420 with CNW – Tech Nonprofit Targets Aiding the Expungement of Quarter a Million Marijuana Convictions

Code for America, a nonprofit technology organization, has developed technology which could help to clear the marijuana conviction records of up to 250,000 people across the U.S. The software is currently being used in California and it will be rolled out to other states where expungement laws have been enacted.

Code for America created an application called Clear My Record. This app makes it easy for the authorities to identify the cases that qualify for California’s 2016 law that defines which convictions can be…

420 with CNW – Scientists Find That Chocolate Complicates THC Testing in Marijuana Edibles

Scientists recently discovered that chocolate inexplicably complicates the process through which the potency of marijuana edibles can be tested. This discovery was revealed during the American Chemical Society conference held on Sunday.

David Dawson, the principal investigator, revealed that the THC potency of marijuana edibles can be affected if those products contain chocolate. These findings could make manufacturers, regulators and consumers to rethink…

420 with CNW – The American Bar Association Asks Congress to Pass Legislation Allowing States to Enact Their Own Cannabis Laws

The American Bar Association-ABA passed a resolution on Monday calling on Congress to let states pass and implement their own marijuana laws. The resolution also wants marijuana to be rescheduled or descheduled by the federal government.

This resolution was adopted during this year’s annual general meeting of the ABA held in San Francisco. While the proponents of the resolution waived their time to talk about that resolution, the resolution was passed without any audible opposition to it.

The ABA emphasized that it didn’t favor or disagree with marijuana legalization, but their chief concern was the untenable contradictions between the federal marijuana laws and the marijuana policies of the states that have opted to legalize the drug for medical and/or recreational use.

The members specifically refer to the complications that state-legal marijuana businesses face on a daily basis, such as being targets because of operating in cash alone. The companies also pay very high federal taxes since the tax-deductible expenses that other businesses enjoy aren’t applicable to marijuana businesses.

The association of 411,000 members therefore urged Congress to pass a law that exempts any marijuana cultivation, processing, manufacture, distribution, and use from the Controlled Substances Act as long as such activity complies with state law.

The resolution of ABA also points out that the spending riders and the guidance memos written by the Department of Justice are not enough to address the regulatory uncertainty. For example, the spending riders have to be revisited each year, and it isn’t clear for how long they will keep being approved. A clear example is the uncertainty surrounding the spending rider covering recreational marijuana. The marijuana industry doesn’t know whether the Senate will endorse that DOJ spending rider, so uncertainty remains.

The American Bar Association also wants the federal government to support marijuana research so that states and the federal government make science-based decisions on the drug. ABA points out that while the DEA called for applications from organizations and companies which could provide research-grade marijuana, no action has been taken three years after the applications were submitted.

The resolution indicates that while the body of knowledge about marijuana, such as its medicinal properties, has grown from the time marijuana was placed in Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), no step has been taken to adjust the scheduling of the drug and yet other substances, such as alcohol, have been removed. Consequently, the revision of the scheduling of marijuana is overdue, according to the ABA.

Analysts are convinced that industry players like Chemistree Technology Inc. (CSE: CHM) (OTCQB: CHMJF) and ChineseInvestors.com Inc. (OTCQB: CIIX) fully agree with the resolution passed by the American Bar Association, but they also wonder how long it will take lawmakers to finally act on this matter.

420 with CNW – New Mexico Cannabis Legalization Working Group Schedules First Meeting

The working group created by New Mexico Gov. Michelle Grisham (D) announced on Friday that it would be holding its first public meeting on August 14. During that meeting, several issues connected to plans to legalize recreational marijuana in the state will be discussed.

Individual residents and groups are free to comment either in advance or during the actual meeting on the topics lined up for the day. During that meeting, the Department of Health will address the people present about the medical cannabis program in the state while the Department of Regulation and Licensing will deliver a presentation about the current status of cannabis regulation.

The committee members will then discuss various issues, such as recreational marijuana marketing, the option of creating state-operated marijuana shops, how licensing should be done and whether a marijuana control division should be created by the state.

