At the stroke of midnight, something historic happened in the United States: weed became legal in the nation’s capital. The law officially went into effect on February 26th at 12:01AM, however, it’s not binding on federal lands where it’s still illegal, which as DCist notes, “accounts for 22 percent of the District.” During the midterm […]

“The federal government should repeal the ban on marijuana,” writes the Editorial Board of the New York Times. In just over 500 words, the oped — which is accompanied by a trippy animation that shows the stars and stripes morphing into weed leaves — spells out why it’s time to legalize cannabis, likening the government’s […]

Happy New Years indeed, for California especially. Starting January 1st, the state’s new law takes effect and the penalty for the possession of an ounce or less of pot will be equivalent to that of a parking ticket. It will carry a $100 fine, but it won’t go on a person’s criminal record or even […]

Want to stop doing dope and “reset your tolerance levels to zero, like you’ve never done drugs?” Try ibogaine, the root bark from the tabernanthe iboga plant. Get cured and “paralyzed by hallucinations” of vicious monsters, “washed in love,” or turn into bark, as per artist Levi Van Veluw’s illustrations.

Congratulations America. Today, the D.C. Council moved one step closer to legalizing medical weed. Congress still has to vote on the bill that would allow for a set number of dispensaries in the nation’s capital and if approved, this could be just the kind of jurisdictional nightmare the country needs right now.
