 Ten Ways Marijuana Testing Can Go Wrong


Johnny Green

Anthony Martinelli
Before TheJointBlog.com launched as a daily cannabis news site in January, 2013, I served as the Campaign Manager for then-Washington State Representative Dave Upthegrove, whos now on the King County Council. I also worked for his political action committee, which purpose is to help elect progressive candidates.

I believe he generally has strong values, and some great policy positions. But after the signing ....

Gov. Jay Inslee signed medical-marijuana regulations Friday, perhaps the most significant lawmaking in the Legislatures 103 days of work.

A proposal under consideration would direct proceeds from pot taxes to an array of state programs and share a sliver with cities and counties that have licensed sellers. But local governments willing to forgo the money would be under no obligation t....

Coincidentally or not, there was a lot of it this week. So let`s just begin by ``getting into the weeds`` of politics, as it were the ponies come along later, never fear. Of course, there were stories appearing on or around 4/20, as usual. Bill Maher wants to make the date a national holiday you can sign his petition; so far it`s got over 31,000 signatures.

Or in essence, the Denver chamber proud of playing a pivotal role in bringing the railroad to town in the late 1890s and Denver International Airport to the area in 1995 doesn`t wish to be confused wit....

 Weakened Medical Marijuana Bill Advances in Pennsylvania Senate


Scott Gacek
