Most Americans Want Medical Cannabis Dispensaries to Stay Open During Lockdown
(Alcohol, Arizona, California, Cannabis, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Legalization, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Medical Marijuana, Mexico, Michigan, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, United States, Washington, Dispensaries) Most Americans believe that states should not restrict access to legal medical cannabis during “shelter-in-place” measures, according to a new poll . 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...

We’ll continue to update as regulators announce new policies. So far, during the COVID-19 pandemic, cannabis sales are through the roof as consumers stock up in anticipation of supply chain disruption. But, despite this upswing, cannabis companies are bracing for impact. As Cannabis Wire reported this week, a dilemma has hit the nascent industry: to close or not to close? Already, Canopy Growth chose to close nearly two dozen shops in Canada, and we’re tracking how other companies are reacting. But what happens in the case of forced closures? Cannabis regulators will have to weigh tough decisions in the coming days as businesses, from gyms to bowling alleys to bars, are asked to close as part of broader efforts to contain the spread of the virus. (While Canadian consumers can legally order cannabis online, should closures occur, changes are taking place north of the border. On...

What Is Salvia, and Is the Psychoactive Drug Still Legal?
(California, Events, Georgia, Guam, Law, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, United States, Virginia, West Virginia) If only salvia could speak, maybe we’d know what the hell happened after we smoked it. When people hear the term “salvia,” they may think of a number of things. Some will no doubt be immediately transported back to memorably awful college experiences. Others may fondly recall the popular (if questionably helpful) YouTube tutorials posted by Erik Hoffstad, who once taught us the joys of “Gardening on Salvia.” Unquestionably, there are also those who just remember that one time Miley Cyrus smoked some . To fully understand this plant, however, the first thing to know about Salvia divinorum is that people have been using it for at least hundreds of years. Indeed, in the mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico, Mazatec Indians have relied on Salvia divinorum for centuries. For them, this psychoactive herb from the mint family was given a place of honor at ceremonial events. Though the Mazatec prefer to extract the juice from crushed leaves to consume in a tea, other options for consumption include...

Americans Want Medical Marijuana Dispensaries To Stay Open As ‘Essential Services,’ Poll Finds
(California, Cannabis, Colorado, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Medical Marijuana, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Products, Recreational, South Dakota, United States, Washington, Dispensaries) A majority of Americans believe that medical cannabis dispensaries should be kept open as “essential services” amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to a new poll. The survey asked simply: “Do you believe medical marijuana dispensaries should or should not be considered essential services?” Fifty-three percent said the cannabis providers should be regarded as essential, 26 percent said they shouldn’t and 21 percent said they didn’t know. YouGov. As state governments across the country grapple with the COVID-19 outbreak, officials have had to make difficult decisions about which businesses are critical enough to remain open and which should be forced to temporarily shut down. In many states with legal cannabis—including California, Colorado, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts and New Jersey—officials have determined that medical marijuana dispensaries are, in fact, essential services that can continue to operate. Many states have also given the “essential” designation to recreational...

(Cannabis, Compliance, Maryland, Medical Marijuana, Products, United States, Dispensaries, Security) All weekend and all day Monday, the team at Mana Supply Co. ’s Edgewater, Md., location was moving patients and their vehicles through the new drive-thru lanes—keeping the traffic flow even and safe off State Rt. 2 and keeping new social distancing measures in mind every step of the way. The drive-thru opened on Friday, just in the nick of time.Co-owner Christopher Jensen says business has increased about 30% in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak and the vigorous spike in demand for cannabis products. The sudden move into crisis mode across the globe has put businesses like Mana Supply Co. on the lookout for new efficiencies, new ways of engaging their patient base and ensuring everyone has access to products they need. Courtesy of Mana Supply Co. Last week, the state of Maryland issued its “social distancing” measures, which greenlit curbside pickups for medical cannabis dispensaries.

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-...

