Challenges that Cannabis Business Owners Face When (Trying) to Expand Nationally

April 12, 2017

You can't ship across state lines, it is nearly impossible to get federally-issued patent, and coordinating with other industry operators to develop licensing agreements is tough. Which is why there are only a handful of companies in the cannabis industry that have products in multiple states. So we were thrilled to invite the CEO, Lynn Honderd, of one of these companies: Mary's Medicinals.

This week's CannaPod review might surprise you. Ruby Red Eye tells us all about Goldleaf's newly released "Jotter" journals. There are two types: one for the grower and one for the patient. These luxury-looking planners get nothing but 5-star reviews where users can track their processes and effects using charts and graphs specifically made for each audience. 

Our news for the week covers: The first country to sell marijuana in pharmacies (Uruguay!), a filed patent for a cannabis-based eating disorder treatment and a task force within a subcommittee was called by Sessions to review cannabis laws. He says that he thinks we will all find that there is a lot more violence around the use of marijuana than we thing...but at CannaPod, we think he is the one in for a pretty big surprise.
