Colorado Plans to Restrict Home Grows
Thanks to the most expansive plant limits in America, there’s no better place to be an at-home marijuana farmer than Colorado.
This has also meant there’s no better place to grow cannabis under legal protections in order to ship it around the country and sell it on the black market than Colorado.
And Colorado is tired of it—as is federal law enforcement, which is leading authorities all over the Rocky Mountain State to ponder paring back those plant limits.
Medical marijuana patients in Colorado can grow up to 99 plants, Westword notes, with recreational cannabis users—read: anyone 21 and over—able to cultivate six plants per person. And both patients and rec users have the ability to join up with other adults to form a larger co-op of plants.

Colorado Offers Pot Czar to Help with Legal Weed Transition in Massachusetts
A lot has changed since Colorado voted to legalize recreational weed four years ago when Governor John Hickenlooper humorously told anxious pot advocates “don’t break out the Cheetos or goldfish too quickly.”
It was a brave new world, and Colorado faced unheard of challenges. Things were a bit, well, chaotic for a while. Not everyone knew what was legal and what was not or which government agency was meant to solve the many issues that arose.
Former DEA ‘Propagandist’ Says Agency Knows Marijuana Is Safe
Zealots, hired guns, good Germans—call them what you will, but it would be hard to call the men and women of the Drug Enforcement Administration dummies.
The DEA does not hire just anyone; its agents are the out-performers and overachievers among law enforcement—maybe not quite FBI or CIA material, but still head-and-shoulders above the cops spending careers doing traffic stops in small towns.
All this to say, the DEA is aware of science and it is aware of data. It cannot preach ignorance. But it has a job to do in regard to enforcing federal marijuana law—which is why the DEA knowingly and willingly lies about the (lack of) harm posed by the drug, according to a former woman who cops to spreading misinformation for the agency’s benefit.

Recreational Pot Delivery Is Coming to Portland
Considering that medical marijuana patients in Portland can have pot delivered to their doors, shouldn’t recreational users be given the same privilege?
Portland’s City Council thinks that sounds fine. It recently added a license for delivery-only cannabis businesses to a marijuana regulation plan to come up for a vote next week.
The so-called “marijuana retail couriers” would not be allowed to sell from storefronts. Already existing weed shops will also be able to deliver recreational pot under rules detailed by the state.
Adrian Wayman, co-founder of Green Box, a start-up online weed delivery service, told HIGH TIMES that there’s definitely a market for delivery of recreational pot products. He thinks the “chances are good that the City Council will approve it.”
