Law Firms Hedge Bets on Marijuana Being Legalized Nationwide
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A number of Philadelphia-area law firms are setting up practices to serve the cannabis industry despite concerns of an uncertain future.
Many of the city's biggest law firms — including Duane Morris, Fox Rothschild and Cozen O'Connor — have recently established practices to serve the cannabis industry as Pennsylvania gears up to make medical marijuana available to patients by early 2018.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reported (http://bit.ly/2vS4Pm3 ) the uncertainty comes from the apparent disconnect between state and federal laws.
Marijuana has been legalized in some form by legislatures in 26 states. But federal law — under the supremacy clause of the U.S. Constitution — supersedes all state laws.

Nevada Pot License Expansion on Hold Again Until August 29
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada’s marijuana regulators have agreed to delay the expansion of distribution licensing to meet growing demand at pot retail stores until the state tax commission can hear another appeal from a group of state liquor wholesalers next week.
A Carson City judge lifted an injunction last week that had prohibited the Nevada Taxation Department from licensing anyone other than alcohol businesses to transport recreational marijuana from cultivators to dispensaries.
Judge James Russell said he had no authority to override the department’s decision earlier this month that there weren’t enough alcohol distributors to keep up with demand.
Philippines: Duterte Calls for Genocide Against Drug Users
Police in the Philippines killed 32 people in a wave of anti-drug operations north of the capital, Manila—making Wednesday the single deadliest day so far of President Rodrigo Duterte‘s ultra-deadly War on Drugs.
Over 100 were also arrested in the sweeps—overwhelmingly street-level dealers—and dozens of firearms reportedly seized. The operations were jointly carried out by National Police and Bulacan provincial authorities. Duterte expressed open enthusiasm for the bloodshed—and warned that it is just beginning.
“There were 32 killed in Bulacan in a massive raid, that’s good,” he said in a speech. “Let’s kill another 32 every day. Maybe we can reduce what ails this country.”