The website of the working group has a landing page for almost all the items lined up for discussion during this maiden meeting. On those pages, visitors will find the specific goals that the committee has for that area, the questions that the committee plans to answer on that topic, details about how that particular aspect was going to be legalized under the bill which was put before lawmakers, and how other states have legislated on that matter.

At the bottom of each of those pages, online visitors will find a form that they can use to share their opinion on that specific aspect of marijuana legalization.

For example, on the matter of whether the state should directly run a marijuana retail network, the working group posed a question regarding what risks, if any, the state employees will face by participating in what the federal government calls “drug trafficking.” The committee also posed a question on how else a fair distribution of marijuana shops can be ensured if the state isn’t to be involved in retail sales.

Once an item on the list is discussed extensively, the members of the working group will finally take a vote on the matter and move onto the next item on the agenda. The members of the working committee are also free to suggest policy proposals for discussion by the entire group following a method that will be explained during the meeting on August 14.

Another meeting of this committee will be held on August 27 to handle other matters connected to cannabis legalization.

It should be remembered that Gov. Grisham made a campaign promise to legalize recreational marijuana and she formed the working group after a legalization bill failed to pass in the state senate. The findings of the working group will form the basis of a new legalization bill which will be tabled before lawmakers early next year.

Analysts believe that industry players like ChineseInvestors.com Inc. (OTCQB: CIIX) and Earth Science Tech Inc. (OTCQB: ETST) will be hoping that the method of using a working group will result in a legalization bill which is widely acceptable to the lawmakers on different sides of this topic.

420 with CNW – NYC Council Passes Two Cannabis Reform Resolutions

On Tuesday this week, the New York City Council passed two cannabis-related resolutions as part of a package of marijuana laws that the progressive-minded caucus of the chamber wants to see enacted.

One of those resolutions calls on the Administration of Children’s Services (ACS) to adopt a new policy to the effect that finding someone using or in possession of marijuana shouldn’t in itself mean that a child is in danger and should be removed from that person.

Child custody issues constitute one of the most serious yet overlooked consequences of cannabis consumption, even in places where the drug has been legalized for either recreational or medical use.

The City Council’s resolution details how there is a racial disparity in the way marijuana possession arrests are done, and also points out that the ACS doesn’t immediately conclude that a child is at risk of harm just because a parent or caregiver takes alcohol. This same principle should apply in the case of marijuana consumption, the council argues.

The second measure is addressed to the state legislature. It requests the lawmakers to enact legislation mandating the Department of Health in New York State to formulate hospital drugs testing guidelines or regulations for pregnant women and those giving birth. Those regulations should include provisions on informing hospital patients about their rights if matters of drug testing and drug use are to be discussed.

The current practice is that as soon as a pregnant woman tests positive for any drug, including cannabis, the hospital reports this to the Statewide Central Register of Child Abuse and Maltreatment. On the basis of that report, ACS launches an investigation into the matter.

The NYC Council notes in its resolution that while it isn’t clear how hospitals enforce their drug testing policies, people of color and those from impoverished communities seem to be particularly targeted.

Additionally, the resolution notes that there is still limited research regarding the effects of marijuana use during pregnancy. However, even that limited research doesn’t show that cannabis use is on its own a risk factor for serious neonatal problems.

The lack of clarity on the drug testing policies of hospitals means that pregnant women often volunteer information about their drug use not knowing that such information could result in child welfare issues.

Having a clear drug testing policy would encourage women to be free about disclosing their drug use habits since they will not have any fear that child welfare cases will be instituted simply because those women tested positive for marijuana, the councilors reason.

These resolutions show how keen the city council is to see marijuana reform implemented. Earlier in April, they also passed a resolution to put an end to pre-employment marijuana testing. This takes effect next year.

It remains to be seen whether the state legislature will act upon the well-intentioned resolution on hospital drug testing, but pundits believe that the entire cannabis industry, including industry players like ChineseInvestors.com Inc. (OTCQB: CIIX) and Chemistree Technology Inc. (CSE: CHM) (OTCQB: CHMJF), will be rooting for a positive outcome so that women stop being unfairly victimized for using cannabis.

420 with CNW – New Jersey Starts Accepting Applications from Additional Marijuana Businesses

On Monday, the Department of Health in New Jersey announced that interested parties could start submitting their applications to grow and sell marijuana. Both nonprofit and for-profit entities are eligible to apply during this round of licensing.

