You don’t have to be high to love this story: In 1971, five students from San Rafael High School in Marin County, Calif. (of course) reportedly met against a school wall at 4:20 p.m. each day to begin a pot-tentially magical adventure. The “Waldos,” they called themselves — and later told their story in a seminal Huffington Post story.

Time to end the Drug War Gone Wild

November 26, 2016

Of all the growing benefits that pot legalization has done for the state of Washington, its help in bringing about a decline in DUI and drinking related accidents is a worthy side effect. And according to new statistics for the second quarter of 2016, revenues from the sale of marijuana are now very close to equaling and surpassing sales of alcohol.

In 2014 alcohol related incidents declines 9.9% from the year before, and especially since the advent of pot legalization four years ago. And this appears to be primarily due to the changeover from alcohol to marijuana for many recreational users as sales of the alternative drug are reflecting a shift away from booze to pot.

September 13, 2016

The campaign to prevent cannabis legalization in Arizona recently accepted a half-million dollar donation from a pharmaceutical company accused of peddling a dangerous narcotic painkiller off-label.

Drug company Insys made the donation to Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy on Aug. 31, according to information posted by the Arizona Secretary of State. The revelation has lent support to longstanding claims by legalization proponents that drug companies view cannabis as a source of competition for their more addictive, dangerous and expensive products.

Obama’s DEA decrees Marijuana has absolutely no medical use

August 21, 2016

Barack Obama, the former-pot-smoking president, began his second term as something of a hero for backers of the nation’s marijuana legalization movement.

He’ll soon leave office as a total bummer.

In 2013, Obama’s Justice Department said it would allow Washington state and Colorado to proceed with recreational marijuana sales. Obama said he had bigger fish to fry.

It seemed only fitting for a president who loved to smoke pot as a teen growing up in Hawaii, one who delighted pot lovers by proclaiming in 2006 that, unlike Bill Clinton, he had smoked marijuana and inhaled quite frequently. After all, he said, that was the point.

On Thursday night, though, legalization advocates had grown weary of the 44th president. They scheduled a protest to throw marijuana seeds on the White House lawn to show their dismay at the Drug Enforcement Administration’s rejection of a petition to remove marijuana from its place on the list of most dangerous drugs.

The decision quashed the hopes of legalizers who thought it would be Obama who would finally remove marijuana from the list that includes LSD and heroin.
