The economic impact of the Coronavirus pandemic has been immense.

Of the over 800,000 confirmed Coronavirus cases in the world, at least 100,000 are from Spain.

420 with CNW – Marijuana Companies Donate PPE and Sanitizers to Healthcare Workers in COVID-19 Fight

Hand sanitizer has become one of the most precious commodities on the market right now. Three months after appearing in Wuhan, China, the Coronavirus pandemic has infected over 700,000 individuals and claimed at least 30,000 lives. Medical experts say regularly washing your hands with soap and water or sanitizer is the best way to avoid contracting the virus, alongside social distancing and self-isolation. However, panic buying coupled with an extremely high demand for hand sanitizers and personal protection equipment (PPE) has led to a shortage. And as the number of COVID-19 patients increases, we can expect more shortages, especially as…

420 with CNW – Senate Housing Bill Proposes Protections for Marijuana Extractors

Marijuana has been illegal at the federal level for quite a while. It is the world's most used drug, and over the years, a lot of people have found themselves facing marijuana-related charges. However, more and more states have legalized marijuana in various capacities, and this throws into question how to treat people with marijuana-related convictions. Some are of the opinion that their records should be expunged and that individuals currently serving time for marijuana-related convictions have their rulings overturned. Most legal marijuana programs use part of the tax revenue from sales to address this, but there's still a long…
