Move Over Willie! Merle Haggard Marijuana to Hit Colorado Market
Country legend Merle Haggard never slowed down, touring well into his seventies—and apparently, he’s not letting a little thing like death stop him from making waves now.
According to Rolling Stone, recreational strains of marijuana developed by the late musician are set to enter the Colorado market in the coming months. Merle’s Girls—named after a California-based soccer team sponsored by Haggard and co-developed by Colorado Weed Co.—will initially launch with a sativa strain, although the company plans to expand its product line in the coming years.
Spain’s Smokers Clubs on the Rise as Legislation Catches up with Reality
Most people have heard wonderful stories about Barcelona and many of them are probably true. The Spanish city on the Mediterranean with its mild temperatures, wide avenues and awesome art and architecture, including Picasso and Gaudí, also hosts hundreds of private “Smokers Clubs.”
If you can find them—they’re discreetly located—you’d be welcome to join for a small donation (they are non-profit), for which you’ll be given a membership card and the right to smoke as much pot as you’d like, inside the club.
To avoid the so-called drug tourism that Amsterdam sorely complains about, some clubs have a waiting period to smoke, unless you’re sponsored by a member or friend. And, yes, Spaniards are very friendly people.
Pot Matters: Marijuana Use Up on Campus—But Binge Drinking Is Down
Marijuana use by college students has spiked in the last decade, a new survey shows.
Monitoring the Future (MTF), a continuing study of American youth, reports that nearly four in 10 college students—38 percent—had used marijuana in the past year. That’s up from three in 10 in 2006.
Daily and close-to-daily use—20 or more times a month—went up as well. In 2014, 5.9 percent of college students report frequent use, up from 3.5 percent in 2007.
That represents “the highest level of daily use measured in the last 34 years,” the report says.

Pot Matters: Pardon Tommy Chong
Tommy Chong was arrested on federal charges in 2003 for selling bongs and served a nine-month prison sentence. In court, the prosecutor argued that he “used his public image to promote this crime” and that, in turn, marketed his products to children. The nine-month sentence was part of a plea agreement.
The White House has a web-feature for citizens to file petitions on subjects of interest. If they receive 100,000 signatures in 30 days, the White House will answer the petition. They won’t necessarily grant the required action, but they do take note when enough people sign the petition to get their attention. Chong’s petition raises an issue that deserves the attention of the White House and political leaders.
