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....

 First Saliva Screening Roadside Test for Cannabis Approved in Canada



First Saliva Screening Roadside Test for Cannabis Approved in Canada
The quest for a cannabis breathalyzer to keep stoned drivers off the road is still meandering down its own long road with little to show for its journey.

Now, in Canada, which is about five weeks away from legalizing cannabis, the Justice Minister, Jody Wilson-Raybou....

 Too much of a good thing in Oregon as cannabis businesses adapt to flooded market


Bart Schaneman
Theres one major pain point for Oregon marijuana business owners that eclipses all others: a supply glut caused by too much cannabis and insufficient demand. The surplus of wholesale cannabis has shifted the dynamics of the states MJ industry. It has forced growers to cut costs and eliminate staff. And it has created a buyers market for retailers stocking up on low-priced product. It used to be a growers market, said Shane McKee, chief cultivator of vertically integrated company Shango, based in the Portland area. But with todays supply glut, the leverage has shifted in f....
