Responsible Marijuana Consumption Raises Health Concerns

Tuesday, June 24, 2014 9:29:41 AM America/Chicago

“They’ve got a strange interpretation of the law” said Peter Johnson, founder and CEO of Colorado Green Tours, in response to Denver hotel regulations around smoking marijuana on balconies. Denver ordinances make it illegal to consume marijuana in “open and public” places, which includes almost all businesses and all public places. With these types of restrictions and the now easy accessibility to marijuana shops, public officials are raising concerns about the safety and welfare of marijuana consumers. Officials are especially concerned about users consuming edible marijuana products or using vape pens, which can be difficult to decipher from e-cigarettes or regular non-laced food items due to their high level of potency and potential lethality.

"If you're smoking a vape pen that looks exactly like an e-cigarette, or if you're eating a brownie," Sederberg argues, "you are not consuming marijuana openly." Denver ordinances make it nearly impossible to consume marijuana in public but now officials are raising concerns about the enforceability of their ordinances due to the difficulty of deciphering a marijuana infused food item or vape pen versus a regular food item or e-cigarette. Additionally, there are concerns about the health of marijuana consumers and the general public that may encounter high individuals on the roads or in public.

“The marijuana in those pot brownies isn’t the only thing that can potentially make consumers sick. The industry and regulators are taking a closer look at how marijuana-infused edibles are made.” The Boston Globe reports that food safety testing is just around the corner for edible marijuana sellers, which is likely to add a level of credibility to the industry. “ . . . [it will] create that public confidence that we’re not just a bunch of stupid kids throwing marijuana into cookies and putting them on the market,’’ said Jazzmine Hall-Oldham, general manager of Bakked, which makes cannabis concentrates and marijuana-infused chocolate bars.

With momentum mounting in the world of hemp, Clover Leaf University is proud to be planning the first Industrial hemp course approved, regulated, and licensed by the Colorado Department of Higher Education's Private Occupational School Board.  Class details are to be released in the next few weeks!


CLU is working with the Depatrment of Agricultutre and other state agencies in the development of the hemp industry in Colorado. In fact, the University has close ties with people working hard to build the landscape from the ground up. Cultivation professor Adam Dunn is one of the lastest hemp importers preparing to scale the crop to an industrial level. We also are proud to have Samantha Walsh on our elite curriculum advisory board. She is doing amazing work in the hemp world recently, including the passing of industrial hemp bill SB-241, that allows for farmers to grow industrial hemp in Colorado without a permit from the DEA. We are excited to expand the production of hemp because of its potential to heal contaminated and overused farmlands, and to be researched and developed as a product that can supply fiber, building materials, fuels, plastics, and many more products in position to improve and clean our lifestyles. 


Aljazeera America reports that “Federal legislation outlawed hemp as part of a war on marijuana in 1937, however, this year's Farm Bill passed on Feb. 4 contains a provision that allows colleges and state agencies to grow and conduct research on the plant in states that allow it.” The article continues in discussion of the classification and qualities of hemp. “Though industrial hemp and marijuana come from the same plant, Cannabis sativa, hemp seeds are bred to produce plants with 0.3 to 1.5 percent THC, whereas marijuana has 5 to 15 percent. THC, the ingredient in marijuana that gets people high, is far too low in hemp to have the same effect.”

“The crop right now is sellable," he says. "I've already had people contact me on my website saying, 'We know you're growing stuff and we want to buy it from you already,' And we haven't even put it in the ground." Remarked Jim Denny, one of over 100 hemp growers approved by the Colorado Department of Agriculture to plant hemp seeds. NPR goes on the report “…today U.S. hemp seed is scarce. It's technically still illegal to import viable seed — it has to be sterile. So anyone with usable seed is suddenly very, very popular.”

“Everybody's on board with it,” he said. "Farmers, rather than to keep a field fallow or have a low value crop, then they can put in a high-value crop." Stated Rep. Vincent Buys of Washington. Whatcom County of Washington is piloting an one year study around the benefits of allowing farmers and educational institutions to cultivate hemp seeds in the state. The article goes on the suggest that hemp seeds, although ancestors of the marijuana plant, do not have the same adverse effects due to low THC levels and can in fact provide nutritional and agricultural benefits.

In this video Clover Leaf University President Chloe Villano appears on Fox News to discuss the the vital need for quality educational business training along with consumer and community safety training for this new multi billion dollar industry. "Colorado alone has created over 10,000 jobs. This is an important time as cannabis is re-introduced into society, to properly educate everyone involved, business owners, employees, community members, consumers, and even our political leaders on the responsible use and sale of legal cannabis,” says Villano.

Clover Leaf University on David Letterman's Top 10!

Friday, May 30, 2014 3:00:07 AM America/Chicago

 

Clover Leaf University was featured on David Letterman’s Top 10, and we’re proud to take jabs from such an influential comedian. Advanced Chong and Seth Rogenomics are some good options we somehow left out of the CLU Spring Catalog! All jokes aside, we take educating the next wave of cannabis industry professionals seriously. While we are working together to shape the future of the industry, we need to always reserve some time to step back and have a good laugh. Enjoy!
