Regulations/Compliance

It’s been, like, a whole year since our last 420 blog post, man. And the past year made way for even more of the choicest blog posts about cannabis industry topics ranging from the business of THC, CBD, the Deltas, Medical Marijuana, hemp, and more. Our second annual “Weed Roundup” — featuring our top

Having spent nearly every day of the last three years thinking about Alabama’s medical cannabis licensing, and the past year closely following the seemingly endless litigation that continues to this day, I took special note of a recent decision of the Missouri Supreme Court affirming the denial of a cannabis license to an applicant that

There is a scene in the fantastic film Wayne’s World (cult classic or blockbuster, I don’t know; I just write blogs about cannabis) where Wayne and Garth are playing street hockey and whenever a car drives down the street they both yell “Game off!” and move the goal off the road. Once the car has

Last Thursday was License Award Day 2.0 for the Alabama Medical Cannabis Commission. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Nineteen of the applicants awarded licenses in June, before the process was halted due to then-unexplained “inconsistencies” in the scoring process, were awarded licenses the second time around. That came as no

I sound like a broken record, but I will say it again: To remain compliant in the cannabis industry requires an almost constant state of diligence. This point was reinforced earlier this month when the Mississippi Department of Health

While it appears likely that Tennessee will be the last Deep South state to legalize medical cannabis (as we wrote about here), it has always been a favorable state for the hemp industry. The Tennessee Legislature just came through for hemp operators again by passing an industry-friendly bill, SB0378/HB403, to regulate the production
