    One hopes this will be another failed republican policy, just like the wall and the muslim ban

    I wonder how they reached that figure. The state of Colorado made enough money for a tax holiday. Given that's an actual implementation rather than some theoretical model cooked up by some think-tank, I suspect someone has fluffed their sums.

    £1bn is a suspiciously rounded and emblematic number. It's nonsense.

    Cannabis, like all parts of the black economy, already contributes to the overall economy.

    This is of interest. Expect a pharmaceutical companies backlash.
    Medical marijuana may be a salve for the US opioid epidemic

    Not picked up on much but both the FDP (liberals) and the Greens in Germany are pro-legalisation - the german conservatives might not like it much but it could come up in the coalition negotiations they are having to get those two parties on board.

    I hate the term marijuana. It's ridiculous and was deliberately used by the early prohibitionists as a way of making cannabis, or "hemp" (the words have the same root - canab or hanap) sound weird and foreign.

    It almost always seems to be called cannabis on this side of the pond anyway. At least by police and the media.

    They’ll often say things like ‘a cannabis cigarette’ which nobody else would ever say and just sounds plain odd.

    I can spell cannabis, but always have to look up the spelling of the other one.

    I'm lazy, so it will be cannabis for me.

    (weed, dope, and green are also usable, but not so much on the internet)

    There's some fascinating reading on both the state government's Cannabis Portal & the Bureau of Cannabis Control websites:

    Bureau of Cannabis Control (BCC)

    Cannabis | California Cannabis Portal

    Such as: California’s top marijuana regulator talks about what to expect Jan. 1, when legal pot market opens | Cannabis
    Now there's my dream job. :D

    First in the UK? What twat of a sub-editor came up with that headline, considering the article correctly points out that Jersey is not part of the UK. :facepalm:

    The UK will be last. Our politicians would rather have 10,000 deaths that they can blame on others than 500 deaths that the tabloids could pin on them.
