We had predicted based on the changes in legalization, culture in the U.S. as well as decreasing perceptions among teenagers that marijuana was harmful [and] that [accessibility and use] would go up. But it hasn't gone up.

Jeff Sessions

I reject the idea that America will be a better place if marijuana is sold in every corner store. And I am astonished to hear people suggest that we can solve our heroin crisis by legalizing marijuana, so people can trade one life-wrecking dependenc[...]

Hezekiah Allen

At the highest rates, the tax would be a de facto prohibition. Generally speaking, I'm feeling encouraged. But it's a huge, huge experiment.

Terry Garrett - Sustaining Technologies

I think it's kind of doubtful right now, looking at the Trump administration. Let's see them do health care first, round up immigrants, build a wall.

Julie Combs

We're making this happen. This is an industry that can really help our region.

Sam Edwards

It accentuates the intensity of your palate. We are seeing what works and what flavors are coming out.

Sam Edwards

History favors the bold.

Sam Edwards

They can come in and ruin your whole life. They can throw you in prison, take your property.

Patrick Stewart

The spray, however, was much more usable and I would spray my fingers and particularly my thumb joints several times a day. My mother had badly distorted and painful hands. I believe this program of research might result in benefits for people like [...]

Alfonso Duarte Mugica

The presence of the military in this and other areas of the state is because of the important presence of opium poppy and marijuana fields that the drug cartels have been planting in the mountains of Oaxaca. I want to repeat that the Defense Departm[...]

Clement Kwan

I was heartbroken. I love, love, love cultivation.

Scott Campbell

You can eat one of the candies, and it's five milligrams. You don't get high off one candy, it just makes your day a little bit warmer, a little bit better. It's little like 'mommy's little helper.' You could eat one at 3 p.m., and your boss wouldn'[...]

Scott Campbell

You know where you would go to a dinner and bring a fancy bottle of wine? That's what we want, dinner-party culture.

Scott Campbell

There's always that moment, like at the Chateau Marmont, where you'll go to this dinner, and then at one point in the meal, between entrees and desserts, a handful of people will sneak off into the bushes and smoke a joint. We're just trying to make[...]

Scott Campbell

You go in to buy weed, and it's like visiting your parole officer. You get buzzed through three metal gates.

Neil Mahapatra

Through OCT, we hope our strategic partnership with Oxford will support the development of innovative new therapies to help millions of people around the world.

Ahmed Ahmed

Cannabinoid research has started to produce exciting biological discoveries and this research programme is a timely opportunity to increase our understanding of the role of cannabinoids in health and disease.

Ahmed Ahmed

This field holds great promise for developing novel therapeutic opportunities for cancer patients. Two years ago, in Los Angeles I was examined by a doctor and given a note which gave me legal permission to purchase, from a registered outlet, cannab[...]

Jeff Sessions

I realize this may be an unfashionable belief in a time of growing tolerance of drug use. But too many lives are at stake to worry about being fashionable. I reject the idea that America will be a better place if marijuana is sold in every corner st[...]

Jeff Sessions

I've heard people say we could solve our heroin problem with marijuana. How stupid is that? Give me a break!

Jeff Sessions

I am determined that this country will not go backwards. President Trump gave us a clear directive. It's the policy of this administration to reduce crime in America, not preside over an increase in crime, but reduce crime. The crime rate in our cou[...]

Robert Gebelhoff

The relationship of marijuana use to public health is one of the most confounding topics in science. As soon as one study is published making a claim about the safety of the drug, another is often published warning of the exact opposite.

Jake Browne

In two decades of smoking weed, I've never seen anything that looks like that. People typically smoke the flower of the plant, but here you can clearly see stems and leaves in there as well, parts that should be discarded. Inhaling that would be lik[...]

Mark Pugash

Our history of enforcing the law against illegal cannabis dispensaries is well established. This is the latest effort in our law enforcement, and I'm certain there will be further action.

David Schubert

I can go to a medical marijuana dispensary and buy marijuana, or I can grow it, but I can't bring it into a lab to study it, because of the federal restriction. It's a totally unexplored area, because researchers have been stopped by the DEA, due to[...]

Michael Felberbaum - FDA

Ongoing scientific and medical evaluation determined at this time that the marijuana plant continues to have high potential for abuse and does not meet the criteria outlined by the DEA for currently accepted medical use, requiring its continued plac[...]

David Schubert

The pharmaceutical companies want to stop the use of cannabis in the research community because it's a natural product, so it can't be patented. That's the reason they don't have any incentive to use it (cannabis) in the development of new drugs. … [...]

Edward García

That people can even pay their taxes is because they are growing marijuana.

Mauricio Caso

What's important here is we don't go 500 years backward to the times where indigenous people were working for outsiders and marginalized.

Blanca Riveros

How am I supposed to feed my family? It would be a miracle for us.

Federico Cock-Correa

We felt the conflict, too, with our own flesh.

Elmer Orozco

Other agriculture isn't profitable here.

Mauricio Caso

We Nasa walk slowly but safely. You men from Medellín tend to be crafty and fast.

Blanca Riveros

Isn't it all just beautiful?

Federico Cock-Correa

The peasants were forced to produce these plants.

Mauricio Caso

We will never forgive what they did in Toribío.

Blanca Riveros

It will be much more technical with the company.

Bill Lowe

He was a passenger in a vehicle that was stopped for a traffic violation. The trooper recognized the odor of marijuana, and marijuana was located in his possession.

