Trump’s anti-cannabis committee and federal legalisation of medicinal cannabis
(Cannabis, Hemp, Media, News, Production, Recreational, United States, Washington, Washington DC, Security) The assumption that Donald Trump might be a wheel of fortune in relation to cannabis policy has been confirmed over the last few months. On the one hand, the Trump government confirmed its anti-cannabis stance by secretly setting up an anti-weed committee in July. Its existence was not disclosed until the end of August, by the news portal Buzzfeed. On the other hand, there are more and more indications that legalisation of medicinal marijuana could see the light of day next year at federal level. The Secret Committee – Reefer Madness 3.0 According to a report in Buzzfeed News , representatives of the US government decided back in July during a secret meeting to start a public campaign against cannabis, and to create an anti-cannabis committee for this purpose. This meant that on 27 July, various US authorities came together, including representatives from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) as well as the Departments of Justice, Homeland Security and Health, to meet with members...

Vermont Legalizes Cannabis!
(Alaska, California, Cannabis, Colorado, Extraction, Kentucky, Legalization, Maine, Nevada, New Hampshire, Oils, Oregon, Recreational, United States, Vermont, Washington, Washington DC, Recreational Cannabis, Cultivation) Congratulations to defiant Vermont! Yesterday, Vermont Governor Phill Scott signed a bill into law legalizing marijuana. Vermont has become the first state to legalize recreational marijuana through its legislature. Alaska, Colorado, California, Maine, Massachusettes, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, and Washington DC all legalized the recreational use of cannabis through voter initiative. Vermont also becomes the first state to legalize after Jeff Sessions rescinded Obama-era guidance on federal enforcement in states with legal marijuana and issuing his own memo. The new law goes into effect on July 1, 2018. Vermont’s bill is also unique in that it is noncommercial. It does not create a regulated market ( yet ) or a tax structure for cannabis sales. The bill simply makes it legal to possess and grow small amounts of marijuana. This is similar to the legal framework regarding recreational cannabis in Washington DC. The Vermont legislature summarizes the intent of the bill as follows: It is...

But a local lawmaker in the nation's capital is looking to change that.Under the Medical Marijuana Improvement Amendment Act of 2017, patients would be allowed to self-certify as qualifying for medical cannabis. STATE BY STATE: D.C. Cannabis News That means they would no longer need to go through the time-consuming and sometimes costly process of meeting with a physician, filling out paperwork and waiting for the District of Columbia government to issue a medical cannabis identification card.Instead, they could simply visit dispensaries and present a signed affidavit affirming that they use cannabis "explicitly for medical purposes," are over 21 years of age and are aware of local and federal marijuana laws.

New Federal Govt Survey Says Teen Marijuana Use Decreased in 2016
(Alcohol, Cannabis, Colorado, District of Columbia, United States, Washington, Washington DC, Retail Sales) Released on Sept 7, the annual National Survey on Drug Use and Health by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) reports that teen marijuana use rates have decreased nationally in 2016. Past-month use rates among adults increased slightly, but alcohol use rates among all age groups decreased, indicating the possibility that adults are substituting marijuana for alcohol. Past-month use rates for the 12-17 age group decreased by 0.5% from 2015 to 6.5% nationally in 2016, reports MPP . This is the lowest level of marijuana use in this age group since 2002. The data also shows a steady decrease since 2014, when the first states to make marijuana legal for adults began allowing regulated retail sales. Morgan Fox, senior communications manager for the Marijuana Policy Project, said, “Critics of legalization worry about the message being sent to youth by marijuana policy reform efforts, but the real message is that marijuana should only be used by responsible...

Regulating Ganja: Our Report on Jamaica Cannabis
(Canada, Cannabis, CBD, Distribution, Florida, Israel, Jamaica, Manufacture, Medical Marijuana, Processing, Products, Research, Spain, Strains, Training, United States, Uruguay, Washington, Washington DC, THC, Dispensaries, Cultivation, Security) Over the weekend, I attended CanEx Jamaica in Montego Bay. The event focused on the business and policy of cannabis in Jamaica and abroad. Jamaica decriminalized cannabis in 2015, imposing a fine for possession of less than two ounces of cannabis rather than possible jail time. Jamaica also has legalized cannabis for medical use, but is still in the process of implementing a regulated program. Jamaica is facing challenges in regulating a plant that has long been celebrated in Jamaican culture despite legal prohibition. Ganja, as it is known on the Island, has deep cultural and religious significance. It is a sacred herb in the Rastafarian religion. Its religious and recreational use on the island has been widespread for years. As a result, many Jamaicans are not excited about it being regulated. I went to this event for two reasons. One, because Hilary Bricken, our lead cannabis lawyer out of our Los Angeles office would be speaking there. And two, because our cannabis practice has...

(Arkansas, California, Cannabis, Colorado, Compliance, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Florida, Growers, Louisiana, Manufacturing, Massachusetts, Medical Marijuana, Minnesota, New Jersey, News, Oregon, Products, United States, Vermont, Washington DC, Cultivation) More non-cannabis companies  are getting into the business of manufacturing or selling their products to cannabis growers, retailers, and consumers. Some of these ancillary cannabis businesses sell their products online using third-party marketplaces like Amazon. Ancillary cannabis businesses using marketplace providers may be required to collect sales tax from their customers and pay income tax. This post discusses some of the sales tax issues these ancillary cannabis businesses face. Sales Tax Compliance. A business that sells to an out-of-state customer is generally not required to collect sales tax on shipments to that customer unless it either owns property or employs people in the customer's state. Less contact is required for a state to impose state income tax  from an out-of-state seller. A business may be subject to a state’s income tax merely by selling products to customers located in that state. For example, a business that owns inventory located in California must...
