Daily News @ http://RevolutionNews.US ~ Michael Lapihuska is facing a sentence that could be as severe as 10 years in prison, not for rape, burglary or assault, but for the possession of a single joint’s worth of marijuana.
Michael suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and has used cannabis for many years to combat the symptoms of his illness. After suffering arrests for possession, he moved to California.

General Cannabis Inc., the company that owns Weedmaps.com, purchased Marijuana.com for $4.20 million dollars! Rumor has it the agreement was signed by both parties at 4:20pm! For those who are not in the loop, Weedmaps.com is an extremely popular website amongst pot smokers to locate dispensaries and marijuana deals around their vicinity. The acquisition is very strategic, and I think this will re-affirm their position as the authority in the medical marijuana industry.
"Bob Newland, the director of the South Dakota chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, founder of South Dakotans for Safe Access, a medical marijuana group, and publisher of Hemphasis, was sentenced to one year in the Pennington County Jail, with all but 45 days suspended. During that year, he is forbidden to publicly advocate marijuana legalization."
