We all have stayed at a hotel or Bed and Breakfast, and you may have heard about the service called Airbnb, where homeowners rent a room, or even their whole house, for short term rentals. Now there is a new kid on the block called Bud and Breakfast or the Airbnb of Weed. In areas where marijuana is legal, the Bud and Breakfast concept is a similar arrangement, but it is special because the accommodation allows the consumption of cannabis. Operating such an entity comes with its own set of tax and accounting complications.
Let’s start with the obvious: Is the Bud and Breakfast subject to 280E compliance? Well, that depends—if you provide the marijuana or have it available for guests to purchase from you, then you are subject to 280E rules. If you provide directions or even take your guests to a local dispensary where they make their own purchase, then you are not subject to 280E.

This Veteran’s Day, if you want to put your money where your mouth is, Citizen CBD might be the place to shop for your cannabidiol (CBD).
Citizen CBD is a veteran-owned and operated company that specializes in hemp-derived CBD products. Hemp and marijuana are both the same species of plant. The cannabis plant is identified as marijuana when it has over .3% THC, but the same species with below .3% THC (regardless of CBD content) is considered hemp.

Miller’s Marijuana is a retail shop in Washington state. Located in Porter, they aren’t exactly the most accessible; they’re not out in the boonies, but they’re not right down the block from your apartment in the city either.
Donald Trump and Scott Pruitt don’t appear to like government oversight, unless you ask them about cannabis. Pruitt, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the Trump administration, sent letters to four states in June to inform them that the EPA intended to disapprove their registrations for four cannabis pesticides. In stark contrast, Pruitt and the EPA have attempted to repeal the Clean Power Plan, the Clean Water rule and methane-leak protections. It seems that Pruitt finds more to fear from the cannabis plant than from pollution.
What Exactly Is a Brand? A brand is a complex combination of several components that come together to build the true picture of your business. A brand is also about how the public reacts and interacts with your company and products and services.
The day before my dad died from a perforated intestine, he had a bout of pain that we were unable to control with the medicines that had been prescribed through hospice—morphine, lorazepam and haloperidol. I could not bear to see him suffer, so as my sister called the hospice nurse to ask what we should do (how much morphine we could give), I had an idea. It was time to try some cannabis.

In most of the United States, cannabis-themed entertainment involves the hope that one’s 20-something dealer will ring the doorbell with a crinkled, overpriced bag of mystery weed before the pizza arrives and the beer goes flat. Things are slowly improving, however. In a few areas of the country, adult use legalization is opening new opportunities for entrepreneurs to provide unique entertainment options to choosy purveyors of pot.
When people imagine marijuana they see Cheech and Chong standing among a field of big, green plants. Perhaps those more familiar with marijuana may visualize the enormous greenhouse facilities popping up across Washington, California and other cannabis-friendly states. However, the face of the industry may soon be a group of scientists in lab coats, studying some of the smallest molecules in living organisms.
