420 with CNW – Study Finds That Marijuana Use Disorder is Declining

According to a new study, the number of people diagnosed with cannabis use disorder (CUD) is not increasing.

420 with CNW – Recreational Marijuana Could Be Available in Michigan Sooner Than Expected

Potential marijuana businesses in Michigan are eagerly waiting for recreational licenses to be processed. This will allow them to start cultivating, processing, and selling legal pot to the residents. Depending on the time the businesses are licensed, the current rules, and the duration of the growth cycle, it is estimated that recreational marijuana is likely to be available on the market in March or April.
