420 with CNW – Mexico Set to Legalize Recreational Marijuana by October

When Mexico legalized medical marijuana in June 2017, few ever imagined that the country would legalize marijuana for adult-use a couple of years later. Drug cartels have so much influence in the country that one would be led to believe that those cartels would never allow any policy that threatens their illicit business to be passed. However, the tide has turned and according to reports coming from across the border, a legal framework for the legalization of recreational cannabis will be in place by October this year.

If that plan comes to pass, Mexico will be the third country in the world to commercialize recreational marijuana after Uruguay paved the way and Canada followed suit on October 17, 2018.

The legalization of adult-use marijuana now seems to be a logical step if you consider a number of factors.

First, the hand of the legislators has been forced by the judiciary after the Supreme Court made its fifth ruling to the effect that criminalizing recreational marijuana for adults was unconstitutional.

According to Mexican law, once the Supreme Court makes five similar rulings on a matter, then all courts are obliged to take the same position on that issue. This, in effect, means that the Supreme Court indirectly “legalized” recreational marijuana and it is now up to the lawmakers to pass a law to regulate recreational marijuana in the country.

Additionally, the Supreme Court gave the government an October 2019 deadline by which an appropriate law should have been passed to regulate recreational cannabis.

Opinion polls also indicate that an overwhelming 80 percent of all Mexicans favor cannabis legalization. This is a huge tide to ignore!

The lawmakers in Mexico now plan to use their legislative recess (May 1 to August 31) to draft a law to operationalize the ruling of the highest court in the land.

Once the recess ends, the legislators will have approximately one month to debate and pass the law so that the deadline given by the Supreme Court isn’t missed.

If the bill is enacted, Mexico is likely to be a force to reckon with in the cannabis industry. Currently, Canada is seen as the dominant force, but Mexico may upstage it given the huge population difference between the two countries. Canada has approximately 37 million people while Mexico has approximately 130 million people.

The Mexican population offers a huge market for recreational cannabis, and that market will be an irresistible magnet to foreign cannabis companies eager to get a slice of that pie.

Generation Alpha Inc. (OTCQB: GNAL) and Earth Science Tech Inc. (OTCQB: ETST) hope that the legalization of marijuana in Mexico will mark the turning point for the suffering that has been visited upon the people by drug cartels in the country.

420 with CNW – Dutch Government Unveils Plan to Conduct Regulated Cannabis Market Experiment

The Netherlands has had a unique model in which marijuana is neither legal nor illegal yet it is sold in coffee shops. However, the cultivation of cannabis is illegal in the country, so the cannabis products consumed in the licensed coffee shops are obtained from illegal sources. The government wants to end this situation by conducting experiments in the regulated production of cannabis.

To this end, ten cultivators have been selected and each one of them is expected to grow between six and ten different varieties of marijuana. The THC content of that marijuana will be prominently indicated on the product label.

Additionally, about six or ten local authorities will be selected to participate in this experiment. The cannabis grown by the selected cultivators will be exclusively sold in the local authorities that are selected for the program.

This planned experiment was revealed last year when consultations about the program started. The experiment will last for four years, so a final decision on the matter is likely to be made by the government or cabinet that is elected once the current one runs its course.

Already, opposition to this experiment has emerged from different quarters. For example, the umbrella body of the local authorities in the Netherlands (the VNG) says that the government will have a hard time getting local authorities that are willing to participate in the experiment.

This is because those selected areas will have to commit, and ensure that no cannabis from illegal sources is sold within their jurisdictions during the experiment.

Furthermore, the local authorities near borders are also expected to prevent cannabis from being sold to non-residents of Holland to prevent what the government is calling “drug tourism.”

In response to this criticism, the government stated that it would introduce the legally-grown cannabis in phases so that the participating local authorities and coffee shops don’t get rushed into the program.

The Council of State, which is the highest advisory body to the Dutch government, also criticized the cannabis experiment saying that its scope was too small. Just ten local authorities cannot be based upon to get representative information about the whole country, they said.

Nevertheless, the government is pressing on with its plan to announce the ten local authorities that have been selected to participate in this program by the end of this year.

Perhaps this approach of experimenting before passing laws legalizing or outlawing recreational cannabis needs to be adopted by other jurisdictions, such as the U.S. federal government. Such a controlled experiment can bring reliable results instead of passing laws based on preconceived ideas about the perceived effects of recreational cannabis.

