Passion for Medical Cannabis Fuels AAA Pharmaceutical Alternatives’ Transition to Maine’s Adult-Use Market: The Starting Line
(Cannabis, Events, Facilities, Law, Legalization, Maine, Medical Marijuana, New York, Stocks, Training, United States, Pharmaceuticals) Passion for Medical Cannabis Fuels AAA Pharmaceutical Alternatives’ Transition to Maine’s Adult-Use Market: The Starting Line New York’s cannabis advocates had a renewed sense of hope at the dawn of the new year, when Gov. Andrew Cuomo vowed in his January State of the State address to renew his push to legalize adult-use in 2020 after last year’s legalization efforts stalled in the legislature. Cuomo seemed to be making good on his promise when he included a plan to legalize and tax adult-use cannabis in his initial state budget proposal in January, but as the COVID-19 outbreak turned into a global pandemic and the April 1 deadline to approve the sprawling budget loomed, hope that legalization could be accomplished through the budget process began to fade. Cuomo told reporters March 31 that it was “not likely” that the legalization proposal would be included in the final budget, according to a New York Post report , adding that there was “too much” to accomplish and “too little time...

Pure Harvest Cannabis Group Is Trading At A Large Discount Compared To Asset Value
(Acquisition, Beverage, California, Cannabis, CBD, Colorado, Distribution, Florida, Investors, Management, Manufacturing, Media, Medical Marijuana, Michigan, Monitoring, Processing, Products, Recreational, Regulations, Stocks, United States, Vertically Integrated, THC, Recreational Cannabis) Pure Harvest Cannabis Group Is Trading At A Large Discount Compared To Asset Value Since 2014, Colorado has been the epicenter of the US cannabis industry and we have seen countless leading brands become national names after establishing market dominance in Colorado. Although California and Florida are two of the most talked about cannabis markets, Colorado represents a massive opportunity, and this is an opportunity that we are excited about. Last year, we saw increased interest in the Colorado cannabis market after Governor Jared Polis passed regulation that would allow cannabis companies to raise capital, complete go-public transactions, acquire other companies, or be acquired. 2020 has been a banner year for the Colorado cannabis market and has been highlighted by the acquisition of The Green Solution, a leading US cannabis retailer. Over the next year, we expect to see further consolidation of the Colorado cannabis market and this is a trend that our readers need to be aware of...

Acreage Announces Operational Updates, Executive Resignation, Suspension of Guidance and Termination of Proposed Deep Roots Acquisition
(Acquisition, Cannabis, CBD, Maine, Manufacturing, Medical Marijuana, Products, Stocks, Testing, United States, Vertically Integrated, THC, Pharmaceuticals, Cultivation) Acreage Announces Operational Updates, Executive Resignation, Suspension of Guidance and Termination of Proposed Deep Roots Acquisition As a medical cannabis patient and caregiver, Aaron “Roy” Scalia understands the power cannabis has to benefit those who are suffering. After sustaining a brain injury in a motorcycle accident in 2002, Scalia turned to medical cannabis during his recovery, and in 2015, he founded AAA Pharmaceutical Alternatives as a licensed medical caregiver to serve patients in central Maine. “Through the use of CBD and THC, I’ve been able to really cope with everything that I’ve been faced with and because of that, I’m able to help others,” Scalia tells Cannabis Business Times. “People can relate because they may have had an accident or they’ve been through trauma in their lives, [and] we can share our stories. … I can talk about things that helped me and a lot of times, it helps them.” When Maine voters legalized adult-use cannabis in 2016, Scalia saw it as an...

Cannabis Consumer Behavior Alters With Covid-19 Quarantine: Edibles & Drinks Surge
(Alcohol, Beverage, Cannabis, Drinks, Edibles, Events, Marketing, Packaging, Products, Topicals, United States) So many things have been turned upside down with this pandemic, and saying we live in interesting times would be an understatement. Industries and businesses are being demolished and altered in ways unheard of just a month ago, and a rare few are actually booming. For the cannabis industry, one of the biggest changes leading to a boom is that as a whole cannabis is now being considered an “essential” part of life nationwide. The level of legitimacy this brings to the industry would have normally taken another decade. Delivery services and curb side pick-up have been implemented across the country also erasing years of necessary effort overnight. But overall, the complete change in cannabis consumer behavior has been one of the most interesting developments to witness for many of us. As reported by Vice , politics and current events are major sources of anxiety for many in the United States and this leads to an increase of unhealthy behaviors like drinking alcohol, smoking, or eating...

