World’s first cannabis vending machine unveiled in Colorado

A dispensary in Colorado is making the most of the state’s recent legalisation of cannabis by introducing the world’s first marijuana vending machines.

The machine, called ZaZZZ, will work in a similar way to cigarette machines but includes new technology that requires would-be tokers to scan their driving licence (or other, similar documentation) before they can access the goods.

The Common Link Between Breast Milk, Cannabis and Tea

April 9, 2014 | What do breast milk, tea and a cannabis cigarette have in common? As mind-boggling as it may seem, quite a bit. In addition to providing a soothing sense of comfort and bliss, they also facilitate in stimulating and nourishing the endocannabinoid system, which plays a significant role in a variety of physiological processes.

Cannabinoids are naturally occurring chemical compounds that promote homeostasis by interacting with specific receptors found in the human body. Thus far, two receptors have been determined – CB1 and CB2. This intricate system of cannabinoids, receptors and other binding substances manufactured in the brain is called the endocannabinoid system.

Canada's Medical Marijuana Rules Are Made to Be Broken

Last week, both Tweed and Mettrum had loads of marijuana seized from the same Kelowna airport. Media reports described Tweed’s shipment as 55 varieties of “plants, seeds and in-production plant materials” from multiple growers across BC.

Licensed Producers are desperate for product, since Health Canada has been so slow in processing their applications that most of them haven’t had time to grow any of their own cannabis.

Marijuana Medicine's Near-Miraculous Healing Powers Require the Whole Plant—Not Just One Oil Extract

Ever since marijuana was banned by the federal government in the 1930s, proponents of prohibition have insisted that cannabis must remain illegal to protect America’s children. “Protecting the children” continues to be the calculated cornerstone of anti-marijuana propaganda, the cynical centerpiece of the war on drugs.

How ironic, then, that today thousands of families in the United States are desperately seeking cannabis remedies to protect their children from deadly diseases. The erstwhile “Assassin of Youth” has become the savior for kids with catastrophic seizure disorders and other life-threatening conditions.

Brutal press release from Health Canada shows their disdain for cannabis medicines and patients in need

March 14, 2014, In a notice posted on their website earlier today, Health Canada shows why they cannot be trusted to act in the best interest of Canadians who need cannabis-based medicines.

The notice was issued on a Friday afternoon so that it would not get much media coverage. But patients are already in an uproar as it has spread through social media.

The essence of the press release is that patients who had been growing their own cannabis are now legally obligated to send Health Canada a letter confirming they have destroyed all their home-grown medicine by mixing it with kitty litter, and also killed all of their plants.

Medical marijuana stores blocked from tax breaks

The roughly 2,500 medical marijuana dispensaries in the USA pay taxes to local, state and federal governments.

But they can't take the same federal tax breaks that other small businesses take.
