420 with CNW — Many Patients with Breast Cancer Use Marijuana Alongside Meds

Over the past couple of years, cannabis has grown increasingly popular as more states pass legislation to allow either medical marijuana or recreational cannabis.

420 with CNW — California Governor Signs Off on CBD Drinks, Smokable Hemp Bill

America’s hemp industry is famously unregulated. Nearly three years after the 2018 Farm Bill legalized the growing, processing, and sale of industrial hemp as well as its derivatives, the sector has become lucrative, attracting numerous sellers and achieving billions of dollars in sales.

California, a pioneer in the hemp and cannabis sectors, is the latest state to pass hemp legislation after Governor Gavin Newsom signed a bill to…
