Under the collaboration, Plus Products will donate $1 per tin sold to provide direct financial relief to workers in queer nightlife in San Francisco who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. “The spirit of Pride is celebrating the LGBTQ community, and with social distancing measures in place, staying connected to our communities is more important than ever. Celebrating Pride is a tradition we’ve enjoyed participating in for the past few years,” Jake Heimark, CEO and co-founder of PLUS, said in the news release. “This year, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, PLUS sought an opportunity to focus our impact on those within the LGBTQ community disproportionately affected by the financial hardships the pandemic has caused as we all shelter in place here in California. Nightlife is center stage for queer culture, history, and the continued advancement for LGBTQ rights in our country.

420 with CNW – US Supreme Court Declines to Hear Ohio Marijuana Decriminalization Case

A campaign to decriminalize marijuana in Ohio has been dealt a major blow after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear a case challenging local Ohio officials’ refusal to place decriminalization initiatives on municipal ballots on Tuesday. Back in 2018, activists submitted ballot initiatives to legalize marijuana in Garrettsville and Windham, but the Portage County Board of Elections determined that the initiatives could not appear before the voters.

The board argued that since the proposals constituted administrative rather than legislative issues, they were not appropriate for the ballot process. This led to a two year legal battle between cannabis reform activists and the Portage County Board of Elections, culminating in the Supreme Court’s decision to not hear the case.

Once the ballot initiatives were rejected by the board, decriminalization advocates took the matter to the federal district court. Their argument was that the state statutes that allowed the board to reject the measures violated their First and Fourteenth Amendment rights, thus are unconstitutional. The judge was in agreement and granted them a restraining order and forcing the Secretary of State to let the municipalities of Windham and Garrettsville vote on the proposal.

The district court later issued a permanent injunction prohibiting the state from “enforcing the gatekeeper function in any manner that fails to provide a constitutionally sufficient review process to a party aggrieved by the rejection of an initiative petition.” The victory, however, was short-lived.

The U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals later reversed the district’s ruling and vacated the permanent injunction. Like the defendants, the appeals court believed that the decriminalization measures were an administrative matter, as opposed to legislative, and this gave the board the right to refuse to place the measures on the ballot. Furthermore, the court stated that the plaintiffs did have the right to seek a “judicially imposed remedy through mandamus relief” but instead chose to challenge the state statute itself.

On Tuesday, Bloomberg’s Kimberly Robinson reported that the U.S. Supreme Court will not be taking up the case. While it is unclear whether this will embolden other boards of election in Ohio to reject certain initiatives, Portage County seems to be an isolated occurrence. 17 cities in the state have passed decriminalization measures, and most of them have been through the ballot.

At the moment, jurisdictions with decriminalization on the books include Toledo, Athens, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dayton and Columbus, and cannabis reform activists are looking to significantly increase the number of municipalities with decriminalization on their books.

The news of the Supreme Court’s decision is likely to trigger sector players like Green Growth Brands Inc. (CSE: GGB) (OTCQB: GGBXF) to follow events in Ohio closely in order to see whether lessons there can provide pointers as to what could happen elsewhere.

420 with CNW – Are Hemp Masks the Answer to Sustainable Personal Protection Amid this Pandemic?

The novel coronavirus first appeared late last year in Wuhan, China, and in a little over five months, has brought the entire globe to its knees. With more than 5.5 million confirmed infections and at least 350,000 lives lost, the virus has thrown the world into disarray, with most governments issuing lockdown and stay at home orders to curb its spread.

Unfortunately, experts say we may be stuck dealing with the pandemic for up to two years and that even with a vaccine, it may never go away. The pandemic has placed a massive strain on supply chains, leading to shortages, especially in personal protective equipment such as masks. And since all kinds of essential workers, from nurses and doctors to grocery store clerks and delivery drivers absolutely need masks to avoid infection, this is an issue that needs to be addressed.

Enter hemp masks. The non-psychoactive cousin of cannabis has been a go-to option for sustainable alternatives for the past few years, and it lends itself well to this new challenge. Hemp fabric is quite durable, and it has natural antimicrobial and antibacterial properties that enable it to stay fresh during long wearing sessions.

LoveBad Organics and The Hemp Cooperative (THC) partnered and created an organic hemp face mask with cotton ties. They come in black or a reversible black and white option, are comfortable and easy to wear, and are machine washable.

According to Daniel Ong, co-founder of LoveBad Organics, the other founder Brittany “woke up to this palpable realization that masks are going to be standard and that we should contribute towards the production to supply our friends at our local supermarkets.”

“Prior to the pandemic,” he says, “I had small talks with my twin brother Dany, a co-founding member of The Hemp Cooperative. Shortly after the pandemic took off, he made a prototype, showed it to me, and proceeded to go into production.” The hemp masks are manufactured in the U.S. from organically grown hemp carefully sourced from China.

The brands hire mostly single mothers and senior citizens as seamstresses, and they are paid a higher than normal wage to help them weather the pandemic. Ong says that the reception to the hemp masks has been positive, with a number of supermarket employees reaching out to say that the masks are perfect for their needs.

“If there is a responsibility that hemp brands should take on, perhaps it’s purely to stay in business during these times so that we may continue the momentum that the hemp community has powered over this past decade.”

This is the kind of innovation that makes cannabis companies like Round Meadow Holdings Corp. and The Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX: FIRE) (OTCQX: SPRWF) so proud of this versatile plant whose full benefits seem to be limitless.

CannabisNewsBreaks – Sugarmade Inc. (SGMD) Featured in Global Small Cap Research Report

Sugarmade (OTCQB: SGMD) was recently the subject of a report conducted by Global Small Cap Research (http://cnw.fm/W1a82). An article discussing the report reads, “Outlining what it called a ‘near-perfect business world’ for cannabis delivery operators, the report made a strong case by observing that ‘Sugamade is enjoying participation in a rapidly growing market. . . . Few if any, marketplaces are growing faster than cannabis — and the California market is the epicenter of growth.’ The report stated that during 2019, the cannabis market produced approximately $100 billion in U.S sales, with growth projected to top 32% compounded annually over the next few years. . . . In addition, the reported noted that a general trend for home-delivery service, a favorable labor environment, the advantages of being publicly traded and a disrupted industry that has become even more shattered as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic all combine to create a ‘positive outlook for Sugarmade for the rest of 2020 and into next year. At a time when so many businesses are struggling, we believe companies involved in certain areas of the cannabis marketplace, such as delivery services, are not only surviving, but thriving,’ the report concluded.”
