The international cannabis industry makes a lot of noise about equality and diversity, but is that the case? Some prominent female founders from across the sector provide some startling – but wholly necessary – insights in this piece from CannIntelligence.
Big news this past week is that Ghana has legalised medical cannabis! Woot! Woot! The great irony is that this actually happened three years ago (at a government level), but the Ghanaian Supreme Court upheld prohibition – citing ‘legal insufficiencies’ – until now.
(Ok… stay with us on this one) One latex doner kebab costume for sale. Unused. Purchased in 2015 for a ‘cannabis and driving’ public safety campaign. Auction ends 14 August. Bidding starts at $7000. Please direct all questions to the provincial government of Alberta, Canada.
Ah yes… Richard Nixon: the man who kicked the War On Drugs up several notches during his presidency (thanks Controlled Substances Act!). Now, some 50 years later, Green Thumb Industries is ‘reclaiming’ the ruling, calling out Nixon et al to showcase how idiotic it/they is/are.
Rec sales continue to make waves in Missouri! Stats from the ‘Show Me State’ from February (when rec was legalised in the state) onwards show that MO sales are averaging $4 million per day – over half a billion in sales ($592 million) in total.
Got mucho cash? You too can buy your way out of trouble. Apparently some ‘supermodel’ called Gigi Hadid (ed. We know ‘NOTHING’ about fashion… not a stretch to believe if you’ve met us) has been slapped on the wrist for bringing cannabis into the Cayman Islands. And by ‘slapped on the wrist’ we mean ‘fined $1000’.
