Stony Awards[edit]

I stumbled across the Stony Awards page and noticed it hasn't been updated since 2010, but lists it as an active award. There's never been discussion on the talk page, so I thought I would post here, and see if there is someone who is more knowledgeable about the subject would be interested in updating the page, either with more recent winners or saying it hasn't been held. Also the page is a bit of a mess, with some years winners in a formatted table and others in a bulleted list below that. Thanks! Wikimandia (talk) 11:08, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

I made a bunch of US marijuana subcategories[edit]

Category:Cannabis in the United States was getting too crowded, so I made a bunch of subcategories including "companies", "media" and most importantly "by state" so that the topics that are specific to a given location are grouped together.

I hope this helps sort things out! Goonsquad LCpl Mulvaney (talk) 04:11, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

@Goonsquad LCpl Mulvaney: This is great. Thanks for your work and for the heads up! ----Another Believer (Talk) 04:13, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
No probs, Category:Cannabis in the United States by state is now up to 15 states; maybe folks can find at least one article for a bunch of other states so we can flesh it further. Goonsquad LCpl Mulvaney (talk) 04:32, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

We need an article for Alaska Measure 2[edit]

We have articles on the other key ballot measures that pushed states over into the Legal sphere, but we don't have one for Alaska's Measure 2. Does someone want to just look at Washington Initiative 502 and use just its intro as a model to make an Alaska version so we have articles for the clinching measures in 4 states and DC?

Okay, got it done, and tossed in an extra one:
So that should cover us for Alaska for the moment, unless anyone wants to do a quick article for Noy v. State, the court case that struck down the 1990 illegalization. Goonsquad LCpl Mulvaney (talk) 17:56, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

Repost: U.S. state inventory[edit]

Time to see which states have a cannabis article and which don't:

I think enough info exists about cannabis culture, history and legislation for each state that articles are warranted. ----Another Believer (Talk) 18:39, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

Reposting this, just made a new article Cannabis in Maine. Note also that while some states might not have a dedicated page, they may have a category at Category:Cannabis in the United States by state which collects articles around the topic. Also I added another column to the above list to cover non-states. Goonsquad LCpl Mulvaney (talk) 16:23, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
Just for kicks I went and knocked out Cannabis in American Samoa; apparently one of the harshest places in the US, with a 5 year mandatory minimum sentence for any amount of marijuana, even if prescribed elsewhere. Goonsquad LCpl Mulvaney (talk) 00:43, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
