Here are the top 5 stories of the past week
Happy Monday! We got a lot to catch you up on as the last week has been a wild one, to say the least. Oregon’s US Attorney has stated that due to overproduction and illegal operations, he will be forced to use federal law to go after traffickers and those violating state guidelines. L.A. did a purge of their own so to speak by arresting 142 people and charging them with a variety of offenses aimed at taking down the illegal market plaguing the newly formed recreational industry in California. We also saw MedMen, one of the largest cannabis brands in the United States, go public on the Canadian exchange due to the federal prohibition of cannabis in the United States. There is concern this will lead more major companies to choose to IPO in Canada, vs waiting for the federal government to reschedule and legalize cannabis nationwide. There is much, much more to get caught up on so without further ado here are your top 5 stories from the past week.
