LARA submitted the proposed changes for the MMP to the Secretary of

White House Releases 2014 National Drug Control Strategy

The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (more commonly known as the Drug Czar’s office; ONDCP) released its 2014 National Drug Control Strategy. The strategy has shifted some from previous years in that it more clearly focuses on reducing the harms associated with substance misuse, such as overdose and the transmission of HIV/AIDS, hepatitis C, and other infectious diseases, while also reducing the harms associated with punitive drug policies, such as reducing the use of mandatory minimum sentencing. The Administration’s rhetoric has evolved over the last couple of years – reflecting the fact that three-quarters of Americans consider

Why High Washington Marijuana Prices Are Not A Bad Thing

“Twenty dollars a gram?  Ain’t no way I’m spending five hundred and sixty dollars per ounce on weed!” My friend was reading the coverage of the opening of legal marijuana shops in Washington State, shocked at the high prices being paid for pot.  Sure, not as high a price as ten years in prison, but a steep price for my friend who’s getting pot from Oregon dispensaries at $180 per ounce. “Actually,” I reply, “the CBS affiliate in Portland says pot is thirty-three bucks a gram at Main Street Marijuana in Vancouver, once you figure in the tax…” “Geez, that’s…”
