    This is one Confusing Medical Program

    Michigan legalized medical cannabis consumption via a voter referendum in 2008, but you’d be hard pressed to know it by looking at what the state has done recently.

        The legal cannabis market in Maine may be getting stifled, thanks to a proposed law limiting the number of plants allowed in a home-grow operation.

          The Referendum and the Compromise

          Last November, Massachusetts voters approved a measure that legalized recreational cannabis use, specified certain aspects of regulating the resulting industry, and set a timeline for rolling out legal sales. This is all pretty standard fare, but as the deadline fast approaches, the state’s legislature has been divided on certain aspects of the plan, that many […]

            Ohio Universities Reluctant to do Testing

              Are You Vulnerable to a Racketeering Charge?

              A recent ruling by the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has some cannabis business owners understandably concerned that they may face lawsuits from their neighbors.

                Robbed by the Police

                The owner of a medical cannabis business has reason to rejoice, now that a judge has ruled that the money seized in a raid of his company must be returned. Superior Court Judge Tamila E Ipema recently issued an order, requiring District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis to return more than $100,000 to San Diego business owner […]

                  Protecting Growers from Crackdown

                  In the uncertain legal climate around cannabis law, the state of Colorado is looking to protect its cannabis industry from legal intervention. The state senate recently passed a bill to allow cannabusinesses which work with recreational cannabis to reclassify as medical cannabis businesses should a federal crackdown occur. There is no guarantee that a reclassification […]

                    Why We Can’t Figure Cannabis Out.

                    American medical science has done some pretty incredible things over the years. Our understanding of the human body has arguably advanced more in the past hundred years than in all of previous human history. So why is it so hard for the medical community to pin down the effects of cannabis on the body when […]

                      Who Do They Represent?

                      In November, the voters of Arkansas passed a referendum legalizing medical cannabis state-wide, but a bevy of recent bills seem to run a bit counter to that agenda. The people of Arkansas are comfortable with the idea of medical cannabis, but it seems that legislators are not. A number of the 12 bills that Governor […]
