Cannabis Regulators Respond to Coronavirus Concerns

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...

New study from US reveals that vast majority of medical marijuana dispensed has THC levels of up to 15%
(California, Cannabis, CBD, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Medical Marijuana, Mexico, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Products, Recreational, Research, Rhode Island, United States, Vermont, Washington, Websites, THC, Dispensaries, Pharmaceuticals) The European Pharmaceutical review reports….According to new research, more than 90 percent of the legal marijuana products offered in medical dispensaries in the US are much stronger than what clinical studies have shown doctors recommend for chronic pain relief. “We know that high-potency products should not have a place in the medical realm because of the high risk of developing cannabis-use disorders, which are related to exposure to high tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content products,” said the study’s lead author, Dr Alfonso Edgar Romero-Sandoval, associate professor of anaesthesiology at Wake Forest School of Medicine, part of Wake Forest Baptist Health, US. “Several earlier studies showed that levels of up to 5 percent THC – the main psychoactive compound in marijuana that provides pain relief as well as intoxication – were sufficient to reduce chronic pain with minimal side effects.” The goal of this study was to evaluate the advertised THC and cannabidiol (CBD) content of legal...

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...

Joe Biden Mistakenly Says He Would ‘Legalize’ Marijuana Before Correcting Himself
(Cannabis, Law, Legalization, Missouri, New Hampshire, Research, United States) Former Vice President Joe Biden mistakenly said that he would “legalize” marijuana during a new interview, quickly correcting himself to clarify that he would simply decriminalize possession of cannabis. It’s at least the second time in recent weeks that the candidate has appeared to voice support for a legalization policy his campaign says he does not actually endorse. “There is evidence that we have to do some more study on impact on mental acuity,” the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate said in the interview released on Saturday by KMOV-TV in St. Louis, Missouri. “I would legalize—I would decriminalize and I would provide for the ability of the researchers to get in and make sure we got it right this time.” Biden gave a similarly awkward response to a question about his marijuana stance last month, telling the Marijuana Policy Project’s Don Murphy during a conversation ahead of the New Hampshire primary that “it is at the point where it has to be basically legalized” before...

Bill To Legalize Marijuana Sales Officially Passes Vermont House Of Representatives
(Advertising, Alcohol, Cannabis, Investors, Law, Legalization, New Hampshire, Products, Testing, Texas, United States, Vermont, THC, Cultivation, Retail Sales, Funding) The Vermont House of Representatives finalized its approval of a bill to legalize the retail sale of marijuana on Thursday, but Gov. Phil Scott (R) said he’s not happy with at least one key component of the legislation. Though the House cast a strong initial vote in favor of the legislation on Wednesday, the measure required one additional vote to formally clear the chamber. Members gave third reading passage to the bill in a voice vote. The floor approval follows action in multiple committees in recent weeks. The House Government Operations , Ways & Means and Appropriations panels each amended and cleared the legislation. Vermont legalized the possession and cultivation of cannabis for personal use in 2018, but there is currently no way for consumers to legally purchase marijuana. The current bill would resolve that by establishing a commercial cannabis market in the state, creating various categories of business licenses, and setting tax rates on legal sales. Because the Senate...

Last updated Feb. 27, 2020.There’s no doubt that cannabis will play a major role in the 2020 elections, and it’s almost certain to be a sticking point in any presidential debate—especially as a litmus test in the Democratic primaries.President Donald Trump has gone back and forth on the matter, but has mostly just stayed out of it. His former attorney general, Jeff Sessions, was a notorious prohibitionist who repealed the Cole Memo in January 2018, and Trump’s White House has developed a mysterious interagency called the Marijuana Policy Coordination Committee. No one is very clear on what that means, but BuzzFeed reporter Dominic Holden has described it as a “secret war on weed,” citing independent quotes from departments involved it the work.

