420 with CNW — Influential Nonprofit Says Federal Cannabis Bill Insufficient to Fix Harms of Drug War

The war on drugs was ostensibly started to mitigate drug addiction rates in the country and deal a blow to the criminal enterprises behind the illicit drug trade. However, most experts agree that the decades-long drug war was a failure, leading to the arrest and incarceration of tens of thousands of people on minor drug charges. Furthermore, the drug war exacerbated racial and economic inequality in the country and caused nigh-irreparable damage to marginalized communities. As cannabis reform has swept across America, most activists and lawmakers have championed cannabis legalization measures that contain social equity provisions designed to repair the…

420 with CNW — Another Push Is Underway in Florida to Legalize Recreational Cannabis

Floridians could be able to purchase and use recreational cannabis legally in the next few years if a proposed constitutional amendment that was filed last week is successful. Backed by country-music duo the Bellamy Brothers and Trulieve, currently the largest medical-cannabis operator in Florida, the measure would legalize the use of recreational marijuana by people aged 21 and older. The Tallahassee-based medical marijuana operator contributed $5 million to help get the constitutional amendment to the 2024 ballot. The measure is also expected to receive support from other multistate medical cannabis companies. The proposed amendment was filed on Monday at the…

420 with CNW — Florida Agriculture Commissioner Calls DOJ Memo on Gun Rights Lawsuit Insulting

420 with CNW — Study Finds Marijuana Legalization Reduces Incidents of Synthetic Cannabinoid Poisoning

Although synthetic cannabinoids such as Spice and K2 are much more potent than natural cannabinoids, they are often mixed with dangerous chemicals, including stimulants, blood thinners and opioids that can make them deadly. An outbreak of synthetic cannabinoids contaminated with anticoagulants in 2018 caused excessive bleeding that affected more than 300 people and took at least eight lives. A study using data sourced from the National Poison Data System (NPDS) recently revealed that states with legal marijuana access record significantly fewer synthetic cannabinoid poisoning cases. Study authors hypothesize that cannabis policies that allow legal sales provide little incentive for people…
