(CNN) An act to legalize the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes was passed by German parliamentarians. They voted unanimously in favor of the new bill, first approved by the country's cabinet in May 2016. On Thursday, votes were unanimous in favor of the new "cannabis as medicine" law, which will come into effect March 2017.

Canadians and Americans spent US$56.4 billion on marijuana in 2016, and 88 per cent of that spending was illegal, according to a new report.

Cannabis billboards in Sask. ‘poking the bear’: marijuana dispensary owner

With just one word — Erbachay — is raising a lot of eyebrows around Saskatchewan. The ads, displayed in Regina and Saskatoon, show a green leaf with the word “Erbachay” and “Canada Wide Delivery.” The company behind the signs are a Vancouver-based medical marijuana dispensary that sells and delivers weed. “By putting these billboards up, we’re trying to help that process. Make it a little more normalized, make it more accessible,” Erbachay Health Centers president Darcy Delainey said. Erbachay isn’t a licensed producer for cannabis with Health Canada but within Vancouver city limits, Delainey said he can sell medical marijuana. The billboards are a way to educate the public and hopefully destigmatize weed, he [...]

Tetra BioPharma (GRPOF): Standing on the Right Side of Regulation (Plus New Interview)

The cannabis industry could reach $50 billion in annual revenue by 2026, according to Cowen & Co., but capitalizing on the drug’s enormous potential is not easy. The United States government has permitted individual states to legalize the drug, but the Drug Enforcement Administration recently cracked down on cannabidiol (CBD) makers and President Trump’s cabinet picks are opponents of legalization.