Michael Fasman

We think it's really lifted her spirits and made her a happier dog. It's not that she's changed. She's just back to her good old self.

Alison Ettel

What we find is a lot of the animals are coming to us when there are no other options and pharmaceuticals haven't worked for that animal. They're at that last resort, and cannabis is really good for those types of situations.

Barbara Stein

All I know is that none of the traditional medications she got from the vet worked, but the cannabis did. I swear by the stuff.

Ken Pawlowski

Our hands really are tied. Definitely we're getting more questions from clients asking about it for their pets, but unfortunately we don't have any answers for them.

Lynne Tingle

You just see a real difference in their spirit. They're just not in pain, so they're happier and they're moving better. They just get a new lease on life.

Ayelet Shaked

Israel cannot shut its eyes to the changes being made across the world in respect to marijuana consumption and its effects.

Joe Brezny

We've removed the marijuana. There will be no smoking area, no edibles competition, no cannabis topicals or lotions.

Adrienne Jones

We must have the confidence and trust of the citizens of Maryland to be effective legislators.

Dan K. Morhaim

While I have consistently maintained – and do today – that I did nothing wrong and complied with all laws, that was not enough. The harsh fact is that being technically right is not enough. I am concerned about the fairness of a process that penaliz[...]

Amelia Chassé

Sweeping these problems under the rug undermines public trust in our institutions of government.

Clifford Drusinsky

Marijuana relaxes me and allows me to go into a controlled, meditational place. When I get high, I train smarter and focus on form.

Yasmin Hurd

It's shocking to me. Cannabis decreases reaction time, it definitely impacts motor function. I don't see how encouraging intoxication during workouts is something positive.

Jim McAlpine

If you use it right, cannabis takes the things you love and lets you love them more. With fitness, that can help get you into the zone, into eye-of-the-tiger mode.

Gordy Megroz

While stoned, the experience is much different. I can still feel the pain, but I'm not fixated on it; my mind is lost in random thoughts. Finally, my legs stop turning over quickly enough and I hit the stop button: 19:30. Interesting. I repeat the t[...]

Yasmin Hurd

People could work through their pain threshold in a way that could harm themselves because they are tearing muscles and they're not going to feel them. That to me is the main worry.

Thomas Garrett

Virginia is more than capable of handling its own marijuana policy, as are states such as Colorado or California.

Jeff Sessions

Good people don't smoke marijuana.

Thomas Garrett

This step allows states to determine appropriate medicinal use and allows for industrial hemp growth, something that will provide a major economic boost to agricultural development in Southside Virginia.

Amir Englund

We don't always have the luxury of waiting for a lot of research and we can sometimes use the scant evidence we have to try and make some kind of best case judgment. We are fairly confident that higher THC levels in cannabis are not a good thing, an[...]

Amir Englund

A lot of countries are deciding to change their cannabis policies to more permissive ones and we don't know whether that will lead to significantly more use and problems, but we do know there are vulnerable groups out there.

Jeff Sessions

I don't think America will be a better place when more people, especially young people, smoke pot.

Mike Liszewski

Sessions has yet to make such a commitment to respect state medical cannabis laws.

Jeff Sessions

Experts are telling me there's more violence around marijuana than one would think. I am definitely not a fan of expanded use of marijuana. But states, they can pass the laws they choose. I would just say, it does remain a violation of federal law t[...]

Seth Ammerman

Parents will say, 'I use it moderately and I'm fine with it, so it's really benign and not a problem if my kid uses it,'.

Seth Ammerman

Parents will say, I use it moderately and I'm fine with it, so it's really benign and not a problem if my kid uses it.

Sean Spicer

The president understands the pain and suffering that many people go through who are facing, especially terminal diseases, and the comfort that some of these drugs, including medical marijuana, can bring to them….

Cheryl Shuman

They're helping to legitimize marijuana. Marijuana is fast becoming cool and glamorous.

Matt Karnes - GreenWave

I think the states will still have the right to enforce their own laws. I think they will still let the states decide, but have more enforcement around it, or deploy more resources for the federal government to go after those committing any type of [...]

Ian Eisenberg

I always have concerns, but I did not take Spicer's comments to be as ominous as everyone else did ... it seemed to be an off-the-cuff comment. This is always serious, but it isn't as if the sky is falling. We are such a well-regulated, seed-to-sale[...]

Mason Tvert

Nothing the press secretary said indicates a specific plan or position the administration is taking.

Sean Spicer

Well, I think that is a question for the Department of Justice.I do believe you'll see greater enforcement of it. Because again there is a big difference between the medical use … that's very different from the recreational use, which is something t[...]

Sean Spicer

Well I think that's a question for the Department of Justice. I do believe you'll see greater enforcement of it. Because again there's a big difference between the medical use ... that's very different than the recreational use, which is something t[...]

Paul Franklin

Almost every single room had been converted for the wholesale production of cannabis plants, and there was a large amount of evidence of previous crops. This was an enormous set up.

Mike McGuire

This country has evolved and I would hope that our federal leaders have evolved as well.

Pamela Johnston

When you think about a cannabis product or service, it doesn't lend itself to all of your traditional types of advertising and marketing, not only because of legality but because you have a very curious consumer - we're going to make a gross general[...]

Pamela Johnston

So if you have a clueless, curious person, even if you were a cannabis enthusiast, how could you really be educated [about the product] unless it was part of your job or your life's passion? This combination – of clueless and curious - is very inter[...]

Pamela Johnston

The trends are leaning towards use-cases specific markets – this is good for a concert, this is good for date night, this is good for Sunday morning.

