City of Medicine Hat staying hands off as more cannabis retailers open

On Saturday, two new cannabis retail locations opened up shop in the ‘Gas City’ including Choom Cannabis on 3rd Street Southeast and Spiritleaf on Trans-Canada Way.

That’s brought Medicine Hat’s marketplace to double-digits, with 11 locations approved to sell recreational cannabis in the city.

Mayor Ted Clugston said he’s heard from a handful of these owners who say the market is becoming over saturated.

“I’ve had some business owners come to me that actually own retail outlets say, ‘I think there’s too many,’” said Clugston. “We took the approach here at City Hall that it will sort itself out.”

Among Alberta’s nine largest cities, Medicine Hat has the most cannabis stores per capita with one retailer for every 5,750 residents.

New analysis finds link between vaping and cannabis use in teens, young adults

Teens and young adults who use electronic cigarettes are significantly more likely to use cannabis as well, according to a new study co-authored by a Canadian researcher.

Pediatrician Nicholas Chadi's analysis of previous research, published in JAMA Pediatrics, found that the likelihood of marijuana use was three to four times higher among youth who vaped.

One of the key findings showed the risk for younger adolescents aged 12 to 17 was higher than for young adults aged 18 to 24 years.

"It's an important discovery for us," said Chadi, who is now based at Montreal's Ste-Justine Hospital but conducted the research during a previous posting in Boston.

CBD stock review and cannabis investing: why CBD edibles may be a safer option than THC foods

While THC-based foods and edibles present all sorts of challenges (mostly of health and legal nature), CBD (cannabidiol), which has no psychotropic effects, appears set to become the next miracle ingredient, according to many in the food industry.

Opiates killed 47,600 people in 2017 in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). That year, the epidemic was declared a “public health emergency” by President Donald Trump.

Bernie Sanders just suggested a unique way to legalize marijuana

Whether you're ready for it or not, it's election season in America. For the next 15 months we'll be hearing political ads and debates, and reading columns concerning which political candidates give our city, county, state, or country the best chance to thrive.
