Police Cracking Down on Protestors

Police are cracking down on protestors who are caught smoking marijuana in public places during street marches and legal protest gatherings. We're not sure as to why other than the police realize they can enforce the law vs. not being to arrest someone for yelling at them or grimacing at them, so in a way people believe the police are just trying to keep the peace.  No matter, the real reason, the fact is there will always be someone smoking marijuana in public and generally speaking they're not hurting anyone.  The  police can continue to do these crackdowns but really they are basically wasting time and energy by doing so.  In California, the bill to legalize recreational marijuana has passed but the law really does not go into effect for at least a year from now in, 2018. Until then, we will continue to see enforcement action being taken regardless if there is a street protest.  After all, a concert which generates thousands of people in gathering may smoke marijuana in t…

Cannabis Branding

 

Cannabis branding is something most people do not think about when entering into a new start up. Why? Well, mostly because the first thing which comes to mind is "profit margin" which most college professors will tell you is the most important factor to any business as it is your first objective.  In the year 2016, equally important is to protect your brand. Meaning, if you purchase a domain name, make sure it is not going to infringe on an already up and running business which could result in trademark and or copyright infringements and or violations.  This could prove to be very costly and may damage your company's reputation within industry.  We have already seen this done with at least one cannabis related online dating company who had a really cool name, however, it was similar to an already up and running business and that particular business was fuming.  Of course, we can't mention names here as it would be unfair to the each of th…

Legalize | Cannabis Startups

[lightbox link="#"][/lightbox]Legalize® cannabis startups!  Yes, the craze has spread nationwide in the United States and abroad.  Many entrepreneurs are scurrying the internet in order to find out what trends are coming to life. We all know that it has been a battle to legalize cannabis throughout the United States but all the hard work seems to have paid off. Most police agencies agree, it is time to knock it off and stop prosecuting people who possess small amounts of cannabis and that cannabis is basically harmless.  Of course, there are those staunch haters out there who are calling cannabis a gateway drug, well I would venture to say they too cannot prove up such ideology. In California, 2016 will be the year we will find out if the citizens will approve the use of recreational marijuana. If the people vote for it,  you will see California thrive, with new sidewalks, streetlights, street improvements, better trained law enforcement and lowe…
