420 with CNW – Utah Moves to Hire Software Provider for Medical Marijuana Program

After passing a medical marijuana law in December 2018, Utah has now engaged high gear in moving towards implementing the program. The state is currently looking for a software provider who will design a two-part system that will, in effect, run the entire medical cannabis program.

420 with CNW – New York Cannabis Legalization Process Hits Major Snag

The process of legalizing recreational marijuana in New York has hit a major snag with the announcement that it isn’t included in the state budget for 2020. This means that it may now be harder to pass the legalization bill as a standalone bill. Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) has been pushing to have the bill included in the state budget for 2020, but it seems things haven’t gone his way. The major issue in the way of legalization appears to be disagreements regarding how the program will be implemented. For example, the legislators are sharply divided about the way in…

Here are some possible reasons for the cancellation of the vote.
