Why is Jeff Sessions a Threat to Legal Marijuana?

March 1, 2017

jeff sessions pursed lipsWhen we look back on legal marijuana, 10…20…50 years down the line, it may be as a medicine, an age-restricted legal intoxicant, and the impetus of a state vs. federal government battle unseen before in the modern era. While speculation may be able to conjure more anxiety than anything else, the battle for legal marijuana — with Jeff Sessions as Attorney General — is poised to test the extent of State rights in our fine & friendly North American land parcel.

January 11, 2017

best cannabis studies 2016 logo leafbuyer blogFrom the perspective of the earth, the annual celestial orbit around the sun encompassing 2016 was, probably, nice; it went full circle, had some seasons, and chilled (* heated). No meteorites and only a few quakes. For the species that dominates the planet’s biosphere, the year took twists and turns that no one was prepared for. Here in the United States,  the Trump Administration is an actual thing and cannabis is now permitted, either recreationally, medically, or both, in an additional eight states in the US.

January 9, 2017
marijuana banking elizabeth warren
Elizabeth Warren seeks to get marijuana banking out of legal limbo.

If you've ever been into a dispensary, it is, in many ways, an unrivaled cannabis purchasing experience of the modern era. And yet, there remains one thing constant: you have to pay with cash. Holding true in both legal and illegal markets for marijuana, this technicality has been largely overshadowed where cannabis markets have pressed the YES button on adult legalization but is nonetheless an example of the shaky ground on which marijuana legally exists.

From Licensing to Possession: Colorado Marijuana Laws Compared to New Maine Laws

January 6, 2017

colorado marijuana laws compared to new maine laws logoIt's always fun comparing state-by-state cannabis laws, as it highlights two things: regional culture and the interpretation of federal expectations therein. As you can imagine, the distillation of two legitimate powers — social power from culture, actual power per governmental adherence — in regards to cannabis leads us into a legal territory that is akin to walking on eggshells; an uneven legal landscape foreshadowing anxiety, scrutiny, and oversight (and revenue).

nationwide marijuana laws logoA plant walks into a bar, and the bar loses its liquor license. In Colorado, at least, this is true, following changes in what type of establishments can operate with a liquor license. The plant in question: Cannabis, and since we all know that plants can grow, but not, well, walk, let's assume that our cannabinoid-laden, terpene-oozing plant flower was in the pocket of a bar patron (whom is also at least 21 years old, of course).

Where to Smoke Weed During Your Visit to Colorado

December 23, 2016

Where to Smoke in Colorado?Cannabis tourism is a real thing, yet it is also nothing new. With the recreational market in Colorado inviting many to take a trip to the dispensary, the subtle shock to find out that Colorado has yet to give consumers a place to indulge their cannabinoid nectars, syrups, chocolates, saps, dabs, edibles, cones, crosses, spliffs , and blunts is quite surprising.
