420 with CNW – What the World Can Learn from the Dutch about Cannabis

Debate about cannabis has taken center-stage across the world after Canada took the bold decision to legalize recreational marijuana on October 17 this year. As people observe events in Canada, the true lessons about marijuana may lie in Europe, the Netherlands in particular. Several lessons are plain to see for those who are willing to observe how the Dutch have handled the issue of cannabis.

Neutral Observation is Important

While Nixon’s government declared all-out war on marijuana and other psychoactive substances, the Dutch opted for another approach. They decided to neither outlaw nor legalize cannabis. They “tolerated” it and observed what it would do to its users and others involved in the “industry”. That observation led the authorities to conclude that marijuana didn’t pose a serious-enough public safety risk to warrant the allocation of law enforcement resources to fight it.

Lesson number one? First observe a substance you are interested in before you make any policy decisions about it. You will rarely go wrong if you take this approach.

Tolerance Disarms Counterculture

Every community will have a group of people that will want to identify with what is illegal. The hippies are an example of a counterculture movement that swept across the U.S. decades ago. The youth are another section of the community that will be drawn to anything illegal “just for just”.

Counterculture has the irresistible “cool factor” attached to it, and declaring a substance illegal instantly gives it a cool factor. See how the U.S. FDA is having sleepless nights due to the explosion in the use of electronic cigarettes by minors.

The Dutch decided to tolerate cannabis, so it was no longer a substance of choice for those who wanted to rebel against society. It wasn’t cool to light a joint. That provides cannabis lesson number two for the world.

Tolerance Limits Criminal Involvement

The Dutch don’t have a huge cannabis black market to gobble up law enforcement resources because “coffee shops” openly sell marijuana to their clients. The government controls how much stock each establishment can have, and it imposes taxes on each gram of cannabis sold.

Law enforcement just steps in once in a while to confirm that the sellers aren’t breaking any of the rules regulating the sale of cannabis. Why would anyone buy from the black market when the same product can be procured openly? Lesson three, criminalizing cannabis will only magnify law enforcement headaches without stopping the criminal enterprises involved.

Science Prevails Where Legalization Occurs

Is cannabis legal in the Netherlands? No. Is it illegal? The answer again is in the negative. Cannabis is somewhere between legal and illegal, it is tolerated. This kind of legal regime has made it hard for the scientific community to study cannabis in the Netherlands. Consequently, the country has very little to show for all its decades of cannabis tolerance. Countries like Canada that legalized medical marijuana may have more knowledge about the plant than the Netherlands where it has been available for decades.

Lesson four? Legalization is the only way through which the scientific community can devote the immense resources needed to conduct studies about cannabis. This fourth lesson, along with the other lessons, may be why companies like ChineseInvestors.com (OTCQB: CIIX) and Choom Holdings Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTCQB: CHOOF) would like to see different jurisdictions enacting laws to regulate the cannabis industry so that it grows in a responsible way instead of letting it thrive underground.

420 with CNW – Using Your Credit Card to Buy Pot in Canada Could Affect Your US Admissibility

Canadians who are queuing to buy recreational marijuana may be unwittingly making it harder to be allowed to travel to the U.S. if the federal government in America doesn’t soften its hard stance on the marijuana industry.

This concern takes on greater importance given that federal agents at entry points have the leeway to perform any background check necessary before admitting someone into the country. Those background checks can include looking into how someone has been using his or her credit cards.

People who have bought cannabis using their credit cards therefore face the risk of being denied entry into the U.S. since the authorities there may view them as individuals who are connected to an illegal industry (even if marijuana is legal in Canada for both medical and recreational use).

The possibility of having your credit card history reviewed may increase in case the CBP (Customs and Border Protection) agents ask a traveler about cannabis and they have reason to suspect that the person isn’t being truthful in his or her responses.

Canadians shouldn’t imagine that the sheer numbers of people traveling across the border to the South is so high that it may be practically impossible for the border agents to look at everyone’s credit card history. It is possible, and you may be that one person who is singled out for such a background check.

The Canadian province of Ontario currently only allows residents to use their MasterCard or Visa cards to buy recreational cannabis online. This means that the people in this province are at a higher risk of being in the crosshairs of the American border agents if credit card purchases are ever looked into before one is allowed to cross into the U.S.

Don’t rely on the words of comfort coming from the different tech giants like Google, Amazon and Microsoft saying that they will protect the data of Canadians. The Patriot Act can be invoked to compel those companies to release any information that the US government requires in its bid to keep the homeland secure.

