US TX: Texans May Be Able To Buy Medical Cannabis Oil By January

Thu, 10 Aug 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Ft. Worth Star-Telegram, 10 Aug 2017 - In 2015, Gov. Greg Abbott signed the first bill allowing any growing or sale of marijuana in Texas. The Texas Compassionate Use Act legalized the selling of a specific kind of cannabis oil derived from marijuana plants for a very small group of customers: epilepsy patients whose symptoms have not responded to federally approved medication. Two years later, Texans still can't legally buy cannabis oil, but a handful of companies believe they are weeks away from receiving the official go-ahead to become the state's first sellers.

CN ON: Column: Rethink Before Decriminalizing Drugs

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Toronto Star, 07 Aug 2017 - If half a dozen deaths in Toronto last week were likely attributable to fatal opioid-related overdoses, how many do you think would have died if those drugs were legal? Fewer? I don't see the logic in that. Easier access to drugs and no criminal liability wouldn't discourage use, surely. And we're not talking here about a mild mind-bending substance such as pot, which is to become decriminalized in Canada next year. Still stupid - dumb-downing of the populace . . . but it is the consensus will of the nation - because we seem to be just fine with the stupefying effect of "recreational" marijuana and hash despite all the evidence of young lives going off the rails when teenagers toked to the gills lose interest in school and sports and healthy activities. There is a domino effect to falling in thrall with drugs. If you haven't experienced that reality in your own family, then you're lucky, that's all. Or maybe the people you love aren't part of that sub-sect physiologically and psychologically susceptible to addiction. Most users - 90 per cent, according to the literature - will never be addicted, but 10 per cent strikes me as a really high casualty demographic, no pun intended, and the legalization argument gives those lost souls short shrift.

US NJ: Editorial: Adding One More Needed Medical Marijuana Dispensary

Tue, 01 Aug 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Herald News, 01 Aug 2017 - When it comes to the state's medical marijuana law, progress has come in increments rather than great strides. New Jersey's Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act, state law since 2010, has been implemented ever so slowly under Gov. Chris Christie, who has never hidden his disdain for the law. Yet those disappointed by the snail's pace of the law, and the establishment of new medical marijuana centers, have new reason to take heart.



Canada: Editorial: When It Comes To Pot Rules, We're In A Daze

Fri, 04 Aug 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Globe and Mail, 04 Aug 2017 - If the legislative timeline holds, it will be possible for Canadians to legally buy marijuana by this time next year. But as revealed by the news this week that a major Canadian clearing house may refuse to settle some share trades involving cannabis firms, far too many questions remain unanswered.



CN NS: Green, Gray Or Black And White?
