  • New Survey on Women and Cannabis

    The relationship between women and cannabis is a topic of growing interest for many researchers, journalists, and filmmakers.

    Whether you love them or hate them, Amazon is here to stay. The e-commerce behemoth was founded in 1994, is based in Seattle, and as you’ve probably heard by now, is looking to open a second headquarters (which they’ve dubbed ‘HQ2”) somewhere in the United States or Canada – and Denver is most definitely in […]

  • 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 […]
