U.S. Marijuana Lawyers and Laws

July 10, 2017

marijuana lawWith the rapid rise of marijuana legalization comes potentially vexing legal issues for consumers and the rise of marijuana lawyers. The key issue arising is the difference between federal and state law as marijuana is still federally classified as a schedule one substance, placing it in the same category as heroin, cocaine, and meth. This deeply flawed classification stems from a mostly weak premise that marijuana causes as much societal crime and strife as heroin – which is, at this time, contributing to one of America’s most serious drug epidemics in recent memory. Marijuana was moved to a schedule one classified drug during Nixon’s failed War on Drugs. Rather than target high-level cocaine dealers, Nixon redirected federal resources to go after petty criminals who were mostly minorities. Some say that Nixon’s approach was a thinly veiled manner in which to control the radical left, i.e., hippies, anti-war protesters, the Black Panthers, and the environmental movement. Maybe Nixon should have smoked some pot as it may have calmed his historically unparalleled paranoia.

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.

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. Limited in where to smoke, the sweet smell of terpenes often unfurls in the air, performing an olfactory danse macabre for children , families, and the non-smoking populations in parks, on sidewalks, and frequently in the open and public domain.

Medical Grade Hair Detoxification Shampoo: Does it Work?

November 8, 2016

Medical Grade Hair Detoxification ShampooThe use of hair analysis is indeed pervasive as an anthropological and forensic utensil; exposing a trove of information all packaged neatly in the strands of proteins we style, shape, cut, and mold — our hair. For a criminal investigator, hair can link an individual's DNA to a crime. To the anthropologist, hair can give us clues on diets and environments of the living, dead, and provide context to the great expanse of time immemorial.

What is Hemp: An Introduction

November 4, 2016

What is Hemp?It shouldn't be surprising that much of what we know about human history is derived from the things we leave behind. Between fossils, decayed structures, and megalithic formations (think Stonehenge), the high cost of recovery efforts do little aid in filling the gaps of recorded history.

September 30, 2016

How to Pass a Drug Test in 24 HoursStep One: Be free of all substances. I'm kidding of course, but the unfortunate reality of drug testing is not a laughing matter. As the marijuana industry expands into unknown social and legislative territory, you may be noticing that many employers still employ drug testing policies and procedures that have begun to feel outdated. I am sure I am not the only one who has noticed a change in public perception of marijuana. In fact, a study published in Colorado early 2014 revealed that between 2007 and 2011 the perceived risks of marijuana fell by an average of 13% in adolescents and the middle aged.
