Someone planted 34 cannabis plants in the Vermont Statehouse flower beds

At least 34 cannabis plants were removed from a flower bed at the Vermont State House last week after a visitor to the state capitol in Montpelier reported their presence to law enforcement. Capitol Police Chief Matt Romei said, after the plants were discovered, that he was unsure if the young plants were hemp or marijuana and that groundskeepers on the property may have found more plants after the initial discovery.

The chief added that he was not surprised that the cannabis plants found a suitable home in the well-tended garden that lines a walkway in front of the statehouse.

A Majority of consumers don't think cannabis impairs their driving

Most people know that to consume alcohol and then get behind the wheel of a car is very dangerous — not just for the driver and passengers, but for anyone else sharing the road. For cannabis consumers, however, understanding levels of impairment is not so straightforward, writes Erin Hiatt. 

To date, there is not yet a technology used by law enforcement that can accurately detect cannabis impairment similar to alcohol breathalyzers. Two companies, Oakland-based Hound Labs and British Columbia, Canada-based Cannabix Technologies, Inc. are working to develop devices that can detect a window of impairment for cannabis consumers.

WEED WARRIORS Were Vikings POTHEADS? Archaeologists uncover evidence of cannabis at 1,000-year-old settlement

ANCIENT cannabis pollen has been discovered near a Viking settlement in Canada, leading archaeologists to question whether the seafaring warriors were making use of marijuana while they explored North America.

The L'Anse aux Meadows archaeological site is the only confirmed Viking settlement in Newfoundland and the researchers have found evidence that it was occupied by them for over a century.

This new evidence could change what we know about the spread of cannabis across the globe.

FSAI recalls batch of Dutch cannabis oil after finding it contains psychoactive cannabis

THE FOOD SAFETY Authority of Ireland (FSAI) has recalled a batch of CBD oil after discovering that it contains the psychoactive compound in cannabis.

The authority has recalled 10ml bottles of extra strong Euphoria Full spectrum Oil, which has been imported from the Netherlands and has a ‘best before’ date of 31 August 2020, after finding it contains Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a chemical constituent of the cannabis plant, and products based on it can be legally sold in Ireland.

The compound does not produce the same psychoactive effects that THC produces, so it does not get users high in the manner associated with the recreational use of cannabis.
