Cannabis users across the state of Washington sparked up to celebrate the passage of Initiative 502 last year, which legalized the personal use and possession of up to one ounce of marijuana for anyone over the age of 21. I-502 still prohibits the consumption of marijuana in public places, and driving under the influence of marijuana, but along with the state of Colorado, Washington seems poised to blaze a new trail for marijuana legalization.

Think differently (about cannabis).

Note: if you live in a place where growing marijuana isn’t legal, taking pictures with your cell phone or iPad and leaving them on there might not be a great idea.
Back in February, police recovered a stolen iPad. Good job, right? Wrong. To find out the owner of the iPad, we’re assuming they went through it. Now, that might be overlooked if they only used the information for the intended purpose.

On Sunday, a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter notified dispatch of a high-speed boat cooking it north just 90 miles west of San Nicholas Island, which is just over 100 kilometers southwest of Los Angeles.
A Coast Guard ship in the area straight lined it to the scene. But by that time the smuggler had ditched his load and hightailed it out of there, leaving more than 6,500 pounds of seeded, compressed pot floating on the waves in the pacific. In total, 245 bales of pot wrapped in plastic were recovered.

Last weekend, residents of Saulsville, Pretoria, South Africa discovered a field of cannabis – called “dagga” in South Africa – growing in a field behind a community park.
But instead of calling the police, who would have destroyed the field, word spread quickly to the ganja smokers of the neighborhood who turned out in droves to harvest the buds before officials could do anything about it.

Apparently growing vegetables in your basement in Leawood, Kansas is reason enough for the local police to raid your house, hold you and your family at gunpoint and accuse your 13-year-old son of using marijuana. At least, that’s the message sent after Johnson County Sheriff deputies blew in the door of the Harte family home last year looking for marijuana.

Massachusetts medical marijuana laws passed last November allows for up to 35 nonprofit dispensaries around the state, and draft regulations to guide the industry were just released today.
Among the proposed rules is the determination that a 60-day supply of marijuana can be up to ten ounces per patient and that all dispensaries would have to grow their own cannabis.

Concord, California.

City leaders in Concord, Calif. clearly don’t appreciate the bountiful Northern California sun as much as everyone else does. On Tuesday, city council unanimously decided that medical marijuana patients can no longer harness the power of the sun in their own backyards to grow their medicine. Instead, they’ll have to move them indoors under artificial, watt-sucking lights.
Apparently nobody told City Council that being environmentally conscious is kind of a big deal in Northern California.