Jeff Sessions

"It's not so much the attorney general's job to decide what laws to enforce. We should do our job and enforce laws effectively as we are able,"

Mitch Yergert

When you start with no knowledge at all, it's rough. Nobody in our agency ever grew marijuana, so how are we supposed to develop best practices? It hasn't gotten a lot more warm and fuzzy. I think they look at us as, What an annoyance!' I mean, they[...]

David Boyer

It's huge. No longer will we be punishing adults for using a safer substance than alcohol. We're not making criminals out of thousands of Mainers who choose to use marijuana.

Steve Richard

Burned my first legal 'J' on my front porch. I tried to get others to join me, but it was late.

Scott Gagnon

We've gone from a campaign to doing everything we can to mitigate the risk. The statehouse will provide the voice for the half of Maine that said no to Question One.

Gilad Erdan

This means that we are moving toward fines... and that criminal prosecutions will only be used as a last resort. Police will be able to redirect resources ... away from normative personal users and focus instead on dangerous drugs.

Hermann Gröhe

Those who are severely ill need to get the best possible treatment and that includes health insurance funds paying for cannabis as a medicine for those who are chronically ill if they can't be effectively treated any other way.

Joshua Miller

Our constituents think it is time for lawmakers to pass this legislation, and we should listen to them. If we fail to pass the bill this year, we will lose significant ground to Massachusetts.

Juan Sartori

Product that was illegal, but was a big market, is become a standard one. It's a big industry that is just starting, and with an interesting future.

Juan Sartori

Public opinion has completely changed on the subject. Every single poll all around the world is showing that people now are in favor of relaxation or legalization.

Adam Eidinger

This is political warfare. There is no respect in Washington for the marijuana movement or its business interest right now.

Mark Roesler - CMG Worldwide

We have seen people address marijuana. We've seen liquor addressed.

David Boyer

Mainers will no longer be punished for using a substance that is safer than alcohol. We look forward to working with the legislature to ensure a timely implementation of Question 1, which will provide adults with a legal way to purchase marijuana fr[...]

Taylor West

What the industry needs is a sustainable solution that services the entire industry instead of tinkering around the edges. You don't have to be fully in favor of legalized marijuana to know that it helps no one to force these businesses outside the [...]

Paul R. LePage

There is nothing I can do until the legislature gives me money to set up the infrastructure.I don't think that they realize what they have done. we need to sit down and look at this.

Jaime Andres Vinasco

The cannabis from California, for the Tijuanenses, or residents of Tijuana, has become, for the great majority, a luxury item. Quite a paradoxical phenomenon.

Stan Rosenberg

This short delay will allow the necessary time for the legislature to work with stakeholders on improving the new law. Luckily, we are in a position where we can learn from the experiences of other states to implement the most responsible recreation[...]

Jim Borghesani

We're very disappointed with what they did and with the way they did it. We're disappointed that they extended this awkward period we're in now where possession is legal but sales are not.

Benjamin Hansen

Public safety doesn't decrease with increased access to marijuana, rather it improves.

Julian Santaella-Tenorio

Instead of seeing an increase in fatalities, we saw a reduction, which was totally unexpected.

Benjamin Hansen

We don't know the public health consequences of those types of policy changes yet.

Alain Joffe

Sound public policy should be based on data that are meticulously collected and thoughtfully analyzed. The evolving status of marijuana in the United States provides a critical opportunity for us to do so.

Magdalena Cerdá

Across the country there has been a decreased perception of risk and an increase in marijuana use among adolescents.

Donald J. Trump

Medical marijuana, medical? I'm in favor of it a hundred percent.

Nora Volkow

Although more research is needed, there is strong reason to believe marijuana could be harmful to fetal development. Women who are pregnant should avoid using marijuana, even though it might seem like a 'natural' solution to their nausea.

Qiana L. Brown

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists suggests that physicians refrain from prescribing or suggesting the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes during preconception, pregnancy, and lactation. This is particularly important in the[...]

Michael Gorenstein

If you build a culture and recruit a group of people that really represent what your brand is, you don't need to advertise. The brand recognition will follow.

John Fowler

A good analogy would be Intel chips. Whether you're buying an Apple or a Dell, you're looking for Intel inside as a mark of quality.

Olivia Mannix

Be professional, that's really the best advice. Have education and information behind your brand.

Bruce Linton

We were not going to be using swirly, psychedelic colors. We're going to be using the chance to put the name 'Tweed' on the package.

Aaron Salz

If you've been able to build a brand presence ahead of potentially more restrictive rules on advertising, you're going to have a leg up.

Mark McPherson

We had a board member who introduced the idea back in June who indicated he felt the need for this because of the distance and response time (from law enforcement) as well as all the (potential) trouble from marijuana grows.

Keith Saunders

Ultimately, we are moving toward taking the existing marijuana market in Massachusetts and bringing it above board.

Keith Saunders

Yesterday this would have been a $100 fine.

Jim Borghesani

When you look at Jeff Sessions' comments around marijuana, you can't help but be worried. Until we see the way they are going to move, it's difficult to say.

Robert Capecchi

I don't think they're going to aggressively go after the businesses and I really don't think they're going to start arresting patients. I cannot imagine individuals in Mississippi want their tax dollars to go toward breaking up medical marijuana bus[...]

Daniel Bennett

Within certain limits, the new law authorizes some conduct that had previously been prohibited. Beyond those limits, however, possession, cultivation and distribution of marijuana remain illegal under state law.

