 High Times Continues to Make History With Initial Public Offering



Since 1974, High Times has been the original voice in cannabis. Now, they are doing an IPO for the first time ever.
You may have heard, but the iconic and steadfast stoner culture cannabis platform High Times is now doing an IPO initial public offering and accepting investments for their stock.

I think we can all agree that High Times has hosted some of the most culturally influential cannabis events with their Cannabis Cup festival series, so it was exciting to hear that they are expanding the series this year and....

 Trump Administration Secretly Plotting New War Of Words On Marijuana Policy

Shadowy Marijuana Policy Coordination Committee Seeks To Derail Past, Future Legislative Reforms

In response to this revelation, NORML Political Director Justin Strekal said: These are the death rattles of marijuana prohibition. Those who seek to maintain the oppressive policies of cannabis criminalization are grasping at straws in their effort to undo the public policy progresses that have now been enacted in a majori....

 Bipartisan Clean Slate Act Introduced in Congress



Bipartisan Clean Slate Act Introduced in Congress
Introduced by Congresswoman Lisa Blunt Rochester D-Delaware and Congressman Rod Blum R-Iowa, along with 22 co-sponsors, the Clean Slate Act seeks to seal the records for marijuana charges one year after the sentence is completed. The Clean Slate Act is important legislation, says Washington DC-based NORML, as it would ease the burden of those unjustly suffering the collateral consequences resulting from cannabis prohibition. Having been arrested for mere marijuana possession does not make one a bad person, but rather a victim of a cruel public policy. Those that fall into....

First Saliva Screening Roadside Test for Cannabis Approved in Canada
