Ohio Allows Curbside Cannabis Pickup During Pandemic

Medical marijuana dispensaries in Ohio have been given the option of providing curbside pickup of cannabis products for their patients in an effort to help control the spread of the coronavirus. The temporary permission to complete medical marijuana purchases outside dispensaries was announced on Friday in a bulletin from the Ohio Board of Pharmacy.

Under a resolution adopted by the board, medical marijuana providers will be permitted to conduct sales transactions outside of the licensed dispensary area under certain conditions.

“Examples of authorized sales include delivering product to a person in the parking lot of the dispensary, a person at the front entrance of the dispensary, or a person at a walk-up or drive-thru window of the dispensary,” reads the notice from the board.

To comply with the temporary rules, transactions must be completed on the dispensary’s property, such as a parking lot or sidewalk. Deliveries to a patient or caregiver’s home or other off-site location are prohibited. Before transactions are completed, dispensaries are required to check a patient or caregiver’s medical marijuana registration and approved identification. The provider must also verify the patient’s recommendation and ensure that they are not exceeding a mandated cap that limits patients to a

Delaware Becomes Next State to Offer Medical Cannabis Delivery

Delaware appears to be the next to join the ranks of states to offer delivery services to medical marijuana patients in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Delaware chapter of NORML trumpeted the news on Friday, saying that state “officials, lawmakers and compassion center owners are working together to quickly roll out delivery options for cannabis patients.” 

The medical cannabis provider Columbia Care confirmed its role in the policy change, announcing on its website that it is “proud to be the first medical marijuana company in Delaware to deliver products to patients and designated caregivers who meet pre-qualifying conditions for home delivery.” 

In order to qualify for delivery, Columbia Care said patients must be a Delaware “medical marijuana card holder, have previously registered with our staff, and live within a 30 mile radius of a selected dispensary.”

The company said it is adhering to “recommendations offered by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as well as state and local governments to protect our communities and to help limit the spread of the virus.” 

According to NORML, Columbia Care will offer the service “hopefully in the coming weeks.”

Delaware Cannabis Business Incorporation: Authorized and Issued Shares

Even though COVID-19 continues to wreak havoc on the world and the U.S. economy, we continue to work on interesting and complex business deals with our cannabis clients with many clients either looking to acquire or be acquired as the industry matures and inevitable consolidation occurs. And because many deals continue to have a Delaware component, this post addresses relevant issues when forming a Delaware entity, specifically a Delaware C corporation.

In a prior blog post my colleague Vincent Sliwoski said the following regarding Delaware entities:

People will say things like “half of all public companies are registered there,” or “my other company is a Delaware company,” or “Delaware has no state income tax.” Most of the time, none of these are great reasons to register a cannabis company in that state. This is because nearly all cannabis companies are small, privately held businesses that receive no tax benefits and no meaningful liability protection by registering in Delaware, or anywhere out-of-state. Large, publicly traded companies, on the other hand, may prefer Delaware registration for various reasons, including: 1) Delaware law protects directors and officers from derivative liability (to shareholders and non-managing members); 2) Delaware has a unique “Court of

Cannabis, Bar Industries Eligible for $40B Government Bank Credit Program

Devastated bars and lounges as well as the country’s hard-hit cannabis sector will have access to $40 billion in new credit being made available via the government’s business bank during the COVID-19 crisis, its CEO said on Sunday.

In an interview with The Canadian Press, Michael Denham said the program from the Business Development Bank of Canada would now be open to all businesses.

“Any legal business is eligible to be part of the program — that was what I think some industry groups were concerned about,” Denham said from Montreal. “That was clarified and we’re going to formally announce it on Monday.”

Stoners Cheered When Canada Legalised Cannabis. How Did It Go So Wrong?

Growers have gone bust, and the black market is still thriving.

The lights shone more brightly than anything I’d ever seen. One million blinding watts strafed across the leaves of countless cannabis plants that peeled off in neat rows in every direction. The warehouse was as pristine as a pharmaceutical facility, and as we strode around in crisp white nylon overalls and box-fresh wellies, the atmosphere was surreal – interstellar, almost: – it felt as if we were on a mission to Mars. It was definitely a glimpse of the future.

It was 2017 and I had been invited to visit this legal medical cannabis “grow” in the town of Gatineau, near Ottawa. I was in Canada after writing a paper for the drug-law reform thinktank Volteface, proposing an online-only, legal cannabis market in the UK as a way to break the logjam between the UK’s two million cannabis smokers and those who fear legalisation. I was meeting with Canadian police and politicians to hear more about that country’s plans to completely legalise cannabis the following year.
