420 with CNW – States Ask USDA and Congress to Extend Hemp Pilot Program

Although the 2014 hemp pilot program is set to expire on October 31, various state agriculture and hemp industry advocates have expressed concern that some states aren’t quite ready to run their own hemp programs. On Wednesday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (“USDA”), received letters from the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture (“NASDA”) and National Industrial Hemp Council (“NIHC”) asking it to extend the pilot hemp program. The groups say that while the USDA’s efforts at developing interim guidelines for the crop under the 2018 Farm Bill have been monumental, several states have been unable to create their…

420 with CNW – Arizona Court Rules in Favor of Marijuana Ballot Initiative

Cannabis legalization activists in Arizona can finally breathe easy after a judge dismissed a lawsuit claiming that their recreational cannabis legalization measure was unfit for the November ballot. Last month, Arizonans for Health and Public Safety filed a lawsuit arguing that the measure wasn't accurately described in the 100-word summary included in the petitions that voters signed. The group said that plenty of information was left out of the summary, denying voters all the information they needed to make an informed decision. On Friday, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge rejected the claims that the 100 word summary on the initiative…

420 with CNW – Vermont Could Be Close to Legalizing Marijuana

2020 looked to be the year for cannabis. Several states had plans to legalize cannabis via either voting on the November ballot or inclusion in the budget at the start of the year, but the coronavirus threw everything into disarray. The resultant health and economic crisis forced many of them to postpone legalizing cannabis to 2021 and beyond. However, some states were able to take the steps needed to initiate legalization despite the crisis. Vermont, for instance, seems poised to advance legal marijuana sales very soon. S.54, legislation that will legalize retail marijuana sales in Vermont beginning in 2022 is…

420 with CNW – Regulators in Massachusetts Asked to Revisit Marijuana Telehealth and Delivery

Back in 2016, voters in Massachusetts elected to legalize cannabis in the state. Nearly four years later, the legal landscape of Massachusetts' legal cannabis industry is still changing and shifting. Like in most states with a legal cannabis program, the industry is fairly young, and regulators are working together with stakeholders and consumers to create a regulatory framework that works for everyone. Last Monday, there was a public hearing held to collect input on the cannabis industry from medical marijuana patients, caregivers and aspiring entrepreneurs. The information will help the Cannabis Control Commission (“CCC”), which was tasked with regulating the…

The months after the coronavirus broke out were characterized by a severe decline in commerce.

420 with CNW – Senate Bill Seeks to Legalize and Tax Cannabis Like Tobacco

So far, 2020 has been pretty rough on drug reform initiatives. Marijuana legalization activists in states like Idaho and Florida have had to postpone their legalization activities after the coronavirus pandemic made signature collection almost impossible and kept lawmakers occupied with more urgent issues. However, the push for federal marijuana reform received a massive boost after a Democratic Senator filed a new bill to federally legalize marijuana in late July. Titled the ‘Substance Regulation and Safety Act,’ the legislation was sponsored by Senator Tina Smith. If passed, it would remove cannabis from the Controlled Substances Act and direct federal agencies…
