Call it whatever you want, but SideCar probably won’t be calling its new medical marijuana delivery service in California the “Uber” of pot delivery.

One of the biggest dangers involved with using so-called designer drugs? One tweak to one chemical and something that’s illegal and potentially unsafe could slip past regulators and into the hands of consumers.

Colorado DOT Installing Fake Arcade Racing Game At Pot Shops To Warn Players Against Driving While High
Now that marijuana is legal in Colorado, state officials want to make sure that drivers know it’s not just alcohol that shouldn’t be with you behind the wheel, but pot as well. The state’s Department of Transportation is publicizing that message ahead of the April 20 (4/20) celebrations in the state by way of a fake driving game installed at various dispensaries.
It was only a matter of time: Now that recreational marijuana is legal in five U.S. States, Willie Nelson is fulfilling the silent promise his very existence made to his fans, and planning to launch his own line of weed. Please, sit down before you faint dead away from the shock.
After taking on the form of brownies, cookies, candy and other normal foods for years, edible marijuana goods must now figure out their own identity in Colorado. A proposed bill to loosen the requirements that say edible pot products must look distinctly different from normal food was rejected by a Colorado panel of lawmakers.

There are many arguments for and against using marijuana legally in this country, whether for medical use or for fun, but one drug enforcement official’s reason for his stance against legalizing it in Utah is surely one nobody’s about to forget: He says wild bunnies will get high off the stuff.
It’s been quite a green week in the country, as the last few days have seen the recreational use of marijuana become legal in Alaska and now the capital of the United States, Washington D.C.

Alaska became the third state in the country to legalize recreational marijuana as of today — but only if you can figure out a way to get your hands on some without actually buying it from someone else. Smoking, growing and owning marijuana is all cool under the new law, but handing over money for the stuff or smoking it in public places is still illegal.
When it comes to marijuana in Colorado, now that the stuff is legal for recreational purposes, you better believe retailers are trying to lure in all the greenery loving customers it can.

So let’s say you decided to take a trip and see what all the fuss is about with this marijuana tourism stuff in Colorado (let’s hope you were more successful than Maureen Dowd). But after all that cooking eating, giggling and agreeing with Neil deGrasse Tyson about everything, you forget to grab your marijuana-themed souvenirs and you’re already at the airport to head home. You’re out of luck.
