California Released Temporary Regulations for the Cannabis Industry

A little over a month ago, Alex Traverso, spokesman for the Bureau of Cannabis Control in California, announced that they would be issuing new regulations in November. Last Thursday, those regulations were released – but they will only be temporary, issued under an “emergency rulemaking process” because there was not enough time to hold the needed public hearings prior to the January 1st deadline. “There certainly will be licenses issued on Jan. 1,” said Alex Traverso of the Bureau of Cannabis Control.

At a zoning board meeting held last week in the Boston neighborhood of Back Bay, a man named Oliver Curme made his way to the audience podium and proceeded to give a short, brutal speech about medical marijuana patients that he deemed “undesirable elements” – like veterans with PTSD, people with disabilities and women suffering from breast cancer.  “For goodness sake, Newbury Street is our high end shopping district. We don’t want people like that scaring off the clientele,” he said at the end of his speech, as many in the room made their displeasure known. Crume now says...

Corona Enters the Legal Cannabis Industry

We’ve reported extensively on the foreseeable future of the cannabis industry. While much of the future of the legal herb business continues to look promising, there are some areas that cause varying degrees of concern.

Sessions Says Obama-Era Marijuana Policy Will Remain in Effect

After a crusade to try and repeal Obama-era policies protecting states’ marijuana laws, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has finally come to announce that they “are bound by” current policies, which will remain in effect for the time being. “Our policy is the same, really, fundamentally as the Holder-Lynch policy, which is that the federal law remains in effect and a state can legalize marijuana for its law enforcement purposes but it still remains illegal with regard to federal purposes,” Forbes reported Sessions as saying, referring to previous attorneys general and their policy. This announcement (of sorts) comes after months of...