Over time, the position of the US is likely to evolve in order to accommodate its neighbor since keeping all Canadians involved in the cannabis industry as workers, investors or consumers out of the country may end up hurting the US. Until that time comes, one should use his or her credit card for making marijuana purchases only when it is unavoidable. Even Americans who cross into Canada and buy cannabis using their credit cards may be affected later on even if the border agents cannot stop them from returning home.

The fears resulting from differences in the laws governing marijuana in different jurisdictions also give cannabis companies like ChineseInvestors.com (OTCQB: CIIX) and FinCanna Capital Corp. (CSE: CALI) (OTCQB: FNNZF) major headaches that they would wish to see end sooner rather than later.

420 with CNW – Research Finds That Cannabis Helps Crohn’s Disease Sufferers

A team of Israeli researchers has confirmed that cannabis oil can improve the symptoms caused by Crohn’s disease. The researchers made their findings public at the 2018 UEG Week (United European Gastroenterology) that has just ended in Vienna. The event was held from October 20-24.

The lead researcher of the randomized, placebo-controlled study was Dr. Timna Naftali. He revealed at the UEG Week that their study was the very first to investigate the impact of cannabis on Crohn’s disease.

The researchers studied 46 individuals who were divided into two groups during the study. One group was given cannabis oil while the second group was given a placebo. After 8 weeks, the researchers found that 65 percent of the patients who received the cannabis oil had clinical remission of their symptoms while only 35 percent of those who got the placebo had a remission.

The scientists used tools that were standard practice for monitoring and recording how the clinical symptoms were responding during the trial period. Gut inflammation was monitored using endoscopy. Stool and blood samples were also tested for inflammatory markers during the study.

The researchers were surprised to discover that inflammation in the gut of the study participants didn’t change despite an improvement in the symptoms suffered by the individuals.

This finding disproved the long-held belief that patients improved because cannabis combated the inflammation in their gastrointestinal tract. The cannabis oil used in the study contained 15 percent CBD and 4 percent THC.

The researchers concluded that cannabis oil can now start being used as a therapy to temporarily provide relief from Crohn’s disease symptoms since it doesn’t cure the condition. Cannabis oil may be used alongside or as an alternative to the current Crohn’s disease management therapies.

The Israeli researchers plan to conduct other studies on how cannabis can be used to treat bowel inflammatory disease and other GIT diseases.

It should be remembered that the World Health Organization (WHO) is going to hold an expert meeting in November to review the classification of marijuana. The U.S. FDA also called for public comments about cannabis (its medicinal value, addiction and harm potential etc.). The findings coming in from Israel can help boost the body of evidence presented to make the case for de-scheduling marijuana as a substance which doesn’t have any therapeutic use. Several countries around the world, including Canada, Lithuania, the UK, Australia, Germany, Denmark and dozens more have legalized medical cannabis.

That list of countries should provide ample proof that cannabis has medicinal effects for a variety of conditions since each country which legalizes cannabis for medical purposes creates a list of qualifying health conditions for which patients can get a prescription or card allowing them to obtain cannabis or its products.

Cannabis industry players like ChineseInvestors.com (OTCQB: CIIX) and Choom Holdings Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTCQB: CHOOF) must be wondering why it has taken so long for all countries to recognize the nearly endless benefits of cannabis.

420 with CNW – U.S. Customs Now Says Canadian Cannabis Industry Workers Can Enter the U.S.

The cloud of uncertainty in the minds of Canadians working in the legal marijuana industry may have lifted a little after the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Administration (CBP) put up an update on its website stating that cannabis industry workers may be “generally” admissible into the U.S. in case their travel isn’t connected to their work.

This clarification comes several weeks after CBP issued a press release in which it suggested that anyone involved in the cannabis industry would not be allowed to cross into the U.S. That statement left marijuana industry workers contemplating an end to simple things like fulfilling the dreams of their kids by visiting Disneyland or even escaping the harsh Canadian winter by seeking out warmer locations across the border to the south.

The new statement clarified that any person involved in the Canadian cannabis industry may be denied entry in case such a person is coming to the U.S. on matters that are related to their work in the cannabis industry. Legalization in Canada doesn’t alter the prohibition of marijuana by U.S. federal law, the statement added.

However, the CBP statement is silent on what the fate of people who admit that they consume cannabis will be at entry points.

