Pain is the number one thing that medical marijuana is prescribed for, simply because there are so many things that can cause pain. A laborious and physical job can cause joint degeneration and muscle soreness that leads to chronic pain. Other illnesses and diseases come with a big whopping dose of ouch as well. Different strains of marijuana are better for pain than others, so make sure to ask at the dispensary which one will work for you.
Right now, the city of San Francisco only offers one type of marijuana license, so now that the state has added 17 different types, they will have to figure out if they also want to allow all those different types of businesses within their borders. Right now, they only allow dispensaries. If they decide to allow cultivation, they will have to set the regulations of where it can be grown and how much can be grown at one time.
One Hawaiian weed farmer is resorting to another sort of security system that is not quite as usual. He is allowing a bunch of cows, belonging to cattle rancher friends, to graze on the property, which is about 40 acres. The cows will clear the brush and increase visibility so it will be very hard for anyone to sneak onto the property to steal any amount of marijuana. Since cows are pretty peaceful creatures, he is putting up signs that say "wild bulls" because that sounds a lot scarier than a mama cow grazing on some grass.
Most people agree that smoking an indica heavy blend of weed is the best kind of thing to smoke if you are trying to use weed so you can sleep better. Remember - indica = "In da couch" ie, the kind of high where you feel pleasantly happy snuggled up in your blankets sailing off to dreamland. Sativa heavy blends can make your mind spin faster than is helpful at bedtime, and some have reported that it actually gives them strange dreams.
Until now, the weed industry has had to live underground, which means that they haven't been able to benefit from the same types of technological advances. However, with states like Colorado, Washington and Alaska on board, California could tip the scales and make weed the next new startup idea. Many startups are located in the state to begin with, and people who live and work in the state are typically a fan of start up culture, so it is a natural fit.
Marijuana was the ideal crop to trade during the times before historic record. This is because it had so many uses at the time. Now we just use it to make ourselves feel good but at the time people used the whole plant to create fibers for rope and clothing. The trade road started by this tribe, known as the Yamana, later grew into The Silk Road, the large trade network that developed later on in history and facilitated the exchange of not only goods but also ideas between cultures.
Eugene Monroe is a great player, but most people will probably remember him for being one of the key players who asked the NFL to reconsider their position on allowing players to use medical marijuana. The reason for this is because the NFL doctors often prescribe painkillers that are much more harmful to the body than marijuana. His views were quite controversial to his team, and he thinks that might be one of the reasons he was "released" from his position earlier this year, though no one can know for sure.
It's heartwarming to see at least one issue that everyone can agree on in this day and age when politics are so controversial and there are lots of issues that do not encourage people to reach "across the aisle." If there's one thing everyone wants to get along about, it's weed. That's the nature of the substance in the first place, so it's quite fitting that everyone should finally see eye to eye.
So far, it seems like Willie's Reserve will only be available in states that allow recreational marijuana which is thus far, just Colorado and Washington state. Recreational marijuana is on the ballot in California for November, so if it passes (and many analysts believe it will) Californians will be able to get Willie's Reserve too. The company is based in Colorado, and if you live near the headquarters in the state, then you can work there because just last month they were hiring for five positions!
If you're a Florida resident who is going to be eligible for medical marijuana, you should know that the dispensaries are only going to be able to be cash only, so you can't pay with a credit card. In addition, this first dispensary will be in Tallahassee, and Trulieve believes they will start dispensaries soon in other cities in Florida, including Pensacola, St. Petersburg, Clearwater and Bradenton. Welcome to MMJ, Florida!

It shouldn't be a surprise that medicare prescriptions costs are lower in states which offer access to medical marijuana. This has actually long been a fear of pharmaceutical companies - that medical marijuana would make many of their expensive drugs somewhat obsolete. It's clear that in states with MMJ, the common abbreviation for medical marijuana, doctors and prescribing authorities prefer to give out scrips for the natural herb rather than prescription pills which could have nasty side effects that go far beyond the munchies.
Two of the largest life insurance providers in Canada have changed their stance on pot smokers, and have decided to no longer treat them like cigarette smokers. This is great for pot smokers using these companies' policies who used to have to pay the same high premium as those who enjoy smoking tobacco.

A new company known as Whoopi and Maya, will have not only edibles but also topical ointments, tinctures and even a luxurious bath soak! Whoopi Goldberg, one of the founders, told one interviewer online that the products are for those who don't like to smoke weed, or for those who actually need to go about their day and not be completely stoned in order to help their menstrual cramps.
According to the ACLU, it's not just a perception that weed is an issue that everyone - even conservatives - care about, it's true! Some political analysts believe that this is because the conservative parties have gotten an injection of pure libertarianism in the past few years, and one tenet of being libertarian is that they believe the government should keep their noses out of most things. Thus, with a more libertarian look at things, more conservatives believe that weed laws should be up to the states and may even believe that it should be up to individual people when, how and why they want to use marijuana.
Some of Australia's 8 states had already legalized weed for medicinal purposes prior to a bill allowing medicinal marijuana being passed, but the Australian legislators believe that it will be better for the whole country to have a more cohesive plan that will hopefully make it easier for those who need marijuana to get it. It's just one step closer to a world where anyone who wants to get their hands on some weed to feel good, or to help their health, can do it.

