These Are the Best—and the Worst—States for Medical Marijuana
On paper, medical marijuana is more common in America than firearms.
Forty-four states have medical cannabis laws on the books—which means that more than 300 million Americans can access legal marijuana in some form if they or a family member is sick. That’s 85 percent of the country.
Compare that to the owners of the country’s 300 million guns—which are stashed in only one-third of households—and it seems the U.S. should be in the running for mellowest place on earth, rather than the best-armed and most-incarcerated.
And since deaths related to opiate abuse are reduced by as much as 25 percent where medical-marijuana is available, America should also expect the heroin epidemic to be ending any day now.
Sounds great! But for now, this is all abstract theory.

An OG variant with not too dense but not fluffy buds, Lemon OG will never disappoint you when youre reaching for a smoke in the afternoon.

Woody Harrelson quit; What happens to your body after a stoner quits smoking weed
Ask an expert about the effects of marijuana withdrawal and the conversation quickly turns to the cognitive.
After all, marijuana is a hallucinogenic drug that alters the brain, how a person thinks and perceives the world, research shows. Experts then can identify with actor Woody Harrelson and his decision to quit marijuana a year ago because it kept him from "being emotionally available."
It's true. Real feelings are among the things that return to a person coming off years of marijuana use. But so does anxiety and the realization of the drug's consequences.

Town Votes to Reduce Weed Possession Charges to Less Than $1
The police chief in Monona, Wisconsin seems like a very chill guy.
“If the community values are, ‘Marijuana is not that serious of an offense’ and they want to have a $1 fine, or no fine, that’s their opinion,” Chief Walter Ostrenga said after the town council voted to scrap all weed possession charges.
Under the new ordinance, possessing marijuana in public or in private spaces is no longer subject to a fine, as long as the person is over 21.
Smoking weed in a private residence is also exempt, although toking in public is still subject to a $200 fine.
After a year and a half of discussion, the Monona City Council considered reducing weed possession fines of $200 to a mere $1.
But then they decided even a dollar was too much.
