The cannabis industry has a tasty solution to the Trump Shutdown: Free Medicinal Ganj for unpaid federal workers.

Ganjapreneur dropped this tasty nug in our Inbox this morning: "Website Offers Free Cannabis to Government Workers During Shutdown". The company offering the freebies is BudTraderwhich wants you to know it's the largest online cannabis marketplace, sorta like "Craig's List for Weed."

It seems this offer is onl...

Nine months ago we jumped to forefront of articulating a fundamental issue affecting cannabis and the American People, namely that cannabis, which is defined by the Federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) as a Schedule 1 drug, is also considered to have healing/curative/medicinal properties by folks in another part of the Federal Government - the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) (and by millions of people around the wo...

The internet is atwitter (yep, it is) about Malcolm Gladwell's latest litany-of-unanswered-questions essay about cannabis, published this week by the New Yorker, "Is Marijuana as Safe as We Think?". 

Many have suggested that Saint Malcolm laid an egg here. And while he's a writer we usually find to be without peer in blowing our minds by revealing that stuff-we-thought-we knew-already is exactly- the-opposite, we agre...

It's been eighteen months, give or take, since we lambasted former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for giving an incendiary speech against the evils of the demon weed. Christie was blowing hot that day... at a pharmaceutical conference... real Fire and Brimstone stuff, right out of the Hearst playbook.

The good governor had his ticket punched by the voters of his fair state - or was it term limits? ... to be replaced by a fo...

Unbalanced Reporting Alert: The Daily News (a New York City daily paper) has just blasted a story filled with so many errors in judgment, we are concerned about who's in charge over there. 

Background: The article, called "Cuomo's marijuana mistake: Legalizing pot is bad for young people and public health" popped up on our Flipboard news aggregator.

Let's pop the weasels one by one, shall we?

"Just last year, Gov. Cuomo stood on...

Dear Readers, you’ve noticed our output has been limited for the past month here at the American Cannabis Report. 

We had observed that the cannabis industry has reached an inflection point, where the end of Prohibition is within reach. Economic momentum, tax revenues, public opinion, political discourse… all are heading in the right directions.

So we pulled back to take a hard look at the industry, and our role as influencers t...

We were disappointed but not surprised to hear that the ebulliently misguided talkholes at the state propaganda agency, er, Fox News Network, claimed on Monday that “gummies” infused with marijuana are threatening the lives of Americans. 

On Monday’s edition of Fox & Friends, host Brian Kilmeade spoke to a sheriff in Florida about a 12-year-old boy who was charged with felonies for sharing marijuana candy with his classmates....

Seems like a thousand years ago that Abbie Hoffman said, “Never trust anyone over 30.” A recent story out of ye olde Commonwealth of Massachusetts highlights the profound disconnect that still exists between those who purport to be in charge, and those who are assumed to be druggies, dolts, and dangers to society.

With a vehemence bordering on the comical, the University of Massachusetts at Amherst is making it clear that, with...
