Curio Wellness goes dumpster diving, New York considers not having a black market, weed can kill you now and new licenses issued in Colorado

It’s onerous to complain concerning the information when a MSO will get caught promoting dumpster weed. However right here we go.

Time is a treasured commodity right here at Marijuana Enterprise, so with regards to information briefs, we like let the extra incremental protection fall to the wayside.

Here’s a candid, probably even antagonistic, recap of the tales from the previous week that we didn’t cowl in full element:

Dumpster doobies​

In the meantime in Maryland, Curio Wellness was fined not sufficient cash ($26,000) for digging weed out of a dumpster and promoting it to its prospects. In response to an announcement from the corporate, the product was within the dumpster for less than 41 hours and 9 minutes, which in fact doesn’t violate the generally held “41-hours-and-10-minute rule” the place cooties would have penetrated the packaging. Nevertheless, some dumpster juice did cowl the unique packaging and the product needed to be repackaged earlier than it was bought to unwitting prospects. An worker emailed administration that promoting trash for consumption wasn’t a good suggestion, to which a now-terminated supervisor disagreed.

Governor proposes implementing regulation​

New York Governor Kathy Hochul swung by New York Metropolis to make the slight suggestion that possibly somebody with authority ought to think about shutting down the innumerable illicit hashish shops within the metropolis. To be sincere, I didn’t know she needed to ask the police to answer felony exercise. However I assume that’s what occurs once you largely ignore a rising infestation of unlawful shops since 2021. It’s not like these guys are going to go, “Oh, that’s sufficient untaxed revenue for me, time to go. Byeeee.” So now the state has to drum up assist to pay for this huge black-market enema. The one query after that’s the place does all that Oklahoma weed go now?

Weed can kill you now​

Utilizing hashish every day will increase your probability of a coronary heart assault by 25% and a 42% larger threat of strokes, according to a new study completely timed to reach one month after the conclusion of “Dry January” and the litany of articles illustrating how hashish is a more healthy various to booze. Nevertheless, the examine revealed by researchers from Massachusetts Normal Hospital didn’t actually specify if hashish use really brought about these points or in the event that they had been preexisting, which appears essential. Both method, one other considered one of life’s joys is at the least linked to probably killing you. Have enjoyable spinning that one.

Town of Brighton, Colorado, has mulled it over for about 10 years and determined to get in on this complete marijuana craze. I imply there’s being fashionably late to the get together after which there’s being so late that you simply’re really interrupting the few hungover individuals nonetheless on the home who are actually busy scrubbing puke off the ground and regretting each resolution they made the earlier night time. Nonetheless, it’s excellent news for the 4 licensees opening in one of many state’s final holdout communities. Better of luck to all of them.

Least interesting of the week​

All proper, just a few fast housekeeping earlier than all of us get out of right here: The Weekly “Meh” (title topic to alter at any level I really feel prefer it) is taking two weeks off so I can keep away from sitting in a darkened room in entrance of a pc for 40 hours per week. We’ll speak once more round March 22.

Not the worst week for parody (thanks Curio Wellness), however simply because there’s no stinking logs on the floor, that doesn’t imply the hashish media litterbox is by any means clear. This week’s not-so-buried treasures embody: Illinois planning to take steps ahead with social fairness program; Verano Holdings studies file income for 2023; and a white couple from Pasadena, California, is screwing up social fairness applications in a number of states. And in that order: At this level, Illinois might do nothing and it could nonetheless really feel like a step ahead for its social fairness program; Who brags about dropping $113 million, certain it’s a file, but it surely’s a extremely dangerous one; and screwing up social progress is a customized prosperous {couples} in Pasadena maintain dearly, please be respectful of their tradition.
