Election Night Expands Cannabis Industry

Election Night Expands Cannabis Industry

Election Night Expands Cannabis Industry

Amidst the suspense and commotion of the presidential election, the cannabis industry in the United States quietly, but significantly, expanded on Tuesday night. A record number of medical and adult use initiatives were on ballots across the nation, and the large number of victories drastically expands the scope of the industry, while also likely setting the stage for further initiatives in 2018 and beyond.

According to the Associated Press, adult use ballot initiatives passed in three states – California (56 percent of voters approved Proposition 64), Massachusetts (54 percent of voters approved Question 4), and Nevada (54 percent of voters approved Question 2). Proponents of the adult use initiative in Maine are also claiming victory on Question 1, although national media outlets have refrained from calling the proposition, as precincts continue to report and the margins remain razor thin. Overall, the only blemish for recreational ballot measures last night was in Arizona, where 52 percent of voters defeated Proposition 205.

Once the laws approved at the ballot box last night go into effect, more than 64 million Americans will live in states where adults can legally use cannabis under state law. Moreover, while the cannabis movement had been confined to the West Coast, the passage in Massachusetts (and, potentially, Maine) gives adult use marijuana laws a foothold on the East Coast.

In addition to adult use proposals, Arkansas (53 percent of voters approved Issue 6), Florida (71 percent of voters approved Amendment 2), and North Dakota (64 percent of voters approved Measure 5) approved medical marijuana ballot initiatives, bringing the total number of states that have approved such laws to 28.

It remains to be seen whether 2016 will be seen as a tipping point with regard to efforts to legitimize and legalize cannabis in the United States, but last night’s victories establish significant momentum going forward. While concern remains that President-Elect Trump may appoint individuals who are antagonistic towards the cannabis industry to key positions, such as Attorney General, the likelihood that the Department of Justice will amend its Cole Memo-enunciated stance on the enforcement of the Controlled Substances Act (the “CSA”) seems to be diminishing. With more than half the states in the nation having now approved medical marijuana laws and approximately one-fifth of the country’s population now residing in a state that has approved recreational usage of cannabis for adults, the pressure seems to be mounting on the federal government to either address the legal dichotomy directly or, at the very least, to continue to exercise discretion while also beginning to tackle issues such as access to financial services and taxation.

For summaries of these ballot initiatives and information on implementation, check back to Dykema’s Cannabis Law Blog.

Marc Emery arrested after Montreal police raid new Cannabis Culture Dispensaries

Marc Emery arrested after Montreal police raid new Cannabis Culture Dispensaries

Montreal police raided several new Cannabis Culture dispensaries Friday evening, apparently without a warrant.

The news broke over Facebook where Cannabis Culture went live. Cannabis Culture co-owner Jodie Emery also tweeted the news:

Her husband, Marc Emery, was arrested at the Mont-Royal Avenue location, along with a still-unknown number of staff members.

“This arrest is wrong, and the prohibition is wrong, and the prime minister is a disgrace,” Emery reportedly shouted as police arrested him. A crowd quickly began chanting: “Free Marc Emery.”

Jodie later shared her husband and business partner’s arrest on Instagram. She doesn’t know yet if a warrant is out for her arrest as well. 

Sources told the Montreal Gazette that undercover officers had been surveilling the store just hours after opening yesterday.

Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre said there would be “zero tolerance” for unregulated vendors. Police have previously raided Cannabis Culture locations in Toronto, Hamilton and Peterborough. Many reopened within days.

Canadian task force wants to legalize pot

Canadian task force wants to legalize pot

The Columbian / Associated Press

TORONTO — Canada’s government said Tuesday it would study a federal task force’s recommendation that Canadians over 18 years old be allowed to buy marijuana for recreational purposes and would announce new laws in the spring that would legalize pot.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has long promised to legalize recreational pot use and sales. If passed, Canada would be the largest developed country to end prohibition of recreational marijuana. Voters in California, Massachusetts, Maine and Nevada voted Nov. 8 to approve the use of recreational marijuana, joining Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Alaska, where it had previously been legalized.

The marijuana task force report, headed by former Canadian Liberal Health Minister Anne McLellan, recommended that adults could carry up to 30 grams for recreational purpose and grow up to four plants. It also recommended that higher-potency pot be taxed at a higher rate than weaker strains. And said recreational marijuana should not be sold in the same location as alcohol or tobacco. Under the proposals, alcohol-free cannabis lounges would be allowed.

