High Times Medical Cannabis Cup returns to SoCal this weekend

This weekend, on February 8th and 9th, an estimated 17,000 weed enthusiasts from every corner of the cannabis community will descend on the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino for the second time in as many years, to feast their eyes, and their lungs, on the finest marijuana and concentrates that the west coast has to offer. While, technically, this weekend’s event is referred to as a High Times Medical Cannabis Cup, little or no flavor or culture is lost in translation between the new-age Cups in the U.S., and the granddaddy of them all, the official annual Cannabis Cup…

2014 Denver County Fair To Have Marijuana Contests

In a historic first for a county fair in the United States, the Denver County Fair – being held on August 1st through the 3rd – will feature multiple cannabis-themed contests, from plant judging, to joint rolling. Cannabis is a major theme for the Denver County Fair this year; they even placed a cannabis leaf on the 2014 poster. “We thought it was time for us to take that leap and represent one of the things Denver has going on,” says Tracy Weil, the fair’s Marketing and Creative Director. Says the Fair’s Co-Founder Dana Cain; ”Our motto has always been, ‘We’re mixing up…

Three Next Pot Legalization States in 2014

Colorado and Washington kicked down the door of pot prohibition in 2013, and several more will try in 2014, but only three are really considered by pundits as having a good chance. Alaska comes first; it looks like voters in the state will have the chance to decide on legalization this summer, and they have the Marijuana Policy Project backing the pro-legalization side, fresh off their victory with Amendment 64 in Colorado. Oregon is another good possibility, with three separate measures looking to get on the ballot this fall. Measure 80, which would have legalized certain amounts of recreational marijuana possession,…

Activists Decry New Legal Marijuana Rules

Changes to Dealer Provisions May Make It Harder for Those in Need to Get Medication Marijuana activist Sam Mellace hopes to be the first licensed medical marijuana producer in Canada after spending the past 10 years running his “pretty much” legal operation. The Abbotsford, B.C., resident has been producing marijuana since 2002 for himself and three other medical users, in accordance with current laws. But starting on April 1, 2014, authorized users will not be able to grow their own pot – they will have to get it from licensed producers. Mr.  Mellace finalized an application to Health Canada on…

Colorado dispensary makes fighting multiple sclerosis a yearlong mission

Of all the conditions that bring patients to The Clinic Medical Marijuana Centers, one is especially important to master grower Jay Price: multiple sclerosis. He knows which strains help the muscle pains and which strains help the eye spasms or the depression that often comes from battling the incurable disease. But helping a handful of patients find the right strain to ease their symptoms can only do so much, which is why for the last four years, the Clinic has been committed to fundraising for the national MS Society, quickly becoming one of the top donors in the region. For…

Mass. activists push to fully legalize marijuana

BOSTON — Pro-marijuana activists in Massachusetts have already succeeded in paving the way for dozens of medical marijuana dispensaries and decriminalizing possession of small amounts of the drug. Now many of those same activists have set their sights on the full legalization of marijuana for adults, effectively putting the drug on a par with alcohol and cigarettes. And those activists — as they have in the past — are again hoping to make their case directly to voters. The group Bay State Repeal says it’s planning to put the proposal on the state’s 2016 ballot. The group is first planning…

New Jersey’s Second Medical Marijuana Dispensary To Honor Activist!

Literally days before the grand opening of New Jersey’s second medical marijuana dispensary, the dispensary owners of Compassionate Care Foundation, Inc., held a building ceremony yesterday in memory of an ardent patient advocate who helped get the law passed but died before she could become a customer. Diane Riportella was an active supporter of marijuana and even though she suffered from Lou Gehrig’s disease she still fought rigorously to persuade state law makers to finally legalize marijuana in 2010. Along with fellow advocates, Diane’s family and friends gathered up to pay tribute to her forever lasting efforts. “She was the voice,…

Gallup: Legal Pot Support Surges to 58%

Gallup is reporting this afternoon that 58 percent of Americans now support legalizing marijuana. Support surged ten points in the last year to 58 percent, a new record. “For marijuana advocates, the last 12 months have been a period of unprecedented success as Washington and Colorado became the first states to legalize recreational use of marijuana,” Gallup states in their release. “And now for the first time, a clear majority of Americans (58%) say the drug should be legalized. This is in sharp contrast to the time Gallup first asked the question in 1969, when only 12% favored legalization.” Gallup polled 1,028…
