Purdue Researchers Tackle Cannabis Industry’s Pesticide Problem
(California, Cannabis, CBD, Colorado, Edibles, Facilities, Food, Growers, Growing, Growing Facilities, Hemp, Illinois, Investing, Legalization, Management, Michigan, Ohio, Oregon, Production, Products, Regulations, Research, Testing, United States, Washington, Industrial Hemp, THC, Funding) While the 2018 Farm Bill’s legalization of industrial hemp will allow more farmers to take advantage of this new crop, no pesticides are federally approved for use on the plant.In a paper published in Crop Protection , Purdue University researchers Janna Beckerman, Leah Sandler, Fred Whitford and Kevin Gibson outline some of the problems surrounding the lack of approved pesticides for hemp and cannabis. They also call for a clear federal framework to define pesticide rules, research funding to help uncover valuable information for cultivators, and policies and procedures to ensure the safety of products derived from the plants.Here, Beckerman, a professor of botany and plant pathology, and Whitford, director of Purdue Pesticide Programs, describe the problems hemp and cannabis growers face due to the lack of pesticide regulations, as well as how these problems may be resolved through clear federal guidance.

Marijuana stocks weekend investor roundup: Analysis of the week’s most important events in the cannabis industry (January 5)
(California, Canada, Cannabis, Connecticut, Events, Germany, Growers, Illinois, Investors, Israel, Leases, Legalization, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, News, North Carolina, Oregon, Recreational, Regulations, Retail Stores, United States, Recreational Cannabis, Cultivation) Ontario only opening 25 retail stores in 2019 Bottom Line: The Ontario government is now saying only 25 retail cannabis stores will be open in 2019, or only one store per 550,000 people. The random drawing means that many LPs and other retail operators who spent money to sign leases in hopes of opening are now left paying for space they will not be able to use. Grizzle believes the supply shortage will be largely eliminated in the second half of 2019, so the Ontario government is being far too conservative in only allowing 25 stores. These 25 stores could generate at most CA$30 million ($22.43 million) per store per year or CA$560 million ($418.71 million) total in 2019. For perspective, the market cap of the 11 largest licensed producers implies CA$9 billion ($6.73) of sales in 2020. Oregon farmers produced 450,000 kg of marijuana in 2018 Bottom Line: Oregon’s 1,107 growers grew enough cannabis to supply the equivalent of 75 percent of Canada’s demand. Oregon is harvesting 450,000 kg...

Every year, since 2014, there has been a rider amendment in the federal spending bill to protect states that have legalized medical marijuana, Forbes notes, and it is only valid when the government is operational. Language that would extend legal protections for state medical marijuana programs from federal interference is included in a new bill expected to pass this week to end the current government shutdown. The bill reads: “None of the funds made available under this Act to the Department of Justice may be used, with respect to any of the States of Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri,...

Democrats Say Illinois Marijuana Bill Will Create Social Justice, But Black Leaders Aren't Sold Yet
(Cannabis, Illinois, Legalization, United States) Gov.-Elect J.B. Pritzker campaigned on a platform to end cannabis prohibition in Illinois, often emphasizing the ways legalization could benefit minority communities that have been ravaged by the drug war and largely left out of the state’s budding cannabis industry.But some black leaders have been slow to endorse the Pritzker-backed legalization effort that’s being spearheaded by state Sen. Heather Steans and state Rep. Kelly Cassidy. The Chicago Democrats plan to introduce a new bill to legalize marijuana when lawmakers reconvene in Springfield next month.“Clarity is really important,” said state Sen. Kimberly Lightford, D-Maywood, joint chair of the Illinois Legislative Black Caucus. “We do not want to find ourselves in the position where we’re just generating revenue—which is terribly needed. We’re creating a new statute that I believe I could support provided that it has parameters in place that are clear and understood among state’s attorneys, judges, law enforcement and the...

We had a blast celebrating all of the big wins for cannabis on this blog this past year. Looking back, it was a monumental year for cannabis reform, both in the United States but also internationally. At this point, it feels like there is no realistic scenario in which prohibition carries the day: Federal legalization of marijuana, at least in the United States, feels like a fait accompli. Below are the ten biggest developments in cannabis law and policy over the past twelve months. California commenced its adult use marketplace. California is the fifth largest economy in the world. It was the first U.S. state to pass a medical marijuana ballot initiative, back in 1996, and given the interim developments in states like Colorado, Oregon and Washington, adult-use legalization in the Golden State has been a long time coming. There are still a ton of unknowns about California’s cannabis regulations (it also passed a hemp law ), but the...
