420 with CNW – California Plans to Issue Marijuana Organic Certification to Boost Profits

Federal prohibition has been a thorn in cannabis’ side for a long time. And even as tens of states move to legalize recreational and medical marijuana, it remains illegal at the federal level and this has held the industry back in many ways. For instance, state-legal cannabis cannot be considered ‘organic’, a title bestowed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, even if the growers maintained the purported ‘organic’ standards while growing the crop. However, regulators in California, the largest legal cannabis market in the world, have unveiled proposed regulations for a program that would equal the federally bestowed ‘organic’ status.

Draft regulation for the OCal Program, a statewide certification program, was released in early May, with a public comment period open until July 7. According to the California Department of Food and Agriculture (“CDFA”), the program…

420 with CNW – Congressional Committee Approves Measure Allowing Marijuana Users to Reenlist in the Military

Although plenty of states have now legalized medical and recreational marijuana in various forms, it still carries a lot of stigma. Most employers are uncomfortable with employees consuming cannabis, even during non-work hours, and plenty of sports organizations do not allow their athletes to use marijuana. The military has a harsh stance on marijuana too, and veterans who admit to using marijuana even in a legal state can be barred from reenlisting.

A measure introduced two years in a row by Rep. Ruben Gallego and approved by a Congressional Committee would help resolve the issue. The measure would allow heads of military branches to grant waivers on a case by case basis to service members seeking to reenlist who admit to consuming cannabis or were convicted of a misdemeanor marijuana offense. Text from the measure…

420 with CNW – Survey Shows That Canadians Aren’t Moved by Cannabis Branding

A survey published by Brightfield Group has found that the majority of Canadians are unable to tell pot brands apart despite the resources that these companies have put into marketing.

About 3,000 Canadians were polled during the first quarter of this year. The overwhelming finding of the survey was that brand awareness was woefully low among Canadians, and that they suffered from “decision fatigue” as a result of being faced with so many brands…

420 with CNW – Why NJ Medical Cannabis is Slated to Get a Lot Cheaper

On July 1, New Jersey is slated to reduce the sales tax on medical marijuana from 6.625% to 4%. This move is the first in a series of measures that will see state sales taxes removed entirely within a space of three years. On July 1 next year, the tax will reduce to 2% and the following year (July 1, 2022) will see the reduction to a 0% state sales tax.

However, the sales tax reforms which roll out tomorrow don’t mean that buyers of medical marijuana will not pay any taxes on their purchases. Municipalities within New Jersey are still allowed to impose a 2% sales tax within their jurisdictions, but so far…

420 with CNW – Americans Think Cannabis Use is More Morally Acceptable Than Many Hot Button Issues

For decades, cannabis has been aggressively prohibited, and tons of people have had their records permanently stained by marijuana possession charges. However, over the past few years, attitudes towards marijuana have changed, with plenty of territories legalizing it in various forms.

And according to a new study by Gallup, majority of Americans do not find marijuana consumption more immoral than most divisive issues. Released to the public on Tuesday, the poll found that Americans consider marijuana consumption more morally acceptable…

420 with CNW – US April Marijuana Sales Remain Strong Despite Coronavirus Pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic has dealt a massive blow to the economy, and experts say it will take years to recover to pre-pandemic levels. State governments ordered the closure of all non-essential businesses, coupled with social distancing and self-isolation to curb the spread of the virus, but these measures wreaked havoc on the economy. Several industries have been almost been brought to a standstill as the country waits for the virus to pass, resulting in millions of job losses. However, one industry that seems to be weathering the storm is cannabis.

Many states with legal cannabis programs declared the industry essential, allowing cannabis dispensaries to continue operations amid COVID-19 related shutdowns. In some states, home deliveries and curbside deliveries were also allowed to reduce contact between staff and customers. In the weeks leading up to the shutdowns, cannabis shops reported increased sales as customers stocked up for the coming weeks they would spend in self-isolation. And, as broader retail sales fell by double digits in April, cannabis sales stayed strong. According to data from BDS Analytics, some states reported…

420 with CNW – Georgia Legislators Add Marijuana Decriminalization to Police Reform Bill

For the past few years, the US has been stuck in a state of civil unrest, with millions of Americans protesting police brutality against unarmed black folk. Triggered by the tragic murder of George Floyd by a police officer on the streets of Minneapolis, the countrywide protests have forced lawmakers to start working on policing reform legislation. In Georgia, as part of a recently filed comprehensive bill, lawmakers added a provision to decriminalize low-level marijuana possession.

It’s no secret that the decades-long War on Drugs has had a disproportionate effect on the black community. Advocates for the legalization of marijuana have repeatedly stated that legalizing cannabis is the first step in reversing the damage done to such communities. Senate Democrats introduced the Georgia Justice Bill to coincide with the reconvening of the legislative…

420 with CNW – CDC Flooded with Comments on Kratom and Marijuana

For years, humanity’s main defense against chronic pain has been opioids. However, opioid addiction has quickly become a major issue in America with 450,000 people dying from overdoses involving prescription and illicit opioids from 1999 to 2018. On April 17, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) called on patients living with chronic and acute pain to comment on their perspectives on the benefits and harms of opioid use as well as their experiences with other non-opioid and non-pharmacological treatments for pain.

By the time the June 16 deadline had passed, the CDC had received hundreds of comments about medical marijuana and thousands of comments related to kratom, a lesser-known herb that has shown promise as a pain reliever. The CDC had stated that it is looking for input…
