Meet the Pioneers of the Olympic Weed Scene

As long as athletes don’t show up stoned at competition, it’s all good, right?

This year’s Olympic games has been more stressful than most amid  athletes dropping out over concerns of Zika virus and Russia’s doping scandal that has banned some of their competitors.


The Green Olympic Rings At The Rio Opening Ceremony Were HIGHLY Discussed

The Olympics opening ceremony in Rio de Janeiro has been many things: An introduction to Brazilian culture; a parade of many, many nations; and a collection of entertaining moments. Naturally, Twitter users have been on the case all Friday night long, not letting the smallest details go unnoticed. There was a moment when the tops of those silver, cheese grater-looking boxes exploded to reveal green plants that formed the Olympic rings. Now, I don't know about you, but to me and many viewers on Twitter, those green Olympic rings looked like weed.


Olympic Athletes Get Some Leniency On Testing For Marijuana

The Rio Olympics, which is set to kick off this Friday, has already been marred by doping scandals. Russian athletes (among many others) have been accused of systemic doping of athletes to improve performance.

One would think that these huge developments would lead to heavy testing of Olympic athletes this year. However, The World Anti-Doping Agency, which is in charge of regulating drug tests for all Olympic sports worldwide, has reportedly cared very little about athletes use of marijuana outside the window of the Olympic games.

Canada: Canopy Growth Moving Into Brazil's Pot Market

Canopy Growth Corp., the largest of Canada's publicly traded marijuana companies, is preparing to export its expertise through a new Brazilian partnership.

Canopy's Bedrocan subsidiary and its Brazilian partners have created a new company to import proprietary varieties of cannabis into Brazil — a country with a population of 200 million.

Initially, Bedrocan Brazil will import cannabis products into Brazil from Canada or the Netherlands.

Eventually, the company will establish domestic cultivation facilities in Brazil using Bedrocan's genetic material and cultivation technology.

The Canadian company will also partner with Sao Paulo-based Entourage Phytolab SA to develop medical cannabis products for the Brazilian and international markets.


Another Reason Cannabis is a Socially Responsible Investment

The Evils of Capitalism Will Make You Wealthy.

The title of the article was, “The Undeniable Evils of Capitalism.”

The guy who wrote it was clearly a fool.

If there’s one thing that really fires me up, it’s some moral do-gooder who seeks to place the burden of blame for the world’s problems on what is the greatest force for good in the world: capitalism.

The truth is, I actually take offense to the suggestion that those who seek to utilize capitalism as a mechanism to wealth and prosperity are somehow evil. Especially when you consider that capitalism is also the greatest catalyst for positive change in our world today.

No Apologies
