Dear Johnny:

The third round of proposed rules drafted by the Marijuana Control Board (MCB) has been issued, and those who wish to provide feedback may do so before 4:30 p.m. Thursday, September 10. The current set of rules addresses regulations related to cultivators, product manufacturing, and testing.

If you wish to be heard, please take a moment to provide your feedback to the MCB. And take a look at the campaign’s comments, available here.

As with previous rounds, most of the proposed rules are reasonable, but several areas should be improved. For example:

— The draft rules would prohibit the sale of marijuana-infused cooking oil directly to consumers — which could be burdensome to medical marijuana patients who wish to create their own edibles.

— The rules seek to impose an artificial limit on the percentage of THC available in any product, despite the fact that the federal government has approved a medicine that contains 100% synthetic THC.

— They would prohibit cultivators from allowing odors to be detected by the public, even for large operations in rural areas.

For a closer look at our comments, take a look at our letter to the board. And if you wish, you can either submit your own comments or click here to send an email to the board immediately.

Then, please forward this email to other Alaskans who support fair rules for regulating the state’s emerging marijuana marketplace.



US Sen. Elizabeth Warren Is 'Open' To Legalizing Recreational Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Fri, September, 4th 2015 by THCFinder

U.S. senator and democratic darling Elizabeth Warren has changed her stance on marijuana legalization. 

According to, she told Joshua Miller of The Boston Globe on Wednesday that she is now open to ballot questions seeking to legalize pot.

“You were opposed to legalization in 2012. As a Massachusetts voter, what’s your position today?” Miller asked Warren.

“I’m open to it,” she replied. “I think we’ve learned more. A couple of states have legalized marijuana for recreational use. Frankly, I think we ought to be learning what we can from those states.”

Warren also said that she is a proponent of marijuana research and has been "pushing the federal government" to step up its game. 

This week, the Massachusetts attorney general ruled in favor of a proposed ballot question calling for the legalization of recreational pot. Sponsors of the initiative need to gather nearly 65,000 signatures by November 28 to secure a spot on the 2016 ballot. 



Vermont’s Perfect Storm to a Retail Cannabis Market

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 3rd 2015 by THCFinder

While cannabis advocates push to raise vast campaign funding to pass initiatives to legalize the leaf in their neck of the woods, Vermont is poised to become the first state in the nation to take this leap by way of its legislature.

Earlier this week, House Speaker Shap Smith—who has admitted in the past to not being completely sold on the concept of legal weed—said that he fully intends to stand behind legislation in 2016 aimed at establishing a retail cannabis trade across the state.

Although Smith has stood along the sidelines of the cannabis movement over the past year, he now taken sides with the will of the people to pass a common sense bill on the issue in the next legislative session.  

“It’s clear to me in my discussions with Vermonters that in general, the people in this state probably favor legalization,” Smith told Vermont Public Radio. “I will support a bill to legalize marijuana if we make sure that we have very strong protections for people who are driving under the influence, to make sure that we can prosecute them, and as long as we make sure that we have laws that keep marijuana out of the hands of kids.”

DEA Agents Don’t Lie, Says San Diego Judge In Medical Marijuana Case

San Diego CA – In one of the most depressing statements from a judge I’ve heard, Judge Jay Bloom of the San Diego Superior Court vilified cannabis patient witnesses from the bench while at the same time insisting DEA agents are bound to tell the truth on the witness stand or risk arrest and conviction.

The criminal case of Ernest James Knight and co-defendant Sandra began Wednesday with the preliminary examination. It was a two day affair and very expensive.  The prosecution called two DEA special agents to make her case. There were no local cops called. The first of the special agents, DEA Special Agent, John Gieson testified to 17 years of training in Virginia but when eventually questioned about California cannabis law, had no knowledge.  That is because the federal government does not recognize the truth of our cannabis laws.

Geison took us through the knock and forced entry on the first of two properties raided by the nine special agents who participated. The occupant of the first house, Sandra, was home alone in Oceanside February of this year and, according to Geison, marijuana was being grown illegally inside and in a shed in Sandra’s backyard. Geison counted 286 cannabis plants in various stages of growth. Sandra was arrested and interrogated and Geison claims she confessed to her crimes.  But, Sandra only told the special agent she was growing for a very ill woman and several other patients. All were medical cannabis patients. Sandra was not, but in her hospice and caregiver duties she provided medicine. From the stand, Gleison claimed statements which Sandra says she never made. It is a common thread in all testimony from all DEA special agents in these cases.

Friends and family of Jeff Mizanskey gathered outside the Jefferson City Correctional Center at around 7 am in anticipation of his release. Early reports indicated that he would have his freedom between 8 and 10 am, but David Owen, Communications Director with the Missouri Department of Corrections, told High Times that it would be closer to 7:30 am.

At 7:42 am, Mizanskey exited general population and stepped into the lobby of the prison a free man. A crowd of loved ones and supporters, including state lawmakers and marijuana activists, erupted in cheers the moment he walked through the door.

A press conference was held outside the prison. Mizanskey told HIGH TIMES that his releases was like a "dream" and that he planned to use his newfound freedom to campaign for the legalization of marijuana, so that no one else is ever forced to endure the hell he has suffered.

After the press conference, Mizanskey and his family met for lunch at the Town Grill in Jefferson City. HIGH TIMES sat down with Mizanskey outside the restaurant for some final thoughts. Read what he had to say in the January 2016 issue.

I received the following article from Anthony Franciosi, founder of The Honest Marijuana Company out of Colorado, and felt it was worth passing along. Exercising is important, and I think that cannabis is also important. Below are six reasons to combine the two:

The words “marijuana” and “exercise” may not go together upon first glance, but they actually go hand in hand. The marriage of the two is something you may have not considered, but if you’re looking to get ripped–you really should.

Listen up.

Did you know that weed is actually the best thing you can do for your workout routine?

Sure, we know pot has the power to relieve pain and stress, but did you know it can also improve focus, increase metabolism, and make you BETTER at your favorite sports?

Let’s look at the facts.

Some of the most incredible athletes are actually pot smokers.

Don’t believe me? Hmmmm.

I mean, this may sound crazy, but think about it. Remember Michael Phelps? He has (had?) 22 Olympic medals and, as we all know, he’s a big fan of the reefer.
