Bill Protects Cannabis Users
Welcome back everyone to another episode of The Daily Dose today we are catching up on various articles of news and diving into the twitterverse for a bit. Some of the major headlines last 24hrs around cannabis were relating to Thailand decriminalizing cannabis for medical use only at this time.
It’s odd that multiple publications covered this story but it isn’t a huge story, in fact it was first reported couple months back that the country was considering doing so. I must say sometimes the most important news never makes it to the top and it’s sad.
The next piece is relating to you, your job and cannabis use. Just as the title says Washington D.C. has passed a bill protecting workers from getting fired for testing positive on a drug screening. This is huge but requires more effort to get it passed nationwide that would be monumental.
Hard to believe it took so long the thought that alcohol is accepted by employers knowing how much performance can be effected by a hangover but cannabis no YOUR FIRED! Silly in my opinion and the laws in some places seem to agree. The next steps are to iron out more details and figure out how to get similar laws passed in other states. People shouldn’t lose their jobs especially if their performance was never in question.
Conclusion Bill Approved
Finally the MPL situation, Congress is attempting to give more power to the FDA regarding dietary supplements in the US market. Some may want this and some may not but let me explain what this means and would encourage you to do more research as well to determine the best choice based on your informed opinion.
What Congress wants to do is make it mandatory for manufacturers of all dietary supplements which includes CBD, Kratom and many other Nootropics to make available and provide label info on products to be listed on a website hosted by the FDA.
In many instances I’d say sure thats good for transparency and good for consumers. On The other hand I can’t overlook the fact it’ll destroy any one too small much like how we saw in the vape industry with all the recent regulation it eliminated a lot of honest small businesses, now nicotine products prefilled and manufactured in China have moved in, most brands are directly made in China. So is this what we want for the dietary supplement world of plant medicines and solutions? I guess the main question is how much reporting does the FDA want, what would the extent of this newly gained power be. Furthermore I worry it’ll drive prices up on these products and wouldn’t allow smaller players to grow if the cost is too high to comply with the new MPL requirements.
I believe it’s best to find middle ground for Congress, FDA and for manufacturers something that is reasonable and doesn’t destroy everything in it’s path but lays a foundation to operate by.
