Concentrates are the fastest growing cannabis product category in the U.S.

Concentrates are currently the fastest growing cannabis product category in the legal industry according to data released earlier this week by Arcview Market Research. The projections are contained in a report by BDS Analytics called “Concentrates: The Hottest Product Category in Cannabis.”

The report shows that concentrates are expected to hit $2.9 billion in sales by the end of 2018, up 49 percent year over year. This makes cannabis concentrates the second largest market in the industry, only behind dried flower.

Concentrate sales are predicted to surpass flower sales by 2022 in size at $8.4 billion with flower expected to be at $8.5 billion.

A Maine restaurant wants to kill lobsters humanely by getting them high

Want humanely killed lobster? Order it baked. Well, it’s actually steamed, and the thoughtful restaurant serving this crustacean advertises it as stoned. To the point: Charlotte’s Legendary Lobster Pound, in Southwest Harbor, Maine, is exposing its lobsters to marijuana smoke before cooking them, according to the Mount Desert Islander.

Owner Charlotte Gill explains that she tested the effects of weed smoke on a lobster named Roscoe, placing the lobster in about two inches of water inside a covered box, and then pumping the smoke into the liquid in sort of a water bong scenario.

New Jersey bill proposes some of the most progressive cannabis laws

New Jersey appears to be moving closer to legalization after a local media source received a copy of a new bill that state lawmakers believe is likely to pass.  

If the bill is passed, New Jersey is poised to have some of the most progressive cannabis laws in the country.

An exciting feature of the bill is the call for consumption areas, or smoking lounges. Ideally, a retailer could actually have a space within their facility, separate from the retail area, for customers to consume product. This would require state and local approval.

The bill also proposes a home delivery system so that customers could purchase product online and have it delivered right to their door.

Congress approves bill to expand medical marijuana research in the U.S.

If it goes the distance, medical marijuana research in the U.S. could make significant strides.

It has been two years since the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration announced that it would allow more cannabis growers other than the University of Mississippi to cultivate marijuana for research purposes. But the licensing process for this expansion, which was initiated under the Obama administration, has been jammed up indefinitely ever since U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions took the reins at the Justice Department.

Michigan's medical marijuana gray area gets grayer

The state Medical Marihuana Licensing Board could not have handled setting up and rolling out the medical marijuana facility licensing system in a more ham-fisted manner. It seems as though the whole thing was set up by people who fear marijuana and don't want it to work.
