Is the World Health Organization punting on Global CBD reform?

Although the World Health Organization (WHO) was supposed to make a decision on rescheduling cannabis in the coming months, a report from Cannabis Wire indicates that might not happen at all this year. It is a situation that could not only jam up the course of international cannabis reform, but it is one that stands to sabotage the emergence of a global CBD market, the report reads.

Last month, the agency’s Expert Committee on Drug Dependence was set to release a review of cannabis and its derivatives. There was hope that the assessment would lead all good things, especially for cannabidiol or CBD.

Gov’t shutdown holds up hemp farmers, keeps non-violent drug offenders in jail

Primary schools are being forced to ration vegetables and TSA employees are too “sick” to work airport security without pay– the federal government shutdown is undeniably wreaking havoc on the United States.

Canopy Growth Corp’s (TSX:WEED) big move into the U.S.: Why investors shouldn’t get too excited

Earlier this week, Canopy Growth Corp  (TSX:WEED)(NYSE:CGC) was given a license to produce hemp in New York State. While it’s a big milestone for a TSX-listed cannabis stock, investors need to temper their expectations. There are, after all, some big limitations, and it’s not going to be able to compete at the same level other U.S. cannabis companies will be able to, especially if the state legalizes recreational use.


Alaska regulators approve rules for onsite marijuana use

Alaska regulators on Thursday approved rules for onsite consumption of marijuana at specially designated shops, a significant step for the cannabis industry in the state after years of debate.

The 3-2 vote by the Marijuana Control Board does not mean people can light up at shops right away.

Rather, interested businesses would have to apply for a special onsite use endorsement and devise plans that would meet ventilation and other standards for onsite use and pass muster with the board.

“It’s not like people are going to be opening these up in the next week,” said Cary Carrigan, the executive director of the Alaska Marijuana Industry Association. Carrigan nonetheless called the vote significant and a positive step.

Many 'unknowns' concerning Atlanta's new marijuana law

As a brand new marijuana ordinance takes effect in our state's capital city, reducing the possession penalty to a small fine and no jail time within city limits, legal experts warn there are many gray areas.

One of the state's leading experts on criminal law and youth, J Tom Morgan, said marijuana is the "drug of choice for the millennial generation."

"And, it is very frustrating that I have seen kids whose lives have been ruined, their futures railroaded, because of a conviction for less than an ounce of marijuana," said Morgan, an Albany native who is the former Dekalb County District Attorney and now teaches criminal law at Western North Carolina University.
