Will the NYPD really stop frivolous marijuana arrests?

The city of New York promised to wind down its decades-old war on marijuana Tuesday, with Mayor Bill De Blasio announcing a new policy limiting trips to a police station over cannabis possession.

“New Yorkers with no priors will receive a summons instead of an arrest for smoking marijuana publicly,” the mayor said. “We believe this will result in thousands of fewer arrests. In fact we think at least 10,000 fewer New Yorkers will be arrested under this policy.”

Canadians who've used pot can be forever barred from entering the United States

On Tuesday, the Canadian Senate voted to legalize the recreational use and sale of marijuana by adults. The House of Commons already passed the bill on Monday, which means Canada is poised to be the first industrialized nation with federally sanctioned pot shops. And while the potheads up north may see this as a reason to rejoice, it’s also a reason for them to be wary when traveling to the United States.

Inside one Arizona cannabis operation's mission to spread the culture

Before you see the cannabis, you smell it. Our pickup truck is rolling down a very dusty, very long driveway on the outskirts of Willcox, Arizona—a town that itself feels like the outskirts of anywhere—when the pungent scent floods the car. “I smell cannabis!” exclaims Sunday Goods CEO Randy Smith as we pull up to the "Pharm"—the company’s massive Dutch greenhouse and grow facility. The desert sun glints off of it; the mountains pose behind it; the lush cannabis plant fills it.

It is beautiful.

The 10 best marijuana dispensaries in Detroit

The history of marijuana decriminalization in Michigan is combative. As a Rust Belt state, we’re not the most progressive hood around, but we take what we got and make the best of it. Michigan voters first agreed to a medicinal marijuana ballot proposal in 2008. What a great November that was. Seriously.

The first Massachusetts marijuana business license could go to this company

Sira Naturals, Inc. could get the first marijuana business license in Massachusetts.

The five-member Cannabis Control Commission, the agency charged with overseeing the state's legal marijuana industry, is scheduled to vote Thursday on whether to give the company a tier 3 cultivation license.

Massachusetts voters broadly legalized recreational marijuana use for adults 21 and over through a ballot question in November 2016. Medical marijuana was approved by voters in 2012.

A tier 3 cultivation license means they can grow between 10,001 and 20,000 square feet of marijuana. A licensed cultivator can cultivate, process and package marijuana, and transfer and deliver marijuana products to marijuana establishments, but not to consumers.

Marijuana discounts, possible shortage with new rules coming

A big shake-up is coming in the marijuana business, and that means big discounts on weed here in the Bay Area. But it also might soon lead to a shortfall in product availability.

Customers are already seeing discounts of 30-50 percent on some marijuana items in the Bay Area, and that's likely to last a little while because dispensaries have to make room for newly regulated product.

Starting July 1, all medical and recreational cannabis must adhere to new state guidelines for testing and packaging. So dispensaries like Caliva in San Jose will have to sell all of their existing inventory to make room for newly labeled product.

"There is a lot of discounts that'll be out there over the next two weeks," said Larry Thacker, head of operations at Caliva.
