It was a blissful Sunday evening in early October, and the night would begin with a question I've never had the chance to ask myself before: "So, what does one wear to a fall cannabis pairing dinner?"
Hello friend, You live in California, or Maine, or Massachusetts, or Nevada, or Arizona, like me. You are a voter, like me. But unlike me, you ...
Maybe this, together with all the dark talk of "rigged elections" from Trump will finally provide a dash of enthusiasm for Clinton, here at the homestretch -- it'd certainly be a fitting end to the most bizarre presidential campaign of everyone's lifetimes.
Several times per month someone will ask me how can they break into the cannabis industry. They've heard how lucrative dispensaries are, and often peo...
Cannabis is promoted as a treatment for many medical conditions. We'll take a look at two, chronic pain and epilepsy, to illustrate what we actually know about its medical benefits.
Every two years I'm asked my thoughts on the ballot issues. This year we have more proposals than usual, but my insight has not expanded accordingly. So I'm starting with those I most care about, and will get as far as I get. I expect you'll do the same.
California's Proposition 64 contains the strongest marijuana tax structure voters have ever seen. Only California avoids the trap of tying tax collections directly to sure-to-fall prices, and the trap of collecting next to nothing from reportedly-medical users. But is it flexible enough?

"Coming out of the closet" is a figure of speech long associated with the gay community but the expression has been used to describe many situations in which admission of some societal anomaly is involved.

A friend of Life in the Boomer Lane brought up a very serious issue at their breakfast out, the other day.
What we really need to do is teach people that a drug, is any substance that can alter the mind and/or body, rather than simplistic labels as "good" or "bad". We need to indicate that both legal and illegal drugs have individual effects that should be objectively studied. Only then, can we start a dialogue how to safely and responsibly consume them without abuse.
But the level of corruption emanating from the political elite and the country's role in Europe's illegal drug trade--both occurring with the alleged complicity of senior government officials--should concern policymakers in Washington, D.C., and across Europe.
In the early 1900's when marijuana first came under heavy scrutiny by the governing bodies of the United States, it was rare to mention marijuana without mentioning minorities.
