Here’s What Can Happen If You Give Marijuana To Minors

It might sound like sharing weed with your teen is a hip move, but it can actually get a person in deep trouble with the law.

Some adults believe it makes them “cool parents” to have an open relationship with their children and smoke marijuana with them from time to time. This sort of thing happens fairly regularly, but we really only hear about it when the hammer gets brought down on those adults who subscribe to this irresponsible policy.

Will It Be A Brexit Boom Or Bust For U.K. Cannabis?

A Boris Johnson Brexit looks set to free the U.K. from the regulatory orbit of the European Union (E.U.) and usher in an exciting new era for cannabis.

The freedom to overturn the restrictive E.U classification of CBD as a ‘Novel Food’ is the key potential Brexit win for many. This, and the removal of punitive restrictions on cultivation, could prompt a U.K. cannabis investment boom.

However, some U.K.-based cannabis brands with an international focus fear Brexit could lead to more ‘Red Tape’ – and increased costs.

Indiana GOP Lawmakers Seek to Override Relaxed Marijuana Laws in Indianapolis

If local officials no longer want to enforce anti-marijuana laws, Indiana Republicans want the state to step in. 

That is the gist of the legislation that was approved Tuesday by a panel in the state senate. The bill would allow the Indiana attorney general’s office to intervene if a county prosecutor were to not enforce a particular law—a direct response to a policy announced last year by the prosecutor of Marion County, where the capital and largest city Indianapolis is located, to no longer pursue simple marijuana possession cases.

The bill, introduced by Indianapolis GOP state Sen. Michael Young, was endorsed by a 6-3 vote by a state Senate committee.

New York cannabis bill could legalize possession of as much as three ounces of marijuana

New York, as always, is pushing the envelope.

A new proposal supported by state Democrats would allow New Yorkers older than 21 to legally possess three ounces of marijuana — three times the amount typically permitted in other areas of the country.

Supporters of the proposal, which was sponsored by Senator Liz Krueger and Assemblywoman Crystal Peoples-Stokes, argued the legal amount needs to be set high enough to prevent people from needlessly getting caught up in the state’s legal system, according to The Associated Press.

Democratic governor Andrew Cuomo is pushing a competing proposal that would allow for the legal possession of an ounce of the drug.
