Ganja Is Our ‘Life Blood’ – Western Farmers

With Science, Technology, Energy and Mining Minister Phillip Paulwell recently stating that Jamaica plans to become a world leader in exploiting the economic value of ganja, ganja stakeholders are of the view that the government is finally seeing the light they have been basking in for a long time.

In fact, during a recent visit to their community by Justice Minister Mark Golding, Security Minister Peter Bunting and Tourism Minister Wykeham McNeil, residents of Orange Hill, near Negril, Westmoreland, told The Western Focus that, ganja is the 'life blood' of their community

Tilray Launches New Industry Association and Code of Ethics for Canadian Medical Cannabis Producers

In an effort to advance the highest standards within Canada’s medical cannabis industry, Tilray has founded a new association, the Canadian Medical Cannabis Council (CMCC), to represent licensed producers and other industry stakeholders who are committed to building long-term trust with patients.

Following several unsuccessful attempts to persuade the Canadian Medical Cannabis Industry Association (CMCIA) to adopt a Code of Ethics that mandates a commitment to safety, transparency and avoidance of conflicts of interest, Tilray has terminated its membership with the CMCIA. While we are disappointed to end this relationship, we feel that the CMCIA and its members have failed to serve the best interests of Canadian patients.

MAKING THE ‘GRASS’ GREENER: MARIJUANA AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Improving cannabis’ environmental impact is a growing concern and a priority for Greening Corporate Cannabis founder Jonathan Valdman. PLUS, 5 top-level ways to reduce indoor production’s carbon footprint. 

 

A bit of irony just might exist in the marijuana industry.

Prohibition forced marijuana growers “into the closet” and under artificial lights. “A whole industry developed,” says Jonathan Valdman, founder of the environmentally focused organization Greening Corporate Cannabis (GCC).

As legalization continues to spread like (pardon the overused pun) a weed, marijuana’s indoor growing habits have grown right alongside the new, legal industry.

These are the features of Mexico's monstrous home-made narco tanks

As drug trafficking-related violence in Mexico rages, the cartels have come up with a radical solution for improving their capabilities in faceoffs with other criminal groups and Mexican security services.

Narco-tanks are home-made armored vehicles, also known in Spanish as "monstruo" for their hulking size. They reached peak popularity in 2011 as the Mexican military seized a garage from the Los Zetas drug-trafficking organization that was being used to construct the vehicles. At that point, criminal gangs could operate military-like vehicles out in the open with apparent impunity.

Who Controls Key Purchasing Decisions Today?

I’ve been in B2B for about 15 years now, dealing with senior executives in a wide variety of companies. For the most part, the decision-makers at these firms have usually fallen into the 45–60 year-old age category—people in senior roles, at the peaks of their careers.

But in the last two years, I’ve started to notice a real shift. Those decision-making roles are increasingly being filled by millennials. While I’ve certainly seen this younger cohort in the workplace, they haven’t been the ones making the decisions—until now.

What It Takes to Build a Business in a Legal Grey Area

Disruptive businesses make the headlines, but they also face real risks. Why you need to tread carefully around the law

Years ago, I worked as a waitress at a popular independent brew pub with an origin story that was the stuff of local legend. The proprietor had bought a heritage building, outfitted it with expensive brewing equipment and hired a full-time brewmaster to develop premium ales and lagers. He had just one problem: It wasn’t yet legal for an establishment in Ontario to produce and sell its own beer on-site. He started the business anyway, shilling sandwiches and sodas until the law changed and allowed the pub to sell the suds that have made it a prosperous business for nearly 30 years.

Marijuana vs. Salmon? Climate Change May Be Forcing Tough Choice

A perfect storm is converging on the tribes of the “Emerald Triangle,” the name given to the three counties – Humboldt, Mendocino and Trinity – in Northern California where much of the country’s marijuana is grown, hidden under canopies of trees. After four years of drought, the worst in California’s history, a State Department of Fish and Wildlife report published in March found that illegal marijuana grows have been using hefty portions of scarce river water in those counties, threatening both water resources and salmon habitats. Meanwhile, the U.S.

Don't Fail Your Employees: Why Professional Development Training Is Critical

Zig Ziglar sent an important message when he said, “The only thing worse than training your employees and losing them, is not training your employees and keeping them.”
 Although many factors contribute to a negative employee culture, including poor management, lack of advancement opportunity, low pay, and other factors, there is another strong correlation: how well people are trained to do their jobs. It turns out, if people feel well-prepared and well-equipped to succeed in their roles, that feeling improves their morale.

Judge awards $15-billion to Quebec smokers in landmark case against tobacco giants

In a ruling described as “historic” by one lawyer, a Quebec judge has ordered three major cigarette companies to pay $15 billion to smokers in what is believed to be the biggest class-action lawsuit ever seen in Canada.

“These three companies lied to their customers for 50 years and hurt their right to life,” Andre Lesperance, one of the lawyers involved in the case, said Monday.

“It’s a great victory for victims as well as for society in general.”

For Lise Blais, the judgment was bittersweet.

One of the two lawsuits that eventually merged into one was filed by her husband, Jean-Yves Blais, shortly before he died of lung cancer in September 2012 at the age of 68.

Canada: Licensed medical marijuana growers say clinics pushing for referral fees

One of Canada’s largest licensed medical marijuana producers says it has repeatedly been hit up by specialized clinics asking for money in exchange for referring patients to them – a practice that underscores the lack of clear rules governing the relationship between consumers, their doctors and growers in the nascent industry.
