Irish farmers 'could be given licences to grow cannabis in the future'

Irish farmers could be given licences to grow cannabis for medicinal use in the future. 

The Department of Health told TheJournal.ie that while legislation currently prohibits farmers from growing cannabis, this policy could change. 

“Policy to date has not permitted the cultivation of cannabis for medical use and no licences have been issued for this activity.

“However recent developments on access to cannabis for medical use may prompt a review of this position in the future,” said the department.

It’s two years since Health Minister Simon Harris announced that a medicinal cannabis access programme is to be established, but as of yet no scheme has been rolled out.

The Coffee Joint, Denver's only licensed pot lounge, has been hosting a series of sessions called CannaCoding, bringing industry professionals and prospective cannabis coders together to talk about the developing trade. The lounge initially teamed up with Jamison Ordway, a software engineer and regular Coffee Joint visitor, to give cannabis technology (dubbed "cannatech" by those who work in it) a meeting point.

Gov’t shutdown holds up hemp farmers, keeps non-violent drug offenders in jail

Primary schools are being forced to ration vegetables and TSA employees are too “sick” to work airport security without pay– the federal government shutdown is undeniably wreaking havoc on the United States. And the cannabis world is far from immune, either: waterless hemp farmers and non-violent drug offenders stuck in prison are anxiously waiting for Trump’s wall gambit just like the rest of us.

Calculated risks and strategic game plans make PR in cannabis a creative challenge

 

 

When it comes to marketing and promotion in the cannabis industry, there’s a clear “before” and “after”. Before regulations were set in stone on Oct. 17, the trend veered towards being bold and brave; after legalization, companies are often seen toeing the line.

Pot revenue could fund new education and law enforcement programs

The Colorado General Assembly has been in session for less than two weeks, but lawmakers are already hard at work and have introduced more than 200 bills so far.

A key part of a bill's success or failure is how much money it would cost taxpayers and where the money used to fund the initiative would come from. Since 2014, one of the easiest targets for funding has been marijuana tax dollars.

UConn’s new cannabis course brings scientific rigor to the art of growing

Beginning next week, students at the University of Connecticut have the chance to take a pioneering new course in cannabis horticulture. The course, titled “Horticulture of Cannabis: from Seed to Harvest,” aims to train students in all aspects of the cannabis cultivation process.

Now, Ware is the chief medical officer of one of Canada's largest pot companies, Canopy Growth Corp., which is conducting millions of dollars worth of research on the use of cannabis to treat conditions including anxiety, insomnia and pain.
