420 with CNW — House Panel Asks Military to Reconsider Cannabis Penalties for Soldiers

Federal law prohibits American servicemembers from consuming cannabis. A 2018 notice declares that although dozens of states have legalized cannabis for medical or recreational purposes, federal law restricts military members from using cannabis, CBD (cannabidiol), any cannabinoid derivatives and THC-infused products.

This is despite the fact that studies have shown cannabis can be efficient in alleviating conditions such as, depression, chronic pain, insomnia and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which are common among military veterans.

420 with CNW — Congressional Leaders Seek to Give Indian Tribes Cannabis Protections

Several congressional leaders are looking to include language that would protect Native American tribes from being penalized by the federal government for legalizing cannabis within their territories in a variety of funding bills. In 2014, the federal government stated that tribes were allowed to grow and sell cannabis as long as they followed the same federal guidelines set for states that had legalized cannabis. The lawmakers now want it codified into law that the federal government cannot persecute Indian tribes that legalize cannabis within their territories. More specifically, the new cannabis provision would forbid federal funds appropriated to agencies within…

420 with CNW — Congressmen Plead for Support for Medical Cannabis Bill for Veterans

A duo of bipartisan congressmen is seeking support for an upcoming bill that would increase military veterans' access to medical cannabis. Although studies have found that medical cannabis can be effective at helping veterans deal with chronic pain, insomnia, anxiety, depression and even post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), federal policy makes it extremely difficult for veterans to access legal cannabis. Democratic Rep. Earl Blumenauer and Republican Rep. Brian Mast are hoping to change this through their Veterans Equal Access Act. The bill would grant healthcare practitioners at the U.S. Department of Veterans’ Affairs (VA) permission to recommend medical cannabis to patients…

420 with CNW — Do Cryptos, Blockchain Have Potential for Use in the Marijuana Industry?

You wouldn’t think marijuana has any connection to cryptocurrency and the complex blockchain technology that authenticates and records transactions. The former is a psychoactive plant that has been associated with racial injustices for decades and is now touted for its medical potential while the latter is an online decentralized currency that has taken the world by storm in recent years.
