Welcome back to Higher Law, our weekly briefing on all things cannabis. I’m Cheryl Miller, reporting for Law.com from Sacramento. 

This week we’re looking at:

  • A local-state preemption debate over cannabis enforcement.
  • The 9th Circuit’s rejection of a cannabis business’s RICO claims.
  • Two new cannabis regulators.
  • A stinky pot dispute and new state-level cannabis efforts.
