That popularity has been greatly aided by the proliferation of laws that allow it to be used as a medical treatment, not just in the U.S., but in other countries such as Canada, which legalized medical pot in…
You probably never called it “cannabis”: When you were growing up, you might have referred to it as “pot” or “weed” or “trees.” Whatever the name, the plant has become exponentially more mainstream since Colorado became the first state to pass laws allowing its recreational use in early 2014.

In the past few years, legal weed—or excuse me, cannabis—has become a $9.7 billion dollar industry, and is expected to reach nearly $25 billion by 2021.

Republicans in Colorado, where recreational marijuana use has been legal since 2012, weren’t prepared to put up with Attorney General Jeff Sessions today. Even if they were, their constituents wouldn’t stand for it.
You’ve likely heard the “I ate too much of a tasty, chocolatey edible and freaked the eff out” stories, whether from friends, family members, or from New York Times opinion columnist Maureen Dowd’s much-discussed coverage of her Colorado weed-tourist trip.
Two Amazon customers who purchased 27 gallon plastic storage bins earlier this year were surprised to find their UPS delivery weighed 93.5 pounds, approximately 65 pounds of which was tightly compacted bales of marijuana.
The feds began monitoring the potency of the nation’s pot supply in the ‘70s by drawing samples from stashes seized by law enforcement, and boy was it schwag.

Microdosing weed has become a minor trend with humans lately, but the science on its actual benefits is fairly shaky. Now, in a newly published study by a group of scientists in Germany, evidence shows that older mice may experience a reversal of brain aging and a restoration of the ability to learn.
While the tension between state and federal laws has created a difficult situation for cannabis users, there’s another factor that is complicating the changing attitude towards weed: hospitals.

2017 is bound to usher in an assortment of changes to our society. Most of them will be bad—we’re sure to suffer—but some will be good. For example, last night a Los Angeles-based hero vandalized, or rather modernized, the city’s iconic Hollywood sign to read “Hollyweed.”
You ever hit the blunt and start trying to figure out how getting high even works? How does anything work, really? Electricity? Computers? There are infinite mysteries to life, but some dank scientists are trying to figure out one of life’s most important questions—what does your brain look like when you get high?
The next time you find yourself at the end of a long, exhausting day at the office, what would you rather find in your jacket pocket? A fancy Montblanc writing instrument, or an herb-grinding, weed-dispensing pen that guarantees a super-relaxed evening? The answer is obviously the latter.
Some people choose to be buried with objects that are emblematic of what they cared for in life. In the case of a 2,400-year-old skeleton recently uncovered in northwest China, that guy was all about that good bud.
Have you ever tried to get something that you shouldn’t through US Customs? Frankly, I don’t know how people summon the nerve. Whether it’s illegal drugs, exotic animal meat, or counterfeit purses, people will try to smuggle just about anything. And everyone seems to have their own favorite hiding places. But if any…
