420 with CNW — Report Says Nearly 300 Jobs Are Created Daily in Cannabis Industry

The marijuana industry has grown significantly these last few years. A good way to determine just how rapidly it has grown is to look at how many employment opportunities the industry has created thus far. A new report by Leafly reported that roughly 280 new marijuana jobs are created every day. Cumulatively, this added up to an estimated 428,000 jobs by January 2022, making this particular industry one of the fastest-growing employers in the United States. This growth is particularly impressive if someone considers that it has been less than a decade since the states of Washington and Colorado began…

420 with CNW — Consumption Lounges Could Change Trajectory of Marijuana Industry

Nearly 20 states have now legalized recreational cannabis use. In these states, consumers aged 21 and older are allowed to purchase and consume cannabis for recreational purposes. However, most of these states have outlawed the public consumption of adult-use marijuana, meaning people have to consume their cannabis in private residences. Consequently, tourists face a unique challenge when it comes to recreational weed. While they are allowed to purchase cannabis in states with legal markets, they are rarely provided with a location to consume this cannabis, essentially making it impossible for them to consume cannabis unless they know a locale. Cannabis…

420 with CNW — NIDA Boss Says Decriminalization Can Help Address Drug Addiction Problem

For the past couple of decades, America’s solution to the drug crisis has been criminalization. Most pundits agree that this approach has failed spectacularly, ruining millions of lives and indirectly channeling billions of dollars to the criminal enterprises behind the drug trade. Millions of Americans who would have benefited from medical treatment were branded as criminals and forced to spend years of their lives in prison. The result is a country that largely views drug addiction as a criminal rather than public health issue. According to a top federal health official, the United States will have to overhaul its approach…

420 with CNW — Study Finds That Safe Drug-Consumption Sites in NYC Reduce Overdose Risks

Safe drug-consumption sites, or locations where individuals with substance misuse disorders can consume illicit drugs under medical supervision, have been a controversial idea since they were first introduced. These sites have been designed to prevent drug overdoses by ensuring that people who use illicit drugs are in a safe environment when they use drugs and can receive the treatment they need. Unsurprisingly, the idea has faced plenty of political and legal challenges since federal law bans the use of most illicit drugs. Despite these challenges, research shows that safe consumption sites are effective at reducing the risk of overdosing. More…

420 with CNW — Revised Lawsuit Wants DOJ to Explain Gun Ban for Medical Marijuana Users

Dozens of states may now allow medical and recreational cannabis, but continued federal prohibition has been a major thorn in the state-legal cannabis industry’s side. Marijuana’s federal classification as a Schedule I drug has made it nigh impossible for cannabis businesses to access financial services and significantly hindered investment in the industry. Furthermore, federal prohibition has led to plenty of cannabis consumers being penalized for engaging in acts, such as purchasing and consuming cannabis, that are legal in their state. A recent lawsuit seeks to understand the rationale behind one such penalty: preventing medical marijuana users from purchasing guns. After…

420 with CNW — The Marijuana Drinks Segment Looks Poised for Long-Term Growth

We have seen several major players enter the marijuana drink market in the recent past as more products are launched, despite the segment being in its infancy. While the focus in the past had been THC-infused drinks, we have seen interest in the wellness benefits linked to CBD growing as well. Cannabis drinks are popular with consumers for various reasons, including fewer health concerns, discreetness, ease of consumption and less stigma when compared to other marijuana consumption methods such as smoking. These drinks also have faster onset of effects as the cannabinoids are quickly absorbed into an individual’s bloodstream under…

420 with CNW — California Cannabis Businesses Unhappy with Recent Tax Reforms

Although California is home to the largest cannabis market in the country, it is vastly overshadowed by the illicit market. Compared to the $8.7 billion that illicit cannabis sellers earned in 2019, the legal market only brought in $3.1 billion. In a bid to increase legal sales and reduce the dominance of black market sellers, regulators in the state recently passed tax reforms that would reduce the tax burden on licensed cannabis businesses and make their products more affordable. However, cannabis businesses in California still aren’t satisfied with the tax cuts, claiming that they are too modest to have any…
