420 with CNW — Massachusetts Regulators Make Bold Decision on New Delivery Businesses

Although the state of Massachusetts allows the delivery of both medical and recreational marijuana, creating a system for delivering adult-use marijuana has proven to be quite a challenge. Recently, state marijuana regulators announced that they will be moving forward with plans to allow a new class of cannabis delivery business. The move has been met with both praise and criticism from stakeholders. On Oct. 20, the state’s Cannabis Control Commission (“CCC”) approved some changes to its draft regulations, allowing standalone cannabis retailers without storefronts to deliver products to customers’ homes.

420 with CNW — Senators Say DEA Rule on THC Content of Hemp Contravenes Congressional Intent

In August, the Drug Enforcement Administration (“DEA”) unveiled proposed rules that would officially put the agency in line with the 2018 farm bill. The legislation legalized the cultivation and sale of industrial hemp and its extracts, allowing farmers across the country to grow hemp under state and tribal programs. However, the federal agency’s interim final rule on hemp has been met with resistance from activists who argue it contradicts the 2018 farm bill and will hamper the growth of the nascent hemp industry. Last week, a pair of Oregon senators sent a letter to the DEA demanding changes to its…

420 with CNW — Montana Supreme Court Throws Out Case Against Marijuana Legalization Measure

On Wednesday, Oct. 21, the Montana Supreme Court rejected a lawsuit against a marijuana legalization initiative appearing on the state’s November ballot. Sponsored by the New Montana approach, the initiative would establish a legal cannabis market for adults in the state. But as the elections drew closer, the initiative was challenged by Wrong for Montana, an organization arguing that, because the initiative involves appropriating funds, it violates state statute on citizen initiatives. “We have prepared this lawsuit, and we are in the process of filing it,” said Steve Zabawa of Wrong for Montana (WFM). He cited article III, section IV…

420 with CNW — Research Finds No Link Between Recreational Cannabis Legalization and Teen Use

Since 2012, eleven states have legalized cannabis use for adults, with many voters across the country considering the same measures on 2020 ballots in numerous states. The first states to legalize the drug were Washington and Colorado; California followed suit. Most concerns about legalization center on whether making the drug legal would cause more young people to use it or whether accidents caused by impaired drivers would increase. Data collected since then shows little change in usage or impaired driving accidents. For example, a survey carried out in Colorado after legalization showed a slight decrease in the percentage of high…
