2024 Sets the Stage for Historic Cannabis Reform



In this election year, there are significant implications surrounding cannabis. The decisions made in 2024 may represent the biggest reform in federal cannabis policy in the past 40 years.


Here’s a timeline of notable moments that may impact cannabis this year:



– October 6, 2022 — President Joe Biden issues a statement . He said, “No one should be in jail for using or possessing marijuana.” He announced he would pardon all prior federal offenses for simple possession of marijuana. The President urged all state governments to follow this action. He also mentioned reviewing cannabis’ Schedule I designation..



– Aug. 29, 2023 — A letter from the Department of Health and Human Services to Anne Milgram, of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) leaks to Bloomberg. The letter calls for rescheduling cannabis as a Schedule III drug under the Controlled Substances Act.



– Sep. 13, 2023 — A report by the Congressional Research Service (CRS) finds the DEA will “likely” reschedule marijuana as it would be improbable for them to contradict the HHS recommendation.



– Dec. 22, 2023 — President Biden issues a proclamation that further pardons people who have certain cannabis-related convictions under federal law and also grants clemency to 11 individuals who the President said are serving disproportionately long sentences for nonviolent drug offenses.



– Jan. 4, 2024 — The DEA confirms it is reviewing the cannabis rescheduling recommendation.



– Jan. 12, 2024 — The U.S. government releases documents related to its ongoing review of marijuana’s status under federal law. These documents provide the first official confirmation that health officials recommended the DEA reschedule cannabis. This officially confirms for the first time that health officials have recommended the DEA place cannabis in Schedule III of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA).

SMBs are the engine of the cannabis economy



The contractions of the cannabis industry created a realignment in the sector following the industry’s early explosive success.


Laura A. Bianchi, founding partner of Bianchi & Brandt, discussed the current market situation in a recent Trend Report. She stated, “We’ve been entrenched in the hyperactive cannabis M&A environment for many years. After the massive, unexpected pandemic bump and the crash of cannabis markets coast to coast, we’re now in The Great Correction.


Instead of blockbuster acquisitions, the focus of M&A activity is now on small and midsize businesses (SMBs).



Laura continues in the trend report, explaining “Savvy businesses are looking for mutually beneficial partnerships that allow them to maintain a foothold in the market to ride out this correction. Many of these smaller cannabis businesses are merging for basic survival. Some are finding that their new partnerships are helping them thrive in these conditions.
