Marijuanas Legalized Japan

In September 2020, Tokyo authorities detained two people for 20 days for posting marijuana on social media and encouraging others to try it. When New York legalized marijuana in March, the Japanese consulate warned the Japanese to stay away or face possible legal consequences at home. South Korea, for example, legalized medical cannabis in November 2018 and Thailand did the same a month later, in December 2018. Thailand went even further in legalizing adult cannabis last June, becoming the first Asian country to do so at the federal level. None of the countries are close to allowing recreational marijuana. But Taiwan and South Korea have both legalized medical marijuana as evidence mounts for its effectiveness. And China is the world`s largest producer of industrial hemp and related products. (CBD can be made there, but not used.) “If cannabis is to be legalized in Japan, big companies should enter the CBD business. Currently, it is limited to small and medium-sized enterprises or even slightly larger, young and active entrepreneurs. If legalized, the CBD business could also expand far beyond the current food and cosmetics industry,” Vincenty continues.

When he heard about CBD, his daughter had already undergone major brain surgery. The worsening of his seizures had seriously delayed his cognitive development. CAURD licensees are poised to make the first legal cannabis sales in New York City before the end of 2022 in order to “accelerate the delivery of investments to New York communities that have been impacted by the disproportionate enforcement of cannabis prohibition,” according to OCM. In August 2021, Japan`s Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare released a report detailing recommendations for the approval of medical cannabis for patients. In early May of this year, the ministry met again to continue the discussion on medical cannabis and to address the need for treatment for those who abuse cannabis and the fight against youth use. At the same time, the country should do more to prevent recreational use of the plant, the committee said in its conclusions after a meeting on Thursday. Possession of cannabis is illegal, but not its use; The panel recommended that unauthorized use also be criminalized. Treatment of the disease, doctors said, would most likely require a second surgery, which could cause permanent damage. Few were even willing to consider CBD as a treatment.

“However, the U.S. is ahead of the curve when it comes to bringing new ingredients to market and creating buzz. Japan generally follows U.S. trends in terms of the health benefits of an ingredient and vice versa in terms of traditional Asian ingredients such as matcha, fermented foods and seaweed,” Hill concludes. From 2022, cannabis will remain illegal in Japan for recreational and medical purposes. While other East Asian and industrialized countries have generally relaxed laws criminalizing cannabis in recent decades, Japan has maintained and strengthened laws prohibiting the use, possession and cultivation of cannabis. The proportion of the Japanese population who used cannabis at least once was 1.8% in 2019, making it the second most popular illicit drug in the country after methamphetamine. But Japan also has some of the most restrictive cannabis laws in East Asia, a region known for its drug intolerance. While the authorities haven`t really encouraged the CBD industry, they consider it largely benign.

CAURD licenses are reserved for businesses owned by individuals involved in justice “based on the New York adult cannabis market,” according to OCM. Specifically, applications were limited to those criminalized under prohibition or those whose immediate family member was convicted of a cannabis-related offence prior to March 31, 2021 (when former Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the marijuana regulations and tax law). Currently, Japan has one of the strictest regulations in the world for cannabis, making CBD a slow-growing market. Still, it has strong growth potential in consumables and cosmetics, according to industry players. NutritionInsight talks to US company Gencor and Dutch company Endoca about the outlook for the Japanese CBD market. To date, the Vermont Cannabis Control Board has approved more than 200 licenses for grow areas across the state. Theory looks forward to serving its customers with its location at 768 Putney Road, which is currently under construction. The site will add new jobs to the city, in addition to contributions related to the 14% excise tax on sales. Nevertheless, the report focused primarily on combating the spread of marijuana, including crime-related crimes.
