420 with CNW — FDA Boss Says DEA Doesn’t Have Reason to Delay Cannabis Rescheduling

U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) director Robert Califf noted before a House committee on April 11, 2024, that there is no justification for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to postpone making the much-anticipated decision to move cannabis from Schedule I to III of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). However, Califf suggested that the DEA might treat recreational cannabis differently from medical cannabis, a move that could significantly impact the American marijuana industry. Analysts have speculated on the implications of such a potential distinction, noting that it might result in tax advantages for medical cannabis enterprises over recreational ones.…

420 with CNW — Why the UK Needs to Consider Decriminalizing Cannabis As Germany Just Did

Germany recently passed a new law that decriminalizes marijuana possession and cultivation for personal use, permitting individuals over the age of 18 to possess up to 25 grams of marijuana and cultivate up to three plants for personal use. Beginning in July 2024, German citizens can also join cannabis grower’s associations or not-for-profit social clubs that focus on the collective cultivation of cannabis for members’ benefit. In contrast to Germany’s progressive stance, the UK government maintains its support for cannabis prohibition, which sets it apart from several nations, including certain U.S. states, Canada and Malta. One of the primary arguments…

420 with CNW — DOJ Court Filing Asserts That Cannabis Supports Tourism Industry

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) is once again urging a federal court to reject a lawsuit filed by prominent cannabis companies aiming to halt the enforcement of federal laws against marijuana activities permitted by states.

In its recent submission to the United States District Court of Massachusetts, the DOJ disapproved assertions made by marijuana businesses, refuting the notion that federal policies contradict enforcement practices. It further contended that the plaintiffs lacked standing to file the complaint. According to the…
