Nevada begins legal marijuana sales

Marijuana Growing News Nevada Becomes the 5th state for legal marijuana sales.
As of midnight, cannabis dispensaries in the Silver State can officially sell recreational marijuana to any adults 21 and older (just make sure you have an ID with you).
And if you’re looking to buy it, you should have plenty of places to shop. Forty dispensaries across Southern Nevada, including one each in Mesquite, Pahrump and Laughlin, have been approved by the state and local governments to begin selling. For Northern Nevadans, four dispensaries in Reno were approved for recreational sales.
Several opened their doors right at midnight, while other dispensaries are choosing to keep their normal store hours and plan to open midmorning Saturday.
The initial burst of sales will only last until 3 a.m., when stores must close because of local zoning ordinances. They can reopen at 6 a.m.
Nevada joins Colorado, Oregon, Washington and Alaska as the only U.S. states with regulated and taxed marijuana markets.
The first sales come less than eight months after Nevadans voted to legalize the use and sale of recreational pot.

Nevada hopes to see quite the rise in revenue by bringing legal marijuana out into dispensaries it has been a slow steady climb as the county commissions had issues in the past with various aspects of those growing marijuana and selling in in edibles and other marijuana products.

Drug derived from marijuana is on the cusp of federal approval

Cannabis to treat epilepsy is on the brink of becoming the first of its kind to win US government approval.

Cannabidiol does appear to help reduce seizures in two of the hardest-to-treat forms of epilepsy, Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome and Dravet Syndrome.

Because drugmaker GW Pharma was able to show that the product addresses a critical need, it was able to apply for a designation that could speed up the approval process. The company still faces some hurdles, though — the FDA has not yet approved any applications to sell marijuana for a health condition, and hasn’t given the green light to any drugs containing cannabidiol.

The first cannabidiol trial looked at the effects of the drug by studying 225 young people with Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome. The subjects were split into groups and given either a higher or lower dose of the drug or a placebo for 14 weeks. The results, presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s yearly meeting in Boston, showed that participants in the higher-dose group saw their seizure occurrence drop by about 42%. Those given the lower dose saw a decrease of roughly 37%, and those given the placebo only saw a 17% reduction.

The second trial, the results of which were published this week in the New England Journal of Medicine, looked at 120 children with Dravet syndrome. Half were given the drug and half received a placebo. Forty-three percent of participants given the drug saw their seizures reduced by half, and 5% stopped having seizures entirely. By comparison, the seizure rate in the group given a placebo barely budged.

Those promising findings build on previous research conducted last year by GW Pharma.

Cannabidiol, or CBD, which does not cause psychoactive effects but has shown some positive effects on certain body systems and may potentially affect seizures. This occurs without the aspect of the THC, which causes the “high” effects when using marijuana in other forms.
