Cannabis Regulators Respond to Coronavirus Concerns

We’ll continue to update as regulators announce new policies. So far, during the COVID-19 pandemic, cannabis sales are through the roof as consumers stock up in anticipation of supply chain disruption. But, despite this upswing, cannabis companies are bracing for impact. As Cannabis Wire reported this week, a dilemma has hit the nascent industry: to close or not to close? Already, Canopy Growth chose to close nearly two dozen shops in Canada, and we’re tracking how other companies are reacting. But what happens in the case of forced closures? Cannabis regulators will have to weigh tough decisions in the coming days as businesses, from gyms to bowling alleys to bars, are asked to close as part of broader efforts to contain the spread of the virus. (While Canadian consumers can legally order cannabis online, should closures occur, changes are taking place north of the border. On...

New Mexico Now Has More Cannabis Patients Than Colorado
(Arizona, Cannabis, Colorado, Medical Marijuana, Mexico, New Mexico, Research, United States, Dispensaries) New Mexico’s medical cannabis program patient enrollment has surpassed Colorado’s patient enrollment for the first time since its inception. According to data from the New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH), the state has 82,147 medical marijuana patients while Colorado has 81,893, Ultra Health reported. Since Colorado legalized adult-use marijuana in 2014, the state’s medical marijuana program has declined from nearly 115,000 patients to less than 82,000. During the same time period, New Mexico’s medical cannabis patient enrollment increased 667% from 10,708 to over 82,000. In contrast, Arizona’s medical marijuana program has approximately 230,000 patients . A recent NMDOH patient survey performed by Research & Polling Inc. found there is a shortage of marijuana available for patients. In the survey, 55% of New Mexico’s dispensaries said they’re unable to keep pace with the demand for medical marijuana. Furthermore, one in four patients in New Mexico claim they were unable to...

Suspension Of Mexican Senate Puts Cannabis Legalization Schedule In Doubt
(Cannabis, Law, Legalization, Mexico) The report goes on to say The decision casts serious doubt on the feasibility of complying with the April 30 deadline the Supreme Court set for the legalization of cannabis. Senate commissions approved a legalization bill earlier this month, but the document still needs to go through the Senate plenary, the Chamber of Deputies (the lower house) and signed into law by the president. The lower chamber of the Mexican Legislature on March 20 suspended most activities.It could still see modifications or setbacks along the way. There is no specific date in the announcement for when Senate work will be renewed, meaning the postponement is effectively indefinite.

New study from US reveals that vast majority of medical marijuana dispensed has THC levels of up to 15%
(California, Cannabis, CBD, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Medical Marijuana, Mexico, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Products, Recreational, Research, Rhode Island, United States, Vermont, Washington, Websites, THC, Dispensaries, Pharmaceuticals) The European Pharmaceutical review reports….According to new research, more than 90 percent of the legal marijuana products offered in medical dispensaries in the US are much stronger than what clinical studies have shown doctors recommend for chronic pain relief. “We know that high-potency products should not have a place in the medical realm because of the high risk of developing cannabis-use disorders, which are related to exposure to high tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content products,” said the study’s lead author, Dr Alfonso Edgar Romero-Sandoval, associate professor of anaesthesiology at Wake Forest School of Medicine, part of Wake Forest Baptist Health, US. “Several earlier studies showed that levels of up to 5 percent THC – the main psychoactive compound in marijuana that provides pain relief as well as intoxication – were sufficient to reduce chronic pain with minimal side effects.” The goal of this study was to evaluate the advertised THC and cannabidiol (CBD) content of legal...

The 2018 Farm Bill gives the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulatory authority over hemp cultivation at the federal level. In turn, states have the option to maintain primary regulatory authority over the crop cultivated within their borders by submitting a plan to the USDA. This federal and state interplay has resulted in many legislative and regulatory changes at the state level. Indeed, most states have introduced (and adopted) bills that would authorize the commercial production of hemp within their borders. A smaller but growing number of states also regulate the sale of products derived from hemp. In light of these legislative changes, we are presenting a 50-state series analyzing how each jurisdiction treats hemp-...

