Medical marijuana will arrive in Israeli pharmacies in time for 4/20

Select Israeli pharmacies will begin selling medical marijuana... on April 20, of course.

Instead of teenagers smoking after school at 4:20 p.m. or activists waiting until April 20 (4/20 by American date notation), nearly two dozen Israeli pharmacies will start selling medical marijuana on that date this Friday – known worldwide as a day on which advocates for legalization light up in public. As part of a pilot program, 21 Super-Pharm outlets plan to sell medical cannabis oil in cities throughout the country, with the exception of Tel Aviv and Eilat.

Two other private pharmacies plan to participate but are not expected to start selling this week, while the four Israeli health fund pharmacies are not interested in providing medical marijuana – for now.

Aphria profits up on Liberty Health sale, while U.S. cannabis prospects improve

Aphria revenues double, year-over-year, thanks to Broken Coast acquisition and new patients.

Aphria Inc.’s third-quarter income nearly tripled year-over-year, in a busy three months that saw the cannabis company begin to sell its U.S. assets and acquire smaller licensed producer Broken Coast Cannabis Inc.

On Monday, the Leamington, Ont.-based medical marijuana grower announced third quarter net income of $12.95 million or 8 cents a share, compared with $4.95 million or 4 cents a share the year before. The increase was due, in large part, to a $26.3 million gain realized on the sale of Liberty Health Science Inc. shares.

Colorado just released its legal marijuana data - Guess which profession attracts the most stoners?

As legalization of marijuana – either completely or for medical use – spreads across the United States, the government is understandably trying to keep track of what impact it has on society, if any at all.

The state of Colorado, in which it is legal to smoke pot, has just released its latest survey results on smoking habits, including the most stoned occupation. It probably won’t come as too much of a surprise that those who work in the food industry are the biggest smokers, but the results do give an interesting breakdown into how legalizing the drug has impacted Colorado.

Maine’s Governor LePage vows to veto bill regulating cannabis sales

Staunchly anti-legalization, Maine’s Governor LePage vows to veto bill regulating cannabis sales. Will his views be enough to stop it though?

Maine’s Governor LePage vows to veto bill regulating cannabis sales in the state, it was revealed this week. But that might not be enough to stop the measure.

The Maine House of Representatives passed the bill last week by a vote of 112-34. That margin is enough to override a LePage veto. The Senate is currently considering the compromise law and is expected to give its final approval later this week.

Canada: Firm sees a future in marijuana tablets

Later this week a familiar story will play out when a private medical marijuana company, Canntab Therapeutics Limited, merges with a shell, Telferscot Resources Inc., and starts trading on the Canadian Securities Exchange, thereby providing investors with yet another way to play the marijuana industry.

But this transaction is different in a couple of ways: first it will bring to an end the seven-year hunt by Telferscot — which went public in 2011 as a mineral exploration company — to find either a permanent partner or a permanent business.
