Today, Armada Law Corp presents The Scuttlebutt, a daily summery of news articles that people within the cannabis, hemp and plant medicine industries are chatting about along with links to the full articles.
In today’s news:
#californiacannabis – “Roots Properties, a California
industrial agriculture firm and investor, has taken legal action against Island View Ranch LLC and Island Breeze Farms LLC.
The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, alleges that the defendants sabotaged their cannabis grow operation and undermined a six-figure loan agreement.
The agreement, reported Green Market Report, stipulated that 90% of the profits generated by the Bay X cannabis greenhouse operation would be used to repay the loan.”
#cannabislaw – “As the cannabis economy tanks (with the exception of states that just came online for medical and/or adult-use), cannabis litigation
is picking up. Most of this litigation revolves around partnership disputes, unpaid bills, breached contracts, and solvency. All cannabis entrepreneurs and businesses should be mindful of cannabis litigation trends, especially in these lean times.”
#cannabislaw – “U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria found in a Thursday order following a two-day bench trial that Andrew Barnett and Nazanin Namazi, who bought a 12-acre parcel with a house that had been converted from a barn in Ferndale, have not proven that the brokers even knew about the mold.
The decision in favor of brokers Bernard Garrigan and Kyla Nored noted the experience of Christine Mahoney, who lived at the property for a few months in 2016. As told in the judge’s order, Mahoney and her husband moved upstairs to get away from the worst of the mold.”

#psychedelics – “Balancing caution with optimism, the global healthcare community watches as Australia pioneers a transformative shift in how society views psychedelic drugs. MDMA, psilocybin and ketamine are three such drugs that may one day become a standard part of the mental healthcare toolkit.”
#cannabislaw – “Wrigley, the maker of multi-colored fruit-flavored Skittles candies, has settled a lawsuit accusing a seller of cannabis-related merchandise of trademark infringement for marketing products under the “ZKITTLEZ” name.
Under a proposed permanent injunction filed on Monday in Chicago federal court, Terphogz LLC agreed not to use Skittles, Zkittlez or similar terms for cannabis-related sales.
Terphogz would stop using slogans such as “Taste the Z Train” and “Taste the Strain Bro,” which Wrigley found too similar to Skittles’ longtime slogan “Taste the Rainbow.””
