420 with CNW – Florida AG Opposes One Recreational Marijuana Ballot Initiative

There are three initiatives aimed at putting a recreational ballot measure on the 2020 ballot in Florida, but one of those initiatives has been singled out by the Attorney General as being too long and should therefore be rejected by the Supreme Court of Florida.

420 with CNW – Former FDA Boss Hints Marijuana Legalization Is Necessary for Public Health Reasons

The former head of the FDA has said that the conflict between the federal and state marijuana laws has created regulatory gaps which have given chance to tainted or substandard products to enter the market, resulting in the fatal lung injuries that have been reported recently.

In a series of tweets, Scott Gottlieb said that the permissive marijuana laws of different U.S. states cause him a lot of worry since they give adults unfettered access to recreational marijuana and yet there are no federal regulations to oversee the…

In their reply to a letter written by Sen.
