The Scuttlebutt Featuring Articles About Rescheduling Is Not Enough 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:

#cannabispolitics – “Armentano also noted that rescheduling cannabis does not resolve the conflict between federal and state policy.

“Rescheduling the cannabis plant to Schedule III of the U.S. Controlled Substances Act fails to adequately address this conflict, as existing state legalization laws — both adult use and medical — will continue to be in conflict with federal regulations, thereby perpetuating the existing divide between state and federal marijuana policies,” he said in the email statement. “Just as it is intellectually dishonest to categorize cannabis in the same placement as heroin, it is equally disingenuous to treat cannabis in the same manner as anabolic steroids.””


#psychedelics – “The idea of using psychedelics to treat addiction is not a new concept, says Rayyan Zafar, a neuropsychopharmacologist at Imperial College London and researcher for the charity Drug Science. Without the war on drugs, it could have happened in the mainstream much earlier.”

#cannabisindustry – “In addition to leveling up the profitability of these companies, moving marijuana from a Schedule I drug should give carriers motivation to give the industry another look. An influx of capacity, reinsurers and additional excess limits are all probable, Stewart says, adding the Bermuda market and London syndicates are also likely to give the industry another look as well.”
