420 with CNW — NJ Lawmakers Approve Cannabis Legalization Bill Addressing Governor’s Concerns

On the November ballot, voters in New Jersey approved a referendum to legalize marijuana, joining the growing number of states that allow cannabis. Shortly after the vote, the legislature introduced and passed enabling legislation that would create a regulated cannabis market. However, after lawmakers passed the legislation, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy revealed that he wasn’t a fan of the lack of penalties for underage possession. To put his fears at ease, lawmakers tried to pass a bill addressing the issue of youth possession, but after key legislators pulled their support, a floor vote was canceled. This past week, however,…

420 with CNW — CBD May Be the Remedy for Gonorrhea and Other Bacterial Diseases

A report from a team of researchers from the University of Australia, published in “Nature,”  has demonstrated how synthetic cannabidiol (“CBD”) can eliminate various bacteria responsible for ailments such as Legionnaires’ disease, meningitis and gonorrhea. The report suggests that CBD could bring about a class of new antibiotics for resistant bacteria in a few decades to come. The researchers tested CBD’s antimicrobial activity using lab models to imitate a two-week patient treatment. This would enable the researchers to observe how rapidly the bacteria mutated to try to outmaneuver cannabidiol’s power to eliminate them. The study’s abstract reported that the researchers…

420 with CNW — Why New Jersey Legislators Are Unwilling to Allow Patients to Grow Medical Cannabis

New Jersey legislators are currently in the process of finalizing the details of the state’s marijuana decriminalization and legalization policies. While the S3550 bill has lessened the penalties for individuals found carrying less than six ounces of marijuana, it still forbids any person from having the intent to distribute or the distribution and possession of a controlled and dangerous substance. The bill does not touch on marijuana home-cultivation, which remains criminalized. This is despite poll data from a Rutgers University 2018 poll, showing that 60% of voters in the state disagreed with a prohibition that forbade residents from cultivating their…

420 with CNW — Colorado Premium Cannabis Flower Causes Prices to Soar to Record Highs

For Colorado’s cannabis industry, 2020 was a boom year. While other sectors saw their operations severely cut down amid lockdown and self-distancing orders, Colorado categorized cannabis as essential, allowing marijuana businesses to continue selling with coronavirus-related measures in place. Even before transactions for November had been tallied, the state had hit $2 billion in medical and recreational cannabis sales. These record-breaking sales can partly be attributed to record high, wholesale, cannabis-bud (flower) prices that in 2020 increased to levels unseen since 2016. According to the Colorado Department of Revenue, the average market price by wholesalers for a pound of marijuana…
