It's Payback Time As States Settle With Cannabis Producers
New Mexico Pays Settlement for Police Error

When Expo New Mexico demanded that Ultra Health remove cannabis from its trade show booth display, the Company filed a lawsuit to "preserve their free speech rights" in 2017.
The state ultimately decided to settle the lawsuit while paying the cannabis plaintiff in the case $69,600 and dropping its appeal which was previously being heard in the 10th U.S. Circuit of Appeals.
"Freedom of information and freedom of speech related to cannabis has clearly turned the corner when the States are now on the hook for any undue restrictions that damage cannabis operators' abilities to share information at state events." said Evan Horowitz, CEO of WeedClub, an international network of cannabis entrepreneurs.
When Police forced Ultra Health to remove their booth display and leave Expo New Mexico, the free speech rights of the exhibitor were trampled. Medical cannabis entrepreneurs are able to better protect free speech rights under the current State regulations as is seen in the now-settled case of Ultra Health LLC and Expo New Mexico. The judge's original ruling was that the state had violated the company's free speech rights.
