Chuck Schumer Says Federal Marijuana Legalization Is A Priority In Democrats’ ‘Big, Bold Agenda’

Chuck Schumer Says Federal Marijuana Legalization Is A Priority In Democrats’ ‘Big, Bold Agenda’

The top lawmaker in the U.S. Senate is again making clear that federal marijuana legalization is a priority part of his legislative agenda for 2021. In a fundraising email to his list of supporters on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) laid out what he called “Democrats’ bold agenda for change this year.” After first describing plans to tackle climate change and income inequality, Schumer turned to cannabis. “Next is criminal justice reform—and voters agree,” he wrote. “Voters in four more states this election voted to legalize adult recreational use of marijuana, and that proves once again it’s past time to work to undo the harm done by misplaced priorities, particularly in Black and brown communities. It’s time to decriminalize marijuana nationally.”

USDA Seeks Information From 20,000 Hemp Farmers On Production Practices

USDA Seeks Information From 20,000 Hemp Farmers On Production Practices

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is looking to collect additional data on hemp production from tens of thousands of farmers and ranchers. In a notice published in the Federal Register, the agency said that it’s requesting permission from the White House to “conduct a new information collection to gather data related to the production of hemp,” and a public comment period is now open on the necessity of the survey and best practices to get the information it seeks. It’s not clear exactly what kind of data USDA wants at this point, but the notice states that it expects 20,000 responses and that it will take an average of 15 minutes for respondents to submit the data.

Marijuana cultivators should rethink how they measure water use, new report says

Marijuana cultivators should rethink how they measure water use, new report says

As demand for water increases and the supply remains limited, marijuana cultivators might need to change the way they think about and measure their use of this precious resource, according to a new report compiled by three organizations. Early efforts quantified facility water use by focusing on gallons per plant. But that model doesn’t take into account the variability in plant density, size, and cultivation period, noted the report. The report, released Feb. 24 through a partnership among Washington DC-headquartered marijuana analytics company New Frontier Data, Oregon-based Resource Innovation Institute, and the Berkeley Cannabis Research Center in California, can be downloaded for free here. As an alternative, the report – “Cannabis H2O: Water Use and Sustainability in Cultivation” – outlines new benchmarks that focus on water productivity, efficiency, and demand. It concludes that the new metrics are better at accounting for water use in the variety of outdoor, greenhouse, indoor and hybrid facilities that are currently used in legal cannabis cultivation across the United States. The research comes as challenging climate conditions, especially drought, will make water an even more important input to profitable cultivation as growers deal with water restrictions, scarcity, and higher water costs.

Florida lawmakers to consider bill limiting amount of THC in medical marijuana

Florida lawmakers to consider bill limiting amount of THC in medical marijuana

Many Republican lawmakers in Florida haven’t hidden their skepticism about the use of marijuana as a medical palliative. After voters overwhelmingly approved a constitutional amendment broadly legalizing medical marijuana in 2016, the Republican-controlled Legislature grudgingly laid out a framework for a cannabis industry that has since drawn hundreds of thousands of patients. But, after first outlawing smokable marijuana and then reversing the ban at the insistence of Gov. Ron DeSantis two years ago, GOP lawmakers continue trying to rein in Floridians’ legal use of cannabis. A pair of new legislative proposals would place a 10 percent THC cap on smokable marijuana and limit THC levels to 16 percent in other medical-marijuana products, excluding edibles. THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the main psychoactive component of marijuana that makes users feel high. The bills, filed by Rep. Spencer Roach, D-North Fort Myers, and Sen. Ray Rodrigues, R-Estero, would also impose advertising restrictions on doctors who order cannabis for their patients.

New Zealand: Section 25 Of NZ’s Medicines Act Causing Chaos Says Country’s Medical Cannabis Council

New Zealand: Section 25 Of NZ’s Medicines Act Causing Chaos Says Country’s Medical Cannabis Council

Essentially section 25 is allowing unfettered importation of medical cannabis from overseas and the Council says… Currently, there is less regulatory oversight of Section 25 imports than vitamins sold in supermarkets. Section 25 of the Medicines Act 1981 The exemption provisions in Section 25 allow all authorized prescribers to “procure the supply of any medicine” for a particular patient in their care. The term “any medicine” can include both approved and unapproved medicines. However, the authorized prescriber must always be working within their scope of practice. “Procure the supply” permits the authorized prescriber to obtain a medicine by direct importation, or by requesting that a pharmacy compound a specific medicine for a known patient. An authorized prescriber may only procure the medicine after determining that a patient under their care requires that medicine (ie, the medicine cannot be obtained prospectively). This exemption provision also allows an authorized prescriber to use an approved medicine for an unapproved use.

Thailand Hemp Goes Zero Economic Hero

Thailand Hemp Goes Zero Economic Hero

Hemp, a weed that was long regarded as a forbidden plant and included on the country’s narcotics list, is taking Thailand by storm. Ten categories of goods or products ranging from mouth spray, food supplements, skin care products and energy drinks to painkillers and spa products are cashing in on hemp’s hype after the government legalized commercial growing in the country last year to promote hemp and cannabis as new cash crops. From Jan 29, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has allowed individuals, legal entities, government offices, community enterprises, and companies to register to use the legal parts of cannabis and hemp for medical purposes, as well as in the textile, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. From Jan 29, the FDA approved the use of the legal parts of cannabis and hemp for medical purposes and in the textile, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics industries.
