A warm Beard Bros. Pharms welcome to our new contributor, Oregon’s own Dick Fitts.

Remembering Mickey Martin: His Voice May Be Gone But the Connections Live On

From coast to coast, Mickey brought people together. . . but not just anyone. His Bullshit Detector was always perfectly calibrated and gaining his trust wasn’t easy. Once you did though, you gained entry into a truly grassroots network of up and coming colleagues as well as some of the oldest and most respected names in the game. You can read about all of his accomplishments and his disappointments - he had his share of both - but the bottom line is that Mickey Martin connected good people, he helped good people. We miss him so much.

The Blessing & the Curse of Cannabis: Cancer Docs Scared to Talk Pot

Cannabis, in its natural form, is a very unique medicine. It can effectively treat so many ailments, but those effects vary greatly from user to user. This is its blessing and its curse. Anecdotal evidence traditionally does not carry a lot of weight in the field of research medicine but it is essential in the understanding of cannabis and how it affects people. By hearing enough stories, and by treating those stories as “cases”, bigger picture extrapolations can occur which could potentially help doctors to gain a broader knowledge of the plant and how it can be optimally used to heal.

The Right Hook: Major Sports Leagues Begin to Reevaluate Cannabis as Medicine

Of the 123 professional sports teams across the NFL, NHL, NBA, and MLB, 45 of them (or 36.6% of them) are based in states or provinces where recreational cannabis is legal for consumption by adults aged 21 and up. On top of that, 56 of them (or 45.5% of them) have home court/field/ice advantage in states or provinces where medical use of cannabis is legal. Don’t worry, we did the math – that’s 102 out of 123 teams, or a heavily lopsided 82% of sports teams from those four leagues. There are only six states remaining that have a pro team but do not have progressive cannabis reform in place – Georgia, Indiana, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin. That sure adds a new twist to draft day.

“Corruption, Cronyism, Political Maneuvering”: Shocking Nobody, Pay to Play Schemes Uncovered at the Root of Cali’s Struggling Cannabis Market

I guess we shouldn’t be surprised - kickbacks, bribes, and pay-to-play schemes form the tattered fabric of our political system so why would legal cannabis be any different? Prop 64 gave undue power to local yokels and corrupt city officials who are now blaming the state for giving them so much rope to hang themselves with. But in the meantime, it is the legit, law-abiding, fee-paying, cannabis industry hopefuls who are left swinging in the breeze.
