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)

Candidate for pilot testing, round one[edit]

Hello, WikiProject Cannabis!

On the recommendation of Another Believer, I am happy to announce that this WikiProject has been selected for the first round of WikiProject X pilot testing! Pilot testing candidates were selected on the basis for potential success of the WikiProject.

The goal of WikiProject X is to improve the WikiProject experience through research, design, and experimentation. On that basis, we've prepared a new WikiProject design template based around modules. These modules include features you are already familiar with, such as article alerts, but also new features such as automated work lists, a feed of discussions taking place on the 559 talk pages tagged by WikiProject Cannabis, and a new member profile system with opt-in notifications. The new design is available for your review at Wikipedia:WikiProject Cannabis/New. Please let me know what you think. (Note that some of the modules depend on output from other bots, meaning there will be some visual inconsistencies for now. I hope to resolve this in the long term.)

The next steps:

  1. If you are all satisfied with the design, I will implement it on the WikiProject page. Unless there are major points of contention, I hope to get this done by Friday, July 10.
  2. Using information from Wikipedia:WikiProject Directory/Description/WikiProject Cannabis, I will work on recruiting new members for the WikiProject. I will also reach out to your current listed members.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Cheers, Harej (talk) 15:05, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

I like it. This project doesn't seem too active, however. Sizeofint (talk) 16:23, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
Hence the WikiProject X initiative and why I suggested that WikiProject Cannabis be a pilot testing candidate. This project has great potential but is pretty inactive. ---Another Believer (Talk) 16:31, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
