United States: Holding Up The Green: Hart-Scott-Rodino And Its Impact On Cannabis M&A Transactions

Although the federal government seems to have turned a blind eye to the legalization of the medical and even recreational use of cannabis in certain states, they have not relinquished their duty to maintain competitive markets in the U.S. Over the past year, the Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") and the Department of Justice ("DOJ") have used their powers under the Hart-Scott-Rodino ("HSR") Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 (the "HSR Act") to investigate mergers and acquisitions in the cannabis market, even though the operations of such business are essentially illegal under federal law.

Lex Blog Report: Italy Moves toward Legalising Cannabis… for Everyone

Lex Blog Report: Italy Moves toward Legalising Cannabis… for Everyone

The Italian Parliament has established an intergroup on the legalisation of cannabis following calls to address the need for its decriminalisation and shortages of medical cannabis. More than 50 members of Parliament already have applied to join the intergroup, mainly from the left. For now, no one from the centre-right has asked to participate. The impetus behind this movement is multifaceted but at the forefront is Walter de Benedetto, a patient with rheumatoid arthritis potentially facing prison for growing nine marijuana plants to assuage his pain. The movement is supported by 25,000 signatures to date and aims to rekindle the 2016 citizens’ initiative to legalise cannabis.

Proposition 215 Conversions: Read the law! The California Legislature anticipated this problem

A few days ago, we published a short note that described how a Cannabis Cooperative Association (“CCA”) could be utilized to circumvent the confiscatory nature of Internal Revenue Code (“IRC”) §280E[i]. Several our readers, including some purported experts, advised us that our suggestion would not work for them because the business organization with which they were involved pre-dated the enabling legislation for CCAs..............Read the law! The California Legislature anticipated this problem.

Pennsylvania Aims To Move Forward Both On Medicinal & Adult Use Cannabis Programs

Pennsylvania Aims To Move Forward Both On Medicinal & Adult Use Cannabis Programs

A new effort to legalize recreational cannabis is coming to the Keystone State. Pennsylvania lawmakers Daylin Leach and Sharif Street are hoping to build support for their latest proposal, Senate Bill 350 which they introduced on October 15th. The bill would allow for both home delivery and the automatic expungement of many previous criminal convictions related to marijuana. The bill’s supporters estimate it will generate $500 million in tax revenue within twelve months.

To Lobby or Not to Lobby, Part 2

"In its quest to usher in a new world of legal profit where the global weed trade is no longer controlled by drug traffickers, the rapidly growing American cannabis industry is using a very old strategy: showering lobbyists with money and unleashing them on Congress.
