Coronavirus Delays: Where Do Cannabis Bills Stand Across the US?
(Advertising, Alabama, Canada, Cannabis, CBD, Connecticut, Edibles, Kentucky, Law, Legalization, Medical Marijuana, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, Research, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, United States, Vermont, Cultivation) As 2020 kicked off, advocates were pushing for cannabis law reform along the two main tracks: ballot and bill. But just as the signature gathering geared up in anticipation of the November election, and lawmakers were deep in debates, the coronavirus outbreak hit the United States. Now, state governors, lawmakers, and other officials have shifted their energy toward flattening the curve. Whether this spells delay or demise for certain cannabis reform efforts in 2020 remains unknown. Cannabis Wire has reached out to the sponsors of major medical and adult use legislation to see where things stand. Here’s what they had to say. (Editor’s note: There are hundreds of pieces of more incremental cannabis legislation, addressing everything from taxes to advertising, but Cannabis Wire is focusing on bills that would bring, for example, medical or adult use sales to a state for the first time.) ALABAMA Senate Bill 165 would legalize medical cannabis sales; currently, state law allows only for...

Financial Markets Publisher Says “If Trump Is Reelected, Cannabis Reform Is Dead Until 2025”
(Alabama, Banking, Cannabis, Investing, Law, Legalization, Medical Marijuana, Recreational, Regulations, United States, Funding) A number of clues suggest federal marijuana reform efforts will fall flat if Donald Trump wins the 2020 election. Says the publication. They write The green rush is limited in most countries by federal regulations, and that glass ceiling is definitely in place within the United States. With a record-tying 66% of Americans polled by Gallup favoring the nationwide legalization of pot, as of October 2019, it would seem logical that Congress and the president would look for a way to amend marijuana’s existing scheduling. But the fact is that if President Trump is reelected to a second term, the idea of cannabis reform would almost certainly be dead until he leaves office in January 2025. If Trump is reelected, say goodbye to federal marijuana reform for four more years While President Trump has proved amicable to the idea of allowing states the opportunity to decide their own fates on medical and/or recreational weed, as well as regulate their industry if they choose to legalize, he’s...

Alabama Senate Approves Medical Marijuana Bill
(Advertising, Alabama, Cannabis, Edibles, Facilities, Hemp, Law, Legalization, Medical Marijuana, Products, Research, Seed to Sale, Testing, Topicals, Training, United States, THC, Dispensaries) After hours of tense debate, the Alabama Senate voted on Wednesday to pass a bill to legalize medical marijuana in the state. Lawmakers voted 22-11 in support of the legislation, which would allow qualifying patients to purchase certain medical marijuana products from state-licensed dispensaries. Cannabis intended for smoking or vaping would be prohibited under the proposal, meaning only preparations such as tablets, topicals and certain infused edibles would be available. “I think in this day and time, with the opioid crisis, we need to try alternative medicines that will help people,” said Sen. David Sessions (R), who voted to pass the bill. With the Senate’s approval on Wednesday, the proposal now heads to the House, where its prospects are unclear. Speaker Mac McCutcheon (R) has been noncommittal, telling reporters last month that he was in “wait and see mode.” The state’s attorney general, meanwhile, has urged lawmakers to oppose any move to legalize. The bill, SB 165 , would...

Minority Marijuana Business Group Defends Bernie Sanders’s Comments On Legalization And Race
(Alabama, Cannabis, Legalization, Massachusetts, Media, United States) The country’s first diversity-focused marijuana trade association came to Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-VT) aid on Thursday, issuing a statement “to affirm our support and appreciation” for the 2020 presidential candidate’s recent comments on minority involvement in the legal cannabis industry. During a Democratic primary debate on Tuesday, Sanders pledged not only to end federal marijuana prohibition and expunge past criminal records if elected, but also to help people of color find an economic foothold in the industry. “We are going to provide help to the African American, Latino and Native American communities to start businesses selling legal marijuana rather than let a few corporations control the legalized marijuana market,” he said. It’s an argument familiar to most legalization advocates, and several recent state marijuana laws have included provisions aimed at ensuring social equity in the industry for communities that have been targeted by the war on drugs. But the proposal didn’...

The 2018 Farm Bill gives the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulatory authority over hemp cultivation at the federal level. In turn, states have the option to maintain primary regulatory authority over the crop cultivated within their borders by submitting a plan to the USDA. This federal and state interplay has resulted in many legislative and regulatory changes at the state level. Indeed, most states have introduced (and adopted) bills that would authorize the commercial production of hemp within their borders. A smaller but growing number of states also regulate the sale of products derived from hemp. In light of these legislative changes, we are presenting a 50-state series analyzing how each jurisdiction treats hemp-...