Bill Downing

I am both celebrating and worrying that the law might not be implemented properly.

Bill Downing

The only limitation is how willing they are to tread on the will of their constituents.

Lisa Sanchez

It's been years that we've been fighting for acknowledgment and approval and recognition of the medical and therapeutic uses of cannabis, and today we finally have something.

Nora Volkow

"Clearly our public health prevention efforts, as well as policy changes to reduce availability, are working to reduce teen drug use, especially among eighth graders". "However, when 6 percent of high school seniors are using marijuana daily, and ne[...]

Nora Volkow

Clearly our public health prevention efforts, as well as policy changes to reduce availability, are working to reduce teen drug use, especially among eighth graders. However, when 6 percent of high school seniors are using marijuana daily, and new s[...]

Juan Manuel Santos

The war has not been won and won't be won. It makes no sense for a peasant who grows marijuana to be convicted or killed when marijuana is legal in eight US states. It's time to change our strategy.

Steve Kerr

... The issue that's really important is how do we do what's best for the players? But I understand that it's a perception issue around the country and the NFL, NBA, it's a business, so you don't want your customers thinking, These guys are a bunch [...]

Steve Kerr

First, I'm disappointed it didn't work. I really wanted some relief and I didn't get it. Having done the research it was well worth a try. You can see it with our country, our country is starting to wisen up on the medicinal marijuana side. I hope w[...]

Steve Kerr

I'm actually kind of glad it became an issue because I think it's a very important issue to talk about, having gone through a tough spell over the last year with my own recovery back surgery, a lot of pain, chronic pain.

Klay Thompson

Steve's open-minded, and obviously with the way the world's going, if there's anything you can do that's medicinal, people are all for it, especially when there's stuff like Crohn's disease out there, glaucoma, a bunch of stuff, cancer. But not recr[...]

Steve Kerr

I'm always struck every time I'm home on the couch watching a sporting event, some drug commercial comes on, they show these happy people jumping in a lake, rowing a boat, then you just wait for the qualifier. Side effects include suicidal thoughts [...]

Steve Kerr

I guess maybe I can even get in some trouble for this, but I've actually tried it twice during the last year and a half, when I've been going through this chronic pain that I've been dealing with. A lot of research, a lot of advice from people, and [...]

Steve Kerr

I would hope so, and I'm not a pot person. It doesn't agree with me.

David West

He's a public figure with some notoriety making a statement. It brings more attention to a cause for something that people feel like there needs to be a shift in the way we monitor it and change things. Obviously somebody of his stature can give a l[...]

Steve Kerr

I have no idea if I would, maybe I would have failed a drug test, I don't even know if I'm subject to a drug test or any laws from the NBA. I tried it and it didn't help at all.

Cara Crabb-Burnham

When you walk into a job interview, being able to say, I have trained myself on this, I have gone through a school and have a certificate that says I am competent in the cannabis industry' is definitely a leg up from somebody who doesn't have any ba[...]

Simon Harris

While there are elements I do not and will not support, I don't wish to divide the Dail (parliament). I share the concerns of patients who believe that cannabis should be a treatment option for certain medical conditions and I recognize the urgency [...]

Anita Thompson

I am in the process of making the strains available to those who would like to enjoy the authentic Gonzo strains in legal states. I am looking forward to making the authentic strains available in legal states to support the farm and the scholarships.

Curtis Graves

We have ski industries out here, and if they really took a hard line on marijuana use, they would have to shut down.

Edward Yost

Yes, you may be able to have (marijuana) at home, but that doesn't mean it's OK in the workplace.

George Atallah

Certainly given some of the medical research out there, marijuana is going to be one of the substances we talk a look at.

Vivek Murthy

We have made progress. How do we keep that progress going? A key part is making sure people have insurance coverage. Marijuana is in fact addictive.

Emmett Reistroffer

It's the sensible thing to do. This is about personal responsibility and respecting adults who want to have a place to enjoy cannabis.

Rachel O'Bryan

Back in 2012, marijuana legalization passed with a strong majority in Denver ... and now about four years later, I-300 passed with a much smaller margin. We think many voters voted in favor of marijuana legalization, but didn't want to see marijuana[...]

Kayvan Khalatbari

This is a victory for cannabis consumers who, like alcohol consumers, simply want the option to enjoy cannabis in social settings. It is also a victory for the city of Denver, its diverse neighborhoods and those who don't consume cannabis, as it wil[...]

Mason Tvert

The entire goal of this initiative is to provide adults with private places where they can consume cannabis so they're not consuming in public.

Donald J. Trump

In terms of marijuana and legalization, I think that should be a state issue, state-by-state. I really think that we should study Colorado, see what's happening.

Danielle Keane

Our landslide success really affirms that public opinion to legalize marijuana is not the minority opinion, and it is clear that it is here to stay.

Ethan Nadelmann

Marijuana legalization is now supported by a growing number of Republicans, a majority of Republican millennials and by a number of people in the marijuana industry. It's also progressed pretty far. Shutting it down would not be an easy thing to do.

Lynne Lyman

Every state [that has legalized recreational or medical marijuana] has used those guidelines as the North Star on how to write your new state law. So we have no idea ... whether a Trump administration will send in the DEA or FBI to shut down Califor[...]

Seth Liebsohn

We knew if it passed here, there probably wouldn't be any states that could stop it. As the old saying goes, we were 'thinking nationally but acting locally.

