Whether you’re an advocate for marijuana legalization, a doctor with the ability to prescribe medical marijuana to patients, a grower, or just a consumer of the bud, you could likely benefit from having more industry information at your fingertips. And with a smartphone, you certainly can!

Leafly.com is an online resource and free app that allows users to rate and review different strains of cannabis and cannabis dispensaries. It helps medical marijuana patients determine which strain corresponds with specific symptoms, and then directs the patients to dispensaries where they can purchase.

The first ever marijuana commercial will hit television networks everywhere over the next couple months! Okay, by everywhere, we really mean just a few states. And by “first ever,” we mean “first ever that isn’t a political ad.” But hey, it’s a start.

After last night’s ceremonies, we’ve got the Academy Awards on the brain.

We’re sure there are plenty of Oscar-nominated celebs who enjoy toking every now and then. Who might they be?
