Posted by Armada Admin | Oct 24, 2022 | 0 Comments

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:

#employmentlaw - "On October 19, 2022, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued a press release announcing the release of its updated “Know Your Rights” poster. The EEOC enforces a number of employment laws that require employers to post a notice describing the Federal laws prohibiting job discrimination.

Particular updates to reflect the current interpretation and enforcement of the federal discrimination laws: includes a specific reference that harassment is a prohibited form of discrimination; clarifies that sex discrimination includes discrimination based on pregnancy and related conditions, sexual orientation, and gender identity; provides information about equal pay discrimination for federal employers; and contains a new QR code for individuals that links directly to instructions on how to file a charge of workplace discrimination with the EEOC."

#cannabisindustry - "A proposed class of buyers is suing the makers of Jeeter brand prerolled cannabis cigarettes, saying the company grossly overstates the amount of THC in its products and overcharges consumers for them.

In a complaint filed Thursday in Los Angeles County Court, Jasper Centeno and Blake Wilson said Dreamfields Brands Inc. and its subsidiary Med for America Inc. are in violation of California's cannabis labeling regulations, which require that the actual level of THC in cannabis products be within 10% of what's stated on the box.

According to the complaint, this means that if a cannabis product advertises that it contains 30% THC, the actual amount must be between 27% and 33%, and Jeeter products are specifically advertised as having high levels of THC, with some products advertising between 35% and 46%."
