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...

Hary Herbert (R) will allow cannabis patients to use a letter from their physician to purchase medical cannabis products until the Department of Health issues ID cards at the end of the year.” Utah Gov. Gary Herbert (R) has signed a medical cannabis bill that allows patients to use letters from physicians to purchase their medicine but only through the end of the year, when the state will begin requiring state Department of Health issued identification cards, Fox13 reports.

Utah’s 1st Medical Marijuana Dispensary Opens
(Alcohol, Arizona, Cannabis, Distribution, Law, Legalization, Medical Marijuana, Production, Products, Tobacco, Training, United States, Utah, Dispensaries) By Associated Press (AP) — Utah’s first medical marijuana dispensary opened this week as the state began a slow rollout of a program that will allow residents with certain health conditions to use pot for medicinal purposes. The online application process for people to get medical marijuana cards started on Sunday. To get cards, people must first receive a recommendation from one of 60 approved health professionals, said Rich Oborn, director of the state’s Center for Medical Cannabis. The group includes doctors, nurse practitioners and physician assistants who received training to approve patient cards. The first dispensary, Dragonfly Wellness, opened in an old bank building in Salt Lake City, using the original bank vaults and structure, the Deseret News reported . “We’ve got a number of different community advocates that have been fighting for patient rights and fighting for our community so that way people have a safer alternative to medicine,” said Narith Panh, the company’s chief...

San Antonio woman’s CBD use leads to firing, lawsuit
(CBD, Management, Training, United States, Utah) The San Antonio Express News writes… San Antonio drug counselor Melanie Farr early last year started taking CBD oil to help with her multiple sclerosis. Farr, 48, placed drops of CBD oil under her tongue. It improved her gait, eased her pain and lowered her blood pressure. But it also got her fired after she failed a drug test. Now, Farr is suing her former employer for refusing to allow her to use CBD oil. She alleges that Utah-based Management & Training Corp. failed to provide her a “reasonable accommodation” in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Farr said her supervisor knew she was taking the CBD oil for her MS. “We discussed it many, many times,” she said. “I worked there a long time taking it. I’m a counselor. That’s what I do. So if I was high, somebody would have said something. It was clear I wasn’t high.” Management & Training spokeswoman Issa Arnita said she could not comment because the matter is in litigation.

Utah’s First Legal Weed Dispensary Is Open, But Where Are the Patients?
(Cannabis, Medical Marijuana, United States, Utah) Photo via Utah finally has its first active legal weed dispensary, but after just two days of business, it has become clear that the Beehive State’s medical marijuana patient base is not yet big enough to support a brick and mortar pot shop. According to CBS affiliate KUTV , Salt Lake City’s Dragonfly Wellness dispensary opened for the first time on March 1st. And while cannabis advocates had long anticipated the grand opening, Dragonfly served only 16 patients on the first day. In the days that followed, foot traffic got even worse. “On day two we had one patient come through the door,” dispensary co-owner Hoang Nguyen said . In addition to the 17 people that were actually sold cannabis during the first two days of business, Nguyen said that more than 200 people came to the shop with letters from their doctors recommending medical marijuana. But because the state requires patients to meet with a specifically-licensed physician and then acquire a state-issued MMJ ID card, those...

Beehives Own Works to Open Its Medical Cannabis Dispensaries in Utah to Combat State’s Opioid Epidemic: The Starting Line
(California, Cannabis, Education, Law, Medical Marijuana, Products, Regulations, United States, Utah, Licensee, Dispensaries, Cultivation) For Bijan Sakaki, founding partner of Beehives Own, a medical cannabis dispensary licensee in Utah, the state’s nascent market seems like an afterthought to many in the industry, but he’s determined to launch a successful business to help the state’s patients base and combat Utah’s opioid epidemic.Sakaki has been treating his ulcerative colitis with medical cannabis for the last six years, and once owned a dispensary in California that has since been sold. He and his Beehives Own team first applied for a cultivation license in Utah, and while their application ranked in ninth place, the state ultimately decided to issue eight cultivation licenses instead of the 10 that were permitted under state law.“It was bittersweet when they said they were going to release eight instead of 10,” Sakaki tells Cannabis Business Times. “After that, we focused on the retail side. We’re fortunate enough to be able to get two of the 14 licenses—one in Salt Lake City, … which is in Salt Lake County, … the...
