The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) has reaffirmed its support for cannabis reform at the federal level and is calling on cannabis industry regulators to protect employee rights in the sector.

420 with CNW — New Paltz Farmers’ Market Draws Marijuana Enthusiasts

In an unprecedented move, New York made history by making marijuana legally available for purchase at a special farmers' market for adults only in Ulster County.

The event, held in New Paltz, was New York's first attempt at staging a…

420 with CNW — Gallup Poll Finds Highest Ever Support for Cannabis Legalization Among Republicans

A recent examination of survey data from Gallup shows that Republican backing for cannabis legalization has reached an unprecedented peak on a nationwide scale.

These insights, extracted from Gallup's 2022 survey data, illustrate a disparity of 28% in opinion on the matter…

420 with CNW — Court Order Halts NY Marijuana Dispensary Openings

A New York court has blocked the official launch of marijuana dispensaries in the state following a decision by a judge to halt the retail licensing process.

420 with CNW — Cannabis Industry Lobbying Increases as Looming Government Shutdown Leaves SAFE Banking in Balance

The U.S. marijuana sector persists in allocating substantial financial resources toward influential advocates, aiming to sway senators into endorsing marijuana reform. Nonetheless, this endeavor faces a potential impediment in the form of an imminent government shutdown, capable of profoundly disrupting the legislative schedule of Congress. During the first six months of 2023, marijuana enterprises and industry coalitions invested more than $2.4 million in lobbying efforts directed at the Senate, according to the latest disclosures in federal lobbying records. This falls short of the $2.9 million expended during the latter half of 2022, including the session following the general election, when…
