420 with CNW — Study Finds That Marijuana Legalization in Europe Doesn’t Increase Underage Usage

Marijuana is the most used illicit substance globally, with roughly 90 million individuals in Europe alone having used the drug once in their lifetime. Recently, scientists from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm conducted a study to determine whether changes in marijuana laws led to an increase in the recreational use of the herb by young adults and adolescents. They found no evidence to support the claim that the legalization of marijuana causes an increase in the use of marijuana in individuals aged 15 to 34. Critics of marijuana legalization often argue that allowing the legal and free access of the…

420 with CNW — How Cannabis Cultivators Are Reducing Plastics Use in Their Operations

For quite a while, cannabis cultivators relied on plastic in their operations. Despite being colloquially known as “weed,” high-quality cannabis requires specific conditions during certain growth periods for maximum growth. In the past, hemp and cannabis cultivators, especially those that employed outdoor grows, have used plastics to fight weeds, pot plants, and construct trellises. Many of them are now turning away from plastics in favor of ecofriendly alternatives. Plastics now permeate nearly every facet of the environment. A new report from the United Nations Food Agriculture Organization shows that microplastics aren’t just choking our oceans and seas, they are in…

420 with CNW — One Year On, Advocates Say Biden Hasn’t Acted on Marijuana Promises

President Joseph Biden won office on a mostly progressive platform; he wanted to completely electrify the country’s transport sector and pass modest cannabis reform. Although most drug reform activists would much rather prefer more comprehensive reform, Biden was able to beat former President Donald Trump and take office. Since then, Biden has invested a significant amount of time working on an infrastructure bill that would, among other things, build a public network of charging stations. However, a year after the Democrats clinched the Senate, House and White House, cannabis reform advocates say Biden still hasn’t acted on any of his…
