|WELCOME TO THIS WEEK IN THE HEMP HEADLINES|
Bit of a slow news week for Hemp and Cannabis. We await the election results which have been criticised for huge delays once again. The electoral commissioner has even been asked to step down. We are all eagerly awaiting the results as our success is so close we can smell it. More news to come once the Electoral Vote Count is more verified.
A few stories worth of a mention this week including a Story from 60 mins on The Ferals of Nimbin from 1995. I remember this story well, I visited Nimbin as a teenager around this time andvery well could have been considered a feral myself.
Legalise Cannabis NSW was in the spotlight this week with Centrelink allowing LC volunteers to earn on their mutual obligations. I cant see why not, its a good cause and they are indeed contributing their time and energy just like any other party.
Recently we’ve been seeing a lot in the news about Nitrous Oxide Gas and Bulbs,
This story expands more on why the markets exploded with the younger generation.

The regulatory change caught many by surprise, as Australia’s first clinical psychedelic lab was established just a few years ago. “The world is going to be watching,” says Bill Ciprick, CEO of Optimi Health. “Australia is the first country to lean in and take this step.”

|Opinion: Australia’s psychedelic progress begs the question: Is Canada falling behind?|
From a global perspective, Canada has always been on the leading edge of healthcare policy. With the introduction of medical assistance in dying laws in 2016 and the legalisation of cannabis in 2018, we continue to make progress. But there’s one area in which our federal government’s delay has recently come into sharp focus: mental healthcare.
