Welcome back to Higher Law, our weekly briefing on all things cannabis. I’m Cheryl Miller, reporting for Law.com from Sacramento. Weren’t you all supposed to be on vacation last week for the Fourth of July holiday? It doesn’t seem like you were given all the marijuana-related news happening.

This week we’ve got a recap of the brief bipartisan agreement on marijuana laws at a congressional hearing. Plus, the Ninth Circuit dived into the state-federal conflict on cannabis legality, again. A Canadian cannabis company is in trouble with federal regulators–and plaintiffs lawyers. And a Florida appellate court says no to the Sunshine State’s vertical integration model for marijuana.
