So far, hemp crop hasn’t grown to vision in Halifax County

business

When former Gov. Ralph Northam visited South Boston to christen the Golden Piedmont Labs hemp processing and CBD-extraction facility in October 2020, state and community leaders touted the project as having the potential to restore the region to pre-NAFTA, tobacco-era economic glory.

“It’s wonderful to finally have something to really rejoice about, because we’ve had a lot of downturns,” Mattie Cowan — formerly of Halifax County Industrial Development Authority — said in 2020. “This helps farmers throughout our region; I think it’s going to be exceptional for the region.”

So far, the hemp craze has not lived up to its original hype.

Amazon, Supporter of Cannabis Reform, Continues To Ban Grinders

Grinder sellers are tired of getting dropped after being flagged by Amazon algorithms.

On one hand Amazon, the world’s largest retailer, openly supports specific pieces of cannabis legislation for reform and allows unregulated employees to consume cannabis on their own time. But on the other hand, harmless accessories like grinders are inconsistently flagged and banned from the platform, sending mixed messages, as Harris-Bricken’s Canna Law Blog pointed out.

How legal weed has changed the USA

legal weed flag

 

Turn an illicit product into a highly taxed and regulated one and you have a classic business experiment.

Do it with a little-studied psychoactive substance that has both medical promise and addictive potential and you have a public health trial, too. That’s what the US has done with cannabis, otherwise known as marijuana, pot or weed. Changes in state laws since 1996 have given 74% of the US population access to some form of legal cannabis. Now President Joe Biden is taking steps toward decriminalizing marijuana on the federal level.

NM Courts call for help with Cannabis expungement

handcuffs

The New Mexico judicial branch wants legislators to change the cannabis law that automatically expunges prior marijuana criminal charges.

The state Supreme Court says the burden of reviewing all the states records in search of cannabis offenses is too much for staffers to handle and wants to leave it up to individuals to expunge their own records.

In 2021, New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed a bill that automatically remove the public records of certain low-level cannabis offenders or redacted the sections that were cannabis related. Eligible cases include any in which the offense is no longer a crime according to the state’s Cannabis Regulation Act. This includes possession of cannabis up to two ounces.

The Winners and Losers from Biden’s big pardoning News

biden

While the marijuana industry wants cannabis to be de-scheduled, some have argued that moving the cannabis plant to a lower Schedule 2 or 3 drug could be even worse as the whole industry could be handed over to pharmaceutical companies.

As my phone lite up with news about President Biden’s big cannabis industry news, I immediately realized politics are a game of give and take, so why right now, Joe?  Why did President Biden pick Thursday to announce the pardoning of thousands of cannabis offenders and tell his Attorney General Merrick Garland to expeditiously review the cannabis plant’s listing as a Schedule 1 drug?

Is Hemp Cannabis? A recent investigation attempts to clarify the confusion

delta 8

Last week, the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (LCB) settled and closed a nearly yearlong investigation into a cannabis producer that extracted THC from hemp.

The investigation is the latest example of the struggle for regulators to determine what is cannabis and what isn't, and by extension what is legal and what's not.

Unicorn Brands of Raymond, Washington, violated rules governing license, extraction and THC tracing, according to notices issued by the LCB in October 2021. Another charge alleged criminality, but last week the LCB dropped the criminal conduct charge, and Unicorn Brands admitted to the remaining three charges.

Man claims tore sold him delta-8 instead of CBD causing him to crash into bus

car crashed

LEXINGTON - A man is now suing a CBD seller after crashing into a Lextran bus back in July.

Roy Howard is suing Hemp XR, alleging employees there sold him a delta-8 vape pen without telling him what it was, leading him to crash into a Lextran bus.

The lawsuit says Howard went to Hemp XR looking for CBD oil to help with his day-to-day anxiety. He says the employee at Hemp XR gave him a delta-8 vape pen and threw away all the packaging that contains warnings about using the product.

Howard told the employee that he didn’t want something that would get him high and that he was going to use it on his drive home. He says the employee assured him it would not.

Once behind the wheel, Howard crashed into a Lextran bus and was hurt.

Delta-8, Delta-9, and Delta-10: How do they tie into the Cannabis debate?

cbd

NASHVILLE - LabCanna sells several THC products in Nashville, like Delta-8, Delta-9 and Delta-10.

THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is a substance derived from the cannabis plant that primarily attributes to the “high” feeling when consumed in a product.

Delta-9 THC is the cannabinoid most associated with cannabis while Delta-8 and Delta-10 are essentially the less-potent cousins of Delta-9.

“Delta-8, a little bit less, is about 70% as potent as Delta-9,” LabCanna CEO Derek Besenius said. “Then Delta-10 leans more toward the energy, creative, focus side of things.”

Retail Marijuana to appear on Palmer Lake ballot this November

PALMER LAKE - A question will appear on the ballot for the town of Palmer Lake in November addressing retail marijuana.

The Board of Trustees in Palmer Lake approved a ballot measure in September that would allow voters to decide if the town should permit retail marijuana facilities. It joins Colorado Springs and Cripple Creek in Teller County, which will have similar measures on their ballots in the upcoming elections.

Palmer Lake currently allows medical marijuana sales but not recreational. This ballot question would change that.
