Washington State's Marijuana Logo Nixed As Too Weed-Friendly

A proposed logo for marijuana products in Washington state appears to have been too obvious, in hindsight.
 
Last week, regulators in the state scrapped the logo, which would have appeared on packaging for all recreational cannabis products, in response to pressure from critics who said the design (pictured below) glamorized marijuana culture.
 
Washington legalized pot last year, empowering the state's Liquor Control Board to write rules that will govern retail cannabis sales. As part of the process, an in-house designer came up with the logo that, by law, must mark all products that include cannabis as an ingredient.
 
"The intention behind it, of course, was to readily identify marijuana products," Mikhail Carpenter, a spokesperson for the liquor board, told The Huffington Post. "When you're dealing with extracts or brownies, you need to make sure you identify them as containing cannabis."

Former Mexican president Fox urges marijuana legalization

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, July, 9th 2013 by THCFinder
SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Former Mexican President Vicente Fox took his crusade to legalize marijuana to San Francisco on Monday, joining pot advocates to urge the United States and his own country to decriminalize the sale and recreational use of cannabis.
 
Fox met for three hours with the advocates, including Steve DeAngelo, the Oakland-based executive director of California's largest marijuana dispensary, and former Microsoft executive Jamen Shively, who hopes to create a Seattle-based pot brand now that Washington state has legalized recreational use.
 
Legalization, Fox told reporters after the meeting, is the only way to end the violence of Mexican drug cartels, which he blamed on America's war on drugs.
 
"The cost of the war is becoming unbearable - too high for Mexico, for Latin America and for the rest of the world," Fox said in English.
 
Every day, he said, 40 young people are killed in drug-related violence.
 
Fox's position on legalizing drugs has evolved over time since the days when he cooperated with U.S. efforts to tamp down production in Mexico during his 2000-2006 presidential term. He has been increasingly vocal in his opposition to current policies, backing two prior efforts to legalize marijuana in Mexico.
