"Lawsuit Flurry Over Cannabis Labeling May Be Looming"
Sandra Edwards provided commentary in this article about the potential rise in Prop. 65 lawsuits in the cannabis industry. According to the article, Ms. Edwards said that in the traditional Prop. 65 world, retailers pass 60-day notices on to manufacturers to handle. There is often a purchase agreement in which the manufacturer indemnifies and even agrees to defend the retailer in a Prop. 65 case. She adds, "In this previously unregulated industry, are there indemnity agreements? Are there purchase orders? Probably less than in the traditional manufacturing model. This is a new world. There probably haven't been contracts in place."
