420 with CNW – Marijuana Legalization Bill Introduced in Pennsylvania Senate

Lawmakers in Pennsylvania have renewed their efforts for recreational cannabis legalization. The Senate Bill 350 was introduced on October 15 by Senator Daylin Leach and Senator Sharif Street. The purpose of the bill is to allow marijuana home delivery and the expungement of past marijuana criminal charges. Within the next 12 months, the supporters forecast that the bill will generate 500 million dollars in tax revenue.

The legislation also has a policy that allows permits for growing marijuana for personal use as well as the establishment of lounges where people can consume cannabis legally.

Senator Street said that legalizing weed will be the end of the prohibition era. He further said that it is high time Keystone State joined the emerging marijuana economy by legalizing recreational marijuana. Consumption of pot is not a crime when adults use it responsibly, he asserted.

Senator Leach said that the marijuana policy in Pennsylvania is cruel, irrational, and expensive. He also noted that the war on marijuana destroyed the lives of many youths while at the same time wasting millions of taxpayer money.

Senator Leach feels that it is high time the state government stopped arresting young kids and bankrolling violent drug cartels. He also noted that the process of legalizing adult-use marijuana would be challenging, but he is optimistic since the state previously approved medical marijuana.

Senator Leach’s press release outlined several points in his proposal. It stated that people with limited resources in the state would be issued permits that give them little or no barrier to entering the marijuana industry. People with past marijuana convictions would be cleared, those whose charges are pending would be dismissed, and custodial sentences would be reduced to a fine.

In the first fiscal year of marijuana sales, the tax revenue generated, which is estimated to be $500 million, would be allocated to school districts. The spending of the appropriated money would be at the discretion of each school district where they may build more schools, employ more teachers, or provide local tax relief to the locals in the region.

Only people who are 21 years and above are allowed to use marijuana, according to the bill. The proposed law also has provisions regarding the issuance of home delivery permits, companies conducting deliveries on behalf of other companies and dispensaries are permitted to deliver their products using any form of transportation such as cars, bicycles or public transit. And it also allows people to cultivate up to 10 plants for personal use in their homes.

Despite the public support for marijuana legalization, an uphill battle awaits Senate Bill 350 because, in Pennsylvania, the political leadership does not favor marijuana reforms. Past efforts to legalize adult-use marijuana failed due to a lack of bipartisan support.

Industry watchers are convinced that cannabis companies like Canopy Rivers Inc. (TSX: RIV) (OTC: CNPOF) and Earth Science Tech Inc. (OTCQB: ETST) are hoping that the people of Pennsylvania can finally be allowed to access legal pot.

420 with CNW – UK Parliamentary Committee Calls for Drug Decriminalization

A United Kingdom parliamentary Committee is calling for the decriminalization of drug possession. It is also requesting the government to establish places where people can smoke marijuana as this will go a long way in preventing death from drug overdoses.

On Monday, the Scottish Affairs Committee concluded that instead of the UK government viewing drug use as a criminal justice challenge, they should address it as a public health issue. This is after they consulted with health professionals, government agencies and scholars, as well as visiting other countries such as Portugal, whose drug policy reforms are advanced.

In a press release, the chair of the Scottish Affairs Committee (SAC), MP Pete Wishart, said that while conducting the inquiries, the panel heard devastating tales of how drug use is causing pain and suffering to the citizens. The people further observed that if any other illness were causing the death other than drugs, the government would have termed it as a public health issue and taken immediate action to minimize the incidences.

Wishart said that criminal justice has failed in curbing drug use. According to the SAC, the UK government should transfer the responsibility of developing drug policy from the Home Office to the Department for Health and Social Care.

Decriminalization of drugs is a move to try and solve the issue of drug use by reducing the stigma surrounding drug use and addiction and at the same time, encouraging people to go to rehab.

Last month, the Health and Social Care Committee said that drugs should not be categorized as a criminal justice matter. The panel further noted that the government should set up safe consumption sites and access to the anti-overdose medication, naloxone, should be extended. This makes the UK Scottish Affairs Committee the second in supporting drug decriminalization.

The establishment of safe consumption sites, for instance, like the one in Glasgow, would help in reducing the number of deaths caused by drug overdoses. They can also act a means through which the users can seek further help by, for instance, identifying the reason why they are using drugs. Safe consumption sites could help in fighting the drug crisis in Scotland, said the panel.

The government has been ignoring evidence of the importance of improving the drug policy. However, to reduce drug use and loss of life, the government must listen to the advice of the experts, starting with the committee’s report.

Drug decriminalization is gaining support because last month, the ruling party in Scotland voiced its support for the change in policy.

A report urging the government to work together with the provinces, municipalities, and law enforcement agencies to decriminalize drugs was released by the House of Commons Committee on Health.

It is believed that cannabis industry actors like Earth Science Tech Inc. (OTCQB: ETST) and Dama Financial see this growing interest in decriminalizing marijuana as the first steps towards realizing that the substance was unjustifiably demonized in the past.

420 with CNW – California Governor Signs Law Allowing Medical Marijuana on K-12 Campuses

In some California school districts, parents can now bring medical marijuana to their children in K-12 campuses; this is according to a new bill signed into law by Governor Gavin Newson. Last year, Governor Jerry Brown had barred the same bill.

