Will Mexico Legalize Marijuana Next?

Politicians In Mexico Want To Legalize Marijuana

Marijuana legalization is now happening worldwide and some of the politicians in Mexico, are now talking about changing some of the current cannabis laws in this country.  It was back in 2009, when Mexico decided to allow citizens to posses up to 5 grams of marijuana, which is about .18 ounces.  Now, politicians in the capital city of Mexico, want to change this and it is very likely that they will win. 
While it can be said that marijuana is already legal in Mexico, the truth is that the laws still do not allow a person to grow cannabis plants in their homes or to purchase and sell this herb.  There is still a long road for legalizing marijuana in Mexico, but thanks to some politicians from the opposition, (which is the leading party in the capital city of this country), the minimum amount of marijuana a person can posses, may be raised from 5 grams to 35. 
This is definitely not a lot of marijuana for a person who needs it as medicine or someone who smokes this herb on a daily basis, but it is surely another step towards ending prohibition in Mexico and the world.    
It is now widely known that Mexico, is suffering from a fierce drug cartel war and there are many politicians, citizens and experts, who believe legalizing marijuana is a good way to start controlling this immense problem.    
The initiative for raising the legal amount of marijuana a Mexican citizen can posses, will be proposed in the next two weeks and since the party that is proposing it, has governed the capital city and other states since 1997, it is very likely that Mexico will soon be a step closer, to making cannabis legal.
The main goal of these changes to the marijuana laws in Mexico, is to not get as many people prosecuted and sent to jail.  This will reduce the amount the government has to spend and it will also not put innocent people in jail. 
Hopefully, this initiative is passed in the next couple of weeks and citizens of Mexico can carry more marijuana with them.  It will not be long, until Mexico decides to fully legalize marijuana and let their people grow this herb, but it is all about taking a few steps at a time and waiting for the right moment to do this.

Another NFL Star Inspires A Cannabis Strain Name

Marshawn Lynch Inspires The Name Of A Cannabis Strain

We had already published a post, about a marijuana strain being named after Peyton Manning and now, there is a new strain that has been named after another famous NFL Player.  If you know a little bit about football and read the news every now and then, you should know that the Super Bowl is right around the corner and that players are already arriving at Newark International Airport, to get ready for the game. 
The Super Bowl, will feature the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos, which both happen to be cannabis friendly States.  Marshawn Lynch, plays for the Seahawks and he is one of the team's best players.  Peyton Manning, also happens to be part of the Broncos' team, but this article is not about him.  Lynch, has earned the nickname of "Beast Mode", as he can become a beast on the football field. 
This nickname, is the phrase, which has inspired a Washington marijuana growing business, to name one of its strains.  Zion Gardens, is the cannabis business, which has decided to name one of their marijuana strains "Beast Mode" and they have come up with the name, just in time for the Super Bowl. 
The strain, is supposed to be, super extra-strong and it will surely be a favorite, during these upcoming months.  Now that cannabis is legal in some places of the world, new cannabis strain names will surely keep popping and famous people are sure to be the inspiration for many. 
Please remember to share and like this article, so that more people can read about the "Beast Mode Cannabis Strain" and try to find it out there.  You can also subscribe to our free newsletter, by joining our mailing list to the right.

Is Barcelona The New Amsterdam?

Barcelona Is Getting More Tourists Thanks To Cannabis

There are many traveling sites and other references, which now describe, Barcelona as the new Amsterdam and they may actually be right.  There are many people talking about the marijuana clubs, which have been opening around Barcelona, for the past two years and many believe that these are attracting a lot more people, than the traditional coffee shops in Amsterdam.
The local government in Barcelona, is now considering legalizing all of these cannabis clubs and this only shows that this Spanish city, could very well become the new Amsterdam.  Laws about marijuana, are still very weary in all Spain, which is why these clubs have been able to grow in the last couple of years and why this city, is rapidly becoming one of the favorite places for cannabis tourists to visit.
There are even some tours now, which take you to Barcelona and to many of these marijuana clubs.  The guides, will also take you to the rather new "Cannabis Museum" and they are certainly something to experience, for all those people who are into the 420 culture. 
There are also now several methods to become a member of these cannabis clubs in Barcelona, which would give you access, to some fantastic herbs.  Please remember to share and like this article, so that more people can read about Barcelona being the new Amsterdam and leave us a comment, about what you think too.  You can also subscribe to our free newsletter to the right and we will keep you informed about other interesting things related to marijuana and the legalization of this herb.

Obama Says That Marijuana Is No More Dangerous Than Alcohol

President Obama Admits That Marijuana Is Not That Dangerous

It is now well known, that President Barack Obama, smoked cannabis when he was young and he has now stated, that marijuana is no more dangerous than alcohol or cigarettes are. This is not only great news, but it should really help the world to realize that cannabis is in fact a safe herb to legalize. 
President's Obama speech about marijuana, comes just as New York is talking about becoming one of the 20 US States, which have already legalized cannabis, which means that legalization may be around the corner for this State too.
In an interview, with one of the editors of New York Magazine, President Obama said, “As has been well documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life. I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol.”
While President Obama, also said that he does not encourage the use of cannabis, he did say that he does believe some people should not be incarcerated for its use and that he believes, that the lower levels of society are the ones that are placed in jail the most. 
“Middle-class kids don't get locked up for smoking pot, and poor kids do,” Obama said. “African-American kids and Latino kids are more likely to be poor and less likely to have the resources and the support to avoid unduly harsh penalties.”
Hopefully laws related to cannabis change in the remaining States of the US soon, as this will surely help the rest of the world to legalize this herb too.  Please remember to share and like this article, so that more people can read about what President Obama thinks of marijuana and to promote the legalization of cannabis around the world.  You can also subscribe to our free mailing list, by leaving us your email to the right and we will keep you informed about other cool things related to this herb.