Vermont House Approves Bill To Legalize Marijuana Sales
(Cannabis, Drug Testing, Education, Facilities, Grow Facilities, Hemp, Law, Legalization, New Hampshire, Production, Products, Regulations, Research, Testing, United States, Vermont, Virginia, THC, Cultivation) The Vermont House of Representatives approved a bill on Wednesday to legalize the sale of marijuana in the state. Following weeks of committee action advancing the legislation, the full chamber cleared the bill in a 90-54 vote. Vermont lawmakers approved legislation to legalize low-level possession and home cultivation of cannabis for personal use in 2018, but the system lacks a retail component. The current proposal would resolve that by implementing a tax-and-regulate model similar to those in most other legal states. The Senate already approved the bill with a veto-proof margin during the first half of the legislative biennium in 2019. This year, it was amended and approved by the House Government Operations , Ways & Means and Appropriations Committees . “Since 2004, we have taken a step-by-step approach to reform,” Rep. John Gannon (D) said in his opening remarks, adding that the legislation “benefits from the research conducted by the governor’s commission on marijuana.” “The...

Bill To Legalize Marijuana Sales Heads To Vermont House Floor Following Key Committee Vote
(Cannabis, Law, Legalization, Massachusetts, Medical Marijuana, Mexico, New Hampshire, New Mexico, United States, Vermont, THC, Cultivation, Funding) Another Vermont House committee approved a bill to legalize the sale of marijuana on Monday, with a vote by the full chamber expected in the coming days. The Appropriations Committee advanced the legislation with a tally of 6-5, clearing its path for floor action—likely on Wednesday and Thursday. The Vermont legislature legalized possession and home cultivation of cannabis for adult use in 2018, but there is currently no way for consumers to legally purchase marijuana. The bill moving through the legislature would establish a commercial cannabis market in the state, create various categories of business licenses, establish a government agency to oversee the new industry and set tax rates on legal sales. It would also set limits on product potency, capping THC in cannabis flower at 30 percent THC and limiting concentrates to 60 percent THC.

(Cannabis, China, Education, Iowa, Legalization, Medical Marijuana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, South Carolina, United States) Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is touting his support for marijuana legalization to attract South Carolina voters ahead of the state’s primary on Saturday. In a new television ad, the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate outlined his criminal justice reform plan—emphasizing that he will legalize cannabis and expunge prior marijuana convictions, among other actions. “Our criminal justice system lets the crooks on Wall Street who destroyed our economy walk free, while one in three black men go to prison. Bernie Sanders is fighting for justice and always has. He’ll fix our broken justice system so that it works for everyone, not just the wealthy,” the ad, narrated by actor Danny Glover, Sander’s campaign surrogate , states. “He’ll end police misconduct and cash bail, legalize marijuana and expunge past convictions and invest in jobs and eduction instead of jails and incarceration.” Jamie Dimon and Lloyd Blankfein have their photos flashed on the screen while a narrator says "crooks on Wall...

US Hemp Roundtable Latest State Information Alerts
(Cannabis, CBD, Colorado, Compliance, Florida, Growing, Hemp, Hemp Products, Kentucky, Law, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Products, United States, THC) North Carolina This session’s amendment to Senate Bill 352 , initially filed in May 2019, is an excellent example of a progressive and informed stance taken by the State of North Carolina. The amended bill explicitly removes hemp products containing the less than 0.3% THC from the definition of a Schedule VI controlled substance under North Carolina law. This is consistent with the Roundtable’s position that CBD products are distinctly different than marijuana products and should be expressly excluded from any controlled substance law affecting the latter. As you recall, we fought hard to defeat SB315 last session (click here for a brief summary and the Roundtable’s post related to the same) and are pleased that North Carolina has now changed their position toward the hemp and CBD industry. Florida Last year, Florida enacted one of the most hemp- and CBD-friendly laws in the nation. As with any comprehensive legislation, there is still room for improvement.

