And the summer is (almost) over

3 mins read

We are back – and the summer is almost over.

In the US, cannabis is on the agenda in Congress in the coming weeks – and perhaps on the campaign trail too. In Canada, where cannabis is always on the agenda, a new milestone has (perhaps) been reached with legal sales.

On the Business of Cannabis front, this week is a big one: we’ll launch a new website this week – as well as make some major announcements about upcoming events including Cannabis + Technology and Medical Cannabis Week.

Hang tight for those upcoming announcements, and in the meantime, be sure to sign up for our upcoming Cannabis Forward event on September 16: Quebec 2.0: Myths, challenges and the stigma of success.

Have a great last week of summer.

Read on…

If you happen to live in Florida… and are a medical cannabis patient… and like edibles – last week was a good one for you. Edibles are now part of the program. Ganjapreneur

High Tide is buying Meta – shaking up the private cannabis retail landscape considerably. Yahoo Finance

and Finally…

Here’s something for your legal files: CTT Pharma is suing Aurora for using their technology and not paying. BUT, that’s only part of the announcement – they are also adding Dr. Shane Morris (most recently at Aurora) to their Advisory Board. Interesting times indeed. Technical 420
