Law & Crime

Medical marijuana patients caught a break last week when state regulators increased the amount of pot cardholders can buy in one shopping trip to 8 ounces, after officials cut the limit to 1 ounce in August on suspicion of nefarious purchases being made.

City alcohol regulators in Asheville say they're making some preparations to sell marijuana should it become legal in North Carolina.

Georgia lawmakers are recommending that the state government pass laws next year to allow hemp farming and cannabis oil distribution.

Oregon lawmakers will consider making it illegal for businesses to fire employees who flunk drug tests for using marijuana off the clock, reviving a workers’ rights campaign that failed in the statehouse last year.

California regulators on Friday said marijuana deliveries can be made anywhere in the state, even in locales that ban cannabis.
