Dispatch from Pence-Land: Indiana Cops Lie About Super-Strong Edibles
America took a definite step backwards with the selection of Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III as attorney general—as in a step back towards the 19th century—but for the movement to end marijuana prohibition in America, soon-to-be Vice President Mike Pence could be just as big of a problem. Just look at the nonsense they’re peddling in Pence’s home state of Indiana.
The Hoosier State has some of the toughest drug laws in America. Mere possession of the tiniest scrap of cannabis is a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine; cultivating or possessing for sale more than 30 grams, just over an ounce, is a felony.
As governor, America’s most-loathed theatergoer has spent more energy and political capital punishing gay people for being gay than cracking down any further on cannabis. There’s no need to bother, when he has local police forces concocting wild, Reefer Madness-worthy claims—like the out about the 5,000-milligram lollipop.

Juicy Fruit (Hybrid)
Juicy Fruit is a sweet smelling strain of Thai origin that is usually bright green in color with lots of purple and orange hairs embedded into the bud. Juicy Fruit smells most strongly of fruit punch and lemons, and when the bud is ground up it releases a very strong skunky smell. The taste of Juicy Fruit is surprisingly less fruity than one might expect, leaning more towards creamy flavors like pina colada and vanilla. The high produced by this strain has a lot to do with its popularity. The most immediate effect of Juicy Fruit is a floating feeling that is a little psychedelic. This is a good strain to share with friends because it makes one feel very uplifted, giggly, and chatty. Juicy Fruit has a clean come down with no lingering after effects and would be a good choice for patients suffering from depression, anxiety, mild pain relief and those in need of a creative boost.
The rise of legal weed in America
A majority of the U.S. population now has access to legalized cannabis in some form. What's the track record so far? Here's everything you need to know:Where is weed legal?
Recreational use is now fully legal in eight states plus Washington, D.C., after voters in California, Massachusetts, Nevada, and Maine approved marijuana ballot initiatives earlier this month. On Election Day, voters in Arkansas, Florida, and North Dakota brought the tally of states with legal medical marijuana to 28. Though cannabis is still illegal under federal law, Election Day was widely considered a tipping point for the legalization movement. A recent Gallup poll found that 60 percent of Americans now approve of legalizing marijuana, and there is a growing bipartisan consensus that the $1 trillion war on drugs has failed. Criminalizing the use and sale of drugs has sent millions of nonviolent criminals to prison — a disproportionate number of them black — and empowered violent drug cartels. At the same time, there is growing scientific research showing that casual cannabis use by adults is fairly safe — less dangerous than alcohol or tobacco. Another major factor propelling legalization is that states can tax it and get a big boost in revenues. As one pro-legalization ad in Colorado put it: "Jobs for our people. Money for our schools. Who could ask for more?"
