Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) has introduced legislation to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level.

Virginia has received 49 applications from medical-cannabis companies hoping to be among the first to set up shop in the state, giving officials plenty of options as they prepare to hand out five licenses this summer.

Stricter rules on testing, packaging and labeling of products loom large for the state’s pot industry, possibly weeding out smaller players.

For the first time, the party has allowed advocates in favor of decriminalizing marijuana possession to have a booth in the convention hall.

Like it or not, starting July 1st people in Vermont will be able to possess up to an ounce of marijuana.

Massachusetts is set to launch recreational marijuana sales next month, which certainly has cannabis fans excited seeing as they're the first state to allow sales east of the Mississippi River.
