Welcome again to The Week in Weed, your Friday have a look at what’s taking place on the earth of legalized marijuana.
This week, the information centered on President Biden’s federal pardon and evaluation of marijuana scheduling. Assuming you’re all on top of things on that matter, let’s take a look at what *else* is occurring. The District of Columbia determined to not examine unlicensed hashish sellers. New York dispensaries will open this yr. Main League Baseball now has an official CBD provider. And at last, The Onion had one thing to say concerning the pardon/scheduling information.
DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
Alone amongst jurisdictions which have legalized hashish, DC doesn’t permit the acquisition or sale of marijuana. Possession is authorized; exchanging cash shouldn’t be. However the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and effectively in our nation’s capital. Companies have sprung up that supply items and providers to the general public, that includes a “reward with buy” of hashish. Is that this authorized? Good query. The native authorities scheduled inspections of those unlicensed dispensaries for final month, however known as them off simply as they have been supposed to start. The suspicion is that closing down retailers and placing individuals out of enterprise proper earlier than an election wouldn’t be a very good search for Mayor Muriel Bowser (D). Council member Phil Mendelson (D) warned that not coping with this market will solely permit it to develop.
New York Governor Kathy Hochul (D) says adult-use hashish dispensaries will open in 2022. After the state acquired greater than 900 functions, as we reported final week, there was some concern as to how lengthy it will take for the state to approve candidates. The Governor says 20 dispensaries will open this yr, and 20 extra every month after that.
We reported in July that Main League Baseball (MLB) allowed groups to have CBD corporations as sponsors. Now, Charlotte’s Internet has been named the official CBD of MLB.
The Onion weighed in on the pardon information.
