The DEA Just Asked The Feds to Grow 1,000 Pounds of Weed Next Year
Although much of the cannabis community has been waiting on bended knee, for the past few months, to learn whether the U.S Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will downgrade the Schedule I classification of the cannabis plant, a recent report over the agency’s proposed cultivation quota for 2017 suggests that no changes will likely be made in the near future.
It seems that the US government’s leading drug controls are planning to produce around 1,041 pounds of research cannabis next year, slightly less than the 1,451 pounds slated for cultivation in 2016, according to Marijuana.com.
Sockeye, a Portland ad company, takes on marijuana client
After working quietly for three years with a marijuana company, a well known ad firm in Portland came out Friday with its first video advertising campaign.

Colorado Towns Water May Be Tainted With Marijuana Chemical
HUGO, Colo. (AP) — Officials told residents of a small Colorado community not to drink or shower in tap water Thursday because one of the town’s wells may have been contaminated with THC, marijuana’s intoxicating chemical.
No illnesses have been linked to the water in Hugo, a town of about 730 people some 100 miles southeast of Denver, said Lincoln County Public Health Director Susan Kelly.
THC was detected in tests conducted with field kits, although other field tests were negative, sheriff’s Capt. Michael Yowell said.
