Welcome back to Higher Law, our weekly briefing on all things cannabis. I’m Cheryl Miller, reporting for Law.com from Sacramento. Happy Fourth of July—and first day of adult-use marijuana sales in Maryland, for those who celebrate.

This week we’re looking at:

  • Preparations for adult-use marijuana in Minnesota.
  • The FDA’s guidance for psychedelics trials.
  • Akin Gump’s lobbying work for Green Thumb Industries.
  • The launch of Maryland’s adult-use market.
