Here's your headlines: 1) It looks like San Jose wants to go to war with its cannabis patients. According to local dispensary operator Dave Hodges, yesterday, "the council moved forward with the second reading of the new Medical Marijuana Regulations (Title 6 & Title 20). The ordinance will go into effect in thirty days. In addition to [imposing] unreasonable conditions and a limit of ten [clubs], this ordinance will require all clubs in the city to shut down starting October 27, 2011." Can the clubs unite and fight? Or will they fall divided? Meeting tonight: Citizens Coalition for Patient Care, 6 p.m. 240 South Market St., San Jose

2) In Kern County, supervisors struggle to contend with an organized resistance to bad cannabis law.

3) Former DEA head and executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance debate drug policy.

4) Four people get weak weed from Uncle Sam. What kind of message does this send to our children?!

5) Cannabis-infused Alaskan King Crab from Chef Chris Lanter, head chef of Cache Cache, Aspen’s hottest five-star restaurant, in the new issue of High Times Medical Marijuana. “The issue also profiles [Oakland's] Scott Van Rixel, a master chocolatier with a successful artisanal chocolate company called Xocolatl, who just last year decided to branch out into making medical cannabis infused bars in California under the all-new label Bhang Chocolate and now operates one of the best known brands in the dispensaries."

6) Rick Santorum attacks Rick Perry on states' rights to medical cannabis. Good luck with that.

7) Are medical cannabis patients and the NRA about to become allies? Probably.

8) Hemp coming to Russia! According to Russian news outlet RT.com, Federal Drug Control Agency head Viktor Ivanov "says such a move would follow the international trend for an industrial cannabis comeback. The European Union is investing in cannabis cultivation in Kazakhstan, while China, which already holds world leadership in the industry, plans to increase production six-fold by 2020."

9) “America's oldest medical marijuana collective” will host its annual community appreciation event in Santa Cruz on Saturday, October 22 from 12-5 p.m. in San Lorenzo Park. The 9th Annual WAMMFEST is a free, public event, featuring live music from headliners MOONALICE, plus Bayonics and the Green Lights, with an afterparty to follow.