Those planning to be growers or sellers of medical marijuana have until August 21 to submit their applications. New Jersey plans to license five additional cultivation facilities as well as 15 medical marijuana dispensaries. 4 licenses will also be granted to “verticals.” These are entities which are vertically integrated (they can cultivate, process and sell marijuana).

Entities that apply for the licenses will pay an application fee of $20,000 and those whose applications aren’t successful will get back $18,000 of that application fee.

All the people involved in the companies that apply have been notified that they will be subjected to a criminal background check. These people include directors, owners, board members and employees.

The interested companies are also expected to provide proof that the local authorities in the area where they wish to operate have given them approval to operate a marijuana business in that area.

Another requirement is that the companies must submit their security plans as well as an environment impact statement as they send in their applications.

All the companies that apply are expected to show that they have sufficient experience in the particular aspect of the industry for which they would like to be licensed. For example, aspiring growers must show they have experience cultivating medical marijuana. Quality assurance and quality control are important, so applicants are also required to submit their plans for these aspects of their operations.

While the state hasn’t imposed any minimum level of capitalization that aspiring industry participants should have, the applicants are nonetheless expected to provide proof that they have sufficient funding for the operations they wish to undertake. Funds should be available for the activities shown in their plans.

The state has also organized a pre-application webinar for all those interested on August 2. The Department of Health has revealed that people can submit the questions that they would like the department to address during that webinar. While it may not be practically possible to respond to each of the questions submitted, the state will address the issues that cut across the queries sent in.

This medical marijuana program expansion comes at a time when plans to legalize adult-use pot failed after advocates failed to secure ample support in the state senate and a vote on the matter was called off at the last minute. Analysts expect that the cannabis industry, including entities like Choom Holdings Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTCQB: CHOOF) and ChineseInvestors.com Inc. (OTCQB: CIIX), will take comfort in the fact that with the expansion of the medical cannabis program, patients will get solutions to many of the issues that they have been facing, such as lack of variety in the products available.

420 with CNW – Colorado Governor Unveils Online Tool to Track Cannabis Achievements

Colorado Gov. Jared Polis (D) launched an online tool on Monday that will enable members of the public to keep track of what the state government is doing to attain its goals, which include taking the marijuana industry to greater heights.

The goals have been categorized into six groups. These are marijuana, education and workforce, criminal justice, tax reform and economic development, and energy and renewables.

The online tool, called “the governor’s dashboard,” outlines targets or priorities for each of those six areas. For example, under the cannabis category, the governor undertakes to operationalize the home delivery of marijuana in accordance with the law he signed last month. He also promises to see marijuana companies listed on stock exchanges, as well as working for a 20 percent increase in the number of financial institutions serving cannabis companies. Gov. Polis also wants to establish the state as a national leader in research, production and processing of industrial hemp.

Speaking at the launch of the dashboard, the governor revealed that he is happy to avail that platform since it will ensure accountability and transparency on all matters affecting Coloradans.

The agriculture department will do a lot to facilitate the attainment of the goals on hemp. A three-year development plan for this sector shows that the governor wants to see the indoor production of hemp increase to 10 million square feet from the current 7.67 million square feet. The plan also states that outdoor cultivation should increase to more than 60,000 square feet from the current 21,000 square feet.

To attain these lofty goals, the state plans to submit a plan for the regulation of hemp to the U.S. Department of Agriculture for approval so that large scale production can begin. The state will also support farmer-owned cooperatives in addition to other interventions to encourage industrial hemp value addition.

Polis has always believed that the marijuana industry is yet to reach its full economic potential in Colorado and he has done what he can to promote the industry. For example, he signed bills to allow social consumption sites and regulate home delivery of marijuana products.

Last month, the state government released a report showing that more than a billion dollars had so far been collected by the state as cannabis taxes, fees and other collections. It is therefore expected that the working group formed to steer the state towards attaining all the goals listed on the dashboard will not have any excuses for not doing the work assigned to them.

