The Scuttlebutt Featuring Articles About California Advances Psychedelics Bill To Senate Floor, Employee Emails May Not Be Owned By Employers 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:

#psychedelics – “A California bill to legalize the possession of certain psychedelics and facilitated use of the substances is heading to the Senate floor under an accelerated process that is allowing it to skip further committee consideration.

The legislation from Sen. Scott Wiener (D) cleared the Appropriations Committee without a hearing after the chairman invoked a rule to send it to the floor because it would have a negligible fiscal impact, the sponsor told Marijuana Moment on Monday.”


#litigation – “In modern business, nearly every employee and executive has access to and uses a computer on a regular basis. In line with this, employers expect that work computers will be used solely for work, and that work email accounts are property of the employer, not the individual employee or officer.
However, a recent decision by the Court of Appeal of the State of California, Second Appellate District found that something more is required: Without a clear policy in place prohibiting the use of an employer’s email accounts for personal purposes and informing employees that their work email accounts are subject to review, an employer may be prohibited from doing so, and evidence collected in that manner may be inadmissible if a dispute arises.”

Calif. Ruling Adds Employer Considerations On Email Policies:


#cannabisindustry – “In the nine years since legal recreational marijuana sales kicked off, states that have regulated retail cannabis have reaped over $15 billion in tax revenues, according to a report released Monday by the pro-legalization Marijuana Policy Project.
“States that have made the decision to legalize and regulate cannabis are benefiting from hundreds of millions in tax revenue each year,” said Toi Hutchinson, president and CEO of the Marijuana Policy Project, in a statement.”

#californiacannabis – “In an attempt to provide a desperately needed economic boost to this recently troubled industry and a move that will surely make the blood of prohibitionists everywhere boil over, The Golden State’s cannabis regulatory body, The Department of Cannabis Control announced a state-ran grant program to bolster access to cannabis in counties and jurisdictions without any licensed cannabis retailers. Even in a state as unanimously synonymous with cannabis history and cannabis culture as California is, there are still massive “cannabis deserts” that span several counties and hundreds of miles where there is not a single recreational cannabis dispensary.”
