Former NBA player Lamar Odom is the new co-owner of Higher Life CBD Dispensary, an Indianapolis company that sells cannabidiol products online and in a downtown store.

Odom told the IBJ he was researching CBD options when his management was contacted by Higher Life founder Brandon Howard, who founded his store at 901 N. Pennsylvania St. in 2018.

“I’ve played in 14 NBA seasons, so every once in a while one of those lingering issues comes up,” Odom said. “I wondered how I could treat myself. I thought CBD would be a great deal for me.

Howard said he frequently tries to connect with celebrities for potential partnerships in the CBD industry, an area where a hemp-derived compound is marketed as an aid to reduce anxiety and improve sleep routines. .

Higher Life products have not been designated by the United States Food and Drug Administration as safe and effective. The company does not claim that its products treat or prevent any diseases or medical conditions.

Odom, who won two NBA titles as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers, has his name and likeness attached to seven Higher Life products, including a “sports tincture.”

Containing TCHV, or tetrahydrocannabivarin, the sports tincture is sold in 4,000-milligram bottles for $100 each. The product is ingested using a graduated dropper under the tongue.

Odom said he thinks the sports tincture reduces inflammation and increases energy.

“It definitely works,” Odom said. “It takes about 15 minutes. It absorbs and gives pep to your approach.

In 2017, Odom told US Weekly magazine that drug use had killed his will to train and get fit. Two years earlier, he had been found unconscious with cocaine in his system at a brothel in Nevada.

He completed rehab in 2017. He also teamed up this month with cannabis company Flight Path in California, where he lives and where marijuana use is legal.

Odom said he uses cannabis to keep him away from “the stronger things”.

“Everyone’s path to sobriety is different,” he said. “We haven’t all had the same turn with our struggles. For me, personally, it helps.

In Indiana and at the federal level, marijuana remains illegal and is listed as a Schedule I drug, a level reserved for drugs with high potential for abuse and no medical benefit, according to the United States Drug Enforcement Administration.

Howard said he founded Higher Life as a lifestyle brand to help customers achieve optimal mental and bodily function.

After investing in Higher Life this month, Odom became co-owner of the company with Howard.

“We’re going to change the market,” said Odom, who expressed his intention to speak with Howard daily. “I will try to stay involved as much as possible.”

Two years after Montana voted to legalize marijuana for adult use, residents of more than a dozen counties and cities returned to the polls this month to consider local action to ban marijuana. sales or add taxes on marijuana for adult use and for medical purposes.

Taken together, the metrics indicate continued statewide interest in capitalizing on Montana’s booming cannabis industry. Although several campaigns to ban sales for adult use were successful, they tended to take place in rural areas and small towns. All of the tax measures for adults have passed, and almost all of the votes on the medical marijuana tax have also passed.

Montana institutes a 20% flat tax on adult use statewide and a 4% tax on medical marijuana sales. The local option taxes that Montanans voted in this election cycle all add a 3% local tax to adult use and/or medical sales.

Between the state’s launch of its adult cannabis program on Jan. 1 and the end of September, vendors sold $228 million worth of cannabis in Montana. Two-thirds of those sales are from adult customers and the rest from patients using medical marijuana. The state generated more than $33 million in sales tax revenue during the same period.

All counties that have approved a local tax will share the resulting revenue equally: the county keeps half; 45% of the money is divided between the municipalities of the county; and 5% is returned to the State to cover administrative expenses.

“It’s not a partisan issue in Montana. Montanans of all political stripes supported legalization in 2020 and they continue to do so, as evidenced by last night’s votes in favor of marijuana taxation and sales,” said Pepper Petersen, President of Montana Cannabis. Guild, at Montana Free Press.

THE GRANITE COUNTY EXCEPTION

The most dramatic marijuana vote of Election Day took place in Granite County, where residents narrowly rejected a measure, by a margin of 52 to 48, to turn the country from “red” to “ green”.

