California Seeks Control of Unruly Medical Pot Industry
LOS ANGELES (AP) — California is trying to get control of its unruly medical marijuana industry.
State regulators released draft regulations Friday intended to impose order on the loosely organized marketplace created over two decades ago.
The proposal would establish the first comprehensive rules for growing, testing, transporting and selling medical pot in the state that is home to 1 in 8 Americans.
Voters last year agreed to legalize recreational marijuana use for adults in 2018. The state is faced with the challenging task of trying to govern a vast, emerging cannabis industry with a projected value of $7 billion.
Similar rules are being created for the recreational industry. There are differences, and a bill in the Legislature backed by Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown seeks to square the recreational pot law with the rules for medical marijuana.
Hezekiah Allen, president of the California Growers Association, an industry group, called the draft rules “a major step toward a well-regulated cannabis industry.”

Fire OG (Hybrid)
Widely regarded as the most potent of the OG strains, Fire OG Kush delivers some of the most frosted buds known to the medical marijuana community. Pristinely crossed with the original OG Kush strain and the F2 hybrid, San Fernando Valley OG Kush, Raskals OG has truly gifted the MMJ industry with one of the best medicinal strains around. These buds look like snow-covered mountains with dancing flames of wildfire sparsely strewn about the foliage.
Montel Williams reveals how smoking marijuana every day for 17 years changed his life
Former television personality Montel Williams has used cannabis nearly every day for 17 years. But he hasn't smoked it in over a decade.
"I have dexterity problems. I can't roll a joint to save my life," Williams tells Business Insider. He prefers vaporizing more concentrated forms of the drug.
Williams, who is also a retired Navy officer, suffers from multiple sclerosis, a disease that causes his immune system to attack the insulation around his nerves. It produces intense, burning sensations from his head to his toes.

Federal Government Admits Marijuana Legalization Doesn’t Lead to Teen Use
On April 20, as more Americans than ever before celebrated the right to use cannabis with more freedom than ever before, the National District Attorneys Association (NDAA) released a long-awaited policy paper on marijuana in America.
The NDAA, which so far has reacted to Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s old-school, hard-line approach to law-and-order in America with a welcome embrace, called for the federal Justice Department to enforce federal drug laws “consistently” across the country (a not-so-coded way of calling for a crackdown).
One reason why federal law needs strict enforcing, the prosecutors argued, is the children—who also have greater access to marijuana than ever before, they claimed.
