Yesterday, the Buffalo News reported on an agreement with Britain-based GW Pharmaceuticals to pursue clinical trials in New York for Epidiolex, a investigational new marijuana-derived drug that is intended for children with severe seizure disorders. The proposal is limited to research studies only, must go through the lengthy FDA-approval process, and would be focused solely on children under 18 years of age with severe seizure disorders who have not responded to other medications. The research study is not the same thing as a patient access system for medical marijuana – such as the one outlined in the Compassionate Care Act

The state cannot implement the law, federal officials said Tuesday. The Georgia law, passed in March and signed into law by Gov.

Vermont Voters Leaning Towards Allowing Retail Marijuana Sales

The east coast is known for being way far behind the west coast in the cannabis industry. For whatever reason, the colder side of the states is just not as 420 friendly as the stoners that live there would like. So when even the smaller states make a move towards cannabis, it’s a huge deal for those on the east coast. Recently, the voters in Vermont voiced how they feel about the legal cannabis market in a poll conducted by the state wide Castleton Polling Institute, sponsored by the Marijuana Policy Project. The voters polled showed that 57% of them
