For decades, researchers who were able to secure cannabis research permits were required by federal law to source cannabis flower from a farm at the University of Mississippi. Researchers have long complained that the cannabis produced at the university was subpar and impacted research into the plant’s potential benefits and risks. In 2019, a study by University of Northern Colorado researchers revealed that the cannabis grown at the University of Mississippi was genetically closer to hemp than the cannabis sold in commercial dispensaries. Consequently, researchers, reform activists and stakeholders have been pressuring regulators to allow the use of commercial cannabis…

420 with CNW — Nevada Judge Rules That Marijuana Should Be Removed from Schedule 1 Classification

Last week, a judge in Nevada ruled that the classification of cannabis as Schedule I substance under the federal Controlled Substances Act went against Nevada’s constitution. This ruling comes after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled that the federal government’s decision to classify marijuana as a Schedule I drug wasn’t unconstitutional, despite being irrational. The case’s defendants argued that cannabis’ scheduling under the Controlled Substances Act had no rational basis because the plant didn’t meet the criteria for inclusion under its current schedule. The Controlled Substances Act was approved by the 91st United States Congress in…

420 with CNW — New Cannabis Reforms in Massachusetts Seek to Improve Equity, Local Levies

For the most part, cannabis reform measures across the United States have included social equity provisions designed to address the harms of the war on drugs. Long considered to be a failure, the drug war disproportionately affected Black and Brown communities and exacerbated systemic racial biases. More than two decades after California legalized recreational and medical cannabis, states are passing cannabis legalization measures with robust social equity and criminal justice provisions to compensate these communities and give them a leg-up in the multi-billion dollar cannabis industry. In Massachusetts, for example, lawmakers recently passed sweeping cannabis legislation with a major focus…
