Cuomo Screws NY’s Medical Marijuana Industry

Don’t Let the Screen Door Hit You on the Way Out… Governor Cuomo unveiled his proposed budget (page 200 of this link) which includes a recreational marijuana law called the Cannabis Regulation and Taxation Act. For those who are invested in the big marijuana companies it is disappointing but small businesses will be happy (except New York is the least friendly state to business in the nation). For the companies who have invested in New York for the Governor’s Medical Marijuana plan, he is thanking them with taking away their ability to expand into recreational marijuana and allowing medical marijuana patients to grow their own – a double whammy likely to make NY a disaster for them.  The three tier distribution model according to the governor’s speech will make sure the licenses don’t just go to the dreaded rich people.  He is dreaming of Washington and Sandra Lee will be the next Dolly Madison.  Call Your Legislators – Tell Them You Want Real Jobs Cue the lobbyists and legislators to start negotiating this turkey.  Contact your state legislators now – there is still time to correct this turkey.  There are lots of bombs in the Governor’s proposed budget…

Is there a job in the cannabis industry for you?

Is there a job in the cannabis industry for you? Probably! It is my honor have Johnny Green from Green Flower guest blogging here.  I know you will get a lot out of this informative post. Is there a job in the cannabis industry for you? Probably! By Johnny Green on Sep 10, 2018 Working in the cannabis industry is one of the most exciting things a person can do. No other industry is as popular and desirable as the cannabis industry is right now from an employment perspective. For many decades people could not pursue a career in the legal cannabis industry because a legal cannabis industry did not exist. Now, with the spread of cannabis reform and the rise of the cannabis industry, opportunities for meaningful careers in the cannabis space are becoming more common. That’s right. Jobs. Lots of jobs. Cannabis industry workforce estimates are mind blowing Marijuana Business Daily published statistics in 2017 that estimated how many jobs the legal cannabis industry has created. The numbers are nothing short of astounding. According to MJBiz’s research, the cannabis industry employs between 165,000 and 230,000 people either full-time or part-time. To put that into perspective, we can compare it… 

Marijuana News – New Jersey Marijuana License Applications

Marijuana News – New Jersey Marijuana License Applications The Governor of New Jersey announced that New Jersey has received 146 marijuana license applications for medical marijuana dispensaries.  There were 50 applicants for the northern region, 45 in the central region and 51 in the southern region.                 Governor Murphy also tweeted, “Medical marijuana is used to treat chronic and debilitating pain, epilepsy, glaucoma, PTSD, ALS, side effects of cancer treatment and HIV/AIDS, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and other painful illnesses. NJ will not deny people compassionate care.” Unfortunately, the regulatory burden on these applicants is such that you have to be able to make a huge investment to qualify for a license,  so it is not likely there will be many small businesses awarded these licenses.  It looks like there will be many hundreds of jobs however.  I hope NY gets it right but at the same time, I am a realist and I know that deep pockets always win in NY because our politicians have built a campaign contribution mill that runs like a top. If you aspire to work at one of these dispensaries, grow sites or manufacturing facilities, start…

Cannabis Beer and Other Cannabis News             

Cannabis Beer Lagunitas Brewing Co. in Petaluma, California has released a new product – a cannabis beer inspired sparkling water, laced with THC.  It comes in two strengths. It is called Hi-Fi Hops Sparkling Water.  The highly (pun intended) anticipated product comes out on July 30, 2018.  In 2017 Lagunitas released SuperCritical Ale, a cannabis beer with marijuana aromatics, but no THC. Cannabis beer and other cannabis beverages are clearly the wave of the future, especially as smoking, in general, is not as popular as it used to be and it impact those in your vicinity unlike a beverage. Deloitte Consulting recently released a Cannabis Report that estimated that 3/4 of Canada’s projected $21 billion marijuana industry in Canada will be beverage-based. This Fall, another brewer is releasing a THC laced cannabis beer.  This time, real cannabis beer but with the alcohol removed after the fact, to make it legal. It is very much illegal to sell products with both alcohol and THC right now so real cannabis beer isn’t available yet.  We wouldn’t want to run afoul of the government, would we? Speaking of The Government Oklahoma – Speaking of government laws and regulation…  The cannabis industry is so…
