    by Matt Lamers on October 19, 2017 at 9:53 pm

    A New Brunswick government-owned corporation has issued a call for proposals for 15 retail spaces across the province to sell adult-use cannabis. A spokesperson for the Finance Ministry declined to confirm to Marijuana Business Daily whether the tender is open to the private sector. NB Liquor, the government corporation that oversees the province’s liquor industry, issued the tender calling for 15 different 3,000-square-foot spaces to sell marijuana, noting they should not be attached to the agency’s liquor stores, CBC News reported. In September, the province announced that a Crown corporation would oversee the distribution of recreational marijuana, but ...

    by Bart Schaneman on October 19, 2017 at 8:49 pm

    Michigan’s proposed medical marijuana regulations could very well force some existing companies out of business if they lack the financial cushion needed to secure a new license. The proposed rules would require companies to have up to $500,000 to get a business permit. According to MLive.com, the state’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs recommended marijuana businesses have the following amounts of start-up capital to receive a license: Grower class A (500 plants) – $150,000 Grower class B (1,000 plants) – $300,000 Grower class C (1,500 plants) – $500,000 Processor – $300,000 Provisioning center – $300,000 Secure transporter – $200,000 Safety compliance facility – $200,000 ...

    A Canadian marijuana company has inked a strategic alliance with a national chain of convenience stores with the aim of selling adult-use cannabis at the operator’s 350 locations across Canada.

    The Wisconsin state Senate’s agriculture committee overwhelmingly approved a bill that would allow farmers to grow hemp. The panel voted unanimously Wednesday to approve the proposal. The vote clears the way for a full floor vote in the Senate. A separate hemp measure is pending in the House. The Senate bill would set up state licenses for farmers wanting to grow industrial hemp.

  • Two new marijuana markets – AR and MA – encounter obstacles
    by Bart Schaneman on October 19, 2017 at 8:04 pm

    Arkansas’ medical marijuana program and Massachusetts’ adult-use industry have encountered stumbling blocks that could slow their full-fledged launches. According to Talk Business and Politics, the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission said it will need to push back the rollout of the program because of the time it will take to conduct FBI background checks for the 320 MMJ business applications it received. The Arkansas commission is working on processing applications for five cultivation licenses and 32 dispensaries, the bulk of which it received on or near the Sept. 18 deadline. No licenses will be approved until well after ...

  • Marijuana banking confusion snags WA hemp clothing company
    by Kristen Nichols on October 19, 2017 at 4:48 pm

    A Washington state clothing company has lost its bank account – even though it doesn’t work with marijuana – because of the use of hemp in its products. Owners of the natural-clothing company Rawganique in Blaine say they were shocked when Umpqua Bank – which is headquartered in Portland, Oregon – informed them it would no longer work with the company because it’s in a “marijuana-related industry.” According to The Northern Light newspaper, Rawganique does not grow hemp nor manufacture hemp products. Instead, Rawganique makes hemp products using imported hemp, including clothing, hempseed oil, hempseed butter, hemp protein powder and rope. ...

  • Another trademark marijuana lawsuit – this involving a hot sauce

    (Correction: An earlier version of this report mistakenly called the lawsuit a copyright case, instead of a trademark case.) The maker of Tapatio hot sauce is the latest to sue a marijuana company for alleged trademark infringement. Tapatio Foods LLC has filed two separate complaints in the U.S. District Court in the Central District of California. The Oct. 13 complaints allege trademark infringement and unfair competition for the illegal use of Tapatio’s brand and trademark to sell “Trapatio,” a THC-infused sauce. Tapatio says its Mexican cowboy logo belongs to them, and that Trapatio is marketing itself with  a “confusingly similar” ...

  • California wildfires a bump in the road for state’s marijuana industry, insiders say
    by John Schroyer on October 19, 2017 at 10:30 am

    By John Schroyer The wildfires ravaging Northern California over the past week have burned tens of thousands of acres of land, torching more than 30 marijuana farms and adding a new wrinkle to the January rollout of the state’s regulated cannabis industry. But many industry insiders believe that the more than 20 blazes – which have destroyed parts of Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino counties – won’t lead to a serious inventory shortage of product given the sheer immensity of marijuana production in California. “It’s a drop in the bucket compared to what the state is producing,” said ...

  • New stock guidelines good news for Canada’s marijuana companies, industry executives say
    by Matt Lamers on October 19, 2017 at 10:20 am

    Matt Lamers A fog of uncertainty hanging over Canada’s cannabis sector was lifted this week after a securities regulator and the operator of the country’s largest stock exchange clarified the listing rules for marijuana companies doing business in the United States. Marijuana industry executives said the new guidelines remove much of the uncertainty over whether publicly traded cannabis companies would lose their listings because of U.S. business interests. The clarity offered by the guidelines also is expected to give these cannabis companies better access to capital. “It was paramount,” Marc Lustig, CEO of Ottawa-based CannaRoyalty – which invests ...
