Industrial Hemp and the Banks: Slow Going
(Banking, Compliance, Distribution, Food, Hemp, News, Oregon, Production, Trademarks, United States, Washington, Industrial Hemp, Financial Services) We have spilled a lot of ink on this blog related to the 2018 Farm Bill , which legalized hemp at the federal level. It’s huge news. And there are so many ramifications, from food law to trademarks to the financial services environment. This blog post is going to cover financial institutions and hemp at about 10,000 feet. Since late December, we’ve had many clients come to us with frustrations about the ongoing lack of access post-Farm Bill, and questions about how things will play out in 2019. To frame this issue, it’s important to summarize what the Farm Bill actually is and does. In a recent post, we explained that “the 2018 Farm Bill modified the Controlled Substances Act (the ‘CSA’) to exempt hemp from the definition of marijuana. Not only is hemp now clearly excluded from this definition and thus not a scheduled drug, but states and tribes also cannot prohibit the distribution of hemp.” Seems easy, right? If only. Going forward, hemp will be subject to stiff regulation at the...

The Even More Perplexing State of Hemp CBD in California
(Alcohol, Banking, Beverages, California, Cannabis, CBD, Development, Distribution, Edibles, Food, Foods, Hemp, Hemp Products, Indiana, Manufacture, Manufacturer, Manufacturing, Oregon, Packaging, Processing, Production, Products, Regulations, Seed Oil, Supplements, Testing, Trademarks, United States, Vaporizers, Vaporizers, Industrial Hemp, Licensee, THC, Extracts, Cultivation, Intellectual Property, Security) We’ve got you covered on California, hemp, FDA and CBD. 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...

Oregon Marijuana Company Sued in FLSA Wage Claim
(Cannabis, Investment, Investments, Oregon, United States) Pay those employees, non-exempt and otherwise. I recently wrote about a case in the Tenth Circuit, Kenney v. Helix TCS, Inc . , where the Court of Appeals is asked to decide if the Federal Labor Standards act (FLSA) provides wage and hour protection to employees of cannabis businesses. That case hasn’t seen much movement since I wrote about it, but its decision could have a significant impact on a case recently filed in Federal District Court in Oregon. Michael Garity has filed a state and FLSA wage and hour claim against his former employer, WRD Investments LLC (“WRD Investments”). According to the complaint, Mr. Garity was hired by WRD Investments to provide expertise and labor in support of WRD Investments’ marijuana grow near Junction City, Oregon. Mr. Garity alleges he was a “non-exempt” employee for WRD Investments. His status as a non-exempt employee would have required WRD Investments to pay Mr. Garity at least minimum wage for all hours worked and overtime rates for all hours...

Recreational Marijuana Sales Might Not Be Hurting the Alcohol Industry After All
(Alcohol, Colorado, Legalization, Oregon, Recreational, United States, Washington) Recreational marijuana sales might not be having as large an impact on the alcohol industry as we previously thought.A new study out Thursday, conducted by The Distilled Spirits Council, found that spirits sales in states that have legalized recreational marijuana have actually grown since that legalization.For its report, it looked at state-level alcohol tax receipts and actual alcohol shipment data in three states: Colorado, Washington and Oregon between 2014—when marijuana was legalized—and 2017. According to its analysis, per capita, spirits sales increased between 3.6 percent and 7.6 percent in those states since recreational marijuana legalization went into effect. Colorado is up 7.6 percent; Washington state is up 5.4 percent; and Oregon is up 3.6 percent, all on-par with the national average for the same time period, 5.4 percent. Read more ]]>

Oregon Taking a Hard Look at Interstate Marijuana Sales
(Cannabis, Distribution, Growers, Growing, Legalization, Media, Oregon, Packaging, Products, Recreational, Testing, United States, Recreational Cannabis) Once again, Oregon is working on becoming a marijuana maverick. The Beaver State is on the verge of introducing a bill that would allow marijuana exports to other states by 2021. In an attempt to tackle the oversupply crisis that has plagued Oregon the last few years, the Craft Cannabis Alliance , an Oregon-based membership association of cannabis and allied businesses, has spearheaded a campaign aimed at reintroducing the idea of exporting Oregon cannabis, a plan that was first proposed in 2017 by Senator Floyd Prozanski (D-Eugene). The idea was memorialized in Senate Bill 1042 , which would have permitted interstate transfers of cannabis products with adjacent legal states that complied with Oregon’s testing, packaging and labeling rules as well as any rules imposed by the receiving state. Although the original proposal died in the House last year, a lot has changed since then. First, the popularity of marijuana among American adults has been on the rise. According to a 2017 Gallup...

(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.

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,...

Will Oregon Finally Protect Off-Work Marijuana Use in 2019?
(Arizona, Legalization, Medical Marijuana, Oregon, Recreational, Regulations, United States) It’s 2019 and Oregon employees can still be terminated for off-work marijuana use. That includes not just recreational use, but off-work medical use by registered cardholders in the Oregon Health Authority system– even patients with debilitating medical conditions like cancer or epilepsy. This means that Oregon, which has been on the forefront of decriminalization and legalization of marijuana, is no better than the most conservative jurisdictions when it comes to off-work use. What gives? Back in 2017 , the Oregon Senator Floyd Prozanski introduced Senate Bill 301 . The bill would have protected employee off-work marijuana use—meaning employers could not terminate an employee for using marijuana outside of working hours, so long as it did not lead to on-the-job impairment. The bill faced opposition from industry groups related to worksite safety and federal law. Accordingly, the bill was amended to protect only off-work use by medical marijuana card holders, but this was still not...
