Medical Marijuana Dispensary Plan in the South Bronx Stirs Anxiety and Hope

The Hunts Point neighborhood in the South Bronx has struggled to clean up its act for years. Prostitution is still a problem, but it is far less prevalent, residents say, than it once was.
A couple of years ago, community leaders and residents helped derail the opening of a strip club. The neighborhood was once home to several strip clubs and now it has none.
So, now, news that the building that was going to house the club will instead open as another kind of business is stirring anxiety in the neighborhood. That is because the building is slated to be the site of one of ....

Wyoming weed: Push for medical pot has state scrutinizing legalization
Wyomings anti-pot governor has a warning for a task force hes named to study the effects of legal marijuana: It CAN happen here.
Wyoming cant afford to ignore the problems other states legal marijuana has caused, nor the ills yet to manifest should legalization happen in the Cowboy State, Gov. Matt Mead told his new Marijuana Impact Assessment Council on Wednesday.
Marijuana trafficking from legalization states has facilitated trafficking of other drugs, Mead told the council at its inaugural meeting.
Once you can do that with marijuana, you can also do it with methamphe....

The World Famous Cannabis Caf held a packed house Friday at their reopening in a small storefront on S.E. Foster Road in Portland.
The marijuana social club, which closed last year after serving medical marijuana patients in a basement club on Southeast 82nd Avenue, reopened to a large and steady crowd of marijuana consumers, who each paid $10 at the door and brought their own supply of flower, shatter and other cannabis products.
There was a large bong made of ice, which several patrons inserted their bowls into and consumed from. Smoke and live music filled the air.

Entrepreneurs, physicians and well-heeled investors are among those authorized by New York health officials to grow and dispense medical marijuana, the latest sign that the industry has come a long way from its humble beginnings 20 years ago.
``You can`t ignore that this is a billion-dollar industry,`` said Marc Ross, a New York City attorney who has studied the emergence of medical marijuana. ``The big businesses are sitting on the sidelines now because they can`t come out of the closet - not just yet anyway.``
Of the five companies selected Friday that will grow and dis....

Tougher Marijuana Regulations Could Be Coming to a State Near You
Forgive the pun, but marijuana has been growing like a weed within the United States.
In what seemed like a long shot to flourish even a decade ago, the federally illegal drug has been expanding at a lightning-quick pace across the country. As it currently stands, nearly two dozen states have legalized marijuana to be sold for medical purposes as well as Washington D.C., while four states -- Oregon, Washington, Colorado, and Alaska -- along with Washington D.C. have legalized the drug for recreational adult use.
The benefits of marijuana and its prospects for legalization....

Since January 2014, the division has conducted about 130 underage compliance checks statewide, resulting in a total of nine violations, MED spokesman Tommy Moore said.
In the 19 months since recreational marijuana has been legal in Colorado, recreational shops for t....

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is attracting attention to his struggling presidential campaign by making it clear he doesn`t want to recognize state laws legalizing recreational marijuana.
In town hall meetings in New Hampshire and an appearance on Fox News this week, Christie said that if elected, he intends to overturn state marijuana legalization laws, which have been passed in Oregon, Washington, Colorado and Alaska.
``If you`re getting high in Colorado today, enjoy it until January of 2017,`` Christie told an audience in Newport, N.H., on Tuesday, ``because I will en....

It smells good in there, said Dana Metz, 64, a retired General Motors worker who said he suffers from back pain, insomnia and anxiety....

Mirroring a national trend toward an acceptance of marijuana, the New York State Department of Health announced the names of five organizations on Friday that will be allowed to sell the drug for medical use in the state.

The marijuana outlets were authorized by the Compassionate Care Act that was signed ....
