420 with CNW – Poll Finds That Most Americans Regard Cannabis Legalization Policies as Successful

Perception has arguably been one of marijuana's biggest foes. Ever since it was prohibited decades ago, there has been a negative perception to it. Federally, cannabis is still classified as a controlled substance, and that has also shaped its image in the eyes of the public. However, in the recent years, the plant has become more accepted, culminating in a number of states launching medical and recreational cannabis programs to great success. A recent poll by YouGov found that a large majority of the American public believes that recreational cannabis legalization has been a success. YouGov surveyed more than 27,000…

420 with CNW – Lebanon Legalizes Medical Cannabis Amid Coronavirus Economic Hardships

420 with CNW – Zoom Inadequate for the Complexities of Marijuana Legalization, Says Gov. Cuomo

Legalizing marijuana this year had been one of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's top priorities.

420 with CNW – Marijuana Arrests Among Blacks in Illinois Seven Times Higher Than Whites, Research Finds

One of the most prominent arguments against the war on drugs, and marijuana specifically, has been the impact it has had on specific communities. And most states that eventually legalized marijuana have been using some of the tax revenue earned from cannabis sales to help remedy this.

According to the study, although marijuana arrests have declined after Illinois decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana in 2016, prior…
