Cannabis Banking Left out of NDAA

United States Congress has declined to include cannabis banking in the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act). The NDAA is an annual congressional bill guiding policies and funding of federal military agencies. Often, the NDAA is used to undermine the principles the United States was founded on.

For a decade, British Columbia (among other Canadian cities) has provided a clean, safe supply of drugs for the addicted.

Does CBD Modulate THC? No, Says Study

Does CBD modulate the effects of THC? No, says a new study. For years, both experience and research have indicated that CBD has a mitigating effect when consumed with THC.

It is more decriminalization than the commercialization of the industry. The bill says possessing up to seven grams “shall be lawful,” despite no commercial market. A top government official is skeptical that the bill will become law. Right now, […]

Canadian cannabis legalization was and is still about “public health and safety.” But it’s clear from these three signs that cannabis legalization was more about lining the pockets of a few select players and a public sector that lives off the taxpayer. 3rd Cannabis Stigma: Excise […]
