Lawyers Pen Song Advising Texan Clients Not To Eat Their Weed Now Has Half A Million Views On You Tube

“Tampering with evidence doesn’t make any sense. Let the cops find your weed,” the two sing in a folk-country style, complete with a Waylon Jennings-esque drawl while strumming guitars on their music video, “Don’t Eat Your Weed.” “There’s a kind of probation called deferred adjudication, and there’s lots of other ways to plead. It’s just a misdemeanor. You can hire a cleaner to get it off your record.”

California Regulated Cannabis: Reboot in 2020!!

The merriment of the holiday season has not overtaken California’s cannabis industry as 2019 comes to a close. The Legislature, Governor Newsom’s office, cannabis regulatory agencies (principally BCC, CalCannabis, CDPH, and CDTFA), law enforcement agencies, and a multitude of other groups and individuals interested in this industry have been confronted with the reality of a disaster. To paraphrase my father’s recurring admonition when something I attempted went wrong, “It is your own damn fault because you did not think it through.”

It’s Not Easy Being Green

Cannabis sustainability has a long, winding road ahead before perceptible change occurs and progress slowly begins. As a society, we are obsessed with "green," regardless of your definition: money, cannabis, recycling, or our politics. "Green is the new black," as the colloquial adage goes, and a black stain is exactly what the Cannabis industry is currently leaving in its massive wake. The need for renewability, recyclability, and regulation is desperately required in all aspects of the cannabis production and process, from cultivation to end user.

California Suspends Additional Cannabis Licenses

Some California licensees are starting off 2020 in a regulatory predicament. In early January, California’s Bureau of Cannabis Control (“BCC”) welcomed the new year with a bang by suspending another 252 cannabis licenses. This most recent round of suspensions comes on the heels of the BCC’s, and other regulating agencies, first round of suspensions. In November of last year, over 400 licenses were suspended because of regulatory noncompliance. Additionally, California’s Department of Food & Agriculture (“CDFA”) acted earlier in February to suspend a number of cannabis cultivation licenses as well. All of these suspensions have resulted from the licensees failing to obtain the proper track and trace credentialing in the cannabis tracking system, Metrc.

A new class-action lawsuit claims budtenders and other people who have worked in dispensaries may be overworked, underpaid, forced to work through lunch, paid in weed, not paid at all, or paid under the table. All of these practices are now huge risks that companies need to avoid. Entrepreneurs must be 100 percent compliant to move into the licensed marketplace.

As we entered 2020, twelve states had legalized adult-use, recreational marijuana. Forbes recently reported that eighteen states could join that number, totalling 30 by the end of this year. This movement was, of course, spurred by Colorado voters’ watershed passage of Amendment 64 back in 2012.
