Where The War on Pot Will Go To Die
In some states, there’s an untenable mismatch between the crime and the time, but does anyone think that pot—medical or recreational—will still be illegal in 10 years? Now that a majority of Americans—54% and climbing, according to Pew Research—believe that marijuana should be treated like beer, wine and liquor, it’s time to ask: where does [...]

Feds May Cut Off Water For Legal Marijuana Crops
Some cannabis growers may soon find themselves with a lot less irrigation water if the U.S. government decides to block the use of federal water for state-legal marijuana cultivation. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, which oversees management of federal water resources, “is evaluating how the Controlled Substances Act applies in the context of Reclamation project [...]

Marijuana ‘Caregivers’ Getting Little Oversight
The young woman pulled her Subaru wagon into the parking lot of a Framingham hotel Wednesday night for a prearranged meeting with someone she knew only as Kool Guy, a man with short black hair and glasses who resembled actor Joaquin Phoenix.

It’s High Time For Canada To Talk Pot
Marijuana exists in a funny limbo in this country. Despite a growing number of people who feel it should be decriminalized, or outright legal – and regulated – it remains a controlled substance.

This is according to Statistics Canada’s Canadian Community Health Survey for [...]

Federal Government Ordered 1000 Lbs Of Marijuana
The federal government just ordered all the marijuana it wants — something it would send most Americans to prison for doing.

That’s about 1,433 pounds of pot [...]

DEA Chief Says Marijuana-Trafficking Spiking

How Bad Is Marijuana for Your Health?
The Journal of Neuroscience recently published a study linking recreational marijuana use to subtle changes in brain structure. The researchers, led by Jodi Gilman of Massachusetts General Hospital, identified increased gray matter density in the left nucleus accumbens and some bordering areas. The study was fine, but the media coverage was abysmal. Reporters overstated the [...]

John Paul Stevens Thinks MJ Should Be Legalized
Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens believes marijuana should be legalized by the federal government, predicting that the public will soon decide prohibiting the substance is “not worth the cost.” In a Thursday interview with NPR’s Scott Simon, the retired justice was asked if he believes the drug should be legal at the federal [...]

Marijuana Has Come A Long Way Since Last 4/20
What a difference a year makes. From 4/20, 2013, to 4/20, 2014, marijuana has taken big steps out of the shadows of the black market and into the light of the mainstream — from record high popular support and the first legal recreational sales, to an entire country legalizing marijuana.
