UK to Open First Publicly Available Dedicated Cannabis Research Facility
For a change, let’s hear some good news from the United Kingdom after a month that saw two terrorist attacks and now a tragic apartment fire in London where casualties are mounting as we speak.
The good news is that cannabinoid biotechnology company MediPen Ltd. is launching its own dedicated marijuana research facility this summer, and it will provide a platform for anyone looking to utilize its 1,800 square-foot facilities for the purposes of innovation in the area of medicinal cannabis.
As the first biotechnology company to develop a vapor product, MediPen Ltd. has already enjoyed success selling their non-psychoactive CBD vaporizers, which are currently in the process of securing a license from the British Home Office.
Their goal is to import and work with controlled compounds, including THC, for further research.
Torture Victim Seeking U.S. Asylum Faces Deportation for Dropped Pot Charge
Marco Coello was 18 when he was arrested in Caracas Venezuela at a protest against the regime of Nicolás Maduro, successor to the late Hugo Chavez.
Venezuelan police kicked and beat Marco with a golf club, fire extinguisher and tortured him with electric shocks.
After three months, he was released on bail and fled to the United States, where he sought political asylum.
When his asylum interview came up this past April, his lawyer Elizabeth Blandon, an immigration and asylum expert, was optimistic.
Coello’s case of abuse at the hands of the Venezuelan police was so bad that the U.S. State Department included him in their own human rights report on Venezuela in 2015.
“I had this very naïve idea that we were going to walk in there and the officer was going to say, ‘It’s an honor to meet you,’” said Blandon.
