In a month when the phrase “greater enforcement” was uttered by the Trump administration in relation to marijuana, Colorado’s cannabis sales continued their surge.
In February, licensed shops brought in nearly $126.1 million in sales, with more than $86.4 million in recreational revenue and $39.6 million in medical marijuana revenue. It’s the third-highest monthly sales total in Colorado’s recreational marijuana era, according to The Cannabist’s calculations of Colorado Department of Revenue data made public Tuesday.
If you’ve ever watched an episode of Scooby-Doo, you’ve probably wondered whether or not dogs can actually get the same sort of effect that humans get from smoking cannabis. The answer is a resounding yes, as there have been many cases in more recent days of dogs getting into cannabis edibles and getting so stoned they can’t do anything except lay around and drool.

Dogs can in fact get high, but please read on before smoking up with your dog. You’d much rather be safe than sorry.

Aurora, Colorado is putting marijuana legalization to use as a tool for advancing social justice, directing money from weed sales to a local nonprofit working with the homeless.
In an unanimous vote on Tuesday, the Colorado Senate approved “Jack’s Law,” a measure allowing children to use medical marijuana on school grounds. The law, which Governor John Hickenlooper supports, requires schools to establish policies for medical marijuana access, but does not require school administrators or nurses to administer it.

Although the U.S. Supreme Court recently rejected a lawsuit brought forth by Oklahoma and Nebraska demanding the immediate shutdown of the Colorado cannabis industry, a new report indicates the two prohibition states have not stopped devising war tactics to sabotage legal weed.
The United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has granted approval to clinical trials assessing the therapeutic use of medical marijuana to treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) among US veterans, the non-profit group behind the study said in a press release on Thursday.

After years high atop the Drug Enforcement Administration’s list of the most dangerous drugs, marijuana may soon be coming down.
