Since Washington, D.C., legalized medical marijuana in 2010, patients have had to get a doctor’s recommendation and a government-issued card in order to legally purchase cannabis.

D.C. leaders have passed emergency legislation that allows adults to buy medical marijuana without first seeing a doctor.

The D.C. Council approved the measure on Tuesday, and residents could have the ability to “self-certify” themselves for medical cannabis as soon as next week.

JEFFERSON PARK — Three Far Northwest Side businesses were tagged with swastikas Tuesday night, owners said.

Three neighboring businesses, all owned and operated by people of color, were hit with swastikas on their back doors, a front sign and a van belonging to one of the businesses.

Black swastikas were painted on Supreme Smoke Shop, 4766 N. Milwaukee Ave., Cannabist, a dispensary at 4758 N. Milwaukee Ave. and Indigenous government office Ho-Chunk Nation at 4738 N. Milwaukee Ave.

The tagging happened late Tuesday, said Arcan Abuhashish, owner of Supreme Smoke Shop.

Abuhashish, who is Arab, said the incident feels targeted toward non-white businesses along the block. He believes he knows who the offender is and has seen him before in the area, he said.

“The dispensary has all types of nationalities that work there and Ho-Chunk is Native … it definitely feels targeted,” Abuhashish said. “The point is he knows what he’s doing.”

LizMarie Palomo, Midwest general manager for Cannabist, agreed that the incident feels targeted and looks racially motivated.

“We have a lot of minorities who work here,” Palomo said, who is Latina. “It feels targeted but who knows.”

Both business owners said nothing like this has happened before but that it’s

MEDFORD, MA — Medford Mayor Breanna Lungo-Koehn signed a Host Community Agreement with its second recreational marijuana dispensary on Monday.

The city signed the five-year agreement with Sanctuary Medicinals, which plans to open a retail marijuana dispensary on Riverside Avenue.

Sanctuary was the fourth ranked applicant based on scoring criteria put in place by the City’s Cannabis Advisory Committee (CAC). Nine applicants were considered, interviewed by the CAC, and ranked, with final rankings submitted to the Mayor in Fall 2021.

Sanctuary Medicinals now follows Theory Wellness as the second dispensary to enter into a Host Community Agreement with Medford. They will need to obtain Special Permit approval from the Zoning Board of Appeals before they can begin operation. They are also subject to approval from the state’s Cannabis Control Commission.

As with the agreement with Theory Wellness, the leadership at Sanctuary Medicinals made it a priority to hire Medford residents whenever possible and has agreed to Mayor Lungo-Koehn’s requirement that at least 50 percent of its employees will be women, at least 35 percent of employees will be of diverse backgrounds, and at least 5 percent of employees will be military veterans. Priority will also be given to local vendors

Complying with cannabis business regulations presents a challenge for start-ups and smaller firms. Corporate and regulatory attorneys often help clients understand and comply with complex regulations. This is especially true in the cannabis industry.

In the United States, many industries lack well thought out regulatory policy. Some industries, like cannabis, suffer from over-regulation, overwhelming smaller businesses with the legal costs of compliance. Others suffer from under-regulation, leading to a lack of consumer and employee protection, as well as confusion and chaos. Under-regulation of our financial market was part of what led to the Great Recession in 2008.

Attorneys are usually the ones best positioned to critique bad business regulations and advocate for better policy. Well-resourced corporations often hire attorney-lobbyists to do just that. Most small or medium-sized cannabis businesses cannot afford to lobby, and so they instead join trade organizations or the like to advocate together as a group. But collective bargaining comes with its downsides. For example, one person’s business interests may diverge from their peers’. Plus, industries include countless different business types, and what’s good for the goose may not be good for the gander.

So the question becomes: How does one advocate for better cannabis business regulations?
