This was the determination from the company’s special committee of the Board of Directors. Just a few weeks ago, Green Growth Brands closed down its CBD business, which was operating as the chain of Seventh Sense stores or kiosks. The company stated at that time that the stoppage in business was due to COVID19 and the closing of malls and retail areas. However, the company was struggling prior to the virus crisis. The consent to the appointment of the receiver was filed on April 2, 2020, with the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas, in Franklin County, Ohio. Materials related to the filing can be accessed via the Franklin County Clerk of Courts electronic docket, which can be found at https://fcdcfcjs.co.franklin.oh.us/CaseInformationOnline/ .

Cookies Crush
(Branding, California, Canada, Cannabis, Clothing, Education, Florida, Genetics, Grower, Growing, Jamaica, Law, Magazines, Maryland, Media, Michigan, Production, Regulations, Social Media, Strains, United States, Dispensaries) Nothing cannabis-related in the last 10 years found its way into our hearts, blunts and closets quite like Cookies. Even in the earliest days of transition from the medical space to the adult-use marketplace, Cookies was the most well-branded company in the cannabis industry. Today, in a world where PR people are desperate to create the kind of movement Berner’s business savvy and Jigga’s genetics have ignited, nothing else really comes close in the connoisseur space. Every step in the process of Cookies’ rise had its own wild amount of hype. In the late 2000s, the Girl Scout Cookies strain , called Cookies for short, became the most sought-after new strain in the world. Then, as the second decade of the century kicked off, Cookies became the must-have cannabis clothing brand , moving from social media to storefronts. Today, Cookies as a legal marijuana company is using its branding savvy to take the multi-pronged business even further into the future. From its humble beginning as a...

Florida: Cannabis Companies Spent Big to Lobby in 2019. What About 2020?
(Acreage Holdings, ACRGF, Cannabis, CGC, Florida, Green Thumb, Growing, GTBIF, Hemp, HRVSF, Law, Medical Marijuana, Products, Regulations, Research, Seed to Sale, TCNNF, United States, Vertical Integration, Vertical Integration, Vertically Integrated, THC, Dispensaries) Cannabis businesses, which have increasingly turned to Florida’s rapidly growing market, spent $3.7 million on lobbying in the state in 2019—more than double the year before—according to a Cannabis Wire analysis. What does that portend for an uncertain 2020? What all this 2019 lobbying cash was aimed at is not entirely clear. But it came as state lawmakers, regulators, and the courts weighed issues that could profoundly impact the fledgling industry. These include a legislative cap on the amount of THC in cannabis products, a new law allowing medical patients to smoke cannabis flower, and big industry-shaping court cases challenging everything from the number of cannabis companies licensed in the state to Florida’s medical cannabis law itself. The lobbying increase also signals that the Sunshine State has been viewed as a land of opportunity for cannabis companies, especially big ones. “The Florida market looks ripe for opportunity,” said Andrew Livingston, director of economics and...

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-...

The poll , conducted by YouGov earlier this week, asked nearly 5,400 Americans whether medical marijuana dispensaries should be considered “essential services” or not. Slightly over half (53 percent) of all respondents agreed that access to medical marijuana was essential, and only 26 percent said that dispensaries should not be considered essential. A further 21 percent were undecided on the matter. As is often the case with cannabis-related polls , younger and more liberal respondents were more likely to be in favor of keeping dispensaries open. Between 54 and 59 percent of respondents between the ages of 18 and 54 agreed that medical marijuana is an essential service, but only 47 percent of those over 55 felt the same way. Democrats were also more likely (62 percent) to agree than independents (52 percent) or Republicans (43 percent...

Florida: Adult Use Hopes Are Dead For 2020. But It’s Not the End
(Cannabis, Florida, Growing, Law, Legalization, Medical Marijuana, Production, Products, Regulations, Seed to Sale, United States, Vertical Integration, Vertical Integration, THC) Earlier in 2020, legal adult use cannabis in Florida appeared likely to become a reality by year’s end. After a well-funded legalization campaign failed to gather enough support or signatures for the 2020 ballot, advocates turned their attention to the state capitol. But a bill to legalize cannabis for adult use, which would have shaken up Florida’s existing medical cannabis industry, died last week without a single hearing. Still, its sponsor vows to press ahead. So does that well-funded group, which is now aiming to put a constitutional amendment on the 2022 ballot. The legislative measure— SB 1860 —would have legalized cannabis for adults aged twenty-one and older and ended Florida’s vertical integration regulatory scheme for medical cannabis. The state’s current medical cannabis operators are required to control every aspect of production and retail, from seed to sale, which some argue unfairly benefits large companies. This regulation, meanwhile, is also at the heart of a legal...

The good news is that no states, so far, have shut down cannabis operators, as they have been deemed as essential service providers, like drug stores. We recently interviewed Kim Rivers , CEO of Trulieve, the dominant medical cannabis company in Florida with 45 dispensaries. She detailed the steps that the company has taken to keep customers and employees safe, including scanning temperatures of employees when they arrive and immediately sending workers home if they aren’t feeling well. The company has also offered free delivery to patients who are 65 or older and is piloting a mobile drive-up program for all patients.A few public companies have commented on their operations, including Cresco Labs, which issued a press release describing its response, including heightened sanitation measures and an effort to drive traffic to online ordering.

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-...
