420 with CNW — Study Finds Banking Activity Grows Once a State Legalizes Cannabis

Cannabis businesses often find it difficult to get banks willing to take them on as clients because of the risks posed by the federal prohibition of marijuana. Now new research has found that once a state legalizes cannabis, banking activity increases. While the study doesn’t directly link increased banking activity and state-level cannabis reform, it does imply the existence of the relationship. The study was conducted by researchers from Drexel University, the University of Arizona, Scripps College and San Diego State University. For their study, the researchers looked into banking trends in states that have legalized marijuana, examining the Federal…

Cannabis reform is sweeping across the globe and undoing decades of prohibition.

Three years after Thailand made history, the country is planning to legalize marijuana and do away with jail terms for people charged with marijuana possession.

420 with CNW — A Look at the Link Between Marijuana and Inflammation

Inflammation personifies the saying “too much of a good thing is bad.” Despite being one of the body’s first responders in case of infection or physical injury, inflammation also presents a significant risk to health. Acute inflammation is the body’s initial response to either infection or injury, and it is a crucial component of the body’s defense system. Chronic inflammation, on the other hand, happens when the body keeps sending inflammatory cells when there’s no present danger. A wide variety of medical inflammations including Alzheimer’s disease, asthma, heart disease and cancer can be traced to chronic inflammation. This kind of…

420 with CNW — Spanish Study Finds That Young Cannabis Users Enjoy Better Sexual Function, Orgasms

According to a Spanish study published in December 2021, young people who smoke cannabis and consume alcohol tend to enjoy an overall superior sexual function and orgasms when compared to their peers who don’t smoke cannabis or don’t drink alcohol. The research team was motivated to undertake this study because much of the existing scientific data on this subject tended to be contradictory, with some studies indicating that marijuana consumption improved sex life while others concluded that smoking marijuana had a detrimental effect on an individual’s sex life. The team based at Almeria University decided to design its own observational…

420 with CNW — SAFE Banking Act Sponsor Vows to See Bill Passed Before He Retires

Operating in the legal cannabis space is no mean feat. Due to the plant’s federal status as a controlled substance, marijuana businesses have to deal with a lot of issues that players in other industries don’t even have to think of. For starters, most banks refuse to work with marijuana businesses in fear of federal reprisals, forcing the businesses to operate on a largely cash-only basis. This makes accounting and filing taxes extremely cumbersome and makes the business prime targets for criminals. For quite a while, industry stakeholders have argued for some kind of policy or regulation that would allow…

420 with CNW — State, Federal Officials Work Together on Draft Cannabis Standardization Proposals

America’s state-legal cannabis industry may be incredibly lucrative, but it is far from perfect. Barely more than a decade old, the sector is known for its patchwork laws and lack of standardization. For quite a while, industry stakeholders and reform activists have argued for the creation of standard rules and procedures. This would make interstate trade possible and allow the industry to really grow. Last week, local, state and federal officials met to discuss proposals that could end up in a federal handbook for cannabis regulation. Cannabis was on the agenda for two National Conference on Weights and Measures (“NCWM”)…