Generation Alpha Inc. (OTCQB: GNAL) and Global Consortium Inc. (OTC: GCGX) look forward to the results of the Dutch experiment since those findings will provide valuable lessons that jurisdictions elsewhere can learn from.

420 with CNW – US Marijuana Producers Opt to Certify Products Kosher (Since They Can’t Get Federal Organic Certification)

As the cannabis market matures in different jurisdictions within the U.S., producers are fine-tuning their products in order to make those products more appealing to different segments of the market. One of the ways to target a niche market is by having your product certified as organic.

However, such food classifications are controlled at the federal level in the U.S. and since marijuana is still illegal at the federal level, no marijuana product can be federally certified as organic.

So, what have marijuana producers decided to do?

Several certification bodies have taken root in different states. The most respected certification for cannabis is the “Clean Green Certified”. However, many of the other certifications don’t carry as much weight as the “certified organic” badge on a product’s packaging material.

In order to take cannabis products to the niche market, a producer in California has decided to get a certification that has a religious twist to it.

Mission Kosher Cannabis Inc. is a cannabis company owned by Mitch Davis. Davis decided to have his products certified by a third-party (kosher) in order to be different from the other cannabis producers who were getting their certification from within the cannabis industry.

With the help of Rabbi Levy Zirkind, Mitch Davis is creating kosher certification standards for cannabis after he got his own products Kosher certified.

For those who may not know, kosher certification is very different from organic certification. A product can be kosher certified even if that product isn’t organic.

Kosher certification is all about product cleanliness. The product should not have any bugs in it. The product should also be free from pest infestations. Cleanliness is of the essence. There is a rigorous inspection process that has to be done to check all the boxes on these items before one gets the coveted kosher certification.

Additionally, one’s production system has to undergo random inspections in order for the product to retain its certification.

Mitch Davis says he loves the kosher certification because it has helped him to gel his workforce into a unit. All of the employees know that everything must be clean at all times because you can never know when the kosher inspectors will pass by.

When the inspectors visit, they take a close look at the facilities, such as where the cannabis plants are grown, how they are grown and where they are processed. They check the plants and harvested cannabis bud for pests and they also want to confirm that the employees in the grow rooms are wearing the recommended apparel.

With a kosher certification, who can really miss the federal organic certification?

Generation Alpha, Inc. (OTCQB: GNAL) and Global Consortium, Inc. (OTC: GCGX) congratulate Mitch Davis upon thinking outside the box and coming up with a novel way to show clients that cannabis producers are willing to do everything possible to bring them products of the highest quality possible.

420 with CNW – Former NHL Players to Participate in Post-Concussion Cannabis Treatment Trial

Dozens of former National Hockey League (NHL) players will receive cannabis as part of a study to investigate the effects of CBD on brain injuries.

Dr. Charles Tator, a neurosurgeon and concussion expert, says that his team hopes that CBD will exhibit a therapeutic effect on the former players who suffer from chronic pain and other symptoms of repetitive brain injury.

For this study, the researchers recruited about 100 former NHL players to participate as research subjects.

Half of those people will receive a placebo while the rest will be given CBD. All the study subjects will continue taking any other medication that they were taking for their symptoms.

The researchers will observe these individuals for 12 months and assess whether CBD had any impact on their illnesses. The research is slated to begin this summer.

This research is being conducted in order to find an alternative to the addictive and harmful opioids that athletes take for chronic pain and the other symptoms resulting from the head injuries that they sustain during their playing days.

It is estimated that nearly two out of ten people who sustain sports-related concussion end up with chronic symptoms after the concussion. These symptoms include chronic headaches.

The players also develop emotional problems, such as depression and anxiety. Many of these former players live a miserable life once they are out of the limelight because little attention is directed to them if they aren’t actively playing.

It is such realities that have prompted the NHL Alumni, the Canadian marijuana company Canopy Growth and Neeka Health to team up and conduct this research.

The researchers hope that the complex and multidimensional study that they have taken on will provide valuable insights into how CBD interacts with the behaviors and brains of former NHL players struggling with the symptoms linked to the aftermath of suffering concussions.

This particular study isn’t the first in this area. For example, an earlier study conducted by a team of researchers from Miami University found that a combination of CBD and an anesthetic (NDMA) was effective in improving the condition of test animals that had brain injuries. This team of researchers is now conducting a human study to see what parallels emerge between their animal study and the human one.

