  • Majority of Americans Favor Cannabis Legalization

    A Gallup poll conducted last month confirms what a lot of us have already guessed – support for legalizing cannabis is at an all-time…well…high. The organization has been tracking Americans’ opinions on legalization since 1969 when only 12% supported the idea. By 2001, that had risen to about a third, which still meant the vast […]

  • Around the World with Cannabis

    Once a month or so, we at The Green Solution® turn our attention to the laws governing cannabis in other parts of the world. Previously we’ve looked at Uruguay, Japan, and Portugal. Today our subject is an island nation that’s nearly synonymous with cannabis – Jamaica. First, a little background. Jamaica gained its independence from […]

  • CBD and Sports

    Slowly, and we hope surely, the world is beginning to realize the benefits of cannabidiol (CBD). One of the latest entities to drop the prohibition against CBD is the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), a group created by the International Olympic Committee to promote, coordinate, and monitor the fight against drugs in sports. WADA maintains a list […]

  • California and Recreational Sales

    Lots of things happened on Election Day 2016, and one of the happier outcomes was the passage of The Adult Use of Marijuana Act (Proposition 64) in California, which legalizes sales of recreational cannabis statewide on January 1, 2018. But with less than two months to go, cities are still hashing out (pun intended) the […]
