420 with CNW — Nebraska Campaigners Start 2024 Medical Cannabis Legalization Drive

Activists in Nebraska have initiated a fundraising campaign to garner support for the inclusion of two medical cannabis legalization proposals on the state's 2024 ballot. The group, Nebraskans for Medical Cannabis (NMM), has already begun the circulation of petitions and claims to have satisfied signature requirements in two counties by the end of last month. The recent launch event held in Lincoln aimed to address a significant hurdle faced last year: the loss of vital funding after a major donor's tragic death in a plane crash. This is the third attempt by NMM to present the reform proposal to voters,…

420 with CNW — Government Analysis Foresees Cannabis Scheduling Change by DEA

A recent government analysis predicts that the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will most likely reschedule marijuana following the recommendation of federal health authorities. The DEA affirmed to Congress in 2020 that it is required by law to give the Department of Health and Human Services (HSS) precedence on matters of science and health in a report released on Sept. 13 by the Congressional Research Service (CRS), a think tank for public policy run by the federal government. Based on the analysis, it is unlikely that the federal drug policy will be advanced in a way that may be revolutionary. This…

420 with CNW — Brazilian Study Suggests Cannabis Helps Against Autism

With emerging research showing that cannabis holds promise for various health conditions, it comes as no surprise that some scientists have started conducting research on the drug’s usefulness in managing autism. Global researchers estimate that about 1% of the total population worldwide suffer from autism. However, few patients receive diagnoses, with many going about their daily lives undiagnosed. Now new research by a team of scientists in Brazil has made a new discovery concerning the use of cannabis extracts in managing autism. This isn’t the first study to evaluate this link, as a number of separate studies have also noted…

420 with CNW — Minnesota Supreme Court Says Cannabis Smell Insufficient Justification for Searching Vehicles

The Minnesota Supreme Court has established that the mere presence of a cannabis scent does not, by itself, provide sufficient grounds for law enforcement officers to conduct a vehicle search. The ruling stemmed from an incident that occurred during a traffic stop in Meeker County in 2021 when Adam Torgerson found himself being pulled over by Litchfield police for excessive auxiliary lights on his car’s grill. During the stop, one of the officers claimed that they could detect the scent of marijuana emanating from the open car window. Torgerson, accompanied by his wife and a child, vehemently denied the presence…

420 with CNW — California Lawmakers Send Cannabis Cafe Bill to Governor for Enactment

The California Assembly has approved a bill to legalize marijuana cafes in the state; the body sent the bill to Governor Gavin Newsom’s desk for his signature. Bill AB 374 would allow recreational cannabis dispensaries to provide customers with noncannabis drinks and foods as long as they receive approval from local authorities. Senate lawmakers received the measure from assemblymembers, made slight amendments, and approved it in a 33 to 3 vote nearly one week ago before sending it back to the assembly for a concurrence vote. The assembly voted in favor of the amended cannabis cafe bill just a few…

420 with CNW — Twist of Fate? DEA Now Tasked with Steering Marijuana Rescheduling

The United States is on the brink of a groundbreaking shift in its approach to marijuana policy. However, a significant obstacle stands in the way of this reform: the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Recognizing marijuana’s medical value, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services ( HHS) recommended reclassifying marijuana as a Schedule III controlled substance in response to President Joe Biden's call for a comprehensive review of marijuana scheduling last year. This pivotal moment in federal government policy places the key marijuana decision in the hands of the DEA, an agency historically associated with the country's war on drugs.…

420 with CNW — Marijuana ETFs See Green as Hopes for Federal Marijuana-Policy Reform Rise

Cannabis Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) surged in value in September as positive federal action renewed investor interest in the cannabis industry. Shortly after the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommended that the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) reclassify cannabis to Schedule III from Schedule I and ease federal marijuana restrictions, marijuana-related ETFs began to soar as investors started investing in the cannabis industry. America’s state-legal cannabis sector is the fastest-growing sector in the nation, generating billions of dollars in yearly revenue. However, the industry has been consistently handicapped by federal regulation. Federal law still classifies cannabis as a Schedule I…

420 with CNW — Cannabis Rescheduling Recommendation Far Below Biden’s Campaign Promises, Advocates Say

Nearly two years after President Joe Biden took office, policy experts and drug-reform advocates aren’t happy with the Biden administration’s efforts to fulfill the campaign’s cannabis promises. Last month, the Biden administration recommended that the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) reclassify marijuana and asked federal drug officials to consider removing the decades-long restrictions on marijuana. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued the cannabis rescheduling recommendation to the DEA after President Biden sent a request to the HHS calling for a review of the rescheduling of marijuana as a Schedule I drug with no medical application. Schedule III…
