420 with CNW – Facebook May Shift its Position on Marijuana

Cannabis businesses and those affiliated to the industry have grown used to waking up and finding that their Facebook pages have been deleted or suspended due to being flagged for carrying unacceptable content (read marijuana). However, this may soon change if the internal discussions going on within the platform bear the desired fruit. The social media platform is reportedly thinking about amending its rules so that Facebook users can promote the cannabis products that they sell. The existing policies don’t permit the sale of marijuana and other controlled substances on the platform. If the changes are made, the sale of…

420 with CNW – Idaho Police to Procure Equipment That Distinguishes Cannabis from Hemp

A committee of the Idaho State Assembly has approved funding so that the state police can buy the equipment needed to test whether a given plant is industrial hemp or marijuana.

The owner of the cargo, Big Sky Scientific, tried to get a court order to compel the police to release the cargo since it was deteriorating rapidly as the police continues with its investigations. The company argued that it was…

420 with CNW – The US Cannabis Industry Has So Far Created 211,000 Full-Time Jobs

Because marijuana remains illegal at the federal level, it isn’t possible to get accurate statistics about the jobs available in the industry from federal agencies like the Bureau of Labor Statistics. However, Whitney Economics and Leafly.com decided to painstakingly gather the data from each state where cannabis is legal and their findings are eye-catching. The data analysts discovered that so far, the legal cannabis industry has created 211,000 full-time jobs within the U.S. This shows that the industry is one to watch if the problem of unemployment is to be tackled. The statistics collected show that out of the 211,000…

420 with CNW – Signature Gathering Slated to Start on Nebraska Medical Marijuana Ballot Measure

420 with CNW – This is How Much Recreational Pot Canadians Bought in 2018

If you were asked to make a random guess about how much weed Canadians bought (and presumably consumed) since recreational marijuana was legalized in October last year, what would you say? Well, Statistics Canada released recreational cannabis sales data and the figures are surprising, to say the least. The statistics show that in October last year, Canadians bought recreational cannabis worth $32.7 million while November sales amounted to $40.4 million. In December, Canadians bought recreational cannabis products worth $41.9 million. These figures are considered to be highly reliable because the Canadian marijuana market is highly regulated. You should therefore not…

Following the recommendations by the World Health Organization ("WHO") that whole-plant cannabis and its resin should be reclassified, the U.S. FDA has issued a notice asking interested parties to submit their views on this matter so that the position that the U.S. takes when the matter comes up for a vote at the UN is informed by the views collected.
