Hawaii Says It’s 1st State to Go Cashless for Cannabis Sales

HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii said Tuesday that it will be the first state to require marijuana sales to be handled without cash, saying it wanted to avoid robberies and other crimes targeting dispensaries.

Medical marijuana dispensaries in Hawaii won’t be allowed to accept cash beginning Oct. 1 and will require people to use a debit payment app instead. The app is already an option for marijuana transactions in six states, including California and Colorado.

Many marijuana businesses use cash because banks fear cannabis money could expose them to legal trouble from the U.S. government, which regulates banking and still bans marijuana.

The debit app called CanPay uses a Colorado-based credit union to facilitate transactions. Some mainland credit unions have opened accounts for cannabis businesses.

Hawaii was among the first states to legalize medical marijuana in 2000 but the state didn’t grant licenses to any dispensaries until last year. Maui Grown Therapies became the first to open last month after the state Department of Health gave it approval to begin sales.

During the Obama administration, the Justice Department issued guidelines to help banks avoid federal prosecution when dealing with cannabis businesses in states where the drug is legal.

But most banks don’t see those rules as a shield against charges that could include aiding drug trafficking. And they say the rules are difficult to follow, placing the burden on banks to determine if a cannabis business is operating within the law.

There is also uncertainty over how the Trump administration will react. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has said he wants to crack down on the legal marijuana industry.

Credit card companies like Visa and Mastercard say they won’t allow their cards to be used to buy cannabis or marijuana-related products.

Former Raider Now Selling Cannabis in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The display case just inside the front door is filled with the kind of stuff you would find at any sports memorabilia store. Frank Hawkins used to run interference for Marcus Allen back in the day, and there are plenty of signed footballs and pictures of No. 27 in silver and black.

There’s a picture of Hawkins with a former governor of Nevada, and a drawing of the late Raiders owner Al Davis with signatures from players on it. Next to them is a team photo from 1983, and a championship banner with the result of that season’s Super Bowl: Raiders 38, Redskins 9.

A few feet to the left is what is called the “smell room,” one of many signs that this is no memorabilia shop.

Everyone who enters is greeted by a smiling man with a question:

Medical or recreational?

Hawkins didn’t set out to be in the marijuana business in the town where he grew up and later became a city councilman. He resisted it at first, mostly because he says he doesn’t smoke the stuff.

Now he sits in a back office at Nevada Wellness Center just a few blocks from the glittering Las Vegas Strip, amid strains of cannabis with names like Devil’s Lettuce, Silver Back Gorilla and Black Afghan.

It’s all legal in a city where almost everything goes. But Hawkins — who opened the first medical marijuana dispensary in town — says it hasn’t been easy.

“We started out losing $50,000 a month,” Hawkins said. “We suffered for a long time.”

That changed on July 1 when Nevada became the fifth state to legalize recreational marijuana. Marijuana shops, which had been competing for a few thousand customers who had medical marijuana cards, could now sell to anyone — including tourists — over the age of 21.

That meant long lines on opening night at the shop Hawkins owns with two partners. It also meant a lot of cash in an industry where, as the sign in the lobby tells customers, business is all conducted in cash.

Things were slower on a recent summer afternoon, when only a few customers came in and headed to the smell room to get a whiff of what they might buy.

“Back when I was growing up marijuana was a bad word,” Hawkins says. “Now it’s a household name.”

And Hawkins thinks it can be beneficial to football retirees and current players as an alternative to opioid painkillers.

____

Though undersized at 5-foot-9 and 210 pounds, Hawkins ran for 5,333 yards in four years at the University of Nevada, Reno.

The Oakland Raiders drafted him in the 10th round in 1981. He stuck with the team and showed some promise, but the next year the Raiders were salivating over the chance to get the Heisman winner.

“The running backs coach said, ‘You guys ever hear of a guy named Marcus Allen?” Hawkins recalled.

Hawkins became, “a battering ram.” For the next six years, he led the way for Allen. He got some carries of his own, though, and scored two second quarter touchdowns in the AFC Championship game to break open a close game to put the then Los Angeles Raiders in the Super Bowl.

