NY Governor Unveils Plan to Legalize Recreational Marijuana
(Arizona, California, Legalization, New York, Recreational, United States, Retail Sales) The Associated Press (AP) — New York would become the 11th state to legalize recreational marijuana for adults under a proposal unveiled Tuesday by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The measure would permit personal use as well as retail sales of the drug. Marijuana taxes would raise an estimated $300 million a year, Cuomo said. Cities and counties could prohibit retail pot shops within their boundaries if they choose. “The time for talking is over,” Cuomo said in the speech. “It is the time for doing.” Removing penalties for recreational marijuana has broad support in the Democrat-controlled Senate and Assembly. Cuomo inserted the measure into his $175 billion state budget proposal, which lawmakers plan to act on by April 1. Two years ago Cuomo dismissed marijuana as a “gateway drug” but now says he supports legalization following a study by state health officials who determined the benefits of legalization outweigh the risks. The governor’s change of opinion mirrors a similar evolution...

Trump’s AG Pick Vows Not to Target State Marijuana Businesses
(Arizona, California, Cannabis, Distribution, Growing, Investments, Legalization, Production, Recreational, United States, Recreational Cannabis) By Associated Press (AP) — President Donald Trump’s pick to become the next attorney general said Tuesday that he would “not go after” marijuana companies in states where cannabis is legal, even though he personally believes the drug should be outlawed. In his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, William Barr said he would not use limited government resources to target cannabis businesses that are complying with state laws. Businesses in the marijuana industry relied on Obama-era guidance that kept federal authorities from cracking down on the pot trade in states where the drug is legal, but those guidelines were rescinded by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions last year. Pointing to the growing marijuana industry and investments in cannabis companies, Barr said he didn’t want to “upset settled expectations.” “To the extent that people are complying with the state laws, distribution and production and so forth, we’re not going to go after that,” Barr said. Despite his...

How Glass House Farms Helped Santa Barbara County Address Cannabis Odor Issues
(California, Cannabis, Greenhouses, Growers, Growing, Media, New York, United States, Cultivation) One of the prevailing public concerns in the world’s largest cannabis market, California, which ushered in its regulated adult-use market Jan. 1, 2018, is odor. It’s known ominously as “the stink,” as some residents call it, according to a December 2018 New York Times feature on the issue.The state has left the debate to its county and municipal governments, which are the gatekeepers of the licensed cannabis business. You can’t secure a state permit without first gaining the approval of local regulators in, say, Santa Barbara County, and the matter of odor control is being foisted to the front of the public debate over who earns a spot in the marketplace and who doesn’t. Graham Farrar, founder of Glass House Farms , says that he and his team worked closely with Santa Barbara County to craft an odor control ordinance that all licensed businesses must follow. The public was involved, too. “There was quite a bit of community involvement,” Farrar says. “Odor’s a tough one, right? It's...

A few months ago, I wrote a blog post about the precarious state of industrial-hemp derived CBD in California. Since then, as everyone knows, President Trump signed the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 (or “Farm Bill”). A lot of people think that in the wake of the Farm Bill, hemp-derived CBD (“Hemp CBD”) is now completely legal. This is in many cases a wildly inaccurate misconception—especially in California. Now, the legal status of Hemp CBD is arguably even more confounding than it was then. And it was pretty bad . What did the 2018 Farm Bill Actually Do? Before getting into California Hemp CBD laws, it’s important to discuss what the new Farm Bill even changes. If you follow us here at the Canna Law Blog, you know we’ve written pretty comprehensively on this topic. For a brief overview, the 2018 Farm Bill modified the Controlled Substances Act (the “CSA”) to exempt hemp from the definition of marijuana. Not only is hemp...
