AG Camacho Announces Roundtable on Common Issues in Launching Cannabis Industry

AG Leevin T. Camacho moderates a panel of cannabis experts last week that was hosted by the Attorney General Alliance.

June 20, 2022- Tamuning, Guam- Attorney General Leevin T. Camacho is working with the Attorney General Alliance (AGA) Cannabis Project to host a roundtable with experts in the cannabis regulation field to discuss common issues faced by jurisdictions during the launch of their cannabis industries.

Other jurisdictions and communities are tracking Guam’s progress and are aware that our Cannabis Control Board Rules and Regulations lapsed into effect on May 29, 2022 and that the application period opens August 29, 2022.

“Whether we support or oppose it, cannabis is now legal in Guam,” said Attorney General Camacho. “With the launch of the application period in just two months, our government needs to be better prepared to support new businesses and collect revenue while also combating illegal activity and protecting consumers, especially our children,” he added.

Last week, Attorney General Camacho moderated a panel of cannabis experts who discussed new policy debates in the cannabis industry such as Delta-8 THC, social equity movements, and the status of changes to federal law that will impact the industry. The panel was hosted by the Attorney General Alliance (AGA), a bipartisan group that includes 46 states and territories.

“Many of Guam’s concerns and issues are shared by other jurisdictions, including in areas of banking, vertical integration, and inventory tracking,” said AG Camacho, “as attorney general, you have to be a problem solver, and this roundtable is a part of our continued efforts to help identify possible solutions to these issues.”

The roundtable has tentatively been set for July 8, 2022. Additional details will follow.
