Canada: Federal government set to approve first device for testing drivers' saliva for cannabis

Roadside saliva-testing devices were authorized by Bill C-46, a massive overhaul of Canada's impaired driving laws that passed in June.

The federal government’s crackdown on drug-impaired driving has taken a big step forward, as the Justice Department is set to give its blessing to Canada’s first roadside saliva test. Once in use, police officers will be able to swab a driver’s mouth to test for the presence of THC, the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis.

Medical marijuana patients find CanPay payment app useful

Think of it as PayPal for medical marijuana: CanPay, which enables patients to pay for their cannabis prescriptions without carrying cash, is finding success working with all dispensaries in Florida, its first statewide market.

The payment app is particularly helpful to patients who need delivery, said a spokeswoman for Trulieve, which operates two dispensaries in Orlando and Lady Lake.

“If they can’t leave their house to get to our store, it’s also difficult for them to leave their house to get cash,” said Victoria Walker.

Canada: From hydroponics to robotics, a medical cannabis grower took StarMetro through his process from seed to harvest

Hydroponics, robotics, high-powered lights — growing weed on an industrial level is a serious business. But according to one local independent grower, getting cannabis to flower is as simple as tending to a house plant.

Tom Neumann, who has a medical licence to grow and consume on his farm in Ardrossan east of Edmonton, thinks anyone who is curious should give growing a shot when it becomes legal on Oct. 17. Each household is permitted to grow four plants.

“It’s no different than growing any other plant,” Neumann said. “My parents managed apartments when I was a kid, and my brother used to grow (marijuana plants) in the hallway.”

This is how marijuana goes global

There's a huge investment opportunity unfolding right now, and it's going largely unnoticed. It's based on a global movement to essentially legalize a plant. As wild as it sounds, this plant is still criminalized in most of the world, despite its proven medical and recreational benefits.

The movement began in the U.S. with a few states in what many considered an ambitious social experiment…but it was so successful, and more importantly, profitable, that Canada decided to follow suit. This was just the beginning. Now, with Canada's recreational marijuana legislation set in stone, one small company is turning to lucrative markets across the globe, including Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean - with 1.37 billion potential consumers.

Canada: CSE breaks records as new technologies driven by cannabis lure investors

There’s no surprise that The Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) is booming. We live in an era of disruptive societal and technological change that is delivering wealth to innovative entrepreneurs.

The CSE set out its stand in 2003 to take on the TSX Venture Exchange as a public exchange to allow entrepreneurs to raise finance and mitigate risk. The TSX executives who founded the CSE knew that TMX Group’s 2001 takeover of the Canadian Venture Exchange to create the TSX Venture Exchange (bringing the TSX and TSXV under one roof) provided a need for competition. That foresight is paying off now.
