Virginia lawmakers couldn’t agree on legislation to launch commercial adult-use cannabis sales this year, but instead approved a bill last week that would more tightly regulate hemp-derived THC products in the state. Both chambers of the Virginia General Assembly voted Feb. 24 to send House Bill 2294 to Gov. The 36-page bill establishes license requirements and stricter labeling rules for hemp-derived THC products, which are now largely unregulated and sold at gas stations and convenience stores throughout the state. Last year, the Virginia General Assembly created a 16-member task force to study the issue of delta-8 and other hemp-derived THC products being sold in the state. The new labeling rules would also bar any hemp-derived THC products from being marketed as curing, treating or preventing any disease, the news outlet reported.28 days ago Cannabis Business Times -

"We got there in the end," said Leach, who claimed his fifth five-wicket haul in Test cricket after taking five for 157. The home team's initial comeback had been thanks to former captain Williamson, who from the fourth ball of the morning made history as he ticked over his 7,684th Test run to become the Black Caps' leading Test run scorer. From that point, it was England who made the running, as New Zealand lost their final five wickets for 28 runs, as Leach mopped up the tail. "We're very confident we'll chase it down," concluded Leach.29 days ago Evening Standard
