The federal government's prohibition on marijuana poses a wide range of problems. From the injustices of cannabis incarceration (especially for POC) to the restriction of medical relief for patients to the growth of an illegal drug market that benefits drug cartels, organized crime, and gangs, national marijuana laws are understatedly problematic.

Last year, the legal marijuana market was worth an estimated $7.2 billion, and it's projected to grow 17 percent annually, according to an analysis by New Frontier Data. Medical marijuana sales alone are expected to grow from $4.7 billion to $13.3 billion from 2016-2020. To say that the marijuana industry will slow down when heading into 2018 is far-fetched, especially because that's when California and Canada's recreational marijuana programs will go into effect. Fortunately, the marijuana industry has created and continues to create a surplus of employment opportunities, which have significantly boosted the U.S. economy. Read on to find out what the marijuana industry may look like in 2018 and onwards.

Michigan is one of the few Midwestern states whose voters have approved of legalizing medical marijuana, and now those voters and other marijuana advocates are pushing for recreational marijuana next. However, Michigan lawmakers have been altering the state's retail dispensary licensing rules, which has caused great concern amongst dispensary owners, cultivators, and medical patients. Due to Michigan's proposed changes, people were outraged with Michigan's Medical Marijuana Licensing Board, and Donald Bailey especially, because the proposal was his idea. The ramifications this proposal would have on Michigan marijuana business owners and medical patients would be significant; read on to find out why.

To say Las Vegas is a popular tourist location would be a hilarious understatement. Each year, Las Vegas experiences around 43 million visitors. Although Las Vegas is a common spot to drink, party, and celebrate different occasions, the city has recently become a cannabis hub because of the number of retail recreational dispensaries scattered throughout the state. These dispensaries have experienced much success since Nevada's recreational cannabis program went into effect this past January. Although anyone over the age of 21 can legally purchase and possess cannabis, they cannot legally consume cannabis in public, which raises the question of where you can safely and legally consume cannabis. Read on to discover discreet ways to consume cannabis and where you can legally light up.

You can’t always believe what you hear. Cannabis culture is full of myths. That is how marijuana's reputation has spread over the years: stories, which may or may not be true, ignite and leave behind an ashy residue of vague distrust. They can be fun, historic, or straight-up cool, though not always true. They spark whimsy, though not usually insight. Can you get high from eating raw weed? Probably not. Did George Washington grow hemp in his back yard? It is plausible. (But probably not true.)
