420 with CNW — SAFE Banking Act Sponsor Vows to See Bill Passed Before He Retires

Operating in the legal cannabis space is no mean feat. Due to the plant’s federal status as a controlled substance, marijuana businesses have to deal with a lot of issues that players in other industries don’t even have to think of. For starters, most banks refuse to work with marijuana businesses in fear of federal reprisals, forcing the businesses to operate on a largely cash-only basis. This makes accounting and filing taxes extremely cumbersome and makes the business prime targets for criminals. For quite a while, industry stakeholders have argued for some kind of policy or regulation that would allow…

420 with CNW — State, Federal Officials Work Together on Draft Cannabis Standardization Proposals

America’s state-legal cannabis industry may be incredibly lucrative, but it is far from perfect. Barely more than a decade old, the sector is known for its patchwork laws and lack of standardization. For quite a while, industry stakeholders and reform activists have argued for the creation of standard rules and procedures. This would make interstate trade possible and allow the industry to really grow. Last week, local, state and federal officials met to discuss proposals that could end up in a federal handbook for cannabis regulation. Cannabis was on the agenda for two National Conference on Weights and Measures (“NCWM”)…

420 with CNW — Future Cannabis Impairment Testing May Rely on Brain Scans

Legalizing cannabis has brought forth a ton of benefits: the state-legal industry has created hundreds of thousands of new jobs, generated billions of dollars in revenue and filled state coffers with billions of cannabis tax dollars. This money has been used to fund plenty of social-equity programs designed to help the underprivileged as well as communities that were disproportionately affected by the war on drugs. However, making recreational cannabis legal has made traffic policing much more difficult. While we have a relatively accurate way of testing how drunk an individual is, no such test exists for cannabis. At best, current…

We don’t know a lot about how cannabis affects the body, although anecdotal accounts and preliminary research shows that cannabis has some therapeutic ability. However, the consensus among most experts is that we need more research on cannabis. In the meantime, what we do know about the controversial plant is significant enough. Studies have found that cannabis can reduce seizures suffered by children with intractable epilepsy. Furthermore, the FDA has approved a CBD-based drug called Epidiolex to treat two rare and severe forms of pediatric epilepsy: Dravet Syndrome and Lennox Gastaut Syndrome.
