‘Tis NOT YET the season to be jolly (though rec users may beg to differ…). But it soon will be. Just a couple weeks until a good chunk of the world stops to celebrate a hijacked Pagan winter festival through hedonistic indulgence. 

A break will be welcome for most – but the world of cannabis keeps a-turning. Here’s what’s got terpene-tasting tongues wagging this past week. 

Bundestag In A Bind?

The German cannabis saga rages on. It looks like the German powers-that-be won’t vote on adult use until next year now. But luckily, that isn’t too far off. Could 2024 be the year that it actually happens?\

Green Light For UK Clinical Trial

Could a new clinical trial in the UK be the tipping point in getting medical cannabis available on the NHS? Despite medical being legalised in Britain back in 2018, there have been no patient trials per se. Until now, that is…

An End To The Danish Dream?

For the last 50 years, Copenhagen’s anarchist haven, Christiania, has been a magnet for those looking for an alternative way of life. But the escalation of gang violence and government pressure to crack down on illegal substances, could put this Pot Paradise’s future in jeopardy.

US Banks To Follow Suit?

Calls last week by US senator, Raphael Warnock (D-GA) for banks and financial institutions to outline their plans for cannabis banking have been met with, well, radio silence. His willingness to back SAFER banking legislation hasn’t garnered the support he’d been seeking. 

Kg and Oz

New data published by Australia’s Office of Drug Control shows that the nation exported just over 1,500 kg of cannabis in 2022. While the lion’s share (935 kg) was shipped to Germany, the UK was next in line (407 kg), followed by New Zealand with 167 kg. France, by contrast, received just 1 kg of Aussie weed.
