Massachusetts: Top Pot Regulator Committed to Timely Rollout of Law

Category: News | Posted on Sat, September, 9th 2017 by THCFinder

BOSTON (AP) — The state’s top marijuana regulator pledged Wednesday to implement Massachusetts’ recreational pot law and do his best to meet an ambitious timetable for licensing and opening retail stores in the state, but acknowledged the task won’t be easy.

Steven Hoffman, a retired business executive making his first public comments since being named chairman of the Cannabis Control Commission, also explained during the news conference why he voted against the November ballot initiative that legalized adult use of recreational marijuana.

“I actually supported the objectives of the initiative,” said Hoffman. “My concern as a private citizen was I thought the timeline was pretty short to deal with some of the complexities and public safety issues involved in implementing the law, but I am a supporter of the objectives of the law.”

Medical Marijuana: A Beginner's Guide

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, September, 9th 2017 by THCFinder

This week, I finally convinced my father to try a cannabis salve for his arthritis. You would think after four years of reporting on the marijuana world, I would have made headway on this long ago. After all, like over 85 percent of Americans, my dad supports the medical use of marijuana in a general way, and has been complaining about his achy joints for several years. Weed topicals don't even get you high. But somehow it just never happened.

Then, on Sunday morning, he texted me: "I put the rub on my knees. It works!"

"Duh!" I responded. Cannabis is a powerful medicine, even if we still know very little about what conditions it works for and why. As baby boomers like my father struggle to figure out how to age gracefully, it's very possible that legal pot could play a major role in alleviating a wide range of pains and discomforts, from chemotherapy to throwing out your back.

The Legality of Weed from the Atlantic to the Pacific

Category: News | Posted on Sat, September, 9th 2017 by THCFinder

Growing up on the East Coast, my first experiences with cannabis felt—to some degree—rebellious.

In order to get away with smoking, I had to go to great lengths to avoid strict laws and biased people. This would, inevitably, lead me deep into the dense New England woods or on to private property in which the person(s) of ownership was comfortable with me getting high. It should be noted that these types of people were often difficult to come by.

At the age of 20, I hopped on a plane and found a new home in San Francisco, California. Immediately, I was hit with the warm welcome of culture shock. At the time, marijuana was still illegal, but, I soon realized that pot’s illegal status didn’t stop people from toking up wherever and whenever they wanted. There seemed to be an abundance of weed floating around the city ,and it was all so easily accessible. Never before in my time as a pot-smoker had I experienced so much liberation.

And this is what I’d like to discuss within this article.
