Cannabis is emerging from the shadows of prohibition. Every week, there are advancements in many fields related to cannabis. Cannabis Reports will be re-capping the weekly events of the cannabis community and industry, so that you can stay up-to-date on the latest developments.
US Supreme Court Hears Case Against Legal Cannabis Industry
The case of Nebraska and Oklahoma Vs. Colorado has been getting a lot of attention as it makes its way up through the judicial system. The case is based around Colorado’s recreational cannabis laws, with Nebraska and Oklahoma claiming that as neighbors, their law enforcement is unduly burdened by the “increased presence” of cannabis.
The case is not an effort to eliminate legal cannabis, but if Nebraska and Oklahoma prevail, state-regulated manufacturers and retailers would have to shut down.
Cannabis Reports Founder and CEO David Drake Gives Keynote Speech at The Direct Cannabis Network Seed Series Event
Our founder and CEO was invited by the Direct Cannabis Network Seed Series Events to speak to an invite-only crowd of cannabis industry members in San Francisco. Drake chose to emphasize the importance of us all working together to build a brighter future for cannabis. Other topics discussed were business ethics, investment strategies, and developing real products instead of pitch decks.
Leafly Terminates API Program
On February 29th, 2016, access to the Leafly API was officially terminated for many developers. Throughout the month of February, Cannabis Reports saw a huge increase in the number of requests for API keys. In fact, it was during discussions with our developer network that we discovered Leafly data is now unavailable to them.
We are disappointed that the Leafly API has been shut down, because at this critical stage in the cannabis movement, it hurts the whole community when any type of technology is suddenly denied to people trying to improve the cannabis space.
California Cannabis Business Expo: Happening Now in SF

Upcoming Cannabis Events
Stepping High is the first and longest running ganja festival in Jamaica and the Caribbean, located in West End, Negril. For eleven years the event was underground and was primarily advertised word-of-mouth.
Although, fraught with many restraints, the festival attracted scores of tourists from as far afield as Germany, Spain, Japan, and Ghana; neighbouring territories such as Trinidad and Tobago, and Bermuda among others attended the event, making it the largest ganja festival to date, in the region.
Want to take more ownership of your next cannabis experience? Interpening can help. They host a 2 hour event led by cannabis expert, Max Montrose, to better understand cannabis quality and effect on a user. Learn first hand how to assess bud quality, variety type, and more.
CannaTech March 2016 will include a full day Cannabis Summit with internationally recognized experts & industry leaders in the fields of medicine, science, patient care, regulation, investment and entrepreneurship.
The event will include the CannaPitch Final, in which select innovators will compete to win a grand prize. The Summit will facilitate exclusive networking opportunities and the exchange of cannabis innovation success stories.
What appeared to be a dream is now an outstanding reality: SPANNABIS, celebrating its eleventh anniversary, is considered to be the most important Spanish cannabis event of the year, hand in hand with the Expocannabis fair in Madrid & Spannabis in Málaga.
