Activism

"We see cannabis not as a gateway drug. We see it as an exit path off opiates."

Dennis Peron, the cannabis activist who fired up the movement to legalize medical marijuana in California, died on Saturday in a San Francisco hospital. He was 72.

State regulators awarded a $1 million, three-year contract this week to a New Jersey-based company to operate a toll-free help line for patients, caregivers and doctors accessing Ohio's new medical marijuana program. 

Connecticut cannabis activists believe that legalization of recreational cannabis isn’t a matter of if, it’s a matter of when.

Legalization advocates in 420-unfriendly states like Kansas and Oklahoma have many hurdles to overcome, but they want the outside world to know they haven’t given up the fight.

“Jeff Sessions is an old dinosaur with old ideas,” said one dispensary customer. “We have a younger, newer, more educated population who will vote that out. It won’t last."
