Texas Dispensary

First Texas Dispensary Opens

Texas is known as a deep-red state with archaic cannabis laws, but progress is being made in small steps. The first Texas dispensary is now open in the lone star state. However, only a select few patients will be able to procure the medicine. On Thursday, Compassionate Cultivation will open its doors to its customers to become the first licensed cannabis oil dispensary in Texas. It is located just outside of Austin in Manchaca, the Dallas Observer reported on Monday. The news comes after a 6-year-old girl, who suffers from epilepsy, became the first Texan to receive medical marijuana prescription. However, the dispensary […]

Colorado Credit Union Approved for Marijuana Banking

After years of legal battles, a Colorado credit union has finally won conditional approval from the Federal Reserve Bank to serve ancillary canna-businesses. Back in 2014, Fourth Corner Credit Union received a charter from the state of Colorado allowing it to serve state-legal cannabis firms. Federal law prohibits any bank from dealing with a business that handles funds relating to an illegal drug, however, and the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City denied the credit union’s request for a master account on these grounds. A master account allows a bank to access the national banking system, and the credit union would not […]

Oregon Prosecutor Says There is Too Much Marijuana

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Oregon’s top federal prosecutor said Friday the state has a “formidable” problem with marijuana overproduction that winds up on the black market and that he wants to work with state and local leaders and the pot industry to do something about it. U.S. Attorney Billy Williams convened the unprecedented summit of influential federal law enforcement representatives, state officials and marijuana industry scions after Attorney General Jeff Sessions withdrew an Obama administration memo that had guided states with legalized weed on how to avoid federal scrutiny. The meeting included representatives from 13 other U.S. attorney’s offices, the FBI, the […]

Sessions Anti-Cannabis Position Challenged By House Democrats

House Democrats have taken their first step in opposing AG Jefferson Beauregard Sessions after his blatant attack on states’ rights when he rescinded the Cole Memo last month. Eleven members of the House Judiciary Committee are demanding a hearing into the decision by Attorney General Jeff Sessions to roll back an Obama-era policy on marijuana enforcement. A letter signed by 11 Democrats calls for Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte, a Republican from Virginia, to hold a hearing of the full House Judiciary Committee to discuss the recent move by Sessions, which gives federal prosecutors more leeway to launch marijuana cases in states […]

States Ask Congress to Support Cannabis Banking

A bipartisan mix of attorneys general from states that have legalized cannabis urged congressional leaders Tuesday to pass legislation that would allow banks to do Cannabis Banking. Law enforcement officials from 17 states, the District of Columbia and Guam say exempting banks that service cannabis businesses from federal criminal and civil penalties would provide safeguards for a multibillion-dollar industry operating largely on cash transactions. In the letter addressed to House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and other Congressional leaders, the signatories asked Congress to advance the Secure and Fair Enforcement Banking Act introduced last year. “The […]

New Regulations For Oregon Hemp Come Down

As of January 5, The Oregon Liquor Control Commission(OLCC) is enacting new rules for hemp regulation. Hemp was previously regulated by The Department of Agriculture. The new law left hemp in a state of limbo from the end of 2017 until today, when the new rules were officially announced. The new state law requires hemp growers or processors to obtain an OLCC certificate to bring their products into the OLCC system. Also, OLCC-licensed marijuana processors will need a special endorsement to process hemp. The Oregon Department of Agriculture already licenses hemp growers, processors (called handlers) and seed providers. The state […]

California Marijuana Laws, We Point Out The Details

Passed by voters in November 2016, Proposition 64 legalized recreational cannabis for people 21 and older. The initiative allowed for possessing, transporting, and sharing up to an ounce of cannabis and eight grams of cannabis concentrate, as well as growing as many as six plants at home. But unlike other states that have legalized weed, California has more than […]

Rescinding Cole Memo

Attorney General Targets Legal Cannabis, Rescinding Cole Memo

In a shocking, and possible disastrous move, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has rescinded several Obama-era directives that discouraged enforcement of federal marijuana laws in states that had legalized the substance. This could spell doom for the progress made by states like Colorado, Oregon, and as of January 1, California. Cali is expected to become the largest marijuana industry in the US. Well, it was. With this move and the daily chaos of the inept Trump administration, who knows how this will shake out? But for now, it’s smart to take this seriously. In a memo sent to U.S. attorneys Thursday, Sessions […]
