How To Brand, Market, And Sell Marijuana Without Breaking The Law

Earlier this year, Dixie Elixirs & Edibles, perhaps Colorado’s best-known cannabis brand, took its THC-infused drinks off the market. It had no choice.

That's because a couple of weeks later, on February 1, new packaging regulations for recreational marijuana edibles went into effect in the state and the screw top aluminum bottles were no longer compliant.

House Bill Would Force Feds To Respect State Marijuana Laws

Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) introduced the Respect State Marijuana Laws Act of 2015 (H.R. 1940), a measure that would require the federal government to respect states that have ended prohibitions on the plant.

Indiana Push to legalize hemp production dies in legislature

Efforts to help Indiana gain federal approval to grow and sell industrial hemp have died this legislative session, the bill's author said Wednesday.

"There's some disagreement about just how close it is to marijuana," said Rep. Don Lehe, R-Brookston. "We just need more clarification about the differences."

While the measure — which would have excluded industrial hemp from the definition of marijuana — drew no opposition in the House, it lost momentum in the Senate. Opponents expressed concerns about relaxing Indiana's marijuana laws — even though industrial hemp differs from medical or recreational marijuana plants in THC content and appearance.

  • It has extremely high concentrations of THC
  • South African teens blend it with heroin to produce potent cocktail

Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard - It's All Going to Pot

"It's All Going to Pot" from the collaborative album, Django and Jimmie by Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard. 

Lyrics: 
It's all going to pot
Whether we like it or not
As far as I can tell
The world's gone to hell
And we're sure gonna miss it a lot
All of the whiskey in Lynchburg, Tenn.
Just couldn't hit the spot
I've got $100 bill
You can keep them pills, friend
'Cause it's all going to pot.
