Jamaica is making it easier for its small business owners and farmers to enter the cannabis industry.

The Cannabis Licensing Authority of Jamaica (CLA) announced in late June that its special permit policy is in an advance stage of completion and consultations with interested parties have begun.

The goal of the CLA is to lower industry barriers by granting a “low-cost” two-year cultivation permit to small farmers in order to help them transition to licensed growers.

For the special permit, the CLA is proposing that all fees will be fifty percent (50%) less than the current fee for a cultivator’s (Tier 1) licence.

As COVID-19 cases continue to rise, researchers have started to look for solutions in an unlikely place – the cannabis plant. Cannabis’ active compounds have a number of properties that make it appealing as a potential adjunct treatment for infections from the novel coronavirus, and recently scientists have begun looking at its potential for reducing susceptibility to the disease, and even discussed whether it could be used as an antiviral medication.

This month, researchers from the University of Nebraska and the Texas Biomedical Research Institute are recommending more research into how cannabis-derived CBD might help treat dangerous lung inflammation from the novel coronavirus. The authors detailed the evidence for how cannabis’ anti-inflammatory powers may help in a peer reviewed article in this month’s issue of Brain, Behavior, and Immunity.

Cannabis laws give landlords a unique amount of control and bargaining power over tenants. This usually translates to above-market rent and one-sided lease agreements. Fighting with landlords is no fun, especially for cannabis tenants who cannot simply relocate to a new property and must deal with their lessor for the life of a license. In this post, I’ll examine some important concepts for cannabis tenants.

1. Getting Along with the Landlord

This isn’t really even a legal concept, but it’s a critical one. Before getting tied up into a multi-year contract that a tenant essentially can’t back out of if it wants to remain in business, it’s a good idea to know who a tenant is dealing with. Chances are, the tenant will be required to go to the landlord for approval frequently during the life of the lease. It’s a good idea to understand who the landlord is before signing. If it’s a challenge to negotiate basic lease provisions at the outset, it’ll probably be a challenge to get those new premises modifications approved–or to do anything else.

2. Landlord Control

It’s common for leases to prohibit assignment or subletting without the landlord’s consent. Many leases go a

Beyond the 2.3 million cases of COVID-19 in the U.S and the more than 120,000 coronavirus deaths, as of mid-June, there exists an urgent medical situation. The treatment of medical personnel is an additional pandemic element, complicated by the rapid spread of the virus in the population.

Burnout has hit many professionals, but most of all, the medical communities from doctors and nurses to emergency medical technicians. Despite all of the pre-planning, there was little contingency planning for the sudden influx of new patients.

Understanding burnout
Patients are being treated during current pressing conditions by professionals who are having to work with masks and protective gear. Both patients and medical personnel have limited access to their families. And many medical professionals have become sick, too. That makes for a perfect storm for clinical burnout.

Discovered by scientists in the early 1990s, the endocannabinoid system is responsible for regulating many basic functions throughout the body. The system can be activated by cannabinoids that are naturally created by the body — and those found in the cannabis plant, which, as you might have guessed, is where it got its name.

Among the functions regulated by the endocannabinoid system (ECS) are memory, appetite, temperature, the immune system, sleep, pain, and the female reproductive system. By regulating these functions, the ECS is believed to help maintain balance, or homeostasis, in the body.

The endocannabinoid system: What it is and how it works

The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (2018 Farm Bill) legalized hemp by removing the crop and its derivatives from the definition of marijuana under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) and by providing a detailed framework for the cultivation of hemp. The 2018 Farm Bill gives the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulatory authority over hemp cultivation at the federal level. In turn, states have the option to maintain primary regulatory authority over the crop cultivated within their borders by submitting a plan to the USDA.

This federal and state interplay has resulted in many legislative and regulatory changes at the state level. Indeed, most states have introduced (and adopted) bills that would authorize the commercial production of hemp within their borders. A smaller but growing number of states also regulate the sale of products derived from hemp. Our attorneys track these developments in real-time on behalf of multiple clients, and we provide a 50-state matrix showing how states regulate hemp and hemp products.

Over the last year, we have written about hemp and hemp-derived cannabidiol (Hemp CBD) policies in all 50 states, Guam, Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands, and on Tribal land. Links to each of these posts are available below. Obviously, nothing

Over four years ago, Aaron Evans found out he had a brain tumor, something called AA3 (Anaplastic Astrocytoma). It has been a long journey, but Aaron and his family are now here: his high school graduation.

Eighteen-year-old Aaron recently got his diploma from Kings Mountain High School.

This, after years of surgeries, therapy, and CBD oil, Aaron was one of the first kids in the Carolinas to try CBD, even before it was widely available.

His mother, Jennifer, fought tooth and nail to get her son the treatments, even quietly heading out to Colorado to learn more.

As many businesses struggle through the COVID-19 pandemic, one business owner in Spenard said she is doing better than ever. MoMo’s Bakery makes marijuana edibles that are sold to Alaska cannabis businesses. Owner Maureen Eberhardt said that in recent months, their sales have nearly doubled.

“It’s amazing because here it’s not even the tourist season and we are making record. Every week has been a record,” she said.

Eberhardt said she is grateful that cannabis businesses were deemed “essential” during the pandemic and did not have to shut down. She attributed high sales in part to people who are anxious and looking for a way to relax.
