Trulieve, The Bellamy Brothers Back Adult-Use Cannabis Legalization Measure for Florida’s 2024 Ballot The Florida-based cannabis operator and country music act filed a proposed constitutional amendment Aug. 8 that would legalize cannabis for adults 21 and older. August 9, 2022 After past adult-use cannabis legalization initiatives in Florida failed to reach the ballot , Trulieve, one of the state’s largest medical cannabis operators, and The Bellamy Brothers, a country music act, have filed a new proposed constitutional amendment to legalize cannabis for adults 21 and older. The measure was filed Aug. 8 at the state Division of Elections, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel . The proposed constitutional amendment, the “Adult Personal Use of Marijuana,” would allow those 21 and older “to possess, purchase, or use marijuana products and marijuana services for non-medical personal consumption by smoking, ingestion, or otherwise,” the news outlet reported. Also included in the measure is language to allow “medical marijuana treatment centers, and other state licensed entities, to acquire, cultivate, process, manufacture, sell and distribute such products and accessories,” according to the Sun-Sentinel. The proposal could also remove vertical integration requirements that have governed the state’s medical cannabis industry and mandated that Florida’s “medical marijuana treatment centers” control the entire supply chain from cultivation to retail, the news outlet reported. Trulieve contributed $5 million to the effort, according to the Sun-Sentinel, and other multistate operators are expected to support the campaign, as well, to get the proposal before voters in the 2024 election. Musician David Bellamy is heading the Smart & Safe Florida political committee, the news outlet reported, and the initiative needs roughly 900,000 signatures to qualify for the ballot. “It’s all about improving access,” Trulieve CEO Kim Rivers told the Sun-Sentinel. “We came into this with a mission to provide access to high-quality products that are safe and have an appropriate value proposition to give folks control over their—in the original days—medical journey. I don’t think that changes here. I mean, in effect we are, at our core, about expanding the opportunity for access to safe, legal product, which is what this would allow us to continue to do.” If the measure lands on the 2024 ballot and ultimately wins voter approval, lawmakers would be able to enact laws to structure the adult-use industry, according to the Sun-Sentinel. “Any amendment in the state of Florida has to be very careful in terms of single subjects with this court and so I do know, speaking with the lawyers, that there was a very high focus on keeping this really focused around authorizing adult use and then allowing the Legislature to develop policy,” Rivers told the news outlet. Florida voters approved a constitutional amendment in 2016 to legalize medical cannabis in the state, and roughly 800,000 patients are enrolled in the program, the Sun-Sentinel reported. The Florida Supreme Court rejected two previous adult-use cannabis legalization initiatives last year, according to the news outlet. One, supported by the Make it Legal committee, was rejected in April 2021 after the court ruled that the proposal could mislead voters, the Sun-Sentinel reported. The other, backed by Sensible Florida, would have regulated cannabis similar to alcohol, but the court ruled in a 5-2 decision in June 2021 that that ballot summary also had the potential to mislead voters, according to the news outlet. Rivers told the Sun-Sentinel that attorneys have analyzed the Florida Supreme Court’s rulings while drafting the latest adult-use cannabis legalization initiative. Trulieve has also contributed $250,000 to Sensible Florida, which filed a new adult-use measure for the 2024 ballot that has so far amassed less than 23,000 signatures, the Sun-Sentinel reported. Maine officials announced Monday the launch of a new program to reimburse municipalities that host cannabis businesses. The Office of Cannabis Policy (OCP), a division of the Maine Department of Administrative and Financial Services (DAFS), is offering cities and towns up to $20,000 to cover the costs associated with opting in to the state’s adult-use cannabis program. The OCP launched an online portal Aug. 8 to accept submissions from municipalities seeking reimbursement. The move stems from a law passed during Maine’s 2022 legislative session that mandates that cities and towns that have opted in to the adult-use cannabis market will be eligible for the reimbursement of qualifying expenses. Qualifying expenses must have occurred within the past three years, according to the press release, and must be directly associated with a municipality’s process of opting in to Maine’s adult-use cannabis market. These expenses may include attorneys’ fees, costs associated with drafting cannabis ordinances and fees related to providing notice of public meetings. The funds for reimbursement will come from the Adult-Use Cannabis Public Health and Safety and Municipal Opt-In Fund, which houses the excise and sales tax revenues generated by adult-use cannabis sales. “Maine’s launch of the Adult Use Cannabis Program has been strong,” OCP Director Erik Gundersen said in a public statement. “But the benefits are still only being realized by about 7% of Maine’s cities and towns. From a recent report commissioned by the OCP, we know that the presence of adult use retail stores and other facilities is the most responsible way to continue to eradicate the illicit market, while driving down negative public health and safety impacts.” The form for reimbursement requests and additional information on the program can be found here . BOULDER, Colo. (August 8, 2022) – PRESS RELEASE – Wana Brands , one of North America’s top cannabis-infused brands, and the Wana Brands Foundation, an organization working to enhance the world by supporting a wide variety of nonprofits in Wana’s communities, have partnered with the League of Women Voters to bring voter registration drives to cannabis dispensaries across the United States as part of the 2nd annual Wana Brands Summer of Quick tour . The Summer of Quick tour is making more than 50 stops across the country through the summer and leading up to the midterm elections on Tues., Nov. 8. The Wana Wanderer is visiting dispensaries to offer education about voter registration status and how to register to vote. At select stops on the tour, local League of Women Voters representatives will be on hand to register voters and provide voter and election information. Information on how to register to vote, verify voter registration and find out what’s on the ballot can be found at Vote411.org/wana . The Wana Brands Foundation has donated $25,000 to support the League of Women Voters Education Fund, which educates voters on elections and registration information. “Voting is one of the most powerful tools that we have as Americans. Wana Brands and The Wana Brands Foundation consider this partnership with the League of Women Voters an essential initiative leading up to this year’s critical midterm elections,” said Nancy Whiteman, CEO of Wana Brands. “Through this voter registration effort, we aim to ensure that anyone who has the right to vote knows how to get registered and has the ability to fulfill this civic duty. One of the most powerful things we can do for our communities is to register to vote and educate ourselves on the issues.” Despite pandemic concerns, the 2020 U.S. election saw the highest voter turnout of the 21st century, with 66.8% of citizens aged 18 and older voting, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. However, the average voter turnout during midterm elections—such as this year’s upcoming election—typically hovers around 40% of eligible voters. Leading up to elections, all voters—particularly younger voters such as Generation Z—need trustworthy information about how to register and vote. According to CIRCLE at Tufts University , 34% of young people ages 18-29 said they did not know if their state offered online voter registration going into the 2020 election, suggesting massive untapped potential to broaden its use. “The upcoming midterm elections could be among the most pivotal in modern history, with many important issues on the line for our communities and the future of our families,” said Virginia Kase Solomon, CEO of the League of Women Voters. “Everyone deserves to have their voice heard. Partnering with Wana Brands can help us reach new and first-time voters in the cannabis community, drive voter registration, and share helpful information on local and national ballot initiatives.” View the Summer of Quick tour schedule on the Wana Brands website , with local stops ranging from dispensary events to festivals and athletic events. The Wana Wanderer will make stops in Colorado, Massachusetts, Oregon, Nevada and Michigan. Wana’s Quick Fast-Acting Gummies come in unique flavors such as Strawberry Margarita, Peach Bellini, Island Punch, Appletini and Cosmopolitan. Summer of Quick tour stops will offer refreshments, swag, outdoor games, and exclusive discounts on Wana Quick products.
