Update on Volkswagen Diesel Fraud Case

We filed an action in Butte County on May 17, 2018 with the intent of having a jury decide punitive damages. We would be the first party to bring the defeat device case to jury trial.  Peer reviewed studies proved thousands of people with lung diseases died from the fraud.

California Growers Association Sues the State

Posted by Fred Fletcher on Thursday, February 8, 2018, In : California Growers Association 
The California Growers Association has sued the State of California claiming the State has violated proposition 64 by not capping license numbers yet.  I find this suit humorous. First, the allegations are a mere 7 pages without much substance. Maybe an intern was paid a gram or two to draft this complaint in a Sacramento dorm room?  



The lawsuit seeks an order limiting licenses based on language in 64, the recreational proposition. If a judge agrees and only imposes a limit on recreational li...

The Business of Bubbles

Posted by Fred Fletcher on Friday, February 3, 2017, In : Business 
The first recorded financial bubble was the tulip bulb mania of 1637.  A crave over Europe drove the price of tulip bulbs to ridiculous heights. Some single bulbs sold for the modern day equivalent of millions of dollars. A traders' market resulted with speculators. Many people became wealthy overnight. But one day a single bulb failed to sale at the market, and the market collapsed in hours. Many lost everything. 



The same dynamics which created the Tulip bubble were responsible for the tech ...

California’s marijuana czar on upcoming marijuana regulation: ‘We will not fail’

Posted by DeLacy on Saturday, January 21, 2017, In : Marijuana Regulation 

“Our goal is to make this business legitimate,” Morris told the crowd. “What we’re working for is a legitimate marketplace.”


Under both the state’s medical marijuana regulations and Proposition 64, California must be ready to issue licenses by 2018 for thousands of businesses operating in California, home of America’s largest marijuana economy.

Proposition 64 will create 19 new license categories for recreational marijuana while establishing a 15 percent excise tax on retail sales...

Is forming a Non-profit Marijuana Business Stupid?

Posted by Fred Fletcher on Friday, November 25, 2016, In : Marijuana Non-profit 
Humboldt criminal lawyers are preparing for a career change with cannabis becoming legal in California. As a civil and business attorney for 12 years, it is alarming to see all the rookie mistakes being made. 



Some cultivators with sizable operations are being advised to form non-profits. This could be disastrous. The State of California is no longer playing dumb. The State realizes most marijuana businesses are for-profit. AB 266 and proposition 64 both recognize cannabis businesses are for-p...

Humboldt and Proposition 64

Posted by Fred Fletcher on Tuesday, October 25, 2016, In : Recreational 

The Times Standard has improved since editor Kimberly Wear resigned after our complaints she was promoting local scams to unsuspecting consumers. As reported in the Times Standard this week: 

"Should recreational marijuana (Proposition 64) become legal in California this November, Humboldt County officials state that regulations for this new market will likely mirror those already in place for medical cannabis businesses...But because of a July court agreement, the county will have to first co...

Proposition 64 the Adult Use of Marijuana Act

Posted by Fred Fletcher on Wednesday, September 14, 2016, In : Proposition 64 
The Adult Use of Marijuana Act is poised to pass this November in California. Prop 64 provides a comprehensive regulatory scheme for the cultivation, manufacturing and retail sale of cannabis. It also imposes taxes of $9.25 per ounce for flowers and $2.75 per ounce for leave. 

With the recent gun ban for 215 card holders recreational marijuana has a huge advantage. Consumers not cultivators will shape this new industry. Consumers shape every industry and the marijuana industry will be the same...

The (Green) Rush to Make Mistakes

Posted by Fred Fletcher on Friday, July 15, 2016, In : Commercial Cannabis 
It's no secret the cannabis industry is normalizing. Over the next 10 years the cannabis industry will be under the spotlight. Participants will be held to a higher standard than other industries. This new industry will have to prove itself. Decades of dysfunction and bad press from the black market has tainted the industry's reputation.

If you're interested in becoming a "legal" cannabis operation here's a couple of pointers to avoid disaster:

1) Be diligent but do not be in a rush. Many in th...
