Is This Going to Speed Up Legalization in America?
(Alaska, Cannabis, Colorado, Investment, Legalization, Massachusetts, Medical Marijuana, New York, Texas, United States, Washington) If states were to speed up legalization, it would help line the tax coffers. The budget shortfalls that states face in the first quarter of 2020 – and probably the second too – will be massive. A reduction in business activity means less money for the government. One proposal is for states to speed up cannabis legalization in order to fill in the gaps. Without it, states are going to face difficult decisions about which services to cut, people to lay off, and programs to discontinue. Unlike the U.S. federal government, states are required to balance their budgets each year — they cannot simply take out a big loan to cover the lean times. One easy fail safe solution to make up for the shortfall? Speed up cannabis legalization. Seeds that Could Speed Up Legalization Take New York as an example. According to a press release from the state comptroller’s office, the state projects a $4 billion loss in collected taxes for 2020. And that’s as a best-case scenario. The state originally...

The History of Vaping: From Clouds of Inspiration to How We Get High Today
(California, Cannabis, Egypt, Germany, Growing, Hemp, Hookah, India, Lighting, Massachusetts, Oils, Products, Smokeless, Texas, Tobacco, United States, Vaporizers, Vaporizers, THC, Patents) With thick, fragrant wafts of vaporized flowers and oils cascading around us, it’s easy to forget that less than a decade ago, vaping wasn’t a thing. It existed, of course, but it wasn’t popular. In fact, it wasn’t a trend until semi-recently. Setting fire to flowers and inhaling the smoke was always the standard for getting stoned. The vape boom rocked the past decade, however, ultimately changing the way people smoke. For the first time ever, California sold more cannabis concentrates in the form of THC oil found in vape pens than traditional flower, according to Penthouse Magazine . Vape cartridges are, thus, the fastest growing product in the legal weed landscape. In recent years, nicotine-vaping products have also tapped into the zeitgeist. Since 2018, they racked up $5.5 billion in sales, causing controversy by allegedly having great appeal to underage customers. In 2019, a sudden eruption of lung illnesses and even some deaths reportedly linked to vaping ignited a “panic” and...

Doctor Sues the DEA Over a “Secret Law" Blocking Cannabis Research
(Arizona, Cannabis, Facilities, Grower, Growers, Growing, Law, Manufacture, Medical Marijuana, Mississippi, Research, Texas, United States, Cultivation) Attorneys filed suit last week against the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) over an alleged “secret law” that has stalled legitimate medical marijuana research in the US for the past three years. The lawsuit, dated March 25, came from Yetter Coleman, LLP , a Texas-based law firm that represents the Scottsdale Research Institute (SRI). Based in Arizona, SRI is led by Dr. Sue Sisley, a licensed physician who has been investigating medical marijuana as a treatment for cancer and PTSD. Last year, she filed suit against the DEA after the agency failed to review her application for a third-party marijuana growing license under the Obama-era Growers Program. According to the complaint, under the Trump administration, the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) issued its own interpretation of the UN Single Convention treaty and the US Controlled Substances Act that required the DEA to draft new rules for the Growers Program. The proposed...

Out of Any State, Michigan Is Tweeting the Most About Weed During Coronavirus
(California, Cannabis, Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Media, Michigan, Oregon, Recreational, Social Media, Software, Texas, United States, Dispensaries) As cities across the country continue to enact shelter-in-place measures and social distancing guidelines in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, legal weed dispensaries from California to Massachusetts have seen huge lines and skyrocketing sales . But once cannabis users are back home, one state in particular has seen a higher bump in pot posts on social media. According to MLive , a new social media study from the health blog bodynutrition.org found that Michigan residents have posted the most cannabis photos, slang, jokes, and general 420-friendly banter since the coronavirus quarantines started. Researchers used trends software to track geotagged Twitter posts about weed and weed-related terms, and found more than 200,000 tweets from the Wolverine State since March 1st. These included hashtags and usage of phrases like "smoke weed," as well as other sativa-friendly semantics. Michigan’s adult-use cannabis dispensaries didn’t open for business until December of last year , but in the...

Guest Post – Joshua Schmidt: When a rule isn’t a rule?
(Acquisition, Canada, Cannabis, Drug Testing, Hemp, Law, New York, Recreational, Testing, Texas, United States, THC) Joshua Schmidt writes……For something that has been so commonly demonised in popular culture as cannabis, the impact of COVID-19 has reset the thinking on more than one level. Let’s take a look at the treatment of cannabis and cannabis-related crime now that there are bigger issues at play. NBA players won’t be subject to drug testing during the coronavirus-induced season hiatus. [1] Let that sink in for a moment. One of the Big 4 sporting leagues won’t drug test during a league hiatus. Still a banned substance, at least until the World Health Organization (WHO) makes a ruling on cannabis in the near future, and with potential that the league could resume play, exactly what is the thought process around the use of cannabis for athletes? If by some miracle, the NBA season resumes and some form of post-season play occurs; what happens to testing as play starts again? And what are the parameters in which they would be tested? If the season starts again, it is not just regular season...

Texas Hemp law creates haze of confusion: ‘It Changed The Definition Of Marijuana’
(Cannabis, Hemp, Law, Texas, United States, THC) 3/12/20–While bills to decriminalize marijuana failed in the last legislation session, the state’s new hemp law passed unanimously. It was intended to allow farmers to cash in on a new crop, but the unintended effect is a big one. According to Tarrant County Assistant District Attorney Dale Smith, it changed the definition of marijuana by defining legal hemp as the same plant, only with a concentration of less than .3% THC, marijuana’s euphoria inducing chemical.
