Cannabis NewsBank: Research Edition is one of many databases from NewsBank Inc., all of which blend millions of news and information articles from numerous, disparate sources. It includes exclusive current and archived content from various broad-ranging, international sources. This database provides the same kind of articles and other content mentioned above, but it deals exclusively with cannabis and the cannabis industry, including their legal, legislative, medical, financial, distributional, and even agricultural aspects. It comprises roughly three million documents, dating from the 1930s to the present, drawn from 9,000 newspapers, newswires, newsletters, journals, magazines, transcripts, Web-only sources, and blogs (videos and audio recordings are also available). Most of the content is from North America, but some is from South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Australia/Oceania. The search functions in this database frequently produce results that are on point for the query submitted and can be understood with relative ease after overlooking a few confusing elements on the landing page. However, the vendor is not very forthcoming regarding pricing for this database, other than to maintain that it is based on full-time enrollment (FTE). The licensing agreement for this database is perhaps too long, but it is mostly standard and should be of little concern to potential subscribers.
