Not So Far Out

Not So Far Out

Medical cannabis lays groundwork for medical psychedelics in treatment of PTSD
Have you noticed lately the reemergence of psychedelic substances in mainstream discussions of mental health? If so, you're not hallucinating.

Coming Changes

How to screen for drugs on the road and in federal workplaces
LAW | Police officers in Washington state may soon have a new tool at their disposal to bust drivers under the influence of marijuana: a drug breathalyzer. As reported by R&D Magazine, a research team at Washington State University's Department of Chemistry has developed a method of measuring THC on the breath using ion mobility spectrometry, which has traditionally been used to detect evidence of chemical warfare.

Looking for a Leader

The cannabis inclinations of the presidential hopefuls
"We believe the two-party system is a dinosaur, and we are the comet." So said Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) forum on the website Reddit last week with running mate Bill Weld.

Record High

Who's buying what in Washington state's exploding cannabis market
July was a historic month, and not just because it was, according to NASA and NOAA, our planet's warmest since 1880. Cannabis retailers in Washington state also raked in $63.6 million in sales, an 18 percent surge from June's total and a new record for the legal market.

Seeking Approval

A higher hurdle for aspiring drivers and a new research opportunity

Dividing Lines

A dispensary squares off with a church
"Man made beer. God made pot.

Take a Trip

Local curators dig up soundtracks for an altered state of mind
Ask any Gen-Xer who ever attempted, in stereotypical stoner fashion, to sync a VHS of The Wizard of Oz with Dark Side of the Moon, and this becomes clear: Music and cannabis are inextricably linked. Budtender Justin Fulton, who is spinning Tupac on a summer afternoon at Lucky Leaf, calls it a "mood setter."

Pot Progress

Cannabis acceptance pushes further into the mainstream
FAIR | Following quickly on the heels of legalization (Oregon residents 21 and older could possess and cultivate marijuana as of July 2015), this year's Oregon State Fair in Salem will feature a new crop exhibit: prize-winning cannabis plants. As reported by the Oregonian, nine plants, 4-H-style colored competition ribbons included, will be displayed in a guarded greenhouse for viewing and not, to the disappointment of some, consumption.

Test Anxiety

Test Anxiety

Attitudes about cannabis have shifted, but when it comes to the workplace, change has been slower

Drug Money

Drug Money

Money from the marijuana taxes is beginning to trickle down from the state to local cities

Change?

Seeds of Change?

Unlike its neighbors to the west, Idaho has resisted loosening its cannabis laws. Could that be changing?

Too Much 
Green

Too Much Green

The lack of banking services has forced pot transactions to be handled with cash, and that can be a problem

Pot is legal. That doesn't mean more kids are smoking it; it also doesn't mean they should