How Cannabis Helps Smart People Get Ahead In Life

How Cannabis Helps Smart People Get Ahead In Life

How Cannabis Chilled me out – Cannabis the Exit Drug

I’m going to tell you the story of how Reginald Reefer got into the entire drug game. When I was thirteen, I smoked my first joint. I liked it from the get go.

Then, after about a year or two, I started experimenting with other drugs. Now I know some people will look at this and say, “SEE, cannabis is a Gateway drug!” However, I’d respond with…I drank alcohol before I smoked weed…so if anything is to blame for the progression of drug use…it’s definitely alcohol.

The fact of the matter, is that unlike the gateway theory suggests…I wasn’t looking for a “better high”, I was rather curious about the different affect drugs could have on me. If weed makes me feel like this, what would MDMA feel like? What about cocaine? What about LSD?

You see, for me it wasn’t about getting ‘higher’ because the ‘weed high’ wasn’t enough. It was more about the curiosity of exploring my options and understanding that ‘weed was nothing like the PSA claimed it would be”, so perhaps they were lying about the rest.

Making a long story a bit shorter, eventually I had done a buffet of drugs and was getting high every week. Sometimes I’d go on month long benders, making cocktails of drugs from Peyote to Coke, mixing it with acid and whatever else I could find.

This stint lasted for about five years. After my father died, I realized that my current use of drugs was not the ‘healthiest’ thing I could be doing.

I entered into a short religious phase where I cut out all my drug use except the sanctioned alcohol.

When I realized Drugs were cognitive tools

It was after my religious stint that I re-introduced cannabis into my life. This time around, cannabis wasn’t a novelty action I used to ‘have fun’ but rather a tool for alternative cognition practices. I understood that drugs in general are just that…tools.

Eventually I re-introduced psychedelics into my life, yet with cannabis as my teacher, I now knew how to use it in moderation. No longer was I a weekend thrill seeker, but understood that if used correctly, I could vastly improve my cognitive functions.

You see, when you’re younger…you are in a constant state of self-realization. You explore options and do things in excess…testing your limitations.

However, with time you begin to learn what you can and cannot do. You learn the limitations of yourself and learn to regulate your consumption of other substances.

Everything can be “bad for you” when used in excess. Even weed can be ‘bad’ if you let it control you. However weed + age can equate to wisdom.

Cannabis helped me realize that I could use substances to empower my thought processes. I use things like LSD when I need to break paradigms or explore options from a different perceptive stance. Cannabis is my constant. I don’t smoke all day, in fact, I smoke a lot less than I used too when I was 15.

I don’t need to smoke that much anymore. I like to play around with my state of mind to achieve different things.

Thus, cannabis actually did the opposite for my drug use. I hardly drink alcohol anymore, I do psychedelics maybe once or twice a year, I smoke way less than a gram of cannabis per day. (I dab)

Not only has alcohol curbed my drug use in general, it has given me the perspective to utilize drugs in the right way.

Cannabis helping with Addiction

Now, straying away from the personal perception of how cannabis helped me, let’s stroll down the paths of history for a minute.

During alcohol prohibition, cannabis ‘clubs” were erected to help people wean off alcohol addiction. Many people use cannabis to break stronger addictions and even today we can see how cannabis legalization has affected prescription pain killer overdoses.

This indicates that cannabis is indeed an exit drug or at least can be. We have to understand that drug use has a lot to do with your personality as opposed to your physical response to any drug. The idea that cannabis leads to harder drugs have been disproved a long time ago, in fact, the opposite might be true.

I was a crazed youth, seeking drug filled adventures for many years, however with time and understanding I discovered that there was a better way. My teacher; Cannabis, has helped me come to the right conclusions over the years.

My question to you guys is the following; has cannabis chilled you out? How has cannabis taught you to be a more responsible drug user? I’d love to hear about it so leave your comments below.

Rituals - 1

Why a Cannabis Ritual?

People engage in all kinds of different, personal rituals every day. Even the smallest rituals are paramount to how we function. If we didn’t practice a daily personal hygiene ritual, we’d probably offend others. Likewise, if we chose to ignore the ritual of waking up at a decent hour and getting dressed, we’d feel uncomfortable and exposed.

Recent research shows that rituals, in all their forms, may be more rational than they appear. Combine this with Cannabis (known for its stress-relieving and anti-anxiety effects) and you can enjoy the benefits of both as part of your wellness routine.

