Marijuana could take the next step toward joining pinot noir, craft beer and hazelnuts on Oregon's list of famous exports, under a proposal likely to go before state lawmakers in the new year.

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.

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.

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.
