A survey conducted by a team of researchers based at Boston University shows that a slight majority of all city mayors across the U.S. supports the legalization of marijuana and the regulation of its sales. 110 current city mayors from 37 states in the nation were asked to share their views about marijuana and several other policy issues. The researchers found that 53 percent of the mayors were in favor of marijuana legalization and regulated sales within their cities while 35 percent of the mayors said they didn’t support the legalization of marijuana in their jurisdictions. Many of the mayors…

420 with CNW – US Virgin Islands Passes Medical Marijuana Law

On Tuesday last week, Gov. Albert Bryan Jr. signed a bill that legalized medical cannabis in the U.S. Virgin Islands. This brings to an end a long process that started with a referendum in favor of medical cannabis in 2014. 56.5 percent of the voters agreed that medical cannabis should be legalized and regulated. Senator Positive Nelson then drafted a bill to actualize medical cannabis in the jurisdiction but the bill didn’t sail through the legislature. He persisted in bringing new bills during each legislative session until the most recent one passed in December last year and was assented to…

420 with CNW – Washington Legislators Make Another Attempt at Legalizing Cannabis Homegrows

Washington State still remains as the only state where recreational cannabis is legal but residents aren’t allowed to grow the plant for their own use. However, this may change if the two bills introduced in the state legislature are passed, thereby allowing adults to grow a maximum of six plants for their own use. Previous attempts to pass similar bills have met with failure, so it isn’t a foregone conclusion that the attempts this year will bear fruit. The key difference this time round is that the two bills have bipartisan support, at least when the list of sponsors is…

420 with CNW – About 60 Closed Cannabis Dispensaries May Reopen in Michigan

The Michigan Medical Marijuana Licensing Board has voted to allow more than 60 medical cannabis dispensaries to reopen at least until March 31 as their license applications are processed. The decision was announced after there was an outcry that patients would find it hard to get medical cannabis if that large number of dispensaries is closed pending the processing of their license applications. The reprieve given to the closed businesses is subject to a number of conditions. First, the local government of the area should have granted the business approval to operate in their jurisdiction. The business should have also…

420 with CNW – Denmark Approves Bulk Medical Cannabis Exports

The Danish Ministry of Health has revealed that an executive order allowing local companies to export medical cannabis in bulk took effect on the first day of this year. This puts Denmark in pole position around the continent since many other countries are still staggering in their efforts to get medical cannabis programs running. For example, the military is the only entity authorized to grow cannabis in Italy while Germany is yet to get its domestic cultivation program going. Several foreign medical cannabis companies, including The Green Organic Dutchman and Canopy Growth have set foot in Denmark. Several reasons make…

420 with CNW – South Carolina Legislators Introduce Bill to Legalize Medical Marijuana

It seems South Carolina is next in line to act upon the growing popularity of marijuana across the U.S. Two legislators have tabled a bill that, if passed, would allow patients to start using medical marijuana. The Compassionate Care Act is sponsored by Rep. Peter McCoy and Sen. Tom Davis. When unveiling the bill, Sen. Davis said that their interest in introducing that bill was to make it possible for patients and their doctors to decide whether medical marijuana can be helpful in promoting the health of the patient. Such a decision should not be left to politicians or law…

420 with CNW – Oklahoma City School Board Passes Marijuana Policy

Voters in Oklahoma approved a ballot measure last year in June making medical marijuana legal in the state. Recently, the school district in Oklahoma City passed its own medical marijuana policy to clarify what employees and students could or could not do now that medical marijuana is legal in the state. On Monday this week (January 14), the Oklahoma City Public Schools Board released its marijuana policy in which the district asserted that it would not take any action against any employee who holds a medical marijuana license.

420 with CNW – Records Show 61 Tons of Medical Marijuana were Consumed in Arizona in 2018

State records that were published on January 14 show that Arizonans set a record in the state by consuming a total of 61 tons of different forms of medical marijuana. The report shows that Arizona medical cannabis dispensaries sold 2.5 tons of marijuana edibles last year. One interesting thing about this statistic is that in 2012, the entire state consumed that exact quantity of cannabis products. That year was the first full year since the medical marijuana was legalized. Another comparison with that first year has to do with the number of patients who acquired medical cannabis cards. In 2012,…
