Cannabis use has been banned from Olympic events since 1998, when Canadian snowboarder and gold medal winner Ross Rebagliati tested positive for trace amounts of marijuana during the Nagano Winter Olympics. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) even went so far as to strip Rebagliati of his medal, a move that was later overturned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport on the grounds that marijuana testing had not been a requirement of the Nagano Games. While Rebagliati retained his gold medal, he was also fueled with a desire to change the understanding of marijuana and cannabis use internationally.

Arizona is notorious for having some of the most punitive marijuana laws in the nation. The state voted for the second time against legalizing recreational weed in 2015, and if you're caught with cannabis, you'll likely face a felony; or a Class 1 misdemeanor, if you're lucky. However, Arizona medical marijuana is still an industry in full swing. You may be wondering how the state regulates a substance it's so at odds with, so here are answers to some common questions you may have.

Imagine a situation that could impact a nation. The battle is not about what's right and what's wrong, rather it’s a fight between those in control and those who represent the people. As leaders of the movement, representatives for Colorado marijuana knew the industry would be a success. But that didn't mean it would be easy to bring about.

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.

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.

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.

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.
