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:

#cannabisindustry – “At this point, it is unclear if Pro-Tech 33 represented any North Bay cannabis companies. The probe discovered Pro-Tech 33 may have initially opened an unstaffed office in Bakersfield in 2018.

“In short, it is entirely unclear how anyone could identify Pro-Tech 33, any officers of Pro-Tech 33, or how to contact Pro-Tech 33, or anyone associated with it,” the complaint reads.

But an attorney responding to an email inquiry indicated the complaint did not specify whether Pro-Tech constitutes a legitimate union under the National Labor Relations Act.”


#cannabislaw – “Nine current or former Northern California police officers were charged Thursday in a federal corruption investigation that found evidence they committed civil rights violations and fraud in an effort to get a pay raise and lied on reports to cover up the use of excessive force, U.S. authorities said.

Ismail J. Ramsey, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of California, filed four indictments that outlined charges including wire fraud, deprivation of rights under color of law, conspiracy against rights, and conspiracy to distribute anabolic steroids. Nine police officers and one community service officer are named in the charges, though only two are charged in multiple indictments.

The investigation centered on the departments in Antioch and Pittsburg, two cities in the San Francisco Bay Area. Only three of the officers remain employed by the departments and were not on active duty, officials said.”

#californiacannabis – “Police responding to a burglar alarm early Friday at a cannabis dispensary shot and killed a person, authorities said, prompting a state Department of Justice investigation.

One other civilian was injured and taken to a hospital, authorities said. That person’s condition and specific injuries were not released Friday afternoon.

One police officer suffered unspecified minor injuries in the incident.”

#psilocybin – “The researchers at UCSD want to figure out if it can help treat phantom limb pain, a sensation sometimes felt by people who have lost a limb, the effects of which can range from discomfort to excruciating pain.”

#cannabislawsuit – “A self-designated consultant for a cannabis company says he can’t be held liable by the SEC for alleged misrepresentation through the firm because its CEO was responsible for the statements the commission alleges were false and misleading, asking that he be let go from the case on summary judgment.
Leonard Tucker argued in a Thursday motion in Florida federal court that it is indisputable that chief executive Dan Oran ran Profile Solutions Inc.
“There is no evidence in the record to suggest that Tucker had any independent decision-making authority on behalf of Profile. In fact, the record demonstrates that Oran made all decisions,” Tucker argues in the motion, in which he says he was merely a consultant.”