Industry analysts can only guess how far players like ChineseInvestors.com Inc. (OTCQB: CIIX) and Chemistree Technology Inc. (CSE: CHM) (OTCQB: CHMJF) would be if all the markets they operated in were as proactive as Colorado.

420 with CNW – More Pregnant Women Using Marijuana to Treat Morning Sickness

It has been widely reported that marijuana can treat morning sickness, so it isn’t surprising that more women are resorting to cannabis to ease the symptoms of morning sickness during the initial stages of pregnancy. Researchers have found that the number of pregnant women turning to cannabis is higher than it ever was.

The study published in the JAMA journal found that the number of women who use cannabis to deal with morning sickness has more than doubled from just 3.4 percent in 2002 to 7 percent in 2017.

These findings were obtained after analyzing the data collected during the National Survey on Drug Use and Health. The researchers specifically considered the data provided by 4,400 pregnant women as well as 133,900 women who weren’t pregnant.

The study participants had responded to questions regarding their pregnancy status and other questions about their cannabis use habits, if they used cannabis.

This study reveals that women use marijuana for various reasons, both medicinal and recreational. More specifically, the number of women who used marijuana daily or almost daily grew from 0.9 percent to about 3.4 percent.

Notably, the number of women who used marijuana during their first trimester of pregnancy shot up from 1.9 percent to 5.3 percent while those who used the substance during their second trimester rose to 2.5 percent from 0.6 percent in 2002. A similar increase was seen regarding marijuana use during the third trimester (a growth from 0.5 percent to 2.5 percent in 2017).

The researchers noted that while lots of women are turning to cannabis during pregnancy, only a small fraction of those women did so after getting a recommendation from a doctor.

The study also revealed that doctors are uncomfortable recommending marijuana for pregnant women in states where medical marijuana is legal. This reluctance is largely due to the shortage of research on the effects of prenatal marijuana exposure.

In fact, NIDA (the National Institute on Drug Abuse) says the use of marijuana during the first and second trimester of pregnancy has been linked to low birth weight and length, as well as other developmental problems.

The study’s authors emphasized that there is an urgent need to screen all pregnant women for marijuana use and intervene appropriately when risks are detected. The researchers also called for more research to be done to document the effects of marijuana use during pregnancy so that decisions can be made using concrete information on the subject rather than simply asking women to err on the side of caution and abstain.

Analysts think that the cannabis industry, including participants like Choom Holdings Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTCQB: CHOOF) and ChineseInvestors.com Inc. (OTCQB: CIIX), agrees with the researchers on the matter of research-based recommendations regarding cannabis use by different demographics.

420 with CNW – Oregon Legislature Approves Marijuana Criminal Record Expungement

The legislature in Oregon has voted to approve a law which will see the marijuana convictions of tens of thousands of Oregonians expunged so that those individuals can have a better chance at finding jobs, getting an education and having access to housing.

Senate Bill 420 seeks to clear all marijuana convictions which are no longer crimes from the time marijuana was legalized in the state in 2014. This means people who were prosecuted and convicted prior to 2014 can have their slate wiped clean.

This bill was initially approved by a 25-4 vote by the Senate in April. However, the bill was modified when it was taken to the Assembly, so the modifications were brought back for approval by the Senate. The State Senate repassed the bill with a similar 25-4 vote. What is now left is Gov. Kate Brown’s signature so that the bill becomes law.

It isn’t immediately clear how many people are eligible to have their criminal record wiped. This is because in the past, court records didn’t reflect the specific controlled substance that an accused person was charged with.

However, estimates put the number of people who were convicted for marijuana possession at about 20,000-75,000 individuals.

Once this bill becomes law, anyone who was convicted for a marijuana crime that is no longer in the law books can fill out a form asking to have their conviction expunged.

Sen. Lew Frederick (D-Portland) supported the bill and says it was long overdue since marijuana convictions follow someone throughout their life and make it hard for that person to get housing, find a job or get an education.

In a related development, the Oregon House also passed a bill granting the state governor authority to negotiate agreements with other states for the purpose of exporting Oregon’s excess marijuana as soon as the federal government tolerates or legalizes interstate marijuana commerce. This bill was passed on the same day (Tuesday, June 11) that the expungement bill was passed.

