Brazil official sees cannabis cultivation bill making progress in December

Brazil official sees cannabis cultivation bill making progress in December

Federal Deputy Paulo Teixeira told Marijuana Business Daily, a Brazilian bill that would legalize the production of medical marijuana and industrial hemp will soon have its first debate before its anticipated approval in the chamber before the end of this year on the floor of the lower house of Congress. The bill, PL 399-2015, would have far-reaching implications for Latin America’s largest medical cannabis market, which is currently dependent on imported products. According to Teixeira, who heads a special medicinal cannabis commission in the lower house, in recent months the bill struggled to pass through the legislative process largely because of the country’s local elections, “paralyzed parliamentary work.” The representative told MJBizDaily, “With these elections behind us, I expect the lower house to quickly start debating and approve the bill before the end of the year.”

Los Angeles selects 200 social equity cannabis retail license finalists

Los Angeles selects 200 social equity cannabis retail license finalists

A much-anticipated list of the 200 finalists in the contested fight for social equity retail licenses for marijuana was released by the City of Los Angeles. However, it is unclear why any of the 200 businesses may be able to open their doors to customers. Following a settlement over the summer involving a case that tried to throw out the outcomes from the licensing window in September 2019, the L.A. Department of Cannabis Control announced the list of the 200 license winners. The settlement resulted in the number of business licenses available being doubled, from 100 to 200. Spokesman for the Cannabis Equity Retailers Association, Johnny Sayegh, said the earliest any of the 200 will be open is the second quarter of 2021. He noted, “There are people in the community who are basically ready to go but just have to get the temporary approval.”

Congress takes up historic bill to decriminalize cannabis

Congress takes up historic bill to decriminalize cannabis

While the cannabis industry begins take root state by state, Congress will discuss whether to withdraw marijuana from the Federal Controlled Substances Act once and for all. On Friday, the House will vote on the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act, or MORE Act, which would decriminalize cannabis and clear the way to erase nonviolent federal marijuana convictions. The MORE Act will also establish pathways for ownership opportunities in the developing industry, allow veterans to receive Veteran Affairs doctors’ medical cannabis recommendations and set up sources of funding to reinvest in communities disproportionately affected by the drug war.

Another Scientist Sues DEA To Cultivate Marijuana For Research Purposes

Another Scientist Sues DEA To Cultivate Marijuana For Research Purposes

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is facing yet another lawsuit over its marijuana policy. A scientist is now urging a federal court to compel the agency to grant his application to produce cannabis for research purposes. In a filing submitted on Wednesday to the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts, a longtime marijuana researcher backed by the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) called on DEA to either approve his application to be a federally registered marijuana cultivator or at least take action on the request. It’s been four years since Lyle Craker of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst submitted the application without hearing back from DEA. In general, the agency has yet to decide on more than 30 proposals to grow cannabis for research purposes in the timeframe.

Marijuana legalization opponents turn to courts to shoot down state ballot initiatives

Marijuana legalization opponents turn to courts to shoot down state ballot initiatives

Private citizens and public officials, sometimes joined by governors, increasingly are filing lawsuits to kill statewide marijuana legalization ballot initiatives, including some that voters approved in November. The legal challenges appear to be long shots to thwart legalization efforts in Mississippi, Montana and South Dakota. Even if the lawsuits are unsuccessful, it’s unclear whether they could delay the implementation of new marijuana markets worth hundreds of millions of dollars. The lawsuits come at a particularly litigious time in this country, as evidenced by President Trump’s legal campaign to try to overturn the presidential election results. In the case of marijuana ballot initiatives, opponents are taking special aim at politically conservative states.

How Growing More Weed Can Help California Fix Its Water Problems

Last Tuesday, the Humboldt County Courthouse in Eureka, California was swarming with cannabis lawmakers. Three marijuana industry regulation bills were signed by Governor Jerry Brown on Friday.
