Pot Advocates Worry Marijuana Protections Are Burning Down Under Trump
Marijuana advocates worried that President Donald Trump's administration will crack down on state weed laws used the unofficial holiday celebrating the drug to call for a "joint session" of Congress — pun intended.
The pro-cannabis rights group DCMJ used April 20th — or 4/20 — to organize a free joint giveaway just steps from the Capitol in an effort to encourage Congress to reauthorize an expiring provision preventing the federal government from meddling in medicinal marijuana programs.
Even as approval ratings for legalized marijuana reach new highs, the new administration is pushing for pro-pot policies to go up in smoke.

Instagram Hackers Target Weed Business Accounts
Instagram hacking has more than doubled since last year with large accounts falling victim to intruders, especially accounts connected to the weed industry.
Why? Because weed-related accounts tend to have a lot of followers and happen to be connected to legit companies that are still forced to deal only in cash.
Instagram, currently the fastest growing social media network, also provides marketing tools for weed companies who are still dependent on alternative outlets due to marijuana’s tentative status. This is especially true these days with so many anti-weed crusaders in the White House trying to turn the clock back.
According to the LA Weekly, an employee of TLC Collective in Los Angeles, said an affiliated account—the Jungle Boys grow operation with more than 300,000 followers—was recently disabled for 24 hours.
