Colorado pot club measure clears 1st hurdle
DENVER (AP) — Colorado is moving ahead with a first-in-the-nation attempt to allow marijuana clubs.
But the measure that passed a Republican state Senate committee Wednesday evening doesn’t go as far as some marijuana activists hoped.
The bill would allow on-site marijuana consumption at private clubs in willing jurisdictions. And those clubs may allow indoor pot smoking, despite health concerns about indoor smoking.
But the bill is far from allowing a statewide network of pot clubs. For one, it would allow any jurisdiction to ban them, same as they can currently prohibit retail pot sales.
Purple Urkle (Indica)
Purple Urkle comes from Mendo Purps pheno and is native to the notorious green triangle in northern California. It is characterized by unusually long orange hairs covering small, dense, purple nugs when properly grown and harvested. The color is a purple much like that found on quality strains of Lavender, although despite common misconception, the two are not related.
Marijuana Stocks Are Doomed if Trump Reneges on His Pot Pledge
With some small exceptions over the past couple of years, marijuana's expansion has been practically unstoppable. In the November elections, eight of the nine states voting on cannabis initiatives and amendments favored legalizing medical or recreational pot (sorry, Arizonans), while two states, Ohio and Pennsylvania, also wound up legalizing medical cannabis entirely through the legislative process last year. By year's end, 28 states had legalized medical cannabis, while eight had legalized recreational weed.
As weed has expanded, pardon the pun, like a weed, so has the public favorability toward the drug. A 2016 Gallup poll found 60% support for the nationwide legalization of marijuana, which compares quite favorably to just the 25% who felt the same way in 1995, the year before California became the first state to pass a Compassionate Use law for medical cannabis patients.
Girl Scout Cookies (Hybrid)
If you live in the Bay Area, you've likely heard of Girl Scout Cookies. Whether it's from one of the songs by the famous San Francisco rapper, Berner or actually trying it yourself, Girl Scout Cookies is a can't-miss strain that will medicate you beyond your wildest dreams. A potent mix of an OG Kush x Durban Poison x Cherry Kush mother backcrossed with a prime-looking OG Kush father created possibly one of the best Northern California strains of all time. For those of you who are into the Bay Area rap scene, you%u2019ve likely already smoked some of this off-the-charts weed after hearing some of the songs by San Francisco rapper and collective owner, Berner.
Germany Expects Cannabis-Growing Program to Be Going in 2019
BERLIN (AP) — German authorities say they expect to have a cannabis-growing program up and running in 2019 after the country approved legislation allowing some patients to get the drug as a prescription medication.
Germany’s Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices said Friday that it’s setting up a “cannabis agency” to oversee the growing program. It plans to solicit bids from throughout the European Union to find companies to run it.
The program’s first cannabis is expected to be available in 2019. Until then, prescriptions will be fulfilled with imported marijuana, which currently comes from the Netherlands and Canada.
