Legalization and Licensing Milestones
As the New York State Office of Cannabis Management progresses its licensing program of legal cannabis businesses, be mindful of the open comment periods which come to an end soon. They are asking for public commentary with noted deadlines as follows:
NYS CANNABIS REGULATIONS OUT FOR PUBLIC COMMENT
- Proposed Laboratory Testing Regulations – comment period closes August 15, 2022
- Proposed Packaging, Labeling, Marketing and Advertising Regulations – comment period closes on August 15, 2022
- Revised Medical Cannabis Regulations – comment period closes September 19, 2022
Visit the Office of Cannabis Management website to learn more.
The New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission has proposed new rules and is also seeking public commentary. They have proposed new rules on numerous aspects of the state’s personal-use cannabis market and want to hear from the public.
The comment period expires September 30, 2022.

It seems that the prospect of federal legalization has signs of hope every now and again, and then the big “but” shows up. Cannabis legalization supporter, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, introduced legislation to legalize cannabis federally this past July 21.
But – it lacks the necessary bipartisan votes in the Senate to pass. The bill addresses giving states the rights to set cannabis laws in the wake of any federal legalization, including creation of business grant programs to those wanting to enter the industry in communities adversely affected by drug laws. Much more is addressed in the bill “but” much work and more support is needed to get any such bill or parts of it passed.

And by the way, related to Federal Legalization…
Recent poll data gathered by the Economist and YouGov showed that by a margin of 2 to 1, Americans are supportive of a Federal legalization mandate legalizing adult use of marijuana.

Our editors came across this Washington Post article and we wanted to share it. It is important to promote those world-wide heroes in our industry who are among the brave, courageous and committed. The cannabis conversation has been started by Kenyan presidential candidate George Wajackoyah. He is making it a cornerstone of his campaign.
A must read from the Washington Post.
