DISPENSARY DISPLAY CABINETS and CASES

These 4 States Could Approve Adult-Use in November 2020

https://gopurepressure.com/blogs/cannabis-news/these-4-states-could-approve-adult-use-in-november

The 2020 election in the United States will be a turning point for Americans in many walks of life, and the cannabis industry is no different. Four states have the opportunity to legalize adult-use cannabis thanks to ballot initiatives passed earlier this year.

Consumers in these states will no doubt desire high-end cannabis products like ice water hash and solventless concentrates, should voters decide to approve these measures. Each of these four states reached this point in their unique ways, but one thing holds – the people have spoken, and they believe it’s time to decide on recreational laws in their state.

Arizona – Passed Adult Use

After an adult-use measure failed to pass in Arizona in 2016, it’s back on the general election ballot in 2020. This year’s initiative, Prop 207: The Smart and Safe Arizona act, was led by the group Smart and Safe Arizona. State officials qualified Prop 207 for this year’s ballot on August 10.

If passed, adults aged 21 and older would be legally able to possess up to one ounce of cannabis with up to 5 grams of concentrates. Possession of over an ounce but under 2.5 ounces would be considered a petty offense. The offense would likely result in a fine for the offender. Possessing more than 2.5 ounces is an arrestable offense, although at this time, it is unclear if the crime would be for simple possession or for possession with intent to deliver.

Residents who live alone could legally grow up to 6 plants, while homes with two or more adults grow up to 12 plants. An excise tax of 16% would be placed on the sale of cannabis products when dispensaries open on April 5, 2021, at the latest.

Cannabis consumption is permitted only in residents’ privacy – not in public places such as sidewalks and parks. Consuming in public would also be considered a petty offense. Operating any motor vehicle (even a boat or a plane) while high would be a punishable offense under the state’s zero-tolerance policy. Edibles would be capped at 10mg, with packages of edibles limited to a total of 100mg.

Connoisseurs in the Grand Canyon state already have a love for solventless extractions and similar products like ice water hash. However, interest from multiple state operators (MSOs) to establish dispensaries isn’t as high as other states because it is hard to get a license in Arizona.

The quick turnaround in states like Arizona, making a speedy transition from medical to possible recreational, reflects a fundamental shift in attitudes towards cannabis that Americans now have. According to the Pew Research Center, this rapid shift in state cannabis markets is thanks to a change in public perception, as 67 percent of Americans now favor legal cannabis.

If Prop 207 passes in Arizona, it is likely to infuriate one prohibitionist in particular – former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Arpaio lost to his former deputy in his run for reelection as sheriff. Although Arpaio claimed to support medical cannabis “kind of,” NORML gave the former sheriff an F grade on cannabis policy because the former Sheriff “has one of the worst records on cannabis justice in the history of American politics.”

New Jersey – Passed Adult Use

Although most cannabis legalization policy initiatives are qualified via signatures, New Jersey is unique. Voters will decide this year on Public Question 1. If passed, an amendment will be made to the state constitution legalizing cannabis for adults 21 and over. If approved, the Garden State will become the third in the northeast U.S. to legalize adult use. The state commission overseeing the sale of medical cannabis would also oversee the adult-use market.

Massachusetts was first in the Northeast to legalize adult-use, with sales becoming fully operational as of November 2018. Voters in Vermont decided they wanted legal cannabis in July of 2018, becoming the second in the Northeast to do so, but recreational sales have not yet gone into effect. If passed, sales in New Jersey could become operational faster than most states because policymakers laid out legal weed sales last year – with the Assembly falling short of passing the law by only five votes.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Nicholas Scutari (D) introduced the previous legalization bill that narrowly failed to pass. Still, he believes New Jersey can be “a leader” in the Northeast for recreational sales, according to Marijuana Moment.

“Public Question No. 1 would also create a legalized cannabis marketplace overseen by the State’s Cannabis Regulatory Commission,” the Senator added.

New Jersey’s people overwhelmingly support legal cannabis, with seven out of ten voters polled indicating as such earlier this summer. Another more recent poll showed voters supporting the measure by a ratio of 2 to 1. One of the more notable of those with roots in the garden state showing public support for the effort is filmmaker Kevin Smith, well-known for his films Clerks, Dogma, and the Jay and Silent Bob movies.

Despite this overwhelming support, 70 municipalities already said no to legal sales in their area. NJ.com reports that police in the state are still making 100 simple possession arrests a day, of which a disproportionate number are people of color.

Montana – Passed Adult Use

In June, Montana activists collected a total of more than 130,000 signatures from supporting voters, qualifying two state ballot initiatives. Statutory Initiative 190 would legalize, regulate, and tax cannabis in the state, as well as the possession and consumption of limited amounts. The MT Department of Revenue would oversee the licensing and regulation of sales, cultivation, and transport of cannabis products.

Activists with the organization New Approach Montana spearheaded the legalization campaign and the two ballot initiatives, saying that taxes and fees could generate about $48 million a year by 2025. If passed, a 20% tax would be placed on non-medical cannabis sales in Montana, with particular revenue accounts for conservation programs, substance abuse treatment, and veterans’ services.

