420 with CNW — Brazilian Superior Court Authorizes Home Cultivation of Marijuana for Medical Use

The wave of cannabis reform that began rocking the world when jurisdictions within the United States and countries such as Uruguay and Canada legalized marijuana in various forms has now arrived in Brazil. Earlier this week, a top Brazilian court gave a trio of patients authorization to grow their own cannabis at home for medical treatment.

Last week, the FDA’s Science Board embarked on an all-day review to discuss specific, complex scientific and technical issues important to the…
