How has Marijuana Legalization Impacted Colorado Economically?

It’s been a little over four years since recreational cannabis sales began in Colorado. A lot has happened in those four years, and the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City recently released a report that looks at the economic impact cannabis sales have had on Colorado. An important thing to keep in mind is that some 65% of all jurisdictions in Colorado still do not allow recreational or medical sales, which means that legal marijuana cannot be bought in most places in the state (around 27% of jurisdictions allow both rec and med sales). That makes the growth of...

Cannabis Legalization in Michigan Looks More Than Likely to Happen in 2018

In 2016, Michigan was very close to being one of the states that got the opportunity to vote on whether to legalize cannabis for adults 21 and older – but due to a change in the signature certifying process, the ballot initiative (led by MILegalize) never reached voters. This year, things appear to be going better for a group of activists who are proposing the Michigan Regulation and Taxation of Marihuana Act, and who just recently turned in their signatures. The Bureau of Elections announced that they estimated that organizers collected 277,370 signatures that were able to be validated,...

New Survey from Colorado Focuses on Driving Under the Influence of Marijuana

One of the biggest debates that swirl around the concept of cannabis legalization is how it will affect the number of people who are driving while under the influence of marijuana. Because of this, the amount of studies on the subject seems to be steadily increasing. A new survey out of Colorado – a state with legal recreational cannabis sales – sheds some light on how people there feel about “stoned driving” and just how dangerous it is. The Colorado Department of Transportation conducted a survey of some 11,000 anonymous drivers, marijuana users and non-users both included, to get...

Ways to Come Down from Too Much THC

When it comes to consuming an intoxicating substance of any kind, especially for recreational purposes, you need to be aware of how much you are consuming and what your personal limit may be. In much the same way as how some people can drink a six-pack of beer without getting drunk and some can’t even finish one, there are also people who can smoke bowl after bowl of cannabis and never feel too high, where others may get too high after only consuming a relatively small amount of marijuana. Of course, the only way to learn your own tolerance...

Can Employers Still Drug Test if Cannabis is Legal in My State?

The spread of marijuana legalization, while ameliorating many problems, still leaves some unsolved. This is the case when it comes to employers who require that potential employees take a drug screen test. Most people would agree that looking for things like heroin and cocaine use can be valuable to an employer, but what about cannabis? As more states legalize some form of cannabis use and possession every year, gray areas are created where those looking for work can be confused and unaware of drug testing policies. If you live in a state where even recreational use and sales are...
