420 with CNW — Activists File Lawsuits Against Montana Governor over Cannabis Bill Veto

Last week, activists filed lawsuits against Montana Governor Greg Gianforte’s decision to veto legislation that shed light on how the state allocated taxes realized from the sale of recreational cannabis. One of the lawsuits was filed by the Montana Association of Counties while the other one was filed by the Montana Wildlife Federation and Wild Montana. The latter lawsuit requests that a Helena district court judge declare the governor’s veto of the measure void, unless and until both the secretary of state and Gov. Gianforte ask legislators their stand on whether to override the governor’s decision on the last day…

420 with CNW — Possible Legalization Reversal Has Thai Cannabis Advocates Worried

Thai Ganja TV has been a platform where marijuana enthusiasts have closely followed the remarkable transformation of the drug from being a banned substance to a legalized medicinal plant and eventually a recreational indulgence. However, a year after the decriminalization of cannabis in Thailand, the platform’s approximately 90,000 followers are now witnessing with bemusement the threats from rival politicians who seek to once again outlaw or strictly regulate open consumption and dispensaries. At the forefront of this debate is the soon-to-be prime minister, Pita Limjaroenrat, whose party MFP surprisingly emerged as the winner in the May 14, 2023, general elections.…

420 with CNW — Supreme Court Gives Florida AG Extra Fortnight to File Cannabis Challenge

The Florida attorney general has received two extra weeks to come up with a brief challenging the addition of a proposed cannabis legalization measure to the 2024 ballot. State Attorney General Ashley Moody’s office originally had until June 5, 2022, to provide the briefs, but it filed a motion to push the deadline. The office stated that it had limited staff and was currently dealing with multiple deadlines that made it unable to meet last Monday’s deadline for the cannabis ballot initiative challenge. The court motion met no challenges from the cannabis ballot campaign’s lawyers, and the state Supreme Court…

420 with CNW — D.C. Woman Wins Case Against Neighbor’s Marijuana Smoke

A judge in Washington, D.C., has issued a ruling requiring a man to cease smoking medical marijuana in his apartment because of complaints from a neighbor about the intrusive odor. Judge Ebony Scott determined that Josefa Ippolito-Shepherd had not proven her entitlement to damages but successfully argued that the smell constituted a private nuisance. Consequently, Scott ordered Thomas Cackett, who is licensed to purchase marijuana but lacks the authorization to disrupt others' enjoyment of their property, to discontinue his smoking habit. Additionally, Cackett is prohibited from smoking within a 25-foot radius of Ippolito-Shepherd's residence. This groundbreaking decision is expected to…

420 with CNW — Bruen Ruling Could Bring Good Tidings to Marijuana Movement

A 2022 ruling by the Supreme Court has radically changed a century-old U.S. gun law and significantly altered how courts assess gun laws. Judges in the New York Rifle and Pistol Association v. Bruen overturned a 100-year-old gun safety law and ruled that a New York law requiring licenses to conceal carry weapons in public was unconstitutional. The overturned New York gun law was strikingly similar to gun safety laws in seven other states, and the June 2022 ruling set a precedent for overturning these laws. In the aftermath of the Supreme Court ruling, judges in several states overturned gun…

420 with CNW — Louisiana Senate Signs Off on Cannabis Expungements Bill, Sends to Governor’s Desk

The Louisiana Senate has approved a measure to expunge certain cannabis-related offenses from people’s records and sent the bill to the governor. The new bill will provide a streamlined pipeline that allows people with first-time convictions for cannabis possession to expunge their records. Most pundits agree that the war on drugs was a failure that led to the incarceration of millions of Americans for relatively minor offenses, and decimated local communities while allowing the criminal institutions behind the illicit drug trade to flourish. Authorities were especially hard on people of color during the failed drug war and studies now show…
