Welcome back to The Week in Weed, your Friday appear at what’s taking place in the planet of legalized marijuana.
As is so frequently the case, the states had been the huge newsmakers this week. In Maine, the Workplace of Marijuana Policy will get started accepting applications for retail sales on December five. As of these days, it is been 3 years precisely considering that voters authorized legalization.
Business enterprise license applications are also a hot subject in Michigan. The Marijuana Regulatory Agency began accepting them on November 1. In Wisconsin meanwhile, legislators introduced a decriminalization and expungement bill. It would also ban police searches of autos primarily based on smell alone.
And lots is going on in South Dakota. Two distinct ballot initiatives are below consideration, one particular that would legalize healthcare marijuana, and one particular that would legalize adult-use. Lawmakers are also writing new legislation to legalize hemp, soon after the governor vetoed an earlier bill.
On the federal level, the protections for healthcare marijuana firms in what employed to be referred to as the Rohrabacher-Blumenauer Amendment have been incorporated in the text of each the Home and Senate DOJ appropriations bill, for the initially time ever.
What’s going on with hemp this week? The U.S. Hemp Authority, the people today who certify hemp, have released new requirements for the market. Details on “Guidance Procedures two.0” is offered right here.
And ultimately, how do sellers of higher-finish properties distinguish themselves in the true estate market place? By throwing a “cannabis open property.”
