CDC: Young People Say Marijuana Is Becoming Less Available | Paul Armentano

Prohibitionists often claim that legalizing and regulating marijuana will increase youth access to the plant. But newly released federal data says just the opposite.

November/December Issue of Eucalyptus Magazine Now Available

posted in: Hemp Farming 0

Los Gatos, CA (PRWEB) October 28, 2011

Eucalyptus magazine, the only lifestyle magazine that focuses exclusively on health, wellness and green living in the San Francisco Bay Area, has just released its November/December 2011 issue. Feature stories include pieces on eco-apparel, eco-cleaning for the holidays, and the annual Eucalyptus Gift Guide. The Grown Local department profiles the Straus Family Creamery. The Green Tips section gives suggestions on going green for the holidays. The new issue of Eucalyptus is now online at and available from over 350 Bay Area merchants.

“From all of us at Eucalyptus magazine, we wish you a happy and healthy holiday season,” said Michaela Marek, publisher and founder of Eucalyptus.

Clothing is a popular holiday gift, but the manufacturing process can have significant social and environmental costs. For people looking to support responsibly made eco-apparel, the issue features an article on businesses devoted combining style with sustainability. Amour Vert makes garments from “peace silk,” which, unlike traditional silk manufacturing, does not kill silkworms. Athletes will want to check out Greenlight Apparel, which makes fair-trade-certified athletic clothes from recycled polyester and organic cotton, and Good Gear, which uses renewable, chemical-free bamboo to make its running shorts and tees. Other featured eco chic companies use beneficial fibers like hemp and organic cotton, and even create new garments out of Goodwill finds.

People expecting company for the holidays will want to make sure their homes are spic and span. But on top of all the other stress and headaches of the season, who has time to do a deep clean? Eucalyptus offers a handy guide to Bay Area eco-cleaning companies that can clean up a house without dirtying the environment. While traditional carpet cleaning involves heavy chemicals and a lot of water, several local companies offer greener alternatives, such as natural enzymes, lower amounts of water, or hypoallergenic cleansers with no VOCs. Featured house cleaning companies are responding to consumers’ concerns about safety and environmental issues by using nothing but nontoxic, green-certified cleaning products; mapping out cleaning routes to minimize driving; and using carbon offsets for miles driven.

The holiday issue wouldn’t be complete without the Eucalyptus Gift Guide, a collection of gifts everyone can feel good about giving. Kids will love a huggable plush sea otter holding a sea star, and the proceeds benefit the Monterey Bay Aquarium. For stunning and unique jewelry gifts, Third Eye Pinecones creates pendants from cross-sections of conifer pinecones, inlaid with gems, crystals, shells, and fossils. Smartphone cases by Pong Research not only protect phones when they’re dropped, they also redirect cell phone radiation away from the head without interfering with signal levels.

“I love the annual gift guide; last year I took the recommendations and purchased several gifts for my friends. I am looking forward to it again,” said reader Monika Cervena.

Elsewhere in the new issue, a profile of the Strauss Family Creamery in coastal Marin County, the first certified organic dairy in western US, proves that California does have some happy cows. These bovines are fed grass or organic vegetarian feed and raised without hormones or antibiotics. Some of their waste funneled into a methane digester that powers the farm, some is composted. The milk and cream is all organic and non-GMO certified.

The issue also offers Green Tips on the holiday season, including giving time instead of presents, wrapping gifts with materials already found in the house, and using seasonal spices and oils to scent the house. Green Tips also air on two radio stations: MIX 106.5 and 94.5 KBAY.

In honor of the November/December 2011 issue, Eucalyptus is offering a subscription sale: 50% off a one-year subscription. Subscribers can get 6 issues for only $ 12. More info at

Medical and Recreational Marijuana Growing in the US Industry Market Research Report Now Available from IBISWorld

posted in: Cannabis 0

New York, NY (PRWEB) April 09, 2015

The Medical and Recreational Marijuana Growing industry has flourished over the five years to 2015. For decades, all marijuana transactions in the United States were conducted under implicit or explicit prohibition. However, states have increasingly moved to legalize nonprofit marijuana for medical purposes, as well as to implement regulations for organizations that sell cannabis. “The growing acceptance of medical marijuana is providing growers and investors with unprecedented opportunities,” says IBISWorld Industry Analyst Dmitry Diment. “There has been no shortage of demand in recent years, as the industry has benefited from increased acceptance of the legitimacy of medical marijuana products.”

Recently, the legalization of recreational marijuana in Colorado and Washington has spurred additional demand for the industry. In 2014, the licensing of commercial recreational marijuana growers in these states contributed to industry revenue growth of 54.7%. In addition to the favorable regulatory environment in these states, medical marijuana growers have continued to benefit from the steadily aging population. Chronic illnesses have become more prevalent as the population continues to age, driving demand for medical marijuana. Overall, the industry is expected to experience annualized revenue growth of 30.2% to $ 1.9 billion in the five years to 2015, including growth of 25.1% during the current year.

According to Diment, however, “The industry will remain at risk until the federal government definitively changes its position on the legality of marijuana. Until then, a growing number of medical marijuana patients, as well as a burgeoning recreational cannabis legalization movement, will spur demand for the industry.” Rising demand is also forecast to widen profit margins, as is the success of the for-profit recreational marijuana business in Colorado and Washington. In particular, the next five years are expected to see the growth of large commercial cultivators, who will benefit from strong recreational demand across a number of states, including Alaska, Oregon and the District of Columbia.
