Green 2016

    California The California Marijuana Legalization Initiative would legalize recreational marijuana for adults and regulate the sale of bud like alcohol. Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom supports the cause saying he would back a marijuana legalization initiative in 2016. He stated, "I don’t like drug abuse, or drug use. That said, I dislike the ‘war on drugs’ more. It is a war on people of color, it is a war on poor people, and it is an outrage."  Florida The Right to Medical Marijuana Initiative would legalize marijuana for individuals with qualifying conditions determined by a licensed state physician.

Dopest Shops – Trichome – Seattle, Washington

Seattle, the land of endless rain clouds… or so we thought!  On a recent trip to The Emerald City, it was nothing but blue skies for weeks, surrounded by a sea of green and easily some of the most down-to-earth people in the country.  From everything we witnessed, the legal marijuana market there is flourishing – much in the way you would expect your small indoor crop to when you’re able to put it outside under the sun.  During our extensive tour of the market, we had the pleasure of visiting one shop in particular that I haven’t been able to get off my mind – Trichome located in the International District.  From the moment you walk in the door,...