One reason why legalization is coming up for many countries is they are realizing that prohibition attitudes just do not work. All countries have to show for that attitude is overcrowded prisons and lots of people who have records for small crimes.
Canada's legalization of weed would be breaking a bunch of international treaties that were invented to help prevent drug trafficking across borders, but really just served to provide useful fodder for the prison-industrial complex that has been flourishing in developed nations. If Canada legalizes pot without any repercussions from other countries who are part of these treaties, it could pave the way for other developed nations to legalize more easily. There always has to be a first!
During the Democrat's Presidential Debate last night the subject of Marijuana legalization came to the forefront and three important things happened, and by far the most important was Bernie Sanders' decision to endorse full legalization of marijuana nationally!
Stay away from synthetic drugs and harsh chemicals. If you want to consume marijuana, always make sure you are doing it legally and are abiding by all regulations of the jurisdiction where you are present. Choosing to ingest spice or any other nonsense because you were unable to find legal marijuana is no better than dating a wood chipper because you were having a hard time finding an actual girl.
Oregon's laws are a lot more permissive than Washington laws and that seems to be the way laws are evolving state to state. In both states medical marijuana patients can possess more pot and grow their own marijuana, so this comparison is focused only the laws that deal with recreational weed enthusiasts.

In celebration of 4/20, the unofficial weed holiday, The Cut, made a great movie featuring three guys smoking weed for the first time in a long time. Why haven't these men been able to partake in the lovable past time? Well, they used to be cops, which is typically a no weed profession.

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission is supposed to start taking applications for weed stores in January of 2016, meaning that the first shops will likely open in mid to late 2016. So, it's a temporary problem, but for now, it is somewhat of a "catch 22." You can smoke pot in Oregon, but it's cloudy as to how you can legally obtain it.
What makes the story particularly believable is the fact that Costco was founded in the Washington town of Kirkland, and that Costco is now the world's largest seller of Wine and Liquor with billions of dollars in revenue each year coming from alcohol related sales according to published reports.
A representative of Hotels.com said searches for Denver bookings during April 17-20 are up more than 60% over the same period in 2014 and searches last April had skyrocketed 73% higher than the same period in 2013 before recreational marijuana became legal in Colorado. That means hotel searches have more than doubled in two short years, and booking to capacity is likely for nearly every hotel in the area - which brings a massive influx of money to the state as tourists arrive and spend at restaurants, events, stores and more throughout the local area.
A federal judge in Sacramento, presiding over a criminal case against seven men charged with growing marijuana on national forest land in Trinity and Tehama counties, heard what she described as “new scientific and medical information” that questions the validity of the federal ban on cannabis.
As legal marijuana starts sweeping its way across the country with many legislatures submitting bills and voting in favor of new legalization laws, the debate some Americans have about the impact of legal marijuana as compared to legal alcoholic beverages has become increasingly interesting. Now The New York Times is stepping into the discussion with an article from the point of view of leading pediatrician Aaron E. Carroll, a professor of pediatrics at Indiana University School of Medicine.
Now that marijuana is moving toward national legalization, a new set of questions are emerging and states are doing their best to deal with past mistakes properly. A newly decided landmark Marijuana court case in the state of Connecticut may quickly become the example all other states follow when wrestling with questions about the best way to handle existing marijuana convictions in jurisdictions where the laws have now changed so that the exact same activity would now no longer warrant any kind of criminal penalty.
The new legislative act, labeled New Hampshire Bill HB494 is an essential first step forward for hemp in the country. The movement will continue and the hope is that citizens and state legislators across the nation will wake up and take back their rights like the people have already done in Colorado, Oregon and Vermont where courageous farmers are growing industrial hemp during an unfortunate period of federalist uncertainty. It is time for the federal government to withdraw its attempt to overstep its authority with regard to hemp and allow the free market to dictate the future of what appears to be an exceptionally useful natural resource.

There is a growing media frenzy a new Senate bill titled: The Compassionate Access, Research Expansion and Respect States (CARERS) Act, introduced by Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), which would drastically curtail the involvement of the federal government regarding state-legalized medical marijuana programs and would also seem to encourage more research into the medicinal benefits of the cannabis plant through a series of important major changes in federal law.
Even President Obama appears to be ready to legalize marijuana. “As has been well documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life. I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol” he told the New Yorker - which is hardly the same level of condemnation former Presidents expressed about the idea of legalizing cannabis for recreational enjoyment nation wide.
The founders of Ben and Jerrys ice cream speak out in favor of marijuana infused ice cream.

The medical-marijuana retailer planned to use the joints for its so-called "12th Pack" promotion that includes a 12-pack of joints named after the "The 12th Man" as loyal Seahawks supporters are commonly known. However, some fans are now questioning whether that much quality weed in the Seattle atmosphere was part of the reason why the 'Hawks had a brain cramp at the one yard line and inexplicably decided to throw the ball into tight goal line coverage in the middle of the Pats' defense rather than handing the ball off and allowing "Beast Mode" running back Marshawn Lynch to run it in from a spot most sports fans considered a 'gimmie' for the best power back in the world.
