Meet the "Doctors for Cannabis Regulation"

More than 50 physicians, a former general surgeon, and faculty from some of the country’s most prominent medical schools have joined forces to launch the first national organization of medical professionals who are in favor of cannabis legalization. While there are dozens of national associations of doctors, there hasn’t been a single one created for them to speak out about the legalization of marijuana… until today.

Three Dead, One Critical in Shooting at Oregon Marijuana & Blueberry Farm

Three Dead, One Critical in Shooting at Oregon Marijuana & Blueberry Farm

Three people were gunned down at an Oregon farm Monday morning that grew both marijuana and blueberries, according to officials.

Bonaficio Oseguera-Gonzalez, 29, was taken by police about two hours after the shooting 40 miles away from the Woodburn farm. Though the farm was growing marijuana in addition to produce, officials do not believe the murders were related to the cannabis grow.

Two men were found already dead by officers at the farm. Another man and a woman were rushed to the hospital with gunshot wounds, where the woman also died of her injuries.

Marijuana Price Index: May 2016

Marijuana Price Index: May 2016

In a real mind-boggler, all grades of marijuana with the exception of the overall U.S. price index finished out the month below their April average. Mid-grade had such a horrific month; it hit its lowest price point in six full years.

It was crowded at the top in May for most expensive pot as Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, and Tennessee all clocked in with $400 ounces. On the flip side, Colorado leaves all competition in the dust with $120 ounces of Goji OG.
