The First Legal Cannabis Display in the US

Living Marijuana Plants Are Placed on Display

The Oregon State Fair in Salem, Oregon made the records books this week, as they displayed some living cannabis plants for everyone to see.  This is the first time that this happens in the US.  

Oregon voted in favor of legalizing this plant back in 2014 and this display, will surely help the public to learn more about marijuana and why it is not harmful as we were thought to believe once.  

Last year, the Oregon State Fair only had a display about cannabis, but they did not have any living plants.  This year, things have changed and it is obvious that everyone is now more open to this plant.  
The display includes nine beautiful cannabis plants and only people who are over 21 can enter the translucent tent.  

The State of Oregon now allows the sale of marijuana edibles, such as cannabis infused brownies and candies.  According to a recent report, the State of Oregon generated more than $25.5 million in tax revenue from recreational marijuana, since January of 2016.  

This is proof that marijuana will soon be legal everywhere and that it is time to take the taboo off of this plant.

WikiLeaf Brings Price Transparency For Marijuana

Knowing Your Cannabis Prices

It was in 2014, when Daniel Nelson, decided to create WikiLeaf, claiming that he wanted to know more about the prices of medical marijuana in his area, as he uses this herb to forget about his lower back pain.

“I originally built Wikileaf for myself in 2014, really to find transparency in a marketplace that was so in the shadows”, stated Nelson to the press. His main goal is to let other people know how much cannabis costs around them, so they can get their money’s worth.

Today, Wikileaf is used by more than 150000 people every month and it now includes recreational cannabis dispensaries that are located around the US.

The website allows visitors to easily find dispensaries by their prices and to compare prices as well. There is an option for users to type in how much cannabis they want to buy and the average price in a certain area, will show up n your screen.

The site also allows users to find a specific strain or to browse marijuana based on its effect, while comparing prices in different dispensaries. The strains that show up on the screen, will also include a basic information section, such asits normal effects and how much THC content it has.

Nelson also stated, “we’re really in it for everybody, whether its your first experience with cannabis or your five-hundredth experience with cannabis. We’re all in for transparency and educating the consumer on any level. That’s kind of our ultimate goal.

Thanks to people like Nelson, the cannabis industry will surely be more transparent in upcoming years and we will finally have more marijuana businesses all around us. Please remember to share and like this blog post, so that more people can read about Wikileaf.

Marijuana Grow Operations Are Increasing

DEA Believes Marijuana Grow Operations Will Become The New Meth Houses

The DEA is now worrying about a new "problem", (according to them), which is that cannabis grow operations are increasing and that they will most likely become the new meth houses around the world.  

According to the DEA, large marijuana farms are being established indoors in residential areas of Colorado and other parts of the US.  The report states that some cannabis growers are taking advantage of some loopholes in the current laws and are exceeding their marijuana grow limits.  

In Colorado:

Amendment 64, the law allowing people to grow and consume marijuana in their homes, also allows any adult in Colorado to "assist" any other adult in "possessing, growing, processing, or transporting" marijuana. Another provision, Amendment 20, allows caregivers — who grow marijuana for medical purposes — the ability to grow up to 99 plants for their patients. 
These are the loopholes that have allowed some cannabis growers to create large operations in residential areas and this is certainly something that the DEA does not like.

Some experts believe that just like meth houses, some of these grow operations will also leave some of these houses unusable and that they are affecting the community in more than one way.  

We should certainly not encourage large grow operations in residential areas and we hope that people start being more responsible, as we need to fully legalize or regulate marijuana worldwide and actions like these will not help the movement.  We have come a long way and we are certain that cannabis will be fully legal everywhere very soon.
