Why patients’ stories matter (from the CORE Marijuana Health Symposium)

June 14, 2015

The following post was originally posted on Cannabis Patients Alliance's website by Teri Robnett.

There are good days, and then there are really good days. Days when you think you’ve made an impact. Days that hover on the edge of greatness. For me, yesterday was one of those days.

Everyone Wants A Marijuana Breathalyzer But No One Knows If That’s Possible

May 29, 2015

Colorado NORML Board Member, Judd Golden, was recently featured in a BuzzFeed article.

Investors, state governments, employers — everyone wants a functional marijuana breathalyzer to test whether someone is high at a given moment. But that may not be possible.

[...]

Because no biological test has ever been shown to accurately assess whether someone is acutely stoned, many cannabis activists believe that the search is fruitless, even if investors think they’re going to see a big payoff someday. Colorado lawyer Judd Golden, who serves on the state board of the National Organization to Reform Marijuana Law (NORML) and spent nearly two decades running...


Amend HR15-1305 - Unlawful Manufacture of Marijuana Concentrates

May 01, 2015

The Colorado Chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) supports public safety for marijuana consumers and reasonable regulation of the use of inherently hazardous substances. But HR 15-1305 goes too far. NORML has sent the following to the Colorado Legislature, requesting that HR 15-1305 be amended to truly and fairly reflect public safety concerns by:

1. Not singling out marijuana manufacturing, but instead regulate the manufacturing of all materials that use inherently hazardous substances;
