420 with CNW — As States Legalize Cannabis, Federal Trafficking Cases Dwindle

A recent analysis conducted by the U.S. Sentencing Commission (“USSC”) has observed a decline in the number of federal cannabis trafficking cases from last year as more states legalize cannabis.

420 with CNW — Medical Marijuana Activists in Pennsylvania See Workers’ Comp. Decision as a Win

Thirty-six states in America have legalized cannabis for medical use, and an estimated 3.6 million individuals are registered as medical cannabis patients in the United States. However, federal law classifies cannabis as a Schedule I controlled substance with no accepted medical use; cannabis is ranked right alongside hard drugs such as cocaine and heroin.
