Lady Justice

Attorney General Merrick Garland said that Department of Justice resources are not put to the best use prosecuting marijuana-related offenses whether or not states have cannabis legalization laws on the books.

He says the department’s resources are better spent on violent crimes and actions that harm society more than cannabis.

Squier’s Specialty Edibles: Real fruit, real flower, no funny business

driinks

Squier’s Speciality Edibles on their all-natural and holistic approach to all things fruity, good, and canna-curious.

Squier’s Specialty edibles is all about the real and the authentic. Take a peek into their process.

The world of edibles has undergone colossal growth since the days when consumers were buying their brownies from their dealer down the street with complete disregard as to the quality and quantity of cannabis they put in them.

This often raised the question of, “Was this store-bought brownie mix infused with some poorly ‘homemade’ cannabutter so potent it was about to blast you into another dimension, or so low-grade that you would need a whole tray just to feel the effects?”

The leaked opinion overturning Roe, combined with a largely unknown workers’ compensation case pending before the Supreme Court, reveal the Biden administration’s position on cannabis: The Biden administration doesn’t care about cannabis issues. Or is it that the Biden administration cares so much about cannabis issues to leave them in the hands of the current judiciary? Or something in the middle?

Cannabis companies lacking bankruptcy protections can explore state options

newspaper

As the trend to legalize the medical and recreational use of marijuana continues to blaze through the states, federal law, and bankruptcy courts by extension, have not yet followed suit. Bankruptcy courts have historically prevented cannabis - and even cannabis-ancillary companies - from filing for protection under the United States Bankruptcy Code because marijuana remains illegal under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) at the federal level. Consequently, financially distressed companies in states where marijuana is legal still have limited restructuring options and must rely on state law options.
