Several medical marijuana business owners filed a lawsuit against the City of Detroit Wednesday to allow existing medical dispensaries to also receive recreational licenses, yet another potential setback in getting the recreational cannabis industry up and running in the city.

If the city follows the current ordinance, medical facilities would not be given a shot at getting a recreational license until 2027, when the medical businesses would have likely already closed their doors from lack of sales, the plaintiffs say. They’re asking the court to intervene and stop Detroit from prohibiting dispensaries that sell both medical and recreational cannabis.

The plaintiffs say state law specifies that once municipalities opt into allowing cannabis businesses within city limits, they cannot prevent medical marijuana licensees from obtaining recreational licenses.

The city’s current ordinance does the opposite of what state law intends by “intentionally singling out and punishing the existing provisioning center licensees, who will all certainly be strangled to death and go out of business long before they are even eligible to apply for (recreational) retailer licenses in 2027,” the plaintiffs

A Portland man who robbed a marijuana dispensary in Eugene at gunpoint was sentenced Wednesday to seven years in federal prison.

Timothy Christopher Gaines, 30, was one of two masked men who entered the Green Therapy marijuana dispensary off Highway 99 on Dec. 20, 2019, and demanded money from the store clerk, according to federal prosecutors.

The two ordered the clerk to “Get on the ground. Don’t move. I’ll shoot you! Where’s the money? Don’t (expletive) move!” according to Gaines’ plea agreement.

Gaines then climbed onto a store counter and pointed a gun at the clerk, forcing him to lie on the floor with his arms stretched out, according to the court records.

The two masked intruders stole $912 from the register and four jars of marijuana, prosecutors said.

Gaines was identified through a palm print that police lifted from the counter, according to prosecutors.

Video surveillance footage also showed the armed robbers flee in a Mitsubishi car that had been stolen from Portland, according to prosecutors. The victim who reported her car stolen gave police the full name of the alleged thief, who turned out to have been a cellmate of Gaines in 2012 at the federal prison in Sheridan.

Gaines pleaded guilty to using and

A Hoboken condo association group is suing all parties related to a cannabis dispensary including the Jersey City mayor’s wife and her business partner in an attempt to block the project.

51-53 14th Street Condominium Association, Inc. filed a 23-page lawsuit against 51-53 14th Street Retail LLC, Exchange Physical Therapy Group, Drew Nussbaum, Jaclyn Fulop, Story Dispensary, Samantha Silva, and Howard Hintz in the Hudson County Superior Court Chancery Division on Monday.

“This action arises out of the deceit employed by the current owners of the commercial unit of an eight-unit Condominium building located in Hoboken, New Jersey to permit and facilitate the installation of a cannabis dispensary under the false pretense of relocating a physical therapy practice,” the lawsuit says.

“The proposed use is not only violative of the Association’s governing documents; it is incongruent with the character of the building, residential zone, and is undermined by the express representations made to the seller of the commercial unit to induce sale of the unit. In short, it is a prohibited use that should be enjoined and for which damages should issue.”

According to the plaintiffs attorneys, Vincenzo Mogavero and Martin Cabalar,

In cancer patients, cannabinoids have primarily been used as a part of palliative care to help alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, relieve nausea and stimulate appetite.

However, with the field evolving rapidly over the past years, thanks to both legislative efforts and push from marijuana advocates, some early clinical trials and studies of cannabinoids in treating cancer in humans have been in motion lately.

Last week, the federal government took a step forward in promoting financing opportunities for researchers to study the benefits and risks of marijuana for patients who have cancer.

The changes will put off formal adoption by a few weeks, but city cannabis business regulators expect that the eight applicants could be selected by November. It would take one to three years for them to actually open up for business.

All eight licenses will be reserved for “equity” business owners that have lower net worths, whose family has been affected by the war on drugs or who meet other metrics outlined in the city’s cannabis equity program. The city established this program because all 32 of the city’s allowed retail storefronts have already been claimed.

The city already has 156 equity applications in the pipeline, and the council wanted to ensure that eight of those applicants will end up opening a dispensary by adding a moratorium on new people applying.

“We’re talking about 156 applications and only eight people are going to get licenses,” Councilmember Al Austin said. “Tomorrow, once this is announced, you’ll probably get another 50 applications. The people that have been in this process should be rewarded.”

Councilmember Cindy Allen’s proposed change would require potential business operators to propose a 10-year business plan and require equity owners to maintain majority control of the dispensary for 10

The Thai government will distribute one million free cannabis plants to households across the nation in June to mark a new rule allowing people to grow cannabis at home, its health minister has said.

Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul announced the move in a Facebook post on May 8 in which he expressed his intention for cannabis plants to be grown like “household crops.”

The new rule, which comes into force on June 9, will allow people to grow cannabis plants at home after notifying their local government, but the plants will have to be of medical grade and used exclusively for medicinal purposes.
