How Silicon Valley is helping overturn marijuana convictions

Marijuana expungement is an often laborious, bureaucratic process, but algorithms have eased the process.

Following marijuana legalization, states and cites have emphasized correcting the records of those affected by the War on Drugs. An estimated 20 million people were arrested for a marijuana-related offense over the past 30 years. When individuals have cannabis convictions on their record, it limits their opportunity to acquire employment, access stable housing, and participate in their children’s school activities.


8 must-have cannabis products for tech-minded weed consumers

Let's face it, in one way or another, technological advancements have altered nearly every facet of our lives — and smoking weed is certainly no exception. In fact, as ongoing legalization efforts have birthed a rigorous and dynamic market, tech-savvy companies are developing innovative products that provide people with new ways to get stoned or seek therapeutic relief.

Where's the money in Marijuana software?

At the moment, the marijuana industry is still a cash-only business model. It’s illegal to possess and/or sell marijuana in most states, and some banks are still wary about investing in cannabis companies even in states where medical and recreational use is legal. This means that debit and credit cards cannot be used to purchase medicinal marijuana, and handling this much cash puts a lot of dispensaries and their customers at risk. 

So how are dispensaries rising up to meet this challenge?
