The quest to make California's weed the Champagne of Cannabis

What's in a name? For champagne, it’s the expectation of excellence and at the very least, bubbles. It’s even protected by law: To call a liquid champagne, you have to grow it in a certain part of France under certain rules of planting, pressing and even packaging. All the fuss means champagne makers can charge a premium for their product.

California’s 2nd ‘Cannabis Cup’ postponed until 2019

Just five months ago, High Times organizers pulled off the first California marijuana festival where recreational marijuana was legally purchased on-site. And it almost didn't happen.

Organizers needed a permit from the city and didn't realize it until a few weeks leading up to the event. They got the permit just a few days before.

"It was the first one in the state. I think like many thing related to cannabis, it's been a learning experience on all sides, both on local and those being regulated," said Joe Devlin, Sacramento's Chief of Cannabis Policy & Enforcement. Devlin called the first event “largely uneventful.”

Special delivery: Cannabis on demand in California

First came pizza and Chinese food. Then came organic groceries and gourmet restaurant meals. Now cannabis is the latest indulgence you can order and receive quickly, conveniently and discreetly — and legally, to boot.

New permanent regulations adopted by the Bureau of Cannabis Control in July allow deliveries to consumers anywhere in California. Even if individual cities and counties ban cannabis business activity within their borders, cannabis flowers, edibles, concentrates, tinctures, topicals and more may be legally delivered by services based outside those areas. The regulations are still open to legal challenge by cities and law enforcement but remain in place.

California Gov. rejects bill allowing medical cannabis at school

The bill would have allowed parents to bring their children medical cannabis at school. On Friday (Sep. 28), California Governor Jerry Brown blocked the passage of a bill that would have allowed parents to bring their children medical cannabis at school. 

The aim of this legislation, called Jojo’s Act, was to give children with severe health conditions, like rare forms of epilepsy, better access to their medication. The measure was named after a high school student in San Francisco who is afflicted with the rare seizure disorder, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. It was proposed by State Senator Jerry Hill of Senate District 13.

Governor of California vetoes “compassionate access” medical marijuana bill

Advocates for safe and affordable medical cannabis access are condemning Gov. Brown’s veto and calling on lawmakers for more solutions.

A California Senate bill aimed at restoring California dispensaries’ ability to give away cannabis for free was vetoed by Gov. Jerry Brown last Friday. Gov. Brown cited conflicts between the “Compassionate Access” medical marijuana bill and Proposition 64, the state’s adult-use legislation.

But supporters of SB 829, including the group Americans for Safe Access (ASA), say that was the point of the bill in the first place: to eliminate a restriction within Prop. 64 that prevented compassionate care donations to medical cannabis patients in need.
