Next year, a handful of state legislatures will seriously consider cannabis legalization, and voters in up to 10 states could face a question about the legalization of cannabis for medical or adult use on their November ballots.

Tuesday’s state and local elections across the U.S. saw several gains for the marijuana reform movement, as well as some potential setbacks.

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) finalized its plans to authorize the cultivation of 3,200,000 grams of marijuana for research purposes next year -- a 30 percent increase from 2019’s quota.

The Senate approved spending legislation on Thursday that extends a provision protecting medical marijuana states from federal interference.

For the first time in history, a congressional committee has approved a bill to end federal marijuana prohibition.

Two Pennsylvania state senators introduced Senate Bill 350 in Harrisburg on Tuesday which would allow adults 21 and older to possess, cultivate and purchase cannabis from licensed retailers.
