As President Donald Trump’s administration made comments this week that alluded to promises to crack down on adult-use marijuana, CalCann Holdings emerged as a strong voice.
House Press Secretary Sean Spicer announced on Thursday that there has been a definite line drawn in the sand now in terms of medical vs. adult-use/recreational marijuana. Spicer in his comments cited that there could be a danger in “encouraging people” through the legalization of marijuana for recreational use, citing the spread of opioid addiction across the country as a justification.
While there doesn’t seem to be any threat of action taken against states who have legalized medical marijuana, Spicer’s comments served as a partial answer to the question of how the feds would tackle the issue of recreational marijuana legalization once Trump’s administration took the reins.
In light of this news, journalists consulted some of the legal marijuana industry’s leaders to weigh in on Spicer’s comments, including Aaron Herzberg, partner of CalCann Holdings. In Inc., Herzberg said that he didn’t “think it’s realistic for Trump to wage an all-out war against recreational marijuana.” He characterized the actions of Trump and his cabinet as “saber-rattling”, citing the fact that eight states now allow for recreational marijuana and the fact that Colorado already generates $200 million in annual revenue from recreational marijuana.
CalCann Holdings is a leader in the legal marijuana industry in California, its partners Aaron Herzberg and Chris Francy being large players in the events leading up to and following the passing of Proposition 64.
