Delaware Legislators Re-Introduce Adult Use Cannabis Bill

Delaware Legislators Re-Introduce Adult Use Cannabis Bill

Ganjapreneur report. “Recently introduced legislation to legalize adult-use cannabis in Delaware contains much of the same language as the state’s failed attempt from last year — this time, however, the proposal lacks home-grow provisions, which may make it easier to accept for certain lawmakers.” We’d say there’s something fundamentally wrong if the only legislation that gets through forces you to buy into a system where the market is controlled by others.

International Cannabis Bar Association Looking For Board Members

By the same people who brought you the NCBA. We’ll be interested to see if this USA centric outfit will create something international. And, no, we suggest a few Canadian attorneys doth not an international organization make. We fear it’ll be like our favourite US international sports competition, “The World Series” which seems for the past century only to have featured US baseball teams.

Oregon Passes Cannabis Export Bill

Oregon Passes Cannabis Export Bill

Thanks to the Oregon Cannabis Retailers Association for bringing this to our attention. It’s a big step but the next big question is who will be buying it and will new rules or legislation be needed at the other end to do so. For example ; can Oregon export to Canada to plug the supply gap ? We presume that’s a big ask until the UN move on their scheduling. And there is this …”Before it would allow exports to occur, the bill requires an indication from the federal government that interstate commercial cannabis transactions won’t be prosecuted under federal law.”

First It Was Washington, Then California, Then NJ Ahead Of Legislation & Now Over 350 Michigan Communities “Ban” Regulated Cannabis Retail

The Detroit Metro Times reports that so far, at least 386 communities, or about a quarter of all of Michigan’s cities, villages, and townships have adopted ordinances banning the businesses, according to data from the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs. And apparently that’s just the start. In NJ figures got up to 50% so we won’t be surprised to see more on the way.

So.. Who Are The Attorney Generals Asking For Cannabis Banking Legislation To Go Through Congress ?

So.. Who Are The Attorney Generals Asking For Cannabis Banking Legislation To Go Through Congress ?

“We are a bipartisan group of state and territorial attorneys general who recognize that the states, territories and federal government share a strong interest in protecting public safety and bringing grey market financial activities into the regulated banking sector. To address these goals, we urge Congress to advance legislation that would allow states and territories that have legalized certain use of marijuana to bring that commerce into the banking system.”

Document: Examination of Marks for Cannabis and Cannabis-Related Goods and Services after Enactment of the 2018 Farm Bill May 2, 2019

Document: Examination of Marks for Cannabis and Cannabis-Related Goods and Services after Enactment of the 2018 Farm Bill May 2, 2019

Introduction: Use of a mark in commerce must be lawful under federal law to be the basis for federal registration under the U.S. Trademark Act. See generally Trademark Manual of Examining Procedure (TMEP) §907. The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) refuses to register marks for goods and/or services that show a clear violation of federal law, regardless of the legality of the activities under state law. A determination of whether commerce involving cannabis and cannabis-related goods and services is lawful requires consultation of several different federal laws, including the Controlled Substances Act, 21 U.S.C. §§801 et seq., the Federal Food Drug and Cosmetic Act, 21 U.S.C. §§301 et seq., and the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, Pub. L. 115-334 (the 2018 Farm Bill), which amends the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946 (AMA). The USPTO issues this examination guide to clarify the procedure for examining marks for cannabis and cannabis-derived goods and for services involving cannabis and cannabis production following the 2018 Farm Bill.
