Hip hop artist Riff Raff has his own strain of weed

When the LA Weekly found out that hip hop rapper/cult personality Riff Raff had his own strain of weed, they were pretty pumped and imagined dancing like a manic octopus, telling hilarious stories about how our father fights polar bears, and being blessed with sartorial inspiration. So they did what any curious writer should do: they made their way over to a local cannabis club selling the strain at five grams for $55. And then they got high.

Georgia lawmakers unanimously approve restrictive medical cannabis bill, bill moves to full House

A bill legalizing just CBD and only for seizure disorders was unanimously sent to the Georgia state House this week, advancing what would arguably be the country’s most restrictive medical cannabis laws to date. The bill, sponsored by Georgia Republican state Rep. Allen Peake, is aimed at helping the families of children suffering from rare disorders. Peake says he wrote the bill after meeting several sick Georgia children. The move was seen as a major step forward for advocates like Janea Cox, a mother who has helped rally support. Her child, four-year-old Haleigh, has become the poster child for the…

Indiana hemp bill passes Senate, moves to state House

Indiana farmers could soon be planting fields of hemp as an industrial hemp production bill moved through the state’s House Agricultural Committee earlier this week to the full House. With House approval, the bill would head to the governor’s desk as the measure has already been approved by the state Senate. If passed, Senate Bill 357 would legalize the production of hemp, which they define as having almost no THC by weight. Lawmakers have moved the bill forward by promising a new crop for Indiana farmers as well as having touting the potential for creating an entirely new industry around…

Minneapolis city councilman Andrew Johnson is a medical marijuana patient and advocate

Minneapolis Councilman Andrew Johnson is one of those rare characters in the medical marijuana debate, playing both politician and patient. He was diagnosed only a few years ago with an extreme form of glaucoma in both eyes, he says. Before major surgeries, his doctors have prescribed conventional medicine to decreased pressure, one of which had the potential to be fatal. “Our legislators allowed me to be on a drug that could kill me, but not medical marijuana,” Johnson says. “I have, as a result, less vision in my eyes.” Source: http://www.tokeofthetown.com/2014/02/minneapolis_city_councilman_andrew_johnson_is_a_medical_marijuana_patient_and_advocate.php

Maryland Democrat governor hopefuls all support marijuana reform

Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler this week told the Baltimore Sun that he feels the legalization of cannabis is going to happen, and that as governor he would ensure laws are implemented “the right way” if such a change were to happen while he is in office. Gansler joins the two other Democrat forerunners for the state Governor’s office with a pro-pot stance, state Del. Heather Mizeur and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown. Mizeur has campaigned openly on a legalization platform and Brown says that he would work towards decriminalizing up to an ounce of pot. Gansler also agrees that decriminalization…

Medical Marijuana Cultivation Proposal Advances In New Hampshire

A bipartisan proposal to legalize the cultivation of a limited amount of cannabis for patients in New Hampshire has been approved through the state’s House Committee on Health, Human Services, and Elderly Affairs. The measure was approved with a 13 to 3 vote. House Bill 1622 would allow patients or their caregivers to cultivate up to 2 mature plants and 12 seedlings, unless they’re within 30 miles of a medical cannabis dispensary, which were legalized last year, but won’t open until 2015. The proposal was introduced by Republican Representative Donald Wright, and is cosponsored by Representatives Emily Sandblade (R), Andrew Renzullo (R) and Tim O’Flaherty…

Missouri Man Jeff Mizanskey Serving Life In Prison For Pot Possession


While some cities and states across the U.S. are taking radical steps toward reforming marijuana regulations, a Missouri man named Jeff Mizanskey — and several other U.S. inmates like him — could die in prison for pot possession. Arrested in December of 1993, Mizanskey was found guilty for possession of five pounds of marijuana and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, as reported by Missouri-based news site River Front Times. Mizanskey’s son, Chris, and Missouri attorney Tony Nenninger, are asking Gov. Jay Nixon to grant the elder Mizanskey executive clemency and amend his prison sentence. Nenninger’s clemency plea on Jeff Mizanskey’s behalf outlines his history…

Marijuana May Prevent Blindness In Retinitis Pigmentosa Sufferers

It’s long been accepted that marijuana has direct benefits for glaucoma patients, but a new study suggests that pot may also prevent blindness for sufferers of another disease. That disease is retinitis pigmentosis, a degenerative condition that destroys the millions of microscopic light sensors (known as photoreceptors) in the human eye and has no known cure. Researchers at the University of Alicante in Spain may have stumbled on an effective therapy with marijuana, which they say might be able to significantly slow down the destruction of those light sensors. To conduct their study, the scientists gave a synthetic cannabinoid to…

The Epilepsy Foundation has recognized medical marijuana as a treatment for epilepsy, calling for better access to the drug and more research into its possibilities. “The Epilepsy Foundation supports the rights of patients and families living with seizures and epilepsy to access physician directed care, including medical marijuana,” said Philip Gattone, CEO and president of the Epilepsy Foundation, and foundation chairman Warren Lammert in a joint statement on Thursday. The foundation also urged the Drug Enforcement Administration to end restrictions that limit clinical trials and research into medical marijuana as a treatment for epilepsy. Under the federal Controlled Substances Act,…
