Ohio has got to have the worst marijuna legalization effort the world has ever seen. They want a monopoly that locks out independent owners, growers, distributiors, and sellers. They are run by outsiders that seem to be motivated only by greed.


Now, they have put back the legalization cause by years by introducing a mascot that appeals to children.


What were they thinking?


Marijuana industry professionals have been striving to move the perception of cannabis from stoner to acceptable, and are working hard each day to have the public and government officials take us seriously as responsible business men and women.


We even removed Tommy Chung from our national lobbying efforts because he represented a "stoner" and the industry wants to be perceived as respectable.


Now the wealthy outsiders and backers o...

The sale of marijuana for recreational use began in Oregon on Thursday as it joined Washington state and Colorado in allowing the sale of a drug that remains illegal under U.S. federal law.


Oregon residents 21 years and older can buy up to a quarter-ounce (seven grams) of dried flowers at roughly 200 existing medical-use marijuana dispensaries as a new law took effect that backers hope will help curb a flourishing black market.


"You can get all the best strains from Oregon, which can make this into a top tourist spot," said Sue Vorenberg, a former cannabis industry worker and editor of the Cannabis Daily Record.


Voters in Oregon and Alaska last year approved marijuana use and possession in state-regulated frameworks. Retail pot shops, like those already operating in Washington state and Colorado, are...

Woody Taft and Dudley Taft Jr. are brothers and the great-great-grandnephews of President Taft, and they are ruining the marijuana industry in Ohio by trying to create a good, old-fashioned monopoloy - a stranglehold on the business that would make old President Taft proud.


Many people who generally support legalization have a problem with the group ResponsibleOhio that's pushing this initiative.


That's because it specifies just 10 locations in the state where growing pot would be allowed. And 10 groups of investors already have dibs on those sites.


These same investors are sinking $20 million into the campaign. So in essence, they are paying to try to amend the Ohio Constitution to grant themselves pot growing rights.


The investors in the for-profit ResponsibleOhio marijuana-legalization plan have so...

Near the heart of the remote Round Valley in Mendocino County, a back-to-the-land father and cannabis farmer is trying to get in on the ground floor of an industry that could skyrocket if recreational use of marijuana is legalized in California next year.


From his home office on a 20-acre pear ranch in Covelo, Joshua Artman launched what he calls a “farm-to-table” toolbox of smartphone applications designed to link small-scale marijuana farmers with patients, dispensaries and delivery services.


His free Loud Cannabis marijuana delivery app, voted “Best New Marijuana App” by CannaNews last month, links patients to delivery services in the Sacramento area, a market that has about 1,000 current users and, Artman said, was less saturated with startups than cities like San Francisco.


His newly launched Big...

The Green Exchange, Inc. (, has launched the world’s first online marijuana store. This innovative portal allows dispensaries or collectives to view available cannabis inventory, connect with growers, make purchases direct from the farm, or place a bid via a unique online auction platform.


The Green Exchange is free to use, and there are no contracts, fees or obligations. Dispensary owners or managers are invited to visit the website and try it out.


The new system also provides an automatic social media notification, so when a dispensary obtains cannabis, a message can automatically be sent to the dispensary’s Twitter and Facebook followers, notifying the
