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...

Is it addictive?
(Cannabis, Legalization, Medical Marijuana, Stocks) Is it addictive? Before joining Leafly, I wrote for a website that connected people with addiction treatment, and shortly before that I began using medical marijuana. It was a constant challenge finding harmony between my close relationship with cannabis and the struggles of our readers, many of whom were diagnosed with a thing called “cannabis use disorder.” How could I bring myself to write about the risks of marijuana when I used it on a daily basis for my own health, and what negative consequences would my words bring to the legalization movement I was passionate about? At that ethical crossroads, it eventually occurred to me that my stance didn’t come down to taking one path or the other, but instead understanding the massive gray area between the two. That ambiguity begins with a single word that many spend their entire lives trying to define and refine. If someone asked you to define “addiction,” what would you say?

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...

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...

North Dakota Activists Say Marijuana Legalization Initiative Unlikely In 2020 Due To Coronavirus
(Arizona, California, Cannabis, Events, Growing, Idaho, Legalization, Medical Marijuana, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, North Dakota, Oregon, United States, Virginia, Washington, Cultivation) North Dakota activists announced on Thursday that they are suspending their campaign put marijuana legalization on the November ballot due to the coronavirus outbreak. 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...

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...

Arizona Legal Marijuana Campaign Asks Supreme Court To Allow Electronic Signatures Amid Coronavirus
(Arizona, California, Cannabis, Education, Events, Idaho, Law, Legalization, Medical Marijuana, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, Oregon, Recreational, United States, Washington) Several campaigns to put initiatives on Arizona’s November ballot—including one to legalize marijuana—are asking the state Supreme Court to allow electronic signature gathering amid the coronavirus pandemic, which has made in-person ballot petitioning all but impossible. 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. They stressed that the infrastructure already exists, as residents are able to use a system called E-Qual to sign ballot petitions for individual candidates running for office. While the marijuana campaign has already gathered more than 320,000 signatures , which is well over the required 237,645 signatures for statutory proposals, they have yet to be verified and activists would like to continue collection efforts to ensure that they qualify for the ballot. In the filing, the groups...

Don’t miss the full picture. Subscribe now . Canopy Growth’s board transformation is complete. And then there were none. And by none we mean none of the pre-Constellation board members at Canopy Growth. Ever since the alcohol giant invested $4 billion into the Canadian cannabis company, one of the largest in the world, one-by-one the original Canopy executives and board members have been replaced. The one that made the headlines was the ouster last year of Canopy co-founder and CEO Bruce Linton. He was subsequently replaced by David Klein, who stepped in, unsurprisingly, from Constellation. Yesterday, Canopy announced that John Bell and Peter Stringham, the last two remaining pre-Constellation board members, would “retire” from the board.

Virginia Groups Push Governor To Amend Marijuana Decriminalization Bill On His Desk
(Cannabis, Idaho, Law, Legalization, Medical Marijuana, Regulations, United States, Virginia) The governor of Virginia is being pulled in two directions by drug policy and civil rights reform groups over a marijuana decriminalization bill that lawmakers sent to his desk last month . One group, Virginia NORML, is seeking to add an emergency clause to the legislation so that its provision take effect as soon as possible, rather than on July 1 as stated in the bill’s current text. The other, ACLU’s Virginia chapter, is asking Gov. Ralph Northam (D) to request that the legislature make a series of large-scale amendments to the bill before he signs it. Those changes would remove language allowing law enforcement to prosecute people for intent to distribute for possession of less than one ounce, remove certain penalties against juveniles caught possessing cannabis and encourage minority participation in a working group that lawmakers have tasked with studying broader legalization and issuing recommendations. The ACLU’s proposals were previously considered and rejected by lawmakers,...

Cannabis Workers Claim Unsafe Conditions After Testing Positive for Coronavirus
(California, Cannabis, Law, Management, Massachusetts, Medical Marijuana, Nevada, Processing, Recreational, Regulations, Testing, United States, Dispensaries, Cultivation) The Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission announced on Wednesday that it was investigating New England Treatment Access (NETA), one of the state’s largest pot companies, for allegedly placing its employees in an unsafe working environment amid the COVID-19 crisis. NETA confirmed that two of its employees tested positive for the coronavirus this week. One employee worked at the company’s Franklin cultivation and processing center. The other worked at NETA’s Northampton dispensary. A NETA spokesperson released a statement that said both employees self-identified their symptoms, contacted management as soon as they felt ill, got tested, then voluntarily self-quarantined, the Boston Globe reported. Additionally, the NETA spokesperson said that the company hired a third-party service to “deep clean” its dispensary and cultivation facility after learning about the employees’ positive coronavirus results. However, Barbara Carrapichano, a patient adviser at NETA’s Brookline dispensary,...

New York has recorded by far the highest numbers of positive tests and deaths in the country. But before the spread of coronavirus, New York was on track to legalize, and perhaps lead the entire northeast in a coordinated approach with neighboring states like Connecticut and Pennsylvania. Cuomo, who tried to legalize through the budget in 2019, too, said this January when he announced his legislative priorities during his budget address that he believes the budget process is “the opportunity, frankly, to make some tough decisions and work through tough issues that without the budget can often languish.” In the early months of 2020, a flurry of entities filed disclosures that indicated they were lobbying on cannabis issues. Some focused on lawmakers,...
