LAS VEGAS -- The owner of what's being called a marijuana delivery service business was arrested Wednesday night, Metro Police said.

The SCORE Taskforce found dozens of guns, marijuana and packaging in 36-year-old Christopher McDermott's home located in the 8300 block of Mount Logan Ct.

The packaging was similar to what was found earlier during a raid at the Super Budz business located in the 1900 block of Highland Avenue.

2015 Canadian Medical Marijuana Outlook: Foggy With Sunny Patches

The Canadian Medical Marijuana experience for investors has for the most part been a tremendous letdown thus far. When Tweed Marijuana Inc. (TSX.V:TWD) lost 10 percent on its first day open of $3.32, and as of Friday last week accumulated a total YTD loss of 41 percent, the writing was on the wall.

Of course, that does not apply to insiders and early stage investors. Tweed founders paid as little as $0.15 a share, and their instant wealth came at the direct expense of retail investors.

But that is the game, and anybody who cries about it has no business investing in it.

She's 85. She's a Texas Republican. And she's a marijuana activist

WASHINGTON—Ann Lee, a Republican precinct chairman in southwest Houston, had her first marijuana epiphany around her 60th birthday.

A workplace fall paralyzed her son Richard from the waist down. When he began to use marijuana to treat his pain, she decided her lifelong opposition to the drug was wrong.

Her second epiphany came after her 80th birthday. NORML, the marijuana advocacy group, invited her to be part of a five-person panel discussion at a conference in 2012. “As we all talked,” she says, “we realized that three of us were Republicans!”

Consistency Key When Testing Edibles

In Oregon, edible labels seem to say one thing, while potency testing seems to say another. As the state’s marijuana testing industry suffers from a lack of regulation, edible packaging may not always reveal the truth about how much THC is contained within a marijuana-infused treat.

Canada: Court ruling could send odor producing private grow-ops up in smoke

There were days when David Kralik would arrive at his landscaping and snow-removal business in Mississauga and stay just a few minutes – the heady odour of marijuana from the grow-op next door was too powerful.

“You open the door to come in, go into my office, and I just sit down, fire up the computer and – ” He lets out an expletive. “And you just leave. It’s that bad.”

Mr. Kralik couldn’t call the police to complain about the grow-op, or another in the same building, because they’re both legal and under federal jurisdiction.

Hemp-oil sales begin, despite medical-marijuana ban

Boris Shcharansky stresses that he's no outlaw.

The Urbandale businessman is selling what he calls hemp oil — made from a plant that is closely related to marijuana. He knows his customers are using the oil to treat chronic ailments. But he swears he's not peddling medical marijuana before Iowa lawmakers decide whether to legalize such sales.

"I'm not hiding in the shadows with this," he said. "I'm totally out in the open."

A local government in Wash. state tries to corner the marijuana market

NORTH BONNEVILLE, Wash. — Deep in the Columbia River Gorge, a short drive from the Bridge of the Gods, the nation’s only government-run marijuana shop was running low on weed.

The store had been open for just a few days. Inside, manager Robyn Legun was frantically trying to restock. Outside, five customers stood waiting for the doors to open. Someone cracked a joke about this being a typical government operation, always running late.
