Consecutive surveys over the past couple of years have revealed that attitudes toward cannabis have been steadily shifting toward the positive.

420 with CNW — Former Cannabis Regulators Want 10 Social-Equity Provisions Included in Marijuana Banking Bill

Most, if not all, state cannabis legalization bills contained social-equity provisions designed to reinvest in communities that had been disproportionately harmed by the war on drugs.

As the end of Congress approaches, policymakers, cannabis reform advocates and industry stakeholders are hoping to pass some kind of cannabis legislation before January, even if they have to compromise in some…

New York, which legalized recreational cannabis in early 2021, is set to start receiving applications for social equity retail licenses. State officials recently announced that the license application period will last from Aug. 25, 2022, to Sept. 26, 2022, with Albany TV station…