The campaign followed a long battle between supporters and opponents of legal cannabis. In 2020, county residents voted to legalize cannabis for adult use; during the 2021 legislature, lawmakers used this metric to determine which Granite County would allow sales.

In the primary elections in June, however, residents voted to reverse the trend and ban sales for adult use. The move forced the county’s only retailer — Top Shelf Botanicals in Philipsburg — to suspend adult sales in September. (The store can continue to sell marijuana to state-certified medical patients.)

Store manager Kendrick Richmond led the charge to relegalize sales in the county, along with his wife, Justine.

While Granite County opted out this week not to allow sales, residents passed separate measures to tax both medical marijuana and adult-use sales, should the county reinstate the latter at a later date.

Across Montana, the Dawson County Clerk and Recorder’s Office confirmed that the small town of Richey also voted to ban the sales. Sixty-four residents supported the ban and 32 opposed it.

GREAT FALLS VOTE FOR SALES

In Great Falls, residents voted by a margin of 52 to 48 to allow cannabis sales within city limits. The decision follows a court case that allowed a marijuana business to open within the city limits unless voted otherwise.

Cascade County, home to Great Falls, has also passed local option taxes on medical and adult-use cannabis sales, with wider markups. The small town of Cascade, on the other hand, voted overwhelmingly to ban sales for adult use.

MORE AFFIRMATIVE SALES REFERENDUMS IN GALLATIN COUNTY

Residents of Manhattan and West Yellowstone also considered banning sales during this week’s election, but both measures failed. The results were particularly pronounced in Manhattan, where 69% of voters rejected the ban.

Gallatin County residents have passed separate measures to tax adult and medical marijuana. The county had already passed the same measures in the June primary election, but an administrative misfire necessitated an overhaul.

DEER LODGE CHOOSES AND CHOOSES

Residents of Deer Lodge in Powell County shared their votes on a series of very specific measures regarding marijuana.

Deer Lodge has given the go-ahead to testing labs, manufacturers and stores (including combined-use licenses reserved for Indigenous-owned businesses), but has decided not to allow any further cultivation or transport ventures. within the city limits. On Thursday, the Montana secretary of state’s website notes that the measure allowing cultivators — currently separated by just two votes — is subject to a recount.

MOST OTHER TAX MEASURES ARE SUCCESSFUL

Almost every other measure of local taxation on Montanan ballots has proven effective.

In Flathead County, an adult-use sales tax was implemented, while a separate measure to tax medical marijuana narrowly failed.

The vote in Sanders County went spectacularly: While an adult use tax passed, a measure to tax medical marijuana failed by two votes.

Madison and Mineral counties passed adult and medical sales taxes; in both cases the adult use tax was applied with much higher margins. Valley County residents also passed both taxes.

“Almost every county that could have adopted a voluntary tax has done so. There’s an air of permanence that comes with taxation,” said Petersen of the Cannabis Guild. “We feel like marijuana is here to stay in counties that have passed the local option tax.”

Voters in two states approved the legalization of recreational marijuana in Tuesday’s election, joining the growing list of states with regulated cannabis markets for adult use.

Maryland and Missouri join 19 other states and the District of Columbia in legalizing recreational marijuana, while legalization proposals have failed to pass in Arkansas, North Dakota and South Dakota.

Here is an overview of the five measures.

Maryland

Following the passage of Maryland issue 4adults in the state will be allowed to own up to 1.5 ounces, or two marijuana plants, beginning July 1, 2023.

The amendment also allows those arrested for marijuana possession to be expunged and for those serving sentences for simple possession to have their sentences reviewed. It would also establish a cannabis business relief fund for small businesses, as well as minority and women-owned businesses, entering the cannabis industry.

Now, state lawmakers will decide licensing and taxation.

“Nothing has been set in stone about taxation or how these dollars will be distributed, which makes the upcoming legislative session extremely important,” said Kevin Ford, executive director of Uplift Action Fund, which advocates for the Equity in Maryland’s Marijuana Industry.

