Three out of four doctors would prescribe medical marijuana to patients: Study


New York City Mayor Michael "Nanny" Bloomberg thinks medical marijuana is a hoax, but as far as I know he's never been to medical school, which is obvious based on the results of a new survey that found more than three-quarters of physicians would prescribe it to their patients if they could.

How is pot worse than fireworks?


The marijuana regulation law that Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper signed last month includes a quarter-ounce limit on pot purchases by visitors from other states. Colorado residents, by contrast, may buy up to an ounce at a time. As I have mentioned before, making the purchase limit hinge on residency seems inconsistent with Amendment 64, the marijuana legalization initiative that is now part of Colorado’s constitution. The quarter-ounce rule may also be vulnerable to challenge under the U.S. Constitution, since it discriminates against residents of other states.

But recently, through some breakthrough research, studies have shown that the substance Cannabidiol (CBD), also found in marijuana, has the potential to be a game changer in the fight against cancer.

Marijuana dispensaries sue Long Beach police for illegal, unconstitutional actions to put them out of business


We here at Natural News didn't think it would be long after voters in the states of Washington and Colorado approved measures legalizing possession and use of marijuana in November before the lawsuits would start.

Marijuana Legalization: Ending Drug War Will Save America $40 Billion Annually


As the "fiscal cliff" racket in Washington produced a predictable deal and compromised between both parties' favorite pet welfare programs, it was not a surprise that government spending and power took precedence over cutting spending. While someone like me could find trillions to cut in the federal budget, I wanted to offer a modest proposal that would both save money and enhance freedom: abolishing the drug war.

United Nations threatens Colorado, Washington state over marijuana decriminalization laws


Likely empowered by a U.S. administration that favors the kind of nanny state politics a ruling global entity would no doubt embrace, the head of the United Nations' International Narcotics Control Board feels comfortable telling federal officials they should move to challenge measures in Colorado and Washington that decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana for adults 21 and over.
