Summary and opinion by Ronald Pires.
There are numerous countries throughout the world with a stagnant or failing economy. The people living in such countries, Latin America, Southern Europe, Asian and Pacific regions, need a new industry. An industry with growth, job creation and tax revenues. The next big thing, the export of marijuana products and various extracts derived from the plant.
Most governments have stringent laws concerning the cannabis industry, due to various international treaties. As of last year 185 countries have signed a document declaring weed as a class one narcotic. There have been other treaties over the course of time that have reinforced that marijuana is a narcotic and should remain illegal.
Jeffery Friedland, CEO of INTIVA, writer, and speaker has recently seen a surge in oversea calls concerning the export of cannabis. He and his company have been the how to establish a global cannabis business. Mr. Friedland wants a revision to the treaty which classifies the plant as a narcotic, and the ability to export cannabis.
The future of this billion dollar industry would reverberate if the United Sates would legalize. There are about a dozen or so countries and four and a half states with lenient or no laws against cannabis. Now, some countries laws against marijuana are being revised. Ultimately the war on drugs must change in countries including the (USA). Instead of a war to regenerate the economy, all we have to do is overgrow the globe.

Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman Eugene Monroe won’t be on the next roster, and it may be for his advocacy for medical marijuana. Monroe’s January recovery from a shoulder injury inspired him to write about marijuana versus opioids, and donate $80,000 to medical marijuana researchers at both Johns Hopkins University and the University of Pennsylvania. His work, he tweeted, was all for his “brothers… the players that make up the team… our future health and wellness.”
Unfortunately, his offseason, offtopic efforts failed to impress the Ravens officials. In the days leading up to his release, attitudes from the organization led Monroe to wonder if his marijuana advocacy was to blame. Interestingly, his original questions were less about the drug, and more about overall NFL healthcare.
It is arguable that reviewing old drug testing policies is going to be a big trend in U.S. companies in the nearest future. If the weed is legal, and the job can be done safely under cannabis influence, why would an employer be concerned about marijuana consumption enough to spend money on drug testing?
Current situation is creating a whole lot of consequences, like people easily cheating on drug tests by adding water to their urine, or other people making money on ‘weed detox sets’ that claim to free your system of cannabis traces in just three days. More than 93% test negative, but employers continue testing. In most cases, we just avoid working for companies that drug test employees.
