The majority of New York employers are barred from drug testing employees for off-the-clock cannabis use, according to new guidance. The New York State Department of Labor (DOL) released new guidance regarding legalized recreational marijuana use and the workplace including the new worker protections.

The DOL published amendments to an existing labor law entitled New York Labor Law 201-D: Adult Cannabis in the Workplace, including specific guidelines about drug testing for cannabis in the workplace.

New York’s bill to legalize adult-use cannabis, approved last March, already prohibits most employers from conducting against off-the-clock cannabis use. New York’s Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA) was intended to create a

Congress may be on the verge of removing a crucial impediment that has kept Washington, D.C. from implementing the recreational marijuana law it passed years ago.

The appropriations bill introduced by Democrats in the United States Senate on Monday evening did not contain the so-called “Harris Rider” that has prevented the District of Columbia from enjoying legal weed, despite voters there passing a legalization proposal all the way back in 2014.

Written by Republican Congressman Andy Harris of Maryland, “the budget rider written by Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.) has

One of the great things about cannabis tinctures is the fact that there’s really no wrong way to take them.

Over the last decade or so, as marijuana acceptance has steadily increased, consumers have had more options from which to choose as far as consumption methods go. Nowadays, many cannabis consumers can simply take a stroll into their local dispensary and be greeted by a smorgasbord of edibles, cartridges, extracts and tinctures.

Although they’re relatively new to most cannabis consumers, tinctures are actually one of the oldest ways of ingesting marijuana for medicinal purposes. In fact, records reveal that before cannabis was deemed illegal in the U.S., it was a fairly common treatment for both people and pets.

“Taking risks was never a problem. Learning management took discipline,” explains serial investor, fund manager and well-known risk taker, Andy DeFrancesco. Toronto native Andy DeFrancesco has been a successful investor for over 26 years. Specializing in private equity, he’s made a name for himself by taking risks that few would even consider and making controversial calls when it comes to his investment strategy.

Originally an equity trader, he took his two decades of experience and became a banker, then fund manager at notable firms including Merrill Lynch Canada and Canaccor Genuity. Some of his most risky investments include a 2006 investment in oil wells in drug and violence-plagued Columbia and then a gamble on a tiny gold mine in Northern Ireland. Both of which, though initially seeming to be unwise plays, turned out to be exceptionally lucrative.

If you’re still at the point where you are playing lawyer sometimes or all of the time with your cannabis business contracts, then this post is for you.

I grew up in rural Wisconsin with two parents who were raised in the wake of the Great Depression. My parents had a bunch of kids, and we did not have a lot of extra money beyond covering our necessities. I share this because when I talk to prospective cannabis clients who are worried about finances, I understand where they are coming from. They always want to know if we can discount our fees or sign off on a boilerplate contract they bought for $50 online or cobbled together from a few other contracts. Unfortunately for them – but also fortunately for them – we don’t work like that because nothing we do is boilerplate.

Lawyers and businesspeople talk about boilerplate in contracts, but hemp and marijuana business owners throw the term around differently than lawyers do. When business owners talk about boilerplate, they use the term to encompass any contract or contract term they think doesn’t matter very much. Often I hear, “We have already put together the business terms –
