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...

Declaring CB ‘essential’ marks a watershed moment in history
(California, Cannabis, Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts, Medical Marijuana, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Stocks, United States, Washington, Dispensaries) Declaring CB ‘essential’ marks a watershed moment in history The COVID-19 pandemic has forced government officials to make life-or-death decisions about which goods and services are essential, and which are not. Essential businesses stay open; those not on the list must close to the public. In state after state, and province after province, regulators have declared medical marijuana essential. This is a watershed moment worth noting. In California, New York, Washington, Illinois, Massachusetts, Colorado, Nevada, Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, governors have closed non-essential businesses, but specifically allowed medical (and sometimes adult-use) cannabis dispensaries to remain open.

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-...

Panic Buying May Not Save the Weed Industry, After All
(California, Canada, Cannabis, China, Colorado, Drinks, Edibles, Facilities, Growing, Loans, Nevada, Production, Products, Recreational, United States, Washington) Image via The regulated marijuana industry recently experienced record-breaking sales while everyone stocked up weed, but the heady hoarding triggered by COVID-19 lockdowns may not be enough to save pot businesses from a potential economic recession. Already, sales figures have slumped back down to their typical year-over-year numbers in some weed-legal states. According to data from the weed analytics firm Headset, sales spiked from March 15-16, just as the US began to (rightfully) freak out over the coronavirus pandemic. Sales then rapidly declined from March 17-19, with a slight uptick in sales on March 20, a Friday. “The response might mark a natural decline after consumers stocked up before sheltering in place,” wrote Maggie Cowee at MJBizDaily regarding last week’s figures, “or it could be the result of economic pressures from the pandemic, which has resulted in the closure of restaurants, gyms, ski resorts, and scores of other businesses, as well as the loss of thousands of...

COVID-19 a ‘net positive’ for marijuana producer Curaleaf, says analyst
(Cannabis, Investors, Massachusetts, Nevada, United States) 3/25/20–The COVID-19 pandemic has proven a boon to U.S. marijuana producer Curaleaf Holdings Inc. with roughly a 20% boost in sales, as sales jump and many states say that cannabis is an essential service. However, Curaleaf also rescinded its 2020 outlook as a result of the virus, telling investors Tuesday that its stores were closed in Massachusetts for the time being and will likely experience a falloff in sales in Nevada because of decreased tourism.

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...

MPP: Cannabis Advocates, Medical Professionals, and Law Enforcement Officials Release Open Letter to State Leaders in Light of COVID-19
(Cannabis, Illinois, Law, Louisiana, Medical Marijuana, Michigan, Nevada, New York, Pennsylvania, Regulations, Tracking, United States, Washington, Dispensaries) Mar 20, 2020 Governors and legislative leaders urged to preserve and ensure cannabis access amid social distancing Washington, D.C. — In response to escalating efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19 by social distancing, the Marijuana Policy Project and other organizations have released an open letter urging governors and legislative leaders to take necessary actions to ensure continued safe access to cannabis in a way that is consistent with public health. In states with legal medical cannabis, the letter recommends state leaders declare medical cannabis businesses “essential,” allow medical cannabis delivery, online ordering, and curbside delivery, ensure individuals are allowed to consult with physicians by telemedicine, and extend the expiration date of medical cannabis cards until after the crisis has abated, among other recommended actions. The letter sent to leaders of states with medical cannabis or cannabidiol laws can be found here . In a separate letter, the Marijuana...

But the shutdowns have prompted perhaps an unexpected question amid the coronavirus chaos: Are medical marijuana operations considered “essential” in this new public arena? For many areas across the U.S., the answer is a resounding “yes.”Over in San Francisco, though, that wasn’t always the case. All seven counties in the Bay Area of California implemented a shelter-in-place order March 16. The order, which is in place until at least April 7, included a list of essential services that could remain open but left room for interpretation regarding other businesses, including...

