Activism

Veterans fighting for looser cannabis laws took to the Capitol today for an impromptu Lobby Day as the discussion about the medical benefits of the plant loom in the general assembly.

Amid signs of a renewed push this year to legalize recreational pot in New York state, activists in the city have formed a new organization to lay the groundwork for an orderly, inclusive marketplace -- and avoid some of the problems that have beset legalization in other regions.

Hundreds of medical marijuana supporters descended on Oklahoma’s state Capitol on Thursday to warn lawmakers not to infringe on their legal right to grow, consume and sell cannabis.

"I see a lot of veterans that are addicted to opioids and I know that they would probably not be taking so many pills if they had another alternative."

Military veterans are using marijuana to treat chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety and depression, among other ailments, according to recently released survey data.

A group that hopes to legalize recreational marijuana in North Dakota has submitted language for its proposed statutory initiated measure to the secretary of state for approval.
