420 with CNW — Twitter Ad Policies Pose Challenges for Cannabis Advertisers

Businesses in the cannabis sector have had to deal with extremely restrictive marketing and advertising regulations since the industry’s inception. Since cannabis is still considered a Schedule I controlled drug at the federal level, most advertisers simply cannot advertise cannabis products without running afoul of federal law. Furthermore, states with legal cannabis products often place severe restrictions on advertising to prevent exposing cannabis to children and youth. Consequently, cannabis businesses have been forced to find ways outside the usual marketing pipelines to advertise their products to the public. Twitter, which has more than 350 million users globally, announced in March…

420 with CNW — Federal Study Concludes Breathalyzers Are Unreliable as Recent Cannabis-Use Tests

A recent study funded by the federal government highlights the challenges associated with developing a cannabis breathalyzer. The research, conducted by National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Colorado Boulder University, demonstrates that determining recent marijuana use based on THC levels in breath is highly unreliable due to inconsistencies. The study, published in the “Breath Research” Journal, involved 18 participants from Colorado who consumed retail marijuana with approximately 25% THC. Breath and blood samples were taken 15 minutes before and one hour after smoking marijuana, using a well-equipped white van conveniently parked outside their homes. The analysis was conducted…

420 with CNW — NJ Regulators to Only Grant Social Equity Applicants Cannabis Licenses

Social equity has been a major part of America’s state-level cannabis reform over the past decade. People of color were significantly more likely to be arrested for cannabis-related offenses and receive harsh sentences compared to White people throughout the entirety of the drug war despite similar use rates. As a result, entire Black and Brown communities were decimated, sending multitudes of parents and breadwinners to prison for relatively tame offenses and saddling them with criminal records that made it difficult to integrate back into society. Furthermore, entire generations of children were forced to grow up in poverty as their parents…

420 with CNW — Proposed California Law Could Legalize Marijuana Cafes

The wave of cannabis reform that has swept across America over the past two decades doesn’t seem to be stopping any time soon.

With California now home to what is undoubtedly the largest cannabis market in the world, state lawmakers are currently working on a bill that would legalize marijuana cafes and allow the sale of both…