Being Part Of The Cannabis Industry

Many parts of the world, have already legalized cannabis for either medicinal or recreational purposes and there are also many people, who are asking themselves, if they can make some money with cannabis or not. 
While marijuana is already one of the most important crops in the world, there are still many entrepreneurs who are not certain how they can get involved in this industry and in this blog post, we are going to give you a few ideas. 
It is true, that you can start your own medical cannabis store or even apply for a license to grow marijuana at a large scale, but this requires a lot of money and this is something that not many of us have.  Some simple ideas and the combination of this wonderful herb, could get you into this industry easily and this is why, you should keep on reading!


Ideas For Making Money With Cannabis

  • Organize some tours to places that are now marijuana friendly and charge for guiding your guests, through some of the places that you already know.  (It is a good idea, to try and talk to some of the new cannabis friendly businesses and see if you can come to an agreement, so that both of you can make some money.)
  • Invest in some of the marijuana businesses that are now in the stock market.  Some of these businesses will probably grow a lot in the next couple of years and if you can pick the ones that are, you could make a ton of money with them. 
  • Start your very own marijuana cake factory.  If you are able to live in one of the places that has already legalized marijuana, you can try and get a license, so you can start your very own cannabis bakery or restaurant.  There are so many options in this field and all you need is a little imagination and a little perseverance, as well. 
  • If it is possible, organize some parties and charge an entrance fee. You do not have to sell or supply cannabis to your guests, but they can bring their own and have a nice smoke.  You can offer your guests other things, like beverages, amazing music, some cool lights, lots of people and other ideas that you might have.  Applying a theme, to each of your parties, is an excellent idea!
Cannabis legalization, is something that is going to happen sooner or later and those of you, who want to make some money out of this herb, should already be coming up with some ideas and getting started, because there are already many entrepreneurs, who are getting involved in this new "Green" industry.

TSX Could Soon Get A Medical Marijuana Producer

A Medical Marijuana Producer May Be Added To TSX

Investing is one of the most important parts of our economy and today, the medical marijuana and recreational cannabis industries, might be one of the best investments out there.  According to some recent news, a medical marijuana producer, might soon be added to TSX, which means that investors will be able to buy stock in this company and try their luck with it. 
The name of this cannabis related company is, Tweed Inc. and some Canadian entrepreneurs, have already made a bid, in order to make this company public at TSX.  Tweed Inc. has gained popularity in recent months, as they bought some of the health businesses, before Canadians accepted some of their new medical cannabis laws.  Tweed, has grown a lot in the last few months and this means that they will surely become a public company very soon. 
According to Debbie Weinstein, who is the director of LW Capital Pool, which is the group that is trying to make Tweed Inc. public at TSX, "Ignoring the sexiness ... our board felt very comfortable in being able to analyze the pros and cons of the business plans and operations, and then of course we couldn't ignore the hype and marketing around this particular industry."
Some of these entrepreneurs, stated that managing Tweed, would not be any different, than managing any other tech company out there and that they believe this is one of the best industries to invest in right now. 
This proves how cannabis is now becoming an even more important part of our lives and how many people are now thinking about making this their business.  Please share and like this blog post, so that more people can read about Tweed becoming a public company.  You can also subscribe to our free mailing list, by leaving us your email in the box to the right and we will send you more information about marijuana.

Is Legal Marijuana In Colorado Going To Affect Mexican Drug Cartels?

Marijuana Is Now Legal In Colorado

We are now in 2014 and there are news all over the web, the radio, TV and newspapers, about marijuana being legally for the first time in Colorado.  There is tons of information about how some of the cannabis stores open their doors for recreational smokers for the first time and what many people were saying during this important day, in "Stoner's History". 
What many have not realized, is that these new marijuana laws, will have an effect in many places of the world and that even Mexican drug cartels, might be affected by them.  Mexico's drug cartel problems, are no longer a secret and these new laws in Colorado, might very well, help to reduce the violence and crime rate, in Mexico. 
I was reading an article at Chron and it talked about these new cannabis legalization in Colorado, helping to stop the immense profits that Mexican drug cartels make, from selling their weed in the US.  The article has some very interesting data, about marijuana being around 30% of the cartels' entire profits and how legalizing marijuana in Colorado, could help Mexican authorities, to finally put a stop to all the terrible things that are going on in their territory. 

Legalizing Marijuana Will Bring Peace Around The World

Chron's article, also talks about how Mexican drug cartels might not be affected as much, by Colorado legalizing cannabis, as this is not a very large State and they do not have too many people, who consume this herb.  The article also talks about how different it would be, if a State like Texas, were to legalize marijuana, as this is a much larger State, with a much larger cannabis smoking population and it also borders Mexico, which means it is an important market for several drug cartels.
I believe, that it is only a matter of time, until marijuana is legalized in more States and that Mexican cartels really do get affected by this.  It is obvious, that some will manage to get in front of some of these new legal marijuana businesses and that they will continue to make some huge profits from this plant, but there will also be many, that will not make the transition and that will be erased from the map.
Legalizing marijuana in Colorado, is one of the smartest things that any government could do and this will be proven in a very short time.  Please help to share the work, by clicking some of the social buttons below and by subscribing to our free mailing list, by leaving us your email in the box to the right.
