NEWS Cannabis Companies Donate $50K to Wildfire Victims
A couple of cannabis companies under the “CannaCraft” brand are stepping up to help those in need. Any medical marijuana patients who were displaced or evacuated because of the Northern California fires are eligible to receive complimentary cannabis products. When cannabis companies donate $50K to wildfire victims, it’s hard to argue that legal cannabis is causing harm.
Many victims of the wildfires have lost their homes, including members of CannaCraft’s staff. Their growing facility is in Northern California, so the impact of the wildfire hit close to home.
Over 120,000 acres of land have burned and upwards of 25,000 residents have been evacuated. Thousands of homes and businesses were lost, and there are still hundreds of missing and injured people out there.
CannaCraft’s manufacturing facility in Santa Rosa was fortunately unaffected and remains operational. The brand claims they “are committed to continuing to serve our patients and helping rebuild” the community. Products made out of their facility, like AbsoluteXtracts vape pens and Be Kind Flowers, will be gifted to medical marijuana patients hurting from the damage caused by the fire.

U.S. Army to Grant More Marijuana Waivers
The powers that be have permitted the U.S. Army to grant more marijuana waivers. The decision comes at a critical time for the United States’ Armed Forces. The Army has a goal of 80,000 newly recruited soldiers. According to military sources, the Army plans to meet their recruitment goal by accepting prospective soldiers who would otherwise be considered less than desirable—including those who have admitted to smoking weed.
If you don’t know much about the recruitment process of the United States Army, here is a very basic explanation.
The first step is to take an exam called the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery. Then, prospective soldiers must pass a physical examination, including a drug screening. The third step is a meeting with a service enlistment counselor to discuss your potential career in the Armed Forces, and then finally, the fourth step is to take an oath.
If you’ll notice, the first step towards enlisting is taking the exam. This is designed to weed through poorly qualified potentials to build a stronger, more efficient military. There are those with lower test scores who get in though; they’re known as Category Four. But they only make up a small percentage of recruited soldiers.
That number, however, is growing.

A Spot of Weed for the British?
LONDON - Members of Parliament and marijuana activists had a pot tea party in front of Parliament Tuesday to protest against medical marijuana being criminalized. The party was put together by the United Patients Alliance, which is an organization that advocates for medical marijuana to treat people suffering from multiple sclerosis and other illnesses. Three Members of Parliament joined the party in support of legalization including Layla Moran, Paul Flynn and Tonia Antoniazzi.
It was a proper tea party including a spread of scones and cakes, all infused with cannabis, of course. The current law for possession of marijuana is up to five years in prison, but that didn’t stop activists from lighting up doobies on the lawn outside of Parliament.
