January 23, 2018

Recently, the FDA received approval by the DEA to recognize a synthetic version of the active ingredient in marijuana as a Schedule II drug. The ability to help push synthetic marijuana while denying access to the natural plant has many people wondering: “Why create what is already available?” That's a good question. “What will happen to marijuana freedom if this gains popularity?” would be a better one. The answer may not be what a cannabis supporter wants to hear.

Ah, Pennsylvania: a state known for its great universities and Quaker roots. Boasting vast expanses of farmland mixed with happening cities and a population of almost 12.8 million citizens, Pennsylvania is one of America's oldest states. (Seriously, the Declaration of Independence was signed in Philly. You don't get more American than that.)

The Trump Administration’s Marijuana Laws

As the country legalizes marijuana state by state, the Trump administration seems to be dead-set on preserving the current federal marijuana law that classifies cannabis as a Schedule I drug, thereby making it illegal on the federal level.

Drug Cartels as a Result of Sessions’ Cannabis Crackdown

By rescinding the federal policy to refrain from enforcing federal law in states with legal marijuana, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has effectively terrified people who are invested in legal marijuana businesses. His actions may also prove to be beneficial for drug cartels if people are scared enough to avoid registering with the state and making themselves a target for arrest when Sessions starts his anticipated cannabis crackdown. The revoked federal policy, called the Cole Memo, was established to protect legalized states from federal prosecution.

With the dawn of legalized recreational marijuana in California finally upon us, it's time to review the many laws and regulations that casual cannabis consumers should keep in mind as they stroll through the Golden State. While medical marijuana has been legal in California for more than two decades, the passing of Proposition 64 has resulted in a new set of laws that are specific to the recreational market and non-medical cannabis users. California natives and visitors should review these regulations in order to avoid unnecessary fines or possible arrest for the possession, use, or sale of cannabis. Let's have a look at the laws governing the new recreational cannabis marketplace in California:

The US Attorney of Massachusetts would not confirm if he will refrain from using federal law to prosecute legal cannabis businesses. The new Massachusetts U.S. Attorney, Andrew Lelling, was forced to make a statement after Attorney General Jeff Sessions rescinded the Cole Memo last Friday, resulting in demands from cannabis advocates to detail his plans as federal prosecutor.

Everything You Need to Know About Montana Marijuana

Waking up each day in America can be kind of confusing. There's the usual morning grogginess, of course (Thursdays frequently feel like Fridays to me until about 11am, when I'm brought sharply back into harsh reality), but it's more than just that. People wake up and immediately check the news, wondering what new laws have been signed in the night or which world leaders have been fighting about whose button is bigger. It's not uncommon to roll out of bed and question whether today's America will be more regressive or progressive than yesterday's.

Driving While High: Not a Risk Worth Taking

As a society, we are so past the point where impaired driving is cool. Too many people have lost their lives due to the irresponsible choices of inebriated drivers getting behind the wheel of a car. Mothers Against Drunk Driving was founded in 1980, a year when nearly 25,000 people died as a result of intoxicated use of a vehicle. Since then, awareness has skyrocketed and death toll numbers have declined, though there is still some confusion in an area that is anywhere but grey.

Times are changing, though maybe a little slower in Texas. Like the saying goes, everything's a little bigger in the state… even prejudices against marijuana. Up until September 2017, Texas was still lacking in medical marijuana dispensaries, and turned a cold eye toward the healing benefits of the plant. However, thanks to the Texas Compassionate Use Act, MMJ is becoming a little more accessible to many in need.

What Do Pre-ICO and Prop D Mean for LA Dispensaries?

Proposition D is a city ordinance that protects Los Angeles dispensaries and “grants a limited immunity from enforcement to medical marijuana businesses that do not violate specified restrictions.” Prop D, which was put into effect in 2014, actually bans marijuana within the city except for compliant medical marijuana businesses and, despite common misconceptions, is not a license to sell medical marijuana. It is a defense from law enforcement following federal law that protects Los Angeles dispensaries from prosecution if they are raided and shut down by police.
