How Smart, Connected Products Are Transforming Competition

Information technology is revolutionizing products. Once composed solely of mechanical and electrical parts, products have become complex systems that combine hardware, sensors, data storage, microprocessors, software, and connectivity in myriad ways. These “smart, connected products”—made possible by vast improvements in processing power and device miniaturization and by the network benefits of ubiquitous wireless connectivity—have unleashed a new era of competition.

What Else ‘Smells Like Marijuana’? Here’s Why the Police ‘Smell Test’ Is Invalid

Police have long used the claim that something smells like marijuana as probable cause to justify the search of individuals and vehicles. But the big problem with this so-called smell test is that the reports are entirely unverifiable, and subjective opinion. As well, there are many things that can smell just like marijuana.

Users of the plant have noted it’s similarity to “skunk” scent and other smells. But even when police do find marijuana during searches, this may very well just be random chance rather than the officer’s detection of marijuana smell.

Iconic 2,500 year old Siberian princess 'died from breast cancer', reveals MRI scan

Studies of the mummified Ukok 'princess' - named after the permafrost plateau in the Altai Mountains where her remains were found - have already brought extraordinary advances in our understanding of the rich and ingenious Pazyryk culture.

The tattoos on her skin are works of great skill and artistry, while her fashion and beauty secrets - from items found in her burial chamber which even included a 'cosmetics bag' - allow her impressive looks to be recreated more than two millennia after her death. 

Now Siberian scientists have discerned more about the likely circumstances of her demise, but also of her life, use of cannabis, and why she was regarded as a woman of singular importance to her mountain people.

CANADIAN HEMP GUITARS GIVE LITERAL MEANING TO “STONER ROCK”

In his workshop in a 200-year-old barn in rural Quebec, Boyd Pellow handcrafts electric guitars using traditional luthier methods to create beautiful instruments with optimal sound. The guitars are uniquely designed, using classic styles of the 50s and 60s for inspiration, and aside from the marijuana leaves emblazoned on each headstock, there’s no indication that there is anything at all out of the ordinary about the instruments... until it comes out that they’re built from hemp.

CanniMed Ltd. offers made-in-Saskatoon pot app

It's an app for the times.

CanniMed Ltd. in Saskatoon has developed a program for medical marijuana users.

It cross-references how much a patient smokes every day with their supply. It then calculates when they need to re-order.

Brent Zettl is CanniMed's president.

He said this is a response to the rules around ordering medical marijuana – not a patient's forgetfulness.

"Every other prescription they just walk into the pharmacy, ten minutes later, assuming there's no line up, they've got their prescription filled. In this case, it's not that convenient yet," he said.

"Again, it's trying to be patient-friendly in the reminder, just like any other medication."

The app is free, and works on Iphones, Androids and Blackberries.
