Former UK Chief Drug Advisor wants medical cannabis for the masses

Submitted by Marijuana News Cannabis and Hemp have been under prohibition across most of the world since the 1930s. But with legalization afoot in the US and some countries in Europe, some experts want it to be “embraced like Penicillin.” As cannabis legalization sweeps across North America – with Canada being the latest country to permit cannabis for medical and recreational use – some countries in Europe apparently didn’t get the memo. The UK government, for example, has always been very conservative when it comes to the cannabis legalization issue, no matter who’s in power. Other countries in Europe...

Submitted by Marijuana News A three-year-old girl with severe epilepsy is now being given medicinal cannabis for free by a Canadian company because the NHS won’t give it to her.

What’s a ‘Canna-Cure’ and why is it beneficial?

Submitted by Marijuana News After a long day of work, there’s nothing better than making an appointment to get a relaxing manicure and pedicure. You just pick a color, sit back in a comfy massage chair, and then let someone else pamper you. What tops that? Well, if you want to take the pampering up to the next level, it’s time to sign up for a CBD-enhanced mani/pedi called a “canna-cure.” Nail salons and spas in several states are now offering CBD packages and customers are flocking to try them.

Georgia on cusp of legalizing medical marijuana

Georgia is on the verge of legalizing medical marijuana after the state assembly passed a bill that would allow for the in-state sale and production of the drug for medicinal purposes. Cody Hall, a spokesman for Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, said Wednesday morning he’ll sign the bill into law. The legislation, HB 324, closes loopholes created from a 2015 act that legalized the use of low-THC cannabis oil for certain medical conditions but did not allow for the growing, selling or possession of the oil in the state. The new bill would allow for the “production, manufacturing, and dispensing”...

Big money is about to get access to marijuana stocks

Submitted by Marijuana News Here’s a crazy scenario that’s still a harsh reality for marijuana stocks: Imagine running a legal business — one approved by the state — and generating millions of dollars in revenue…but not being able to deposit it in a bank account. Crazy, huh? Think about paying the bills. Instead of writing a check or sending money electronically, you need to deliver cold, hard cash. Grab your briefcase filled with wads of $100s to go pay the electric bill to keep the lights on. I’m exaggerating a bit to make a point, but the feeling is...