Ethan Nadelmann

You don't do ballot initiatives, at least with the limited resources we have, in order to persuade people to vote for something.

Ethan Nadelmann

You start off with the majority in your favor and try to hang on as the election approaches and ward off scare tactics.

Rob Kampia

The end of prohibition is near, and it would be a mistake for the federal government to continue waging war on its own nonviolent citizens. How do you ask a DEA agent to be the last man to enforce a mistake? These votes send a clear message to feder[...]

Donald J. Trump

I think medical should happen – right? Don't we agree? And then I really believe we should leave it up to the states.

Gavin Newsom

This is the beginning of the end of the war on marijuana in the United States.

Graham Shaw

I'm not necessarily stoked nor surprised. I am very happy that the war on cannabis in California is finally over.

Nikki Lastreto

I'm thrilled. I'm so excited that California can now move forward.

Ken Corney

We are, of course, disappointed.

Jeffrey Zekauskas

Various states with large populations are voting on marijuana legislation on Tuesday, Nov. 8, including California for recreational use and Florida for medical use. Polls point to favorable votes both in California and Florida.

William Chappell - SunTrust Robinson Humphrey

Once recreational marijuana is legalized in a state, SMG has seen on average a 2x jump in its hydroponics business in that state.

John Matsusaka

It's changed in the minds of these voters from being like cocaine to being like beer.

Nick Morrow

That's what's going on with cannabis testing. Breath, oral, fluid, saliva – all of them are competing to come out with the easiest, greatest devices. Maybe those devices aren't ready for prime time yet, but everybody wants to get the patents. As far[...]

Bradley Tusk

Cannabis technology will soar, but the federal government will decline to solve the problems around banking, transportation and interstate commerce.

Wendy Underhill - National Conference of State Legislatures

Marijuana is the big one this year with nine measures. It's part of a year or more trend toward states allowing marijuana for recreation. Other states are adopting medical marijuana.

Nick Morrow

There's a little bit of hype. The good thing about the U.S. is if there's a way to make a dollar, you can bet people will be lined up around the block to make the next best mousetrap. That's what's going on with cannabis testing. Breath, oral, fluid[...]

Jude Thilman

These numbers are designed to make government drool and say, How much can we get out of our cultivators and farmers? The farmers are not doing that well. People are barely getting by.

Scott Matas

If the industry takes off, the revenue could be life-changing for this community.

Craig Green

It ends up costing more in the end.

David Boyer

It's recognition of, our current system prohibiting marijuana hasn't worked and it's cost a lot of money. Some of it is a symptom of our Congress and even our local state legislature not taking up the issues the people want.

Rick Kimball

It allows you to produce products, which are cannabis products but let somebody else, the licensees, deal with the regulatory issues and the regulatory conflict we have between the feds and the states.

Lindy Snider

Right now I'm looking at about nine companies. There are so many good ones.

Fulton Connor

For us it's a technology play. We don't want to be breaking the law.

Clyde Barrow

The marijuana industry is emerging as another form of recreation and entertainment. Given the casino industry's difficulties attracting millennials, marijuana is probably perceived as a direct competitor with casinos for entertainment dollars. Anoth[...]

Dina Titus

I think it will be as much of a challenge for us as it will be a boon for us, because there's no place in the world like Vegas.

Tick Segerblom

It's somewhere you do things you wouldn't normally do. Have fun, party, do things you wouldn't do at home. Take a picture and brag about it.

Virginia Valentine

I don't know that this is a game changer in terms of tourism. We're really known for other things. You may attract people or turn them off.

Derek Peterson - Terra Tech

I really think this would be the third-largest market in the country.

Paul Armentano

It's well established that the majority of Americans now believe that the responsible use of marijuana by adults should not be a criminal offense.

Ethan Nadelmann

We're seeing a massive transformation from an illicit economy worth tens of billions of dollars into a legal economy that will probably be worth even more than that. Legalizing marijuana, taxing and regulating it, is not going to solve a state's bud[...]

Taylor West

If all nine initiatives were to pass, we'd have approximately 62 percent of the US population living in a state where medical or adult-use cannabis access is legal. That's huge.

Joseph Henchman

It's certainly quite a bit of revenue. It's enough to pay for some extra police or some extra teachers, but you're just not going to be able to replace many of your other taxes with that revenue.

Michael Rosensaft - Katten Muchin Rosenman
Scott Resnik - Katten Muchin Rosenman

Forcing him off the medical marijuana and forcing him to return to addictive opioids would impair his Sixth Amendment right to participate fully in his defense and his Fifth (Amendment) right to due process.

Earl Blumenauer

There's not a single human being who thinks there is any benefit at all in forcing marijuana business to be conducted on an all-cash basis.

Sundie Seefried - Partner Colorado Credit Union

If you don't have a little fear going into this because of the illegality at the federal level, you're probably not the person to do this job.

Tom Dresslar

This was a problem created by federal law, and it needs a federal solution.

Janet Sanchez

We're not being asked to go over to the gun dealer and ask them if they're making appropriate background checks.

Sundie Seefried - Partner Colorado Credit Union

Our program is designed with eyes on the business, eyes on the owner, eyes on the money.

Matt Simons

More people have direct experience with marijuana or know someone who has, and that leads to it being demystified.

Jim McAlpine

I'm trying to put a new face on what cannabis is.

Jim McAlpine

I like to consume before I go swimming. For me, that's really helpful. About halfway through the swim I get bored, and it kicks in and it gives me focus. The guy next to me might drown because he ate that cannabis, so it affects everyone differently.

