Back in 2018, Utah’s legislature passed a bill to legalize medical marijuana in the state and the move was met with quite the resistance from legalization advocates. Although voters in the state had voted to legalize medical marijuana via Proposition 2, state legislators supplanted it with the Utah Medical Cannabis Act, a more tightly controlled plan for providing marijuana-based treatment. According to Gov. Gary Herbert, the legislation acted as a bridge between opponents of Proposition 2 such as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and those who supported the initiative. However, groups like Together for Responsible Use and…

420 with CNW – How Barcode Labels Improve Marijuana Security and Traceability

Despite being insanely profitable, the nascent cannabis industry still has plenty of kinks to work out. At the moment, the industry lacks a cohesive, nationwide regulatory structure and this has allowed plenty of lower quality products to slip through. Studies have found that a statistically significant portion of cannabis products on the market are either contaminated with heavy metals or do not contain what is stated on their labels. That’s what makes third party testing coupled with barcode labeling so crucial to the industry’s long term survival. Cultivators, processors, and distributors are already required to track their products at every…

420 with CNW – Missouri Injects $2.1M from Medical Marijuana Taxes into Veterans’ Health Programs

For most states that legalized either recreational or medical cannabis, earning tax revenue wasn’t the endgame. Although sales tax wouldn’t hurt, especially now that the coronavirus pandemic has drastically affected the economy, plenty of states pledged to use some of the tax revenue derived from cannabis sales to fund social justice initiatives like health programs for military veterans. Missouri was among them, and although medical cannabis sales are slated to start later this month, the Show-Me State recently completed the first-ever transfer of cannabis revenue to a state’s veteran fund. More than $2.1 million was transferred from the Department of…

Twitter has partnered up with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration to advocate for substance misuse treatment.
