Marijuana test strips give immediate indication of pot

There’s a new way for parents, teachers and others to see if someone they know has been using marijuana. It’s a test kit already being used by schools and police departments around the country.

Here’s who is not afraid to invest in cannabis

In an industry projected to be worth upwards of $40 billion in the next three years, one would think that banks would want a piece of this pie. But due to federal law that is not the case. Procuring funding in the cannabis industry is difficult, almost impossible.

Can you 3D-print marijuana?

Like cryptocurrency and GOOP, three-dimensional printing has adherents so passionate they border on the fanatic.

But unlike the cults of digital currency (the value of which is inextricably linked to the for-real money tied to the central banks it’s supposed to replace) and bunk wellness cures repackaged and sold with Hollywood star power, there’s at least something tangible about 3D printers and the products they create.
