An inside look at a Phoenix medical marijuana operation

\

Bill Brothers used to run a Christian radio station. The long-time broadcaster never imagined he would one day end up in the marijuana business.

“Not in my wildest dreams,” Brothers said.

About five years ago, Brothers and his son started a medical marijuana dispensary.

“When the marijuana opportunity presented itself, I had to pray on it, think about, ‘Is this good for society?’ Well, five years later, it’s great for society,” Brothers said.

The owner of Encanto Green Dispensary, Brothers, employs more than 150 employees while serving the medical needs of more than 13,000 patients, including cancer patients and veterans.

“They (veterans) say marijuana has saved their lives,” said Brothers.

5 States angling to put recreational marijuana on the ballot in 2018

Sure, it's the pun of all puns, but the marijuana industry really is growing like a weed. According to cannabis research firm ArcView, the North American legal-cannabis market saw sales increase by 34% in 2016 to $6.9 billion, and they're liable to grow by an average of 26% a year through 2021. That's a nearly $22 billion market up for grabs, and investors certainly want a piece of that pie.

Could marijuana businesses boost reservation economies?

Tribal leaders from California and Washington recently discussed the potential opening of legal marijuana businesses on tribal lands.

Several members of the National Indian Gaming Association attended the meeting and touted the financial and health rewards.

David Vialpando, Santa Ysabel Gaming Commission chairman in Southern California, said the Iipay Nation has a marijuana enterprise that didn’t require a financial investment but reaps revenue.

Vialpando said the tribe creates revenue by leasing tribal land for growing marijuana, taxing licensed dispensaries and charging regulatory fees.

FDA hints it may look into marijuana health claims

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration may start cracking down on claims that marijuana has health benefits that haven’t been proven, the agency’s commissioner said Tuesday.

“I see people who are developing products who are making claims that marijuana has antitumor effects in the setting of cancer,” FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said at a hearing before Congress on a separate matter. “It’s a much broader question about where our responsibility is to step into this.”

It’s high time to start looking at rules around the plant, which some states have legalized for medicinal or recreational use, the commissioner said.

This US marijuana stock is arguably the best on the market -- and it's dirt cheap

What's the best U.S. marijuana stock on the market right now?

Including only the U.S. in the question excludes several of the top candidates, such as U.K.-based GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: GWPH) and the leading Canadian medical-marijuana suppliers. The word "best" is subjective, of course, but in my view rules out the many penny stocks trading over the counter. And while Cara Therapeutics is very promising, that promise stems primarily from products that have nothing to do with the cannabis plant, so I'm hesitant to crown it as the best U.S. marijuana stock.

Cannabis use does not affect teenager's IQ, new research reveals.

Cannabis use does not affect teenager's IQ, new research reveals.

Taking the drug between the ages of 12 and 18 does not cause adolescent's intelligence to decline, a study found.

Yet, children with low IQs are more likely to use cannabis as teenagers, the research adds.

Drug researcher Ian Hamilton from York University told MailOnline: 'This research murders an age-old myth about cannabis.'

Previous studies have revealed cannabis use affects teenager's educational achievements, as well as increasing their risk of depression and psychosis.

Residents in these 3 states are the likeliest to vote on legalizing recreational marijuana in 2018

Few industries, if any, are growing as quickly as legal marijuana. According to cannabis research firm ArcView, the North American legal-weed industry generated $6.9 billion in sales in 2016, which still pales in comparison with the $46.4 billion in sales estimated on the black market. However, by 2021 it's believed that the legal North American pot market will have vaulted in value to $21.6 billion, representing a compound annual growth rate of 26%.
