Legal marijuana’s place in college education is still limited, but it’s starting to pay off for some University of Denver graduates.

The university’s Sturm College of Law and its media and journalism programs have offered classes centered on legal weed since 2015, with the Daniels School of Business following suit in 2017. And now, alumni are beginning to make their marks on the nation’s burgeoning industry.

Cannabis continues to gain influence, not only in new business ventures, but in college education, too. Just take a peak inside professor Paul Seaborn’s Business of Marijuana course, where students at the Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver took part in a potrepreneur pitch competition June 4.

Five teams of undergraduate and graduate DU students proposed new business ideas to a panel of cannabis industry judges comprised of Julie Berliner, founder and CEO of edible company Sweet Grass Kitchen, Mark Grindeland, CEO and co-founder of Coda Signature edibles and Carter Davidson, an executive at Vangst recruiting and staffing.

People want marijuana decriminalized in Santa Fe, at least that’s the message sent yesterday when two different advocacy groups submitted signatures to get the issue on the November ballot.
Both Progress New New Mexico and Drug Policy Action submitted signatures to the city clerk, who has to verify the signatures over the next ten days. If the groups meet the 5,763 needed signatures, they can get their measures on the November ballot. If they miss the mark, they will still have 90 days to collected the needed signatures to get it on the spring ballot.

Daniel Soligny.

Daniel Soligny had a good life, except for the whole health insurance thing. He didn’t have the most glamorous job, sure, but spending 14 hours a day on rollerblades at Sonic Beach Miami Gardens kept him active, and his girl, Jacqueline, was always by his side. Although he was 20 and she a young-looking 35, the couple was a psychic match — enjoying weekend outings to South Beach and goofing off.
Then he found out he had tumors on his testicles. Chemo? Nope. Cannabis? Yes. Read more over at the Broward-Palm Beach New Times.

The Clinic Colorado’s fifth annual charity golf tournament, which benefits the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s Colorado-Wyoming chapter, has doubled in size from previous years, but organizers say it’s already sold out.
Although the Clinic hasn’t announced how much money it’s raised from participants and sponsors, the total’s at least $32,500 thanks to 250 people paying $130 apiece to play. That comes on top of $15,000 raised earlier this spring for the 2014 Walk MS event in City Park and more than $100,000 donated by the medical pot shop since the tournament’s 2009 debut.

Arkansas AG Dustin McDaniel

Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel ruled that a marijuana legalization measure that repeals state laws on marijuana possession, use and cultivation for being too vague.
This is the second time that McDaniel has rejected the ballot proposal. And no, he is not unclear as to what “repealing all laws related to cannabis” means, nor does he seem to have a personal grudge against pot. Basically, the proposal just doesn’t make sense.

The collectives will be limited to a strip along State Route 525 in Mukilteo

​On a 5-2 vote Monday night, the Mukilteo City Council approved an ordinance allowing collective medical marijuana gardens in the Snohomish County, Washington city.

The move is significant, according to patient activist Philip Dawdy of the Washington Cannabis Association and 4 Evergreen Group, because it makes the city the first in Snohomish County to allow for collective gardens. Other cities in the county, including Everett, Lake Stevens and Marysville, have banned them.
