Redbird Scholar: Ralph Weisheit explains Illinois marijuana legalization law

Weisheit said the most interesting aspect of the bill is the placement of social equity as its cornerstone.  

“This idea of making up for past injustices, making up for a heavy emphasis on small-scale marijuana arrests makes it very different,” he said. “It is also an interesting experiment. One of the great things about the United States is that each state has its own system for dealing with this issue and it makes for a giant experiment. You can see how different things work in different states.”

Lex Blog Article: Intellectual Property In The Cannabis Industry – Protecting Innovations And Products, Part II (Patents)

We previously explored the applicability of trade secret protection to cannabis-related inventions. Here, we provide an overview of patent trends in the cannabis industry and how cannabusinesses can use patents to protect their technological, agricultural, genetic, or other innovations. In short, cannabis-related inventions may be patentable and cannabusinesses should work with counsel to identify which innovations may benefit from patent protection.

Green Light Law Group: Cannabis-Infused Beer: The Potential & Risks

Recently, the OLCC decided to officially ban CBD-infused alcoholic beverages, including beer.  This should come as no surprise to anyone following the beer industry.  Beer (and other alcoholic beverage producers) are regulated both at the state and federal level.  The federal entity responsible for overseeing the manufacture, labeling, and product safety in the beer industry is the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (the “TTB”).  Any brewery that desires to produce and sell beers must get a state alcohol license and a TTB permit.

Pennsylvania’s Medical Marijuana Act at Issue in Recently Filed Complaint

In 2016, Pennsylvania enacted its “Medical Marijuana Act” (MMA), which permits individuals suffering from certain conditions to use marijuana for medicinal use. Several provisions in the MMA impact employers. For instance, the MMA makes it unlawful for an employer to “discharge, threaten, refuse to hire or otherwise discriminate or retaliate against an employee regarding an employee’s compensation, terms, conditions, location or privileges solely on the basis of such employee’s status as an individual who is certified to use medical marijuana.” In other words, taking adverse action against an employee based solely on the individual’s status as a medical marijuana cardholder would likely be considered discrimination under the MMA.

Federal Courts Divest Themselves of Subject Matter Jurisdiction in Two Recent Cannabis-Related Proceedings

Earlier this month, two federal courts—one in the Southern District of New York, another in the Western District of Washington—analyzed the issue of whether a federal court has jurisdiction to hear what would otherwise be routine breach of contract cases involving cannabis. Even though the cannabis-based businesses were legal at the state level in both cases, both courts came to the conclusion that the federal Controlled Substances Act (“CSA”) likely divested them of jurisdiction to hear the claims.

German courts confirm sales bans on CBD containing food

According to the latest version of the EU Novel Food Catalogue, EU regulators consider that CBD-containing foods and dietary supplements are classified as novel foods. The Novel Foods Regulation (EU) 2015/2283 defines as “novel” any food which has not been used for “human consumption” to a significant degree within the EU before May 1997. As a result, CBD-containing foods require an authorisation to be legally placed on the EU market according to Article 6 (2) of the Novel Foods Regulation.
