Then a pheno was taken to the East Coast where it was renamed Chem Dog. Then, as the story goes Chem Dog was taken to Cali and renamed OG Kush.'

Tough New LA Medical Pot Rules Poised to Backfire

'As politicians fumble for a way to clamp down on, snuff out or otherwise curtail the use of medical marijuana, the one thing that they have failed to consider is that the tougher the regulations they may pass, the more likely they are to spectacularly backfire. As a breed, politicians seem genetically incapable of spotting trends, and the trend in medical marijuana goes far beyond how many dispensaries the market can bear. The ball is slowly rolling toward full legalization, and every scheme to limit access to medical marijuana only adds to the momentum.'

Maryland Should (Cautiously) Legalize Medical Marijuana

'We certainly don’t want to see California’s experience replicated in Maryland, where a proposal to legalize marijuana for medical use is pending in the General Assembly this year. Opinion remains divided among the medical community over the potential therapeutic benefits and risks of medical marijuana. Yet there’s enough anecdotal and other evidence suggesting it can ease the suffering of some patients diagnosed with chronic and terminal illnesses that the idea shouldn’t be dismissed out of hand.'

Cannabis Cups Causing Controversy in Medical Marijuana States

'Predictably, the trajectory towards more compassionate marijuana policies brings people out of the shadows to celebrate this unique and infinitely useful plant. Unlike other medicines, cannabis comes in a thousand forms and lends itself to inquiry and discussion comparable to that of music, art, food and wine. Mix in the fact that a lot of people are able to appreciate it openly for the first time in their lives and it should come as no surprise that they're organizing events to see who can grow the best stuff.

Such contests generated controversy this week, raising the question of whether medical marijuana patients might be enjoying their freedom at the expense of further political progress. In Colorado, an upcoming event prompted a critical editorial questioning whether a pot contest serves any legitimate medical purpose. Meanwhile, in Michigan, a similar event was shut down after law-enforcement officials questioned its legality due to the state's tight restrictions on distribution by caregivers. Despite overwhelming public support for medical marijuana, the idea of patients convening to consume large quantities of top-grade medicine seems a bit of a stretch for some observers.'

That means she oversaw all those gratuitous raids on medical marijuana providers in California, continuing well into the Obama administration despite his promised change of course.'
