How Washington Could Become Even More Marijuana-Friendly

As a resident of Washington state, I've witnessed some big changes over the past decade -- but perhaps none bigger than the legalization of marijuana on a recreation basis.

Why legalize?
Approved by voters in the Nov. 2012 elections, Washington state joined Colorado as the first two recreation-legal states in the country. Since then, Oregon and Alaska, along with Washington D.C., have joined in legalizing marijuana for recreational, adult-use purposes.

The legalization of marijuana for recreational and medical purposes is significant for Americans for a number of reasons, but those reasons differ depending on whom you ask.

Texas Initiative would prohibit marijuana businesses

PALMER — Two draft ballot measures presently under review by the city of Palmer and Mat-Su Borough would ban most marijuana businesses, if voters approve.

The identically worded measures would exempt businesses dealing with industrial hemp, but would outlaw parlors, cafes, commercial grow operations for recreational uses, or any other forms of business trading in the drug, at least as they appeared in copies provided by the respective municipal clerks.

The primary sponsor of the Palmer initiative, Donna Irsik, said Friday the city measure had been rejected by the city clerk and would need to be reworded. Irsik said she was waiting to see the precise nature of the changes required before commenting in detail. The borough-level initiative is still under legal review.

Leading Mexican Journalist Explains Why Everything You're Hearing About The Drug War Is Wrong

As one of Mexico’s leading investigative journalists, Anabel Hernández has dedicated the past decade to investigating her country’s drug war -- one of the most dangerous projects a reporter could ask for.

Marijuana dispensary hopes to open by end of year

As Deerfield gets closer to having a medical marijuana dispensary at 151 Pfingsten Road, the biggest certainty may be a lot of uncertainty about a very new and highly regulated business.

Under regulations created by the Illinois General Assembly, all the marijuana sold must be grown and packaged by licensed Illinois growers, it cannot be used at the facility or going to and from the dispensary, and dispensary personnel may not handle the product itself, only the packages.

"This is highly, highly regulated by four different state departments," said Greenhouse Group CEO Mitch Kahn, a Deerfield resident. "Everything we do is regulated by one agency or another."

Bottom Feeders Just Can’t Get Any Respect

Having thick skin is a necessary asset when investing in the cannabis sector. Pity the over-the-counter small investor cautiously entering the cannabis sector, either the long-time advocate or someone who knows the product well from a personal standpoint.

It is bad enough that they have to endure the stigma of the stereotypical stoner, still-questionable legality or ignorance-induced bias from observers, they also have to endure the derision of the investing world, especially long-term investors, who consider penny stocks nothing more than day-trading fodder for gamblers. Not to mention the sector also attracts opportunists who exploit its less-restrictive financial reporting requirements, juggle their books or set up outright scams.
