Some pak'd farmer/grower lady at the bar gave me some earlier, so if any of you people will be up here soon and somehow at my place without having walked by any of the stores, you can have it and save like $5.

Giant mess of freaks outside the showbox for "dark star orchestra," including the above lady who recognized us b/c Payton was wearing her same bright pink raincoat and in turn wouldn't quit earhole'n us as we were trying to walk home.  Normally, I'm the blunt one, but this time it was Payton who refused to let the lady use her cig-tainted hands to touch her.  She offered me more weed and I declined, not telling her I ended up throwing her november gift away.

Trump abandons crackdown on legal Marijuana
Policy change could eliminate threat to businesses in state

By EVAN HALPER
WASHINGTON

The Trump administration is abandoning a Justice Department threat to crack down on recreational marijuana in states where it is legal, a move that could enable cannabis businesses in California and other states that have legalized pot to operate without fear of federal raids and prosecution.

President Donald Trump personally directed the abrupt retreat, which came at the behest of Republican Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado. White House officials confirmed the policy shift Friday. Trump did not inform Attorney General Jeff Sessions in advance of the change in policy.

Gardner was incensed in January when the Justice Department announced that it was rescinding an Obama-era policy that directed federal prosecutors not to target marijuana businesses that operate legally under state law. The senator had blocked Justice Department nominees in retaliation.

In conversation with Trump this week, Gardner said he was assured that the federal government would not interfere with his state’s marijuana industry and that Trump would champion a new law that gives states the authority to set their own pot policies. In response, he lifted his remaining holds on nominees.

“Late Wednesday, I received a commitment from the president that the Department of Justice’s rescission of the Cole memo will not impact Colorado’s legal marijuana industry,” Gardner said, referring to the Obama-era policy, named after former Deputy Attorney General James Cole, who issued it.

“Furthermore, President Trump has assured me that he will support a federalism-based legislative solution to fix this states’ rights issue once and for all.”
White House officials confirmed that Gardner’s comments accurately reflect the administration’s position.

“The president did speak with Sen. Gardner yesterday and again today,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters Friday at the White House. She said “the president is a firm believer” in states’ rights and confirmed Gardner’s account of the assurances he received from the president was accurate.

A Justice Department official, who requested anonymity to speak frankly about internal discussions, confirmed that Trump did not consult Sessions before talking with Gardner. Sessions, a longtime anti-drug crusader, personally announced the administration’s marijuana crackdown policy in January.

The attorney general and Trump have had a frosty relationship for months, largely over Trump’s continued criticism that Sessions recused himself from any involvement into the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

California is one of eight states in which recreational marijuana is legal. The administration’s announcement in January that it was allowing prosecutors to target businesses selling pot legally under state laws put a cloud of uncertainty over the rapidly growing cannabis industry.

The talk of a crackdown threatened to slow investment in marijuana companies, which risked shutdown and seizure of their products at the decision of a single U.S. attorney. Under federal law, marijuana remains categorized as among the most dangerous drugs available, and one that has no valid medical purpose.

Marijuana stocks, which started the day down, surged after word spread of the Trump administration’s new posture toward the industry.
The mixed signals coming out of the administration, however, left some marijuana advocates proceeding with caution.

“I’m a big fan of wait-and-see what happens, but this is amazing news,” said Will Senn, co-founder of Urbn Leaf, which operates two licensed marijuana stores in San Diego and will soon open a third.
“I don’t think this will have much impact on retail sales. But it could help lead to more financial investment in the cannabis industry.”

Senn is vice president of Floris Fund, a private equity fund that is trying to raise $40 million to invest in the cannabis industry. He said the fund has raised close to half that figure.
“Today’s news will help our industry across the board, with everything from banking to investments to greater public acceptance,” said Lincoln Fish, chief executive of Outco, a cultivator and wholesaler near El Cajon that provides stores with recreational and medical marijuana.

“This has always been a states’ rights issue and we are pleased that this administration has finally recognized that right.”
Zach Lazarus, co-founder of A Green Alternative, a licensed retailer in Otay Mesa, said, “It would be unwise for Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions to try to shut down lawful dispensaries. It’s legal. People want it.

“Our growth is going through the roof, we’re employing more people, and we’re paying our taxes.”
Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., a leader of the Congressional Cannabis Caucus, called the commitment Gardner secured from Trump “another head-spinning moment.”
“We should hope for the best, but not take anything for granted,” Blumenauer said. “Trump changes his mind constantly, and Republican leadership is still in our way.”

Blumenauer is championing a measure that would prohibit federal law enforcement from using any money to crack down on recreational marijuana businesses operating legally under state law. That would expand an existing law that prevents federal law enforcement agencies from using their funds to go after companies legally selling medical marijuana, which is permitted in 29 states. The ban is the result of a budget rider Congress approved in 2014, and has renewed multiple times since.

I'm not sure if he fumblefucked his way into being semi-correct, or if he used the study(s) to make a bullshit point.

What is CBD oil?

Cannabidiol oil

https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/317221.php

I’m watching this weed special on CNN and they talked about CBD and THC.  The CBD is a known pain reliever, as opposed to the THC which is a psychedelic.  As someone who struggles with chronic pain I will be visiting my local CBD shop to try this stuff.  :thumbs:

CBD? What's that? I've never heard of such a thing. Probs another excuse for weedheads to just get high and be lazy.

Prices in KS are typically 2x Colorado.  I don't know if that has to do with regulation/tax or with it just being far more competitive in Colorado, but it might be worth checking prices in other states if they're an option for you.

I think if I was the dad in this scenario, I would've taken my son to a state where pot is legal - let him try it out to see if it stopped the seizures, and if so, then I would be looking to move my family to either that state or another state where it's legal.
