The countdown to cannabis legalization has begun.
Soon many of us will be able to grow plants at home. We'll be able to leave our house carrying up to one ounce, and have eight ounces at home. It's still hard to wrap my head around these freedoms.
I've spent three weekends in
Recently The Portland Mercury, which is where the "Cannabuzz" columns began and ran for nearly six years, asked if I would like to contribute to their annual "Holiday Food and Drink Guide".
They wanted my hot take on single malt scotches for the guide, until I reminded them I write about
Today is National CBD Day, and if you know what's good for you, you got me a card to celebrate this highest of high holy days, and maybe a nice CBD related gift as well. (Hint: Chocolate.)
Insofar as I got mail delivered today, and my bank is open, National CBD
When COVID-19 began to spread and businesses started shutting down, the question arose if dispensaries were going to be considered an "essential service".
For the well being of myself and those within strangling distance of me, yes, it's a super essential service, and it behoves us all to keep that
I last wrote about the virus on March 9, 2020. Six days later, the newspapers carrying my column lost 90% of their revenue, and I lost 100% of my syndicated column.
At that time, Governor Kate Brown declared a statewide State of Emergency the night before, and the scope of
The Drive By Truckers have achieved a storied, decades long career filled with both critical and commercial success, and aside from some personnel changes in the early years, the constant throughout has been the magic of The Dimmer Twins - co-frontmen Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm excited to be transitioning from newspapers to this platform. (You can read more about the history of Cannabuzz in the "About" section of the site.)
I'll continue to offer wide ranging coverage of Cannabis and CBD, although there won't be much about events, or new
There are thousands of growers, edible makers, and concentrate processors in Oregon. And although I partake of a great deal of cannabis in many forms, despite my best efforts, I haven’t tried everything, and new products drop all the time.
So while this is not a comprehensive list of the majesty
Do you like food? I know that’s a loaded question, and I don’t mean to intrude... but do you? Cool, me too. Common ground found! Now, do you also enjoy cannabis? Get out, so do I! Final question: Have you ever tried food after consuming cannabis, and/or food prepared with
A new report by the Oregon Liquor Control Commision (OLCC) gives us a clearer answer to the question "how many cannabis growers are there and how much cannabis did the state produce in 2019?"
(Albeit with data limited to licensed recreational growers, and not your “four plants” or however many your
In news from the “Department of Dubious Achievements,” local cannabis powerhouse Cura Partners, which promotes itself as the “largest cannabis oil company in Oregon and California” now lays claim to another “largest”—the largest ever fine in OLCC history, be it cannabis or alcohol.

For many people, the holidays don’t officially kick off until Thanksgiving (AKA “Native Peoples Regret Not Building a Wall Day”), and for others it’s the following day, Black Friday.
Many of us will be taking advantage of deep discounts at local dispensaries for Black Friday—especially with some stores knocking 50 percent
As they do every year, the holidays are rapidly bearing down on us like a runaway train—which makes it pretty difficult to pinpoint ways to share, care, and demonstrate goodwill toward others.
Now I’m not advocating going door-to-door singing carols, because it’s cold, and if those guys showed up at my
Stealing isn't cool. It never has been, and never will be. Be it a candy bar or an election, you shouldn't take things that don't rightfully belong to you. Of course, dear reader, this is something you already know, nor do you need the admonishment that you should not purchase
Don't start crying or having a panic attack, but the holidays are upon us.
Next week is already "Dress Up Sexy, or Slutty, for a Profession That Is Traditionally Neither Day," and then, it's time to gird yourself for the Big Three.
The holiday season drives a sizable uptick in cannabis use,
