Companies Sue Federal Government, Saying Cannabis Prohibition Isn’t Premised on Rationality

A recently filed lawsuit argues that the ongoing prohibition of marijuana has no rational basis. The lawyers representing a group of cannabis companies have based their argument on the federal government’s current approach on the matter. They argue that legislators and the executive branch have deserted their mission to eliminate illegal interstate commerce of marijuana, which was enforced with the establishment of the Controlled Substances Act. The lawyers note that with more states legalizing and regulating recreational and/or medical marijuana and offering consumers safe and local access to the drug, they are actively decreasing illegal interstate commerce as more individuals…

420 with CNW — How Cannabis Firms Can Prepare Themselves for Future After Rescheduling

In 2015, shortly after Colorado initiated recreational cannabis sales, marijuana operators faced a significant lesson regarding the strictness surrounding the term “organic” from state and federal authorities. Most operators had to change their business names to exclude the term. The U.S. Agriculture Department is in charge of the organic label and has accredited third-party organizations to certify farmers and their farming methods. Federal prohibition kept marijuana from receiving official organic certification at the time, and it continues to do so despite developments in licensed cannabis operations. Even so, there is a clear trend in the prevalence of cannabinoids such as…

Study Says More Teens Are Using Delta-8 THC Products

A new study has found that more than 11% of seniors in high school are using delta-8 THC.
