Michigan: Medical Marijuana Advocates Protest Removal Of Lansing Baby From Home

Groups supporting Michigan’s medical marijuana law are joining forces to protest the case of a six-month-old Lansing girl who was removed from her home after a complain involving medical marijuana use by her parents. Dozens of people held signs and chanted “Free Bree” outside the Grand Tower in Lansing on Tuesday to protest the Michigan Department of Human Services’ removal of Brielle Green from parents Steve and Maria Green, reports Ken Palmer at the Lansing State Journal. “These are good parents, good loving parents,” said Charmie Gholson, founder of Michigan Moms United, one of the groups organizing Tuesday’s press conference….

United States: Hemp for Fuel, Fiber and Freedom

Marijuana prohibition is really about suppressing hemp fuel and hemp fiber from competition with capital intensive, environmentally-harmful, mostly synthetic alternatives. This simple oil lamp demonstrates why they made up the ‘marijuana’ myth to stop competition to petrochemical fuels. We don’t need to fight wars for petroleum because we can replace petroleum with hemp seed oil for fuel, plastics and most everything else. Marijuana prohibition is really about money, power and the further centralization of economic and political control. It is really about social and economic justice. Restore hemp!

Did You Watch Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s ‘Weed’ Documentary On CNN?

Last night was the much anticipated airing of Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s documentary ‘Weed’ on CNN. I have read a lot of comments on social media and in the comments sections of many outlets, and it seems that the reaction has been mostly favorable. What was your reaction? Do you think we will see more people in Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s position come out with videos like this? To me, no one on the documentary said anything that hasn’t been said before – cannabis reform supporters have been saying these things for a long, long time. However, the messenger of the message…

Illinois (finally) Has Legalized Medical Cannabis Use

Illinois became the twentieth state (21st if you count Maryland’s recently-passed restrictive mmj program) to allow for medical cannabis yesterday, when Gov. Pat Quinn signed legislation passed last May into law. Quinn was flanked by Jim Champioin, a military veteran suffering from multiple sclerosis who uses cannabis to control his symptoms. The governor pointed to his faith as one of the main reasons he signed the bill. “I feel that this is something, whatever faith we practice, we all believe that helping those who are sick, helping them recover and also helping them deal with pain, that’s a tenet in…

First Two Vermont Dispensaries Open For Business (VIDEO)

Medical marijuana patients in Vermont now have two additional choices when deciding how to procure their medicine. Champlain Valley Dispensary in Burlington and Vermont Patients Alliance in Montpelier are both open for business as the first two dispensaries in the state.  Dispensaries were approved by the legislature in May 2011 and dispensary owners have had to jump through numerous hoops to open up shop – including getting Federal Bureau of Investigations background checks and outfitting their dispensaries with required security systems and emergency alarms. The rules – written by the Department of Public Safety – are slightly stricter than states…

New Jersey legislature easing medical marijuana rules for children, increasing available strains

Though the medical marijuana program approved by New Jersey voters is only three years old and just now getting off the ground, many say it’s time for some much-needed (and positive) changes. And thankfully, the legislature is listening. Senate bill 2842, which passed yesterday on a 25-13 vote, and Assembly bill 4241 would make it easier for children suffering from certain debilitating conditions to have access to medical cannabis, allowing dispensaries to sell edible forms of cannabis, and broadening the spectrum of strains allowed from just three to as many as the dispensary can track down and grow. New Jersey approved medical marijuana…

Danko’s Dutch Travel Tips For Marijuana Consumers

I have never been to Amsterdam, although I have always wanted to go. Now that there are Cannabis Cup events in America, it has watered down my desire a bit, but the desire to attend the Amsterdam High Times Cannabis Cup is still there nonetheless. I am not a fan of traveling, especially to foreign countries, mainly because I don’t know how to speak other languages and tend to stick out like a sore thumb. Luckily Danny Danko from High Times made a video giving would-be Cannabis Cup goers some tips on traveling to Amsterdam. “The 26th HIGH TIMES Cannabis…
