The judge was quoted as saying he would “not be able to live with himself” if he sent Mr. Yates to prison.

Last weekend, actress, comedian, and co-host of the television show “The View”, Whoopi Goldberg wrote in the well known marijuana blog “The Cannabist” that she felt New York’s medical marijuana program needed to be expanded. While Ms. Goldberg did applaud New York for finally making the...

710 Pen Sets the Standard ...

When it comes to receiving new products, presentation is everything – and the 710 vaporizer pen did not disappoint. Upon receiving the vaporizer, I was immediately enticed by the sleek matte black case with the signature 710 logo printed across it. As everyone knows, the number 710 turned upside down reads ‘oil’ and in the case of the 710pen, it’s presented beautifully in thin block white and...

How to butcher the America...

The American dream has been an inspiration to many people; some even cross perilous deserts to sneak into America’s back door for a mere sip of its splendor. However, if you ask the majority of Americans today whether the “American Dream” is alive and well, most would only stare down at the rotting corpse of its former glory. It seems that more and more Americans are in debt, it seems that...

United States the First Do...

Cannabis legalization is only a stone throw away. Every single day we can see more people jump on the legalization train and every day we see governments all over the world open their minds to the idea of legalization. While the subject has become very popular, there still is some resistance to the idea and there is a reason for this as well. Why Prohibition Lasted so Long Prohibition has been going on for...

Exploring one’s own consci...

Have you ever wondered where an idea comes from? How your imagination can dream up a plethora of crazy and wild ideas seemingly from ‘nowhere’. The origin of thought has stumped philosophers, scientists and intellectuals for centuries and while we can all assume no one will ever know the origin of thought. Your mind is a magnificent biochemical mechanism that processes a plethora of information and...

Debunking Prohibition Rhet...

How many times have you heard about “the children” as an excuse for prohibition? I’m sure many times over. But if we actually take this claim at face value and compare it to the obvious failure of the War on Drugs then we begin to question whether the motives for keeping drugs illegal are truly about the children, or whether there are other reasons at play. Drug War Failures Essentially the drug war...

How to “Chill out” a Hooli...

In Lisbon Portugal 2004 England was facing France in an epic battle in the Euro Cup 2004 opening game. For those of you who don’t know the English soccer fan, or really soccer fans in Europe…they get violent. They drink, they chant, the win or lose…names are spouted, fingers are shown and suddenly…a brawl breaks out. One punches the other, a kick to the face here, elbow to the testicles there and...

How “High” is a Marijuana ...

Recently a Kansas marijuana Advocacy group “Fire It Up Kansas” attempted to adopt a highway. Firstly, I would like to mention that this is an amazing idea and more advocacy groups should look into it. Not only would you have the ability to own a space where you publically can advocate the legalization of cannabis you’d also be doing a “solid” for society. Sadly however, they were denied their...

Marijuana and Professional...

Professional sports and cannabis have had their clashes throughout history. Many champions have had sponsorship deals removed, titles revoked and medals taken away. But the entire view on cannabis and sports is really distorted and doesn’t make too much sense. Cannabis doesn’t “enhance” your ability Unlike steroids or enhancement drugs, cannabis really doesn’t work in your favor. For competitive...

How Legalizing marijuana w...

The black market only exists because the substance is illegal. IF the substance was legal then the black market would simply be the market. Any non-market operations would have a difficult time competing with the lower prices of the market and not to mention advertisement space, quality, diversity and approachability. Advertising the Black Market away When I can walk into a store and buy an ounce without...

The Rise of Marijuana Bill...

The Marijuana Policy Project is pushing the boundaries with what is “accepted” in society by putting up some real cannabis billboards. Their recent endeavor once more caught media attention as they placed a 14-by-48 foot sign along the main boulevard to the Denver Sports Authority Field. The sign was directed to the NFL and their “anti-marijuana” policy begging the question; “Why are they driving...

Hemp Making Noise on the P...

Hemp is by far humanities greatest crop and still highly illegal in many places in the world. We often hear stories about Marijuana while Hemp is usually hidden in the dark. In the US hemp was bundled along marijuana and is a Felony offense despite the fact that Hemp does not get you high.
