Congrats to Canada for Passing Cannabis Legalization!

On Tuesday, June 19th, 2018, Canadian Senators made global history by passing a law that made Canada the first G7 nation to legalize the adult recreational use of cannabis. After Representatives passed C-45, also called the Cannabis Act, the Senate also needed to approve the new law. Some activists worried that changes to the Act […]

Canadian Senate To Vote Today on Bill C45 to Legalize Cannabis

Here in the United States, there’s a lot we can learn from our friendly neighbors to the north. Today, Thursday June 7th, 2018, Canadian lawmakers will vote on whether or not to legalize cannabis for adult recreational use. Polling seems to indicate strong support, so it looks like national legalization for Canada could be right […]

Canada’s Great Cannabis Disconnect: Lisa Kirkman’s Case

Canada’s Great Cannabis Disconnect: Lisa Kirkman’s Case

I live in what I consider to be the best country on this little blue planet.  I feel National pride like it’s a seventh sense.  In 2010, Canada hosted the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia.  I was a sobbing friggin’ mess from the start of the opening ceremonies til the end and beyond.  I’ve […]

The Gateway Theory Revisited and Proved Possible?

The Gateway Theory Revisited and Proved Possible?

  The Gateway Theory, such a bogus term.  I mean what WERE they smokin’ when they came up with that? Someone was watching too much Star Trek if you ask me! So … as if anyone doesn’t know this, the Gateway theory states that when kids use cannabis, it makes them want to try other […]

Getting to a Groovier State: Coverage for Our Local Cannabusiness

Getting to a Groovier State: Coverage for Our Local Cannabusiness

A couple weeks ago, I was enjoying my Sunday (which for me usually means eating junk food, hitting dabs, and watching TV), and an ad for State Farm Insurance came on—this time featuring Scooby Doo and the whole gang. It seemed odd to me that a modern State Farm ad would use a cartoon that […]

LADY BUSINESS: Georgia Toons

LADY BUSINESS: Georgia Toons

I have enjoyed Georgia Peschel’s cannabis inspired cartoons for several years on Facebook and in numerous industry publications.  Her quirky sense of humor coupled with her adorably cute characters grab people’s attention while driving home the point that cannabis prohibition is a horribly failed social policy.  The following interview and accompanying “Georgia Toons” provide insight […]
