420 games los angelesCreated to destigmatize cannabis and the people who use it, The 420 Games athletic event has experienced great success in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park for the past two years. This March, The 420 Games will debut in Los Angeles, the first leg of a four-state, six-city tour. Participants are “Going the Extra Mile for Cannabis” in this 4.20 mile race that is longer than a typical 5k.   The course takes runners from the Santa Monica Pier to Venice Beach and finishes back at the pier.  Tickets can be purchased at 420Games.org

In the last 18 months, The 420 Games has acquired nearly 60,000 Facebook fans and features an event series that continues to expand. Recently featured in Newsweek magazine, The 420 Games has announced multiple events in California, Colorado, Seattle and Oregon. The event series will feature marathons, mountain bike races, and stand-up paddleboard competitions, amongst other contests.  Future locales include San Francisco, Boulder, Denver, Portland and Seattle.

“Our attendance has doubled from the first event to the second, we expect thousands of people to come run or walk for cannabis respect on March 26th in LA. There is a passion and vibe of camaraderie at these events that is very inspiring to see.” -  Jim McAlpine, event organizer and founder of SnowBomb

Puerto Rico Governor Calls for Legalizing Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, March, 1st 2016 by THCFinder

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) -- Puerto Rico's governor has called for the legalization of marijuana during his last public address as leader of the U.S. territory.

Alejandro Garcia Padilla said Monday that taking such action would lower crime and target hypocrisy. He said legislators should at a minimum approve a bill filed in 2013 that would decriminalize marijuana. Puerto Rico's Health Department recently adopted a regulation allowing the cultivation, manufacturing and distribution of medical marijuana.

Garcia spoke for about an hour and addressed other issues, including the island's deepening economic crisis. He stressed the government's $69 billion public debt needs restructuring and said key decisions will be made in the coming months that will decide Puerto Rico's future.

Garcia is not seeking re-election as the island prepares to hold general elections in November.

What Are The Best Marijuana Industry Investment Opportunities Right Now?

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, February, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

marijuana money cashEarlier today I posed a question on my Facebook page – “What do you think are the best investment areas in the cannabis industry right now?” I made sure to state ahead of time that I wasn’t talking about any particular companies, because ‘invest in this company’ blah blah blah, it gets old. I was talking about areas or sectors of the marijuana industry that present good investment opportunities. To be very clear, I am in NO WAY an investor in anything, other than retro arcade games and consumable cannabis, and even then only on a personal level (up to 8 ounces legally in Oregon!). So take my opinion for what you will.

It’s no secret that investor dollars are flooding into the marijuana industry at an ever growing pace, and there’s no end in sight. The marijuana industry is exciting and full of potential, so it’s understandable why everyone wants in. There are a lot of really, really crapping investments being made out there. Again, what do I know since I don’t have anywhere near the dollar amounts that I read about being reported in investment articles, but I know a lot about cannabis and know people that know virtually everything about cannabis, and all of them have been scratching their heads at some of the things we talk about.

I think that a lot of people invest in the wrong things because they are new to cannabis, and think that just because something works in other industries that it will automatically work in the cannabis industry. That’s not the case from what I’ve seen in the over 6 years I’ve been helping run this blog. Like I always say, marijuana is different. The consumers are different, the rules are different, societies view of the industry is different than it is for any other industry. There are so many nuances that it’s impossible to compile a list of all of them, especially since they are almost all in flux and could be gone tomorrow. To say that the marijuana industry and world around it are evolving is a huge understatement.
