Holder Optimistic About Legalization

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said he’s “cautiously optimistic” about the future of legalized marijuana in Washington State and Colorado. It was yet another sign of the rapid change in outlook, even at the federal level, toward pot policy in America. But Holder, who spoke to the Huffington Post in April, said he couldn’t predict where things would stand 10 years from now. “I’m not just saying that,” Holder said. “I think it’s hard...

Legalization Group Targets Texas

Hope springs eternal. A group of marijuana activists in Texas are taking on the next-to-impossible: Turning the Lone Star State legal.

For some, it’s a mystical alignment of faith and fun. For others, it’s a tortured choice between tradition and the rare chance to openly live a life they usually have to hide.

MMJ Vending Machine Unveiled in Col.

It’s the dream only a lazy stoner could love. And it’s finally come true. A group of marijuana entrepreneurs unveiled Colorado’s first pot vending machine in April, opening the door to a future of semi-convenience, security, and lazy stoner jokes. They’re not using it yet, and it’s not quite as simple as you might think, but it’s still something to see. They call it the “ZaZZZ.” It was designed and built by Stephen Shearin’s company,...

Charges Dropped Against Deonte Thompson

Authorities dropped misdemeanor weed charges against Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Deonte Thompson in April, according to court records. Prosecutors in Alachua County, Fla., dropped the charges due to “insufficient evidence” after reducing them from a felony count earlier this year. Thompson was arrested Feb. 21 in Gainesville and charged with marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. When he was pulled over by...
