By Phillip Smith A slight majority of adults say the federal government should not attempt to enforce federal marijuana laws in states which have voted to legalize it, according to a new YouGov poll.

It has a margin of error of +/- 3.4%. The poll comes as the Obama administration ponders how to respond to last month’s passage of marijuana legalization measures [...]

The medical marijuana marketplace is being revolutionized by Cooperative Nation. Any medical marijuana patient may sign up for free. Cooperative Nation created a platform where normal patients [...]
Now that two states have “legalized” marijuana, I feel no safer today than I did before (even though I live in one of those states). I do feel rest assured that my peers here are tolerant of a certain lifestyle choice. I feel no safer since I could still be a victim of circumstance just like what happened to me in Wyoming. Whenever I advocate for marijuana rights, I hate being considered an activist; to me it’s just plain common sense. When one inquires about the many travesties in life, alcohol [...]
California Appellate Court Rules In Favor Of Family Who Wrongfully Had Their Child Taken Away There aren’t many things that make me sadder than hearing stories about parents having their children taken away.

Snoop Lion Answered Questions From Fans On Reddit.Com Earlier this week Snoop Lion did a Q and A with fans on Reddit.Com, in which he answered a lot of questions about marijuana. The question that has seemed to gain the most attention was when he was asked ‘On average, how much do you smoke in a week?’ Snoop’s answer? 81 blunts a day x 7. That’s pretty intense! But is that even possible? Assume a person is awake 16 hours a day. That works out to 5 blunts an hour, [...]
