POEM: If Love Is the Answer…

I’m dead in the corner Won’t stop til they tell me to. Alive in the water I’ll move when you ask me to. A shot in the dark Prayer without an answer It’s the beginning the fresh start. One word to heal two broken hearts And somewhere out there there is a soul Crying for […]

Jackie Chan’s Son Arrested for Cannabis During Chinese Drug Crackdown

It sounds like something out of a dystopian book: music-lovers at Beijing bars were detained and forced to submit to urine drug tests by police.

 I’m sitting at a long white table in a folding chair surrounded by bearded men in hats decorated with pins and 15 different ways to do a dab. The room is brightly lit, and I dig through my own bag to find the small silicone container I’ve got my errl in. Mostly everyone has slabs, […]

NORML Launches Business Network

NORML has been fighting for nearly half a century to replace our nation’s overreaching, under-serving and (by any objective measure) disastrous marijuana laws with a sensible, regulated retail system – and in 2014, real change is finally upon us.  The effective launch of Colorado and Washington State’s new cannabis market is a clear indication that […]
