What legal cannabis in California could mean for New Zealand

In September, we get to vote on whether to legalise personal possession of cannabis in New Zealand. For a glimpse into what that might look like, Harrison Christian reports from California, where the legal pot business is booming – bringing good times (and some bad) to the masses.

At a pot dispensary in San Francisco, customers wait in an area resembling a swanky hotel lobby until a cannabis consultant beckons them to a marble counter.

Here, there's an exchange about their needs and preferred method of consumption. The customer is shown a menu with a staggering range of options: there are transdermal patches, body balms and disposable vape pens; sparkling drinks, chocolate-covered goji berries and watermelon-flavoured gummies.

Is weed pickup and delivery risky when it comes to COVID-19?

The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has good news for even the most efficient hoarders.

As self-isolation measures stretch from days to weeks and the potential for personal food options and cannabis supplies begins to dwindle, the CDC is advising that takeout and delivery services are safe to use.

Transmission of COVID-19 primarily occurs through person-to-person contact, according to the Times Union, so as long as customers keep plenty of space between them and others during the transaction, there shouldn’t be too much to worry about.

Are There Dangerous Heavy Metals In Your Weed? Not Even Growers Know

The ability of cannabis to extract dangerous heavy metals from the soil has a dark side, especially in states where the soil may still have some old contaminants lurking within.

The marijuana plant is an amazing plant, full of healing cannabinoids that are still being discovered.

It can be used for phytoremediation, where the plant literally draws in heavy metal contaminants out of the soil, up through the roots, and into the stalks and buds. Tomatoes and some species of geraniums do this too. It cleans the soil, then gets destroyed.
