Cannabis users in two Dutch cities can smoke legally for the first time as authorities roll out a trial that would expand the country’s tolerance of marijuana to full legality. “Historic moment,” said the health minister, Ernst Kuipers, on Friday as he scanned the first box of legal cannabis in the Baron coffee shop in the southern city of Breda. A misconception abroad is that cannabis is already legal in the Netherlands, which is home to the famous coffee shops and seen as a huge draw for cannabis smokers. In fact, the drug exists in a legal grey area, which the government hopes to stu ..read more

Historically, California has been America’s leader in agriculture, with its vast expanses of land and temperate weather, the state accounts for more than 22 billion in farming ag revenue yearly, including its top producers of grapes at 5.54 billion.   While not listed among the top 10 ag producers in the state, due to Federal laws stubbornly clinging to the failed theory of “no medicinal value,” California cannabis sales certainly should be listed in the top 10, as its sales numbers climbed to 5.3 billion in 2022, following grapes. Even more interesting to note, cannabis tax revenue doubl ..read more

Medical cannabis was legalised in the UK in 2018, but still it isn’t available on the NHS. It means legalisation has made little difference to patients who can’t afford a private prescription. Five years after medical cannabis was legalised, the government still hasn’t funded clinical trials that could see it being used on the NHS, Sky News has been told. The Home Office reclassified the drug in 2018 to allow specialist doctors to prescribe the drug under tight controls. But a year later the NHS watchdog NICE warned doctors that they shouldn’t prescribe the drug to the eight million patient ..read more