Megan Shanahan - Hamilton

It is appropriate that the marijuana that was found in the vehicle come in during the course of the trial if the defense so chooses to present that.

Laura Costa

It will end traditional marijuana farming like this.

Tim Blake

You're going to see cannabis grow at levels people can't even fathom. It's going to bring all that business back to California.

Eric Frankel - Green Street Advisors

There is a lot of risk. The business could get shut down in five or 10 years. Let's say it gets deregulated and the cost of cannabis comes down.

Jeremy Unruh - Pharmacann

Given the difficulty of financing the cannabis space we're perfectly happy with the proposed relationship with a company like IIP. There is a tremendous opportunity in the cannabis space. This is the ground floor of a brand-new industry.

Harrison Phillips - Viridian Capital

Australia has moved to the forefront of medical marijuana by leveraging Canadian expertise.

Troy Dayton

Israel has been at the forefront of medical cannabis research for years now. They've been creating a fertile environment for medical research.

Scott L. Greiper - Viridian Capital

We don't see that size of investment activity anywhere in the world for a single company in the cannabis marketplace. Canada is the most mature of the legal cannabis marketplaces in the world.

Troy Dayton

There is an industry there that's ripe for growth.

Troy Dayton

It looks a lot like the California industry did in the late '90s and early 2000s, where you have a quasi-legal situation happening, where the public is fine with it and the government is OK with it, but it's not yet taxed and regulated. There is an [...]

Tom Angell

It's more clear than ever that legalization is the future. More politicians – presidential candidates included – would do themselves a big favor to take note of the clear trend and then vocally support legislation catering to the growing majority of[...]

Kyle Sherman - Flowhub

It's concerning to me that cannabis legalization hasn't received much attention during this election cycle. Six states have full adult-use legalization on the ballot, yet what do the candidates have to say?

Daniel Conway

The Sacramento region should be to cannabis what Detroit is to automobiles in terms of both a center of innovation as well as production. This region has the ability to be to cannabis what Sonoma and Napa are to wine.

Corey Buck

We talk with the (marijuana) grower to understand what traits they saw in the marijuana . . . whether it's earthy notes, citrus notes, herbal notes, things that we could play off.

Jeffrey Zekauskas

The hydroponics market taps into marijuana demand and the company now has a growth option that we think an investor is able to capture for about the price of the traditional business.

Dan Nicholls

It's really hard to say right now how much these companies will be worth.

Dan Nicholls

These are very risky stocks and not all of them are going to survive.

Beau Whitney

That shut us out completely out of the recreational market, which was our original strategy.

James Knox

They literally vanished within a three-month time period. The commerce they created, the jobs, it's all gone. They're spending their money somewhere else.

Beau Whitney

We just want a level playing field. We're just looking for reasonable regulation.

Roger Morgan - Drug Enforcement Administration

The fertilizers and pesticides used are polluting the ground and the water table ... It's an environmental disaster, aside from the fact that today's high potency marijuana is extremely harmful [to users].

Josh Altic

Conventional wisdom for decades has been that there are certain issues that will increase voter turnout to benefit certain parties. Democrats have relied on marijuana measures for that purpose for a long time. They claim that they're very successful[...]

Roger Morgan - Drug Enforcement Administration

We already have over 50,000 illegal outdoor cultivation sites that are destroying our natural resources. The fertilizers and pesticides used are polluting the ground and the water table ... It's an environmental disaster, aside from the fact that to[...]

Keith Stroup

I think, without question, we are going to win California, and I really do believe that is the ultimate tipping point for this issue nationwide.

Josh Altic

I think it's safe to say that turnout will be higher because of having these issues on the ballot. I'm not as comfortable claiming that it's going to be a huge advantage for one party or the other.

Carla Lowe

The increase of kids' use has gone up dramatically. Many of those kids get into drugs, gangs and crime ... The social costs have been identified.

Roger Morgan - Drug Enforcement Administration

It's an illegal drug by federal standards for good reason.

Keith Stroup

There's nothing more powerful when you're trying to affect social change than having examples out there that are actually working.

Keith Stroup

They can't really make those arguments effectively today because we have more than two years of a track record in Colorado and Washington.

Scott Gagnon

There would be nothing in Maine to prevent a young person from having marijuana. We're asking, was it purposeful, or was it just gross negligence? If it's gross negligence, I'm not sure I want those people writing drug policy.

Alex Perry

It's still looked down upon as a not-very-sophisticated thing. If I asked my mom or my dad what they smell, they're going to say, skunk,' or, It smells like marijuana.' But it's like wine or anything else. There's more flavor profile there.

Tamara Haddad - Lyons

I am not a savant with this. I enjoy (marijuana) occasionally. I enjoy it with friends. I'm learning more about it.

Tamara Haddad - Lyons

I have also munched out after being at the bar and drinking martinis and thinking, Taco Bell sounds great.

Michel Doucet - Brunswick

This is not a mainstream programme.

Michel Doucet - Brunswick

We're looking at training qualified employees to meet the needs of industry, versus training students at large.

Steve Dodge

We are asking farmers to come out from behind the curtain, but not providing the assurances they need. This law is setting the state up for failure.

Ron Kammerzell

It's really a step in enhancing public safety and making sure that marijuana is out of the hands of children.

Jonathan Singer

We want to ensure that people genuinely know the difference between a Duncan Hines brownie and a marijuana brownie, just by looking at it.

