Cannabis has been mired in a miasma of stigma for the past 100 years. In the US, the stigma was created by the government and then embraced and perpetuated by the media beginning in the 1920s. In the 1930s, people who consumed our favorite plant were depicted as depraved, wild and barely in control. Or […]
The week in weed: This week we’ve got a mish-mash of stories. States are beginning to really recognize that marijuana arrests have been mostly racially driven. I don’t know if a pardon is as good as expungement, but it’s a start on a road that should have been traveled decades ago. States are also beginning […]
This week in weed, we passed 4-20 for another year. The 50th Hash Bash was held in Ann Arbor. And at the same time, we’ve got legislators who want to tax cannabis on the basis of how much THC it has in it. Bad idea. Until we tax liquor the same way, what difference does […]
LEGALIZATION! It’s happening! In the week before our national holiday, “4-20” it’s time to take a quick look at legalization across the USofA. It’s happening,,,but with some sad exceptions. A majority of the citizens in our country live in an adult-use legal state. In the last 2 weeks, New Mexico, Virginia and New York have […]
OK! One week away from 420…OK, a bit less than a week!!! More and more states are legalizing adult use. Some unexpected states are considering medical marijuana. Where weed is legalized, medical or adult use, more tax money is flowing into the state coffers. The states are legalizing, but how about the US? This week, […]
Hard to believe that we’re already 1/4 of the way through 2021!!! This week, Weed Week in Review congratulates two states for legalizing adult use cannabis!!!! Both New Mexico and New York have legalized adult-use cannabis. In New Mexico, it took a special session of the legislature and in New York, it just took a […]
Holy Smoke!!! It’s already the 5th month of the year. Just amazing. Where has this year gone? I guess without major upheavals and craziness, that the crazies are there, but more in the background. Where does the proposed Medical Marijuana bill stand, as the session nears an end? I had to put this one first […]
This week, Weed Week in Review is following several stories including the special session to be called in New Mexico for one reason only…legalizing adult use cannabis. Amazing. And don’t forget to scroll down to the cancer stories (there are two) as well as the best marijuana songs ever recorded…and there have been a lot […]
This week, Weed Week in Review is only publishing nice stories about weed. The worst thing that could happen to the weed world (NOT) is there was nothing terrible happening…at least on at the top of the heap. True, the New Mexico legislature just can’t seem to get their shit together and pass a law. […]
In the first installment of the Cannabis 101 series, I attempted to answer the ‘big’ questions about why cannabis is our favorite plant. In this post, I’m going to try to answer some of the most frequently asked questions related to cannabis and health. The answers are based on research that is continually being expanded […]
Weed Week in Review publishes a weekly report of the good, the bad and the ugly about weed in the US (and other places too). We’ll provide a little commentary about what’s happening in the world of weed. Smoke ‘Em If You Got ‘Em This is a terrific four panel cartoon. It’s serious. And the […]
