420 with CNW — GOP-Led Congressional Bill Seeks to Reform Gun Ownership Rules for Medical Marijuana Users

The first draft of the marijuana legalization bill for the 118th House meeting has been filed by Republican House legislators, and it calls for allowing medical marijuana patients to buy and own guns. The legislation, which looks to be similar to a bill that was initially submitted in 2019 but did not move, was introduced by Rep. Alex Mooney (R-WV). The cochair of the Congressional Marijuana Caucus, Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL) along with Thomas Massie (R-KY) are cosponsors of the measure. The bill's entire text is not yet available, although it has the same short name as Mooney's Second Amendment Protection Act from…

420 with CNW — DC Lawsuit May Set New Marijuana Smell Precedent

Nearly every state with a legal marijuana market has passed an outright ban on the public consumption of cannabis. Both medical marijuana patients and recreational users are only allowed to use cannabis within the confines of their homes, and each state has policies that require consumers to use their cannabis product privately and away from the eyes of the public. Unfortunately, marijuana has an extremely thick and potent smell that tends to linger in spots without proper ventilation and can be recognized some distance away from the smoker. A Washington, DC, woman whose downstairs neighbor used legal cannabis finally got…

420 with CNW — Flooding, High Winds Ravage Marijuana Operations in California

The devastating storms wreaking havoc on California have had a wide-ranging negative impact on cannabis businesses, disrupting operations and perhaps even supplies. In a last-ditch effort to limit the damage, some cannabis companies temporarily shut down business and fortified their facilities. Several operators have been unable to reach their operations due to road closures and hazardous conditions, while numerous power outages have halted production and exposed plants to contaminants, such as mold. This is the most recent climate disaster to hit the state marijuana industry, following a heat wave in September and wildfire season several years earlier. Workers cannot access…

420 with CNW — Cannabis Companies Overtake Advocacy Groups as Leading Funders of Reform Efforts

For years, advocacy groups have largely been responsible for pushing and funding cannabis reform efforts across the country. Such groups have traditionally funded reform initiatives to collect signatures and eventually get cannabis initiatives on the ballot, especially when the industry was in its infancy. However, data from November’s election shows that cannabis companies have swiftly overtaken advocacy groups in the funding of marijuana reform efforts in America. Campaign finance records show that the cannabis industry essentially funded all five cannabis legalization initiatives that were on the ballot in last year’s midterm elections. Campaigns to legalize adult-use cannabis in Missouri, Maryland,…

420 with CNW — Federally Funded Research Finds AUD Is Lower in States Where Cannabis is Legal

Research from the University of Colorado, which was recently published in the publication “Psychological Medicine,” found that recreational decriminalization was linked to increased marijuana use and reduced alcohol use disorder (AUD) symptoms but wasn't linked to other maladaptations. The researchers advised, nevertheless, that this information is difficult to assess and deserves exploratory research in future studies. Although their results show that marijuana consumption is not risky, the researchers could not pinpoint major variations in these bad consequences as effects of legalizing marijuana. They found that inasmuch as there was a negligible difference in average alcohol intake, individuals living in areas where cannabis was legal seemed more unlikely to…

420 with CNW — Survey Finds One in Five People Abstaining from Alcohol Are Using Cannabis to Beat ‘Dry January’

A new survey has found that one in five individuals who are not drinking alcohol this January have switched to marijuana as an alternative. The survey found that while 33% of those on a month-long break from alcohol weren’t replacing it with anything, 21% were opting for marijuana and CBD products to get through the month. Cannabinoids and cannabis were the most common alternative, with the remaining opting for nonalcoholic beverages, including kombucha, soda and seltzer. The survey also found that young people were more likely to consume marijuana over alcohol, with 34% of those aged 21 to 24 consuming…

According to a recent study published by the American Medical Association, approximately one-third of people with chronic pain use weed as a treatment option, with the majority of that group using it to replace other pain drugs, including opioids. The new study, published in the “Journal of the American Medical Association Substance Use and Addiction,” adds to the plethora of previous works affirming that cannabis can be used to treat pain effectively and as an alternative to some pharmaceuticals. Researchers from Johns Hopkins University and the University of Michigan conducted the study, using information from 1,724 adults of ages 18 and…

420 with CNW — New Report Shows Individuals with Previous Cannabis Convictions Receive Tougher Sentences

A recently published report shows that individuals with prior cannabis convictions receive tougher prison sentences at the federal level.  The report, published by the United States Sentencing Commission, calls attention to the long-term consequences of marijuana convictions with regard to sentencing at the federal level. It also shows how many defendants have faced lengthier sentences due to state-level cannabis possession offenses, even after their states decriminalized or legalized marijuana. Earlier in October, the agency announced that it would be amending its guidelines to change how cannabis possession convictions affected an individual’s criminal history calculation in sentencing rulings. Its latest report…

420 with CNW — What Tourists Should Know About Marijuana Consumption in Thailand

Since the government delisted specific marijuana plant parts as narcotics last year, cannabis cafés and dispensaries have become more prevalent in Thailand. However, ongoing debates and conflicting legislative changes over what activities should be legal have led to the emergence of what has come to be known as a “marijuana Wild West,” which could put tourists on the wrong side of the law. Independent marijuana activist Kitty Chopaka claims that following legalization, nobody is entirely certain if they have the right information. However, Mandel Menachem, of the weed information hub High, asserts that tourists have nothing to be afraid of…
