These industries are most likely to produce marijuana users

There isn't really any demographic or characteristic that defines marijuana users. People of all races, genders and socioeconomic backgrounds all use cannabis. But apparently your profession may somewhat contribute to the likelihood that you're a stoner, writes Joseph Misulonas.

Report identifies $6.6 million price tag for legalizing marijuana in ND, but tax revenue unknown

Legalizing recreational marijuana in North Dakota will cost state agencies and local governments more than $6.6 million over the next few years, according to estimates lawmakers received Wednesday afternoon, Sept. 12.

But some other costs, as well as potential tax revenue, remain unknown, the report said.

The measure will ask voters in November to legalize “non-violent marijuana related activity” for people over 21, except for selling to minors. It would also create a process for expunging records of those previously convicted of a crime that’s legalized by the measure.

Ohio medical marijuana: Everything you need to know about the state program

We’ve collected some of the most frequent questions and our most informative coverage of the issue below.

How did Ohio arrive with medical marijuana?

Polling in 2015 showed up to 90 percent of Ohioans were willing to support legalizing medical use of marijuana. But a measure put before voters that November also included provisions for home growing and recreational use of pot, factors that led to a nearly 2-1 defeat at the ballot box.

How a Michigan-made marijuana testing company went national

There have been a lot of people with dreams of making it big in the marijuana business. A few years ago investors were flooding into lawyers' offices seeking partnerships with locals, and the ideal was to figure out what worked so you could franchise it across the state — and ultimately across the nation.

That may still be how it works out, but it's been a bumpy ride up till now with Michigan's recalcitrant state government.

Iron Laboratories, LLC, a cannabis testing facility based in Walled Lake, was started by a group with a dream and a plan to expand into a national business. They got the good news that they were among the first businesses to be granted licenses by the state of Michigan. That's a huge step for Iron Labs.

Marijuana stinks. Here’s what California can do about it.

Even the most ardent marijuana lovers can’t deny it: The plant, at least to some noses, stinks.

Marijuana odors have triggered lawsuits against cannabis companies. They’ve also led residents to try to block commercial operations from coming to California and the other eight states where recreational cannabis is legal and, increasingly, big business.

Odor has sparked some neighborhood friction, too, as marijuana smoke drifts from one apartment or yard to the next. There are products on the market that claim to test for smells, block all odors from wafting out of indoor operations, and even help control the stench of outdoor marijuana farms.

Advocacy group threatens Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission with Lawsuit

An advocacy group for cannabis growers in Massachusetts plans to sue the Cannabis Control Commission in order to push them to review the agreements between businesses and their host towns, an issue they believe has greatly contributed to the slow rollout of retail marijuana.

The president of the Massachusetts Grower Advocacy Council, Peter Bernard, said that group will speak with its attorney on Wednesday and will likely take the lawsuit to court.

“We just want them to review these going forward and strike down offending contractual clauses going backwards,” said Bernard.

Officials seek to overturn edible marijuana ruling

Attorneys for a Yavapai County resident are asking the Arizona Supreme Court to overturn a lower court decision which makes criminals out of medical marijuana patients who choose to use edibles and liquids rather than smoking the plant's dried flowers and leaves.

In new filings, the lawyers contend the state Court of Appeals got it wrong earlier this year when it concluded in a 2-1 ruling that a 2010 voter-approved law that legalized the medical use of marijuana does not cover products made from hashish and other extracts of the plant. The majority concluded that hashish, essentially the resin of the cannabis plant and the products made from the resin are legally not the same as the plant itself and its possession remains a crime, even for medical marijuana users..