The entire cannabis industry, especially FinCanna Capital Corp. (CSE: CALI) (OTCQB: FNNZF) and Generation Alpha, Inc. (OTCQB: GNAL), hopes that the studies confirm that cannabis is not only viable but also better at treating the post-concussion symptoms.

420 with CNW – Cerebral Palsy Added to Michigan Medical Cannabis Qualifying Conditions

Voters approved a ballot measure in 2008 to legalize medical cannabis in Michigan and since then, the list of the qualifying conditions has been expanding slowly. Cerebral palsy is the latest condition to be added onto that list which has just over two dozen health conditions.

LARA (the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs) made the announcement after its sitting to consider the different conditions which had been proposed for inclusion on the list of medical marijuana qualifying conditions. LARA rejected requests to include Chronic Aggressive Behavior among the conditions that can be treated or managed using medical marijuana.

Cerebral palsy, a neurological disorder, develops when the brain of a child gets injured during its developmental stage. Some of the symptoms that can result from this condition are lack of motor function and control. There is evidence that marijuana can help to reduce the spastic movements or the seizures experienced by people suffering from cerebral palsy.

According to the statistics of the United Cerebral Palsy Foundation, about 764,000 people are affected by this disorder in the U.S. Most of those individuals (500,000) are kids that are less than 18 years of age.

It is therefore a big help that cerebral palsy has been added to the list of qualifying conditions in Michigan since conventional medicine offers little help to people suffering from this condition.

It is hoped that more people will now be able to get medical cannabis cards from the state. Currently, 294,000 people are registered and have medical marijuana cards in Michigan.

Accessing the medical marijuana program doesn’t have any age restriction, and many kids with various conditions, such as seizures, are cardholders in the state. The only extra requirements for kids is that a minimum of two doctors should recommend them to start using medical cannabis and the parent or guardian of that minor has to give consent for the child to start taking medical marijuana.

Last year, Michigan voters approved a ballot measure to legalize recreational cannabis. Adult-use cannabis will only be available to those who are at least 21 years old. Plans are underway to set up a regulatory system for the recreational sector, but the medical cannabis program will remain intact.

FinCanna Capital Corp. (CSE: CALI) (OTCQB: FNNZF) and Generation Alpha, Inc. (OTCQB: GNAL) applaud the progressive approach taken by LARA which will allow patients and investors in Michigan to benefit from cannabis as the industry evolves.

420 with CNW – Five Tips for Baby Boomers Trying Cannabis

Baby boomers (those born between 1946 and 1964) are rediscovering cannabis and the industry is taking note of this demographic. However, like everything else, time has exerted its influence on marijuana and the baby boomers would be well advised to keep the following important tips in mind when consuming cannabis.

Start Small

The cannabis of today isn’t the same as what was available decades ago. Plant breeding has yielded cannabis strains that may have more than triple the THC content which was found in the marijuana of the 1970s. It is therefore advisable for you to be cautious when you are just starting out on your “boomerang” journey of reigniting your love for a joint.

Select the Dispensary Carefully

Baby boomers would also be well advised to take their time as they select the dispensary from which to buy marijuana. It is better to select an establishment which has a knowledgeable “budtender.” Such a person will help you to navigate your way through the huge array of cannabis products that are now available in the different dispensaries or retail outlets.

Know the Outcomes You Desire

A knowledgeable budtender can only go so far in helping you to get the right product. You need to make it possible for this person to help you by deciding the effects that you would like to experience when you consume the cannabis you buy. The plant breeding processes mentioned earlier have resulted in the development of different cannabis strains for different purposes.

For example, some strains will calm down your mind as you get ready to sleep while others will reinvigorate your mind and body while you get set for some physical or mental exertion. It is therefore crucial for you to know what experience you want so that the budtender can point you in the right direction.

Learn the Lingo

The cannabis industry has come with its own unique language that one must learn in order to avoid making mistakes. For example, you need to know how “cannabis flower” differs from cannabis “edibles” or “concentrates.” The budtender may help to explain some of the new terminologies you encounter as you explore the new world of marijuana, but it doesn’t hurt to invest some time online learning the language of the industry.

Think About Your Current Medication

It is also helpful to consider how any medication you are currently taking may interact with cannabis. For example, cannabis may increase the uptake of some of the medication you are on, and this may increase the side effects of that medication. To be on the safe side, take the precaution of talking to your doctor first before you consume cannabis.

