Ohio Supreme Court: Lawyers Can’t Help Medical Marijuana Industry
Although cannabis is now legal in Ohio for medicinal use, a panel for the state’s Supreme Court said recently that lawyers are not permitted to provide legal services for those groups and individuals interested in getting into the business of medical marijuana because cultivation, sale and use of herb still remains illegal in the eyes of the federal government.
According to a ruling handed down last week by the Ohio Supreme Court’s Board of Professional Conduct, attorneys are not only prohibited from lending legal aid to those people working to establish a legitimate cannabis operation, but these professionals are also forbade from using medical marijuana even if their doctor provides them with a recommendation.
The Marijuana Show Could Become The Shark Tank for Ganjapreneurs
Spirits were high at the Southern California Cannabis Conference & Expo, held in San Diego on Aug. 7. It wasn’t the crowd you might expect at a cannabis convention. While Sublime songs did make the occasional appearance, most gathered were there to talk the big business of marijuana.
The expo brought out dozens of cannabis-based businesses, some so huge they trade on the New York Stock Exchange, such as Medical Marijuana Inc., whose assets total more than $216 million, according to its 2015 annual report and whose main distributor, HempMeds, had a huge booth at the conference. Others are so small they consist of a mom and daughter cooking edibles in their kitchen and packaging them to sell at dispensaries.

Subway Employee In Jail After Dosing Police Officer's Drink With Meth and THC
Subway, “Eat Meth?”
An employee with the national sandwich chain Subway is in some serious trouble with the law after he allegedly slipped a dose of methamphetamine and THC into the beverage of a local law enforcement officer, sending the cop on high-speed ride to the hospital.
It all began on Monday afternoon when a sergeant with the Layton Police Department in Utah rolled through the drive-thru at a local Subway restaurant to grab some lunch. Inside the store, 18-year-old Tanis Lloyd Ukena was responsible for putting together the officer’s order. But rather than simply completing the transaction, the teen decided it would be a clown shoe riot to lace the officer’s drink with some mind and body-altering substances.
