Happy Friday all,

Today’s missive takes a look at some big picture issues: crime, Amazon and Congress. It sounds like a nightmarish version of those free association games. I assure you it’s much more interesting:

  • Why Amazon cares if weed is legal
  • New kinds of pot crime
  • Is fifth time the charm on banking reform?

Here we go,

In the news


  • In the latest episode of Hi-Curious founder Lauren Mendell’s quest for funding, she describes losing it at a prominent edibles CEO, who she felt had blown her off. She says she has the encounter on video but can’t make herself watch it. Mendell doesn’t name the company, but she does drop some hints.  
  • Scenester and former WeedWeek contributor Ngaio Bealum found his favorite edibles slogan. Hint: It’s for Elbe’s cakeballs.