The cannabis industry, including companies like FinCanna Capital Corp. (CSE: CALI) (OTCQB: FNNZF) and Generation Alpha, Inc. (OTCQB: GNAL), hopes that each baby boomer attains the results for which they try cannabis.

420 with CNW – New York City Legislators Consider Banning Pre-Employment Cannabis Tests

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has outlined his plan to legalize recreational marijuana and this has put New York in pole position to become the 11th state where adult-use cannabis is legal. This development has prompted some lawmakers in New York City to draft a bill that seeks to ban employers from conducting marijuana drugs tests before hiring an employee.

Councilman Jumaane D. Williams is the NYC lawmaker who has filed a draft law that will stop marijuana tests from being part of the hiring process in the city.

Councilman Williams feels that the legislators and the city should be creating more avenues through which people can find jobs, but the drugs tests do the opposite by making it harder for jobseekers to get hired.

He adds that pre-employment drugs tests for marijuana should be done away with now that preparations were in advanced stages to legalize recreational cannabis. Why should employers continue to test prospective employees for a substance that will soon legal?

The bill tabled by Williams provides exceptions to this ban on pre-employment drugs tests. People who intend to get jobs where safety and security are paramount, as well as jobs with the federal government or its agencies would not be covered by this ban on pre-employment drugs tests. Additionally, individuals who are required to undergo drugs testing as a condition for securing a grant or contract from the federal government will not use this local law as a reason to skip the required drugs tests.

If passed, the bill will take effect one year from the time of its enactment as part of the city’s laws. This will remove the ambiguity that has been observed in various jurisdictions, such as Massachusetts, where marijuana is legal but an employee can still be fired for testing positive for THC.

It is good that the lawmakers in New York City have been proactive in tabling this bill instead of waiting to take action after recreational cannabis becomes legal across the state. In such a case, there would be a legal grey area since the existing laws permit pre-employment marijuana tests, which would run counter to the freedom granted by the law legalizing recreational pot.

It remains to be seen what form the final bill will take once the Committee on Civil and Human Rights discusses it and presents it to the full council for debate and a vote. Generation Alpha Inc. (OTCQB: GNAL), Global Payout Inc. (OTC: GOHE) and the whole marijuana industry say kudos to Councilman Williams and the other two co-sponsors of this reform that will remove the ambiguity regarding the use of legal cannabis and its effects on one’s prospects of getting hired.

420 with CNW – Baby Boomers are a Growing Cannabis Market

Statistics have it that baby boomers are a rapidly growing market segment in the cannabis industry, and any firm looking to get a foothold in this industry needs to pay attention to this demographic.

Why This Group Matters

First, baby boomers are no longer taking care of kids, and many are approaching retirement. This means that this group has accumulated some resources and they have disposable income that they can spend on cannabis. Who wouldn’t want a potential client that has money to spend?

Secondly, cannabis isn’t an altogether new substance to these people. Many of them sampled the product or know someone who did during their younger years. It will therefore not be as if you are starting from scratch if you want to get these people to buy your cannabis products.

Thirdly, baby boomers tend to be brand-loyal, so it makes sense to get to them early before a competitor wins their loyalty. Getting them to switch from one brand to another can be a monumental undertaking that you don’t want to attempt.

Crucially, many baby boomers have health conditions for which medical cannabis can be a viable solution. For example, arthritis and chronic pain plague a significant fraction of this demographic. Positioning your products as the products to ease their pains and alleviate other ailments can pay off in a big way.

How to Get Your Foot In

Each demographic has its own unique characteristics that businesses must understand in order to win their patronage. For starters, baby boomers are more likely to pay attention to word of mouth recommendations when compared to other marketing efforts. Crack this method and you will have them buying from you in droves.

Another way to get this demographic is by making it easy for them to access your products. Many among them have mobility challenges while some may be concerned about keeping their cannabis use discreet. Home delivery and shuttle services can address these concerns and boost your sales.

Additionally, this group is what some may call “old fashioned.” Product information should be given to them during face-to-face interactions, especially at the dispensary or retail outlet. Cannabis businesses that are designed to make this possible will get a sizeable share of the clientele in this group.

The cannabis industry, especially Generation Alpha Inc. (OTCQB: GNAL) and Global Payout Inc. (OTC: GOHE) will definitely find ways to meet all the needs of the different age groups, including the baby boomers.

