420 with CNW — Oklahoma Voters May Not Decide Fate of Cannabis Measure Despite Ample Signature Submission

Voters in Oklahoma may not get the chance to vote on cannabis legalization during the upcoming November ballot even though reform activists behind a cannabis legalization measure collected enough signatures.

420 with CNW — Marijuana Firms in Virginia Expand Facilities Despite Uncertainty Over Recreational Sales

Last year, legislators in Virginia approved a measure to legalize its commercial recreational cannabis market and launch it in 2024, which would make it the first of its kind in the South.
