Keep an eye out on news.

Every fareway in the state is carrying these now. Two brands, including climbing kites.
I've gotta think Fareway is pretty unhappy about it and imagine they could get in some ears of politicians about this (probably wishful thinking)

A lot of businesses are unhappy about it. It’s not just the retailers.

It’s classic R behavior. Strip something away, then act like you are doing everyone a solid by reinstating part of what was stripped away, fleecing everyone and lining your pockets along the way.

I keep thinking eventually Rs will overplay their hand. How can they be on the wrong side of so many 60-70% issues and still get votes. But their brainwashed cult refuses to walk away.

Also, if Fareway is selling these, hyvee isn’t far behind. They can’t not have something on the shelves that the competition has.

It is unclear if this is part of the earlier announcement of a suit by the H.E.M.P. Coalition (of which CK and Field Day do not appear among membership) or not.

Two Iowa companies are suing the state over its interpretation of a new law that restricts THC levels in adult beverages.

Climbing Kites, a Polk County beverage manufacturer, and Field Day Brewing Co., the Johnson County producer of the Day Dreamer line of cannabis sparkling water, are suing the Iowa Department of Health and Human Services in U.S. District Court.

PSA: If these lawsuits don't generate a stop in the new regs, you only have 11 days to snarf up local inventory. Unless of course you're good with $7 for a 2.5 mg beverage, soon to be 4 mg max.

Based on this language:

"Serving" means the size or portion customarily consumed per eating occasion, expressed in a common household measure as established in table 2 of 21 CFR 101.12 (as amended through May 27, 2016). If a solid consumable hemp product is packaged in a manner that includes more than a single serving, each serving must be clearly identified and severable from the other servings in the container. If a liquid consumable hemp product is packaged in a manner that includes more than a single serving, the number of servings must be conspicuously labeled. Liquid consumable hemp products shall be packaged in a container that holds a minimum of 12 fluid ounces.


I don't think this holds true anymore. There can be more than one serving per container, it just has to be clearly labeled. Just have to have a MINIMUM of 12 ounces, but can have more than 1 serving. So the Berry Climbing Kits product (my personal favorite) would just need to be labeled as 2.5 servings and it would still be legal.

Not surprisingly the Iowa gov link is dead. They do not give a #@!* about public comment.



no do they not. I have sent comms to governors office I don't know how many times and have never heard back. At least when i send stuff to Ernst and Grassley i get responses even if they are ****** responses.

As someone who is generally on the right side of the political spectrum I fully acknowledge that the new regulations set to take effect on July 1 are a stupid, unnecessary overreach which are trying to correct a problem that doesn't exist. It is nothing more than fun hater BS that could potentially destroy a legitimately harmless industry. So dumb. I hope the lawsuits are successful.

The State offered an interpretation that says "NO". Hence, the lawsuit(s).

I've not seen it in any of the Cedar Rapids but Local Craft Cellar has pallets of Climbing Kites products on the floor.

Next Friday will be the big day. I believe odds are very strong that this joke "law" will be blocked from being enacted on July 1. (The judge was appointed to the federal court in 2012 ;) )

A second group has indeed filed suit against the state, including another Seltzered drink supplier. A court ruing should be expected TODAY.

The eight other companies that are now suing the state are also Iowa-based businesses, and they include HW Premium CBD of Urbandale; American Shaman, which has retail locations in Altoona, West Des Moines and Indianola; Greene Goods Market and Greenhouses of Jefferson; Your CBD Store, which is a national franchise with a West Des Moines store; Beyond CBD of Des Moines; Campbell’s Nutrition Centers of Des Moines; Sky High of Cedar Falls; and Icanna of Iowa.
