by Laura Rueda on 23/10/18

According to a survey by the Pew Research Center (a think tank based in Washington that provides information on issues, attitudes and trends that characterize the US and the world) 62% of Americans support the legalization of marijuana. That is, some six out of ten citizens of the country.

Support doubles since 2000

62% may not be an amazing figure compared to the previous year's figure, 61%, just one more point since 2017. However, if we compare it with almost two decades ago it has doubled, since in 2000, only 31% of Americans were in favour of the legalization of cannabis.

Younger generations support legalization

This study has also revealed that to be in favour or not of the legalization of the plant goes by generations. Millennials are the ones that have shown the most support for revoking the illegal status of cannabis, with 74...

Pourquoi en Espagne et en Italie on mélange la marijuana avec du tabac?
by Laura Rueda on 17/10/18

I had to travel to the Netherlands to realize that the ritual we have in Spain to roll a grass cigarette is not the usual one in other parts of the world. "Are you Italians?" Asked the waitress. "No," we replied, "we are Spanish." "It doesn’t matter, Italians or Spaniards, it is forbidden to mix cannabis with tobacco inside the coffeeshop", he made sure that we were clear and when we nodded our heads, he smiled and added. "If you want to do it, you can smoke outside, on the terrace...

by Jennawae McLean on 10/10/18

October 17 is the day, folks! Canada will be the second country to federally legalize cannabis, and tokers everywhere will enjoy an extra special vacation destination!

The main rule in every province is that adults (age depends on province) can carry or share up to 30 grams.

Sudáfrica legaliza el consumo y cultivo de cannabis en el ámbito privado
by Laura Rueda on 28/09/18

Until Tuesday, September 18, 2018, South Africa had a law that prohibited the private consumption of cannabis. Yes, it's like someone forbidding you to eat chocolate in your room. Yesterday the Constitutional Court, located in Johannesburg, declared that this law and another that said that marijuana could not be cultivated at home were unconstitutional and, therefore, declared them null and void. This South African ruling, for obvious reasons, is historical.
