420 with CNW – Why NJ Medical Cannabis is Slated to Get a Lot Cheaper

On July 1, New Jersey is slated to reduce the sales tax on medical marijuana from 6.625% to 4%.

On July 1 next year, the tax will reduce to 2% and the following year (July 1, 2022) will see the reduction to a 0% state sales tax. However, the sales tax reforms which roll out tomorrow don’t mean that buyers of medical marijuana will not pay any taxes on their purchases. Municipalities within New Jersey are…

A lot is being learned about the intersection between consuming marijuana and diabetes. Recently, a team of researchers has revealed that lots of people may be prone to developing diabetes after suffering from the severe forms of the COVID-19 disease. This complication can be alleviated using cannabis, the researchers think.

420 with CNW – Federal Commission Supports Expanding Psychedelics and Cannabis Research for Military Veterans

A federal commission that was asked to generate recommendations which will help to improve how military veterans suffering from mental health issues are treated has come to an unexpected conclusion urging the legislative and executive branches of the U.S. federal government to do everything possible to ease research into psychedelics and marijuana. After months of meetings, the commission, named Creating Options for Veterans’ Expedited Recovery (“COVER”), released its findings in a report authored in January. Surprisingly, this report hasn’t drawn as much attention as it deserves among the marijuana law reform movement and the media. The panel, led by Jake…

420 with CNW – Los Angeles Contemplates Overhauling Legal Cannabis System

Cannabis had been federally prohibited for several decades before public attitudes towards marijuana started changing in the late nighties. As drug reform advocates championed for marijuana legalization, more and more states legalized marijuana with the aim of earning tax revenue from cannabis sales, edging out the illicit market and repairing the damage done by the decades’ long war on drugs. However, a few years after a number of state-legal cannabis programs were launched, it has emerged that they aren't as effective as projected. Despite bringing in millions of dollars in tax revenue, states like Colorado and California have had a…

420 with CNW – The Legal Medical Marijuana Industry in Australia Only Serves 3% of Patients, Study Finds

More than 50 countries around the world have legalized some form of medical cannabis while six countries have allowed the recreational use of cannabis by adults. And while these territories have made inroads into the massive global cannabis market, most people in jurisdictions with legal weed still get their supply from the illicit market. One such jurisdiction is Australia. Australia legalized medical cannabis back in 2016 when the government created a system where doctors could prescribe the substance to treat various conditions. However, a recent study has found that only 3% of Australians using medical cannabis access it through the…

420 with CNW – Why Marijuana Employee Training is Crucial to Financial Success

Almost every job requires some kind of training. Employees need to know the basics of what they are required to do, whether it’s managing the inventory or manning the counter. For some businesses, minimal training is required and new employees can hit the ground running. But for others like cannabis sellers, who are subject to a high degree of government regulation, more comprehensive training is required. Let’s take the example of regulated liquor stores. Without proper training, an employee might get the business in trouble for failing to check IDs and unknowingly selling alcohol to minors or even messing up…

420 with CNW – US Report Reveals Religious Discrimination Targeting Marijuana Consumers Abroad

The U.S. State Department has released its annual Report on International Religious Freedom, and it is clear that religious discrimination against marijuana consumers is still a problem in some countries. And like it did in past years, the State Department has refrained from mentioning that due to federal prohibition, such discrimination is present in America as well. The report covers developments that took place in 2019, and it identifies about a dozen countries and territories where cannabis policies either discriminate against marijuana consumers or where they have been reformed to respect religious freedoms. “I’m here one more time, proudly, to…
