The ad proclaims “Life is Better With Legal Cannabis.” But for most of the readers who saw it in their morning paper, marijuana is not legal.

The ad from Canna Provisions gives the address, website and phone number of its store in Lee, Massachusetts. It ran on the bottom of the front page of the Aug. 30 Times-Union of Albany, New York. The paper is available on Berkshire County newsstand but decidedly not a Massachusetts publication.

The ad includes tiny, baseball box score-size type listing state-mandated disclaimers, concluding with, “This product may be illegal outside of MA.”

Chris James says he wants to draw attention to the issues affecting him and other small pot entrepreneurs.

At least three illegal pot shops opened Saturday in another brazen display of defiance and disregard for numerous efforts by the city to keep them closed.

One shop went a step further, promising to distribute free marijuana vouchers worth $200,000 starting at “high” noon.

Vaping is the inhaling of vapor created by an electronic cigarette or any other vaping device. Bongs and water pipes are the ultimate way to smoke. With the right bong, you can be sure that your smoke is not only cool but also clean. It is important to have the best bongs for an easier smoke experience. E-cigarettes are battery-powered smoking devices. A vape battery heats the coil to vaporize the matter.

Ontario’s cannabis crown corporation loses $42M last fiscal year

Ontario’s government lost $42 million selling cannabis in its last fiscal year, according to provincial public accounts released on Friday. The losses come despite the Ontario Cannabis Retail Corporation, a crown corporation that operates the Ontario Cannabis Store’s online retail business and sells wholesale cannabis to the province’s private retail stores, generating $64 million in the fiscal 2018-2019 year. An OCS spokesperson said the agency wasn’t able to book wholesale revenue from selling into the first wave of physical retail stores in the latest fiscal year, which hurt the crown corporation’s bottom line. Meanwhile, the Ontario government said Friday it generated $19 million in revenue from cannabis excise taxes in its last fiscal year, falling well short of the $35-million estimate presented in the most recent provincial budget.

Granola is one of those dishes that you often never think to make yourself, but is actually one of the easiest things to make. I love this recipe because you can customize it with your favorite fruit or nuts, and you can substitute some of the coconut oil for cannabis-infused coconut oil.

On Thursday, Congressman Greg Steube, who represents Florida’s 17th district, introduced a bill that would downgrade the controlled substance scheduling for marijuana. Steube’s bill, the Marijuana 1-to-3 Act of 2019, would reclassify cannabis as a Schedule III controlled substance. Currently, the federal government considers cannabis a Schedule I drug with “no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.” Downgrading cannabis to Schedule III, a classification which includes drugs like ketamine and anabolic steroids, would primarily make it easier for scientists to research cannabis and its health effects.

Marijuana 1-to-3 Act Would Allow for Federally-Funded Cannabis Research

On September 12, Congressman Greg Steube tweeted a press release announcing a bill to downgrade marijuana from a Schedule I to a Schedule III controlled substance. “The Marijuana 1-to-3 Act will allow additional research to be done on the benefits of marijuana by removing bureaucratic red tape,” Steube wrote in the tweet.

According to Steube’s press release, the bill directs the Attorney General of the United States to make a simple change to the Controlled Substances Act: dropping “marihuana” down to Schedule III. In the release, Steube acknowledges there are clearly medical benefits to cannabis. “We hear every day about the

The tug of war between the city and an infamous illegal cannabis franchise rages on as one of CAFE’s previously shutdown locations has defied a city order and reopened for business.

Giant concrete blocks have been removed from 1321 St. Clair Ave. W., one of four stores operated by CAFE, or Cannabis and Fine Edibles, which had been shut down by city staff as part of their crackdown on illegal cannabis operators.

Entrances to the other three locations are still blocked.

Two members of Florida’s delegation to the U.S. House of Representatives introduced a bill on Thursday that would expand research into the medicinal use of marijuana. The measure, titled the Expanding Cannabis Research and Information Act, was filed by Democratic Rep. Donna Shalala and her Republican colleague Rep. Matt Gaetz has signed on as a co-sponsor.

If passed, the bill “would develop a national cannabis research agenda, direct the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to collect data on the health impacts of cannabis, establish a National Institutes of Health ‘Centers of Excellence’ research designation, and reclassify cannabis as a Schedule III controlled substance,” according to Shalala’s office.

“For years now, states across the country have been liberalizing their cannabis laws without making corresponding investments in developing a better scientific understanding of the short and long-term benefits and effects of cannabis on human health,” said Shalala. “By rescheduling cannabis and directing our national research infrastructure to study and collect data on how it impacts health outcomes, we are not only bringing federal cannabis policy into the 21st century, but we’re also guaranteeing that we do so safely.”

Pharmacies across Michigan will be giving away free naloxone kits on Saturday in an effort to stem the tide of overdose deaths resulting from the ongoing opioid crisis. More than 50,000 of the emergency overdose-reversing drug kits, sold under the brand name Narcan, will be distributed free of charge through hundreds of pharmacies, according to media reports.

A list of pharmacies participating in the naloxone giveaway is available online. More than 3,000 additional naloxone kits will be available at the Michigan Celebrate Recovery Walk and Rally, to be held in Belle Island, Michigan on Saturday morning. Additional information about the event is available online.

The naloxone kits, which contain two doses of the drug in nasal spray applicators, are available to anyone who requests them. The kits may be picked up anonymously without a prescription, which is not required for naloxone in Michigan.

The naloxone kits being given away on Saturday were purchased by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services with grant money received from the federal government.

Naloxone Saves Lives