What the statement mentions directly is that those who have been convicted for violating U.S. or other countries’ drugs laws will not be allowed into the U.S.

Legal experts agree that the recent statement by CBP provides a more reasonable approach to handling the matter of Canadian cannabis industry workers who wish to travel to the U.S. However, those experts also point out that several grey areas still exist.

For instance, it wasn’t clear how the border authorities will determine which activities are connected to the industry and those that aren’t. Is traveling to attend a marijuana conference in the U.S. outlawed?

Lawyers who specialize in cross-border matters also think that Customs and Border Protection worded their statement cleverly in order to give their agents wiggle room when determining whether to allow someone into the country or not.

It is expected that the position of the U.S. border authorities will keep evolving in the coming weeks and months as the kinks in their current policy get ironed out. In the meantime, Canadians are advised to be mindful about the existing U.S. laws in order to avoid being found in breach of those laws while traveling to or while in the U.S.

ChineseInvestors.com, Inc. (OTCQB: CIIX) and Choom Holdings, Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTCQB: CHOOF) must be equally concerned about the grey areas or contradictions in the cannabis laws at different jurisdictional levels.

420 with CNW – White House Drug Office Promises Objective Marijuana Study

The news reports more than a month ago to the effect that the White House Drug Office had asked 14 federal agencies as well as the DEA to collect and submit data showing the negative effects of marijuana legalization in different states has attracted a backlash which has forced a senior official from the Drug Office to reassure those concerned that the marijuana policy panel will not be subjective as it looks into the impact of cannabis decriminalization in several states across the country.

This clarification was revealed by Senator Michael Bennet from Colorado, one of the first states to decriminalize pot. Senator Bennet disclosed that he had contacted James Carroll (deputy director White House Drug Office) about concerns regarding the attempts to spread negative propaganda against marijuana.

Media reports had suggested that a secret committee had been established to gather data which could be used to portray marijuana as a “national threat” as a way of pushing back against its growing popularity and the wave of decriminalization which is sweeping across the country.

James Carroll clarified that the committee set up would conduct a dispassionate review of cannabis without any preconceived conclusions.

Senator Bennet reaffirmed that the data-driven decisions that were made in Colorado would not be watered down by any propaganda by the feds.

It is only fitting that Colorado takes the lead in calling out any force that is trying to smear marijuana since the state was one of the first two to decriminalize marijuana.

This news comes at a time when contradictions are emerging about how different law enforcement agencies regard cannabis.

For example, LA International Airport issued a press release announcing that it would allow travelers to pass through the airport with marijuana.

However, such people would have to run the gauntlet of TSA since all checkpoints are the jurisdiction of the federal agency. TSA revealed it would refer any matters of cannabis to local law enforcement who are at liberty to decide what to do about the situation. Passengers could be delayed or even miss their flight while these institutions engage in this ping pong.

Another scenario has to do with how Customs and Border Protection regards participants in the legal pot industry. The feds see them as drug traffickers while the states or countries from which they originate treat them as a legitimate industry. This difference of opinion leaves individuals uncertain about what will come next.

It is therefore hoped that the U.S. federal government will review its position and make a decision that harmonizes how marijuana is regarded across the nation. ChineseInvestors.com (OTCQB: CIIX) and Choom Holdings Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTCQB: CHOOF) must be waiting with bated breath for the day when marijuana will be regulated by a uniform set of laws across the U.S.

420 with CNW – Michigan Legislators Set to Approve Medical Cannabis Home Delivery

The Board of Medical Marihuana Regulation in Michigan is considering allowing provisioning centers (medical marijuana dispensaries) to make home deliveries of medical cannabis to patients who request that service.

A public hearing on the matter was conducted on September 17 to gather views that may form part of the permanent marijuana regulations for the state.

Michigan has been operating under emergency rules since the start of the year. The permanent rules will replace those emergency rules.

In the proposed law, provisioning centers will be allowed to deliver cannabis to the registered home address of a maximum of three medical cannabis card holders each day. The patient must sign for the delivery before receiving it.

Medical cannabis provisioning centers must submit their detailed plans explaining how they intend to conduct the home deliveries. The regulators will review those plans to ensure that they conform with the state’s requirements before that dispensary is granted a license to start making home deliveries.

Medical marijuana dispensaries will have to install tracking systems in the delivery vans so that the location of those vans can be known throughout the delivery run.

