Decades ago before modern marijuana reforms became mainstream, the stories and headlines linked below might have seemed like a midsummer night's dream. But now, reform stories are common every time of the year, and these midsummer stories are almost par for the course. But they still caught my eye and seemed blog-worthy for various reasons:
From the AP, "High profile: Cannabis chemical delta-8 gains fans, scrutiny"
From Courthouse News Service, "You can smoke it but you can’t study it: Cannabis researchers get creative"
From Forbes, "Billionaire Charles Koch On Why Cannabis Should Be Legal"
From High Times, "Study Finds Cannabis Use Not Related to Loss of Motivation"
From Marijuana Moment, "House Approves Marijuana Banking, Employment And D.C. Sales Provisions In Large-Scale Spending Bill"
From MJBiz Daily, "Boom or bust? Marijuana execs see more sales gains as COVID-19 lockdowns ease"
From MJBix Daily, "Proposed tax rates in Schumer’s marijuana reform bill elicit ‘sticker shock’"
From the New York Post, "More than 3,500 marijuana-related warrants tossed by Brooklyn DA"
From the Washington Post, "Medical marijuana saved me and other veterans. Why does the military punish us for it?"
