420 with CNW — Ohio Governor Urges Lawmakers to Enable Adult-Use Cannabis Sales

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has urged state lawmakers to enable recreational marijuana sales before the end of the year. During a recent interview with newspaper editors, Gov. DeWine said that although Ohio voters approved a measure to legalize recreational cannabis in late 2023, recreational sales won't begin until the end of 2024. The governor noted that Ohio is in a sort of “goofy situation” where recreational cannabis consumption and cultivation are legal, but the state still hasn’t approved retail locations to sell adult-use marijuana. As a result, black-market sellers are stepping in and taking advantage of the market gap to…

420 with CNW — Congressional Researchers Highlight Shortcomings of Cannabis Rescheduling Recommendation

A recently published Congressional Research Service (CRS) report has highlighted the potential shortcomings of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) marijuana rescheduling recommendation. Last year, the HHS published a series of documents recommending that the U. S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) reschedule marijuana to Schedule III of the Controlled Substances Act. HHS officials justified the recommendation on the grounds that cannabis currently has “accepted medical uses” and thus did not meet the conditions required of Schedule I drugs. Rescheduling cannabis from Schedule I to Schedule III would finally make it legal for doctors to prescribe marijuana at…

420 with CNW — Study Suggests Marijuana Isn’t Effective as Treatment for Opioid Addiction

A recent study involving 8,367 patients undergoing treatment for opioid-use disorder has challenged the notion that cannabis serves as an effective remedy for overcoming opioid addiction. The study, published in “The American Drug and Alcohol Abuse” Journal, revealed that marijuana, when used outside of medical supervision, fails to exert any noteworthy impact on opioid consumption. The study carries significant implications for treatment programs in the United States, some of which impose a prerequisite for patients to abstain from marijuana before qualifying for life-saving interventions. This is predicated on the idea that people who use cannabis are more inclined to use…

A recent annual report has shown that the number of persons registered for the medical cannabis program in Florida experienced a gradual increase throughout the fiscal year 2023.
