The Scuttlebutt Featuring Articles About CA Cannabis Companies Tied To Fake Union and More

In the days of the Armada, a fleet of warships, the scuttlebutt was the rumor or gossip that would spread throughout the ship. Today, Armada Law Corp presents The Scuttlebutt, a daily summery of news articles that people within the cannabis, hemp and plant medicine industries are chatting about along with links to the full articles.

In today’s news:

#californiacannabis – “To be clear, I am not a fan of enforcement. I think that incentives work a lot more than disincentives. If the state wanted to eliminate the illegal cannabis market, it should have never required costly licensing or allowed local control. But at this point in time, it’s not really realistic to think that the state will ever do things like eliminate licensing or taxes or do away with local control. Even putting aside the difficulties in changing the law, too many people have spent too much money getting licenses.”


#californiacannabis – “At least a dozen California cannabis businesses that signed required agreements with a labor union now deemed illegitimate – including collapsed distribution giant Herbl – are at risk of losing their licenses, state regulators said Monday.

California law requires marijuana businesses to sign a labor peace agreement with a “bona fide” labor organization before they are issued a state license.”


#cannabispolitics – “As predicted, the Oregon Legislature took action this past session to crack down on landowners who lease their land to illegal cannabis growers. Governor Kotek signed SB 326 into law last month, and its emergency clause makes it effective immediately.

The new law makes landowners responsible for the cleanup of cannabis, irrigation systems, hoop houses, green houses, other structures, and chemicals used in an illegal cannabis operation on the landowner’s property. The landowner has 30 days after notification from a law enforcement agency to conduct such cleanup. If the landowner fails to do so, the city or county may conduct the cleanup and place a lien on the property for the costs. The lien may be foreclosed in the same manner as other government liens. The law also makes it a crime to divert water or dig wells for the illegal grow operation, and makes it a crime for the growers to threaten to report migrant workers tending the crop to authorities for deportation.”


#cannabisindustry – “The ban follows an array of incidents detailed by the agency, stemming back to 2021. But the most severe of those occurred in June 2022 when Sky Labs distributed Chewii Sour Cherry Edibles to employees.
Instead of using them correctly, one employee gave the edibles to her 4-year-old, who consumed two and became seriously ill, having to be hospitalized due to “adverse reactions” to the edibles, the release said.
A police report was filed with the Davison City Police Department and an investigation was opened with Michigan Child Protective Services, according to the release.
The poisoning incident had been just the latest in a string of violations, according to the state. Back in 2021, the agency said, Sky Labs vape concentrates failed testing for banned chemical residues, an additional product failed testing for Vitamin E Acetate, an analyte banned for inhalation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.”
