In May, as we’ve reported, Michael McCarron was arrested on a methamphetamine charge, even though he’s never knowingly possessed the substance, because a small amount of marijuana in his possession registered positive for meth according to two field-test kits known as NIKs. Now, an examination at a lab shows that the cannabis wasn’t laced with meth after all.

After Attorney General Jeff Sessions told an assembly of the country’s attorneys general that state marijuana laws are in violation of federal law, Colorado Attorney General Cynthia Coffman came out fighting for this state’s rights.
Coffman, a Republican, said that while the Trump administration’s intentions regarding marijuana are unclear, she plans to uphold the Colorado Constitution — including Amendment 64, which legalized the recreational sale and use of marijuana in 2012.
When people first consider cannabis as a pain remedy, they often don’t know where to start — and they have lots of questions. Fortunately, Lynn Honderd, CEO of Mary’s Medicinals, who co-founded the company in 2013, has lots of answers. We recently sat down with Honderd to talk about Mary’s Medicinals and why cannabis is helpful for so many medical patients.

Update: In January, we reported about surveys being sent to prosecutors and law enforcement officials in Kansas by attorney general Derek Schmidt in an effort to determine how Colorado cannabis was negatively impacting the good people of that state; our previous coverage has been incorporated into this post.
Nine months later, Schmidt has delivered the fruit of this labor — “‘Legalization’ of Marijuana in Colorado: The Impact on Kansas,” a report on view below. And a summary of the results suggests that the quality of cannabis available in the state has improved significantly thanks to Kansas’s proximity to Colorado.
Announcing yet another lawsuit filed against a sketchy local business selling the dangerous synthetic drug “kush” under the counter, city, county and state officials gathered Thursday to renew calls to end the drug’s epidemic.
On Tuesday, the City of Houston and the Texas Attorney General’s Office busted Spice Boutique with a deceptive trade lawsuit, seeking an immediate temporary restraining order against the business to stop it from selling any more kush. Spice Boutique may also have to pay hundreds of thousands in damages, depending on what a potential jury may find appropriate as punishment.
In addition, two men in their forties who ran the operation, Minh Dang and Tuan Dang, have been arrested and charged with engaging in organized criminal activity. Police recovered 30 pounds of illegal narcotics and thousands of dollars in gold during the investigation, which began in June just after 16 people, many of them homeless, overdosed on kush in Hermann Park. It was an incident that prompted Mayor Sylvester Turner to start cracking down on kush in Houston.
