It’s been a while since I provided an update on the state of California psychedelics law, but there have been a few important updates in the last few weeks, so it’s now that time.

Before jumping in, I’ll remind readers that currently, all psychedelics are illegal under federal law unless a person has received an exemption, which is no easy task. Psychedelics are also illegal under California law. A handful of local jurisdictions have decriminalized psychedelics, but this has zero effect on federal, state, or even county law, and to boot may not even change local criminal laws. Generally, these only tell local law enforcement to make enforcement of local laws a low priority. And that hasn’t stopped arrests or enforcement in all cases, even in those cities.

With that out of the way, let’s talk about the two statewide efforts to provide access to psychedelics. The first up is SB-519, a bill that would have decriminalized a host of different plant and synthetic psychedelics and really changed penalties and enforcement. If you haven’t read my prior posts, keep in mind that SB-519 is not a legalization bill but a decriminalization bill, and that may be why it caught any traction in the

Many ketamine clinics enter into management agreements with management services organizations (“MSO”). The MSO provides a litany of services to the professional entities (“PE”) that are owned by healthcare providers, including billing and collections, financial and accounting services, providing space to the clinic through a lease, strategic planning, marketing, and many other types of management and administrative services.

Given the corporate practice of medicine doctrine (“CPOM”), an entity owned by medical providers must be careful when entering into a management services agreement (“MSA”) with an MSO. In general, CPOM, which varies from state to state, prohibits laypersons from employing and/or co-owing a clinical entity with healthcare providers. The underlying premise is that a layperson should not dictate medical decisions by healthcare providers– which makes sense. No one would want their healthcare providers driven by one goal– profits. Among other things, this could sacrifice the quality of care.

While CPOM varies from state to state, some states have extremely strict CPOM doctrines. Washington is one such state. In fact, in our experience, Washington may be the strictest CPOM state. New York and California likewise have strict CPOM doctrines, but they pale in comparison to Washington state.

Washington’s CPOM doctrine has been

DETROITPolice in Detroit have released a new video of at least four men breaking into Stash Detroit on Sept. 12.

At the time, the medical marijuana dispensary had major damage to the building and would be fully demolished two days later. Along with the video of the men, there are pictures of their faces and the clothes they were wearing.

The men were in violation of an emergency order, which closed off about sixth-tenths of a mile of Fort Street after an unexplained ground shifted nearly a week ago caused the road to buckle. Officials with DTE Energy and city of Detroit are still looking into what caused it.

Elected leaders rallied in the area Friday, asking if the problem cannot be identified and how can the city and DTE assure people they are not in danger.

Watch the full report in the video above.

The Farmer’s Wife celebrated the grand opening of its third dispensary in Missouri’s developing medical cannabis market Aug. 20. 

The new Springfield location incorporates many of the attributes that Director of Retail David Brodsky says sets the company apart in the state: a focus on retail paired with robust branding and a wide selection of products.

The Farmer’s Wife is locally owned by a group from Southwest Missouri, with its two other retail locations in Mountain Grove and West Plains. Brodsky spent the last decade working in the cannabis industry in California and Colorado before returning home to Missouri shortly after the state legalized medical cannabis in 2018.

One of the company’s owners previously worked in the pharmaceutical market and wanted to enter the cannabis industry to provide an alternative form of relief to patients, Brodsky says.

The Farmer’s Wife submitted its licensing applications in 2019 and ultimately won three retail licenses in early 2020, with its first dispensary opening on 4/20 of this year.

“We made the decision to focus on the retail side of things and stay focused on that and not get stretched too thin,” Brodsky says, adding that the company concentrated its operations around Springfield, one of the largest cities in

Thirty-seven states so far have legalized medical cannabis in some manner—Connecticut, New Mexico, New York, and Virginia were the latest to okay recreational marijuana (for adults) in 2020 and 2021. That means more growth opportunities for dispensaries. And a host of new restrictions to maneuver to open up shop.

One of the toughest, cannabis companies told Retail Brew, is zoning—which varies by state and even by municipality. 

Proximity to schools, day cares, and churches is strictly controlled, said Julie Winters, director of operations for Ayr Wellness, which handles everything from growing to selling cannabis. And it’s a lot of back and forth with different agencies, she added, to make sure their stores are in high-traffic areas that are easy to get to. 

“Eight to 10 years ago, what we used to be up against is [being put] in back alleys and saying, ‘This is where you can be,’” Winters explained. “That’s difficult when you’re already dealing with the stigma of cannabis.”

While malls now are signaling more openness to dispensaries—especially as they try to fill empty storefronts—a lot of today’s legislation is predicated on how states approached the medical market, Frank Perullo, chief strategy officer of Ascend Wellness Holdings (AWH), told us.
