For many marijuana dispensaries in Missoula and across the state, the last year has been a flurry of activity.

Following a statewide vote on Initiative 190 — which legalized recreational weed — House Bill 701 was conceived and put together guidelines for dispensaries across the state to sell it. But while laws and ordinances were being hammered out, cannabis businesses across the state began to draw up plans.

Product stock needed to be increased to deal with an influx of new customers, and shortages of both labor and material had to be dealt with.

Many parts were moving constantly, creating a flurry of activity in the industry.

“It’s really exciting for us because it’s just a whole new thing,” said Keeva Beddow, a co-owner of Ganja Goddess, a company with several cannabis retail stores across the state. “It’s exciting and we’re preparing, on I would say, all levels.”

Ganja Goddess is entirely women-led and women-owned, with an ownership group from Montana. A 2019 Forbes article reported a survey that of 166 cannabis businesses in 17 states, just 38.5% of survey respondents self-identified as females.

Costa Rica’s proposed hemp and medical cannabis law was passed by the Legislative Assembly on January 13, after a 29-10 vote. But what should have been a landmark accomplishment for cannabis legalization in the region has been overshadowed by President Carlos Alvarado’s refusal to sign Bill No. 21388 into law.

According to President Alvarado, there are concerns that the new law could run afoul of drug control treaties to which Costa Rica is a party, such as the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs of 1961. In fact, on January 10 the International Narcotics Control Board requested additional information about the bill, while reminding the Costa Rican government of its obligation to strictly regulate medical cannabis.

Proponents of Bill No. 21388 point out that Costa Rica’s Sala Constitucional (Constitutional Court) has already ruled that it does not violate the drug treaties signed by Costa Rica. In the face of both legislative and judicial approval of the proposal, a veto of the hemp and medical cannabis bill would constitute a “very grave error, not just for the Executive, but also for the legitimacy of the democratic political system.”

In any case, President Alvarado has not indicated that he plans to veto the

The Pelham City Council issued a proclamation prohibiting the operation of medical marijuana dispensaries within city boundaries. (File)

By MICHELLE LOVE | Staff Writer 

PELHAM – At the Jan. 24 City Council meeting, the Pelham City Council issued a proclamation specifying the city of Pelham’s stance prohibiting medical marijuana dispensary sites within city limits.

The proclamation, which was presented under the hand of Council President Maurice Mercer, cites a law passed by Governor Kay Ivey back in May 2021 which states it would be a risk to public health to allow the cultivation of medical marijuana without creating safeguards to prohibit recreational use.

“The City Council of the city of Pelham hereby proclaims the Council supports the Act’s intent to prohibit the operation of dispensaries in municipalities absent an affirmative adoption of an ordinance by a municipality to allow dispensaries, and the Council adopts and affirms the findings of the Legislature in the Act that recreational cannabis poses a danger and risk to public health and safety,” it reads in the proclamation.

The Act states “the state of Alabama shall not permit a dispensary to operate a dispensing site in any municipality…unless the municipality…has authorized

Net Savings Link Inc. (OTCMKTS: NSAV) has announced the successful transition of the Nirvana Meta Native Token (MNU) from just a digital gaming token to being acknowledged and recognized beyond the online gaming sector. 

MNU receives recognition beyond the gaming industry 

Both top managements feel this is a defining moment for the integrated metaverse token concept, which is equally the foundation of the NSAV ECOsystem. It works in a similar way to the ROBLOX currencies utilized at grocery stores. Nirvana Meta is the maiden public blockchain Role Playing Game (RPG) in the world.

The Nirvana Meta MNU is intended to be traded on the NSAVDEX 2 platform in 2022. Most importantly,  NSAV will continue working with more organizations to have the MNU digital money recognized and accepted for all of their transactions and purchases. NSAV is a collaborator with Nirvana Meta and the primary sponsor.

AKA CHY Autoworld Sdn Bhd accepting MNU payments 

Dato’ Calvin Yap Kim Heng, the owner of Malaysia Car King (AKA CHY Autoworld Sdn Bhd), officially confirmed on December 23, 2021, during a Nirvana Meta marketing event in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, that his company was accepting Nirvana Meta MNU for the automobiles purchases, including Tesla,
