For a second year running, the U.S. Border Partrol reported drastically reduced cannabis seizures along the Mexican border—and even the mainstream media can't help making the connection to the growing trend toward legalization and tolerance in the United States. In reporting the findings,the Washington Post used the headline, "Legal marijuana is finally doing what the drug war couldn't."

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, March, 22nd 2016 by THCFinder

congress medical marijuanaI received the following alert from Americans for Safe Access:

Hundreds of medical cannabis patients, researchers, advocates and other stakeholders are visiting lawmakers in Washington, DC, this morning to support the first comprehensive bipartisan federal medical cannabis reform bill ever introduced in the US Congress.

Participants in ASA’s National Medical Cannabis Unity Conference are on Capitol Hill to support the CARERS Act right now. Can you make three phone calls to help get that bill passed this year?

The Compassionate Access, Research Expansion, and Respect States (CARERS) Act is the most comprehensive piece of federal medical cannabis legislation that has ever been introduced in both the U.S. House and Senate. This bipartisan legislation would remedy the state/federal conflict over medical cannabis laws.

We are asking members nationwide to call their US Senators and US Representative and ask him or her to support the bill today. The timing matters. Hundreds of advocates are visiting offices right now. Your calls will be part of a powerful message about medical cannabis in Congress today.

Click here to find the telephone numbers for your federal representatives and a sample script for your phone call. It’s fast, easy, and makes a real difference!

canopy boulder canopyboulderI am by no means a business expert. I learn more about as time goes by, but my skill set is more suited for being a Hobbit-sized weed blogger than it is being a titan of industry. I think there are a lot of people out there that have a great business idea, or may even be doing business right now on a small scale, but could definitely use their help in taking their company to the next level.
