California will implement legalized recreational marijuana on Jan. 1, and there is a provision within the new state law that will essentially erase criminal convictions of marijuana possession. Anyone convicted for possessing less than one ounce of cannabis can have their record reduced or erased in the state. The Washington Post reported that the new law is in line with a movement brewing across the country to eliminate and decrease penalties emanating from the war on drugs as penitence. Minorities have been disproportionately targeted and arrested for marijuana at frightening rates for years, and lawmakers in legal states are trying to make amends.

Nevada went live with legal marijuana in July of 2017, and the state ran out of legally produced and tested marijuana in a matter of days.

Just what exactly is the Cannabis sativa plant? Is it weed? Is it hemp? Well, technically speaking, it's both. Cannabis sativa is a herbaceous plant in the Cannabaceae family (flowering plants). The two main cannabinoids of the cannabis plant are cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the compound in cannabis that causes the psychoactive effects. CBD has no psychoactive effects, but it has strong medicinal qualities. The plant was classified by Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus in 1753.
