420 with CNW — Marijuana Companies in Europe Consider Listing in US as Rescheduling Progresses

A number of European marijuana start-ups are thinking about listing in New York due to the anticipated reclassification of marijuana by federal authorities as a less harmful narcotic. Although the companies haven’t finalized their plans, they are drawn to the U.S. market’s increasingly favorable stance on cannabis and CBD products. Statista estimates that this year’s CBD market might be valued at approximately $6.90 billion. Under the new U.S. regulations, cannabis may be moved from the highly restrictive Schedule 1 of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), which also includes LSD, heroin, and fentanyl, to the less restrictive Schedule 3, placing it…

State Cannabis Regulators Urge Feds to Provide Clarity Regarding Reclassification

The Cannabis Regulators Association (CANNRA) is requesting that the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and Biden Administration offer clarity on how rescheduling cannabis will affect enforcement by the federal government, particularly in legal states. In a public comment to the DEA’s administrator Anne Milgram, CANNRA leaders explained that without federal guidance, territorial and state government agencies would be left guessing and hypothesizing about these dynamics and their possible effects on legal programs regulated by states, and the populations impacted by these programs in various jurisdictions, among other things. CANNRA is an organization that represents hemp and cannabis regulators in more than…

420 with CNW — Curaleaf, Other MSOs Switching to Hemp-Sourced THC

Curaleaf Holdings had decided to step away from hemp. The New York-based cannabis multistate operator initially ran a hemp farm in Lexington, Kentucky, for its CBD product line starting in 2018. According to its annual filings, Curaleaf terminated its lease, stopped all hemp-related manufacturing and wholesale operations in Kentucky by the end of September last year and listed its assets for sale. However, Curaleaf recently reentered the hemp business, following a larger cannabis industry trend for licensed businesses. The company introduced a new range of THC-derived hemp products on June 24, 2024, under The Hemp Co. brand. The hemp-based, shelf-stable…

420 with CNW — Recent Supreme Court Decision Could Impact Marijuana Reclassification

The recent decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to limit the power of federal regulatory agencies has introduced new uncertainty regarding the future of cannabis rescheduling. However, administrative law and policy experts believe that the ambiguity is not expected to hinder the Biden administration’s reclassification process. In a 6-to-3 decision last Friday, the court ruled that courts are no longer obligated to follow federal agencies’ interpretations of statutes when Congress leaves those interpretations unclear. This ruling effectively ends the Chevron doctrine, named after a 1984 judgment. Historically, courts would defer to regulators as the subject matter experts. There is speculation…

Did Congress Inadvertently Legalize Marijuana in 2018?

Congress federally legalized hemp when it approved the 2018 Farm Bill, making the use of hemp as well as its production legal. Legislators who supported the legalization of this industrial crop expected that it would be used for textiles and nonintoxicating supplements such as shelled hemp seeds and CBD oil. What they didn’t realize, however, was that with some tweaking, hemp could also induce highs when consumed. Currently, individuals in different parts of the country can get high on THC derived from hemp without breaking the law. These hemp-based intoxicants are every bit as strong as compounds derived from cannabis…

420 with CNW — Study Links Marijuana Use to Improved Quality, Frequency of Sex

A recent scientific assessment of scholarly studies on human sexuality and cannabis has found that there is a complex link between sex and cannabis use. However, the general consensus is that cannabis tends to increase the frequency, enjoyment and desire for sex. The review, published in the “Psychopharmacology Journal,” suggests that higher amounts of cannabis may impair performance and desire, while smaller doses may be more favorable to sexual fulfillment. The effects also appear to vary based on gender. The study’s authors noted that marijuana can improve intimacy with partners, reduce shame and anxiety, lessen inhibitions and increase sexual pleasure.…

Delaware Starts Prepping for Adult-Use Cannabis Market Launch

Last month, legislators in Delaware approved a measure that would allow medical cannabis licensees in the state to apply for conversion licenses to cultivate and sell recreational marijuana. Governor John Carney is expected to sign the measure in the coming weeks. The recently approved measure was sponsored by Representative Ed Osienski, who revealed that cultivation was the most difficult pathway to use to enter the marijuana industry. This, Osienski explained, was because of the larger investments needed to cover the needed infrastructure, such as ventilation and lighting as well as the need for more time for cultivation. This was why…

420 with CNW — Study Shows Partner Violence Decreases After Marijuana Legalization

A recent study found that the legalization of recreational cannabis significantly reduces intimate partner violence (IPV). The research highlights that legal recreational marijuana affects the link between heavy alcohol consumption and IPV, likely because people are choosing cannabis over alcohol. The study was written by Georgetown University master student Samantha Gene Baldwin, who described the findings as surprising. “Given that cannabis use is an established IPV-risk factor, and that legalization typically leads to increased usage, one might expect RML to elevate IPV rates,” Baldwin explained. “RML may lessen its negative effects on IPV, though, if marijuana takes the place of…
