The Scuttlebutt Featuring Articles About Microdosing Could Make You Feel More Authentic 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 – “Authentically expressing oneself is considered integral to personal fulfillment and wellbeing, and understanding the factors that contribute to this sense of authenticity is of great interest. Microdosing, the practice of ingesting minuscule doses of psychedelics (psilocybin, LSD, etc.) that do not induce perceptual alterations, has gained attention in recent years for its reported positive effects. A new study, published in the journal of Nordic Studies on Alcohol and Drugs Online, aims to shed light on whether microdosing could make you feel more authentic, providing fresh insights into the potential benefits of this practice.”

#cbdproducts – “On Wednesday the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Trade Commission warned six companies about selling these copycat food products that contain delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as delta-8 THC, a substance found in the cannabis sativa plant.

The snack foods with delta-8 THC can be mistaken for regular chips, cookies, candies and gummies, according to the FDA….

The FDA sent warning letters to Delta Munchies, Dr. Smoke LLC (also known as Dr. S LLC), Exclusive Hemp Farms/Oshipt, Nikte’s Wholesale LLC, North Carolina Hemp Exchange LLC and The Haunted Vapor Room.”

#cannabispolitics – “A campaign to legalize adult-use marijuana in Ohio announced on Wednesday it had submitted the necessary signatures to place the issue before voters in the general election this November.
The Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol said that it had submitted more than 222,000 signatures from Ohioans across all 88 counties of the state.
Coalition spokesperson Tom Haren said in a statement, “Our issue will authorize the possession and use of marijuana by adults 21 and over and provide a framework for the state to ensure proper regulation and fair taxation.””

222K Signatures Submitted To Put Legal Pot On Ohio Ballot:

#cannabisenforcement – “The New York City Council Committee on Public Safety has approved a bill that will hold landlords accountable for knowingly leasing a commercial premises to a tenant who sells cannabis or tobacco products without a license, City Land reports. The bill aims to cut down on unlicensed cannabis dispensaries which have proliferated in the city as the state has been slow to issue retail licenses.

Under the measure, the first time an unlicensed retailer is found operating at a leased commercial site, either the Sheriff’s Office under the NYC Department of Finance or another enforcement agency will issue a written warning to the landlord, which will provide the landlord with knowledge of the tenant’s unlicensed activity and allow the landlord to evict the tenant, the report says. If an unlicensed retailer is found operating in the same commercial premises after a warning has been issued, the landlord will be fined $5,000 for the first violation, and $10,000 for each subsequent violation.”

#cannabispolitics – “A proposed amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) would end cannabis testing for members of the military — both when they’re enlisting and accepting a commission.

If the amendment is included in the NDAA, H.R. 2670 (118), it would address a growing issue in the U.S. military: the increasing number of recruits who test positive for marijuana use, particularly in states where it is legal. Nearly 33 percent more recruits tested positive in 2022 than in 2020, according to the New York Times.”

#cannabisindustry – “Cannabis firm MedMen announced Wednesday its fifth CEO since 2020 with the appointment of Ellen Deutsch, who will be tasked with turning around the once-industry-leading company that now stands on the verge of a financial collapse fueled by high debt.”

#californiacannabis – “Santa Barbara County’s Board of Supervisors just gave their initial approval for a law that would shut down any cannabis business if they’re more than 30 days late on paying their taxes. At least one official expressed concerns that the measure would be a “death penalty” because there are no exceptions to the severe punishment for any companies who don’t pay.

The county’s Board of Supervisors passed the amendment to its cannabis ordinance unanimously in a first reading on June 27, but it still needs a second vote later this month before it becomes law. Two of the board members expressed concern over the amendment’s severe penalties.”

#cannabisindustry – “The unprecedented struggle over what’s left of the once-prominent distribution company is a wave in a broader ripple effect that observers fear could sink more California cannabis businesses amid a cash squeeze plaguing the state’s marijuana industry.

In terms of what’s left of Santa Ana-based Herbl, retailers, brands, investors and creditors as well as state and federal tax collectors appear to be in a race to be the first to collect money from a rapidly vanishing pot.

Herbl’s unprecedented collapse is also a test case for the U.S. marijuana industry as a whole.”
