Maine Has Lost Over a Thousand Cannabis Caregivers Since 2021

Veriheal

In April 2023, Maine’s Office of Cannabis Policy (OCP) reported an exodus of about 1350 cannabis primary caregivers from the state’s medical marijuana market between 2021 to January 2023.

Will Banks Kill Cannabis to Save Themselves? (Cannabis Recession 2023)

Cannabis Life Network

Will banks kill the cannabis industry to save themselves? Is this another sign of the cannabis recession in 2023? Virtually no country is immune to the effects of the U.S. Federal Reserve. The American central bank secretly bailed out Canadian banks in the 2008-09 recession. So it would be unwise to view Fed actions as having no bearing or consequence for the Canadian economy, including the cannabis industry.
