Law & Crime

The state of Texas is taking a big step toward legitimizing the use of CBD oils. It’s removing hemp from the state’s list of controlled substances on April 5.

Doctors would have wider discretion to prescribe marijuana to patients under a proposal before the General Assembly.

Baltimore prosecutors won’t charge people for marijuana possession, but police are still making arrests. Result: a hazy cannabis stalemate.

The distinction has caused confusion for members of law enforcement who encounter shipments of hemp during the performance of their duties.

The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) quietly issued an advisory earlier this month clarifying rules around mailing cannabis preparations, saying that “some CBD products derived from industrial hemp can be mailable under specific conditions.”

Following legalization in 2016, and as laws continue to take shape at the state level, the Kittery School Committee will review a new medical marijuana administration policy at its next meeting on Tuesday.
