In “Canadian’s Caught Doing The Right Thing” News...
For the first time in North American history, Canadian supermarket chain Loblaw and Shoppers Drug Mart, announced that employee benefit plans would now include coverage for medical marijuana. The company employs nearly 200,000 people and represents the largest corporate acceptance of medical cannabis in North America.
This is a major policy change and the first of many Canadian companies that will most likely follow in their footsteps. Last year, Loblaws president and executive chairman, said he could envision his company’s retail outlets dispensing medical marijuana in the near future.
The majority of Canadians can’t get reimbursed for the cost of medical marijuana because insurance companies don’t cover it as standard practice. Yet!!
In “ Do I look thinner to you” News…
A new study, published in Archives of Osteoporosis, found regular cannabis consumers who partook more than five times per month had an on average lower body mass index (BMI), a measure of body fat based on height and weight, when compared to non-users.
The researchers surveyed 4,743 participants nationally between the ages of 20 and 59 to investigate the relationship between cannabis use and various health outcomes.
Previous studies have found cannabis use to be linked to a lower BMI, lower body fat percentage, and smaller waist circumference. Preclinical animal trials even suggest that cannabis can serve as protection against obesity. Researchers believe that cannabis protects against excess fat gain through its interaction with the endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for managing metabolic function. A dysfunctional or overactive endocannabinoid system may contribute to fat accumulation and obesity, and cannabinoids may help keep the system operate properly.
In “Yes, I’m Going to Cover This News Again Because It’s Important” News…
On Tuesday of last week the Transportation Security Administration according to their “What Can I Bring?” web page had officially declared that flying with medical marijuana was okay. Then less than 24 hours later the TSA corrected themselves and switched the positive green checkmark to a negative red X.
The incident has only added to the confusion surrounding whether marijuana users have anything to fear in bringing pot onto a plane. And thus have made some weed travelers extremely paranoid. While others including myself admit to nearly always traveling with pot.
Now let’s break that down for a second, in case you're envisioning me traveling with 20 pounds of cannabis in my carry-on. No, I bring a vape pen or cookies or some other form aside from the flower itself.
And remember here is the s [...]

Big Companies paving the Way for Marijuana Business 2017
Although the federal government intends to introduce legislation paving a way to legalization in 2017, Cannabis in Canada remains illegal for recreational use until legislation is enacted. Police and prosecution services in all Canadian jurisdictions are currently capable of pursuing criminal charges for cannabis (legal term marijuana) possession and for marketing without a license issued by Health Canada. The Superior and appellate courts in Ontario have repeatedly declared Canada's cannabis laws to be of no force and/or effect if a prescription is obtained. The recreational use of marijuana, however, has remained contrary to the Criminal Code.
Since 1997, public opinion polls have found that an increasing majority of Canadians agree with the statement, "Smoking marijuana should not be a criminal offence". A June 2016 national poll conducted by Nanos Research showed that 7 in 10 Canadians are in favour of legalization.
Challenges to marijuana laws at the federal level did not result in the deletion of the appropriate sections from the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. Legalization for personal (non-medical) consumption would need to be legislated, and that is the plan of the Government of Canada, as confirmed in 2015 and more specifically in 2016. The enactment of that legislation will be the concluding point in a long history of attempts to legalize cannabis through the courts. [...]

The Trump Administration has been busy over the last seven weeks. They’ve passed policies that target immigrants and the environment, and well, aside from actual policies, Trump’s tweets have done damage enough. But the White House’s most recent target is something that people from both sides of the aisle can get pissed off about.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer said that the Trump Administration would likely enforce the federal laws against marijuana, though states have been moving toward decriminalizing and legalizing marijuana in recent years. Attorney General Jeff Sessions also hinted that he wants to crack down on cannabis use.
Sessions’ old fashioned way of thinking clashes with the modern movement behind marijuana acceptance—but will this new administration dismantle decades of progress within next four years? Learn more from the video above.

(18+) *LEGAL MEDICAL CANNABIS PATIENT*
Hey Stoners Welcome to The Johno Show I’m your weedtuber host Jonathan. It’s Monday February 6th 2017 so it's time for some 420 news. Our main story tonight is that this new session of Congress is filled with bills to reform federal marijuana laws. But first our other weed news.
In “Would you like your fries Extra Crispy” News…
Garrett Norris, 20, and Meagan Dearborn, 19, were arrested for dealing weed out of a Burger King drive thru. The two worked at the Epping, New Hampshire Burger King. A sting operation was put in place by Police Chief Mike Wallace and once enough evidence was substantiated they moved in with the arrest.
In order to purchase the pot all a buyer had to do was drive up and ask for “Nasty Boy.” Norris’s alias. “Once it was verified he was working, they had to ask for their fries extra crispy.” An exchange of cash through the drive-through window and boom you had pot with burger order.
In “You know we’re going legit” news...
When Apple filed a patent on July 20th in what looks like their entry into vaporizers for the cannabis industry.
The patent doesn’t mention cannabis specifically, but the device, which features a movable heating plate that sits just above the substance and slides downward as the substance is vaporized does seem consistent for vaporization of marijuana. In fact, the design of the device looks like it would work with both flower and extracts. It also seems more suited to oils or solid extracts.
In “Daddy that man smells like weed” News…
Perfume company Xyrena is launching what it calls the first "strain-specific cannabis perfumes." Frequent shoppers of Spencer’s Gifts know that Marijuana perfumes aren't new but Xyrena is trying to take a classier approach.
Xyrena is releasing three unisex perfumes based off the following strains strains: Blue Dream, OG Kush and Space Cake.
In “Set It Free! Set It Free!” News...
The wait is finally over for the citizens of Maine to toke up legally. Maine’s legalization law allows regular possession of up to 2 1/2 ounces of marijuana and the cultivation of 6 flowering plants, 6 immature plants and an unlimited number of seedlings.
Maine’s legalization law has come up against the hostility of Governor Paul LePage. Lepage argued that voters didn’t understand the legalization law. He even signed a moratorium on the implementation of regulated cannabis sales.
But now finally, Maine residents will enjoy the benefits of ending cannabis regulations. Law enforcement will be better utilized by reducing the number of citations, arrests, prosecutions and jailings for cannabis offenses. Thousands of new jobs will help stimulate the local economy and millions in new tax revenue will be generated for important social services.
Finally our top story…
Two new bills set to reform federal marijuana laws were introduced in Congress this week. Republican Congressman Morgan Griffith from Virginia introduced H. [...]