The Raiders would meet the Washington Redskins in Tampa Bay for the championship. They had Jim Plunkett and Allen in the backfield, but most importantly they had an attitude.

“We knew we were going to beat the snot out of them,” Hawkins recalled. “I told everybody at home, bet all you got because there’s no way in the world the Redskins can win.”

The Raiders wore black, and were so dominant the game would become known as “Black Sunday.” Allen ran wild behind Hawkins for 191 yards.

Hawkins ran three times for six yards and caught two passes for 20 more. He won a Super Bowl ring he only brings out on special occasions.

“I don’t want to lose it,” the 58-year-old said. “Somebody might say it was because of CTE.”

____

The Raiders of past gathered in July in wine country in Northern California, where the team trains. There were 110 former players and the talk was about old times and the resurgence of the team under Mark Davis, son of the late owner Al Davis.

There was also talk about various ailments, and the possibility some former players might have CTE or other brain damage.

Among those in attendance was Plunkett, who the next week would create a stir by telling the San Jose Mercury News that his body was broken down by all the hits he took with the Raiders and that at the age of 69, “My life sucks.”

“He looked good, but a little bit off balance and he lost some weight,” Hawkins said. “He did mention the fact he was in pain.”

So were many of the players at the reunion, one reason they were quite interested in the business Hawkins is in.

“Most of them wanted to know how they could get involved or get one in their city or state,” he said. “I told them any state you’re in I’d be more than happy to come and invest my time and money and get another store opened in their communities.”

Emails Indicate NFL Pushed Painkillers While Prohibiting Cannabis

____

Marijuana is still a punishable offense in the NFL, and players are subject to suspensions with a second positive test.

Pain pills, on the other hand, are readily available for almost any kind of injury. With the nation immersed in an opioid crisis, a 2011 study showed retired players misuse opioid pain medications at a rate four times that of the general population.

“You got a headache, they give you a pill,” Hawkins said. “You got shoulder pain, they give you pain pills. Whatever your problems are they gave you pills.”

Marijuana, a growing body of research indicates, can reduce pain more effectively than opioids and may be beneficial for concussions. It’s done not with the mind altering Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in the drug, but the cannabis compound Cannabidiol, or CBD.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was for years a hardliner on the use of cannabis but said last month he has reached out to the player’s union and is willing to fund a study to see if there are benefits.

Hawkins said he doesn’t need a study to be convinced. After a recent hip replacement surgery he had blood clots in his legs that his doctor was treating for six months with blood thinners.

A woman at his shop suggested he try capsules containing CBD that dissolve in water. After taking them for a few weeks, Hawkins said a body scan showed the blood clots had disappeared.

Hawkins estimated 20 percent of current players — some of whom have come into his shop — are using some form of cannabis to relieve pain and inflammation.

“The beautiful thing about the marijuana plant is they don’t have to smoke it to get in the system and they don’t have to get high,” he said. “They can use the CBD part of the plant and not the THC part of the plant. It can be put in soaps, eaten, in mints, you name it.”

Hawkins considers himself relatively healthy, thogh he’s quick to show off scars, including one from a tendon that separated in a 1987 game, eventually leading to his retirement.

He still loves football, though if he had a son he wouldn’t let him play. He’s not so enamored with the NFL, which he believes knew long ago the effects of hits to the head but did nothing about it.

“I understand the NFL from a business perspective,” he said. “I don’t like it from a personal perspective.”

Hawkins also understands people may view him differently because he sells marijuana. He says he’s OK with recreational use, though it’s the medical side he’s most excited about.

“Folks who have PTSD to trauma to football injury or have cancer it works on all of them,” he said. “And it’s certainly better than the opioids they give players.”

Nevada Rejects Alcohol Distributors’ Cannabis Appeal

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada’s marijuana regulators have rejected an appeal by a group of alcohol distributors who wanted to block the state from licensing cannabis businesses to transport marijuana from growers to retail stores.

The state Tax Commission voted unanimously Tuesday to uphold the Tax Department’s earlier decision to expand the licensing to those other than liquor distributors because they have been unable to keep up with demand.