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+Source Voluntarily Transitions to Medical-Only Cannabis Sales at Las Vegas Dispensary Locations
(Cannabis, Cleaning, Facilities, Nevada, Production, Recreational, United States, Dispensaries, Cultivation) The+Source announced March 19 that the company’s two Las Vegas dispensary locations will voluntarily transition to medical-only cannabis sales as an additional safety measure for its patients amid the COVID-19 outbreak.All adult-use sales will be halted until further notice, and the dispensary is also reducing its business hours.“We made that decision for consideration of the safety of our team,” Brandon Wiegand, The+Source’s regional general manager, told Cannabis Dispensary. “We felt it was a judicious action to take, given the circumstances.”The day before the company made the decision to temporarily stop adult-use sales, it saw more traffic than usual, which Wiegand attributes partly to the ambiguity businesses experienced while waiting to see if Nevada would allow its cannabis dispensaries to remain open amid the coronavirus outbreak.The state has ordered all non-essential businesses to close, but the governor’s office provided clarification March 18 that allowed the state’s...

Delivery Services Rapidly Increase Sales During Coronavirus Outbreak
(California, Cannabis, Delivery Systems, Medical Marijuana, Michigan, Nevada, Products, United States, Dispensaries) TILT Holdings’ Blackbird technology powers cannabis delivery services in California and Nevada, where the states’ governors have deemed the industry “essential” and open for business—with some caveats. Certain dispensaries may now only permit medical cannabis patients in the store, for instance. Much of the market, then, has quickly flipped over to delivery and pickup orders.Tim Conder, TILT Holdings COO, says that Blackbird data shows a 400% increase from one week to the next, citing sales numbers from mid-March—just as the coronavirus outbreak was settling the U.S. into widespread shelter-in-place dictates. Delivery had suddenly become more important than ever in this nascent industry.“The situation this week has been rapidly evolving,” Conder says. “Our first and foremost concern is protecting the safety of our employees, but also keeping them working so that everyone can continue to be paid and not use up paid leave. We’ve been really trying to balance those two things, which has...

Hotels Profit From Marijuana Legalization
(California, Cannabis, Cleaning, Colorado, Edibles, Legalization, Management, Nevada, Production, Products, Recreational, Tobacco, United States, Dispensaries, Cultivation) One of the most overlooked benefits of marijuana legalization is the boost it gives businesses that don’t have anything to do with weed. Long before so much as a gram of pot can be sold, realtors, contractors and construction crews are needed to get cultivation operations and dispensaries whipped into shape. Properties must be sold, structures built, gutted, redesigned and fitted with new electric and ventilation systems. It’s a whole process that most people don’t give a second thought, and it is one where presumably thousands of non-pot-related workers are reaping the rewards. In some cases, the all-around economic impact of legalization can be in the billions of dollars, and a lot of that starts from the ground up. But is post-legalization business dealings just as lucrative? Well, if the results of a new study hold any weight, it looks like at least the hospitality industry experiences a buoy in profits once weed goes legal. According to aresearchers at Penn State, hotels are...

Some entities, like police departments and pharmacies, are obvious in their need to remain open. But the shutdowns have prompted perhaps an unexpected question amid the coronavirus chaos: Are medical marijuana operations considered “essential” in this new public arena? For many areas across the U.S., the answer is a resounding “yes.” Over in San Francisco, though, that wasn’t always the case. All seven counties in the Bay Area of California implemented a shelter-in-place order March 16. The order, which is in place until at least April 7, included a list of essential services that could remain open but left room for interpretation regarding other...

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-...

(Alaska, California, Cannabis, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, JUSHF, Jushi, Maine, Manufacturing, Massachusetts, Medical Marijuana, Michigan, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, Organic, Pennsylvania, Products, Recreational, Regulations, United States, Vermont, Washington, Dispensaries, Recreational Cannabis, Cultivation) At 6pm on Monday, March 16th, the line of patients waiting to purchase cannabis at a popular Berkeley, California dispensary stretched 40 people deep . Normally, such a sight would be cause for celebration, but in the midst of a global pandemic , the optics were a snapshot of the issues faced by cannabis operators in a time of self-quarantine. By the following day, the neighboring city of San Francisco would be under a “shelter in place” order, requiring all residents to stay indoors except for certain, “essential” activities. Likewise, businesses were instructed to close, not including vital services like restaurants, pharmacies, and grocery stores. Members of the cannabis industry and advocates alike vociferously protested the exclusion of cannabis as an “essential” service (and thus one which would be allowed to continue modified operations for the duration of the order). Eventually, San Francisco’s Department of Public Health relented, posting to Twitter that cannabis — both...
