420 with CNW — Records Show Arizona Crossed $100M Mark for Monthly Cannabis Sales

State data has revealed that Arizona’s recreational cannabis market passed the $100 million sales threshold in March.

420 with CNW — Italy Moves to Regulate Its ‘Marijuana Light’ Program

Last week, Italian lawmakers presented proposals aimed at regulating Italy’s booming low-THC cannabis industry. Dubbed “cannabis light,” Italy’s industry is now home to multitudes of retail outlets selling cannabis with low levels of THC. Although legislators didn’t initially set out to legalize recreational cannabis, a measure meant to legalize industrial hemp, a type of cannabis that has little to no THC, opened a loophole that allowed the cannabis light sector to take root. The government is now working to regulate the sector. On June 20, 2023, Italian Prime Minister Gorgia Meloni proposed amending tobacco legislation and extending it to cover…

420 with CNW — Despite Ongoing Challenges, California’s Legal Cannabis Market Remains Huge

Despite facing financial and tax challenges, California's marijuana industry remains unparalleled as the largest cannabis market globally. According to the recent MJBizFactbook report, the state is projected to generate approximately $5.9 billion in legal medical and recreational cannabis sales in 2023. To provide perspective, this revenue could sustain the economy of a small island country. For instance, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) estimates that Barbados’s gross domestic product (GDP) will reach $6.1 billion this year. Additionally, the IMF forecasts Fiji's GDP to be approximately $5.4 billion. Given California's colossal cannabis market, its magnitude is not surprising. If California were an…

420 with CNW — Florida AG Tells Supreme Court Cannabis Legalization Measure is Misleading to Voters

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody is working hard to keep a cannabis legalization initiative off the 2024 ballot. The attorney general recently issued a brief to the Florida Supreme Court detailing why she is opposed to the addition of the legalization measure on next year’s ballot. Moody had received a two-week extension from the court to give her more time to finish the brief, and she submitted it on the Monday deadline. The Attorney General’s office is looking to nullify the marijuana legalization measure based on the argument that its ballot summary’s language is “affirmatively misleading” in several ways. According…

420 with CNW — Cannabis High Linked to Improved Symptoms Among Patients Using Medical Marijuana

More than 30 states now allow their residents to purchase and even grow medical cannabis to treat several allowed conditions. Even though cannabis users typically tend to be younger, a decent portion of medical marijuana patients are older people dealing with conditions such as insomnia and chronic pain from arthritis. For a lot of medical marijuana patients, especially older ones, the “high” that comes with consuming THC cannabis isn’t always welcome.  Some patients have taken to using cannabis alongside CBD (cannabidiol) to reduce the high, while some researchers have even developed a cannabis strain that delivers the benefits without the…

The joint efforts of the National Football League (NFL) and its players' union have resulted in the announcement of a new round of funding for independent research on the therapeutic advantages of CBD as an alternative treatment for pain in concussed players instead of relying on opioids.
