Another Monday, thermidorks<! Let’s start as we mean to go on with some of the choicest bits of bud hitting the newswires from this past week.

And in other news… heading to Product Earth here in the UK next month? See you there! Hit us up if you’re gonna be exhibiting, speaking, dancing, yoga-ing etc.

Catcha on the flipside!

Dwindling Diversity?

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.

You're 'Ghana' Love This…

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.

Kebab Kostume... Anyone?

(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. 

Cleaning Up Dick's Mess

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. 

‘Show Me’ The Money

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.

Oh Yes She Ha-did!

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’.
