More cities opt out of cannabis retail sales in Ontario

Oakville and Brantford have added themselves to the list of Ontario municipalities to opt out of hosting cannabis stores which is likely to add to the difficulty in rolling out a successful recreational market in the province.

Ontario reportedly has had 52 municipalities aside from Oakville and Brantford who have informed the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario as of Wednesday of this week that they will not be allowing retail pot shops in their city for at least the time being.

Many of the municipalities have held town hall meeting where residents can voice their opinion and in many cases, they just don’t feel they’re ready and aren’t confident in the proposed system.

Senators ask FDA to update rules on certain cannabis products

Oregon’s two senators on Tuesday urged the head of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to update federal regulations to permit interstate commerce of food products containing a key non-psychoactive ingredient of cannabis.

The appeal by Sens. Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley came after Congress legalized the production and sale of industrial hemp and hemp derivatives, including cannabidiols, known as CBD. Wyden and Merkley had been behind a hemp provision that Congress passed and was included in the 2018 Farm Bill.

Canopy Growth Corp’s (TSX:WEED) big move into the U.S.: Why investors shouldn’t get too excited

Earlier this week, Canopy Growth Corp  (TSX:WEED)(NYSE:CGC) was given a license to produce hemp in New York State. While it’s a big milestone for a TSX-listed cannabis stock, investors need to temper their expectations.

Leading Canadian cannabis and hemp producer Canopy Growth Corp’s (TSX:WEED)(NYSE:CGC) stock rallied on Monday after the company announced that it’s finally entering the United States market thanks to a recently signed Farm Bill of 2018 that federally legalized the farming of hemp, a cannabis family plant, as a crop.

The company will make a significant US$100-150 million investment in establishing large scale hemp production facilities (a Hemp Industrial Park) in the state of New York within the next 100 days, and it appears that this will be a green field venture.
