  • Refresh your stash with these Washington 1/8s
    From city dwellers to mountain explorers, Washington State caters to almost every type of enthusiast. And not only are the views breathtaking in every direction, so is the weed. One of the first states to legalize recreational cannabis use in 2012 (along with Colorado), Washington's weed companies have experienced a boom that has skyrocketed to astronomical levels. The competition for growing operations remains fierce, yet gives consumers a wide variety of products, strains, and state-of-the-art cannabis tech right at our fingertips. But if you're a flower lover through and through, then Washington's weed won't disappoint — especially if you're looking to bulk up your stash. Eighths are both convenient and financially sound since they tend to offer more bud for a fairer price than individual grams. So the next time you're checking menus, save a little cash and look for these stoney picks from the Evergreen State. Freddy's Fuego | Tropic Truffle  Washington stoners love Freddy's Fuego for it's consistency and powerhouse strains. If you haven't tried it, Tropic Truffle is the perfect introduction to the brand.

  • North Dakota’s marijuana legalization campaign is setback due to Coronavirus
    With North Dakota among the states gradually reopening business amid the coronavirus pandemic, there's renewed hope that a campaign to legalize marijuana could soon proceed after temporarily suspending signature gathering. But because of the setback in signature gathering efforts in recent weeks, activists say it's more likely that the initiative will appear on the state's 2022 ballot rather than the one voters will see this November. Legalize ND, the group behind the measure, said last month that door-to-door signature collection would be put on pause due to the risk of spreading the virus. Many businesses that carried the petition on-site were also shuttered due to state orders and social distancing requirements. The organization's proposed initiative would allow adults to purchase and possess up to two ounces of cannabis. Unlike a much more far-reaching proposal the same group pushed in 2018 that included no possession or cultivation limits, which voters rejected, this version would prohibit home growing, impose a 10 percent excise tax and establish a regulatory body to approve licenses for marijuana businesses. Voters previously approved a medical cannabis legalization measure in 2016. On Monday, the campaign signaled that activities may continue again on a limited basis now that North Dakota has entered into a first phase of reopening, allowing certain businesses to resume operations. Legalize ND is soliciting input from businesses that have their petition available for patrons to sign, though they said they feel “it is too soon” to have petitioners go door-to-door to gather signatures at this point. “What we're doing is, the state of North Dakota is in phase one of reopening and we want to make sure that business owners are comfortable carrying the petition in their establishment” before publicizing it for voters, Legalize ND's David Owen told Marijuana Moment in a phone interview on Tuesday. “We don't want to send a bunch of people to a business and for them to get spooked because of COVID or for them to not have the floor space to be able to handle it.” So far, it seems that vaping retailers and headshops are most willing to allow voters to sign in support of the measure at their locations. Tattoo shops, meanwhile, carry more risks in terms of exposure to open skin and capacity restrictions, so those will likely not host petitions for the time being. To qualify for the November ballot, activists would have to collect 13,452 valid signatures from registered voters by July 6. ... read more

  • Joe Biden includes marijuana decriminalization in new ‘Plan for Black America’
    Former Vice President Joe Biden is using a newly released plan on racial justice to tout his existing modest marijuana reform proposals. The presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee said he would “decriminalize the use of cannabis and automatically expunge all prior cannabis use convictions” as part of a “Plan For Black America” his campaign released on Monday. He also talked about changing broader criminal justice policies, including ending the crack-versus-cocaine sentencing disparity, repealing mandatory minimums, abolishing the death penalty and diverting people with minor drug convictions to treatment instead of prisons. While advocates generally welcome the proposals, they argue that they do not go far enough to fully address racial equity. Notably absent from his plan is legalizing marijuana for adult use—something activists say is critical to ensure equity and restorative justice.
    Today, I’m releasing a new plan to achieve equity for the African American community and take us one step closer to making America what it ought to be. Read more: https://t.co/ub49jLMI9M— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) May 4, 2020 “Considering the long violent history of the United States war on communities color, this plan is a half measure at best,” Jason Ortiz, president of the Minority Cannabis Business Association, told Marijuana Moment. “True equity for our communities would include an admission that our federal government committed a massive crime through the war on drugs, and a plan to undue that damage and make our communities whole.” “True equity must include a release of all cannabis prisoners, massive community investment and a legal cannabis marketplace owned and operated primarily by people of color,” he added. “I'm not convinced Biden is there yet but we must all continue to push him for the sake our communities.” What's more, while Biden's treatment for substance misuse proposal is viewed as superior to incarceration, advocates largely oppose forcing individuals into treatment as a mandate from drug courts, which continue to handle a health issue through a criminal justice lens. Drug policy reform advocates have widely criticized Biden's record as a senator, condemning his role in authoring and promoting punitive anti-drug laws that contributed to mass incarceration. And his ongoing opposition to legalization—a policy supported by a majority of his party's voters, particularly young people—has been a lingering source of frustration. “Biden's plan calls for the decriminalization of cannabis and the end of all incarceration for drug abuse,” Ortiz said. “While that flies ... read more