“Now the real work begins to ensure that the rollout of Maryland’s adult use market provides equal opportunity and fair resources,” he said.

Missouri

Missouri voters approved state Amendment 3which removes existing bans on marijuana and allows adults to buy and own up to three ounces and grow up to six flowering plants at home.

A 6% sales tax will be used to facilitate automatic disbarments for certain nonviolent marijuana-related offenses, veterans’ health care, drug treatment and the state’s public defender system.

It also adds at least 144 new small business license holders to existing businesses licensed for medical marijuana, according to Legal Missouri 2022, the advocacy group that sponsored the measure. New licensees will be selected by lottery.

“Missouri is poised to become a tentpole for industry in the Midwest, and we believe Missouri will be an $800 million to $1 billion market,” said John Mueller, CEO of Greenlight, a cannabis company.

Arkansas

Arkansas voters failed to pass Number 4which would have allowed up to an ounce of marijuana to be purchased from licensed retailers.

The measure would have implemented a 10% sales tax, with funds earmarked for law enforcement, operations of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, and drug treatment programs authorized by the Arkansas Drug Court Act, according to the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture.

The measure did not provide for the removal of criminal records for convictions for marijuana or for growing plants at home.

North Dakota

North Dakota Measure 2which the voter rejected, would have allowed possession of up to one ounce of marijuana.

It also reportedly licensed 18 retailers and seven grow facilities, imposed a 5% excise tax and allowed individuals to grow three cannabis plants at home.

He failed, with 55% of North Dakotans voted against and 70% of votes counted.

Marijuana legalization also failed to pass in the state when it appeared on ballots in 2018, losing by a 41% to 59% margin.

South Dakota

Vothers in south dakota rejected Measure 27which would have legalized the possession of up to one ounce of marijuana.

Individuals could own up to three plants at home, as long as they live in a jurisdiction where there is no licensed marijuana retail store. The measure did not provide for the creation of a regulated market.

This is the second setback for legalization campaigners in the state. In 2020, voters approved a constitutional amendment to legalize cannabis, but the state Supreme Court overturned the results on technical grounds, a decision championed by Republican Governor Kristi Noem.

Weed on the Ballot: Voters Could Approve Legal Marijuana in 5 More States https://remedii.net/weed-on-the-ballot-voters-could-approve-legal-marijuana-in-5-more-states/ Sat, 05 Nov 2022 13:02:16 +0000 https://remedii.net/weed-on-the-ballot-voters-could-approve-legal-marijuana-in-5-more-states/ Midterm voters in five states, including two neighboring Iowa, will determine whether to join the growing list of places where recreational marijuana use is allowed, even though all use of the drug is still illegal under federal law.

Midterm voters in five states, including two neighboring Iowa, will determine whether to join the growing list of places where recreational marijuana use is allowed, even though all use of the drug is still illegal under federal law.

Referendums to legalize recreational marijuana use are taking place Nov. 8 in Arkansas, Maryland, Missouri, South Dakota and North Dakota. If approved, those states would join 19 other states and the District of Columbia in allowing use. The current jurisdictions represent approximately 44% of the population of the United States.

Although some Republican-leaning states such as Montana and Alaska have lifted bans in recent years, most of those that have legalized recreational use still tend to lean towards the Democrats in state and state elections.

That could change this year, as four of the five states with legalization on the ballot — Arkansas, Missouri and the Dakotas — have Republicans in charge of both legislative houses and the governor’s office.

“We’ve seen an increasing number of states in the middle of the country re-examine their marijuana laws,” said Mason Tvert, spokesperson for the Denver-based cannabis law and policy firm Vicente Sederberg. “This is really just the next step in changing public attitudes toward marijuana politics.

“Generally what we find is that the more people hear about marijuana and learn more about it, the more likely they are to support its legalization and regulation.”

Adding more states that allow recreational use provides the opportunity for members of Congress in those states to support a fledgling industry and push for federal changes, Tvert said.

