The President heralded the 'monumental' action as an overdue step in helping to reverse the 'historical inequities' caused by marijuana's classification as a Schedule 1 narcotic. The rescheduling of cannabis from a Schedule 1 to a Schedule 3 drug as part of the Controlled Substances Act took a significant step forward this week when President Joe Biden announced that his administration would be moving to reclassify marijuana under federal law. The announcement, which comes two weeks after the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) confirmed its decision to reschedule the plant, marks a ..read more

Mandated as a priority by legalization proponents and the governor’s office, the state is just beginning to address the judicial carnage created by the ill-fated “War on Drugs.” For most cannabis reform advocates, the main thrust of their collective efforts has centered on legalizing marijuana possession and sales for adults over 21. However, from the beginning of the legalization movement, criminal justice reform has also been a foundational tenet of ending the prohibition of weed in America. From the outset, when Colorado and Washington became the first two states to legalize recreational ..read more

According to numerous local and national media outlets, New York Gov ..read more

The case seeks to use an obscure state constitutional provision enabling the unlicensed sale of cannabis by individuals cultivating their own plants for personal consumption. The issue of home cultivation by individuals is one of the most challenging "grey areas" of legalizing cannabis for recreational use. Most marijuana legalization statutes or ballot initiatives include some form of legalized home growth for individuals over 21. However, those provisions rarely address how to handle the right to sell cannabis cultivated by those who choose to grow their own plants. Now, a new lawsuit bro ..read more

A new study reveals the powerful effects of using the entire cannabis sativa plant, including its aromatic terpenes, to develop innovative treatments for a variety of ailments.

If passed, the proposed bill would expedite the licensing process for prospective growers, potentially allowing cultivation to commence even before the end of 2024.

Although hemp is predominantly known for its many agricultural, health, and wellness products and uses, the lesser-known hemp-derived clothing market is poised to explode in the coming decade. One of the earliest uses for hemp was not for paper or medicine but as a versatile and comfortable clothing material. The first archaeological findings of hemp fabric, a testament to its enduring quality, date back to roughly 10,000 years ago in China, making hemp one of the world's oldest and most prized cultivated crops.  Hemp fabric is lightweight, allowing for more breathable clothes. Yet, it ..read more
