California: Nestdrop Medical Marijuana Delivery Service Launches GoFundMe Campaign

To help pay for its upcoming legal battle with the City of Los Angeles, medical marijuana delivery service Nestdrop has launched a GoFundMe campaign to seek donations from medicinal cannabis patients, fellow tech companies, dispensaries and supporters across the country.

Philly420: From Deleware to Detroit, Plans Differ for Medical Marijuana

Advocates for medical marijuana are quick to point out that 23 states have passed some sort of therapeutic cannabis law. All of them are different. They range from the broadly worded (California) to severely restrictive (New Jersey). The truth is that only a handful of these states actually offer programs that serve a majority of patients. 

Robust programs are running in Maine, Oregon, Washington, Colorado and California. These states offer the widest array of access from home cultivation, collective gardens and professional dispensaries. The rest of the country struggles to compete for a similar level of compassion.

Why you can't call marijuana 'organic'

Anne Glazer, a partner at the Stoel Rives law firm, cautions marijuana sellers to skip calling their products "organic".

 

Not long after Oregon voted to legalize recreational marijuana use in November, attorney Anne Glazer began noticing producers touting their wares as “organic”.

Glazer, who specializes in helping food and beverage clients of the Stoel Rives law firm stay compliant with food and drug labeling laws, was troubled.

“It’s being used a lot,” she said, citing both packaging and advertising.

But it’s a no-go for the industry as it works to operate legally within Oregon.

Marijuana company backs down in MGM trademark suit

After being sued by MGM, a marijuana company has agreed to stop calling itself “M’Life,” a name almost identical to that of MGM’s member rewards program.

MGM Resorts International filed a federal lawsuit in Las Vegas in September, accusing M’Life Wellness and sister companies of diluting MGM’s “M Life” trademark and “cybersquatting” on the website mlifewellness.com.

The two companies reached a settlement in principle months ago that was finalized last week, according to a notice filed with the court Friday.

Dan Lutz, CEO of the former M’Life, said he was surprised by the lawsuit and had no intention of infringing on MGM’s trademark.

“We weren’t even aware of the loyalty card that they had,” Lutz said, adding with a laugh, “I mean, I’m not a gambler, so…”

City of Barrie will probe what can and can't be done

The city will look into the legality of licensing any medical marijuana production facility in Barrie.

While giving initial approval Monday to expand permitted uses within the industrial section of the city's comprehensive zoning bylaw, there were questions about a business licence for one particular use.

"I have enough discomfort about this," said Mayor Jeff Lehman of medical marijuana production, noting the Ontario Municipal Act does have restrictions about what local governments can and cannot licence.

"Maybe you can't make it illegal, but you can require conditions," he said. "Maybe we can get some detail on what is and what is not permitted."