Setting Your Intentions

So let’s consider using cannabis as a ritual act. Allow the ritual act of consuming cannabis with intention help bring meaning to everyday life. In the moment it takes to reflect and re-centre yourself before meditating, or smoking a bowl, give yourself a positive intention. Let go of what no longer serves you on an exhale and on the next inhale, hold it and know that you’re bringing happiness to yourself.

Rituals - 2

The Vedic priests believed consuming bhang (a marijuana infused almond milk drink) without intent was foolish.  If you enjoy enjoying the ‘wake and bake’ ritual, then set an intention that will resonate with you for the rest of the day. A quick simple one from A Course in Miracles is, “What will you have me do, what will you have me say and to whom?” Cannabis is known to allow you to see things from a different perspective, and this can set a positive and receptive tone for you to enjoy the rest of your day. At the end of the day, take time to let go and better understand any problems or emotions that you felt. Why not think about the intent of your action and manifest some good, while you’re loading up your evening bowl? For some, this is the only action or time to reflect.

Rituals help us stay grounded. A practice that is repeated over and over becomes easier as time passes and gives us normality. When everything seems to go wrong and off kilter, a ritual helps you pull back into yourself and become centred as you give your focus to one action and nothing else. There are plenty of times when I forget my practices and have to start over. I often have to refocus and remind myself that these seemingly silly rituals will bring me balance. Rituals take time, that’s the point, but during that time you’re able to reset and recenter. While they make take time to get used to and time out of our already busy lives, rituals bring us a brief moment of simplicity and allow a shift to occur within ourselves when needed.

File_000 (3)

Sativa or Indica?

There are many cannabis strains you can use in your ritual. In small doses, indicas won’t be overwhelmingly sleepy. Indicas are best for night reflections and for those who suffer from high levels of anxiety. Sativas are more for creative or outdoor activities during the day but be warned that some strains can be overly energetic and racy. Hybrids are a perfect combination, some leaning more sativa or indica heavy, so ask your budtender what they’d recommend for you specifically. I enjoy high CBD strains because they elevate pain but for some it makes them tired. Everyone is different, ask questions and research what consumption methods are right for you.

I have a simple ritual I use for very bad days, or days when I’m overwhelmed and need to get my head straight. As someone who is very accustomed to the depths of my subconscious, I’ve had to learn a few tricks over the years to stop myself from sinking, but it may take some time to get used to.

Rituals - 4

First, I intentionally load my pipe or vaporizer while I think about what I’m doing and why. Why am I smoking? How can cannabis help me? Do I need to let go of something that’s holding me back from my fullest potential? Then, I focus on the question as I inhale and exhale.

Remember, not everything is going to go away after you finish. Acknowledge any feelings that come up even if they’re tears, pain or a soft sense of peace. There’s no one to judge you on your response because it’s needed in order to move past what’s pulling you down. A ritual has many components, so feel free to incorporate this quick ritual into your own practice.

    Marijuana brownies can easily be prepared from the comfort of your kitchen. For the best tasting cannabis brownies, make sure you have cannabutter with you or maybe you could choose pot-infused butter. Cannabis oil can also be used. For this pot brownies recipe, you will need 2 ½ grams of marijuana per serving, Canola oil and boxed brownie mix. For the full pack of boxed brownies, a ½ ounce of marijuana ground completely into powder will be needed. Use a coffee grinder or a marijuana grinder to make this powder. To get started, add the already ground marijuana and oil into a pot. Simmer this mixture on low temperature for a period between 2- 4 hours. Stir quite often using a wooden spoon during the simmering process.  Strain the oil mix using a weed filter and use it following the instructions on the brownies box.

Repeat the microwaving and the stirring in intervals of 15 seconds until they are all melted and smooth. Allow the mixture to settle until the chocolate gets to room temperature.  Next, dip your berries into the already melted chocolate. Set your berries on a parchment paper and leave them for about half an hour. As you have seen, your strawberries don’t take too long to prepare. This is one of the best cannabis recipes that you would love to prepare from the comfort of your kitchen.

Marijuana tea gives you a chance to enjoy another easy weed recipe. Marijuana is an herb, just like tea and can also be made into a hot drink.

You need to be patient to get a good marijuana extract for your tea. You will really love it. Next, add a table spoonful of cannabutter or regular butter. Your drink is now ready for drinking. You can choose how you want to take it, either cold or hot. The choice is all yours.
