Welcome back to Higher Law, our weekly briefing on all things cannabis. I’m Cheryl Miller, reporting for Law.com from Sacramento. New York began accepting applications for recreational dispensary licenses today. So Empire State lawyers, what are you seeing and hearing about the process? Let me know.

This week we’re looking at:

  • How New Jersey courts might treat marijuana-impairment testimony.
  • One lawyer’s take on cannabis appellations.
  • An SEC complaint targeting a cannabis company promoter.
  • The International Cannabis Bar Association’s new executive committee.
