The Scuttlebutt Featuring Articles About North Carolina Tribe To Vote On Recreational Cannabis 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:

#cannabisindustry – “Recreational marijuana could become available in North Carolina, but only from the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians.

Members of the federally recognized native tribe, based on a 57,000-acre tract they own in the western part of the state, about 46 miles from Asheville, will vote Sept. 7 on whether to legalize adult-use cannabis, the Charlotte Observer reported.


#californiacannabis – “At its California State Fair booth, the Department of Cannabis Control erected “the wall,” asking cannabis consumers where they buy their weed and to place their answers on sticky notes for display at the second annual California Cannabis Exhibit. It’s at the Cal Expo Fairgrounds in Sacramento running through July.

On the first day, July 14, it didn’t take long before the notes filled the wall exhibit. That, according to department spokesperson David Hafner, showed an overwhelming receptiveness among consumers to share their thoughts, no matter how glib they became. Answers scribbled on the notes ranged from “Green Goddess” and “Valley Pure” to “Jeff” and “Gifted.””


#psychedelics – “The City of West Hollywood will host a Community Educational Forum to discuss the potential decriminalization of mushrooms (Psilocybin) and other hallucinogenic drugs at the state level. The forum will feature a panel discussion with experts in mental health, legislation, and drug policy reform.

The Community Educational Forum will take place on Tuesday, July 25, 2023, at 6:30 p.m. at the City of West Hollywood’s Council Chambers/Public Meeting Room, located at 625 N. San Vicente Boulevard. The event is free and open to the public, with no advance RSVP required. Limited validated parking will be available in the adjacent Five-Story West Hollywood Park structure.”
