Global CannaVigilance Cannabis Newsletter 2023/22

October 25, 2023 | Category : Global CannaVigilance | Posted By : Team Cannavigia

Hello friends of CannaVigilance,

There are two ways to view this week: Option one is that it’s that week of the year again when American cultural imperialism overrides good taste and logic all over the world. Option two is that you get to dress up any way you want without having to explain it to anybody. This last option gives way to many interpretations and we’ll just leave it at that. In the meantime, the world keeps on turning and things keep on happening, which is the reason you are reading this. So, just keep on reading.

A vigilant eye on cannabis news

  • Recommendations made by the Irish Citizen’s Assembly could see the decriminalisation of drug possession. The vote to legalise cannabis went the wrong way though – but only by one vote. 
  • South Africa’s AmaMpondo King, aseNyandeni Ndlovuyezwe Ndamase has urged his subjects to protect their prime asset, cannabis, from being hijacked by big pharmaceutical organisations and international investors. His voice joins a chorus of domestic legacy growers who are speaking out about the “new colonisation”. 
  • Bank of America, the National Rifle Association, and Mastercard are among the entities that are currently lobbying on the USA’s cannabis banking act. The bill aims to ease access to banking services for marijuana businesses. 
  • Germany’s Cannabis Act took another important step forward last week after the first parliamentary debate was held in the Bundestag. The debate saw members of the Traffic Light Coalition show a great deal of unity and demonstrate their intention to push the bill through.
