Michigan to Get Push from MPP to Legalize Marijuana in 2018
Although a proposed ballot measure seeking to legalize marijuana across Michigan for recreational purposes failed to get in front of the voters this year, the word on the street is that the Marijuana Policy Project, the national cannabis advocacy group largely responsible for Colorado’s legal pot market, is considering jumping in to get the deed done in 2018.
In the coming months, the MPP will pick up where it left off six years ago, when the group led the campaign to bring medical marijuana to the Great Lake State, by embarking on a three city tour to discuss with advocates the drafting of a new initiative intended to bring down prohibition in Michigan. The tour is scheduled to make stops in Grand Rapids, Ann Arbor and Detroit.
How Trump’s Call for Congressional Term Limits Could Affect Marijuana Reform
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump recently said that he plans to take immediate action to eliminate some of the stagnation among United States lawmakers that has prevented substantial progress from being made inside the halls of Congress.

Business Owners Replace Idealists in Legal Pot Movement
DENVER (AP) — Business owners are replacing idealists in the pot-legalization movement as the nascent marijuana industry creates a broad base of new donors, many of them entrepreneurs willing to spend to change drug policy.
Unlike in the past, these supporters are not limited to a few wealthy people seeking change for personal reasons. They constitute a bigger coalition of business interests. And their support provides a significant financial advantage for pro-legalization campaigns.
“It’s mainly a social-justice movement. But undoubtedly there are business interests at work, which is new in this movement,” said Kayvan Khalatbari, a one-time pot-shop owner and now head of a Denver marijuana consulting firm.
Election 2016: In Florida, Medical Marijuana Gets Its Revenge
The You Tube video begins with footage of a man and woman in white lab coats behind a pharmacy counter. An ominous male voiceover says, “This is a pharmacist. Qualifications: 4 years of medical training and 2,000 hours of clinical hours.”
The 30-second spot then cuts to a heavy-set dude with a ponytail handling hefty-sized buds of marijuana from a glass jar. The same voice warns, “This is a budtender. Qualifications: No medical training and no clinical experience. But knows a lot about pot firsthand!”
The propaganda piece ends with the narrator nailing the point home: Medical marijuana in Florida will be dispensed by budtenders in pot shops instead of pharmacists in pharmacies.
