420 with CNW — Las Vegas Awaits Launch of Marijuana Consumption Lounges

Although they are a relatively new concept, marijuana consumption lounges are probably the most controversial aspect of the entire cannabis reform movement. The idea is to provide public rooms where customers can consume cannabis without running afoul of state cannabis laws. While more than a dozen states have now legalized recreational cannabis consumption, they have also outlawed public consumption and made it almost impossible for nonresidents to legally consume the cannabis they have purchased. New York was among the first states to allow cannabis consumption sites for adults aged 21 and over. The state recently passed a bill that would…

420 with CNW — Largest Employee Union Wants End to Testing Federal Employees for THC

For decades, federal employers have had the right to test their employees for cannabis used because of federal regulations that outlawed the cultivation, distribution and sale of marijuana. But as states have begun to legalize recreational and medical cannabis use, reform activists argued that these drug tests penalize consumers for indulging in behaviors that are considered legal in their home states. The largest federal employee union in the country is now calling on the government to put an end to policies that punish federal workers for using cannabis during their free time. The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) also…

420 with CNW — New Research Finds Legalization Hasn’t Increased Number of Teens Trying Cannabis

Concerns around how the legalization of marijuana for adult use may prompt an increase in the number of young users have been floated by both parents and health researchers since talks on legalization began a decade ago. Critics against the policy change have even gone as far as to issue warnings with no evidence to back the claims. However, new research has found that the legalization of marijuana does not cause more young individuals to try using the substance. The study, which was conducted by researchers at Michigan State University, found that legalized marijuana retail sales did not increase the…

420 with CNW — Studies Question Usefulness of THC Testing to Establish Impairment

For decades, law enforcement has used standardized equipment called breathalyzers to determine the blood-alcohol content of drivers and police-impaired driving. These tests take mere seconds to administer and can give police a decent estimation of how impaired a driver is. As cannabis reform has swept across the country and more states have legalized recreational cannabis, law enforcement and cannabis legalization opponents have argued that legalizing cannabis will inevitably lead to higher levels of impaired driving and road incidents. We still don’t have a standard test to quickly measure delta-9 THC blood levels. Furthermore, there is relatively little evidence that the…

420 with CNW — Federal Health Agencies Consider Funding Research into Minor Cannabinoids

If you ask the average American if they know what cannabinoids are, they’ll probably mention delta-9 THC, the main psychoactive component in cannabis, or cannabidiol (CBD).

Cannabis also produces a variety of terpenes and flavonoids that significantly impact…
