March Madness: It's Not Just for the NCAA

By | Blogs | No Comments

March madness photo for kush bottlesTake a look around the marijuana industry—looks like March Madness to us.

UPSETS. Underdogs seize the day during March Madness just like the No 11 seeded Dayton Flyers did by bringing down Stanford and going to the Elite 8 round. Medical marijuana advocates have felt like the underdogs in every legislative battle for a long time too…but they are starting to see the kind of upsets that basketball fans are cheering on the court. Look no further than Colorado and Washington to see what we mean.

OVERTIME. This season’s March Madness set a record for the most overtimes in a single round of the tournament, clocking five in round 64. Working overtime is nothing new to medical marijuana advocates, which explains why we are seeing progress in unlikely places—like the conservative South. Alabama legislators passed “Carly’s Law” in honor of a three year old girl who could benefit from the now-legalized medical grade marijuana extract. Florida voters will have a chance to vote on legalizing medical marijuana in November. Countless hours of relentless work have gone into these victories.

CELEBRATION DANCES. The Mercer Bears made March Madness history by knocking Duke out of the second round with a 78-71 upset and marked the event with a crowd-pleasing rendition of a popular hip-hop craze, the “Nae Nae.” In meeting rooms, law offices, kitchens across the nation marijuana advocates are doing their own renditions of celebration dances over the victories, large and small. We imagine the February 12 congressional letter calling for President Obama to delist or at least re-classify marijuana more appropriately sent many marijuana supporters breaking out their best moves.

GAME STRATEGY. Zone or man-to-man? Fast break play or slow the game down? Coaches have to adjust their strategy based on game conditions. Marijuana advocates must do the same. In Oregon, medical marijuana dispensaries are having to deal with a ban on the sale of sweet and sugary edibles, some of their most popular products. Hopes are that public feedback will prompt the Oregon Health Authority to repeal the ban. Raise your voice at medmj.dispensaries@state.or.us and be part of the new game plan.

3 People Going to Extreme Measures to Raise Awareness about Medical Marijuana

By | Blogs | No Comments

dr sanjay for kush bottles blog1. Dr. Sanjay Gupta: In 2009 Dr. Sanjay Gupta, a neurosurgeon and chief medical correspondent for CNN, wrote an article in TIME magazine titled, “Why I Would Vote No on Pot.” This year, he is quoted saying, “I am more convinced than ever that it is irresponsible to not provide the best care we can, care that often may involve marijuana. I am not backing down on medical marijuana; I am doubling down.” What caused his shift in opinion? Why is he now an advocate of the drug? Guptra set out on a year-long journey around the world where he interviewed experts in the marijuana field, growers and patients. During this trip he made some eye-opening discoveries like that marijuana was classified as a Substance 1 drug simply because there wasn’t enough knowledge about the plant yet. He’s complied everything he found in a documentary called, Weed, which is raising awareness. Check it out! http://bit.ly/N70Vfa

Momma bear pic for kush bottles blog2. The Mommy Lobby: Thirty years ago moms were lobbying to keep marijuana illegal. Now, the medicinal benefits have swayed the “Mommy Lobby” and they’re pushing to legalize it. Slowly but surely moms are finding some success as they plea with government officials and share stories of their suffering children who need the drug to help with diseases such as epilepsy. We think they’ll continue to succeed. No one wants to mess with a Momma Bear!

marijuana marathon man picture for kush bottles blog3. The Marijuana Marathon Man: Following in the footsteps of women like Susan G. Komen who started Race for the Cure, The Marijuana Marathon Man is racing to raise awareness and support for his cause: medical marijuana. Most recently he completed the Long Beach marathon. His blog features antidotes from his races and his opinions regarding current issues related to marijuana. You can donate to help him with his mission by buying a T-shirt from his website for $30.  http://bit.ly/1esxTyj
