Marijuana enthusiasts can now drink their bud with breakfast, thanks to a San Jose company.

Jill Amen runs House Of Jane, a premium marijuana-coffee and tea company out of San Jose. She started testing out her ideas in the kitchen after a trip to Amsterdam.

Science Seeks to Unlock Marijuana’s Secrets

As the once-vilified drug becomes more accepted, researchers around the world are trying to understand how it works and how it might fight disease.

There’s nothing new about cannabis, of course. It’s been around humankind pretty much forever.

In Siberia charred seeds have been found inside burial mounds dating back to 3000 B.C. The Chinese were using cannabis as a medicine thousands of years ago. Marijuana is deeply American too—as American as George Washington, who grew hemp at Mount Vernon. For most of the country’s history, cannabis was legal, commonly found in tinctures and extracts.

Dutch police destroyed 6,006 marijuana plantations in 2014

Dutch police discovered and dismantled 6,006 marijuana plantations in 2014, slightly up on 2013’s total, website Nu.nl reports on Monday. In total, police seized over 1.6 million plants and nearly 230,000 seedlings plus 2,000 kilos of prepared marijuana – highlighting the scale of domestic production. The biggest rise in seizures was in the Zeeland-West Brabant police district, where the number of plantations was up 27%. There was also an 18% rise in Rotterdam. This year the government is making a major effort to stamp out production and has made it a criminal offence for companies to supply people with lamps, fertilizer and other equipment if they suspect it is being used to grow marijuana. All but around 300 of the plantations were indoors.

Since almost everyone interviewed for this story is, or has been, a criminal, almost everyone long ago adopted pseudonyms. Some are no longer criminals, so don’t mind their real names being used. Some are no longer criminals, but still prefer to use their pseudonyms.

EU Cannabis: when prohibition does not equal lower consumption

In Europe, the legislation varied from one country to another. And the most stringent laws do not necessarily produce the best effects.

According to the French Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (OFDT), nearly one in two French smoked cannabis. However, France has one of the toughest laws on drug use, even so-called "soft" drugs. In Europe, laws differ. On one hand the countries that decriminalize, are tolerant, do not condemn. And conversely those which are very severe. Scientific studies are struggling to establish links between the laws in force and the actual consumption of drugs. If consumption is sometimes tolerated in different forms, the sale and cultivation of cannabis are of course mostly misdemeanors.
