Rounding up some recent marijuana news and reform notes as the calendar turns
The Memorial Day weekend serves as the unofficial start to summer and today is the official start of June, and so I figured it was a good time to catch up with a bunch of recent notable stories from major outlets that I have not found time to blog about recently. So here goes:
From CNBC, "Uber and the delivery war could be headed to cannabis dispensaries"
From Forbes, "Republican Voter Suppression Is Canceling Marijuana Legalization"
From Pew Research Center, "Religious Americans are less likely to endorse legal marijuana for recreational use"
From Politico, "Why Covid rules on liquor, pot and telemedicine might last past the pandemic"
From the New York Times, "Why the Pandemic Was a Breakout Moment for the Cannabis Industry"
From the New York Times, "Yes, Pot Is Legal. But It’s Also in Short Supply."
From NPR, "After 50 Years, U.S. Opens The Door To More Cannabis Crops For Scientists"
From the Wall Street Journal, "Positive Marijuana Tests Are Up Among U.S. Workers"
Also, the always great Marijuana Moment has these two notable recent op-eds:
