Colorado is working toward becoming the first state to regulate production of medical marijuana. Regulators say pot consumers deserve to know what they’re smoking, and producers should have safety regulations such as pesticide limits for plants destined for human consumption.

Chris Conrad’s new book Cannabis Yields and Dosage: A Guide to the Production and Use of Medical Marijuana is an all-encompassing guide for patients, physicians, lawmakers, and law enforcement. Part I of his book is filled with scientific facts about the yield, uses, and dosage of medical cannabis. In the second part of his book, he explains the legal settings for the first part of his book and Part III offers a model Safe Access Now ordinance for guidelines for the implementation of California’s Prop 215 [HS 11362.5] and SB 420 [HS 11362.7]. And in the last part of his book he offers other States’ laws as well as provides references and websites for his reader’s use (unfortunately our site came out after his book went to press).
Chris Conrad is a Court-qualified cannabis expert, director of Safe Access Now, author of Hemp: Lifeline to the Future and Hemp for Health, as well as the curator of the Hash-Marijuana-Hemp Museum in Amsterdam.Read More
