California Bill Would Ban Smoking Pot on Beaches
Tucked inside a piece of legislation aimed at preventing people from using cigarettes in parks and along beaches all across California is language that would also make it unlawful to smoke marijuana in these places, even if the consumption is done through the use of a vaporizer.
Legislative forces in the Golden State recently sent a bill to the desk of Governor Jerry Brown calling for a total prohibition on marijuana smoke, as part of its effort to clean up areas of recreation all over the state. If passed, the non-smoking rule would apply to hundreds of miles of beaches and nearly 300 state parks, according to the Los Angeles Times.
“This bill would reduce the serious health hazards posed by smoking—to people and wildlife—in our state parks and beaches,” said State Senator Steve Glazer, one of the sponsors of the bill. “It would reduce fire hazards and litter and the costs for those now borne by the public.”

Mango Haze (Hybrid)
Mango Haze is considered by most cannabis patients to be a great all-around medication, with parents like Northern Lights (25%), Skunk (25%) and Haze (50%). Aptly named, this plant gives off the pleasantly pungent aroma of freshly picked mangoes. One of the most favorable traits of the Mango Haze plant - at least by growers - is how incredibly mold and disease resistant it is. While it is shown to produce noticeably higher quality medication when grown indoors, it thrives fairly well in either growing environment. It is also completely covered in thousands of shiny tri-chromes during the end of maturation.
Legal Pot In Mexico: Everything You Need to Know
On June 19th, 2017, Mexico legalized medical marijuana, or more specifically, "pharmacological derivatives of cannabis" to be regulated and studied by the Ministry of Health. But, for now, Mexico's medical cannabis market will look much different than say, California's, which sells everything from cannabis flower to THC-infused massage oil. Currently, "cannabis derivatives" in Mexico, like oils and pills, must contain less than one percent THC. Although some activists are hopeful and working to change this conservative allotment, many believe that full cannabis legalization is what will help Mexico the most.
"This current law is so limited as to be practically useless. But we're headed in the right direction and the attitude is changing," says Laura Carlsen, political analyst and director of the Americas Program at the Center for International Policy in Mexico City. Here, what you need to know about Mexico's marijuana program, and where it might go from here.

Uruguay Sets Up Marijuana-Only Shops after Challenge by Banks
MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay (AP) — The government announced Wednesday that it is changing its retail system for legalized marijuana because banks were making it difficult for pharmacies to sell pot as had been planned.
The sale of marijuana by pharmacies has been hindered because banks are refusing to deal with companies linked to pot in order to follow international financial laws.
A government official, Juan Andres Roballo, said Uruguay will now set up shops to sell pot for cash. He said this will avoid the problems faced by pharmacies.
