Does California Sober work?  We say NO

“I really believe in the ‘Cali sober’ method. It’s helped me. I actually just hit five years clean.” Aaron Carter made that declaration on Adam Grandmaison’s “No Jumper” podcast — just days before he died on November 5, 2022.  As he fingered a joint, he continued, “This, I don’t consider a drug.

Politicians play into Koch vs. Soros models of pot legalization

Politicians take sides when it comes to marijuana legalization.

“TACOMA — The method is the same each time: A stolen car slams through the entrance of a marijuana shop, shattering glass and scattering debris everywhere. A group of masked thieves rushes in, ransacks the place and flees in another stolen car.”   

The above describes recent break-ins between Olympia and Tacoma, Washington, 5 of which occurred during the last week of October.

Colorado non-profit, Once Chance to Grow Up, warns about THC

Once Chance to Grow Up warns about THC in a new video.  Because of a law passed last year, Colorado now requires dispensaries to provide a resource to people buying concentrates, including dabs and vapes.  The state has identified that 93% of all products sold in dispensaries are considered to be high-potency marijuana products.  The warning is applicable to products of 10 percent or more THC, products considered to be high-potency marijuana.  Continue reading Colorado non-profit, Once Chance to Grow Up, warns about THC
