New Mexico Opioid Crisis

New Mexico Opioid Crisis Can Be Helped By Marijuana Says Lawmakers

As the New Mexico opioid crisis continues to people every day, New Mexico lawmakers are attempting to add opioid addiction to the list of qualifying conditions for the state’s medical marijuana program. Currently, opioid addiction is not included as a treatable condition in the state’s medical cannabis program. But at least one expert says it should be. Supporters gathered Monday in Santa Fe with representatives of the Drug Policy Alliance to build support for expanding access to medical marijuana. Anita Briscoe, a retired nurse practitioner, has witnessed the opioid crisis unfold firsthand in her hometown of Española, where the heroin epidemic has destroyed countless lives. “Over the […]

Colorado Freeing Inmates with Nonviolent Cannabis Charges

DENVER- After six years of legal cannabis in the state, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper is exploring the idea of granting clemency to nearly 40 inmates convicted of nonviolent marijuana offenses. The Democrat tells The Denver Post that it might be a good idea to invite qualifying inmates to apply for clemency for nonviolent pot crimes. The governor’s staff is reviewing the cases with the Department of Corrections. Hickenlooper publicly acknowledged his support for the idea during a Monday interview with the streaming television channel Cheddar. “We have been discussing this idea for some time and are carefully evaluating whether there are […]

Oregon Prosecutor Says There is Too Much Marijuana

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Oregon’s top federal prosecutor said Friday the state has a “formidable” problem with marijuana overproduction that winds up on the black market and that he wants to work with state and local leaders and the pot industry to do something about it. U.S. Attorney Billy Williams convened the unprecedented summit of influential federal law enforcement representatives, state officials and marijuana industry scions after Attorney General Jeff Sessions withdrew an Obama administration memo that had guided states with legalized weed on how to avoid federal scrutiny. The meeting included representatives from 13 other U.S. attorney’s offices, the FBI, the […]

Cannabis Banking

States Ask Congress to Support Cannabis Banking

A bipartisan mix of attorneys general from states that have legalized cannabis urged congressional leaders Tuesday to pass legislation that would allow banks to do Cannabis Banking. Law enforcement officials from 17 states, the District of Columbia and Guam say exempting banks that service cannabis businesses from federal criminal and civil penalties would provide safeguards for a multibillion-dollar industry operating largely on cash transactions. In the letter addressed to House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and other Congressional leaders, the signatories asked Congress to advance the Secure and Fair Enforcement Banking Act introduced last year. “The […]

New Regulations For Oregon Hemp Come Down

As of January 5, The Oregon Liquor Control Commission(OLCC) is enacting new rules for hemp regulation. Hemp was previously regulated by The Department of Agriculture. The new law left hemp in a state of limbo from the end of 2017 until today, when the new rules were officially announced. The new state law requires hemp growers or processors to obtain an OLCC certificate to bring their products into the OLCC system. Also, OLCC-licensed marijuana processors will need a special endorsement to process hemp. The Oregon Department of Agriculture already licenses hemp growers, processors (called handlers) and seed providers. The state […]

California Marijuana Laws

California Marijuana Laws, We Point Out The Details

California Marijuana Laws – In California, New Year’s Day 2018 brought more than just a hangover and a handful of half-baked resolutions. It brought sweeping change as the state’s much-anticipated Medicinal and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act fully comes into effect. Passed by voters in November 2016, Proposition 64 legalized recreational cannabis for people 21 and older. The initiative allowed for possessing, transporting, and sharing up to an ounce of cannabis and eight grams of cannabis concentrate, as well as growing as many as six plants at home. But unlike other states that have legalized weed, California has more than […]

Jeff Sessions Marijuana Ban

Legal Cannabis States Vow to Fight Sessions

Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a memo Thursday that reverses an Obama-era policy that enabled states to legalize marijuana without federal intervention. But that memo sparked a swift reaction from officials in Washington state, where recreational marijuana has been legal for 5 years now.  Here is Washington governor Jay Inslee, whose constituents voted to legalize marijuana some five years ago: “If news reports are accurate, today’s forthcoming announcement from Attorney General Sessions is the wrong direction for our state. It also disrespects Washington voters who have chosen a different path for our state. I am especially frustrated that this announcement comes after Sessions […]

Rescinding Cole Memo

Attorney General Targets Legal Cannabis, Rescinding Cole Memo

In a shocking, and possible disastrous move, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has rescinded several Obama-era directives that discouraged enforcement of federal marijuana laws in states that had legalized the substance. This could spell doom for the progress made by states like Colorado, Oregon, and as of January 1, California. Cali is expected to become the largest marijuana industry in the US. Well, it was. With this move and the daily chaos of the inept Trump administration, who knows how this will shake out? But for now, it’s smart to take this seriously. In a memo sent to U.S. attorneys Thursday, Sessions […]

Jeffreys Joint

When it comes to pushing boundaries, we commend any business that takes the risk to try something new.  Especially in an Oregonian culture where the number of dispensary’s out-number that of McDonalds or Starbucks, it is extremely important to push the norm and experiment.  We’ve seen dispensary’s like Farma, Serra, Chalice Farms, and Oregon’s Finest create niche atmosphere’s that engulf a customer when they walk through the door.  None though…have done it quite like what you are about to experience at Jeffreys Joint. Upon scoping the outside, and inside, of this new joint that is about to open on Green […]

Couple Sues SWAT for Raid Over Tea Leaves

WICHITA — A federal trial that begins Monday will focus on whether police lied about the results of tests on discarded tea leaves found in a Kansas couple’s trash to get a search warrant ahead of a SWAT-style raid on their home in search of marijuana. Robert and Adlynn Harte are seeking $5 million for economic losses, emotional pain, distress and humiliation and an additional $2 million in punitive damages in response to the 2012 raid on their Leawood home. Authorities targeted the Hartes, both former CIA employees, after seeing Robert Harte and his two children leaving a store that […]
