What are the Health Benefits of CBD?
It is widely believed and accepted that the famous G13 cannabis originated from the United States government (DEA, FBI, CIA), who allegedly ran a cannabis research institute in rural Mississippi in the 1960's and 70's. Reports were made that a "rebel" government worker stole a clone of a pure Afghani strain of cannabis and distributed it to various connections around the United States. This is mostly untrue however. What is known is that a man who went by the name of Sandy Weinstein had a connection at the government funded cannabis research facility conducted at the University of Mississippi. When a man by the name of Neville Schoenmakers one way or another convinced Mr. Weinstein to persuade his friend at the lab to obtain a strain of prime cannabis. It is said that there was a batch of pure Indica Afghani strains of marijuana. These strains were labeled G1 all the way to G23. The G13 strain that was obtained, cloned and distributed by Schoenmakers is said to have been of much higher quality than any of the other Afghanis.
Court: Firing Someone for Medical Marijuana Use Is Illegal Discrimination
The Supreme Judicial Court ruled on Monday in Massachusetts that voter approval of medical marijuana means that employers can no longer simply fire employees who test positive for THC, if the workers can prove they are consuming it with a doctor’s recommendation.
The ruling comes from the case of Cristina Barbuto who suffers from Crohn’s Disease and was using MMJ several times a week to help ease the pain.
Barbuto, who had informed her new bosses of her illness and her MMJ usage, got fired after only one day on the job when she tested positive for marijuana.
She was told by the human resources department of Advantage Sales and Marketing (ASM) that, “we follow federal law, not state law.”
Alaska Marijuana Regulators to Revisit Onsite Pot Use Debate
JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Alaska marijuana regulators plan to revive debate over onsite use of marijuana in retail cannabis shops.
In February, the Marijuana Control Board scuttled proposed rules that would have allowed onsite use of marijuana in authorized stores, citing skittishness over how President Donald Trump’s Department of Justice would view marijuana.
Marijuana is legal for recreational use in Alaska and seven other states but illegal at the federal level.
But the board later voted to re-open the debate. Proposals are expected to be discussed at a Friday meeting.
