SOCIAL JUSTICE & CANNABIS LAWSJulie Fulton @ 2019-07-17 13:36:02 -0500
Social justice advocates are fighting for decriminalization of cannabis. Are cannabis laws too punitive and do they target people of color? Twenty four states and many municipalities have either partially or fully decriminalized flower. As with most cannabis laws, they vary from state to state. Possessing a small stash for personal consumption might mean no arrest, no prison time nor criminal record depending on where you are.
LEAN IN, LISTEN UP AND LEARN:
- What major human rights organizations champion cannabis legalization.
- How coast-to-coast cannabis legalization tamps down on the black market and protects cannasumers from the dangers of illicit product.
- What states still ban cannabis AND hemp.
“…they’re focusing on putting people away, locking people up in prison, making sure that they throw away the key for anyone who is a serious offender instead of trying to come up with proactive programs… .”
The Cannabis Catch-Up is sponsored by Boveda, the leader in two-way humidity control for buds. Subscribe to the Boveda Cannabis YouTube Channel. Or listen to Lance Lambert’s insights live every Monday at 4:20 pm EST on The Todd Shapiro Show (SiriusXM Channel 167).
CANNABIS CONVERSATION STARTERS:
- Groups such as the ACLU, NAACP, and Drug Policy Alliance are calling on Congress to end the so-called “War on Drugs.” See which states have already decriminalized cannabis. (5:11)
- It’s legal to fly with hemp-based CBD oil, but laws still vary from state to state—that means know the cannabis laws if you’re leaving a legal rec state on a road trip. (6:28)
- You might want to detour around Idaho, Kansas, Nebraska and South Dakota, where both cannabis and hemp are totally illegal. (7:09)
- Overusing cannabis versus overdosing. Moderation is key, even with legal rec, my friends. (9:58)
- The only reported death directly related to cannabis consumption occurred when a cancer patient ingested tainted flower, contracted a rare fungal disease and died. (10:43)
CULTIVATORS LOOK FOR A PRECISE, EASY WAY TO KEEP CANNABIS SAFE
Controlling moisture in dried flower can be a challenge for cannabis companies. Lose too much moisture to evaporation and the chemical composition of cannabis flower degrades as it dries out. But over-humidifying buds creates a breeding ground for mold and microbes.
THE SOLUTION TO MOLD & EVAPORATION PROBLEMS IS TWO-WAY HUMIDITY CONTROL
Boveda’s two-way humidity control adds or removes pure water vapor as needed from the headspace of a cannabis container to maintain a constant, predetermined level of relative humidity (RH).
Just slip in Boveda with a cure, inventoried product and packaged flower. Both Boveda 62% RH and Boveda 58% RH keep dried flower in the RH sweet spot. This RH level inhibits mold growth, protects potency and maximizes the economic value of flower.
Top cannabis brands use patented Boveda two-way humidity control, including Aurora, Humboldt Legends and MedMen. And now Boveda is building relationships within the cannabis space in South America, Australia, Europe, Africa and Asia, too. “These partners see the value of two-way humidity control. And how much good Boveda brings to the cannabis industry,” Lance Lambert said.
Indeed, Boveda is partnering with cannabis professionals on all continents, except Antarctica. But if anyone at McMurdo Station is looking to keep cannabis from drying out, shoot Boveda an email.
