For more than half a decade, administrators at CU Boulder have done everything possible to ensure that the university no longer appears among the top ten on the Princeton Review‘s annual list of reefer madness schools.

And once again, they’ve failed. As usual, CU Boulder is on the 2016 roster — and it hasn’t disappeared from the upper ranks of Princeton Review’s party schools roster, either.

The narks of the social media have reared their ugly heads and set their crossed-eyed sights on purging Americans’ newsfeeds of vital information regarding the medicinal properties of marijuana. To be more specific, there is some meathead Ivy Leaguer who considers himself an “Internet Deputy,” fighting from behind his computer to shutdown an established Facebook group dedicated to spreading the good word of patients medicating with cannabis oil.

Denver on 4/20.

One of the biggest arguments for the passage of Colorado’s Amendment 64 was the potential tax revenue limited recreational marijuana sales would generate — and last week, the Denver City Council Government and Finance Committee met to discuss how to spend the city’s share of money.
City Budget Manager Brendan Hanlon and Executive Director of Marijuana Policy Ashley Kilroy outlined a plan proposed by Mayor Michael Hancock that would divvy up the estimated $3.5 million Denver is due to receive this year from retail marijuana taxes.

South Salem High School in Oregon recently forced one of its seniors to admit to being under the influence of marijuana, but even though he was not, and has since provided school officials with a negative drug test to prove it, the school still refuses to grant him permission to participate in the graduation ceremony.

Minnesota state Rep. Diane Loeffler.

About the only thing people can agree on when it comes to the medical marijuana debate is that the federal government isn’t helping. Many of the disputes at the state level wouldn’t be necessary if the Drug Enforcement Administration would reconsider its classification of the plant as a Schedule One narcotic and expedite, rather than hold up, serious research on its medicinal value.
Troubled by this, Minnesota state Rep. Diane Loeffler (DFL-Minneapolis) introduced a resolution Thursday that calls upon President Obama and Congress to force those federal agencies into action.

Michele Leonhart telling Congress that pot is as bad as heroin or meth in 2012.

DEA administrator Michele Leonhart has made it clear she doesn’t like marijuana. This is a person who sat with a straight face and told the U.S. Congress that she didn’t think meth or heroin was any worse than marijuana.
So it should come as no surprise that she (and her ilk at the DEA) would freak out over the fact that some people have chosen to break the law and travel out of Colorado with marijuana – like they’ve been doing since well before Amendment 64 passed, making the possession of up to an ounce legal in the state.

Hemp growing in Colorado.

Thirteen producers have registered to legally grow hemp in Colorado in the month since registration began, according to the state Department of Agriculture. However, those thirteen producers hold a total of twenty registrations, as several of them are registered to grow in more than one location or for more than one purpose. Ten of the registrations are for commercial purposes, while the other ten are for research and development. The Denver Westword spoke with three producers, who told the paper about their plans for planting marijuana’s sober stepsister.

Tuesday marked one of the best of times for marijuana reform in the nation’s capital of Washington D.C., and one of the worst of times.
It truly seemed to be a tale of two cities yesterday as the local District council voted 10-1 to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of weed, while right across town federal U.S. lawmakers were battling with the Chief Deputy of the DEA over anti-weed talking points as tired as most of the cranky old men arguing.

A bill that could legalize medical use of marijuana in Minnesota undergoes its first test this morning. It’s scheduled for conversation at the House Health and Human Services Committee, and both sides of the debate have begun preparing their people.
At the moment, the list of speakers remains hush-hush as committee administrators want to avoid the possibility that either side will try to stack the room. It’ll be made public about two hours before the meeting. Minneapolis City Pages has the complete story.
