Lots of notable marijuana headlines on a day often associated with marijuana

The Huffington Post  has this piece explaining why today's date is considered special in the minds of many marijuana fans.  For me, what is special today is how many interesting marijuana policy and reform stories can be found in major (and not so major) media outlets.  Here is just a sample: 

  • From ABC News here, "Man's Jail Death Adds New Face to Debate on Marijuana Laws"

  • From the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation here, "Federal marijuana legislation to be introduced in spring 2017, Philpott says: Health minister in New York for UN talks to review global drug treaties"

  • From CBS News here, "Marijuana use and support for legal marijuana continue to climb"

  • From the Daily Caller here, "Support For Marijuana Legalization Soars To 56 Percent Nationally"

  • From a FOX affiliate in Denver here, "Marijuana money might have saved small Colorado town from 'abyss of nothingness'"

  • From the International Business Times here, "After Years Of Petitions And Protests, Marijuana Group DCMJ Says It's Meeting With Obama Staffers At The White House"

  • From the New York Times here, "Marijuana Legalization in New England Is Stalled by Opiate Crisis"

  • From Quartz here, "America's weed industry is going to be massive. Is Big Marijuana a good thing?"

  • From Rolling Stone here, "What Will Rescheduling Marijuana Mean for the Pot Industry?"

  • From the Sacramento Bee here, "On 4/20, marijuana legalization headed for California ballot"

  • From the Wall Street Journal here, "Mexican President Backs Legalizing Marijuana for Medical Use"

  • From Wired here, "A New Crop of Marijuana Geneticists Sets Out to Build Better Weed"
