In 2012, Washington and Colorado became the first states to legalize recreational marijuana. Since then, more states have followed. To date, 33 states have legalized the recreational or medicinal use of marijuana. Canada legalized recreational use nation-wide in October 2018.

As these legal markets emerge, investments are pouring in (by one estimate, consumer spending on marijuana will reach $23.4 billion in 2022), including two high-profile investments from Corona-maker Constellation Brands STZ, +0.55% and Marlboro-maker Altria MO, -0.81%

These investments from Big Alcohol and Big Tobacco might suggest the cannabis industry will come to be dominated by a few large producers and retailers. And certainly, some price-sensitive consumers will prefer the type of cheap, generic cannabis that large-scale producers specialize in.

Zac, the owner, is very knowledgable and helpful, and spent far more time explaining the health benefits of CBD than he did trying to sell me something. After about 3 weeks of twice daily drops, I’ve really noticed a difference. I’m killing it on the treadmill and bike now, and my ankles and knee feel great!read more

In a very strange story coming out of Houston, Texas, a man’s attempt to discreetly smoke some weed turned into an unexpected discovery of a neglected tiger. The event raises all sorts of questions. But so far, there do not seem to be very many answers.

Are You Seeing a Real Tiger or Are You Just Really Stoned?

The whole bizarre thing began when an unidentified man decided to smoke weed in an abandoned home located in southeast Houston.

Apparently he was looking for a private place to toke. And, at least initially, he thought he’d found an ideal location. But all that changed once he actually got inside the building.

That’s when he discovered that the home wasn’t abandoned.  Instead, he found a tiger in the building.

According to local news sources, the man quickly reported the tiger to the Houston Police Department. It appears that authorities did not initially believe the report.

“We questioned them as to whether they were under the effects of the drugs or they actually saw a tiger,” HPD’s Major Offenders, Livestock Animal Cruelty Unit Sergeant Jason Alderete told the media. “They saw a tiger in this building, this vacant house that’s obviously been abandoned

After a failed attempt to pass a law expanding medical marijuana access in 2017, Texas state representative Eddie Lucio III has proposed a fresh attempt at growing access to cannabis to Texans with qualifying medical conditions.

The Democrat from Brownsville introduced House Bill 1365 on Tuesday, which would expand 2015’s Compassionate Use Act (limited to low-THC cannabis for patients with intractable epilepsy) to include people with cancer, autism, other forms of epilepsy, and PTSD. The proposal would also open the kinds of cannabis permissible for use to include vaporization, oils, salves, and lotion. Smoking cannabis would still be illegal should the bill pass.

Not everyone was thrilled about the bill’s introduction. “In our efforts to keep the peace, deputy sheriffs routinely encounter persons who appear highly intoxicated on marijuana or marijuana-edible products,” Collin County Sheriff Jim Skinner of Sheriff’s Association of Texas wrote to KXAN in a statement indicating his group’s lack of support for the bill. “These individuals are generally a danger to themselves, and when driving, they are clearly a danger to others.”

But KXAN also interviewed four-time cancer survivor Mike Thompson, who has become a medical cannabis advocate after spending years on harmful painkillers to mitigate the

Here’s some good news about the labor market: The cannabis industry is creating jobs at a rapid pace, a new study from employment site Glassdoor finds.

The industry has more than 1,500 open jobs, a jump of 76 percent from a year earlier. The median salary is $58,511 annually, almost 11 percent higher than the U.S. median. More than half the jobs are for professional and technical workers, such as accountants and marketing experts.
The upshot: Cannabis businesses are creating new jobs for a wide range of professionals.

Although attitudes across the country appear to be changing and certain states have even decriminalized the behavior, marijuana possession arrests are still common in Texas and across the nation.

According to a recent study conducted by the American Civil Liberties Union, Texas actually has one of the highest arrest rates for marijuana possession in the country. In 2010, Texas was second in the nation in terms of the total number of people arrested for possessing marijuana. In total, over 74,000 people were arrested for marijuana possession in Texas that year.

In addition to the high arrest rate across Texas, the study also revealed a racial disparity among those who were charged with possession. In Texas, the study found that blacks were arrested twice as frequently as whites for marijuana possession. Although black people make up only around 12 percent of the population in Texas, the report found that they accounted for over 25 percent of the individuals who faced marijuana possession charges in 2010.

Despite this disparity, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration has reported that there is no disparity among the number of black and white people who use marijuana across the country.

Fight marijuana possession charges in Texas

In Texas, the ACLU reported that over $250,000,000 was spent on marijuana possession charges in 2010 – including each step of the process from the arrest to individuals who were incarcerated.

When someone faces charges of marijuana possession in Texas, it is critical to be aware of the potential penalties, which can be quite severe.

Under Texas law, individuals who are found in possession of two ounces or less of marijuana face misdemeanor charges that could lead to up to 180 days in jail and a fine of up to $2,000.

Texas, which leads the nation in marijuana-related arrests, may be on the verge of decriminalizing marijuana possession. While that’s a small move compared to what’s happening in other parts of the country, it’s significant in a conservative “red state” where marijuana laws have remained at War on Drugs levels.

Nothing is a given, but marijuana legalization advocates are optimistic that Texas marijuana law could change this year. Jax Finkel, executive director for Texas NORML (the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws), told the Dallas Morning News that she remembers when “legislators laughed” at the possibility of changing Texas marijuana laws.

Arrests in Texas

This news may come as a surprise to people — both those living in and outside of Texas. The state has hardly budged on changing marijuana laws, even as the other biggest state in the country — California, New York, Florida — have made changes.

Most people are used to Texas making headlines on the other side of the marijuana debate. For example, Texas holds the distinction of leading the nation in marijuana-related arrested. According to numbers from the FBI as reported in Salon, law enforcement in the Lone Star State made 64,949 marijuana arrests in 2016 — that’s 12 percent of the arrests across the entire nation.

Penalties can include a 180-day jail sentence and a $2,000 fine, along with the lifelong stigma of a criminal record. After the Texas Legislature failed to vote on decriminalizing marijuana in 2017,  judges in places such as Houston and San Antonio began offering defendants the chance to enter a pre-trial diversion program and avoid getting a criminal record.

But all this could possible change in 2019.

Proposed Changes

Both the state Republican Party and GOP Gov. Greg Abbott have endorsed changing Texas marijuana laws…Read More

Recreational Weed Legalization in TexasSupport Is Building For Recreational Marijuana Legalization in Texas

In 2015 a state representative by the name of David Simpson proposed a bill which would have legalized recreational weed in Texas. Simpson’s argument, simple? “I don’t believe that when God made marijuana, he made a mistake that government needs to fix.”

Although Texas lawmakers failed to pass marijuana legislation in 2017, support for legal cannabis seems to be building in the state. Advocates are optimistic that changes will come at the state’s next legislative session in 2019. Both political parties show support for reform of marijuana laws in their platforms.

At the recent GOP convention attendees approved a plank supporting “a change in the law to make it a civil, and not a criminal, offense for legal adults only to possess one ounce or less of marijuana for personal use.” Democrats also tweaked their platform to support full, statewide legalization. And democratic candidate for governor Lupe Valdez favors decriminalization and a serious discussion on full legalization.

Representative In Texas That Do Not Support Cannabis Gets The Peoples Boot

  • Pete Sessions, Texas

The people say enough. On election day, Tuesday November 6th 2018, the people of Texas removed Congressman Pete Sessions, the single greatest roadblock to federal marijuana law reform in the House of Representatives. Many good efforts in Congress to let US states to go ahead with legalization of marijuana have been thwarted by Sessions, who chairs a powerful committee.
