In #California, #lawmakers propose controversial new #rules to #regulate the #state’s growing #hemp #industry. Assembly Bill #45, introduced by #Democrat Cecilia Aguiar-Curry, would allow #CBD in #food and #beverages, implement a licensing structure for hemp #manufacturers and #retailers, as well as increase product testing standards and labelling requirements. The proposal builds upon a similar #measure which failed to get a #vote in the legislature last summer due their higher focus on #pandemic #relief considerations. The more recent #legislation contains a contentious provision not included in the previous #bill, however; a ban on #smokable hemp, CBD #vape pens, and CBD in #alcoholic #drinks. The new restriction was reportedly requested by #Governor Gavin #Newsom’s administration, and would be subject to change based on the state’s FDA guidance. The bill is provoking harsh criticism from many Californian hemp #farmers, who argue it would impose over-burdensome regulations on the hemp #market, and would put it in the hands of marijuana interests. While proponents are pushing for the swift implementation of the legislation in order to protect the rapidly expanding industry, critics say it would achieve the exact opposite. What do you think?

In #Colorado, #Molson #Coors debuts a line of hemp-derived beverages, marking their first foray into the #American CBD market. Through a joint #venture with #Canadian #cannabis producer #Hexo called #Truss, the #beer giant is launching three flavored, #sparkling #seltzers under the #Veryvell brand name. The drinks, which each contain zero #calories and 20 milligrams of CBD, will be available to Colorado residents at select retail stores and online for 4 #dollars a can or 15 dollars a four-pack. Since partnering with Hexo in 2018, Molson Coors has introduced five #THC-infused beverages in #Canada. The company may be looking to get ahead of its competitors with the Colorado launch, as #Canopy Growth and the upcoming #Aphria/#Tilray combined entity are also poised to enter the U.S. cannabis-infused drinks space. According to Molson Coors executive Pete Marino, Colorado will serve as a testing ground for the new products, which are part of a mega-brand that the beer maker plans to fully develop within the next three years.

In finance, recent data from cannabis #software company #Akerna reveals #US #marijuana sales hit 427 #million dollars over the 2020 holiday season, spanning #December 18th to December 24th. The #Wednesday before #Christmas saw a 76 percent increase in daily sales at 87.3 million dollars, coming in as the third-largest sales day of the year just behind #Thanksgiving-eve, which is now dubbed “#Green Wednesday”. A pre-holiday poll from California-based marijuana company #Glass #House Group suggests cannabis #gift-giving could be behind the bump, with 52 percent of their customers planning on purchasing marijuana products as presents for someone else. New #Years Eve turned out to be the highest sales day of the year, at 89.4 million dollars. Glass House’s survey found 64 percent of respondents planned on replacing alcohol consumption with cannabis, possibly explaining the record numbers. Akerna’s analysis further disclosed #flower as the most popular product, higher sales among #men, and a doubling in infused #edible #sales over last year.

#Mexico releases highly anticipated #medical cannabis regulations, more than three years after the country legalized its use. The new rules from the #Ministry of #Health were originally ordered by Mexico’s #Supreme Court to be published in #June, before being pushed back multiple times due to coronavirus-prompted delays. The regulatory framework will set up a #cultivation licensing process, a national registry for #doctors, and an authorized pharmacy network for #MMJ product #distribution. It will also allow for the import and export of cannabis derivatives and medicines, as well as authorize medical marijuana research. This comes as Mexican lawmakers struggle to come up with policies regarding recreational cannabis sales, which were legalized in #October of 2018 and initially set to be launched a year later. Last month, after previous deadline extensions, the Supreme #Court gave the legislature until this coming April to establish corresponding laws to regulate the program. Once implemented, Mexico would represent the world’s largest legal #adult-use cannabis market.
