RIVERSIDE, Calif. - Jan. 27, 2020 - PRLog -- In Chicago, "cannabis amnesty" boxes are introduced at both O'Hare International and Midway airports to encourage passengers to ditch their legal marijuana before flying. Statements from the TSA and local law enforcement saying that screening and prosecuting cannabis possession isn't their priority, however, could leave travellers tempted despite the new boxes.

In Mississippi, a constitutional amendment legalizing medical cannabis for 22 conditions such as cancer and chronic pain qualifies for the November 2020 ballot. The initiative, which would prohibit the state from limiting the number of MMJ business licenses and setting prices, is opposed by Republican Governor Phil Bryant, who said he would put an amended version to voters, giving them a choice between the two measures.

Trulieve sues Grizzly Research for defamation and libel intended to cut into the company's almost 50 percent market share in the state. Grizzly's report made claims of suspicious accounting practices, ties to an FBI corruption investigation, and production of low-quality marijuana based on drone footage. While stock prices have slumped.

House lawmakers add insomnia and opioid-use disorder to the list of qualifying conditions for medical marijuana, while rejecting anxiety and Lyme disease. Any potential MMJ sales boost gained from the inclusion of opioid addiction are expected to be offset by significant restrictions on the type of health care providers who may prescribe it for the disorder. At the same time, the state Senate voted to continue investigation on a bill legalizing recreational marijuana.

Ohio's medical marijuana sales total 60 million dollars in the first year of the state's program, not quite matching up to other new markets like Maryland and Pennsylvania. After a small-scale launch, and limited supplies throughout 2019, an increasing number of dispensaries and falling prices indicate the state's industry can only grow larger.

Avicanna signs a supply agreement with the country's largest pharmacy chain, Shoppers Drug Mart, to distribute their medical cannabis brands, including Rho Phyto and Pura Earth CBD derma-cosmetics, to patients online. Although the Toronto-based company will partner with Canadian producers to manufacture the products for the deal, they hope to eventually ship directly from their Columbian cultivation operations.

Oregon-based Anden Naturals win Peru's first bidding process to supply medical cannabis to the country, with an offer of under 8,400 dollars for 10 liters of 5 percent concentrate CBD oil. According to Anden, the rock-bottom bid, which amounts to less than 2 cents per milligram of CBD and will make the retail product one of the cheapest CBD prescriptions in the world, is a discounted initial price.
