420 with CNW — DOJ Claims Appeals Court Wrongfully Ruled Ban on Cannabis Users’ Gun Rights as Unconstitutional

The Department of Justice (DOJ) is requesting a favorable result in related litigation and has alerted a federal court that it thinks a different court's decision in a case involving cannabis and gun rights was made erroneously. The federal government wrote a one-page letter to the judges presiding over the Eleventh Circuit contesting a recent ruling by the Fifth Circuit Court, where it was concluded that the law forbidding individuals who consume cannabis from purchasing or owning firearms violates the Constitution. The DOJ is vigorously appealing this judgment because it is relevant to litigation pending before the Eleventh Circuit. Although…

420 with CNW — Marijuana Smell Sparks Smoking-in-Public Debate

As more states have legalized recreational cannabis use for adults aged 21 year and older, a debate on public consumption and marijuana’s distinct smell has grown increasingly fierce. Most, if not all states with recreational and medical cannabis programs have outlawed public consumption and require that eligible adults consume and cultivate cannabis in private residences away from the public eye. However, marijuana smoke is a strong, pungent scent that can travel, especially when cannabis users are living in close quarters with other people, such as in apartments. This means that individuals abiding by state law and consuming cannabis in private…