Congresswoman Wants Ban On DC Marijuana Sales Lifted Through Coronavirus Legislation
(Cannabis, District of Columbia, Loans, Massachusetts, Medical Marijuana, Recreational, United States, Washington, Dispensaries, Cultivation, Retail Sales) A congresswoman is calling on the government to end a policy prohibiting Washington, D.C. from legal marijuana sales, arguing that the jurisdiction is in particular need of tax revenue from cannabis commerce due to the coronavirus outbreak. Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) has repeatedly condemned the congressional rider barring the District of Columbia from allowing retail sales that has been extended each year since 2014, shortly after local voters approved a ballot measure to legalize low-level possession and home cultivation. But given the need for resources to combat the pandemic, she said a reversal of the provision should be included in the next COVID-related relief bill. “At this moment of unparalleled need, D.C. should be able to collect tax revenue from all available sources, like every other jurisdiction, including from recreational marijuana, which is believed to be widely used in the District,” the congresswoman said in a press release on Friday, adding that D.C. was...

In a Facebook post, Legalize ND said “we are going to have to face a few hard realities going forward” as businesses are shuttering, public events are being cancelled and individuals are encouraged to shelter in place. The pandemic means in-person signature gathering can’t take place, and the state does not allow for alternative signing options such as by mail or online. “Due to the virus all of our major avenues for signature collection have been cancelled or indefinitely postponed, and going door to door is not safe for both those knocking and those getting knocked,” the group said. “Businesses will continue to collect, but we don’t want to create another vector for the coronavirus. As a result, at this time if something major doesn’t change we will not be able to make the 2020 ballot.” Legalize ND said there’s no way...

Doctor Calls for "Temporary Approval" of Psychedelics to Treat COVID-19 Trauma
(Food, United States, Wisconsin) This week, a psychiatrist called on the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to grant “temporary approval” for psychedelic therapies to help patients struggling to deal with the coronavirus pandemic. On Wednesday, Dr. Morgan Campbell, a resident psychiatrist based in Wisconsin, wrote an opinion piece for the Sacramento Bee asking the FDA to bypass its standard approval protocols so therapists can immediately begin administering psychedelics such as MDMA (“ecstasy”), LSD, and psilocybin (“magic mushrooms”) to patients suffering from depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress (PTSD) exacerbated or caused by the COVID-19 crisis. In fact, Campbell noted that FDA approvals are long overdue. “Twenty years of trials for psilocybin, and 10 years for MDMA, show that they outperform currently approved medications for depression and PTSD,” he wrote . “Because of how many years MDMA and psilocybin have been tested for safety and efficacy, there is better quality evidence for these psychedelics...

Illinois Sold Even More Weed in March Than February, Despite COVID-19 Lockdown
(California, Cannabis, Illinois, Indiana, Law, Massachusetts, Medical Marijuana, Netherlands, Nevada, Products, Regulations, United States, Dispensaries) Cannabis sales in Illinois have soared since the Prairie State legalized adult-use weed sales in January . The state's legal weed market seems so robust, in fact, that the coronavirus pandemic isn't even slowing it down. Last month, even as state and local governments ordered residents to remain in their homes, demand for legal weed remained strong. According to a preliminary report from the state Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, adult-use shops sold more than 812,000 legal weed products in March, amounting to nearly $36 million in total sales. “Three straight months of consistent adult-use cannabis sales show there is — and will continue to be — strong support and demand from consumers,” said Toi Hutchinson, Governor Pritzker's top cannabis advisor, according to Marijuana Moment . On March 21, Governor J.B. Pritzker issued a stay-at-home order mandating that all non-essential businesses close in order to stop the spread of COVID-19 infections. The governor wisely...

AZ Cannabis Initiative Backers Are Trying to (Legally) Gather Signatures Online
(Arizona, Cannabis, United States) By Associated Press (AP) — Backers of four voter initiatives are asking the Arizona Supreme Court to let them gather qualifying signatures online now that the state is under a stay at home order and other restrictions because of the coronoavirus outbreak. The proponents asked the high court Thursday to allow them to use the same electronic system that candidates for state and federal offices now use to gather signatures. They say there’s no other safe and effective way for them to get their proposals on the ballot. They argue that the requirement for just initiative backers to collect signatures in person violates the state constitution. That’s because the ability of voters to write their own laws through the initiative process is a fundamental right under the constitution and the current emergency prevents them from doing that. They face a July 2 deadline to collect nearly 238,000 valid signatures from registered voters. “The campaign has over 300,000 signatures which is well over...

Smart and Safe Arizona, the group behind the cannabis measure, along with three other campaigns, filed a petition with the court on Thursday, requesting that it direct the secretary of state to let them digitally collect signatures.

The company blamed the COVID19 virus and other “uncontrollable factors.” The company also said it was suspending its previous 2020 financial targets and will provide a more detailed update on its first-quarter earnings call tentatively scheduled for May 13, 2020. “Although we are facing difficult times, I remain optimistic about the U.S. cannabis industry and Acreage in particular,” said Acreage Chair and Chief Executive Officer, Kevin Murphy. “But as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the very difficult decision to furlough several of our employees and close certain facilities while we navigate through the crisis.
