Rod Kight & the Kight On Cannabis Blog

I am Rod Kight. I live in Asheville, North Carolina where I practice law, raise five kids, play music, advocate for cannabis legalization, and enjoy life. I hope you find this blog to be informative, entertaining, and a helpful vehicle for cannabis advocacy. Cannabis should be legal in all of its forms and I intend for this blog to be a part of the larger legalization movement.

The Kight on Cannabis Blog Disclaimer
Please be mindful that possessing, using, distributing and selling marijuana are all federal crimes and that this blog is not intended to give you any legal advice, much less lead you to believe that marijuana is legal under federal law. Please also note that even though marijuana is illegal under federal law, you will need to pay federal taxes just as though you are a legal entity. This is true even if you are a state law not-for-profit entity.

These are among the two most important criteria for determining creditworthiness and who qualifies to purchase a home.
