Activism

As New Jersey inches toward legalizing adult-use weed, a state university has launched a group aimed at helping lawmakers and towns grapple with the implications of marijuana legalization.

Maryland has banned infused food from its medical cannabis program, but nutritionists and chefs like the Parkses have partnered with dispensaries around the state to hold classes demonstrating how to make edibles at home.

The Texas Legislature is about to kick off its first session since three licensed marijuana dispensaries opened in the state, providing cannabis products for hundreds of patients. Now advocates are hopeful that lawmakers are ready to dramatically expand that program to thousands more Texans who stand to benefit.

Military veterans lobbying for an end to federal classification of marijuana as a lethal substance with no redeeming medicinal value may be closer to that goal than ever before, given the midterm election results.

“Every day they find new medical uses for cannabis. It’d be sad if we continued to keep putting our heads in the sand.”

Check out the groups advocating for senior citizens who need access to cannabis.