420 with CNW – Legalization Changes How Canadians Talk to Kids about Cannabis

Recreational cannabis was legalized in Canada late last year and this has made parents to rethink how they talk to their kids about cannabis. This adjustment was prompted by the increasing visibility of marijuana in all walks of life.

SheCann founder, Ashleigh Brown, says that the cannabis “talk” should never be regarded as a one-time event. Instead, conversations about the substance should be conducted on an ongoing basis so that kids are empowered to make the right decisions when confronted by opportunities to use the substance.

Speaking in Toronto at a “Women and Weed” event last weekend, Brown said that kids are smart and constantly watch all those around them. It is therefore important that the conversations parents and adults have with kids regarding marijuana should be honest and authentic so that the kids can see a connection between what you are telling them and what they see around them.

Ashleigh Brown used her own experience as a case study. She revealed that she started using medical cannabis in 2016, so her two kids regarded the substance as nothing more than a medicine.

However, after the legalization of recreational cannabis, she started talking to her children about the different ways through which people can use cannabis. Such a discussion helps her kids to make sense of what is around them in case they come across cannabis on the streets or at the parties they attend.

Another participant at the “Women and Weed” event remarked that the way parents talk to kids about alcohol and smoking tobacco cigarettes should be the same way in which they talk about cannabis.

Avoiding such crucial conversations only fuels stigma about cannabis and may increase its appeal to kids, something that every parent would want to avoid.

The issue of discretion vs. hiding cannabis also came up during the discussion. It was okay to lock away one’s stash of cannabis to prevent kids from accessing it, but it wasn’t productive to try to hide the fact that you consume cannabis.

Parents should also educate their kids about the downsides of consuming cannabis, and also emphasize that more research is still being done to get a more detailed understanding of the full effects of cannabis on young users and adults.

Parents in the U.S. states where cannabis is legal can borrow a leaf from what their Canadian counterparts are doing in order to provide sufficient guidance to kids regarding this substance that is still attracting mixed reactions across the U.S. Cannabis industry players like Generation Alpha, Inc. (OTCQB: GNAL) and FinCanna Capital Corp. (CSE: CALI) (OTCQB: FNNZF) would love to see such candid discussions everywhere so that any decisions made are based on concrete information rather than on misconceptions and myths.

Flora California Prime, a cannabis company based in San Diego, intends to build a $200 million cannabis campus in Buffalo once New York legalizes recreational cannabis. Flora California Prime is undertaking the project as a joint venture with Zephyrs Investors (a real estate development firm owned by Brad Termini).

The facility would create up to 1,000 jobs during and after its construction in the vicinity of Tifft Nature Preserve in Buffalo. These people would be employed to do research work, work in the labs, be involved in manufacturing and other related activities.

Brian Termini, the co-founder of Flora California Prime revealed that they saw a major opportunity when New York started taking steps to legalize recreational marijuana.

The Buffalo Urban Development Corporation, the relevant city agency, has already approved the sale of the land to Flora at approximately $2 million, subject to an appraisal. At 47 acres, the Flora facility would be one of the largest throughout the country.

Brian Termini revealed that his company would be ready to start construction work in less than 120 days after the city grants them a permit to go ahead with the project.

However, Termini admitted that his company was not yet sure how the cannabis grown and processed at the facility would be distributed. He said that those details will emerge once the law legalizing recreational cannabis has been passed since the law will provide the guidelines that the company will comply with when designing its distribution system.

He also added that he hopes that the cannabis campus would be operational within a year, but added that no cannabis will be retailed from its premises.

The project will also involve conducting marijuana research, especially on how cannabis can be used in the treatment of cancer. The research activities will be carried out in conjunction with Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Institute.

It is widely expected that a recreational marijuana law will be passed in March or April this year, especially after Gov. Cuomo indicated that the passing of this law would be one of his priorities in the first 100 days of his third term in office.

The city of Buffalo is very hopeful about is economic prospects once the Flora facility is open. This is because the city has been keeping tabs on events across the border in Ontario where several multi-billion companies have emerged from the time medical cannabis was legalized in Canada.

Global Payout, Inc. (OTC: GOHE), Generation Alpha, Inc. (OTCQB: GNAL) and the entire cannabis industry wish Flora all the best in its promising undertaking in New York.
