Mum Becomes One of the First People in Scotland to Be Prescribed Cannabis Legally After Years of Chronic Pain

A mother of five is thought to have become the first person in Scotland to be prescribed cannabis legally.

Kayleigh Compston, 26, has been prescribed the drug as part of a new European study. She says it allows her to play with her children and take a shower, after years of chronic pain.

Compston suffers from health conditions that cause her to experience paralysis and muscle spasms. Previously, she was routinely being prescribed morphine, which knocked her out and left her bedridden.

But she said she found cannabis, bought illegally, helped alleviate the symptoms of her functional neurological disorder (FND) and fibromyalgia, a long-term condition that causes pain all over the body.

SEC Sues Cannabis Players for $25 Million Offering Fraud

In the most basic terms, offering fraud occurs when a person (or entity) makes material misrepresentations or omissions to potential investors in a new company (most commonly, promising those investors large “guaranteed” returns on their investments). Offering fraud cases have become more prominent in recent years, and it looks like the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is ready to start looking at the cannabis industry.

Last week, the Commission filed suit in the Central District of California against a group of individuals and companies for securities offering fraud and other violations of the Exchange Act. The Complaint outlines how nine issuer entities and their principals/control persons raised over $25 million from more than 400 investors in the 2017-2019 timeframe to supposedly finance the establishment of a licensed marijuana farm and CBD extraction facility in Salinas, California. In soliciting investments, the defendants misled and deceived actual and potential investors about their potential return on investment – which they claimed to be annual returns of 100% or more.

It gets worse. The Complaint outlines a litany of additional offenses:

The defendants deceived investors about how their investment funds would actually be used, misrepresented the compensation they intended to receive, and misappropriated

First New Manitoba Cannabis Retailer Since Restrictions Loosened Set to Open

The first new Manitoba cannabis retailer licensed since the province loosened regulatory COVID-19 restrictions in June plans to fill its shelves with legal pot products in just over a week.

As of June, there were 30 licensed cannabis stores in the province, but the Crown services minister announced in May Manitoba would open the market to all prospective retailers on June 1.

The Joint — an independent chain of head shops in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta headquartered out of Winnipeg — will open a cannabis shop section at its Portage Avenue location around Aug. 10 after it received authorization from the Liquor, Gaming and Cannabis Authority of Manitoba and the Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries Corporation.

Cannabis, Sex, And The Occult: A Conversation With Sophie Saint Thomas

Equal But Different

“There’s evidence that estrogen gets you higher and testosterone does the opposite.”
This sex-based difference in response to cannabis often leads to a mismatch in how high partners will feel when including cannabis in their lovelife.

That said, other factors (e.g. a person’s weight, frequency of past cannabis use, unique biochemistry, etc.) also play major roles in how someone will feel when using cannabis during sex. These considerations often necessitate that lovers take different doses of cannabis before heading to the bedroom (or the woods, on a billiards table, or wherever the mood may strike).
Sophie related that, from her own experience, she has found that men and women tend to prefer different varieties of cannabis.

“The industry is moving away from the indica and sativa model in terms of a more accurate and detailed response, but I hear a lot of women wanting to use indicas, indicating they would want a more calming experience. With men, it seems to be they want a more energetic experience from sativas.

Here We Go! Feds Sue California for Cannabis Business Records

State legal cannabis businesses are used to the specter of the federal government in the rear view mirrors of their lives and businesses. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that cannabis remains federally illegal. And it’s not so much the case anymore that the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) or Department of Justice (DOJ) are coming to knock down your door and arrest and prosecute you as a cannabis business owner for open violations of the federal Controlled Substances Act (CSA). These days, life can be fairly miserable as a cannabis business owner due to the legal conflict between the states and the feds, resulting in a lack of access to financial institutions, onerous federal income tax obligations, no federal trademark protection, asset forfeiture, etc.

Rarely, though, do we get to see a state agency and the feds openly fight over these commercial cannabis democratic experiments (which is mainly due to the acting Attorney General’s “hands-off” approach to state legal cannabis, “Second Requestsscandal notwithstanding). When these confrontations happen, it’s fascinating to see how the respective governments behave and is always educational regarding evolving federal enforcement priorities.

And that is what made last week’s new so interesting.
