420 with CNW – Lack of Regulations and Doctors’ Fears Threaten UK Medical Cannabis Program

Many patients celebrated when the UK government announced that doctors could start prescribing medical marijuana come November 1. However, the reality after that date is turning out to be frustrating for many patients as doctors seem reluctant to prescribe medical marijuana. The first hurdle that patients have to negotiate is to find a specialist doctor who can prescribe medical marijuana for the condition which the patient has. This requirement is different from what happens in other countries where any GP can prescribe medical marijuana after enrolling to participate in the program. As it is, many specialist doctors approached by patients…

We wrote earlier that cannabis shortages were registered across Canada from the time recreational cannabis became legal in the country. Those shortages seem to be getting worse with Quebec announcing that its government-controlled retail stores would close for three days each week for an unforeseen duration until marijuana supplies can be obtained in the quantities which can satisfy the currently high demand. The SDQC, the government agency charged with trading in cannabis within the province of Quebec, announced that its stores would be closed every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. These closures would help the stores to serve their customers better…

A federal court is set to hear a landmark case in Colorado which could have far-reaching implications for the young marijuana industry throughout the US.

420 with CNW – Will Utah’s Compromise Deal on Cannabis Work?

Patients, religious leaders, politicians and representatives from some medical cannabis advocacy groups in Utah recently came together to announce that a compromise had been reached to draft a law which would legalize medical cannabis whether the ballot measure (Proposition 2) succeeded during the midterm elections or not. This compromise deal seems to have been arrived at after Prop 2 polarized the conservative community and threatened to alienate major sections of the community, such as the Mormon Church. The compromise deal seeks to allow only six “medical cannabis pharmacies”  to operate out of which one would be run by the state…

420 with CNW – New York Liquor Stores Offer Solution to Recreational Marijuana Sales

The state of New York is hammering out the details of the law which will legalize recreational cannabis in the jurisdiction. One of the issues that has come up for consideration is how that cannabis will be distributed and sold once legalization takes place. Liquor stores have come together and proposed that they should be allowed to sell recreational marijuana throughout the state. This group advances several arguments in support of their proposal. First, they say that liquor stores exist throughout the state. Consequently, fewer resources will be wasted in setting up a new distribution and retail network for recreational…
