BOXING legend Mike Tyson says Britain should legalise cannabis to help ease the growing prescription pill crisis.

Pot entrepreneur Tyson, who owns a huge weed farm in California, says fully relaxed regulations would help ease the UK’s spiralling mental health problem.

The former boxing world champ, who once boasted of smoking £33,000 of cannabis every month, called it a ‘wonder drug’.

He told The Sun exclusively: “Well I will tell you, once it is legalised in the UK, you wouldn’t have to worry about all these prescriptions drugs driving everybody nutty and committing suicide and all that stuff. That will stop immediately.

Hot off its first meeting earlier this month, New York’s Cannabis Control Board (CCB) held its second meeting on October 21, 2021. As will be the case with all CCB meetings, it was broadcast live and a transcript of the meeting will be published here.

The CCB and the Office of Cannabis Management (OCM) made several noteworthy announcements, which we will detail below. But we won’t bury the lede: still no clear statement on when we can expect the adult-use rules and regulations to be released.

Below is what we did learn.

The munchies are often challenging to manage. Here are some tips that can help you get a grasp on them.

The munchies are perhaps the most ubiquitous side effect of smoking weed. While many variables go into the munchies (setting, place, mood), snacking afterward a smoke sesh is often unavoidable, and one of the main reasons why getting high is so enjoyable.

Is it possible to beat the munchies?

While you can never know for sure, there are a myriad of tricks that can allow you to have more control over your munchie urges. Here are 7 of them.

A lottery to select the operators of five new medical cannabis dispensaries in Rhode Island has been scheduled for next week, state officials said Friday.

To ensure a fair process, the lottery scheduled for Oct. 29 will be public and livestreamed, using numbered balls from the state Lottery, and picked by a blindfolded former FBI agent from a transparent tumbler borrowed from Twin River Casino, according to the Department of Business Regulation’s Office of Cannabis Regulation.

Luxembourg is set to become the first European nation to legalize the growing and use of cannabis, the government announced in a statement on Friday.

Under the new legislation, adults over 18 in Luxembourg will be allowed to use cannabis, and to grow up to four plants per household, which would make it the first country in Europe to fully legalize the production and consumption of the drug.

Decriminalization will also dramatically lower the current fines for possession of the drug to between US$29 and $581 for possession of three grams or less, down from the current fines of $291 to $2,910.
