Everyone Wants A Marijuana Breathalyzer But No One Knows If That's Possible

Right now it’s impossible to accurately enforce stoned driving laws, because there is no roadside test that can determine whether a driver is actually high.

Which is why many of the people checking out the Cannabix Technologies booth at the Marijuana Investor Summit in Denver last month were thrilled. Here, finally, in a hotel ballroom littered with men in suits hawking useless apps and grow-house accessories, was a product with real potential: a marijuana breathalyzer.

Daphne Bramham: Easier to buy a joint in Vancouver than a loaf of bread

City’s plan to regulate marijuana shops is a farce

My local dry cleaner is gone, replaced by one of the more than half a dozen “medical marijuana dispensaries” within a 10-minute walk from my home.

In another neighbourhood, a friend says it’s easier to get a joint than buy a loaf of bread or a litre of milk.

At last count, Vancouver had 84 cannabis stores. There’s one block in Granville Street’s entertainment district has two.

There are so many pot shops along many of the main streets that it’s almost impossible to believe that cannabis is illegal in Canada.

Their signboards are set out on sidewalks. Their posters are on utility poles. Some run ads in weekly newspapers.

Proposal would ease Pierce Co. marijuana restrictions

PIERCE CO - A new proposal that's in Pierce County Committee would lessen the rules in the county dealing with marijuana production, processing and retail sales.

The ordinance, sponsored by council members Derek Young, Connie Ladenburg, and Rick Talbert, would remove federal government authorization as a condition of approval for a marijuana-licensed business. It would also remove a requirement that limits marijuana retail sales to detached buildings.

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. Her 2010 book Los señores del narco, translated into English as Narcoland, detailed the extensive government corruption that allowed Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán and his Sinaloa cartel to become one of the most powerful criminal enterprises in the world.

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."

This week, members of the Department of Public Health's Environmental Health Enforcement Team made their way to California to clear the smoke on cannabis testing.

DPHSS director James Gillan said the team is expected to return to Guam next week with a clearer understanding of marijuana strengths and dosages.