Maine Dispensary’s Offer: Clean Up Trash, Get Free Cannabis

A medical marijuana dispensary in Maine offered do-gooders a chance to trade community service for free cannabis over the weekend—and it’s thinking about expanding the initiative statewide.

Gardiner-based Summit Medical Marijuana on Saturday offered cannabis to volunteers who cleaned up the community. Pick up a bagful of trash, the offer went, and trade it for a free gram of flower.

“Bring us back the full trash bag, and we give them a gift of cannabis,” Owner Dennis Meehan told local news station WCSH-6, adding that he got the idea after hearing about a similar event in Colorado. “They had a great response to this, so I was hoping to do the same thing in Maine.”

According to the company’s Facebook page, the event was a success. On Saturday afternoon, the dispensary posted an update showing a dumpster full of trash bags. “Mainers rock!!! You’re all amazing people!!!” the post said. “Anyone want to help do this statewide in 1 month or so?”

Giving out free bud may not be best for the company’s bottom line,  but Meehan says his number one goal is to make a better Maine.

“Something that caregivers do all across Maine that very few people know about is that they make huge sacrifices every week to help others live a better quality of life,” he told WCSH.

Some Nevada Cannabis Retailers ‘Running on Fumes’

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Most of Nevada’s recreational marijuana retailers are optimistic an emergency regulation that state officials are expected to approve will help keep them from running out of cannabis products, but some are “running on fumes,” an industry official said Tuesday.

The State Tax Commission is scheduled to vote Thursday on an emergency measure Gov. Brian Sandoval endorsed late last week in an effort to allow the state to issue cannabis distribution licenses currently banned by a court order.

Nevada Officials to Consider Emergency Rule on Cannabis Distribution

Nevada Tax Department spokeswoman Stephanie Klapstein said some of the 47 licensed retailers have reported twice as much business as they anticipated since recreational sales began July 1, and many fear their shelves soon will be empty.

Nevada Dispensary Association President Andrew Jolley said Tuesday most stores are “still doing OK in terms of supply.”

“But there are some that are obviously concerned given that we are 10 days into retail sales without being resupplied,” Jolley said. “I have heard of some dispensaries running on fumes, if you will.”

A legal battle over distribution of cannabis for recreational use threatens to jeopardize the flow of supplies from growers and manufacturers to retailers in the coming weeks.

The ballot measure voters approved in November legalizing the sales dictates that licensed alcohol wholesalers have the exclusive rights to cannabis distribution licenses for 18 months. But no alcohol wholesalers have completed the licensing process.

Nevada Cannabis Ruling May Delay July 1 Start Date

Before recreational sales began July 1, most dispensaries selling medical marijuana were authorized to serve as their own middleman and the bulk of them started stockpiling supplies months ago in an anticipation of high demand.

“Everybody that I know tried to augment their inventory as much as possible in the days and weeks leading up to July 1, but I’m not sure to what extent they were able to do that,” Jolley said Tuesday.

About a week before sales began, Sandoval’s chief of staff Michael Willden said state officials had been informed the dispensaries may have up to a 60-day supply of cannabis products.

“We are now informed that many have only days or weeks of product to be sold,” he said last week when the governor announced his endorsement of the emergency regulations to facilitate the issuing of distribution licenses to existing retailers.

“Current production in Clark County was set up for a snoozey medical market, not the 10-time increase in sales that retailers experience once they can sell to anyone 21 and up,” he said.

On Monday, the Sparks City Council became the latest local jurisdiction to approve an ordinance allowing for recreational cannabis sales. Currently, there are four licensed retailers in Reno, one in Pahrump, one in Mesquite, one in Laughlin, four in North Las Vegas and 36 in Las Vegas.

Nevada Officials to Consider Emergency Rule on Cannabis Distribution

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval last week authorized state regulators to consider an emergency regulation that would allow officials to determine whether the state has enough marijuana distributors to keep its retail shops supplied.

Sandoval’s approval came this past Thursday, after dispensaries across the state reported higher than expected demand for marijuana since recreational sales of the drug became legal in Nevada on Saturday. The Nevada Tax Commission is expected to take up the regulations Thursday of this week.

