420 with CNW – Israel to Temporarily Slash Prices and Authorize Marijuana Exports

The Israeli government has kicked off a new program that will make medical cannabis products more affordable and cut down the country’s reliance on cannabis imports. The pilot program was announced by Health Minister Yuli Edelstein and Deputy Health Minister Yoav Kisch on Sunday. In an effort to alleviate the financial burden on Israel’s medical cannabis patients, the program will subsidize medical cannabis products to around half their current prices effectively immediately until the end of 2020. The program seems to be addressing some of the issues caused by Edelstein’s predecessor, Ya’acov Litzman’s 2018 reforms. Since they were enacted, they…

420 with CNW – Cannabis Giant Unveils Plans to Promote Responsible Marijuana Marketing

Despite being federally prohibited, the state-legal U.S. cannabis industry is already worth millions of dollars in sales and experts project immense growth over the next decade. However, before that happens, the industry still has a lot of kinks to work out, especially cannabis marketing. Cannabis’s status as a controlled substance coupled with the fact that it lacks a comprehensive regulatory structure has resulted in dishonest, unreliable marketing that sometimes even seems to target underage consumers. As the state-legal industry continues to grow, Cresco Labs, a vertically integrated, publicly-traded company that operates in nine states, is planning on pushing new advertising…

420 with CNW – Vermont Governor Allows Marijuana Bill to be Operational Without His Signature

Cannabis legalization activists in Vermont can finally breathe a sigh of relief after the governor announced that he will allow legal marijuana sales to take place in the state without his signature. Although the state legalized personal possession of up to one ounce and cultivation of two plants in 2018, retail sales have been prohibited.

On top of that, he also signed separate legislation to automate expungements for prior cannabis convictions. Before being reconciled in a bicameral conference committee last month, different versions…

420 with CNW – Arizona Eases Rules on Past Cannabis Use by Police Recruits

The state of Arizona has revised a cannabis policy that prevented individuals who had consumed marijuana in the past from becoming police officers. Described by officials as a modernization of existing policy as laws and societal views on the drug continue to evolve, the move relaxes limits of past marijuana use for people who would like to join law enforcement. Presently, current rules disqualify applicants who have used marijuana during the three years prior to their application. Additionally, applicants who have used cannabis more than 20 times in their lifetime or more than four times after the age of 21…
