420 with CNW — Connecticut Retailers See Brisk Business During First Week of Legal Cannabis Sales

Following the opening of seven adult-use dispensaries on Jan. 10, 2023, the first week of recreational cannabis sales in Connecticut was marked by high customer demand, low stock levels and the introduction of gummies. Businesses increased staff, pushed online transactions, shifted employees from cannabis markets, and fulfilled orders outside for customers waiting in line to keep up with the increased demand. Despite numerous restrictions on retail cannabis sales, the Department of Consumer Protection (DCP) reported that adult-use sales exceeded $251,000 in the first few hours of operation. With three of its four medical marijuana licenses converted into hybrid retail permits…

420 with CNW — US Air Force Grants Cannabis Waivers to More Recruits Than Anticipated

As cannabis reform has swept across the country, there have been questions about how institutions that still abide by prohibitionist cannabis policies would deal with an influx of cannabis users among their ranks. Last September, the U.S. Air Force and Space Force launched a pilot program that would allow recruits who had tested positive for marijuana during the enlistment process to enlist. The two military branches announced last year that while active members were still banned from using cannabis regardless of state laws, new recruits who had high enough scores on their qualification tests, did not have convictions on their…

According to a press release issued by the Texas DPS, the department is now accepting applications for the possibility of adding more medical marijuana dispensaries. The application window, which opened on Monday, is expected to close on April 28, 2023. The release stated that the number of licenses that would be approved would be decided in the future.

420 with CNW — NJ Senate Committee OKs Bills Allowing Cannabis Companies to Deduct Expenses on Tax Returns

Cannabis businesses in New Jersey may soon be able to enjoy tax benefits that have been available to companies in other industries for decades. Thanks to cannabis’ federal status as a controlled drug, licensed marijuana businesses cannot access tax benefits, including deductions, despite paying billions of dollars in taxes. The New Jersey Senate Budget Appropriations Committee recently approved two bills that would finally make it possible for cannabis businesses to deduct some expenses on their state tax returns. The companion measures came from the Assembly and the Committee's chamber before the committee made them identical and advanced them. The pair…

New Jersey is staying true to its farming reputation and history when it comes to cannabis production and sales.

420 with CNW — Las Vegas Prepares to Launch First Marijuana Hotel in April

Voters in Nevada approved the recreational consumption of cannabis by individuals aged 21 and above on the November 2016 ballot. Like most states with legal cannabis markets, Nevada outlawed public cannabis consumption of any kind, meaning individuals had to use cannabis within their homes. Since cities such as Las Vegas were looking to benefit big from cannabis tourism, out-of-state visitors had no choice but to consume cannabis in private residences with the owners’ permission. However, that will change when the Artisan Hotel Boutique becomes the first hotel to offer facilities for public consumption for residents and tourists. Elevations Hotels and…

The first draft of the marijuana legalization bill for the 118th House meeting has been filed by Republican House legislators, and it calls for allowing medical marijuana patients to buy and own guns.

The bill's entire text is not yet available, although it has the same short name as Mooney's Second Amendment Protection Act from…
