Jamaica: Roadmap for developing ganja industry needed

KINGSTON, Jamaica— Communications consultant Delano Seiveright says there is a need for a clear roadmap for the overarching development of the local ganja/cannabis industry.

“We need now a clear roadmap for its overarching development, further reforms, immediate enactment of a simple, efficient and transparent regulatory structure that favours traditional farmers, investors, new businesses, and increasing tax revenue, and the clearing away of bureaucratic obstacles and anti-ganja impulses by hostile forces,” says Seiveright.

Speaking at the the Re-Imagine Jamaica: Unlimited Possibilities A Brand Jamaica symposium at the University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona on Friday, he argued that Jamaica is ripe for an “amazing, mind-boggling economic windfall” from ganja.

New Software Could Help Marijuana Businesses Get Access to Banks

Two companies are teaming up to make it easier for pot businesses to track their products and comply with regulations, which may finally persuade banks to work with entrepreneurs in the industry.

The cannabis industry still has a banking problem. Although a growing number of states have legalized medical and/or recreational marijuana, it is still illegal under federal law. This makes most banks apprehensive about serving pot businesses.

Ad for marijuana product pulled from US TV over legal concerns

America’s first ever ad for a marijuana product has been pulled because of concerns about its legality.

The 15-second commercial for Neos, a company which makes “vape pens” infused with cannabis oil had planned to run the ad on the Denver based TV channel KMGH, in Colorado.

The state changed its laws in 2013, allowing adults aged 21 and over to grow and legally possess small amounts of Cannabis and providing licenses for cultivation, manufacturing and testing facilities as well as shops to sell it in.

Marijuana ads are legal in the state but they can only run if 70 per cent of the audience is over 21, so the 15-second spot was planned to go out before late night talk show “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

Breaking Bud: Marijuana And Product Recalls

By Hilary Bricken, Canna Law Group

Earlier this year, a Colorado cannabis company instituted a successful statewide recall of one of its marijuana-infused products and another Colorado cannabis company had a similar recall last summer. Whether you’re a marijuana producer, manufacturer, or a retailer, now is the time to establish a reliable and effective recall procedure.

My firm has blogged before about products liability and the cannabis industry, and we all know it’s just a matter of time before a plaintiff successfully sues a marijuana company for injuries caused by a defective marijuana product.

APD seizes Anchorage pot delivery service's cars, but owner vows to drive on

In the past two months, police have seized two cars from an Anchorage marijuana delivery service. The owners said they’ve been left in the dark about when -- or even if -- their property will be returned.

Experts say current search and seizure laws allow law enforcement to take and hold the property, though they contend the Alaska Legislature needs to rethink the laws in terms of a ballot initiative that legalized recreational marijuana in Alaska.

Michael Crites, who owns Absolutely Chronic Delivery Company along with his wife, said two Anchorage Police Department stings in recent months resulted in the loss of two cars tied to the business.
