Donna Niro, chairwoman of Milford Community Against Recreational Marijuana Retail Establishments (CARES), said the results indicate voters are concerned with what local marijuana shops could mean for underage drug users and Milford’s reputation. “This is very positive and I think...

    Jane Fonda’s not afraid of real talk on marijuana. The 77-year-old actress-activist says she still gets high, according to “The One and Only Jane Fonda,” a new interview in DuJour magazine. “I’ll smoke pot every now and then,” Fonda told DuJour.

    America is waking up the premise of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream infused with the body-buzzing active ingredients of marijuana.

This week, the media got a bad case of the munchies. An infused ice cream “makes sense to me,” said co-founder Ben Cohen. “Combine your pleasures. … Where it’s legal!” “It’s not my decision,” said co-founder Jerry Greenfield. “If it was my decision we would be doing it.
