Yes, you’ll be able to smoke weed legally in three weeks. But here are hard realities

California’s transition to legal cannabis contains a mind-bending paradox: Ending prohibitions on marijuana will require newly aggressive law enforcement. When Jan. 1 rolls around, California will not merely be permitting adults 21 and older to use marijuana for recreational purposes. The state and its cities will be creating a new regime to regulate and tax cannabis. The stakes are high: Successful cannabis legalization in America’s largest state could help end the devastating drug war in the United States. But if this transition turns messy, the Trump administration, which is devoted to debasing California and promoting thoughtless “law-and-order” policies, could bogart…

Obama Commutes 2 Marijuana Sentences And 44 Other Drug Offenders

President Obama commuted the sentences of 46 non-violent drug offenders on Monday, two of which were for marijuana. The president said the 46 prisoners had served sentences disproportionate to their crimes. “These men and women were not hardened criminals, but the overwhelming majority had been sentenced to at least 20 years,” he said. “I believe that at its heart, America is a nation of second chances. And I believe these folks deserve their second chance.” According to the Washington Post, Monday’s commutations mark the most in a single day since the administration of President Lyndon B. Johnson. Obama now has…

Washington’s Retail Marijuana Compliance Checks Didn’t Go as Well as Colorado’s

Last June, after Colorado’s retail cannabis program had been operating for six months, the state’s marijuana enforcement division ran a series of underage compliance checks to make sure businesses were conducting proper ID checks and refusing to sell to customers under the age of 21. Of the 16 underage operations that were conducted, all of the businesses that were tested passed. Unfortunately, when it came time for Washington to undergo the same compliance check, the Evergreen State wasn’t as fortunate as its rocky mountain sibling.  Despite the fact that various retail cannabis businesses were warned ahead of time by the liquor control…

Brazil to Allow the Import of CBD Hemp Oil Products from the U.S.

The Brazilian governmental health surveillance agency, ANVISA, is now allowing CBD hemp oil products to be imported into the country. Although any cannabis-derived products are illegal in the country, there’s been a recent shift in attitudes towards CBD hemp oil thanks to two brave little girls, 5 year-old Harper Howard from Texas and 6 year-old Anny Fischer from Brazil. Both young ladies suffer from CDKL5, a rare genetic disorder that causes frequent debilitating seizures. They’ve found considerable relief from using CBD oilto help mitigate the frequency of their seizures, sparking a discussion in Brazil as to whether the same medication should be allowed for…

Mo Money, Mo Problems: Colorado Struggling to Keep Cannabis Tax Money While Fighting Lawsuits

By now you know that Colorado is facing not one, not two, but three lawsuits over the state’s legal recreational cannabis market. Both Nebraska and Oklahoma are suing their neighboring state, as well as a Washington, D.C.-based group called Safe Streets Alliance, and most recently a group of sheriffs and prosecutors from Kansas, Nebraska, and Colorado are chugging the Haterade and piling on the lawsuits. “My office, as well as our partner state and local law enforcement agencies, are committed to stopping marijuana diversion. This lawsuit, however, even if successful, won’t fix America’s national drug policy-at least not without leadership from…

Israel Green Leaf Party’s Campaign to Legalize Marijuana is Awesome

With over 10,000 medical marijuana patients, state of the art research facilities, and some of the world’s foremost experts on medical marijuana, Israel has long been a worldwide cannabis industry pioneer. This progress has been in large part thanks to the aptly named Green Leaf Party’s efforts, which, as you may expect, promotes marijuana and has helped Israel reach its current, elevated status. Now, the Green Leaf Party has bigger plans for Israel’s future with marijuana: all-out legalization. Thus, the activist and political party started a Kickstarter campaign to raise awareness and funds for the group’s effort as the Green…

Afroman’s Because I Got High gets pro-marijuana remake

Afroman’s novelty song which once sluggishly lamented the lethargy and uselessness of weed consumption, has been given a rework to promote the legalisation of marijuana. Because I Got High (Positive Remix) lists the healing qualities of weed – ranging from the treatment of glaucoma to staving urges to consume booze, cigarettes and Xanax – while also pointing out legalisation’s benefits to society such as eradicating the likelihood of criminal activity. The remix of the 2001 track is a collaboration with online communityWeedmaps and marijuana reform campaign NORML in the runup to votes which take place on 4 November in Alaska, Oregon and the…

HIGH TIMES Interview: Charlo Greene

Charlo Greene grabbed international headlines last month when she left her job as a reporter for Anchorage’s KTVA with the now famous phrase, “Fuck it – I quit.” Greene decided it was time for her role as a journalist to take a backseat to her role as an advocate for marijuana legalization as the head of the Alaska Cannabis Club. And she made the most of her resignation. The inherent frustration and defiance in Greene’s epic, live on-air F-bomb resonated with smokers around the world and brought much needed attention to Alaska’s marijuana legalization movement. HIGH TIMES sat down with Greene to…
