California Bans Drone-Delivered Marijuana

The upcoming January 1 deadline has lawmakers in California working hard. They have until then to implement a system of regulation for legal marijuana sales. In its newly released licensing program, the Bureau of Cannabis Control includes some extremely interesting canna-business regulations. The legal cannabis market is about to create thousands of jobs, except perhaps for pot drivers. Only drivers with commercial licenses will find opportunity in California’s weed market. The new guidelines specifically mandate that “cannabis goods will be required to be transported in commercial vehicles or trailers.” The new laws do not stop there: Nobody will be able to deliver or transport weed via “aircraft, watercraft, rail, drones, human-powered vehicles, or unmanned vehicles.” To be clear, nobody is actually receiving pot via drone in California, at least not just yet. There has been plenty of debate about it, however. There is a strong likelihood that some have tested …

Because so much money and investment is at stake, everyone is waiting anxiously for what may happen under Trump’s administration. Cannabis is still illegal federally, even though most states have unbanned both medical and recreational marijuana. Effect of Trump Administration on Marijuana Industry Trump’s rhetoric on cannabis policy is confusing. His words suggest that he might support the right of states to make their own laws on pot, or at the very least, he may favor medical marijuana. However, he already has a history of reverting on campaign promises, such as Mexico paying for the border wall, which it can now pay later, if it ever does. There is no guarantee that Trump means what he says. Furthermore, Trump appointed Jeff Sessions as Attorney General. Sessions has opposing views on legalizing marijuana, and as a …
