To the Bitter End: The 9 States Where Marijuana Will Be Legalized Last

We know the end is coming, but pot prohibition is going to have to be undone state by state. Here are the ones least likely to jump on the bandwagon.

Marijuana prohibition in the US is dying, but it isn't going to vanish in one fell swoop. Even if Congress were to repeal federal pot prohibition, state laws criminalizing the plant and its users would still be in effect—at least in some states.

And it's probably a pretty safe bet that Congress isn’t going to act until a good number of states, maybe more than half, have already legalized it. That process is already underway and is likely to gather real momentum by the time election day 2016 is over.

The marijuana industry’s newest customers are sick and elderly dogs

A day before a scheduled vet appointment to euthanize her dog, Wendy Mansfield decided to try one last resort to alleviate the chronic pain of her 15-year-old labrador mix: cookies from a marijuana dispensary made specifically for ailing dogs.

Kali, a mild-mannered 80-pound rescue, was never much of a complainer. But she often licked her paws—an obvious sign of pain, according to her vet—which was typically accompanied by bouts of coughing because of the shedding fur that got in her throat. One cookie and 20 minutes later, the licking suddenly stopped.

Medical marijuana works well for celebrity chef Kerry Simon

Medical marijuana is working so well for celebrity chef Kerry Simon that weed “rewound time about four to six months back to where he was,” according to an upcoming magazine article.

The revelation will be detailed in the inaugural issue of the medical marijuana magazine, Elevate Nevada.

Simon isn’t cured of multiple system atrophy, a nerve degeneration that put Simon in a wheelchair and worse.

But a concentrated form of cannabis called Phoenix Tears is doing what other medicines aren’t, which is “shocking” the MSA community. Here are the money quotes in the story, as written by Beth Schwartz, formerly of the Review-Journal’s sister publication Luxury Las Vegas magazine.

High Times editor: ‘Colorado cannabis industry is an economic miracle’

High Times magazine’s New York-rooted editor-in-chief Dan Skye has spent plenty of time in Colorado researching and photographing the state’s medical and recreational systems, but his current, pre-Cannabis Cup trip to the state has been uncommonly eye-opening.

“The Colorado cannabis industry is an economic miracle,” Skye said Monday from a stop in Pueblo, where he’s meeting cannabis business owners and reporting on the state’s first-of-its-kind legalization. “Everyone in the United States is following Colorado’s lead.”

Will Big Tobacco become Big Marijuana?

DENVER — While federal law makes their entire industry illegal, many marijuana store owners, growers and retailers fear something completely different: Big Tobacco.

Today, most legal recreational marijuana operations are small, limited to a single state and barred from ever getting large by regulators who want to keep a close eye on the fast-growing industry. But those small operators struggle to get bank loans for expansion, often produce an inconsistent product and sometimes have no idea how to balance supply and demand for their crops.

Which States Will Legalize Marijuana This Year And Next?

At the beginning of 2014, when Colorado became the first state to allow the sale of marijuana for recreational use, the whole world was watching. “It was insane,” says Toni Fox, owner of Denver’s 3D Cannabis Center, where the first sale happened. “On January 1, there were close to 200 reporters here. Controlled chaos. It was just packed with reporters.”

But the more successful Colorado’s model is and the more imitation it inspires, the less attention it will get. “Colorado is not going to be the top dog for much longer,” says Kayvan Khalatbari, co-owner of the Denver Relief dispensary. “I think it’s only a matter of time before Colorado really gets overlooked.”

Growing Like a Weed: DigiPath is Building a Cannabis Conglomerate

The cannabis industry is rapidly growing and there are no signs that it’s slowing down anytime soon. According to ArcView Research, the market for legal cannabis is the fastest-growing industry in the United States, growing to $2.7 billion in 2014.

Many publicly traded companies have sought to capitalize on this growth by growing medical cannabis, pursuing clinical trials with cannabinoids, developing vaporizers and other accessories, or providing generic consulting services to the space. While many of these companies are involved in the industry, no clear market leaders have yet to emerge as conglomerates.
