In these states, past marijuana crimes can go away

Some states have made it possible for people to hide past convictions for possession, cultivation and manufacture of marijuana.

When Californians voted to legalize marijuana last year, they also voted to let people petition courts to reduce or hide convictions for past marijuana crimes. State residents can now petition courts to change some felonies to misdemeanors, change some misdemeanors to infractions, and wipe away convictions for possessing or growing small amounts of the drug.

“We call it reparative justice: repairing the harms caused by the war on drugs,” says Eunisses Hernandez of the Drug Policy Alliance, a nonprofit advocacy group that helped write the California ballot initiative.

Which state makes more tax revenue from cannabis cash cow, Washington or Oregon?

The budding marijuana industry has brought in tens of millions in tax dollars for Washington and Oregon, but one state seems to be making more cash from their cannabis sales.

Washington voters legalized recreational marijuana in 2012, and Oregon followed suit two years later. The financial success in both states is clear, nearly doubling initial revenue projections.

“Right now, Oregon is selling about $40 million a month in recreational marijuana. That's translating into, you know, $7-8 million a month in tax revenue for the state,” said Josh Lehner of the Oregon Office of Economic Analysis.

Both states spend millions worth of that money on drug abuse treatment programs and anti-drug abuse ad campaigns.

Even if you’re at work and not currently high, there’s a good chance you’re going to have a laugh while watching this new commercial from Briteside, an Oregon-based marijuana delivery service.

Whether you’re a stressed mom or a dad in search of his groove, the ad should hit a nerve. And if you’re neither of those things, than just appreciate Briteside’s parody of the countless pharmaceutical ads which you’ve seen on television.

“Briteside offers an extensive menu of strains and products to meet your needs,” the voiceover says. “Choose the experience you want, and we’ll send you the dankest herb. The real sticky icky. … If you like what we send you, keep the whole jar. We’ll even include some nugs for you to blaze.”

Deadline approaches in Oregon as the fight for good cannabis laws continues

Ask any patient or medical cannabis grower in Oregon, and they will agree – navigating the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) is a bugaboo. Now, the governing body over OMMP, Oregon Health Authority (OHA), has notified all medical growers in the state of impending changes in compliance and reporting, including increased fees (and migraines).

New Research says cannabis Is extremely effective against depression and PTSD

Marijuana and the United States government have had a rocky relationship for the last 70 or so years, but now, it’s becoming clear that cannabis can actually help the very people the government has damaged through endless warfare.

As many as 20% of Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans return home with Post-traumatic stress disorder, a debilitating disorder that makes even the most mundane daily tasks nearly impossible. Often, antidepressants are prescribed, as well as some other heavy medications.

Legalize (what people are doing with) marijuana!

There isn’t a week that goes by where I’m not reading some article, blog or comment from someone in the cannabis community who hates how the process of legalizing marijuana is proceeding.

“It’s destroyed medical marijuana!”

“It’s wiping out the mom-and-pops!”

“It’s all a bunch of white guys getting rich!”

Has Oregon become a corporate cannabis resume building state?

I have lived in Oregon my entire life, which is a fact that I am extremely proud of. I am a fourth generation Oregonian, and I am always quick to point that out to people. On top of that, I am also a third generation member of Oregon’s cannabis community. My grandfather served prison time for cannabis, and my dad has been convicted of no less than 3 cannabis-only felonies (all of them in Oregon).