Most Americans Want Medical Cannabis Dispensaries to Stay Open During Lockdown
(Alcohol, Arizona, California, Cannabis, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Legalization, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Medical Marijuana, Mexico, Michigan, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, United States, Washington, Dispensaries) Most Americans believe that states should not restrict access to legal medical cannabis during “shelter-in-place” measures, according to a new poll . The poll , conducted by YouGov earlier this week, asked nearly 5,400 Americans whether medical marijuana dispensaries should be considered “essential services” or not. Slightly over half (53 percent) of all respondents agreed that access to medical marijuana was essential, and only 26 percent said that dispensaries should not be considered essential. A further 21 percent were undecided on the matter. As is often the case with cannabis-related polls , younger and more liberal respondents were more likely to be in favor of keeping dispensaries open. Between 54 and 59 percent of respondents between the ages of 18 and 54 agreed that medical marijuana is an essential service, but only 47 percent of those over 55 felt the same way. Democrats were also more likely (62 percent) to agree than independents (52 percent) or Republicans (43 percent...

What Is Salvia, and Is the Psychoactive Drug Still Legal?
(California, Events, Georgia, Guam, Law, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, United States, Virginia, West Virginia) If only salvia could speak, maybe we’d know what the hell happened after we smoked it. When people hear the term “salvia,” they may think of a number of things. Some will no doubt be immediately transported back to memorably awful college experiences. Others may fondly recall the popular (if questionably helpful) YouTube tutorials posted by Erik Hoffstad, who once taught us the joys of “Gardening on Salvia.” Unquestionably, there are also those who just remember that one time Miley Cyrus smoked some . To fully understand this plant, however, the first thing to know about Salvia divinorum is that people have been using it for at least hundreds of years. Indeed, in the mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico, Mazatec Indians have relied on Salvia divinorum for centuries. For them, this psychoactive herb from the mint family was given a place of honor at ceremonial events. Though the Mazatec prefer to extract the juice from crushed leaves to consume in a tea, other options for consumption include...

But the shutdowns have prompted perhaps an unexpected question amid the coronavirus chaos: Are medical marijuana operations considered “essential” in this new public arena? For many areas across the U.S., the answer is a resounding “yes.”Over in San Francisco, though, that wasn’t always the case. All seven counties in the Bay Area of California implemented a shelter-in-place order March 16. The order, which is in place until at least April 7, included a list of essential services that could remain open but left room for interpretation regarding other businesses, including...

Indeed, most states have introduced (and adopted) bills that would authorize the commercial production of hemp within their borders. A smaller but growing number of states also regulate the sale of products derived from hemp. In light of these legislative changes, we are presenting a 50-state series analyzing how each jurisdiction treats hemp-...

The Mexican Cartel Drug Trade Is Getting Wrecked by the Coronavirus Crisis
(Canada, Candy, Cannabis, China, Mexico, Products, Recreational, Synthetic, Pharmaceuticals) Drug dealers are about to experience hard times under the coronavirus lockdowns. For starters, Mexican cartels are getting hit in multiple black markets due to restrictions on international travel and trade to prevent the spread of COVID-19. One of those lucrative underground industries is fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid. But since most of the Americas’ illicit fentanyl supplies come from China, that means the trade and travel bans have cut the routes for smuggling fentanyl , too. As of March 5, Mexican authorities announced that “coronavirus had suspended the fentanyl supply chain” to one major cartel because its “partners in China... are unable to deliver the precursors,” wrote Chris Dalby for Business Insider . “In response, the source said the [Jalisco Cartel New Generation, or CJNG] may have to hike its prices and potentially lose clients to other competitors. In 2020, a wide range of criminal groups in Mexico has been contesting for the prized trafficking of fentanyl.”...

What Is Mescaline and What Does Tripping On This Psychedelic Drug Feel Like?
(Alcohol, Cannabis, Law, Mexico, Research, Synthetic) Pop culture ranging from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas to The Matrix references a rare but natural psychedelic known as mescaline. What, exactly, is mescaline, where does it come from, and what does it do to someone who consumes it? Mescaline, or what chemists call 3,4,5-trimethoxyphenethylamine, is an alkaloid that’s commonly found in the peyote cactus , though it’s also found in Peruvian torch, San Pedro, and other cacti, as well. Synthetic, or lab-made mescaline , is also available for research purposes. If you’ve ever taken a trip out into the desert, and your tour guide advised you not to eat random local cacti if you got stuck in a survival situation, this is why: You might end up tripping balls or poisoning yourself for hours on end, under the hot sun while dehydrated, and that’s no good when you need your wits to stay alive. But, if you aren’t stranded out in the middle of Death Valley, what will mescaline do to you? What are the psychedelic plant’s benefits, and what are its...