Critique of ballot measures

The initiatives are not without detractors, even within the political left. St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones, a Democrat, said this week she opposed Missouri’s ballot measure because it would exclude black business owners from the industry, the Missouri Independent reported.

Legalization advocates in Arkansas have also criticized that state’s ballot initiative to be too strict and not include expungement of previous offenses, the Arkansas attorney reported.

But the trend since Colorado and Washington first allowed recreational use 10 years ago has been toward further legalization.

As the industry has flourished where it is legal, it has developed an interest in expanding elsewhere.

“For-profit companies have an interest in entering these other markets,” said Beau Kilmer, co-director of the Center for Drug Policy Research at the nonprofit think tank RAND Corp.

As more states embrace legalization, the pattern could change, Kilmer added. Colorado and Washington are “definitely setting a precedent” for a for-profit model, but other approaches are possible, he said.

Locations in Canada, for example, only allow sales at state-owned stores, allowing the government to set prices and strictly control the products and potencies available.

“It will be interesting to see, especially as more conservative states start to have more serious conversations about this, whether or not we see an in-between option – the state store approach, for example,” said Kilmer said.

Legislation in certain states?

As cultural acceptance of marijuana use has grown, more states may choose to approach legalization through the “traditional legislative process” rather than ballot initiatives, Kilmer said.

This could leave room for other approaches beyond the for-profit model.

Each state that passes legalization has taken different regulatory approaches, Tvert said. But the model popularized by Colorado and Washington is generally considered successful.

Former U.S. spokesman Senator John Hickenlooper, a Democrat who was governor of Colorado when the election measure was passed, said this month that his concerns never materialized.

“I’m pretty sure now that it’s such a better societal decision, in terms of almost every metric, than the one I grew up in, and it’s going to have huge impacts,” Hickenlooper said during an interview. an event commemorating the 10th anniversary of the legalization of the state.

“That model is something that opened the door to all of these other states. And I’ve personally gone to talk to the general assembly or the governors of half a dozen states, and…literally, there’s no attack, no anxiety that we don’t have a pretty good answer.

Social justice concerns

Last month, President Joe Biden pardoned thousands of people convicted of federal offenses and instructed his administration to consider removing the drug’s Schedule I classification which places it in the most serious class of drugs of abuse.

Congressional efforts to legalize marijuana under federal law have stalled in the US Senate, despite wide popularity.

This has left nearly half the country living with a major difference between federal and state marijuana laws.

As more states allow it, the issues of fairness for those convicted of prior offenses have multiplied.

In his statement, Biden called on governors to follow his lead and pardon low-level marijuana offenders, a call that went largely unanswered.

In Missouri, Jones’ opposition stems from a provision in the measure that would allow state regulators to limit the number of licenses for the manufacture and sale of recreational marijuana and give licensed parties first choice. to supply medical marijuana – almost all of which is white.

Legalization pushes to continue

When put on the ballot, marijuana legalization measures generally pass, although often by relatively slim margins.

Tvert said there was a “good chance” each of the five states would pass their ballot measures on Nov. 8.

Regardless of the results, the momentum toward more legalization is likely to continue, Kilmer said.

“Regardless of what happens on November 8,” Kilmer said. “You’re still going to see a push for this in other states over time.”

Call for pot dispensary stifled by Chesterfield zoning council https://remedii.net/call-for-pot-dispensary-stifled-by-chesterfield-zoning-council/ Thu, 03 Nov 2022 04:12:44 +0000 https://remedii.net/call-for-pot-dispensary-stifled-by-chesterfield-zoning-council/ Green Leaf is looking to open a dispensary in a former T-Mobile store near Chesterfield Towne Center.

Green Leaf is looking to open a dispensary in a former T-Mobile store near Chesterfield Towne Center.

The area’s only legal medical marijuana supplier has once again attempted to open a store in Chesterfield.

