The U.S. Will Not Legalize Cannabis Anytime Soon… Unless…

There are dozens of valid reasons why we need to legalize cannabis federally. We are proud to know and support some of the most influential cannabis advocates who are fighting every day to make sure that those reasons get satisfied by an eventual, inevitable effort to legalize weed nationwide. Rushing that process now, after so much time and effort has been put into it, could be catastrophic for the cannabis culture as we know it. The last thing we need is a 50-state version of Prop 64. . . or worse.

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.

Two Dollar Pre-Rolls & Pike Caviar: Something for Everyone at Hall of Flowers 2019

Living up to its name, the vast majority of the vendors at the Hall of Flowers show were there to push cannabis and cannabis-infused goods. There has been some critique online already about the quality of the buds on display but we found it to be a pretty damn accurate depiction of the legal market as it stands today - some absolute fire in a sea of midgrade, mass produced boof. The fact of the matter is that if they limited the show to only companies providing 5-star weed on the legal market, they could hold it in a walk-in closet. Instead, what we saw were a lot of well-funded startups trying their hardest to keep their heads above water while also trying to appear equal parts authentic and confident. Many of them will figure it out, some will not. . . that’s business.

“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.

Stirring the Pot with Om Edibles: How This Female Driven Company is Defining Legal Cannabis

Here in California, the headlines are dominated by news of multimillion dollar acquisitions, corporate cannabis carpetbagging, and an uptick in law enforcement against this allegedly legal plant. The stories that often go untold involve so many of the legacy operators that sowed the fields for cannabis reform but are now unable to clear the incredibly high barriers of entry into the industry that they risked their own liberties to help create. But some other untold tales that fail to reach the mainstream marijuana media involve those who did come from the grassroots of the cannabis culture and were able to overcome the many challenges put forth by legalization to earn their spot in the new landscape of the wild west of weed. Today we have one such story.

Freshman Congresswoman Exposes Cannabis Industry's Dubious D.C. Tactics

We understand the way the game is played. We realize that with the way that our version of democracy currently functions, lobbying is a necessary tool. At Beard Bros. Pharms we are actively seeking opportunities to allow us to lobby state and national politicians on behalf of the cannabis culture as much as the cannabis industry. We feel that our grassroots approach, rooted in the struggle of advocacy and reform and fed with years of acquired knowledge could yield a highly beneficial future for society when it comes to cannabis.

#TEAMCANNABIS4EPILEPSY: Battling Epilepsy & the Negative Stigma Around Cannabis One Step at a Time

In reality, we are just scratching the surface of the healing properties of not only CBD, but THC and the wide array of cannabinoids and terpenes that occur naturally in the cannabis plant in varying ratios depending on the strain of the plant used for the extraction, and on the extraction method itself. Decades of federal prohibition have ironically and ignorantly stunted our institutional scientific knowledge of cannabis even as one state after another passes medical marijuana laws right under the nose of the feds. Instead, the rise in popularity of cannabis and cannabis oils and extracts as medicine had been fueled mostly by anecdotal evidence for years as patients and their families found relief for their ailments outside of the medical system.
