420 with CNW – Coca-Cola May Make Marijuana-Infused Drinks

News coming in about the carbonated beverages giant Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO) shows that the company is seriously thinking about a new product line of “wellness” drinks that are infused with cannabidiol (CBD), one of the non-psychoactive ingredients in cannabis. News of Coca-Cola’s interest emerged after it was revealed that the company was engaged in talks with Aurora Cannabis, Inc. about the possibility of partnering to make those wellness drinks. Coca-Cola was itself cagey about the possibility of making the drinks, only saying that it was watching with keen interest the development of CBD in the rapidly evolving cannabis industry. The…

420 with CNW – Utah Set to Vote on Legalization of Medical Cannabis

Voters in Utah are set to vote on a bill (Proposition 2) that would legalize access to medical cannabis. The polls are slated for November 6, 2018. Prop 2 is unique from other mid-term issues to be voted upon because it originated from voters themselves rather than from their elected leaders. Over 113,000 voter signatures were collected in order to get this matter on the ballot. Under the proposed law, individuals with a health condition that meets the requirements stated in the Act can get a recommendation from a doctor. That recommendation can then be used to apply for a…

420 with CNW – UC San Diego Researchers to Study Effect of Cannabis on Essential Tremors

Researchers at the University College San Diego have announced their intention to investigate the effect of using cannabis extracts to treat or manage essential tremor. The announcement came after the group of researchers (led by Dr. Fatta Nahab) got permission from the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) to import capsules of CBD and THC from Tilray, a Canadian-based cannabis company. Tilray conducted an initial public offering (IPO) in the U.S. The researchers opted to import the capsules since none are available from the sole source of cannabis for research purposes (University of Mississippi). Capsules were preferred for this study because of…

420 with CNW – Drama Characterizes Passing of Cannabis Bill by Congressional Committee

The Medical Cannabis Research Act was finally passed by the House Judiciary Committee of Congress. This was the first time in 50 years that a Republican-dominated congressional committee has passed any legal cannabis reform legislation. Republic Mathew Gaetz and 40 other cosponsors set the momentum rolling for the Thursday vote, which paved the way for additional facilities to get licenses to grow research-grade cannabis. Congressman Matt Gaetz said that the U.S. had for too long been trapped in a catch-22 situation in which cannabis laws couldn’t be revised due to the absence of sufficient scientific research, yet that needed research could…

420 with CNW – Ottawa Police Department Rejects Cannabis Roadside Test Kits

The police department in Ottawa, Canada, has rejected the roadside test kits which the federal government approved for catching drivers who are impaired by the consumption of marijuana. DrugTest 5000, already in use in several states across the U.S., was introduced in Canada ahead of the October 17 date when recreational cannabis will be available across the country. The Ottawa P.D. cites a number of reasons for its stance. First, the police say that the DrugTest 5000 kits are very expensive. Each unit reportedly costs $6,000. The regulations in place require the police to conduct a cannabis test as soon…

420 with CNW – Washington D.C. Sees Spike of Synthetic Marijuana Overdoses

It seems the synthetic marijuana overdoses that had the authorities in Washington, D.C worried in July have resurfaced after a lull. In one 24-hour period alone, first responders were called to assist dozens of people who exhibited severe signs of distress from K2 or Spice, a known synthetic form of cannabis. Even more distressing is the fact that students witnessed some of the victims being helped on the street as the students were strolling about during their break. This was near Mundo Verde Bilingual Public School. The authorities responded by imposing restrictions on how far students could go during their…

420 with CNW – Cannabis and Crypto

Cannabis firms have fought regulations and misconceptions for quite a long time as they have made attempts to inform the public on the medical benefits of the plant. In the recent couple of years, cannabis companies have started recording a surge in interest, as evidenced by their monthly record sales. Investors in Wall Street project that the industry will attain a valuation of $75 billion by the end of 2030. Almost coincidentally, cryptos have also been enjoying a surge in popularity, with values of top cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and Ethereum hitting record levels. Toward the end of 2017, the…

420 with CNW – Massachusetts Credit Union to Offer Banking Services to Cannabis Industry

The GFA Federal Credit Union has become the first financial institution to announce that it is opening its doors to recreational and medical cannabis businesses in Massachusetts.

420 with CNW – UCLA Team to Investigate the Painkilling Effects of Cannabis

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that 42,000 Americans died from an overdose of opioids in 2016 alone. Meanwhile, the consumption of cannabis by members of the American public has been growing rapidly over the years. How are these two issues related to the planned research on cannabis? Plenty of anecdotal evidence exists to support the claim that cannabis has painkilling abilities. Several scientific studies also point to the possibility of cannabis having painkilling effects. However, little reliable scientific information is available to support or disprove those claims. That may no longer be the case if…

420 with CNW – Canadian Cannabis Investors at Risk of US Entry Bans

In a disturbing development, Canadians who have invested in the cannabis industry now face the risk of being banned permanently from entering the United States. This reality came to light when a prominent Canadian venture capitalist, Sam Znaimer, was told he was permanently barred from entering the U.S. due to his equity holdings in American cannabis companies whose shares are publicly traded on Canadian stock exchanges, such as the Toronto Stock Exchange. He was shocked by the decision, since no single question had been posed regarding whether or not he consumed cannabis. His shock is understandable given the fact that…
