Welcome back to Higher Law, our weekly briefing on all things cannabis. I’m Cheryl Miller, reporting for Law.com from Sacramento, where we’re in the thick of state budget negotiations.

This week we’re looking at: California’s top cannabis enforcement priorities • The latest filing in a cannabis tax petition at the Supreme Court • Canopy Growth’s name-dropping of Merrick Garland in an SEC filing • A cannabis SPAC’s plan to raise $125 million in an IPO
