Yacht Wars: Pot Company Kicked off San Diego Dock during Comic-Con
Who booted Budtrader.com off a ritzy yacht dock during Comic-Con last weekend—and why? Nobody will say, so now lawyers are involved.
Without a doubt, the place to be during Comic-Con in San Diego last week was the Fifth Avenue Landing marina.
The dockyard of choice for any super-yachts in town at any time, Fifth Avenue is within sight and sound of Comic-Con’s main events at the San Diego Convention Center. It’s the best place to spot celebrities—Justin Timberlake had disembarked here at Comic-Cons past, and this was where Conan O’Brien would anchor his star-studded coverage for TBS—as well as the after-hours party place of choice. IMDB had its invitation-only party here, and the party yachts for content magnates like Amazon.com would be docked here all weekend long.
It made perfect sense, then, for Brad McLaughlin, CEO of medical-marijuana marketplace Budtrader.com—a “Craigslist for weed” active in every state where cannabis is legal in some form (31 and counting)—to pick Fifth Avenue as the place to make a big splash for his company’s brand.
Maryland’s Highest Court Hears Medical Marijuana Case
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — An attorney for the state of Maryland is asking the state’s highest court to allow finalists for licenses to grow medical marijuana to intervene in a lawsuit.
Julia Bernhardt, an assistant attorney general, said Thursday the finalists have a direct economic interest in the lawsuit’s outcome. She says the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission can’t represent their interests, because the panel represents the public interest.
Alternative Medicine Maryland, an applicant that wasn’t selected, alleges in its lawsuit that the commission didn’t consider racial diversity of applicants as required. It wants to block the panel from awarding licenses until the lawsuit is resolved. Attorney Byron Warnken says companies who may benefit shouldn’t be able to intervene.
