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.

Along with fellow advocates, Diane’s family and friends gathered up to pay tribute to her forever lasting efforts. “She was the voice,…

NorCal Outdoor Marijuana Harvest Arrives

5

It’s harvest season in the Bay Area, and a glut of outdoor-grown cannabis is hitting the market. The 2013 crop is bigger, and better, but also more conflict-ridden, experts report. More people planted personal gardens, more commercial greenhouses are protecting crops, and the outdoor season is running longer due to the massive adoption of light-deprivation techniques. But the outcry over the environmental harms of both legal and illegal growing has reached a fever-pitch, and organic/sustainable weed continues to make in-roads in the market thanks to increased demand, coupled with third-party verification systems like Clean Green. Deals will abound in the…

This is in sharp contrast to the time Gallup first asked the question in 1969, when only 12% favored legalization.” Gallup polled 1,028…

UK Government Report To Recommend Legalized Pot

1

Nearly a year after voters in two American states legalized cannabis, a report commissioned by the British Parliament is expected to recommend the country follow suit, reports the Sunday Times. The paper suggests the report will set off a bitter battle between conservative Home Secretary Theresa May and liberal Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, who pushed for the drug policy review. Last month a different study found that the United Kingdom could save over 1.25 billion pounds (2 billion dollars) by legalizing the prohibited plant. Secretary May has dismissed calls to consider more rational drug policy options, and earlier this year caught flack for criminalizing the khat plant that is…