Green Leaf Medical on Wednesday lost its appeal of the county’s earlier decision to reject planning permission for a Midlothian dispensary.

The county’s Zoning Appeals Board voted to uphold staff’s rejection of the permit for the company’s planned gLeaf-branded store at 11601 Midlothian Turnpike in a former T-Mobile store near Chesterfield Towne Center.

Chesterfield first rejection of Green Leaf’s permit application in early Augustciting marijuana’s status as a federally illegal substance as the reason it was denied.

The latest unanimous decision has prevented Green Leaf from moving forward with the dispensary at this time. After Wednesday’s vote, Green Leaf attorney Greg Habeeb of Gentry Locke did not say what the company’s next move would be, but said further legal action was an option.

Greg Habeeb

“You can appeal to the Circuit Court, you can go all the way to the Supreme Court if you want. The law allows Green Leaf to appeal,” Habeeb said.

The crux of Chesterfield’s argument was that since marijuana is an illegal substance in the eyes of the federal government, the county is unable to provide a building permit for a dispensary.

This is despite other Virginia localities allowing the handful of state-licensed medical marijuana vendors to open outlets. Green Leaf, as a supplier in the Richmond area, has already opened a store in Henrico County and Richmond, and has another under construction in Colonial Heights.

The question of how Chesterfield should follow state and federal laws regarding marijuana as well as the extent of its own zoning powers were at the center of dueling arguments at Wednesday’s appeal hearing.

“Because marijuana is illegal under federal law, the county cannot approve Green Leaf’s cannabis distribution facility,” Assistant County Attorney David “Rob” Robinson said at the meeting.

Habeeb argued that the federal government recently decided to waive enforcement of cannabis law. He noted, among other recent actions, that earlier this year Attorney General Merrick Garland said the Justice Department would not prioritize prosecutions against marijuana users.

“While cannabis remains scheduled (illegal), the federal government has taken many steps, actually positive steps,” Habeeb told the council. “They’re not just saying we’re not going to enforce it, they’re making provisions to block enforcement in states like Virginia where we have a regulatory framework.”

Recreational marijuana is legal to possess, grow, and consume in Virginia, although it is currently illegal to sell it for recreational purposes. Legislation to launch recreational retail sales failed to become law earlier this year.

In Virginia’s legal medical cannabis program, some companies like Green Leaf are able to grow marijuana and sell it to registered patients. In addition to cultivation facilities, companies are allowed to operate up to five satellite dispensaries in defined territories.

Rob Robinson

Responding to any conflict between the county’s decision and state law, Robinson said Chesterfield’s zoning ordinance follows the more restrictive law to guide a decision.

“The most restrictive regulations or those that impose higher standards will prevail.” he said. “Federal crime is certainly the most restrictive regulation.”

Local governments have wide latitude in determining their land use policies, including banning uses, Robinson said. He noted that the General Assembly has already passed restrictions on what falls outside a locality’s zoning estate, but said the legislature has yet to establish specific rules on land uses related to the cannabis.

“You’re not going to see a similar restriction on cannabis (in state law). The General Assembly knows how to tell local governments to stay away, and they haven’t in this case,” Robinson said.

Habeeb agreed that local governments had broad zoning powers, but argued that Chesterfield lacked the ability to restrict Green Leaf’s ability to use the operational permits it had been granted by the state.

“It would be an entirely reasonable use of zoning power to determine where a cannabis dispensary can go in your jurisdiction. But it’s a totally unreasonable use of zoning power to say it can’t come into your jurisdiction,” Habeeb said. “Under Virginia law, we are entitled to five dispensaries (satellites); this is the agreement we have with the state. This is what we competed for. That’s what we paid for. And now Chesterfield, as a political subdivision of the state, is saying “we’re going to take away your right to use your state license.”

Habeeb noted that there are a number of medical cannabis dispensaries in the Richmond area and elsewhere in the state that are open or slated to open. He suggested that local political leaders were ideologically opposed to the idea of ​​a marijuana dispensary in the county.

