420 with CNW – Why Suppositories will be Big in the Medical Marijuana Industry

Many people may feel rather squeamish about sticking a cannabis suppository up their backside, but this method of administration is beginning to attract widespread attention as a way to administer medical cannabis. Several reasons can explain their growing popularity. Better Absorption Rates The most common ways to take medical cannabis are by eating or smoking the substance. However, these two methods of administration don’t allow enough of the cannabis consumed to be absorbed into the bloodstream.

420 with CNW – Israeli Cabinet Approves Export of Marijuana Products

Toward the end of last year, we reported that the Israeli parliament had passed a bill permitting local companies to export medical marijuana. However, there were fears that the cabinet may wait until after elections before pronouncing itself on this matter.

The cabinet’s decision leaned on the recommendations made by an inter-ministerial committee (finance and health ministries) that was tasked with studying the Act of parliament and then advise the cabinet…

Instead, conversations about the substance should be conducted on an ongoing basis so that kids are empowered to make the right decisions when confronted by opportunities to use the substance. Speaking in Toronto at a “Women and Weed” event last weekend, Brown said that…

A stalemate had developed between the Senate President and the Governor of New Jersey regarding how the marijuana industry will be taxed once an appropriate law is passed.

Previously, Stephen Sweeney (the Senate President) had dug his heels in that he would not go along with any marijuana legalization law that set the tax rate at more than 12 percent.
