This week we look at the NY Times coverage of the issues facing Oakland, California’s cannabis sector. And then we look at the latest coverage of the Democrats’ retreat, and finally, we turn our attention to New York State’s decision to let people with cannabis convictions get the first round of adult-use marijuana retailer licenses — ahead of the state’s existing medical cannabis businesses. 

We’ll be discussing all those 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----