However, there is a bit of a snag in the legalization efforts of the people of Montana. The state constitution defines people over 18 and older as adults, “except that the legislature or the people by initiative may establish the legal age of purchasing, consuming, or possessing alcoholic beverages,” according to New Approach MT.

For the legalization of adult-use to happen in Montana, Constitutional Initiative 118 would have to pass, which would allow the state legislature to establish the legal age of purchasing and consuming cannabis. The second initiative stipulates that only persons 21 or older in Montana can consume cannabis.

Opponents of the two ballot questions, Wrong for Montana, attempted a last-minute lawsuit, arguing to the state Supreme Court that the initiatives violated state law by appropriating money to particular programs. The Supreme Court rejected the suiters’ petition, stating that they failed to demonstrate reasons to move the case to the high court urgently. Such claims must first be heard by the state trial and appeals courts.

As such, Montana citizens will vote on the two initiatives as planned.

South Dakota – Passed Both Medical and Adult Use

South Dakota could create history if it passes two cannabis-related ballot questions.

Led by policy reform activists from the groups South Dakotans for Better Marijuana Laws and New Approach South Dakota, voters will decide on whether to enact into law both medical and recreational cannabis simultaneouslyMeasure 26 would establish a medical cannabis program for patients with qualifying conditions with doctors’ recommendations. Constitutional Amendment A would establish regulation and licensing for the sale of cannabis to adults 21 and older for recreational purposes, as well as protect medical patients’ access to plant medicine.

If enough voters say yes to amendment A and Measure 26, South Dakota could become the first state to pass recreational and medical at the same time. The unprecedented occurrence would come during an unparalleled year and create an uncharted path in American cannabis laws. If both ballot measures pass, South Dakota officials would have to establish regulations and policies for two emerging markets simultaneously.

South Dakota’s medical cannabis program appears to have garnered much voter support, including an ad from a retired state police officer. However, there isn’t as much support for the recreational market, which could fail and possibly be voted on again in 2022 and 2024. The most prominent legalization opponent is South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem (R), who appeared in an ad from the No Way On Amendment A committee. The governor says she’s heard from law enforcement and addiction counselors who favor the continued prohibition of cannabis.

As the legal Marijuana business continues to grow by leaps and bounds, it is expected to run into some difficulty in the more conservative states.  Overall the Cannabis display case industry is growing extremely fast and our company is in the middle of hiring additional carpenters and glass and aluminum specialist to meet the demand.

CANNABIS DISPLAY CASE DESIGNS AND MANUFACTURING GUIDELINES

Balancing Compliance With Environmental Sustainability

https://cannabisbusinesssummit.com/2020/06/15/balancing-compliance-with-environmental-sustainability/

While it’s important for the legal cannabis industry to ensure patients have access to medicine, push for policy that removes the plant from the purview of law enforcement, and proactively address the harms of the drug war, there’s one area of social justice that directly impacts the lives of every human: protecting the environment.

From increased awareness of illegal trespass grows to the importance of sustainable farming practices and much more, cannabis business owners and operators must find a way to prioritize environmental sustainability while also building a viable industry. In this post, we explore why tackling plastic packaging and the waste from vape products is the first order of business.

The Plastic & E-Waste Problem

E-cigarettes and cannabis vaping have increased in popularity over the last decade. As a result, there’s an even greater burden on the environment with batteries, pods, and pens winding up in landfill and increasing the risk of ground and water contamination. Between China’s role as the epicenter of vape component manufacturing, and legal cannabis existing under state-led regulatory structures as opposed to federal legalization, there is no central recycling or other disposal program in place to help consumers understand how to properly dispose of e-waste.

At the same time, legal markets mandating the use of single-use, child-resistant, and other protective packaging in addition to exit bags at retail has contributed to the industry’s continued reliance upon plastic, despite the rampant pollution it causes.

Exploring Solutions

These realities underscore the critical need for the industry to seek out innovative solutions that balance legal compliance with environmental sustainability. Companies have started sourcing other materials for their packaging designs including glass, hemp, and even plastic removed from the ocean. On the retail side, some stores have activated loyalty programs to encourage customers to return packaging to the store for recycling. And individual jurisdictions have started educating consumers about what’s recyclable, reusable, or trash from their cannabis product packaging.

Driven in part by the coronavirus outbreak placing Chinese manufacturing on hold, cannabis companies are already looking to American sources for managing possible lapses in the supply chain. If adopted on a larger scale, with time, the move could ultimately shift vape manufacturing to the U.S., making it possible to create a system of domestic production in which setting and enforcing national guidelines for environmental sustainability will be the utmost priority.

Join us for many educational panels on these topics the upcoming Cannabis Business Summit in San Francisco, happening September 29 – October 1, 2020 at Moscone Center. The National Cannabis Industry Association started advocating for a responsible cannabis industry a decade ago, and in celebration of its 10th year, NCIA brings its business-to-business cannabis tradeshow to the birthplace of the medical cannabis movement. Cannabis business owners and operators won’t want to miss this opportunity to meet industry leaders, explore products and services to help grow their business, and learn the latest insights from the industry’s largest and most influential trade association.
