Are California MMJ Dispensaries Already Selling Recreational Marijuana?
California’s newfound cannabis trade is not supposed to be up and running until sometime around 2018, but allegedly, that hasn’t prevented some dispensaries from selling recreational reefer in the same manner as they have been slinging the “medical” stuff for the past two decades.
A recent report from the California Weed Blog indicates that ever since the voters approved Proposition 64, an initiative that fully legalized marijuana throughout the state, there has been at least three medical marijuana dispensaries that have jettisoned the concept of a patient needing a doctor’s recommendation and are now selling weed to every adult 21 and over who comes in looking to get stoned.
HIGH TIMES, however, could not confirm all of the report—and found some discrepancies, too.
Grapefruit is a high-yielding sativa with fast flowering times. A sweet taste and a nice tropical high. The guys from DNA Genetics are Southern California natives who migrated to realize their calling as breeders in the relative weed freedom of Amsterdam. But they didn't leave all that great Cali genetics behind. California Grapefruit combines three of the Golden State's favorite indicas: Northern Lights, Skunk #1 and Afghani.
President Obama’s Drug War Commutations Surpass 1,000
Continuing with his campaign of clemency for federal drug offenders who were imprisoned under outdated sentencing laws, last week President Barack Obama commuted the sentences of 79 more inmates, bringing the total commutations throughout his two terms to to more than 1,000.
This number now far surpasses that of the previous 11 presidents combined. Bill Clinton granted 61 commutations, and George Bush just 11. But White House officials are still rushing to review all of the approximately 6,000 pending clemency applications before the end of Obama’s term.
In 2016 alone, a total of 839 commutations have been granted.

The Pot Train Could Still Go Off The Tracks, And Here’s How
DENVER (AP) — Weed is winning in the polls, with a solid majority of Americans saying marijuana should be legal. But does that mean the federal government will let dozens of state pot experiments play out? Not by a long shot.
The government still has many means to slow or stop the marijuana train. And President-elect Donald Trump’s nomination of Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions to be the next attorney general has raised fears that the new administration could crack down on weed-tolerant states 20 years after California became the first to legalize medical marijuana.
“We need grown-ups in charge in Washington to say marijuana is not the kind of thing that ought to be legalized. It ought not to be minimized, that it’s in fact a very real danger,” Sessions said during an April Senate hearing.
