Terrific on-going coverage of marijuana reform issues via International Business Times
I recently had the pleasure of speaking at length to a terrific reporter covering marijuana reform issues for International Business Times, and I told the reporter that I was quite impressed with the extent and sophistication of IBT's on-going coverage of these issues. Thereafter, it dawned on me that I have not consistently highlighted these realities on this blog space. But here is just an abridged review of some of the great IBT pieces from various reporters in just the last few weeks:
"Rand Paul Courts Marijuana Investors, But Why Aren’t More Presidential Candidates Embracing Pot?"
"PTSD And Cannabis -- Can Researchers Cut Through The Politics To Find Out Whether Weed Works?"
"Oregon Hopes Legal Weed Will End Race-Based Arrests, But Advocates Wary"
"Marijuana Legalization No Longer ‘Political Suicide’ For Presidential Candidates"
"Chile’s Lower House Of Congress Approves Marijuana Bill"
