Election could stoke US marijuana market, sway Congress

Voters in four states from different regions of the country could embrace broad legal marijuana sales on Election Day, and a sweep would highlight how public acceptance of cannabis is cutting across geography, demographics and the nation’s deep political divide.

The Nov. 3 contests in New Jersey, Arizona, South Dakota and Montana will shape policies in those states while the battle for control of Congress and the White House could determine whether marijuana remains illegal at the federal level.

Already, most Americans live in states where marijuana is legal in some form and 11 now have fully legalized the drug for adults — Alaska, California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Colorado, Michigan, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maine and Vermont. It’s also legal in Washington, D.C.

Fullerton council defers vote on marijuana shop law

Fullerton’s City Council has tabled, for now, a proposed law that would allow regulated marijuana dispensaries, manufacturers and other business types in some of the city’s commercial and industrial areas.

During a meeting Tuesday, Oct. 20, the council voted 4-1 to delay a decision on the ordinance. Some council members argued more study and community outreach must be done to avoid the negative impact of shops, while others contend the move simply kicks an inevitable issue down the road.

California voters in 2016 passed Prop. 64, which legalized cannabis for recreational use by adults 21 and older. State law lets local leaders decide whether to allow – and tax – sectors of the industry, such as recreational or medical shops, cultivation and distribution, within cities or counties.

Ticker: Pols blast pending pot delivery regs; Providence unveils program to support small businesses

A handful of lawmakers from both sides of the aisle have asked that Massachusetts marijuana regulators scrap the proposed delivery license that would let operators buy marijuana wholesale from cultivators and manufacturers, store it in a warehouse and deliver it to consumers at home.

The Cannabis Control Commission is expected Tuesday morning to consider feedback and hold a final discussion about its draft delivery policy, which would create two distinct delivery license types: a “limited delivery license” that would allow an operator to charge a fee to make deliveries from CCC-licensed retailers and dispensaries, and a “wholesale delivery license.”

In a letter last week, 19 state lawmakers told the CCC that they “believe that the wholesale delivery license category proposed in the draft regulations was not contemplated, nor supported, by the enabling legislation” and asked the commission to reconsider its plan to take a final vote on …

Maine joins Massachusetts, opening doors to recreational pot sales

SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine — Mainers got their first opportunity to legally buy marijuana for recreational use, but a supply shortage was a potential buzzkill.

Retailers blame the pandemic and a limited number of licensed manufacturers for reducing the variety of products available. Licenses were issued only a month ago, causing retailers to scramble to stock their shelves.

That didn’t deter shoppers.
