    Pop quiz, what state offers the greatest protections for employees looking to use cannabis in their off-time? Well if you don’t know this one, it’s for good reason, because the correct answer only recently changed to Maine.

      Policing Marijuana DUIs and the Trouble it Poses to Law Enforcement

      The legalization of recreational marijuana in California has spurred law enforcement agencies throughout the state to start implementing tougher DUI laws.

        The Fight for Market Access

        The cannabis market in California has continued to evolve in the past few months, as the state tries to switch away from its gray market roots and into a fully above-board system.

          Recreational Marijuana Sales are High in Nevada but not High Enough for Investors

          Industry research suggests that the legal cannabis industry will grow exponentially in the US.

            When the State Wants Cannabis but the City Doesn’t

            It should come as no surprise that even in states where cannabis has been fully legalized, there are local governments who oppose the notion. After all, the prohibition era ended in 1933, but there are still more than 200 ‘dry’ counties in the U.S. that do as much as their state will allow to prohibit […]

                An announcement from White House press secretary Sean Spicer has cannabis industry advocates concerned for the future of recreational use.

                  Vermont Legalizes Cannabis

                  The State Senate of Vermont recently passed a bill legalizing recreational cannabis use in the state, and Governor Phil Scott signed the bill into law, marking a national first. All other states which have legalized recreational cannabis have done so via voter referendum, where the lawmakers have been forced to enact legalization passed by the […]


                    The Fight for Legal Representation

                    The West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals may be about to correct a misstep in the state’s medical marijuana laws, but it all depends on the comments the court receives from the public. The court is considering an amendment to the state’s Rules of Professional Conduct for attorneys, that would allow them to advise medical […]