Kerr Putney

They look in the car and they see the marijuana, they don't act. They see the gun and they think they need to.

Ben Allen

But they're clearly paying close attention.

Thorkild Fogde

This is not just about hash. It's about organized crime and violence. I hope that what we're seeing today is an attempt to actively help the police.

Paul Armentano

There is no credible justification for a 'marijuana exception' to the US Constitution. Responsible adults who use cannabis in a manner that is compliant with the laws of their states ought to receive the same legal rights and protections as do other[...]

Howard Zucker - Department of Health

Since launching the program, the Department has worked closely with doctors, patients and registered organizations to gather information relevant to strengthening the program in anticipation of the required two-year report. We are constantly evaluat[...]

Norton Arbelaez

This is indicative of the first wave of issues that a jurisdiction has to deal with when they decide to regulate cannabis.

Norton Arbelaez

For the most part, after the issue is really looked at… they come on board through the practical necessity that people need counsel and that this is legal under state law.

Norton Arbelaez

I don't think you take it lying down. You force the issue. It sometimes requires working within the current system and having a dialogue with the bar association and members to bring about change.

Marta Tagle

In Mexico there is a lot of biases and there is a lack of information on these types of expos in society. These types of expos are very important so that people can remove the stigma of marijuana and the people who consume marijuana are criminals. I[...]

Angeline Nanni - CannaMed

It's not only the broad spectrum of conditions and ailments that they've put out there, but also the broad spectrum of health care practitioners that can recommend it.

Troy Dayton

Part of the reason I think why a lot of people want to get these licenses now is that they imagine that adult-use legalization will come sometime, and they will already have a brand and a market and customers and really have an advantage if the mark[...]

Gerard Evans

It's failed in other states because they've been too restrictive about the kinds of diseases and ailments that could be utilized by physicians, and I think in Maryland they've taken the opposite approach, which generates the interest because they ap[...]

Kevin Sabat - Drug Enforcement Administration

I think it was a balanced decision and isn't surprising to the scientific community.

Ron Wyden

The DEA's decision flies in the face of choices made freely by voters in Oregon and many other states about the legality of marijuana.

Rusty Payne - Drug Enforcement Administration

We are tethered to science and bound by statute.

Chuck Rosenberg - Drug Enforcement Administration

If the scientific understanding about marijuana changes – and it could change – then the decision could change. But we will remain tethered to science, as we must, and as the statute demands.

Kevin Sabet

This is a good day for science. This shows that the federal government is flexible on legitimate research but is nowhere near wanting to legalize marijuana.

Perry Solomon

To use cannabis in that sense for pain relief instead of the usual things you're able to use now, like opioids, is hands down why you would use it.

Kevin Hill

Fewer opioid prescriptions in medical marijuana states might be a good thing, but I am concerned about the overall quality of care delivered in medical marijuana specialty clinics.

W. David Bradford

The results show that marijuana might be beneficial with diverting people away from opioids.

Sarah Seiter

We're interested in presenting a forum for all sides of deep community conversations about marijuana, its history, politics, culture and impacts on our state.

Chris Walsh

Marijuana in general doesn't take up much shelf space. You can have a reasonably small space dispensary or store and fit a lot of product into it.

Leslie Bocskor

Marijuana is one of the most profitable industries in the United States.

Troy Dayton

There's been a lot of marijuana-related investments into California.

Cory Salzillo

The dangers of marijuana are pretty clear in terms of motorist safety, criminal activity, impacts on society. We don't believe that decriminalization will upend the black market.

Mason Tvert

These statistics clearly debunk the theory that making marijuana legal for adults will result in more teen use.

Kimberly Nelson - Microsoft

Kind's strategic industry positioning, experienced team and top-notch-technology running in the Microsoft Azure Government cloud, made for an easy decision to align efforts. Kind agreed that Azure Government is the only cloud platform designed to me[...]

Anne Gordon

I think the best thing for us is to allow our regular customers to have an opportunity to not have to wait in line. And we know who they are; they come in and everything is ready to go.

Carri R. Warshak

Tobacco use is clearly detrimental to fetal health, and therefore baby health. It is very likely that marijuana use shares some of the untoward effects. To optimize fetal health and the health of the child, it is best to avoid use of marijuana and t[...]

Hermann Gröhe

Our goal is to provide the best care for seriously ill people. We want the costs of patients using medical marijuana to be covered by their health insurance plans when there is no other cure.

Jennifer Conforti

I ended up giving her her first dose and weaning her off her seizure meds, and I'm telling you the raging stopped, completely stopped.

Jennifer Conforti

I'm not advocating for recreational use. It's for my daughter. She actually has a quality of life now. We've been doing it for a year-and-a-half now and we're not going to stop.

Jennifer Conforti

I was still worried that the Department of Family Services would take my daughter away. I was still worried the sheriff ... would show up at my door and arrest me ... but after I saw her teachers walking her out like that, that was it. I didn't care[...]

Jennifer Conforti

There are some pretty tenacious parents who are fighting.

Enrique Pena Nieto

Our country has suffered the harmful effects of drug-linked organised crime. Thankfully, a new global consensus is gradually gathering steam in favour of a reform to the international drug regime.

Enrique Pena Nieto

This initiative would allow us to authorise the use of medicine derived from marijuana and/or its active ingredients.

John Hickenlooper

Back in the day, candy cigarettes desensitized kids to the dangers of tobacco - and today, pot-infused gummy bears send the wrong message to our kids about marijuana.

Jessica Rabe - ConvergeX

Cannabis is still illegal on the federal level, so it makes investing very risky.

