    Why are Hemp Farmers Fed Up with Federal Seed Laws?

    Even though the cultivation of industrial hemp is now legal for research and development purposes in a number of states, farmers who are trying to revitalize the American hemp industry are facing myriad legal issues related to the acquisition of their most important resource: viable hemp seeds. These issues stem from the fact that although states may have legislation for growing industrial hemp, it is still illegal under federal law. For no reason that any sane person can comprehend, industrial hemp — with THC levels below 0.3% — is still classified as a Schedule I controlled substance. For farmers, the problems start…

    The Medical Minute: These Researchers are Developing a Weight Loss Medicine with Cannabis

    Imagine a world in which cannabis is listed as one of the key ingredients of a weight loss medicine. It may sound like an amusing irony to those of us easily afflicted by the munchies, but a recent study published in the journal Endocrinology suggests this idea isn’t so far off. Apparently, a mixture of vitamin A and cannabis constituents holds promise as the next solution for obesity. “The results of our study show, for the first time, that particular compounds in cannabis and vitamin A can work together to reduce the deposit of lipids,” said researcher Dr. Yann Gilbert. “This finding opens up exciting…

    What Would a Trump Presidency Mean For Cannabis?

    As more candidates announce their campaigns for the 2016 presidency, we couldn’t help but wonder what each politician’s presidency would mean for the state of cannabis in the U.S. Some candidates have openly shared their thoughts on cannabis while others are a little more shifty. For example, we know what Bernie Sanders would do for America if he became President – he emphasizes end the War on Drugs, decriminalizing cannabis nationwide, and helping reduce the prison population. Other candidates, like& Chris Christie, for example,would crack down on cannabis and even go as far as enforcing federal law in states with legal medical marijuana or…

    Oregon Court of Appeals Doesn’t Find the Smell of Cannabis Smoke to Be “Unpleasant”

    Earlier this summer, I wrote a Weekend Weirdness post about how the city of Pendleton, Oregon wanted to fine its residents up to $500 for any offensive cannabis smells that float over from their property onto someone else’s. The issue prompted a tongue-in-cheek letter to the editor of the East Oregonian calling for the city to also fine smelly farts. Instead, the Oregon Court of Appeals decided that the odor of burning cannabis does not actually smell that unpleasant, after all.  Last Wednesday the appeals court issued a ruling on the matter, disagreeing with some folks’ assertion that the smell of cannabis is equal to…

6 Reasons Why We Need to Support the Scientific Investigation of Medical Cannabis

Nowadays, the only way to determine if medical marijuana will relieve your symptoms is to try it. And even if you do experience relief, you won’t know for certain whether it’s attributable to cannabis or to the placebo effect because there hasn’t yet been enough scientifically rigorous clinical research done on cannabis to make reliable assertions on its application and effectiveness. While some claim this dearth of evidence is due to the reluctance of “big pharma” to pursue research because of the lack of potential profits, a bigger, more obvious reason is the fact that cannabis is illegal. And not…

The IRS Just Gave the First Church of Cannabis Tax-Exempt Status

Remember when we recently wrote about the establishment of the “First Church of Cannabis” in Indiana? The church was founded by Bill Levin following the state’s passage of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, a bill that has received sharp criticism for allowing discrimination against anyone (such as gay people) who violates a business owner’s religious beliefs. In addition to collecting a suggested monthly tithing of $4.20, the First Church of Cannabis sought “love, understanding and good health” and planned to set up counseling for heroin addicts and a space for Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.  Well, wouldn’t you know it, the IRS just granted the church tax-exempt…

The U.S. is Getting a New Attorney General and Head of the DEA: What Does This Mean for the Cannabis Movement?

The United States is experiencing quite a shakeup in both DEA and Attorney General leadership, and the moves could mean big things for the cannabis movement. The first notable change is happening at the Drug Enforcement Agency, where tough-on-cannabis Michele Leonhart, who built her career on becoming the first female DEA agent to head up a field office and currently serves as the chairwoman, administrator, and head of the administration, will be retiring in May amid scandals over sex parties in Colombia featuring DEA agents, cartel-funded prostitutes, and some very poor judgment. In 2012, during a House Judiciary subcommittee hearing on Crime, Terrorism,…