Supporters of Senate Bill 582 say that Oregon is being forward looking by passing enabling laws in preparation for federal reform of cannabis policies. Some even said that this bill isn’t an endorsement of the cannabis industry, but rather provides support for the business community since exporting marijuana would create more jobs and bring revenue into Oregon from the states with which it is trading.

It should be remembered that Oregon has a massive surplus of marijuana, and some people say about six years are needed to consume this excess if current demand levels are maintained.

However, opponents of SB 582 say that the bill is of no consequence since it is akin to hiring a financial advisor simply because you expect that you will soon win the lottery.

Analysts wonder what cannabis industry players like Choom Holdings Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTCQB: CHOOF) and ChineseInvestors.com Inc. (OTCQB: CIIX) have to say about the export bill passed by Oregon’s Senate.

420 with CNW – Top 4 Documentaries That Will Teach You About Marijuana

One of the best ways to learn about any subject of interest is by seeking out materials, such as documentaries, sitcoms, movies and other shows. This article summarizes some of the most acclaimed documentaries which will help you to delve into the different aspects (on both sides of the divide) of the cannabis industry.

Documentary #1: Weed the People (2018)

You are likely to watch this documentary with rapt attention for the entire 97 minutes that it runs. The documentary will evoke your emotions and overwhelm you as you follow the story of a group of parents and their kids suffering from cancer. You will feel the frustration of these parents as the pace at which cannabis laws change is too slow at this time when lives are at stake. You will experience the hope and relief as the parents resolve to break the law and try cannabis treatments for their kids, and you will experience the elation that the parents feel when cannabis treatments produce visible changes in the very sick kids.

Documentary #2: 420: The Documentary (2013)

In brief, 420: The Documentary primarily tells the story of how negative propaganda was used to malign marijuana, thereby resulting in the criminalization of a plant which would have benefited lots of people.

In this documentary, you will see footage from a lot of 420 civil disobedience events from around the world, and you will follow the stories of young people who had to endure prison (and even gunshots) because of their desire to consume marijuana.

There are testimonies of law enforcement officers who now regret taking part in enforcing the misguided anti-marijuana laws. Watch this documentary and learn how propaganda warped people’s views about cannabis.

Documentary #3: American Drug War 2: Cannabis Destiny (2013)

This documentary clearly brings out the fact that the biggest victims of the war on drugs are kids. The documentary follows a 2-year old kid during his battle with brain cancer. This little child is subjected to everything that conventional medicine has to offer from surgery to chemo and radiation. Nothing helps, and the parents are told to expect the worst.

Out of desperation, the parents take matters into their own hands and start researching alternative treatments for cancer. As luck would have it, they learn about an ancient treatment made from marijuana and they start injecting this concoction into the feeding tube of their son without letting the doctors in on their secret. The doctors are amazed by the “miraculous” transformation in the condition of the boy. This documentary will open your eyes to the therapeutic benefits of cannabis.

Documentary #4: Lynching Charlie Lynch (2011)

If you can now walk into a medical cannabis dispensary and buy anything you need for you symptoms, look up at the heavens and thank people like Charlie Lynch for taking the heat and pioneering medical cannabis treatments in our modern world.

The documentary shows what happened from 2006 when Charlie Lynch opened his medical cannabis dispensary in California. He followed all legal requirements of the state and was even admitted to the chamber of commerce.

However, the DEA didn’t give a hoot about all the steps he went through to abide by the existing state laws, and they raided his dispensary on numerous occasions. Eventually, he was arrested on several charges including selling marijuana to minors. In the blink of an eye, this highly respected member of the medical community acquired the label of a drug dealer. Watch this documentary and learn the hell that the early believers in medical cannabis went through.

The four documentaries above are presented in no particular order of precedence, and each will add something to your understanding of this often-polarizing subject of marijuana. Do you think any pivotal documentary was omitted? ChineseInvestors.com Inc. (OTCQB: CIIX) and Chemistree Technology Inc. (CSE: CHM) (OTCQB: CHMJF) hope that such documentaries will tell the true story of marijuana and people can form their own opinions instead of relying on the untruths which are often spread far and wide about cannabis.
