Medical Marijuana Implodes in Florida—Whose Fault Is It?
This year, Florida state lawmakers had a clear mandate: Figure out how to give the state’s voters their constitutionally mandated weed, and do it by May 5.
On the same day they helped hand Donald Trump a not-so-historic Electoral College victory, Florida voters told their legislature—loudly, by an overwhelming 72 percent to 28 percent margin—that they wanted legal medical marijuana.
But the problem with Amendment 2 was that it left the job only partly done—it only modified the state constitution to say seriously ill Floridians could have medical cannabis. It left the how—how many dispensaries, how many growers, how is this going to work and how can I alleviate my AIDS or cancer-related suffering, please—to state lawmakers.
The Bubble Gum originated in Indiana in the 1970s. After making the rounds in the States, the genetics were taken to Holland during the 1990s, where a stable interbred variety was developed. Named Bubble Gum from the start, this variety quickly acquired a reputation for its sweetness, so much that the name "Bubble Gum" has been widely borrowed for all sorts of seeds and weed. The winner of many accolades, Bubble Gum has placed repeatedly in the High Times Cannabis Cup: 3rd place in 1994 for best coffeeshop product, 2nd place for best bioproduct and 2nd for the overall Cannabis Cup in 1995, and 2nd place again in 1999 for the overall Cannabis Cup.
Pot with your chardonnay? Philly mayor suggests marijuana at liquor stores
A number of Pennsylvania officials support decriminalizing or even legalizing recreational marijuana but Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney has a bold idea: selling it at state-run liquor stores.
"The hardest place to get served underage in Philadelphia when I was growing up was a Pennsylvania state liquor store," Kenney told WHYY, in a recent interview.
Kenney, a Democrat, has long been a supporter of legalizing marijuana. This proposal, he said, would benefit the city and the state.

New Jersey’s Next Governor Will Almost Certainly Legalize Marijuana
With support for legalization at 60 percent nationwide, there are many politicians less popular than marijuana.
Seeing as how he’s tied for the lowest approval rating in state history—18 percent; Nixon scored nearly twice as high and this after Watergate—scandal-ridden New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is only the most prominent example. (As it happens, the last time fewer than 20 percent of Americans thought weed was good and cool was when Richard Nixon was plotting against it.)
Barring an indictment, Christie’s term (and, almost certainly, his political career) will end in January 2018. Much of his time as a lame-duck with *some* clout in Washington—why else would respectable newspapers bother to publish speculation about his chance to succeed James Comey as FBI director?—should be occupied by running Trump’s national task force on ending the opiate crisis, his plum appointment for being the first Republican presidential candidate to abandon principles in favor of naked ambition and back Trump.
