420 with CNW — Arizona Court Says Cannabis Sales Convictions Qualify for Expungement

The Court of Appeals in Arizona State has ruled that some people who have convictions for selling marijuana can apply to have those convictions expunged.

Drugs under this schedule are said to have a high potential for abuse and no accepted medical use. The legislation also highlights that voters in Nevada have approved measures at the ballot to legalize…

420 with CNW — US Leaders Draw Attention to Cannabis Banking Bill Provision

A provision in the SAFE Banking measure has drawn criticism from several leaders and groups, including Democratic Senator Jack Reed, conservative advocacy associations and senior federal officials. The parties argue that the provision may unintentionally restrict the capacity of regulators to take action against those abusing financial services. Reed first raised his concerns about Section 10 of the SAFE Banking Act this month in a session held by the Senate Banking Committee to discuss the bill. The senator stated that the provision’s wording will make it more challenging for federal authorities to issue a warning regarding any customer relationships that…
