THE GREEN RUSH: Pot Prospectors Seek Fortune In Legal Weed | Let's Legalize, Regulate, and Tax Marijuana like Alcohol | Scoop.it
SEATTLE (AP) — Dot-bong, Marijuana Inc., the Green Rush: Call it what you will, the burgeoning legal marijuana industry in Washington state is drawing pot prospectors of all stripes.
Dennis Levy's insight:

Legal marijuana sales in the U.S. will top $2.3 billion in 2014, up 64 percent from this year’s $1.4 billion, according to a new study by a marijuana industry group. At that rate, U.S. cannabis sales will outpace the worldwide growth of smartphone sales, which expanded 46 percent between the second quarters of 2012 and 2013, the report says, citing Gartner research.

David Nutt: Science now allows us to develop a safer way to get drunk. But before we can sober up in minutes, the drinks industry needs to embrace this healthier approach

Beckley Foundation's curator insight, November 12, 2013 12:22 PM

Worth a read… In a new article for the Guardian, Prof. David Nutt (Co-founder of the Beckley / Imperial Psychopharmacological Research Program and early member of the Beckley Scientific Advisory Board) talks about promising advances in the search for an alcohol substitute which can effectively be switched on and off. 

By isolating the part of the brain that is responsible for the pleasant effects of alcohol (the Gaba neurotransmitter system), it should be possible to create a compound which affects this particular system - giving a pleasurable feeling of being a little bit drunk - but which cuts out the bad parts, like addictiveness or aggression. 

Delving even deeper into what seems like the realms of science fiction, Nutt goes on to suggest that alongside this new 'alcohol surrogate' we could sell… the antidote! This opens up the possibility of drinking and driving - legally. Or going to bed having taken the perfect pre-emptive hangover cure. 

And how many decades must we wait for such an innovative solution to move from theory to reality? Well, Professor Nutt has already tried one of his five alcohol substitutes and the accompanying antidote… it sounds quite successful. 

Hands up who wants to be in the test group!

Beckley Foundation's curator insight, October 22, 2013 7:47 AM

Thursday was the final day for public comments. Members of the three organisations, activists and members of the public made a submission emphasising the need for a review of the laws, which give a monopoly to pharmaceutical companies who patent a drug.


The aim of the campaign has been to fight against these 20-year monopolies as they mean the country cannot access cheaper and newer drugs available on the market during this period.


They also mean drugs have to be bought at prices set by the pharmacy: “They become expensive and unaffordable, and inaccessible to a large part of our society,” said Section27’s Umunyana Rugege.
