420 with CNW – Senators Urge USDA to Loosen Restrictive Hemp Rules

Two Senators from Oregon have written to the USDA asking the agency to make some adjustments to the interim hemp final rule before they are finalized.

420 with CNW – Why Verified Product Reviews Are Crucial for the Cannabis Industry

The cannabis industry is one of the fastest-growing industries in the country, with as many as 243,700 Americans employed in the legal cannabis industry as of early 2020. It’s a relatively young industry with a large amount of sellers and the number is sure to increase as more states legalize cannabis. However, that’s not the only way the legal cannabis industry differs from most ‘traditional’ industries.

420 with CNW – Navy Stops Sailors and Marines from Using Hemp Shampoo

Last year, the U.S. Navy issued a notice banning all sailors and marines from using products containing CBD. This ban covered ingestible products, such as tinctures. Last week, the Navy issued another notice expanding the hemp or CBD product ban to include topicals like shampoos, lotions, conditioners, and soaps.

However, the Senate version of this spending bill doesn’t have the amendment contained…

420 with CNW – White House Official Admits Fewer Teens Are Using Marijuana Since Legalization

The road to cannabis legalization has been long and full of obstacles. While drug reform activists have preached the social and economic benefits of legalizing cannabis, proponents against legalization have argued that making cannabis legal and accessible to the public will lead to teens abusing the drug. However, according to an official from the White House’s anti-drug office, the consumption of cannabis by teens has fallen in Colorado and other states that have legalized marijuana for adult consumption. Speaking to a committee of North Dakota lawmakers on Wednesday, Dale Quigley stated that "for some reason, the use rate among this…

420 with CNW – Congress Could Vote on Marijuana Legalization in September

Last year, Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler teamed up with Senator Kamala Harris to file legislation that would end federal prohibition of cannabis in the country and seek to repair some of the damage done by the decades' long war on drugs. The Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement (“MORE”) Act would remove marijuana and THC from the Controlled Substances Act, provide for the expungement and resentencing of prior marijuana convictions and prevent federal agencies from using cannabis as a reason to deny access to benefits or citizenship status for immigrants. According to multiple sources familiar with the lawmaker's plans, the…

420 with CNW – Rhode Island Licenses First Lab to Test Marijuana Potency

Rhode Island legalized medical cannabis back in 2006, and it became one of the first states with a cannabis dispensary system when it introduced the system in 2009. As of 2020, there are 3 cannabis dispensaries in the state; Thomas C. Slater Compassion Center in Providence, Summit Medical Compassion Center in Warwick, and Greanleaf Compassion Center in Portsmouth.

420 with CNW – Opponents File Lawsuit against Arizona Marijuana Ballot Measure

At the start of the year, at least 10 states had plans to legalize either medical or recreational cannabis. But as the coronavirus took hold, lawmakers didn't have enough time to discuss comprehensive marijuana reforms. This, coupled with the shutdown and social distancing measures, meant states like New York and Ohio had to postpone their legalization plans. In Arizona, however, activists were able to collect enough signatures to get marijuana legalization on the November ballot, but they are now facing another potential hurdle. A group opposed to legal cannabis has filed a lawsuit arguing that the initiative used deceptive language…