Robinson denied that politics was at play in county staff’s decision on the permit.

“I can assure you it’s not based on politics. The County Attorney’s Office enforces the law as we understand it. Politics is irrelevant in a case like this and I have no idea what politicians think about these issues,” Robinson said.

Green leaf had planned to open its Chesterfield dispensary this year.

The company has its main operations in Manchester, Virginia, where it grows, processes and sells marijuana and marijuana products to certified medical patients. at 2804 Decatur St. It opened in 2020.

Prapat urged the public to join him at the parliament complex on Wednesday when he submits the letter.

In the letter, Prapat explains that the cannabis bill was passed in principle by the House and approved by the ad hoc panel, which includes representatives from political parties, government agencies as well as the private and civil sectors.

The letter also stresses that the bill’s legislation should be expedited in the interest of clarity and creating new business opportunities, adding that it had been carefully reviewed to ensure that its enactment does not affect vulnerable groups like we feared him.

Prapat said many farmers and companies have invested heavily in growing and processing marijuana into products. If the bill is not enacted quickly, it could lead to losses of up to 50 billion baht, he said.

Blocking the cannabis law for political reasons will Ong-art, meanwhile, said companies cannot move forward without a direct cannabis control law, which he added would build trust in the company.

He also pointed out that banks do not lend to marijuana-related businesses because their future is uncertain without the law.

“As a businessman, I want the direction to be clear, so we know what we can and cannot do,” he said.

He pointed out that if marijuana were put on the banned narcotics list again, many companies would go bankrupt. He also questioned why the politicians did not speak up when the Panel Control Bill announced its decisions.

“It’s not right and it’s disgusting to play politics about the future of the people and the country,” he said.

He added that the price of dried ganja had dropped from 30,000 baht per kilo to around 1,000 baht due to uncertainties over the bill.

While the man used a collection of credit cards under different names, all of the orders contained the same billing and shipping information.

In total, the fraudulent purchases resulted in chargebacks or chargebacks for NSLC totaling $6,8282.14. Police were able to locate the man at the address listed on the purchases.

The man is believed to be well known to police for his past criminal activities, including counterfeiting and possession of property obtained by crime.

The 27-year-old is currently serving a suspended sentence following a charge of stealing over $5,000. He is due back in court next month on the new charges, which include possession of property obtained by crime and fraudulent use of another person’s credit card.

SaltFil reports that investigators are looking for information about the man’s past employment to determine if the fraudster credit card data was obtained from his workplaces.

The student said she dropped her wallet at a Toyko Smoke dispensary in Toronto and woke up the next day to fraud detection alerts from her banks. When she returned to the store, she viewed footage of the alleged thief, who allegedly used the stolen cards to buy a hoodie and a THC vape pen.

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada recommends using cash to buy cannabis if you’re worried about using credit cards. Additionally, the Commissioner recommends asking cannabis retailers if they store your personal information on servers outside of Canada.

The Ontario Securities Commission is asking the Capital Markets Court to approve a settlement with an Ontario cannabis company and one of its former executives who the regulator says failed to file accurate financial statements.

In a court filing on Thursday, the OSC says Toronto-based Cronos Group Inc. incorrectly recognized $7.6 million in revenue in its first, second and third quarter financial statements filed in 2019.

The regulator also accuses the company of overstating “substantially all” of its US goodwill and a “significant” portion of its US intangible assets by approximately US$234.9 million in its second-quarter 2021 interim financial statements. .

The CSO says some of the revenue errors were caused by dried flower transactions counted as revenue “lacking commercial substance” and placed some of the blame on former chief financial officer William Hilson, who it says has not taken appropriate action to resolve these issues. problems.

The story continues under the ad

Cronos corrected the errors but pointed to “significant weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting”. The OSC says the errors violate Ontario securities law and are contrary to the public interest.

The OSC and Cronos declined to discuss the matter further, and Hilson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
