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 – “Tannenbaum has spent more than two years getting through the weeds of a county background check process and nearly four years total in the county permitting process to become the county’s first cannabis cultivation farm approved to harvest and sell its crop.
Having spent millions of dollars to set up the cannabis farm and maneuver through the politics of local cannabis cultivation following county voters’ 2018 approval of ballot measures to create a commercial cannabis program, Tannenbaum’s business is ripe for harvest this year.”
#californiacannabis – “The operation was licensed and permitted, but it was nor reporting any cultivation activity to state and county regulators, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
During an inspection of the property, law enforcement officials learned the operation was cultivating, harvesting and processing cannabis, but the business was not reporting any of the cannabis activities in the California Cannabis Track and Trace system, which is required by law.”
#psychedelics – “Psilocybin and MDMA will be available for therapeutic use in Australia beginning on Saturday after regulators approved the psychedelic drugs to treat certain mental health conditions earlier this year.
In February, Australia’s medical regulator, the Therapeutic Goods Administration, authorized psychiatrists to use MDMA, also known as the popular party drug ecstasy, as a treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). At the same time, the agency approved psilocybin, the primary psychoactive compound found in magic mushrooms, as a therapy for treatment-resistant depression. Both drugs were authorized for use beginning on July 1.”
#californiacannabis – “The exemption would take effect retroactively to January 2023 and last until July 2025. Tax payments businesses have made already this year would count as credits against future city taxes or fees. The city administration and Cannabis Commission, meanwhile, will work on a more permanent ordinance for sales taxes on cannabis businesses “with an eye to the ability for the cannabis industry to become a sustainable economic driver,” according to Bartlett’s submission.
Legally, the city will have to adopt an ordinance for the temporary relief itself, which means two readings before the members can vote, Arreguín said Tuesday. Originally an action item for Tuesday’s council meeting, the members agreed to move it to their consent agenda, a bloc of measures they adopt en masse.”
