In Vermont, 'Women of Cannabis' Cultivate Ideas and Relationships - Cannabis News

Women can have a special place in Vermont's cannabis industry, according to Kathryn Blume, the content and events manager for cannabis advocacy group Heady Vermont.

After all, only female cannabis plants produce the buds that can be smoked, which gives women an "innate connection" with the plant, she explained.

Blume aimed to foster that connection with "Women of Cannabis," a networking event meant to encourage entrepreneurship ahead of recreational marijuana legalization in Vermont on July 1.

Athletes are Leading Cannabis Into the Mainstream - Cannabis News

Across the United States — and among former professional athletes, especially — people are telling stories of how cannabis curtailed their epileptic seizures, helped manage their chronic pain, and gave them their lives back.

The bottle stared at Cullen Jenkins for two weeks untouched on his nightstand, and he stared back at it.

“I thought I was going to be high,” Jenkins says. “I thought I was going to be just tripping the same things as weed. But it wasn’t anything like that. It’s more of a mellow, calming, smooth feeling. I felt pretty good.”

Within just two months of trying Fresh Farms CBD Oil, Jenkins is already a cannabis evangelist. This past NFL season was his first out of football.

'We can’t let this pass us by': Here's how a Native American tribe in Oregon sees hope with marijuana - Cannabis News

Spearheaded by younger tribal members who are eager to join the legalization movement sweeping the country, the tribe has taken steps to become the first vertically integrated Native American pot operation — growing pot on the reservation and selling it off-site.

A weathered marquee near the center of this small Native American reservation perched on the high desert plateaus of central Oregon reads "Every Day Is Another Chance," offering a sense of optimism that can be hard to find among anybody who lives here.

The once-bustling lumber mill that sliced and shipped Douglas fir throughout the Pacific Northwest closed two years ago when the machines got too old and expensive to replace. The tribe tried a casino, but it was located half an hour from the highway, and nobody came.

Native American tribes cut out of California market might grow their own - Cannabis News

American Indian tribes that say they have been cut out of California’s legal marijuana market have raised the possibility of going their own way by establishing pot businesses outside the state-regulated system that is less than two months old.

The tribes floated the idea of setting up rival farms and sales shops on reservations after concluding that rules requiring them to be licensed by the state would strip them of authority over their own lands and their right to self-governance.

The possibility of the tribes breaking away from the state-run system is one more challenge for California as it attempts to transform its longstanding medicinal and illegal marijuana markets into a unified, multibillion-dollar industry.

Bros and blunts are cool, but ganja's more of a girl thing these days. With cannabis America's fastest-growing industry, and Los Angeles the capital of that industry, women are determined not to be left out.

From pot princesses to power women who love weed, a handful of L.A. ladies have taken it upon themselves to form social clubs, throw parties and host educational events to empower women in cannabis.

The movement is about providing an alternative space where women can feel comfortable, and where they don't need to compete with men, or even with one another.

Mr. Steves Goes to Washington, to Talk Drug Policy - Cannabis News

PBS travel guru Rick Steves appeared in front of Congress to tell Jeff Sessions his idea of pot users is wrong – and the Senate is moving on it.

In the minds of many American small government supporters, Europe is the quintessential nanny state – a place where big government intrudes on personal choices to protect citizens from themselves.

But when it comes to regulating cannabis, it's Europe that values personal responsibility over prohibition.

Is 2018 the year for medical marijuana? Odds are better in Missouri than Kansas - Cannabis News

Christine Gordon is battling the Kansas Legislature for access to medical marijuana for her 6-year-old daughter, Autumn, who has a form of epilepsy that leaves her with persistent seizures that have not responded to traditional medicines.

Lenexa resident Christine Gordon can’t stop her daughter’s seizures with any legal product. She’s tried.

Gordon’s daughter, Autumn, is 6 now, but is developmentally like a 2-year-old because of the seizures that started shortly after she was born.

Autumn has a type of epilepsy called Dravet syndrome that so far has resisted all conventional medical treatments. Gordon wants Autumn to be able to try an oil derived from cannabis that, in states where it’s legal, has helped some kids have fewer seizures.

Rick Steves Urges Vermont to 'Take the Next Step' in Weed Legalization - Cannabis News

If you're only familiar with his travel show, "Rick Steves' Europe," you might not guess that the mild-mannered PBS personality is one of America's most prominent advocates for marijuana legalization.

Indeed, the affable TV host and guidebook author has made legal weed a personal crusade, personally donating hundreds of thousands of dollars of his own money to legalization efforts across the country, including in his home state of Washington.

But his push for legalization in the U.S. isn't rooted in a particular personal affinity for kind bud.

Rather, his stance on marijuana stems from his extensive travels overseas and the "pragmatic harm reduction" approach that many European countries take towards the drug.
