420 with CNW – Colorado Data Shows Drop in Workplace Fatalities After Medical Marijuana Legalization

Researchers from three universities (Montana State University, American University in Washington D.C. and Colorado State University) have analyzed workplace fatality data spanning from 1992 to 2015 and discovered that there were fewer fatal accidents at work once medical cannabis was legalized. The research will be published in October in the International Journal of Drug Policy. The findings seem to be unexpected given that it has always been known that cannabis use compromises cognition and psychomotor activity, so fatal accidents would increase rather than decrease once medical cannabis use was permitted by law. However, the data speaks for itself. A 19.5%…

420 with CNW – Nearly 1 in 11 Teens Vapes Marijuana

A recent study which was published in the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) Pediatrics Edition has revealed that almost one in 11 American teenagers uses an electronic cigarette to consume cannabis. The findings stem from a survey which was conducted in 2016. Over 2,000 middle and high school teens participated in the study. That proportion of kids who vape marijuana translates to approximately two million teens across the U.S. A similar study conducted by the University of Michigan had similar findings more than a month ago. The CDC survey found that more boys than girls were likely to consume…

420 with CNW – EU Parliament Drafts Medical Marijuana Law

Currently, each EU member country is responsible for formulating and implementing its own cannabis laws as it sees fit. This has created a lot of contradictions and inconsistencies between the laws of the member states. This situation is bound to change in the event that the draft law that is being worked on by the health committee passes through all the stages and is endorsed by the EU council of ministers. A public hearing is planned for October 1 to discuss the feasibility of that proposal. One of the key aims of the draft law is to state how medical…

420 with CNW – Michigan Judge Halts Cannabis Business Closures

Judge Stephen Borrello of Michigan’s Court of Claims has issued an injunction against the state’s order to close almost 100 medical marijuana businesses that hadn’t met a section of the emergency licensing regulations passed by regulators. Just over 100 dispensaries had submitted partially completed application forms as the September 15 deadline approached. Only those businesses that had submitted their papers would be allowed to operate until December 15, when the licensing process was expected to be completed. The judge’s injunction orders the state to allow all cannabis businesses, including those that hadn’t submitted their applications, to stay open until that…

420 with CNW – Louisiana Removes Cannabis Patient Cap on Doctors

The state of Louisiana voted to legalize medical cannabis in 2015. However, it has taken years for the laws to evolve and reach a level where patients can start accessing medical cannabis. This is now likely to happen in November of this year. The barrier on how many medical cannabis patients any doctor can handle has now been removed. Under the 2016 law, doctors with a license to recommend medical cannabis to patients were restricted to a maximum of 100 patients at a time. That limitation was found to be impractical, even before the first medical cannabis dispensaries opened. This…

420 with CNW – Study Suggests CBD Could Treat Psychosis

Researchers from King’s College London have found that a cannabis extract, cannabidiol (CBD), can reset the brain so that the abnormal reactions characteristic of psychosis is reduced. Their findings were published in the JAMA Psychiatry journal. The researchers were led by Sagnik Bhattacharyya, PhD., who works at King’s College London at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience. The team recruited 33 young people who hadn’t been diagnosed with psychosis but displayed the classic symptoms of that condition. Nineteen control subjects were also included in the study. These study subjects were divided into three groups. One group had the control…

420 with CNW – Coca-Cola May Make Marijuana-Infused Drinks

News coming in about the carbonated beverages giant Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO) shows that the company is seriously thinking about a new product line of “wellness” drinks that are infused with cannabidiol (CBD), one of the non-psychoactive ingredients in cannabis. News of Coca-Cola’s interest emerged after it was revealed that the company was engaged in talks with Aurora Cannabis, Inc. about the possibility of partnering to make those wellness drinks. Coca-Cola was itself cagey about the possibility of making the drinks, only saying that it was watching with keen interest the development of CBD in the rapidly evolving cannabis industry. The…

420 with CNW – Utah Set to Vote on Legalization of Medical Cannabis

Voters in Utah are set to vote on a bill (Proposition 2) that would legalize access to medical cannabis. The polls are slated for November 6, 2018. Prop 2 is unique from other mid-term issues to be voted upon because it originated from voters themselves rather than from their elected leaders. Over 113,000 voter signatures were collected in order to get this matter on the ballot. Under the proposed law, individuals with a health condition that meets the requirements stated in the Act can get a recommendation from a doctor. That recommendation can then be used to apply for a…

420 with CNW – UC San Diego Researchers to Study Effect of Cannabis on Essential Tremors

Researchers at the University College San Diego have announced their intention to investigate the effect of using cannabis extracts to treat or manage essential tremor. The announcement came after the group of researchers (led by Dr. Fatta Nahab) got permission from the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) to import capsules of CBD and THC from Tilray, a Canadian-based cannabis company. Tilray conducted an initial public offering (IPO) in the U.S. The researchers opted to import the capsules since none are available from the sole source of cannabis for research purposes (University of Mississippi). Capsules were preferred for this study because of…

420 with CNW – Drama Characterizes Passing of Cannabis Bill by Congressional Committee

The Medical Cannabis Research Act was finally passed by the House Judiciary Committee of Congress. This was the first time in 50 years that a Republican-dominated congressional committee has passed any legal cannabis reform legislation. Republic Mathew Gaetz and 40 other cosponsors set the momentum rolling for the Thursday vote, which paved the way for additional facilities to get licenses to grow research-grade cannabis. Congressman Matt Gaetz said that the U.S. had for too long been trapped in a catch-22 situation in which cannabis laws couldn’t be revised due to the absence of sufficient scientific research, yet that needed research could…
