“Relatively, cannabis is a lot safer drug than alcohol in terms of physical health consequences, risk of dependence, and harms to society. But inevitably with more increased use, we might see more harmful effects emerging,”

Professor Finbar O'Callaghan's career relies on his self-promoted interest in £multi-million clinical trials of experimental drugs for childhood epilepsy. No surprise he's blocking the cheaper, safer alternative, cannabis, which has been used to control seizures successfully for centuries.

"Levi's has found a way to make hemp fibers soft and able to blend with cotton, but in a way that uses significantly less water than the process used to turn hemp plants into a rough material. It is continuing to work on improving the quality of its cottonized-hemp, to the point where it can be nearly half of a cotton-blend for most apparel, as well as fully hemp for certain products. And in five years it expects "a 100% cottonized-hemp garment that is all hemp and feels all cotton."

"Cannabis is much demonised, but when compared to other intoxicants the differences are stunning. Dropping all of that comparison, cannabis on its own is looking to be relatively harmless by most measures of research. Cannabis benefits outweigh its risks even strictly viewed as a recreational intoxicant—medical uses notwithstanding."

"Cancer survivor and CBD medical consumer Felicia Palmer is taking a swing at the anti-cannabis establishment. Ms. Palmer and her new company, Cannaramic Media, Inc., are commencing federal, civil action against Facebook, Inc., after a series of ads were rejected on the platforms, and the company’s follower page was disabled temporarily. Ms. Palmer and Mr. Holland explained that they see a “pattern of censorship and suppression of information and content pertaining to legal uses of cannabis across Facebook’s platform as well as that of the popular social media app, Instagram, also owned by Facebook.”

"The crackdown on the open sale of cannabis flowers online and in high street stores is here. Some people are facing potential charges of supplying a class B drug and a possible jail sentence. The people selling cannabis flowers and claiming they are legal are not heroes, campaigners or warriors in the war on prohibition. They are confidence tricksters, seizing the opportunity to make a quick buck by cheating and endangering their customers. Compliant businesses operating responsibly within the legal cannabis sector will help to drive reform. Blurring the lines between legal and illegal products will delay progress."