New Hampshire House of Representatives Passes Cannabis Legalization Bill
(Alcohol, Cannabis, Law, Legalization, New Hampshire, Products, United States, Vermont, Washington, Cultivation) Concord, NH — PRESS RELEASE — On Thursday, the House of Representatives approved a bill (236-112) that would legalize possession and limited cultivation of cannabis for adults 21 and older in New Hampshire—similar to Vermont’s legalization law. H.B. 1648 now heads to the Senate for consideration. Sponsored by Rep. Carol McGuire (R-Epsom) and a bipartisan group of seven cosponsors, H.B. 1648 would allow adults 21 and over to possess up to three-quarters of an ounce of cannabis, five grams of hashish and up to 300 mg of cannabis-infused products (currently a violation punishable by a civil fine). It would also permit cultivation of up to six plants (including up to three mature ones) at home in a secure location that is not visible from other properties. A summary of H.B. 1648 is available here .The “Live Free or Die” State is currently surrounded by jurisdictions where cannabis is legal for adult use. If H.B. 1648 passes, New Hampshire will join the 11 states (and Washington, D.C.)...

Kentucky House Approves Medical Marijuana Legalization Bill
(Advertising, Alabama, Cannabis, Edibles, Kentucky, Law, Legalization, Medical Marijuana, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Products, Recreational, South Dakota, United States, Dispensaries, Cultivation, Retail Sales) The Kentucky House of Representatives approved a bill to legalize medical marijuana in the state on Thursday. Following a successful vote in the Judiciary Committee last week, the full chamber passed the legislation in a 65-30 vote. It now heads to the Senate. If enacted into law, patients suffering from qualifying medical conditions and who have a doctors’ recommendations will be able to obtain cannabis from licensed dispensaries. The bill would establish a regulatory body to develop rules for the program and determine which medical conditions qualify individuals for marijuana. Smoking cannabis would be prohibited under the measure, and it would be up to regulators to decide whether to allow cannabis edibles. At least 25 dispensaries would have to be permitted under the proposal. Rep. Jason Nemes (R), the sponsor of the legislation, said in opening remarks that he’s proud to have drafted the “tightest medical marijuana bill in the country.” However, he expressed disappointment over...

New York Governor Will Visit Legal Marijuana States To Take Lessons Back Home
(California, Cannabis, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Law, Legalization, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Products, United States, THC) New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said on Thursday that he plans to visit at least three states that have legalized marijuana to learn from their experiences and incorporate components of their cannabis laws as New York moves ahead with plans to end prohibition. The governor, who last month included legalization in his budget request for the second year in a row , said that while lawmakers often talk about their objectives for a legal market such as promoting social equity, “many of those goals haven’t been met.” “I also want to make sure [legalization] is done correctly. You look at states that have legalized marijuana, many of them have generated more questions,” Cuomo said. “I’m going to visit Massachusetts, Illinois and California or Colorado, which are three states that have legalized it and have different versions.” The governor said he and his team will meet with officials in those states and “discuss what they’ve done, what’s worked, what hasn’t worked.” “Has the social equity...

New Hampshire House Approves Marijuana Legalization Bill
(Cannabis, Growing, Law, Legalization, Medical Marijuana, New Hampshire, Production, United States, Vermont, Cultivation) A bill to legalize the personal use, cultivation and gifting of marijuana in New Hampshire is one step closer to becoming law. The state House of Representatives on Thursday approved the legislation on a 236-112 vote, advancing the measure to the Senate. The proposal would not legalize commercial production or sales of cannabis. Instead, adults 21 and older would be allowed to grow a limited number of plants at home and legally give up to three-quarters of an ounce of marijuana to other adults. The measure resembles neighboring Vermont’s 2018 cannabis law, which legalized low-level possession and home cultivation but does not allow for sales. Legalization is tremendously popular in the famously independent state, as one lawmaker acknowledged before a House committee voted last month to advance the bill to the floor. “I think that the legalization of cannabis is more popular than the legislature itself or the governor or any other political entity in the state of New Hampshire,” House...