Furthermore, the quantity of medical marijuana that any delivery person can take to patients each day will be capped at 2.5 pounds, while the monthly limit for each delivery worker is 10 pounds.

It isn’t clear how those limits were arrived at, or how feasible they are. The only available information on the matter is that California has similar restrictions and the home delivery of medical cannabis is booming.

The state regulators also propose that dispensaries keep detailed logs of all home deliveries of medical marijuana. Those delivery details will be uploaded to a state-wide monitoring system.

The proposals have been welcomed by advocacy groups and patients, because patients who cannot drive or get out of a car will receive medical cannabis in the comfort of their homes.

Some patients also live far from a provisioning center. Such situations may have arisen because the local authorities declined to have a medical cannabis provisioning center in their jurisdiction.

Home deliveries are also suitable for medical cannabis card holders who may be uncomfortable about being seen going into a medical cannabis dispensary.

The authorities seem to have considered this matter for a while, and the provisions of the permanent regulations will smooth the operation of the medical cannabis industry. Any kinks that develop will hopefully be resolved along the way. Canopy Rivers Inc. (TSX.V: RIV) and ChineseInvestors.com (OTCQB: CIIX) can only hope that all jurisdictions do everything that they can to make it possible for patients to receive medical cannabis without leaving any loopholes that can lead to the misuse of medical marijuana.

420 with CNW – Study Suggests CBD Could Treat Psychosis

Researchers from King’s College London have found that a cannabis extract, cannabidiol (CBD), can reset the brain so that the abnormal reactions characteristic of psychosis is reduced.

Their findings were published in the JAMA Psychiatry journal. The researchers were led by Sagnik Bhattacharyya, PhD., who works at King’s College London at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience.

The team recruited 33 young people who hadn’t been diagnosed with psychosis but displayed the classic symptoms of that condition. Nineteen control subjects were also included in the study.

These study subjects were divided into three groups. One group had the control subjects while another group had 16 youths showing symptoms of psychosis. The third group had 17 psychotic youths.

The brain activity of all the study subjects was studied and recorded using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Then, one group of the psychotic subjects was given a single dose of CBD while the other group received a placebo.

The three groups were then given a memory test designed to activate the same areas of the brain that fire abnormally in psychotic individuals. MRI scans were done as the study subjects completed the memory test.

The scan results revealed that the psychotic youth who were given CBD showed a reduced level of abnormal brain activity in the target brain regions. This reduction of abnormal activity brought the performance of those subjects to almost the same level as the level of the control subjects.

The researchers welcomed these results for several reasons. First, CBD seemed to be well tolerated by all the subjects who received it. This is unlike contemporary medicines, which aren’t tolerated by some patients.

Secondly, CBD showed promise as a substance that can be used to treat young people who are at risk of developing psychosis. Currently, there is no medication that can be used for such people, because what is available is too strong and causes several adverse reactions.

Interestingly, an earlier study at the same university established that CBD counteracts the effects of THC (tetrahydrocannabidol), the cannabis ingredient which can cause psychosis.

The King’s College London researchers now plan to conduct a larger clinical trial that will include several trial centers. This follow-up study will provide more concrete answers about the possibility and mechanism of treating psychosis with cannabis extracts.

Such studies that unearth the promising cannabis cures are encouraging to companies like ChineseInvestors.com (OTCQB: CIIX) and SinglePoint, Inc. (OTCQB: SING), which are involved in the young cannabis industry.

ChineseInvestors.com, Inc. (CIIX) CEO Discusses the Company’s Future on MoneyTV

Warren Wang, founder and CEO of ChineseInvestors.com (OTCQB: CIIX), was recently interviewed on MoneyTV with Donald Baillargeon. The company, in addition to being a leader in education products and services for the Chinese-speaking community in North America and elsewhere, has recognized and seized the opportunity in the growing cannabis industry. With a focus on cryptocurrency and financial education, as well as a new private company spinoff of its hemp assets, CIIX is a company to watch. Wang spoke of upcoming changes in both the cannabis and cryptocurrency markets.

Anticipating the potential revenue of the company’s hemp assets for the 2018-2019 fiscal year in the range of $1 million to $4 million, Wang spoke of the spinoff of CIIX’s hemp assets into a private company as a positive and exciting move. The American cannabis market continues to grow, though still divided, and the newly formed spinoff company is set to achieve strong revenues with the legalization of cannabis in Canada this summer. CIIX’s hemp products can be found on…
