Law & Crime

The rollout of statewide medical and recreational marijuana programs typically is a grindingly slow process that can take years. Not so in Oklahoma, which moved with lightning speed once voters approved medical cannabis in June.

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.

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

In a climate of increasing tolerance the number of marijuana formulas and extracts being brought to market has exploded, opening the door to challenges from patent-holders.