New York Medical Marijuana Guide
(Alcohol, Cannabis, CBD, Cigarettes, Development, Drinks, Drug Testing, Edibles, Food, Foods, Growing, Hemp, Law, Legalization, Massachusetts, Medical Marijuana, Medical Records, New Hampshire, New York, Oils, Pennsylvania, Products, Recreational, Regulations, Research, Testing, United States, THC, Dispensaries, Extracts) Marijuana has been a long-standing subject of controversy in the U.S for decades. Even though 47 states have legalized cannabis for some forms of medical use , New York significantly falls behind its neighbors in terms of marijuana legislation. This guide will uncover key facts about recreational and medical marijuana use and the history of its laws in the state of New York. History of Marijuana Legislation in New York The first mentions of marijuana in the state date back to the 1850s when the New York Daily News published a letter labeling cannabis as “East-Indian hemp” that could be used as an effective antidote for the poison of rabies. Almost 50 years later, The New York Times described marijuana as a harmless-looking drug. Medical use of “weed” was allowed in the state at that time, but everything changed in 1914 when cannabis was added to the list of restricted drugs as a result of adopting the Boylan Bill – a legal act designed to deal with rampant drug addiction problems in...

New Hampshire Bill Considers Selling Regulated Cannabis In Liquor Stores
(Advertising, Alcohol, Cannabis, Legalization, Maine, Marketing, Massachusetts, Medical Marijuana, New Hampshire, Pesticide, Products, Rhode Island, Strains, United States, Vermont, Cultivation, Retail Sales, Funding) Marijuana would be sold in state liquor stores under a proposal a House committee heard on Wednesday. House Bill 1663 would legalize retail marijuana sales as surrounding states have done but would not allow advertising or other enticements. CLICK ON IMAGE FOR MORE INFO FROM LEGISCAN The bill’s prime sponsor, Rep. Jerry Knirk, D-Freedom, said selling cannabis in liquor stores will allow the products to be regulated, limit potency and eliminate pesticide residues. “This would not allow a retail market outside of the liquor stores,” he told the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee Wednesday. “My local paper the Daily Sun in Conway has full page ads from the stores in Maine.” Under the bill, a person would have to be 21 or older to purchase marijuana, the same age limit as alcohol sales. The bill was opposed by the New Hampshire Association of Chiefs of Police, New Futures, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Manchester and others. “This is legalization and commercialization...

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...

US Hemp Roundtable- States Update
(Beverage, Cannabis, CBD, Compliance, Food, Hemp, Hemp Farming, Hemp Products, Iowa, Law, Maryland, New Hampshire, Products, Regulations, Supplements, United States) State Alert: Iowa At first glance, HSB 646 appears innocuous. It makes non-substantive changes to some of Iowa’s hemp-related definitions and even provides a new definition for “consumable hemp products” that includes inhalable, ingestible, and topical products. However, the bill also requires that hemp products be produced in compliance with USDA’s Interim Final Rule (“IFR”) and sold in compliance with the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (“FDC&A”). As discussed here earlier, many states are not adopting the IFR in 2020, and hemp products from those states could be prohibited. Worse yet, Iowa’s Attorney General has opined that it is illegal under the FDC&A for CBD to be sold as dietary supplements or as a food and beverage additive. Iowa Hemp Supporters are encouraged to use our State Action Center to urge state legislators to defeat HSB 646. State Alert: Maryland Just last week, HB 1506 was introduced. It removes hemp from the definition of cannabis, but is also defines...

New Hampshire Is About to Approve Medical Marijuana Home Grows
(Cannabis, Law, Medical Marijuana, New Hampshire, Products, United States, Dispensaries, Cultivation) The New Hampshire state Senate approved a bill on Thursday that would allow qualified medical marijuana patients to grow their own cannabis plants at home. The bill now heads to the state’s House of Representatives, where strong support for a similar measure was thwarted last year by a veto from Republican Governor Chris Sununu. Under Senate Bill 420 , qualified medical marijuana patients and their registered caregivers would be permitted to grow up to three mature cannabis plants, three immature plants, and 12 seedlings. Home gardens would be required to be located out of public view and have a canopy not exceeding 50 square feet. Democratic Rep. Tom Sherman said the nearly 8,000 registered medicinal cannabis patients in New Hampshire can find it difficult or too expensive to get their medicine from licensed dispensaries, where the selection of cannabis products available is often limited. Home cultivation also allows patients to control how their cannabis is grown and what chemicals...
