There are several models for legalization but one of the best models I have seen thus far is what people refer to as the Mom-and-Pop model.

There are always good and bad points to all systems but in terms of general impact on society the Mom-and Pop model seems to be the best.   Benefits of...

Do you want a nation where...

The National Institute on Drug Abuse’s director, Dr. Nora Volkow stated “Do you want a nation where your Young people are stoned?”. After reading her prohibitionist inspired hysteria I have taken it upon myself to take this statement at face value and really dissect the meaning behind what she is saying. Obviously this point of view will not embark the universal consequences of the statement but...

There is a reason why the government fears marijuana’s great return. Some people blame Pharma while others blame Tobacco and Alcohol.
