Denver Approves Cannabis Smoking Lounges and More

Just this past week, Denver’s city council approved regulations for cannabis smoking lounges, delivery, and social equity licenses.  

This has long been an ongoing effort and the goal is to further open the industry for the city. 

These new laws will now allow cannabis deliveries only to residential addresses where customers will be able to order up to one ounce of flower, eight grams of concentrate or edibles containing up to 800mg of THC.

The measure will also allow for social smoking lounges and make a permanent feature of drive-thru or walk-up windows for businesses who opted to provide that service during COVID.  

Even more, these new regulations will reserve some of these business licenses especially for social equity applicants until 2027. 

A New Political Party Dedicated to Cannabis 

Next in news, 

there’s a new political party in town for the state of Nebraska

The Legal Marijuana Now party got approval as an official political party and has been given the OK to begin activities. 

The party was first established in Minnesota in 1998 to contest drug prohibition and is now recognized in Nebraska where it’s notoriously difficult for balloc are notoriously difficult to get approved.  

Legal Marijuana Now’s platform aims to legalize home cultivation, expunge convictions, end employee drug testing, abolish the DEA and use hemp agriculture to address environmental issues. 

So, if you live in Nebraska and want medical cannabis legalized in the state, be sure to check out Legal Marijuana Now.

US Botanical Garden Might Display Hemp Plants

And lastly, 

The US Botanic Garden in DC may soon host cannabis plants for display. 

3 Congress members sent a letter to the executive director of the Botanic Garden requesting that the facility include a display of both male and female hemp plants. 

Hemp has a very close relationship with US history as it was a major commodity until the 1930’s when it suddenly became illegal.

In the letter to the Botanic Gardens in DC, the Congress members stated, “Given that hemp is legal and enjoys national, bipartisan support, now is an appropriate time for the Botanic Garden to display hemp plants…  Hemp is a rapidly growing commodity, has numerous value chains and is used in the food, health and wellness, and traditional industrial sectors.”

It would make complete sense to celebrate a plant that has served America since its beginnings. Stay tuned to see if it works out!