A judge’s order in an ongoing court fight between the state and the alcohol distributors does not allow cannabis dispensaries to transport marijuana from a cultivation facility to the store. Before recreational sales began last weekend, most dispensaries selling medical marijuana were authorized to serve as their own middleman.

About a week before sales began, Sandoval’s office had indicated he wouldn’t go for an emergency regulation for distribution. He reversed his stance after sales exceeded expectations.

“We previously were informed the dispensaries may have up to 60 day supplies of product,” Michael Willden, Sandoval’s chief of staff, said in an email. “We are now informed that many have only days or weeks of product to be sold.”

Nevada Cannabis Sales Exceed Stores’ Expectations

Those 21 and older with a valid ID can now buy up to an ounce of cannabis. The Nevada Department of Taxation has licensed 47 dispensaries to sell recreational marijuana.

The department on Thursday said the shops have recorded well over 40,000 retail transactions, and some of them sold more than double of what they had expected.

Carson City District Judge James Wilson last month ruled the regulation the commission adopted in May that could have opened distribution up to others was invalid.

Wilson said the Tax Commission engaged in “ad-hoc rulemaking” outside the legal process when it made a preliminary determination earlier this year that the liquor industry didn’t have enough interest in entering the cannaibs business to ensure enough distributors would seek applications to meet the anticipated high demand.

“The department has not determined whether exclusively licensing liquor wholesalers as temporary marijuana distributors will result in an insufficient number of licenses,” Wilson wrote.

Legal Cannabis in Nevada: What to Expect

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Cannabis facilities are ramping up their work for expected lines starting early Saturday in Las Vegas and other Nevada cities that will begin selling cannabis for adult use after voters approved it in November.

But it won’t be a free-for-all in the place where many tourists think anything goes. Police say they have been preparing for months to enforce the law, putting a focus on keeping stoned drivers off the road but also cracking down on those who light up under the neon lights.

Nevada is marking the fastest turnaround from the ballot box to retail sales of any of the seven other states and the District of Columbia where cannabis is legal.

The Secret History of Cannabis at the World Series of Poker

Here’s a look at what’s expected from legal cannabis in Nevada:

Only in a private home, including yards and porches. While it may be legal to stroll down parts of the Las Vegas Strip with your favorite adult beverage, the same doesn’t apply to cannabis. It’s prohibited in casinos, bars, restaurants, parks, concerts and on U.S. property, from national forests to federally subsidized housing.

While anyone who is 21 with a valid ID can buy up to an ounce of cannabis or one-eighth of an ounce of edibles or concentrates, using it in public can get lead to a $600 ticket for a first offense.

Industry experts predict Nevada’s market will be the nation’s biggest, at least until California plans to begin recreational sales in January.

Nevada sales should eventually exceed those in Colorado, Oregon and Washington state because of the more than 42 million tourists who annually visit Las Vegas. Regulators anticipate 63 percent of customers will be tourists.

“I don’t think we’ve ever seen anything quite like what Nevada is going to look like just because of the sheer volume of tourism in the state,” said Nancy Whiteman, co-owner of the Colorado-based Wana Brands, which makes edible products.

However, it’s not clear how many people know cannabis is about to be legal. The law bans marijuana advertising on radio, TV or any other medium where 30 percent of the audience is reasonably expected to be younger than 21.

State gambling regulators have directed casinos to abide by federal law, which outlaws the drug. That means tourists will have a hard time finding a place to use it legally despite being the biggest expected piece of the market.

It’s one reason Whiteman and others think edibles will be most popular with visitors, who can eat the goodies almost anywhere without attracting attention, including casino floors where cigarettes are allowed but cannabis consumption is not.

Legislation to establish marijuana clubs and other places to smoke cannabis failed this spring but will be revisited by lawmakers in 2019. State Sen. Tick Segerblom, a leader of the legalization push, anticipates worldwide advertising urging tourists to “come to Nevada and smoke pot — so we must provide a place to do so.”

The drug’s potency is much higher than stuff sold on the streets a couple of decades ago. Edibles are the biggest concern because the effects can sneak up on newbies, who may take too much without realizing they are slowly getting high.
