The health benefits of cannabis have been well known for years by some, and they are starting to gain attention worldwide. There have been recent studies  that indicate marijuana can effectively treat post- traumatic stress disorder and major depressive disorder. War veterans have been medicating with cannabis for its health benefits and have experienced significant relief from their symptoms. The governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, signed legislation recognizing cannabis as a treatment for PTSD this Veteran's Day, and even the FDA is recognizing the health benefits of marijuana.

There are multiple ways to determine whether there is marijuana in your system. The drug can be detected through blood, urine, hair, or saliva. When you smoke weed, the primary ingredient, THC, is metabolized and soaked into your body. Since the saliva test, unlike the others, focuses on THC content, it might suggest that marijuana has a comparatively short time span where it can be identified by using a saliva test.

Those of us lucky enough to live in states with legalized marijuana policies are accustomed to having medicine on-demand, 24/7. However, the holiday traveling season and transition into winter migration adventures have a lot of cannabis consumers asking the same question: Can I take my marijuana with me? While packing flower is a risky move when crossing state lines, edibles are the go-to portable products. The federal government's increasingly harsh stance against recreational marijuana should inspire traveling consumers to pack wisely and earnestly consider: Is flying with edibles safe?

Colorado is not only known for its beautiful scenery, epic skiing and snowboarding hills/mountains, and countless outdoor sports/activities, but as of 2014, they've been known as a huge marijuana hub for Colorado residents and out-of-state visitors alike. Although Colorado voters approved a recreational marijuana law in 2014, cities like Colorado Springs hasn't allowed any retail marijuana businesses within city limits, according to Westword. Colorado's recreational marijuana program has been very successful over the past three years, but this hasn't convinced Colorado Springs business owners and city council members to approve of recreational dispensaries opening within the city. Find out why they’ve been so resistant, and why Colorado residents are fighting to change this for 2018.

In 2012, voters in Washington and Colorado successfully passed marijuana laws allowing adults 21 and older to purchase, possess, and consume marijuana recreationally. Yet, a good deal of smoke remains when it comes to understanding what is legal, what is not, and the various social and legal mechanisms which continue to blur the two. Indeed, marijuana laws in Seattle have long been considered some of the most liberal in the United States. But don't let your good time end with a ticket. Here’s what you need to know about public weed consumption in Seattle

Located near the heart of American politics, complete with a network of world-renowned hospitals, universities, museums, and more, Maryland would seem to be a perfect place to study the many potential benefits cannabis can offer as well as any public impact. Amid controversy, confusion, and potential discrimination, the program, as administered by the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission, has inched forward more slowly than any other of the 28 states and the District of Columbia had in coming online with their respective medical marijuana programs.

Medical marijuana is currently legal in California, and recreational marijuana is becoming legal in 2018, but many residents in Calaveras County are fighting commercial marijuana cultivation with a county-wide ban. Members of the community, including Calaveras County Sheriff Rick DiBasilio, seek to ban commercial marijuana cultivation in Calaveras County.

Weed for Warriors: Caring for America’s Veterans

October 24, 2017

The Weed for Warriors Project LogoOrganizations like Weed for Warriors are highlighting the issues plaguing American veterans, including serious unresolved psychological issues. Rather than pumping them full of drugs, marijuana advocates point to a health alternative to potentially dangerous physician-prescribed remedies. It just boggles my mind that those who risked their lives trying to protect this country come home, are neglected, and get turned into drugged-up zombies. The failure at the VA is an example of how government has failed to reintegrate American veterans into a normal way of life, and if this remains the case, veterans will likely have to take matters into their own hands. We here at Leafbuyer want to reveal the issues veterans are facing on a daily basis and commend the actions of those who formed Weed For Warriors.
