California's next cannabis battle may be coming to a city near you – Capital Public Radio News

“It cheapens a high-end beach town,” said Charlene Harding, 59, a retired government worker who moved to Manhattan Beach two decades ago. Though she has “never even puffed,” she said she did not care if others smoked — within reason: “I hate when I go to the beach and it smells like skunk.”

The opposition is far from universal, however, despite what city officials say they have heard.

David Sulaski, 54, a retired investment banker who has lived in Manhattan Beach for six years, said the city was full of “fun-loving people” who would embrace dispensaries.

“This is a community that likes to have a good time,” he said as he walked his dog down Manhattan Avenue in the city’s commercial center. “I don’t know why we make decisions that fly in the face of those things.”

Sulaski, who uses cannabis “every day that I can” and gets it delivered, said it was silly to make people go elsewhere to buy cannabis when Manhattan Beach could benefit from the tax revenue.

“We don’t expect

Monroe will have highest rate of medical marijuana dispensaries in the state – Hamilton Journal News

There are 59 dispensaries operating statewide now, including nine in this region: two in Butler County, one in Warren County, three in Montgomery County, two in Clark County and one in Greene County.

Strawberry Fields opened at 300 N. Main St. in Monroe in the fall of 2019. Jimmy Gould, the owner, said he sold that business last year and it’s called Columbia Care.

Two of the provisional licenses in Monroe were granted to Shangri-La Dispensary Ohio and one to Deaver Ohio. No locations have been announced for Shangri-La, but Deaver will be located at 1312 Ohio 63, according to the Ohio Department of Pharmacy.

The first Ohio licenses for dispensaries were issued in 2018 and 2019, said Justin Sheridan, the board’s director of medical marijuana operations.

Keith Funk and Christina McElfresh, Monroe’s mayor and vice mayor, respectively, said dispensary companies may be attracted to the city due to its available retail space and easy access off Interstate 75.

Funk said it’s important for Monroe to be “business friendly,” regardless of whether those in the city agree or disagree with the type of business.

He’s surprised the state would aware four dispensary licenses in such a small city like Monroe.

“Is that terrible?” he asked. “I don’t

U.S. Congress Pushes Cannabis Protections For Athletes In New Spending Bills

Cannabis has never been more accessible. With its popularity skyrocketing, many professional athletes have been outspoken regarding their use of marijuana.

Megan Rapinoe, an Olympic gold medalist, two-time Women’s World Cup soccer champion and 2019 FIFA Women’s World Player of the Year told Benzinga earlier that she ventured into cannabis in a search of a “healthier, more natural option for pain management, sleep aid, relaxation while flying, and general recovery.”

How CBD Can Help Treat Your Migraines

Unlike headaches, migraines can be hard to treat. The common consensus is usually to lie in a dark room with an ice pack as your only companion. Still, even then, that’s not guaranteed to work. Everybody reacts differently to the variety of remedies used to treat migraines — especially since this type of headache is categorized into two types — a “classical migraine,” where you experience the sensation of an aura before it comes on, and the “common migraine” which doesn’t produce that symptom, according to Web MD.

In recent years, one solution has quickly become a popular remedy for all types of aches, pains, and other disorders (via the New York Times) — including migraines.

New York’s Conditional Adult Use Processor License

On the morning of the Cannabis Control Board’s (CCB) June 23, 2022 meeting, the Office of Cannabis Management (OCM) uploaded the meeting agenda, which included this important tidbit: a resolution approving a conditional adult-use processor license and opening an application window for said license. This is obviously big news, in that it provides the link between the already issued conditional cannabis cultivation licenses and conditional retail dispensary licenses.

In introducing the conditional process license resolution, CCB Chairwoman Tremaine Wright dropped another huge piece of news: the OCM expects adult-use sales to begin through conditional retail dispensary licensees in the fall of 2022. Adult use cannabis sales taking place in just a few months seems exceedingly optimistic, given that: (i) no conditional retail dispensary licenses have been awarded, (ii) DASNY just announced a management team for the Social Equity Cannabis Investment Program (more on that later); (iii) design-build contractors who submitted bids based on the conditional retail dispensary RFP have not been selected; (iv) the conditional retail dispensary locations have not yet been lease (as per CCB member Adam Perry during the meeting); and (v) retail store buildouts typically take more than a few weeks (especially in New York City).

With that said, more

Flying High with TSA: The Rules for Traveling This Summer with Pot

If you are traveling by air this summer and thinking about bringing your favorite cannabis products along for the flight, you’ll probably want to check with U.S. Transportation Security Administration to see if it will allow cannabis through airport security. Unfortunately, TSA’s website is not entirely clear on its marijuana policy.

“Marijuana and certain cannabis infused products, including some Cannabidiol (CBD) oil, remain illegal under federal law,” the TSA’s website states. “TSA officers are required to report any suspected violations of law to local, state or federal authorities.

The website adds: “TSA’s screening procedures are focused on security and are designed to detect potential threats to aviation and passengers. Accordingly, TSA security officers do not search for marijuana or other illegal drugs, but if any illegal substance is discovered during security screening, TSA will refer the matter to a law enforcement officer.”
