This US marijuana stock is arguably the best on the market -- and it's dirt cheap

What's the best U.S. marijuana stock on the market right now?

Including only the U.S. in the question excludes several of the top candidates, such as U.K.-based GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: GWPH) and the leading Canadian medical-marijuana suppliers. The word "best" is subjective, of course, but in my view rules out the many penny stocks trading over the counter. And while Cara Therapeutics is very promising, that promise stems primarily from products that have nothing to do with the cannabis plant, so I'm hesitant to crown it as the best U.S. marijuana stock.

Cannabis use does not affect teenager's IQ, new research reveals.

Cannabis use does not affect teenager's IQ, new research reveals.

Taking the drug between the ages of 12 and 18 does not cause adolescent's intelligence to decline, a study found.

Yet, children with low IQs are more likely to use cannabis as teenagers, the research adds.

Drug researcher Ian Hamilton from York University told MailOnline: 'This research murders an age-old myth about cannabis.'

Previous studies have revealed cannabis use affects teenager's educational achievements, as well as increasing their risk of depression and psychosis.

Residents in these 3 states are the likeliest to vote on legalizing recreational marijuana in 2018

Few industries, if any, are growing as quickly as legal marijuana. According to cannabis research firm ArcView, the North American legal-weed industry generated $6.9 billion in sales in 2016, which still pales in comparison with the $46.4 billion in sales estimated on the black market. However, by 2021 it's believed that the legal North American pot market will have vaulted in value to $21.6 billion, representing a compound annual growth rate of 26%.

Arizona: Cannabis Operations in the Pipeline in Port Hueneme

A manufacturer of edibles and a cooperative are looking to open Port Hueneme’s first medical marijuana operations.

YiLo, which has marijuana operations in Arizona, has applied to make its cannabis-infused food and drink products at what is currently a public works facility for the city.

In addition, Paul Watson hopes to open the Hueneme Patient Consumer Coop in the Moll Plaza II building off Channel Islands Boulevard.

Both have submitted paperwork to Port Hueneme, which last month began accepting applications for those interested in cultivating, manufacturing, processing, storing, testing, transporting or selling cannabis products.

Will John McCain Turn To Medical Marijuana?

Despite your opinion on John McCain’s policies, no one can deny he is an American hero and a dedicated public servant. He is one of the few politicians left that serves with conviction (I still remember his town hall where he quickly and genuinely shot down a woman who was charging Obama with being a Muslim). His selfless actions while a prisoner of war further speak to his mental fortitude and consideration for others.

His recent diagnosis is a true tragedy of glioblastoma, a malignant brain cancer, is a tragedy for his family, his state of Arizona, and the nation. Glioblastoma is often quickly lethal.

Arizona pot tourists heading to Las Vegas as Nevada legalizes marijuana

Now that Las Vegas has officially started selling recreational marijuana as of Saturday, pot tourists should learn the rules before they get high, legal experts say.

In Nevada, gambling, drinking, and even some prostitution is allowed. Marijuana may fit right in.

"It's always crazy, so it's going to be fine, I guess," said Ilze Mondragon who was flying to Las Vegas for her birthday.

It's estimated two thirds of recreational marijuana users in Las Vegas will be tourists, so what do locals think?

"There are still a lot of legal ramifications," Las Vegas resident Spencer Cranney said.

You can't use marijuana in hotels, on the Strip, in public, or in restaurants.

ADHS: More women using medical marijuana to treat pain

The number of women using medical marijuana to treat their pain is up drastically over the past five years, according to the Arizona Department of Health Services.

The report says 25 percent of women in 2012 used medical marijuana compared to more than 37 percent as of May of this year.

Wendy Cardona, a stay at home mom of two is looking to treat her chronic pain.

"With the pain that I have, it's hard for me to play with them. I have to pause on them which they don't understand," Cardona said.

She's tried other medications, both over the counter and prescription, but so far nothing has helped. That's why she decided to try medical marijuana.
