As marijuana use in the US continues to be seen as less socially and legally taboo, both medical and recreational marijuana markets are being adjusted to further protect public health. Laboratory testing is increasingly becoming a requirement for marijuana or marijuana-infused product manufacturers, leading consumers into a retail environment where the potency of various plant compounds, known as cannabinoids, are represented in percentages. THCa and THC are the two cannabinoids most directly linked to the “high” users receive after smoking or otherwise heating raw or dried marijuana, but what is the difference?

Recreational marijuana will be legal in California on Jan. 1, and many people are wondering if housing laws will affect them smoking at home. Smoking marijuana will be legal on private property, including places outside on the property such as the back yard or front porch. The Adult Use of Marijuana Act also permits people 21 and older to cultivate up to 6 plants in or on their residence for personal use on their private property.

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.

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.)
