420 with CNW – Should California Reverse its Promise to Give Local Authorities Control Over Marijuana Businesses?

When Proposition 64 was passed, one of its “key” promises was that local authorities would have the right to decide whether to license recreational cannabis businesses within their jurisdictions or not. About 70 percent of all cities and counties have opted to ban recreational cannabis sales within their jurisdictions, and this has hampered the growth of the cannabis industry. Now some lawmakers are proposing that this tenet of Prop 64 be changed to rein in the power of local authorities on the matter. Several arguments have been presented in favor of and against this suggestion. First, those in favor of…

420 with CNW – University of Washington to Study Effects of Cannabis Use During Pregnancy

There’s minimal scientific information about the potential effects of the different drugs which pregnant mothers are discouraged from taking, but cannabis is singled out and given a very negative connotation even if there’s no proof to show whether it is as dangerous, or more dangerous, than pharmaceutical drugs. To set the record straight, researchers from the University of Washington are now recruiting study subjects to research how cannabis use during pregnancy affects babies after they are born. The “Moms + Marijuana” study will document pregnant mothers’ use of marijuana from the first trimester of pregnancy until birth. The babies born…

420 with CNW – New Jersey Health Department Unveils Changes to Medical Marijuana Rules

As the deadline set by Gov. Murphy to have the bill to legalize recreational cannabis passed approaches, the Department of Health has released the proposed rule changes which will see the medical cannabis program expanded. The program was due to be expanded at the same time as the legalization of recreational weed, but that seems to be failing as lawmakers fail to convince 2-5 other senators to support full legalization. The rule changes are broadly aimed at improving access to medical marijuana. For example, there is a provision that will see the registration fee for patients and caregivers reduced to…

420 with CNW – State Statistics Reveal Less than 50 Percent of Ohio Patients Have Purchased Medical Marijuana

Medical marijuana was legalized in Ohio in 2016 and sales only started this year. Figures coming in from the state show that only 15,339 of the patients who hold medical marijuana cards have so far visited a dispensary and purchased medicinal marijuana products. Several factors can explain why just 49 percent of the cardholders have bought medical marijuana. First, very few medical marijuana dispensaries have opened their doors to patients. Out of 56 dispensary licenses which were issued, just a paltry 15 establishments have started operating. These few dispensaries aren’t evenly distributed across the state, and this may explain why…
