Welcome back to Higher Law, our weekly briefing on all things cannabis. I’m Cheryl Miller, reporting for Law.com from Sacramento, where a nearby marijuana-hawking billboard featuring a goat and a scantily clad woman has caused a bit of a stir. News site CALmatters asks if the giant ad violates California’s regs banning pot marketing to minors. I ask, is it a smart advertising ploy since we’re all talking about it?

This week, we consider U.S. Attorney General nominee William Barr’s support for the Cole memo (yes, the one Jeff Sessions rescinded) and whether the marijuana industry is feeling reassured by his remarks to the U.S. Senate. Plus, IP lawyers go to court over “Happy Apple.” And California has its final marijuana regs in the books.
