420 with CNW — Study Links Marijuana Use to Improved Quality, Frequency of Sex

A recent scientific assessment of scholarly studies on human sexuality and cannabis has found that there is a complex link between sex and cannabis use. However, the general consensus is that cannabis tends to increase the frequency, enjoyment and desire for sex. The review, published in the “Psychopharmacology Journal,” suggests that higher amounts of cannabis may impair performance and desire, while smaller doses may be more favorable to sexual fulfillment. The effects also appear to vary based on gender. The study’s authors noted that marijuana can improve intimacy with partners, reduce shame and anxiety, lessen inhibitions and increase sexual pleasure.…

Delaware Starts Prepping for Adult-Use Cannabis Market Launch

Last month, legislators in Delaware approved a measure that would allow medical cannabis licensees in the state to apply for conversion licenses to cultivate and sell recreational marijuana. Governor John Carney is expected to sign the measure in the coming weeks. The recently approved measure was sponsored by Representative Ed Osienski, who revealed that cultivation was the most difficult pathway to use to enter the marijuana industry.

This was why…

420 with CNW — Study Shows Partner Violence Decreases After Marijuana Legalization

A recent study found that the legalization of recreational cannabis significantly reduces intimate partner violence (IPV). The research highlights that legal recreational marijuana affects the link between heavy alcohol consumption and IPV, likely because people are choosing cannabis over alcohol. The study was written by Georgetown University master student Samantha Gene Baldwin, who described the findings as surprising. “Given that cannabis use is an established IPV-risk factor, and that legalization typically leads to increased usage, one might expect RML to elevate IPV rates,” Baldwin explained. “RML may lessen its negative effects on IPV, though, if marijuana takes the place of…

420 with CNW — Tax Exemptions That Companies Could Access Once Cannabis Rescheduling Is Complete

The marijuana industry has been significantly hindered by Section 280E of the IRS Code, which prevents businesses dealing with substances listed in Schedules 1 and 2 of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) from deducting regular business expenses. Although Section 280E affects federal deductions, the regulations are not governed by federal laws in half of the markets where marijuana businesses are licensed to sell the drug for recreational or medical purposes. This implies that when cannabis businesses submit their state taxes, they are not subject to Section 280E. This provision has stunted the growth of legal cannabis businesses across the country.…
