Another Anti-Cannabis RICO Case Goes Up in Smoke, But an Existential Threat Remains

Another Anti-Cannabis RICO Case Goes Up in Smoke, But an Existential Threat Remains

The proliferation of cannabis-related businesses in states that have legalized marijuana – medical and/or recreational – has sparked a foreboding trend in the courts. Opponents have sought to use the heavy weapon of RICO, the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, to prevent or close such facilities. Although these efforts to target cannabis-related businesses with the a statute originally designed to fight organized crime have so far failed, cannabis-related businesses are not yet in the clear and the specter of RICO liability remains.

The Art of Branding & Identity

The Art of Branding & Identity

The rise of social media has taught us that good storytelling and branding can go a long way to project success for any brand. They’re a gateway to customer conversations that when well done, can lead down a rabbit hole of discovery for any consumer to journey across your brand. Everyone loves an underdog, and in Cannabis more than any category represents an emerging class of new brands, new products and new experiences for consumers to listen, learn, sample and engage with. Writes our correspondent Glenn Johnson.

Federal Legalization – Then What?

Federal Legalization - Then What? - It is fascinating to step back and observe how the mindset of many in the cannabis industry seems to work. Let's think through a couple of scenarios and have a peek at the landscape in a post-legalization world. Let's begin with the following:

Cannabis: Legal Age and Public Places – the Consultations Are Over

The special consultations on Bill 2, An Act to tighten the regulation of cannabis, have now been completed and a report thereon was tabled in Quebec’s National Assembly on February 21, 2019.It should first of all be noted that a clear majority of the groups heard opposed the principal amendments proposed by Bill 2, particularly those pertaining to the legal age for consumption and the blanket prohibition on consumption in public places.

New Jersey Moves Closer to Legalization

New Jersey Moves Closer to Legalization

New Jersey took another big step towards legalizing the recreational adult-use of cannabis last week, but legislators stopped short of taking the historic vote. After a breakthrough in negotiations over taxes and regulatory oversight between Governor Murphy and Senate President Sweeney in February, the scene appeared to be set for legalization. A vote was scheduled for Monday, March 25 but was postponed due to a lack of support. Leaders now hope to work out remaining sticking points and pass legislation before June.

Pennsylvania Medical Cannabis – Chasing the Green

Pennsylvania Medical Cannabis – Chasing the Green

The Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) reported that almost $100 million in medical marijuana sales occurred between February 15, 2018, and February 15, 2019, the first full year that medical cannabis was available to Pennsylvania patients. More than $40 million in sales occurred between growers and dispensaries. Pennsylvania does not tax sales to patients, but does tax transactions between growers and dispensaries at a rate of 5%. Thus, in the first year of licensed sales, the Commonwealth received approximately $2 million in tax revenue from medical cannabis.

Florida Medical Marijuana: It’s Time To Get Rid of Vertical Integration

Florida Medical Marijuana: It’s Time To Get Rid of Vertical Integration

In Florida, operators of Medical Marijuana Treatment Centers (MMTCs) are required to handle all aspects of the cannabis trade, including growing, processing and dispensing. This means that an operator either needs to have expertise in all of these areas or very quickly go into business with someone who does and create a business structure that would be acceptable to all included parties and the State. This structure is different than in Colorado, for example, which allows separate, legally operated businesses to provide services in which they have the expertise to medical marijuana businesses.
