US Firm, Frost Brown Todd Publish Latest State By State: Hemp Update May 2019

The firm writes,”Hemp growth programs took root in four different states, expanded in two states, and legislation awaits the governor’s signature in another state in the month of May. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) also approved a policy permitting hemp-derived products on airplanes so long as they meet the 2018 Farm Bill’s requirements. Still, there were a few setbacks as officials in Georgia, Hawaii, Iowa, and Virginia adhere to onerous FDA guidance. Below is a review of the latest changes in the hemp listed by state.”

Article: Working Through The Weeds Of Cannabis Laws: Prop 64, FMLA, And ADA

Abimael “AJ” Bastida at law firm, McManis Faulkner writes, “Proposition 64 changed marijuana laws. What many do not realize is that it did not change employment laws. Employers recognize societal norms are changing with the passing of Prop 64. A new era has commenced and the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) will play a large role in how cannabis is handled in the workforce.”

Canada: Anti-Money Laundering Considerations In Cannabis Finance

Paul A. Kunynetz, Arie van Wijngaarden and Ana Badour of McCarthy Tétrault LLP write, “While the right financing structure can be a critical advantage to any cannabis-related business, it is also important to remember that there are legal considerations involved, including in respect of anti-money laundering (AML) matters. These legal considerations include the preference of some cannabis retail customers to using cash as a payment method, concerns around privacy, and the risks associated with the supply of cannabis to ensure its provenance from legal sources. Financial institutions, cannabis businesses, and investors should therefore be very mindful of AML considerations.

Lowndes, Drosdick, Doster, Kantor & Reed, P.A: CBD Trademarks Out of the Weeds

Lawyer, Stephen Thomas, writes.”The continuing internal tension between various agencies and offices of the U.S. federal government over how to address the (seemingly) unstoppable growth of the marijuana industry in light of current federal law has been a bit like watching the earth’s tectonic plates in action. It may not seem like much is happening, but occasionally there is movement, albeit small, that belies and relieves some of the tension. One such movement occurred on May 2, 2019, when the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued new guidance for registration of certain CBD products as result of the 2018 Farm Bill.”
