California Wants Mandatory QR Codes For Cannabis Businesses

(CNN) — California is doubling down on plans to use QR Codes in its fight against illicit cannabis sales. The California Bureau of Cannabis Control on Thursday proposed emergency regulations that would require state-licensed cannabis businesses to display their unique Quick Response Code certificates in their store windows and ensure they have the digital barcodes handy when transporting cannabis. The proposed regulations come a month after California cannabis regulators launched a campaign in which businesses could voluntarily post a uniquely generated QR Code that, when captured by a smartphone camera, would display information such as the license status, address and location. In 2019, California’s illicit cannabis market was estimated at $8.7 billion, according to Arcview and BDS Analytics, which track and analyze cannabis industry sales. California’s legal market sales were expected to top $3 billion. “The proposed regulations will help consumers avoid purchasing cannabis goods from unlicensed businesses by providing a simple way to confirm licensure immediately before entering the premises or receiving a delivery,” Bureau Chief Lori Ajax said in a statement. “These requirements will also assist law enforcement in distinguishing between legal and illegal transportation…

Man Clings To Hood Of His Car Following Teen Carjacking In Turlock

TURLOCK (CBS13) — Dramatic surveillance video captured a man who was clinging to the hood of his own car and being thrown off of it. His screamed for help can be heard as the driver of the car slammed into several parked cars, including Brooke Rose’s dad’s work truck. “They come down here and I hear the big boom and I was like, ‘Oh my goodness, like someone just hit something,’” Rose said. Turlock police say it all started as a carjacking not far from where the video all played out. It was just before 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday when officers say a 15-year-old girl and 17-year-old boy carjacked the man at a nearby park. “It was amazing that they missed my truck by inches, they missed the poor guy’s head by inches,” said Dan Mello, a neighbor.

California Could Limit ‘Flushable’ Wipes Tied To Sewer Clogs

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Wet wipes, those single-use wet tissues for babies and adults wanting something more than just toilet paper, are the scourge of sewer systems nationwide, according to several cities challenging claims that the products are safe to flush. Legislation that advanced on Thursday would require products that cannot be flushed down the toilet to be clearly labeled as such. Cities including New York and the District of Columbia have also attempted to cut down on what manufacturers call “flushable wipes,” saying they can actually clog pipes and require costly repairs. Some environmentalists worry the wipes end up in waterways, and the bill is among a number of efforts in California to keep harmful products out of the waste stream. A bill to replace California’s faltering recycling program by requiring beverage distributors to buy back their bottles and cans also moved forward in the California Senate on Thursday. Activists and celebrities lobbied in Sacramento on Wednesday for a proposal to cut statewide waste from single-use plastics by 75% within the decade. The California Assembly bill on wet wipes was watered down Thursday amid…

49ers got their first Super Bowl test Thursday, and they passed

The Super Bowl is all about the buzz. Every story that’s been told is about to be rehashed, every play re-analyzed and every character probed. With just two teams left, and two weeks to fill without any game to cover, it’s bound to happen. The 49ers were swarmed Thursday during their first media availability since Sunday, when they beat the Packers to earn their place in the Super Bowl. Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders didn’t take the bait. “Can you imagine if I gave a Super Bowl score prediction? All y’all’s pens would start moving,” he said. Joe Staley, the 49ers’ longest-tenured player, had to clarify after receiving his first question that he doesn’t actually hear defensive coordinator Robert Saleh’s invigorating stories told to his defense each week. “We don’t get a story, ” he said. “Wish we did. I’ve heard they’re epic.” How many different ways can the 49ers say Patrick Mahomes is an all-world talent? They were tested on that today, and it’ll only get more intense next week when they arrive in Miami and another Sunday has gone by without game tape for…
