420 with CNW — US Conservative States Warm Up to Medical Marijuana

A wave of cannabis reform is sweeping across America, and the country's most conservative states are taking notice.

420 with CNW — Colorado Governor Enacts Bill Allowing Students Access to Medical Cannabis

Last week, Colorado Governor Jared Polis signed a bill to expand access to medical cannabis for students in schools. The state’s current law allows principals the discretion to establish policies that prevent or allow schools to administer and store marijuana-based medicines. Under the new legislation, this discretion is eliminated, which means that school boards will establish policies on how to store marijuana medicines while also allowing their personnel to volunteer to administer it to students who need it as well as possess it. The governor’s office stated that Polis is also planning to sign another legislation that was recently advanced…

420 with CNW — Limited Medical Cannabis Compromise Bill Sent to Tennessee Governor’s Desk

The state of Tennessee is one step closer to legalizing medical cannabis after the legislature sent a limited medical cannabis bill to the governor's desk.

The limited compromise bill would expand the list of qualifying conditions from only intractable epilepsy to include cancer, ALS, Alzheimer's disease, sickle cell disease, inflammatory bowel…

420 with CNW — Maryland Court Declares Cannabis Smell Insufficient as Justification for Police Stops, Searches

An appeals court in Maryland has ruled that law enforcement officers aren’t allowed to stop individuals based on the smell of cannabis alone.
