420 with CNW – Epileptic Dogs Get Fewer Seizures When Given CBD Oil, Study Finds

A new study whose results were published in the journal Pet Behavior Science indicates that dogs with epilepsy have less frequent seizures if treated using CBD oil. The study was small because it only followed three dogs over a period of two months while those dogs were treated with CBD oil. The research suggests that dogs respond to cannabis treatment in the same way that humans do. The age and breed of the dogs studied varied. For example, one dog was a Labrador Retriever aged 3. This dog used to suffer an average of one epileptic seizure every month. A…

420 with CNW – Texas Lawmakers to Vote on Cannabis Decriminalization This Week

About a month ago, the Texas House Jurisprudence Committee passed a bill that would make low-level cannabis possession a crime punishable by a fine rather than jail time. That bill is now before the House and it will be voted on this week (Thursday). If the bill becomes law, anyone found in possession of an ounce or less of marijuana would pay a fine of $250. Such a crime would then become a Class C misdemeanor if one is caught more than twice. Under the current law, anyone who is found with two ounces or less of marijuana can be…

420 with CNW – West Virginia Looks for Financial Institution to Handle Medical Cannabis Money

The Treasurer’s Office in West Virginia plans to issue a request for proposals (RFP) by the end of next month (May 2019) inviting interested financial institutions to submit their proposals for handling the money generated by the state from the medical cannabis industry. These funds will include license fees, fines, taxes and other revenues accruing from medical marijuana. Earlier this year, the legislature passed a law to expand the scope of the types of financial institutions that could express interest in handling this money from medical marijuana. Credit unions and other non-traditional banking companies are now eligible to apply. It…

420 with CNW – Maine Releases Recreational Marijuana Draft Rules

Ever since voters in Maine approved a ballot measure to legalize recreational marijuana in 2016, the state had never formulated rules to regulate the commercialization of adult-use cannabis even if residents were allowed to grow a limited number of cannabis plants soon after the midterm vote that paved the way for recreational marijuana. Two years later, the state has released its draft rules indicating how the recreational market will be regulated. The draft rules indicate that applicants will first have to obtain a conditional license from the state before getting the approval of the town or city where the applicants…

420 with CNW – Cannabis Legalization Not Linked to Increased Traffic Fatalities, Study Finds

According to a new study whose findings were released this month, there is no link between the legalization of marijuana and an increase in traffic deaths. This conclusion was arrived at by Andrew Young, a graduate student at Kansas State University after he analyzed traffic deaths data covering 23 years. Young used two different statistical models to assess how the change in cannabis policy and laws in different states has impacted road safety. The researcher concluded that the legalization of marijuana isn’t a significant predictor of fatalities on roads. This means that statistically, there is no proof that cannabis legalization…

420 with CNW – Nevada Dragged to Court Over the Issuance of Marijuana Licenses

The growing discontent among companies that weren’t selected to receive one of the marijuana business licenses issued by the State of Nevada has grown to an extent of lawsuits being filed against the tax department. A dozen companies have gone to court and want the state to be stopped from issuing more licenses until court decides whether the selection process was “capricious and violated the state constitution.” A total of six lawsuits have been filed, all alleging that no one knows what criteria was used by the state when selecting the cannabis companies to grant a license and which applications…

420 with CNW – StatsCan Reveals that Cannabis Legalization Resulted in Canadian Weed Becoming More Expensive

Data released by Statistics Canada last week shows that after recreational cannabis was legalized in Canada on October 17, 2018, the price of legal marijuana increased by approximately 17 percent. However, the Canadians who are buying pot from the licensed suppliers are paying about 57 percent more for the product when compared to those who are getting their weed from the black market. Statistics Canada (StatsCan) arrived at these figures after collecting data from residents who were asked to volunteer information without any fear that they would be victimized for revealing their cannabis buying habits. This creative approach helped StatsCan…

420 with CNW – Canadian Marijuana Consumers Unaware They Can Object to ID Scanning

Canadian law requires cannabis buyers to present a valid ID for verification before one buys recreational or medical cannabis. However, some retail stores are going a step further and scanning the IDs of their customers. Such scanning isn’t provided for in the law, and the stores doing so are using that information for their own purposes. For example, some may use the collected data to track buyer behavior. The danger in scanning cannabis buyers’ IDs is that there is still a lot of stigma attached to cannabis users. It would therefore be very damaging if the data collected by the…

420 with CNW – American Cannabis Sales Expected to Double on 4/20

For the uninitiated, 4/20 in the marijuana industry can be equated to Fourth of July. The exact origin of that “holiday” isn’t known, but there is speculation that the day is named after the time of the day (4:20 p.m.) when a group of students would meet outside their high school in the 1970s to hunt for some legendary cannabis plants that had been abandoned. According to that myth, those students never found that marijuana crop, so they doggedly kept up their search. On 4/20, sales of marijuana are expected to, at the very least, double at all retail facilities…

420 with CNW – First Medical Cannabis Greenhouse Opened in Sydney

Approximately one year ago, the Australian federal government changed its rules on marijuana and cleared the way for cannabis to be grown using taxpayer money. Those changes have seen the first government-run cannabis greenhouse opening in Sydney, New South Wales. The plan is to start by growing limited amounts of cannabis for research purposes before commercial cultivation can begin. Right now, the plants in the greenhouse will be studied on issues like humidity, fertilizers, temperature, lighting and other growing factors necessary to produce a crop whose attributes are uniform. Once the facility can produce cannabis of the same medical quality,…