Suzanne Sisley - Heliospectra

In the United States it's easier to study heroin than marijuana. With marijuana you have to go through added layers of government red tape. It highlights the way marijuana research is being shackled by politics.

Raphael Mechoulam

Cannabinoid research was and still is viewed positively by government committees. law enforcement was not involved in study approval.

Jane Philpott

We are committed, as you know, to making sure that Canadians who require marijuana for medical purposes have appropriate access to that.

Magdalena Cerdá

Our study found that regular cannabis users experienced downward social mobility and more financial problems such as troubles with debt and cash flow than those who did not report such persistent use. Regular long-term users also had more antisocial[...]

Avshalom Caspi

These findings did not arise because cannabis users were prosecuted and had a criminal record. Even among cannabis users who were never convicted for a cannabis offense, we found that persistent and regular cannabis use was linked to economic and so[...]

Tom Angell

At the end of the day, if officials in Nebraska and Oklahoma are upset about how much time and resources their police are spending on marijuana cases, as they said in their briefs, they should join Colorado in replacing prohibition with legalization[...]

Clarence Thomas

I'm proud of the legal team in my office that successfully defended this complicated case. I continue to believe that this lawsuit was not the way to properly address the challenges posed by legalized marijuana. But the problems are not going away. [...]

Jim Cramer

If you want to prescribe actual medical marijuana, a real doctor is reluctant to do it because there is no uniform standard, and all you really want is the pure cannabinoid. This is a way to get rid of a terrible, terrible drug, oxycodone.

Erin Hanlon

We know that when people use marijuana, they overeat. And they tend to eat things that are yummy and rewarding.

Gaelan Bloomfield - MMJ Phytotech

The market for medicinal cannabis in Australia is substantial. The number of patients that could be targeted could be people with epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, while there is the other spectrum of people with chronic pain.

Reto Auer

Recreational marijuana users use it to get high, to benefit from the transient change it produces. But this transient effect might have long term consequences on the way the brain processes information and could also have direct toxic effects on neu[...]

Wayne Hall

People who used occasionally in their 20s and discontinue as most cannabis users do, are at low risk of developing any cognitive impairment. But cannabis is a drug, and like all drugs, it can harm users when used in particular ways. This message nee[...]

Stephen Loomis

The politics in this city is absolutely appalling, and those fired will get their jobs back. How many people have to tell us this was a justified shooting? It's tragic that it went down this way, but at the end of the day, two people high on crack c[...]

Stephen Schultz - GW Pharmaceuticals

It's likely a market that is of some interest to the company, but not immediate interest.

Daniel Hawcutt

Undertaking phase one studies is highly specialist work.

Joaquin 'El Chapo

Well, from the time I was 15 and after, where I come from, which is the municipality of Badiraguato, I was raised in a ranch named La Tuna, in that area, and up until today, there are no job opportunities. The only way to have money to buy food, to [...]

Edward M. Bednarczyk

They're trying to put the medical back in medical marijuana and not make it the farce that it has become in some states.

Edward M. Bednarczyk

Actually, what they're making an attempt to do is near legitimatize med marijuana.

Paul Armentano

This program is designed to be politically expedient. It is not designed to best address the needs of legitimate patients who could most likely benefit from medical cannabis, or to provide them reasonable or appropriate access. At best, it could be [...]

Enrique Pena Nieto

This ruling will open the door to a broad debate on the best way to regulate marijuana consumption. We need to establish measures so people clearly know which are or aren't the adverse effects of marijuana use.

Roberto Conde

The problems with consumption don't come from the regulation the law establishes. The law establishes this regulation for the very purpose of facing the negative consequences marijuana consumption has on our society.

Martin Collazo

Today is a historic day, not only for Uruguay, but the whole world. Uruguay is the first country to regulate the marijuana market. There is a big stake now for social organisations to continue working for the efficiency of this programme. But today,[...]

Richard Branson - Virgin Group

We won't lock people up who take marijuana in fact lets have some European countries regulate marijuana.

Stephen Shearin

Multiple cameras would allow us to use some advanced biometrics to make absolutely sure that the person who swiped that card is the owner of that card.

Richie Poulton

IQ is important for all sorts of things in life. It predicts how well you do educationally, then predicts how well you do in the job market. It also predicts how you end up health-wise.

Jessica Peck

We've seen just recently that the federal government, through the Obama administration, has given what the Denver Post referred to as a 'yellow light' – meaning, look, we're going to open the door to some sort of legitimized banking, but don't abuse[...]

Greg Honan

You can really stack inventory in a safe manner in a concentrated area.

Mike Jay

In South America you find pipes going back 4,000 years and in Europe, you know scarified poppy heads turn up in Neolithic tombs, in China cannabis seeds and plants in very ancient burials and it's probable, I think, that there isn't a beginning to t[...]

Wolfgang Götz

The real problem is not this herbal mix, the real problem is that we found synthetic cannabinoïds in certain batches. They have similar effects to cannabis. In this package, nobody knows how much is in it, there is no experience, we don't know anyth[...]

Jacqui Smith

I was asked, I answered, it was more than 25 years ago and I did it a few times….it was wrong…because it was against the law.

Fabrice Danel

The configuration of the premises is such that all of the drugs, which will be used for criminal trials, are stocked in an office all together and the station stinks. That makes, more or less, one year that it has built up, we arrive at astronomical[...]

Harry van Bommel

This law is part of the problem, not part of the solution.
