420 with CNW — Congressional Legislators Voice Support for Cannabis Banking

A bicameral conference charged with negotiating the final text of a large-scale bill intended to make the U.S. competitive against China saw many conferees express support for including cannabis banking language in the manufacturing bill. This was during the first sitting of the conference.

At least half a dozen conferees took to the floor to mention the marijuana banking issue when debate on the manufacturing bill started. The majority of these members spoke in support of including the banking bill in the final document agreed upon during the conference.

For example, Rep. Earl Blumenauer from Oregon stated that several overdue policy changes, such as allowing cannabis companies to access banking services, needed to be addressed. He went on to mention that in just one week, there were three fatalities in the home state of the chairwoman and those fatalities were linked to robberies targeting cannabis shops.

He added that SAFE banking was now an issue of life and death and, having been passed half a dozen times before, now was the time to include it in the manufacturing bill so that public safety could be ensured.

Senator John Hickenlooper from Colorado also added his voice to those calling for cannabis banking during the conference meeting. He said that the conference was an opportunity to reinvigorate manufacturing in the United States, and reforming banking laws in order to facilitate access to banking services by marijuana companies can bring this industry from “the darkness” and into the light of the formal financial system.

Senator Patty Murray, the third-highest ranking senator on the Democratic side of the political aisle, expressed her hope that the conference would reach an agreement to include cannabis banking in the COMPETES bill so that marijuana companies in different states, including hers, would no longer face the threats arising out of operating on a cash-only basis.

Only one conferee, Senator John Barrasso, a Republican from Wyoming, spoke against including cannabis banking in the manufacturing bill. He wondered how cannabis banking is connected to competing with China on the global stage and therefore saw no reason to keep SAFE banking in the COMPETES bill.

Pressure has been mounting to enact reforms aimed at granting marijuana companies access to banking services, especially in the wake of the armed robberies that have targeted state-legal cannabis companies. As the death toll rises from this violent crime wave, so will the ridiculousness of denying marijuana industry actors such as Flora Growth Corp. (NASDAQ: FLGC) access to mainstream financial services.

CannabisNewsBreaks – Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) Aims to Deliver Safer Alternative for Nicotine Experience

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) will soon begin a human clinical study, NIC-H22-1, to compare its DehydraTECH-nicotine pouch performance with that of existing brands such as ON! and Zyn, currently available in the U.S. “Animal testing has already demonstrated that DehydraTECH-nicotine can deliver peak nicotine performance to the bloodstream 10 to 20 times faster than the study’s controls,” a recent article reads. “Lexaria has long held that any form of inhaling chemical substances can be detrimental to health, and its DehydraTECH-nicotine aims to help vapers as well as smokers wean themselves off of those products, giving them relief from cravings while offering a safer nicotine alternative. ‘My father also died from lung cancer … so I am no fan [of smoking],’ CEO Chris Bunka told Forbes in 2019. ‘The fact that [DehydraTECH] is fast means that smokers might not be frustrated waiting for their nicotine experience to begin, the way they have been with traditional nicotine products such as gums and lozenges.’”

Flora Growth Corp. (NASDAQ: FLGC), A Company Revolutionizing the Plant-Based Wellness and Lifestyle Industry

  • Flora Growth has been building a design-led collective of plant-based wellness and lifestyle brands
  • Through the work done by its pharma division, the company earned over $31.5 million in gross proceeds in the year ended November 2021
  • The company still maintains its revenue guidance projection of $35-45 million for 2022, attributed mainly to product diversification initiatives, strengthening its supply chain, and adoption of cost-effective cultivation practices

Since its inception, Flora Growth (NASDAQ: FLGC) has remained committed to building a design-led collective of plant-based wellness and lifestyle brands. This objective has defined Flora Growth’s three central pillars- wholesale cannabis, pharmaceutical cannabis, and CPG cannabis brands. Moreover, it has given the company and its management a platform to interact with and exchange ideas with other players in the plant-based wellness space, even as it seeks to grow its revenue through acquisitions and strengthening its distribution network.

Specifically, Flora Growth’s pharma division has been a leader in its sector. Headed by Dr. Annabelle Morgan-Manalo, a renowned neuroscientist, this division aims to understand the applicable modalities and formulations of cannabinoid-based products that offer the most bioavailable and efficient experiences for markets the world over. Through its work, the company has achieved significant growth, earning over $31.5 million in gross proceeds in the year ended November 2021.

The company’s President and Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”), Luis Merchan, has been keen to share his optimism about its future while acknowledging the strides that his company and each of its divisions have made so far. This was well reflected in the just-concluded Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference, which ran from April 20-21, 2022, in Miami, where he spoke, as well as the Plant Medicine Week conference that was held from April 5-8, 2022, in Malta, where he was the keynote speaker (https://cnw.fm/Znuqg).

Flora Growth still maintains its revenue guidance projection of $35-45 million for the 2022 fiscal year, potentially a 4X growth from 2021. According to the company’s management, this growth will be primarily attributed to its product diversification initiatives, strengthening its supply chain, and its adoption of cost-effective cultivation practices (https://cnw.fm/QTnbx).