The bill which was signed late Wednesday states that, if the school board permits access, parents can administer medical marijuana that is not in the form of vaping or smoking products to the students on the campus premises.

Governor Newson who was among the first proposers of the 2016 recreational cannabis legalization, overruled the opposition by law enforcement groups and signed the bill.

In his rejection message, Governor Brown had previously said that allowing the use of medical marijuana in schools would expose the youth to the drug and the probability of them using medical cannabis for all ailments was high.

Senator Jerry Hill (D-San Mateo) supported the bill saying that medical marijuana is vital as it can help hundreds of students with certain illnesses such as epilepsy. Besides the use of cannabis oil, creams and pills would be effective ways of treatment since vaping and smoking weed in schools is prohibited.

However, before parents administer medical marijuana to their children, they must obtain a doctor’s recommendation to administer weed on campus.

A member of the Americans Against Legalizing Marijuana, Scott Chipman said that the bill is a stunt since the Food and Drug Administration has already approved medical marijuana for epileptic disorders taken morning and evening. Therefore, there is no valid reason for taking medical marijuana at school since it is more convenient before and after school, accoding to Chipman.

Jackie Goldberg, a member of the Los Angeles unified school district, voiced her support for the bill and said that she would talk to the health officials in the region to recommend a policy on the same. She further added that the medicine should be available when the need arises and if the student’s family gets a medical marijuana prescription.

The new law will help students like JoJo attend school. According to his mother, Karina Garcia, JoJo takes medical cannabis tinctures to manage debilitating seizures that have prevented him from attending school. The new law is nicknamed JoJo’s Act by Hill.

On Thursday, Hill said Governor Newsom lifted all barriers for students who can only use medical pot to treat or manage their medical disabilities when he signed JoJo’s Act.

The bill was opposed by the majority of Republican lawmakers who said that it would promote drug abuse. The California Police Chief was also in opposition, saying that the top priority should be to prevent young adults under the age of 21 from accessing any marijuana products.

The new law goes against the rule that states that possession or consumption of medical marijuana should not be within 1,000 feet of any school premises, which required the parent to administer the medicine out of the school premises.

If a school district permits the use of medical marijuana, the guardian should first check-in after arriving and take strict precaution not to expose other children to the products.

California is among the eight states allowing the use of medical marijuana on K-12 campuses, a move that experts believe is regarded by cannabis companies like Earth Science Tech Inc. (OTCQB: ETST) and Geyser Brands Inc. (TSX.V: GYSR) as a progressive step that all states where medical marijuana is legal should emulate.

420 with CNW – Colorado Research Investigate Marijuana’s Ecological Footprint

The Department of Health and Environment in Denver, Colorado, is studying marijuana’s ecological footprint. Colorado Public Radio reported that researchers are conducting the studies not because the citizens of Colorado are releasing too much weed smoke into the air, but because they want to how the marijuana crop affects the environment.

An environment consultant with CPDHE, Katilin Urso, said that Colorado is not adhering to the ozone standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency. Ozone is a type of gas made of oxygen atoms, and it is hazardous in the atmosphere. In Colorado, ozone gas is rated as the highest pollutant, and this prompted the researchers to probe into what is contributing to excess emission of the ozone gas.

When Kyle Clark spoke to Urso, she said that the reason why the researchers are looking at the marijuana plant is that it produces terpenes (volatile organic compounds), which give the plant its unique scent.

When terpenes mix with other air pollutants and the sun, they add to the dangerous ozone layers which can make the air unfit for people to breathe.

According to Urso, the question most researchers are attempting to answer is the extent to which the marijuana sector is adding to the increases in the damage to the ozone layer. Moreover, how much terpenes are released into the atmosphere for each pound of marijuana grown? Also, they want to identify ways to develop environmental-friendly practices to be adopted by the marijuana industry.

Urso said the reason they are studying marijuana is that it is one of the many plants that emit volatile organic compounds in the environment. They are studying cannabis because of zoning and regulations, citing that the Denver metro area has the highest level of pollution and population, and is also where most marijuana legal growers are located. The marijuana industry and the growers are cooperating with the state in terms of data collection.

The Department of Health in Colorado’s primary purpose of this study is to determine the specific components being released into the air by the marijuana plant. This is because the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) failed to quantify the effect of marijuana on the environment in the legalized states.

Morgan Fox says that he has been aware of the research which started in 2018 and is to end in September 2019 with the findings being released the coming summer. He says that he supports the study, although he does not know precisely how marijuana is contributing to the ozone depletion problem. To contribute positively to the environment, as an industry, they have adopted better lighting and planting techniques. They have also introduced a recycling system where customers can recycle the packaging through proper sanitization.

In 2011, the Department of Health conducted similar research on beer craft industries. Although they were causing much damage to the environment, the department suggested more efficient ways such as recycling bags used in production. They also warned against spilling beer during packaging because it releases ethanol upon evaporation, which is bad for the environment.

Analysts expect industry players like Earth Science Tech Inc. (OTCQB: ETST) and Geyser Brands Inc. (TSX.V: GYSR) to eagerly await the findings of this research since more light would be shed on an aspect of the marijuana industry that hadn’t been scientifically investigated.
