This week we take a look at branding in the cannabis industry, as Mars Wrigley files suit against Terphogz, the maker of Zkittles. And then we turn our attention to a throwback tactic from the Governor of Iowa to delay her state’s medical cannabis program. And finally, we look at a local city council proposal in Washington, DC to set aside some new medical marijuana business licenses for people who were previously incarcerated for drug-related offenses. 

We’ll be discussing all these stories and more on the BEST cannabis podcast in the business...

As we like to say around here, “Everyone knows what happened in marijuana today, but you need to know what’s happening in Marijuana Tomorrow!” ----more----
