US States with the most Cannabis Users

If you’re wondering which states have the most marijuana users per capita, here’s the answers…
The top marijuana using state isn’t California (#16) or Colorado (#8).  It’s Vermont, surprisingly! Second in the list is the District of Colombia, followed by Oregon, Alaska and Washington.

These are some of the northern most states in the country where people tend to spend more time indoors due to inclement weather, so that could be one reason why they came out on top.

At the other extreme, states that do not have a lot of cannabis users per capita are: Alabama (#51), Utah… Continue reading

Caribbean Nations Legalize Cannabis

St Kitts and Nevis
The Government of St. Kitts and Nevis has finalized and approved legislation for ‘the responsible use of cannabis’ to take effect on the Internationally Recognized Day of Cannabis, April 20, 2024.

In 2020, the island nation/state decriminalized small amounts of cannabis. The islands have been pot-friendly for decades, so it is a logical path for them.

US Cannabis Sales WAY Up!

2024’s predicted cannabis sales will be in excess of $31 BILLION dollars. That’s pretty high! More than triple from just 2019.

David Craig, chief marketing officer of Missouri licensed cannabis producer Illicit Gardens, said “It should be clear by now that cannabis isn’t going anywhere.”

“If the federal government is going to drag its feet on descheduling, then it’s up for the states to take the lead in removing regulatory hurdles to operators, especially multi-state ones,” Craig wrote in an email. “What most outside the industry don’t realize is the extreme burden operating without uniform standards across legal states.”

Cannabis Does Not Affect Driving Ability

New Research from Australia highlights the fact that using prescribed doses of cannabis does not interfere with driving ability.  Selecting only medical marijuana patients for the study, and using simulated driving, researchers discovered little to no impairment when people consumed moderate amounts of cannabis.

Our main finding was the absence of impairment on a simulated highway driving task. We noted that patients consuming their medication as prescribed drove with slightly greater consistency in highway driving speed and reported a decrease in the perceived effort required to drive

The study measured how 40 drivers responded 2.5 hours after consumption and… Continue reading

Feds Ask DEA to Reschedule Cannabis

Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) officials have recommended the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) place cannabis in Schedule III of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA).

They have released over 250 pages of documents along with a letter of recomendation to the administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration stating (among other things) that cannabis “has a currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States and a potential for abuse less than the drugs or other substances in Schedules I and II.”

Aside from whether it has a currently accepted medical use (CAMU), many states have already legalized cannabis… Continue reading
