your weekly weed news infusion. freshly toasted.

Well, this is it. Welcome to ‘the lobsterpot<‘. This is going to be your new spot. It’ll save you scouring the net for all the pot news, articles, opinions, posts, and trivia that you crave.

Each week we’ll give you a hand-picked selection of the best stuff from around the web so that you can stay entertained, educated, and up to date on all things Mary Jane.

As it’s the first edition, we need to put something poignant in this intro. Let’s hand that duty over to someone infinitely more qualified.

Billion Dollar Baby

In the heart of Europe, the Institution for Competition Economics conducted a survey that concluded the legalization of weed could increase tax revenues by €3.4 billion. Hopefully, they’ll take a leaf out of Luxembourg’s book.

Smoking Package

Masters in weed delivery, Eaze, have now expanded to Detroit to create a power trio of Michigan cities with Grand Rapids and Ann Arbor already in play. With low minimum value orders and a customer discount model, they’ve got their sights set high.

BREAKING NEWS!

Germany Set To Pass Legalization Bill

Germany’s incoming government have made all the right noises where adult-use cannabis legalization’s concerned.

The coalition’s bid to kickstart a ‘highly-regulated’ environment via licensed shops gets a big green thumbs up from us!

But – let’s face it – €3.4 billion in tax revenues is not to be sniffed at…
