In the days of the Armada, a fleet of warships, the scuttlebutt was the rumor or gossip that would spread throughout the ship. 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 – “A Big Bear City cannabis church that was shut down by San Bernardino County — and twice rebuffed in the courts in a bid to reopen — is now taking its fight to the state Supreme Court.
Jah Healing Kemetic Temple of the Divine Church, which considers cannibas a sacrament and denies the church functions as an illegal dispensary, lost its most recent challenge when the Fourth District Court of Appeals in Riverside upheld San Bernardino Superior Court Judge David Cohn’s June 2020 decision ordering a permanent injunction against the church.
Attorney Matthew Pappas, who represents the church and its owner, April Elizabeth Mancini, has petitioned the state Supreme Court to review the appellate ruling. And he vowed to pursue the case all the way to the nation’s high court, if necessary.”
#psychedelic – “Colorado could become the second state after Oregon to allow the use of certain psychedelic substances that are illegal under federal law.
But while Oregon voters in 2020 approved the supervised use of psychedelic mushrooms, the citizen initiative on the Colorado ballot in November goes further. Proposition 122 would allow the personal use of psilocybin mushrooms and certain plant-based psychedelic substances by adults 21 and older but would ban sales except in licensed “healing centers,” where people could ingest them under the supervision of trained facilitators.”
#cannabisindustry – ““We’re ready to do what Iowans are asking us to do,” House Minority Leader Jennifer Konfrst, D-Windsor Heights, said during a September a news conference at the Iowa Capitol, according to the news outlet. “It won’t be easy. This is an ambitious and bold proposal that will not happen overnight, but just because it won’t happen overnight doesn’t mean it shouldn’t happen.””
#californiacannabis – “Encinitas will pick its four winning applicants for cannabis retail business licenses during a televised lottery on Oct. 21, the city manager reported last week to the City Council.
The lottery’s set for 1 p.m. at City Hall, and applicants who are eligible to participate will be notified about the event, City Manager Pamela Antil said….
Applicants who wanted one of the four retail business licenses had to submit their proposals to the city by Feb. 18. The city received 200 applications and began ranking them. Preference was given to applicants who had at least 12 months’ experience as a cannabis business owner, 36 months as a pharmaceutical business owner and 18 months as an Encinitas business owner. Applicants that met all criteria qualified for the top tier in the lottery process, the city’s web site indicates.”
