Without a doubt, 2023 has kicked off to a great start in the world of alternative products, and we're extremely excited to see to share the latest news we've collected so far for the month of February. We're going to share the latest industry news, company news, and product news to bring you up-to-date.
Here is what's up...
The Latest Industry News
There is a lot of industry news to share, so much so that it's almost overwhelming. To give you a glimpse into what's happening in the world of cannabis, we've share bits and pieces to bring you up-to-date with what's happening.
To begin, Amsterdam, the Netherlands' capital and one of the most relaxed locations concerning sex work, cannabis, and more, is seeing a change in the rules it has become used to. After prohibiting laughing gas, they've now banned smoking cannabis in its Red Light District, sex workers now have to close their shops by 3am, and there are several more laws being implementer later in the year.
While Amsterdam is undergoing changes, so is California. In fact, the state of California is considering Amsterdam-style cannabis cafes. A lawmaker in San Francisco has proposed a new bill that would allow cannabis dispensaries to open Amsterdam-style cafes, allowing retailers to create a coffee shop atmosphere. Ultimately, the bill would make it where cannabis shops could sell food, coffee, and host music events so that people could enjoy cannabis socially.
MGO, a CPA and business advisory firm has created the 4th annual Cannabis 50 list, which recognizes the companies, organizations, and individuals who have made the most impact on the cannabis industry, including hemp, throughout the past year. The list is long, sharing the top entrepreneurs and organizations, nonprofits and activists, investors and banks, researchers and educators, and what you hear about most in the news, the athletes, entertainers, and influencers mainstreaming the cannabis culture. Some of the people on that list is Lil' Kim, Montel Williams, Diddy, Mike Tyson, and Wiz Khalifa.
Lastly, it was just too ironic not to share that it has been announced that U.S. Customs and Border Protection seizures of illegal cannabis have dropped tremendously in 2022. In 2022, only 154,797 pounds of cannabis were seized, which is less than half of what was seized by the agency in 2021. The amount seized has dropped 95% within the last 10 years. Why? More states have legalized marijuana, and thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp-derived products using cannabinoids like Delta 8 is acting as the perfect legal alternative.
