Consequences of State and Local Legalization
(Growing, Legalization, Medical Marijuana, Recreational, United States, Washington, Washington DC) Under Federal law, marijuana is still an illegal substance, yet 23 states and Washington DC have legalized medical marijuana, and four states have decriminalized marijuana for recreational use. With this shift in policy and many other states expected to follow suit, we will need to consider ways to address the growing impact and consequences of legalization. Dr. Rosalie Pacula, Director of the Bing Center for Health Economics at the RAND Corporation, will examine in this video the variance among marijuana laws and the complexity of the impact of decriminalization or legalization.

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...

Bipartisan Group of Legislators Introduce Bill to Legalize Cannabis Home Grows in Washington State
(Cannabis, Legalization, Recreational, United States, Washington, Recreational Cannabis) A bipartisan group of state legislators introduced legislation this morning that would legalize cannabis home grows in Washington, giving adults the right to grow up to six plants at home for personal use.Two companion bills were simultaneously introduced in the Senate and House of Representatives with members of both parties signed onto the two bills. Washington is the only state in the nation that has legalized recreational cannabis without giving adults the right to grow pot at home. Is this the year that we finally legalize home grows?

Is Cannabis Research On the Way Up?
(Canada, Cannabis, Hemp, Investments, Legalization, News, Production, Products, Recreational, Research, United States, Washington, Funding) The marijuana market has undoubtedly seen a massive boom over the course of the past few years. One of the major benefits of this has been the changing of legislation across the board in places like Canada and various states throughout the U.S. Although it is still federally legal in the U.S. and many places around the world, the new market has opened up a large amount of opportunity for those looking to research the substance. One of the issues with lacking laws to allow marijuana’s use is the fact that it makes it extremely difficult to study. For a drug with so much potential to treat everything from cancer to insomnia, one would think that research would be one of the priorities. Researching the substance however has been extremely difficult for those looking to find new medicines and cures for many of the most popular ailments we face on a daily basis. Although this may seem bleak, studies are showing that the popularity of cannabis around the world is allowing for the...

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 ]]>

Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) is getting a jump on 2019 cannabis legislation by introducing H.R. 420, a bill that would remove cannabis from the federal list of controlled substances and roll its regulation into the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The agency’s name would be changed to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Marijuana, Firearms and Explosives.“While the bill number may be a bit tongue-in-cheek, the issue is very serious," Blumenauer said in a public statement first reported by Willamette Week . "Our federal marijuana laws are outdated, out of touch and have negatively impacted countless lives. Congress cannot continue to be out of touch with a movement that a growing majority of Americans support. It's time to end this senseless prohibition."
