Re: “'Stories from the Underground' Documents Cannabis History

It was a good event except at the end of the night, it was said that all the donations were stolen! Now I want to see an investigation into this incident.

Re: “Lower Cannabis Taxes Will Be an Option on Oakland's November Ballot

This was really helpful as I am filling out my ballot. I teach US Government at Tech and I'll share this with the class as they fill out their mock ballots this week. Thanks for breaking it down in a straightforward way.

Re: “Is Vaping Cannabis Safe?

My wish, Hope, prayer. Is that I can stay as far away from people like Sherry Smith as possible.. As a child growing up in the smoking age I put up with second hand smoke on a daily basis.. Never complained never bothered me. If it does go somewhere else and leave people alone. Its a free country if you don't like someones smoke go somewhere else. don't be a little baby and complain. I'm not a cigg smoker but I believe in peoples rights. I feel bad for people that require medical cannabis and have to deal with people like Sherry who want them barred from buildings.. What a disgrace. People suck.

Re: “The Cannabis Strains of Summer (for Every Tolerance Level)

Hi, I just want to ask if someone has any idea on which marijuana strain would be very effective when it comes with anxiety attacks and sleep disorder?
I've been suffering for almost 2 months now and mostly can't sleep properly at night. I refrain my self on taking meds coz it seems doesn't work for me. So I started reading some alternative way for my problem and came across this article about querkle from and how it could help you relax but the problem is I don't smoke. But then I also found out that you can also make drinks or tea and even muffin/cake as an option aside from smoking it. Why they can't just simply make a pill out of marijuana if they say it could really be some help? Or maybe there are that I'm not aware of. If this is true I would gladly want to hear any of your experience and thoughts regarding this. Thanks in advance

Re: “What Is Smoakland?

Tobacco billboards were banned in 1999. Why does cannabis get a pass? Also, that 71.6% statistic is a joke. I'm sure tons of kids see these.

Re: “What Is Smoakland?

That sign makes me feel ill - and its hideous '80s-style design is only part of the problem. is it really legal to advertise cannabis and not cigarettes?

Re: “Cannabis Businesses Describe 'Absolute Chaos' in Light of New State Rules

Business as usual. The regulations were written by the big growers and big companies. They are designed to push out the small companies and allow market domination by a few.

Re: “Magnolia Oakland Plans Major Expansion

I am very concern of seeing condiments for food with cannabis as they might end on the hands of babies or any kid. Food to go with condiments infused with cannabis is a no no. Never safe for a child.

Re: “The Best Marijuana Strains of Summer 2015

I like my sativa based purple, sour diesel, & blue cheese. On the other hand who cant say no to some girl scout cookies.
Speaking of the government and cannabis here is a scary fun fact: Cannabis and its chemical properties are actually patented, and by whom you may ask? The feds. Some how in this country we allowed plants and its chemicals to be patented. Best strains off all time

Re: “Cannabis Tax Relief, Workers' Rights Bills Fail in Sacramento

Quote of the day: killing that Bill (Republican-sponsored AB 3157) is a big win for the black market.

Re: “Cannabis Tax Relief, Workers' Rights Bills Fail in Sacramento

Also the Dept. of Justice didn't oppose the bill, they just put a high price tag on implementing it, as did other public agencies, which helped send the bill to Appropriations.

Re: “Cannabis Tax Relief, Workers' Rights Bills Fail in Sacramento

Twelve states (not 22) have similar workplace protections. Also, the main opposition to the bill came from construction trade unions and contractors.

And it would be more accurate to say, "But employers need TO ADOPT a modern test for marijuana impairment before they can grant workplace rights to cannabis patients." (Because the test exists, e.g. The Alertmeter…)

Re: “Cannabis Tax Relief, Workers' Rights Bills Fail in Sacramento

This is nice clear summary of the pending cannabis legislation. I hope that you will publish an update after this session ends.
