(Antigua Observer) After being in existence for over than two years, the Antigua and Barbuda Medicinal Cannabis Authority (MCA) handed over its first official cannabis production licence yesterday. The company, GROW Antigua – a joint initiative between Itopia Life Antigua, the National Asset Management Company (NAMCO) and Rastafari Food For Life (RFFL) – was duly licensed during a ceremony at its facility in Seatons. Present at the ceremony was Prime Minister Gaston Browne who spoke about the benefits this new venture will bring to the country, the main being the expected 10 percent contribution to the local economy once the industry is up and running. Browne also added that it was a “proud occasion for him personally” as he has witnessed the Rastafarian community being castigated, for more than 50 years, over the use of cannabis. This venture, he said, will now aid in unifying the Rastafarian community with the general public after years of discrimination. READ THE FULL STORY>>> https://antiguaobserver.com/

(Marijuana Moment) Illinois’s cannabis industry is growing up fast, with adult-use recreational cannabis sales expected to hit $1 billion by year-end. In March alone, Illinoisans spent $110 million on recreational marijuana. Todd Maisch, president and CEO of the Illinois Chamber of Commerce, said one factor contributing to Illinois’ explosive growth is that most neighboring states haven’t legalized marijuana yet.

(Architectural Digest) When we consider perfect pairings, such classic combinations as chocolate and peanut butter, black and white, and Snoopy and Woodstock come to mind. However, there’s something to be said about those wildly unforeseen unions that both celebrate and embrace the unexpected. We’re talking about cannabis and design, an unpredictable fusion that’s sweeping across the country, one progressive state at a time.

(Green Market Report) Job growth for the United States in April 2021 might not have quite matched expectations with a disappointing increase of 266,000 jobs and an unemployment rate rise for the first time since 2020, but executive search and staffing firm Cannabiz Team’s latest Cannabis Industry Salary Guide for Q2 2021 tells a different story for the cannabis market. With 320,000 full-time cannabis jobs in the U.S., the cannabis industry ranks as the fastest-growing industry in America.

(New York Post) A number of White House staffers were asked to resign or demoted for past marijuana use — regardless of whether those employees had been in one of the 14 states where the drug is legal, according to a report. The Biden administration had required workers to disclose past marijuana use on a background check form, but told some new hires that it would “overlook” those who answered yes, the Daily Beast reported. Despite this, White House director of management and administration Anne Filipic reportedly led a series of one-on-one calls with staffers this month, asking those who admitted to past marijuana use to resign or be placed in a remote work program.

(Associated Press) Jamaica is running low on ganja. Heavy rains followed by an extended drought, an increase in local consumption and a drop in the number of marijuana farmers have caused a shortage in the island’s famed but largely illegal market that experts say is the worst they’ve seen.

(Green Entrepreneur) The prosperous cannabis industry has long faced significant barriers to obtaining financial services. For example, as of June 2020, only 695 banks and credit unions were servicing marijuana-related businesses, according to the latest report from the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), a bureau of the U.S. Department of the Treasury. This despite the fact that the North America legal cannabis market was worth $16 billion in 2020. READ THE FULL STORY >>> https://www.greenentrepreneur.com/article/364202

(Forbes) Every Sunday, EZ’s Dispensary sends its weekly menu of bud via text message, offering strains like AK-47 and Girl Scout Cookies, to thousands of people in New York City. Customers respond with their order—quarter, half, full ounce—and their address. Pretty soon, a dealer in a rental car pulls up to complete the sale. All of this is illegal, but weed delivery is part of the city’s fabric—some New Yorkers can get cannabis delivered to their door faster than a pizza. Naturally, as states have legalized marijuana sales, legal delivery services have followed, from Snoop Dogg-funded Eaze to Lantern, which is owned by alcohol delivery and e-commerce platform Drizly. And thanks to the pandemic, delivery services are booming and companies are hiring and raising venture capital to keep up with the surge in demand.

(Politico) In the past decade, 15 states have legalized a regulated marijuana market for adults over 21, and another 17 have legalized medical marijuana. But in their rush to limit the numbers of licensed vendors and give local municipalities control of where to locate dispensaries, they created something else: A market for local corruption.

(Marijuana Moment) It was just one year ago that regulated recreational cannabis sales launched in Illinois, and the state has seen a significant upward trend in purchases in the months since, even amid the coronavirus pandemic. Now state officials are reporting at least $1,000,308,800 in total sales from medical and recreational marijuana purchases over the course of the year—and that doesn’t include data from medical cannabis sales in December, which has not been released yet.
