420 with CNW – Canadian Employers Meet to Discuss Cannabis Legalization Implications

The cannabis forum of the Retail Council of Canada (RCC) met last month to discuss the workplace implications of cannabis legalization. The forum speakers and participants raised some issues that all employers need to think about as they adjust to the new reality in the country. The first issue related to the medical cover provided to employees. Employers were asked to think about how they would respond if employees filed claims for medical cannabis benefits. Does the law compel the employer to provide such cover, or it is left to employers to decide whether to provide those benefits? The second…

420 with CNW – Greenhouses Could Eliminate the Cannabis Black Market

Canada has seen a number of cannabis cultivators shifting to the use of greenhouses instead of growing the crop in indoor grow rooms. This new development could mark the final days for the cannabis black market in Canada and elsewhere. Greenhouses can drive down the cost of legal marijuana in several ways. As you may know, land accounts for one of the biggest costs that marijuana cultivators have to incur in order to bring the produce to the market. Indoor grows are located on prime industrial land which costs a fortune. The shift to greenhouses means that cannabis producers can…

420 with CNW – What the World Can Learn from the Dutch about Cannabis

Debate about cannabis has taken center-stage across the world after Canada took the bold decision to legalize recreational marijuana on October 17 this year. As people observe events in Canada, the true lessons about marijuana may lie in Europe, the Netherlands in particular. Several lessons are plain to see for those who are willing to observe how the Dutch have handled the issue of cannabis. Neutral Observation is Important While Nixon’s government declared all-out war on marijuana and other psychoactive substances, the Dutch opted for another approach. They decided to neither outlaw nor legalize cannabis. They “tolerated” it and observed…

420 with CNW – Mexican Government Drafts Law to Legalize Marijuana

The incoming government of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador in Mexico has drafted a bill which is likely to see medical and recreational cannabis legalized once Congress passes it. The bill is intended to change the approach that Mexico has been taking to fight crime. The past 12 years have seen escalations in violence and poverty as the country fought to bring down the organized crime networks built around the illicit cultivation and sale of cannabis within and beyond the borders of Mexico, especially to the U.S. Olga Sanchez, the Interior Minister-nominee, said that it was now time to bring peace…

420 with CNW – Attorney for Oregon Selected to Head Marijuana Group

The head of the federal prosecutors in Oregon has been selected to lead the U.S. Attorney General’s Marijuana Working Group. This group is made up of all the federal prosecutors in the states where cannabis is legal in some form (recreational and, or medical). Billy Williams of Oregon will lead this 16-member panel. The panel examines how the different states are handling matters of law enforcement, policy and practices with regards to marijuana. The committee isn’t a new creation. It existed long before Donald Trump took office. The panel is part of the sub-committee which advises the U.S. Attorney General…

420 with CNW – Stanford Research Shows Marijuana Improves the Sex Life of Women

Researchers at Stanford University were intrigued by the numerous reports on the internet claiming that cannabis was beneficial to the sex lives of women. The researchers therefore decided to put that anecdotal evidence to the test. The results, published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, confirmed that women had better sexual experiences if they consumed cannabis before indulging in sex. Don’t imagine that bespectacled old scientists stood by with their microscopes and other instruments in order to measure what was happening as the study’s subjects had sex. No, nothing of the sort happened. Instead, an Obstetrics/Gynecology (ObGyn) clinical practice was…

420 with CNW – The Largest Cannabis Store in the World Opens in Las Vegas

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas? Not so, if the recently opened recreational cannabis megastore is anything to go buy. Las Vegas has always been known for setting the bar when it comes to giving people a good time, but the level to which “Planet 13” has taken cannabis will send waves around the world due to its massive size and opulence. Nevada State Senator Tick Segerblom summarized it well in his opening remarks when he said, “Welcome to Amsterdam on steroids!” Amsterdam, the Dutch capital, has previously held the record for being the best destination for those who…

420 with CNW – South African Cannabis Workshop Tickets Sell Out in Record Time

The first weekend of November witnessed the first ever cannabis grow workshop in Cape Town, South Africa. Event tickets were sold out in two days flat after the organizer, Grant Taylor, went to social media to announce the event. He said that the idea of organizing a workshop on how to grow marijuana was motivated by two things. First, the Constitutional Court ruled recently that adults were free to grow and consume cannabis in South Africa as long as it wasn’t sold or consumed in public. Secondly, Grant had previously tried to grow something and he had failed miserably. He…

A new film focusing on how medical cannabis has helped children suffering from cancer has been released. The film is titled “Weed the People”.

420 with CNW – Why US Cannabis Companies Are Listing in Canada

Over the coming months and years, more and more U.S. cannabis companies are likely to move north in order to list on stock exchanges in Canada. Many short term and long-term interests are driving this move. First, Canada recently legalized recreational cannabis years after medical cannabis was permitted in that country. This means that the uniform laws in Canada make that country more attractive (for now) than the U.S. where marijuana companies operating in legal states must constantly look over their shoulders in fear because the federal authorities can take action against them for violating federal laws. Legitimate cannabis companies…