As it continues to curate a collection of consumer brands for key market segments in its space, Flora Growth continues to push the envelope from a research and marketing standpoint, showcasing opportunities in the plant-based wellness and lifestyle space, for which it is the arguable leader.

Going further into 2022, Flora seeks to maintain the momentum it started in 2021, from opening brick and mortar stores to distribution agreements with mainstream retail establishments. The company also seeks to further its market reach, as evidenced by its venture into the Colombian market through Tropi, the country’s largest food and beverage distributor.

420 with CNW — Washington State Offers Cannabis Shops Free Security Checks

In the wake of the recent armed robberies targeting marijuana businesses, Washington state has partnered with a private company to give cannabis businesses access to a free security check so that experts can advise the businesses about what specific steps each company needs to strengthen in order to reduce the likelihood of being adversely affected by this crime wave.

This security assessment is an offer from the Liquor and Cannabis Board (“LCB”) of the state, and the program will be implemented by Setracon, a security firm based in Tacoma. Currently, there are 180 retail marijuana businesses registered in Washington. All these firms are eligible to undergo the free security assessment, which has the following objectives;

  • Assessing the possible risks a retail outlet faces
  • Reviewing the specific threats that a particular retail business faces
  • Evaluating and documenting the current steps the business is taking to safeguard itself; provide extra measures that the business can take to beef up security
  • Giving the retailers a detailed report of the findings obtained during the security assessment

This intervention by the LCB comes after at least 50 robberies targeting cannabis shops were reported during the first quarter of this year. One of those robberies resulted in an employee of a cannabis shop being fatally shot by the robbers.

How did things get out of hand? Under current federal law, marijuana businesses are deemed to be illegal and therefore cannot access banking services even though these firms pay hefty federal taxes. This means that the rapidly growing industry is, for the most part, dependent on cash transactions, thus providing criminal elements with an attractive target.

Several attempts have been made to pass cannabis banking legislation so that financial institutions are protected from being  negatively impacted by federal agencies if they accept clients that are state-legal marijuana firms. However, the Senate has blocked each of those attempts to enact an enabling law protecting banks that work with the marijuana industry.

It is in light of this federal inaction that Washington state has elected to take some measures to address the deteriorating security of legitimate marijuana businesses within its jurisdiction. One  of the planned measures includes a series of training activities aimed at addressing the locality specific security challenges that various businesses face. This particular program is scheduled to begin now through August.

These measures will hopefully slow down the rate at which the crime wave is escalating, but the ultimate solution could be ending federal marijuana prohibition or at least allowing banks to work with the players such as American Cannabis Partners in the cannabis industry so that no cash is present in retail shops to serve as a magnet to robbers.

420 with CNW — New Device Could Provide More Accuracy in Measuring Cannabis Impairment

The use of marijuana, whether for medicinal or recreational purposes, has grown rapidly within the United States during the past few years. This growth is said to be due to the wave of legalizations that has swept through several states as well as the changing public attitudes towards this controversial plant. The growing use of marijuana has presented a huge challenge to both law enforcement agencies and employers as they work to detect and prevent cannabis impairment on the roads and at workplaces.

Many have looked to breathalyzers to provide a way to quickly identify someone who is acting under the influence of cannabis. Breathalyzers are familiar technology, and they are easy to use in the field. However, there is currently no verifiable way to link the presence of THC metabolites in the body to a degree of impairment.

This challenge stems from two key factors. First, THC can remain detectable in someone’s body several weeks after they consume marijuana, so a positive test for THC isn’t reliable evidence that a person is impaired. Secondly, different people respond differently when they use marijuana, so having a certain concentration of marijuana in the blood (or whatever sample has been analyzed) isn’t proof beyond reasonable doubt that an individual is impaired.

A new impairment test looks set to settle this debate on how to assess cannabis impairment once and for all. The artificial intelligence (AI)- and VR (virtual reality)-based device is focused on measuring actual impairment rather than on detecting how much THC is present in an individual’s blood, saliva or other biological sample.

The Gaize Cannabis Impairment Test, developed by Gaize AI, seeks to provide video evidence to confirm or rule out marijuana impairment. The person being tested wears a VR headset and performs half a dozen tasks as sensors on the headset monitor the eye movements of the test subject. The logic behind this test is that every substance has a different effect on the eye movements of a person. The tests require approximately five minutes, with an additional two minutes needed to crunch the numbers and provide the results of the impairment test.

Ken Fichtler, founder and CEO of the company, says that his system is up to 90% accurate in detecting impairment, and the machine learning tech it runs on can allow the system to improve its degree of accuracy. He thinks that once the device is widely deployed, the hurdle of getting marijuana federally legalized could be reduced since one of the current challenges in the way of legalization is the difficulty of measuring impairment.

The handy device can also be used to test employees just before their shifts begin, so there is a lot of potential for the usability of this impairment test. These more precise testing methods could enjoy the support of the marijuana industry and its actors such as American Cannabis Partners because the accuracy tests would eliminate the possibility of people being unfairly victimized for using recreational or medical marijuana several days or even months before they were tested.
