California Bill Seeks to Ban Branded Cannabis Merchandise
A lot of weed design artists are wondering if their services will soon not be needed, or worse, banned, if California Senate Bill 162 is approved. The bill seeks to impose restrictions on marketing, labeling and even the shape of a pot leaf on products, in an effort to reduce its attractiveness to the under-21 crowd.
The measure is one of several moving through the California legislature that seeks to keep cannabis out of the hands of children.
The bill would prevent businesses from advertising through branded merchandise, “including, but not limited to, clothing, hats, or other merchandise with the name or logo of the product.”
“This is all about making sure, in the context of the legalization of marijuana, that you don’t end up inadvertently leading so many of our young people into drug abuse,” said the bill’s author, Senator Ben Allen, a Democrat representing Hollywood.
California already has done a lot to safeguard children.

In states where marijuana is legal, growers are trying to adapt to plunging retail prices
Pot growers in states where marijuana has been legalized for adult consumption are grappling with the problems of supply and demand that have challenged other commodities. Wholesale U.S. marijuana prices dropped to $1,614 a pound in July, from a high of $2,133 a pound in September 2015, according to New Leaf Data Services, and while that has been great for pot consumers, growers are less enthusiastic, The Wall Street Journal reports. Axios broke that down into more consumer-scale prices, citing BDS Analytics.
OG Kush (Hybrid)
Known as The "Original Gangster" or "Ocean Grown" OG Kush comes from the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles and is considered to be the strain that put Southern California buds on par with the flowers coming from up North. Developed over three generations and years of stabilizing as well as developing the perfect fertilizer / food for this particular strain, resulted in a phenomenal kush, said to be the strongest strains today. OG Kush, when properly grown, has the highest THC content of all kushes.
Will Colorado Be the First State to Send a Cannabis Businessman to Congress?
Colorado can lay claim to a very limited resource in America: a seat in Congress that’s a weed vote.
Rep. Jared Polis was a reliable pro-marijuana vote in Washington even before he and three other representatives founded the Cannabis Caucus. And so with Polis now plotting a run for governor, it stands to reason that his successor will be 420-friendly. It’s just a question of how friendly.
Surely, there is more than marijuana on Todd Mitchem’s mind. Mitchem is a motivational speaker and author—he just penned a tome all about changing routines called You, Disrupted—but he is undeniably inextricably tied to cannabis. He’s a marijuana entrepreneur, the former chief revenue officer for Denver-based O.pen Vape and the founder of Tinder-but-just-friends-but-for-stoners app High There! What would he do in Congress? Could there really be a marijuana businessman roaming the halls of the Capitol?? Colorado may yet find out.
Earlier this month, Mitchem announced his candidacy for Polis’s seat earlier this month, as Denver’s Westwordreported. And lo, it’s weed that compelled Mitchem to enter the race, he told the paper—the Trump administration’s bellicose stance on weed.