Cannabis Industry Grapples with COVID-19 Outbreak, Maine Issues First Adult-Use Licenses: Week in Review
(Cannabis, China, Extraction, Food, Grower, Growing, Investment, Investment Firm, Maine, Maryland, Medical Marijuana, Minnesota, Packaging, Processing, Products, Stocks, Strains, United States, Washington, Dispensaries, Cultivation) Cannabis Industry Grapples with COVID-19 Outbreak, Maine Issues First Adult-Use Licenses: Week in Review Consumers across the U.S. are stocking up on the essentials: toilet paper, food and cannabis. That means long lines at dispensaries as customers in many markets rush to purchase what they can in anticipation of shelter-in-place orders and business shutdowns.

California Psilocybin Legalization Activists Request Online Signature Gathering Amid Coronavirus
(California, Cannabis, Events, Hemp, Legalization, Maryland, Medical Marijuana, New York, United States, Washington, Dispensaries, Cultivation) A campaign to legalize psilocybin mushrooms in California is asking the state to allow online signature gathering for their ballot petition, arguing that the coronavirus outbreak necessitates an alternative means to put the psychedelic reform measure before voters in November. Decriminalize California, the group behind the proposed initiative, partnered with two other campaigns in the state to write a letter to the governor, secretary of state and attorney general, requesting the emergency policy change. It’s the latest in a series of similar requests from drug policy reform campaigns across the U.S., with activists scrambling to qualify their measures for state ballots amid the pandemic. The California letter asks that the governor or state legislature “authorize the collection of electronic signatures for statewide initiatives during the current COVID-19 pandemic,” adding that this “request concerns not only our own initiative but all other initiatives actively collecting signatures...

Baltimore To End Most Drug Prosecutions Amid Coronavirus Outbreak
(California, Cannabis, Distribution, Legalization, Maryland, New York, Portugal, United States, Washington, Dispensaries) The top prosecutor in Baltimore is moving to dismiss pending charges against people accused of most drug crimes to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. In a letter to staff on Wednesday, State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby listed a series of offenses that should not result in incarceration. Drug possession, attempted drug distribution, prostitution, traffic offenses and public urination are among the offenses that shouldn’t land people being bars at this point, according to Mosby’s guidance. Putting these individuals in jail could exacerbate the public health crisis by exposing inmates to the virus, she said. “This policy is in place for now as an attempt to save lives,” Mosby told Marijuana Moment in response to a query about whether people should be prosecuted for drug offenses in general, outside of the current public health crisis. “We will assess the policy at a later date and time when this global pandemic is over.” For the time being, pending drug possession charges should be...

Bill To Shield 200,000 Marijuana Convictions Heads To Maryland Governor’s Desk
(Cannabis, Development, Legalization, Maryland, Medical Marijuana, New York, United States) The Maryland legislature approved a bill on Tuesday that would prevent almost 200,000 prior marijuana convictions from being viewed on a public database. The legislation, introduced by Del. David Moon (D), now heads to Gov. Larry Hogan’s (R) desk. If enacted, the bill would make it so convictions for cannabis possession that occurred prior to October 1, 2014 would not be viewable on the Maryland Judiciary Case Search. The proposal originally included a provision providing for automatic expungements, but that was removed in committee. Still, reform advocates celebrated the development and said expungements would be included in marijuana legalization legislation they will be pushing for in the next session. Separately, a bill to expand the state’s current decriminalization policy by increasing the possession threshold from 10 grams to one ounce is facing a time crunch. While the House of Delegates passed the measure last week , the coronavirus outbreak is prompting the legislature to...

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-...

Tennessee Senate Committee Approves Medical Marijuana Bill
(Cannabis, Edibles, Law, Legalization, Maryland, Medical Marijuana, Tennessee, United States, Pharmaceuticals) A Tennessee Senate committee approved a restrictive medical marijuana legalization bill on Wednesday. The legislation as originally drafted requested that the state Health Department study the possibility of a medical cannabis program and report back on its findings by December. But per an amendment from the bill’s sponsor that was approved by the Senate Health and Welfare Committee, that language was stricken and a measure was inserted providing for a medical cannabis program in the state. A staffer told Marijuana Moment this procedure is common practice in the legislature to open the door to more wide-ranging legislation.
